Recently, i have been doing some new home improvements, decorating and buying new furnishings. Obviously, that leaves very little for beauty items.
I have still been buying much needed beauty items though and want to share my favourites for the last 3 months. Yes, i cannot believe its been three months since i last posted. It has flown by. My new job is quite demanding and i have been catching up with friends at weekends to.
Finally, Easter weekend has given me a long weekend off so i can post.
Here are my top 5 favourites for the past couple of months.
Office, Black Ankle Boots.
Love these boots i got in the sale. They have enough of a heel on them to give my legs length and make them look slimmer and; they are very comfortable. You can’t go wrong with classic ankle boots with tight jeans.
I got them almost half price.£38 from £60.00. The leather isn’t hard and i haven’t had a single ache or blister off them. Well done Office!
Liberty Loddons Flower Print Design Cushions.
I bought two new couches with a fairly neutral fabric. This means they will fit into any colour scheme and i can make them look great with coloured cushions.
I had my eye on the Liberty’s loddons flower print cushions from John Lewis for some time, but they are pretty expensive at £60 each. They have beautiful fabric though.
There is currently 20% off so i got them a bit cheaper. I just love them and they are feathered cushions. Great quality.
Dior Capture Youth Plump Filler Serum.
This is just wonderful. Again, i bought it on discount. It’s quite expensive full price.
Its a serum you put on after your moisturiser and is like Estée Lauder’s ANR on steroids. It must contain more hyaluronic acid because, it plumps out lines super fast. No fragrance and no irritation at all. I just love it and its going to be part of my skin care routine for the forceable future. Who wants obvious lines after all ?!!!!
Botox looks too un-natural and gives every one who uses it a plump face. Yuck! This is probably the next best thing that keeps you looking natural.
Chanel Vitalumière Aqua Foundation, SPF 15. 20 Beige.
Always a staple in my foundation collection. I try out new ones from various brands that come out each year and yet, i go back to this one everytime and Dior Star Foundation. Both are incredibly similar in that they give a dewy look, which is great for maturing skin. (I have just re-purchased for the umpteenth time).
I can’t do without this one. Medium coverage with a super natural finish. Great for sensitive skin, even though it has the typical Chanel scent. Love it. I use 20 in the winter and 30 when my skin gets a touch of colour in the summer.
Finally, Number 5.
Sony Digital Radio.DAB/FM XDR-V20D
I recently bought this again with a discount code, (I’m getting good at this).
I needed a new radio and this one is a little cube which packs a powerful punch in sound. You can download your own songs on to it. Its an alarm clock, and i have programmed 5 radio stations. Has a rechargable battery, so i can take it from room to room with me. I love the grey/blue colour and it fits well on my bedside table.
What’s not to love? Worth every penny.
That’s it for this month. Have a great Easter everyone. Take care and i will see you all soon. 😉
