Beauty: What's In My Makeup Bag

So I think the last time I wrote a post similar to this was back in 2012, so I thought it was time for an update! Plus I just bought the super cute cacti makeup bag, and needed an excuse to show it off so there you go...

I tend to try out lots of different products for both skincare and makeup but there are some that I will stick with if I find it really works for me. The Chanel perfection lumiere velvet foundation is always a repeat buy, it's expensive but a great colour match for my skin (I take Beige 20). The Laura Mercier radiance primer I will definitely buy again too, it's the first Laura Mercier product I've tried and helps with an even coverage and makes my foundation last a lot longer.

I've recently got into highlighters, one that I found that's relatively cheap is the Soap & Glory Hocus Focus illuminating highlighter. I use it on my cheekbones and it gives a really nice subtle glow, I'd definitely recommend it!  

I haven't featured my complete current range of skincare products but I thought I would include a couple that I'm really loving at mo. Firstly the Nip + Fab Glycolic fix. They're little exfoliating pads that I use after I've cleansed before bedtime. They make my skin feel much cleaner and scrape away any dirt leftover on your skin. I've also been trying out a new day cream from & Other Stories. To be honest I wasn't expecting great things as it's predominantly a clothing shop and not a skincare specialist. I've been pleasantly surprised though, it feels like velvet and my skin appears to be loving it!

If you have any questions about any of the products I use feel free to drop me a comment!

Fashion: July Wishlist

Is it Autumn yet? Lol jk. But really, if summer is going to behave like this then I'm SO over it. I'm not a massive fan of summer clothing and I'm not massively into the 70s trend which has dominated pretty much everything. So I'm kinda ready for the new season offerings. I actually really love Autumn, I would even say it's probably my favourite season. Anyway let's track back as it's only July and I'm jumping the gun a bit here.

A few favourites I've got my peepers on at the moment, although it sucks as I'm being super careful with money (aside from my new bag oops) as I've got to save my spending moola for America! A girl can dream though, so here we go...

So I definitely don't need a new designer bag just yet but I would like to add a mini Pashli to my wardrobe. I haven't stopped wearing my medium Pashli tote, I just love the design, so you know another wouldn't go a miss. I'll remember to buy that lottery ticket this week...

I'm not sure why it's taken me so long to get into denim culottes. I'm a big culottes fan just hadn't dipped my toe in the denim arena. I've got these Topshop babes on the way so I'm hoping they will fit and my love affair with the culotte will continue to blossom.

As you can see, kinda liking wrap blouses right now. I realised that I really lack in the tops department of my wardrobe, as I always lean towards jackets so it's an area that needs work. Also loving the Atterley denim dress, I might buy it in time for my hols as it will be an easy throw on piece. Speaking of which definitely need the Whistles bag for my travels! Except I don't I just really freakin' want it. 

Whats on your wishlist at the mo?

Outfit: Lola May Clothing & Jord Wood Watches

Where to start? I've been a bit quiet on the blog front (though still posting regularly on Instagram) due to being so busy! I had a week off last week and thought I would get loads of blog things done but I ended up wanting to totally zone out. I had a great but jam packed week! I took a trip to London which is where I bought my new bag. I've wanted a Pashli bag for so long, it seemed like the right time. I bought it as a graduation present to myself. How nice of me.

The weather has been a bit off this week but I'm not upset as it means I've got to wear this gorgeous sheepskin bomber from Lola May. You can find them over on Asos and I've also linked directly to their website above. They do some seriously dreamy pieces!

I was kindly sent over the featured Jord wood watch to review, it's such a unique concept! I've never seen a watch made out of wood before but I love it, I've had so many comments on it so far. Your watch is made to your wrist measurement so it's a perfect fit. Usually I have to get links taken out as I have small wrists but it's perfect. Delivery was super speedy too so if you fancy yourself a new watch I'd definitely recommend one of these!

Fashion: Summer Holiday Prep

matalanholiday2 matalanholiday4 matalnholiday7 matalanholiday5 Topshop Holdall (sold out) / Espadrilles* / Sunglasses* / Beach Towel / Crochet Cover* / Bikini* (All from the Matalan Holiday Shop)

Holiday season is in full swing and I can't help but be green with envy at all those jetting off right now! I can't be too moany though as I am going away to America (Florida/Miami) but not until September! That doesn't mean I can't be prepared with my holiday wardrobe though. Especially as I saw KNITWEAR in the Asos new-in this week. I mean really? I know fashion is so far ahead but it seems crazy as summer is only just beginning in the UK. 

I had a little mooch in the Matalan holiday shop, they have tonnes of bikinis and cover ups at such amazing prices! I never spend too much on holiday items I'll be wearing at the beach/pool etc as they tend to get ruined with sun cream! The beach towel is probably my favourite thing, it's a giraffe print AND it's black and white. I'll be the envy of the pool. Maybe. 

As I'm going for almost two weeks I'm going to have to squeeze as much as I possibly can in my luggage which is why I bought this lovely suede Topshop holdall to take on the plane. It can fit SO much in it, it's honestly like a Mary Poppins bag. My plan is to squeeze my pool wear in here...with a little room left over for duty free. I cannot wait!

Are you heading off anywhere nice this summer? I'd love to see any holiday blog posts if you've been away (to make me even more jels) so feel free to leave a link!
