The title of today's post seems appropriate, 'Pure Zen' epitomizes how I've been feeling all week long.
Calm, content and serene.
I'd even go as far as saying this is the best I've felt throughout my pregnancy.
It's also paying a little homage to my new lipstick love, Pure Zen by MAC.
I find nude-toned lipsticks particularly suit my complexion, and as I've always favored a natural make-up look, they are a safe choice for me.
It may sound ridiculous, but I honestly think I was meant to own this. I popped into MAC one lunchtime specifically for this shade, and out of the thousands of lipsticks all perfectly lined up, this was the first one I reached for.
If there was such a thing as 'lipstick destiny', I think this was it!
Pure Zen is sightlier peachy toned version of my usual go-to, Hue. Cream Sheen formulas are my favorite offerings from MACs lipstick collection; I find them creamy upon application, long lasting and they don't tend to cause dry lips.
I think I'll always love my nudes. I know they aren't particularly adventurous or Autumnal as such, but anything pinky or peachy-nude and I find it terribly hard to resist. I can certainly say with confidence that this one wont be leaving my daily-make-up bag for the foreseeable future.
(Check out the dimples... I'm sure they've grown?! They seem to be looking very prominent indeed...)
I'm afraid my outfit is somewhat 'last season' this week...
Coat- Anthropoligie last winter
Spotty shirt- Urban Outfitters last summer
Ballet Shoes by Essie being my current preference. You can't beat an autumn pastel shade, and I thought it went rather well with my coat and lipstick of choice. Although you definitely need to apply two coats to get a good color pay off, I think it's worth it, what a beautiful shade.
It turns our condensing almost 25 years into a 10 minute into a narrative script is a terribly difficult task, which has ended up taking hours. I wish I was exaggerating, but unfortunately, I'm not.
So, I exhausted myself with that this weekend, drafting the cartoons until the early hours, and filming the final thing. I couldn't have done it without the husbands help and encouragement, he put up with a alot of preggo tantrums this weekend (you can even see a mini one at the end of my latest pregnancy update video)... Bless him, he deserves a medal.
Finally, I suppose there's no need to say really that I have been ferociously 'pinning'. Seriously, my Pinterest addiction has grown, I'm not quite sure how I'm ever getting any kind of real work done! This week I've been obsessing over my Autumn board, and have created a Wish list, Home and Beauty board too.
How have your weeks been? Have you tried Pure Zen before? Are you excited about my 'Draw my Life' video?
