REVIEW: BOMB COSMETICS

Bomb Cosmetics * 


So I gave this little cutie ago the other day, I must say they are too pretty to use! I think they look fab just dotted around my room and they make it smell great however I've been meaning to review them so I popped it into my bath the other night. It fizzes a little and starts to dissolve slowly in the water.

It makes the water really soft and creamy, you can feel the moisturisers in the product on your skin. There is oil in the product aswell as I could see an oily consistancy on my skin aswell. My skin felt very moisturised.

I love bath products like this and think they make bath time abit more fun! I have showers most the time so they make bath time special. I have a couple of products from Bomb Cosmetics to try out so expect some more reviews. I'm really impressed so far as they are a really affordable brand and have a wide variety of products!

REVIEW: THE BODY SHOP MANGO BODY SORBET

 BODY SORBET IN MANGO - £8* - THE BODY SHOP 




I've been using this Mango Body Sorbet since I got back off holiday! I had really dry skin towards the end of my holiday and my after sun wasn't really doing much. So when I got home and this was waiting for me it was great! I put some on straight away. The formula is nice and thick but it dries into the skin so quick and easy! The smell is amazing!! I love orangy- citrusy smells so I basically love everything in The Body Shop!  You don't have to use alot of product, a little goes a long way. I've been using it everyday for two weeks and i've used about 1/4 of the bottle. It's a decent 200ml bottle which retails at only £8. I think this is a bargain for this product, its a lovely product that smells amazing and actually works. My skin feels full of moisture straight away. I haven't peeled since I got back where as I did when I was away and using the aftersun.

This is a really nice product that I would buy again, i've already got my eye on the strawberry version which smells gorgeous aswell! If you spend over £25 online you get free delivery and remember to always check out your voucher apps because they always have amazing vouchers for The Body Shop!

OUTFIT POST : JOLIE MOI PLEATED DRESS



Dress: Jolie Moi* // Belt: Primark // Bag: Peacocks // Sandals*: Office c/o House of Fraser






 Here's another holiday outfit post. I'm so glad I brought this dress on holiday because it looked so nice. It was really comfy and I teamed it with some monochrome accessories.

Its a nice long length at the back, which was perfect since I always find chairs on holiday at bars or restaurants uncomfortable. And then its short at the front and pleated. Its a nice black colour meaning you could wear it with anything, its very versatile.

I kept wearing my hair down but back by having a french plait across the front of my hair. This kept my hair out of my face and stopped me getting all hot. This is a great summer hair style, I even popped it up into a bun a few times aswell

REVIEW : IBASS CONNECT SPEAKER


IBASS CONNECT - THUMBS UP WORLD *



I was kindly sent this speaker just before my holiday, this was perfect timing and we brought it along with us. It fitted easily in my bag and because it just uses a standard fitting to charge we didn't have to worry about bringing any other cables. Its nice and light and attractive (as far as speakers go)
I like that its white because it matches my phone. The sound is really loud and clear.
It has a rubber bottom so it doesn't vibrate off the table! It was perfect for the holiday because its so lightweight and easy to use! I will be using it at home whilst we are out in the garden or when you go on days out to the park or camping etc! I've been using it in my room to listen to music whilst I get ready!

This is such a lovely handy product and it retails at only £49.99 which for a decent speaker isn't too bad!

OUTFIT POST: SUNSET WEARING TOPSHOP NEON DRESS



DRESS: TOPSHOP // NECKLACE : RINGS AND TINGS* // BAG: TOPSHOP // SANDALS: PRIMARK // BRACLETS: ASSORTED 







Clint took these photos when we were on holiday! We spotted the sunset and thought we would have a little play. Some of the photos were so bad! It was actually quite windy so there was hair everywhere haha. We managed to get a few that I could use :) I love this dress I got it a couple of years ago in the sale! Its a lovely neon coral colour. I love skater style dresses as they are so comfy but also work well with my hourglass figure. I picked up this bag this year in the topshop sale, I didn't really need it but I loved it so grabbed it and I used it sooo much on holiday, I actually stopped using it because i'd brought like 5 other bags and decided I had to use them at least once. 

REVIEW: OLIVIA BURTON WONDERLAND DUSTY PINK AND GOLD WATCH


OLIVIA BURTON WATCH - £65* 




I recently got some shopping vouchers and decided I wanted to buy myself something special and worthwhile rather than wasting them on clothes or make up. I thought a new watch would be a good investment and i'd had my eye on an Olivia Burton watch for a while so I headed to the Goldsmiths Boutique in Birmingham Bullring where they had quite a good selection of different Olivia Burton watches. I really love the ones with pretty floral faces and the butterfly ones however I knew I wanted to go for a more classic style that I could wear everyday! I was stuck between this version and the black version but I went for the dusty pink as I think it looks really lovely on and it's still a neutral. I really liked the black version but after some help from the lovely sales assistant we all decided the pink was more me :)

This version retails at £65 which I think for a designer watch is a bargain, Olivia Burton is still a new fresh brand, they have some amazing vintage style watches in their collection and their watches are available at Selfridges, Asos and as I said before Goldsmiths Boutique! They are going to be BIG!.





*I was gifted some shopping vouchers and used these to buy my watch I wasn't sent the vouchers by Olivia Burton and have not been asked to review my watch. My opinions are my own and I have expressed this above.
