Autumns Here

Autumn is my favourite season next to Winter. I just prefer the colder months as well as the fact its race season. I really love the whole getting to wrap up, rain & puddles as well as having the fire on in the house whilst wrapped up in a thick blanket watching TV and drinking tea. I also love after races when you get in the warm shower and wash all the mud off and change into tracksuit bottoms or sitting in the car on the way home covered in a towel or blanket drinking a hot drink thinking of how fun the race was.

This Autumn I am planning on enjoying it as much as I can, including going to pumpkin patches, walks in the woods and drinking seasonal Starbucks drinks. I am also going shopping this Wednesday where I am hoping to buy loads of Autumnal/Winter clothes which I can then do a haul on & an Autumn outfit thing as well.

In the mean time I’m gonna go back to drinking my tea in my bedroom (which I’ve made cosy with candles and blankets with pillows soon to come) and watching Netflix (for those not too squeamish I’d 100% recommend watching House MD!).

Will be back with another blog post soon!

Laura Mercier Foundation Review

During my Kingston day out with my boyfriend, as I mentioned in my previous post he brought me the Laura Mercier Candleglow Foundation. I read and watched a lot of reviews on the foundation and I saw a lot of people saying that its really sheer and isn’t very buildable. I also saw a lot of people using a lot of different techniques to apply it, brushed, beauty blenders and even fingers. I personally am not a fan of applying make up with fingers. I always use either a brush or a beauty blender depending on the product.

I found with this foundation that it blends a lot nicer with a beauty blender and also builds really nicely with a beauty blender. I think a brush is a bit too harsh to use on such a light foundation as it just kind of moves its across the face where as a beauty blender puts it into place to set. I also use concealer after to cover any spots because obviously its a very light foundation so I use a thicker concealer to blend into it.

I am a hundred percent going to be re-buying this when it runs out and I am also eyeing the Laura Mercier primer. I got given a sample and I am really liking it. Over all this is a really good foundation, I think if you have really problematic skin then one of her thicker foundations with a medium to full coverage would be better but if your skin is combination like mine with the odd breakout then this is a good foundation to have. I would say keep a cheap foundation for when you have breakouts or at least a good concealer to hand.

About Me

Welcome to my blog! My blog is going to contain things about make up, fashion &  more, both product reviews, products I love & hauls. As well as this I’ll also upload about any interesting day outs I have no matter what. I thought since this is a new blog it would be a good idea to do a bit of an intro to myself.

I’m nineteen & from London, I work in a bike shop around my studies and I’m hoping to become a physiotherapist. I’m very sporty, competing in cycling events and training martial arts to a high level. Apart from this I have a slight obsession with home ware & candles, I love the Autumn/Winter time and I have a dog called Bailey. I like make up and clothes and have way to much of it, as well as having an obsession with bath & body products resulting in me having tons of bubble baths and constantly changing my body wash & moisturiser. I am working on my YouTube channel although I’m not at editing yet, but I’m working on it, and I enjoy photography so can take a decent photo.

I’m going to aim to post at least once a week, although sometimes my life can get a bit chaotic but I’ll try my best to always have a post for you each week!
