This Week's BFL Favourites #1

I wanted to start writing a weekly round-up post of my favourite beauty, fashion and lifestyle moments of my week to share and summarize interesting findings or thoughts I've had over the past week.

This week's beauty favourite has been L'Oreal's Skin Perfection Radiance Revealing Exfoliator Facial Wash which I picked up from Superdrug earlier this week despite the fact I was meant to have a spending ban this month - naughty me! I have been using it every morning this week except on the days that I've stayed at my boyfriend's house, which suits me as I don't want to exfoliate every single day as I have very sensitive skin. Although my skin is usually very sensitive to exfloiators, L'Oreal's is very gentle on my skin and still does a great job at exfoliating without any harsh scrubbing. After use my skin does feel fresh and clean and after a few days of using my skill is noticeably less dull even on the mornings I haven't used it.
My fashion favourite this week was spotted on Twitter in a tweet by Burberry. I'm a huge fan of glitter and embellishment and this image of Burberry's embellished skirts on their SS14 campaign shoot made my heart ache they are so fabulous! The beautiful spring colours, plus the glamorous gem and beading is a recipe for gorgeous SS14 fashion; definitely I trend I will be sporting and supporting next season. 

The weeks lifestyle favourite has been The Body Book by Cameron Diaz. I have been obsessed with beauty and lifestyle books recently and this has been my most recent book buy. Inside it has advice and information on fitness, nutrition and the general health of your body. It's written quite colloquially, and is a very easy casual read which is great when it is giving scientific information as you don't get lost in the technical language. Some chapters do rabbit on a teeny bit too much, but they all come to a point in the end giving information clearly and in a way that doesn't overload you with facts. It is overall a great read with valuable information about how to keep your body happy.

Lots of love,
