Hands, Eyes and Hair - Oh my!

This winter I have tried to find things to help the usual signs of wear and tear these cold months can bring. Hands, eyes and hair have been my main port of call, and the various trips to Boots have resulted in me finding the below: Hands: Crabtree & Evelyn, Rosewater Therapy Hand Cream The picture makes this tube look bigger than it actually is, but it is tiny! It’s slightly longer than my middle finger and not much wider (I have very dinky fingers). I’d heard good things about Crabtree & Evelyn, so thought I’d give this hand cream a go. It has yummy shea butter and macadamia nut oil to keep hands looking smooth and silky. I've been using it for just over a week and my hands do feel a lot softer, almost creamy; I wouldn't implore you to run out and get this if you're happy with the hand cream you're currently using, but if you are looking for something new, this is pretty good.

Easy does it

Beautiful and bright swing dresses are 90% of my wardrobe, but sometimes I wake up and think 'I just want something easy, comfortable, but still fab' - enter Pink Clove . I adore this forest green colour and the fabric is so stretchy and comfy. I'm not usually one for wrap dresses but being a 'wrap bust' dress with the bottom half skater, makes this dress so easy to wear. Upon further inspection this dress could easily be dressed up. The wrap at the top is adjustable, so you could have a little fun with it if you were to have a date ;) *Ahem*, moving on....I really like Pink Clove and their designs and range is ever growing. I also bought a über sexy dress from them and will be sure to blog about that when I wear it. I paired the dress with my 'snow boots'. I had only bought one other pair of snow boots before but they were so ugly I never wore them; so last year I decided I would buy cute ones I could actually wear all day without having

Red? What Red?!

I received an email from one of my lovely readers after a post late last year called ‘ The six shades of Christmas ’. She really loved the post, but as it was pretty red heavy, wanted me to do one with alternative shades for darker skin. I am prone to red, but I thought it was a really good idea and used this as an opportunity to explore new shades. I found more shades than I thought I would, but below are my favourite five: Bourjois , Rouge Edition Shade: Brun Boh è me On my skin tone, this comes out as a glossy reddy-brown and is a tamer alternative to red if you don’t wish to venture too far out of your comfort zone. The Rouge Edition range has eighteen lovely colours to suit all, from striking reds to nudes, you’ll really struggle not to find a shade that you love. Seventeen , Supreme Shine Lipstick Shade: Bon Bon This is my nude colour. I’ve been looking for a nude for darker skin for a while and from the blogs I have read, many ladies have

Sheer Loving & Polka Dots

One of the great things about working in Central London for the psblogger, is having so many interesting backdrops to take pictures. These were taken outside a garage door, but look how gorgeous the wood and carvings are! Another great thing is having friends who can come and meet you for lunch – enter Hanna  :D My lovely friend Hanna came to meet me for lunch and we headed to Patisserie Valerie for foody goodness, but we also took the opportunity between bouts of rain to take some outfit photos. I wore my newish dress by Cutie for Simply Be for the first time, and you may wonder whether or not you’ve seen me wear this before. I can assure you I haven’t, I just literally have that many polka dot dresses! This dress has a lovely sheer neckline, is the perfect length and well fitted across the waist (a constant bane in my life). I really love the Cutie range and look forward to some new items in Spring/Summer: Dress: Cutie for Simply Be Cardigan & Leggings: S

Where the wind blows

There are many reasons why I choose to take pictures outside rather than inside. I love the natural elements and love to see the changing seasons throughout the year in my pictures; I also love natural lighting, and taking pictures outside a cool building or near greenery. But sometimes the weather can be tricky to navigate. I wisely decided to wear one of the most lightweight dresses on one of the windiest days, last week, and it was a struggle to keep my dignity while trying to take pictures. My photographer of the day, Soph, and I persisted none the less and managed to get some pretty nice pictures. The most fun was trying to fight the wind, and below is the tale of bloggers weather woes: Dress: ASOS Curve (sale item) Cardigan: South (via Very ) Belt: Dorothy Perkins Tights: Boots Boots: Boohoo The tale of bloggers weather woes Chapter One: Well, this was not part of the plan at all – try again!
