Hello Beauts 

Ahhh the weather this week in England has been aaa-mazing! Its also meant that whilst my sisters back from uni we can spend lots of time outside shooting outfits in the sunshine, which is just the best feeling after freezing shooting dresses, in literally minus temperatures haha! Anyway on with the post, this has been one of my go to outfits recently as I find its just perfect for this time of year so I hope you all enjoy!

When I received these gorgeous ripped knee skinny jeans from Rare London I just couldn't wait to style them as I'd been after a pair of grey jeans for ages! They are so super comfortable and fitted me really well. Just incase you're wondering I'm wearing XS as I'm quite a shorty at 5"4. From dresses to jeans Rare London are always so on point with sizing and styles so you never have to worry about not looking on trend. I paired this outfit with one of my current favourites, a nude knitted jumper from H&M which I find gives me just the right balance as I'm not too hot or cold. I also find that the split detailing really flatters my figure and the jeans. 

Now onto accessories! I am loving this satchel from Label MB I find that it compliments so much of my spring summer wardrobe with its neutral tones and a splash of gold which I absolutely adore! It's also one of my only smaller bags so great for when I'm popping out and only need a few bits with me. As for the quality that also ticks all of the right boxes for me! I also added a pair of my favourite sunglasses from Jeepers Peepers which are super on trend at the moment with their cat eye feel to compliment my gold accessories. To finish off the look I added some new sandals which I found in Primark & waved my Tantrum Hair Extensions.

Enjoy the sun & I'll see you in the next post!

HQHair - Pür Minerals Makeup

Hello Beauties 

Spring always gets me in the mood for trying and buying new makeup as its out with the super matt products for winter and hello to fresh summer dewy skin. I was luckily enough to try out a brand new makeup line launching on HQHair this month called Pür Minerals, which I have been loving, so I thought I'd share some products with you all. Thanks again to the lovely Sally for sorting this amazing collaboration out for me!

Pür Minerals Liquid Veil 4-in-1 Spray Foundation - HQHair - (Coming Soon)

I was so excited to try this foundation, as I'd never tried a spray before and had heard that sprays were the best to use for a complete air brushed look and guess what? Getting that gorgeous, airbrushed look has never been easier using this product, wow! This foundation is super ultra-light, and is buildable for skin-perfecting coverage. I can already tell that this product is going to come in super handy for my holiday if I only want a light coverage during the day as it also contains Liquid Crystals, which retain moisture and reflect light for a dewy soft finish. I would 100% recommend this product!

Pür Minerals Disappearing Ink 4-in-1 Face Concealer - HQHair - (Coming Soon)

This concealer is packed with concentrated skincare ingredients, including Ceretin Complex and a unique “Diamond Complex” that reflects light away from imperfections using soft-focus microspheres. I found that this pen was super helpful as it quickly brightens the appearance of dark circles, blurs the look of blemishes and wakes up tired-looking eyes.

Pür Minerals 4 in 1 Pressed Mineral Makeup - HQHair - £24

Whenever I use a liquid foundation, I find for my normal to oily skin type, it is key to use a powder to set my makeup for an all day finish. I also find that if I want something to stay on for longer powder foundations such as this one work amazingly. Pür Minerals have taken my powder game to a whole new level, as this one works as a concealer, a powder and a SPF15 protector all in one, making it much more than just a mineral powder foundation. This powder was lightweight and gave me a subtle glow which could be used on its own or over the spray foundation for light flawless glam.

Pür Minerals Big Look Mascara - HQHair - £15

Any mascara that involves Argan Oil immediately grabs my attention, due to its nourishing qualities, so when I found out that Pür Minerals made a mascara that not only included Argan Oil, but also promised to give me a dramatic eye look, I was so excited to try it out! This mascara delivered so well, completely living up to my expectations by giving me glossy black lashes. I such am a lover of the plastic wand as I found that the mascara separated and lengthened my lashes really nicely.  

I hope you all enjoyed my post, let me know if you try out any of the products!

So Chic By Courtney

Hello Beauts

Makeup is literally such a weakness of mine, I absolutely love a full face of glam for a night out, event or even just dinner with the girls! In the past I've had many makeup artists work their magic on me for gigs and events, but I've never rocked makeup that I've been 100% happy with as its either been too natural or hasn't suited my complexion, making me nervous when I get made up by somebody new. However, this has all changed. I have found myself one amazing makeup artist Courtney (who is actually an old childhood friend) from her salon So Chic, which is absolutely gorgeous! Courtney, made me look exactly how I'd always wanted too and made me feel fabulous.

When I arrived looking o'natural with no makeup, I was greeted by Courtney who was looking gorgeous with her fresh, glowy, dewy, and subtle glam which made me feel completed relaxed, as you can always get a good indication of how your makeup will turn out just by looking at your makeup artist. Courtney took me through to her beautiful white sunny salon, and talked me through exactly what look we'd be going for. As I was super happy from the word go, Courtney worked through the look by firstly achieving a flawless base and contour using cream products and a damp beauty blender. She then moved onto powder products to achieve perfect staying power for a night out and then gave me a gorgeous bronzed eye using one of my favourites the 'Naked 3 Palette'. She also used another favourite of mine 'Ardell Wispie' lashes and then added some individuals for extra glamour. Courtney added to to the look by giving me plumped up pout using Macs 'Spice' lipliner and a mixture of 'Faux' & 'Myth' for that perfect nude combo and lastly sprayed my face with Fix + to give me a dewy finish. 

I absolutely loved my makeup session with Courtney, we discussed foundations and I also got some fabulous makeup hints and tips whilst having a giggle at some of our school memories! Courtney is also available for Spray Tans, Gels and will adapt her glam to suit your needs. 

I really hope you all enjoyed this post! I'm really looking forward to showcasing the gorgeous Courtney's talents with more makeup looks on my blog very soon!

Miss Foxy - Grey Ruched Two Piece

Grey Ruched Midi Skirt - Miss Foxy - £9.99
High Neck Crop Top - Miss Foxy  - £9.99
Shoes: ASOS  - £45
Hair Extensions: Tantrum Hair - Micro Rings 

Happy Easter Beauts

Today we're taking major inspo from the queen herself Kimmy K, with this gorgeous two piece recreated by my fashion favourites Miss Foxy (yes they're back, I can't get enough of them, haha!) I have absolutely been dying to get my hands on a copy of Kim's co ordinate, so when this grey bodycon number arrived in my bloggermail I couldn't of been happier.

I'm all about two pieces! I love the fact they show off your midriff, especially when you've been putting a lot of summer body work in at the gym recently, yes, it does make it all that bit more worth while haha! The silky and smooth material means that this Miss Foxy beauty flatters all of your curves in all the right places, what could be better right? It also has added ruching for that extra bit of body confidence and style. Being the shorty that I am, I always find it super hard to find midi skirts that fit, however this midi ticked all the right boxes as you can roll it up or down to find a look that suits you. I find this Miss Foxy outfit really catches the eye and shows you off! 

I teemed this look with my beloved nude ASOS heels, which compliment the outfit by adding a hint of colour. I also went for a nude lip to match my heels and waved my gorgeous Tantrum Hair Extensions for some big beautiful hair.

So what are you waiting for? Head over and shop my favourites - Miss Foxy now, you won't regret it!
