I MEGA love these shoes. It feels like I am bouncing along in my slippers and I love the extra height. The Adidas Superstar Rize is a flatform version of the classic Adidas Superstar trainer. I prefer it to the original style as it’s an updated look and gives me an inch or two extra in height.
“My Favourite Red Lippy.” Perfect for the festive season. Lulu Williams – Red Lipstick – Blogger Review.
A pop of colour on the lip is always a good idea through the festive season. Whether you’re scoffing sufganiyot at a Hunnakah party, or sipping champagne at a Christmas bash, do it with a slick of red lippy.
I have tried lots of red lipsticks this year, and I have finally discovered my favourite – Read My Lips by Teeez Cosmetics. I found MAC to be drying, Rimmel to fade too quickly and Barry M to smudge too easily. Read My Lips by Teeez Cosmetics is easy to apply as it has a sharp curved edged. I applied it at 8am and by lunchtime – 1 snack and 3 cups of tea later – it is still in full swing.

Do you like gin? I do.
Mother’s Ruin Gin Palace in Walthamstow is one to visit when you fancy a glass of something delish.
I had a plum brandy, which tasted like – what I imagine – fairies drink. It was delicately sweet, with just the right amount of fruitiness. What also made me fall in love with it was the colour – a very gentle plum pink. Divine!
Next door to Mother’s Ruin Gin Palace in Walthamstow is God’s Own Junkyard.
God’s Own Junkyard is a great place to spend a Sunday afternoon browsing. There is now a cafe called The Rolling Scones at the back of it too, so you can refuel once taking in all the fab light art. God’s Own Junkyard is filled with vintage neon signs and art. Chris Bracey’s family still produces neon art.
Visit what we call “Tiny House” on Wood Street in Wathamstow
I dont actually know if it’s someones house or a lock-up or what, however it’s a small scale “Tiny House” which is awesome for a spur of the moment photo, comme ça…
The Nuxe 24 hour soothing and rehydrating fresh mask was behind the first door of my YOU Beauty Discovery advent calendar yesterday. What a great beauty product to find as the weather has just become incredibly cold. It’s time to focus on hydrating and moisturising the skin over the next four months. This is a good allrounder as it’s perfect for all skin types.
Firstly I soaked my face in warm water, then thoroughly exfoliated. I then applied the Nuxe rehydrating face mask and left for ten minutes. After washing the mask off I noticed an almost instant softness to my skin.
This morning my skin looked fresh and hydrated. I will continue to use and recommend this product. Buy yours here: https://uk.nuxe.com/creme-fraiche-de-beaute/creme-fraiche-de-beaute-mask-fresh-moisturising-and-soothing-for-24hrs-intensive-moisture-de-stresses-tube-50-ml-en-345

Lush Avobath Bath Bomb Review. Avobath Bath Bomb Is Made With Bergamot, Lemongrass, Avocado & Olive Oil.
Whilst browsing in Lush over the weekend it was the smell of the Avobath bath bomb that caught my attention. It was dreamily refreshing in an aromatherapy sort of way. The look of the Avobath bath bomb is very simple compared to the other bath bombs available at Lush Cosmetics, it was that smell that I knew I had to take home with me. To try one yourself click here – you won’t regret it!
I saved my bath bomb for one of my 5am baths. Achey and half asleep I stepped in to my lovely warm bath. Ready, steady, go! I launched the pistachio green bath bomb in the water. FIZZZZZZZZZ. It whirred round the tub releasing the gorgeously relaxing scent I had first been attracted to. The water felt softer too and turned green!
After my bath I noticed my skin was super soft. This is due to the olive oil and avocado in the bath bomb. The smells of bergamot and lemongrass gently woke me up. What a treat! At £3.35 per Avobath bath bomb, it really is worth trying one. I think you’re going to like it!
I find it impossible to walk past a Lush shop without going in, so on a recent visit to Westfield in Shepherd’s Bush I slipped in to Lush and treated myself to a pot of Lush’s Cup O’Coffee exfoliating face mask. It contains roasted cocoa extract, vetivert and coriander oil to create an addictive fragrance and leave your skin gorgeously soft. Coffee ice cream, coffee cake, a mug of coffee, iced coffee – I love them all, so when seeing this little pot of fresh coffee smelling goop I knew I had to try it.
How To Use
Wash your face with warm water, making sure it’s make-up free. Apply a 50p size blob to each side of your face and circulate with your fingers, allowing the grittiness to exfoliate your skin.
Apply to the lower and upper areas of your face to, avoiding the eye area. Then apply to the upper neck, chin and jaw area and exfoliate here too.
Let the face mask sit for 15 minutes. I recommend wearing a fantastically sparkly bath hat in this time firstly to keep the face mask out of your hair and secondly for extra awesomeness.
Another excellent thing to do in this 15 minutes is listen to Bob Marley’s record “One Cup Of Coffee.” Very relative, don’t you think? Whilst wearing the sparkly hat is the perfect combination.
After 15 mins wash the face mask off with warm water and a flannel, then stand back and admire your stunningly soft and supple skin.
Thank you Wojtek for making my lovely face mask!
Markus Lupfer SS16 Spring Summer 2016 at London Fashion Week LFW September 2015. Catwalk/Runway Show at Horse Guards Avenue. Fashion Blogger.
The emperor of attention to detail, Markus Lupfer did not disappoint when it came to venue, props and decoration at his spring / summer 2016 collection show at London Fashion Week. Inspired by a Mexican desert, Lupfer filled the room with lone standing flowers. Simple, yet hugely effective. The collection was compiled of beautiful shift dresses, bomber jackets and stunning separates; with dominant monochrome colour-ways. Floral designs on the textiles complimented the room’s temporary design. I throughly enjoyed the lucha libre – mexican wrestlers embellished on the clothes. There is always something unusual in Markus Lupfer’s collections that makes me smile.
