vainglorious drunken debortuary

one cold lonely night on the booze can usually result to narcissistic photos as demonstrated

Karnivool tomorrow night! Last time I saw them I was a skinny boozed up 17 year old in an AC/DC shirt on NYE 2004. Not really one of my finest hours...

self loathing + YSL love

Had a mind numbingly shitty day at work today. It was one of those days that makes you question everything you thought you were or could be. Still feeling the after effects. Gahh :(

In better news yesterday I finally purchased the YSL products I've been lusting over for like.. ever-

YSL Rough Pur Lipstick in 'Rose Bergamasque'

YSL Touche Eclat

Its really true what they say about the touche eclat. I had to look at my reflexion twice after applying it. The green in my eyes seem to pop and good buy dark circles! Too good to be true. I can defiantly see what the hype was about.

The lipstick is also wonderful. The texture is so creamy without that horrible sticky sensation that I seem to find with alot of "moisturising" lipsticks. Its my first YSL lipstick purchase and it certainly wont be my last. Originally I was aiming towards finding an orange toned lippie that suited my skin tone, but something pushed me towards the nude lipsticks. Defiantly a shade that I can wear all day everyday.
What's your favorite YSL product? And if not YSL, what's your favorite beauty product of all time?

Amanda Fucking Palmer

I want to be just like this incredible woman when I grow up
I listen to this song at least 3 times a day. I think you should too

big changes + rose gold love

Hi all. I know its been a disgraceful long time since i last contributed to my blog but I actually have a somewhat good reason for my absence. Recently I scored a position at Prouds the Jewellers as a new 3IC. Its been an interesting few weeks. There's a lot more to working with jewellery than I thought. But for once in my life I can actually say that I've found a job (that isn't a volunteer position) that actually feels like my calling. Working at Prouds so far has been really rewarding. I can defiantly see myself working in the jewellery industry for a very long time.

Working at Prouds has opened up a new passion to me. I'm starting to understand jewellery a lot better than I used to and can really see the differences between quality and poorly made. I've also discovered my love for rose gold jewellery-

Rose gold is really an acquired taste. Sometimes rose gold can appear brassy, but i find that some rose gold pieces can be really lovely and is a nice feminine alternative to other golds (yellow and white). I'm thinking about investing in a rose gold belcher chain bracelet. Its a tad more pricey than regular gold, which doesn't help my goal in saving for America in February.

I also really love this rose gold bracelet by Juicy Couture and is really considering to purchase it. I'm pretty sure it isn't real gold and is only rose gold plated, but I still think its lovely none the less.

What's your opinion on rose gold? Am I the only one who sees its appeal?
