The five best bits: finally meeting Lilah’s beautiful dog Betty. I got to hang out with her for a whole evening and it was ruddy ace + my first eyebrow threading experience. Why oh why have I not tried this before?! It works ruddy wonders + an impromptu trip down memory lane via my Facebook photos. While there are some pictures in there that I’d rather forget, it was an amazing way to remember what a ruddy immense few years I’ve had + finally getting a good night’s sleep after many a horrendous one. Holy moly did I need it + catching up with friends – both new and old – after a particularly hideous night of work. Sometimes you’ve just gotta take a load off y’know?
Beauty product pick of the week: I’ve been playing with a number of new-er products this week but the top of the pile has to be the Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Gloss in Cashmere Rose. Lightweight but incredibly glossy, moisturising but not sticky, this lip lacquer has got it all
On the agenda: it’s looking to be a busy few weeks. Work, work and more work plus the end of the lacrosse season is nigh *sob*
News flash: so we’ve had a few bouts of hail here in London over the past few days. That’s right, hail. Please be careful peeps, who knows what the weather will do next
Pause for thought: there’s been a lot of talk, both in the news and on social media, about the current #nomakeupselfie campaign that has taken the internet by storm. Women around the world are posting up pictures of themselves without a stitch of make up in order to raise money – and awareness – for cancer research. And while a lot of people have criticised the images for one reason or another, I personally think that any campaign, no matter how small it may seem at first, which helps to raise much-needed support for such a worthy cause should be respected and celebrated. So, whether or not you want to bare your fresh-faced self online, take a minute to text BEAT to 70099 and support the cause
I hope you all have a lovely week!
