beauty review: lip balms

I'm always saying that I'm not a beauty expert, but actually I do consider myself a bit of a pro when it comes to lip balms. Ever since I took a course of Roaccutane for my skin around seven years ago (I won't go into it here but suffice it to say that I absolutely recommend it for any acne sufferers), one of the long-term side effects for me has been dry lips. It's annoying, yes, but I consider it a small price to pay for clear skin (if you've ever had really bad skin, you'll know that it's hard to underestimate the joy of that).

hands free

Zara black jumpsuit

I'm kind of obsessed with this rucksack. It's pretty much got everything going for it. It's large enough to fit all your essentials in, yet not so large as to be cumbersome. It's got all the hands free benefits of a rucksack, but is still smart, chic and work appropriate. It's butter soft leather and a beautiful pale shade of grey. And it was in the sale! OK, I'll stop now, but you can tell why this baby has barely left the crook of my arm since I bought it...

the july wish list

July's wish list includes some big earrings, because I can't get enough of those right now, a beautiful bronzing palette and a luxurious silk kimono, because who doesn't need one of those?

cactus addict

cacti

If you follow me on Instagram you'll realise I have a pretty obsessive personality, and that is mostly evident in my taste in interiors. Two things you will find hundreds of in my flat: Diptyque candles and cacti. I probably only bought my first cactus about three years ago, and it wasn't until I moved into my flat a year and a half ago that I really started stocking up. But since then my obsession has steadily grown, to the point where I buy one probably every other week and I've pretty much reached saturation point. Two things struck me when I assembled them all for these photos: firstly, yeah I do have a lot of cacti crammed into a two bed flat, don't I? And secondly: how empty and lifeless the rest of my flat looks without them.

the joy of the jumpsuit

Zara black jumpsuit, Mango perspex sandals and 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli medium burgundy bag

This jumpsuit is one of those pieces which after wearing it a few times, you realise it's so perfect you wish you'd bought two. It's that elusive combination of smart yet comfortable and versatile yet standout. Whenever I'm travelling with work I'll always wear this on the last day, because it's ideal workwear but still comfortable enough to fly home in. Paired with my new absolute favourite Perspex strap shoes - which are also beautiful yet supremely comfortable - it's pretty much my go-to outfit in this warm weather.
