11 Things I'm Loving Right Now. ♥

Sunday, 10 September 2017

You guys know that I love sharing all of my favourites with you, and I haven't written this type of post in a while, so I thought I'd share a few of the things I'm loving right now, in no particular order. From mugs, to make up, to books, shoes, stationery, bags, purses and even fragrances! I hope you find something you love! ♥
♥ Cath Kidston x 101 Dalmatians Mug - £10 - available here 
I purchased this beautiful Cath Kidston mug a few months ago and I'm just obsessed. 101 Dalmatians has always been one of my all time favourite Disney films, so that fact that they've combined with my love for Cath Kidston is just the dream! 
♥ Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color 'Embrace'* - £8.99 - available here (see swatch below!)
♥ Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color 'Embrace'* - £8.99 - available here

Ok let's discuss how beautiful this Revlon lip colour is! I've always been a massive fan of Revlon's Ultra HD Matte Lip Color formulas, but this pretty, girly, soft, rose shade is just stunning and has become my go to lip colour recently! It's a really complimenting, wearable, pink shade, that would suit and compliment most skin tones. It's perfect for this time of year, as summer is drawing to a close, when you still want a touch of colour on your lips, but nothing too overpowering! The finish is matte, but not drying on your lips in the slightest. It's a dream to apply the lip colour, it's incredibly smooth, soft and velvety in terms of texture. You cannot feel the lip product sitting on the lips, and it's very comfortable to wear. 

Pigmentation is out of this world, with just one swipe over your lips, you are left with bold, pigmented, gorgeous colour. No need for two coats. At first, you will notice that the colour looks quite glossy, however, don't be fooled, this glossy finish disappears after around 5-10 seconds of drying and you are left with a beautiful semi-matte/matte finish.  

 I'm really impressed with the lasting power and the lovely stain it leaves on your lips, it lasts for around 3-4 hours before I need to top up. Best of all, the fruity, Vanilla scent reminds me of Summery days and is almost good enough to eat! I can't recommend the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colors enough -there's an amazing variety of shades available so be sure to check them out next time you're in Boots.  

 ♥ Revlon Photo Ready Insta-Fix Highlighting Stick 'Gold Light'* -£9.99 - available here (see swatch below)
♥ Revlon Photo Ready Insta-Fix Highlighting Stick 'Gold Light'* -£9.99 - available here 

Ok so you guys know, I'm a sucker for a highlight. Give me all the glow! I adore having a make up finish that is glowy, dewy and radiant. Recently I've been using the Revlon Photo Ready Insta-Fix Highlighting Stick in 'Gold Light' and I've become obsessed with the natural, luminous glow it gives my skin! The Golden shade gives you a gorgeous shimmer that's not too overpowering, just a lovely, healthy glow that makes you look amazing and feel confident! 

It's really simple and easy to apply to your skin. I tend to apply it to my forehead, cheekbones, bridge of nose, chin, underneath my eyebrows and anywhere my skin would naturally attract light! The stick function makes application easy and precise, especially for on the go! Lasting power is fantastic, the glow lasts for most of the day, and will last my 9-5 day, with just one top up at lunch time - which is amazing!

