If you are afraid of clowns then perhaps look away now! After seeing the film at the weekend, I immediately knew that I wanted to do some It nail art so here it is, I hope you like it! You can see some of my previous nail art HERE if you like that sort of thing…

The Urban Decay Naked Heat palette has been one of the biggest beauty releases of 2017 and I am leading the charge on that bandwagon. When I first heard the news of an upcoming Naked palette I wasn’t overly excited as I have more than enough nude-toned palettes… but then I saw the teaser photos with all those glorious warm-toned shades and I knew I was done for.

This week has felt so long so I’m very happy to be writing my Friday Faves! The weather may be utterly miserable but I’m in a fantastic mood as my skin is finally looking a little better after this week’s flare up (more on that here) and later today I’m heading out for Hayley‘s hen do with Jane and Kirsty which should be a lot of fun: gossiping, talking beauty, and putting the world to rights over afternoon tea and cocktails. The dream! What are you up to today?

I’ve had a few messages from people asking if I would be reviewing the Essie Fall 2017 collection and I’m happy to say it is so worth the wait. This collection is inspired by the 90s which – as an 80s baby – I am LOVING. There’s a definite Clueless vibe with the nails and it’s making me want to watch the film immediately. There is also a 3 for 2 deal on essie polishes at the moment, so just let that percolate while you peruse the amazing swatches below… #enabler

Today’s post is all about going to the doctor when you suspect you may have rosacea. I have a lot of blog posts that talk about how to live with rosacea but I realised that a lot of worry and confusion comes before you know whether you actually have the condition!

Some of you may have noticed that there was no Skincare Shake Up post last month. I ended up extending my holiday in France at the last minute and by the time I got back into London I had missed the beginning of the month change over. I didn’t want to try out products for less than a month because I like to give things a proper test, so I just started my new skincare routine when I got home and tried it out for half of July and all of August instead. And here is that routine in full…
