Flowers in her Hair

IMG_7911

One of my favourite Summer trends that is still going strong since last year is the flower hair garland.
Inspired by the festival trend, they have hit the high street this season in their hundreds with many different styles and colours available. I found this one in River Island and I had to have it. It really dresses up an otherwise casual outfit like the vest top from Topshop and pink shorts from Zara which I am wearing in the pictures.
I finished the look with this necklace which I found at Playa Banca Market in Lanzarote for just €15, definitely the bargain buy of my holiday.
As the days were passing by and my skin was becoming more and more tan I found that my MAC foundation was becoming increasingly too pale for my skin. I am obsessed with their Studio Fix Fluid as it gives perfect coverage for my skin which can be prone to break outs. Unfortunately MAC cannot be purchased anywhere in Lanzarote so I couldn't get my hands on a darker colour and had to try something new.
I went for the Estee Lauder "Double Wear" foundation as I had heard a lot about it.
This particular evening was the first time I had tried it and although the colour was much better for my changing skin tone, I did find the consistency a little thick and hard to blend. It definitely did the trick for the rest of the holiday but I have since gone back to my beloved MAC makeup which seems to work perfectly with my skin type.
