God it’s been ages! Work and life took over the past few weeks but I’m back and can’t wait to talk to you about all my new Spring crushes 🙂
I’m dreaming of Spring while I’m looking out the window to a grey, rainy day… But here’s hoping for some warm weather, some sunny days and some proper flowers blossoming!
In the meantime here are a few of the things that stole my heart these first days of Spring..
I was in York for a catch up with one of my best friends when I passed by a Zatchel shop. I couldn’t resist but taking a look inside and that’s when I saw the Red Leather Satchel from their Classic Satchel Collection. The red colour is so warm and vibrant and the bag itself is of high quality and so elegant in its classic school satchel style that I had to make it mine!
Although I went for a more autumnal colour, I love their Pastel Satchel Collection for Spring. Here are some of my favourite colours of this range:
Nothing feels more like Spring than wearing a little casual, floaty dress! This super cute knit dress has a wrap-front, shape flattering design that ties at the waist and adjustable cami straps which is always a plus! I got mine in blue but it’s also available in grey and burgundy.
I actually got this amazing mask duo as a gift for my birthday back in November! I was still using some other mask products back then though so it was only recently that I tried these ones.
The set includes the Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask which I used as a first step to clean my skin and draw out impurities. It offers a deep cleaning sensation (its scent is quite particular) and leaves the skin feeling smooth and glowing without that feeling of dryness that some purifying masks leave to my skin.
The second product in this set, which I used right after the purifying mask, is the British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask. The texture of this mask is totally different to what I was expecting! It has a gel feel to it and it actually looks like jam! It smells amazing and it’s very light on the skin. Super hydrating, it leaves the skin very smooth and fresh.
I love using them after a long bath as they make me feel as I’m at a spa being pampered 🙂
The Bobbi Brown Havana Brights collection has every potential to become my favourite make up collection for the new season! From the name and the packaging to the warm, sexy coral colours and the new funky products it has summer written all over it!
Bringing to the skin the glow after a day in the Caribbean sun, the Illuminating cheek palette has it all; a bronzer, blush and highlighter. When layered together, the shades create a natural-looking, healthy colour with a subtle glittery finish. According to the Bobbi Brown website, the product should be applied by starting with the neutral shade, adding a touch of the bright shade, then finish with the subtly shimmery shade to highlight the face.
Apart from the Illuminating Cheek palette, the collection includes 4 more funky products in different shades:the dual-ended cream shadow stick, the art stick lip pencil, the art stick liquid lip (I love the Papaya shade) and the Havana Brights Cosmetic Bag.
My lips and hands had a very difficult winter this year. Which means they need some extra TLC. Hence, I make sure I use a lip scrub a couple of times a week to make the smoother. On my recent visit at Lush I discovered this amazing Popcorn Lip Scrub. It contains coconut and jojoba oils, sugar and sea salt to make the lips soft and although I was skeptical in the beginning, its scent is actually incredible!
