Jodi Picoult Novels - I think I picked these up from a charity shop, and I can't believe someone gave them away; Jodi Picoult is already now my favourite author after reading just two of her books! The story lines are dramatic, emotionally hard-hitting, gripping and so real. She writes books that can really change your way of looking at the world and I would absolutely recommend these two - 'Perfect Match' and 'Picture Perfect'.
Clinique Super City Block (40spf) - Last summer I would dread putting suncream on my face, as even the 'facial suncreams' which supposedly mattify your skin would leave my looking super shiny and cause me breakouts the next day without fail. I decided to invest in the Clinique Super City Block; a tinted sunscreen that can be worn alone or under foundation as a kind of primer. The tint doesn't cover a huge amount as it's a very sheer formula, but the product lasts all day, and I did not get burnt once on my holidays. My face also stayed relatively matte even without a powder, and I experienced no breakouts. Needless to say I'm very impressed and will definitely repurchase next spring.
Boots Oil-Absorbing Sheets - These blotting papers have been another summer staple for me. I've kept a pack in my bag everyday for slightly shiny moments; they mattify your face and the sheets are impregnated with salicylic acid - a great acne fighter.
Essie 'Delicacy' - Just one coat of this pretty pink polish gives the effect of a polished manicure. It's got teeny tiny shimmers in it and would actually be a lovely bridal polish.
Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Pink Gold - For some reason this shade of Colour Tattoo is almost impossible to get your hands on, but I finally found one at the back of the Maybelline counter! As with the other shades, using a primer is essential, otherwise they crease like crazy, but it's the most gorgeous colour. I've been wearing it as a base, and blending a medium brown shadow into the crease just for definition.
