beauty: smashbox photo finish hydrating primer review

It's been a while since I've done a beauty-related post but it's definitely something I want to get into, so here goes!

While I'm by no means a beauty expert - I'm very much still learning as I go - it's a world I love discovering. I find so much comfort in carefully painting on eyeliner and applying a layer of lipstick. I looove reading beauty blogs and finding new products to try (though it's not so great for my bank balance...).

Primer is something I've only started using this year, however the main issue I've had with the ones I'd tried was that while they mattified my skin, they also dried it out; leaving my complexion dull and far from radiant. My skin is combination, with a tendency towards dryness anyway so I knew I'd need something that would give me a little moisture boost.

outfit idea #25 - name that tune

Name that tune




Leather boots are the last things anyone wants to be looking at in a heatwave, I know - but I simply couldn't resist these. In case you couldn't already tell, I think I'm ready for autumn to be here now (I'm tired of melting in the heat).

This dress is down to a mere £13 - suuuuper cute and perfect for both summer and winter would you not agree?

life in photos #24: travel → paris, france (a lot of pretty photos)

Weekend before last I found myself in the city of lights itself; Paris! Although I was there for work experience, I did find some time to fit in a bit of exploring.

Admittedly I have a bit of a love/hate relationship for the city; whilst it's undeniably beautiful, I do find it has its fair share of shady parts. But then what city doesn't?!

One thing I always find myself marvelling in Paris is the architecture. Someday I hope to be sipping tea from one of those ornate balconies (whilst dressed head to toe in vintage Chanel, of course).

Special shoutout to Three mobile for introducing their 'Feel At Home Plan' the week before I left, meaning I could enjoy my unlimited data plan abroad for absolutely nothing (!!!) - and thus Instagram the hell out of everything. Trés bien indeed.
