The weather is certainly having trouble making its mind up lately, am I right?

I have worn everything from Jumpers to bikinis this month and my wardrobe has been slightly confused with what temperature it should be! I have been loving all the spring fashion trends this year already so I thought I would show you some of my favourite outfits and beauty essentials so far.

For those of you who don’t know, I live in Wales and it is notoriously known for wet and windy weather (with last summer being an exception). I have clothes for every single weather event but I have never worn a woolly pullover and a swimsuit in the same week!

When we did have a 24 degree day, It was over Easter weekend and I was going to a family lunch. I wore this beautiful bright yellow tea dress from Primark and paired it with my white sliders.

It is such a stunning colour and was very lightweight and cool for sitting in the garden. I picked this dress up last year for £5 in the sale and I am so glad I did.

Dress: Primark – £5

Sliders: Primark – £6

Hair clips: Asda – £4

Hat: Dorothy Perkins – £16

These pretty hair clips are everywhere at the moment! They remind me of a classic  Chanel look that would look great on long and short hair. I picked mine up from George at Asda for £4 each and they are gorgeous! You can actually find my picture over on the George for Asda instagram page, they liked it that much they wanted to share it themselves!

This hat is from Dorothy Perkins, I bought it years ago and I just love the colour, it goes with everything and makes any outfit look so glamorous.

I have been loving super bright pigmented eye shadows lately. My sister very kindly bought me a few goodies from Colourpop, including this gorgeous super shock shadow. It is so pigmented and a little goes a long long way! It looks phenomenal in the sunlight and I look just like a giant piece of glorious glitter – I love it.

This was a super quick post to show you what I have been loving lately, but keep posted for something very exciting in the next few days from one of my favourite brands – You will love it!

Good afternoon beauties!

Exciting news! 

I have started a summer series!

At the moment in Wales, the weather is not particularly great so this series is a bit of wishful thinking!

I have to admit, I have done quite a few posts already so get ready with a cup of tea and a biscuit or two for the lovely reads that follow today…

I don’t know about you guys, but secretly I love Camping!

Im not afraid of a bit of mud and some rain, but I have to admit, I like to look good whilst im in my wellies!

So this first edition will feature an easy makeup and OOTD to show you what I will be wearing when I go Camping/ Glamping this summer.

 You dolls ready?…

So these are all of the products that I used to create this super easy look. 

When I go camping, I like to pack as lightly as possible so these items are perfect!

IMG_2049

To start, I decided to use a bb cream (this one is from Etude House) as it has an SPF and moisturiser all combined.

It creates a flawless and simple base for my skin without leaving me feeling cakey.

Gold stars for anyone who noticed my dog Honey in the background….

To blend in my foundation, I used my Real Techniques foundation brush, which I unbelievably love.

IMG_2053

To add a lovely rosy and natural glow to my cheeks, I used my fave Ted Baker blush which is so delicate and pretty…

It also comes with a handy little mirror… Win WIn Win.

Again, I used my Real Techniques fluffy blush brush to apply the colour to my cheeks and cheekbones.

If you havn’t felt how soft this brush is, imagine lovely soft candy floss,

it is perfect….

This step is optional, but this is generally part of my daily routine anyway.

I’m using my eyebrow pencil that was a £1 from Primark  – Bargain.

It gives a lovely delicate colour and has a wax end to help keep my brows in place all day long.

And for the price…

I bought 4… oops.

IMG_2060

So im in a tent….

I don’t really want to be messing around with a ton of different tools and products, so the easiest way to add that little bit extra is by using a volumising mascara.

IMG_2061

This mascara by Bourjois is a god send.

It lifts my lashes and makes them look incredible in 2 minutes.

Plus… No flaking!

IMG_2062

Lastly, for a natural shine I decided to add some pretty pink gloss by Benefit to add a hint of colour to my lips.

This small size tube is ideal and fits into my bag or pocket!

Easy for on the go kissable lips.

As for the outfit, comfort wins for me every time.

I love these high waisted shorts from New Look, so I can hopefully get tanned legs… (I doubt it)

This sailor striped crop top is from Primark and is super comfy and of course you need to have a rucksack to hold that makeup bag etc….

Mine, amazingly, is from Amazon with a striped and lace look.

IMG_2071

Rapunzel let down your hair!

Unfortunately my plait is not that long….

But I love a simple hairstyle that looks pretty and that I can keep off my face.

IMG_2072

And that my friends, is the finished look.

Simple, easy and perfect for those summer days camping with your friends.

Let me know what you beauts think in the comments below,

I would love to know what your Camping essentials are!

Dont forget you can keep up to date with me on my social media and Bloglovin!

Speak to you all later this afternoon for the next edition in my summer series.

Love C
