Face of the day + ramble

In case you forget how I look, here's a once in a blue moon FOTD.

I recently cut in some short layers to add a bit of volume around the crown area. Looks good no? I quite like it, it's so refreshing. I am not a trained hairdresser hence it usually takes me a week to get the layer perfect so it looks more obvious. It's still day 2, so it looks quite feathery and wispy.
A thinning scissor is what I used mainly to take off the weight of the hair in the middle so it feels more appropriate for the Summer. Every girl needs this tool in her vanity! Don't be scared to use it, it will not chop off hair but will rather thin it so it moves beautifully when the wind blows.

My hair ramble aside, this is what I wore today. I absolutely love how the Jemma Kidd Rosy Glow brings a natural flush to the cheeks in the summer and has an undetectable texture. Must have!

Hope everyone's enjoying the gorgeous weather and are set for the long Jubilee weekend. I am not a person to squeeze in between crowds so instead of witnessing the pageant live on Thames, I'm off to Leicester to see family and will be happy seeing snippets of the extravaganza when aired.

P.s. I finally redeemed a Selfridges gift card I received on my birthday and purchased Lancome Teint Idole and Chanel Perfection Lumiere. *does a little happy dance*

It is indeed beyond crazy! I was off to Oxford Circus today and there was hardly any place to walk and the place covered in British flags. Pretty yet slightly intimidating for me. Don't like a crowds :(
