Things I Love…

Standard

It’s been a while since I published a blog post but I’m back again with this post about things I’m loving at the moment.

Number 1:

My gorgeous new faux leather shorts from Topshop which I only just bought today! Cannot wait to wear them. My plan is to pair them with a lovely black shirt, embellished with gold beading on the cuffs and collar, which I got from Missguided a while ago (think I’ve blogged about it before) but have never worn, partly due to the fact I didn’t have anything to wear with it…but that’s all changed now these shorts have entered my life!! Definitely worth the £30 as I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of them. Also the faux leather isn’t too fake looking or shiny compared to some I’ve seen, the pictures can’t really convey the niceness! They have gold zip details on the outside leg too which I haven’t shown close-up in the pictures.

Number 2:

My gorgeous pink patent Ted Baker Mardun bag, which I love even more because of the bargain price I got it for at the Ted Baker outlet in Ashford! I now have the most organised bag ever- there’s a home for everything. One of the inside pockets is used for my phone, one for my keys, one for my lip gloss…etc etc. The outside pocket is unfortunately slightly too small to fit my 13” laptop when zipped up but I can still slot it in and not do the zip up; this is isn’t really a problem for me though as I rarely take my laptop out with me.

This is the lovely bull dog lining inside:

Number 3: My lovely Bobbi Brown cream shadow. I love this as it lasts for ages and you can build up the product nicely if you fancy a stronger looking eye, which is what I do for nights out. I also like to add a line of liquid eyeliner too. This colour is Galaxy (no.9 ) but there are loads to choose from, I spent a while deciding! Again, this is slightly pricey at £18 but a good investment.

Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Care

Standard

If you have dry hands that need a bit of nourishing then try Crabtree and Evelyn products- they do a great job!

Firstly exfoliate your hands with the hand recovery (a hand scrub)- work into dry hands to exfoliate and get rid of dry, dead skin then rinse under running water while still gently rubbing hands. Then follow with the hand therapy (a hand cream) which leaves hands feeling really pampered and soft! For even more treatment you can use the age-defying hand remedy too.

I have the La Source range (as above) which is the spa range that has a lovely fresh ‘sea air’ scent with extracts of sea algae.

A lot of people associate Crabtree and Evelyn with more mature customers but I’m in my early twenties and love their products. They cater for women of all ages. Crabtree and Evelyn is a luxury brand and the products aren’t cheap but they really do the job well and there are so many different fragrances and products, they’re well worth a visit and often have special offers (they’ve got 3for2 on their hand care products at the moment) 🙂
