My Little Apple Family

IMG_4042

I love technology, but I love Apple technology even more. Cliché or what? There has always been something about the crisp white finish and delicate keypads that have me swooning every time I see an Apple PC.

Besides looks, the reason I turn to Apple when it comes to laptops, phones and accessories; boils down its creative suite and it’s ability to multi-task. Exporting videos in Final Cut Pro, while photo editing and uploaded content online constantly is a task I am sure any good PC will do with the right equipment. However, with Apple it’s all in one place. There is no real need (unless you want to) to invest in extra RAM, or a better Graphics Card because the products were built with the correct intentions.

Apple’s Airport Express is the next product on my wish list as I think it would be ideal for travelling and being even more anti-social than I already am.

Get Flawless Foundation Thanks To Laura Mericer

Why hellooooo there Mr Foundation, please step inside my collection.

Laura Mercier’s Flawless Fluid Foundation* is the new kid on the block, offering up it’s improved formula. It a long-wearing, oil free product  that you need for coverage with the moisture BB cream would offer.

The reason I have fallen for this product is because not only does it have a beautiful finish, but it’s dramatically reduced my need for concealer (even after my night shifts). Although I have heard through the grapevine that you should use this product with a wet sponge to achieve a build-able, full coverage finish… I can’t help but use a stippling brush because this Fluid Foundation still manages to work magic.

The only con I can think of, of the top of my head is that it’s a very runny number (I don’t think I’ve ever described something so badly in my life) which can be a hassle when you try applying your foundation at 7am and forget to shake it up. However, the simple solution to this one is just shake it Emily!

If you’re thinking of testing out this product I would recommend heading into a counter because at £34 a pop you need to make sure you’re happy.

12 Items I Always Take Away When I Travel

Travel-travelling-holida-emily-golding

It doesn’t matter if I am going away overnight or for a month I always manage to pack everything – including kitchen sink – into my hand luggage when I travel. Of course not everything needs to come along for the ride, however there are always twelve things I must pack:

BEAUTY

1. Origin’s Moisture Plus Day Cream
2. Shampoo – Obviously – but I do always skip Conditioner
3. Tampons -Durr.
4. Razors
5. Bioderma Micellar Water

EVERYTHING ELSE

1. Scissors (I don’t trust myself with a pocket knife).
2. My iPad for Netflix
3. Notebook & Pen – usually a black ink pen so I can doodle.
4. 1 nude & 1 bold Lipstick
5. Sunglasses
6. A good book.

I also think it’s always a good idea to pack a pair of walking shoes or shoes I don’t mind spending hours in because I love a good wander about.

I FINALLY HAVE TIME TO MYSELF AGAIN

IMG_3768

With 6,000 Button Badges made, I can now have my evenings back (time to start blogging). Even though I have a pile of products to review, and a to-do list as long as my arm – when did I become an adult? – I plan to head home after work; run myself a giant bubble bath, turn on Netflix and be in bed before my little brother.

Saying all of that, I am going to spend the next six hours at work sorting out this weeks content because I have some brilliant new releases to share with you before payday and a free Yoga Holiday up for grabs.

THE SETTING POWDER I RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE

Bourjois-healthy-balance-powderBourjois-healthy-balance-powder

Since this product launched on the market, every time someone has asked me what product to try from the drugstore I have always pointed them in the direction of the Healthy Balance Powder because I trust the brand’s products. Last month, before I headed out on holiday, I picked up this powder to put my own instincts to the test. I was right, this product is truly amazing.

Available in two shade, Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder offers you a demi-matte finish, withe a touch of colour that lasts a good 5-6 hours. For £5 you can’t really go wrong, and the rumors are right… it’s identical to Armani’s Luminous Silk Finish Powder.

NEW HOME INSPIRATION – BEDROOM

It happening… I am moving out! In less than two weeks I shall be snuggled up,  in my own place and trying not to get to excited every time I walk into my kitchen. Pictures to follow. Although I have been fortunate enough to move into a newly renovated house, I still keep finding myself searching Pinterest for some room inspiration.

I have never had a loft conversion before and when I imagine how to utilize  space I seem to be stumped. I know I want to keep my room super-super tidy because of how open planned it is, but how do I store all those shoes?
