“AND IF THE MUSIC IS GOOD, YOU DANCE”

So the music festival season has started, Coachella seems live and fun but I don’t think I will ever get a chance to go with prices starting at £310 for a general admission ticket! that is an eye watering price. Then you have the Wireless Festival which is more affordable with prices starting at £55 for a certain day and Glastonbury Leeds Festival which is also different prices for different day but prices can start from £205 which include access all weekend as well as camping.

I have never actually been to a music festival before ( i hope I will one day go) but this outfit to me screams fun and comfortable. the blouse is thin and airy so if its hot it will let air in and keep you cool as well as prevent you from getting sun burn ( I know the mum in me kicked in lol) but if its a bit cold and wet let most of the festivals in UK tend to be it can also give you a little bit of cover so you can stay a bit warm.

The skirt is a stretchy material which is great as there is a lot of food to eat at these festivals so you need some thing that will let your stomach expand and breath as you go through all that food. The band around the waist is also stretchy which makes it very comfortable to wear and move around.

I am also wearing a bralet which has pink and white flowers on it which I though has a real festival vibe going on and its a fun little outfit to add to your festival outfit and its doing the picker boo look without exposing and showing too much . It has no wires what so ever in it but it provide the support needed and its really comfortable.

For shoes I would go for something really comfortable as I would be on my feet for a long time and you need something you can dance in all day and all night.

The shoes am wearing are Next hogans which are so comfortable and airy to wear, the sole is chunky which gives you some height but it helps your feet so they are not hurting or too low on on the ground to cause uncomfortableness. The outside material is cloth but a thick cloth, they do not weight you down though after the festival you will have to wash them but hey that’s style for ya lol.

So what do you think of this outfit? would you wear it to a festival or nah?

“MAKEUP IS SELF- CONFIDENCE APPLIED DIRECTLY TO THE FACE”

(NOT SPONSORED)

Since I started wearing make up and taking care of my skin I have always been a minimal product usage kind of girl, I have never been the type to change my products or yoyo with different ones because the ones I used worked fine.

When I lived at home with my mum I always just used what she bought which was usually Vaseline lol. We use to use Vaseline for basically everything! from body to feet and of course on the lips. Since I got married I started testing out different beauty products because I wanted a change as I was grown and all lol and at one point I would have so many products which I would have used for only a couple times just sitting there collecting dust.

For the last few years I found the products that work for me and I have stuck to them and my skin has thanked me for that still working with minimal products.

IMG_1842

The one product I have religiously used continuously over many years now is the Garnier body intensive 7 days lotion in Shea butter. I have tried many body lotions trying to find one that worked for my body and they all would either make my skin dry like the dessert, oily or just look dead. But since I started using the Garnier lotion for very dry skin (though my body is not that dry) my skin is so soft and the softness lasts till the next day when I have a bath. It is also fast absorbing so you wont be there getting  a work out putting lotion on your body. Looking at the ingredients it contains Shea butter of course, water which is always great for your body, olive fruit oil, palm oil, mineral oil and many other ingredients but my point is having all these oils in one bottle has to make ones body soft and smooth.

For moisturing my face I use three products at the moment one is Nivea moisturising cream. Their main ingredients are Jojoba oil which is very moisturing and Vitamin E which helps with to protect cells ( I know I have gone all scientific lol). I use this cream at night before I go bed which helps keep my skin soft through out the night even in winter time when I wake up my skin still feels soft and looks dewy. The other product is B Restored day cream now I have only just started using this product not too long ago but let me tell you something, it is very mosturising and quite thick which I think is needed because weather seasons like winter and summer can make your skin drier than usual so you need something thick to add extra moisture. Lastly for my face I use Superdrug Optimum instant anti-wrinkle eye cream for under my eyes. I use it in the morning and evening and I have found that once I start rubbing it into my eye area I can see the lines reduce! which am not gonna lie I was skeptical if it would do anything ( am always skeptical with such things) but it done something so I will see if it will reduce the appearance of the lines more over time.

For washing my face I have been using Nip Fab exfoliate which has Glycolic and B. Revealed Glycolic cleansing peel. Both these products have Glycolic Acid in them which helps treat uneven skin,acne,oily skin etc. It basically does what it says on the tin, after using any of these products I can see and feel my skin is clean and no residue of dirt or makeup.

So as you see I really do not use a lot of products for my face or body but I don’t really think you need to use a lot of stuff on your skin, you just have to find what works for you and stick to it and your skin will thank you for it.

So what product do you swear by? let me know.

ACCESSORIES – JEWELLERY

(POST NOT SPONSORED IN ANY WAY)

Hey guys hope you are all well, the winter season has definitely kicked in and the hibernation has kicked in too lol (winter just sucks!). So recently I have been looking at items on the AliExpress app and I found quite a few things I wanted to buy but, you hear a lot of people saying that these kind of sites are scams and what you order is not what you get and you might not actually get the item you paid for. So I decided to do my own research and I came upon a post about how to find out if the sellers (on AliExpress) you want to buy from are  genuine and how to tell that the are legit.

The post talked about how to find certified paperwork to prove they are real, the ratings of customers, checking if the sellers website is real, checking pictures of the warehouse etc. The post was really helpfully, so I bit the bullet and decided to order some jewellery which wasn’t expensive just in case I got scammed.

Now if you have ever looked at websites like Aliexpress, you will see that their stuff looks so nice and cute you just want to get everything but you have to remember that their dress sizes are so different to the rest of the world ( hence why I chose to buy jewellery). But here are some of the items I bought which I think are just too cute!

These are flower earings, they had other colours but I chose these two. I have never really seen flower earings like these so I had to get them. I think they are quite unique.

So though I dont wear necklaces a lot i had to pick these up. The bottle and the bird and branch necklaces are just adorable! they are just different and I like that about them. They look like they are telling a story which is beautiful.

This one is a necklace pendant. When I saw it on the site it  was on a necklace and when it came it was without one which I don’t mind. The pink colour makes it so cute and it stands out, it also has a silver stone for a leaf which adds glam to it.

This is one of the cutest broaches I have seen in a while. The blue is just stunning, its so girly and so me. I don’t actually have any broaches because when I would see some they looked tacky and not my style but this one was right up my street.

img_1719

Ok guys lets take a moment for these………………… isn’t this the most adorable jewellery? I cant get over how cute they are. These are fox earing studs which came in lots of different colours but i chose this one. I really cant wait to wear these! ekk lol

img_1722

So all items I bought looked exactly as on the website which am pleased about and I think I will be buying more jewellery from this website because they really do have some unique jewellery items.

ACCESSORIES – CHOKER NECKLACES

I am not a massive fan of necklaces and I really don’t wear them. Being that I get heat rash in summer I don’t wear them as they irritate my neck and in winter they are cold lol (I know am weird). But I have found a necklace that I absolutely LOVE! and its comfortable on my skin  what ever season. So Chokers are my best friends right now (though my partner don’t like their name).

img_1630

I have always thought how do they breath? ain’t it too tight?( I know stupid) but since it is the IT jewellery accessory I thought let me give it a try and boy I have not stopped buying them lol. They come in different colours as well as sizes and style which give you versatility. I love them.
