Handbag - Primark (Similar here from Debenhams)
Bracelets - Primark
Earrings - BHS

So I ended  up buying quite a few items from last week's wardrobe wishlist post (oops!) - and this dress is one of them. I can't tell you how much I love it! I adore the pink dogtooth print and I think its pastel colour is perfect for spring and summer. I know for sure that I'll be wearing this dress lots during the warmer months. It's from Missguided and it cost me £14.99 as it was on sale (bargain alert!). In my opinion, Missguided are really bringing it at the moment. It's definitely one of my favourite online shops!

I paired the dress with my coral Primark bag, which I love. It's quite old so I've found a similar bag here from Debenhams. I also wore gold bracelets, a pair of white feather earrings and some white kitten heels.

What do you think of this outfit? :)

April Wardrobe Wishlist

Spring is in full swing and summer is just around the corner! At this time of the year I always find myself lusting over the latest trends and dreaming of the perfect spring/summer wardrobe. I would love to own all of the items I've featured above. The two crop tops would be great for the warmer months. I also love the vintage-inspired paisley blue shorts and think they would look amazing paired with some nice heels. The standout for me has to be the white leather ASOS heeled sandals; I'm loving this trend at the moment!

Do you like any of the items above? What's on your spring/summer wardrobe wishlist?

Vera Wang Princess | Review

Vera Wang Princess - Available from Boots, Superdrug and Debenhams

Vera Wang Princess is definitely one of my favourite perfumes at the moment! It has quickly become my go-to fragrance for everyday wear. It comes in a cute, eye-catching heart-shaped bottle that really does look lovely on the dressing table. The bottle design reflects its scent; Princess is a fresh, girly fragrance that has a good mix of fruity and floral notes. It has top notes of Apricot, Apple and Water Lily and heart notes of Pink Guava, Wild Tuberose, Dark Chocolate and Tiare Flower. It also contains base notes of Chiffon Vanilla, Pink Frosting, Amber and Wood.

I'd say that although it's a very noticeable scent, Princess is quite soft and delicate. Because of this, I think it's perfect for daytime use and is the ideal fragrance for the spring and summer months. I adore this perfume and think it's worth a try!

Vera Wang Princess is available to buy from Boots, Superdrug and Debenhams. Prices range from around £34 - £45 depending on the size bottle you go for.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream | Review

The Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream | Review
The Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream - £10.00

During one of The Body Shop's half price sales (which, thankfully, occur pretty frequently!), I purchased their Vitamin E Eye Cream. I bought it because I've been really into skincare lately and I wanted to delve into the world of eye creams a little more. For the last few months I've been using this pretty much every night - so here are my thoughts!

This product is a staple in my nightly skincare routine. The cream itself is thick and super hydrating. It intensely moisturises the eye area whilst leaving the skin feeling lovely and smooth. The small 15ml tube claims to reduce the appearance of fine lines, puffiness and dark circles. I can't vouch for the fine line reduction but I can say that it does help reduce puffiness and dark circles. When I use this at night, the next morning puffiness is greatly reduced and it leaves your eyes looking more awake. It also keeps dark circles minimal - which is amazing! It won't get rid of dark circles completely but it does vastly improve them.

All in all, I'm very happy that I've tried this product. I'd recommend this to anyone who is looking for an affordable eye cream. This really is a great value product that is worth a try!

The Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream is available to buy from The Body Shop's website (where there's currently a 50% sale!) and in store for £10.

Have you tried this before? What eye cream do you use at the moment?

March Favourites | Beauty

So, it's that time of the month where I share my current favourite products of the moment! Today, I'll be talking about four products that have stood out for me this month. All of these are amazing in my opinion and even better, they all come with a very affordable price tag.

My first beauty favourite is The Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream. I've been using this for a while now and consider it a staple product in my skincare routine at the moment. When I use this, it leaves the eye area feeling smooth, refreshed and hydrated. It also really does help reduce puffiness and the appearance of dark circles.

Next up, I've been loving the Sleek Oh So Special Eyeshadow Palette. I've always found Sleek eyeshadow palettes very impressive - the shadows are always such high quality and are super, super pigmented. Oh So Special contains a lovely range of browns and pinks - it's very versatile so you can easily create looks for both the day-time and the evening.

Avon is not a brand I had tried in the past. But I decided to give one of their eyebrow products a go and bought an Eyebrow Glimmerstick in the shade "blonde." As soon as I used this, I loved how easy the application was because of its slightly waxy texture. I also really like how natural looking the "blonde" shade is.

Last but not least, another favourite for March is the Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in the shade "Latino." I recently repurchased this as I missed having it in my collection! It's a lovely mid rose pink shade that applies very nicely due to the super smooth texture. It's also incredibly moisturising and glossy - perfect!

What have you been loving this month? Have you tried any of these products?
