Currently loving...

Hello long time no speak! Firstly sorry for the lack of regular posts recently. Unfortunately real life took over, and what with long hours at work, commuting between Kent and London and travelling to New York last week, Peonies and lilies ended up being rather neglected. I'm determined to get things back on track though, starting today with a quick round up of 3 new favourites:

Currently loving...

The original version has become quite the cult classic, but in my opinion, the new Clinique dramatically different moisturizing lotion plus is even better. The addition of hylauronic acid means it's super hydrating (even without an additional serum) and there's urea for extra barrier protection too. Compared to the original, I find this version lighter and more easily absorbed. It still takes a few minutes to fully sink in, but once it does, it keeps my skin nicely hydrated and it works well under make up. A must have for my morning routine!

Pixi soft focus fresh palette

As you may know, I love my girly pink blushers and neutral eyeshadows making Pixi soft focus fresh my ideal palette. As always with Pixi, the powders are soft and buttery, but still pigmented and easy to work with. Because I wear my blushers quite light, I usually need to top up after lunch, however the eyeshadows were nice and long lasting. There are 4 lipglosses too, which completes the look nicely. A versatile palette thats great for both work and travelling.

popband, popband hair tye

I regularly tie my hair up during the day, however traditional hairbands can be both unslightly and leave elastic marks when I wear them on my wrist. Which is why these Popbands have become such a favourite. The wider width means it doesn't leave any kinks in my hair, there are no tight marks on my arm either. They come in packs of 5, which is quite handy as I usually have one on my arm, a few in my bag and the rest at work. They come with beaded jewels too, and I've currently got tickle me pink and minted saved on my wishlist!

Have you tried any of these three products? What have you been loving recently?


  1. I've seen a lot of people using those hair ties. Reading your post makes me want to try some for myself now. Thanks. =D x

  2. I really like the look of the Pixi palette. It contains some gorgeous looking shades :) Raspberrykiss xo

  3. I really want to try those hair ties, I recently cut a fair bit off my hair and regular hair bands leave a dent in my hair that looks so silly now I don't have as much length!

  4. That Clinique moisturiser sounds so good. I've wanted to buy it for years. Now that they have a lighter version, maybe I should just go for it :)

  5. Love the hair ties, they double up as a cute wrist accessory too x
