Dream Cream

My revision cards are just happily sitting behind in this photo whilst this pot of dream cream from Lush takes centre stage. Considering its Lush's number product, as stated on the lid, I am surprised that I'd never heard of it before now. It was only recently that me and my bestie decided to do a bit of shopping after gym and this meant a quick pop into Lush. Many of you may or may not know that I have quite bad eczema which is flared up by stress. Now with exams coming up and having stressful things happening within my family, my eczema is getting increasingly difficult to control untilll.... Molly suggested to me that this cream actually helps soothe the skin. I thought that I may as well have a go because the doctors steroid creams barely seem to touch the surface.

I must admit this cream is good! Actually its so good that it puts my eczema creams to shame. I wouldn't just recommend this product to people who have skin problems like eczema, I would recommend it to a wide range of people for when your skin needs a quick boost in the day. I find it smells of lavender, rose, oats and a hint of cocoa butter which are all the main ingredients in the product. Its not a heavy cream which for me I love and it soaks into the skin gently and softly. For 240g its £11.95 but don't be put of by the price as a little goes a long way! 

Have you used this product before? Let me know what you think!

Body Shop Hand Creams

The body shop has always been my go-to place when I want fruity or just in general amazing smelling products, mainly shower gel and their perfumes! When I went in there the other day however, when coincidentally buying a perfume, I for some reason needed to spend over a certain amount to claim something that I can't remember - I know, I'm so helpful at times. Back to it, these cute little 30ml hand creams were just sitting there waiting for me to pick them! I bought one of them for my sister and kept the other two for me. I decided to buy Pink Grapefruit, Mango and Coconut as they were my favourite smells and gave the coconut one to my sister. 

There is a slight colour change between the 3 however, my camera doesn't show it very well. The creams are all very well fragranced and are so light on the skin. If there is one thing I hate, its heavy hand creams. Ones that don't sink into the skin properly or feel greasy makes me despise them and thankfully the Body Shop ones are the complete opposite. If you've ever tried their sorbet range, it has a similar lightness to them and as always within the body shop, they never fail on their scents. 

They are the perfect size to also put in your handbag and keep topping up whenever your hands feel that they need it. These come in at £3.50 each and I would recommend them to anyone as they are simply perfect. If anyone has tried them, I would love to know what you think so leave a comment below!

Feeling 70's with New Look

Feeling 70's

The 70's style is a very key trend this S/S season for fashion. We must have all seen the picture of Cara Delevingne on the runway modelling that gorgeous outfit from Saint Laurent. Along with many other trends, the 70's style has never appeared much in my wardrobe and to be honest, I thought it never would. I have however, owned plenty of denim jackets so I was on trend somewhere. All of the above items are from New Look (price list at the bottom of this post) and they have stunning pieces in at the moment that are bang on trend.

What I particularly love about this outfit is the way it brings the 70's to the modern day life we are living in now. Now I watch Homes Under the Hammer and if the wallpaper and room designs in the 70's are anything to go by... I would absolutely hate their fashion. But, that's probably not the best thing to base it on, right? Anyway, the tunic style dress has a classic 70's pattern and the platforms on the shoes give it that added 70's feeling - Maybe not so much in the dress sense of Abba! 

Denim Jacket - £19.99 // Earrings - £4.99 // Tunic Dress - £22.99 // Hat - £14.99 // Sunglasses - £5.99 // Shoes - £24.99

Bristol S/S 2015 Fashion Show

I used to go to Bristol Fashion shows all the time but around 2 years ago for some reason I stopped. However, I really don't know why I didn't start to get back into things sooner! With BFW (Bristol Fashion Week) its not just about the hot male models that walk down that runway time after time. Instead, clothes mean more to me now then they did around 2 years ago. I am becoming more and more interested in fashion with each passing day, and if you told me this 10 years ago to my tomboy stage... I never would have believed you. 

Along with the clothes and the hot models, they like to incorporate good music and themes. The theme for this S/S season was holidays and conveniently was made around Bristol Airport with different holiday locations alongside the clothing. Some of the key trends that will definitely be coming to you this S/S are: Denim, Monochrome, Pastels, 70s Boho and Bold and Bright clothing. They really emphasised on the 70's look so make sure you have some florals and flares in your wardrobe this season. 

Mark Heyes and the gorgeous Lucy Watson from Made In Chelsea presented the show and couldn't have done a better job. Along with the amazing clothes and presenters we got a lovely goody bag, which unfortunately contained coconut water (yuck!), with lots of promotions and offers to use for shopping at the Mall Cribbs Causeway. I went with my sister Paige and it was a lovely trip out - We definitely needed it!

Atomic Rose

This is my ultimate shade for the up coming spring and summer. Rimmel London's apocalips has always been a product that I've loved and since they have brought out the Matte range as well, I have forever been in love. I could go on an on about the range however, today's post is featuring only one shade - Atomic Rose. 

This shade is about the 6th one I have and it has various competition from the lipsticks. It's not like a lip gloss in any shape or form. It's highly pigmented and the key point here is that your hair doesn't get stuck in it when the wind blows. This peachy/coral shade to atomic rose is such a light fun colour and because its a matte finish it doesn't give that wet look like a lip gloss can. 

As you can see, the brush is slanted and has a well in the middle of the brush. This helps with easy application because the slant helps you get into the natural shape of your lips and the well provides the right amount of product you need for your lips so it applies evenly. The brush is also smooth so application feels flawless.

And the photo above is what it looks like on my lips! I think it matches very well with the coral strips on my top! It is such a perfect shade for spring and is long lasted on the lip as it 'stains' the lips with the pigment. I am always highly impressed with the apocalips and would always recommend them.
