Summer Outfits To Kill

Hello Everyone, 

Hope you are well?

It has been a while since I have actually wrote a blog post I have to say!

Most of my time is focused on my Instagram page now I will admit. I just find it more active with viewers than the old fashioned reading of blog posts. Or is that just me?

Anyway this weather & this time of year is the best!
I am such a sun baby I have to say. It always makes your mood & everything else so much better. 
Plus I find the outfits & clothes can be better to pick. From the colours, style & other things.

During the summer I normally tend to team a summery top up with ripped jeans. Especially when the weather isn't quite hot for shorts or a cloudy weather day. Then it is my go to choice. The summer evenings can also be cool still so sometimes a thin cotton shirt or blouse can be a good choice.

I was looking around for something that would fit that category & come across Just Your Outfit on Instagram. They are an online fashion brand with such a choice of clothes & also more importantly affordable! Which is a must when shopping for clothes. They can also be found on ASOS market place where you can make a purchase from them, they also sell male clothes too.

So I picked from them a white embroidered tassel embellished shirt. The shirt is so light & thin which is perfect for those summer evenings or a cooler summer day. Plus the embroidered front makes it different that just a plain shirt & gives though boho kind of vibes which is what summer outfits sometimes need. Teamed with a pair of jeans, flip flops & the right accessories it makes such a great outfit! Effortless, simple but cute! Plus the shirt was only £15.

*Strengthen weak & dormant follicles to regrow healthy hair, helping to reverse the effects of hair loss

Their products are formulated with the purest ingredients such as clean herbal fragrances. They are also not tested on animals or use ingredients that have been either.

I got from them a shampoo & conditioner to try.

Ginkgo & Sabal Fortifying Shampoo 

Packed with pro vitamins & minerals this is a ultra nourishing shampoo which contains active ingredients to cleanse away substances that can block your hair follicles. It also restores the hairs structural fibres. The Ginkgo Biloba extract revitalises hair while Sabal extract promotes hair growth. It is also packed with antioxidant vitamins, it strengthens hair & prevents hair loss.

Sensationail Gel Nails

Hello Everyone,

Hope you are well?

I am such a lover of gel nails. They are so much better than normal nail polishes I think. They last longer unlike normal nail polishes which seem to chip after just a couple of days! I find that so annoying. But with gel nail polishes they can last up to 2 weeks & it is just as easy to do yourself!

I came across Sensationail in Boots before picked up the pick to read but I will admit I put it back down. Simply because I was trying to be good in what I am spending money on at the moment.

Sensationail is the leading at home gel manicure brand. It allows people to create their own Gel nails in the comfort of their own home with salon quality results that are also affordable! 

You can purchase from them a starter kit which includes everything you need to start. Plus you also get 10 applications out of the kit. It includes the exclusive pro 3060 LED lamp which is designed to safely & quickly cure your gel nail polish. After the kit has gone you can simply purchase the essentials kit & the colour of your choice & you are all good to go again!

I have the Raspberry wine shade which is a darker pink shade. It is gorgeous.

Inside the box you get:

*Pro 3060 LED lamp
*Gel cleanser 
*Gel Primer
*Gel Base & Top coat
*Gel Polish 
*Lint Free Wipes
*Double sided nail buffer
*Manicure stick
*Detailed instruction sheet

After you have had the 10 applications you then simply look at the range of gel polishes they offer & pick one. They even do glitter colours which are gorgeous!

I found the kit easy to use & they polish lasted for just under 2 weeks! Which is great! It means not having to change your nail colour every couple of days. For anyone who hasn't tried a home Gel kit I would really recommend it! It really is life changing.

So it is perfect for people like me who have oily or combination skin.

To use it you simply apply a thin layer of the mask on your face & neck & leave it on for 15 minutes. Remove with cool water & dry your face.

The mask smells amazing I have to say. Not only that but it did help with my pores. Around my nose area I can sometimes have visible pores so this really did help after using this mask a few times.

Cohorted Luxury Beauty Subscription

Hello Everyone!

Previously I have signed up to some beauty boxes to try, amongst them the like's of Birchbox, glossybox etc. But I forever found myself paying for it & the box arriving then I wouldn't use half of the products in them. So I stopped having them simply because I felt as though I was wasting money. 

Then I came across CohortedCohorted is the number one premium beauty box. So for your monthly cost you get sent the higher end products which are full sized products which are worth nearly 3 times than the amount of the subscription itself! 

I was lucky enough to be sent a February box to try & I have to say it is easily one of the best beauty boxes I have tried. Simply because you get a range of products, value for money on high end products. They have also been voted no 1 luxury beauty box & loved by Glamour, Vogue & others.

Your monthly subscriptions contain a selection of products which come in an all black box, finished with a black hand tied bow.

The February box contained:

Percy & Reed - Dry Instant Volumising Spray 
A non sticky, dry instant volumising spray which pumps up your hair in a flash. You simply apply it to dry hair, ensuring to shake the can well before use, lift & spray from the underneath in an upward direction.

Percy & Reed - Volumising Mousse
A little bottle which gives you long lasting volume. This is a creamy mousse which builds volume in your hair to the extreme. Light & airy which builds from root to tip. Just dispense a small amount into your palm & smooth through towel dried hair from root to tip with your fingers or a comb. Dry & style as normal.

Agent Provocateur - Pure Aphrodisiaque
My first thought on this perfume is if it smells as good as their lingerie looks it's got to be a winner! From one of the most iconic fashion brands in the world, founded by the son of Vivienne Westwood. They create the best looking lingerie, nightwear, swimwear & accessories. This is a romantic, floral, fruity & musky scent which smells amazing! 

