Star Trek-ing & shoe shopping

Friday, July 29, 2016

Hey, it's been... uh, a week. Already can't wait for kids to go back to school because yesterday was a nightmare at work and today I went to Meadowhall and got swamped by a sea of children and pushchairs. I may just hibernate in my room throughout August.

Anyway, I have been up to a couple of fun things since my last blog post. I went to see Star Trek Beyond on Sunday which was awesome. Beats Into Darkness for me personally. Into Darkness was fun when I first saw at the cinema then I couldn't stop thinking about why they thought it was a good idea to cast Benedict Cumberbatch as Khan and I eventually made myself so mad I couldn't bear to watch it again. Such bad casting... anyway... Beyond is brilliant, it feels like the first one again in terms of tone. It's fun and light and action-y and they bring Sabotage by the Beastie Boys back in the best way possible and it's just... yeah, very good.

My work week was OK, it's picked up a lot because of the summer holidays and it's occasionally been a bit overwhelming but I always manage to get through it (somehow). I was grateful for the day off today to ~recuperate, but then I decided to go shopping... and that was equally as chaotic... but a good kind of chaotic since, y'know, I'm shopping and not working. 🛍

I picked up some new work shoes (Sketchers, 10% student discount in Schuh, thanks NUS card even though I'm not actually a student anymore, shh) because my old Sketchers had died a death (there were holes where my big toes sit, MY TOES HAD WORN HOLES IN MY SHOES?) so new shoes were number 1 on the list. I then picked up some NYX Lip Lingerie lipstick in Exotic, a tube of Lee Stafford Coco Loco Blow and Go lotion, a Makeup Revolution Ultra Sculpt makeup brush, some new tweezers (boring but necessary), and more of my favourite bras ever. They're a sensible bra and don't come in the most adventurous of colours, but in terms of fit, comfort and practicality, they're pretty boss.

P.S. The picture in this post was taken yesterday as the sun was setting - all I've done is lift the saturation a teeny notch. It was legit golden in my room for about 30 seconds. I'm so glad I captured it.

Hope you've all had a fun week. The weather's gone back to Typical English Summer now - miserable rain and unbearable humidity - but I hope you've had a good 'un nonetheless.
