Beauty edit: skincare haul 2013

Hi guys, I haven't done a skincare haul in a while so here are a few of my recent buys. I am changing up my beauty routine as winter approaches and my skin encounters a few  persistent issues. I have pretty much swept most of my other facial lotions and potions off the table and will only be using these as my basic skincare go tos for the foreseeable future.

 Here are my buys...............................

B.pure Micellar water, Naturally radiant brightening hot cloth cleanser

B.pure micellar water,150 ml £4.99- I bought this 3-in-1 cleanser from Superdrug. I have heard really good things about this brand and although some beauty junkies are like miecellar water isn't a proper cleanser, I like how gentle it feels. Now on sale for an excellent £3.32. I will definitely tryout some of their other products in future.

Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser, 150ml £5.99 - A much raved about dupe of Elizabeth Arden. This is incredibly creamy and nourishing. It isn't greasy or heavy and cleansed my skin really well . It is infused with  Kiwi and Mulberry, Cocoa butter  and vitamin C, which claims to help to brighten and even out skin tone, while also providing antioxidant protection against free radicals. Now on sale for £2.98.

Naturally radiant brightening micro polish, Simple moisturisinfg foaming face wash

Naturally Radiant Brightening Micro Polish, 75ml £4.99 - Dermatologically approved and suitable for vegetarians and vegans, this polish is incredibly fine and non abrasive. It claims to be Kiwi, Mulberry and fruit acids which aid exfoliation and skin brightening. A excellent buy and now £2.48

Simple moisturising foaming face wash, 150ml £3.59 - Renowned for their simplicity and lack of nasties. The dermatologically approved face wash helps keep skin soft and supple. It is soap free (yay) and pH balanced and creamy foam formulation gently cleanses, moisturises and improves skin condition. 100% perfume and colour free.I haven't used Simple face washes in ages but I really do think this is a right move for me.

Naturally radiant 2 in 1 moisturiser and serum, L'oreal youth code youth booster serum
Superdrug Naturally Radiant 2 in 1 Moisturiser & Serum, 100ml £5.99- Now £2.98. This claims to do 2 things:
  1. Awaken skin's natural glow
  2. Hydrate & energise
It has a light creamy consistency but is not watery. A little goes a long way. 

L'oreal Youthcode youth booster serum, 30ml £7.65 - Fairly silky light consistency the serum is 10 times more concentrated in the patented Pro-Gen® technology than the Youth Code Day Cream. 
 It claims to give an instant boost of youthfulness and luminance . I actually managed to get mine from eBay which is why it is so cheap and cheerful.

L'oreal Luminize code

L'oreal Luminize code day moisturiser, 50ml £7.49. This is another one of my Ebay finds *dougies*. You can also share in my discount joy as this is currently £7.49 at Superdrug! Say wooot?! Yeh I know I may have to go and repurchase everything while the discount times roll.

 So that's me y'all I had a few other things to include but those are online buys and haven't arrived yet so meh.
With all of these sales going on I feel like I was slightly robbed! Even though they weren't expensive buys lol. Its the bargain hunter in me roaring at the injustice! My eBay bargains more than make up for it.

I shall be doing a review /skin diary post in the next few weeks once I have used all of them for a while. Look out for it in future.

An autumn wedding: Guest outfit

Second family wedding of the year woop!
 It was my brother and beautiful wife's wedding last week Saturday, it was such a nice day and the food and drinks most definitly did  runneth over. I am still eating leftovers. Flash backs of champagne and rum still haunt me lol.

Excuse my shoes they took a beating on the dance floor lol

I kept it simple once again in a lace skater ombre dress from ASOS
My shoes were mink and bronze metallic capped flat pumps from Topshop (last year)
Aztec geo print kimono from Forever21 (last year)
Conical studded clutch bag from Matalan (last year)
Earrings from Dorothy Perkins

I think floral is definitely a wedding  event theme for me this year, check out my sisters wedding here

My nephew and I

They hired a photo booth and its safe to say my nephew spent a good amount of time posing and popping his collar. Fly boy lol. Excuse my Miley tongue moment-rum chronicles!

I went for a simple 50's bombshell look:
Hair- Pin up roll bangs
Face-  Fashionista primer (t-zone application)
Sleek be beautiful blemish balm, Sleek face contour kits, 
  Japanese gel eyeliner 
E.L.F highlighter
Lips- Mac Ruby Woo
Cheeks-  Mac sheertone Pinch o'peach

Once again I didn't have enough time to take as many snaps as I would have liked as I was helping my mum cook food for the evening buffet before and helping on the day. I won't put up their whole day as that is for them to decide and distribute.

But here are a few snaps.

Off the grid: fashion AW/13

As we dive into  AW13 it seems we are having a second love affair with grids. Plaid and monochrome is always a autumn/ winter staple and this year is no different. Why not combine the 2 and pick up a transitional grid print piece if you haven't already? Try clashing with other prints or rocking with neons.
