Beach Holiday Essentials.

Our Mexican getaway has sadly come to an end, but I’ll be sharing my photos and recommendations with you all in due course! Basically once I’ve stopped shivering and sobbing about the lack of beach around here.

First up, we have to talk about this Missguided tropical-printed dress, an ASOS find...

Let’s Talk Lipstick.

If there’s one beauty product I’ve really fallen for in the last year or so, it’s lipstick! I’m really quite a minimal gal at heart, but I’ve been trying to make an effort when it comes to being adventurous with my lip colour. The lovely team at Smashbox recently gifted me the entire Be Legendary lipstick line. That’s 120 shades. One hundred and twenty. If you ever see me buy lipstick again, please have a word with me.Within the line there are 74 cream shades and 46 velvety mattes – basically everything you ever need to have the most...
