Spring Favourites

Hey guys! I haven’t done a favourites post since November of last year, a huge 7 months ago, as this year I decided that I’d do my ‘Snippets’ videos instead of monthly favourites posts. So since it has been so long, I thought I’d share some of my favourites that I’ve been loving throughout Spring.IMG_7712Maybelline’s Colour Show Nail Polish in ‘Dusty Rose’ | When Maybelline released their ‘Blushed Nudes’ collection, I knew that I was going to love almost the entirety of the nail polishes, because I’ve been adoring lighter and more muted tones on my nails lately. The brushes of these polishes are a good size, not quite as big as Rimmel’s, but not thin and difficult to use. I love this colour in particular because it’s so pretty, goes with any colour outfit, and perfectly matches my new LYDC bag!

Rimmel’s Brow This Way Brow Gel | At the start of this year I decided to step up my brow game, as I occasionally filled them in, but they never stayed looking how I wanted them to throughout the day, so I decided to try out a brow gel, and with this product, I enjoy doing my brows every. single. day. This product has also inspired me to keep on top of my brow game by shaping them, so that when I use this gel, they look exactly as I want them to. This gel keeps them put all day long, and is slightly tinted so I don’t even need to pencil them in before using this product.

Maybelline’s Lash Sensational Mascara | I know I’ve spoken about this mascara before, but I’ve been loving it again this year because it’s affordable, but really elongates and curls the lashes.IMG_7715Katy Perry’s Mad Potion Perfume | I recently got this perfume, and I’ve been wearing it every day since. I really feel like it’s light enough to be worn as a perfect Spring daytime perfume, but also sultry and deep enough to wear in the evenings. It’s a really unique but sweet scent, with the main accords of vanilla and peony.

MAC Lipstick in ‘Please Me’ | I had actually seen someone with similar colouring to myself wearing this lipstick, and it looked amazing, so naturally I decided to buy it. It’s a matte formula, but not like most matte lipsticks where it turns crumbly and just makes you want to lather your lips in lip balm. It’s surprisingly creamy, and a gorgeous medium pink shade, I’d recommend it to anyone with a fair to medium skin tone, as it’s not a distracting and overboard pink, it’s just really pretty and adds a touch of colour.IMG_7717Garnier’s Micellar Water | As I’ve been gradually growing my makeup collection, and therefore the amount of makeup I’ve been wearing daily, I often get to bed at the end of the day and can’t really motivate myself to get up and carry out my usual skincare routine, so I’ve been incredibly grateful to having this product (alongside a stack of cotton wool pads) right next to my bed. I can be half asleep, but I’ll always remember to take my makeup off with this handy and quick micellar water.

Rituals Miracle Balm | I’ve only just talked about this product to you guys, see that post HERE, but I’ve been loving this hand balm for a little while now, as it’s everything I’ve been looking for in a hand lotion, but haven’t found before.

John Frieda’s Frizz Ease Touch Up Creme | With dyeing my hair a fair few times this year already, I have seen something of a change in the condition of my hair, so I recently decided to improve my haircare routine, see a post on that HERE, but this product in particular has really been saving my hair on days when it is determined to be frizzy and kinky. This product acts as a leave in conditioner that you apply to dry and styled hair, working as a sort of moisturiser for the ends of your hair. I love applying it to my hair after blow drying it.


Those are all of the things that I’ve been loving this Spring, I hope you enjoyed this post!

Boutique Of Molly: Spring Fling

Hey guys! Now as many of you know by now, I love a good dress. I’ve loved wearing dresses for so long now that I can’t even express how much I love them, I just do.

So during a Twitter chat one night, you can imagine my absolute joy when Boutique of Molly contacted me, asking if I’d like to review some of their clothing.

I immediately dashed (can I say dashed? I clicked furiously) onto their site, and browsed through to see what they had to offer, and immediately fell in love with 2 dresses in particular. (Well ok I fell in love with about 5, but I didn’t want to test my luck.)

Boutique Of Molly is a really fun and unique brand, that aim to offer celebrity-inspired styles, at affordable highstreet prices. I personally love that brand new styles are added daily, so it’s fun to check out the site each day and see what new styles have been added!

