Tom Ford Indian Rose Swatch & First Impressions

This is just a quick post about the beautiful Tom Ford lipstick in Indian Rose and my first impressions of it as this is the first Tom Ford product I've bought (I know, where have I been?!).
Obviously, all of the packaging is beautiful. I mean, it's Tom Ford, so I'm not gonna bang on about that. Indian Rose is a really pretty rosy pink/nude toned lipstick that isn't mega out there, but it certainly isn't boring either. It has a creamy, moisturising texture that applies like a dream. I can't really comment on wear time all that much, as it is first impressions, but with a lipstick of this high quality I'm sure it lasts long enough.
It's safe to say I love this product and can't wait to buy more from Tom Ford. When I bought this the sales assistant used their Shade & Illuminate palette on me too, which I completely fell in love with. That is definitely next on my hit list.

A Californian Summer, Part 4: Santa Barbara

The penultimate post about my time in California last summer.

This post is a little different in terms of location because it will be the only one which is not in LA. I would actually have seven posts for you as I also visited Palm Springs/Desert and Washington DC. Unfortunately, I don't particularly have any decent photos in those locations (sigh).

So, the beach pictured here is Butterfly Beach. It was just as pretty as the name suggests. Apparently it's a celebrity hot spot, but I didn't see anyone of note when I was there.

The architecture in the center of Santa Barbara was all traditional with that classic terracotta red, plus a lot of fun street markets. A refreshingly different setting to the cityscape that is Los Angeles.
