Black Polka Dot Print Frill Tea Dress – Missguided

 

Black Polka Dot Print Frill Tea Dress

This dress from Missguided fits nicely and accentuates my figure as it’s a good quality material that clings to the body. This dress is a great transitional piece as its great to wear for the rest of summer with sandals and you can also wear it with boots and tights come colder weather. This Dress is the right length on me and im under 5ft, so bear that in mind when buying this dress if your tall.

Red Beret – Missguided

This red beret adds instant chicness to any outfit and completes any outfit. This hat from missguided is of good quality and well made.

Mermaid Holographic Shell Bag – Home Bargains.

This bag is a decent size and holds a medium-sized purse, a passport, phone and a lipstick. This novelty bag adds quirkiness to any outfit and I’m obsessed with mermaid and Metallics this Summer.

Beauty Favourites

Rimmel Insta Contour Crayon -Medium

This Contour crayon is a Handbag essential as it’s a double ended contour crayon with a contour shade at one end and a highlighter at the other. This crayon makes creating a basic contour look easy and is great for when in a hurry.  The formulas of these crayons are high pigmented and easy to blend. However if you use too much of the contour shade it can look a little harsh.

B. Blending Sponge – Superdrug

After losing my previous blending sponge for the billionth time, and been without one for a few months. I finally give in again and bought another as I missed how the blending sponge blended in my liquid concealer compared to a brush. The results of using a beauty sponge are the results are more flawless and the makeup looks less cakey.  I just wish they didn’t roll away.

Bondi Sands Self tanning Foam Dark

This fake tan is easy to apply, has the most amazing coconut smell as you apply, this tends to fade as the tan develops and has a faint fake tan smell but the odour isn’t as strong as some of the other tans on the market. The tan develops to build a natural looking tan that fades after about a week that doesn’t leave you looking like a Zebra. The only negative side is the tan doesnt develop as dark as I would have liked but its more natural looking than some of the tans that i have used.  The bottle does recommend applying a second coat after 30 minutes for a darker tan, however I’ve not tried this yet. (if you would like a full review of this Product let me know).

OOTN- fifty Shades Of Pink 

Hi, hope you’ve all had a good weekend. This weekend I celebrated my daughters first Birthday (it only seems two minutes ago since I give birth), and had a day out in Leeds. What did you guys do?

Outfit details

For tonight’s post it features this dress in the it colour of the season again PINK!! I know I’m obsessed with this colour lately I think being a mum to a little girl has made me want to act like a princess again.  This eye-catching pink silk slip dress with matching Choker from Glitterbox clothing.  Fits the body nicely to accentuate your curves. I paired this dress with my fluffy pink heels. For accessories I wore rose gold jewellery and for the pictures a sparkly pink champagne glass was mandatory (if you don’t, can you even call yourself a blogger…).

For the makeup I wore a bronze gold smokey eye and nude lips. For the hair I curled it using my corkscrew curlers for the extra glamorous look.

I also feel this dress would look easily as good with a pair of white trainers and a denim jacket and white backpack for a laid back sports Luxe look. (Think Baby Spice from the Spice Girls).

Thanks for reading
