Mini-update on some recent events

Ok well...instead of studying for my work exam on a cold Sunday, I've been VERY distracted with checking out some funky makeup styles and reading a few of your blog posts!

Here's an update of what's been happening over the past few weeks...
Been golfing at a local club (looks like I might be getting better!).

Someone has a guilty look on their face! Caught this sneaky kitty in the lawn near the Putt-putt area.

Leader of the pack! Getting ready to hit!

Mmmm. I lurrrrve the smell of strong filter coffee so when I saw this section dedicated to a variety of strength filter coffee while out shopping, it was like heaven to me! Caffeinated heaven!

Caffeinate Heaven: one sugar please!

Also went to visit a college friend for a BBQ/Braai because it was his birthday the weekend before (couldn't do one then because of crappy weather). It was great to catch up with the college buds.
Decided to doll myself up for the day with brown shade and black liner.

Messy hair! Brown shade look with a bit of wing liner style

Long time no blog

Hi guys!

Sorry for the delays in posting on my blog!

I've got so much to post but haven't had much time or decent Internet access these past few weeks!
Just been all over (staying between two houses and helping my aunt out with cousin's November wedding arrangements) and soon I'll have to start planning for my part as the bridesmaid. Need to buy the accessories, shoes, the dolling up and so forth.

Even more pressure is that I'll have to save up spending money for when my other cousin comes down from UK for a 3 week holiday and I'd like to take off 3 weeks work leave to spend with her so we can go shopping and touring the city (and still end up with money in my account once she returns to UK lol)!

Also been getting pressure from my boss about studying for an exam he requires me to obtain certification in and when he needs it done, he needs it done chop chop!

I haven't been able to catch up on my 50 Shades novel either because of finishing work late!
Sounds like the story gets even more eventful lol.

When I'm more settled after the exam and wedding prep, things will hopefully calm down so that I can finally get onto my E.L.F haul part 2 and Urban Decay reviews in the next few weeks.

I'd like your opinion on brushes...been eyeing the MAC 219 pencil, MAC 217 blending, and MAC 239 shader brushes. As far as I've heard, they're so good but so pricey! What are your recommendations on alternatives? I'm currently using the standard eyeshadow brush from the E.L.F range and it's been okay but I'm looking to experiment with a different brand and type as well so any suggestions are welcome!

Have an awesome day!
