Blog of the week!

It's BOTW time again! These always seem to go down well and I get so much lovely feedback from the girls I feature :)

This weeks blog of the week is Stephanie Dreams, written by Steph!

Steph is genuinely one of the nicest girls ever and I love how her posts range from basic fashion, to quirky outfits, lifestyle updates and photography. I love variation and find myself logging onto her blog to read for hours on end to catch up on everything she's written!

If you don't already follow Steph's blog (which I'm sure you do, she's been around for ages, maybe even longer than me!) then get on it. She's a babe!

Manuka Doctor CC Cream

I've been wearing my makeup a lot lighter in the week recently, mostly because I'm too lazy on dark mornings, but also because I wear a lot of heavy makeup at weekends and I like to give my skin a rest when I can.

Until recently I hadn't tried any CC creams because I just didn't 'get' them... Then I read that Millie Manderson (Mackintosh!) was a fan of the Manuka doctor one so I thought, hey, why not give it a go!

This CC cream is surprisingly pigmented and glides onto the skin absolutely flawlessly, it gives just enough coverage to make the skin appear smoother and more radiant, yet still 'make up free'. It's worth mentioning that this can't be used on the eye area so I tend to apply concealer there (which also helps me to look more awake!). I've noticed that since I've been using it Monday-Friday my skin looks significantly healthier so it must be doing something good!

Can you recommend any CC creams?
