five to try if you have lacklustre skin.

biore 4

i'm back with one of those mystical beauty/skin care post that rolls round every once and while on here, my skin is a bit pesky so once i find a routine i like i tend to keep to it hence the lack of snazzy beauty content all the time. my skin has been a bit pesky at the moment with a dry/spotty combo so i thought i would share some products that have been busting those problems


i' m a big fan of bioderma, as is everyone but this french pharmacy staple tends to be an old faithful to many. i've been trying out their new blackhead/spot eliminating cream and it has fulfilled its promise to reduce my black heads and is great at soothing those angry red spots.

my skin has gone through quite a dry phase recently this little number has a helping bring back some life and moisture, i like to pop this on before my make up to make sure i don't have any annoying dry patches that my foundation likes to cling to, i would say don't use too much before applying make up as it can roll off a bit which i have also noticed with the la roche posay products. 

glycolic acid has been all over the interwebz recently so i obviously decided to add to it...
this serum is a great addition to my nighttime routine it evens out my complexion and contains aloe vera that adds to that soothing feeling when you apply it (so a thumbs up from me)


i have been pretty loyal to estee lauder moistures (when i can afford them) i find they never break me out, ensure my skins is hydrated all day and sit under my foundation, basically its great and i highly recommend. 

when all those other moisturisers i've just mentioned aren't quite cutting it i chuck this guy on for a bit of TLC, it does remind me that gel that boys used to wear in their hair in year 7 but once its on the skin it feels faaaaab, i like to pop it on before bed so when i make up in the morning my face feels great (not sure how many times i've said hydrated of great in this post)

bandana | ebay

boots | boden similar

my love for navy and polka dots isn't slowing down, no i don't have a problem you do... 
i realised as i walked out the door that i looked like an extra from grease which is no bad thing but at nine am in london you do get some funny looks!
i'm a big fan of the wicker basket trend making the rounds this spring, i've had this little number in my wardrobe for ages but its only make its debut on the blog now (it will make making many more, don't you worry) 

i write this one easter egg deep and my pj's thinking about moving and getting dressed, that glamorous blogging life eh?

sunglasses | ralph lauren similar

i've only recently come on board with the whole gingham trend, i've had a few dresses like this sitting in my asos basket for a while but when i saw this little cutie the other day i knew it was love, think how much food baby you can fit under that bad boy! i also got the matching top... me a problem never?
its been 'what i like to call spring' the last week in london which has been b-loody lovely, there is nothing like walking to work in the sunshine (well maybe being on a holiday in the sunshine) but i do like cracking out the old milk bottle legs when the weather allows which is a small win.

back to basics.

jeans | topshop
bag | CSC
trainers | zara similar 

there i was saying i really need to branch out from the ol' jumper and jeans combo but here we are again...
i recently managed to split my trust blue jamie jeans right up to the bum, a glamorous look as i'm sure you can all imagine, so i began the 'great jean hunt' (you all know what i mean) 
i wanted to try something different from my 'sprayed on skinny jean' usual look, i've seen liv and kim rocking the more straight leg/more relaxed kinda jeans and got a little ispo.
 so i end up back in trusty topshop upon doing a little research and come out with these bad boys, its fair to say its love.

i've kept the fact i went to india last year under my hat a little, i don't have too many tales to tell as it was a work trip so i was mainly in a car or mall but i can't resit a picture diary can i?
hoping my mum isn't reading this but i did nearly die in a tuktuk (from what i've heard everyone who visits has this brush with death) i also lost my hotel room key in a taxi for a day...

return of the lob.

anyone else really enjoying my super tenuous title, it seems my sunday brain couldn't think of anything more original....
throughout my late teens and early twenties (kinda still in my early twenties but you know until last year is what i mean) i've always had long hair, its my safety blanket, the frame for this old moon face. last year i decided enough was enough and that i would cut it because daily dreadlocks are no way to live and it frankly felt a bit ridiculous. 
i will admit i am pretty lazy when it comes to hair cuts, so it had been nine months since i went for 'the chop' and was getting the itch (not literally, that would be worrying) so get a good few inches chopped off. 
i get my hair chopping done by ian at brookes (i highly recommend if you're an essex/hertfordshire dweller) i have been going there for a mere ten years...
fun fact, i have tried to shoot this jacket three times over the last two weeks, twice i have been rained off and once i couldn't find a good location (it would be nice not to be so picky about pictures) but best laid plans and all that.
