This has just gone on sale in John Lewis: funnily enough it’s inspired by a USA ski resort which seems odd for a summer release, but I think it’s all about the healthy glow and fresh look rather than the activity! Inside you get six shades of matte, shimmer and metallic in the palette, Extreme Party Mascara in Blackest Black, a shimmery bronzer, pink shimmer shot gloss and a long wear gel eyeliner…plus a wrist strap purse. At £69 (bearing in mind the Navy & Nude palette is £49 on its own) this seems remarkably good value. It’s HERE.
The innovative new brand, Concotion, is now available – I love what they’re doing in allowing your to adapt basic (very good) formulas with a shot of what you think your hair needs at any given time. My hair goes through ‘good’ phases and ‘less good’ phases, shall we say and I love the concept of adapting to what I need when. The shots are very reasonable at £1.50 each – you simply pop them into the shampoo base (there are several to choose from) and there you have it. My hair always fades a bit in the sun, so I’d choose the Beautiful Brunette Superserum shot to add in during the summer just to keep fade away, but then come autumn, I’d opt for the Gimme More Moisture Superserum. See? Simples. It’s worth having a browse of the site (I’m forgiving them for having spelled my name wrongly! Guys, it’s Jane with no Y!) to see what serums would be best for your needs. Go HERE.
The last petite maxi dress I bought from ASOS has now sold out otherwise I would be recommending it again.. I LIVE in it! You know when you don’t want to wear anything else and looks like you’ve only got one clothing item in your wardrobe? That. So now, because I can’t go about in exactly the same dress for the entire summer, I’m on the hunt for at least one more cooling maxi that gives the same comfort.. I haven’t ordered the one above (£45) yet, but I’m going to.. I love the fit of ASOS Petite.. at 5 foot 3 they tend to just skim the top of the ankle so there is a bit of flexibility if you’re an inch taller or an inch smaller.. i.e. it won’t sweep the floor for you. I just like the simplicity and looseness of this – accessorizing (am thinking my chunky coin bracelet and gold Fitflops) is a doddle. It’s HERE.
