Muted Winter Nails

It's an odd colour pairing, but for this winter I'm absolutely loving muted rosy pinks.

Whilst I would normally assume pinks are for Spring/Summer, this shading is crisp and clear and for me, they're the perfect alternative Winter shades.

Anyone that knows me well enough knows that I am really particular with my nail varnish shades. So for me to have fallen in love with this trio of Essie polishes it must mean they're something special.

The darkest of the bunch, Eternal Optimist, isn't quite showing it's true colour through the camera, but its a perfect muted pink and I've worn it to death since summer ended.

The palest and  my personal favourite, Ballet Slippers, I wear all year round and never get bored of it. For me, it's the perfect 'I don't know know which colour to chose colour' and I get compliments on it all the time. Two thin coats and it looks very pale pink, three thicker coats and it looks very off white, pair it with a tan and you're on to a winner, but wear it in winter whilst wrapping up cosey with lots of fur it's the perfect crisp colour.

Moving away from the pinks is Sand Tropez, a really crisp muted nude. I would say it's got more of a pink undertone than the more peachy or cool nudes, and i've founded it suits my hands far more now that I'm less tanned.

A Long Weekend In Paradise

Set about an hour off the coast of Indonesia are the 3 Gili Islands.

In my last post I mentioned one on my favourite spots in Bali, Nalu Bowls.

Glowy Cheeks: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush

Introducing a holy grail cheek product...

Once you've got over their initial beauty, (I mean come on, have you ever seen a more beautiful product?!) the blusher itself is insanely good quality. 


The Lust List: H&M Edit

I'm not normally a huge H&M fan. I sometimes find that you have to sift through all the rails a little too much before you find something worth buying, so just tend not to bother most of the time.

A recent student discount offer tempted me to visit the flagship and 3 visits later, I'm hooked. When did H&M get so good?!

The secret to natural glowing skin: Caudalie Beauty Elixir

After being introduced to this product not so long ago, I can well and truly say it's an imidiate game changer.

Milan In Pictures

Last summer I travelled to Milan and absolutely fell in love.
It's a beautiful city, rich in culture and even richer in amazing ice cream.

If you enjoy walking, architecture, shopping and eating, I'd highly recommend visiting Milan. 3-4 days would be the perfect amount of time to cover majority of the main sites, it'll keep you very busy but allow enough time to really enjoy it.

Going back through the pictures is causing me a serious case of wanderlust!


The Lust List - Mono Edit

I've been dillydallying over giving this blog thing a go for some time, but now that I've finished uni and my head is in still writing mode (#DissertationProblems), I figured It won't hurt to get started!

Student loans have come in, conveniently as I finished university, this obviously meant some damage was just asking to be done. 

So, it's heading towards summer... and while I should be taking full advantage of allowing colour into my wardrobe, monochrome always holds a place in my heart.

Awkward hellos

After many years spent scrolling through blog posts, avidly admiring the beautiful pictures and spending money frivolously in 'blogger made me do it' frenzies, I've finally bit the bullet and started my own.
