SUMMER PRINT VIBES



Let's start off with: Why are my legs soo pale compared to my body ?!- you can obviously tell I'm a Pants/Jeans/Trousers person, the legs just never see the sunlight. Getting back to the outfit, it was extremely sunny, therefore a summer look must be done. I pulled out my most amazing and favourite shorts in my wardrobe. You've probably guessed it, It's from ZARA.

WHAT'S IN MY BAG | ZARA SHOPPER

If you've recently seen my latest fashion blog post, I've dug out my Zara Shopper bag, which I bought last year, while I will still in my 3rd at university - that seems like a while ago now :( , It was great for holding my massive 15" laptop and fitting all my A4 notepads in. Emptying it out now to do this post I feel a bit like Mary Poppins.

CURRENT FAVOURITE PERFUME - ELIE SABB L'EAU COUTURE

' L’Eau Couture, or the unique contrast between the sophistication of a Couture look and the springtime freshness of an Eau. A sophisticated and sensual freshness, contrasting with the classic repertoire of the genre. In the top notes, an armful of fresh citrus notes - Calabrian Bergamot and Magnolia - brings lightness and radiance. In the heart notes, Orange Blossom unveils the symbolic and sunny signature ingredient of the ELIE SAAB Le Parfum collection. In the base notes, delicious and crunchy Green Almond mingles with a mouth-watering Vanilla Infusion: utter addiction.' 





Bought at Christmas as a present to myself, the base notes of green almond and vanilla  drew me to the perfume, I am attracted to citrus scent and green tea, which is what L'eau Couture provides. L'eau couture has slowly moved it's way into my everyday perfume, replacing Dolce by Dolce & Gabbana, I have the 50ml gift set which includes a mini purse version for travels. Retails for £47.00

It is a great summer scent from the Spring 2014 line, which I will continue to use throughout summer.

What is your current favourite perfume? Let me know.

NAVY CHROMA

My wardrobe consists of solid earthy shades and monochromes. One of my favourite colours are navy.  Navy is a shade of dark blue, which is different compared to your classic black.

MAY BIRCHBOX 2015

You guys are probably thinking 'Another beauty box? How many is she subscribed to?'. Truth is, I am only subscribed to the BirchBox Subscription service as if never fails to impress me, and this box is no different. (All the other beauty subscribiton boxes are a one-off purchase.) If you have not heard about BirchBox you are definitely missing out in some good stuff.

In England we don't have beauty subscription services like Ipsy and BoxyCharm. And I do feel we are missing opportunities to try out different brands, however Birchbox tries to bring in brands that we have difficultly getting hold of. This for example can be the BeautyBlender which you can purchase off the Birchbox website. With BirchBox you collect points when you review products that you have tried and tested, which turns into rewards points, allowing you to purchase full size products.
