Almost Autumn-Ready

I hope everyone had a lovely Bank Holiday weekend here in the UK! With a fair few clothing deliveries arriving at my house (end of the month splurging is my current favourite habit, apparently) I decided to take this lovely wrap dress for a spin around Nottingham's Arboretum for some sunshine and a picnic. One of my favourite and most affordable purchases I've made recently, this dress is seeing me nicely through the last dregs of summer. When autumn arrives, the tights and boots will be at the ready to pair it with!

The Best Affordable Day and Night Creams for Oily Skin

When the heatwave hit England a few weeks back, I had to seriously step my skincare game up. My foundation had been migrating away from the centre of my face by midday: never a good look, but one I'm sure anyone with oily skin can relate to. I made my way into town to purchase my trusty Shine Away Gel by Botanics, only to discover that it had been discontinued in the past month. Still hurting here Boots. Fix it please. 

Left abandoned by my favourite product, I was looking for skincare that was going to keep oil at bay for a reasonable price. Meet Garnier's Moisture Matte and Nivea's Regenerating Night Cream for combination skin.

My Mary Poppins Ambition Fulfilled: The Fiorelli Carlton Tote

This baby is the product of a long search for a bag that would be good for work and weekends whilst also being cute, sturdy, and large enough to have some Mary Poppins-esque magic about it. A working zip was also on the agenda in my search, after spending a month convinced I'd dropped my purse a few streets back since the contents of my bag was pretty much free game. Despite the hefty checklist, the Fiorelli Carlton Tote pulled through: I treated myself for the first time since starting work and dayum did it feel good!
