Satchi's satchi stuff

Attitude cosmetics :-)

Today I feel like writing about other good (and cheap) stuff I've been using!
I've tried the Attitude tea tree concealer and the make-up setting spray.
They can be found at Savers. Attitude also has a fragrance stick (perfume/toilette spray I think!) and lip gloss etc. but I've not tried these other products. The reason is because everytime I see them on display, there are only a few sticks left--and the lip gloss somehow does not look appealing to me--packaging, maybe?

Anyway---

ATTITUDE tea tree concealer 3 STARS

PROS: It comes in a small lipstick-like stick and fits in my ittle make-up bag (which sits in my handbag)--it is very good for quick touch-ups, areas around the nose etc. on a day's outing etc. ...

Aldi cosmetics for budget seekers :-)

Today I feel like writing about cosmetics! Here's a mini review of beauty products by Aldi :-)
I like Aldi's products because they are affordable and most of the time, they do what they say they do :-) Their brand is called LACURA.

And no, I'm not working for Aldi, I still don't have a job :-)

Lacura Lip Gloss -- 4 STARS
PROS: Very moisturising, glides on easily on the lips, and stays on!!! No flaking, and no dryness on my lips even after 2-3 hours post-application.
CONS: Limited range of colour---my favourite is Cherry. Again it depends on where you shop. Some Aldi stores have more stock.

Lacura Lip Stick -- 3.5 STARS

I watched a lovely youtube video about a young lady's life which I found really sweet and touching. Maybe you've already seen it! After that I also looked at her make-up videos. I was so amazed at how creative she was. I might just try her tip of curling eye lashes with a spoon. I've always wanted to write my own reviews of cosmetics--but I'm nowhere close to all the wonderful make up gurus on youtube!

Never mind.

I also found out today--that I have hooded eyes--that go downwards?!!

Today I stepped out of the house in four weeks since moving! I walked past the bluebells and daffodils, watched a BT van go by, waved at an old lady passing by. I walked to the pharmacy and bought a pink Vaseline lippy. I couldn't resist it £1.20 instead of the using £1.99 :-)

I also read the responses from my thread about job rejections. Many people are affected as well. I feel comforted that I am not "the problem". The problem is not me. I have no problem--just no job, no income of my own--and I am not able to save any money (because there is simply none to save!) that is just the state that I am in at the moment.

Oh well.

:-)

Now I'm back home. Thesis revision again.

I've read somewhere in one of those "how to finish your thesis" help pages that we need to write something everyday to keep things going. I guess writing something everyday also helps us to concentrate and focus. For me, that is.

Since I started posting on the blog, I have done some work on thesis revisions. Thankfully.

For today I'll write about whatever's popped into my mind now--FLOWERS!

I have five yellow tulips and 4 strands of bluebands in my glass vase on my desk.
They seem to be smiling at me. Good.

I have another 5 strands of bluebells in a glass bottle on my mantelpiece. They seem to be in their own world, and totally ignore me. Oh well.

Starting all over

Today I realise that, just like many other people, I have phd-related anxiety, depression and stress. Life has also got in the way (moving house etc.) which can't be helped, I guess. Life is Life! My phd-related stuff is mainly those never-ending revisions, me having to do them (yes I know I must do them to complete the phd), and especially, me doing everything else but my thesis revisions!!!

Everything else is housework, watching TV, going online to look at clothes, make up and a lot of things I don't really need.

Nevertheless I have been fortunate in many ways. My boyfriend supports me financially so I don't have any money worries at the moment. However, today I realise that I have been feeding my anxiety and stress in many ways --e.g. ...

Feeling demotivated and demoralised, which is unusual for me because I'm always cheery and upbeat! I felt like speaking to somebody, anybody--so I typed in "chat" on google and simply clicked on one with "clean chat".

When I entered a chat room (the Lobby) unfortunately I didn't know what people were talking about. Then I had a PM from someone wanting to know my asl--then I realised this person wanted to initiate sex chat, or perhaps this was a con artist sitting in some hot cubical in somewhere in Africa. So I closed the chat window. So much for wanting to speak to somebody, anybody.

I'm very glad this blog is here. I will be able to express myself. It is also my First Blog Post!

Oh my. I feel better already. ...
