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.

Yellow tea dress from primark

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!

April PRIMARK haul – Summer styles +Try on |BeautyandShe

Beauty, fashion

img_1053-3

Hi everyone!

Guess where I have been….

Only my ultimate fave place ever – Primark.

I have been loving Primark’s Instagram lately, I have had so much inspiration from them I just had to go and see for myself.

It is April, which basically means it is nearly Summer and I need to get my Summer wardrobe sorted.

My style for this summer is going to be smart and classic yet casual… if that makes any sense. I love just simple outfits that look timeless and also comfortable!

The pieces I picked up today are definitely just that.

Linen blazer and high waisted shorts set from primark

When I saw this two piece, I fell in love. This is a linen blazer and shorts set that is the most comfortable thing ever. It’s a very lightweight material that will be perfect in hotter weather and will go with everything. The shorts are paperbag style with a gorgeous belt detail that cinches me in at the best part of my waist. I paired mine with heels but imagine this outfit with brown sandals too – Perfection.

Linen blazer and high waisted shorts set from primark

Blazer: £17

Shorts: £10

Pastel pink knee length dress with a tie waist from primark

I’m getting Audrey Hepburn vibes in this beautiful dress – It is so flattering and again, such a classic style. I love the belt which really brings the dress together and the button are a nice contrast. It has two slits along the sides which I like and the neckline is absolutely perfect – not too plungy!

Dress: £12

I’m usually a bikini girl but this swimsuit had me weak at the knees. I think I just love anything with a belt – even swimwear! This stunning khaki swimsuit is perfect for covering up (a little bit). The material is such high quality, not thin and shiny which I hate and it is so so comfortable.

56393240_2173998286027442_8959807279926870016_n

Swimsuit: £12

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

They call me mellow yellow… I LOVE THIS SWIMSUIT. It was another one of those “I need that” moments when I knew I had to have it. Again with the belt thing, the colour is super flattering and I think will be for all skin tones and the fit is spot on. I am a size 10 and this fits like a dream.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Swimsuit: £12

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This bikini is so so pretty. Its such a chic colour and is ridiculously comfortable. The bottoms are a little bit more cheeky but I love it! It has pretty wood design detailing on the top and bottoms and I like to wear mine a little bit more high waisted.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Bikini top: £6

Bikini bottoms: £4

A little bit bolder than I usually go for but these sunnies just make me happy! It’s funny how a different shape of glasses can change your outfit so much.

Black: £3

Brown: £2

If I could be tanned, bronzy and glowy all year round, I would be so happy. I picked up the Glow Intensity shimmer spray for those summer days where I want to look like a Victoria’s Secret Angel. I also picked up this new mascara which is a dupe for Too Faced’s “Better than sex” mascara – I have heard great things so I will give it a good go!

Shimmer spray: £4

Mascara: £3

And that guys is everything I picked up for the start of my Summer wardrobe! I was really wise and didn’t purchase everything I saw, only the staple pieces that will look great for my summer wardrobe.

The ‘beauty-ful’ Christmas Gift guide 2018

Beauty

Well, Christmas is almost here again and I can’t wait.

There is nothing I love more than spending this special time with family and friends, not to mention all of the festive food and drink… there is usually a lot of that.

When people ask me what I would like for Christmas, I usually say “I don’t need anything”- This is because it’s true. I’m truly content with just spending time with loved ones, enjoying the festivities and eating my weight in turkey and stuffing…

However – my passion for all things beauty gets me intrigued and excited for all the new Christmas makeup, skincare and beauty products there are this time of year. 

So I have created this handy-dandy gift guide that includes some of my favourite beauty gifts to date. I hope you find some inspiration for those last minute purchases and enjoy looking at some of my ultimate faves.

Anything Charlotte Tilbury – Lipstick ‘Hepburn Honey’

A little bit of luxury – even if it is just a lipstick – I adore everything about the Tilbury brand from the packaging to product, if your looking for that special gift for a special someone, you can’t go wrong.

Benefit Christmas Gimme Some Sugar gift set

The benefit gift sets are so adorable this year. This one includes all my faves and are all FULL SIZED. Plus the cake tin it comes is reuseable and would look so ‘sweet’ on a vanity – I’m good with puns..

Bomb Cosmetics Let it Snow Gift set

My favourite thing to do in Winter is to relax in a hot bath filled with bubbles, and bath bombs are just pure heaven. Im alway grateful for a bathbomb any time of year!

Real Techniques everyday essential brush set

This was my first EVER brush set and I still have it to this day. Granted its been a few years but they are a fantastic set for everyday use.

A Bath Caddy (These are everything)

So I recently bought myself a bath caddy and it is a serious game changer. I can now have a bath alongside a glass of wine placed elegantly in front of me. What more could you want…

 

Stila 3D Dazzle and Glow liquid eyeshadow trio

Christmas time is the time to sparkle and shine – I love Stila shadows, these ones are so long lasting and make me look just like a Christmas fairy.

