La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo + Trio

I feel like I don't feature a lot of skin care on this blog, and to be honest it's because I never really had a clue about my skin. I still don't! My skin type used to be oily, oily, oily and nothing else. I'm all about the mattifying powders, the matte foundation, and the non-oily face products. I have been dying to try out the La Roche Posay Effaclar 3-Step Anti-Blemish System ever since I first heard about it... somewhere. I've always had trouble with spotty skin, and this is supposed to be one of the best skin care system. It retails for £32.50 at Boots, but you get 3 full-size products, so it's not that pricey in my opinion.

Au revoir, Paris!

This is the second installment of my Paris trip earlier this month. You catch up on all of the pretty pictures of Part 1 right here. After a long walk down the Champs-Elysés, we decided to stop for a spot of lunch in Montmartre, and we had the most beautiful view of Sacré-Coeur and had crêpes. Why are French crêpes so much more delicious than any other crêpes? I was in complete awe of the Sacré-Coeur (again, missed it the first time I went to Paris), it is such a beautiful building. I could have stood there watching it for ages.

Bonjour, Paris!

If you had told me that I would be visiting Paris, not once, but twice in the span of two years, I would have said they were crazy! I found myself spending three days in the capital city of France at the beginning of the month, and it was just as amazing as the first time. While I visited some of the same sights as last time (this was a work-related trip, so we needed photographs of the main sights), I also got the chance to discover some new places.

Valentine's Day: The Bull's Head

I'm going to lie: I fucking love Valentine's Day. Even when I was single, I loved it. It's a day that gets too much slack from all of the cynics in this world, and I don't understand why we would hate on a day that is all about love. Yes, it's commercialized, but it doesn't have to be. It's a nice day to stop, take a moment, and remember that we're surrounded by good people we love.

A London Day Trip

The boyfriend and I hopped on a train from Birmingham to London last month, and decided to spend a whole day in the capital city. It was a strange day, as the public transport system failed up the entire day (delayed trains, closd tube stations, etc) but we still managed to have a nice day and I know that I'll be back there soon! There's always something to see in London, and I don't think I could ever run out of things to explore.
