Look in most peoples wardrobes and there is at least one puffer jacket. Ranging from £1000s to only £10s there are puffers for everyone.
Top of the range is Moncler and Canada Goose.
Puffer jackets are comfortable, lightweight and so so practical. Theres nothing easier to throw on. I own one from Zara and one from River Island, however most high street stores will stock these jackets because the trend is still so IN! They’re easy to get and affordable…usually unless you want to skin yourself £500+ for a designer number.
Celebrities are always rocking the puffer jackets and as Vogue featured in their article, it is really really popular in cities like New York.
Usually puffer jackets are worn the other way around but Cara Delevingne as we know likes to be different…
In my opinion, the best place to go and grab a nice puffer jacket is definitely Zara where they may range in price but you are always guaranteed a good quality jacket.
These jackets are even appearing on the Runway for Spring in London Fashion Week and NY fashion week where celebs such as Kendal Jenner show us how they wear the look.
Let me know what you think about the puffer jacket and if you own one!
I ALWAYS carry a handbag, and it ALWAYS has the same things in it. My essentials.
Number one is dry shampoo. I always carry Batiste Dry Shampoo in Brilliant Blonde, retailing for £3.99 in Boots. This product comes in a shade for every basic hair colour and I apply it constantly as it gives my hair a fresh boost of volume and makes it look freshly washed 24/7.
Secondly, is a lippy. This varies by how I feel but today I have Rouge Dior in shade 060 Premier, retailing at £26.50. This lipstick lasts ages whilst also giving an almost lipgloss like glow. For this very reason I bought it because I love the colour of lipstick but the shine of a gloss and this combines both perfectly.
Another product I feel is a must is perfume. Perfume is a personal choice however my favourite is Gucci Flora, retailing in Debenhams from £49-£60 depending on size. This fruity perfume has been my favourite for ages and I can not get enough of it. I think for christmas I got a yearly supply because my entire family know I am literally obsessed!
Make-up wipes. Always. Its a necessity! You never know when you will have a disaster where you need to wipe off and re-start, nothing worse than big black panda eyes. Even when I am having a make-up free day, it is definitely nice to refresh your face sometimes. I use the Johnsons for all skin types, they smell AMAZING, honestly they are a must try!
So everyone associates water with health. My mum is always telling me to drink more and rightly so because I don’t drink enough water.
For this blog post I spent a whole week drinking water only and if I am honest, I have never felt better for it. Now I know when people say ‘drink more water its good for you’ they’re actually telling the truth, so listen!
First thing I noticed straight away was that I felt better, I felt lighter and almost never hungry. Since I was drinking so much water I wasn’t craving junk and therefore eating less and healthier. This experience has actually taught me that I eat when really I am just thirsty.
Skin- This was a big one for me, having a rather un-even skin tone on my face I never thought something like just drinking water would help but it has. My tone is more even all over and my skin feels much more plump and dewy. I feel much less need to slap on loads of make up and I actually have enjoyed going bare faced.
Hair- Now to notice a huge change in the hair you would probably need to drink only water for more than a week, however I felt my hair looking freshly washed much longer than when drinking fizzy juices. This is because the sugars in other drinks are not overly good for you and can make hair appear greasy and heavy. Drinking water would definitely improve both the appearance and feel of hair.
Thats the basics of it. This tan is fantastic. I am used to fake tans smelling horrible, going on streaky and leaving my white bed sheets COVERED in brown smudges. But no, this is does none of these things.
The fact this product is an oil at first scared me slightly as whenever I think of putting oil on my skin all I can think is ‘BLOCKED PORES’ but it goes on so smoothly. I applied this tan with the Skinny Tan mitt which is pictured below which is so so soft. Before doing so I rubbed my elbows and knees with the exfoliating mitt that Skinny Tan also offer. These patches can be dry and therefore patchy but by exfoliating first it applied very evenly. Legs are my main focus when going out and I often feel they can look orange and un natural, however this tan although dark, looked more like I had been abroad for a few weeks rather than I had rolled my legs in cheesy wotsits which I’m sure along with myself is many girls worst fear with tan.
