Nars soft matte concealer

This is one of those beauty finds that I will use forever. I dab it on and my dark circles are completely erased not just improved. The armani high precision concealer was for years my number 1 but no longer. (I feel a pang of betrayal as I type this )

It provides very high coverage without looking  thick or visible on the skin. And the matt finish means I don’t have to use as much powder to set it with which is great as powder always emphasises the fine lines under my eyes. I use the shade medium 1 custard which is a great colour not to white not to orange, perfect!

Make sure the eye are is moisturised a few minutes before application as without the consistency can make the eyes look dehydrated. I use a brush to softly buff it in but can also be dabbed on gently with finger tips.

Nars soft matte concealer is priced at 23 pounds.

Bali

Bali! Where do I start?…There is something in the energy of the place. Once I recovered from the 16 hour flight I started to notice this. A blissful, floaty feeling in the air carries you away.

I had seen many pictures of the cascading rice fields, beautiful beaches, temples and the sunsets but having been there, I can tell you that no photograph can do it justice. I was overcome by it’s beauty.

Hair Supplements that work

 

Please excuse the messy office background in the video above!

Ever since I was a child I have aspired to have thick, long, shiny hair! Probably because of all of those bloody Disney Princesses!!! My hair is fine (but I have lots of it) and it’s wavy so getting it to cooperate with my vision of what I want it to look like hasn’t always been easy.  After researching and experimenting with hair supplements for quite a few years I feel that I have narrowed it down to four that I believe ACTUALLY work.

Choosing the right vase

I make no apologies for being a typical girl in my love of pastels. Whenever I choose flowers I always choose pastel colours. And if ever someone is choosing them for me chances are they’ve received explicit instructions on what colour flowers to ‘surprise’ me with. I also prefer bouquets of all roses, peonies, or lilys I don’t really like to combine different flowers. Sorry to all the talented florists out there who are cringing reading this but to thine own self be true!

Here I’ve put some roses together in a wine glass shaped vase that has a really open wide top. Unless its for the dining or console table  I always choose vases that have really open, wide shapes it means you can put the flowers together in a more beautiful shape than the more narrow vases. The flowers will also last longer as they won’t be so cramped

Sweet Decoration!

I just adore pastels a fact that my flat is testament to. I also like to always keep some kind of food on display; fruits, dates, cakes etc. I think they give a warm loving energy to the home. Its also nice to have something to offer guests at hand. So I use these pastel pink and white marshmallows to fill glass jars.  There you have it pretty sweets!
