Huda #FauxFilter Foundation Review

I have championed Kat Von D Lock It Foundation for 2 years now and you can find out why here. However, as a makeup enthusiast, it's kind of unheard of to stick with something for that long without trialling something new. In my attempt to find another foundation I like, I colour matched myself for the Huda Faux Filter Foundation on a trip to Selfridges. I tend not to buy foundations without trialling them for a couple of wears but as this is a product that is popular, I took the risk and ordered it online via Cultbeauty. I've written and re-written this three times because I couldn't decide if I liked it or not - keep reading to find out my final verdict.

Winter Lights Festival 2018

Last weekend, Juan took me to London and following seeing Sarah of Sarah Kirby Blog post about it on Instagram, we decided to check out the Winter Lights festival, a collection of art installations spotted all over Canary Wharf with, as the name suggests, a focus on light. With 33 separate sculptures and interactive art pieces to find, it's like a neon treasure hunt and we had some serious exploring to do. Keep reading to check out my photos of this visual spectacular!

Favourite Books of 2017

I'm a little late but it's still January (just) so I'm OK! Last year's reading challenge was a very achievable 20 books and I'm pleased to say that I read 20 and started on a 21st which I've since finished this year. Of those books, only 1 or 2 have been really bad so it's been a good book year. As always, these weren't all released in 2017 but just novels I've read this year. Let's get stuck in, shall we?

Favourite Movies of 2017

I started out 2017 with the aim of watching 50 films and definitely achieved that with 60 new-to-me movies viewed throughout the year. However, I only made it to the cinema a handful of times and not many of the films I watched were actually released in 2017 (nor were that great) and I haven't managed to see all the movies released in 2017 that took my fancy. However of those I did watch, I have compiled my top 5 list (technically 6, as we have 2 at joint 5th place!):

Favourite Albums of 2017

In 2017, I embraced New Music Friday and listened regularly to new albums and...have been kind of underwhelmed. In short, as usual, when it came to formulate this list, it was a bit of a struggle but I got there eventually, after changing the lineup four times.So let's get straight to it:
