Favourite Things

Favourite lip products

- I am cursed with chapped lips, this coupled with my anxious lip biting leads to some pretty unattractive lips. I have however, found a mix of products that I love and have really worked for me and my desert lips.  Nuxe RĂªve de Mie is a perfect nighttime savior. It is heavy, so it really isn't the best for day to day wear unless you are conservative with the application. Homeoplasmine is a french product I picked up in Paris after some blog searching. It doubles as a talking point as it is also nipple cream (apparently). It is the best nipple cream I have ever had on my face. I have no idea how it works but it is the quickest and most effective fix I have found for my lips. Finally Smith's Rosebud Salve is the perfect every day one. Lightweight, pretty smell and a slight hint of colour. Just make sure it doesn't melt in your bag, but if it did I could relate to you.

My favourite guy graduated in July on the only day in Glasgow to not rain and be above 20 degrees. In a 100% wool kilt and robe he was a happy-hot bunny. I am very proud of this little hard worker who graduated with a distinction in Chemical Engineering. I am slightly bitter knowing his first wage though.

Bag- & Other Stories

I am into mini bags. I have always been a big bag kinda girl- just in case I saw an abandoned puppy and needed to carry it to the vet (my house), but there is something intensively satisfying about not having to sift through a sea of receipts and bobby pins to find my phone. With a mini bag you have to rationalise the junk you carry around on a daily basis. I attribute my new better posture to mini bags- no longer am I dragged down by a bag full of every lipstick I own.

Drink up Baby Doll

I bought this dress for my boyfriends Graduation Ball (I will never go for a long, shiny, polyester, fitted dress with diamonds on it for Prom/ Dances). This dress is fancy but not too fancy that you couldn't wear it again. I feel like Betty Draper but with less perfect hair, I love the old fashion silhouette and style. It's a classic. Check out the ASOS Salon collection, it's all kinds of pretty, perfect for those summer wedding outfits.

I am heading off to Croatia this weekend for two weeks of burning, hopefully when I return I will feel a bit more inspired to blog and pose for the camera- I have been pulling a lot of ugly faces in my last few attempts to take pictures.

Wind it up

( Clock silk blouse: Vintage, Two tone pleated skirt: H&M Trend, Shoulder bag: River Island, Sunglasses: Celine) #teenvogue

This feels like the most hypocritical post ever. I spent my Friday afternoon volunteering to cut these trees down and promptly returned on Saturday to pose next to them. I don't like hypocrites so let's move on to (I think) my cheapest vintage purchase from the "5 Euro store" in Le Marais in Paris. 5 Euros well spent while my boyfriend queued for my falafel.I miss you Paris. For the food and cheap vintage.
