What I wore: Sweet Hearts

I've been thinking about doing some more outfit post, especially after finding a few really rad clothing items lately.

Face: Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting concealer, Body Shop Extra Virgin Mineral foundation, touched up with Maybelline Dream Matte powder.
Benefit Hervana blush, touched up with Essence Cherry Blossom Girl blush
Covergirl LineExact Liquid eyeliner, Covergirl LastBlast Volume mascara
Revlon Kissable BalmStain in Romantic

Admittedly, this dress is from my work (Cotton On, $29.95 if anyone is interested). When I first saw it when we were unpacking stock I thought the print was a little tacky, and the shape was horrible, and it was too thin. Then I decided to try it on, just in case, and I was pretty much blown away (shhh, I know you've all had moments when you basically fall in love with an item of clothing!). Turns out on second thoughts, I think the print is super cute, the shape is super flattering on me, and the fabric isn't as thin as it first appeared. I'm also stoked that this dress could easily be layered to be worn in the cooler months.
I have a real interest in anatomy, so I think this necklace is super rad. 

George wanted to play while I was taking pictures.

Lately I've been hanging out with my friends a lot, going out to dinner and ice cream and coffee dates, and it's been super fun. I usually spend a lot of my down time at home doing not much, so it's been a nice change. I've been offered to stay on at work after my Christmas contract runs out, which is awesome! I really like working in a clothing shop (yep... I'm liking working in retail!!), and it's a great change from what I've been doing for the last 5 years working in coffee shops. Hopefully I'll manage to swing enough shifts so I can save enough money for when I head over to the UK at the end of May. I also got my marks back from my final class, so I will be graduating university in March!
