Keeping Makeup Fresh in the Heat.

2 July, 2015

Keeping my makeup on in the sun was something I used to really struggle with, my skin suddenly becomes super oily and just slick. It’s grim, you guys. Grim. Luckily, I have quite the routine to keep me glow-y… and not sweaty. I always apply a good SPF, and I thought I would include that here just because I don’t often mention that sort of thing on these pages. I really like the Benefit Dream Screen SPF 45 (£25), it’s…

July Goals.

1 July, 2015

July, you came around way too quickly. I shouldn’t be complaining, July is pretty much my favourite month because sun. I’ve been super busy lately, I’m relaunching the Nouvelle website and the stationery shop to go alongside it.

I bought a huge bunch of peonies from Debenhams this week, as Annabel has a 25% off code on her blog, and also picked up a few cheaper bunches of £4 peonies from Asda (lasted way longer), and some Sweet Williams too. I always…

June Favourites.

28 June, 2015

I can’t believe July is just a few days away… right now I’m wearing a jumper and thick socks and I can hear big spatters of rain hitting the window. A true Scottish summer. Perhaps my summery roundup can brighten things up a little… If there’s one thing I owe my happy, clear complexion to, it’s the Aesop Fabulous Face Oil (£40), this stuff is amazing! I said a while ago that I had really stripped back my skincare routine, and…