Urban Decay Naked Cherry palette 

This palette is what dreams are made of. Look at these gorgeous red and pink shades. If you buy any girl this palette they will be sure to love you for ever and ever and ever.

Gucci Bloom Eau De Parfum

I love a pretty bottle as much as the next girl but with this gorgeous scent too, it’s a match made in heaven or should I say…flowers.

Too Faced – Under the Kissletoe collection

This Christmas collection of liquid lipsticks is ideal for keeping in your handbag on the go – They are also long lasting which means you can eat Christmas dinner with a perfect pout.

Pixi Glow Tonic 

This toner tones, conditions and brightens your skin all in one bottle giving you that glowing goddess look just in time for Christmas.

Jo Malone Christmas Cracker collection

This is an absolute steal (for Jo Malone) – You get perfume, hand wash and body creme with their signature scents that are bound to leave you smelling absolutely delicious.

And that’s just to name a few! These are some of my favourit beauty presents and stocking fillers for 2018 that I think would please anyone. There are so many fantastic beauty buys this year and I would love to know your favourites too, let me know in the comments below!

Stay posted for some more Christmas gift guides as we make our way through to December over the next few days.

Happy Holidays!

LUSH Christmas Event + Christmas HAUL

Uncategorized

img_1053-4

 

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

Im a true season girl, I love Autumn, I love Winter but of course CHRISTMAS is so magical and I’m already in the festive spirit.

I was invited to the LUSH Christmas Event at my local LUSH store and I jumped at the chance! I have been shopping at LUSH for as long as I can remember and their products are AMAZING! They pride themselves in providing cruelty free products and fight against animal testing which I absolutely LOVE.

If you have never seen or smelt any of the LUSH products then you are seriously missing out. They are constantly coming up with new ideas for products and get better and better each year.

So grab a cup of tea and have a wander with me through LUSH at Christmas – I promise you will be left feeling festive – CLICK HERE.

 

 

 

This year is no exception with their Christmas range, it is stunning. So I was greeted by the team and a refreshing welcome drink to sip as I wandered through the gorgeous scents. I had the chance to be helped by a lovely girl called Eman (Im so sorry if thats misspelled!) who explained every single product that caught my eye.. and there was a lot.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I had so many demonstrations of all the products I wanted to view and got to try a good few! Ten minutes in and I was already feeling pampered.

 

I was lucky enough to be able to make my own Christmas facial cleanser called Buche De Noel which has ground almonds, cranberries, mandarin and of course BRANDY – You have to have a tipple at Christmas…

_SAM1934.JPG

It was so lovely being able to make it myself and see EXACTLY what goes in to my skincare products plus it was so much FUN!

I had a full tour of the SPA, yes you heard me right, SPA! It was truly so beautiful. Its themed just like an old farm style kitchen with reclaimed train tracks and a lot of wood panelling. There was candles everywhere and I had a chat about all the spa experiences on offer.

I was able to have a wonderful hand and arm massage by Jordan who explained about all the oils that work wonders for the skin – I could of stayed there all evening, it was so relaxing.

I finished off my evening by sampling some of the makeup which is such high quality and I loved being able to try anything and everything – my hands were very glittery after this. Of course I had to treat myself to a couple of things didn’t I? Maybe more than a couple…So with my bag full of goodies I left feeling truly relaxed and ready for the festive season ahead.

I’m MARRIED!! + AUTUMN PRIMARK HAUL |BeautyandShe

Uncategorized

img_1053-4

 

Guys!

I am back! Well hasn’t it been a while!

If you don’t already know, I recently got married to the love of my life (cheesey) and I have not long got back from our honeymoon.

I won’t bore you too much now (I will write an ENTIRE blog post about our wedding) but we truly had the most incredible wedding day.

I’ve returned from 35 degree heat to true autumn back here in Wales so I knew instantly that Primark was calling my name. I follow them in IG and constantly follow autumn updates and trends so I had a bit of an idea what I wanted.

The store was full of autumn colours, reds, browns, greens, oranges and I couldn’t wait to dive right in (not literally, although some people do). As I write this I realise most of the items I bought are monochrome and not very autumn inspired at all…. Ahh well.

 

Ofcourse I have uploaded a haul to my YT channel which you can find here.

 

 

 

Or if you prefer the traditional method of photography then look no further…

Beauty, Makeup, Uncategorized

img_1053-4

I LOVE LIPSTICKS.

There, I’ve said it. I have an absolute obsession.

Do you guys have a staple makeup piece that your obsessed with? Well you know mine.

I also love reading a good lipstick swatch post as it really shows you product colour and texture before you take the plunge to purchase.

