Gratitude: September 2018

September has been a month of online orders, driving practice and the usual singing and reading. I’ve been really loving applying makeup this month, I genuinely always enjoy coming up with looks and combinations and seeing how it turns out each time. My mood has mostly been ok, I had a dip around the middle of the month but I came back strong in the last week or so.

Here’s what made me smile:

September 1: Found a new driving spot.

September 2: Helpful driving tips from a work mate.

September 3: After work treats.

      I feel guilty buying new makeup sometimes but I justify it by acknowledging I wear it everyday I’m at work and it’s something I enjoy and I know my collection is by no means extravagant and over the top with drawers of makeup spilling everywhere, all of my makeup is contained in one drawer and a makeup bag on top of my drawers 🙂

      I’m really enjoying the primer, I’ve almost finished my current one from Makeup Revolution and then I will be using the Too Faced one regularly.

      I think calling pikelets pikelets is a NZ thing. I googled them myself and it says “a think kind of crumpet” but in NZ a crumpet is something else 😂

      I purchased the Blush Queen palette for myself and I will message you on Insta the other palette I got, it’s a surprise for the giveaway! 😉

      Dominos value range pizzas are $5 here which is pretty good, that’s roughly £2.50 – Pizza Hut is similar. I wonder if there’s a no salt option when you order?

    That’s so cool that you found one thing to be grateful for each day, I tried to do that a few weeks back, like lists three things, but I ended up stopping a week or two in lol. This is so lovely though and congrats on reaching 1k last month!
