Cinema trip and Review and a little beauty buy- 17 Precious Metals

Well, I've been busy the past couple of days however today I had nothing on the agenda and hadn't planned anything or even thought about what I'd do. I didn't set my alarm and woke up around 9.30. Lazed around for a few hours watching tripe such as Jeremy Kyle and This Morning before deciding on an action plan....I checked the cinema listings and decided to go to see a film...ALONE. Now this is something I have always wanted to do but never had the courage to do it. So today I plucked up the courage and went to see The Killers as it was between that and 'Get Him To The Greek' but The Killers was on at a more convenient time so The Killers it was!!!

Now in order to get to the cinema I go through town so I popped into Boots along the way and perused the 17 aisle- something I haven't done since I was about 12 but I have heard good things about their nail varnishes and their mirror shine lipsticks. They had a new collection on display- precious metals and what stood out to me was the Bronzer which looks similar to the Bobbi Brown highighters with four stripes of varying shades. I didn't swatch it as they didn't have any open testers but as it was a bargainous £4.50 or something I took it straight to the till to purchase!

After swatching it, I would definitey not call it a bronzer- it is shimmery with little colour payoff and is definitely more of a highlighting product. It reminds me of the Dior Amber Glow highlight although I do not own this product and I am just going by what I have seen on other peoples blogs but if you are strapped for cash and would like a highlight this is definitely a good option as a lot of the cheaper brands don't often stock highlighters.

I would also recommend the film the killers and if like me you're an Ashton he looks AMAZING in this film- crisp white shirts and black suits -yum!!!!! I didn't have high expectations for the film so I was pleasantly surprised when I watched it!! Got quite a few laughs so it was worth going, as it was during the day it was quiet and I didn't feel too conspicuous sitting alone. There were a few other couples and another lone viewer.
