Military Elements

How is everyone doing on this fine Monday? I am off today after a 7-day clusterf**k at work so I am doing great! I had a whole bunch of boring domestic tasks to do today but for some reason I slept in until almost noon! ARGH! WTF? I find that the older I get I can't sleep in anymore which is a good thing as I have sh*t to do so that was kind of weird! 
It is June but the weather here has been cool enough to dress as though it is fall so I am happy (my garden seedlings are a bit crabby but they will hopefully recover!) Today I am posting one of my favourite outfits that I wear when it is in my best interests to look like a functional adult. I love military-themed style elements; my blazer has some milirary-style buttons and my jeans are camouflage print. I have also added some alternative yet subtle jewellery and these things allow me to enjoy my outfit even though I look pretty toned-down.

THE EQUIPMENT

Tarte Park Avenue Princess Bronzer, Catrice Yellow Submagreen quad, Estee Lauder Cyber Eyes shadow in Cyber Green, UD 24/7 Liners in Stash and Mildew, Tokyomilk Dark Get Lucky Lip Tint.
MAKEUP


I often do this kind of look for work with taupe and olive green eyeshadows.

Now that I have slept in it is time to get down to business! I am going to cook up a nice bolognese sauce to freeze for when I have company next week. Maybe I will get in some cleaning as well!

What are you up to today?

  4. Ugh, I know, when did our lives turn into this? Weekends are no longer fun time, they're DO ALL THE ERRANDS time. We've been traveling on the weekends though, and it's been exhausting, because that R&R time is gone! I love traveling, but man, I think I'm happy to stay put for the next long while!
