A pair of eyes in the tumble dryer. Good job @hironsjim had his glasses on.

I'm in LA next week. What products/stores do I need to buy/check out for the blog (if I have time)? I'm also finally going to be in the same place as @sf_stef which means everyone should probably leave town. πŸ˜¬πŸ‘πŸΌβ€οΈ

Caroline Hirons (@carolinehirons)

Yes. Do. Bought myself and Mum two of these each. Anyone uses them for coffee and they're dead. Coffee is filth. Tea is awesome. On that very mature statement I bid you all a good night. Mugs from @teapigs - which is apt, as I am indeed a tea pig. β˜•οΈ

So Miss Ava came to my office after school yesterday. Yeah. I won't be making that mistake again. I opened this to photograph it, turned around and she had pocketed the lot. I said 'OI!' and she says all casually: 'I've left you the lipstick.' Thanks for the lipstick @katvondbeauty πŸ˜‘

So at the end of the month we enter the Year of the Rooster in Chinese New Year. This brings me great joy because yes, I am a cock.
If any of you see any interesting, exciting cock things please do give me a head's up. Would be most obliged. Meanwhile, speaking of palettes I won't use, here's the @__giorgioarmanibeauty Chinese New Year Highlighting Palette. It's beautiful, it's extremely limited, and I won't be touching it. *hides from Ava, stashes away* Β£60 available now.

Here's the massive problem with a lot of Limited Edition makeup palettes. They're so beautiful that you KNOW you're not actually not going to use them, and that you're just adding them to your collection. Does that put you off? Nope. Don't be silly. Me neither. This @yslbeauty The Street and I Palette is no exception. Just don't ask me to swatch it, because I'm not touching it. It's too pretty. Jane has swatches over on @britbeautyblog though, because she's good like that. πŸ’—

Not travelling far today but apologising to my skin for my retinol usage. @zelensskincare Treatment Drops in D, followed by Chanel Hydra Beauty Nutrition. The skincare equivalent of lying on the sofa wth a hot water bottle under a cashmere blanket. πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

What a match made in heaven. A new box of @crayola was my favourite thing about the new school year when I lived in the States. Hence when @cliniqueuk send you some along with their new Chubby Lip Crayons you dance around like a small child and put them away to 'keep them safe'. Then forget where you've put them, because πŸ‘΅πŸΌ.
Β£18.00. Out now.

Flowerbomb fans: newness ahoy. Bloom is fresher, lighter and nowhere near as heady as the original. Coming next month. Lush. πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

When you're mopping the kitchen floor and the cats make themselves comfortable on the underside of the furniture. Because God Forbid they use their houses/perches/poles.
Also: they're not Instagram filter-friendly. Monty is so dark that I have to lighten it to even make out his shape. My God I am literally a crazy old cat lady. Again. 😸

Today's face.
The second part of my Double Cleanse is an homage to my beloved discontinued @clarinsuk so now that I've made my own I'm happily using my backup stash.
@indie_lee COQ-10 Toner which you can tell I hate by how much I've used it.
@leahlaniskincare Regenerating Toner which is heavenly.
@chanelofficial Hydra Beauty Eye as it's light and does the job.
@zelensskincare Power D because it's freezing outside and I need the protection and comfort.
@katesomervilleskincare Goat Milk as my coat and this is nearly empty so I'll be stocking up next week. *already checked baggage allowance*

Highly recommend for those 'can't quite get my arse out of bed' mornings. @redhotchilipeppers on repeat. Also: this can only mean one thing. Brace yourselves LA. β¬…οΈβœˆοΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

OMG literally never been asked more about a top ever. Not even my wedding dress had this many questions. It's from @ASOS. THERE.

Knackered. Tons of makeup to take off as @amandabellmakeup had to completely cover my skin which had not taken well to me being ill last week. Fake it til you make it. And obviously I'm not going to get home and NOT use my cleanser after all that so Double Cleanse (see what I did there) followed by @neostratauk Retinol as I have to fix this face stat for LA next week! @chanelofficial Hydra Eye as my eyes are still so puffy from last week and this is light but hydrating and @zelensskincare Vitamin D Treatment Drops because if ever a skin needed fortifying it's this one and this is brilliant after retinols.
All one sentence. All in one swift movement. Why worry about things like grammar when you're in bed drinking tea at midnight.
