Another Day At The Races

5 comments




I spent this bank holiday at Newmarket Races with my partner and some friends. It was a great day made even better by the wonderful weather, a big difference to what it is like right now as I type on this dreary bank holiday monday :(

I previously wrote a blog post earlier this year when I went to the Grand National at Aintree. I put together a few outfits for those who were going to an event like this and struggled with what they were going to wear. 
I love getting all dressed up like this as its not often I get to do it so I completely understand how hard it can be to find the suitable outfit, especially at events like Ladies Day where it can get a bit competitive. 
As I didn't include any photos of myself at Aintree, this time I have some photos of what I chose to wear. Some of it was bought a few months a go and the shops no longer sell it, but I have tried to link them below or something very similar!

Charlotte Tilbury Cheek To Chic

Leave a Comment



I spent a few days in London a couple of weeks ago to celebrate by boyfriends birthday, and when in London I cannot resist the urge to have a little 'look' around the beauty hall inside my favourite department store that goes by the name of: Selfridges

Charlotte Tilbury is exclusive to Selfridges, so of course her shimmering makeup counter is what first caught my eye! I have been on a bit of a blush craze recently, so I was straight to swatching her 'Cheek to Chic' blushers. I love how they have a highlighter shade for your cheekbones and then a darker blush for the apples of your cheeks. They have a total of 6 different shades from bright pinks and corals to glowing golds and browns.

 I was drawn to the shade 'First Love', after hearing Victoria at Inthefrow rave about it so many times. It is a natural light coral shade that is gorgeous for everyday wear as well as in the evening. It isn't too glittery when applied which I think re-creates a more natural, youthful look to the face and doesn't leave your makeup looking too 'made up'.


I can't wait to start collecting more of these beauties, Charlotte Tilbury you have me hooked!

This product can be bought from Selfridges for £30

Long Haul Flight Essentials

Leave a Comment



Before I went away this year, I was obsessed with looking at these kind of blog posts. I loved seeing what other people took away with them in their hand luggage and also found it so helpful for when I went on holiday, especially because I was flying long haul which means I would need a lot more!

Firstly, you will obviously need your passport, you don't want to be forgetting about that! As well as other important things like your phone, purse and any travel documents. 
Next are my beats headphones, I actually took the bigger ones with me this year but seen as I couldn't find them, for photos sake I included the small earphones. These are great quality earphones perfect for in flight entertainment if you don't like using the ones the airline provides. Below that is my EOS lip balm, flights are very drying to your skin so any lip balm would be essential to moisturise your lips during the flight. 
My number one must have is my Tangle Teaser, I cannot bare to brush my hair with anything else since using these. I love my bright pink one and the fact they are compact & without a long handle means perfect for travel! I bought this from boots for £10.99.





Flights are really not good for your skin because of the cabin pressure and dry air stripping the moisture from your skin. I like to take the time on long haul flights to have a little pamper so I like to take a moisturising face mask with me. I chose Hydraluron moisture boosting mask because I love Hydraluron  products and I have heard so many good things about this mask. I remove my makeup just with wipes before I use the face sheet and leave it on for around 15 minutes, when you take it off it leaves serum still on your face so you can rub this into your skin.

After my little pamper session I don't put any heavy makeup back onto my face while on the plane, I just use a bronzer to add some definition and colour and use a mascara to open up my eyes and look more awake. The bronzer I would use would be Nars Laguna because it's a beautiful natural bronzer and has a handy big mirror in the compact. I would apply this with a Real Techniques contour brush and the mascara I used is Revlon Lash Potion.

Fluffy, comfy socks are a must for me on a flight because as soon as I get on board I like to take my shoes off, put my feet up (usually on my boyfriend) and relax. I also often get cold on flights so warm socks are essential for me. 
Lastly, I like to take some form of sweets or chocolate to snack on which I will buy at the airport.


This was all taken in my perfect hand luggage sized bag, the Speedy 30 Louis Vuitton. Available online from louisvuitton.com

EOS Lip Balms

Leave a Comment







Before I went to America, I wrote so many lists of things that I wanted to get while I was there. On one of them lists, were EOS lip balms! 
I eagerly looked around when we were driving around the streets of Orlando to try and spot a CVS pharmacy which I knew stocked these beauties. 
Incase anyone wonders, I am aware that we stock these in the UK, but they come with a much heftier price tag and don't have a big range like in the US! 
I bought 'Strawberry Sorbet' and 'Honeysuckle Honeydew' and I also bought another one for my friend which I think was Raspberry flavoured. 

EOS stands for 'Evolution of Smooth' so of course they are very soothing on the lips giving them a subtle shine and leaving their delicious scent lingering for hours! I think they are very similar to the 'Balmi' lip balms or like Maybellines Baby Lips.


Have you tried an EOS lip balm yet? I would love to know your favourite!
