Weekly Round-Up: #1.14

What a week! I’ve had a busy week sorting out my study ready for my return to uni on Monday. This week also marked the end of my job and I had a lovely leaving lunch with some colleagues on Friday. 

Tomorrow I start the next chapter and return to being a full-time postgraduate research student studying for my MRes (Masters in Social Sciences Research). I am really looking forward to immersing myself into the world of academia but that does mean that I may not have time to blog as much. So I do hope to stay with my current schedule of Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday but this may have to change, we shall see.

Beauty: Kat Von D Make-Up

So… The main theme of my week has evolved around everything Kat Von D Beauty. I can’t believe I have waited so long to try make-up from this brand!

Kat Von D – Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks: Vampira, Bauhau5, Bow N Arrow

My generous boyfriend decided to treat me to an early birthday present and he paid for my Kat Von D splurge – Thanks Dave.

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick: Mercy

I have absolutely fallen in love with the lip products from the range; both the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks and the Studded Kiss Lipsticks.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick : L-R Bow N Arrow, Bauhau5, Vampira

I especially love the bright, vibrant pink with a blue undertone called Bauhau5.

It is just the perfect pink for me and I think it’s a great shade to see me through the transition from summer to Autumn.

I have also clearly been loving selfies this week! If your interested in my full Kat Von D Haul then click the link. 

Food: Brownie & Icecream

As you may know my sensitivities to food can be quite extreme. However since my diagnosis and learning more about fibromyalgia I have realised that my IBS symptoms and food sensitivities are much more acute when I am not feeling great in myself and experiencing a flare up.

Luckily this week I have been feeling ok fibro-wise so decided to treat myself to this delicious brownie with vanilla Icecream and chocolate sauce. It was so so good and I didn’t experience any nasty consequences! Perfect.

Yesterday, after spending most of the day sorting through piles of paperwork with Dave I decided that I needed a creative outlet so I started work on a new piece of art. It’s still not finished but it’s taking space nicely. If your interested in looking, buying or commissioning a piece of art by me then check out my art website: Art By ELS. 

I hope you have enjoyed my Weekly Round-Up. Thanks for reading. Do let me know how your week has been – have you tried anything from the Kat Von D range? I love reading and replying to your comments.

  1. Looking absolutely gorgeous Ms Em 🙂 Love those stunning shades of lippy!!! Wishing you every success in your new adventure at uni, sounds like you cannot wait to become a student again! Funnily I enrolled yesterday for a course starting in January. It’s a C&G nail course which I feel I really need and would like to do but thankfully it’s only one evening a week running until June – so it’s perfect for me at the moment. Very exciting though and gives me something to look forward to come the new year! Great catch up as always huni 🙂 XXXXX
