We were going into the west end of town on Sunday and I was wearing my glasses (which I hate wearing) because my eyes were kind of tired so I gave myself big bronze smokey eyes to look better with my specs on.
♥ I used a matt black super soft eye crayon by Barry M over the lid (and under my eye) and smudged it with my fingers, then used Mac matte eyeshadow in 'carbon' over that.
♥ Then I used a metallic bronze around the black and curved it up to the outside of the eye, blending it into the black with a big blending brush and softening out the edges.
♥ I finished it with a little wing of black liquid eyeliner.
Anyway, once I'd got my face on, we left for town. We went to the scifi bookstore and then planned to go to our favourite tea house, but it turned out that there was a gala on. That ruined our plans a bit since the tea house had live entertainment on outside for the gala and, well, we're a pair of miserable old gits so we ran off.
Managed to find a new place for coffee though. The Buttercup Dairy Co. at Felix and Oscar. There's something really lovely about having a coffee in the middle of a gift shop. I don't get to do that very often.
A wee sketch I did while we were sitting. The jars at the top are the types of chocolate you can choose in your drink. They're all by Temper Chocolates. Tim had a dark chilli mocha. I had a try and you could really taste the bitterness of the dark chocolate, not to mention the chilli aftertaste. We we already converts to chilli hot chocolate anyway, but I kind of wonder what the lavender chocolate tastes like...
A little tutu (pettiskirt?) I saw in the shop. I may just have to go back and order six of them for the little flower girls we'll be having at our wedding. It's adorable. I'm not sure about the pink though. I know little girls love pink (and so do I... sort of), but it doesn't really go with the gothic colour scheme we've been thinking of for the flowers etc... Oh well, lots to think about!
And just to share before I forget: my aunty brought back this beautiful jewellery set from America for me. The ring's a little big although I think I can fix that,, but the earrings are so gorgeous they make me want to get my right ear pierced so I can wear them both at the same time. I've still only got holes in my left ear and I have to admit some earrings look better in pairs.
