The Week #4

The Week in Instagram @ViviannaMakeup: The nude collective of Clinique’s new Chubby Sticks for Eyes // Freckled fingertips // I finally jumped on the Diptyque fragrance bandwagon // The results of a Space NK makeover, which didn’t have me reaching for the babywipes, post coming on Monday // Q. What’s in my handbag? A. A lot  // Fully fledged members of The Breakfast Club // The now weekly cookie shot // My favourite street in Brighton for obvious reasons // Meeting Stella and not playing it cool

Product Pick of the Week: Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm – a desk-side essential, this ‘melt into your mitts’ cream rocks. Orange, lavender and almond scented it leaves my palms and cuticles nourished without slipping all over the keyboard.

Blog Post of the Week: There’s only one post that has played on my mind this week, and it’s this one from BritishBeautyBlogger. Bioderma is heading to the UK? Do tell more.

Must-Watch of the Week: Another off-topic pick this week, but the latest Kid President installment got me feeling all smooshy and inspired at the same time. A cute kid in a suit? Somebody pass the tissues (again!).

Added to the Wishlist: Although last week’s purchase prediction didn’t come true, I have a feeling this week’s will. I’m low on my last standing Diptyque Figuier Candle and I’m just not sure I’ll be able to function without it. Dramatic, but most probably true and I’m not willing to test that theory.

    That would be so exciting for you guys if bioderma is going to be available in the UK. I don’t know what I would do if it wasn’t so easy for me to get. I’ve been wanting to try the dyptique candles, but like bioderma to you, they are hard to come buy in Canada 🙂

    • Can’t wait for it to finally arrive! 🙂

  • Great impressions!
