preparing for summer

The Fragrance Shop The Fragrance Shop

I'm back guys, yay! I've finally finished uni, but more of that in my next post.

I'm hitting you up with a little post on how I've been preparing for this ridiculous (and great) heatwave that we've been having in the UK over the past week, with a little help from Fragrance Direct.

Products helping me out:

1. Nars dual intensity blush : I'm not usually one to wear blush, especially in the summer when I'm permanently pink anyway but this duo can be worn much more subtly than it looks in the pan, plus it doubles as an amazing eyeshadow pair!

2. Korres peeling mask : I've not really ventured far into Korres before, but this mask might have converted me. It left my skin feeling super smooth and really hydrated, which is something I struggle with as I have particularly dry skin. I also think it's important to make sure you're treating your skin after a long day of wearing sun-creams etc!

3. Lancaster face SPF : I've always been one to use drugstore sun-creams, but you can really see the difference with this Lancaster babe. It's only SPF 10, which isn't ideal but it's good for those cloudy days in the UK, plus it's so super smooth and weightless that I've been able to layer my SPF 25 foundation over the top.

4. Nars all day weightless foundation : I try to go for a lighter coverage in the summer, mainly as I'll likely sweat it off anyway but also because when you're tanned, you usually don't need too much anyway. This Nars foundation is fairly matte but very lightweight and buildable so it's perfect for a day spent on and off the tube.

5. Clarins instant smooth self tanner : Finally, for said face tan, I'd rather fake it than burn my eyelids to a crisp so this Clarins tanner has been a godsend. My mum has actually tried to pinch it it's that good.

So they are a few products that are helping me to get prepped for this very welcome Summer we're having! Do you have any go-to products?

How tanned do my legs look here? Like I am not tanned but I am going to revel in it nonetheless. Anyway, I shot these just before this mini heatwave that we've been having and I loved wearing this get-up. 
Would you believe me if I told you this jacket was mens? I'd been after a 'shacked' of sorts for ages and spotted this in their mens department late last year and it's finally coming into its own now it's getting a bit warmer, yay.

I'm really into feminine skirts paired with vans or converse to make them super casual. In true me style, threw on an expensive handbag and I'm good to go. What do we recon?

mellow yellow

YES GUYS I'M WEARING YELLOW. Stop the press. Kidding, I absolutely love this skirt. It's categorically 'not me' but when I partnered with New Look for this post on styling some of their shoes, I knew I had to have it.

I chose some black velvet sandals that tie up the leg, and thought I'd let the skirt do the talking given that I usually do the opposite. Luckily the day I chose to wear it was a whopping 25 degrees so I couldn't have asked for a more appropriate day to wear bright yellow.

What do you think, is it a yes or no for the skirt? If you want to see it in all it's moving glory, I featured it in this video too.

Post in collaboration with New Look, all thoughts and yellow skirt feels my own.
