The wonderful team over at Handpicked Media offered me the chance to work with and review a brand spanking new Bourjois mascara. 
To say I'm sceptical about mascara that promises to transform my own, stubby, awful excuses for eyelashes into lust worthy, long flutters, would be an understatement. After 1 application, and I mean 1...not 1 sitting and 6 lashing of the stuff....my lashes were unrecognisable. The Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara is the one, the one I've been hunting for all of my mascara wearing life. I honestly couldn't recommend this mascara anymore if I tried. Obviously, this was a sample for me to try but as soon as I run out, I'll be buying it again.

Thanks for reading and I hope you take my advice to make your lashes incredible!
Have a great week.

Dungarees, a style revolution I never thought would do the rounds again. Yet here I am wearing my favourite pair by Another 8 London and feeling all 90's throwback. These dungarees are the best ones I've found, lightweight, well fitted and just the right amount of slouch. I teamed them with my trusty black leather mules and bardot style top by & Other Stories. I shot this look on a day that was so hot, I felt like I was on the actual sun....so excuse the shadows but I was pretty helpless. 

Shop my look:
Dungarees-Another 8 London
Bardot top-& Other Stories
Mules- Zara, past season Similar here
Bracelet-Monica Vinader
Sunglasses- Pimark, in store

Hope you're avoiding the storms and having a lovely chilled weekend.
Thanks so much for reading
