Did anyone else get an email from Topshop land in their inbox this morning called Which Girl Are You?
So what do you do in London when you want to try something different? Well there’s plenty on offer; London is not a city short of new and interesting experiences. A case in point is Bompas & Parr’s Alcoholic Architecture, recently opened next to Borough Market. I stumbled across it whilst browsing Time Out’s website and booked it on a whim, having heard nothing about it.
As I sit here snuggled under my blanket looking out of the window at a dreary, rainy day, it’s hard to believe it is actually still August. But August it is and what a month it has been. I’ve only just started this blog but the end of every month is a chance for me to look back at what has been good about the past 30 odd days – however quickly it is flying by!
Now let me start this by saying I am a huge Boots No 7 fan – I use their make up products in my daily routine and the skin tone matching tool for the foundation is, quite frankly, bloody genius. Add to that that everything they offer is priced really reasonably and I’m a happy bunny.
The other thing to note is that I am in constant pursuit of the perfect mascara – one that lengthens, separates and stays put all day, in the blackest of blacks. And we all know that the key to a good mascara application is in the brush. Get that right and the rest will naturally follow (with one exception, but that’s for another day).
In my quest for glowing wedding-ready skin, I treated myself to the Clinique Sonic System Cleansing Brush. I had heard great things from my friend Hannah, who told me that her skin completely cleared up, with no under the skin bumps or spots, after using the brush for only two weeks. Needless to say, my expectations were high! I don’t have particularly bad skin and have certainly never had acne, but I am prone to spots around my jawline, a bumpy forehead and an oily t-zone.
Hello, my name is Jennifer Helen and I am a twenty-eight year old girl living in the North East of England. I have had a passion for writing since I have been able to put pen to paper, but never quite found the right outlet for my interest. I am the author of several failed blogs (which doesn’t bode too well for this one) but I am testing myself to stick to writing this year and into the future because I love it and I hope you will too. Whatever I write about, I do it with passion.
