Sunday's Snaps | Five

Hola Munchkins!
This week has been a tad exciting - big things going on at work, lots of products to try, lovely celeb party and showcase to attend, and meeting the super sweet Abi Clarke and Lydia Scott-Lee =).
| Myself with the sweetheart that is Abi Clarke (sad I didn't get a pic with Lydia Scott-Lee - stunning!) | Hat on the Tracks | Chandelier at Professor Green's Ink Club | Fireball Bourbon - cinnamon | INK Menu | Making mum's bday card =) | Hummingbird cupcake and tea at the office |
And that is my week in a very small nutshell.
Much Love, Ani x

Back | Night Time Luxury

Hola Munchkins!
I have been a very, very bad blogger - life and work have just gotten away from me, but here I am stating my intention to go back to doing what I love almost daily - blogging.
I thought I'd start back with a few rescue products that I am using on these cold winter nights that add a little luxury to my nighttime routine. The cold weather and travelling on the tube is just pummeling my skin into oblivion - its pretty clear at the moment, but obviously stressed and parched even though its oily.  So step forward the last steps before bed:
First up I'm been slathering my worn-out face in skinChemists Wrinkle Killer Facial Oil - the middle bottle - which is absolutely beautiful: a more water-based oil that is a cross between a serum and an oil that leaves the skin nourished but not greasy.  Next up, a generous layer of the skinChemists Wild Caviar Facial Moisturiser (a tube of the matching hand cream sits on my desk), which is lovely, thick but light, and nourishes deep down.  You actually only need the tiniest bit - it spreads well and doesn't add any excess oil to the face.  Lastly I slather on the Neom Complete Bliss Organic Hand Cream - smells of Moroccan Blush Rose, which is a smell that I absolutely adore, and leaves the hands soft and supple.
So those are my current nighttime go to's!
Hope you liked them!
Much Love, Ani x

Thursday's Thought | Thirteen

Hola Munchkins!
This week has been quite the blur, hence I have been slacking big time on the blog front - hopefully I can resume normal blogging services from this weekend.
Here is a little collage of my inspirations:

Angel Delight | Cream Puff

Hola Munchkins!
Surprisingly this post isn't actually my faves for October (look out for those over the weekend!), neither is it about the lovely creamy dessert that is Angel Delight, but a matte lip cream I have recently rediscovered.  This is Collection 2000 Cream Puff in Angel Delight: I am not sure exactly why I forgot about this, it tends to happen, but I have rediscovered it and the basic gist is - it is pretty much perfect.
Firstly, it literally feels like how I imagine a cream puff to feel on the lips - smooth, soft and slightly like it's just not there at all.  Pigmentation is brilliant - opaque with one layer, but nice to add more layers and have a full-on matte pout.  Regarding matte, it really is matte.  Not demi-matte.  Not slightly matte, but lovely and matte.  So much so that it looks like my lips in both texture and colour.  My lips but better kind of deal - and brilliant for work days, or any days where you want a colour you don't have to worry about, and that will stay on perfectly.
Love A.x
