YSL Forever Light Creator Serum

YSL Forever Light Creator Sample
When snooping round the counters I saw that the lady at the YSL counter was giving people free samples, so I asked for one too! It is the Yves Saint Laurent Forever Light Creator Serum. Basically it is a skintone corrector serum. It helps correct the appearance of uneven skintone. Afterwards skin is left more luminous and radiant. Colour imperfections look visibly reduced and skintone recovers its clarity and evenness.
That's what I found out it has been designed to do.
The lady told me that one sample has enough liquid inside to last for three days.
So three days have past and what do I think?
I think that if I was to buy the whole bottle I would see more of a difference in my skin but I can't afford to spend £77 for 30ml. I used to get redness around my nose that I would have to cover up with concealer but, so far, since using this serum I haven't had to cover up the blemishes around my nose because there aren't any!
Are you lucky enough to buy a full bottle? What benefits did you get?

ELLE UK August 2013

Subscribers Cover, August 2013, The New Season Starring Pixie
The August issue is all about the 'pre-fall'. That basically is next season clothes that are available to buy now. Next season there are 7 main trends: The Romantic, The Rebel, The Boy-Girl, The Saint, The Lady, The Careerist and The Maximalist.
Where has the Style for Less feature gone? Instead there's a Day To Night feature:
I love how she just drapes the coat off of her shoulders to give a laid-back yet feminine touch to it.
Simply by tucking in the top gives the skirt a new silhouette!

The polo neck can be drastically changed just by the length of a skirt.
To keep your skin in tip-top condition you need to follow these directions:
Morning: Apply cleanser, apply day cream, add a non-pore blocking SPF, take skin supplements.
Evening: Wash off make-up with cleanser, pat skin dry with towel, apply serum to face, apply night cream.
Once/Twice Weekly: Use exfoliator, apply a face mask.

Rodial Glamtox Kit

Rodial Skin Care On The Go Glamtox Kit
I recently renewed my subscription to ELLE magazine and with it came this gift! It is the Rodial Glamtox Kit worth £35.
From Left to Right: Glamtox Cleansing Balm, Glamtox Day, Glamtox Night, Glam Balm Lip and Glamoxy Snake Serum
Inside there are 5 little bottles that are perfect for travelling.
Glamtox Cleansing Balm
The Glamtox Cleansing Balm is packed with skin brightening amino acids to melt away make-up and gently cleanse the skin.
Glamtox Day and Glamtox Night
The Glamtox Day is a moisturiser that smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Glamtox Night is 'an advanced retinal formula that transforms your skin overnight'.
Glam Balm Lip and Glamoxy Snake Serum
The Glam Balm Lip is probably the only product that I'll be using at the moment as I don't have wrinkles yet! It is intensive and hydrating. The Glamoxy Snake Serum intrigues me, it reduces the appearance of frown lines and wrinkles.

I think I will give these a go because I've heard good things about Rodial. This kit is worth £35 so surely it must be good?
Have you tried Rodial products before?

Godiva Festival 2013

Back: Flower Garland from Baby Ceylon and Vintage Oxblood Clutch Front: Sunglasses

Godiva Festival is a free festival that is based in the War Memorial Park, Coventry. This year there were performances from Mallroy Knox, The Loveable Rogues and Amelia Lily. Of course, I listened to a bit of the music but when there's a 'Vintage Market' tent around you can't miss it!
Sunglasses, £4
I've been looking around for a while for a pair of sunglasses for the summer. I had nearly decided on a pair from Topshop for £16 but when you see an almost identical pair for £4 you can't refuse!
Flower Garland, £4
I was going to buy a flower garland at last year's festival but at the last moment said no. I was not going to say no again so ended up with this tied in my hair for the rest of the day. I think that it'll also look nice when put round the rim of my hat.
Vintage Oxblood Clutch, £5, Boots 17 Vintage Nail Polish
I've been needing a clutch for while for when I'm out at parties. I, previous to this, had looked online for a clutch and all the good ones were at least £15! Therefore this clutch had to come home with me too. As it is vintage it had a few marks on it but I think that they can easily be washed off.
I love that it resembles a purse but on a larger scale!
Are you going to any festivals this summer? Have you already been to any festivals this summer?
