The Week #1

The Week in Instagram @ ViviannaMakeup: Getting nifty with nudes from my ‘A Sheer Coat’ post // Homemade Butternut Squash Soup & Spelt Bread, the ‘not eating as much crap’ kick continues // You can find me in the beauty book section // Cutty Sark laughs // Review in progress // Cirque du Soleil, one word – incredible // I have no idea how I managed to convince the boy that it was Ryan Gosling film night, but it was // The über simple beauty edit // Each week I add a new skincare item to my stash and slowly expand my hold on the bathroom shelf

Product Pick of the Week: Essie Ballet Slippers – I negated to include this natural nail beautifer in my Sheer Coat Edit as I’d already mentioned it on the blog this year (yep, I love it that much). But it’s been adorning my nails all week and I bloomin’ love its ‘fresh from the manicurists’ look.

Blog Post of the Week: I’m cheating a bit as this post was published last week, but nothing has got me more excited for a fresh round of beauty launches than Adrienne’s Spring 2013 New Product Lineup – anyone else eyeing up those Rimmel Apocalips?

Must-Watch of the Week: Not-beauty related, but if you don’t cry while watching Tom Fletcher’s Wedding Speech, then who are you?!?

Added to the Wishlist: Those pesky NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils keep cropping up everywhere and the peer influence is getting a little too intense. But what colour to choose? I think Cruella could be mine very, very soon.

    I like the new style of the week in photos with also those ‘picks of the week’, great idea! 🙂 xx

  • I’m loving this new style of post, its really interesting and hopefully will help me find some new bloggers/youtubers/products! Your picture collages are lovely as well!

  • Victoria Carlisle

    I absolutely bawled when I saw Tom Fletcher’s wedding speech it was so lovely! The part where he started singing to his parents was incredibly touching.

  • Liora

    The wedding speech is absolutely amazing! Cried my eyes out! xxx

  • Oh my, I’m so jealous of you right now that you went to see Cirque du Soleil – it looks so amazing! And by the way: I found out every man secretly has a little man crush on Ryan Gosling, so that’s probably why…

  • Tammy

    oh….Cutty Sark is only 10 minutes away from where I stay! Just missed you!

  • Rebecca

    i haven’t seen this speech, i shall go watch it now!

    Do a review on the Velvet Matte lip pencils once you purchase one (because we both know you’ll get it!) Matte lip products are my favorite!!

  • Pippjones

    ah I love this new feature, the little round up at the end is so helpful! 🙂 x

  • Yay, I like this! Love the round ups at the end of the post with added links. 🙂

  • Harris

    Cruelly is the best, I’ve been using it for four years and I have yet to find a better red!

  • i like this new round up too! I like Nars Velvet Gloss pencils better than the matte ones. Mexican Rose is a gorgeous shade! 🙂

  • EH
