#KeepItSimple with Avène Tolérance EXTRÊME

#KeepItSimple with Avène Tolérance EXTRÊME

I was introduced to French pharmacy brand Avène just over a year ago and they have remained a firm favourite skincare brand, despite the countless of brands or products that have passed my skin. For almost a month now I have been exclusively testing out their newly re-launched Tolérance EXTRÊME* range, which has recently had a makeover and my skin is definitely enjoying this more simple skincare routine. But before I share with you my final results and show you how my skin took to this Avène challenge, I wanted to introduce you to the new range and why it's not only amazing but innovative in the beauty world.

The Body Shop Down To Earth Eyeshadows

The Body Shop Down To Earth Eyeshadow Palettes

If you've been reading my blog for some time you will know that I've featured The Body Shop as a brand so many times in my posts, simply because it's a brand that I've always supported & enjoyed using. Their body care products are always impressive and when it comes to skincare their Vitamin E range has always worked for my dry skin. When it comes to their makeup range however, I've only tried a couple of products, but of course always eager to experiment with more. So it was perfect timing to do just that when I spotted that the new Down To Earth Eyeshadow Palettes* were being released. In total there's six new palettes to choose from, 5 of them are quads and the other option is the bigger palette with 8 different shades. I really think with the shade selection available there is bound to be at least one palette that you would be interested in.

Summer Shirt Styles

Summer Shirt Styles feat. H&M and Primark

Before summer comes to an end & we're all drooling over this year's AW styles, I wanted to quickly share with you my go to summer shirt styles which I have been wearing a lot for the past month. When it comes to UK weather this kind of easy going style, basically a pair of skinny jeans and a shirt is my favourite thing to wear all year round to be honest... So technically it's not only summer appropriate. But I did style them with this current season in mind & kept it quite simple so the actual pieces stood out above anything else. I was give the opportunity from Ocean Credit Cards to go off on a bit of a shopping spree and basically have a treat yourself kind of day, but of course I still opted for affordable pieces that I picked out from two of my favourite high street stores... Primark along with H&M of course!

Mercante Restaurant in Sheraton Grand London Park Lane


Mercante Restaurant in Sheraton Grand London Park Lane

Last week whilst I had family visiting here in London for a short visit, we decided to treat ourselves for a spot of lunch. Since I rarely get to go out or splurge on lunches out #mommyproblems, I decided to bring my camera along with me so I can share with you my opinions on the newly opened Mercante restaurant. I learned from my other half that the restaurant opened whilst I was spending my summer in Dublin & before I even glanced at the menu or their website, I knew I wanted to visit since it sounded like a fantastic place. Mercante is located in the recently refurbished Sheraton Grand  London Park Lane Hotel in the heart of Mayfair and if you thought the place looked amazing before... you need to see it now after the renovations (which are quickly coming to an end), it's impressive that's for sure.

Oval Brushes... Worth The Hype?

Oval Brushes... Worth The Hype?

Oval brushes are certainly not new in the beauty world as I'm pretty sure the original and super expensive Artis brushes released a few years back. MAC also had a few options available, which I remember spotting over 2 years ago, but the hype was definitely not here and there were certainly no budget versions available. Over the past few months however I have seen these oval brushes flood the blogosphere and my Instagram feed too, people have become obsessed and now there's plenty of affordable options available to suit every budget, including Primark versions. So when My Makeup Brushes got in touch about reviewing their Oval Brush Set*, I was very excited and eager to see what all the hype was about, not to mention that I wanted to give you my opinion (unrequested or not)...
