FRENDS Layla Headphones


A lot of you might only recognise these headphones if they were rose gold but I got these in the Iridescent design which I think look beautiful! Unfortunately the covers were scratched but the lovely people at Frends sent me new ones and now they look shiny and sleek.

The leather is actually REALLY soft and the headphones feel really comfortable on. My music sounds fantastic (I don't know all the technicalities of bass and stuff so please don't ask before I embarrass myself) and it's so easy for transportation with it's cute little pouch.

They are quite pricey but if you're looking for some headphones that also look super snazzy you need a pair of these. They have the bigger version called the Taylor's for which you can buy some gorgeous covers for too!

My Current Base


I've been pretty loyal to my Maybelline Fit Me Foundation for quite a while now but I decided I wanted to splurge on my foundation this time. I was very close to buying the NARS Sheer Glow as it seemed pretty perfect but then I saw an ad for this foundation and decided to give it a go. What drew me to it was that it's a 2-in-1. I usually only wear concealer so this would be perfect on those days I just wanted to spot conceal but also great for a full face.

I went to House of Fraser to get matched and was unfortunately matched too dark the first time. Thankfully when I went back they exchanged it for me but make sure you're seriously satisfied with your shade before you buy! It's amazing coverage and so easy to apply. It dries to a satin/matte finish which I'm still getting used to. I'm much more of a dewy skin gal so this is the only downfall. However I now just mix it with the L'Oreal Lumi Magique primer and add some highlighter - and I'm back to my glowy self :)

I think the price point is excellent - £25 for such a great quality foundation is a great price. I also adore the applicator - it's a massive doe foot applicator which lets you dab the foundation straight onto your skin and you can just blend it in. It'll reduce a lot of wastage however I think we'll face a similar issue to the old Urban Decay Primer Potion where the wand couldn't reach the edges! We'll see ;-)

I finally got the Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre and it's gorgeous! So moisturising and blends in really easily. I always assumed it would be really thick and quite hard to work with but it's honestly perfect under make-up. I definitely recommend it!

The Blair Waldorf Blouse


Primark Skirt (old)

As soon as I spotted this shirt in a haul video (Can't remember which!) I knew I needed it. The high neck is so gorgeous and the velvet tie is just too sweet! It's quite pricey at £30 but it's super soft and so nice that it's honestly one of my favourite purchases in a long time. They have quite a few patterns and I really want the gingham one too....dang it Zara!

I paired it with a skirt and some boots to make it smart and I really do feel like Blair Waldorf. All I needed was a headband and a group of minions!
