I’ve been living in midi dresses so far this summer as they are comfortable and practical yet still flattering. I prefer the bodycon style however there are so many other options available to suit everyone.
Mom Style Jeans
Tight, uncomfortable skinny jeans are finally becoming a thing of the past and once you start wearing a looser option you definitely wont look back. I prefer the fit of the mom style high waisted jeans from Primark as they are really affordable and flattering on a range of different figures.
An oversized shacket is the perfect thing to throw over any summer outfit as they wont make you too warm and are definitely on trend at the moment. H&M and Newlook have some great options that wont break the bank.
I’ve been absolutely loving chunky trainers lately as they go with anything from dresses to jeans and are so comfortable for everyday wear. My favourites are these Puma ones I recently bought and they’re on sale now too!
Graphic t-shirts are everywhere at the minute and will look great layered with a midi dress or knotted up at the front with a pair of high waisted jeans. There are endless options so it shouldn’t be hard to find one that suits your style; my favourite is this one I got from Topshop a few months ago.
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.’
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.’
After having long hair for a good few years I decided to have a nice change and chopped off around 6-7 inches of hair! I thought I would share some photos with you incase you’re looking to get a shorter ‘do! Stayed tuned for some hairstyle ideas for medium hair in the coming weeks!
I realise this is still quite long to some people – but after having hair down to your waist its a huge difference and feels so short to me. I’m hoping to get it a little shorter too as I love it so much!
What do you think? Have any of you cut your hair off lately?
This is honestly the best cleanser I have ever used. It gently exfoliates my skin without being irritating and helps to keep oiliness and blemishes at bay. It is a little pricey at around £18 a bottle, but it lasts a few months and works brilliantly – so its worth it!
2. Soap and Glory ‘girligo’ body moisturising mist.
This moisturizing mist not only smells fantastic, but it absorbs really quickly too, perfect for when you’re in a hurry or don’t feel like using a heavy moisturizer on a hot summer day.
3. Dove summer glow
This gradual tanner gives my skin a natural, glowing tan without the awful smell. It also goes on smoothly, does not go streaky and can be applied just like a normal moisturizer with your hands (as long as you give them a wash afterwards!)
I find that the shade ‘light to medium’ works best on my skin tone.
4. Aussie aussome volume dry shampoo
This is honestly one of the best dry shampoo’s that I have ever used. It doesn’t leave any sort of white cast even on dark hair and gives my hair fantastic volume which lasts all day.
It also smells fantastic, which is a bonus.
5. Kiehl’s ultra facial oil free lotion
This cream keeps my skin feeling soft whilst looking matte and doesn’t cause me to break out. It also sinks into the skin really quickly so you don’t have to wait around before putting on your makeup
