London Love & Exciting News

Wednesday, 6 August 2014

On my last visit to London, I just couldn't resist a little look around Liberty's. I say "little look" when in reality, I made a beeline for the beauty hall and- let's face it- I knew I wouldn't be able to leave without a luxe purple bag in tow.
In order to make the purchase as guilt-free as possible, I decided to buy the product I had previously treated myself to but left behind in a restaurant (doh). What? I was replacing lost property, nothing wrong with that...
Let's delve in.
It's a lip butter by Greek brand Korres! No doubt you'll have seen these pigmented little pots of balm all over the blogosphere, but I thought I'd give my two cents nonetheless. Firstly, I LOVE the packaging. Having to rip open pretty boxes in order to get to a product is one of my pet hates- with this, the balm slides out of its little home. I do love a clever design.

Secondly, these are lightweight yet still pigmented enough to leave a pretty tint on the lips. I picked the Mango shade, a seriously pretty corally-orange. They're not so pigmented that you need a mirror to apply them with- you can dab them on with your finger then build them up if you want a more intense effect. They're seriously moisturising which is a massive bonus, and thirdly- they smell INCREDIBLE. This one has a yummy fruity scent, but it's not overpowering, just enough to be able to detect it when you apply.

Korres, I'm sold. Does anyone have any product recommendations from this brand? I'll probably be spending more time than is good for me in Liberty's over the next few months, which leads me on to my good news...

So you may or may not have seen on a post last month that I had gone for an exciting meeting at an office in Soho. Well, several meetings later, said office- which is actually an advertising agency- have offered me a six month PR internship! I start in three weeks and absolutely cannot wait, especially because of the exciting brands I'll get get to work with (Disney and L'Oreal to name a couple... I KNOW)! Plus it's only a few days until we get the keys to our new flat... I'm ridiculously happy about how well everything is coming together!
