It has been an emotional rollercoaster lately here on ‘The Sweetest Life’. I’ve been talking about Ellenah growing up so fast, the pressure around Noah’s SATs and the possibility that he will be leaving me overnight for his Beavers sleepover. So, I thought I would change things up a little bit today and turn up the happy. It may seem materialistic of sorts but today I wanted to share some of my latest beauty loves. I have been trying a couple of new things lately and rediscovering some pieces in my collection…so I thought that because ‘sharing is caring’, I would whip out my camera with my pretty new lens and share them with you.
This is a new purchase which I have been absolutely loving. I’m not going to pretend to know the science of make-up but I do know that this looks really pretty on my skin. My skin has felt very dehydrated lately and I have struggled finding the right routine between moisturising, serums and my make-up base. I feel like I’m on to a winner with this one and it was only about £7. I replaced my Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation and my Bourjois 123 Perfect Foundation with this one and that feels like quite a big deal for me. They have been firm favourites and worth their weight in gold in the past but I’m excited about the Match Perfection going forward. It is so moisturising, goes on so lightly and gives a buildable coverage. I would definitely recommend.
This is an oldie but a goldie. It leaves a beautiful light, rosey gold flush over the apples of my cheeks and doubles up as a highlighter. It is perfect for the Spring/Summer season and is definitely a staple in my make-up bag. One that I will buy over again.
I love applying a little spritz of this every morning. It smells so beautiful with top notes of guava and pear and base notes of musk, honey and patchouli. It is a very sensual and feminine scent and acts perfectly as a little confidence boost. It makes me feel like a grown up.
As I mentioned, I have struggled with my skincare lately. I have felt an obvious change in my skin. I have naturally oily skin but I can feel how dehydrated it has become. In my mission to find something suitable, I came across this little gem. It smells gorgeous and very relaxing which I really like. It is quite thick in consistency but applies so nicely, my skin literally drinks it up. Rather than a simple moisturiser, this feels more like a hydrating night mask perhaps as it feels fairly tacky on the skin. By the morning however, I am left with super soft, smooth skin that feels youthful and plump. What more could I want?
Primark Oversize Sunglasses
I absolutely adore wearing these lately, which I am pleased to say has been quite often because the sun has been out. They were around £3 from Primark, which is such a bargain. I have awfully sensitive eyes to sunlight and these are definitely big enough to keep it out and to keep me looking chic rather than a squinty mess. Such a find!
Primark Rose Gold Rings
These are super cute. I’m usually quite plain in my accessories but I have really enjoyed dressing up my fingers with these. There is a lovely mix of normal and midi rings and the whole bunch only cost around £2.50. I think they are really pretty.
Ellenah and I went to buy fresh flowers last Sunday. We chose lillies and tulips… The lillies smell beautiful but the tulips are so colourful. It’s so lovely to have them brightening up our dining table. The light that comes in from the back of the house glows over them and they have just transformed our home this past week. I love having fresh flowers in the house.
