Winter Coat

Hey Everyone!

I decided to make a purchase this year that I haven't done in years which is buying a new winter coat. I have 2 other winter coats that I have been wearing for years, literally since I was 13, so I thought I would buy and wear something different this winter.

I went for a long black coat with a masculine coat from Bershka. I'm pretty short so going for a long coat was surprising. I remember trying it on in store and just falling in love with the fit and look..

Columbia Road Flower Market

Hey Everyone!

Moving to London is something I'm still getting used to. I'm still not used to how there's something constantly going on no matter where you are in London. This time it was a flower market down Columbia Road.

I have never been to a flower market before especially not one this popular. It was an exciting place to be with flowers, plants and even Christmas trees & decorations on both sides of the road. At one point it did become difficult to move around but it was kind of expected as it was the first weekend of December..

Lip Balms - What You Didn't Know

Hey Everyone!

I was recently introduced to a review website about lip balms where around 177 lip balms were tested in order to find 'The Best Lip Balm.'

As I was reading through their review and research, I came across some very interesting information about our lips and what lips balms actually do to our lips. I thought it would be interesting to tell you some of this information and to encourage you to go to to read more about it.

It may only be November but it's pretty much winter for me already. I've already brought my winter coat (a blogpost to come) which always means winter is here. I also know winter is here when my lips become more chapped and I see myself applying the same old lip balm. Although, what I didn't realise is that this tingly/cooling sensation I was feeling on my lips is menthol and camphor. I didn't know of these chemicals before but they contribute to the numbing which isn't a good thing because it can actually burn your chapped lips. Once your lips are exposed in the sun, they actually become more sun sensitive. Carmex is an example. It's insane to think that Carmex has always been on my lips for the last few years during the summer and so it has been doing more harm than good.

Another chemical that I didn't not know before reading the review is phenol. It's a acid that acts as an exfoliant which is usually a good thing but not as much of a good thing when applied to dry, chapped lips. Dry, chapped lips need to be repaired and not exfoliated because it can lead to irritation. Making sure to check the labels of lip balms is important because what your lips need is a lip balms with moisturising ingredients and protective barriers.

September Weddings

Hey Everyone!

A few days ago, my boyfriend and I attended a wedding.
All the weddings I have been to have always been different to each other. This time it was an intimate wedding with only a few family and friends. It was in the woods and up north of the country.

I thought I would show you what I wore to a lovely ceremony during a slightly cold September day.