Elemis - Pro Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm 
One of my favourite skin care brands! Their skin care range always gives great results & they are made from natural products. But I am yet to try this product. This is the no 1 bestselling cleansing balm, it soothes & deeply cleanses the skin. It is packed with Rose & Mimosa waxes which are infused with oils to help protect & nourish the skin. 

Too Faced - La Creme - Colour Drenched Lip Cream - Shade: Taffy
Too faced are one of my favourite make up brands, they are always such great quality, they have the best shades & the packaging are always gorgeous. This lip stick is a super luxe combination of creamy colour & intense hydration. It comes in 25 amazing colours so their is something for everyone. They are formulated with white lotus flower extract that helps hydrate, soothe & condition your lips. 

Lord & Berry - Waterproof Mascara - Shade: Black
Let's face it waterproof mascara always comes in use on holidays & even for everyday use. Lord & Berry have brought out a collection called "Black Wardrobe Collection" which is inspired by the original little black dress by Coco Chanel. The Scuba pro mascara defines & coats the your lashes from root to tip for a big impact, waterproof & volumising effect. 

Lord & Berry - Shodo Stylographic Eyeliner - Shade: Intense Black
This eye liner pen features a Japanese calligraphy inspired pen that draws precise thick & thin lines. It is quick drying, smudge proof & gives a smooth application. The film type base line is resistant to sweat & water & dissolves away with warm wate.

Chanel - Precision Eye Definer 
The box either came with a lip definer or a eye definer. I was lucky enough to get the eye definer. Which for me is good simply because I don't wear lip liner. But it can help to shape your lips & give them a good definition with a creamy textured lip pencil. The eye definer helps to shade the eye contour with intense colour that can easily be adjusted. The supple integrated latex applicator allows you to soften the look if you wish to.

So as you can see you get such a selection of products which are such high end products! The subscription is £35 per month but you really do get your money's worth!

Australian Bodycare

Hello Everyone, 

So recently I have been trying a new skincare range from Australian bodycare

Australian Bodycare is a brand leader in tea tree oil products since it started in 1992. It firstly began introduced in salons & the spa market & has since developed into also home use. Their body care products not only help heal but they help to maintain clean & healthy skin & hair. 

These are the first products I have tried from the brand.
The two products I got are two different skin washes.

The first products I got are:

Lemon Myrtle, Mandarin & Thyme - Skin Wash 
This body wash is packed with Tea tree oil & the added zesty scent of Mandarin Peel oil, Orange Peel Oil & Australian Lemon Myrtle. The zesty aroma adds to your daily showering! Plus the added Tea tree oil adds to giving you that all over freshness. It is skin friendly PH, suitable for all skin types.

Lavender Skin Wash 
This Tea tree & Lavender combined skin wash helps to cleanse, refresh & soothe the skin. It has antiseptic properties of Tea tree oil which helps remove odour which can cause bacteria & calm minor skin irritations such as blemishes & breakouts. While Lavender gently cleanses & soothes while leaving a subtle aroma.

Both of the products smell amazing & left my skin feeling so soft & fresh after using them. They also don't leave your skin feeling dry which I like as some can leave a like drying effect.

So I would definitely love to try more of Australian Bodycare's products.

Bath Time With Irregular Cosmetics

Hello Everyone,

So we all know by now that I am a huge lover of baths!
They literally solve a lot plus they are great for taking time out with.

I have always loved bath bombs, especially that smell when you walk into lush cosmetics. It is amazing! That is exactly what I got when I received a box full of goodies from Irregular cosmetics.

Irregular Cosmetics are a new brand which are starting up so I was lucky enough for them to send me their first 7 products to try. 

The products arrived in a recycled box, which was secured with eco friendly biodegradable tape & potato starch based chips to product the bath treats. The print outs inside the box are also printed on recycled paper! So if you love the thought of being kind to the earth this is just one reason for you to love the brand!

Irregular Cosmetics are against animal testing. Their products are all cruelty free & vegan friendly. All the ingredients that are inside the products can be found on the print out in the box. So if you are allergic to anything it is easy for you to find out if you can use them.

To me self care is important & that is another thing the brand likes to support. They know that feeling good about yourself can be difficult & making time for you can be hard. All of their products promote self care helping give you that "you" time that we all need.

Not only that but all products are handmade which I love! As they are not massed produced. Supporting smaller companies is important as it helps support someones dream & also I think you get better quality for your money.

The first 7 products I got were:

*Blue Skies - Relax, Renew, Love Blue Say Hello To Blue Skies, Refresh your mind, body & soul with this empowering spa like fragrance

*Touch Of Class - This feel good bath bomb is here to add a touch of sparkle to your day. Matched with a fantastic floral fragrance.

*Keep It Sweet - This bath bomb is full of positive energy combined with a sweet uplifting & fresh fragrance.

*No Worries - The colours we used are fully water soluble however the red can transfer on your hands but they do wash off.

*Technicolor Dream - Spoil your senses with a juicy fun fragrance & enjoy the Technicolor surprise. 

*The Purple Pause - Take a pause & clear your mind. Settle down with this Lavender & Ylang Ylang bath bomb. 

*Bath Art In A Bag

The scent of all the products are amazing! Not only that but they leave the bath water smelling incredible & leave you feeling relaxed. I am so impressed with the quality, brand & also how relaxed they leave you feeling.
