2019

 

The new year feels like the fresh start everyone’s been waiting for. Almost like, it’s a new book instead of a new chapter. I get it… I’m one of those that love looking forward to the idea of what’s to come in the next few months and setting goals for myself that I hope to achieve.

Reflection is an important part of growth and I hope you’ve been able to look back at the last year and celebrate what you have achieved as well as thinking of what you would like to achieve in the near future. Remember to celebrate the little things. They are after all, what add up to the big things.

Speaking of setting goals; relaunching this blog and getting back into what I love is one of mine. Basically, I’m going to pick up where I left off and do more of it this year. Please hold me to it…

Happy New Year.

Here’s to another one. x

Denim Spring

 

Hi al! So this is my first post sinceI’ve moved my blog over to wordpress, which is why I haven’t posted for the last week because I’ve been trying to figure this all out! What do you guys think so far?

This photoset is another from the collection that Marianne and I shot together a couple of months ago and it’s perfect for the Spring weather. We’re currently in the midst of a bank holiday thunderstorm but when the sun comes back out again, a graphic white-tee and some denim is always a good shout. I’ve had these dungarees for a couple of years but never really reached for them as much as I have in the last few months. I’ve been trying to work more colour and different options into my wardrobe instead of always sticking to black and this is one that I’m really enjoying at the moment.

The great thing about dungarees is that you can always layer up with them a little more to keep you warmer on cooler evenings or make it less layered with a tee or cute bralette to keep it lighter and more summery.

Glow

Hey guys! So, Spring is full under way and I know a lot of you girls are going to looking for products to help you shine like the sun, so I’ve decided to give you guys a little run down of the products I like to use on my Dry/Combination skin to help keep me hydrated and glowing! Obviously in the sun you don’t need as much moisture as you do in the colder days but I tend to get dry really easily and jugs not a cute look when I leave my house glowing but have foundation dried up in patches on my face. Here are the products I use on a daily basis to help keep me soft and glowing…

Moisturiser/Suncream: Simple
Suncream is very important to using products that already have it mixed in is a good time saver and a way to make sure you don’t forget to put it on.

Facial Oil: Superdrug Vitamin E Facial Oil
This facil oil is an absolute favourite of mine. I actually got this last year to use while I found one I loved just so I could have extra hydration and ended up loving it so much I didn’t bother looking for another facial oil. It leaves my skin glowing and a little goes a long way! I use a couple of drops morning and night and press it into my skin after toning.

Liquid Highlight: Sleek Barekissed Illuminator
This product is so beautiful and you can build it up as you please! I use a little bit mixed in with my foundation on days where I want to looo extra dewy. It also comes in a couple of colours so you can play around and find what works best for you or you enjoy most.

Powder Highlight: Sleek – Solstice Palette
I’ve been using this palette for the last 2 years or so and I’m just as obsessed as I’ve ever been. I do try other highlighters here and there but as far as drugstore highlighters go, this is a firm favourite and nothing seems to ever outdo this one for me.

That’s pretty much the products I use on a daily for extra glow! Hope this is helpful to you guys and please do share any products you’re in love with so I can give them a go too!
