Weekend pictures.

These a a few images I thought I would share with you since I haven't been posting a lot recently! These are some images of central London which have been edited using "picfx" on my iPhone. Also I bought a new pair of running shoes from Nike, they are amazing and so lightweight... I wish they were in the aqua or pink colour that I've seen a lot but the only colour they had in the ones I wanted was purple, oh well im still happy!

Exam Stress.

At the moment I am stressing majorly over an upcoming psychology exam.. I just don't seem to be able to understand anything! I've been doing practise tests galore and still can not manage to understand it.. The questions are so complicated and I just can not link information with the answers. If anyone can give me some tips for revision or reassurance that psychology exams aren't as bad as I feel they are, please do! I simply can not wait for these exams to be over.

June Wishlist.

I have decided that each month I will do a list of products that I wish I had! Here is the "June Wishlist", first on my list is the Rodial "Brazillian Tan" which is meant to be a lightweight tanning product which is meant to moisturise the skin and as a bonus it is said to have a gardenia scent which would be great compared to the strange smell that you get with most fake tan products! Second on the list is the Elemis "Balancing Lime Blossom Cleanser" which is recommended for teenage or combination skin as it naturally balances and repairs the skin. Next product is Trilogy's "Rosehip Oil" which has been on my wishlist ever since I heard that it is an essential item in Miranda Kerrs makeup bag, she has great skin and after reading reviews I have decided that many people find this product to be as great as she claims it to be. The last product is the Caudalie "Beauty Elixir" which is hyped within the beauty industry as an amazing toning and refreshing spray that can be used under or over makeup. I am very keen to try these products and may even purchase some of them this evening. If you want to comment with the products that you love or are on your Wishlist, I would love to know what my followers use and maybe I can even by myself some of those products!

Glossybox Review.

This months Glossybox wasn't as great as I was expecting from a birthday box! Overall the products weren't the best and the only things I would purchase is the shower gel which is simply divine and the face masks which left my skin feeling fresh. The perfumes were very sweet and I felt that they would be like one of those perfumes that make you feel sick when you wear them, the hair oil seemed good but wasn't as great as other oils that I have tried, and the eyelashes are something I don't wear so they went to waste! I'm just hoping the next box is as great as April's Organic box.

Weekend in Pictures.

Over the weekend I travelled from London to Stratford-Upon-Avon for my cousins wedding. The wedding was beautiful and the weather wasn't to bad which was great! I am now back in London preparing myself for exams this week(very nervous) but I have had the chance to go through some photos from the weekend which I have on my phone and picked a few to share! There is an image of the dress I wore which is from a shop in Australia called seduce which I wore with the Zara shows that I showed you on Friday, there are also some images from Anne Hathaways cottage in Stratford and finally one of the wedding venue. When I am able to access a camera I may upload some pictures from the actual wedding.

A day out in London.

Today I decided to head to Covent Gardens in central London for a spot of shopping! After looking around the shops I didn't end up buying to much, however I did buy a pair of shoes from Zara, some products from lush, tea from Whittards of Chelsea and i found the nicest summer fragrance from Jo Malone which in going to buy this weekend. The day was quite fun although the wind and occasional rain wasn't the best!

Chanel Perfection Lumiere.

I bought this foundation in April and feel that i have used it enough now to do a review. After using the "Pro Lumiere" for about a year I was quite upset to hear that it had been discontinued, however I found the "Perfection Lumiere" and it is AMAZING! This foundation has a matte long wear finish which is perfect for my skin which can get quite oily, it stays on for most of the day and that is without a primer! So I can officially say that I am in love with this foundation and will definitely be buying it again.

Skin routine.

These are the products that I have been using on my face recently, I do the whole cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise routine. For cleansing I have been using the "seaweed deep cleansing facial wash" from the body shop, it is for combination/oily akin and so far has been doing an amazing job! I usually exfoliate twice a week using the "exfoliating cream" from KORA Organics, this is one of the best exfoliators I have come across and since it uses organic products I feel like it isn't harming my skin. Finally is my moisturiser, I find my skin gets quite oily around my t-zone so picked up the "tea tree skin clearing lotion" from the body shop, although its meant for blemish prone skin and my skin isn't like that I find that it helps to cut back the oil on my face and in turn prevent blemishes.

Moroccan Oil.

This is one product I swear by! As I have said in previous posts my hair is insanely dry and I have used everything, however there is one product that I will always go back to and that is "Moroccan Oil". I've used a number of bottles of this stuff and although it doesn't come cheap(£30) it lasts about half a year so the price isn't to bad if you think about how long it lasts and how effective it is. If you haven't tried this stuff get out to your local hairdresser and try it for yourself!
