Good afternoon everyone and happy Wednesday. It’s time for this month’s favourites. I can’t believe how quickly this month has gone. I will be back in the full swing of teaching in no time at all! As always, some items mentioned in this blog post are gifted and will be marked with a *
Let’s start with a couple of beauty products and a new moisturiser from Dermalogica*.
I am not wearing my mask as frequently as I was before my second vaccine so I am now wearing lipstick again! I found this liner and lipstick on Amazon from KIKO for great affordable prices and I love the shades for autumn. This is their ‘Smart Fusion Lipstick’ in shade 405 and the liner is shade 303. The liner is a little darker than the lipstick so you do have to make sure you blend it in with a gloss or a balm. They last well on your lips and I love the darker shade for the colder months to come.
Dermalogica kindly sent me their new product as a #skinfluener and I have been using it for a week or so now. Their new ‘Biolumin C-Gel Moisturizer’ does exactly what it says it does. On the first application, my skin looked radiant, glowing and felt amazing. I mix a drop into my tinted cc serum as part of my daily makeup routine too which gives me that weightless glowy base. I am really going to enjoy using this in autumn to maintain that holiday-like glowing skin.
Over the summer holidays I have really let me nails grow out as during term time I normally completely neglect them! I found some really gorgeous floral stickers on Amazon which you apply using tweezers and seal with a clear topcoat. I always put on a nail strengthener before I do anything else and this helps encourage growth and prevents breakage. I used the cherry blossom stickers for this manicure but there are so many to choose from in the pack I picked up – sunflowers, purple flowers, black and white flowers. It does take a bit of time and patience let me tell you but my nails feel fresh and it’s just a bit of fun.
Next up are some new additions to the master bedroom. I was so lucky to work with two beautiful interiors brands this month – Cotswold Grey* and Champagne & Ginger*. I was gifted this elm stool and blue cashmere throw from Cotswold Grey and then these belly baskets from Champagne & Ginger. They work so well together and make our bedroom feel cosy and ready for the new season.
Finally, I wanted to mention ‘The Midnight Library’ again by Matt Haig. It has been such a joy to read and I couldn’t recommend it more. If you haven’t read it, you need to!
Have a lovely day guys and I’ll be back on the blog next week with an autumn fashion post so turn on email notifications if you don’t want to miss that.
