The Sunday Post: Sunshine Overdose

Holy. Crap. It’s Hot. Is all I have to say today. Down here on the coast I’m sweating out which is unusual considering we usually have a small breeze to keep the temperature outside of bikini necessary  temperatures. Blog posts are currently being written outside of my tiny – space for one – bedroom and I have relocated to the garden. The only reason I’m moving back inside will be to film a very (highly requested) dewy every day makeup video.

This week has consisted of copious amounts of shopping and nail painting, and some very nice new discoveries have been made so blog posts should be plentiful this week. I’ve also been pinning away as usual on Pinterest, and thanks to Nouvelle Daily I’ve lost a good hour of my life! You can find my Pinterest account here if you’ve caught the pinning bug, and if you haven’t, you should, it’s the perfect way to loose hours at a time.

I’ve been loving Lilys videos recently, and her blog post featuring some slightly more outdoorsy photos this week was just beauts! 

I may already have enough toners to hydrate, refresh and exfoliate a small army at the moment, but Alix  published a post this week featuring a Dr Jart toner that was some how not on my radar. If the fact that Alix loves it hadn’t swayed me enough, the scientific bottle and pipette definitely did. Let the skin care researching commence!

I love Lauren from Oh Little Red almost as much as I love Luce, and her graduation photos today were just too cute! She also looked smokin’ in her dress, gown and funny hat!

Oh and how could I not mention Anna’s video on Holiday Beauty Packing? The lady is an organisational beauty wizard!

    I hate the heat, can't wait for winter come about but those Rimmel polishes are the best around right now- certain colours are definitely putting me in a summery mood! xx

    Sounds like such a lovely day. Mine was spent swimming and trying to entertain my hyperactive nephew while the tennis was on! Lovely post as usual.

    I just came across your blog on the cosmo blog shortlist. Most of the blogs on there are new to me and you had my vote based on your layout. Good luck.
