Festival Braids, 2 Ways!

This weekend I was lucky enough to be invited along to V Festival in Chelmsford by the lovely people at Mark Hill. They were also super kind and styled my hair each day before the bands started. Both looks were braid-based, which is personally my favourite thing for a festival (practical, but cute!) I absolutely loved the results, so wanted to share the two looks they created for me with you all...

To celebrate the launch of their brand new fragrance 'MYNY' DKNY have launched a snazzy little service where you can make a heart-shaped collage of your favourite pictures of (and from!) New York. Whether they're your own holiday snaps, or your favourite iconic pictures from their gallery, it's pretty fun to do!
Here's a peek at my heart... I've filled it with all my favourite pictures from New York over the years...

The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Range

If you watch my Vlogs on YouTube, you might have already seen a little snippet of my trip to Morocco back in May. If not, The Body Shop invited me along to see first hand where the argan oil in their new Wild Argan Oil range comes from.
It's pretty rare, almost unheard of, for a brand to do this (especially with a blogger!) so I felt thoroughly privileged to have been invited....

DIY Lipgloss: Silk + Honey Review

This week I've been giving this little kit from Silk + Honey a go. I love the idea of making your own cosmetics, but it can be time consuming, expensive and requires a lot of research. Silk + Honey makes it easy by selling 'kits' that not only allow you to mix your own shades and tweak formulations, but they don't contain any chemical nasties that are common in modern cosmetics.
Some of the skin and body care kits are a little overpriced in my opinion, but the lip gloss kit, at £35 is great for anyone who wants to give this a go, but it also makes an amazing gift for makeup lovers! The kit comes complete with all the ingredients you'll need, pipettes, syringes with nibs for filling the tubes and a gorgeous linen makeup bag...

YSL Fusion Ink Foundation Review

There's been quite a bit of hype around the new YSL Fusion Ink or 'Le Teint Encre De Peau' Foundation. With Cara Delevingne on the ads, and YSL handing out free 7-day trial pots last week, it's gotten quite a lot of attention, but is it justified? I've been giving it a try this week so I can give you my thoughts amongst all of the fanfare.
So basically, it's very similar in consistency to both the Giorgio Armani Maestro and L'Oreal Paris Eau De Teint foundations (all three brands being under the L'Oreal umbrella, it's probably also made in the same labs...)
