Like A Teddy Bear

Say hello to my latest coat acquisition - The Teddy Bear. I am in love with this cosy thing! It has blanket qualities, excellent lapels and deep pockets. I bought it one size larger than usual, (size S is pictured) to allow for thick jumpers - and I personally always enjoy an oversized, slouchy look. Layered over a sheer shirt and tucked into my over-worn (4 year old) Mom jeans, it's a pretty basic, autumnal toned outfit - with the best black accessories

A Beauty Memo

I felt like a super mini beauty post wouldn't be the worst idea, right? Right! 
I've recently found some new favs - that have actually become staples - so I thought I'd share these guys with you. 
When travelling, I always carry this little black mirror by Anna Sui - it's super lightweight & great for daily make-up application, and pretty damn cute to boot. Firstly - I wash my face with the Eau Thermale Avene (god, that's a mouthful) Cleanance Gel - it's a simple cleanser with no nasties. Next up, I use the Mario Badescu Rose Water toner - it smells soooo goooood, and feels like it gets right into the skin. Back to Eau Thermale - I've been fully addicted to 
their Recovery Cream. It's super hydrating, calming, soothing, and doesn't feel oily on my skin. 
I love a few drops of Tan Luxe added in as well, which is great for adding a cheeky natural glow. As someone who doesn't wear heavy foundation, I feel these drops are gonna be a major bonus during the cooler months. 
Shop the items mentioned below!
P.S on those mornings when a certain toddler has kept me up or the moon is causing aggro again, I reach for these eye pads by Skyn before anything else. I adore them.
