Oh hello, June, where did you come from?  Seriously how is it June already? I'm going to try and make the most of summer this year - despite everything else being rubbish. I'm going to enjoy myself and have fun in the sun. Sound like a good plan, doesn't it? ⠀

Oh hello, June, where did...

I must admit that I did get bored with balcony/mirror outfit pictures and wanted a more nature/organic photos backdrop. Well now summer is right around the corner, and the sun is indeed shining, and with news that lockdown resections are now easing, I now thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out into the wood and show you this floral Zara dress.⠀
I brought this dress at the very beginning of this year and was keen to show you guys this as I think it a lovely summer dress to wear, plus, I also thought it would go nicely with my red hat.⠀
For someone who has been cooped up, I must admit that it was nice to go into my local woodland and to walk around for an afternoon. I think it was also lovely for Richard, my husband, to pick up his camera again and to take some photos. The whole pandemic has put a pause on his professional photographer profession, and he hasn’t needed to use his camera much.⠀
It was lovely to put on a dress and to make myself look a little presentable. It got me out of my loungewear for an afternoon. The experience made me feel a little more like myself, and it put me in a good mood. As much as I like comfy loungewear, I’m still someone who wants to dress up.⠀
I’m hoping I can go out more this summer, of course still observing the social distancing rule, and doing more outdoor outfit photos. I’m also hoping this summer to wear more of my summer outfit and to feel more like myself.⠀

Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

Bad Beauty Products That I Didn’t Like

While I always try and put a positive spin on beauty beauty products that I often feature on here, there a few I will run into that I just didn’t like. What I mean by that is often I will try out a beauty product and it doesn’t exactly gel with me or would give me the desire effect, it could be the smell that would put me off it or it could be too greasy for my liking or does nothing and was a waste of money.  Here are a few recent selections off beauty products that was big no no for me.

bad beauty products 001

 

1. Max Factor Miracle Touch Liquid Illusion Foundation: This one is only a big no no from me as the colour (a natural 70) doesn’t go with my face complexion, it make me look a very burnt tan colour when I applied this on as  it doesn’t go with the rest of my pale skin. It also not the easiest to apply either – the sponge that comes with it was a small thing and you often have to blend it with your fingers or with a spare sponge.

2. Lush Skin Drink Facial Moisturiser: A period late last year my skin on my face went really dry – I mean cracking up dry, I have red eczema on the side of my face; It wasn’t a good look. Me being a natural lushies and loving all things Lush I thought I would turn to them. The positive side that it did get rid off my eczema but left my face feeling really greasy. It even said on the bottle ‘without feeling greasy’ then what did I do wrong? I applied this once before work and I ended up getting a tissue and removing it as it didn’t really sink in to my skin but just left my face feeling greasy. Now this could only be me that had this problem but I wasn’t impressed, Lush how could you let me down!

3. Ulittle Beauty Natural Self-Tan: I have already reviewed this before on here  but just to remind myself why this is included, the smell and the uneven tan effect that will make you look like a zebra. I don’t think I will ever use this again.

4. Simple Perfecting BB Beauty Balm: As I was saying earlier about having bad eczema and dry skin before christmas this was another product I thought I would try as I love the Simple range loads! Ok the fault of this balm could have been me as  I might  have read the package wrong but when squeeze out you get a brownie/orangie gel liquid, when applied on skin you get an almost covers like a foundation – huh this isn’t what I wanted! I will say the positive is that it does smell nice and can make your skin sparkle (yes really). However I brought this for my dry skin – not to add some foundation layer on my face.

5.Topshop Nails Art Pen: These are nothing but a waste of money, they have never worked or done anything for my nails, I also heard these dried up pretty quickly. I was disappointed with these as I wanted to do polka dots on my nails.

6. The No Name Spot Cover-up: This doesn’t have a name as I have lost the original packaging a long time ago but the idea off this is to help you cover your spots or blemish you want to hide. This doesn’t really cut it for me as it doesn’t cover the spot – if anything they make it more obvious! Hmm another product that I will be throwing in the bin.

So there you have it folks, have you tried any of these products? Give your comments/feedback in the box below.
