National Making Life Beautiful Day

One of my favourite french sayings is 'la vie est belle' which translates to 'life is beautiful' and as today is National Making Life Beautiful Day, it got me thinking - what does make life beautiful?

You can't deny beauty is all around; nature, design, art, a person - the list can go on and on when discussing what is referred to as beautiful, the word is so complex, it holds endless meanings - beauty is in the eye of the beholder after all. What makes something beautiful is a personal thing and it's up to you to define the beauty in your life and your everyday. When I really stop and think about what makes life beautiful to me, it's not about appearance, extravagance or the finer things (although don't get me wrong I find I am always saying something is beautiful) but for me, what is truly beautiful is in the everyday - it's the little things, the moments in between the seconds that you wish you could capture and replay. So while I notice beauty everyday, from flowers, to the detail of a dress, real beauty and what is beautiful is a feeling - and there's something pretty beautiful about that.

I'd love to know what makes life beautiful for you so let me know in the comments :)

The Lust List: June

Earrings | Eyeshadow | Top | Candle | Shoes | Face Mist

It's June already, I mean really how has this happened?! Anyway, a few days out in the sun means my lust list for June is all about sun-kissed beauty, easy to wear Summer basics and dreamy scents.

I like to keep my jewellery minimal and this pair of earrings from Daisy are so cute - I love the vine leaf design. Recently I have really been getting into wearing eyshadow and the Nars Dual Intensity range is my go to - this bronzy shade in Dione is perfect to compliment an effortless sun-kissed look. Cold shoulder tops are really having a moment and this nude jersey one from Topshop is a steal at under £20 - wear it all Summer long, especially paired with leather knot sandals for laid-back cool. Finally, a couple of trips to Space NK and the Diptyque Rosafolia candle keeps stealing my attention. I also picked up the Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist and it's a must to give your skin a hydration fix.

Have a lovely month and tell me what's on your lust list for Summer!

The Lust List: May

The welcome additions of a cloudless blue sky and bright sun the past couple of days have got me well and truly dreaming of Summer and I think my lust list for May pretty much reflects that ...

You can't go into Summer without a pair of statement sunglasses and yet again, Warehouse are impressing me with a pair of marbled d shape frames. Summer means a new perfume and top of my list is Soleil Blanc by Tom Ford. It's literally Summer in a bottle - I can't actually explain what a dream it is - you just have to go and try it yourself. I recently bought this crepe boho inspired dress and I'm beyond obsessed (the charcoal grey looks great against sun-kissed skin) and paired with white mule boots it's the perfect look for Summer in the city. Missoma prove it's still all in the details and my favourite is the horn ring, although I pretty much want the whole range right now. Lastly, if you haven't heard of Kevin Murphy I am happy to introduce you (your hair can thank me later) the Hair Resort Spray is a must for those beautiful beach waves I always try to attempt this time of year.

Enjoy May and let me know what's on your lust list ...

Lush Rosy Cheeks

It would be fair to say I am obsessed with Lush - I pretty much can't go past without walking in and buying something. I'm a huge fan of their skincare, a few products are now staples in my daily routine, so when they bring out something new, I can't wait to discover a new favourite; and Lush Rosy Cheeks is exactly that. 

Firstly, any beauty product rose related has my attention. Secondly, I actually suffer with redness on my cheeks and so I knew right away this was for me - and I have completely fallen in love. The face mask is a lovely product to calm the skin and restore balance thanks to it's blend of Turkish rose oil, kaolin and calamine.

I have been using it twice a week over the past 14 days and have quickly noticed a real improvement to both the look and feel of my skin. For under £7 a pot, it is definitely worth trying if your skin is in need of some tlc, and let's face it, around this time of year our skin is crying out for it thanks to a mix of colder weather and central heating.

Have you tried anything new from Lush recently?
