Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation - £13.49
A few years ago I was incredibly loyal to a few select products. In between then and now I've become a bit of a product-floozy, constantly flitting between different things and I can't say that I haven't had a lot of fun, but I think that I want to go back to having a few things that I completely adore rather than lots of things I think are okay.
The Lily Lolo foundation has been a favourite of mine for a long time. A couple of light layers buffed gently over my skin after applying a good moisturiser and a little bit of concealer is just perfect. Sometimes my skin is far too dry to use it alone but it works fabulously as a setting powder on those days, so it's a bit of a winning product all round.
Sleek Pout Polish in Bare Minimum* - £4.49
Right now I'm having a hate-hate relationship with all my brighter lip colours. Every time I try to wear one I look in the mirror and think that they look so ageing - I think this is partly because it's my birthday soon and I'm having a slight quarter-life-crisis!
This little pot came in last month's Glossybox* and I think it's pretty perfect. A little bit gives a barely-there amount of colour and if I keep adding a little more the colour seems to build up a little, which is nice. It's smooth, wonderfully glossy, and fairly hydrating. All for under £5 too!
Rimmel Lasting Finish Mono Blush in Santa Rose - £3.99
I wish that all blushes came in such dinky packaging, it's so cute and that's actually what attracted me to this range of blushes in the first place. I'm such a sucker for packaging, I think I'm an advertisers dream sometimes!
Santa Rose is one of those colours that just seems to work and I've found myself reaching for it on those days where I'm not sure what I want to wear, which appear to be getting more frequent as I get over - come back decision making skills! Giving a very natural, neutral rosy peach glow, this is a beautiful thing in a tiny little package.
Toni & Guy Deep Barrel Waver* - £34.99 & Charles Worthington Volume & Bounce Texturising Spray* - £6.99
These two together are a bit of a dream team. When it comes to hair I'm pretty low maintenance, but in my books bigger means better. I used to backcomb my hair every single day and although I didn't find my hair was getting too damaged I figured that it's probably not the best to do all the time. I chopped off a good few inches to get rid of the scraggly ends and discovered the joy of texture.
My hair has a little bit of a natural wave to it, but it's fun to accentuate that a little more with a waving tool. I'm not neat with it at all, the messier the better! I haven't tried the Oribe texturising spray that has been getting a lot of hype recently, but I was gifted this beauty from Charles Worthington that I think is fairly similar and honestly, it was love at first spray. It adds a little bit of extra messiness as well as a little bit of hold too. It's definitely a winner!
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell - £5.36
Last Saturday I picked up this book, a big mug of hot chocolate and retreated to my bed where I'd made a mini fort out of duvets and blankets. I was feeling a little sad that day and needed to escape. I barely moved until I'd read every single word and it was as wonderfully sweet as I'd hoped it would be!
