February Favourites

Hi my beauty’s, hope all is well. February was my birthday month, so I got some new additions to my ever growing beauty collection. I’m a hoarder and running out of room. So I decided it’s time instead of buying the same products time and time again when I have draws full of similar products to use the products I already have. I’m also the type to run out of a mascara then have to buy 2 or 3 new mascaras to replace that 1 mascara even though I have loads already. Please tell me I’m not the only one who does this.

Zoeva Rose Golden Eye Palette

This palette was a gift from my sister for my birthday. I love the packaging of this cute palette. It features 10 high pigmented shades in a range of matte, metallic and satin finishes. I love the colours as I love creating a rose gold/copper smokey eye. The eyeshadows are easy to blend and last all day. I will definitely be looking into buying more zoeva products.

Avon Big & Daring Mascara

After seeing all the hype about the Benefit Bad Gal Bang mascara and reading the mixed reviews. I decided against buying it as I couldn’t justify to myself spending that much money on a mascara when I have a drawer full of mascaras already. After seeing the pictures of people’s full eyelashes using the Bad Gal Bang mascara. I decided to try out a more voluminous mascara so I reached for this one. This mascara definitely delivers on the va-va volume aspect. My eyelashes were longer and thicker than when using my normal mascara. Avon claims this mascara is clump free however it does clump but I like that look, plus my mascara has dried out a bit so that might be why. Looking at pictures of others wearing the bad gal Bang mascara i can see that this mascara gives similar results however I can’t say for sure as I’ve not tried the bad gal bang yet.

Johnson’s Baby Lotion

In my opinion, this moisturiser is quite underrated as a beauty product. Before I got into proper skincare, I used to use this to take off my makeup like my mum and nannan have done for years. It’s effective at even removing waterproof mascara and doesn’t hurt the eyes like some products can do. It leaves skin as soft as a baby’s bottom. Recently I’ve been using this for a morning on the days when I can’t be bothered to do a full-on skincare routine. Which ill be honest is a lot recently. My skin looks better using and feels more moisturised than when I’ve used some of my more expensive products.

Palmer’s Rosehip Skin Therapy Oil

After running out of my beloved coconut oil and on a quest to work my way through my drawers full of skincare products that I’ve been hoarding, I decided to try this. This oil is said to improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, dry damaged skin and uneven skin tone. I used this daily after my shower on my stretch marks. I can’t see much of a difference in the appearance of them but I don’t think I ever will unless anyone knows of a miracle stretch mark remover. My skin feels softer and looks smoother though. The only downside thing about this was that I didn’t get the pump dispenser which would have saved product and a lot of mess.

Zara corduroy Nautical Cap

Another month another new hat. It wouldn’t be a monthly favourite without one. After dropping hints to my other half everytime I watched the Havana music video by Camila Cabello about how much I wanted a red baker boy cap and a mustard one. The boy did good and got me this beauty for my birthday. If I could have a baker boy hat in every colour and style I think I’d be very happy. #hatgoals

Zara Fringed flower Earrings

Another present from the other half, the boy knows me better than I know myself. I love statement earrings at the moment and these beauties certainly make a statement. These are actually comfortable to wear and don’t drag down the ears like you would think.

Gordons Pink Gin

Towards the end of last year I rediscovered gin and fell in love. It no longer tasted like perfume like it did when I was 15 when I raided the house alcohol cupboard and poured half a bottle of gin and a dash of whatever you could find, (Disclaimer I don’t condone underage drinking and you should definitely not try it unless you want to be ill with a hangover for days). Thankfully my drink making days have come a long way and now my gin and tonics don’t taste like pure perfume especially with this new pink version. It’s so nice if you like gin you should deffo try it. It has a subtle taste of strawberries and raspberries. Plus it makes your drink look all pretty and pink.

Youtube

Last month I fell back in love with watching my favourite bloggers on YouTube. I love relaxing after having a bath and doing a mini self-care session just watching YouTube.

OOTD – Feline Fine

Hi, my beauties, hope all is well. After three weeks off, today sees my return to the world of work and a new job.

The Trend Behind The Outfit

Leopard Print

Leopard print is another timeless classic that most fashionistas have at least one classic item of clothing in this print. In the 1950’s Dior created a range of accessories and leopard print then became the must-have print. In the 1960’s, 1970’s and 1980’s leopard print was associated with rock stars. No one rocked leopard print quite like Blondie. Fast forward to modern day, leopard print is a classic print that is regularly seen on fashion icons like Kate Moss and Alexa Chung. The animal print was seen on this years Spring/Summer Catwalks at Stella Mccartney, Givenchy and Prada. Models at Versace were seen wearing the print head to toe. If you’re not brave enough to wear the print from head to toe. The one key rule to remember when wearing leopard print is to treat it like any black item in your wardrobe. For example, instead of wearing a black blazer with a slogan tee and jeans, you could wear a leopard print blazer. Leopard print also looks good when clashed with other prints especially stripes and spots. A simple way to incorporate leopard print into an outfit is by adding leopard print accessories. The colour red also looks great when paired with leopard print. Leopard print is here to stay as it was also featured on the AW18 catwalks at Tom Ford, Victoria Beckham and Calvin Klein.

OOTD – Always Time For Polka Dots

Hey, my beauty’s hope all is well? Today’s post features this year’s Spring Summer trend Polka Dots. As Marc Jacobs Said, “There is never a wrong time for a Polka Dot.” I have to agree with him as i love polka dots and their classic print brightens up any day and outfit. This week has been relatively boring well asides from the fact that I finally spent some of my Birthday money on a Nasty Gal order, well they did have 40% off so how could a girl resist. I look forward to sharing some of the clothes in future blog posts.

The Trend Behind the outfit.

Polka Dots

Polka dots are a timeless piece that all fashionistas should have in their wardrobe, along with stripes, leopard print and florals. These prints are timeless and never go out of style.  Polka dots were seen on the catwalks of some of the biggest fashion brands from Valentino, Self – Portrait and Carolina Herrera. Polka dots were updated for Spring/summer 2018 with Monochrome styling and cool modern shapes.  This year more is definitely more.
