Beauty buys

I haven’t blogged for a little while, I’m sorry to say. I have been so busy with work and things so its been tricky to find the time. But, I’m well and truly back to it! Promise.

I thought it would be good to share my most recent favourite beauty purchases.

Firstly, I found this gloss and shine product by Tony and Guy, I have never tried any of their products or had my hair cut with them before so I am only going on hearsay. I’m usually a committed frizz ease customer. I use it as an attempt to make my often, frazzled split ends soft and silky. At nearly £1 cheaper (I know, bargain!) I thought I’d give Tony and Guy a go.

I’m getting on with it quite well. I prefer the smell of the frizz ease one but this is much lighter and it seems to last the whole day without building up, keeping a nice shine all day.

The next one is this nail varnish by Rimmel, colour black cherries. It is a great alternative to a black. that can sometimes be quite harsh. It also picks up on the metallic trends going around at the moment.
I find it perfect with creams and whites. I bought a new cream quilted sweater (I will blog about in the next few days) which I wore with my freshly painted nails today. I think the colour contrast is perfect and adds a subtle pop of colour in a really subtle, soft way. I also love love love the fact that these dry in 60secs! It’s a must have!

Lastly, is the latest addition to my lipstick family. Again, it’s another beauty from our friends at Rimmel.

Even the name is perfection…tantrum.
I was looking for a deep red lipstick, that still has a pinky tone as I find my complexion best suits the pinker tones. I find it is far less harsh. This one lasts almost the entire day, which is amazing as I almost always have to constantly top up with other brands I’ve tried.

Bank holiday sun

It WAS sunny and will be again on Friday apparently, sadly until then we will have a week of rain…bummer but at least the bank holiday was nice. What did you all get up to?
I went for a picnic with my friend which was sooo lovely. I actually got sunburnt, I think only the Brits are capable of getting sunburnt in 15 degree heat.

I am a major fan of the pyjama trouser At the moment. They are the most comfy things you will ever wear and are perfect for this sporadic weather we’re having. These ones are by Markus Lupfher for Whistles. I wore them with a simple block colour crop top, as I think you need to go for something simple with a pattern as bright as the hearts on these trousers. I’m always a bit sceptical of crop tops but this one, I’m not ashamed to say, was inspired by a look i saw rihanna wearing. I got it for £2!!! from Primark so thought I’d join in with the cropped thing.
