What have I been loving this Feb? 

IMG_5626 2

Fave 1: Maybeline Baby Lips

During the month of February I rediscovered my baby lips lip balm and I have been absolutely loving it! I find the chap stick form very practical and easy to use and the actual formula of the lip balm is very moisturising and smooth!

Fave 2: Channel Lip Gloss 

I have owned this channel lip gloss for a while now and I love it! I thought it was worth the mention as it is very pigmented, long lasting and the colour is simply gorgeous.

Fave 3: Victoria’s Secret Body Spray in True Escape 

I am simply obsessed with the true escape scent from Victoria’s Secret! it is super fresh and an absolutely perfect smell for the spring and summer time. The great thing about the vic secret sprays and scents is the lasting power! They apply strongly however the scent isn’t overpowering and they last so, so long!

Fave 4: Proactiv Cleanser 

Of course my Proactiv Cleanser is a favourite of mine! I have definitely got good use out of it in the past month in particular! It leaves my skin super soft and clean and really helps prevent breakouts.

Fave 5: Typo 2015 Diary 

As I have just started university I have been getting a lot of use out of my Typo diary!

Fave 6: Iphone 5c

I know this phone isn’t  exactly the newest and coolest phone out right not but I recently just bought it in the month of feb and I love it so much! Apple products in general are the bomb!

Fave 7: Proactiv Night Cream 

Towards the start of february I was experiencing some trouble with my skin! I found this product in my bathroom that I had previously neglected and it has truly done wonders for my skin! It smooths the skin flawlessly and leaves the skin acne free in the morning!

Trend of the Month Alert- Copper Goodness

As a rose gold addict of course I am totally obsessed with the copper trend! The trend does tend to appear most in home wears however the copper trend is definitely starting to make an appearance in fashion and beauty!

My Summer Body Must haves

IMG_5632

During the summer time, I love branching out and trying as many body products as I can! My skin often feels dry especially if I catch a little too much sun and get burnt! I am guessing many of you love hydrating yourself and smelling great in the summer so I thought I would share my top 4 current favourite body products!

Fav 1: Soap and Glory Righteous Body Butter 

IMG_5634  IMG_5636

The Righteous Body Butter from Soap and Glory is great! The scent is awesome for summer as it is quite fresh and fruity. The body butter contains softening Shea butter and aloe vera which makes the formula incredibly hydrating and smooth! (great for dry skin) I have owned this Body Butter for quite sometime now and I use it on a regular basis however due to the large size of the product it lasts so long and isn’t going to run out anytime in the near future! Some Body butter’s on the market smell great in the container however after the application of the product they tend to loose their scent. This is no such issue with this Soap and Glory product! The delightful smell lasts ages after you apply the product to your body! Overall the body Butter from Soap and Glory is a fabulous product and I would 100% recommend it for the summer time!

Fav 2: Crabtree and Evelyn Ultra Moisturising Hand Therapy 

IMG_5638  IMG_5639

As you can see by the very tattered and squished packaging of this hand cream, it has been very loved! This scent of somerset meadows is actually very similar to the scent of the Soap and Glory Body Butter, as both are very fruity, fresh and appropriate for the summer time! The product claims to be ultra moisturising and I definitely think it is. This kind of hand cream product is awesome for any time of the year however the summery scent causes me to use it most in the summer time! Even if my hands don’t feel dry I love using this product as it feels super soft and smells super yum! If you have dry skin, especially hands, this is definitely a great product for you to try out!

Fav 3: Marc Jacobs Honey Body Lotion 

IMG_5651  IMG_5647

First up, let me just point out the obvious! This product has super cute summer appropriate packaging! The Mark Jacobs Honey Body Lotion is great for summer as it is very soft an hydrating as well as having a lovely scent! The smell of this Body lotion is almost identical to the Honey perfume by Marc Jacobs which I also love for the sumer time. The scent is fresh, fruity, somewhat florally however I myself can’t smell the honey scent! Nevertheless I love the scent and it is absolutely perfect for summer. The product is a radiant enhancing body butter that successfully leaves your skin feeling bright and beautiful! Therefore I definitely recommend this product to anyone during the summer time!

Fave 4: The Body Shop Body Butter in Buerre Corporel 

IMG_5646  IMG_5643

I love this product from the body shop as it smells delightful and really does a great job of hydrating and moisturising the skin! The formula of the product is very thick however it is extremely easy to apply on the skin due to its hydrating properties. The product contains Shea Butter which makes the Butter extremely moisturising and lovely for the summer time! The scent of the product is of course very fresh and fruity however unlike the products mentioned above it contains some coconut in its scent which is so deliciously yummy to smell and perfect for the summer time of course! Like the first Body butter I mentioned this product lasts a long time! A little bit truly does go a long way. I really really love this product and would for sure recommend it to anyone looking for an ultra moisturising and highly hydrating product for the summer time!

Top 3 Best Dressed at the Oscars

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

I absolutely love J Lo’s beautiful princess gown! Firstly its the blush pink colour that I am absolutely obsessed with and secondly the details on the dress are so extremely exquisite. I love how the dress comes in, accentuating J Lo’s waist and flows out into a big beautiful gown scraping along the floor. she styles the dress flawlessly with her simple glowing makeup and sleek ponytail.

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Emma stone can do no wrong in my eyes! And of course her oscars dress was absolutely no exception. The lime yellowy/ green covered in beading is so elegant due to its simple silhouette. The long sleeves are so stylish and are my favourite part of the dress! I also love that she matched the colour of her dress to her shoes, ever so flawlessly!

zoe saldana

Well its blush pink, so yeah of course I love Zoe’s Oscar dress! The draping, silky material looks so incredibly flattering on Zoe. The softness of the gown was complimented beautifully by Zoe’s pretty and pink makeup and softly curled undo.

How To Choose The Right Sunnies For Your Face Shape

Sunglasses are an accessory that nearly everyone owns but it is rare to find that pair that you absolutely love off and on your face! Today I will be sharing with you the fool proof way to find the most flattering sunnies for your face shape.

Step 1: Figure out what your face shape is. 

There are many tests and quizzes you can take online to figure out your face shape but it can all be very confusing! If you are serious about figuring out your face shape, it is a good idea to do it with a friend, that way they can help you answer some of the questions about the shape of your face.

Bronze Beauty

 During the summer time, I have been loving the natural bronze glow makeup look! With the right products it is very simple to create!

bronze 1bronze 2bronze 3

The bronze makeup look is great, as it works for so many occasions! You can simplify the look and use lighter coverage products for an everyday summer fresh face. If you use higher coverage bases and more dramatic contours and highlighters, the look becomes very appropriate for any formal event!

bronze 4bronze 5bronze 6

With the bronze look, it may be a good idea to decide what your focus is! Eyes, lips, checks, face! If your bold, of course pick more than one but as a little tip, if you are going bold on the checks, go simple on the eyes and vice versa.

Steps to take to perfect the Bronze Beauty look

1.  Start with your preferred base (foundation, powder, tinted moisturiser etc)

2. If you have used foundation/ tinted moisturiser as the base, try and avoid powdering it, so that the natural glow of your skin can shine through.

3. Decide whether you want to do a full on contour on the checks or just an all over bronze effect.

4. With both Bronzing and contouring, focus the products under the cheekbones, under the jawline and around the edges of your face.

5. choose a highlighter and apply it on the top of your cheekbones, down the brigade of your nose, middle of forehead and cupids bow.

6. Finish the look of with your preferred eye look and a finishing setting spray.
