Hello my little melons!

So today is just a quick post about my make up from today. I had early morning lectures this morning so I had little time to do any make up... In fact I don't usually bother with much at all! In the photo I am only wearing Barry M black liquid liner, L'Oréal Paris Carbon Black mascara, Kiko flase Lashes Concentrate Top Coat mascara, Garnier Roll-on Anti-dark circles concealer and 91 Terracotta Tile lipstick by Estée Lauder. 

A very quick and simple look for the day. This is something I usually sport when I am in a bit of a rush!

Album of the Week!

Hello chicklets! I am back with another album of the week and with this one there is no need to describe it to you. It is simply amazing. Therefore I suggest you toddle off to Spotify and check it out for yourself. The album I am talking about is: 

Chet Baker sings.

Released in 1956.

So there we go.

The days are getting a bit chilly which can only mean one thing... HAND CREAMS!

Hola Chic@s! How are we all?

So it's starting to get a little chillier here in Paris, and my hands are seeing the effect of the cold weather. I am a sucker for hand creams, especially rose scented ones!
So here are a few favourites that I have been using recently to keep the cold weather from drying out my digits:

(From Left to Right):
Fleur Chérie: enriched with grape seed oil and shea butter. Contains néroli and orange blossom.

Rose Nuit de Mai: contains 20% shea butter so is ultra nourishing with a delicate rose scent.

Creme Mains: contains lavender essential oil that leaves a light perfume fragrance on the hands.

Rose des Neiges: This one also contains grape seed oil and shea butter and leaves hands with the velvety fragrance of a white rose.

These can be found on the L'Occitane website here :L'Occitane

What have you been doing to protect your skin against the cold?

First Paris Haul!

Hello my little lovelies!

Hope you are all well. So today I decided to hit the shopping centre Bercy's for some well deserved retail therapy... (and I had just gotten paid!) and here is what I came back with:

So let's go in for a closer look!
H&M Scarf

H&M Pencil Skirt

H&M Rose gold hair clasp

Tati 90 Dernier tights

Kiko Lash lengthening topcoat

Tati Rat tail comb

Iam elephant earrings

I  am pleased that I managed to get things that I actually needed... ok maybe I didn't need the mascara or the hair clasp or the skirt... but I thought it was about time I treated myself! 

I have realised that I have forgotten to get a close up of the Kiko and HDMetal nail polishes that I bought today, but I will be doing a product review/NOOTD post soon with them so don't worry! Also, I will review the Lash lengthening mascara for you lovely lot too!

Hope you are making the most of your weekend,

No Makeup Makeup: Tip Number 2!

Hello again little ones, hope everyone has been having a fab start to the week! Here is tip number 2 for that effortless no makeup makeup look we strive for:

Use foundation as your concealer for under eye circles and redness around the nose. Foundation is a lot less heavy than concealer and can be worked into the skin much easier than a concealer that can sometimes end up looking 'cakey' if it isn't blended well enough. Dab a light amount of foundation under those eyes to give your face an instant wake up call and banish those bags without the heaviness of a concealer!
Unless you are incredibly lucky to not suffer from under eye dark circles, then give this tip a go for that effortless finish.
