For some reason the internet has had a intense romance with everything that is unicorn related – from Cafe’s in Bangkok to purses and bags brought to you by skinny dip. I never really understood the craze until I swiped this beaut of a highlighter on my cheekbones…
Tis the season to say goodbye to bright summer shades and hello to my two favourites: burgundy and hunter green. At the end of November I plan to revamp my wardrobe and fill it with classic greys, beige and black pieces to keep me going in the Winter but in the meantime I’m stocking up on some more affordable, seasonal additions. From hair shade to sunglasses, below are a few of my favourite autumn/winter style changes.
I mean I use the word summer very loosely obviously living in England but hey – maybe that’s why I’m just wishing Autumn along already. This limbo is a tad tiresome and I can’t help but long for boots, coats, scarves and chestnut latte’s already. Ah a girl can dream! Anyway I digress. Kylie Jenner made this kinda shade popular but I’ve always loved a burnt brown lip for a warm beauty look.
My first ever MAC product graced my teen make up bag back in 2004 (oh god it’s been a decade). A friend’s mum saw my love for her lippie and treated me with a trip to the MAC (department store) counter back home to get something conservative for this young beauty enthusiast. Of course I went with a dupe for Star Nova – a pearlescent, mauve. This was back when the lipglosses were in squeeze tubes. Le sigh…
A few products have been sitting on my desk for a little too long lately so I thought I’d make a point of sharing my desk side essentials.
Whilst hard at work I feel like there’s always a place for a nice candle. During the day I’m burning Hobnail Waterlilly candle from Chapters Indigo it’s so clean and fresh and makes a clean apartment feel like bliss.
Also on hand is my adorable “Be Happy” notebook from Chapters. Sometimes we all need a reminder and I still feel like there’s always a place fro handwritten lists and notes, don’t you? For touch up’s YSL’s Rouge Volupte Lipstick in Peach Passion.
We all know I like to spend a pretty penny on Diptyque candles but after my Christmas haul I thought it best to burn the last of my minis (Tubereuse) during these summer nights.
My Milk BKR from Blossom Lounge holds a firm place on my desk. It matches the white decor and forces me to stay hydrated while I work.
I recently received Essie’s Summer 2014 Collection, Haute in the Heat and I’m keeping them close by in case I need a quick touch up before an event. Naturally I have nail polish remover close at hand too 😉
BKR obsessed. My boss makes fun of me for it. Kitten (baby pink) has always been by my MAC’s side but in th elast couple of weeks I welcomed Boy (baby blue) and Chip (Mint green). Now I have no reason not to be hydrated this summer, right? These beauties are all available at Blossom Lounge.
