YAY I love this time of year. Especially working in retail, love really is all around you with all the Valentines cards, all the cute fluffy bears and chocolates and this weekend I even get to create a wonderful flower display! Think of me on Friday morning, kids, I’ll be building the best the Valentines day flower display in the whole world. All those red roses in dozens, in singles and some even have glitter and shit on them.
There’s nothing like Valentines day to make you remember how unlovable and alone you are. YAY*.
So, on my day off yesterday, I was minding my own business. Submerging myself into the world of Pretty Little Liars in a feeble attempt to avoid thinking about my future alone with nothing but wine, cats and terrible internet (thanks Virgin Media) when I had a parcel delivered to my house.
Well, actually that’s lie. The postman left it at the neighbours because I wasn’t in. So I battled through the wind and rain to get it from a bearded man who has a stuffed fox in his living room 4 doors up.
I got my goods and then scurried home to the warmth of my house. Although it’s not really warm because the heating is shit and I spend most of my time wrapped in a One Direction blanket trying to warm more than just my heart.
I replace one of my housemates many coats with my dressing gown and opened the box to see my spoils.
To be faced with this:
DUN DUN DUUUUN
So yay*, now Valentine’s Day has managed to infiltrate itself into what was once the safety of my own home. And the Skinnedcartree (skinned cartree, if you’re [Google]).
I hate everyone.
Apart from you, I like you, you’re my special friend.
So, let’s see if this was worth all the doom it has caused me.
The Vintage Company Floral Slanted Tweezers // £8
YES I LOVE THESE. I always lose tweezers and these ones are so twee. She what I did there? I tried to make a joke but it didn’t really work. But let’s just with it.
Also, I need to sort my eyebrows out. I don’t know how some of you lot can fill your brows in every day. I’m lucky if I pluck mine. I generally just pluck them before a special occasion. Which is like, never.
Because nobody likes me and everybody hates me so let’s all go eat worms.
Wilkinson Sword Intuition Razor // £6.99
YES I LOVE THIS. Because I bought some reduced cartridges and when I got home, I realised they were for Wilkinson Sword instead of for the Venus razor. So it all worked out in the end. The idiot inside of me is pleased.
These are the ones that have the soap around them, which are probably the type that I avoid the most because it’s really hard to shave like, your knees and stuff because they are well bulky. Yes, well bulky is a term I am using. I am getting down with the South Yorkshire girl inside me.
I hope my reduced ones fit 😀
Naobay Protective Hair Mask Volume Conditioner // £10.64
YAY I LOVE THIS. Apart from the volume part. I have enough volume. But my hair is in such bad condition lately. It’s dry because of the winter and I really need something to nourish it. And cut it. I’ve not had my hair cut since May. That’s kind of gross.
I think this is the 3rd product I’ve had in Glossybox from Naobay. I’ve not used the others but maybe I should give them a go. Maybe. This means I probably won’t.
Nicka K 24 Hour Waterproof Eyeliner // £3.99
YAY I HATE THIS. It’s brown eyeliner and I never wear brown eyeliner. Only black. Like my future. But I might be open to change since my life is a disaster. To be honest, brown would probably suit me better as I’m quite fair.
It’s waterproof too so maybe I should start watching it when I watch the new Pretty Little Liars for when I get the feels. Sniff.
MUA Power Pout Glaze Low Voltage Gloss // £3.50
YAY I HATE THIS. I think lipgloss is for like, 13 year olds. Also the brush is weird and my hair would totally get stuck in it.
Plus I prefer the products I apply to my lips to be high voltage so I pass out for a bit, or at least until Valentines day is over.
Ok the end.
I really like the first three products. The eyeliner is meh and the lipgloss is dog shit. I wish they would stop putting gloss in the Glossybox. Petition to end all gloss, plz.
How’s your day? 🙂
