February Favourites

I get tired of saying this nearly every month, but February really has flown by. Spring is definitely in the air and I'm finally starting to shake that Winter feeling that's been with me since Christmas. The (ever so slightly) warmer weather is not only brightening my mood, but it's also increased my productivity levels - hopefully you should be seeing at least two videos a week from me in March, woo!

Back to February though and as with last month's favourites I've kept things short and sweet with just a handful of the best products that have been making their way into my beauty routine on a daily basis, including a set of beautiful rose gold brushes that won't break the bank, a few Spring launches that I've been devouring and a budget micellar water that may just live up to the likes of Bioderma!

Hair Chat: Favourite Products & Styling Routine

An updated hair routine has been long overdue for some time now, as not only have my cut and colour changed dramatically from the last instalment, but my styling process too. I've stripped down the amount of products I was using and now stick to the key items that generally revolve the big four - shampoo, conditioner, a treatment and one styling product, and honestly my hair's never been happier. I've also thrown in a little how-to using the GHD Curve Classic Wave Wand - my new favourite heat tool, which is the closest thing I've ever found to achieving the tousled, Olsen-esque locks that I've always dreamt of!

Topshop, Asos & Missguided Haul

Over the last few weeks I've been giving my wardrobe a bit of an overhaul and after accumulating quite a few new items - from basics to one rather large investment piece, a haul was definitely in order! February is always an awkward month for style. The weather is still bitterly cold making layers and thick knits a necessity but with Spring just around the corner it's hard not to find yourself yearning for bright colours, sheer materials and lighter coats. Today's haul is the best of both with Winter staples contributing to the bulk of my picks but a few warm weather appropriate pieces making an appearance too!

A Little Trip to Paris

Last week ended up being a complete whirlwind that I'm still getting over, but a very fun one indeed. On Monday morning before the sun had barely even risen Suzie, Lucy, Tijan and I were whisked away to Paris for the day with the French beauty subscription box service, My Little Box. We were invited along for a tour of the office and after a quick sit down for brunch and a fierce instagramming session we had a good nose around their beautiful space which, if I had to describe in just one word would be utterly 'Pinterestable'.

From one food stop to the next we headed over to Buvette in the ninth arrondissement were I indulged in a plate of Croque-Forestier, a melt in the mouth cheese, bread and mushroom explosion that I won't be forgetting in a while. Afterwards we made a stop at Oh My Cream, a gorgeous beauty boutique dedicated entirely to skincare with the likes of Sunday Riley, Antipodes, REN and Aurelia lining the shelves. We had a workshop session on devising the perfect routine - aka an hour of trying out as many products as possible that I'd always wanted to get my hands on, and all left with a very big mental shopping list.

Our last hour in the city was spent doing a quick run of the pharmacies - no time to stop off as Sephora this time around unfortunately but I did manage to stock up on a year's worth of Bioderma! Before I knew it we were heading back to Le Gare du Nord and hopping on the train to London again. It was a fleeting visit but a very special one and I also vlogged the day - see below! Paris, you were beautiful as always and I miss you already!

January Favourites

Twelve months worth of favourites videos have been and gone and now we're back to square one with the first edition of 2015 and my January beauty loves. January wasn't the most exciting month for make up - I could probably count the number of times I went out of the house with a full face on two hands, but I still managed to pick out a some gems from the last few weeks, including an oh-so covetable brush that I've been dying to try and a new fragrance love!
