OOTD? Yes it's my First Outfit Post!

Well this is a first, isn't it?
But I am SO super excited about the hand painted shirt I am about to show you that I simply had to do an outfit post!
I had randomly discovered Wonder Park as I was looking around the Camden Market a while ago and the idea that they paint on whatever you want on whatever T-shirt was instantly appealing!

Fast forward to my friend whose brain is on constant creative overdrive and who comes up with or revives the most fantastic words. One fine evening we ended up with the word "frohlocken", which basically just means "rejoice" in German. But it sounds utterly magnificent when said in German!  
It's a very archaic word and I am sure 99% or the population has even forgotten it existed.
Well, this word sounded so great and fun and puts me instantly in a good mood, that I just had to put it on a shirt and have it with me. Especially on Mondays.

This is where we combined this crazy word, with the great customising skills of Wonder Park and...voilĂ :

Wake up in the morning feeling like P.Diddy

You know that feeling of opening your eyes in the morning and realising you can still sleep? Indefinitely! That's the beauty of a Saturday right there! 
And it gets even better when you give your skin something to be happy about! So, much like my Friday Night Pamper, this is the Saturday morning edition, where it's all about making the skin feel nice and clean, and ready for the day!

Since my skin is on the dry side, it's hard to find a clay mask that doesn't leave my face feeling like it's about to tear at the sides. The Good Things Manuka Honey face mask though is doing quite a great job at cleaning without drying. 
I know the Pixi Glow Tonic  and the L'Occitane Immortelle Essential Face Water are both toners, but where the Pixi one lightly exfoliates, the L'Occitane essential water restores hydration and plumpness so they complete eachother very well.
I'm still in the trying out phase with the Hydraluron Moisture Jelly and was wondering if you had any experiences with it so far? I have not tried the actual serum yet so if you have and want to share how that worked for you, please do.
I'm definitely someone who prefers oily and thick moisturisers more, like Shea Butter based ones. But this jelly type of thing is definitely much better suited as a make-up base, since it doesn't have anything greasy about it and keeps all of my eye make-up in place nicely.
As soon as I try it out more, I will let you know my full opinion on it. So far, it's nice and cooling, seen as how it's boiling outside!

The Easy Peasy Summer Face

You know how people say it always rains in London? They clearly have not been here too lately. I've been successfully dying of heat every single night for probably a week now. Not to mention the humidity.
The plus side of humidity means that I always feel like my skin is hydrated. The downside is that you have to be careful what you put on your face, because it might just melt away. 
This is why I truly keep it to a minimum lately, with nothing more than a moisturiser as a base. With this heat, I cannot deal with any other layer.

But you still gotta look and feel pretty, right? So here's what goes on my face as of late:

First rule is: keep it powdery. 
Especially in humidity, you're better off with powder rather than creamy products. So while I love my creamy illuminator, I've gone with the Soap and Glory Solar Powder instead.
And where I used to be the eternal liner gal, the current substitute is the Wet n' Wild Comfort Zone palette. I can either just use one of the dark colours for liner or create a nice tan summery eye.
A immensely surprising mascara favourite is the Origins GinZing mascara. Yes, they make mascara. I for one did not expect that. And least of all did I expect it to be so great! Your lashes feel and light, beautiful and defined. Exactly my kind of mascara!
And now, my favourite new discovery:  The KIKO Lip Gloss Pencil in 07 Baby Pink. I'm very likely to pick a pencil in favour of a lipstick nowadays. I'll make a separate post on these pencils because I just love them and for 3,90£ they have an almost surreal price-quality ratio!
