ICYMI: Top Reads this Week

Happy Sunday, folks!

My favourite way to start each day is to grab my cup of tea and some cookies, and read through all kind of weird and wonderful news (I love tabloids, ssshh!). This week, I thought I would compile my favourite reads and share them with you for some inspiration. I will try to stick to the beauty/makeup theme, but I might throw in some other bits as well.

23 Of The Most Powerful Photos Of The Week (here)

5 Different Makeup Counters tried and tested (here)
We have all been there, done that. You go to a makeup counter and get even more confused because of what they recommend/try on your face. Also, you can never replicate it at home. Watch what happens when this girl visits Sephora, Bobbi Brown, Mac, Benefit and NARS counters to find out the best ‘evening’ look for her.

The Powerful Effect of Noticing Good Things at Work (here)
The corporate geek in me just had to come out. But hey! If this can work in a corporate environment, why can’t we try this in our daily lives? Savouring the positives from the day are known to reduce stress levels and it was reported that mental and physical complaints declined by “small but significant amounts”. I have noticed this in my personal and professional life as well, where just a phone call from a friend or a single message can leave me smiling for the rest of the day. SEPT15_04_83762750
