A Very Overdue Catchup ...

Hello my lovely lot, firstly apologies for an overly long absence! This past month has been craziness for me, starting a new job  and trying to sort through all of the new work load! 

So I just wanted to do a little post on the last few weeks, what I've been loving and any new goings on. 

One thing I've really fallen back in love with is LUSH! I love lush products and this month I really have had a craze for them again! Some all time favourites include Twilight bath ballistic and Rose Argen body conditioner but this month for me it's been all about Dream Wash Shower Smoothie! This is the most beautiful product to grace my skin in a while and it makes those early mornings more bearable, it really is the small things! 
Its described as 'Designed to be incredibly gentle but actively soothing. Take the heat out of troubled, sensitive skin. Perfect for every day of the year - but essential after sun burn.

Dreamwash is a soft blend of soap, with added soothing aloe vera gel and skin calming calamine powder.  Together they give a soft texture and a soft cleanse that will leave your body smooth and nourished.' I'm in love :)

Smash Box have a new launch coming to stores this month! Including their new Liquid Halo HD Foundation which I was lucky enough to pick up a few weeks early! Testing this has been one of my favourite things this month, I've really been enjoying it! I picked up shade 2 after being matched up by their lovely mua. The only criticism I have is the majority of shade are very yellow based so matching my pinker skin tone proved tricky! However I love the medium to buildable coverage and the finish is dewy and glowing, once blended the colour also adapts and looks absolutely fine! 

I've still been enjoying finishing products through out the month, and keep setting the challenge of using up my hefty perfume collection! Nominating one particular fragrance and making my way down the bottle ... This months choice was L'Occitane Rose which is a beautiful floral scent that I have loved wearing! And have received many compliments on but as it is coming closer to the autumn months this scent is more for spring season so I'm glad to have finally finished it!! 

Another thing I've been loving recently is Lancôme, I've never used anything from the brand before apart from their hypnose mascara! But, like many others I became hooked by their newest launch Dream Tone! Oh my goodness it is beautiful and the packaging swoon* I was also very lucky as I purchased whilst they were on gift with one other item and got some fabulous freebies to try :) bonus! It's basically a serum which helps to minimise the appearance of unevenness to the skin tone and leave skin super smooth! As I really struggle with redness from blemish scarring I really wanted to give this product a try and so far after using it for about two weeks I'm really impressed! 

As it's now September and getting very chilly I have started to get into the Autumn spirit :) I love this time of year purchasing a few new jumpers, shoes and pyjamas to keep me cosy!! 

The next few items I'm eyeing up will be ankle boots, a winter coat and the orange and cinnamon Yankee candle eeeep :)

Moving onto random things I've finally got into Game of Thrones which I have been meaning to do for so long and I am hooked! It's been so nice to get back from work, curl up and watch a box set! Hehe! 

Walnut Whips just putting it out there I have never tried a walnut whip until recently but I am oh so obsessed with them now they are amazing mallowy goodness! NOM! 

Lastly I am super excited for the next few weeks with Birthdays to celebrate and I go on holiday finally* on the 5th of October to Lanzerote, which I'm literally giddy about I can't wait to be on a beach with a cocktail or two!! 

Ok well I shall wrap up here, hope you are all well!! Steph xxx
