Scarf

Spring is officially here, even though it may not look like it right now in London.  The sun is [should be] shining but there is still a slight breeze in the air.  For me, as someone that is always cold, I like to add a light scarf or necktie to my outfits to keep warm during the spring weather.  Here is some inspo I found on Pinterest.

Layered with a shirt, jumper and blazer.  This would be perfect for the office.
With sunnies and an off the shoulder jumper to show a little skin.
A silk scarf can dress up a more relaxed outfit.
Parisian vibes with a hat and sunnies.  I love the bold print against the black jumper.

How would you style a scarf for spring?

8 Affordable Skincare Products That Work

I feel like I've really got my skincare down at the moment.  I bought lots of new products a few months ago and after testing them out, my skin having a bit of a freak out at first and then getting a good routine in order I feel like I've found some great products that work for my skin, are cruelty free and affordable!



Mario Badescu Rose Water

I use this as a toner to hydrate my skin every morning.  It's so refreshing and particularly good if you've had a heavy night!

Superdrug Optimum Brightening Cream

This is a black cream that I've spoken about before.  It's not too heavy so a good one for the day before makeup but it has brightening properties in it to keep your skin glowing.




Body Shop Cleansing Oil

This is the camomile one and is so good at removing makeup.  I use it every night to start off with and it even removes studdon mascara.

Nip & Fab Glycolic Scrub

I've started to incorporate glycolic acid into my everyday skincare and I feel like it's improved my skin the most.  This product I use 2-3 times per week.

Pixi Toner

This also has glycolic acid it in and I will use it most days when I am not using the Nib & Fab scrub.




Superdrug Vitamin E eye cream

Such a great little cream and super affordable.  The best eye cream I've tried so far.

Superdrug Vitamin E facial oil

Now that I am getting older I've started to use a facial oil every night which scared me at first as I thought I would really break out but it's so nice for my dry skin.

Superdrug Naturally Radiant Overnight Mask

This is another product with glycolic acid in it so I will only use when not using the others as too much freaks my skin out.  It's a really cooling gel that you leave on and wash off in the AM.


Do you know any affordable skincare products that really work?

6 Of The Best Cruelty Free Beauty Products

I've been vegan for over a year now and about 8 months ago I decided I would also go cruelty free on all my beauty and skincare products too.  I had to do a lot of research and found it alarming how many brands still test on animals!  

One store that really works hard on supporting cruelty free products is Superdrug and they do a lot of different ranges within their skincare and makeup.  There are also some higher end brands that don't test on animals which I was really happy about.

Here are some of my favourites:



MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter

I have this in the gold shade and it's beauty.  Not too pidgmented but still enough to get that glow.  I use it everyone including as an eyeshadow.




Sleek Shimmer Blush

I've talked about this loads.  I have the shade rose gold and it's almost identical to Nars' cult orgasm blush for a fraction of the price.

Makeup Revolution Ultra Contour Palette

I bought this to try when contour palettes became all the rage and I haven't stopped using it since.  You get so many different shades, setting powders and highlighters for such a good price.

BareMinerals Complexion Rescue

This is such a quick and easy product, I even use my fingers to apply it.  I love it for the summer as it's non greasy and has SPF50.




Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer

I bought a mini size one of these to try out but it's actually lasted me about 6 months!  I'm definitely going to purchase a full size next time.

Urban Decay Naked Palette

This is one of the OG cult products.  There's not really much else to say about this!  If you don't know.. then you should..
