FOTD - Lavender Smokey Eyes ft The Body Shop London Brush Eye Palette and OOTD!

As promised, I am trying to be more consistent with my posting. I have a couple of reviews and new products to share with you guys but that takes a longer time as swatches and proper writing are required as opposed to FOTD/OOTD posts. 

So, it is VERY rare (or maybe even never) that I would post the FOTD/OOTD the next day.  They are usually way backlogged and probably only appears... 4-6 weeks later. #failbeautyblogger. Well, it is an exception this time because I really like my out-of-my-comfortzone (ie neutrals) FOTD and I got to wear maxi dress!

Just in case you guys thought that I spent hours "styling" my hair, this is merely my bad, gross, dirty, unwashed hair prior to putting them up into a bun. I do, however, quite like the effect of it! =)

*Please ignore the disgusting state of my mane and focus on the GORGEOUS Oceanus kthxbye*

Ok, I promise this is my last luvo pic =P 
(I can't help it as I loved the eye colours and the lipstick!)

My absolutely yummy-licious brunch with a girlfriend today. Super love their hash browns - which is kinda like potato strips pancake. <3

Oh haiz, I am headless!

I reckon this is a pretty cool "headless" photo of mine thanks to the backlight effect and my shitty iPhone 3GS camera! What says you?

Have you tried any FOTD outside your comfort zone lately? 
What are your thoughts on the colours of The Bodyshop London Collection Eye Palette in A La Mode?

Have a great week ahead lovelies! 
I know I will be suffering from #MoodyMonday and #MondayBlues for sure!

Hey gorgeous,
I am loving your OOTD - what a great idea. You're so styling!
Loving The Body Shop eyeshadows, I didn't realise they are so pigmented.
