Hey! I thought I would try a new sort of post, showing a little peek in to my week of make up, beauty and fashion. A little bit of everything!
Over the last week I have been trying to restore my skin to normal after it had a major freak-out the week before. I have no idea what caused my skin to majorly break out, I use so many different products it's some time hard to pin point exactly what causes breakouts.
The first of my three skincare saviours has been Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Exfoliating Pads. These are soaked in a blend of ingredients, including glycolic acid which help exfoliate and brighten the skin. This has really helped my skin to renew and heal itself. Next I have been loving the Superdrug Tea Tree Cleanser & Toner. Obviously tea tree is great for breakouts, I have been sweeping this over my skin after cleansing & exfoliating to help get rid of any bacteria. It also contains aloe vera which really helps to calm the skin. Finally I have been wrapping up my skincare routine by using the Hydraluron Moisture Jelly by Indeed Labs. This is a new product from Indeed Labs and I love, love, love it. It has a unique pump which distributes just the right amount of product for your face. The gel is lightweight and feels refreshing on the skin. It sinks in so quickly yet provides intense hydration, leaving the skin moisturised, plump and healthy.
During the week on my way to work I have been stopping in to get a freshly made juice from the newest juice bar in Glasgow, the Juice Garden. They offer so many freshly made juices, smoothies, shot and fruit bowls. They are so yummy and they literally have a juice for everything. The one in the picture above was called Morning Juice and contained pineapple, apple and passion fruit. Defo makes the morning journey to work a little brighter!
I have had a busy few weeks at work so on Friday night it was good to head out for some dinner and cocktails for my best friends birthday. We headed to TGI Friday's which is great for a nice relaxed meal and it has plenty of yummy cocktails to offer. It's safe to say that Frozen Strawberry Daiquiris and Strawberry Caipiroskas are our faves.
As it was a pretty casual dinner I just wore some black skinny jeans, a black top, some cobalt blue heels and a nice statement necklace. I also picked up some gorgeous false eyelashes from Superdrug that afternoon to wear. They were Ardell Chocolate Lashes, ones which I had never seen before. They have a mixture of brown and black lashes which gives very pretty effect!
One of my beauty highlights of the week was getting yet another lip product, but not any lip product.....a new Tom Ford lipstick!!! Eeeek! Adding to my little collection is the Tom Ford Lipstick in True Coral. Tom Ford lipsticks have to be one of the most luxurious lip products there is. True Coral is stunning red/coral which is so creamy and pigmented and the best thing is my lovely friend managed to get this for me on her (amazing) staff discount. I can't wait to wear this colour out!
Today is Sunday and I had lovely family lunch to go to. We made the drive to the Bridge Inn in Ratho which is not far from Edinburgh. This was such a pretty little restaurant perched on the banks of a canal, it was just a shame that it was absolutely pouring down with rain. That's Scotland for you! I thought I would share my outfit with you.
My mint green pleated top is from Topshop (I think they only have a cream version now). My floral scuba trousers are from Warehouse and my nude pointed heels are from Primark (I know! What a bargain, they also do them in black, cobalt blue, bright pink and orange). I curled my hair with my Remington Pearl Curling Wand and left my make up fairly simple and natural with a swipe of Bobbi Brown Pale Mauve lipstick.
As soon as I got home it was straight in to my pyjamas (as you can see from the first picture) and time to chill :)
Hope you all had a good week and are ready for the new week ahead!
