Recently 06.03.2013

A LOT has been going on lately. Kind of felt like I was drowning there for a bit, but that seems to have passed. 

I'll try and catch up in pics. 

I gave blood the other day. Of all the times I've given blood, this was the worst. The nurse was, let's say, not gentle, and it took a couple of goes to get it right. Yikes. 
I Bassike saled it up. I went on the Friday before work and it was manic. I got so much good loot Mr C wanted in and we went back on the Saturday, when it was deserted. Definitely worth going to and breaking my sale ban for. 

Marcel helped me check out my buys. 

I got my metal hardcore on and went to Soundwave. Blink 182 were a massive highlight and worth all the stuffing around for. I was in pain for days. I am not 18 any more. 
Here I am with a handwritten timetable all the way from London (a tradition that lives on despite the artiste not being with us). I was dying from humidity about then. 
Mike Patton got a bit chubs. I still love him and would totally go there, but when did this happen?

Mr C took us to a surfboard swap meet at Deus Ex Machina in Annandale. I went for the burgers. Here I am with The Beast being cool. 
And here he is totally out cooling me with surfing legend Bob McTavish. Mr C is a massive fan and we kind of used the kid to get a photo. Not ashamed. He was adorable and so lovely. Plus he liked my photo on instagram.  
 Mr C checking out some old boards. Ie, being in heaven.

Beauty: February empties

At this rate, it's going to take me 4933 years to get through my beauty stash. Slowly but surely I'll do it, and at least it's fun, right?

Here's what I finished up in Feb. 
Clinique Even Better Skin Tone Corrector
Around my cheeks I have sunspots, especially on my right side where my sunnies stop, from driving around a lot for my old job. This is despite wearing suncream every day. I used this for about 8 weeks, as long as it takes to start working, and about as long as the tube lasts. The packaging is a bit frustrating, it felt like there was a lot left to scrape out when the pump stopped working. 
I definitely saw a difference towards the end, so would probably buy it again. I have a John Plunkett fade cream to use first though. 

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen Lotion
This is EXTREMELY thick. Even though it feels like it sinks in OK, it is a bit of a pain to put on. I used it more on weekends because it felt too thick for wearing under makeup at work. Wouldn't buy again. 

Garnier BB Cream
Love this! Perfect coverage for the weekend, I also wore it to work sometimes when I was having a 'good' skin day. It has quite a weird scent but I kinda liked it. Not sure about any of the other claims, but I would buy it again.  

Select moisturising Nail Polish remover
Just a nail polish remover, no different to any other really.

Biore Clean Things Up cleanser
This seemed to last forever which was annoying because I noticed no difference to my skin at all. I wouldn't buy again as I'm trying to switch to gentler skin care. 

Pantene Daily Moisture renewal shampoo
I know hairdressers are supposed to hate this, blah blah, but I love Pantene and use it every few bottles. I like to switch it up each time I empty a S&C because I do believe your hair gets used to products.
