Woohoo! After 3 FAILED attempts at uploading pictures and writing this post, it is finally working!! So, hello, and let's get to it! I have mega exciting things to report!
So, nothing much has been happening over here at the minute. I read all of the books in George R.R. Martin's Ice and Fire series in 3 weeks, then pre-ordered the new one to arrive on the day.....it didn't. Was soooo annoyed! It finally showed up 3 days AFTER it's release, what's the point?! I could've gone out and bought it myself at midnight! I should have just gone out to by it myself, stupid online store offering pre-ordering of books. Terrible service, also, a few of my fellow geek friends had this problem also. We shook our fists at the turribleness of it all *shakes fist*.
Was so worked up over this book that we decided to go out for lunch. Well, that was the plan. We left the flat at about 3 so it was way too late for a luncheon. Then in the cafe we went to i couldn't really find anything i fancied, until i stumbled across the strüdel section of the menu! We decided on apple strüdel, expecting a generous piece of cake with a bit of cream.....then this beast showed up......
I'm not sure how well you can see it BUT on the plate is a giant scoop of some sort of raspberry ripple ice cream, a dollop of whipped cream, weird crumb things, and that cold custard tasting sauce. It was insane. Felt so sick after. Oh, and then i got pooed on by a bird. It went in my hair!! Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeew, so gross. I had to get it out in the bathroom with tissue and, lucky for me no-one came in while i was de-pooing, else they would have seen me jumping around the bathroom like one of the tree folk people from Zelda trying to avoid touching my poo hair.
After this though we walked to the flea market and i got to buy a bag that i'd had my eye on for a while, well, maybe a week lol. It's amazing though, huge, and this grey denim sort of material. So nice, it's really boyish though, a rucksack. Makes me feel proper German.
So, onto the amazing news!! This is me, i was heading out to deep clean a flat. In like 30 degree heat. Last week i'd been shopping and found this....
Eye shadow base, a primer i think. It stinks like chlorine, but it is the most amazing product i have EVER, like EVEEEERRRR, come across. Ever. I go to a lot of gigs, mainly punk, so one can expect to get quite hot and sweaty. I always go to the toilet inbetween bands and my eye make up has, inevitably, creased like a bitch at the top of my eye lid. I just look a sweaty eye make up'ed mess.
I have heard about eye shadow primer before, but i never believed it would work. I'm quite sceptical when it comes to products promising me things. But, this little pot was less than €2, so i thought, why not. Take it home and i wear it that night to an office warming party me and the boyf went to. My eye shadow stayed put, but i assumed this was because i didn't really move around a lot. So i brushed off my eye shadow base victory as a fluke. Until.......
This is a shot of my eye make up AFTER walking to the flat in 30-odd degree heat, which takes about half an hour/forty minutes. I then deep cleaned the flat, including hoovering, sweeping, and mopping a roughly 75sqm floor. Walked home feeling knackered. When i got in i checked my eye shadow and surely enough (don't call me shirley), there it was, exactly like it was when i first applied it about 5 hours earlier.
How have i gone so long without this little pot of treasure?! So, it's quite a big pot and will last me a while i think, but i want to try some other brands. This is the only one i've seen in Berlin, but i'm going home in a month so will scout out some others and find the ultimate eye shadow primer. So excited! I realise many people already know about this but like i said, cynic.
Now all i need is to find a decent, light foundation that evens my skin tone, and doesn't feel like it's just sitting on my face!
I also ordered some African black soap after reading some amazing reviews. I have pretty bad skin, i don't think it's acne, but sometimes it feels like it. So, after a particularly bad flare up this week i bit the bullet and ordered this miracle soap. I will keep y'alls updated as to how good it actually is. Must remember to take a 'before' photo of my hideous skin!
I did some illustrations this week but they need editing, so hopefully will have some drawings up soon :)
