001. BIODERMA Crealine H2O: I have always been told for years how bad face wipes are, but I have never cared - they are easy! But recently I have started to notice how they really do just scrape the top layer of my skin, so I decided to look for the perfect make up remover.... and I found it! I had seen this product on one of Lisa Eldridge's wonderful videos and she made it sound amazing. It is a French product though, so I had to order it on ebay. But trust me I will be stocking up on it when I go to France in May. It literally feels like water and takes eye make up off like a dream! I also use it as a toner after taking my face makeup off. It is just lovely and a pleasure to use.
002. AVENE Gentle Milk Cleanser: This is a lovely, gentle milk cleanser which I use with cotton wool pads to remove my makeup at night. It takes a couple of goes to get it all off, but it is worth it as it makes my face feel really nice and fresh after.
003. OILATUM Natural Repair Face Cream: This is a really great moisturizer, especially for the morning to wear under makeup. It's all natural and really moisturizes my skin well. It is nice to have found an affordable product as I use so much of it!
004. AVON eye pallette in Neutral: This is a very handy eye shadow palette. I love the colours, they are really easy to work with and are so useful to have all in one place. They are not as pigmented as I would like, but are quite easy to build up.
005. MAC Shadestick in Sharkskin: My mum got this for me in Canada. I really wanted to try it, as I find pencil eye liner quite hard to use. This is really nice, it is really soft and easy to blend out with a brush after application. I'd probably only use this at night as it's quite intense for the daytime.
006. ELIZABETH ARDEN ceremide cream blush in Nectar: I first tried this blusher at London Fashion Weekend at the Elizabeth Arden stand. It's the first time I've tried a cream blush and as I expected I love it! It is so easy to apply - I use my fingers to put it on and then blend it out with my foundation brush. I love the peachy colour and I know I am going to get so much use out of this during the Summer.
Sorry for the long post, but hope you find it interesting!
It is getting to that time of year when it is too warm for my winter coat but still too cold for just a jumper. I came across this jacket in Uniqlo and it is perfect! It is really thin and is the perfect length for me. It's so easy to put on top of a thin jumper, so I have been wearing it everyday since I bought it. It also has a hood, which is great for those unpredictable rainy English days. It was only £20, which I think is a really reasonable price for such a useful item!
I've got a couple of weddings coming up this year and one of them is my sister's. I have always found it really hard to dress for weddings... I'm not really a conventional dress kinda girl. I like to feel like myself, I don't like to feel like I am wearing something just because I should be. Does that even make sense?
I know the sort of thing that I want and have been looking EVERYWHERE , but I just can't find anything. I did however find some shoes in All Saints (where I never shop). I am not a massive shoe person, mainly because I usually opt for comfort (boring, I know). But something happened when I tried these on, I swear, I fell in love.
I can't walk in them, they are not particularly comfy, I look like a tree when I wear them, they were expensive and they are absolutely ridiculous... but you know what? I DON'T CARE, I LOVE THEM!!!
What do you think?
I think the nude colour and open toe balances out the crazy wedge/heel... so they are not TOO over the top. I am just worried about how tall I am in them, I hate it when everyone says 'Oh my god, you're so tall!'... it really annoys me. I just want to say, 'no, you're just really short'.
I'd love to hear what you guys think, so please comment and let me know!
P.s. I definitely have to dedicate this blog post to one of my best friends from Uni - I've never met a girl more into her shoes!! She knows who she is... I hope you approve of these!
I have been looking for some kinda oversized, loose knit, spring type jumper...
The Topshop and Urban Outfitter ones are amazing, but just too expensive. I can't bring myself to spend that much on something which is so cheap to make. I was walking down Oxford Street last week and in the corner of my eye I saw this jumper in a store. It is from Vera Moda, which is a store that has never appealed to me. It was in the sale for £10, so I obviously grabbed it and bought it straight away. I love it, it is perfect for the weather at the moment.
Waking up on a Saturday morning to the sun shining so brightly through my windows was beautiful. I wish it was like that every day.
