Things to do this week – wrapping together my current favourite products, places and recipes for you to add to this weeks to-do list.
TAKE A STROLL DOWN THE MAGAZINE ISLE: Take a flick through InStyle & Marie Claire whilst you’re at it. You can find a little shoot I did with Maxfactor amongst the beauty advertorials!
TRY THIS: The Body Shop Vitamin E Mask is by far one of my favourite skincare products I’ve ever discovered (and it’s a budget product people – the unthinkable has finally happened)! I like to use it in the morning, applying it first thing after washing my face, leaving it on whilst I get on with my morning routine. It’s soothing and super hydrating on my forehead which is currently dehydration central. Dehydration lines? What dehydration lines?!
DRINK THIS: I’m a big fan of breakfast smoothies at the moment, fruit is not for me, but a little vegetable goodness mixed with something a bit more creamy and I’m a happy chap. For the past few weeks I’ve been loving making my Mint Chocolate Chip Breakfast Smoothie – it’s refreshing, sweet and very green. I find breakfast smoothies really interesting to make – once you’ve make a few you get the hang of which types ingredients work well together and you can start to improvise a bit – making “nothing for breakfast” days a thing of the past!
WATCH THESE: Another one from Lisa Eldridge this week, but with her Japanese Makeup Look going live, how could I not feature it? Japanese beauty products (and culture in general) really intrigues me and this video only fuelled a growing obsession. Then we have Orphan Black – season three has started (though not available on UK Netflix yet) and I feel I owe somewhat of a public service announcement to ensure no one misses it! Finally, a shameless plug for my latest vlog – I’ve been working more on a “several days rolled in to one” type of vibe. It makes for a slightly better scope of my life, but does mean sometimes vlogs will alternate between Tuesday and Thursday depending on content.
