Banbury Food Fair | Lifestyle

Well If you know me , then you would know that I love food and especially food market/ fair. What more is to love when you are surrounded of great foods from different corners of the globe! This year my little town organised (like apparently every summer) one of those event and, I'll be honest with you because I just left London (after living there for  about 18 years) I was not too sure what to expect from my new little town (Banbury- Oxfordshire) food market I knew how amazing they are in London but I was not too sure how my little town will compare.

The One That Was Dewy | Review

I am guilty, yes guilty to admit that I have been a little sheep (on this occasion anyway) and only bought the L'Oréal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation because one of my favourite bloggers keeps raving about it on some of her vlogs, blogs etc. and I fell for it so I had to have it. That blogger is Anna from The Anna Edit by the way. I don't know if I should say thanks you to her or not but in this instance because it is such a great product I 'll say thank you.

Morning Skincare Routine

I realised lately that I have never done a Morning Skincare Routine post. I know, where have I been? I can ensure you I've been around but definitely not on the trend wagon that's for sure ("please can someone wake up Marie on the back sit please?"). But lately I am definitely feeling that wagon and mostly the love that I have found again with my skincare routine. Skincare is my thing, although I love make up and I would never have enough lipsticks (despite my partner saying otherwise), I just really can't live without smothering my face with nice smelly lotions and potions! 
So what has been on my morning routine lately:

Soaper Duper | Review

Soaper Duper is the new kid on the block, the little one that I feel will soon be on the trendy wagon BUT here to stay.
It perhaps doesn't look like much but when you know their products are supporting the Water Aid & Clean The World foundations and that it is made without plastic microbeads, parabens, colourants, sls/sles or any of the other usual suspects you'll then know that whatever is in those bottles is good stuff for you and the planet.

So you want to start a blog | Part 2

This is my part 2 on my little series: 'So you want to start a blog'. On my first part that you can find here, I talked about finding the right platform for your blog, choosing a blog name, design and writing posts. Overall it was the blogging starting point a bit like if you were packing, getting your passport & flight ticket ready for a trip abroad if you like. But if you still new and you have now your brand new blog for few weeks in this fantastic world of blogging, or just curious to know more perhaps there is few bits and bobs that you should know and in my opinion follow. hence again I would just address that I am in now way a professional blogger as such but I been there a little while, almost 4 years for that matter, and I guess you could say I learned from my mistakes and also by observing, making note and interacting. I see it as a community and I like to share too. So here my second part and this time around I'll talk about Honestly in blogging, comments, posting or not posting & worrying about your blog.

Génifique by Lancome | Review

Lancome is for me a brand that we don't get to hear very often, and that is a shame. I've known this brand pretty much since I was at school and had pony tails on each side of my head (and trust me when I said this was many, many, many years ago) & when my mum had shelves full of this brand along with a few other iconic ones. I still remember the smell of her Lancome lipsticks and all her creams and potions.

The Past Few Weeks #5 | baby, Wedding & New House.

Its been a while since I have written a new chapter of my The Past Few Weeks series, the last one was in October last year which you can find here
So since end of last year, what have been happening?  As you may remember I announced my pregnancy last October. I was at the time about 5 months pregnant and now, obviously, I am no longer pregnant and I have, as I am typing this post, a 6 months adorable baby lying by my side. Her name's Émeline, she is our everything, a little bunch of pure happiness for my fiancé and I. She was born the 4th February at 38 weeks weighing no more than a little 2 kg 540  (5.5 pounds) a very little baby that made her even more precious to us. She is healthy, beautiful and we love her more than words can describe. 
I would love to show her to the world though my blog but I never agreed on plastering pictures of babies / kids in general on social medias so she'll stay off those platforms until she is big enough to decide for herself.
