Wasssssuuuppppppppp???? (Do you guys still do that? It will never not be funny to me).
Life has been pretty cray – I moved back in with my parents (temporarily) and spent two days traipsing back and forth from our showroom to the Truman Brewery for Jacket Required. Tried to fit in socialising, yoga and house viewings…and failed. I managed to do yoga though so that’s something I guess…
In an attempt to add more structure to this here weblog, I’m adding the first of a few new categories. I really enjoy doing product reviews and sharing some of the things I love so every Friday I will post my favourites from the week. Here goes…
Studio Fix Fluid Foundation in NC55 from MAC Cosmetics
I’m pretty loyal to brands, particularly when it comes to make up. Partly because I’m lazy and don’t wear it every day and also because I’m not the most experimental. But still, who doesn’t love a good face beat? (yaaaasss hunnaaayyy).
I’ve been using Studio Sculpt from MAC for years. I love the full coverage HOWEVER, as mentioned in recent youtube video, I’m not so into looking shiny. An artist at the MAC store described the finish as “dewy” which made me sick in my mouth a bit because lez be honest, I don’t want to look like I have a permanent nervous sweat going on and I don’t like the feeling of setting powder. In the past, I’ve used their Mineralize Moisture foundation which was too shimmery and one other which I can’t actually remember the name of but it was a cream and came in a cute compact.
This though…The assistant did a swatch on my jaw line and I could instantly tell the difference. It glides on, offers full coverage, and it doesn’t feel like I’m wading through a cloud of moist smog. This will last me about a year so I didn’t mind paying £21.50. Shout out to the artist that served me and stopped me from walking into a set of locked doors….Click here to check it out.
Jacket Required Portable Charger
Wednesday and Thursday of this week, I was working at Jacket Required – a menswear trade show, held at the Truman Brewery in East London. Every season, the organisers provide exhibitors with a branded notebook and pencil, a plant and a neat gadget. Last summer, we were givenn a battery powered fan (which was SO necessary as the building is like a greenhouse). This season we were gifted some awesome portable chargers! They came with a USB lead and attachments for iPhones (4, 5 and 6) and Android devices. I’m always running out of battery so this will come in super handy. It’s small and will fit in any size bag. Stoked on this as I’d been putting off buying one for some time.
