Sunday I went on a little shopping trip, I didn’t come away with much in the way of clothing but I did grab a couple of bits I’ve been wanting for a while so I thought I’d share them with you…
Because everybody has their monthly magazine subscription.
I’ve been wanting a better concealer for a while – to my upmost annoyance the bags under my eyes never disappear, no matter how hard I try, so like many I’ve been watching youtube video after video trying to find the one for me. After spending a while trawling through the internet I’ve figured out that when it comes down to it, Benefit are affordable and pretty good at what they do. As I’m quite pale shade no.2 was the one I went for, I hear that as the texture is seriously creamy you can apply it with just about anything but I’ve been using the little Real Techniques sponge which works really well for me. It says flawless coverage and it’s pretty true to its word.
I just can’t deny myself a funky pair of earrings. Who can?
If you didn’t already know – I have a massive head. Therefore I’ve long accepted that my old straw hat is just too tight for this lovely weather so I decided to buy myself a new one. I love hats in general but especially big floppy ones like this from Accessorise which will pair perfectly with linen shorts, tees and summer dresses.
Side note – I’m a big believer in protecting your skin from the sun, skin cancer and leather like skin just isn’t worth it in my book – it’s important to wear suncream and protect the rest of your body but the skin on your face is far more delicate, meaning hats are pretty important as they add a little bit more protection.
