Ok, I know this is technically my Sunday post that’s kind of a bit late (well three days late) but my excuse is that things have been really hectic over the past few weeks, so I’m playing catch up with everything at the moment. If only there were about six more hours in the day I’d be happy!
Well not much has been going on for me lately except work really! Fred has finally settled into school now, which is a relief. I hated leaving him there upset for the first few days. And in other news I’m off to London tomorrow for some meetings and an event, yay! I’m also hoping to plan a weekend away for the family before Christmas, so if you can recommend anywhere family friendly for me please do let me know!
this last weeks top 5 –
Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Creme (£47.00) – it’s been quite a while since I’ve tried anything from Ole Henriksen, so I was excited when Escentual asked if I fancied trying their new Invigorating Night Creme out. This luxuriously thick cream promises to re-texturise and renew your complexion overnight by balancing and brightening your skin while you sleep. The formula includes glycolic, lactic and fruit acids to deeply penetrate the epidermis, encouraging cell renewal to reveal smoother skin. As well as their Fruit Acid Complex, which is a concentrated cocktail of bilberry, sugar cane, sugar maple, orange and lemon to lightly exfoliate the skin’s surface, breaking down the bonds of dead skin cells and boosting elasticity of the skin’s surface. This Night Creme is super hydrating, and as expected it smells gorgeous too. Since I’ve started using it I’ve been waking up with fresh feeling skin every morning 🙂
Rocket Dog Stassi Saloon Boots (£59.99) – I LOVE ankle boots for Autumn, and these Stassi Boots from Rocket Dog just fit the bill for me. They’re in a pull on style, with tassel detailing on the sides and a mid-height western heel. They’re really comfortable – as I can’t actually walk in heels higher than this – and can easily be dressed up or down.
Sleek Creme To Powder Blush in Pink Peony (£5.99) – I love creme blushers, and this new offering from Sleek (one of my favourite drugstore brands) is no exception. The creme to powder formula is a beauty to blend out, whilst giving a really pretty satin finish. Pink Peony could be described as a slightly scary shade, just because it looks so intense in the pan. In reality though, with a light hand this gives a beautiful flush of colour that’s perfect to brighten any complexion for the cold season.
Arquiste – The Architect’s Club Fragrance (£135.00) – Ok I know it’s crazy expensive, but this perfume is just beautiful. I’ve just received my mini sample as part of Bloom Perfumery’s fragrance sample subscription and this is definitely one of my favourite fragrances I’ve received so far. With notes of juniper, oakwood, bigrade orange, lemon peel, amber, vanilla, angelica root and gaiac wood, this is an intense, unusual and beautiful seasonal scent.
This weeks TV of choice isn’t actually on Netflix surprisingly. The Following, on freeview channel Pick was kindly recorded for me by my other half, without me knowing. He thought it was my type of thing, and he was spot on! The Following, stars Kevin Bacon as Ryan Harding, an agent with the job of chasing down a psychotic serial-killer’s cult following. It’s a fantastic series!
In case you missed it – this little beauty is still up for grabs! This is a customised palette by Neve Cosmetics, made by yours truly. You’ll be amazed at the swatches too. Take a look and enter the giveaway here.
Current covets –
This is a new section I’ve decided to add to my weekly post, just to let you know which products I’m currently lusting after. This week I’ve had my eye on the Tom Ford Skin Illuminating Powder Duo. At £68.00 it’s definitely on the expensive side, and unfortunately I can’t justify buying it at the moment – boo! Take a look at some swatches online though and you’ll see how pretty it is!
Other things worth mentioning – And lastly, if you have a moment please take the time to check out the video below, yes it’s an advert, but it has a really important message that I think will resonate with most of us.
I hope you enjoyed my post xxx
