Tales of Easter, no. 2

Yesterday, my first full day back, was lovely. After waking up early I tried, and failed, to get some exercise in before sitting with Moom for breakfast. Then, after a bit of faffing here and there, we took a trip into a local town (I'm not sure that's the correct term but I can't be bothered to look up what constitutes a village/town/city) with my Dad, stopping in Costa for a chat before he left to go back to work. A couple of chores later, I found myself in Superdrug, with photos of some of Estee's recommendations on my phone to refer to, in the hope of purchasing myself a whole new face wardrobe! As ever, things didn't quite go to plan.

My main product hope was for a foundation and, having searched through previous posts and YouTube vids, I had decided that I would chose between Boujois' Healthy Mix Serum Foundation and Revlon's Nearly Naked with the thought that I would be able to make a more well-informed decision in person although this was, of course, was too good to be true. Not being able to do so, I went on to have a look at a few other products and thankfully came away with MUA's 'Heaven and Earth' palette as planned. Having been unable to choose a foundation, nor a mascara (my next most important item) I decided to visit Boots. However, being a small town, the size of Boots followed suit. The branch typically didn't stock Revlon, and I couldn't make my mind up about the Bourjois. Also, I was thoroughly frustrated to discover they now plastic-wrap the mascara's (I guess that's how long its been since I last bought myself one!) and not all of the wands are displayed, therefore I also walked away without a mascara. I did, however, purchase both the blush and concealer pictured below (3 for 2, Moom also made a purchase) although, without a foundation, I can't do much with them but, hey-ho, at least I tried!

Anywhoo, after meeting up with the boy for lunch, Moom and I went to see Auntie Ju, and the three of us had a right good old natter for a couple of hours. I was very kindly given my Easter gift - which you can again see below - of a new book (which I've just started and am enjoying), my bunny choc's and a muffin tin that I'm excited to put to good use! After the natter we ventured back home for me to cook the roast for the 4 of us (the boy popped over). I then settled in for the evening with some Galaxy choc and a cuppa to read the day's posts I'd missed and then to watch Broadchurch for the first time on a real-live actual TV (normally it's a catch-up on the laptop jobby!)
I then retired to my bedroom (that's my attempt at making my words seem high-brow), read a little then succumbed to sleep.

My purchases - MUA Heaven and Earth, Natural Collection Blush in Peach Melba and Collection' Lasting
Perfection Concealer in Pale

To my fabulous Tori's Tales comment'ers - I cherish each and every comment you take the time to leave me and, because of that, I reply to each and every one in return. If you have a Twitter account, then that's where you'll find me replying (because, let's be honest, I live on Twitter. In Twitter. Around Twitter. Twitter). If you don't then fear not, because a) this means you don't say stuff like the things above and b) I'll find you elsewhere.......
