Mariage Frères - Just Opened in Covent Garden

A couple of weeks ago I was strolling around Covent Garden with an aim to visit the recently opened Tea emporium on King Street which comes straight from Paris. I might be a bit of a coffee addict, but when it comes to tea, my taste buds are quite specific.

The brand's largest branch is housed in a beautiful five-storey listed Georgian townhouse on Covent Garden's King Street. It offers the largest collection of teas in the world and you simply need to visit it to experience it all. In this visit the tea of my choice was the Yuzu Temple green tea. 

Words from M.F tea house: 
"This surprising blend, with its evocative name, is based on a fine green tea. It boasts the pleasantry round acidity of citrus fruit, the aromatic richness and peppery notes of mild spices plus the rind of real Yuzu (halfway between lemon and mandarin orange). Resolutely exotic".

Have a great Sunday, drink tea and keep warm!

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!
