30 Days of Summer With Yumi

Yumi fox bag

Ever since I got back from Kefalonia, the weather in London hasn’t been completely miserable but I’ve not been walking down the beachfront in my bikini, so it’s felt pretty cold of lately compared to the lovely hot weather of Greece. Finally however today the sun came out and I was able to wear one of my new summer outfits. This outfit is part of clothing brand Yumi’s 30 Days of Summer. Where they have asked 30 bloggers to style up an outfit from their summer collection each day. If you haven’t heard of Yumi before, they do some totally gorgeous dresses, with just the best prints. You might remember a dress I wore around Christmas time with a star print? It was Yumi and one of my favourites.

How To Use 001 Skincare Eyecicle

001 skincare eyecicle

I recently met with the founder of 001 skincare, Ada Ooi at Fortnum & Mason’s new beauty haul. It was lovely to meet her and find out lots more behind the skincare brand. One product which stood out from her range was the Eyecicle. The Eyecicle is not a product but more a beauty device that helps to combat dark circles, wrinkles around the eyes and puffiness. Being a hayfever sufferer puffiness is a daily occurrence for me aswell as dark circles which I just seem to be prone too.

Maybelline Mastersculpt Contouring Palette

Maybelline mastersculpt contour plaette

When it comes to contouring, it can be daunting even to the professional make-up experts. Especially if you want to use one of the bigger more creamy palettes, that let’s face it look a bit like war paint. So when it came to trying out Maybelline’s new Mastersculpt Contouring Palette it was a sigh of relief as it is so easy to use and can really create a gorgeous contouring effect.

So what is contouring? Well it is a very carefully sculpted way to enhance and define your facial features, chiseled cheekbones anyone?  This 2 in 1 palette from Maybelline has a matte contouring powder on the left hand side and a sheer highlighter on the left. I really loved the powder format of these compared to cream formulas I have tried before. I think cream is perfect for a very contoured look, think Kim Kardashian and perfect to do when you are on going on an evening out with a lot more time. But the powder is perfect for every day, which is something I never really thought I would do with contouring. I really liked how the powders were matte and not shimmery, so my face didn’t end up looking like a glitterball.

Kefalonia, Greece

Tesoro Blu Hotel Palms in Kefalonia

I’m back from holiday and well feeling pretty sad I’m not still there! Kefalonia was the most beautiful island in Greece, it was so lovely and sunny, with beach trips each day and the feeling of being very chilled out was just what we both needed. I managed to read a whole book whilst I was away, something I haven’t done in a long time, it was ‘The Girl On The Train’ if you are interested and it is an amazing book, well worth a read. This of course inspired me to start my writing again of my own book as well as the laid back attitude on the island combined, I have realised I need to take a small step back from blogging – just a little of course and really concentrate on the other things I want to achieve. I also didn’t take my Nikon camera with me on holiday as I didn’t want to lug about a big camera and also to stop me blogging everything and just enjoy some actual time off. However I did take my Olympus camera to take some holiday shots for myself, but I of course couldn’t resist sharing.
