Next to Nothing by Mac

A makeup brand that I have recently fallen in love with, is Mac. The moment that I bought my first eye shadow, I knew that this was not just a fling...but something serious. After all, I am not that kind of girl. 

My make up bag includes a few eye shadows, some lipsticks, a concealer and my latest purchase is their Next to Nothing Face Colour. It was last month that I noticed the poster with the beautiful A. Vikander and I needed to find out more about this product. I popped into Harrods for a skin demo and all my questions were answered by the skilled Mac makeup artists.  

For a person who does not like wearing heavy foundation this product is great and ticks all the boxes. It is a moisturizing tinted cream with nourishing ingredients and opalescent microspheres, bringing out my skin's luminosity whether worn under makeup or alone. It gives a sheer, balmy perfection. Exactly what I need!

Try it out and let me know what you think. 

Have a great weekend!

Ruskin Bags

As I was reading the Evening Standard magazine this morning, I stumbled across an ad about a brand I had never seen before: RUSKIN. The Ruskin Tweed designs immediately caught my eye and I visited the brand's website to find out more. 

The company's idea was born in England out of a desire to create a unique collection of bags that would harness the potential in the wool of the rare breed Herdwick sheep, reared on the mountains of the English Lake District. 

My favorite model is the Quentin in Black made out of Ruskin Tweed. It comes with an adjustable leather shoulder strap, it is naturally water resistant and most importantly it has silver studs to protect the leather bottom.

All Ruskin bags are designed and developed with passion and manufactured with precision by traditional bag makers in Italy. I love it that this brand combined the British materials with Italian craftsmanship.

Check out the website here. The company offers complimentary worldwide shipping on all orders!

Have a great weekend!
