BEAUTY: Bobbi Brown Makeup Favourites


Despite using the brand for a while, I would still say I'm fairly new to Bobbi Brown as a whole. There's so many products I haven't tried yet but I'm slowly but surely building up my collection. I had a John Lewis voucher to spend, so I headed over to the counter to have a browse on Saturday and walked away with two new bits - which made me realise I really do adore BB so thought I'd share a post on the pieces I adore using!

Lips and cheeks are definitely a prominent part of my Bobbi Brown collection. With such a wide range available, there really is something for everyone whether you like bold looks or soft, subtle tones. For lips I really adore the Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Colour (in Calypso and Red Carpet, as seen above) as they're so long lasting, pigmented and don't dry out the lips. I also like the Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Colour, as it offers a satin finish which looks absolutely beautiful on, I bought the shade Watermelon (as seen in this haul) and it's the most perfect shade!

The Bobbi Brown Art Stick was one of my new purchases, but I love the chunky pencil style and the creamy, pigmented colour. I picked up the shade Electric Pink, as I wanted something bright and it's so, so pretty!

For cheeks, I've had a long term affair with the Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks, despite only owning two shades. The shade Pale Pink, above, gives such a nice natural look to the cheeks and I find the cream formula stays around all day too! Along with the art stick, I got the Bobbi Brown Blush in Rose, which, as you can image, is a subtle pretty rose shade.

Finally, for eyes I really rate the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Sticks. I have the shades Golden Bronze and Goldstone above and they're so metallic, almost looking foil-like and blend so well. I love using them alone or as a base for a smokey eye!

I'm dying to try more from the brand - do you have any recommendations?

WISHLIST: August Wishin'


I seem to have accidentally developed a grey and white theme here, but it might be my subconscious trying to hang on to the last bits of summer dressing with light colours. Is anyone feeling ready for Autumn with the sun going away for the past week? It's been a bit cold and grim and I haven't been feelin' it at all, it's making me want coats and boots and layers ASAP. So, lets run through the things I'm aiming to fill my wardrobe with this month...

Obsessed with //  loose fit high neck jumpers, light grey and white, floaty dresses, finding the perfect hat, velvet chelsea boots, skinny jeans and oversized shirts, silver everything, snake print footwear, grid print, pretty lace bras and dungarees.

What are you feelin' this month?

TODAY: Blog Sale!


It's that time again, folks. Where I freak out and edit down a big chunk of my wardrobe because I'm evidently either a borderline hoarder and buy too much in the first place, or I change my mind too often to keep clothes for long. Probably a bit of both, to be honest. That and I'm moving into a one bedroom flat which means I'll no longer have an entire room for my clothes! Eek etc.

So, I'm passing on the barely worn (and often brand new) offers to you! I've listed a bunch of my clothes, bags and shoes on my blog sale, which includes two Michael Kors bags.

I desperately need everything to go, so please do check out my blog sale or share it with anyone who may be after a style bargain! Much appreciated!
