My Current Skincare Routine

One of the good things about being in and out of lockdown is that I've had more time to really perfect my skincare routine.  I've always been pretty good with my nighttime routine but I didn't have much of a morning one so now that I\"m not rushing out the door to get to the office I have been able to figure out what my skin needs during the day as well as the night.


I still want to keep my routine quite simple in the mornings because when things do go back to normal I don\"t want to be wasting a lot of time on it.  So this is what I've been doing:

Step 1: Clean my face with some micellar water and a cotton pad.  I use this one from Superdrug.

Step 2: Spray my face with a mist.  I use either the Mario Badescu Aloe Vera one or this one from Caudalie.

Step 3: I use a vitamin c serum as it really helps to brighten the skin.  I'm currently loving this one from The Ordinary.

Step 4: I go in with SPF, this is so important for protecting your skin from the sun, even in the winter.  I use this tinted one from La Roche Posay.


I like to spend a little more time on my skin in the evenings if I can because I think over night is when the magic really happens!

Step 1: I use an oil based cleanser to remove my makeup.  I currently mix it up between this Bareminerals one, this Elemis one and this Clinique one.

Step 2: I use a foaming cleansers to really clean my skin and remove any last bits of makeup.  I'm currently using this one from Drunk Elephant, this one from First Aid Beauty and this one from Cerave.

Step 3: Use a toner to brighten my skin.  I use this one from Clinique, this one from Superdrug or this one from Pixie.

Step 4: I use a serum targeted for my skin's needs.  I'm currently using this one from The Ordinary and it's so good for my dry skin.

Step 5: I use a moisturiser or oil to hydrate my skin.  I'm currently using this one from Superdrug, this one from Olay, this one from Josie Maran and this one from Origins.

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
