Paddington Bear is Coming to the BIG Screen!

I used to watch this show every day as a child, so I am so ecstatic about this 2014 release! I actually have Paddington Bear episodes on my iPad "for Edie"  ;) Are you excited for this movie?

NARS Orgasm "Get the Afterglow" Summer 2012

NARS' new ad campaign for the relaunch of it's cult classic "Orgasm" is pretty lovely. Lovely enough, that I did a mono-makeup look with all of the orgasm products. I was actually impressed with how wonderful, girly and soft they looked all together because the finishes were different enough. I smell of roses today (I'll also review my new smell obsession)  and I wanted to transcend the freshness experience to my face, you could say!  

Eyes: Nars Orgasm multiple all over eyes layered with Orgasm blush, Smashbox Espresso eyeliner in lower tear line, Nars eyeliner stylo in Nuit Blanches, Benefit "Are They Real?" mascara  Cheeks: Orgasm illuminator layered with Orgasm blush. Highlighter - Copacabana Lips: Lipgloss - Orgasm (Mind the rats nest of locks after letting it air-dry)
I've always had a love affair with NARS, and I use the foundations everyday, including the new "Pure Radiant" tinted moisturizer with SPF 30/PA+++ which is great for summer! (It deserves a great review in itself) I don't know why a decade later - it feels... that I've decided to review the Orgasm range, but why not! I love every single thing in the line including Super Orgasm lip gloss - it's like a disco on my lips! ;)

Do any of you own one of NARS' cult classics in any form? What are your favourites?

Blissliving Home: In Honour of The Queen's Jubilee!

In honour of the Queen's Jubilee my Blissliving Home pillows that I got last week are on sale! So - bad for me, but great for you! I am really enjoying the "Trafalgar" bed collection and my Tate Rose quilt! (Both on sale!) Mind the wrinkled pillow cases and duvet (pictured below), I was just so excited, I had to throw them on the bed right away before washing them first.

Blissliving Home has had a proper "lurker" over this bedding for a few months, and I finally had the chance to catch most of the collection on sale. "My heart fluttered with glee!"* (*said in best English accent.)

The duvet cover is so soft, along with the pillows and quilt- they are all such amazing quality! The pillows are worth the full price in my opinion. It's not just a pillow cover, it's the whole down-filled experience with a zippered closure. The materials are all so luxurious and well-made. Get these beautiful pillows or anything else wonderful (because it ALL is!) from Blissliving Home :)

I will always love old quilts with unmatched sheets and things that are so cozy and warm - that will never change. (I get that old country Victorian style from my mother) It's just nice to have a nice matched bed to jump into at the end of the day.

 After all, you sleep 1/3 of your life - so you might as well enjoy it! ;)
