Weekly Photo Challenge - Hey, how was your week?

Joining in Yumeko's weekly photo challenge again!

1. Something you ate this week

Vienetta ice cream cake is a childhood favourite that I recently re-discovered, thanks to my husband. The best part is the crisp chocolate layers interspersed throughout!

Breakfast at Paul.

A simple lunch by the lake.

2. Something you bought this week

The new Essence Colour Arts collection features 20 loose pigments which can be mixed into the eye base, lip base and nail base.

I picked up the pigments in 06 WOW It's Orange, 09 Be My Brightsmaid and 19 Kiss The Frog, plus the Multi-tasker, a soft silicon spatula applicator that can be used for mixing and applying the pigments.

3. Something you wore this week

Discovered this week that Becca Eye Tint in Romanticism makes a fabulous base for Shu Uemura glitter eyeshadows, outperforming Too Faced Shadow Insurance. I've also been testing out Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush 50 Plum Wine, which is lovely except that the blush arrived completely dislodged from the metal pan and stuck to the lid. Jill Stuart Blush Blossom 07 Charming Lily is great for everyday wear. And I hit pan on my Dior Diorskin Forever Compact foundation!

4. Something you read this week

My dear sweet husband hunted down the September issues of Glamour and Elle UK for me, scoring the free Jemma Kidd I-Glamour Define Eyeliner 03 Blue with the latter.

5. Something that made you smile this week

The lilies and gladiolus finally bloomed in my garden, after months of watering them daily.

A great place for spending a lazy summer day is the Lavaux vineyard terraces by the lake near Lausanne.

If you would like to join in the fun, just leave a comment on Yumeko's post and here with a link to your blog post, and I'll be sure to check it out!

The lilies must be really fragrant!? Gardening is like looking after pets, I sometimes think about it this way.
