Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet

I'm not really one for expensive foundations, don't get me wrong I've tried a handful that I've really liked but just not enough to repurchase. Except that is, for my beloved Chanel Pro Lumiere, which I couldn't repurchase as I had the perfect timing to go and fall in love with it just before it was discontinued which meant I could never buy another bottle, gutted doesn't cut it. So I've been keeping an eye out for any new Chanel Foundation launches and I got this a few days after it was released back in April and I have to say I like it, In fact, I like it a lot.

Sunday Series: A little me time.

Sometimes I think the best think for everyone is to take a little bit of a time out. The majority of people who meet me think I'm very calm and relaxed person, which couldn't be further from the truth. So you see the writing on that jumper up there, It's all a big lie. Basically I don't do duvet days, In fact my mum laughed at me when I bought this because I'm really bad at relaxing. I'm one of those people who can sit and stress and turn the smallest issue into Mt.Everest within an hour and I always need something to be getting on with. I can just about get it together to sit and read a good book but even then I have to keep putting it down to go and bounce about the house and find something else to do. If I'm not at college every weekday or working at the weekends I fill my days off up so I'm always out and about somewhere or getting through my daily to do list that never seems to end. Though sometimes it all gets a bit much and I feel the need to take a bit of time on my own to recharge by binge watching America's Next Top Model and The Bake Off (the two don't go hand in hand I know), drink coffee and eat my body weight in Veggie Percy Pigs which I need to tell you all are better than the originals in case it sways you next time you make a purchase. I failed slightly at the duvet day as I popped to town in the morning but I made up for it with a nice long shower and a massive pampering session later on.

What do you like to do to relax and take some time away from the world?

Do I really need a Duster Coat?

Black Check New Look | Orange Topshop | Grey Jaquard River Island

The answer to that question is of course, No, I don't need one, mainly because they aren't a winter coat and I can't even justify it with saying that one would be good for autumn as they aren't waterproof and here in Britain that is a A/W necessity really. However, even after all that, the answer to do I want a Duster coat? Is a resolute, Yes. So I thought I would share with you my top picks of trans seasonal coats that I do not need and will not be buying but are still oh so pretty.

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Fatigue Blur in 'Warm Apricot'

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Fatigue Blur RRP £7.99

I wasn't a huge fan of the original Baby Skin Primer, I like a dewy foundation and as a mattifying primer it obviously doesn't work in that respect. However as I am one of those people who has to find something to do every hour of every day or I don't know what to with myself I have tired, dull skin 99.9% of the time, so I thought this might just work out for me and you know what, it does...sometimes.

A day in the sunshine.

Tshirt Primark | Shorts Zara | Shoes Primark

Last week my mum and I decided to take advantage of the sunny weather and go for a wander round the park and of course stop for cake. I got the chance to wear my Zara shorts that I mentioned a few posts ago and my new favourite shoes. I was all set to buy the Topshop pair I mentioned in my wishlist last week but then I saw these in Primark for only £7 so I couldn't resist a good bargain.

Balance Me Radiance Face Mask

Balance me Radiance Face Mask RRP £18.00

You might have noticed noticed a few posts ago that my daily skincare routine doesn't include any expensive products, I don't see the point when I've found inexpensive products that work for me, however apart from the Palmers Clay Mask that I can't always find in the shops when I need it, I've never been able to find an inexpensive mask that doesn't affect my skin badly. So this is when I turn to the more expensive brands such as Elemis, Origins and now more recently Balance me. I spotted this in Debenhams when I was trying to figure out what to spend the rest of the giftcard on that my mum got me for my birthday and after moonig over all of the new skincare that they have started to sell I settle on this little number.
