We all know that I flipping love essie nail varnishes and have done for a really long time. So you can probably imagine just how excited I was to get my paws on the beautiful essie Summer 2017 collection*.

For the past 3 weeks I’ve been in the south of France and I was really restrained when it came to choosing the make up I would take. I brought so many books (plus all of the stuff I needed for blogging) that my suitcase space was seriously limited. So here are my summer make up staples – the products I’ve worn pretty much every day and have loved.

This edition of my Friday Faves comes all the way from the south of France. I’m visiting my parents for just under three weeks and I am absolutely loving it. I’m getting lots of work done, I have spare time to read which is lovely, I’m sleeping better, my rosacea is calmer … please don’t make me come home!
