I've purchased a few new items lately and thought I'd share. 


My recent makeup haul has been inspired by Lisa Eldridge's amazing blog. For the lips I've picked up Chanel Coco Shine in Candeur which is a barely there pink (Amanda has this as well and her colouring is much darker than mine so it works for just about any skin tone). I've also picked up two new Chanel Glossimers in Bagatelle and BonBon. After debating whether to buy the Urban Decay NAKED palette, I finally caved and decided to try it. I have to admit, it has a pretty great range of colours. I also picked up the Chanel Les 4 Ombres eyeshadow set in Kaska Beige after seeing Lisa's video on how she applied the colours to Clemence Poesy (one of my style crushes). And I knew I had to pick up the YSL cream blush after seeing it in this post from Lisa on a minimal makeup look with a pink flush. The last colour is a BareMinerals eyeshadow in Cashmere. 

I also ordered this AMAZING white blazer from Zara. I'm astounded by how great Zara is right now.  There are so many fantastic things (especially the collection of blazers) it's extremely difficult to decide on what to get.


  1. I have always wanted to try the ysl blush! and the chanel coco shine lipstick but always go towards drugstore dupes, one of these days! Lovely spring make up haul.

    1. The YSL blush is fantastic Daphne! It goes on really easily, lasts all day and the colour gives such a pretty flush. It's definitely one of the best purchases I've made in a while. I've been wearing it daily.

  2. Love Lisa's blog, thanks for introducing!
