My first Inglot experience... Unfortunately not a good one.

When I realised that an Inglot shop opened nearby I couldn't wait to go check it out. After all, I have heard many people rave about it. Great quality for an affordable price, what more could a make up addict want?

So yesterday I got a chance to pop in. A rather miserable looking shop assistant was standing near the entrance as I walked in, but I got no reaction to my friendly "hello". I instantly felt awkward and like I wasn't welcome in the store. Not ideal during a first time visit...

Fortunately for Inglot, I instantly fell in love with the eye shadow display, so went on and tested a few products. The shop assistant watched me from the corner of her eyes, however not making a single attempt to talk to me or offer her advice. My boyfriend was quite appalled at the lack of customer service and asked her if she was okay, and she bluntly replied that she was "fine, just tired". That was all she said to us during my visit.

Inglot eye shadow in number 444

As a result I didn't exactly feel enticed to spend a lot of money. One of my purchases is eye shadow number 444, a gorgeous taupe-y silver. The product range is definitely impressive, but I am disappointed with the service that is so important in the make up industry. It's a shame.

Life Updates

Hello everyone. It sure has been a while... I am currently sitting on my sofa, in my sitting room, after having made a lovely breakfast in my kitchen—yes, we have finally moved into our own place and it is wonderful. But it took a hell of a lot of time to get it to "wonderful"!

The move was, even more so than expected, very stressful. A lot of furniture had to be bought, and most of it had to be built first, too. But we got there eventually, and even though there are still a few boxes here and there that still haven't been unpacked, I think it's safe to say we are finally settled.

I also have been sent a chunky reading list for my post graduate course starting in September, so I certainly won't be relaxing too much over the summer. Moreover, I'm starting my summer job soon after graduation ceremonies, which means I currently really don't have much time to invest into my blog.

We'll see, I don't want to say, "that's it, it's over", but I also don't want to promise regular blog posts. If you like my blog, please remain subscribed and I might surprise you with a few posts this summer.

I hope everyone out there is doing well! x
