BLOG SALE: New August Updates | Fashion & Beauty

Hello! No 'proper' blog post today as I'm spending this time writing and planning, but I just wanted to mention I've uploaded a new blog sale! As always, it's huge and and I've been super ruthless so there's some really lovely clothes that I love, but just don't have time to wear, in there! The majority is Topshop, Zara, H&M, River Island, ASOS etc with lots of shoes from Topshop and even Vivienne Westwood for Melissa.

I've also added 30+ beauty items from the infamous Pixi Glow Tonic to Clarins, Elemental Herbology, The Body Shop, Antipodes, Origins and lots more. There's even some NEOM candles and other products in there too. Lots of products are RRP £30+ and are down for £15 or less including postage. Bargains, people.

I can ship internationally, please email me to ask for the cost. All prices include postage unless otherwise stated and payments are expected as quickly as you can send 'em over. I'd really love to sell the majority of these items, as I do need the cash, so any tweets or help sharing my blog sale link would be much appreciated!

Enough chat, CLICK HERE TO SHOP THE BLOG SALE! Ends 03/09.

BEAUTY: Makeup Favourites #2


There seems to be a soft, pink colour theme going on here (until you get to the NARS pencils, of course), but they're the colours I've been leaning towards recently. I've been testing out some new things (mostly RMK -  I adore their Creamy Foundation and Recovery Gel so couldn't resist trying more!), so thought I'd share as they've found their way into my favourites list after only a few weeks!

Starting with my base, I've been using the RMK Colour Control UV SPF 30 (in 02 - pink) which is a colour correcting primer. As someone with a bit of a yellow undertone, I like using pink based products to counteract it, as it makes for more of a neutral base. This pink toned one makes skin look so even and is just a great all round primer - the SPF 30 is a great bonus too! For my foundation, I've been using the only 'drugstore' foundation I like, which is the Revlon ColourStay Foundation. It's got amazing coverage and is so long lasting, one I keep coming back to when I want a smooth finish.

I've also been loving the RMK Creamy Sheer Cheek Powder (in 02 pink beige), which gives a subtle wash of colour to the cheeks, or can be built up for a stronger look. It's has a bit more of a sheen than I'm used to, but find it's beautifully highlighting and flattering. To finish off my base, I dust over some RMK Translucent Face Powder (in Pearl), which gives the skin a natural, satin finish and doesn't look cakey at all - which is such an important thing for me, especially under my eyes!

On my eyes, I've been loving MAC Paint Pot in Vintage Selection, as it's the most beautiful soft-pink champagne colour. NARS Lip Pencils have been pretty much all I've been wearing recently, so the NARS Lip Pencil in Lohdi (a bright coral) and NARS Lip Pencil in Luxembourg (a hot blue-toned pink) have been in my handbag constantly. I love the contrast of a soft eye and blush, with a strong lip!
