What's on my dressing table?

I figured I could never do a "what's in my bag" post, as my bag is always, always filled with such items as receipts, pens, a glove or two, a forgotten cough sweet etc. etc. But at least my dressing table is pretty so here we are:

I don't really do that many face products- moisturiser, concealer, eyeliner.. not much else. But when I was passing through Duty Free recently I decided to buy the Clarins Beauty Flash Balm, and have since decided it is amazing and I can't do without it. I can't really say what it does ("brightens. tightens" claims the bottle) but it does it well! And the other is blush (this is "Demure" from Topshop) which I can't not use either, or else I look permanently peaky (as my grandmother would have said- she's the one pictured that isn't of course Audrey Hepburn).

Bwackums being unimpressed with me taking photos of items on my dressing table.

I'm going to make the most of D being out with work people to paint, and rewatch I Capture the Castle. I rather forgot quite how handsome Henry Cavill was in it...

  1. I'm sorry that you're having such a rubbishy time at work, I wish you so much luck in finding a new job! :) Ps - I see you have a few topshop make up products (well I recognised topshop nail polish), are they any good?

  8. Henry Cavill is LUSH in I Capture The Castle. Mind you, he's scrummy in everything. A friend tracked down a crappy horror film for me with him in and he's topless quite a lot *fans self* I was a little bit heartbroken when I found out he's just got engaged :(

    Isn't your dressing table tidy? Mine is mostly covered in dust.

  20. I love that first picture, is that a teacup full of rings? I love teacups and rings so that is the cutest thing ever! I also like the perfume bottle, very pretty. Are the Topshop nail polishes good? I have seen that they have a lot of nice colours. I hope things with work get better soon!
