July Update!

I have loved the super sunny hot July in the UK! What a scorcher it has been : )
I have really enjoyed some relaxing down time in the garden and long walks and exercise outdoors it really has been bliss.

July started with a flurry of prom make up's followed by a truly beautiful wedding for Charlotte at stunning Coworth Park. It has been another busy month of shoots and weddings.
This month also saw my second wedding anniversary celebrations we had a lovely meal at Thompson at Darcys in St.Albans and will be visiting Pennyhill Spa for a relaxing weekend break. We surprisingly got each other the same card. Second anniversary is cotton so I had some fun cotton cupcakes made at

I also made my first loaf of bread! #breadmaker 
I got inspired at Tate Modern seeing The Matisse Cut Outs exhibition, you really must see it before it ends in September!

 I saw this in Selfridges and fell in love with it!
 My lippy artwork, I am lips obsessed at the moment.
I am also inspired by mosaic and mosaic art at the moment and hope to create my own mosaic masterpiece soon.

My Summer essential!


I have been using Garnier Ambre Solaire SPF 50 daily for a few months now.

I love it because it feels light and non-greasy on and gives high protection against both UVA and UVB rays.

It is also in a handy small size to carry in your bag for 'on the go' application for face and body when needed and is water resistant.

I have found this product great worn alone and I use it daily as a base protection under make-up.

I have also had no breakouts using this which has happened with other sun cream's, plus I love the scent...reminiscent of holidays.

It's RRP is currently reduced from £6.00 to £3.00 in both Boots and Superdrug so happy shopping!
