St Andrews

How ugly are my best friends? Horrible bunch to look at...

Nothing like sand dune jumping without a few tumbles.

Such jokers..

Tay Bridge looking onto Dundee.

Let's not forget our fabulous, but hairy, welcome party when we arrived home.

Overall, a rather splendid summer outing. 

Obsession 101

Serious talent vocally, facially and even hair wise - her witty vine videos are a good laugh also. 
Most definitely a new girl crush of mine.

This is what's on my face today.
Keeping it minimal and simple - sheer laziness always gets the better of me.

French Voguettes

Fuelling my addiction for French chic and everything that it embodies.
This could be bad...

If you haven't heard from me in a week I've ran away.
Guess where?

F.Scott Fitzgerald Party

 I don't want to touch let alone read these - far too pretty. 
Penguin, y'ave done it again.
Get you're party started, here.

The glory is in your hands

How did I ever survive without these? 
Great as a small gift or a treat to yourself for being so damn marvellous.

Adolfo Dominguez - Azahar

This is what I'm smelling of today; essences of orange blossom with neroli, petit grain, fresh citrus and wood notes.

Not too bad I think... could be worse.
Azahar is an oldie but definitely a goodie in my books.

Summer dinner

One thing that I always adore about Summer (except the sunshine) is dinner at my Aunt's house - her homemade pizzas are the best.
I'm most definitely a foodie, but unfortunately not the most articulate when it comes to describing the flavours, textures etc, so just take it from me - it was all delicious.

Safe to say by the end of the meal, I was absolutely stuffed!

Tiger Balm

 This miracle in a dandy, little pot is saving my ankles.
Seeing as summer, and the good weather it brings *cough* not in Scotland, has sneakily crept up on me this year, my pasty Winter limbs need to come out from hiding. 
Figured some exercise wouldn't do me any harm in the process. 

According to the website 'Red Tiger Balm is the original recipe, create for relieve strong pain. This balm is very efficient for sportsmen who want to warm up or calm muscles before or after exercise. Red Balm gives hot sensation. You can use it for : rheumatism, muscular pain, tired feet' 

Wouldn't really count myself as a 'sportsmen' per se, but if you must... 
The balm has been great for doing exactly as it says - relieving my weak, pathetic ankles and sore muscles from pain.

The hot sensation and tribal packaging makes it all that bit more exciting. 

You can buy the balm, here

Mug shot

I'll be sure to enjoy my morning earl grey in this little darling.   
You can also, here.

Products of the moment

These are some products I have recently rediscovered after clearing out my room at University, and thought it'd be wise to use them up. I am slowly but surely accumulating a mass amount of body and skincare products so think a clearing out of those will do me some good also. 

The unintentional colour co-ordination is just immaculate. Bravo, Ottavia.
