Current Favourites

Don't you love when you're sifting through your endless amount of beauty products and make-up when you rediscover products that you've forgotten you loved or even had? I've been trying to do this more regularly so I switch up what I have and it's also a good way to use up older products. 
The last month I rediscovered my love for the YSL Volupte Tint in Oil in, 'Cherry My Cherie'. This is one of my everyday lip choices as this is like no other lip product I own. It stains my lips with the loveliest hue of Cherry and also gives a gloss finish. However, because this is an oil I don't ever have that horrible sticky feeling wearing this which most lip glosses have. This is really low-maintenance to wear during the day which is why I tend to wear this to work.
For summer I have been addicted to cream blushers as they just blend seamlessly into the skin, giving a natural healthy glow which still looks dewy. This Real Techniques Stippling Brush is THE perfect brush for applying cream products.  Just dab your brush into the blush a few times then stipple along your cheekbones - it does all the blending for you! This Sephora Blush in, 'Rose Pop' isn't cream but I've neglected it since I've bought it, the bright Fuchsia Pink colour is perfect for brightening up a dull complexion.
Another favourite which I've rediscovered is the, Benefit Brow-Zings in, 'Deep'. I love this for defining my brows at the moment. I only use the wax side as the powder is way to much of a Red-Brown colour for my Black brow hairs but I really love how the wax colour matches my brows pretty well which also sets them in place for the day.
I will always recommend Dior for mascaras and the new and improved Dior Show Mascara is no exception. Love this! If you want volume as well as separation then this is your winner. Full size works out to be £24.50 but in my opinion it's so worth it. Dior know how to do mascaras.
Fragrance wise, my Escentric Molecules, 'Molecule 01' perfume has to be my favourite at the moment. This fragrance is like nothing else; It smells different on everyone so it's amazing and unique every time. I always get compliments when I wear this and I can smell it from a mile away when somebody else is wearing it!
Lastly, my new Ray-bans are my pride and joy at the moment. I was hesitant to spend so much on two pairs but I love both of these and I know they are an investment in my wardrobe.

Suede Co-Ord

SUEDE CO-ORD SUEDE CO-ORD SUEDE CO-ORD SUEDE CO-ORD Co-Ord Two Piece Set: Luxemme* | Kimono: Pull & Bear | Sandals: Primark | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

It was raining when I took these images so please excuse the wet, drowned rat hair look... #bloggerproblems.
It's no surprise that I love a two-piece coordinate set and this Luxemme set is no exception. I was recently contacted by the brand to showcase one of their limited edition pieces on my blog and I chose this outfit. I was drawn in by the lovely Autumnal shade of the suede and I feel I will be able to wear this a lot through the colder season too as a set or as individual pieces paired with other items from my wardrobe. This co-ord definitely has a 70's retro feel to it so I tried to play on this by pairing this look with my round frame sunnies. 
As spoken about in my last post, these Ray-Ban's are the other pair I purchased as part of their promo deal. These suit this outfit perfectly with their warm Rose-Gold tinted finish. I love this look with a tan! The shorts were on the big side for me so I cinched them in with my favourite American Apparel belt and finished the look with a flowy summery kimono.
