Olivia Burton Midi Chrono Detail Silver Mesh Watch

As a child I was always an avid watch wearer, you wouldn't catch me without my silver Mickey Mouse timepiece with his arms counting down the seconds. But as I grew up I kind of fell out of love with watches, I did jump on the bandwagon with the Michael Kors watch craze, but I found most of the styles were too big and clunky for me, and eventually got fed up of wearing mine!

I did purchase an Olivia Burton Rose Gold Watch a couple of years ago, whilst I found the strap and general design of the watch much more streamlined than my Michael Kors piece, eventually I found the watch face was a little too big for my wrist!

I stumbled across this beauty in the window of Goldsmiths and thought it was perfect. Just the right size for my wrist and keeping with my favourite colour of jewellery, silver.

My Favourite Long Wearing Lip Products

Long wearing lip products are my fav, having to re-apply lipstick every time I've had a drink or something to eat can get annoying really fast, which is why I always opt for something that has a bit of staying power.

Browsing through my drawers the other day I realised I'd accumulated quite a large number of these types of lip products, so here are my 5 favourites that I find myself reaching for time after time.

First up is the MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer in 'Funk', I absolutely love this product as firstly it's so affordable (only £3!) This lip product comes with a doe foot applicator and is actually surprisingly easy to apply, it lasts for ages and is a fantastic budget product.

Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer Dupe

I first stumbled upon the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer at work. We had just launched the new beauty section of the site and I had heard loads of rave reviews about this primer. Apparently it is great at keeping oil at bay. So I took the plunge and bought the 10ml size - at £20 it was quite pricey but boy was it worth it.

Mad Hatters Afternoon Tea at The Sanderson Hotel

Afternoon tea is one of my favourite things to do. I've slowly tried to make my way through all of the popular offerings in London. If you fancy you can check out my posts on the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory tea and the Pret-a-Portea at the Berkeley! Next on my list was the Mad Hatters Afternoon Tea at the Sanderson, based a short walk away from Tottenham Court Road
