Lancome City Miracle CC Cream Review!

BB, CC......it seems we get a new product per letter these days! but while this may be a CC cream, it scores a pure A for me.

The coverage with this is very light yet somehow it manages to out my very uneven skin tone. The shades available are rather dark so I would suggest going a shade lighter than you usually would, but due to the light texture and coverage it's still workable. I apply this with my hands as you would with a moisturizer, but you could you a brush if you wanted too, but I feel like applying it with your hands does provide you with a more natural application. The scent of this CC cream is absolutely amazing, really light & fresh which makes it a dream to apply every morning, and i'm thinking this will be a gem on holiday as it provides you with a very natural "no makeup makeup look" and also has the added  benefit of  an SPF of 30 which is amazing!

Spring Has Sprung For Foodies

It’s one of my favourite times of the year and it should be yours too. Not only 
have the spring flowers come up to see the sunshine, but the wonderful food 
festivals of the UK have also started springing up for some guilt-free food 
appreciation time. Anything revolving around eating food is a winner in my eyes, 
so what better way to spend a day out than visiting some of the best foodie 
festivals on offer this year. 

Let’s take a look at those wonderful 2014 UK food fests we recommend you pay a visit to… who knows, you might even make a short break out of it just remember to make it a Superbreak.

The Colchester Food and Drink Festival 
28th & 29th June 2014 

Forget about the Sugar Hut, Essex’s Food and Drink Festival in Colchester is 
where it’s at this year. Set within the beautiful Lower Castle Park on the last 
weekend of June, you’ll find an abundance of tasty treats to satisfy even the 
pickiest of food connoisseurs. With free celebrity chef kitchen demonstrations on all day, visitors can easily pick up a few tips and tricks for homemade foodie goodness all year round. 

There’ll be plenty of grub going round with many stalls offering FREE tastings 
before you buy – if only restaurants operated this way? And for those who like to wet their whistle, head to The Pikestaff Inn for local real ale, artisan ciders and local and international wines. With music to enjoy throughout the event as well as free parking (we love a convenient food fest), the Colchester Food and Drink Festival is up there with the best. 

Why not make a weekend of it? You’re just over an hour away from the Capital in Colchester – the perfect excuse for an overnight stay in London with a fancy dinner and theatre show thrown in! 

3rd Annual North Leeds Charity Beer Festival 
30th & 31st
 May 2014 

At no time have the words charity, beer and festival ever sounded so good. 
Brought together for this exciting annual event in Leeds, it’s the perfect 
opportunity to sample locally brewed ales with live music from a variety of 
bands performing throughout the weekend. This year’s event will also celebrate the Tour de France coming to Yorkshire with 17 specially brewed beers to try. 

Taking place at St Aidan’s Community Hall you can come along, get merry with 28 truly Yorkshire ales, enjoy brilliant live music and the best bit…do it all for charity.
