I am not a morning person. Waking up in the morning to an alarm at 6:45am is definitely not something I enjoy. I try and leave everything until the last minute to enjoy those extra moments snuggled under my duvet. The only problem with this routine is that I don’t have enough time to apply any skincare or makeup before I head out for the day. So, in between trying to get my hair to behave and heading out the door to leg it to the tube station I pack my little beauty commuter kit. It’s full of mini must-have’s which make sure that I’m prepped and ready before walking into the office.
I know amongst my friends there are strong opinions about women applying makeup on public transport. You either love it or hate it, but when you need a little extra skin boost and you have so little time; needs must.
If you’re in the same position as me but aren’t sure what to include in your commuter beauty kit then here are my recommendations…
Styling outfits should be easy, there’s really no point over complicating things. This Summer I have a style formula that I’ll be relying on to see me through the season. It’s quick, it’s simple and most important of all anyone can do it.
Irrespective of your budget it’s the simplest style formula for dressing this Summer. If you’re like me and love the throw on and go vibe then look no further. So, what is this style formula I’m raving on about? Dress + Bag + Shoes = The Perfect Look
Here’s how you can do it too…
It’s no secret that I’m rubbish at walking in heels. My walking is that terrible that even one of my friends likened me to a baby giraffe learning to walk! So, in light of this, it’s safe to say that wearing sky-high heels is a rare occurrence. Now, just because six-inch stilettos are a no-go it doesn’t mean I have to stick to flats all Summer long. Cue the kitten heel fresh in from the New Arrivals section at Wallis. They’re chic, they’re smart and they’re this Summer’s hottest shoe. Here’s why…
I’m going to start out by saying that this isn’t my typical travel post, in that I went to Madrid for the weekend but I didn’t do my usual sightseeing city break. So, why did I go here and not do much sightseeing? Well, to spend time with my lovely friends from University. The weekend was all about being with my girls and spending time with one in particular who moved to this lovely Spanish city a few years ago. The weekend was all about catching up, The Royal Wedding and drinking pale rosé on rooftop bars overlooking the city. Oh, and eating a lot of tapas! It was bliss.
Whilst, I only got to spend 48 hours here I did go to some amazing places which I thought I’d share with you. Enjoy!
My trip was in part inspired by (dare I say it) Instagram and the thought of eating yummy Italian food for two weeks. Over the years I’ve been fortunate enough to visit this wonderful country on several occasions and the beautiful images on social media really drew me to the Amalfi Coast. It was idyllic; everything I dreamed it would be and more.
Rather than making this travel guide an essay I thought I’d give you a little snapshot of my two weeks away and the places that I really loved. From the colourful houses in Positano to the Sapphire blue waters in Capri, all the important bits are in here for you to have a look at. Enjoy!
