And I dreamed of spring


I'm fed up of the cold now. As much as I love my wooly jumpers and boots, I'm ready for a Vitamin D fix. The weather does finally seem to be on the turn (hooray) so I've started to break out some of my more spring appropriate products. 

My friend Anneke studies in Dublin (I know you are reading this! Thanks!) and kindly bought me my first Charlotte Tilbury lippie for Christmas (as they have a counter in Brown Thomas- I'm so jealous!). She knows I love a 50s nude pout but that in the summer, I reach for my orange colours. Coachella Coral is the perfect mix of the two. One coat gives a better than nude shade and two gives a juicy coral. It's perfect with a flick of liner and highlighted cheeks for a go-to everyday shade. The consistency of the lip stick is just gorgeous and I love pulling the lips out of my bag- that packaging!!! This may be my first Charlotte lipstick but certainly not my last. 

I have to admit I love most of the Katy Perry fragrances. They are surprisingly wearable and smell very grown up. With top nots of pink freesia, violet and blackcurrant blossom, the perfume is sweet but still light. The dry down really allows the violet to be smelt to its full bloom. A great scent for an array of ages that won't break the bank and like my lipstick, a joy to pull out my handbag!

Now for the weather truly to change so I can get the sandals out...
