making up!

Or what's in my make-up box. I'm pretty kinda of basic when it comes to make-up. I wear make-up everyday and wouldn't be seen without it (I'd scare small children!) but I've been doing the same old thing for years and I knew it was time to do a bit of an update. Cue an afternoon well spent in the company of a bonafide make-up artist Chanelle. I took along my own meagre collection of products so that I could pick Chanelle's brains about new products and how to use what I already have to the best effect.

in snood mood!

One of my A/W signatures. I love a good snood. You just stick one on and forget about it. Job done. I have a grey one and I have to say that most days it completes my outfit. Yesterday I needed something to pull my ensemble together....it really does work with everything.

i'm no beauty expert but.......

these are a few of my favourite things. I do love trying new stuff! I'm a pretty low maintenance/basic skincare kinda gal! When I discovered Caroline Hirons a couple of years back I picked up a tip that literally revolutionised my morning and evening routine, I'm now a double cleanse/hot cloth devotee and still often refer back to CH's cheat sheets. This in turn has made a lot more receptive to trying out new treatments. I recently jumped at the chance to try out some Glamglow products as I'd heard such raving reviews about their masks. I have not been disappointed! Their YouthMud tinglexfoliate treatment is amazing. It does in fact make your skin tingle. You spread it over your visage and it harden as it drys. You remove it after about 10 minutes, I did so with a hot flannel. My face felt refreshed and zingy. The next morning my skin felt firmer and my make-up went on more smoothly! I'm sold......I'll warn you....you could become addicted!!

autumn updates!

Just an update on a few wardrobe acquisitions.....I've been a bit tardy on the blogging front of late as I haven't been feeling all that inspired recently. I've been trying to steer clear of the Insta-famous purchases however I have succumbed to this gorgeous Warehouse teddy coat. It's a trend piece for me and likely to be a bit of a one season wonder but I did think it would make a great wardrobe updater especially as I am favouring the neutral tans, camel and beiges at the moment. I'm about to have a huge coat cull as there are a few in my wardrobe that I've just become bored of....this coat will breathe some new life into my winter outfits.....and it's a bit of fun.
