My London To-Do List

I have been living in London now for around two weeks and I have to say that I am absolutely LOVING my new job, I'm finally getting used to the commute and the London way of life, and I'm really excited for everything the future holds at the moment.

I've been working on a list of things I'd like to do now I live down here, when I have a spare day or two. I thought I would share it with you in case any of you are planning on visiting London, and I was also hoping that you could all comment below with more fun things I can do!

1. London Eye
2. London Aquarium
3. London Zoo
4. Wander around Camden Town (especially the food markets!)
5. Up! at the 02
6. London Dungeons
7. Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park
8. Haagen Daaz Chocolate Fondue
9. Choccy Woccy Doo Dah
10. Buckingham Palace

Please comment below if you have any other ideas!

No 7 Beautifully Matte Foundation

When I was in Boots the other day, I noticed that No 7 had a really good offer on. If you buy two products - make up or skincare (excluding gift sets) - you received an anniversary gift box for free containing a mini mascara, highlighter, eyeshadow and a voucher for a free full sized No 7 lipstick of your choice (worth £9.95). I couldn't resist and so decided to try one of their foundations.

The Beautifully Matte foundation claims that it is:

'specially created with our patented, fine, oil absorbing powder, this lightweight formulation glides on effortlessly to ensure shine breakthrough is controlled and your colour remains true all day'.

'The unique mattifying formula ensures pores appear less visible, whilst Salicylic acid helps fight against bacteria which cause spots'.

I have to say that I have fallen head over heels in love with this foundation. The bottle packaging is very similar to my favourite foundation of all time, the Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow, and I love how the bottom of the bottle moves up to ensure you get the most out of each bottle.

The coverage is thick which I definitely need as I have a lot of imperfections, and it really does last all day. For someone with oily skin, I haven't even been having to wear powder with this absolute miracle of a product! I've recently tried a new concealer which has given me the worst breakouts ever, but since using this foundation I've noticed that the quality of my skin has drastically improved, just like it claims it will on the box.

No 7 offer a match made service on their foundations, so they take close up photographs of your skin to find your perfect shade. I'm Calico which is their lightest one, and I have to say the Advisor matched me up perfectly.

This retails at £13.50 which I think is so reasonable for how happy I have been with this foundation. Especially with the current offer to get the free anniversary gift box. I also got one of the No 7 £5 off vouchers, and of course my free full sized lipstick, so overall I'm really really happy and wish I hadn't overlooked No 7 all these years!
