My Favourite Facial Cleansing Products

When it comes to my skin care routine, the part I find most satisfying and look forward to the most (yes I look forward to my skin care routine!) is cleansing my face! I find it so satisfying, getting to see and feel instant results is so enjoyable. Admittedly I am slightly obsessed, I have a bathroom cupboard just dedicated to cleansing skincare products, but with having combination skin that can sometimes be a lot drier, or a lot oilier, or a lot more hormonal, I have different cleansing products that work better for me depending on what my skin is doing. I have 6 standout products, products that I feel are absolute gems and are staples for me with my skin care. I'll try to keep it short and sweet on the key benefits of each product, if you're a cleansing addict like me or are just in the market for something new, I hope this can provide some product inspiration!

Staycation Love | The Cotswolds

I spent a few days last week relaxing with my lovely boyfriend in a beautiful part of the country, The Cotswolds. We both had some time off from work and initially we were going to use it to go abroad for a few days, but we’re currently saving up for a big trip to America early next year so we decided to save our pennies and go and stay with family in a lovely little village in The Cotswolds. We had 4 days of absolute peace and quiet, no public transport (!), no crazy commuters, no busy bustling streets, just fresh country air and big green fields! It was honestly the most relaxing time and I wanted to share a few highlights of the trip with you, including a farm visit, thunderstorms and candle lit evenings snuggled up on the sofa reading books, playing board games and watching movies.

Rogue Eyes For Autumn

When I first saw the Quadra Eyeshadow Palette in Candeur et Experience from the 2016 Chanel Fall Collection, Le Rouge, I was besotted. Chanel have released the most Autumnal inspired makeup collection with the new Global Creative Makeup and Colour Designer, Lucia Pica. It's no doubt that Lucia is a big big fan of the colour red, injecting red hues all throughout the collection, making it one of the best Autumn makeup collections I have seen in such a long time. The deep reds, the orange tones, the edgier darker rogue shades, they all contribute to a more sexier, sultry makeup collection, something daring for Chanel, and something daring for those of us out there wanting to revamp our makeup for Autumn and Winter.

A Scent To Confuse The Senses | Diptyque Eau des Sens

The Diptyque fragrances are something ever so special and unique. Each perfume and fragrance smells so different to anything else I’ve ever smelt, which I think is such a special thing to be able to do, create bespoke unique fragrances, that in my opinion have completely their own identity, pulling nothing from any other fragrance from any other brand. It’s the unique quality of the Diptyque fragrances that I absolutely love, it makes them feel so special. I've lusted after them for so long now and I finally decided to take the plunge and purchase one on a Space NK Shopping trip with my mum a few months ago. It stayed in its box for a while, waiting for summer to appear, for it to be able to show off in all its glory, and since June it has been all I've worn perfume wise. It's one of the most stunning scents I've ever smelt, I'm truley obsessed with it. As Summer draws to a close and I welcome Autumn with open arms, I don't feel ready to put this fragrance away just yet.

My Top Two Autumn Lipsticks

Hello September, where did you come from? It feels like this year is just flying by and before we know it we'll be celebrating Christmas and welcoming in another new year! Before I get ahead of myself and start getting exciting about December, there’s a lot that excite me about September, the change of season as we go in to Autumn, or Fall if you prefer the American terminology (I personally love both), not only brings a wardrobe change but also a makeup change. I love getting to change my makeup to match the season and I am seriously looking forward to wearing two of my all-time favourite lipsticks from Burberry.
