Monthly Favourites | Summer Edition

If you're a regular Crave More Beauty reader then you will be well aware that I don't do a favourites post on a monthly basis.

I like to save it for when I've got something special up my sleeve, and to explode them all on a monthly favourites - full of exciting products! 

I have recently noticed my blusher collection growing rapidly and Kiko Tri-bal Soul Baked Blush is the latest addition (Lisa Eldridge used it in a tutorial, so it must be good).

An Afternoon At Burwash Manor

They do say all good things come in three... so here we go, third lifestyle post in a row - and it just so happens to be my favourite of them all.

Last week my mother, sister and I (along with the beautiful little Rose that is my niece) made a mini mid-week adventure to the outskirts of Cambridge, to Burwash Manor, where we were greeted by tranquility, sunshine and the sound of birds singing.

Wasabi Comes To Cambridge

Over the last few weeks I have managed to build up all possible sushi cravings, safely tucked away in the back of my mind, until Wednesday evening when I let all wants and needs for teriyaki run wild at the pre-opening event for the Japanese pit-stop, Wasabi - a highly anticipated and exciting launch for Cambridge. 

Wasabi has only ever meant one thing to me, a quick Katsu curry on the train home from Kings Cross; it may be the most comforting dish to eat after a long day of walking and pollution, but it also strongly scents the whole carriage making me the victim of a few eye-rolls and looks of annoyance... one mouthful and I know it's worth it.

Espresso Library, Cambridge

Yesterday morning is what us Brits call a typical Summers day in England: humid, rainy and gloomy.

These days call for one thing - friends, coffee and brunch. So, I peeled myself away from the warmth of my duvet and headed into Cambridge where I found all three things at the cafe hotspot, Espresso Library.

Bronzing Becca

It's the same story every Summer - fresh dewy bronzed skin, bold brows, simple eyes and a bright lip.

Okay, so I admit sometimes I skip the bright lip for a soft pink (I still can't get that Burberry shade off of my lips), but the bronzed skin is always in play with a little help from my latest Space NK spree.

Six Weeks Passed, Six Weeks To Go

This morning I woke to an email alarming me of the fact that I now only have six weeks to go until my first charitable run, Race For Life.

Last time I checked I had two months - where did those two weeks go? I can't decide if it's the 10K run or the quick loss of time that's frightening me more.

It's been a while since my last fitness post where I was only just beginning, since then I've been feeling stronger and gaining more with my body every time I step out of the house (top knot, trainers and SPF being the essentials).

One whiff of this and I was transported from the elaborate halls of Liberty, beautifully draped with meters upon meters of the finest printed scarves, to a sparkling Italian orchard filled with fruit, flowers and happiness.

Neither of which I would protest to.

After a day filled with food and art, I indulged once more and left the city with a new fragrance, a big smile and lighter pockets.
