Nars Sheer Glow Foundation


You have probably seen the Nars Sheer Glow foundation in many of my other blog posts, but as I've nearly finished the pot I finally decided it was time for it's very own post. 

I've had this foundation for about 5 months and I bought it from Space NK after hearing so many other bloggers rave how amazing it was. It's a medium to high coverage foundation but looks really beautiful and flawless on the skin without looking cakey. As the name suggests it adds a lovely glow without looking too shiny, which is the look that I love. I have the shade Deauville, which has worked for me throughout the year and I just added a bronzer to warm my skin up when I had a tan. 

I would say that this foundation probably isn't the best for people with dry skin as it can stick to dry patches, but I find that if I use a heavy duty serum I can normally get around this problem. 

I'm at the very end of this pot now and as I'm heading to New York in a few weeks I'm definitely going to pick up another one and maybe even one of their creamy concealers!

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream


Last week the Marc Jacobs Tweet Shop finally came to London, and if you don't know what that is then go and have a look at my post here as it's a really cool concept that they do with the release of their new perfumes. 

The new launch they were celebrating this time was Daisy Dream. I adore Marc Jacobs perfumes, I think I've had almost every single one since the original Daisy. I love how unique the packaging is for each launch and I think they always manage to represent the scent and idea behind the perfume with their designs. 

I would describe Daisy Dream as a more mature floral scent. I love floral perfumes but I know they aren't for everyone so I think that they got the blend of scents for Daisy Dream spot on to suit most people. The top notes are Blackberry, Fresh Grapefruit and succulent Pear with the heart notes being rich and feminine Jasmine, Lychee and Blue Wisteria. It's this mixture of floral and musky notes which gives the scent a more sophisticated, grown up feel.

Le Restaurant de PAUL

Last week myself and a few other bloggers were very lucky enough to be invited along to try the newly opened PAUL restaurant in Covent Garden. 

You probably know PAUL for their delicious pastries and macaroons but the chain has just opened their first restaurant right here in London. As PAUL first opened in France I would have assumed that their first restaurant would have been in Paris but lucky for us Londoners we'll be the first ones to try out their new venture.

Marc Jacob Tweet Shop

This weekend between the 15-17th August Marc Jacobs are opening their doors to their #tweetshop pop up shop in Covent Garden. The concept behind the store is instead of using money to pay for products you use tweets containing the hashtag #MJdiasychain.
