MAY FAVOURITES.

technology

So I thought I would do a quick little post tonight and just share a few of my favorites this month. whadda ya think?

First was my super exciting news to be featured in Company Magazine, not to mention the digital edition yehhhh.  Today I’ve spent glancing through the virtual pages and munching on some delicious Candy Kittens. Yep, that's right.. those sweets Jamie Laing from Made in Chelsea has. I'm quite impressed.
The lovely Sophie Higginson was the hair and make up artist on the Company shoot (oh I wish she was around every day). She used straighteners to wave my hair and I’ve been doing it a lot myself ever since. Using these GHD Eclipse. I don’t know if this is something you’d like to see a tutorial on, but if so… let me know.
My straighteners were well overdue a renewal, they had lost a lot of their heat and having these I feel has reduced my hair breakage by not going over and over the same area to get it done.

Lastly I also got a new case from my phone from the lovely people at Sticky9 featuring all my instagram photos. Such a great idea!

products

A few products I’ve bought recently which I’ve been testing and thought I’d share.
First up, the Charles Worthington moisture seal shampoo and conditioner. Ok, I’m a sucker for nice packaging but I love to change up brands when it comes to washing my hair. These to feel like they add a lot of moisture to my hair but be carful if your hairs fine, I think they could verge on making it greasey.

Sanctuary Hot Cloth Cleanser – Onto my second purchase and my quest to find a cheaper alternative to Liz Earle. Guys, I think its almost there… maybe. Strong statement I know.


summer glow

Feeling summer has arrived it's time to get that sun kissed glow, so I’ve be trying out these to new products.

Vita liberata  - the world’s first odorless fake tan. SOLD! 
I will say I got the colour medium and it was surprisingly not as dark as I thought it would be, I was quite nervous having been torn between light and medium, but its a good match.

Chanel soleil tan bronzer.

This is perfect now but I think it will be slightly too dark when I've lost a bit of my summer tan . It looks like a mouse but goes on like a powder, which is great as it wont break like all my Nars powders did.

birch box

Finally when the May BirchBox arrived I couldn’t have been more excited about the Harpers Bazaar collaboration and THAT box wow.

Even better it featured two favorites.  An old favourite Liz Earle; this is a perfect size for travel and I know some day soon I will succumb to its ways and buy it full size again. A new favourite, this benefit mascara; I’m using it in this photo and most definitely will be buying it in full size. Now BirchBox sell all the items you get in full size, all in one handy spot online. Easy peezy.

Have you tried any of these items? let me know what you think too...

As mentioned in my previous post... I wasn’t just prancing about London Bridge for no particular reason... we bloggers had a mission and that was to find out more about a Grow Wild campaign led by Kew Gardens.

The aim of the game? – simples! Inspire people from all across the UK to get together to transform unloved spaces for nature with native wild flowers – helping to improve the UK for future generations to come.

It was such a fun day with music from Neon jungle, of course lots of flowers and my own seeds to take home and get planting.


So watch this space for 'Love Cloth does gardening!'

WIW 2013

I thought it would be nice to take a little look back at the past 12 months of blogging, some of the photos didn't make the actual post so keep your eyes pealed for never seen before snaps... How quickly a year has went, I can't believe I have been blogging for this long. Just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who follows and comments. It's been lovely to have such great support!

January 2013
Wasn't that a rather chilly start to the new year in 2013, I got my first Mulberry bag, Effie that I have used every day since and I discovered a whole host of nice coats in my mums wardrobe.

Remember a time of bare legs and sunglasses? It seems like a distant memory but here I am frolicking around in the sunshine. Some day it will return.
This was my first holiday of summer when I took a little trip to Barcelona, it was great to get advice from you all on what to do. I will call on you again soon i'm sure.
May was also my first blog birthday, one whole year! yehhhhh

This was the month I joined Take 10 which has been such a fun experience. We have worked on some great projects and I can't wait to see what the new year brings. 
I spent a lot of time over in London/Shropshire this month and got to wear one of the prettiest dresses I own. I also find out i'm nominated for a cosmo blog award. In-shock isn't even the word. I like July :)

The bare legs club is in full swing this month. I did projects for ASOS FF and Urban Outfitters x Minkpink which was so surreal, being all my favourite brands.
