These are some of my very favourite beauty blogger posts to read, and as my last one was a pretty long time ago, I thought today I'd do an updated edition - although, insider update, I shot these photos just before my birthday, so the YSL Couture Contour (full review here) and Tom Ford Shimmer Shot (full review here) have definitely since made the cut - let's just pretend they're gracing the edit with their presence.. Anyway, let's get cracking with what's in my autumnal makeup bag!

TEA AT NUMBER SIXTEEN.

Afternoon tea is a big deal in London. There's something about tiny food stacked up in silver towers that raises our mood levels, and it's always the perpetual dilemma of which of the hundreds in London to try next.

First up, a thank you to you all for being patient Polly's whilst I sort out my camera situation, posts will be more regular asap! Today, I'm here with a full rundown of the Aromatica Sea Daffodil Aqua Gel Cream, first featured in my Kbeauty haul from Buttermilk Skincare. Gel creams are some of my favourite skincare items, but I've always found it hard to find a good one: one that offers hydration, lightness and top notch ingredients, so let's see how this one fares.

Well hello beauties, the camera is fixed and I am back! (and thank you for your patience whilst I've been AWOL). If you've been with me a while here on BTB, you'll know that I am the harshest critic of mascara and liquid liners, an ardent and devoted supporter of just the one or two of each.

The moment when, as a blogger, you break your camera..

I wanted to give a little explanation as to why I might seem to be posting a little less frequently at the moment! I thought I was being really smart by wrapping the camera strap around my wrist because it's a heavy piece of kit and I didn't want to drop it whilst taking flatlays. Unfortunately, that backfired when I went to get more props and tripped over a cable on the way back.. So I'm currently checked into Heartbreak Hotel whilst I wait for it to be repaired, so apologies for posts being a little thin on the ground at the moment and thank you all for your patience - I'll get things going again as soon as I can!

In the meantime I'll share a few photos from Instagram lately, starting with some beautiful blooms from Blossoming Gifts. If you didn't see my full review, they were generous enough to give me the code BGIFTS33 for 33% off (from which I don't benefit btw!) your choice of beautiful bouquets, I plumped for roses (obviously) and I feel like I need some more, now that it's getting colder and more miserable!

Need to give a mention to my Grown Alchemist lipbalm, which is my new favourite friend - the watermelon scent is like the last piece of summer as the season wanes, and it moisturises my lips exceptionally - they've been chapped, dry and crappy lately and this is doing wonders.

As for posts, I wrote about rebooting your life in September, and even though we're now in October (birthday month eek!), all the tips are still relevant, so you may find it useful! Another set of tips is my 5 Favourite Ways To Feel Prettier - and they're all easy as pie. I'm going to do an updated what's in my makeup bag as soon as I can get some pictures down, but check out the third pic above (or my Insta) for some strong favourites.

To round things up, I want to show some love for Vee's array of beautiful highlighters including the Modern Mercury highlighter *swoon* - go and give her account a follow, so many gorgeous products.



Like I mentioned above, October means birthday for me, and I'm stuck with my wishlist! What makeup and skincare items are you lusting after?? Let me know in the comments below!
