Hi everyone, hope your all well! I'm so sorry for the lack of posts at the moment. I have no excuse other than school starting again and taking up all of my time! However, I do want to attempt to stay on top of blogging consistently as its one of my favourite things do to! Can you believe that I came back from my holiday over a month ago and I'm only just getting round to posting this outfit post?! 

Anyway, if you've been following my blog for a while you'll know I brought these trousers last year and also featured them in a holiday outfit post. However, I couldn't resist not giving them another mention this year as they are my absolute favourite trousers ever. Its a shame I only ever wear them on holiday, I need to get more use out of them!

This outfit is pretty much the same as last year. However, I changed up my lace bralet for this knitted halter-neck one instead. Its so comfortable and is really flattering. I paired the trousers with the black flip flops which kept this look really simple.

Bralet- Topshop
Trousers- Topshop
Lipstick- MAC 'Ruby woo' (applied the tiniest amount)

Hi everyone, hope you're all well. I officially started year 13 this week. How crazy. I have 1 year of school left and then I'm done -obviously besides uni and work but you know, still cray. I'm not going to lie trying to get out of bed on wednesday morning when I went back to school was difficult. I definitely pressed the snooze button a few too many times.

If you've been a longer follower of my blog you'll know I've worked with a brand previously called 'Salcura'. Salcura skincare is a brand based in the UK and create a variety of different skincare for dry skin problems and acne. They also use all natural ingredients which is a bonus. I had previously tried out the acne range which I loved, so when they contacted me asking if I would like to try out some skincare for dry skin I was super excited. 

The first product I am going to talk about is the 'Bioskin zeoderm face and body lotion*' This was my favourite product that I received. I used this when I came back from my holiday in attempt to keep my skin hydrated and try and prolong my tan. This stuff is fab, its so hydrating. What I like most about it is that it absorbs so quickly into the skin and doesn't leave you feeling sticky. This has a lovely scent, however, it is quite strong and I can't quite think of what it reminds me of. Don't you hate it when that happens? I've been using this on my elbows and knees which get particularly dry and I have noticed a big difference! The skin is much softer, smoother and generally more hydrated and less irritated. 

The next product I'm going to talk about is the 'Bioskin facial cleanser*' Like mentioned above the bioskin range is focused on dry skin types and soothing irritated skin. This sounded great, as although I don't have overly dry skin, it does get dehydrated from all of the spot lotions and creams I use. I have been testing this out for a few weeks now and I do like it when my skin is feeling particularly sore or irritated. This cleanser has a gel consistency which applies nicely onto the skin. The colour of this is a bright orange colour which I was surprised to find out, I wasn't expecting it! The scent is really nice and for some reason reminds me of mangos? Overall this is a lovely cleanser, however, I don't think I would use it everyday. I know it will be more suitable for  my skin type in the colder months as it will really work to soothe the skin form the harsh wind and cold weather. 

The last product is the 'Bioskin DermaSpray*' This spray is used to moisturise, hydrate and reduce skin redness. The purpose behind this is that you spray it onto your body and then massage it into the skin. I really like the concept of this product and the fact you can spray it onto your body -perfect for awkward areas like your elbows or shoulders. This product is a lot lighter in consistency compared to the face and body lotion but does a great job at soothing dry skin and keeping it hydrated. I think this is perfect for travelling and will definitely come in handy!

Hi everyone, hope you're all well! I can't believe I only have a few days of my holiday left and then I start school again next week - It's gone way to quickly! I'm not going to lie my holiday outfit series hasn't been very successful, either I've forgotten to take pictures of my outfits or the photos taken haven't been very good. This being said I'm still going to try and take some photos these last few days of my holiday and see what I can do and if I can salvage any of the others. 

I recently brought this black midi dress which I am wearing from H&M. I haven't really been keen on body con dresses because I personally find them really unflattering on myself, either being way to tight for my liking or too long. However this midi seemed to fit perfectly. Because this style of the dress is a midi length I couldn't really go wrong with it being too long. The material is a t-shirt cotton type of material, therefore, is really comfortable and flattering. 

Dress - H&M
Shoes -  (not shown) Havaianas
Rings - Pandora
Bracelet - Pandora
Lipstick - Mixture of MAC 'Russian Red' + 'Ruby Woo'

I chose to pair this dress with some plain black flip flops, keeping the outfit super comfy and casual. However, this could also easily be styled more dressy and put together by adding some heels. It's so versatile and I know I will get a lot of wear out of this dress when I get back home!

Thank you for reading my blog, be sure to follow! What do you think of this style dress?

Hi everyone, hope you're all well. As you're reading this I am on holiday! *squeels* It feels like forever since I last went away, even though, it was only last year. I actually really like flying (in a plane, obviously) and when I get to the airport I am always straight to duty-free, literally I am like magnet. Every year when I'm at the airport I like to by  perfume, not sure why. I guess its become some sort of a tradition.

If you know me, you'll know I'm obsessed with Marc Jacob fragrances, I literally have and love all of them! I don't know if it's the super cute packaging or the lovely, fresh and fruity scents. Either way, I picked up another one of his limited edition 'Daisy' scents. I really like the fact he brings out a limited edition version of this fragrance as I love the original! 

Like mentioned above, this comes in a same stye as the original perfume. However, the packaging is slightly different each time, this year the colours being pink and purple. I love the flowers on this perfume, they are so pretty!

The scent is pretty similar to others in this collection with a little twist. I'd say this is more fruity than others in previous collections which I love. It's a very sweet and pretty scent, which is perfect for summer. I love Marc Jacobs perfumes as they are so versatile, I love that I can wear them both during the daytime and the evening. This has been my go to scent throughout all of my holiday and I know I'll deffo still be using it when I get home, it's too nice not to!

