This weekend has been one of exciting new adventures, and some brilliant buys (on my part). First up, we took Fifi pony riding in Richmond Park. It proved such a success that we had to return on Sunday for another go. Fifi has never been super-confident when it comes to anything physical (there is nothing more guaranteed to produce tears, than the appearance of her scooter when we are in the park), but she really took to riding on her little Shetland pony, and hasn't stopped chatting about it since. Although it is terribly expensive (over £1 per minute people), I am so thrilled to have found something that pushes Fifi's boundaries a little. It's definitely worth trying new things, it's so rewarding when they pay off. We start ballet classes next week....fingers crossed it's such a hit!
I've found a few beauty gems in the last few days. First up is Dermablend cream stick foundation. Designed to conceal acne and even tattoo's, this is a super strength concealer (or foundation) that doesn't look heavy or cakey. Perfect for breakouts or even under eye bags, it sets to a dewy finish and stays put really well.
Next up is Lancome's Eclat Miracle, a serum and highlighter in one, that I have been wearing alone, with a smudge of Dermablend, to give a really fresh, glowy finish. It's not greasy or oily, but boosts radiance and manages to make skin look amazing! I have paired it with Aerin's multi colour for lip and cheek in Sweetpea for a fresh, springtime look.
