New Beauty Products I'm Loving

I've been trying out some new beauty products over the last few months from hair care, to skin care to makeup and I thought I would share some of my favourites.

Lancome Skin Feels Good Foundation

I bought this foundation quite a few months ago now so I've been able to give it a good test drive.  I bought it because I'd read good reviews about it.  I will say it's quite lightweight even for my liking but that's fine as it's buildable so I just do 2 pumps as opposed to my usual 1 for all other foundations.  What I also love about this is that it has a high SPF.  To be honest, I would say this foundation is more of a BB cream.

Redken All Soft Conditioner

I have been raving about this on my Instagram lately because it has made my hair so soft, as the name suggests and I LOVE when a product does what it says on the tin.  Redken products are just amazing anyway so I never doubted that it would be anything other than amazing.  I've almost finished the bottle.

Philosophy Microdelivery Exfoliating Facial Wash

I feel like a lot of people don't use physical exfoliators anymore and instead prefer chemical serums or toners.  I, however, love a good facial scrub.  This one is gentle enough to use every day but with my dry skin I prefer to use it two to three times per week.  It's a gel like consistency with little micro-beads so doesn't feel harsh on the skin at all.

Academy of Colour Lip Kit

This was a present from my mum for Christmas and she bought me two other colours too.  I love them because you can wear them so many ways; on their own or double and tripled up depending on your mood!  They are quite long wearing too.

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder

I bought this some months ago now and when it first turned up I wasn't sure it would work.  It says that it's transparent but it's very white in colour.  However, it works really well and if you put enough on, it does lighten the colour of your foundation which is good for me when I'm not as tanned!  I can't say that it really minimises pores but it definitely keeps the shine at bay.

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 .

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
