Wishing... - Featuring Topshop, Tom Ford & Zara

Topshop Daisy Print Cut Out Tea Dress - £46
I adore tea dress in the summer, this one from Topshop is feminine and fun with the daisy pattern and cut outs.

Zara Two Tone Bowling Bag - £59.99
Zara is on top form this season, I'm lusting after most of their handbags. This monochrome number would be the perfect accompaniment to the Topshop dress.

Topshop Thick Chunky Chain Collar - £12.50
Sometimes a simple chain looks better than a statement piece, this one from Topshop would become a wardrobe staple that you could wear with everything.

Tom Ford Cherry Lush Lipstick - £36
A luxury lipstick can put a smile on a girls lips and a hint of colour too. If I could pick an expensive lipstick, I'd go for a shade from Tom Ford, they have such chic packaging. 

What have you been wishing for?

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo & Effaclar Mat Review

Effaclar Duo and Mat Review

La Roche-Posay's Effaclar Duo took the beauty community by storm with promises of clearing imperfections and Effaclar Mat is it's lesser known sister.
I've tried and tested both of these products and even repurchased, so reviewing them is the next step.

I first tried Effaclar Mat back when it was Effaclar M, it's the same product just in new packaging. Effaclar Mat does exactly what it says on the tin, it creates a matte base for applying make-up. What I really do love about this product is that unlike some mattifying primers or treatments it doesn't dry out the skin. In fact this gel like product feels like it's moisturising, and then it dries matte. I've never had any problems with Effaclar Mat so I fully recommend it!

Effaclar Duo and I have a love/hate relationship, I only use this product when my skin is playing up. If I spot a breakout I slap this on after cleansing and toning. It's a similar texture to Effaclar Mat but a little more runny. I do believe it helps with spots and imperfections but I personally can't use it everyday as it eventually dries my skin out too much.

These two do not come cheap, they are around £12-£13 each, but once in a while Boots does 2 for £12 so I stock up.

Have you ever tried Effaclar Duo or Mat?

Where have you been? *sings like Rihanna*

I just thought I'd show you a quick snap shot into my last 2 weeks, which have been amazing. I went to see the beautiful Beyonce at the O2 in London and hit the pier in Brighton on Bank Holiday Monday.

As you may or may not know I've been completing my Fashion Journalism degree. Three years of uni were collected in my Final Major Project, which came to a whopping 72 pages, with supporting material the word count was 18,000 words! I dread to think how many words I've written over the years.

I took a short break from work and blogging to make sure I could focus on my uni work but as of last Wednesday, 8th of May, I AM A FREE WOMAN! No more assignments and no more Harvard referencing, thank the Lord!

I'm tempted to do a post emotionally gushing over my 3 wonderful years at uni, so keep your eyes peeled.

I'll be back properly blogging from next week so I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
