Since my birthday is not far away and EM's packages usually take more than a week to arrive, today I decided to place my order and get myself the usual "Happy B'Day for Me from Me" gift. Don't get me wrong, I do get presents from my family on every occasion but they tend to gravitate towards that dreaded "useful stuff" instead of what I'd really like. That's probably because I'm into the kind of stuff they have little knowledge about (cosmetics, perfume, clothes and accessories, beads, gadgets, music, art tools) so it's only safe for me to invest into something I'd truly like myself.
Mum lent me some money yesterday so today I placed my order and got these:
Please girls, please cross your fingers for me and pray that it'll arrive safely! This time it's very, very important: it cost too much for it to just disappear somewhere along the way to Hungary.
Of course, I'm incredibly excited: soon, if everything goes well, I'll have an EM lip color, lots of beautiful blushes and eyeshadows, a bronzer, and some more of my favourite foundations! Squeeee! :-)
EDIT (a few hours later):
Oh by the way, the brushes are available again on EM's site (Flat Top, LH Kabuki) and of course, I only noticed that after finalizing my order... Right, maybe next time. ^_^
EDIT (yet another couple of hours later...):
Wheee! It's hasn't even been ten hours since I placed the order and it's already been shipped according to EM's website! That means it should be here by next Friday! Yay!
On to something else. The weather has been changing here in Hungary in the past few years, and not for the better. We've been experiencing storms that now claim lives, 500 people died from the heatwave last summer and we didn't even have a real winter this year.
Last Sunday there was a huge gale with the speed of the wind reaching 120 km/h. What has not happened in 40 years happened now: two tall aspens were ripped from their places and fell. I happened to catch the moment when the second one happened and let me tell you it made my blood run cold. The thing is these trees are only meters away from our house and quite a bit taller too so if one of them happened to tilt the other way our house would probably have been damaged seriously.
I took some shots after the weather calmed down a bit that day but didn't dare to go outside because the wind was entirely unpredictable and I didn't exactly want to get stuck in the middle of another storm like that. Therefore, their quality is not the best (pics taken through the windowpane) but they'll probably give you an idea of the seriousness of the situation.
