OOTN: Stalking Behaviour...

You guys.
I have a confession to make...

A deep, dark and extremely sinister confession.
One which will change your opinion of me *insert dramatic pause here* FOREVERRR.

I am in need of help.
My behaviour is out of control.

I'm a...

I know, I know *sobs*, it's bad.
The police are probably on their way to me, blue sirens ablaze as I type these very words, and I wouldn't blame them.
I should be locked up, laptop confiscated and chained to the dirty bars of the cell which will no doubt become my home for twenty years or more, (let's be real here, this is the UK, I'd get a month max) for such a heinous crime cannot be ignored.

The victim of my stalking surely felt uneasy at my constant presence, my prying eyes fixed permanently upon their page.
My IP address listed forever in their traffic sources, lurking, waiting...
They were being watched.

But who is my victim, you ask?
Who is this poor soul, being torturously spied on like poor Bambi's mother in the hunters' shot gun viewfinder?

Their name, ladies, (and sneaky gents) is, and more specifically this page right here...

What I wore:

Jumpsuit: Missguided £37.99
Shoes: ASOS (bought on eBay) 
Necklace: eBay £1.98

It's's all true.
This is my big confession.

My obsession began when out for the evening, and seeing my friend and fashion twin Chezni looking pretty damn awesome, (as per) in the most beautiful jumpsuit I have ever seen.
As soon as she uttered the words 'Missguided' in response to my 'where ever did you stumble across such beauty?' question...that was it.
See Missguided is familiar and well known territory to me; I've had many dealings and mini stalking episodes with them before, all resulting in the parting of funds from my bank account, and my items-of-clothing : number-of-coat-hangers ratio being ridiculously reduced.
Not to mention the fact that they're being stored in my brothers wardrobe, because I don't have one.
He's thrilled.

While patiently awaiting pay day, Missguided were the poor victims of my obsession, stalked almost daily, and in receipt of way too much of my attention and lusting desires, (just checking it was still in stock, of course) but alas...that day arrived, and in an almost Gollum-style incident, my precious new jumpsuit arrived.

It's like fate.
Not only did my size selection gamble pay off, (this NEVER happens) but it is just divine!
It's plain black aside from the golden detail of the detachable belt, and has a one-shoulder style which is a surprising hit!

I've not had it long and all I'll say is I'm most definitely an outfit repeater AND PROUD BABY!

I'll probably get married in it one day, uh-huh - who wants a white dress when you can wear this fiiine piece of umm, polyester?
Darn sight cheaper too ;)

On my face I wore the slightly more vamped up 'usual', given that I was venturing into the unfamiliar territory that is, 'town' on a night out...but with my new and faithful friend 'Lady Danger' on my lips.
Oh and red nails for good measure, cos after all it is the month of loveee, it matched my lipstick.

You'll be happy to know I'm now cured, (albeit temporarily I'm sure) of my Missguided stalking problem.
Speaking to you guys about it has cleansed me of my sins and I now feel relieved.
You're like my church or something.
The internet is the wall thingy we're speaking through.

Missguided I'm sure feel a similar type of relief, I'm no longer drooling at their jumpsuit section, in between switching tabs, longingly gazing at my online banking page and wondering just how many more seconds it is until pay day...

Until I next find something beautiful,
which I'm fully aware could be like now, so I'm choosing not to even look.
Willpower, that is.
Missguided, you're off the hook.

Sadly, the same cannot be said for Motel Rocks.
This dress has been on my radar for like a year or something ridic, and it's STILL not in the bleeding sale!
Umm, just so you know, Motel, until it is...I'll be watching you...

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish: Soft & Gentle. Review and err...Sing-a-Long.

*psssst, press play*

I've been blinking, I've been blinking...
I can't keep my eyes off it's sparkles baby,
I've been thinking, I've been thinking,
Why can't I keep my fingers swatching? 
MSF I want you, na na...
Why can't I keep my fingers swatching? 
MSF I want you, na na...

Shines like ice, shines like ice,
Feeling like an animal with this beauty on my screen,
Flashing lights, flashing lights, 
My iPhone camera, clicking, clicking, clicking,
MSF I want you, na na...
Can't keep my eyes off those reviews,
MSF, I want you, na na...

