If there is one destination in London I'm always drawn too, it's Regent Street. You can't go wrong with the range of shops - you've got high street options like H&M as well as the likes of Burberry (we can all dream), tech shops as well as restaurants.

I've been a lot more experimental with make-up these days and often find myself switching between products more frequently, which is actually quite refreshing. I find it can get a bit boring otherwise, however, saying that I do stick to certain products daily which you can read about here. But for now, I thought I'd fill you in on what I'm trying, what I love and what I'm not so sure about...
Fashion week has recently passed us, giving us an insight for all the beauty trends for SS/13 - which Is extremely exciting, I'm not sure if you remember but I actually joined the Body Shop for a couple of shows to get a sneak peek and today I'm bringing to you some other key looks that were featured during LFW by The Body Shop.

I find that there is always one aspect of beautifying ourselves that we lack in, and that's taking care of the skin on our bodies. Even with the most simple things, like with shower gels and the content of their ingredients. For example, SLS - An ingredient that strips the natural oils and moisture from our skin. More on this later though, I think this subject deserves a whole post to itself. Today we're talking my mission for hydrated skin.

By Terry Touch Veloutee, Benefit Erase Paste, *Bobbi Brown Face Touch Up Stick,
Tom Ford Brow Sculptor, Anastasia Clear Brow Gel
I like to switch up my make-up from time to time and dabble with different blushers, bronzers or try the latest mascara that's worked its way into my collection. However, there are still those products that I use in my daily routine that I absolutely love and never seem to stray from. I'm talking the ones I have and would re-purchase over, and over again.

*Kiehls Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream
You may be familiar with BB creams by now as they hit the beauty shelves last year, promising high coverage, properties of a primer as well as skincare benefits all in one. I personally always felt they were slightly gimmicky claiming a lot - especially when they seemed to come around so quickly, leading me to think that not much thought had gone into them. However, if there is one brand to put thought and extensive research into a product, It's Kiehls.

*Origins VitaZing Moisturiser, *Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes in Fuller Fudge, Anastasia Clear Brow Gel, Tom Ford Brow Sculptor in Taupe
This time around my monthly make-up picks include a whole bunch of newbies, I've been fairly experimental with a lot of products recently, but heres the low-down of my current favourites.
Lets start with the only base product, Origins VitaZing moisturiser, I've been talking about this none stop recently but that's because its pretty damn special. When I'm having a good skin day and don't fancy doing much with my make-up, I put this on to achieve a my skin but better, with an extra glow, adding colour and a very sheer coverage. It's an essential for all you lazy girls out there that are blessed with good skin!

*Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Pretty Powerful
Hands up anyone that loves a multi-task product that's easy to use and perks up your complexion in a flash? (I know I do) You might be familiar with Bobbi Brown's Pot Rouges then? A versatile, creamy product that can be applied to your cheeks and lips adding a pretty flush within minutes. Sounds like the perfect addition your handbag huh? If the answer is yes, then you're in for a treat...

*Origins Vita Zing Moisturiser, Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers, Anastasia Clear Brow Gel,
*Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector
When I'm being forced out the door or some unexpected visitors arrive and I'm having one of those days where I really don't want to wear any make-up - I want some quick fixes that are going to emphasise what I have and give everything a little boost. I've found the best out of my stash to do so.
The first step is to even out the tone of my skin and make it look that little bit healthier, the perfect product for this? Origins Vitazing. A moisturiser that releases a sheer pigment as you blend adding slight colour, a very sheer coverage and glow. I didn't think I'd love this product as much as I do, but it's perfect and one that I turn too all the time if I'm just popping out and need a little something-something.

*Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tints for Eyes in Lots 'o Latte, Fuller Fudge and Ample Amber
You probably know that just recently I've been dabbling with eyeshadows and moving myself away from the liquid liner, it's hard, but it's happening people. My first taste was with the Burberry palette which you can read about here and now I've been having a play with one of the latest, and very exciting offerings from Clinique. First chubby sticks for lips, and now for eyes - genius I say!

*Nars Laguna Bronzer, *YSL Cream Blush in 01, *Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector in 02
When Spring comes our way it's not just time to spring clean your home, oh no, I think it's equally important to spruce up your make-up bag a little too. Generally Spring means warmer weather (if we're lucky) which instantly makes me think of lighter bases and fuss free make-up that results in an effortless, pretty look.
