1: Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation // 2. Dior Nude Tan Paradise // 3. Erin Condren Life Planner // 4. Gold Above the Knuckle Rings
Both Dee and Simone have raved about the Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation and I have had it on The List ever since. However, once my sister Aisling picked it up in London and I saw how amazing it looked on her, I was sold! I nearly bought it there and then but, figured it was excessive after purchasing the Diorskin Nude BB Cream so, once I am finished with that, this foundation will be winging its way to me!
Dior bronzers have a really good reputation and when Dee and I saw the Dior Nude Tan Paradise Bronzer/Blusher Duo on-counter, we heaved a collective sigh and began a swatching marathon! This is a beautiful, beautiful product that can be worn as two separate shades or swirled together for a brightening, healthy glow. The packaging is to die for and I'm thinking this might be my Duty Free treat come the end of the month when I fly out!
I make no secret of the fact that I am an organisation freak. Couple that with a deep and genuine love of stationary and, well, you can probably imagine my reaction when I saw the Erin Condren Life Planners. These planner/diaries are entirely customisable and can be as basic or as detailed as you like. They aren't cheap by any means but, for someone who has a lot going on day-to-day and likes to keep a clear mind, it would be a lifesaver to get one! I'm currently working out the logistics on shipping versus having a family member bring one home for me so, watch this space; I'm sure I'll bombard you with info once I get one!
Finally, I have been having a massive love affair from afar with above the knuckle rings. They seem to be having a moment on Instagram/Pinterest/Tumblr and I love how simple and elegant they look. There are loads of options but, this set of 4 thin gold bands are from Etsy.
