My Current Skincare Routine

I'm not sure whether I've ever done one of these posts but if I have it definitely hasn't been for a long time and there are a few recent purchases that I wanted to talk about.

I bought this a few weeks ago as I was looking for a good drugstore cleansing oil and had heard good things about this.  It did not disappoint.  Apparently it rivals the Clarins version.  I love the pump applicator and I just squirt one drop onto my fingers and then massage onto my skin.  It removes all my makeup, including waterproof mascara and then I just need to wash off with water and a muslin cloth or flannel.

After I've removed my makeup I either use a face wash or this scrub and it's amazing.  It comes out like a clay substance and smells so fruity and zesty.  My skin feels really smooth after use.  The best thing about Arbonne products is that they're completely chemical free and vegan.
This is another good little supermarket find.  I was doing my grocery shopping and looking for a toner and saw this one which is a rather large bottle and I think it was half price at the time so I thought I'd give it a try.  When I use it, it makes my skin feel a lot fresher and cleaner.
Then I go in with my old fave, the Boots facial oil.  I only use this of an evening but I find it really hydrates my skin as it can get quite dry.  I also like the fact that it's a very natural product and gets my skin really glowing.  I hated the idea of facial oils a year ago and now I can't get enough of them!
Lastly I go in with my moisturiser.  I use this morning and night.  the one I have is targeted at dry skin and is ultra hydrating but there are five different ones depending on your skin type.  I wouldn't say my skin is really dry, it's more normal to dry but when it comes to moisturiser I like quite a thick one.
So that's my basic skincare routine.  I do swap up the facial scrub with a facial wash every few days.  I feel like my skin is the best it's been at the moment.  I don't know whether that's down to diet, lifestyle or this skincare routine but everyone differs so it's important to find what works for you.

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here . Not only does   Esprit   do runway trends for

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
