Firstly, a big thank you to Suzi for this post idea – I am slowly but surely working my way through the suggestions I’ve been getting on my contest, so if you want a little say in what is posted on my blog, head over here to tell me and be in with a chance of winning many a pretty prize! Shameless plug, sorry :p *hangs head in shame* So without further ado, here are my Friday Favourites from this week:

I am the biggest Scrooge on summer ever. I think it is crazily overrated, and I just dislike it in general. I don’t mind the heat, I am all for heat – I just prefer it abroad when I have things to do and explore haha. The rain and odd thunderstorm this week was so refreshing, I love listening to the sound of rain! Genny recommended me this website, where you can sit and just listen to rain sounds. Thumbs up!

Some of you who follow my Twitter will know that I went to London for an interview with ASOS magazine yesterday! Who doesn’t love a bit of ASOS?! (Speaking of which, who has been indulging in some sneaky sales shopping this week?) The interview was for a work experience placement, so fingers crossed for that, I want another placement by the end of this year :) The office was all sleek and shiny too, it felt so professional and nice to be there.

I’m sure by now, most of my readers will have watching the final (sob!) episode of The Hills. If you haven’t seen it, don’t fret, I won’t ruin it for you. 112 episodes later, I’m so sad and a teeny bit gutted that it’s all over…  And the ending is ridiculously shocking! What’s next, you ask? Well I’m sure MTV will milk it for all its’ worth with many repeats and little ‘Deleted Scenes’ filler shows, which I also love watching haha! I’m sure The Hills will be around for a little longer!

I can’t believe I only just ‘discovered’ Lily Lolo! I saw a little section about Lily Lolo’s Finishing Powder in this week’s more! magazine, and was curious to see what other mineral powders they had on offer, and I’m glad I did! Although my bank balance might be a little more unhappy haha. They have an amazing range of mineral foundations, finishing powders, bronzers, blushes and more. I’ve never tried any mineral cosmetics before, and came extremely close to trying out some Bare Escentuals powder a couple of weeks ago, but got scared silly when I got to the door! :( So I placed a (slightly extravagant) order today, which I’m excited for! I’ll probably do some sort of review within the next few weeks once I’ve had a play around with them.


I will never stop raving about Lancome skincare products! Ever. For the past two months, I’ve been using a new skincare regime, consisting of products solely from Lancome’s Hydra-Zen range, although once in a while, I use my Lush fresh face mask, and my Laneige multi-cleanser. I will be doing a more in-depth review/skincare post next week, but omg~ I just can’t get over how amazing their eye gel and night creams are! Many Brownie points to you Lancome, you amaze me again!

So! A short but sweet Friday Favourites this week :) I shall leave you to enjoy your evening in peace now! And if you have a spare 3 minutes or so, give this cover version of Wedding Dress a whirl! I know Korean music isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but this was painstakingly translated and recorded for Youtube and is SO good. :)


  1. Oooh, i love the idea of a Friday Favourites post.

    I was shocked at The Hills ending too, i totally wasn't expecting that!

    Good luck with the outcome for the ASOS interview, i'm sure you did fab. :)


  2. @felicityxoxo: I know! I cried so many times in that episode as well, I'm so lame haha! :) I would've thought the episode would be a little longer though, just to round off the entire 'The Hills' saga. Thank you honey! xxxxx

  3. YAY!! friday favourites you'll have to keep everyone updated on your ASOS adventure ;) xx

  4. I loooove Lily Lolo products! I've been using their foundation for about 3 years, and I've got a couple of blushes and finishing powders too!

  5. Ooh i am in love with taeyangs song! have you heard of his more recent one? i like korean music, i get alot of it from watching drama's!

    lovely post, and good luck with the work placement! xx

  6. hahah, i'm a complete summer scrooge too.
    but i can't stand the heat. no tolerance for it whatsoever! Dx
    i'm ancomplete autumm/winter girl.

    plus, in the summer, you can't have nice hot lush baths and use giant snuggly towels. so what's the point in that? booo, haha. xxx

  7. @LittleMissKing: Of course I will :) If I get the placement, there'll be lots more intern diaries also!

    @Gillian: I'm so excited for my order to come through, I've only heard good reviews from them, not a bad review in sight! Can't believe I just found out about them though :S

    @Winnie's Wardrobe: Saaame, this is one of my all-time favourite songs :) Yes, I have his solo album, I love almost all of the songs on there! Haha yeah that's what I do too, and I like previewing/sampling albums on :)

    @Chloe: Yay *hi5* There's nothing I love more than a hot bath, a hot chocolate and a good book, I'm secretly an old woman :')


  8. That rain website it AMAZING. I love the sound of rain! Thanks for posting about it! x

  9. I just want to agree with you on Lancome. My mom got me a whole set of their skincare products about five years ago and I have been in love with them (and the proud owner of very clear skin) ever since!


  10. @Helen: You're very welcome :) I just listen to it when catching up on blogs etc. It's so calming and nice-sounding!

    @Emily: I've used Lancome products for about 4 or 5 years too, and can't find the same effect with any other brands. Will be doing an in-depth Lancome post soon honey :) Also, been following your blog for a while, lovely work!


  11. I would like to exchange links with your site
    Is this possible?

  12. @Anonymous: Send me an email with some more information and I'll get back to you! :) x
