Birthday Beauty

High End Beauty Haul, Diptique, Chanel, Omorovicza

Apologies for the sporadic posts!  I promise the beauty (spam) blog is set to continue now!  It's been a hectic few weeks.  I started a new job and hated it. Which gave me ALL of the anxious feelings.  I'm not one to job hop.  I've always had a career plan.  I graduated and have worked in the one industry for years but an opportunity came up so I took it but it wasn't for me.  I stayed a month (eek!) but thankfully I'm three weeks into a new job and love it phew!

It was also my birthday recently.  I can't believe I'm *whispers* 34.  If someone would please come and sort my life out for me, accepting applications and eh retinol!  I had a great weekend that started with a pankcake and prosecco fueled bruch, an afternoon of doing what I do best (shopping) and eh some piercings (you'll know, if you follow me on Insta') followed by dinner with ALL the red wine and several G&Ts... hic.  When it comes to present my friends and family know what I'm like when it comes to skincare and beauty stuff so typically stick to gift cards etc. but I was truly spoiled and received some lovely gifts that I thought I'd share with you today. 

A mini Diptyque Candle in Vanille.  I haven't opened this yet as I've so many candles on the go but I love rich, sweet scents so can't wait to burn this.  I think this will be a lovely warming fragrance once the weather gets cooler.  And when it's run out, I'm totally going to use this for cotton buds...

Omorovicza Perfecting Lip Balm.  This needs no introduction.  Everyone knows me too well. I've at least two of these with me at all times.  HG lip balm for me.

Lastly I received two pieces from the new Chanel cosmetics collection their eye shadow quad in #268 Candeur et Experience and the waterproof long lasting eyeliner in #929 Agape.  An all matte quad, I can't wait to use this!
