Mail, Hair and Random Happenings

So Monday was a busy mail day...

Packages from mac, BM and a lovely little parcel from a sweet friend arrived ^_^

I was so excited to recieve my mac face and body in white and can't wait to give it a proper test run this weekend! I don't think I'll be doing a full on review because well...there's a tonne of them already out there I would imagine as this product isn't exactly new.


I also received these lovely Illamasqua polishes curtsey of the gorgeous Kierra over at Look What the Bat's Dragged in; thank you, beautiful! I encourage you to check out her blog if you're into nail polish at all, she has great taste and an extensive collection of nail polish.

  I didn't waste time painting my nails with Hemlock, I wish I could properly capture the colour; it's amazing!

And lastly the freak stew skirt from Black Milk, love this print!

And I guess it's on to other news...

This green fairy had to pop into...a disguise :-( Looking in the mirror makes me incredibly depressed but at least this way I should be able to get a job and get the hell out of this cesspool.

And here's some more recent pics of the hair that's been around for about a week now..

Max and I enjoying cuddles

Looking more and more like *my* Shepard every day :P

 Awesome cup Luke gave me :D

Aaaand some Halloween stuff..I've enjoyed the last few weeks without the folks and as such have decorated the house...Though I'll probably have to take it down today as I don't think they'll let me keep them :/


 Making bats, thanks Gothically Yours! Here's the tutorial.

I think I might sign off for tonight

MAC Meets Rick Baker

So I've never really been blown away by MAC products, I've always been drawn more towards brands like Illamasqua which seem to want to harness creativity and individuality. However the latest collection brought out by MAC for Halloween had me do a double take. So most of the items I was all yeah, cool but I'll pass..but then, what's this? FACE AND BODY IN WHITE?! BUY BUY BUY!

I know it's available any time in macpro, but I can't be bothered faking being a professional make up artist or getting a professional friend to get it and you never really know for sure buying elsewhere whether you're getting a fake product. Honestly, why isn't it just a standard product? I mean, surely there are some pale non-goths who would want to mix their custom foundation colour? Silly companies, you can pretend all you want that pale people don't exist but it won't make it true.

So yeah...Now I'mma be poor for a while but I regret nothing.

Being Sick Sucks; What My Day Entailed

So since about Thursday or something last week I've been struck down with some variety of man flu that each day after waking up I've noticed has gotten that slight bit worse. You know the type, not really anything life threatening just general lethargy and a bunch of symptoms that don't actually impede you in a large way from doing anything but make you feel like absolute crap whilst you force yourself through it and as such turn you into the biggest complainy-pants in the universe.

Well today whilst on day 6 or so of this ever-growing pain in the general ears-nose-throat area, I also noticed upon waking that my eyes were oozing some sort of delicious gunk that was just another punch in the face and so despite my doctor-avoiding efforts so far, I kind'a had to pay him a visit today know, I could actually continue to see outta ma' face.

Aaannyway, I decided I'd earned some takeaway food seeing as I was feeling so miserable and so grabbed a meatball sub and some nectar of the gods on the way home and hauled up in the back room on the squishy lounge chair and enjoyed 'Let Me In' or as some (myself included) may know it, the American remake of the masterpiece 'Let the Right One In'. Yes I say masterpiece, I adored it.

To my utter amazement it wasn't god-awful! However that may be due to me being slightly biased because Chloe Moretz starred in it...She's amazing, right? I love her anyhow. So, yes, it wasn't as visually appealing, haunting or as artistic as the original. Nor as romantic. Still, I would recommend it. It's not often Hollywood don't completely fuck something you love up, so take the opportunity whilst it's around. Also I loved the music in this film. I must say, there were times when it bordered on something very akin to Hitchcock and I could literally feel my heart beating against my ribcage. I love when that happens!

Something which I love about both films and which I'm sure some mothers in America would be outside whatever studio produced this waving their rolling pins about in the air in protest about is the way this pre-teen romance (I use the term romance loosely) is portrayed. I'm sure people were up in arms in regard to a naked 12 year old girl sharing a bed with a boy but it's so..funny in a way. Owen is on the cusp of puberty and such has a natural curiosity about the opposite sex yet he's not quite sure what it is he wants because well, he's not really quite there yet and it's all so innocent and adorable. It makes me chuckle a bit every time. Dunno if that's weird but I love seeing things I foresee as being a wee bit controversial, especially when they depict perfectly natural human behaviour. And as we know, nobody should be portraying perfectly natural human behaviour, how ludicrous. 

Anyway I should stop ranting. I feel a strong urge to play Dragonage again and so I think I might do that. I'm off to slay baddies and romance elves in a paracetamol-fuelled haze, my lovelies. Hope this hasn't been too boring, I don't normally do a lot of writing on here. Lemme know, I like to know what you guys wanna see.
