BB Cream!

Garnier miracle skin perfecter BB. RRP £7.49
001. So... my first ever product review! I am more in to my fashion than beauty but not to say i don't have an interest in it, i like to try new products and see what works for me! My friend Sophie is a product fanatic and will always give me a hand when investing in new purchases, shes like my guru!

002. I seem to get very dry skin which unfortunately has been playing up a lot lately, my foundation seemed to be doing no good at all (even though supposedly for dry skin) so i ditched that until i can find a better one. I have heard a lot about the Garnier BB cream so decided to give it a try, it seemed to be exactly what i needed while in the middle of foundations and i had hoped the moisturiser would help my skin. Garnier claims it will help in 5 ways;
1. Hydrates for 24hrs
2. Evens tone
3. Corrects blemishes
4. Boosts healthy glow
5. UV Protection SPF 15

003. I can honestly say my skin is much better now i have started using this and got rid of my foundation, it is very light on the skin and leaves a nice dewy effect. The tone on my skin has always been relatively even so i haven't concentrated on the changes of that too much i have also not seen many changes to blemishes. 

004. Overall i think the BB cream is perfect if you like the look of low coverage it is light and blends in very well, it is ideal for everyday use and also gives your skin a chance to breath. One downfall i would have is there are only two shades light and medium, i purchased the light and it went well with my skin but for someone that has a paler complexion i think would find it too dark.

The Weeknd.

001. The first few pictures are of an outfit i wore the other day to work, the photos don't really do it justice (or me) but i really did like it especially as it was a random chuck on. I had been itching to wear this Primark bargain and as soon as i saw the sun out i jumped at the opportunity! Unfortunately my only source of camera at the moment is an iPhone boo :(, currently saving to get an SLR then i can go snap happy!

002. The other two photos are of an outfit i wore out the other night, again not the best but you can get the idea. I got these red jeans on my Topshop uniform a few weeks back i was a bit hesitant at first thinking they would be hard to pair tops and shoes with but i have been proven wrong, they are perfect to brighten up an outfit! The last photo is my new "must have" i have been pining over one of these tops for ages now and then always seem to be sold out *sigh*.

003. Last but not least is the explanation of my miss spelt title, it is in fact in dedication of my new favourite artist The Weeknd. I have been listening to him for a while now and im hooked, obsessed, gripped, captivated, fixated you name it!

Ye ole Margate.

- Birthday card - Pretty tea sets - Tea with my mummy dear - Tea and cup cakes - Cupcake - Boutique - Potential buy - Jewellery - Primark shirt - Primark top - Baby book - Snacks with my cousin - 

001. Had a random trip to Margate today with my mum cousin and her little one, Margate has been known as a dump for  long time but certain parts are really starting to pick up! There are some lovely nicknack shops and a few vinatge clothes shops. My favourite place is the cup cake shop (obviously), there are so many to choose from and some lovely little bits you can buy from there.

002. I didn't end up buying the playsuit in the end, was umming over it so decided to think about it. I fell in love with the top half but wasn't to keen on the design on the shorts, wanted to just cut them off!

003. I did buy these two tops from Primark, the shirt im still undecided if i am keeping but the white top i fell in love with! For £10 i couldn't resist, with the amount you would pay in other stores and the summer coming up i couldn't say no.

Wednesday wish list.

Topshop sunglasses

Topshop Bralet
Urban outfitters necklace
Asos dress

001. Home from work at a stupid time once again so doing the doing the usual online browsing before i finally sleep. I have come across some its and bobs i think are my new must haves.... my bank account will not agree! I have had my eye on this Topshop bra let for a while now, i have been a bit hesitant to order it as i find the "boob" sections can come up very small! I love the detail on it and think it would look perfect with some high waited shorts in the summer!

002. This Urban Outfitters necklace just caught my eye because of the elephant! They are my favourite animal, i would never normally go as far as wearing elephant jewellery but i think this one doesn't look too tacky!

First ever blog post.... i thought it about time i start a blog full of all my fashion obsessions and rambles. It's pre bank holiday sunday so very tired and very warn out but it was an amazing weekend with some of my favourite people. I have been look for one of these skirts for a while but they always seem to sell out, came across one in new look for the bargain price of £20!
