I was recently contacted by body jewellery company, Karma Se7en, who asked if I’d like to review a couple of their products. I was thrilled as I’ve been in the market for a new piece for my tragus piercing. I’m quite sensitive to metals so it is difficult to find something that is non-allergenic but also pretty, but Karma Se7en’s collection had plenty of choice which is really refreshing.Continue Reading . . .
In all seriousness, who doesn’t like pineapples?! They are just so tropical and summery, I love them. Not only do they taste amazing, but they just look so cute and they remind me of being on holiday in the Caribbean! This year I think there has been an abundance of pineapple prints and homeware so I have decided to collate some of my faves in a pineapple themed wishlist for you all to enjoy too.
I’m loving the cushion, but unfortunately it wouldn’t go with our living room’s colour scheme, wahh. Just need to have a tropical themed bedroom now…..
The gold pineapple necklace from River Island is too cute and the perfect way to tropical up any outfit, so ideal for holidays.
Pineapple cocktail sticks, you need these in your life for homemade pina coladas or Singapore slings. Just think how fancy you will look with a pineapple chunk skewered on it. Cocktail umbrella optional.
The Boohoo playsuit is so perfect for summer. It is casual enough you could wear it on the beach over a bikini, but could be dressed up with wedges and a statement necklace. It looks so comfortable too! The pineapple print is quite understated for those who don’t want to go full on in your face tropical.
So apparently you can get pineapple spoons! I know I’m going a bit far now, but if they are out there then there must be a demand! They would be great for serving with a pineapple dessert at a dinner party. You’d be the hostess with the mostess for sure.
The LUSH shampoo sounds lie heaven in a bottle to me. Packed full of tropical fruits it works to clarify your hair and leaves it smelling like a fruit cocktail, om nom nom!
Would you buy any of these items?
Everyone needs a floral crown in their life for summer and this one is just up my street because the blue flowers are a little bit different from the typically pink based crowns. I might also feel a little bit like Frozen’s Elsa wearing it….
You’ve got to have a bit or arm candy suitable for the summer and this candy pink bag is just calling out to me. I tend to go for bags that have the option to be carried on the crook or your arm, but also have a strap for days when you want to be hands free so this is perfect for my summer needs.
I have just bought my third lot of the L’Oreal Elvive Fibrology shampoo and conditioner, so it is safe to say I am loving them. My hair is already very thick, but I often feel I need a bit of a boost at my roots. This fab duo leaves my hair smelling great and feeling thicker and bouncier. Even my boyfriend has commented that his hair feels thicker!
I have also been loving the Aussie Miracle Recharge Conditioning Spray to keep my hair from getting dry and horrible. I have reviewed this bad boy for a guest post on Parie’s blog, Class and Glitter, which should be up very soon, so keep your eyes peeled for some haircare tips!
Makeup bag Essentials
Let’s first of all start with this beauty of a makeup bag from Primark. I love tribal prints and the monochrome fabric with the pop of bright yellow on the zip is summertime perfection for me. My current makeup bag needed an update and this one was calling out to me!
My lips always seem to get quite dry, and certain lipsticks make it worse, particularly matte finishes (sob), so my must have lip product is LUSH’s lip scrub. They come in a variety of flavours, but my fave is Mint Julips which is just like mint choc chip…yum! I have reviewed this before, so definitely check it out if you are considering popping this is your shopping basket.
Maybelline’s Lash Sensational Mascara could actually be my all time favourite mascara. Bold claim, I know. But this stuff works wonders! I did try Roller Lash when it came out, and if I’m honest, it didn’t really do it for me. A lot of people have said this baby is a great dupe for Roller Lash, but I actually think it is much better, plus it half the price. My lashes look so full and long that people have asked me if I am wearing false lashes!
I’ve mentioned Primark’s £1 stick on nails before, but they have lots of super cute summer time patterns in store at the moment, I just couldn’t resist the little flaminigos and pastel icecream cones! They are the perfect way to jazz up an outfit if you don’t have time for a full mani. They are so easy to apply and they last for a good couple of days before they start to ping off.
I’m a huge fan of Purechimp products after trying out their Super Face Cream. Their products are completely natural and so they are ideal for those who have sensitive skin. Since I loved the face cream so much, I decided to purchase the body cream too. I’ve been stressed a lot at work recently, and this causes a dermatitis flare up (sorry if this is TMI!) on my elbows and fingers. This is really itchy and sore and can lead to my skin cracking and peeling. This fantastic cream can help to stop the rash plus it heals the cracked skin really fast. To put this into perspective, I had been applying a really rich hand cream to my sore fingers three or four times a day and was having no luck relieving it. I put this cream on once and the itching and soreness was gone overnight and within a few days it had healed. My sister gets the same thing and this is the only product that helps her out too. This really is a miracle cream if you suffer from skin allergies, I can’t recommend it enough.
I recently won a copy of Keri Smith’s Wreck This Journal in a blog giveaway and I was so excited because I have wanted to get it for ages! The moment it came through the letterbox I began flicking through the pages looking at all the different ways I will be destroying it. I have already completed a few of the pages and once it is finished I will write a post showing you what I have done! I really recommend this for anyone who likes to be a bit creative – or destructive! It would make a fantastic present as well.
I want to start sharing with you some of the best blog posts that I have read recently. I don’t know if this will become a regular feature or if I will do it once in a while, but let’s give it a go anyway!
I got my tragus pierced to celebrate the end of exams in my first year at university, and since then I have kept the same jewellery in. So when I got the chance to pick out a couple of pieces from Body Jewellery Shop I was very excited to finally try something new.
The first piece that I selected was a very different style to what I have been wearing for the last few years. I decided that I wanted to go for a BCR so I took a look at the list of ear piercings available from Body Jewellery shop and found this lovely Outwards Stars surgical steel BCR* which I think is prettier and more feminine than a plainer ring. The star detail is much cuter than the plain labret style stud I was wearing before and makes my ear piercing stand out more as mine is very discrete.
It’s made from surgical steel which is great news for anyone with metal allergies, However, I am very sensitive to metals and the only thing I can comfortably wear long term is titanium or gold. I was able to wear the BCR for three days across the Easter weekend before any irritation started so I will still continue to wear it during weekends. I doubt that the material would be a problem for many people though, so don’t let this put you off.
The second earring I selected was a better fitting labret stud for days when i was to keep my piercing a little more discrete. I wanted something that I could wear long term, so the titanium micro labret stud* was the perfect choice for me. I went for the 1.2mm x 6mm version which is a perfect fit. The length is short enough that I don’t have to re-position my jewellery every time I put my earphones in, but still leaves a couple of millimeters for ease of insertion and removal.
