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 ...

Essentials: Lip Balm

You know the question, one beauty essential you would take on a desert island? It's a hard question to answer if you're a beauty addict, but after a lot of attention, mine would be lip balm. It's an essential and I would go as far as to say I can't live without it (total overstatement) but nobody wants dry lips right? Being a lip balm obsessive, I can honestly say I have one in reach at all times and over the years, I've tried more than just a few, so I wanted to share my current faves.

If you like your lip balm in a tube, my go-to is the Frank Body Lip Balm, it's petroleum free and hydrates your lips for hours - I actually use it as a lip gloss. Next is Lush Rose Lollipop - it's the perfect size to keep in your bag/car/desk, or pretty much anywhere you want to fix your pout. The scent is dreamy and it leaves your lips super soft. Finally, Eve Lom Kiss Mix is a must-have for luxe lips, it's everything you want in a lip balm and it's a great base under lipstick.

If you're looking for a new lip balm to try, definitely pick one of these up and let me know your essential lip balm ...

The Lust List: April

Pouch | Lipgloss | Top | Sandals | Book | Necklace

Next month I am heading to Jersey for a couple of nights and it being my first trip this year, naturally I've been thinking about travel and holidays. As a result, April's lust list is mostly things I would love to pack in my case.

I am still obsessed with knot details, they look so chic and this cute sun top and sandals would be perfect for night with a pair of ankle grazer trousers. I have been loving my Nars Piree lipgloss the last few weeks, it's a really flattering rosy pink tone and the perfect pink for Spring. Pearls are my all time favourite and this necklace is an on trend way to wear the gem (if you haven't checked out Estella Bartlett you need to.) I have recently been enjoying the Eat Pretty book by Jolene Heart, I am trying really hard to change my diet and this is a really refreshing read. Finally, you can't go away without something to store all your beauty essentials in and this little pouch is perfect with its 'get out of town' quote.

I hope you like April's edit - as always, let me know what's on your lust list this month.

Dior Poison Girl

Last week my boyfriend and I celebrated 7 years together and as a little gift he bought me the latest fragrance from Dior - Poison Girl. I have loved Dior for as long as I can remember and so naturally I wanted to try the new fragrance as soon as the launch was announced … and I can honestly say I have a new addiction.

Scent has the power to transport us back to a moment in time, allowing us to recall a memory or emotion and the reason the gift was so special, is because when my boyfriend and I met, Pure Poison (Poison Girl's older sister) was my go to fragrance and it's something that will always remind me of the first memories I have of us. Although Poison Girl is a bitter-sweet floral compared to the more musky composition of Pure Poison, it still carried me back to 2009.

Anyway, back to Dior's latest launch, the fragrance is a dream. 'Poison Girl is immediately recognisable, it's an uncompromising signature.' The perfumer's words are so true. With top notes of bitter orange, heart notes of rose and base notes of almond and vanilla, the fragrance is alluring and perfect for the modern-day girl - it will definitely become my new signature fragrance and be another Dior scent that will have me reminiscing of me and my love.
