SUNGLASSES: MISSONI // SCARF: POWDER // DRESS: SHEINSIDE // SHOES: SOLE AFFAIR // BAG: VIDA VIDA // WATCH: NIXON

ANOTHER DRESS?? what is happening to me?? I ditched the jeans today and went for a midi dress and sandals,I did wear a jacket and scarf to keep that cold wind at bay but I very much enjoyed getting my pale,pork pie skin out for the first time this year.(I'm pretty sure its impossible to make knees look nice in photos)

New in my wardrobe is this absolutely stunning leather satchel,I've been on the hunt for the perfect one for god knows how long and ended up getting my hands on this one,the leather is buttery soft,beautifully made and it is large enough for a weekend away too which is perfect for the travellers amongst us.It's also personalised with my initials under the flap which I adore!!

I can't wait to wear more dresses this Spring/Summer,a basic piece like this is so easy to dress up or down and every girl needs one in her wardrobe.

Much Love

MY SKINCARE ROUTINE

P1100825
LOREAL MICELLAR WATER // THEBODYSHOP CLEANSER // EFFACLAR DUO // ANKH RAH MORINGA OIL // THEBODYSHOP ALOE NIGHT CREAM

I thought I'd share my current skin routine,I've been suffering with terrible redness and under skin breakouts,mainly on my one cheek.These are the products I swear by and have worked wonders at combatting the issue.
P1100826
1. Loreal Micellar Water // I use this mainly to remove my eye make up,it removes stubborn mascara residue and doesn't sting my eyes in the slightest.

2. TheBodyShop Camomile Cleansing Oil // I use about 2 pumps of this silky liquid and massage it into my face (on top of make up) for around 30 seconds,this stuff is my holy grail product,it removes every last bit of make up,it feels lovely,its extremely gentle and it smells divine.
P1100827
3. Effaclar Duo // This product is definitely worth the hype,if you get under skin lumps and bumps then this stuff is for you.It targets sebum spots and banishes them,it has helped reduce my breakouts by miles and is an awesome base for make up to glide onto.It has a clean and fresh scent which I adore.

4. TheBodyShop Aloe Night Cream // This is a new product for me,I used to use The Body Shop's vitamin E night cream but fancied a change and i'm so glad I chose this.It has no scent,its a thick,rich consistency and leaves my skin feeling so plump and nourished.I apply this after the Effaclar Serum just before bed,my skin drinks it up while I sleep and feels amazing by the morning.

5. Ankh Rah Moringa Oil // I'm a fan of trying herbal products and am always intrigued about new ones on the market,wether they are food supplements or beauty products containing herbal goodness.
I stumbled upon the Moringa oil and had never heard of it before so I wanted to give it a test drive on my problematic skin,You can read exactly what it is HERE but in a few words from me.... I LOVE IT!! I use it at night on my red cheeks,across the bridge of my nose and on my chin,my redness has dramatically improved.
You can also cook with this product and use it in your hair,an all round must have product in my opinion.

Does anyone else suffer from Redness or Roseaca?What are your go to products?

Much Love

CUT OUT

DRESS: SHEINSIDE // WATCH: NIXON // JACKET: ANOTHER8 // CONVERSE: JD SPORTS

Theres comes a point every year where I get sick to death of the cold,I no longer want to be miserable and I no longer want to be trussed up in every long sleeved item I own in a bid to stay warm.

I bit my lip and donned a dress for the first time this year,I played it down by adding a varsity style bomber for a bit of warmth and some converse.I feel like on a sunny crisp day you can get away with baring the legs,c'mon ladies get em out!!!

THE LACE SKIRT

P1100777P1100774P1100779P1100775P1100784P1100787
EARRINGS: T.H BAKER // TSHIRT: VINTAGE // SKIRT: SHOWPO // BAG: SKULLDUGGERY VINTAGE //  WATCH: SWATCH @ HOUSE OF WATCHES

Another different kind of outfit for me today,obviously I didn't wear this out because its far too annoyingly cold still but I thought I'd throw and outfit together based around this lovely bohemian inspired skirt (which has shorts underneath,BONUS).
I tried to make it a touch more masculine by adding a band tee and some trainers.
I can't wait to float around the beach in the summer in this skirt,it just screams sun,sand,bare feet and cocktails.

How would you style it?

SMART TROUSERS

P1100719P1100726P1100728P1100722
NECKLACE: H&M // TEE: SHEINSIDE // TROUSERS: HYBRID // NEW BALANCE: ASOS // WATCH: NIXON

I based this outfit around these smart,navy trousers and went for a simple toned down look.
I love the trouser trend but have never got around to trying it,pairing them with a simple white tee and trainers can turn what seems like workwear into a more laid back look.They could also be quickly transformed into night wear by just adding heels and a bold lip.

How would you style them?

DAILY ESSENTIALS

P1100762P1100761P1100764
BAG: CHOIES // PURSE: STATUS ANXIETY // CAMERA: SONY A5000 // MAKE UP BAG: H&M // SCARF: MOONCATS // NOTEBOOK: TKMAXX // MINTS: PEPPERSMITH

I thought I'd show you inside my bag today.I'm forever chopping and changing bags but i'm currently loving this faux leather backpack,its roomy,looks great,fits all of my essentials in and is comfortable to wear (theres nothing worse than a bag that digs into your shoulder).

I'm addicted to these peppermints by Peppersmith at the moment,if you haven't tried them you need to,I carry them everywhere,they use an alternative to sugar which is called xylitol,they basically reduce plaque and decay and don't leave that horrible false taste that normal chewing gum or mints do. I have one after every meal to cut down the risk of build up on my teeth.

If you would like to see whats in side my daily make up bag let me know.

P.S Try the mints out!! I've got a 20% off code you can use at the checkout, 'TRYME'

CARMEN DRESS

P1100731P1100729P1100730P1100733P1100735DRESS: CHI CHI CLOTHING // WATCH: NIXON

This outfit is properly out of my comfort zone, so much so that I have no shoes to wear with it, however I thought the print was stunning,I love blue with blonde hair they just seem to go so well together.

Something very different for me but it doesn't hurt to try new things out once in a while,I quite like feeling/looking like a girl for a change.I spend most of my life in jeans and a T-shirt so throwing on a floral print definitely put a smile on my face and gave me an instant figure.

What do you think? (please be kind)

NEW IN: SMART JOGGERS

P1100712P1100714P1100717P1100716JUMPER: SHEINSIDE // JOGGERS: BLUE VANILLA // WATCH: NIXON // ADIDAS GAZELLES

A quick post today as i'm running out of the door to go to dinner   (not in this outfit).

You have probably guessed by now that i'm a sucker for comfort,if I can get away with sobbing about in joggers and a jumper I will.
I love this combo as it looks slightly put together,It's great for casual days whilst running errands or when jeans seem like your worst nightmare.

BETTY TAKES OVER

DSC00361Its Betty's Turn to be on the blog today,she has been testing out some goodies from Petshop.co.uk so we thought we would share our views on the deliciousness she was sent.
DSC00367
Betty usually eats James Wellbeloved Lamb and Rice biscuits and I hadn't really considered any other forms of dried food, purely because she likes what she has.However the Almo Nature seemed to go down a treat as did the Symply meat.There was also a little bag of treats in the box which consisted of chicken chunks from Natures Menu,she adores these and we take them on walks.
DSC00432
I mixed a few of her old biscuits in to start and added a bit of water to create soft meaty chunks,she wolfed it down as usual and from what I could tell,really enjoyed it.

DSC00364
Overall she loved everything in the package and we will definitely be looking into these products again.

Thank you Petshop.co.uk

Much Love
BETTY
