What I Wore To Brighton

 If I have to pick my favourite city in England, it has to be Brighton! I went there in 2010 and I went there again yesterday just for the day! And I absolutely LOVE Brighton.

People here are friendly, stylish, colourful and so creative. I don't think I could ever get bored in Brighton; there is so much to do and see!

I tried to see and soak in as much as I could in one day and here is the outfit that I wore to Brighton.  

Happy styling xx

Indian Skin & Rimmel London Wake Me Up Foundation : My Thoughts

I am beginning this blog post with a disclaimer that I am not a makeup artist neither an expert; as mentioned in a previous post I am starting a new make up journey and after getting my Real Techniques brushes together, I went for the ever popular Rimmel London Wake Me Up Foundation.

Now, it is a bit of a struggle matching foundations & concealers here in the UK if you have warm/ olive toned skin! Is it just me or its very overwhelming selecting the right shade? Let me know! Anyhow, I went for the shade 200 soft beige and I think it's a pretty decent match.

I am not a full coverage kinda gal so this works for me - light to medium coverage that you can build up. I use about 1 & a half pump, then buff it in with my Real techniques buffing brush. The trick is to take your time with the buffing.

SPF 15 makes it ideal for day time wear. The foundation has tiny flecks of subtle shimmer that don't really show up in photographs. And I really love the brightening and illuminating effect this has on the skin.

Budget buy
SPF 15
Light to medium coverage
Radiant glow

Limited shades available if you are medium to warm toned
Not Full coverage- If full coverage is what you desire then you have to slather on a lot of the product which in my opinion is never a good idea.

If she's a living-on-the-edge fashionista, this tote might just be for her! Beware though this design is not for the faint hearted ;)

If your girl likes classic designs go for the Cedar Street Joyce bag. It is not a typical red, so definitely not a cliche.
