Best Foundations For Summer

I have to be honest, makeup becomes one of my least favourite tasks once Summer comes around. Spending 30 minutes putting makeup on that will just end up leaving you greasy and shiny in a couple of hours? No thanks... When I do opt to put makeup on, I have to make sure that I'm protecting my skin from the sun. Here are my 3 favourite SPF foundations for the summer!


1. L'Oreal True Match Foundation - This is the heaviest coverage out of the 3, so I usually only reach for this on special occasions that require more makeup. This one contains SPF 17.

2. Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation - This one is by far my favourite out of the 3. I have used this foundation, on and off for about 5 years now. I'm always trying new ones, but I always end up coming back to this one after a couple of weeks. This one is a medium coverage, with an SPF 20, making it my perfect day-to-day wear foundation!

3. Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturiser - This is my 'it's too hot let's just slap some makeup on' foundation. I am currently using a tester, but when I use this, I use very little product because I am just aiming to even out my skin tone, not cover or conceal. This one has SPF 15 in, making it perfect for the days you want to protect your skin, but still look fresh faced!

The Prettiest Primark Find!

I am a self confessed Primark addict. They have so many, pretty - yet affordable items that always fit the newest trends.


I recently picked up this little beauty for £25. It is the perfect light jacket for Summer! It is in a beautiful blue-grey shade, made from an incredibly soft faux suede material and finished with silver hardware. I've been adding this jacket to plain outfits that need jazzing up slightly!

My favourite way to wear this, is over an all black outfit -My black ripped jeans, a black slouchy t-shirt and white plimsolls. It adds a pop of colour and makes the outfit a little more fun! I've also recently been adding my new sunnies from urban outfitters to make it look a bit more styled and put together!

I know this post is very short - but I just wanted to show my best find from Primark in a while!

My Dream Bedroom for Less

I'm always wanting to change the decor of my room. Having a clean and pretty bedroom is one of the main factors in keeping me motivated! I have collaborated with Blind Hut to create this blog post on my take on Summer interior trends to create my dream bedroom!

Block Colours


As you can tell, I am a fan of mixing patterns. I tend to mix pretty pink patterns with bold black and white prints. I added the pink 'plate' style pattern with a variation of black and white cushions, such as  the geometric one from Ikea (middle back), the 'R' initial cushion (gift) and the stitched chevron cushion (Primark). To break up these patterns, I added 2 dusty pink velour square cushions from Primark, with a rose gold foiled square cushion to add some glam!

Product Displays


I always have my perfumes all lined up and on show. At the minute, I have them next to my new Ion light up turntable which I snagged in the HMV sale for £50 a few weeks back! I'm in love with it! I always like to keep luxury product carrier bags, such as this one from Harvey Nicholls. Not only do they look pretty, but they can also be a discreet way to store boring items. For example, this one holds paracetamol and ibuprofen in case I feel ill during the night! Plus, they're free when you buy makeup and I'm sure everyone has some lying around the house! If you don't - it's another excuse to buy that lipstick you've been wanting...


Ok, so I'm completely aware that you can see the washing on the line outside the window, but please ignore it! I always have items on my windowsill because I think it looks so pretty. I currently have some of my book collection which I have yet to read, with an hourglass I bought in the BHS sale for £3 (similar here) with a Clementine and Honey candle from Primark, and one of the candles from a Next set I received as a gift. I also have my cacti from Ikea, the Daisy Picking and Seaside Stroll Zoella Lifestyle candles and a hanging plant from Wilkinsons!

I'm absolutely in love with my room at the minute and incredibly happy that I managed to save and get most of my items from Primark Home!
