Have you ever tried to get a good selfie in the light inside V&A? It’s rather hard! Anyhow, I like this one I managed to grab cozied up beside a small statue yesterday. I was out to meet a friend, browse the Tim Walker exhibition (been 3x now, see something new every time!) and do a bit of shopping. Speaking of gifts and shopping, I recently met the wonderful Bubu Skincare, founder Marianne and got to experience these amazing sheet masks in action. The active ingredients are actually IN the mask and react to the temperature of your skin. The masks sparkle with tiny glitter made from diamonds, which to be honest made me sigh with relief as I’m actually very worried about the carbon footprint of my previous glitter addiction…. The formulas include a lip plumper, a T-zone mask, a hydrating mask, an exfoliating mask, and a pollution busting mask. My kids are already campaigning for them but these are definitely for me and my friends this Christmas… At £7 a mask these are an inexpensive but luxurious indulgence perfect for gifting.

OK, so a selfie at Harrods is also a challenge but I managed to get this one near the doors on my way out… I wanted to show off my smokey eye look created with my Eye Candy Smokey Palette. This is a great collection of shades (both mattes and shimmers) in a slim portable case with a brush that’s perfect for popping in your handbag for short haul travel when you need to pack light. It’s an absolute steal at £9.99! Get it here.
I’m also test driving using face brushes to apply my liquid foundation ( a blend of 2 different shades of the elf foundation) for the first time. I chose to try out a brand called So Eco because they are PETA accredited, cruelty free and have an emphasis on being ethical and responsibly sourced. Ive been pleasantly surprised how soft and natural looking the finish is and the brushes are super soft. They also have a full range of bath products and hair brushes I’d love to try. At only £20 for the set this is an excellent value and would make a great gift for anyone who wears makeup! Get it here
