#IMWAYR

I started writing this post last week and then the week just took over. As many of you know I am a nurse and I work shifts so things can be a little hectic when it comes to having time to sit down and schedule posts.

This weeks post will be a little different as I will be including bits about what has been happening with me and not just the books I have read etc! I have done this before and really enjoyed writing the posts. Well, here goes!

LIFE

As I mentioned above I have been on night shifts but recently work has been full on as my shifts are a bit all over the place. A couple of months ago I started writing the staff newsletter and really enjoy doing so, this has now become a monthly thing.

Despite being nagged by everyone and their dog to get the flu jab this year I am yet to do it. This week I got a very bad cold – I don’t think it was flu but it was bad enough to make me want to go and get the jab as feeling like this is one thing and from experience flu is even worse!

Christmas shopping – yes I said it! Although some may deem it too early I just see it as being organised slightly as I am sure there will be something that I will leave to the last-minute. The shops are already being ransacked for presents that will be presented to our nearest and dearest. Have you started yet?

I have not been to the gym in over 3 weeks and I feel very bad for this. Bad enough to scoff a delicious mince-pie with my coffee – I will get around to going back but I think I should ease myself into it! Some light swimming perhaps!

BEAUTY

Over the past couple of weeks my make up collection has grown significantly. Especially in the NARS department. Their seasonal colours are truly amazing and I can think of no better reason to get glammed up even for a night sipping red wine at your local bar/pub or just a simple shopping trip with a vamped up look.

I have already written a post about one of the colours from the Audacious lipstick range but will be posting the rest of my lovely collection over the next couple of weeks. Today however I wanted to share with you a favourite that seems to be used on a daily basis and may be in need of a refill sooner rather than later!

NARS, Cosmetics, Lip, Lips, Lip Pencil, Velvet Matte, Bahama

Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Bahama – £18

This pencil is an absolute beauty and something that if available I will be making several buys. The colour is incredibly neutral and as it is matte stays on for such a long time that reapplication is few and far between. At £18 it’s not cheap but totally worth it if within your budget.

Events

Over the past couple of months I have attended a few events and as this is party season the calendar is filling up pretty fast – not only with work but social and bloggy events. Tonight I will be attending a decadent sleepover in honour of the release of Sylvia Day’s new book. Champagne and Chocolates here I come!
