Coming back from the dead and Lancôme gorgeousness !

I've been MIA for about 2 weeks but I have a good excuse...I have been attacked by a vicious virus (probably the twisted twin of the H1N1 that we were sick hearing about last year...)

I ended up fainting in my shower last Monday from fever and exhaustion. Sadly , I didn't do it with the grace of a princess : hubby had to drag me out of the shower from my armpits (Glamour , where are you when I need you badly !). Then he carried me upstairs like a prince he is, so I could lay down. I came back to life all groggy and nauseous just to scream that I needed a bucket right away !!! Yes I know the fainting princess coming back to life all rosy and flushed is not my cup of tea...

As I decided that it was not enough to traumatize the poor soul, I began quaking like the San Francisco area and did a very convincing re-incarnation of the Exorcist by having an hyperventilating episode followed by a very convincing spastic status. Let me explain : imagine the claws of an eagle, see ? I did the exact same thing with my hands but instead of having the claws inside, my fingers were twisted outside...Hubby was green ....He nearly call 911 but I prevented this from happening as I used to do that when a teen (yes love, you married a weird fainting lady !) ....Then I spent 3 full days bed ridden with hubby phoning every 10 min from work to make sure I was not climbing the walls and walking the ceilings to have time fly quicker....

So as you can guess no FOTD as I still look pretty awful ....but a little Lancôme pic can do in terms of beauty....

I received this mini palette as a present when I left my previous job. It came with a primer for lashes and a mini mascara (as well as a fantastic lipstick, a serum a nd a body cream, I'll review later)
I know what you think : Humph, boring ! ....but wait until the swatches :

Wohooooo, look at that purple : yummy !
I never bought a lash primer : my lashes are long and healthy (I'd prefer my legs to be described like that but hey, I'll take what I have ...). But I must admit I am completely bluffed by what this primer did to my lashes : They nearly reach my brows !!! Never say never ....

I am relieved OOTD

This blog is about :
-improving my English skills
-talking about make up and a little bit of fashion

So tadaaaaaaa today, I'll play synonyms to fulfill the 1st goal of this blog

Caro had an horrendous day at her job
Caro had a dreadful week at her job
Caro had a terrible month at her job

Caro quited her job and is ready for new adventures, now ! Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaaa

To the outfit :
brown turtleneck bought in France while on vacation : Cache-cache
beige kaki pants : Joe Fresh in sale for 9$
Leopard shoes : Franco Sarto in sale too for 49$99 (let's get precise !)
Funky jewelry : gift from mother in law

Camel jacket bought at Zara in Paris (I am SOOOOOOO fancy !) : in sale , a long time ago...So I can't remember the price nice, I am an old lady, my memory is not what it used to be ...
Aldo hat : 3$98 (I told you I'd be precise !)
Bad ass attitude resulting in quiting job : priceless !

Caro-quitter for the sake of her mental state xxx

PS : just to give me a boost of ego : Do you , English people, understand a single word of what I write ? Or do you just watch pics and wonder "who the BEEP is that weird girl ?"
PS II : You'll notice that I start to use slang words ...Is it a clue that my English is improving ?
PS III : Isabelle and Virginie, if you read those lines, the package you sent me was the joy of my ultimately shitty week ! (see again ! forbidden words...I am definitively fluent ....)
