TUXEDO DRESS | FASHION



 Tuxedo dresses are an easy way to style this autumn season. I love this look from ASOS (similar) and if I can have a tux dress in every colour, I would!

MY MAKEOVER WITH RODIAL + PRODUCTS USED | BEAUTY















Recently, I have fallen for so many new products, which is uncommon me. I tend to stick with what I know and if it works for me, I stay loyal!

PIXI BEAUTY | SKINCARE AND MAKEUP 'MUST HAVES'




















Summer is the season where one doesn't need to be doing too much to their skin. Using lighter products, nothing too thick (apart from your SPF)! You want to enhance your natural beauty, wear minimal makeup and let your radiance shine through.

SPRING IS HERE, LET'S JUST SLAY...



I get to pretend to be a model every now and then...and this dress certainly brought it out of me. Hehe!

 There is nothing that I love than wearing a free, flirty outfit on a spring/summers day. 
Plus, with how warm it was recently, I used the opportunity to take some outfits shots in the perfect street of Regents Park. The sun was just about setting and Zipporah (dope photographer and she happens to be my bestie), managed to capture a hazy, ethereal feel to these shots.

I bought this beautiful wrap dress on the Topshop website, on sale! I fell in love with the gorgeous floral print and the colour, a soft shade of pink-y peach, is very reminiscent of a kimono style. 
I tied the featured belt to snatch in the waist and paired it with subtle, nude court heels to complete the look! For more of an edge, you can pair with ankle boots or better yet skinny jeans.

So whose slaying with me?
Hope you enjoyed this post!

SPRING SKINCARE WITH CLARINS

Howdy y'all!
 Now that the weather is getting warmer, these are the skincare products I use to see me through the spring/summer season. I'm an avid fan of Clarins, (am sure you probably know this already) and I can't stress enough how important skincare is and why you should always care for your skin, no matter what. I mean, this is the skin you will have for the rest of your lives, so treat it like it's your temple! (right, enough being preachy).
These range of products that I'm introducing to you, are amazing, inexpensive and light weight for the skin. Just what you need for this weather to perfect that base of yours.


Beauty: Spring Skincare

Here are the original sizes for the Clarins products shown above, as some of the products on my flatlay are smaller versions.
~~~
*from left to right* Daily Energiser Cleansing Gel, {Link}
Before I apply this, I wet my face and use the cleansing gel onto my skin. This cleanses my skin thoroughly and you can tell it how clean it makes your skin look and feel. Washes off makeup instantly.

Hand and Nail Treatment Cream, {Link}
Your hands always need attention and care and this bad boy keeps my hands so soft, hydrated and what's even better? Not even a sticky feeling. My nails can sometimes become dry and brittle and this product helps keep my nails going from strength to strength in the time of need. With ingredients like Aloe Vera and Shea, you know this smells divine!

Pure Melt Cleansing Gel, {Link}
I mentioned in the beginning about wetting my face before applying the Daily Energiser Cleansing Gel. Well, this is the other way round. You apply this product to your damp skin first, massage the gel all over your face, avoiding the eye area. The gel transforms into an oil consistency (that's the Marula oil) and picks up every bit of dirt off the skin. Water activates the gel into a silky milk that cleans your skin. I look so radiant after doing this, its insane! 

Multi-Active Day, {Link}
A must have in my opinion, this is a new addition to my skincare collection and I must say this leaves my skin feeling so moisturised and plump. Not to mention, the sweet smell of this lotion lingers and I just love it.

Beauty Flash Balm, {Link}
The product that keeps on giving! This has to be the longest Clarins product I have owned and I swear by this. This gives you that instant, youthful glow. I apply this after my daily moisturiser for a skin pick-me-up. I've had my tired days and this will make you look how coffee makes you feel. Alive, rested and ready to go.

Daily Energiser Wake-up Booster, {Link}
I highly recommend this! This toner is a life saver for mornings when you feel your skin is looking so dull and not at its best. I pop the booster onto a cotton pad and gently apply all over my face. Its toning benefits helps boost my complexion, leaving my skin lustrous.

What skincare products do you use in spring/summer?
I hope you found this post helpful!

KEEP IT CLASSY



When it's a beautiful day in England and the chances are we may not experience this for a while...It calls for a photoshoot in the sunshine!

This season is all about taking on a distinctive trend. I have seen the comeback of frills, twisted, ruffled and knotted garments and I think it's such an easy way to look like you're making a fashion statement, without being too overdone. I had to share this look for you guys just because I love an outfit that boasts standout details as well as keeping it classique.

I simply styled this outfit with a structured white crop top that has a curved hem at the bottom. I felt this would work perfectly with ruffled culottes to show off the details of the trousers and give the overall outfit a perfect contrast! I teamed it with a black envelope clutch bag and staple black court heels. This look can easily take you from day to night.

I can't wait to show you more outfit posts now that spring has arrived. 
Be sure to follow me on all social media handles to keep updated.

WHAT EVERY LADY SHOULD CARRY IN HER HANDBAG

Who doesn’t love a good facial mist for refreshing your skin. The pure joy of having infused water all over your face with hydrating, moisturising ingredients that you can’t seem to get enough of. 
This has become an instant favourite of mine, especially on days when my face needs a pick-me-up. I pop this in my handbag (great travel size) and it goes everywhere with me. Great to use after a long flight or a workout session, the versatility is endless. I love to use this when setting my makeup, as it does not smudge. Instead, it keeps your makeup lasting longer, dewy and refreshed. 
 Having a no makeup day? I call this 'glow in a bottle' because of how radiant this miracle worker makes your skin look on a bare face. I am AMAZED by this product, even more so at the fact that it's affordable at £7 a bottle - a little spritz goes a long way. I'm sure we all want glowing skin this winter and with my favourite ingredient rosewater in the mix ( I swear by rosewater), it helps revive dehydrated skin. This right here is a permanent resident in my handbag!

Have you tried Mario Badescu products before? Anything I should try out?
Let me know

ANDROGYNOUS CHIC


Happy New Year, hope you all had a good one?
January start and I am starting`it with a stylish one. 
I''m trying to make this a regular thing on my blog. I love styling outfits together and I want to show you guys more of that side to me.
Now, this outfit may be frightful for some during this cold weather we have in England. I suggest you throw on some tights, if you are not so comfortable about baring your legs. 
A boyfriend shirt "a borrowed shirt from your man" is the ultimate laid back look! This simple, crisp, large white shirt has a not-so-fitted look about it, that can be worn how you want. You can wear with skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans with your shirt tucked in. You can wear shorts or if like me, thigh-high boots.
Wearing OTK boots, with bare legs gives an androgynous and chic element to your outfit. As opposed to black OTK boots, I thought I go for this neutral, beige colour, it's such a lovely warm colour and I will let you on in a little fashion secret - it creates the illusion of longer legs. 
This whole attire is a perfect contrast from baggy up top, to slim at the bottom!


I hope you enjoyed this post.
