London: Borough Market

Today myself and Gabby decided it would be a great idea to eat our way round London. 
Starting with crepes in Covent garden, I plumped for a classic: Nutella, white chocolate and strawberries. 

Gabs went all out with a mars bar, nutella, strawberry's, white chocolate and ginger biscuits!
I washed mine down with a passionfruit smoothie and Gabs went for strawberry and banana, a thumbs up all round for brekkie! 

Moving swiftly on we headed to Borough market, a metropolis for foodies alike.
They literally have everything. Fish? got it. Meat? You name it. Pudding? By the bucket load.

The whole place is full of the most amazing smells and colours with the stands handing out tasters of what they had to offer, It was my heaven!

We kicked things off with a couple of plump oysters before perusing the rest of the market, then actually returned to the same stand for a couple more oysters and some juicy scallops smothered in bacon and lemon juice.

The most amazing pumpkin carving!

Defiantly worth a visit!
I cant wait to return.

Autumn Base...

So as the weather changes so does our skin, and generally we start to reach toward a heavier creamier base for the winter months.

I however have stuck with the cream but strayed from the heavier coverage in my desperate bid to let my skin breathe, and granted this is tricky when the air its breathing is heavily polluted.

After scouring the internet I decided on the hugely hyped Nars tinted moisturizer and creamy concealer, the tinted moisturizer is in my book the best of both worlds, a lovely glow-y base with decent coverage whilst maintaining a weightless feel. Only downside is that I do find primer essential with this products otherwise it did slip throughout the day.

The concealer is also a cracker, it covers but without looking matte and cakey. You can also use it as a slight highlight on the tops of the cheekbones for a 'I woke up like this' glow.

Ahhh Nars, you've done it again.

Kensington Gardens

Sorry for the variance in photo quality, the lighting was poor and I just couldn't get to grips with my camera settings!

Anyway myself and Richa took a trip to Kensington Gardens for a a stroll and to make the most of London in Autumn, the park is full of dog walkers, keen runners and tourists snapping away.
