hello from my nerdy face today. i got some new glasses for the first time in four years (but more on that below). i chucked this on last minute to go and meet a friend for a frankie & benny’s pig out session, gotta love their cheap lunch menu! even though i didn’t have dessert for once (i’m typically a cinnamon waffle kinda girl), i did eat a lot of pizza and garlic dough balls, which is totally fine with me. i would eat that kind of food every day if i could. i want some just typing it now… mm…
anyways, i would like to rave about something with you, if i may, and it’s my lipstick. although you may not be able to see it that well, it’s hot rose sinner by lipstick queen and i am in love. i have never experienced a lipstick that has a matte finish yet is so utterly moisturising and just a plain dream to wear. i got it (along with the rose sinner shade) in my recent space NK order and, having never tried the brand before, i now want every other shade from the sinner collection. just go swatch them, i promise you it’s worth it.
onto my glasses!

they are lovely aren’t they! well, i like them anyways. it’s so refreshing to see something different staring back at me in the mirror when i can’t be bothered to put my contact lenses in! i won these in a twitter competition which was hosted by temporary secretary from the lovely pretavoir, an online glasses specialist. they’re actual prescription glasses (i’m blind, not pretentious) and model number ray ban 5279 2000 incase any of you are interested! anyways, pretavoir were really helping in sorting them out for me, especially as i didn’t have a clue about my prescription etc. but they were lovely and didn’t mind my stupid questions (of which there were many). even if i hadn’t won these, i would thoroughly recommend their service and i am tempted to go to them for some sunglasses in future, as they’re all amazingly priced compared to buying them from a store!

ps. i’m running a twitter giveaway at the moment! all you have to do is RT this tweet to win a £20 voucher to spend at see it want it own it.
