Week in Pictures

As much as I love a good outfit post, I thought I'd introduce a new ´Week in Pictures´ style feature so that you can find out a bit more about what I´ve been doing other than buying shit. Here's what I've been up to this week...

Headed down to Glasgow on the train for Jen's engagement party and admired the beautiful views along the way. The guy opposite me thought I was staring at him which was incredibly uncomfortable for everyone involved.

Made like my ten year old self and started taking 'Eye Selfies' again. Patent pending.

Embraced my inner child and gave myself some sassy ass giltter nails. It´s a mixture of a Nails Inc matte blue polish and this Topshop glitter polish.

On Tuesday I went down to St. Andrews for the day to model for Scaramanga. We did the first part of the shoot in Crail which is one of the most picturesque places I've ever been; it looks more like Spain than Scotland (shame about the baltic wind). If you ever visit make sure and get a lobster roll - or even a whole fresh lobster if you're feeling crazy - from the little shack at the harbour.
Tried out the new Bare Minerals foundation in their beautiful store in Buchanan Galleries, where it's exclusive to until the 4th of September. It's been 20 years in the making - now that's dedication - and uses the bare minimal of ingredients possible and combines mineral foundation with brightening serum. It was applied with their new face perfecting brush (which is amazing) and you apply it one drop at a time until you get the coverage you're after. I honestly couldn't recommend it more, I think I´ve mentioned before how hard I´ve found it to track down a good foundation and this one ticked all the boxes. It´s incredibly lightweight whilst still giving good coverage, and gave my skin a really nice dewy glow as well. It comes in 20 different shades as well so you can get a perfect colour match, which is something I also really struggle with having abnormally pale face-skin. There´s a really nice relaxed, welcoming vibe in store and they also do loads of tutorials if you fancy learning a bit more about make up. The amazing Paula did mine and she was absolutely incredible (and like a little genius make-up encyclopeadia), so if you're a bit shy then make sure and ask for her because she'll put you at ease with her loveliness and give you a thorough education at the same time.
A couple of photos from around the store, if my bag was bigger I'd have pinched one of those chandeliers.
Arrived in Tenerife on Friday, wahey! I've got a couple of posts scheduled for when I'm away, but I'll be posting regularly over on my Instagram so you can also follow me there for updates!

Let me know what you thought of this kind of post and if it´s something you'd like to see more of! Over and out.
