GET THE LOOK: the outfit I’ve been loving

Tuesday, 10 October 2017

Hello everyone,

Today we have another different post. I’m not really one who is in crazily fashion but I do love shopping and buying new clothes (who doesn’t?). After finding a new app that I am obsessing over "21 buttons" (follow me: lifeofellabella) I was inspired to share with you one of my most worn outfits at the moment.

Primark is the place to be in terms of affordable fashion. The only issue with everything being “cheap” is that you fill your basket “because it’s cheap” and then get to the till and it’s no longer that cheap, anyone relate?

Full Look

Dont mind me and my awkward pose trying to be a model...(cringing badly right now).
Everything apart from the bag is from Primark and I personally think this outfit looks much more expensive than £25 (including shoes).

I paired the outfit with these boots, which for me are something very different and out there. I am very much a comfy flats kinda girl but when I saw these I feel in love. They just add something unique to the outfit. I wasn't sure if they would match but they did, however they would also look amazing with jeans and a plain top. Plus THEY ARE COMFORTABLE.
I never thought I would be so excited over floral boots...

I hope you enjoyed this less wordy more OOTD post.

My Skincare Routine

Sunday, 1 October 2017

Hello Everyone,

This Sunday I am back with my skincare routine.
Without sounding vain, I have pretty good skin, a fingers crossed, my skin has been pretty good all throughout my teenage years.
Seeing as I have managed to keep my skin very clear, I thought I would share with you guys exactly how I do so.

First of all I will give you a brief outline of my skin type: normal skin with some dry patches. I rarely get spots and my skin is extremely sensitive.

Now of course there are days where I used a different face cream, or face wash, or buy a new product to try... however I am going to show you my 'holy grail' skin care products.

Normally the first thing I would do is remove my eye makeup using this micellar water as mascara tends to be the trickiest product to remove.
This micellar water is 'oil infused' which just makes my skin feel absolutely lovely. It is brilliant for my skin type however there are other variations which may suit you more.
My eyes are very sensitive, as are many peoples eyes, however this does not cause any irritation.
I would just like to add that this micellar water is extremely affordable which is always a bonus.

I then move on to my cleanser. This cleansing balm is stunning. It is by emma hardie, it smells lovely and it leaves your skin feeling clean and nourished. I take a small amount and take time to massage it into my face, the more you massage it the more oil like it becomes. Taking a warm wet cleansing cloth that comes with the balm, I removed the oil- and along with it my makeup.
However, this lovely balm does not come cheap at £50 a tub, hence why this is normally on my birthday or christmas list! Although I must say, such a small amount is needed that this lasts for about a year.
The only downside is that if you get this near your eyes it can cause your eyes to feel sticky/sore, which is of course unpleasant, hence why I remove eye makeup before hand.

A cheaper alternative to the balm would be this pair. A garnier cleanser and a NO7 toner. I use a cotton pad to rub the cleansing lotion all over my face and then another pad to remove then cleansing lotion.I repeat this until all makeup is gone! Again I will use a cotton pad to apply toner, however I do not remove the toner.

These two products work very well together and they work really well when I have had a more minimal makeup day. Days were I am wearing full coverage makeup then this cleanser might not quite reach the needed standard!

This cream is the moisture restore night cream, it has a beautiful gel like texture which is refreshing and almost tightening. My skin just feels lovely the next day. I don't have anything to say other than: perfect affordable cleanser.

Finally I apply my eye cream, which is currently this Kiehls avocado eye treatment. For someone who suffers with heavy eye bags, a good eye cream is somewhat essential. I can assure you that this cream is fab and I am very sad that it is running out. Kiehls, I will be back soon to repurchase.

That is it for todays post. I hope this helped some of you and I hope you enjoy any products you try.
