Today’s post is going to be short and sweet as there is an accompanying video to this post but it is currently gluing itself together.. or something? I’m not really sure but there’s a long loading bar and it’s taking it’s sweet time to load that’s for sure.
Another niggle today is the fact that apparently Luvocracy just wasn’t made for Mac. I thought I was being clever organising my favourites into one simple collection for you but that’s not going to work… (believe me I’ve spent the last hour trying to make it do just that!).
Anyyyyyyway – I thought I’d go back to the old-fashioned of doing it and give you to the links to each individual item. If you want to hear me speil on about all them, stay tuned tomorrow!
Naked Care Mild Shampoo
Soap and Glory Butter Yourself Moisture Lotion
Revlon PhotoReady BB Cream
Dr Organic Dead Sea Mineral Eye Rescue Rollerball
NARS Laguna Bronzer
Eyeko Eye Do Mascara
Kevyn Aucoin The Precision Eyebrow Pencil
Non Beauty Items:
John Grisham – The Testament
Vivienne Westwood Foggy Tweed Long Coat (picture only)
I hope you enjoy the video!

It seems that every time I come to writing a post nowadays I always have to start it with an apology! My organisation seems to have suffered with shorter daylight hours and feeling the need to go to bed impossibly early. Don’t you think there’s something so depressing about walking out of work at 6’o’clock and it being pitch black?! Sometimes England just… Sucks!
A few things to catch up on:
– I have an exciting collab with Veronica coming up!
– I have a few videos planned and a block of 4 hours dedicated to deducing the editing software on my computer! Hurrah!
Catch-up over and I have a few questions to ask you: with Halloween fast approaching and Trick-Or-Treaters the world over preparing costumes; would you like to see a few “How-To” posts on some easy Halloween make-up? If yes – give me a request of what you’d like to see and I will make it so!
Now a few speculations for the make-up trends to hit this winter:
– With the current “Cara” love-in going on I think it’s safe to say that bold brows are here to stay (poet and I don’t know it?!). If you want to know how to create a set of brows worthy of Miss Delevinge herself check out my “How-To” video here.
– A big hit for Winter is always a bold lip look – this year it’s all about the wine shades. Don’t think this is an excuse for foundation lips – we’re talking Bordeaux not Sauvignon Blanc! For a can’t-go-wrong look dab the lipstick from bullet to finger to pout and build the colour. Correct any mistakes with a q-tip and remember to blot to keep it bang on trend.
– As we head into party season it’s time to crack out those glitter pots that hang around in the back of every gals make-up drawer. Make like Marc Jacobs and apply in a cat-eye shape for the ultimate glam factor (remember to shield your cheeks with some tissue or you’ll end up with you eye look all over your face!).
A miscellaneous post today but I hope you enjoyed reading it regardless. Keep your eyes peeled for that collaboration and if you enjoyed this post please take the time to press the “follow” button – it really does make my day!

I would say “it’s that time of the month again” but 1. That could be taken the wrong way and 2. I’m 4 days late writing this post! I was debating on writing it at all as when I was digging around in my stash I could only find a very small number of products that I really went crazy for this month. However, I feel like these select few products need to have their praises sung a little more, so (luckily for you!) this post is up and running!
First up: Accessories. I’ve been really loving these fingertip rings from New Look. I’m not certain whether they still have these ones in stock but a lot of high street stores do them so it’s definitely worth a look. I just think they bring a little more panache to an outfit.
My other favourite accessory of the month was the Time-Turner my mum bought me. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you will know I’m Harry Potter mad, so this Time-Turner was the perfect gift for me! It’s such a unique and interesting piece and gives an outfit just that little something extra.
On to all things beauty related…
Bioderma Sebium Pore Refiner – does exactly what it says on the tin. Smooths skin and also smells delicious!
Soap and Glory Clean on Me Body Wash – smells the same as “Miss Dior” i.e. absolutely divine! It has body lotion in it so that’s one neglected step in my beauty routine that I don’t have to worry about. It lathers up into a soft, thick foam and feels really luxurious on the skin.
Clinique “all about the eyes” Eye Cream – this is a heavy duty eye cream so not ideal for the mornings however at night this is so wonderful. I really feel like it hydrates my under eye area and is working towards preventing crows feet and the like.
By Terry Baume de Rose – I suffer from really dry lips during the Winter so I wanted to find something to get them in tip-top condition beforehand and that was nourishing enough to use in the colder months, too. This lip balm might cost an arm and a leg but truly, it is a miracle worker. I had a sample of this and was so impressed, but the price tag was making me slightly weak at the knees… BUT two days of not using it and I just knew I had to make it a permanent home in my make-up draw. It’s just too good to live without.
VO5 Smoothly Does It – I have used this, without fail, every single damn day this month. Nuff said. Buy it, you won’t regret it.
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this post and also that you have a lovely September! If you’re new to my blog, it would make my day if you would hit the “Follow” button!
