Christmas in Devon

Coat: Charity shop | Hat: H&M | Scarf: Urban Outfitters | Boots: c/o Ted and Muffy

Just a little Christmas post, and some iPhone pictures! 
I had a few days in Devon with my family. It was lovely and relaxing before heading back to Bristol for work. 
This is a classic outfit for me... a stripey dress, big wool coat, thick tights and boots. I haven't really changed much all winter! My boots from Ted and Muffy are so comfy, I wouldn't usually go for a red boot as I always play it safe with black but hey I pushed the boat out this time! And they pretty much go with everything in my very neutral wardrobe which mainly consists of black, navy and cream. (oh and what's that bright orange doing in there hey?!)


What's In My Make Up Bag

I'm really an 'au naturel' kinda gal. I like to hydrate my skin and keep it as clear as possible. 
I use a lot of coconut oil, to moisturise and take my make up off with, however it isn't technically in my make up bag as I have a huge pot of it on my desk at home. 
So this is my travel kit.. 
Nivea Soft is an essential when I'm on the go at Uni or work. I get dry skin especially at this time of year so this is must and never leaves my side, along with my Burt's Bees ultra conditioning lip balm. 
I like to prime with a little CC cream from Korres at Bath and Unwind it evens my skin tone really effectively and is the perfect shade. For me it's important that is also SPF 30 as it is great for my fair skin (yes, I even burn in the cloudy English summer!)  
I use L'orieal The Minerals power for my foundation as its super light in consistency which I like as I don't like to feel weighed down by my make up! 
I also add a little red lipstick to transition from day to night, Ardency Inn Modester from Urban Outfitters in a really rich red always finishes my look!

R&R Experience

Ruth originally from South America, has trained in luxury salons in France and now owns her dream salon here in Bristol and a few weeks ago I was invited to R&R Experience to check it out.

It is a compact but well decorated and calming haven just off the bustling streets of Gloucester Road. 
When I visited I was in the midst of all my uni work so it was a welcome escape. 
Ruth and her husband Roland were so welcoming, and made the whole experience very enjoyable and relaxing.  
I received a very quick under arm wax, which unlike many, Ruth was a perfectionist and managed to pluck every hair out! We then moved onto the very relaxing massage, asking me where I had problem areas, and I had a choice of orange or lavender essential oils, I chose orange as lavender usually gives me quite a headache. It was one of the best massages I've ever had and I can't wait to go back and book another. 
And I recommend you do to!