So today I’m showing you guy the two gorgeous dresses that I was kind enough to receive!

ezgif.com-optimize‘Lilia’ Dress

As soon as I saw this dress, I knew that it had to be mine. It fits in with my girly style perfectly, and as we all know, if there is a skater style dress covered in flowers, I’ve got to have it.

However, I chose this dress because I thought that it is quite unique. I do have a lot of skater dresses with floral patterns on, but they are usually coloured dresses with a black floral print on, whereas this is a really bright and vibrant tulip pattern on a crisp white dress.

I also love the straps, as they split into two smaller spaghetti straps as they reach up to your shoulders, giving this dress a fun, flirty summer vibe.

I was really happy with the quality of this dress, as I think I’d gotten too used to how Primark and New Look dresses feel, so when I felt this dress, it felt like a nice high-end quality dress. It’s made of scuba-like material, meaning that you never need to iron it, and it sits beautifully when you’ve got it on.

A bodycon dress?! That I like?! Boutique of Molly have actually done it, and created a bodycon dress that I enjoy wearing, and feel comfortable in. Don’t get me wrong, not everyone is going to love this dress as I do think you’ve got to feel comfortable with it really hugging your curves.

It’s obviously a plunge neck dress, but with a magical metal insert in the V, that gives you a lot of hold, so you can feel confident wearing this dress without a bra. I tried wearing this dress with a strapless bra, but it was visible through the plunge, so I would recommend wearing it without one at all. Don’t worry, with the combination of this scuba material, and the V, you’ll be guaranteed support.

The straps are so thin and delicate that I think really adds to the luxury feel of this dress, and makes it perfect for summer events. It’s also quite a modest length, so you don’t need to worry about showing too much skin.

Both of these dresses feel amazing on, and I love them. They are definitely of a higher quality than any other dress I own (apart from my prom dress, ha!) but are still pretty and modest enough to wear casually.


I hope you guys enjoyed this post, and have a cheeky look through Boutique of Molly’s site, to see if there’s anything that you like, I can’t recommend them highly enough, shipping was so speedy, and the service was absolutely lovely.

Spring Must-Haves: Powder

Founded in 2009, and winning Fashion Accessory of the Year in 2013, there is no stopping the force that is Powder. They recently contacted me to ask me to select some of their spring products and create some outfits and a wish list, and I very eagerly accepted, for a multitude of reasons; their products are all very unique and suit my vintage-inspired style, and they sell everything at an affordable price! Their website is also just my style, and very easy to navigate, you could spend ages browsing through their designs.

So without further ado, here are 3 of their pieces that I have created into 3 styles!


outfit1

Casual-Chic | Here I have paired the Lola infinity scarf with my New look “Weekends I Love You” t-shirt, my New look black ripped jeans and my plain tan heels. This is a simple look, but remains stylish, and the colours all compliment each other nicely, nothing is too distracting, so it’s quite a classic look. And as the scarf is an infinity one, you don’t need to worry about how is best to wear it with this look, just slip it on and you’re good to go!



outfit2

Cute & Girly | Here I have paired the Long Lace Top Socks with one of my floral playsuits. This look is so easy to pull off, takes no time to put together and it’s perfectly girly. The florals and plain ballet flats are perfect for spring, and these socks are not only adorable, but perfect for spring-time when the weather isn’t quite suitable for bare legs.

These socks are not yet available, so do excuse the missing toes as full pictures were not possible.


OUTFIT3Vintage Inspired | Here I’ve created a very vintage-inspired outfit, featuring the Collette scarf. Again, this look is very classic, as I have said before, a black skater skirt is an absolute staple if you like to wear dresses and skirts. Pairing it with a peachy-coloured top, plain black heels, and I chose to add pearls, and instantly you’ve got a gorgeous vintage style. This scarf kind of reminds me of a ballerina, because of it’s light colour and white floral detailing, so I think it’s perfect to wear with a very classic look.


So those are the pieces on my Spring wishlist from Powder, have yourself a little browse and let me know what you’d add to your wishlist and how you would style it!
