Beauty Favourites: June

June was a great month for beauty as I got to try so many new products and I'd like to share with you the ones who made the cut and into my makup bag - on another note, how is it already July!?

First up is RMK - I've always loved their cleansing balm and now I'm totally hooked on their beauty products. Their liquid foundation is perfect for summer - it's very light weight and gives your skin a natural and dewy complexion.

Second up is their concealer - I've hardly ever used any concealer as I've always felt they make my eye area look worse but this one hydrates whilst covering dark circles - just love it.

Next up is their mascara - Having naturally very straight and short lashes I always get a little excited when a mascara manages the impossible - long and curled lashes! 

The Caudalie Beauty Elixier is an old favourite of mine and a bit of a hero product in my makeup bag, especially on hot days like today.

I've recently discovered German Makeup brand Zoeva and I know I'm super late to the party - Next to their amazing makeup their also do some really great makeup brushes. I love their blush brush and their concealer brush is perfect for blending.

Another brand I've been loving for a long time is Laura Mercier and I got really excited to try their new foundation - This Silk Creame Moisturizing Photo Edition Foundation leaves your skin luminous and fresh and offers medium coverage. Being a photo edition, this foundation is perfect for evenings.

This shampoo and conditioner from Maria Nila were love at first try. This brand offers a wide range of exclusive colour-protecting hair care and styling products. I'm using their silver shampoo for blonde hair and I love how glossy, soft and voluminous it leaves my hair. It is also perfect for refreshing your hair colour especially in between hair appointments.

Another old favourite of mine is OPI - I love their range of colours and great formula. My all time favorite colour for summer has to be baby pink shade and this Suzi Shops & Island Hops will look just perfect with a tan.

I still can't believe we are already in July and I'll be heading off to Italy at the end of the month. I really hope I can squeeze in some extra gym session and for some extra help I'm loving this Mio Shrink To Fit and Cellulite Brush for firmer skin.

Following an incredible launch event the other week, Benefit Cosmetics have launched their cult They're Real Mascara and Push Up Liner in new colours.

Their new shades are surprisingly wearable and especially the blue mascara is amazing during summer.

Their eye liners come in brown, purple, green and blue and I love them for their easy application.

Let me know what your current beauty favourites are and If you've tried any of these xx

Blakes Hotel / Matthew Williams High Tea

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you all get to enjoy the lovely weather!

If you are still looking for the perfect spot to enjoy your afternoon tea al fresco I have just the right thing for you. 

The Blakes Hotel has teamed up with British designer, Matthew Williams, who created their courtyard as a sumptuous celebration of the summer season (read more here).

We were sat in the bird cage which is decorated with the most beautiful and colourful pillows in true Matthew Williams style and the ceiling is covered with dried flowers - a real summer oasis. 
One of the things I fell right in love with when arriving in the UK was the tradition of high tea and let me tell you, this is one of the best I've had. 

The sandwiches were packed full of flavours and their scones and strawberry tarts were divine.

Next to their great tea menu they also offer an amazing range of Hendricks's cocktails.

I've worn one of my favourite summer dress and I believe every women should have at least one wrap dress in their wardrobe - they are so flattering and versatile.

I've already blogged about my love for wrap dresses in one of my first blog posts over here.

The Blakes Hotel / Matthew Williams summer oasis is available until the 14th of July - Book your high tea over here.

Striped maxi dress x Caravelle

Happy Friday everyone!

This is the third and final part of my Caravelle Collaboration featuring this lovely gold-toned watch - I've picked one of my typical "summer in the city" looks. 

I love how easy, breezy this knit maxi dress feels.
 I've teamed it with my Stuart Weitzman lace ups, golden bracelets and vintage denim jacket (which I own since I'm 14 - I guess this makes it truly vintage haha).

London feels like a complete different city when the sun is out and today was the perfect occasion for wearing my new Sunglass Hut sunnies.

Happy Wednesday everyone! 

I'm currently collaborating with Caravelle, styling some of their gorgeous watches. 

In my previous post I've showed you a more girly look so I thought I'll go for a monochrome and clean chic look this time.

I love the masculine and clean look of this watch and it makes for the perfect statement piece.
