On a typical Sunday I will wake up, get out of bed an hour later, have bacon butties, put a onesie on and stay in bed with my laptop watching films all day. And that is my favourite kind of Sunday.
Yesterday, I did do that but I felt really rubbish all day and started on a self-loathing trip which is never fun. So today I decided that even though I was going nowhere, I would put some nice makeup and clothes on even though I'm just sitting in the house watching Game of Thrones.

Blouse; Dorothy Perkins | Skirt; Miss Selfridge | Cardigan; ASOS | Shoes; Primark | Vest top (worn underneath); Dorothy Perkins

I'm pretty much in love with this skirt right now. It's really difficult trying not to grab this everytime I go to get dress in the morning. I also dug out this blouse this morning. I got it from Dorothy Perkins last summer and I really don't give it enough love. The flowers on it remind me of a dress I had about 15 years ago that I was in love with.
I've had this cardigan a couple of months now but I've basically lived in it since I got it. It's from ASOS and it's so comfy. It kind of has the varsity feel to it with black outline down the front. It seemed silly buying it with summer coming up but of course England being England, we don't seem to be getting any nice weather.
The shoes are from Primark and they were £3 in the sale. My Primark had a tonne of them so hopefully everywhere is the same because I really like them. I didn't own any black everyday shoes which seemed silly and I stopped buying Primark shoes a while ago because they just fell to pieces but these feel a bit better quality than they have been previously. Although, after a 9 hour day at work in them, my feet are quite achy..!

ELF Healthy Glow Bronzer 'Matte Bronze'
ELF Matte Lip Color 'Coral'

I was really keen to use my new ELF products today, as you can probably tell. The lip colour is definitely more nude than coral but I quite like it. It's a bit too nude I think so I may have to mix it with a pink or something.
The blush is nice. I haven't really decided yet. I accidentally put too much on the blush and had to blend like crazy.
The bronzer doesn't seem to pick up much product on my brush but I think this is probably a good thing for just getting a subtle contour and not getting a brown line down my face.
I used the Flat Eyeliner Brush to line the lash line using the Noir colour from the Sleek palette. Really like this brush! Much easier to line with than the others I have.
As for my eyes, I really like this Sleek palette but I decided to play with some colours I don't usually use (besides 'Bark'). I'm very much a "matte makeup" girl but I used 'Toast' and 'Taupe' together to get a nice golden, shimmery look and then I put 'Bark' through the crease. I really like it actually. Definitely need to start straying from my comfort zone a little bit more. 
Also, did not realise what a good job this mascara actually did! Everyone and their cat seemed to have picked up ELLE magazine with the free mini sample in however, I bought the sample size from Boots a few weeks before I knew ELLE was doing this. Very annoying to say the least! Especially as I didn't think it was even that great before seeing this photo. It is an absolute pain to take off though and I get a horrible 'spiders leg' look if I put it on my bottom lashes so I have to use Bad Gal for those.

I feel a lot better today and I think dressing up may have helped. Well that tied with a brilliant Game of Thrones episode and buying Les Mis on DVD...
Hope all you guys are feeling fine and dandy!
