Festival Style

Festival Fashion 2017

Not at Coachella this weekend? Don’t worry you can plan out your summer/festival wardrobe instead. With some great offers on this weekend, hello ASOS discount bonanza, it’s time to start planning your summer wardrobe.

I’ve picked out some festival inspired pieces in case you are planning a festival this year, but I think these would also work well on holiday or even on a hot summer’s day in the UK just lounging in the park.

So get off Instagram, stop dwelling and start buying! Oh and check out my HUGE beauty haul from my time in the U.S! Read More »

10 Things To Do In Los Angeles

10 things to do in Los Angeles - Travel Blog

If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen I was in Los Angeles last week. It was my first time visiting this part of America and I must say I had the best time. I absolutely loved L.A, the vibe is very chilled, I don’t think I have been anywhere, not even a beach break where I have felt as chilled out as I have in Los Angeles. The weather was glorious sunshine and with the palms blowing in the wind you can really explore at your own pace. Danny and I spent five days in L.A before heading to Vegas to celebrate my birthday, but that’s for another post.

I had asked a lot of people about L.A before I went. Many had passed on recommendations, many loved, many disliked, so I was really unsure what I would make of it myself. With some even passing comment to say that if you like New York you wouldn’t like Los Angeles. I love New York so I had my reservations. I feel that couldn’t have been more wrong, they are both very different. New York is like London on steroids and I love it for that, whereas Los Angeles is über chilled, über being the word here as we had to Uber & Lyft our way around town. We both really enjoyed our time here. Read More »

Get A Golden-Hour Glow With Smashbox Radiance Primer

Smashbox Photo Finish Radiance Primer

Primer, the next step after moisturiser and before foundation. So what does it do? It can do many things, hydrate skin, make foundation stay on longer and also blur imperfections and pores. I find it an essential part of my make-up kit. One of my favourite primers has got to be Guerlain L’Or Primer, it’s hydrating and it gives my face a certain radiance, although it is slightly on the more expensive scale of the make-up primers so it’s good to have a few alternatives.

Recently I tried out Smashbox Photo Finish Radiance Primer. The first thing that striked me about this primer was that it was tinted. It has a slight orangey glow to it, but when applied it doesn’t seem to have much colour at all, it sort of adapts to the skin and provides a warmth and that radiance I mentioned in the title. The primer was designed to recreate the golden-hour lighting that gives that oh so amazing look in photographs.

Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation & Concealer

Clinique Perfecting Foundation & Concealer

Choosing a foundation is hard. How do you choose the right colour, formula, coverage and price point for you, all whilst either browsing online – the hardest way to colour match, or even at the counter whilst confronted with so many options. It’s definitely a bit of a minefield. Luckily I do get to try my fair share of foundations in beauty blogging and so today I wanted to report back to you on my findings with Clinique’s Beyond Perfecting Foundation & Concealer.

For me nothing has quite matched up to my favourite foundation Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk. Recently Dolce & Gabbana Luminous Foundation came very close, but again this is an expensive option and in the end it did prove to highlight my drier areas, so it wasn’t going to take the spotlight just yet from the Armani.

So can Clinique Beyond Perfecting foundation take its place? Here is what I thought. Read More »
