My day-to-day makeup staples never really change. Once I find something I love, it takes a pretty outstanding product to turn my head. My current favourites include a small selection of products which right now, I'd say were some of my all time favourites; and they're so easy to use that a full face of make up can can take as little as 10 minutes.
I've been promising this review for over a year, but every time I sit down to write it, I don't feel ready. Mainly because I keep buying new products from The Ordinary that I feel I should give a fair trial before I review them...
Here on my blog, I want to talk to you about all of the things I love. But as a consumer, I also want to hear about the things people don't love so much, so in a new series called 'Spotlight on', I'll be talking about the products I love as well as those I didn't get on so well with. Each post will focus on a particular brand or category and for the first post in the series, I'm going to talk about Charlotte Tilbury.
I first discovered this recipe one lazy Saturday morning, watching Simon Hopkinson's latest programme on the BBC. The recipe was simple and the end result looked so delicious that I quickly rewound the segment, grabbed a notebook and scribbled down the method.

Having some me-time is so important to get me into the right frame of mind for the week ahead, so I spend a little time on myself with a relaxing skincare routine before curling up with a good book or in front of the TV.
Every once in a while, a miracle product comes along that makes you wonder why you hadn't heard of it before. This happened to me recently with Cicaplast Baume by La Roche-Posay.
I've been meal planning for a while now, and whilst it's something I have to schedule time for, it's something I've really started to enjoy. Not only do I get to spend time flicking through my many (MANY) recipe books, it also means I don't have to worry about what I'm going to cook for dinner when I get in from work late.
If you're anything like me and you struggle to even think about food in the morning, then you'll know how difficult it is to force down an unappealing slice of toast before rushing out of the door. Chocolate seems to be the only thing I never struggle to eat (funny, that) but a bar of Dairy Milk isn't exactly the breakfast of champions...
Let me be honest about something. I'm a sucker for good marketing. I'll be happily scrolling through my Instagram feed as I wind down before bed, then BOOM. There it is.

I can't resist having a little nose and before I know it, I'm researching why I shouldn't buy this life changing product I've never heard of before.
