3 Brands I Need in My Life

3 brands

This post is slightly different to my usual “Introducing” features where I highlight one particular lesser known name who’s work I think is worth knowing about, plenty of those to come though, don’t worry. While I was plotting and scheming various posts, going through the bottomless pit that is my inbox and doing a spot of “market research” by browsing a few of my favourite e-tailers I came across a bunch of brands that I didn’t really know about before and need in my life, like yesterday. Some savvy shoppers sensibly invest in good quality wardrobe staples and, if they’re really smart, develop a signature understated aesthetic that lends itself to such purchases. I’m not one of those people, not by a long shot. Once in a while I invest in an item that may not be the most exciting thing every invented but is beautifully made and I know I’ll get a hell of a lot of use out of. Most of the time, however, I follow my gut instinct which inevitably leads me to pieces that make me squeal with glee and scream “look at me!” Case in point, my beloved but not entirely practical Shrimps candyfloss coat.

Everyday Skincare Essentials

Everyday Beauty, La Petite Anglaise, Ella Catliff

Is it just me, or is this time of year really, really tough on the visage? Admittedly,  I did myself no favours whatsoever over the festive period, sleeping with my makeup on God knows how many times a week and developing a late onset love of Mince Pies. Regardless of the fact I may or may not have over indulged and been pretty lazy with the old 3 step cleansing routine, cold weather, wind, central heating and constant temperature changes wreak havoc with even the clearest of skin. Since waking up on Boxing Day bloated and blotchy with dry patches the size of the Sahara all over my mug I’ve been vigilant about skincare and thankfully it’s starting to look and feel a whole lot better now. So I thought what better time than now to share my everyday beauty essentials with you guys? These are the products I absolutely cannot live without and intend to use a lot more regularly throughout 2015…
