A week in Normandy - A picture tale

Normandy in North of France is my birth place, I only lived there until the age of 10. Normandy is for that reason very close to my heart and if my partner and I were to move to France in years to come we'll most likely choose Normandy. For the beautiful countryside, the beaches, the food, all the cottages, cows fields and the way of life in general. I just love Normandy and anything related to it. For my summer holiday we went to spend just under a week in Normandy to spend some time with my family. Spending time with my love one, visiting breathtaking landscapes and eating my weight on amazing food (especially cheeses and famous patisseries from Normandy) was amazing! Here a little picture tale of my too short trip hoping that it will inspire you to go one day.

#bloggersball 2016

Back in mid June (I will explain why I haven't post for many weeks in a future post) with a lot of excitement and anticipation I went to the #bloggersball event, which was the second event I've been to from the very talented Scarlett_London who...wait for it... organised it all by herself so two thumbs up for her!! My last event by her was the #BloggersFestival back in September last year. This year the event was held at the very glamorous and glitzy Dstrkt in West End London hence the blogging event tittle which I have to say suits it perfectly. Of course Scarlett pulled out all the stops as she really wanted to make us feel and look very special at this exclusive venue.

Tonsee Pro Oval Brush | Review

I have seen lately, and I am sure you too, a new trend in the brush alley going around and they are those oval type brushes and as you may know when I start getting more and more curious about something I have to satisfy this curiosity and get one to try it for myself. After a little search I came across Tonsee Pro Oval Brush brand which had great reviews at a very affordable price as I didn't want to break the bank for something that is still very new. So without hesitation I got the foundation Tonsee Pro Oval brush as I though it was the perfect starting point.

It's Official NYX landed in Boots

Yes you heard well! Finally NYX has landed in Boots and its with my arms open wide that I welcome this brand fully to the old British land. I mean the truth is that really I didn't need an other amazing brand to be hooked on but how can I not love them when their lipstick collection goes from matte, to suede, to glossy, to creamy and all the nudes you may wish for to very dark shades! Yes the love is real and yes I am officially hooked.
So after trying to hunt down a branch of Boots that I could get my hands on some NYX products its with delight that I found the stand with the widest number of products was located at the Boots in Picadilly Circus, but please if you do know any better locations I am all ears, and a side note, not all Boots have NYX stands.

London Borough Market

Few weeks ago my family from France decided that it was well over due to pay my boyfriend and I a visit in London, let's say my family are not the most adventurous when it comes to leave their beautiful South of France, but when they do come, they come in style with a car full of yuminess from France, enough to feed an army.
Even though they brought so much food for us from sunny South of France, one thing that I really wanted my parents to experience was the London Borough Market near London Bridge. To show them the British way of food markets because honestly its amazing and well...they are food lovers so I knew they would love it.

What I Heart In May

Wow! I am actually doing a 'What I Heart' new post, after my first ever monthly favourite last month (find it here) I though I would struggle to find new things that I could mentioned in this month's post but to my surprise- not at all- so it's time, yet again, to bundle together everything that I love from the past 4 weeks from beauty, food, place I visited etc.:

Brave By MAC

Brave by MAC is the newbie in my little MAC lippy collection, which by the way is growing rather rapidly, so I am certainly not complaining there. This time around I went out of my comfort zone and I purchased a shade more natural, definitely the lightest shade I have in my MAC collection, it's a shade that I am slowly but surely starting to really enjoy wearing, which is unusual because I am more of a deep colour kind of girl, but with Spring settled and Summer just around the corner I feel its a shade perfect for this time of the year.

My Boyfriend Make Up Knowledge | TAG

I thought it would be quite interesting to find out what my boyfriend knows about make up. I gave him a list of the most used make up, skincare and make up techniques and I asked him to tell me what he thinks it is for. So basically I created a tag that you could also use on your boyfriend or your brother/dad/husband! If you do this tag please let me know as I would love to read your experience and I am sure that it could be rather funny too. To revert back to my boyfriend I was very surprised by his answers, he actually knows as much as I do, here is his test and all the answers are his genuine replies, I have not in any way, helped him or given him any clues. Also to understand why he knows so well please see at the end of this blog post for the answer:

New Perfect Brushes

It's been a while since I talked about brushes on my blog, the last one was rather a while back... over a year ago actually (time flies by like crazy, doesn't it?) & you can read that old post of mine here. So you'll agree that it was time for a brushes post update of brushes that I have been loving lately.

MAC Lipstick Collections

It is time for me to do a round up of all those gorgeous MAC lipsticks I have got since the beginning of the year, when I discovered how great they were (I know where I have been before that?), I already accumulated a lovely little collection that goes from a fairly dark shade to more nude like colours. I honestly can say that I am officially hooked by MAC.

Photography Props #1

I think I am rather obsessed with my photography props I have already accumulated rather a lot
and I am always on the look out for new little things that can be part of my home ware too but also used as props. I am going to start this little series (I think I'll do few other posts in the coming months as I have so many of them that one post isn't enough) with 6 items. If you've been following me for a while, you have probably seen them cheekily appearing in a lot on many of my posts.

What I Heart In April

I've never done a 'monthly favourites' before even though they are everywhere when you hit more or less the last week of every month, and I have to admit I do enjoy reading/watching a lot of them and until now it never really occurred me to do one, until now, so... My 'monthly favourites' post is going to be a bit of everything, not just beauty but also fashion, home ware, places I've visited, restaurants, movies, art galleries...you name it anything that rocked my boat on that particular month. I am not sure if I'll stick with doing one every month but I'll give a good shot! I apologised in advance if I am not regular! What can I say? I am the worst blogger around to be organised and posting on time (any tips on this I am all ears) I always do admire those that are always on schedule but I am getting there ..really am I am just on the slow side. So let's begin shall we!

50 Blog Post Ideas

Have you ever had a cup of brew ready, laptop on, notepad at the ready, sitting comfortably, hands on the keyboard and suddenly you find yourself staring at a blank screen. You wait, think...and...nothing...nothing is happening, hoping for a miracle idea but nothing comes to mind, not an hint of ideas! and then you start 'thinking':  'well perhaps I should do a review on that lippy I really loved recently', but then you realise that your last 5 blog posts are all reviews on lipsticks (because you're a crazy lippy fanatic like me) and perhaps it is not your best blogging idea of the year so you stare at that blank screen that increasingly makes you feel very nervous and guilty, and then your boyfriend starts playing PS4 in the background and suddenly shooting at zombies seems more exciting than that the scary blank screen. And before you know it you are on a Zombie killing quest on level 5 and really we need to unlock that pistol that shoot twice as fast because that would really be cool.

My Spring Current Every Day Makeup

My Spring make-up routine lately has been rather neutral, I ditched, for now, my bold lipstick signature for something a little more classic. Somehow the rest of may make up has been following the trend. So I thought it was time to show you what I have been loving lately starting with:
