Tailored Joggers

Saturday, 21 February 2015

One of the many reasons I want to move down South is the weather. I know I live in England, and 80% of the time it's raining wherever you are in the country, but whenever I'm down South it seems as if there's a lot more sun in comparison to the North.

Whilst I was visiting family, I picked up these Dark Khaki coloured tailored joggers from Dorothy Perkins. I loved the tie waist detail and felt like they would be a great piece to both dress up and dress down.

I paired these up with just a simple long sleeved black turtle neck and my black and white pointed sandals from Zara for a casual day out.

Charity Leather

Thursday, 12 February 2015

Long leather coats have never really been the one thing that catches my eye when it comes to buying outerwear. I seem to always look for a typical short biker jacket or just a general structured coat. But when I tried this on in a local charity shop I thought it would be something different that I could hang in my wardrobe. Can't go wrong for £12 now can you?

Teamed up with my sturdy DM's and just some casual black jeans (that unfortunately make my legs look very stumpy on pictures) and a black baggy velvet tee is all I needed to quickly get up and go when I visited family in St Neots/Cambridge last weekend.

4 Trench Coats I'm Lusting Over

Tuesday, 3 February 2015

Trench Coats

Trench coats are always popular when it comes to outerwear. When I think of them, I always have an image of Caroline Flack in her beige coloured Burberry tailored trench strutting her stuff. 

They're such a classic statement piece that everybody loves to wear, whether it be on the day with some skinny jeans and some brogues or on the night with a LBD and some pointed toe court heels. Personally, I think we all should have at least one good trench coat in our wardrobe ready to be grabbed when the weather turns grey, which is 90% of the time in England. 

I've been seeing trench coats a lot recently online and I've been lusting over these four in particular. The light grey Urban Outfitters one is my favourite. I've found it very hard to resist clicking 'add to basket' whilst I'm trying to save up. *crying face*

Lets see in a few more weeks if I can still resist the urge!!

Review | LUSH Grease Lightning Spot Treatment

Sunday, 1 February 2015

For the past few months I have been really struggling with my skin, i.e. the amount of hideous spots that have decided to linger on my face. I've been shopping around for different solutions to test out and decided to give the spot treatment from Lush a go seen as though so many people have raved about it. 

I applied the gel formula treatment to my spots both morning and night and found that the easy pump action bottle made it very easy to apply. I did noticed a slight improvement with the redness and inflammation of my pimples and spots over a few days.

It's designed to prevent spots from erupting not actually get rid of the ones already formed. Therefore, I unfortunately overestimated this little bottle as I thought and was hoping it was going to eliminate my current spots. 

For only £6.40 for 45g I do think it's a bargain. I'm going to carry on using this to see if I find anymore improvements but I do think I need to look around for another product to get rid of these annoying creatures still on my face.

Did this spot treatment work for you? Do you recommend any products that will help with my spots?
