WEAR LIFE EATS

WEAR //
Scary, I know. This week I tried out the Sarah Chapman 3D Moisture Infusion mask and despite my bad track record with sheet masks I actually really enjoyed this one. It fit well onto my face and did exactly what it says on the tin, "hydrates, plumps and soothes". These are available from this month and will be £39 for a pack of 4. My tip? Warn your boyfriend before walking back into the bedroom, I nearly gave mine a heart attack.

LIFE //
You may have already heard about my little trip at the end of this month, but if you missed my announcement, me and Anna are going to Milan! We're going to be attending Itatube and will also be there for a bit of time before and after to enjoy Milan (and all the yummy food!). We'd love to meet some of you at Itatube and maybe we'll do a little meetup outside too? Follow us on Twitter to keep up to date and find out more about Itatube and info on who else will be there.

EATS //
You know when you walk past a restaurant a million times and never get to actually go? Well I finally went to mine. East Street is a Fresh Pan Asian market-style restaurant in Central London on Rathbone Place (just by Tottenham Court Road). It combines meals from Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, Japan and Korea. The interior reminded me so much of Thailand with the plastic baskets on the table filled with sauce and the neon lights and stacked shelves. I went for the bargain lunch meal deal and had a Pad Thai and Summer Rolls. It was absolutely amazing and I can't wait to go back and try more dishes. I'd 100% recommend you go if you're in Central London. It's a place I reckon not many people know is there, but it's a gem and something completely different from a boring sandwich shop. 

Have a lovely bank holiday weekend if you're in the UK! Lets cross our fingers for sunshine.

STRESSED BUT WELL DRESSED

Friday, 18 April 2014


Last week I spent one full in day in central London. I had a few meetings and I also had a drink with Niomi which was so lovely - babe alert! I knew the weather would be nice so I wanted to dress a bit Spring-like... I may have gone a bit overboard. When I put the outfit together I thought it was way too over the top but then I just decided, what the heck, do I really care?!

I'm still so in love with my Zara clutch bag and I managed to fit everything I needed for the day inside including my Canon EOSM camera - amazing! I'm glad I picked up the white Leigh Topshop jeans in the end because I think I'll wear them a lot this Summer. My shirt is from Zara quite recently and I like the two tone effect. I think it's another option for those of us who like the cropped top look but wouldn't dare actually wear one. It gives a cropped effect but is also just a comfortable long, loose shirt. The nail polish is Models Own Beach Bag, which I raved about here, the sunnies are Ray Ban and my shoes are the mono white Converse

So what do you think? Chic or too over the top?

DO YOU CO-WASH?


I mentioned the new Ojon conditioner in my March favourites video but somehow it slipped through the blog post net. I've been using this all month and I'm nearly all out, but I'm aware that I'm using it wrong... 

The Rare Blend Moisture-Rich Cleansing Conditioner (available from 16th April) was actually created to be used for co-washing. What's co-washing you ask? It's a new way of washing your hair that gives you healthier locks by using less harsh shampoos. The idea is to use this cleansing conditioner alone for every other wash. It is supposed to cleanse and condition all in one and I agree, it does do that. The thing with my hair though is that I usually wait until it's really greasy to wash it and by that point I need a serious shampoo session to make it feel clean. 

I have however been using this as my conditioner after shampooing and it is amazing. There's something about it (probably the coconut and ojon oil ingredients) that leaves my hair feeling incredibly clean but also so so soft. My hair has never felt healthier so this one has gone straight to the top of my recommendation list! 

For those of you who wash your hair more regularly this is a great way to give your hair a break from harsh shampoos whilst still having a fresh, clean finish when you're done. 

So have you tried co-washing yet?

10 THINGS TO TRY IN SUPERDRUG

Wednesday, 16 April 2014


Following on from yesterday's post on my top 10 things to try in Space NK, today I'm taking it down notch and talking about the more affordable buys available in Superdrug. It's impossible to get it down to my top 10, but I've given it a go by just writing down the first 10 that spring to mind. 

A recent discovery that I wrote about in this post and compared to the Chanel Christmas palette. It has a great selection of wearable shades and it's a complete bargain! 

Finally Tanya's range has launched in stores which is really exciting. I'd definitely recommend checking out the lip glosses if your local store stocks them. 

This always pops up when I talk about cream blushers as it's such a great one! The packaging is cheap and really unglamorous but the formula is spot on. You can pat it onto the cheek easily, it leaves a beautiful flush of colour and works really well for the Summer. 

If you like easy to wear, moisturising lipsticks then these will be right up your street! My two favourite shades? In Love with Ginger and Notting Hill Nude. 

I couldn't live without this little pink pot, it's genius! You simply dip your finger in and it swipes off all of your nail polish without having to faff about with cotton wool. I go through these very regularly. 

L'OREAL INFALLIBLE EYESHADOWS // 
The idea of loose pigments does my head in, but these pressed pigment shadows are so amazing. You hardly need any product on the brush and colour payoff is insane! I don't think I'll ever make a dent in them.

It looks like a lipgloss but it's actually a liquid eyeshadow and it works great as a base before powder shadows or just by itself. I think this wins the award for longest lasting shadow in my collection! 

Another new favourite of mine and a great dupe for Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk. It's not too glowy but still looks really skin-like. 

MAYBELLINE THE FALSIES MASCARA // link
It was tough to pick between this and The Rocket, but both are really great mascaras for giving length and volume with a super black finish. 

BARRY M GELLY NAIL POLISH // link
You've heard me talking about these hundreds of times. Long lasting, gel finish and they come in some great shades! 


Happy shopping!
