An Afternoon at Thomas’s

An Afternoon at Thomas’s

As the day in London consisted mainly of shopping and store visits for my current project we decided to eat somewhere different, and Thomas’s Burberry café did not disappoint.

The menu was filled with rich food, from lobster to afternoon tea and many other selections that catered most luncheon cravings.

The food presentation was beautifully served, with small touches that made the luncheon feel even more special than my normal lunch time. Well for me anyway!

Thomas’s café itself was spacious and elegant and held the ongoing Burberry theme. The staff were amazing making sure there was a high level of silver service.

The drink selection catered for all of your delicacies from champagne to a variety of wines and a range of spirits.

The Summer of bareMinerals

The Summer of bareMinerals

bareMinerals is my go to makeup because it works great with sensitive skin and doesn’t dry my skin out. This is my basic summer kit for still looking fresh and ready to dance the night away !

BB

Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense SPF 30

The Primer is great for protecting your skin with its SPF 30 protection in the formula as it gives you a defence against the sun. Also the BB cream is tinted so before you apply your foundation it reduces the appearance of uneven skin tone and imperfections.

I find the primer to be creamy and a great base for my foundation, being a very fair person having the tinted primer helps with the fact that I don’t need to apply lots of foundation afterwards.

wr

Well-Rested Face and Eye Brightener

I personally use the face and eye brightener to cover the inner corner and under the eyes to get rid of dark circles, you can also use the product to brighten up your complexion to give it a fresh face glow.

MATTE SPF 15 Foundation

The Matte foundation is long lasting and gives an even coverage that looks natural and doesn’t feel clumpy or cakey. I am a regular user of this foundation and haven’t used anything else in years, it doesn’t affect my skin or dry it out.

Full Flawless Application Face Brush

The versatile Flawless brush feels medium soft on the skin, I personally have softer brushes which I prefer because there not as scratchy.

bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 4.0

bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 2.0

I have had the rosy gold selection from bareMinerals for a while and have really got into using it, using it a lot over the summer I’ve found that their eye shadows can create multiple looks and are long lasting making your eyes even more defining.

However they don’t have the same packaging (as shown in the photographs) anymore, but it you click on the names of the products it will take you to the bareMinerals page where you can choose your own shades.

August 6’s

August 6’s

July has been and gone and now it’s August, so here are a few of my favourite items or things this month.

SS

1.  Suicide Squad. 

I have waited to see this movie since last year, and it was so worth the wait. It was completely amazing and exceeded my expectations.

It was totally badass….

Check out the soundtrack because it is mint !

Watch

2.  Apple Watch 

So this week I bought an Apple Watch and I love it.

The product is convenient, easy to keep you updated on the go, and useful.

It’s a watch to the extreme.

Jacket

3.  Urban Renewal Vintage Surplus Black Harrington Jacket 

So over the past couple of months, I wanted a jacket that I could throw on and wear, look stylish and one that would match most of my collection.

I know bomber jackets are in but I wanted something slightly different.

So last week ladies and gentlemen I have found it…

This Harrington jacket from Urban Outfitters not only looks great, it’s an easy jacket to pair with outfits and it’s also renewal fashion.

Vogue

4.  Fashion’s September Issues 

This month the fashion magazines release the September issues, these are the ones that release what to wear for next season.

Brow

5.  L’OREAL Brow Artist Shaper 

I bought the Brow Artist Shaper because it’s easy to use and has two sides. One where you can fill in your eyebrows, or two just shape them if you’re running late or can’t be bothered but still need to do something with them.

Vest

6.  Sunshine Yellow Vest Top

It’s a small item but it brightens up my wardrobe for the summer.

Hope everyone enjoyed the post and is having a great summer ! 🙂

Loving Wireless Festival

I Wanna Be Apart Of It, New York, New York !

I Wanna Be Apart Of It, New York, New York !

Personally, I love to travel and experience new cities and countries. So I was fortunate enough to visit the one and only New York, the city that never sleeps.

As many of you who have visited New York, would know it is not a relaxing city break. However, it is a trip that is worth every penny !

For me, the city was extremely busy filled with workers, tourists, and the cities residents. However, the place was friendly enough dealing with the amount of tourist flowing through the streets.

When visiting New York, you want to see as much as you can, such as all the well known places to visit as Wall Street, Central Park, The Rockafella, Grand Central Station, Times Square, Little Itlay, China Town, Battery Park, Federal Hall, Empire State Building, Broadway, Crysler Building and many more.

I would truly recommend buying a travel guide and pre-plan what you want to get out of your visit, but get one that is full of tips and has the metro line map because its quick and easy to get around New York.

When visiting myself I managed to see all of the above and more, for myself I wanted to visit the well-known department store Macy’s, plus Greenwich Village and experience one of the sports games from the New York Yankees. Also, eat at the Hard Rock Cafe and discover the Shake Shack ! Having a picture next to the charging Bull, and then sailing away from the city towards home…

As a huge city lover, New York is a massive recommendation it’s got the buzz, it’s busy and there is always something going on, which is one of the many things I love.

After visiting the city for over a week it did not disappoint my expectations, and I would definitely go there again.

Comment below and give tips and advice to anyone going to visit the city. And enjoy your trip ! I certainly did. 🙂

The first book of the series is called Legend, which is about two different lives that meet by chance and know nothing about each other. However, one character killed the other persons brother, and that person is out for revenge.

Night Owls by Jenn Bennett, is a really cute and amazing summer read. Its got humor, romance and is a unique moving novel.

The book is about a girl called Beatrix meeting a charming and wildy attractive boy named Jack on the night bus. Her world gets turned upside down as she and Jack learn more about each other.

Beautiful Disaster By Jamie McQuire, is a must have read, its got it all, from the good girl and bad boy and a imminent disaster. It one of my favourites books, and the rest of the series is just as good ! Its one I read all the time because it’s timeless and addictive.

There are lots of new and exciting books coming out this summer for intance the new Games of Thrones book which I’ll be getting my hands on. At the moment I’m currently reading the the stylist so I’ll update you with a review once I have finished it.

If you like the Games of Thrones series then Prince of Thorns is a must read
