A FULL FACE OF BOBBI BROWN.

4 comments


I've had a number of questions re. my thoughts on Bobbi's new longwear foundation, so as well as sharing those today, I thought I'd do a full face from the brand, because I'm really loving their makeup at the moment (I've just seen they have new sparkle shadow sticks too *heart eyes*). I'll see you after the jump break!





IVY CASTLE VIEW, GUILDFORD.

If you saw my last post, you'll have seen a snippet of our brunch at The Ivy, Chelsea, and funnily enough, the very next day, I was invited to the opening of it's sister restaurant - the Ivy Castle View in Guildford! (massively exciting as it's so close by *heart eyes*)

OOTD // TOWN + COUNTRY.

2 comments


The town and the country mice. Does anyone else remember that old story?

If I were a mouse, I'd definitely be of the country variety, but there's a bit of the town mouse left in me! And I think that's fairly reflected in my clothing choices too.

I recently popped on the train into London and met up with my friend and fellow blogger, Nish, for lunch at the Ivy Chelsea Garden (a gorgeous, bustling spot where you can disappear into anonymity) and we had the most glorious weather! I decided to go with an incredibly comfortable, practical outfit of city classics with just a smidge of country style.

THREE OF MY BIGGEST SKIN CONCERNS + MY FAVOURITE PRODUCTS TO SOLVE THEM.

8 comments




On the whole, my skin tends to behave itself (apart from hormonal blemishes which often run rife once a month). I do however have a few skin concerns, that if I'm not careful, can become a bit of a problem. There are certain products that immediately come to mind when my skin is playing up. Whether that's from dryness, sensitivity or dullness, I've come to know what are my favourite problem-solving skincare items are, that are sure to give me a boost.

I've already spoken about how I tend to deal with acne and acne scarring - all of the points from that post still stand if you're curious!

So let me share with you the items I reach for in my times of need! See you after the jumpbreak :)

OOTD // HALFWAY-SPRING FLORALS.

6 comments


I feel like I've been living in jumpers and jeans (and a particular pair of cosy cable knit socks) for most of 2018, and we're now into the fourth month of the year!

I know the UK is somewhat famed for it's.. "temperate" weather but I think there's only been one day this year I haven't had to wear a coat. Until (and I say this tentatively) now??

F and I took a little shopping trip to Windsor the other day, and whilst it wasn't particularly sunny, it was mild! So whilst I'm still donning this classically gorgeous pair of boots and some fairly thick tights, I'm also wearing what I think is my first dress of the year, and my new favourite coverup. See you after the jumpbreak!

10 THINGS THAT'VE MADE ME HAPPY #12

April April April. I can't believe we're already there. Although I'm pretty excited for Spring now. I feel like I keep saying so too.

Here's what's been making me happy lately :) See you after the jumpbreak!

FINDING YOUR PERFECT SCENT
+ MY THOUGHTS ON CHLOE NOMADE.

I'm getting excited about Spring now.

We're starting to see signs of warmer weather on the way - I drove past a magnolia tree today with buds almost fit to burst, and it was the first day this year I've put the aircon in the car on! 

I find the change in seasons really exciting - an excuse to refresh and reboot our wardrobes, our makeup and skincare, the foods we eat and ingredients we cook with. And, an excuse to buy yourself a new Spring scent. Because there's nothing like a new perfume to set you up for a new season.

SPRING FAVOURITES.

It's time for Spring favourites! A little style, a lot of skincare, a dash of makeup - I'm sharing the pieces I'm coveting most this season, so see you after the jumpbreak! :)

OOTD // ANOTHER PAIR OF BLACK JEANS.

4 comments


You know what. I'm so ready for Spring. We've had two occasions in March of being snowed in and I'm fed up of wearing black jeans (although surely not as much as you are of seeing them ;) Feel assured in the fact though that I've managed to buy some blue/standard denim ones! Including these perfect straight leg jeans that I found for £20, for what I can only think was an incredibly fortunate pricing error?!).

But F and I did brave the blustery, pre-snow conditions the other day for a bit of a country stroll, and I took the camera with us. So if we can just be OK with a bit of an OOTD (because I really like these boots - although *note*, don't walk through wet grass/moss/mud with them on their first outing..) including black jeans you'd really make my day. Well alrighty then, I'll take that as a yes ;) See you after the jumpbreak :)

A FULL FACE OF CHARLOTTE TILBURY
FLAWLESS FILTER + LIP SERVICE TRIO REVIEW.

I've quite a few Charlotte Tilbury favourites by now, and there have been a few new launches that I'm excited to talk about, so today I thought I'd do a makeup look using all of my favourite CT products, and trying out the new ones. Grab yourself a mug (mines a ginger and honey) and I'll meet you after the jumpbreak!
