Happy Friday! Hope everyone is looking forward to a fabulous weekend. I got some amazing news today, after a ball ache of an application and a lot of tense waiting I have been accepted on to an MA in English Literature. I am so excited. I can't wait to get back to uni. The next year is going to be a lot of hard work but it's going to be so fun and so worth it! Anyway now that that's out of the way let's get to the very serious business of Friday I'm in Love shall we?

This week my skin has been going through a rebellious phase, and by that I mean it's been nothing short of disgusting. I'm talking about one of the worst breakouts my face has experienced in a long time. And despite the near constant cleansing and exfoliating my skin only seems to be getting worse and worse. It's definitely a stress thing. Anyway this gives excellent coverage and really brightens up the sad, grey baggy area under my eyes.

I finally plucked up the courage to use this and despite the initial fear that I was going to ruin something so beautiful, I was so impressed. Whilst usually I'm not a fan of shimmer blushes this is beautiful. The colour is lovely, pearly and leaves my (admittedly chubby) cheeks with a pretty rosy glow.

I bought this today and it is gorgeous. A new release from Barry M as part of their Autumn drop the colours just scream autumn. Chili is my favourite and is a lovely orange toned red that is literally the colour of autumn leaves. I also picked up the colour Chai which is a smokey grey, the colours are beautiful and I will be adding more to my collection soon. Not that it needs it.

Blackheads are the bane of my existence and sadly my skin is prone to the buggers. I bought this earlier in the week in a moment of desperation -I cannot stress how awful my skin is looking at the moment!- and it is marvellous. Whilst I wasn't expecting dramatic improvement it did definitely reduce the appearance of pores and made my skin feel really clean and fresh.

Another skin care product -it's bad guys!- that I've been trying out this week. I bought this because honestly it looked like it might be fun to use. The exfoliating nib is really soft but left my skin feeling fabulous and deep cleaned. I have used this everyday for the past week and whilst it doesn't do much for existing spots I think it's definitely prevented more break outs. 

My SOTW this week is Not the Only One by Sam Smith



For me Sam Smith has been something of a slow burn. When he first came onto the scene I thought he was a bit... meh. I could appreciate he was talented but not my cup of tea. And then stay with me happened, and it blew my mind with it's awesomeness. Then he did it again with not the only one. The song is heartbreakingly beautiful. I've had it on repeat for the last 3 days and I haven't tired of it yet. Not only is the song wonderful the music video is equally so. Starring Dianna Agron and Chris Messina, two of my favourite people, it tells the story of a housewife in the 50's stuck in a marriage with a man she adores who is routinely cheating on her. It's wonderful. I love both it and the song.
