Just a quick blog with a few things I’ve discovered this week, and have been doing this week!
On my list to buy is Charlotte Tilbury’s ‘Filmstar Bronze and Glow’. Make-up artist Justine Wade, used this gorgeous sculpting and highlighting duo on me last week at The Wright Stuff and it gives the most flattering finish to the skin. Find it HERE.
I went to Babbington House in Somerset for a night this week – a friend of mine had bought me treatments for my birthday, so I spent three hours in the Cowshed having a Salt Scrub and Massage and then a Cowshed Facial. It was utterly divine. Babbington House is one of my favourite places – relaxing and beautiful. I highly recommend it.
I’m really passionate about young skin. I used products that weren’t remotely suitable for my skin when I was a teenager. I’m not a fan of many of harsh products on the market targeted at teenagers with acne – daily scrubs are also a horrible idea for blemishes – the key is to be gentle. I’ve had two recent conversations with people about what to do with teenage skin and thankfully these days there are some ranges that are specifically designed for younger skin. Eve Taylor’s Teen Skin Actives range, ARK Skincare’s Age Protect range and Dermalogica’s ‘Clear Start’ Range.
I’ve been spending a lot of time in the cinema – highly recommend Straight Outta Compton. ‘Legend’ – although I read some mixed reviews before watching – Tom Hardy is outstanding and my friend Lucy and I loved it. Then at Babbington House I watched ‘Red Army’ – a true story in documentary style about the former USSR’s national hockey team – LOVED it.
I found these trainers in New York a few months ago and I can’t take them off – Nike’s Roshe Run Flyknit. I bought two pairs one for me and one for a friend’s birthday. This flyknit variation of the Roshe Run – run big. Go at least half a size down. My friend who runs in a Nike UK 6 – fitted a UK 5. I run in a UK 5.5 and also bought a 5 – and they are still slightly big. No one in the Nike store knew this or told me this. You could run in these trainers but they’re not really designed to be a permanent running shoe. They are SO comfortable I want to wear them every day – and I have been this week! They sell out constantly so if your size isn’t in, you have to keep checking!! Find them HERE.
I hope whatever you’ve been doing you’ve had a great week too
