My skin care routine has always only consisted of the necessities - a good face wash and moisturiser. Ever since realising that my skin reacts to anything that doesn't allow it to breathe I've avoided anything 'moisture' heavy and always went for the lighter density creams. 

For the past 30 days, I've been testing out the Lancome Advanced Génifique Sensitive Serum. This serum is designed to help restore and protect your skin through a boost of pure anti-oxidants contained in the serum. 

In order to feel the full effects of the serum, it is recommended to be used at night for at least 28 days. To even further the serum's power, a combination of the Advanced Génifique Sensitive at night and the Advanced Génifique in the mornings was recommended.

I'm going to be honest here, during my first week, the Advanced Génifique Sensitive was amazing and left my skin feeling hydrated and smooth in the mornings. The Advanced Génifique left my face with a few bumps by the end of the day. I thought that this was just my skin adjusting so I continued for about two weeks. With my skin continually being bumpy I stopped using the Advanced Génifique serum and continued with the Sensitive serum. That was when my skin started to clear up and become more hydrated. 

I've heard fantastic things from others about the Lancome Advanced Génifique serums, even though the combination of the two didn't initially work out, I'm so happy with the effects of the Sensitive serum and am still using it. 


Layering delicate necklaces... something that is populating Instagram feeds by the day - particularly by sun loving beach goers in European locations. 

These two beauties are by minimalist fine jewellery love, Sit & Wonder. Ever since encountering their ring collection last year, I've been in love. I'm wearing the Ellipsis and Catalyst Lariat necklaces. The simple yet delicate play with crystals and silver dots is something that allows you to wear these pieces for any occasion. 

Sit & Wonder and I have teamed up and are giving away a $100 Sit & Wonder gift voucher! Just head over to my Instagram for more details. Entries close on Monday 21st August, 2017.



Wearing: Lovers + Friends romper and Raye slides both via Revolve

I'm heading over to Bali in just over three weeks and have just been on the look out over the part few months for summer pieces to take on my trip. One thing that I want to do is try and minimise is the amount of clothes that I bring over there and also reduce the hassle of trying to figure out what to wear while I'm over there. So one thing I've been looking out for are one pieces aka playsuits and dresses - it's one outfit done and one less decision that needs to be made for the day. 

I found this lace number on Revolve, it's by Lovers + Friends and had me dreaming straight away of Bali. I've paired this number with a pair of casual slides by Raye with the studded detail, just for a little extra something.