Thank you for reading my blog be sure to follow on bloglovin' Whats your favourite perfume? My holiday outfits posts should hopefully be up soon, my brother is joining us on holiday at the weekend so he'll probably become my designated photographer when he arrives.

Hi everyone, hope you're well! If you know me, you'll know I am a literally a Lush addict! I love their products and how cute they look, as well as how well they work. Recently I decided to pick up a couple of products (which aren't bath bombs) to try out that I haven't used before. 

The first product was 'Ocean Salt' a face and body scrub. I'd been wanting to try this out for the longest amount of time due to the constant recommendations I had been getting from friends and sales assistants in store. The two main ingredients in this product: obviously, like the name would suggest, fine sea salt -This is where you get the scrub like texture perfect for when you exfoliate. The other ingredient is lime extracted in vodka. Now, this surprised me I didn't expect to see vodka in a face product. However, a sales assistant explained to me that this is an anti-bactieral element and therefore also makes this good for blemish prone skin. Along with these two main ingredients, avocado butter is also used to brighten and soften the skin.

I've used this a couple of times and I love it. The scent is amazing, you can really smell the mixture of vodka and lime. -Its quite a strong scent, so if you prefer something more subtle I do believe Lush have another body scrub you could try out. I like this scrub as you can use it on both face and body. I tried this out on my face and it really did exfoliate my skin, leaving it smooth and soft. However, due to the vodka it can be quite strong on the skin, so be sure to use a small amount when using it on your face. 

The other product I decided to try out was another 'Fresh Face Mask' I love face masks, they are certainly one of my favourite steps in my skincare routine. I went into store hoping to repurchase 'Mask of Magnanimity' but they were unfortunately sold out. Instead I decided to try out 'Cupcake' as it sounded perfect for my skin which has been quite oily recently.

Here you can see a stunning picture of myself modelling the face mask. *do excuse the marks on my top, it has become the hair dye and face mask top so it very stained, oops* The scent of this mask is beautiful and does indeed smell of chocolate. The formula is quite thick. However, applies easily onto the face. I'm not going to lie, I was a bit apprehensive about how well this would wash off due to the thick consistency and colour. Although, I was very happy to see it rinsed of nicely and was actually a lot quicker and easier than I had expected. 

After I had washed the product off, my face was left feeling smooth and cleansed. This mask was so gentle on the skin! If you suffer from sensitive skin, give this one a whirl!

Hi everyone, hope you're all well. One of my favourite things about summer is being able to change up my makeup and incorporating a lighter base and a lot of bronzer! I go on holiday at the end of August so I thought I'd show you what makeup I'm taking with me. 

Starting of with my base makeup, I knew I didn't want to take a foundation with me, instead I'm taking this new maybeline Dream Bronze BB. I think this will be perfect for providing a bit of coverage and bronzing up my skin. 


Benefit 'Porefessional' 
Maybeline Dream Bronze BB
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
Maybeline 'The Eraser' Concealer
Chanel Bronze Universal 
Mac Soft and Gentle Highlighter 

Onto my eye products I'll be taking. I never know what to take as I'm not particularly an eyeshadow gal. However, I recently started using the Maybeline Colour Tattoos and they've literally changed my life! They make eyeshadow application so much easier! I'm not sure if I'll take both of my Naked pallets yet though. 


Maybeline Colour Tattoo (On and On Bronze & Pink Gold)
Urban Decay Naked 2
Urban Decay Naked 3
Maybeline The Rocket waterproof mascara 

Finally, onto lipsticks. I'm not a massive lipstick person either to be honest, I don't find they suit me that much. However, that has changed since I discovered MAC 'Velvet Teddy' lipstick. My mum actually had this before the Kylie Jenner craze started and I finally brought my own after constantly borrowing hers.  I also think red lipsticks look amazing with a tan!

Products: Left to Right

MAC 'Ruby Woo'

Hope you enjoyed this post, I did one like this last year and I personally really enjoy being nosey and looking inside other peoples makeup bags. What makeup products do you take on holiday? What other lipsticks should I try out?

Hi everyone, hope you're all well and enjoying the summer holidays! Every year I'm lucky enough to go on a sunny holiday abroad, but I've never actually had a decent pair of sunglasses. I normally opt for some cheaper ones from Primark or Topshop - Which are generally pretty good and get the job done. However, this year since I've started working I thought I would actually by myself a pair of Raybans. I've been wanting some forever, but never knew what ones I would like and if they would suit me.

I went into a shop in my local shopping centre and tried on a few pairs in different colours and styles. I knew I liked the 'round' shaped/style but I didn't know what colour to get. (Who knew choosing sunglasses could be suck a difficult task?) In the end I opted for the original green/gold round sunglasses, which I adore!


Can we just talk about the beautiful leather packaging/case they come in, so pretty! Its really sturdy and safe which means I don't have to worry about them breaking in my handbag which is a constant mess. The only thing with buying one pair of these sunglasses is that I want to buy almost every colour, I'm obsessed with the copper pair! They look lovely on and are a lot more flattering on a lot of different types of face shapes which I didn't expect. -Now enjoy a very posy picture of me, in which my eyes are closed and you can hardly see the sunglasses. Great picture Lauren.

Overall, I love these sunglasses and I know I'm going to get so much wear out of them whilst on my holiday. Ive seen so many people and celebrities wearing this style of sunglasses recently, pretty sure Gigi Hadid posted a picture of her wearing them at some point, and if they're good enough for her, they're certainly good enough for me!
