All-In-One Insta Blur & BB Cream



The Body Shop All In One Creams Kaleidoscope Peonies


I'd been wanting to try these for a while, and recently I've been going through a CC/BB cream phase so I thought I'd pick them up. They were also on offer- usually the Insta Blur is £12 and the BB Cream £14, but if you bought them together in-store you could get them both for £20.

Virginia Woolf 


I first read Virginia Woolf in University. I came across her in a Modernism module and became engrossed with her beautiful, clever and poetic prose.

Being a very lucky gal, I was surprised with a birthday trip to Prague from my boyfriend (thaaanks Jamie). I didn't know too much about Prague, but it turned out to be one of prettiest places I've ever visited. The culture is so interesting & singular compared to other places in Europe I've been to.
