Mid-Year Beauty Round Up: Make Up & Skincare Favourites


Rounding up the best in beauty has become a bit of a yearly thing now and I usually dedicate the first few days of January to trolling through a years worth of monthly favourite videos (see the playlist here if you fancy doing the same!) in order to pick out the best of the best from the whole twelve months. As we've just reached August though (can you believe it!?) I thought I'd revisit the same format of video but look back at how things have changed over the last six months. Not surprisingly, quite a few things have remained the same, but I've also discovered some new life-long favourites and changed my mind about a few old ones!

New Skincare Additions


Let's talk about skincare! I've cemented myself a pretty solid routine of products that I love and work for me, but there's always room to try something a little different and pop in a few more summer appropriate products - aka, things that parent me from melting in the heat. From SPF to a super refreshing toning spray - there's a lot of new things I've been testing out, so grab a cuppa' and enjoy!

Packing For a Week in L.A.!


The wait is finally over and the trip to L.A. I've been talking about for so long is here! Next week I'll be boarding a plane in preparation for and eleven hour flight (gulp) and by Wednesday afternoon I'll be setting foot in the U.S. for the first time! Facing the task of packing for a week away in a climate a whole lot warmer than my usual was quite the daunting task, but I've broken it down into some easier to swallow chunks that have not only made the process a little less overwhelming for myself, but may come in handy for any others struggling to pack for a trip away!

What's In My Bag: Whistle Fleet Tote


What's In My Bag videos are not only my favourite to watch but also to film and this one actually marks the fifth instalment of rummaging around in the depths of my handbag! I try to make one every time a new bag comes in to my life, and this thing of beauty - a.k.a. the Blue Fleet Tote from Whistles, is certainly one of my favourites to date. You know the drill by now, I go through the contents of my bag from the useful (purse, phone charger, sunglasses) to the not so necessary (more lip products than I can count on one hand..) and in the process wonder how on earth my arm hasn't fallen off from carrying around so much on a daily basis!
