My summer style | Jade's picks

In today’s post I thought I’d share some of my summer outfits that I adore. They are very simple but I’m not overly complicated when it comes to accessories and such. Since taking the pictures for this post the weather in England has turned and is now not as sunny nor warm which makes me jealous of Lucy who is currently bathing in the sun on a beach somewhere in Greece. However, I fly to Mallorca next week for ten days so I can’t be too jealous I suppose. 

My summer essentials

I thought I’d share some of my favourites and essentials for the warmer months.

My skin is my biggest insecurity as it’s really not the best so I don’t like to leave the house bare faced but in summer I don’t want to wear a heavy foundation - or any foundation at all. I find that BB creams and tinted moisturisers aren’t enough for me so I prefer to use a good coverage and long lasting concealer. This is a recent purchase from MAC from my trip to London with Lucy a few weeks back. I originally wanted the studio sculpt concealer however they were sold out in my shade - NW 20. That being said I really like this concealer, it’s definitely long lasting and covers my imperfections really well. I also really like the packaging as it has a pump which makes it hygienic. It’s slightly on the pricier side but it’s not so high that I wouldn’t repurchase. MAC’s shade range is also really broad and if you suffer from redness then the NW shades are the way to go. 

A day in London

At the end of last month Lucy and I took a trip to London for the day. Lucy had never been sight-seeing around our country’s capitol before so for her birthday which was a few days before I thought I’d take her to see some of the tourist-y spots.

Our day started super early at 5:45 am and didn’t end until 10 at night but it was such a fun day even if it did rain.

As usual I had my camera with me and thought I’d share some of the pictures I took.
