Current Favourite Foundation Brush

I'm always searching for great brushes, especially ones than can cut my time in half. Personally I don't spend much time on my own make up on a day-to-day basis. I wear a little every day, giving myself 15mins for application in the morning. 
Having a wide foundation brush, gets the job done quicker. 

Now, I have quite a big face with large features, so a wide brush works great for me, you might find that its too big for the job and prefer something a little small - it's personal preference.
I have a lot of different types and sizes in my actual make up kit but for personal use I've  been using the Ruby and Millie Face Brush for years, it's a great brush at a very good price and you can easily pick one up in Boots without even thinking about it.

Suddenly, I came across this foundation brush by Cosmetics a la carte. It's a great short handled brush at nearly 6 inches in length, fits in your make up bag easier than long handled ones and costs £30!

But, the best bit is - it's just over an inch wide
(The Ruby and Millie brush is under 2cm wide)

I'm very pleased!

If you're after a wide brush you can buy online here!

Half Price Xen Tan!

Saks Hair & Beauty salons are now stocking Xen Tan products and offering spray tans!
You know I love Xen Tan - and everyone needs a little more colour this time of year! 

You can currently enjoy this award-winning tan for half price! (14 November – 31 December)  

There are two in-salon treatments to choose from. 
The first is Xen-Tan’s Signature Spray Tan Treatment, which transforms your skin in seconds, to give you a stunningly natural olive glow. Perfect for when time is of the essence, it is the quickest way to achieve a professional finish and a fool-proof tan. £25 (prices may vary depending on the salon)
The second treatment is a hand-applied Luxurious Tanning Treatment, with all the same benefits, but provides a tan that lasts even longer as the sweet-smelling lotion glides onto skin, leaving it wonderfully nourished and silky smooth. This is the ultimate pampering treat that will make you and your skin feel great and is the ideal gift for a loved one this Christmas. £40 (prices may vary depending on the salon)

Quick Hair Update...

My current hair length. (and its natural crazy state)
I'm off for a cut and colour tomorrow so will keep you posted on that, but for now - it's still growing slowly.

This is the next stepping stone....


Columbia Road Christmas.....

For the four Wednesdays before Christmas, all the lovely shops on Columbia Road are open for a few hours in the evening, there's mulled wine, mice pies, Christmas trees, music, dancing, and a wonderful, warm Christmasy atmosphere!

5pm - 9pm

I went along last night, I live so close I'll probably go every Wednesday, but last night I picked up a few bits between drinking warm cider with dark rum and watching a fire breather casually wonder down the street. 

The lantern is actually from my mama, I don't know where that ones from, sorry x

Wrap up warm and have a winter wonder down Columbia Road!
