Nothing to wear and yet my ‘wardrobe’ currently consists of a bursting to the brim wardrobe, two chests of drawers, two more drawers under my bed, a rail in my parents room and half of my Mum’s wardrobe. If Carlsberg did irony…
But that aside, I spotted it, I loved it,
I had a slight hissy fit when I saw that it wasn’t in the sale, and I bought it.
I’ve only ever owned a “fashionable rucksack” once in my life apart from this one, and that was when I was a runner on BBC’s The Apprentice. I knew we were going to be carrying props, snacks, call sheets, the kitchen sink etc. so knew a rucksack was the way forward, however I just couldn’t bring myself to use a big, practical backpacking-esque bag that everyone else did. So yes, I had one, it was brown and it was great. But it didn’t compare to this.
So, why do I love what is essentially just a souped up rucksack so much? Because – old age quote to come, right here – it’s so ridiculously practical carrying all the makeup, all the snacks, all the stationary etc. whilst also being so comfortable to wear, especially when worn with both straps.
Yes, I wear both straps sometimes, yes I probably look like a complete and utter tool but no, I actually don’t care. It is also a really lovely, sturdy material and in my
bias eyes, it’s completely perfect for me. Zara, you did good gurl!
Jesus, that was a lot of chat about a rucksack. Let’s move on to the next favourite of late.
This is one of Maybelline’s ColorDrama lip pencil’s and I have the shade here in Minimalist. It’s not particularly new, it’s not particularly unique, but I really, really do love it. It’s a shimmery (but not, “Hi I’m just one big glitter particle, look at me!!” in your face) medium/nude pink that really lifts and brightens the face – Quality Street carb face be gone. Winning! – and is just very flattering on my skin tone. It’s long-lasting but moisturising… yeah, it’s love*.
*Until the next haul comes round and I’ve cheated on it with the latest lip product release.
