Craving some colour in your cheeks? Look no further

Just want to do a quick post about one of my favourite products (possibly of all time.) The best ever product to give your face an all round healthy glow, without looking at all orange is… (drum roll please!)

Garnier Ambre Solaire No Streaks Bronzer.

This stuff is an absolute dream. It is specifically for your face, and is so easy to use. All you need to do is hold it about 40cm from the face and move the can from side to side for about 3 seconds. If you follow these simple instructions, it leaves you with such a healthy glow and looks so natural. You can keep using it every day until you reach the desired colour. It is called self tanning dry face mist and it feels really light on your skin and dries in seconds.

Not only does it make you look like you have a natural tan (making you look so much healthier, especially in the Winter months when times are pale!) but it also smells INCREDIBLE. It is one of my favourite smells. Reminds me of holiday and just smells lovely… which is unexpected from a fake tan!

It is only £8.49 at Superdrug, but well worth the price – amazing product!

Peace and love and glowing faces x

Make it a happy Monday…

Ohh it’s Monday… again. 

As today is not many peoples’ favourite day and it is definitely not my favourite day, I thought I’d do a little post with a few things that are improving my day so far. If you are having a terrible day, maybe you should give one or two a go…

  • Listen to some reggae – literally, it transports me. I don’t know how, but it makes me feel so much happier. Close your eyes and pretend you are on a beach… DON’T look out the window, this will not help!
  • Go for a run/go to the gym – Get rid of anxiety, tension and stress and just run it all out… Even if you don’t want to, you will feel so much calmer afterwards.
  • Never underestimate the power of a CUP OF TEA. Take a minute, pause for thought, and put the kettle on… Take a break and relax. It solves everything.

If these don’t work… go to sleep ASAP, wake up and it’ll be Tuesday!

A love-list of Winter accessories

I went on a cheeky shopping trip yesterday to buy my best friend a birthday present… and ended up treated myself to a couple of little bits as well… oops!

Hat – New Look £7 (SALE)
Knee high socks – HnM £5.99
Ankle socks – New Look £2.99

At the moment there is a sale happening in New Look on loads of big wooly hats with fairly big reductions! I think the one that I bought was previously priced at £11.99 and it went down to £7! I absolutely love it… it’s nice and thick and cosy, but also the jewels on the front make it sparkle a bit, which is perfect for the Winter season as I love to get sparkly… actually I love getting sparkly in all the seasons…

The ankle socks are really cute with the frills and look pretty with ankle boots… I bought two pairs of these because I am terrible with socks… my sock drawer is full of odd socks and I just don’t understand how it happens!! (oops teehee)

Finally I bought some thick wooly knee high socks from HnM, which I can wear with my favourite Winter boots from All Saints as they come up to calf level. I love these as they are sooo cosy.

If you are looking for a cosy hat for Winter, I definitely recommend taking a trip to New Look – they have so many lovely ones in the sale!!

The Winter Dream… for the freest of people

When I think of Winter, I like to think of loads of cosy knitwear, snuggling, hot chocolate, mulled wine… But sometimes the reality is that you have freezing wet feet, cold hands and everything seems a little bit bleak.

Well, I can tell you with confidence that The Free People Blog makes Winter seem so beautiful. The editorials done with the incredible knitwear are literally what dreams are made of… ahhhhhhhh.

There is sooo much that I want from this website that I cannot even begin to describe… I intend to make a dreamlist of some beautiful items this weekend. (Obviously amongst uni work!) – Procrastination? Me? Never.

If you want to indulge in an item or two to make Winter feel a little more glam, then I recommend having a good browse on Free People – when you are done you will be so dazzled with gorgeousness that Winter may just become your favourite season…

Liz Earle – Like a facial every day…

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, Hot cloth cleanser is an absolute dream. It really does feel like you’ve just come out of Facial appointment every time you cleanse.

This week I’ve been trying to wear no make up most days. There is no big reason, it is just something I’ve been trying out to save a bit of money (on makeup) and clear up my skin a bit. My skin isn’t terrible, but I do get the occasional break out like most people. It is combination – it gets quite oily, but in this bleak Winter weather it can get quite dull and dry.

After halloween, a couple of friends came back to my flat for a few drinks as we weren’t going out (trying to save some money again – the life of a University student!!) and we were all covered in halloween makeup and not looking too pretty. After a couple of drinks, we thought it’d be a good idea to have a group cleanse, so I brought out the Liz Earle (a present off my Mum!) and we drunkenly got cleansing… weird but true.

Anyway, my friend absolutely fell in love with my cleanser and I thought I’d write a blog post about how right she is to do so – because it’s amazing!

You cleanse the face using your fingers in circular motions and then use a hot cloth to polish off the cleanser, before rinsing finally with warm water. I can honestly tell you that it gives you such a great glow, you feel like you’ve had a facial! It’s a very creamy cleanser and a little goes a long way. It feels like it is moisturising your face, but without being heavy in consistency. It’s so light and airy, your skin just feels so clean afterwards.

It’s quite pricey (around £15), but guess what is coming up soon? You know that thing where people exchange presents?! – Yes, I refuse to mention the name of it until after my December deadlines!

Peace and love and GLOWING SKIN x

Kate Moss (31) Winter lipstick loving

Recently I purchased one of Kate Moss’s Lasting finish lipstick by Rimmel. I am such a huge fan of the Kate Moss lipsticks as I love the range of colours on offer, but I thought I’d try number 31. this time because I wanted a Wintery red, ready for Christmas (teehee – sorry!)

I wore it yesterday for uni and although I think an 8 hour lasting time is a little generous, it is such a nice colour and although it is a bold red, can be worn quite casually. Normally I find red lipsticks look better on people with blue/green eyes, but I think this one works quite well with brown eyes because it’s a deeper, cranberry-ish colour. It does look a lot less red on – as you can see from the picture. As with all red lipstick, I’d definitely recommend lip liner as it tends to smudge with all lip activity! (I’m on about eating obviously!)

I think it’s a really lovely Winter lipstick, and would highly recommend… Need to try out some of the other Kate Moss colours – so far I’ve only gone for shades of red, so need some recommendations!

Cosy days and sparkly ways

Firstly, I want to say sorry for not having blogged in a month! Crazy behaviour! I have been ridiculously busy settling in to final year at uni… it really is just as hectic as they say! Looking forward to the degree at the end of it though! 🙂

I just wanted to write a little post on what I love so much about Autumn/Winter clothes…

What I do not enjoy is the rain.. and the cold… and getting in to uni looking completely dishevelled and like a drowned rat. However, I do love those cosy times when you put on a big snuggly jumper and it’s frosty and pretty outside.

Also, what is totally brilliant about this time of year, is that party-wear gets SEQUIN-Y and VELVETY and YUMMY.

Topshop’s Party Rules gives you some great tips on wearing sequins… which is worth a read if you like to sparkle! However, in my book, there are no rules about how sequin-y you can be… the more the better! 😉

The sequin range is also amazing… SEQUIN JOGGERS…. YES PLEASE. These will be making the Christmas list cut!