Drunk in loveeeeeeee.

I wound up on the MAC site saying,
"How the hell have I not bought this?"
Oh baby,
Drunk in looooooooooveeeee,
Clicked it online,
Last thing I remember is me clicking 'checkout' and getting that confirmation email,
Drunk in loooooooveeee...


It happened.
After several months years of lusting, umm-ing and ahh-ing, and just plain drooling after MAC's 'Soft and Gentle' Mineralize Skinfinish, my selfish needs have finally got the better of me.
I have caved, and am now the proud owner of, well...the most beautiful piece of champagne-pinky peach goodness ever to grace my letterbox, my iPhone lense, and now ladies, (and pesky gents) my face.

MAC's 'Soft and Gentle' is, well...every bit as beautiful, stunning and gorgeous as I ever imagined it could be.
The 378364885822 blog posts I've previously read on it didn't lie.
(and given that it costs £22 I'm glad they didn't!)

I really shouldn't worry about the price, you know.
I feel I may never, ever need to purchase another highlighting product again, for as long as I shall live!
A whopping 10g of product comes encased and swirled, all marble like and purrrty, in MAC's little circular pot, and when I say I can't imagine how long it would take to even dent, I'm not joking!
I'll probably cry when it does, however...

Colour-wise, it's just dreamy!
Highlighters I've used previously have been, well, a little pale, (ironically two of the three were bronzers) and left me in severe danger of looking as though I was trying to make tribal make-up a new 'thing', with white stripes on the tops of my cheeks, (stemming from my lack of ability to know when to stop) but 'Soft and Gentle' is just slightly darker and more peach toned, meaning it's less stark and more skin tone friendly - in fact I imagine and have seen how amazing this looks on any skin tone, it's literally a gem of peachy genius!

In another amazing cure for my lack or stopping power, (human glitter-ball's never look good you guys, don't make my mistake!) 'Soft and Gentle' isn't overly glittery, if in fact at all; it's so finely milled that each tiny, shimmering particle blends seamlessly into your skin, creating a natural glow and radiance that makes the luxury price tag even more worth it, and my sun-starved February skin appear surprisingly healthy.

I use this on the tops of my cheekbones, and as an inner corner highlight on my eyes, (my new 'thing' you guys, it's bad) but it can be dusted lightly all over for a dewy effect.
Lasting power-wise, so far, so good! I've retained my glowy cheeks for the full length of my make-up wear, including a Jillian Michaels session!
Naughty I know, I'm normally so good at the gym, but like...I was too excited and couldn't bear to remove it before I got going :(
Ah was a good test, right?
Worth a blemish or two...

Overall, I sense that despite only owning this a short period of time, I have now found 'the one' when it comes to highlighting products - I genuinely can't see myself venturing away from this any time soon, and equally can't wait for Summer when it can be seen in actual sunny daylight, in all its shimmering glory!

To conclude and add yet more cheese...I'm just a bit Drunk In Love.
*terrible, just terrible, I'll go hide my face in shame now, lol.*


Oh Bey, you actual dream girl, you.

I bet she like invented 'Soft and Gentle' or something...
She probably just like sang to a tub of baby powder and it all came together to listen, beginning to sparkle the moment her perfect breath graced its surface.

Yeah, MAC.
You wish you were that good.

I imagine that Beyonce herself could and possibly does wear 'Soft and Gentle' herself, I mean, it's fit for a Queen after all...
Some crazy part of my subconscious wishes to believe I could apply this and somehow just be her, in more ways than just singing ruining her songs when I'm alone, not caring for the safety of the windows, nor the floorboards (which are definitely old and should almost certainly not have fairy elephants prancing around on them, recreating a somewhat terrifying version of 'Survivor')...

Indeed, in my dreams I choose to believe that I may have a piece of cheekbone gracing gorgeousness in common with Beyonce, and therefore am like related to her or something.
Sadly, however I'm sure Bey's cheeks are scattered with naturally occurring, pure diamond fragments, grown from her own pores...
