Things I Bought, Soul-Void Edition


Seeking new employment. That’s the classiest way to put it, right? As of this week I am currently seeking new employment, resulting in an unprecedented amount of free time and a soul-void that can only be filled with consumerism. Perfect shopping conditions!

British Vogue, April 2014 edition. I have never spent $12 on a magazine in my life, but it’s the Nigella cover! Nigella once sent me a Direct Message on Twitter, so she is basically my adoptive mother and I need to support her in all her endeavors. The interview mentions that her new apartment is strewn with Diptyque Feu de Bois candles. My apartment is strewn with Feu de Bois candles, you guys! (Okay, candle, singular.) We have a connection, y’all.

Cire Trudon Perfumed Candle in Abd el Kader. I haven’t dared to actually burn it yet (Zelda is scary enough without access to fire), but even unused, Abd el Kader fills my room with the most mouthwatering mint scent.

Essie Nail Polish in Bikini So Teeny. At $8.00, Essie polishes make a nicely priced pick-me-up after a rough day. Which is probably why I’ve accumulated five of them since moving to New York.

Grreat Choice Foam Ball Cat Toy. Zelda loves these bouncy balls so much more than she will ever love me.

Cirque Nail Lacquer in Alter Ego. I’ve been looking for a holographic black polish forever, but even though this one is gorgeous, it’s not very impressive without direct sunlight. Might return it.

Not pictured: Etat Libre d’Orange La Fin du Monde, on its way to me from the Parfum1 warehouse. God, I love this one. It’s Tilda Swinton Like This without the syrup. It was only $64 with their 20% off sale, which ends tonight! Fly, my minions!

Have you made any exciting purchases lately? What are your rough day pick-me-ups? Any black holo polish suggestions? Please share with us in the comments!
