1 Beauty shot copy
Introducing my current favourite beauty buys and a little kawaii kitsch too! I was on the look out for a new blush and was keen to try and track down one of the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes. After a bit of research I read a post which preferred the Clinique cheek pops to the Tarte ones so I made sure to pop by the Clinique counter the following day.  I was pretty won over by the daisy design when I saw them in store and I ended up picking this shade in Rosy PopThe daisy print is actually stamped quite deeply into the pan, so it will take quite a lot of uses before the design starts to wear away. I love the minimal clear packaging too. Definitely one of my favourite beauty product at the moment!

I'm a big fan of Japanese brand, RMK and I went to an event a few months ago at the counter in Selfridges, Birmingham. They gifted us a couple of generous samples - including this lipgloss. It's got a really lovely strawberry scent and I love wearing it over sheer lipsticks. This RMK stuff has a cute swirly design but as you can see, I've used it so much that it's starting to lose the pattern. I like this gloss because it's not too sticky or glossy and really compliments some of the natural lipsticks that I tend to wear.

Next up is this insanely good Korres body milk. It's quite a small tube for the price you pay - sort of toothpaste sized but it smells incredible. I read that the scent is very similar to Viktor & Rolf flower bomb which I've always found a bit too sweet but I like this Korres stuff! The floral notes work really well in a lotion form and I like that Korres is one of those paraben, silicon and phthalate free brands. Always a good thing.

Lastly it's Rilakkuma! Similar to Sanrio, I have collected some random stuff since I was a child with this bear face. I have had stationary, cushions, phone cases and now here is something else to add to all the kawaii kitsch. Over the weekend I found myself in Artbox and purchased this little dish which is definitely made for soy sauce but I rather like using it as a little ring dish. It's tiny but oh so cute!

One more Bournemouth post for you guys! Last week, as soon as I spotted these colourful beach huts, I knew I had to get them in a blog post - they're a photographers favourite right? I popped my camera into the hands of my sister Hailey (who I managed to photograph, I love her Adidas t-shirt!) and we got a few snaps before we had our fish and chips.

Along the 7 miles of beach at Bournemouth, there are hundreds of colourful beach huts all along the coast. They range from bright primaries to pastels (definitely Dulux colour chart territory) and some fun Cath Kidston ones too. As you can see, I couldn't decide which ones I liked best! It would be fun to hire one of these beach huts one day as some of them have electricity and I saw some very happy families sitting around with cups of tea and tucking into some food. Jealous me? Well - who wouldn't want a cup of tea and a cooked breakfast on the beach?
