What Sundays are all about

For me Sundays are about 3 things:-

1) sleeping in late and lounging about the house all day (pyjamas optional)
2) catching up on blogs, YT etc.
3) experimenting with makeup

When you have no plans it's great to play around with different makeup looks, at the end of the day no one will see you and you can remove it and start over if you wish.

Today I stepped away from my usual black gel liner and opted for an eggplant shade in the form of Gosh's Funky Violet Velvet Touch Eye Liner. I can't remember the last time I was without my Blacktrack Fluidline, so you can say this is definitely out of my comfort zone.

I'm not usually one for pencil liners either however this has a creamy formula and is waterproof. This is true to it's word and will be a job for my cleanse off oil to remove.

This is how it looks on. You can apply it lightly or as heavily as you like.

The weekend also welcomes a change to adventurous nail colours. My nail of the day is Models Own Jade which I first spied in Augusts edition of Cosmopolitan and just had to have it.

If like me you don't like Barry M Mint Green. Try Jade Stone. It's got a thicker consistency so no streaking however I only applied this last night and already there are signs of chipping :s

What other colours are must haves from Model's Own?


  1. is that an engagement ring i spot?!?

  2. @sarahlou Yep, got engaged in May :)

  4. I love that purple shade - looks lovely with the colour of your eyes, and it's definitely a lot less harsh than black for daytime looks!
    Pretty nail polish as well!

I'll be posting another one next week. I also have monthly giveaways and will be posting my September giveaway in a couple of weeks.
