Perfumes For Spring/Summer

L’Eau De Rose

The L’eau de rose perfume by Jeanne Arthes is definitely a new favourite of mine, I received it in my February glossybox and have been loving it since. It’s so light and girly and perfect for everyday wear.

‘Representing simple elegance, L’Eau de Rose reflects the sensual and modern woman. A refreshing and sophisticated composition for a classy and stimulating fragrance. A perfume which represents the delicate and seductive woman perfectly – a homage to romance and femininity.’

 RRP: £20.30 for 30ml

Lovestruck

I’d never used a Vera Wang perfume before I received this one for my birthday in February but I’m loving it! It’s the perfect scent for summer evenings as it is quite deep and musky without being too heavy.

‘There’s an instant attraction to the mouth-watering pink guava and mandarin which is followed by a delicate mix of tuberose and lotus blossom.Behind it all, precious woods and sheer musk combine to create a passionate elegance. Vera Wang Lovestruck represents an irresistible romance and captures the feeling of a woman who is struck by love and captivated by passion.’

#1 – Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Endless

This has to be the best mascara I’ve ever used, it makes your lashes extremely long and thick and doesn’t clump what so ever. It’s also great for achieving any look, from natural to an almost false effect depending on the amount you apply and holds up amazing throughout the day – no signs smudging or flaking at all!

Retails at around £7.99

#2 – Maybelline The Falsies

This mascara is great for giving extremely thick looking lashes as its specially designed curved brush coats every lash giving a fuller, more dramatic look.

Retails at around £7.99

#3 – 17 Blow Out Mascara

Read review on this mascara here: http://youniquechic.com/2012/08/

Retails at around £4.00

#4 – Avon Super Extend Mascara

This mascara is amazing for a more natural look as it gives lashes length but not much volume. Perfect for daily wear and holds a curl really well.

Retails at around £10

#5 – Soap And Glory Thick&Fast

The huge brush on this mascara helps to thicken the lashes whilst giving a lot of volume and curl. My only issue is that it works amazing for the first few weeks but seems to dry up quickly.

Retails at around £10

My Top 5 Summer Clothing Items

With the recent hot weather we’ve been having in Britain lately I’ve had the chance to get some use out of the summer clothes I usually only get to wear abroad. So I thought I would share with you my favourite pieces this season.

1.Crop Tops

I’ve been loving wearing crop tops with high waisted shorts/pants/skirts, showing about an inch of my midriff. I think this is extremely flattering and is a lot more subtle if you aren’t someone who could walk around with their whole stomach on show. My favourite crop top is my white lace one from Topshop.

2. Coloured Jeans

I absolutely love coloured jeans, they’re a great way to change up your entire style for the summer months without having to make too much effort. They also come in various styles and colours so there’s a pair to suit everyone. My favourite jeans are these coral skinny ones from Marks and Spencer.

3. Casual dresses

I’ve been loving cotton dresses this season as they’re cool, comfortable and easy to throw on when you don’t know what to wear. They also go just as well with sandals as they do with converse, making them extremely versatile. My favourite is this floral one from Primark.

4. Playsuits

Playsuits are a great alternative to a dress or shorts in the summertime and come in a variety of styles. My favorites are my floral one from Republic and my khaki one from Tkmaxx.

5. Eyelet detail

Eyelet detail looks great on tops and dresses and is extremely girly and delicate. My favourite top with this effect is my white one from Tkmaxx.
