Benefit Primer Battle | REVIEW


Its only been a year since I've started to use primers under my make up, I've tried so many and nothing seemed to work until I was so fed up. Luckily I decided to stroll into Debenhams, at this point I just wanted advise and answers as my skin refused to keep any sort of product on for no longer then about two hours, if that.

#3rd festival outfit

As I am a summer baby when the season shows its head my legs are out, even though I'm not a big fan of my legs, from all the left over scaring that my eczema has so kindly left me, its quite a challenge to actually leave the house with them on display, but I've covered them up so here I am, legs out, waist out, feeling like a right dare devil today aha.

I am obsessed with these shorts, if you read my blog often you will know I am a big lover of anything high waisted and with this quirky animal print its a great match with a pain black croptop which keeps your attention on the statement shorts. 

I am trying so very hard to keep any heat off my hair and it seems to have grown quicker in my eyes...how excitng! What do you think?

*outfit details are down below*

#2nd festival outfit

It excites me to be able to pull different outfits together for a festival, but every outfit being totally different of course. As I normally wear the same thing most days (formal wear) it nice to feel festiv, with this flower pattern playsuit from Topshop you'll never hesitate to jump as high as you can in a crowd again, as your bottom will be firmly covered up, or that awkward gust of wing, no revealing of knickers. This is why I love playsuits because they are so comfy and practical too. And again with my trust worthy Hunter wellingtons its perfect to trek through deep mud to get to your favourite band/artist. then a simple black belt to tie it together.

I'm one of them girls where they have to have their hair out of their faces at all times. Its no good getting whipped by your own hair every so often and when I'm a lover of lip gossip its like a magnet to hair...hairy lips, not a good look!






 Please don't hesitate to comment away on what your festival looks are, as I'd love to know! Don't forget to follow me on Bloglovin! Thank you.

#1st Festival Outfit

Its coming round to the best time of year 'FESTIVAL SEASON', when everyone is in their squelching wellingtons, splattered in mud and not having one care in the world, a place where anything goes,  from having onsies as your attire or covered from head to toe in rave paint, its a chance to go crazy and not get judged, its a must to sing as loud as your lungs can take it and dancing like you're drank one thousand red bulls.

Crop tops and ripped shorts are a perfect way to keep cool when fighting through the mass of people, with my hunter Wellingtons my feet are going to be nice and cosy.
I choice a bright lip, giving the outfit a burst of colour it needs.

TIP: Always wear knee high socks with wellingtons when having bare legs as their will rub you and they are not afraid to cut through your skin I can promise you that! *learnt through experience* 
(outfit details listed below)








I'd love to see your festival attires?!? Please comment below what you're planning to wear at a festival you're going to or any event thats coming up! don't forget to follow me on Bloglovin! Thank you.

LIZ EARLE BOTANICAL BODY CREAM REVIEW


LIZ EARLE is a very well known brand and I've had mixed opinions about it from others. 
This is the first time I've used this brand and at first when using the Nourishing Botanical Body Cream I wasn't too sure but since I've been using it every day after I get out the shower or bath  for about 3 weeks now my skin feels significantly smoother, not sure if its because my skin is just really dry and it needs a good hydration or that it actually improves your skins health and appearance but I'm not complaining, its a great product for dry skin.

 Its great also for keeping your tan staying even after fake tanning, as I hate when my skin goes patchy, this does the trick. Well done LIZ EARLE, you have impressed me. Congrats!x

Will definable have to try more of their products out, I'm intrigued what else they can do for me, maybe a face cream/cleanser?

Holding Onto Summer!



Summer I feel is coming to an end so I wanted to do a 'Holding Onto Summer' outfit post including all charity shop purchases. I get so excited when summer comes around as most of the clothing i own are summery so I'm definitely in my element when its nice and warm, also as I can't stand being cold its a relief to step outside with out all the coats I own wrapped around me.

this blue denim dress is just so adorable, I can't believe it was only £6, I love charity shopping, so when I find purchases like this it makes me go on a hunt for more.

I love how versatile this bag is, with a long strap to go over/across your shoulder or handles to place over your arm, its great when going to town as its the perfect size to cram all my essentials in.

So as these wedged heels are originally from Topshop I was one lucky girl to find them for £5 pounds in the charity shop down the road. I still have a big smile on my face when I wear them knowing i got them for the fraction of the prize..

Its crazy to think I'm 18 next month, but I will be sure to share with you my birthday outfit! What do you think I should wear? please help me out and place all your suggestions in the comment box below!x

All the reviews on the products will be coming very soon. the day was amazingly organised, go check out my post here about how the day went for me.

- I love the ESPA bag that I received the goodies in, looks so professional and slick.

black, white and gold


well done Phoebe...just realised you can see my green bra, FAB! anyway I love this three quarter skirt from Topshop, feel like a little girl again, being able to spin around, letting it rise up like I'm about to take off, I must admit I've done it a few times, is that just me? As theres slits on either side i can't feel restrained and so my legs can breathe when its a hot summery day.

As have been back from Spain for a month now my tan has nearly gone which makes me want to cry, here comes a lot of fake tanning sessions coming my way (get ready for some orange selfies!). 

Not a big fan of horizontal stripes on me as I have curves, however for some reason this crop top is an acception and as it has long sleeves it makes me feel that little bit more confident as I am not a big fan about having my arms on show.

Pop of lime


I don't know why I'm looking so moody but I adore this playsuit from boohoo.com that arrived yesterday, i was so excited to show you, bright colours scare me but for some reason I thought I would step out my comfort zone and go for a lime green colour, not sure if it suits me or not, what do you think?
I'm not a big fan of bodycon dresses so I opted for a swing style playsuit which I'm much for comfortable in, comfort is my main priority as I'm rubbish at sucking in so I try to avoid any clothing that requires me to do so.
I matched it with these chunky black and gold buckled heeled wedges from Lime, unpredictably comfy as the plat form is massive (excuse my pale legs, I am in need of a tanning night).
fighting it all together with a black thin patent belt.

AVEDA be curly - curl enhancer review.


I've constantly been on the search for curly hair products that gives my hair moisture and defines my natural curls with an all round de-frizz, i was directed to AVEDA, with amazing reviews from their products and wanted to see for myself if they do the trick, A lovely lady at Harvey Nichols on the AVEDA counter helped me pick which one would help on hair the most, from four options I eventually went for the be curly-curl enhancer. 

I did find that it really boost my hairs condition and feel but regards to controlling of the frizz and the definition of curls I feel it lacked, as my hair is extremely thick, frizzy and curly it just doesn't get through it all. I normally have to put on 5-6 quirts of it just to calm it down slightly but then after a day it just feels greasy and looks wet. so I normally just stick to putting it in when I'm not leaving the house for the full day then rinse it off at the end and my hair always feels so soft and hydrated so that always a plus.

with the retail prize of £19. 50 I do think it was rather prizey but I do love how it makes my hair feel I am pleased i tried it out and will have to try out their be curly-style prep soon.

Optimal Skin Proserum review!


I always relate serum with a greasy substance, feeling like you've got a wet slimy face but from using the ESPA optimal skin proserum my opinion on serum has totally changed, as its proved that not all serums have to feel like you've smeared olive oil all over my face. when I get out of the shower my skin feels drained and deperately searching for a boost of hydration. Thats my pet hate, having dry tight skin! but since I've been using the ESPA optimal skin proserum I truly feel my skin looks better and definitely feels better in the way it does not felt cracked from dehydration.
