5 Things Friday: hot shoes, new products and a habit for happiness

February 7, 2014

1) New shoes

Don’t you love it when you innocently walk into a mall with no intention to shop but, Surprise! Your favourite store is having a massive clearance sale! It’s like the gods of retail are rewarding your good intentions. I scored these beauties for a mere 95 aed at River Island in Dubai Mall.

2) Make Up, New and Old

I repurchased Bobbi Brown’s Natural Brow Shaper today, it’s been my holy grail brow product for 2 years. I have bushy eye brows and this stuff adds definition and colour, while still looking natural. It also layers on well if you need to fill in those spots you got too tweezer- happy with.

I have a new addition to my blush collection! This isn’t a shade I would normally wear because I’m so used to pinks and corals, but Jane Iredale’s PurePressed Blush in Sheer Honey lives up to its pretty name. I thought the shade wouldn’t suit my skin tone but the colour pay off is awesome and it adds a lovely warmth to my face.  Dark reds and berry lipsticks really stand out with this gorgeous blush, an absolute hit on my list!

3) Healthy Hair

It’s not often that I walk out of a salon after a dye job with healthier hair, I’m convinced it was the Redken Colour Extend Conditioner. The results are instant, my hair is softer and my highlights are still a vibrant. It’s expensive for a conditioner but I only use a coin size amount of product, so I’m hoping this will last longer than my weekly stash of drug store purchases.

4) Animal Lover

My mom got me this adorable animal charm bracelet just a day after I purchased a super cute dog charm bracelet from Forever 21. Seriously, how cute are they? I just need one with cats now.

5) Gratitude Journal

I decided to start a gratitude journal after reading Sarah’s post. Sometimes, the list includes trivial stuff like ” I ate some Nutella” just above something about enjoying a long walk with Leia and the man under the midnight sky. It might sound really simple, but it’s guaranteed to put a smile on my face every night before I go to bed.

I’m going to blog a 5 Things Friday list every week, it’s just a nice chance for me to play with my camera and share stuff I’m loving right now. I really enjoyed creating this post, I hope you like it too!