Pigmentation is fab, as you can see from the swatch above, where I only swatched one coat. I tend to use just one coat during the day for a more natural, subtle glow but if I'm on a night out, or it's a special occasion I will build the product up for an even more glowy, luminous, strobed finish. This stick will last forever as a little really does go a long way! I'm obsessed! Revlon also do another variation of this highlighting stick in the shade 'Champagne' - I'm really looking forward to trying that one. For the price, amazing pigmentation, lasting power, finish and quality, you simply cannot go wrong! 
♥ Academic Diary - £2.50 - Wilkos - available here 
I can't get enough of this cute, little, bargain that I picked up from Wilkos a few weeks ago! I thought the rose gold and pink design was gorgeous and I'm always looking for lovely, pretty, academic diaries at this time of year. At just £2.50 it was such a bargain! They also sold it in Mint Green which was equally as gorgeous! 
♥ Grace Victory - No Filter - £12 - available here
I've been a viewer of Grace's since she started her channel, and have always admired her honesty and amazing sense of humour, plus she's an absolute BABE. Look at her! If you're a viewer of Grace's or not, you really do need to buy this book - it's the perfect companion for young women and men. Grace openly discusses her struggles from Body Image, Domestic Violence, Mental Health, Anxiety, Sex, Food, and so much more, you name it - Grace discusses it and she makes you feel a whole lot less alone in your struggles. She gives advice, and by sharing her own experiences, she creates awareness for so many taboo subjects. It made me laugh and cry! Not only is it relatable, but like you're having a deep convo with your bestie - I read it within 2 days - it was that good!  Totally recommend! If you aren't already subscribed to Grace's channel - get yourself there girl. You can find it here. 
♥ Oasis Embroidery Espadrilles - was £28 now only £10!!!!! (Bargain!) - available here
As soon as I spotted these gorgeous black, embroidery espadrilles on the Oasis website, I had to have them in my life! I just loved how unique they were, and I hadn't seen anything as good as quality as them anywhere else online. Plus black goes with everything and they're really easy to style. I've been such a huge fan of the embroidery trend this summer - so I'm literally wearing these to death before Summer comes to an end in a few weeks! I originally bought them for full price, but now they're only £10, which is such a bargain because the quality is beautiful, and the design is even more stunning! Get yourself a bargain, girls! 
♥ Vitage Illuminating Tanning Drops* - £39- available here
You guys all know how obsessed I am with tanning products - I'm literally turning into a tanning product expert and I'm finally finding the ones that really work the best for me, my skin and give me the best results. I featured these lovely Illuminating Tanning drops on both my blog, here and on my Instagram page here, this past month and you guys cannot get enough of hearing about them, so I thought I'd give them a more in depth mention in this post and explain why I've become obsessed with them! The tanning drops are really simple, quick and easy to use. You simply add your desired amount of drops (more drops = more tanned) into your regular moisturiser, and allow the tan to develop throughout the day or overnight. Over the following days, you're left with flawless, natural, streak-free, radiant, tanned and golden skin! You can use this stuff on your face and body, and it's the perfect solution if you want to personalise your tan, and create a colour that's buildable and suitable for you! I really like using the drops on areas like my elbows, knees, feet, hands and face, where I want an even, tanned, glow but nothing too harsh, patchy or disastrous! I can't recommend these tanning drops enough! You need them in your life! 
♥ Micahel Kors Studded Bag* - Jules B - £169
♥ Michael Kors Studded Purse* - Jules B - was £74.99  now only £37.50 ... bargain!!!  

Ok let's talk about how beautiful this matching Michael Kors bag and purse are? These have literally been my go to companions of late, and they haven't left my side. I absolutely love the quality of them, and how easy they are to pair alongside different outfits. They're really classy, and will never go out of style! I'm a little bit in love...
♥ So...? 'Wild Berries'* and 'Floriental'* Body Mists - £3.99 each - available here 

For as long as I can remember, I've been a fan of So...? Fragrances and body sprays. When I was at school as a teenager, you were simply not cool if you were not equipped with the fruitest, So...? fragrance. I remember I would carry their So...? Sinful fragrance every where I went, and even now when I catch a whiff of it, it reminds me of being a teenager and brings back so much nostalgia. Recently, I fell back in love with So...? but this time with their stunning Body Mists. If you haven't tried these Body Mists already, you've been seriously missing out and need to get yourself stocked up, as soon as possible! First of all, how cute is the packaging? So girly, feminine and lovely to have sitting on my dressing table! So...? have 6 body mists available so there will definitely be a fragrance that we'll all fall in love with! The scents are also focused on either: Deliciously fruity or beautifully floral. Sounds amazing right? Best of all, the fragrances are not overpowering, and they're so fresh and easy to wear. They're also a perfect addition to your fragrance collection in Summer, when I like to keep my Body Mists in the fridge, so that they're cool and refreshing every time I spritz some onto my skin, in the warm weather! 

 Two of my favourite body mists from the So...? Body Mist range, have to be: 

Wild Berries - This is such a stunning fragrance, described as a wild scent that teases your senses! It's full of fruity, wild berry notes. I've been wearing this beauty almost daily, and I know it will be even more lovely to wear in the Autumn months. 

Floriental -  Again another beautiful fragrance, this body mist is a more floral based scent. Described as a cocktail blend of floral and fruity notes. Perfection from start to finish. With notes of mouth watering Manadrin, and Apple it awakes your senses before melting you into a medley of freesia and violet = heavenly! 

I can't recommend the So...? Body mists enough. At just £3.99 for 100ml bottles, they're an absolute bargain and the scents are just beautiful!
