The Week in Instagram @ViviannaMakeup: I got ‘wrapped // My current reading list // Pad Thai and cocktails with Lily and Jen, a lovely combination // A Ryan Gosling colouring book? A completely necessary purchase // A evening being converted by Kiehl’s // Swooning at the ready with AERIN’s Spring 2013 Style Collection // A peek into last weekend – wigs and karaoke // The Apocalips have arrived, review coming this week // A new level of matchy-matchy with my oyster card holder and nails, Essie’s Absolutely Shore if you were wondering

Product Pick of the Week: This Works Deep Sleep Stress Less – this snooze-friendly, calming oil-filled rollerball has fast turned into my bedside staple. I’m currently rollering out my second load of the stuff for a multitude of purposes – tune in tomorrow for a Deep Sleep filled Weekend Post.

Blog Post of the Week: A great read for seasoned bloggers who need a well needed inspiration kick in the rear end or newbies alike, Makeup Savvy’s ’13 Ways To Blog Better in 2013′ is worth a glance.

Must-Watch of the Week: It has to be Meg’s ‘Affordable Skincare’ video without a doubt. Well researched, fab recommendations and it’ll end well for your bank balance. And that rarely happens.

Added to the Wishlist: In the pursuit of a laid-back, not-too-messed-up-but-messy hair style I’ve been toying with the newly released Bumble & Bumble Semisumo in my basket. Due to its polishing, texturising and holding credentials I think I’ll take the plunge.

    Going to have to make a “shopping list” of whatever you mention in your deep sleep filled post. Insomnia is not a useful thing. :p

      Aw you poor thing – just popped up a post, hope it helps :)

    I need to order Absolutely Shore, it’s actually everything I wanted mint candy apple to be. Don’t get me wrong, I love that shade but I need something more muted. This seems perfect! And a Ryan Gosling  colouring book, where can I buy it?! ;)

    Lovely post! Thank you Anna!  I  love that you are more skincare
    oriented & I really enjoy watching your videos too, friendly and
    informational. If you also think it’s a good idea, I’d love to see a
    post about “5 misconceptions about skincare”, hope you will make one,
    thanks again!

    • http://www.viviannadoesmakeup.com/ Anna

      Ah thank you hun! That’s a great idea, I’ll see if I can get my thinking cap on and put together a post for that :)

      It’s so pretty! A pain in the wotsit to apply, but so worth it :)

    Great post, I really want to try the rimmel apacalise!  Hope it hits stores soon?

  • Chloe Witty

    i’m really looking foward to rimmel’s apocolalips (sounds like some form of beauty end of the world and i’m okay with this)
