The No 7 BB Cream

This cream is incredibly light and gives a very subtle kind of coverage. My thoughts initially were that it looks like a regular foundation, however, once applied it's nearly invisible and really does give you that 'no makeup' look. It's perfect for those days where you really can't be bothered with a full face of makeup but still want to look fresh. The texture is quite creamy too and not messy to apply. The only bad thing I will say about it is that it can give my skin an overly dewy, almost greasy look. I usually have to apply a little bit of powder afterwards to make it look more polished. Another positive about the cream however, is that a little goes a long way. The tube is quite small considering the price you pay, but I have a feeling it will last a while since you don't need to use much of it in one application. I'm really enjoying using BB creams at the moment as they're much less time consuming than foundation. Can you recommend any amazing ones that I must try?

Kate Spade

Here's a bit of a naughty purchase from the weekend that I thought I would share. I had no idea how lovely Kate Spade's designs were until I popped into the store on the King's Road in Chelsea - so many pretty things! I settled on this black wallet since I needed a new one, and it's a classic piece that will hopefully last me for years. What do you think?

I don't know about you, but I can spend hours looking at lovely interiors online. I lose myself in a world of gorgeous bedrooms and beautiful dressing tables. I find myself day-dreaming more and more about owning my own home and decorating it. I really love clean, minimal spaces with the odd bit of colour thrown in. Along with fashion and photography, interior design is something that I'm drawn to. I have a very clear idea in mind for my ideal home and it involves lots of white furniture, luxury candles and coffee table books. My ideal living space would be minimalist but still look homely and lived in. I adore French themed interiors and shabby-chic style furniture. What do you think of these designs?
