March Haul

This month I've had a bit of a splurge so I thought I would do a haul post. Also I have lighted the reading column so it's not so purple, hopefully it will be much more readable now.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette

 These powders give such a lovely highlight to the face. I love using them on the high points of my face.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Mood Exposure 

A lovely coloured blush. On my skin tone just right for summer.

Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer

I was a little hesitant about buying this as I have dry skin but actually it's not too drying on my skin and since my foundations are more of the moisturising type it helps to not look over greasy or shiny.

I bought all of my Hourglass products from Liberty London.

Laura Mercier Flawless Contouring Palette

When I saw this, I knew I had to buy it. I had always wanted to try cream contour and this looked like the perfect palette. Unfortunately, it was mostly sold out everywhere; luckily, I managed to get one from Harrods. It is a lovely contour palette.

Chanel CC Cream

I love Chanel foundations, they are the right colour on me and my skin seems to like them. So when I saw that Chanel had bought out their CC creams and this time there were a few shade choices I had to buy it. When it was first launched, it was in a universal shade that didn't suit my skin tone. It is a tad too light for me but I wear a bit of my Laura Mercier powder foundation on top and it looks so natural. Also it has SPF 50 in it, which is perfect since it's been nice and sunny in England.

Chloe Elsie Mini Shoulder/Camera Bag in Terracotta Pink

This bag is such a perfect colour for Spring/Summer. I also really liked this one because it has the leather strap and not the chain one. It's beautiful.

Louis Vuitton Medium Ring (MM) Agenda Cover in Monogram

I had been eyeing a LV agenda for a while. I usually always buy the Hello Kitty ones but they always fall apart after a year for me and I really wanted a nice leather one. I did have a lovely classic leather Filofax before but I have no idea where it is. I think it was misplaced somewhere when I was moving and I have never been able to find it. So anyway, I did look up quite a few reviews of the LV agendas and immediately could see that the PM was too small and the GM size was too big. It is beautiful and I am so happy I bought it. It is however expensive so I really had to do my research into buying one before I did. I will do more of an in depth post once I have set my planner they way I like it. I am still waiting for my dividers to come from Esty since I didn't get the LV inserts.

Assorted Washi tape

I am not really into over the top decorating my agenda but I did buy some Washi tape and a few stickers to decorate with. I got these ones from Amazon and they are decent quality.

An instagram haul

OMG, I have not blogged since December! Anyway, I thought I would share with you a few things I have bought over the past few months. The pictures are from my Instagram. I actually like this display more than how blogger displays import photos so will be using this more.
For my Birthday in May, my mother and I went on our annual mother and daughter holiday and this year I decided to go to Russia. It was such a beautiful country. The palaces in Saint Petersburg! Oh my goodness, I loved it. We did a River Cruise so from Saint Petersburg to Moscow with stops at a few small villages. I loved it. Anyway since I was there, I thought for my birthday I would treat myself to a bag I had wanted for ages, the Lady Dior bag. I love this bag so much, it oozes class and it an elegant, classic piece. It’s in lambskins so I have to be very careful with it but it’s such a beauty. I didn’t get the patent leather though as I found it’s too difficult to open the bag (also heard a lot from reviews not to g…

Touche Éclat Foundation & Anti-Cernes Concealer review

I had always wanted to try the Touche Éclat Foundation. I have seen so many beauty bloggers rave about this product, however I resisted for a while because I love my Chanel Vitalumière Aqua. However, after I came back from holiday, I had tanned so I decided rather than buying one shade darker in the Chanel foundation, I would try out the new YSL one.

I went to John Lewis and the lady colour matched me, I went with one shade lighter than she suggested because on my skin any type of foundation oxidises so much and leaves my skin dull.

Initial thoughts, I love how it made my skin look. My skin looked healthy and slightly dewy but not oily (I have dry skin). It doesn't feel like you are wearing anything at all. It is a very light coverage but still does even out your skin tone. I am not sure I would wear it for a night out but I love wearing it in the day. Doesn't streak and blends beautifully. I use a Real Techniques Expert face brush to apply it. I didn't particular notice any…

Luxury haul ft Chanel, Christian Louboutin and Tiffany & Co

I have been very lucky of the past few months to buy some lovely luxury designer items and so I thought I would do a post of what I have bought.
Chanel Mini navy blue wallet bag with small purse

I really wanted the Chanel WOC and so when my mum and I went to Florence on our cruise holiday I decided to go into the Chanel store and see if they had it. They did and so the lady showed me the WOC and this one. Now I personally thought I would go for the WOC, as it was black with gold hardware and this one was in navy blue. I fell in love with this one. It's in patent calf leather, navy blue in colour and with silver hardware. It is beautiful. It also comes with a small purse inside. I don't actually know the name of this one and I did try to search for it. Anyway, it has a small chain and a zip compartment inside. It can fit quite a bit in! Also it is very resilient and doesn't scratch easily.I am very ashamed though that this is my fourth Chanel bag. I remember when my dream wa…
