Forever 21 Denim Jacket (not online but available in-store)

Topshop Joni jeans

JustFab UK Noel flats

I’ve been really loving my recent Forver 21 purchases. If you didn’t see my haul with them (and much more) you can click here and go and watch it!  If you haven’t yet subscribed to my YouTube channel, please do, I really appreciate it, and I have lots of videos coming soon, including a Makeup Tutorial sometime next week!

This floral cami top is perfect for Spring and Summer, it’s really floaty and comfortable. It’s also really flattering. I paired it with my favourite high waisted Joni jeans from Topshop, and my JustFab UK Noel flats again. These flats are so pretty, and are perfect for any occasion. Sadly it’s still a little bit cold to wear them most days where I live, but hopefully soon I’ll be able to wear them more!

I’m also wearing my new Forever 21 Denim jacket. I really love this, as it’s much more fitted than my Vintage Levi’s jacket, and it’s also a darker wash. I think it’s really flattering, and it’s good for adding shape to outfits. Denim jackets are so easy to throw on with anything, and I wear mine loads!

Hope you enjoyed seeing this outfit, and hopefully Spring will be here properly soon!! x

Florals for Spring

Topshop Joni jeans 

Forever 21 Floral crop top

Forever 21 cardigan  (cream version not online)

JustFab UK Noel flats 

This outfit is different to my usual ones!! I hardly ever wear crop tops, but I found this one in Forever 21 and really loved it!  It fits perfectly and is really flattering. I love the high neck of it and the print is beautiful. Of course I’m not confident enough to wear it alone, so I added this lovely cream cardigan, also from Forever 21, over it. I’ve been looking for a cardigan like this for ages, and this one was such a bargain, I’m so pleased I found it!

I’m also wearing my standard Joni jeans from Topshop. I thought they went well with the crop top, and being high waisted, they work better with shorter tops than some of my other jeans do! To finish it off, I’ve added my new Noel flats from JustFab UK. These are perfect for the Spring and Summer, and are so pretty! I really love how they bring back the colour of my cardigan and they’re really comfortable. (Not ones for the rain though as they are nude faux suede!)

I hope you like this outfit, as I said it’s a bit different for me!! xx

New Skincare bits: The Body Shop

skincare

So you might have seen these already if you’ve been watching my YouTube videos, but I thought I’d do a post on them and go into a bit more detail! You probably all know I’m a bit of a skincare fan, and I love doing my skincare routine-especially in the evening!

I’ve recently been hearing lots of good reviews about The Body Shop skincare, so I took advantage of a 40% offer they had online, and picked up a few bits to try.

Firstly, I got the Vitamin E EyeCream. I needed a new eye cream anyway, and this one comes in a tube, which is nicer than using eye cream from a pot. It contains vitamin E  and is supposed to hydrate the skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines, reduce puffiness and leave the skin feeling soft and smooth. I’ve been using this for about a week now and I really like it. My eyes usually get really dry around the outer corners, and this has fixed that for starters! I’ve also found it makes my foundation/concealer go on much smoother, and helps to avoid any creasing. I apply this both morning and night, and I’m really impressed with it!

From the same Vitamin E range, I picked up the Vitamin E Moisture Serum. I saw Amelia-Liana using this in one of her skincare routine videos, and she said it was amazing at making her skin flawless and smooth. I’m so glad I’ve tried this as it makes a huge difference to my dry, sensitive skin. I’ve also had quite a bit of acne (hormonal) at the moment, and this has really helped at calming down the redness and soreness too.

I also picked up the Aloe soothing day cream, and the matching eye cream. The Aloe range is fragrance and alcohol free and is clinically proven to help sensitive skin and help soothe irritation. Sounds perfect to me! I have really sensitive skin, and I’ve found these moisturisers really help with my redness, soreness and dry patches. I apply quite a lot of the night cream, and a small amount of the day cream. I find that by doing this, my skin stays really hydrated without being too hydrated during the day (I find my foundation sits better if I just apply a small amount in the morning). I find both creams to be really soothing on the skin without being greasy. They’re also quite similar (in terms of how they work on my skin) to my beloved REN Evercalm Global Protection day cream (and are also significantly cheaper!)

Last but not least, I got the Vitamin C Daily Moisturiser SPF 30. I’ve heard good reviews about this one too. It’s for dull skin, so I got it really for days when my skin is looking dull. I haven’t made my mind up about this one yet, but I do love the Orange smell! I love anything orange scented!

So that’s everything I picked up from The Body Shop! I’m really impressed with their products so far, which is surprising, as it’s usually a brand I overlook when it comes to skincare!

Hope you all have a lovely day! x

Haircare haul!

haircare

Following my recent hair cut, I decided to make more of an effort with my hair, so I’ve picked up a few new products!

The first thing is the Detangling comb from The Body Shop. I posted last week about the Bamboo pin hairbrush, which I’m really loving, so I decided to also try out the detangling comb! I don’t normally use many combs, but The Body Shop was having a 40% off everything sale online (still on) so I thought it was a good time to pick it up! I have used it, and found it so much easier than a plastic one! I’m really impressed with it!

Also from The Body Shop, I picked up the Banana Shampoo and Conditioner. You may or may not already know that I’m obsessed with Banoffee flavour anything, so I love a good banana scent! I used these on my hair last night, and they do smell amazing! I didn’t find them very nourishing on the hair, but they did leave my hair feeling soft. I’m still undecided whether I like these or  not yet, as they didn’t help with the ‘wildness’ of my hair, but as I said, they smell amazing!

I picked up some more bobby pins, as mine seem to disappear all the time! (just me?) I decided to treat myself to some better quality ones (I usually buy Primark ones that never last), so hopefully these will be easier to use and actually stay in my hair!! These are the Goody colour collection ones, and are supposed to be anti-slip!

Boots were also having a 3 for 2 on haircare, so I of course took advantage! I picked up the Charles Worthington Volume and Bounce Texturising spray, which Amelia-Liana raves about as an Oribe dry texturising spray. I’ve never tried the Oribe as it’s so expensive, but boy does this stuff give you volume!! You can definitely feel it in the hair, which I don’t particularly like, but it holds all day and gives amazing texture and volume. Very impressed.

I also picked up another Charles Worthington product, this time the Moisture Seal Mineral Hair Mask. Again I used this last night. I found a little bit went a long way, and it left my hair feeling nourished and soft. I’ll have to use it a few more times before I make my mind up fully, but I’m very impressed so far. Also, the packaging (flip-top) is genius- no more water getting in hair masks!! It’s a bit more expensive than I usually pay, but seeing as I’m making more effort with my hair, and it was 3 for 2 I treated myself!

Because it was 3 for 2, I decided to pick up a new heat protectant, because you can never have enough of that! I chose the Toni and Guy Prep heat protection mist. I don’t use a lot of heat on my hair, simply because, there’s so much of it, everything takes too long. I’ve recently bought some heated rollers (more info coming soon) and I got this to use with them. I’ve tried it today and it didn’t leave my hair feeling crispy or sticky, which is great!

Overall, I’m happy with my little haircare haul! I don’t know how long my ‘hair effort’ will last, but hopefully I will be able  to keep it up!!

Hope you’ve all had a brilliant weekend! xx
