Yay, another new makeup collection to play with! I was extremely impressed with parts of Dior's Spring 2016 Glowing Gardens (review & swatches here) collection, and today have all the swatches from Summer 2016 Milky Dots ready for you, let's see how it fares!
There's a lot that I'm currently excited about in the beauty world, Summer 2016 collections are getting ready to be released and there seems to be a veritable bounty of wares to spend your money on. Today I'm sharing some high end must haves in my current wishlist.
I'm a bit obsessed with rosy shades as of late, whether it's a nice dusky pink, a deep-reddened rose or even pinky, golden tones on the eyes, rose-toned products have sprouted across my collection. I've got some of my favourite rosy lippies as well as a sneakily good dupe for a discontinued Tom Ford beauty, have a peek.
This is one of my most very favourite, naughty breakfast dishes. Or brunch. Or dessert, because it honestly tastes like cake. The first time I tried this recipe, I was a bit dubious that a pancake could be as satisfying as a sticky, unctuous cinnamon bun, but if you share my initial skepticism, let me put your reservations to rest.
Finding dupes has got to be one of my favourite things. And the last skincare dupes post I did was over a year ago, definitely due a fresh batch! I thought I'd focus on Korean skincare items this time, as it's no secret how infatuated with them I am, and, turns out, some are remarkably similar to some high-end, cult favourites.
I haven't done a ramble/update for an awfully long time. I've definitely been guilty of getting caught up amongst every new makeup collection/product release etc, that I've neglected my lifestyle posts a little. This past week (read 'much longer') has been all change on this end, so I just thought I'd talk about it today.
OTHER NEWS | In less 'serious' news! The new house and all has given me a fab opportunity to embrace minimalism, I'm really trying to cull a lot of my possessions, so I may well blog about that little journey too! Isn't it crazy what we accumulate?! I found stacks and stacks of mazagines hidden behind some furniture, as well as lamps, documents, mirrors, all squirreled away. On the subject of hoarding, does anyone else buy makeup/skincare and think it's far too beautiful/expensive to use so it just sits around looking pretty? I need to stop! My collection isn't in keeping with my new minimalist outlook!
I think I've wittered on enough for today, hope I haven't bored you all to death!
How has everyone else's week been? Has anyone else been embracing massive changes lately?

A subtle, radiant sheen is the best accessory if you're big on skin, that's why my highlighter collection is growing exponentially! I'm sharing several of my favourites today, not so much 'cheeks on fleek' but the kind that make you glow in the prettiest way possible, the IRL (or in-real-life) Instagram filters. I've even got swatches for you. #photographinghighlighterstruggles
I have to say, to impart some moisture into my skin, I really like the Dior Hydra Life line. They've just released a couple of new additions to the range, in the form of their Jelly Sleeping Mask and Water BB and I obviously pounced on them. There are some hits but also definite misses here.. read on for swatches and my first impressions.
What with the house move literally within days now (eek I'm so excited!) I'm peachy keen on getting in there and making things more personal and 'us'. Not that I frankly don't do this in general but I've been pouring over Pinterest/interior magazines etc getting inspiration on how to jujzz (I'm committing to that spelling) up your space. No need for paint or investing in new furniture, a few, well-chosen decorative items can really update your look.
