I need to express my love for Benefit's new 'Cha-Cha Tint'. Boy oh boy...

Here's a list of reason's why you should go and invest in it

1. It appears a scary neon orange colour in the bottle, but put a couple of dots on your cheeks, blend in upwards and outwards, and it transforms into a delicious coral-pink colour.

2. You do only need just that - a couple of dots (well, depending on how dark you like your blusher), so it will last for aaaages.

3. It has a sort of gloopy, slightly-thicker-than-nail-varnish consistency. I had the original Benetint, a more red-coloured tint in the past. It was liquid, thin as water, and clumsy old me knocked it over after only owning it a couple of weeks. It spilled everywhere. Sickened.

4. It looks good on everyone! No really. I spent the day applying it to strangers of all ages and skin types, and I completely stand by that statement.

5. It looks great on lips too! Put a few dots across your lips, pat in with a finger and add a slick of lip gloss for a summery coral smile

6.Ok, it's a bit pricey at €33.50, but did I mention it'll last you ages? And looks good on everyone? I'm definitely purchasing some soon. When I stop being so ridiculously broke that is.

everybody's got to live their life

I've been neglecting this little blog of mine again. I suppose I've been trying to sort out Real Life, though that hasn't really worked out either. I am unemployed once again. The place where I had been working took on their summer staff rather hastily, and then realised they weren't doing as much business as they'd hoped. They left it at a 'we'll call you', but I'm not holding out too much hope.

I'm semi-regretting not applying for further study in September. I assumed getting a job would be a lot easier than this, and that I would be able to work and save, and figure out what it is I want to do long term, and maybe do some work experience relating to that. And travel. I'm only twenty, ugh. And I'm listening to The Smiths right now, is it any wonder I'm sounding so morose.

I'm just back from a four day holiday to Germany, which was something. I wouldn't have been able to go had we not booked the flights ages ago, and had the accommodation not been free. I gave up the job hunt for a while, and just up and went. Exploring and eating and drinking and staying out til 6am, plus a day trip to
Luxembourg city.. I'll post a couple of photos soon. I might have spent every cent I own, but I don't regret it. There's talks of going interrailing next summer, and I can't wait.

For now it's back to job hunting, possibly signing on, and figuring out what the hell I'm going to do come September. Aye aye aye.

I've just made a smoothie, however, and it's delicious. I've never made a proper-from-scratch one before. Mmmm. . .
