Autumn is very much on its way and I cannot cope. I’m going to be 27. It feels like just yesterday that I was trying to jujitsu my way out of my mum’s womb…
So, do I have anything special planned for my 27th? Watching Aladdin with my besties and crying into my pillow at the sorry state that is my life – not Florida.
I’ll also be prepping to spend Christmas someplace else.
What does Autumn mean to me? Crisp leaves, beautiful trees… A dressing gown, wearing soft and fluffy socks around the house [instead of slippers] and boiling water infused with mint leaves, pretending it’s “pumpkin spice latte”.
Do I have any ideas on how I’ll be spending Halloween? I had a Wonder Woman costume in my wardrobe [which I was going to wear when I take the kids in the neighbourhood] that has somehow done a disappearing act… So, Halloween is now cancelled. I’ll just do what I’ve done every other year: watch Thriller by MJ and reenact it in my bedroom.
Oh, and I’d probably like to carve my own name into a pumpkin.
This foundation is sensational. That’s it. That’s all I have to say. Next time you’re in need of a good foundation, visit INGLOT!
This hypoallergenic foundation provides long lasting coverage and conceals discolouration or any other imperfections. The product ensures natural, flawless finish adjusting to each skin tone and preventing excess shine. Enriched with white truffle extract, it keeps the skin moisture balanced. Suitable for sensitive skin.HD Perfect Coverup Foundation is carefully packaged into an airless 35 ml bottle that keeps the product safe and will let you use it till the last drop.
If you’re in need of an alibi, this one’s got you [and your face] covered!
Things I love about Inglot HD: it’s cheaply priced but feels luxurious. I wear it and get so many compliments (I hope), with people saying it looks like I’m not wearing any makeup.
So, if you’ve ever heard of the term “second skin”, this one has that effect in buckets.
Also, this dries matte, meaning you don’t need to finish it with powder. I usually wear it alone, with a quick brush of Benefit’s Hoola for added cheek-contour.
It comes in a range of shades and can be purchased online or in store.
Finally there are special pigments in this foundation that will make you selfie-ready. So, you don’t even need to say “cheese” to look good.
Wooooooow! I am in love with a body scrub. Y’know what I mean!?
Literally, in love. This scrub is the best scrub I have ever used and/or tried.
Baija’s royal scrub is EVERYTHING you’ve been looking for in the bathroom…
Packed with honey and soothing shea, this scrub is perfect for sloughing away dry skin. With 97% natural ingredients, it gently exfoliates whilst adding moisture back into your skin, leaving you smooth and supple for longer.
I love scrubs in general, but sugar scrubs are delightful-er! I showered half an hour ago and still smell like the sugary, caramelised sweet goodness. TASTY AF!
If you want a comparison, it’s like the sugary lip scrubs that you can find in Lush Cosmetics, but shower-worthy.
I cannot express how nice this smells, and how amazing it actually is. It leaves skin smooth, glistening and smelling sweet.
What else is there to say?
Apply it on your skin in the shower, wash it off, dry yourself and walk around smelling like sweet sugar. You don’t even need deodorant, it’s THAT good!
So, there you go. Enjoy!
Oh, and you can buy it from Birchbox for like £14. But, I got it sent to ‘Mii courtesy of Birchbox.
Bags are one of the things I love to collect… Dune‘s new-ish collection of “True Love” garments/accessories are EVERYTHING – and I was kindly sent one of their bags to review.
It’s fair to note that they have trainers in this style too, but I was worried that the diamond detail might come off quicker if they were on my feet – and this made me hesitant. So, I chose the bag to review instead.
Let me begin by discussing the colour of the bag… It’s white. No, there aren’t other colours to choose from. Yes, white is an extremely tough colour for me to pull off because I’m relatively clumsy, and will manage to spill anything and everything on it to the point where it’ll stain. Bags and accessories are no different.
But, the fact that it’s not just white all over means it’ll no doubt be less noticeable. Green, blue, red and pink really compliment the white background and the charms, pearls etc. They’re really cute together. It really does not look too busy or tacky. The mix of colours works!
The leather is great. Apart from the strap feeling a bit flimsy, the bag itself doesn’t feel tacky.
As I explained briefly up top, the look of the bag is stunning. I love it so much. It pairs beautifully with a top and jeans. I like the fact that you can wear it during the and/or on a night out.
Look, the bag is pretty small in size, but it’s still mighty nonetheless. You can store quite a bit in there, actually.
The only down sides in my opinion are the price (for a bag of its size) and the fact that the diamonds/charms might fall off after regular use.
