Purchases...

I haven't been a great blogger as we all have the flu! Poor Esra has bronchilitis again and I'm hoping she has a magical speedy recovery. I snapped up some photos of things I had purchased whilst in Turkey and thought I would update you with that at least...



Rings...



Necklace...



Bracelet...



A 'Flormar' baked face powder/blush/highlighter and a 'Golden Rose' taupe nail polish to add to the family.



The 'Flormar' Terracotta powder in the shade #25 is seriously gorgeous. The veining is beautiful with colours ranging from a cool toned bronze, peach, coral and pink.





The payoff is great too, it has a lot of dimension and reminds me of a much more bronze toned 'Stereo Rose' mineralised skin finish from Mac. There is a little bit of finely milled glitter but it looks truly natural when applied to the skin.

If you live in Turkey or have a 'Flor Mar' counter in your country, snap this shade up!



I did a couple of duty free purchases, one being the 'Coconut Passion' body mist from Victoria's Secret and Mac 'A Perfect Day' lipstick.



The shade 'A Perfect Day' (amplified finish) is stunning and great for NC30-40 skin tones, it's a nice nude that isn't hard to wear at all and doesn't need much eyemakeup to pull off.

Here are some similar shades...


In order...
  1. Mac - Hue,
  2. Mac - Innocence Beware
  3. Estee Lauder - Vanilla Truffle
  4. Mac - A Perfect Day
  5. YSL Rouge Volupte #2 Sensual Silk


I also managed to buy myself a 'Nine West' bag from Park Bravo.




And a purse to match. I wouldn't normally go for something so ermmmm what's the word I'm looking for? 'Polished', but would opt for something more distressed and vintage looking but this makes a nice change and makes me feel all grown up! :)



Go Me! Who knows when my next update will be?! I'm currently sitting in my jim jams watching Charlie and Lola with Esra and the Hubz praying we all get better soon! xx

'A Perfect Day' is my most favorite nude MAC lipstick. It's a shame it was limited edition, I can only hope that they re-promote it in the future so I can stock up them!

Geçmiş olsun minik Esra'ya.
Benim yeğenimde de bronşit var. Babaannesi, yani teyzem onu Tahin-Pekmezle iyileştirdi. :)
Gerçi Esra için daha erken olabilir ama yaşını doldurunca tavsiye ederim.
Balın yanısıra Tahin-Pekmez gerçekten mucize gibi.

Tekrar geçmiş olsun.
