As much as I try to find myself a pair of sandals I am drawn straight to the Converse. This pair of Graffiti Chucks stood out to me because they look very easy to DIY at home, I think this could be a fun project for the weekend. You can pick up a pair of Graffiti Chucks at Free People
. Each pair will have a slight difference to them because they are all spray painted by Katie Heart in NY.
Would you prefer to DIY a pair of these or treat yourself to a ready designed pair? To be fair they do look quite fantastic and there was no mess involved but if I decide to do my own pair I will be sure to show you.
I am sticking with my thoughts from my post the other day about not worrying about the camera you are using. I took this photo with my iPhone and felt that it had captured the colour and glitter of this nail varnish well. If you have seen Bourjois 1 second nail varnish in the shop then you will know that the rainbow sparkles within it are beautiful. You need a good two layers to get a good coating of pink and glitter on your nails but I also think this looks good layered over purple and pinks. This nail varnish took around a minute to dry on each nail, it did seem quite quick. This nail varnish is meant to have a gel texture to it which I think it did and that meant it stayed on for the majority of the working week with one little top up on Friday morning. The bottle also states that the brush has a fab effect, I didn’t know this before buying it but as soon as I started to paint my nails I noticed that the brush gave an even coat to each nail.
You will see the nail varnish in action in an outfit post at the weekend.
Have you used Bourjois 1 second nail varnish before?
There has been quite
a few collaborations
knocking about in the shoe department lately. I have been considering a pair of Dr Martens for quite some time and I am now finding myself drawn towards the Liberty London
The 7 Eye Evan
is a soft and light canvas boot which is more casual and less chunky than the usual Docs you see. The worry I have had with buying a classic pair is that I am a little on the short side and I have been thinking that the canvas style could be a little softer on me.. Even though the worry of the chunky style is still there I do really like the Flower Liberty Print
8 hole boots. I think the print is beautiful and very fun for summer (if it ever arrives) and I can picture wearing these boots with a white dress.
What do you think of Liberty London for Dr.Martens?
I took part in an interview with Layezee
the other week, they asked me a few questions about fashion, photography and my bedroom for their new Best of British Bedrooms competition. If you fancy the chance of winning a £100 gift voucher from one of 4 high-street or online shops
then head over the their Facebook
page and get involved with the Best of British Bedrooms competition.
What is your favourite item in your bedroom? I think my favourite item in my room would be my desk, I spend much of my time sitting at it and typing away on my laptop.
This is a photo I snapped on my iPhone whilst I was trying to shelter from the rain in Norwich. I think it’s always good to have a camera in your bag and it really doesn’t matter what kind it is just so long as you can capture a moment. I have been carrying around a Ricoh film camera which I borrowed from my grandma, I have a black and white film in it and have really been enjoying using it. It’s quite a heavy camera so as I have had that in my bag I have just been taking my iPhone camera and my Fujifilm in my bag and leaving my 7D at home during the week.
People sometimes forget that you don’t have to have the best camera equipment to take photographs. Make use of what you have to hand and enjoy the concept of taking photographs of things that catch your eye.
I have been using three different face creams for two months now. I got a few No7 creams when the Boots 3 for 2 deal was on and I was also sent two creams to try out. I am going to be doing a review on each one and today is Doctor Renaud: Raspberry soft cream
This face cream is fantastic for anyone with very dry skin but if you have oily skin I would avoid it. My skin is very dry and those of you who also have dry skin will know how pleasing it is to use a face cream which keeps your face moisturised for long periods of time. I have used many creams which just don’t moisturise my skin for longer than half an hour and I end up having to apply more. With Raspberry soft cream my face feels beautifully smooth and full of moisture from the moment I apply it and lasts throughout the day. It’s rare that I have to apply any more during the day but because the packaging is very light and a good size and shape to keep in a handbag I always have it there just in case. I have used it as a hand cream from time to time and as you can imagine it is very good but I have to wait a few minutes before typing on my keyboard again.
Price: £24.95 – 50ml
- I still have just under half a tube of this face cream left and I have been using it for around one month in total. I have also been using a variety of creams in the evening so this has stuck to being my morning cream. I also use this as a hand cream from time to time so it’s worth keeping that in mind. I think that this is going to last in total for just over two months and I don’t think that is a bad price to pay when you know it’s going to really look after your skin. This is a cream which I would be more inclined to buy at times when I know my skin is going to be very dry.
I personally find that it’s always good to have more than one cream to use during the summer months because big changes in the weather can cause my skin to become more dry. I buy a wide price range of make up and beauty products, it just depends on how much I feel I can spend during that certain month.
This cream can be purchased via the website.
The best thing about this cream is that although it is very thick and leaves your skin lovely and soft it isn’t greasy at all. It can be hard to find a non greasy yet very thick and intensive face cream but Doctor Renaud has the solution with Raspberry soft cream. I highly recommend this for those of you with very dry skin.