And that is exactly what I am going to do today.

So you all know Rimmel London – one of the most popular, good quality and affordable brands in the UK?

I have the brand NEW STAY SATIN LIQUID LIP range to show you guys and I am beyond excited. When I first read up on these, I couldn’t wait.

What more do you want: Pigmentation, long lasting, lightweight, 14 shade, GORGEOUS?!!!

This range has it all. I have eight bright and beautiful colours swatched for you so take a look and see what you think!

Make sure you subscribe to my Youtube Channel so you don’t miss out – click HERE or below:

 

 

 

The Swatches:

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Shade: As If?

A gorgeous nude shade that glided on effortlessly, the lightest shade in my collection. Not crumbly at all and looks very subtle.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Shade: Shoulder Pads

This is my FAVOURITE shade – it is a very pretty pink/nude that will go well with everything!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Shade: Scrunchie

I love this bright pop on colour – its is such a beautiful summer shade that I will definitely be wearing this month.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Shade: Obsession

This one was OK, not really my thing but did look pretty on! Perhaps with a tan it will look even better.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Shade: Redical

How gorgeous is this classic red shade? The good thing about this colour is that it makes your teeth look so white!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Shade: For Sure

Seriously not my thing. It was very sheer and moved around alot. The formula is very different from the others and I look like an alien.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Shade: Atomic

Same with this one – It kind of makes me look like ive got the flu or im very cold – did not blend well either.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Shade: Glam Rock

I don’t hate the colour but again the formula was all wrong, super streaky and thin, it was sliding everywhere and got all over my teeth!

 

In all, a very good range from what I tried! The nude shade will always be my favourite but it is nice to try something a bit brighter every now and again!

Which shade is your favourite? Let me know in the comments below!

Everything 5 Pounds Haul Try on | + SECRET DISCOUNT CODE |Beautyandshe

Uncategorized

img_1053-4

You know me guys, I LOVE a bargain.

Today I bring to you, the haul of ALL hauls from bargain heaven Everything5pounds.com!

If you haven’t heard of it E5P before then you are seriously missing out! As the name suggests everything and I mean EVERYTHING is five pounds. Im talking about dresses, boots, jeans, heels, jackets, coats…… everything.

If you guys haven’t seen my previous HAUL VIDEO a few months ago then make sure you check it out HERE!

So when E5P got in touch with me asking if I would like to be sent some products, I jumped at the chance as I know how good their range is.

When I first discovered the website many many months ago, I was a bit sceptical at first as it is very cheap price wise and that does make you question the quality and range.

HOWEVER! I risked it for a biscuit and a few months ago splurged on some summer essentials for my wardrobe. I was so shocked at how good the quality of the materials and products were it was crazy! How can something so cheap be so good – Well it can!

So as I said I was super happy when they got in contact for me to show you guys how GREAT and AFFORDABLE this company is!

I was able to select four gorgeous items of my choice and I thought that since it is now winter I should probably be sensible and get some jumpers or jackets or something that will keep me warm! (Im getting old aren’t I?)

Ready to see my beautiful bargains??

 

24140238_10156707875644179_1656401925_o

So the first thing that caught my eye were these boots. Now… me and boots are like… Ant and Dec, Cookies and Milk… we just go together. So these faux suede beige ankle boots are most definitely the FAVE item from this haul. The quality as you can see is beautiful. Im a size 5 and they fit perfectly! I think with jeans tucked in and a leather jacket, they will look STUNNING! Well were off to a good start right……

 

24169641_10156707875624179_843514443_o

Next up is this super chunky cowl neck jumper. I saw this on the model and just thought how cosy is this?! I love the colours as it will go with everything but the quality of the fabric on this one guys is amazing! It kept me so warm and looks beautiful with a pair of jeans and boots.

24139792_10156707875614179_452888163_o

Party Party Party! Gold is the colour of the season and when glitter is added… well… Its just even more beautiful! This stunning gold glitter ruffle top is ideal for those christmas/ NYE parties where you want to be a bit more casual but still sparkle and shine. I tried this also tucked in high waisted jeans and it looks gorgeous. I was worried that the material would be too thin and see through but it is fully lined and looks incredible!

24169781_10156707875629179_1259178169_o

The last item I chose, I desperately needed in my wardrobe as I am seriously lacking in jumper dresses.  This high roll neck jumper dress is very thick and super soft. It has a side split for detail so if worn in winter, tights would be a good option. Paired with boots (again) this is a dream and is ideal for casual days out or even evenings too!

Well, what do you think? Pretty darn good right? I highly recommend checking these guys out guys if your looking for last minute gifts or just a little something for yourself too!

PLUS, the moment you’ve all been waiting for! I have also got a DISCOUNT CODE for an extra 5% off guys! Every little helps right???
