Skincare Part II

Following on from my last post, I am carrying on with my "skincare routine", moving on to cleansing...

Skin care cleaning brush: This is a very recent purchase, and a very cheap purchase! At a bargain price of £2.69 from amazon, I know there are more expensive and better quality versions out there but I thought id give this one a go first. It isn't the best and most powerful electric cleanser but it does the job and so far I am enjoying it! Feels like I get a very deep clean from using it.

Simple Face Wash: I use this with the brush above, and so far I feel its very nice and does the job of freshening up my face. So far I am not sure of its 'spotless skin' powers but I will certainly keep you posted! This one was purchased from ASOS of all places, complete with student discount!

Look out for the third and final part in the next few days (I bet you're all on the edge of your seats ;) )

Skincare Part I

Happy Wednesday!

I thought over the next few posts I would go through what you might call my "skincare routine". I say this in inverted commas as I am incredibly lazy when it gets to taking care of my skin! However recently I have been experiencing a lot of break-outs so thought I would tackle this head-on. Some of these products are new and some my life-long friends. So, lets start with my make-up removal...

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water: I'm sure you've heard of this cleansing water, it is very similar to the famous Bioderma. I use this on a cotton pad to remove my make up or even just freshen up after a long day, its brilliant! Also it is very inexpensive, particularly if you buy it from Savers where you can find a big bottle for just £2.99.

Garnier Fresh Refining Toner: See a theme occurring? I find I have an issue with shine, particularly in the hot summer weather we have been having, so I thought I would try this and its great! I use it after the Micellar water and it helps to get the final dirt and oil from my face at the end of the day.

Nivea Soft Moisturiser: I cannot live without moisturiser in my life, particularly after cleansing my face! Not much to say about this really; I have used it for years and years, its lovely and really inexpensive.

Stay tuned for my next skincare post in a few days!

My Graduation Ball


Today I thought id share what I wore to my recent Grad ball - it was such a great night and a perfect way to say goodbye to University!

The Outfit
I got this dress last year from Zara but I have seen very similar ones in Zara and other shops this season! I love this dress as the white makes it a beautiful light and summery dress and it is made from stretchy scuba material so its super comfortable. Also, the low cut neck line and skater skirt style means it is very flattering.
The shoes I wore are just some old strappy sandles from Peacocks a few years ago, though there are loads in New Look this summer if you wanted to get your hands on a pair!
And finally I have a little necklace from H&M and earrings from Accessorize.

I lightly curled my hair and on my lips I have the Apocalips lip laquer in 'Eclipse'

The night was pretty good, there were acts such as Katy B and Labrinth playing as well as a funfair for everyone. It feels bitter sweet to have finally finished!

My Staycation

Last week I decided to join my parents on a little trip to Dorset. It made me appreciate England and the beautiful scenery which we take for granted!

Sadly I doubt I will be heading abroad this summer due to moving to London and starting a new job (and being skint because of it!) so this little glimpse of the English coast will have to do until my next holiday, and I must say - its not bad at all :)

What are your plans this summer?
