Simple Soothing Toner

So, i bought Simple Soothing Toner about a week and a half ago and I've been trying to use at twice a day as it recommends however it hasn't been easy with being away at V festival and some early mornings. It was a bargain buy from for just £2.99 for 200ml but you can now get it on sale for £2 for the same amount.

 The amount you get, 200ml, is a fairly good size for the price considering the directions tell you to apply it generously to cotton wool. As you can see theres still a lot left after nearly 2 weeks. I apply the toner to a cotton wool pad which you can buy from anywhere that sells make up and beauty products.
I followed instructions and applied the toner generously to a cotton wool pad then wiped in gentle, upward movements. The toner is alcohol free and really kind on your skin. Even if you arent gentle, the toner doesnt cause any skin irritation or redness which is always an added bonus. Even after taking off your make up which could be only foundation or a layer of primer, foundation and blusher or other products, it manages to get that layer of dirt off that builds up on your skin.
 Its a product thats so gentle on your skin, its effective but, as recommended, needs to be used twice a day to keep your skin in good condition. I fully recommend this product and would give it a 8/10. I cant wait to try out more of their facial toners and skin products

August Bank Holiday Outfit

August Bank Holiday Outfit

Strapless dress
$46 -

AX Paris nude heels
$48 -

Nude clutch
$25 -

Charlotte Russe set of bangle

Dorothy Perkins bow ring

This would be the perfect August Bank Holiday Outfit, especially for the weather in England. Its constantly unpredictable and you would pair this outfit with an in-trend leather jacket or crocheted sleeveless jacket if it was a little cold. However its still a summery floaty look teamed with matching accessories for a day or night look.

Kardashian Kollection at Dorothy Perkins

Im actually excited about this collection coming to the UK and im hoping it stays for a good year and we can see the entires year worth of clothes. Ive been looking at the collection they have in Sears in the USA and im impressed by the underwear, they have some gorgeous pieces a lot of which i would buy. However there are a lot of generic pieces and not a lot of pieces i would associate with the style of the Kardashians. However, this is a new collection for a different country so prehaps it will be different and challenge the fashion boundaries of our county.
It will be launched in Novemeber in Dorothy Perkins stores and online.

University Wishlist

With moving away towards the end of September ive been inspired to pretty much change my entire wardrobe. Theres clothes in there i would wear all the time if i could but i dont want to do that at university. I always buy simple clothes that go with everything and are either for every day or night wear and i have the very little pieces that are statement pieces and i need more statement pieces.
 Flicking through magazines and online articles and from just everyday life ive had my eye on some killer clothes for Autumn!

Left- Right Below: Kellsin Floral Skinny Jeans, £11.99 , Jesy Tribal Seam Detail Skinny Jeans, £17.49 As seen on Nicole Richie

The entire black leather and gothic look is perfect for winter and can be worn everyday with simple pieces like a leather jacket or black glothes or dressed up at night with a wet look dress or leather trousers.
Left - Right Below: Harmony Leather Bustier Peplum Dress £28.99 , ASOS Vest with Leather Look Trim £18.00 , Cameo Rose Black PU Leggins £12.99

I dont even know where to start with shoes! With the english weather its always safe to have a little ankle boot which are lightweight and waterproof and look a lot better with your outfit then wellies! You cant go wrong with black but everyone likes something to brighten up their day dont they?

Long Lost Blog

Ive totally left my blog for dead over summer and ive truely missed it!
A lot has changed and im moving away in a months time to university in Chichester on the south coast on England. I missed the change to apply for accommodation so im moving into a house with one other girl for sure, maybe another 2 girls so theres a little 4 bedroom tudour house with my name on it!
 Ive done nothing but make a list of all the clothes i plan to buy with my student loan and the furniture im planning to buy for my room. I have the basic furniture for my double room, ie double bed wardrobe desk but i need storage for all my uni work and things i cant fit in my wardrobe. I cant wait to go out and buy it all. My new house :D
