At the beginning of the year we spent three weeks in Japan and it was flipping glorious. I have so many blog posts planned to share my tips and experiences but the most pressing for me was the ones focusing on beauty… mainly because I can’t use the products until I’ve photographed them! So let’s kick off proceedings with a post all about my repurchased Japanese beauty products.

Japan Repurchased Beauty: the products I couldn't wait to rebuy. What make up and skincare to buy in Japan.

Wow it’s been a while since I’ve done a Friday Faves post! But don’t worry, I’ve been keeping track of the things I want to share with you, so this is a summary of the best things I’ve found over the past eight weeks. I’d love to hear what your favourites things are at the moment, so feel free to leave me a comment below!

What I'm loving this week: Year Of Yes (Shonda Rhimes), Trilogy face mask, Myths & Legends podcast and Pixi MatteLast lipsticks

I was in two minds about doing a Skincare Shake Up for January. For most of the month I was in Japan, which means that I was relying on products that I’d already used. If you have sensitive or awkward skin, you will know that a holiday can cause all sorts of issues with your skin: flights, change in diet, the water (hard water is the devil!), disrupted sleep, temperature changes… it all adds up. So when I travel, I tend to stick with what I know.

I’ve had my eye on the embroidered trend for a while: jeans, bags, boots, knitwear… I love it all. So I was very excited to add this beautiful jumper to my wardrobe. And I’m even more excited to tell you that it came from somewhere very unexpected… Zara Kids. (I’m aware people will be cursing my name right now but stick with me!)

Zara Kids... not just for kids! (embroidered floral jumper, skinny jeans, ankle boots, grey rucksack)
