Peter Doherty at Brixton Jamm




On Monday last week we went to see Peter Doherty play at the Brixton Jamm. It was one of 4 shows (he played 2 on Sunday and 2 more on Monday). We attended the 1st Monday set, which started about 8pm.

He played one of my favourite songs of his, Lost Art of Murder, as well as a couple of other Babyshambles and Libertines songs, including Delivery and What Katie Did. And of course, he played songs from his solo album too.

This time he looked quite well (read healthy) compared to previous times we've seen him live. Here's hoping he stays clean.

And in other news we're gonna see The Strokes in London this summer! If any of you are going let me know :)

Revlon ColorStay Eyeshadow Quad in Precocious

A couple of months back, when I met my cousin in London we did a bit of shopping. In TK Maxx I got an eyeshadow quad from the Revlon ColorStay line in Precocious.

It features a sparkly silver, a medium dark grey, a dusty pink and a purple shade. The moment I saw it I knew I had to get it (even though I don't wear eyeshadow that much) as the colours just looked so beautiful together and also I wanted to try some purple on my lids to see if it made my brown eyes stand out a bit more. 

It promises 16 hours of wear with silky shades that are blendable and don't fade, smudge or crease. Indeed do they not crease even on my oily eyelids, and that's without a primer. I really like this palette as it is long lasting, easy to blend, has beautiful shades and it's quite affordable.

These pictures are from our trip to Mexico. This was at Parque Fundidora, where I found the remains of the Luminasia exhibition as they were being removed and got some sneaky pictures with it. The next outfit post, if I'm not mistaken, will feature my new haircut that I got last week.

Last week I was kindly sent the Haloway Insulated Hydroloft™ Jacket to try and review. Even though it's almost spring, it's still quite cold (we've had some hailstone action in the past couple of days) so it's no surprise that this jacket is coming very handy. 

One of the first things I noticed when I tried the Haloway Jacket on is how lightweight it is, which makes it very comfortable, easy to wear and layer over clothes. It has a nice, feminine shape that goes in at the waist and a very subtle dog tooth print finish on the fabric. 

As mentioned before, the jacket features synthetic Hydroloft™ insulation, which is highly breathable and does not absorb water, while the use of body mapping and water & wind resistant fabric ensures you get warm where you need it the most. The Haloway Jacket also provides added protection with an adjustable & detachable hood, fitted cuffs and two zipped felted pockets.

After a couple of days wearing this jacket I can definitely say that it is wind resistant (I haven't fully tested it in the rain so can't comment on water resistance) it's very comfortable and warm. The only issue I had was with the zip, which proved troublesome when trying to do it up but with a bit of practice I got there in the end. Overall, I would recommend this jacket if you are looking for a durable, good quality outerwear piece that will protect you from the weather and last you many years.

Avon Naturals Chocolate Body Scrub

Avon Naturals Body Care Indulging Chocolate Body Scrub review

Normally, I try to keep my skincare routine as simple as possible but like to venture into the unknown from time to time. On this occasion I decided to give Avon Naturals Body Care Indulging Chocolate Body Scrub a try.

This body scrub invites you to luxuriate in the fragrance of luscious chocolate and claims to leave skin feeling cleansed and conditioned. To use just massage on the skin and rinse thoroughly.

The truth is I ordered this scrub because it was chocolate scented, though I didn't expect it to smell this nice, just like chocolate butter cream icing, so delicious! It also has a mousse-like consistency with very small scrubbing particles that are almost invisible.

Avon Naturals Chocolate Body Scrub is easy to use and not at all messy. I just apply it, massage and rinse and it leaves my skin feeling very smooth and soft.

I would recommend this product if you are looking for a gentle, affordable and delicious smelling body scrub.
