Mirrored Sunglasses


When we took this particular set of outfit photos I can clearly remember it being one of those 'weather' days when it wasn't quite warm enough to fully bare yourself nor limbs, but it was still on the humid side of things. So with that in mind I decided to pull out these di.y'd panel trousers which have been an item that I tend to edge towards when the temperature drops a tad cooler, as thanks to their slightly 'loose' fit they can be the perfect item for type of weather.

Colour palette wise I kept it to my normal monochromatic shade range, with the sunglasses and panel detailing acting as the main accents of colour for the look. These glasses are actually (would you believe) from Primark and were only £3...I had to immediately snap them up as I couldn't help but wear them as an alternative to my classic ray-ban 'round' versions. In fact they are a pretty near similar shape and size on comparison, which make them the perfect purchase for those deliberating whether to part their cash with the originals.

Floral Maxi Dress


Last summer this dress was worn ALOT especially whilst I was out in LA, recap/reminiscent on that outfit here. In fact it'ss quickly turning into one of those pieces which you save for the warmer months, as it immediately makes an outfit look effortless whilst 0 effort has gone in to it. When its on the cooler side of the weather spectrum I love to layer this piece up, either with a vintage band tee or even a roll neck, if its particularly chilly. But with a trip to Florida being less than a week away this dress is one which I'm 100% taking with me, for those days when looser/flow-ey fabrics are your best friend. Because lets face it, its going to be very hot and humid. Expect a load of Florida/Miami themed posts to come your way very soon, as I'm going to make the most of every photo opportunity that comes my way.

The latest launch from the Beauty Kitchen comes in the form of this pouch of goodies a.k.a skincare must-haves, that are perfect for a skin pick-me-up whilst on holiday. All products have been enriched with Abyssinian Oil which is basically like the big sister of Argan oil, that mimics your skin's own oils leaving you with healthier feeling skin.

As I'm off into the Florida sunshine next week, these mini's have come at a perfect time as they are the perfect size for get-aways and can even be used in your hand luggage for an on-flight skincare session, to perk up your complexion.

With myself having combinayion/blemish prone skin I was partially intrigued to try these thanks to the added Abyssinian Oil mimicking your own skin and giving it a dose of nourishment. I've been using all products for over 2 weeks now, and can safely say that they've all had their benefits.  The key stand-out ones for me have to be the "5 Minute Miracle Mask" which I love to use once/twice a week (depending on how 'blemished' my skin is) to unclog my pores and give my skin a boost, plus as it has virtually no colour you could easily get away with using this in-flight.

Another stand-out product is the "Aroma Facial Concentrate" which is simply a facial oil that promotes cellular development, and thanks to its unique molecular structure it sinks deep into the layers of your skin. I prefer to use this in the evening once I've fully cleansed my skin, 2/3 drops are all you really need to cover your whole face. After using this product for a few weeks, I've noticed that the texture of my skin has improved and that (despite having oily skin) it feels more hydrated and  my make-up doesn't sink into those unflattering facial lines (e.g. laughter lines etc).

With all these products being 100% natural and only 'people tested', never animal. They make a perfect gift for someone about to jet off on holiday, as they are the perfect travel size and help give your skin a boost in the process. Needless to say that they have rightfully taken a place in my suitcase for my travels. They also come in a cute resealable pouch, make them even more travel friendly.
