My First Christmas & NYE in Hong Kong

So we finally took the plunge and booked our flights to Hong Kong! I'm so excited to be spending this Christmas and New Years Eve in Hong Kong this year...not only that, it will be my first ever Christmas out there! The amount of times I've been, I have never spent Christmas there so I am super duper excited!

If you have never been before, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated cities in the world, but also  one of the most amazing cities I have been to (I know I am biased right there!). Shopping haven of the world and delightful food kingdom - I am actually most looking forward to all the delicious and yummy food out there and am all ready to's Christmas after all ;)

Of course, I can't forget the shopping that will be unmissable (if a bad thing for my purse) I know I will spendng sooo much so am currently trying to hold back at the moment. HK is known for shopping and everything is so affordable, especially beauty items, so I always make sure that I stock up on everyday products and tools. Having never been for Christmas, I am excited to shop for Winter clothing there too (I will ban myself from buying stuf from stores such as Zara and H&M though...!)

So if you have been following me on Twitter/Instagram, you may have heard me going on about my love for Balenciaga, and of course counting down to pick up my B bag! After my friend picked it up for me from Vegas, I've been counting down the days to pick it up -finally I am able to get my hands on this smoochy baby!!! Obviously this is the main reason I am heading back to HK... ;) Can't wait...will defo share with you when I pick it up.

This year has flown by so fast, and before I know it, it will be time to fly....yet I have so much going on and to prep before I am even ready. All in all, this has been an amazing year so far and I know it will only get better for 2013. Apparently, dreams do come true...looking forward to the exciting times ahead <3

Thanks for reading lovelies & Happy Thanksgiving to all those in the US xoxo

Laura Mercier Oil Free Fondation Primer

Hey y'all! It's been a while since I last posted - work has been super hectic on the lead up to Xmas so every evening, with the little time I have, I just spend it lazying about and watching movies and series! >.<

Well I'm back, and after bleeding my purse again recently on new cosmetic products I figured I better tell you guys all about it! At £28, it is definitely worth a post hey? Yes, I am talking about the much raved about foundation primer by Laura Mercier. Casually strolling through the make-up department of Selfridges (as a girl does) I couldn't resist any longer and caved in to getting this primer:

The Laura Mercier Oil Free Foundation Primer

I have been looking for a new primer for ages, one that actually does what it is made for; creating a flawless base for foundation application and long-lasting make-up.

Overall, this felt more like a lotion than your typical primer however I have to say I found that my make-up did last longer throughout the day and applied more evenly. Even though this was meant to be oil-free, I did find that the t-zone began to get oily towards the end of the day and needed powdering.

It is one of the better foundation primers I have used, however for the price tag, I did expect my skin to
be super-model-esque flawless...nonetheless I loved it and think it will be my go-to primer for now =)

Do you use primers and if so which is your fave?

Until next time.....xoxo