I think fake tan was a fantastic invention as it is a safe way to tan and instantly feel more confident. Skinny Tan have just doubled my opinion of how fab fake tan is due to the fact they have done everything right. They also pride themselves on using natural ingredients and following many celeb endorsements they have rammed their way into the already crowded market and given themselves a constant space.

This month Vogue has released its 2017s beauty trends. One of these which caught my eye was ‘clear skin’. This means either no make up or very little so the skin looks dewey and fresh or ‘clean’ as they put it.
Now I love having a day where I can get up and skip the make up routine giving my skin a rest, however these days are rare we like many girls and women they feel naked without their make up on. Yes if I had flawless, tanned skin I would ditch the make up and have a natural day everyday, but I don’t and this is where natural looking make up comes in very handy.
My natural make up routine consists of cleansing the skin thoroughly then applying moisturiser to each cheek and my forehead. Before this has sank in I quickly apply my foundation, the one closest to my skin tone. Whilst applying it quickly over my moisturiser it gives a sort of damp look which to me makes it look very natural! Eyebrows, I brush them out and add only a bit of wunderbrow to darken them but I don’t shape them. This again gives the appearance of natural brows. For eyes, minimum is the best for a natural look. I dust my lid with the shade ‘naked’ from urban decay which is a nude and add only a lick of mascara to separate the lashes slightly.
Although you may think is it even worth applying that little make up? The answer to that is to me, yes definitely.
So is clear skin for the win? I think so. My version of clean skin suits me but for those who feel confident with no make up on, even better!!
I was very excited to try out this product as I have seen it so many times on the shelves in boots and always meant to buy to try. Priced at £10 from boots, it is reasonably priced and the packaging gives a very upmarket and expensive feel to the product
After reviewing this, I found I had many many uses for it. It is AMAZING!
I used this at first as part of my facial cleansing routine in the morning and at night. Firstly I would cleanse and tone my face with Chanel Cleansing Milk and toner then spritz my skin with the water spray. As you may see from the picture it is for sensitive skin which is prefect for me as I tend to find certain facial products can make me break out. After doing this for only one week I do feel my skin is much softer and less irritable. A HUGE thumbs up from me.
Next I tried this product during my application of make-up. During my contouring I decided to wet the face and the cream with the water before starting to blend. This made a massive difference when doing this as my brush strokes were not visible on my face which makes the application look completely flawless.
All in all I thought this product was fantastic! It is full of health benefits due to its hydrating and calming properties and also great during make-up application. It smells of nothing and even if it was just to cool you down on a hot day, I would highly recommend this product to all people of all ages. You will definitely find a use for it! 5*
Many will probably look at the title of this post and think I’ve stared making up words, but I haven’t, promise! In fact Vogue featured a whole article dedicated to people wearing athletic wear as fashion statements. I for one know how easy it is when you are feeling extremely lazy to throw on a pair of exercise leggings and a glam hoodie (bit of sparkle = GLAM) with a pair of Nike trainers and call it ‘fashion’ however in 2016 the trend has been taken to a new extreme.
Shops like have bought into this hugely by partnering with Beyoncé to create a line of ‘exercise’ wear that they stock in every shop.
The brand is depicted outside showing that Beyoncé is being active. However the ad very much focuses on the clothes and when looking at the picture all I can think is “wow I’d love to be a slob in those leggings, they look comfy” which is probably not what the advert is trying to achieve.
Loads of celebrities have taken on this fashion trend, such as Gigi Hadid but she doesn’t look like a slob at all!

Now the main question is, should this trend be left in 2016 along with the trends such as shoelace choker necklaces? I vote no. Its comfy, you LOOK like you exercise AND it doesn’t involve much of an effort to pull out your wardrobe in the morning and throw together. It’s a win all around, but please have your say, leave a comment below with what you think!
