Date Night Makeup Look

I love going out for dinner and getting ready is all part of the experience. Me and my boyfriend decided to have a little “date night” and I always enjoy doing my hair and makeup for them. I decided to keep it fairly low key as it was still a hot summer’s day. So, I chose items like SPF and powder foundation, instead of a heavy liquid base. My skin had been quite good that day and so I didn’t want to put too much makeup on. That said, I think I have created a look that makes it seem like I have made a little more effort. I am loving the Eylure Fleur De Force Brow Launch at the moment and decided to make my brows more of a feature. I love the way that good brows can elevate an eye look and give me a little more confidence boost whilst enjoying a cheeky cocktail. I also rediscovered my gorgeous “Birthday Suit” eye palette by Tanya Burr. The shades in this are lovely and they blend really beautifully.

Lemon Polenta Cakes

We are moving home soon… I’m so excited! With that in mind I’ve been trying to use up food we have in the cupboards and I thought I would use some polenta to make little fairy cakes! I haven’t done any baking in a while but I really enjoy it when I have the time. We all deserve the occasional treat too! I got out my baking items and got started on these lemon polenta fairy cakes. The texture of them was divine with the moist lemon and crumbly polenta. You need to try these. I went all out on the lemon too and put it in the glaze AND icing. I hope you enjoy the recipe!

Let’s Talk Hair

I often get complimented on my hair and so I thought I would share with you my hair maintenance secrets. The water in London is so drying on my hair and so I have to really work hard to get some moisture into it. I don’t wash it every day as that is bad for your hair and I have developed a healthy routine to share with you below. I hope you like it and find it useful!

July 2017 Skincare Routine

You’ve seen my skincare routine for April and June so I thought I would let you know what products I’ve been loving this month. I have ditched toners as I really don’t think my skin likes them and have kept things fairly similar apart from a couple of exciting moisturising swaps.

Trying Out My Beauty #6

It’s time to discover some new gems in my beauty stash and this month I’ve picked out some great little options. I love going through my beauty products and seeing what I can trial out. It’s also great using up things that I’d forgotten I owned and although a lot of the things I find are miniatures, I get equal excitement out of using them all!
