One Week and One Day...

That’s right, only one week and one day till The BF comes back! Yay! That’s 8 days for those of you playing at home *wink

I apologise for my lack of blog posts… I have actually been doing *shudders* work at work lately (what a crock!) and by the time I get home I am not interested in even looking at a computer screen. Though I happily browse blogs on my iPhone, I wouldn’t dare type a post on there.

As I mentioned in my last post, I sent the BF a little list of products to get me from Sephora in Poland… But as it turns out, they hardly stocked any of them! I only got Benefit They’re Real Mascara. Apparently it’s a full size tube and a little travel one too. Cute! No Naked palette for me. I’ll have to buy it online! Oh the horror!

The BF is leaving Poland now (like right now) and going to Amsterdam for a few days… then he flies to Korea, where the time difference is a lot more palatable. While he was in Poland we were pretty much completely opposite. He would stay up late (like 1am) to say good morning to me, and I would be saying good morning to him as I was traveling home from work.

We hit some relationship turbulence while he was away. For some unknown reason I started talking about how I wanted a baby. Yes. A baby. And then he started getting a bit funny and, let’s face it, freaked out. I have brought up children before though. I didn’t (and don’t) want to be in a relationship where we had different goals in life. I want a family (big time) and I ain’t getting any younger. And back then, he said he wanted that too.

It doesn’t sound as though he has changed his mind entirely, but he has been ‘between jobs’ for a really long time. A real victim of unemployment, if you will. He has had some contracting work, but he doesn’t want just any job, he wants a job in the field that he studied in. I don’t really get that (higher education drop-out over here) and thought he should just get a job. Any job. Stacking shelves at Coles New World. Something. Anything. So, that’s contributing to him not being ready for a family, which is fair enough.

But then… Oh yes, but then… He tells me he applied for a job in Poland. “Just to see what would happen.” Like what Lily from How I met Your Mother did applying for the art school in another state just to see if they would accept her). He got an interview, which he didn’t go to, but he said how in Melbourne, it’s like 20 applications with only 1 interview… and in Poland he was asked for an interview on his one and only job application. So, then he started saying he wanted to move to Poland. Move there. What the?! He said the only thing he has to look forward to in Melbourne is me. Which is sweet, but eeeeeek.

Then he started feeling really down and saying that he felt like he had been wasting my time and that I’d probably be married with babies by now if it wasn’t for him. I didn’t really know what to say. After reassuring him (etc) I was feeling pretty worried about it all. His response? I’ll be back soon. What does that even mean?! He later said he was having a bad day, feeling bad about not having a job and then me asking about marriage and babies. Yep, I asked about marriage too.

I don’t want him to move to Poland. I don’t think I could leave Melbourne.

I didn't really mean to get into all of this in this post. I was actually just thinking yay 8 days to go. But 8 days to go till what? Am I in limbo?! I don’t actually think so, but really, I can’t wait around forever. I have PCOS and I am already scared about my baby making capabilities… so I want to try as soon as I can, that way I’ll know as early as poss if I need help.♡Missy

Distance makes the heart grow fonder...

 ... Does it, does it really?

The BF has been away for 23 days, but who's counting? Um... me.


I have been in communicato with him daily (aside from when he was flying), so I haven't been suffering too badly. But there is still 26 days to go. 26 days. I'm not even halfway.

Interestingly enough, he mentioned he walked past my 'favourite' shop... and sent me a photo. Sephora! Ooh La La.

He said he'd get me whatever I needed from there.

BIG mistake Mister. 

Next thing he knew, I was sending a list accompanied by photos, so there was no room for any errors! hahaha. Nah, I was pretty refrained  but I think I need to rethink the list. I felt under pressure and wanted to get some prods out there before he said 'okay, enough!'

Number one was the Urban Decay NAKED palette. I am a lover of nudes... So, I pretty much need this palette.

Then I also added the NARS Foreplay Blush set which has a couple of blushes.. Like a little taste tester. I have never had a Nars blush and the couple of times I've watched Orgasm I was a bit taken aback by the shimmer. But I kinda still want it... Y'know?

The set includes -Peach Matte Blush -Gold Highlighting Blush-Pink Matte Blush-Orgasm Blush (peachy pink with golden shimmer)

I also want/need/gotta have Benefit 'They're Real' Mascara... But then I was thinking, it's only $38 here- which is exxy but is it worth whatever the saving will be to have him cart if across the world for me? I just checked and it's $23 on the US store, so I don't know if I should get him to get that. It's not really worth it. Not to mention I have mascaras lining up waiting to be used... Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes, you're next!

I also added the Ciate Caviar nails... but again I'm thinking it's unnecessary. Especially considering I just noticed (like literally today) that the Aussie brand Hello Darling has those caviar fish egg polishes too... Only, they call them Rock Candy! The one I have my eye on is called "Le Petit Choupette" and it is inspired by Karl Lagerfeld's precious kitty Choupette... It has a mixture of Pink and Gold. LOVE!

And the real Choupette for added adorableness.

She's sooooo pampered! And Cute! And she looks worldly.

Any advice on what I should get from Sephora??

The BF's in Poland by the way... So I don't even know how good the savings are or anything. I'm soooo unworldly, unlike Choupette.

Sorry for my absence... Turns out being 30 is more tiring than I anticipated. ha. Nah, just lazzzzy. Maybe that comes with old age?!

I have a tonne to catch up on the old blog... Including the second part of my eyelash extension disaster story experience... and the fact that I have found my new favourite foundation...

It feels sooooo luxurious!! It's also a pretty decent price (I paid under $30) and the product itself (and the packaging) feels more expensive. You only use a smidge to cover your whole face and *bonus* after an embarrassingly long length of time spent testing them on my hand, I actually found my perfect colour match!!

I have been spending exorbitant amounts of money on things I do not need... I keep saying to myself 'that's it young old lady, you're on a spending ban' next thing I know my arms a laden with bags of stuff! Gahhh.

I also packed on the pounds (and was in denial about it too)... So I am 'clean eating' again. Me and sugar do not mix well.
