Homemade Nutella and Peanut Butter Pop Tarts

I made PopTarts! And ate four in one day, yes four,  and no it is not ok. I had made these to keep me in Pop Tart supply for a week during some last semester blues but they quickly disappeared.. so it's back in the gym for me next week! Anyway I'm not even going to spell out a recipe for these because they were insanely easy. In fact i'll do it in steps.

Step 1. Buy ready made short crust pastry mix and knead into a dough with water
Step 2. Roll out and cut into an even number of rectangles
Step 3. Put a blob of your favourite filling on half the rectangles, then use the other half as lids
Step 4. Glaze with egg and milk and put in the oven until brown
Step 5. Eat shamelessly until any notion of work evaporates

Ta Dah!

Guilt Free Bubble Wrap

Measuring the childlike nature of adults. Using audience participation to create a final aesthetic based on the idea of compulsion. The urge to pop and play with bubblewrap prevails even through age, and ignites a childlike response to a mundane material.

Coveting... Red Wine and Rose Gold.

So if you know me, you will know that I have a very specific colour palette of clothes. This consists of, nudes, burgundy, navy, lilac, grey. Literally anything I 'ooh' at in a shop will probably be one of these colors.

I also end up with the same kind of clothes in different color variations. That polka dot playsuit for example, I pretty much already own an extremely similar Topshop one from last year in navy. It might not sound very exciting but least I know what I like!

Anyway another thing that you would know is that I become obsessed with wanting things. Like obsessed, if I can't afford something (which is usually the case) I will just think about it and think about it, until I either cave or it passes. That's how I feel about the Michael Kors Rose Gold watch at the moment. But with my current bank balance I might just have to wait it out. Oh dear.

So this is what I'm coveting at the right now..

My week in Instagram.

So as of late I have been very busy, what with a fundraiser to put on, two interviews for an art PGCE and a boyfriend coming home, alongside trying to create work for my degree show.

I'm nearing the end of my third and final year at Uni. And I've never been more terrified.

So. I best give you a very quick run down about what is going on here..

NARS Tinted Moisturizer and Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

Apologies for not blogging for the longest time! A few things have been taking over my life at the moment. Namely trying to make artwork as well as put on a fundraiser towards my degree show. And seeing my long lost boyfriend who is finally home from France! So I haven't really had time to share my new make up purchase, so here it goes.

I have been desperately attempting to sort my skin out and decided the best way to do this was to lay off the heavy foundation and try out a tinted moisturizer. After a bit of research and a make over at their counter I went for NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Finland (because you know I have to go for the palest shade to go with my friendly ghost complexion). The coverage is actually pretty good for a tinted moisturizer though it does leave me a little too dewy so I tend to lightly brush a little powder over the top. It's actually not as pale as it could be considering it's the lightest shade, I actually have a slight tan (hahaha) at the moment and it matches pretty much perfectly. The girl on the counter actually said I have olive undertones which I thought was hilarious considering my paleosity, but she's probably right, I tend to tan really well when I do and rarely burn.

While I was there I also picked up the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Bolero. Not going to lie I fell in love with the colour and even though the consistency is way to dry for me currently (thanks cold weather) and I had been warned about how much it picks up on dry skin, my stubborn nature prevailed and I bought it on the premise that I would take better care of my lips from now on! I do love matte lipsticks and the colour is really pretty but I've worn it once successfully without looking like I have lip dandruff. Nice. Anyone else tried the Velvet Lip Pencils yet?
