Concealer

 
Concealer has recently become a more important step in my beauty routine. This is because I hardly wear foundation anymore but I still want to be able to cover up some of my imperfections.
 
I tend to use a combination of the two concealers above (Natural Collection Concealer and The Collection Concealer). The former is more liquid, easy to apply yet slightly too dark. Nevertheless The Collection concealer gives much better coverage, is brightening however can appear cakey.
 
Because of this I use a combination of the two in order to conceal and achieve the appearance of flawless skin.
 
What concealers do you recommend? Let me know either by commenting below or via Twitter.

Until next time,

Warmer Weather



Dress - Primark
Cardigan - Hand-Knitted
Belt - H&M
Bag - Urban Outfitters
Trainers - Converse
 
This is an outfit I wore recently to visit a friend of mine at university. The weather was beautiful and extremely hot and we decided to go for a long walk around the town. This outfit therefore is a combination of practicality and finally feeling like spring is here.
 
This dress from Primark actually came as a surprise to me. Despite it only costing £5 I don't feel like it looks cheap and I've seen similar in retailers such as H&M and Topshop for a higher price. I did actually look to buy another one of these dresses in a different colours. However personally I think the other colours made the material see-through and therefore look it's price.
 
What sort of outfits do you wear in hot weather? And do you ever find that different colours can affect how an item of clothing looks?

My Wishlist: Jewellery



Tribal Rings - Topshop
Crocodile Strap Watch - Urban Outfitters
Nyx Moonstone Necklace - Shop Dixi
Open Hoop Earrings - ASOS
 
 
This is my wish list of jewellery I'd like to own. I haven't had any new jewellery in a while and I rarely buy it myself so this month I'm thinking of treating myself to something new.
 
With jewellery I like to keep it quite simple as it means it can be worn in various ways and even layered with other pieces.
 
Let me know what items of jewellery you've been liking recently.
 
Until next time,

Crop Top and Shirt




Crop Top - Topshop
White Shirt - Primark
Gold Chain - H&M


I bought this white crop top from Topshop last week and right away I knew I wanted to find a way of styling it for day time wear. I like my clothes to be multi-functional as only then can I feel like I got value for money.

I was inspired to wear my crop top over my shirt from seeing cropped jumpers being worn in a similar way. I love the effect this layering has. It adds texture, isn't too heavy and makes this basic white button up like a whole new shirt. I added the gold chain because I think gold and white make for a beautiful combination.

Let me know what you think of this outfit today? Also how do you wear your crop tops during the day? Make sure to comment below or even Tweet me!

Platform Shoes

 
Shoes - Topshop
 
I have been obsessed with these shoes ever since I saw them online. I'm not yet able to wear high heels meaning flat forms and wedges are really the only answer for me when I want to look a bit dressier. These shoes have been worn to job interviews, nights out and dinner dates. They can make any outfit look instantly dressier even if that outfit is jeans and a plain t-shirt.
 
As well as being so multi-functional these shoes are actually quite comfy. Because they're a flat form your foot isn't positioned in that awkward tilted angle all night and the straps round the ankle help to keep them in place.
 
Let me know what your favourite pair of shoes are this month either by commenting below or through Twitter.

White T-Shirts

 



T-Shirt - American Apparel
Leather Jacket - Topshop
Jeans - All Saints
 
White, boyish t-shirts are great because they're easy to wear and they look really effortless. I bought this one from American Apparel during my trip to New York a few years ago. For me styling a basic white t-shirt requires a good jacket and a pair of jeans for that model off-duty inspired look; the sort of thing you see Cara Delevingne strolling around in.

New Hair Products


I've been trying out some new hair products recently. The problem with my hair is that a lot of recommended regimes are extremely time intensive which doesn't really fit it in with all the other 100s of things I have to do. Having these three products is great because they do three very different things to get really nice results.

The Aussie leave in conditioner helps to keep my hair moisturised as well as defining my curls.
The Argan Oil then locks in this moisture as well as adding a healthy shine to my hair.
Finally the freeze ease touch up cream does what is says, it reduces frizz as well as holding my hair in place pretty much all day.

What are your go-to hair products recently? Let me know either by commenting below or tweeting me.
