My Burberry

It’s no secret that I am all about those Burberry vibes! So when it came to choosing a reward from work, I excitedly jumped at the opportunity to pick the My Burberry fragrance. Grinning wickedly, I spritzed it eager to relish in the aroma and as anticipated, it instantly evoked happy memories of my favourite Regent Street destination, Thomas’s. My Burberry is not a typical choice for me as I am a Tom Ford Private Blend gal however, this is the scent of Burberry Regent Street and a reminder of many happy London days, therefore I am so pleased and proud to add it to my collection. Coincidently, I had just ordered a Burberry Beauty lipstick from the Full Kisses range – Light Crimson No.517, a beautiful coral pink shade I have been trying to locate after spying in the Covent Garden store back in April. The complimentary next day delivery and gift wrap service is the greatest I have come across, just look at that beautiful packaging!  “My Burberry is a joyful scent that …

21

On Thursday 31st March, I celebrated my 21st Birthday. Who am I kidding? I celebrated my birthday for about three weeks, and it was utterly wonderful. The preparations began back in January, when I went scouting for my gift, the gift I would buy for myself and one that was fitting for a 21st. I initially wandered into Chanel, thinking an iconic Double Flap would be my bag of choice, as I have lusted after one for 10 years. However, I didn’t have the princess moment I was hoping for and swiftly drifted in and then out again of Saint Laurent, again with disappointment. Surprised at my lack of interest thus far yet still eager as ever, I found myself seated elegantly in Christian Dior, supping champagne (something I never usually do!) and admiring a Lady. It was exactly a month later that I purchased my large Lady Dior bag in black lambskin with gold-tone hardware. I felt like Princess Diana and it was romantic and magical… exactly how I imagined and hoped it would …

London Vibes

I’m trying to make myself fall more in love with London, to make the prospect of moving more bearable and actually exciting. I plan to move for work however when it comes down to it, the thought of leaving my countryside upbringing and gorgeous home free from traffic noise, is slightly daunting. Don’t get me wrong I’m sure I will love it, LDN vibes inspire me! But change is change and if I’m honest, it’s always made me slightly nervous… I’ve gone through photographs from last year and collated my faves from Regent Street to hydrangeas! What’s your favourite thing about London? EKD X    

Burberry Beauty

I have been meaning to do a write up of my makeup pieces from Burberry Beauty for so long and luckily it was requested last week by the lovely Eva. I know you’ve heard me bang on about how much I love the Earthy blusher (here), but there are a few other products I am obsessed with too. In addition to that, I also have a few items I’ve been lusting after, so I’ll share my Burberry wish list with you too! Starting with lipsticks, the first I bought was Nude Beige No.01 from the Burberry Kisses collection. I picked this up the week they were released after seeing Lily Pebbles use it after attending a Burberry Beauty event. It looks very nude in the swatch however it is slightly sheer but also still very build-able. I find it looks stunning patted into the lips over lip balm. It’s pretty long lasting, balmy and hydrating and I love the sheer yet pigmented finish. I often keep this in my handbag, so the packaging is pretty scratched! After falling in …

Radiant Winter Makeup

Despite the fact it’s January, I have still been reaching for my summer faves, to brighten up my makeup look and add some much needed warmth and glow to my complexion. I find using a glowy primer is the best first step in achieving summer skin and I like to use the Dior Glow Maximizer, but the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector liquids or the Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow work just the same. I first take a small amount on the tops of my cheekbones and then mix a pump into my base, this way your foundation becomes more radiant and your highlight looks from within. A cream bronzing base is everything when it comes to adding natural warmth to the skin and I love the Chanel Soliel de Tan, but I am also dying to try the YSL Le Teint Saharienne, which seems to work in a similar way. I first work a small amount on to the back of my hand to warm it up and then use an Artis Oval 6 to buff it …

Why I Love Makeup

I was just cleansing my face whilst pondering over potential blog posts and Cult Beauty orders and I couldn’t help but wonder, why I really love makeup. When I open my makeup drawers, I feel inspired. It sounds obscure for a non-makeup lover however, there are two significant reasons why my greatest collection is my makeup collection. Makeup makes me feel beautiful – Yep you guessed it! I often have days where I don’t feel very pretty or confident and so I love to shop my collection and create a look to increase my confidence and make me feel good about myself. This isn’t about covering up my face; it’s about enhancing my features, mood and creating that assured and positive mindset. Makeup allows me to be creative – A lot like writing, styling outfits, makeup looks or reading Vogue all make me feel creative and inspired. It’s a passion; an obsession, something that brings out the best in myself and makes me happy! Makeup is a tool that allows me to alter my look to suit an …

Thomas’s @ Burberry

As I’ve been spending rather a lot of time in London recently, I found it essential to discover my own secret sanctuary that provided both fries and fashion! Burberry opened it’s first ever restaurant this summer, hidden within the Regent Street flagship store. Thomas’s has been the go-to eatery for Vogue editors, Fashion Week goers and now EKD. #thechiclife Last week, I found myself sat by an open fire, supping the seasonal drink recommended by the lovely waiter – a blackberry and pomegranate fizz. A warm basket of sourdough was brought whilst I read Mindy Kalings new book (which I highly recommend BTW) and waited for my cheat day lunch. The food was delightful, the fries were the best I’ve ever had and the restaurant has the most delicate, charming and yet comforting atmosphere. Since the waitresses remembered me from previous visits, they informed me of the new breakfast menu coming in November and gave me an advanced copy to lust over! As you know, breakfast/brunch is my fave and so I’m excited to indulge next month! My …

EKD in London

Recently, I’ve spent rather a lot of time on trains and tubes gallivanting around London. Whether it’s searching out a Brunch destination, rushing to a reservation at Fortnum’s or sweating in Shoreditch, eager to make my first meeting at the Ace hotel, I’ve loved the adventure of it all! I’ve been super busy with work, university and family the past few weeks but it’s been pretty exciting and I’m enthusiastic about what is to come! Here are a few of my favourite moments from the past few weeks… Lets begin with arriving at St.Pancras after a 4.30am start! I arrived at 10am and was so ready to hunt out some breakfast. I found a chic and hidden breakfast destination in Thomas’s at the Burberry flagship on Regent Street. My sister and I had a tour and shopping session in this store two weeks earlier and I remembered the delicate and charming restaurant hidden within. I will definitely be back! I took the tube everywhere I went, remembering my Grandma’s tips on not getting my purse pinched… Team Taylor and …
