The EcoTools Bamboo Kabuki Brush is my new favourite 'finishing' and 'blending' brush. I use between every layer of make-up (after foundation, after concealer, after bronzer, after blusher, after powder) to ensure the makeup is completely blended and worked thoroughly into the skin. It's SO soft and light and when used with product (I use with bronzer and with blot powder) it leaves the lightest, sheerest finish The contoured bamboo handle gives you an easy grip which is an added bonus.
This Monki tee is the perfect mix of style, attitude and comfort and the tee has a laid-back look to it without being dramatically oversized and baggy. I paired it with pink high waisted topshop shorts and my favourite ASOS Amp Chelsea boots – this outfit is so casual and loose fitting I needed to avoid looking like an overgrown eight year old - hence the addition of the killer boots.

Earlier tonight I headed down to the stunning St Pancreas Renaissance Hotel where the equally stunning Kim Kardashian was launching QuickTrim - the weight management product that she is the face and body of. Kim donned a tight-fitting black dress with cutaway mesh panels and was sporting her signature smoky eyes paired with significantly shorter locks and I was blown away by how beautiful she looked in the flesh.
The Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish is a true beauty phenomenon and has won over 80 awards, accolades and mentions all over the bloggersphere! It is now officially the most revolutionary beauty product of the last 20 years, with recently-celebrated awards from CEW (UK) and The Sunday Times Style - Congratulations Liz Earle!

I’m a die-hard Batiste fan and have been for years. There are lots of dry shampoos popping up but none compete with Batiste in terms of performance and price! I always have a few cans in my bathroom and I’ve tried nearly all of the variations and have concluded that the ‘Wild’ version is my favourite.

When I was little I always asked why Rachel from Friends looked so perfect all the time and why didn't I look like that. My mum explained over and over again that there was a hair and makeup artist on set to fix her appearance every time so much as a hair fell out of place and that how people looked on TV 'wasn't realistic'. It took me a long, long time to realise that the images we see in the media are truly an illusion and even now I find myself sometimes feeling depressed as I flick through glossy magazines or am sat in my PJs watching an episode of The Kardashians, at the fact everyone looks goddamn picture-perfect-all-the-time.

bareMinerals READY Bronzers and Blushers
As a huge fan of both bareminerals and bronzers I squeeled with delight when I heard the news of their first forray into solid makeup which still retains the healthy mineral aspect of their loose powder sisters. bareMinerals READY Bronzer buffs on rich golden bronze colour for a beautifully even, buildable glow. Powered by their exclusive SeaNutritive Minerac Complex with antioxidants and cold-pressed carrot oil, this silky long-wearing formula delivers incredible anti-aging benefits. Solid mineral colour lasts for up to 8 hours. The bronzers are £24 each and come in three shades and the blushers, which look equally as delectable, come in 10 gorgeous shades and retail for £22.
