7 Things in 7 days... But Maybe not actually 7days!

Hey Guys!

I was reading Louise (aka. Sprinkleofglitters) blog post about achieving some new things in 7days and i thought it sounds like fun, i might just give that a go!
I'm most probably not going to do them all in 7days because i am quite the busy bee at the moment (which is rare for me as i'm very lazy) so i do have to continue with every day life things rather than focus all my time on this 7things malarkey! However saying that i really do want to set myself some new goals and aims & i think it's a lovely thing to do! If you have something to look forward to and to put your heart and soul into then i think that's something worth-while doing.

I Think you should all join me on my little quest and then we can discuss if we managed to achieve them!

I'll try not to fail at it, but i'll try my very best either way! So below I've listed my 7things however they are not in any particular order (just saying).

MY 7 THINGS (cue drum-roll please)...

1. Sing & play my guitar more & upload a cover to YouTube

2. Blog more (even if it's not an interesting post, it's quite therapeutic)

3. Get up earlier and do more with my day

4. Read more

5. Talk to my french friends a lot more

6. Eat at new places more often

7. Just have nice days out with friends and people i haven't seen in a while

OKAY So there not that fun or wild but i'd like to stick to them... what's your 7 things? Leave a comment x

Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation Review!

Why Hello there! (It's always awkward writing the intro),

I have been really really busy lately, so i haven't posted anything on my blog! I thought why not do a review on my current foundation, the Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation.

The foundation is really creamy in texture and thicker than a liquid i guess because as it says it's a 'Creme' (Cream in french for all you confused people!) foundation. I feel like the slightly thicker texture makes me use less product as it glides smoothly along the face with a pea sized amount. 

Sorry for the lack of pictures! My camera had a meltdown)
It's a full coverage foundation however my skin is actually spot-free at the moment (touch wood), so i don't need a full coverage foundation. I buff a tiny amount into my skin (to get less coverage) with the Real Techniques buffing brush (which is AMAZING) and it results in such a natural, even and flawless complexion. I think this foundation would work for all skin types as it's very hydrating for people with dry skin, but not oily at all for people with oily skin such as myself. In this sense i think it's very versatile.

It's quite pricey and comes with a price tag of: 33£ ( I think) and is available at John Lewis and other department stores! 

I Think it's worth the money for a good quality foundation that lasts a long time, but obviously drugstore can also be amazing. I really like High-end foundation because i want to ensure that i'm putting something of good quality onto my skin! 

Hope this review helped, if you have any questions just comment!
