blue stripy playsuit





Firstly, apologies that these are the best quality photographs; don't get me wrong they were taken on iPhone 6s so are not by any means the worst, but my mum took them and she could not grasp the concept of how to use a DSLR camera. 
Secondly, how wonderful is this Zara Playsuit, yes it is deceiving it looks like a dress but is in fact a playsuit, which is why I love it even more. I picked this beauty up just as it went into the Sale, I had my eye on it before hand and well it was just meant to be when I could see that red sale sticker attached to the label. I've seen a few people wearing this playsuit and thought they looked amazing in it, but for some reason I didn't feel as though it would be the right choice for me. I am fairly tall and as you can see this isn't the longest playsuit I have ever worn so I have to admit I did, at first feel some what self conscious in it. Then I realised, I shouldn't care, its a playsuit, not a dress so there was no chance of me flashing my bum and I loved it so why shouldn't I wear it!? 

I spent the day exploring RHS Rosemoor gardens which was utterly beautiful and I am actually going to do a separate blog post just on the day there. So as you can see I wore this to Rosemoor, and it was perfect for such a warm summers day, wandering around acres of ground. 

I picked the playsuit up for £17.99 and when I last looked I could not find it online, however, there were some in stores so it's definitely worth checking if this is something you like. If not, there are so many very similar styles out there on asos and also Zara. the blue stripe, in oversized clothing seems to be massively in at the moment and I am totally diggin' it! I just hope that summer lasts a little longer so I can get a few more wears out of it until I plan another holiday. I teamed this playsuit with my black and white old skool vans, so a little bit of a casual look, but I have visions of it looking fabulous with a pair of espadrilles, which is the beauty of this playsuit it is so versatile. 

How do you style playsuits? 

I'm loving this blogging thing again, so I will back soon with another post, but for now I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend! x

GLAMGLOW supermud clearing treatment



It's me again! Looking somewhat scary.. well that is because I am pampering myself with a Glamglow facemask. 

I must admit I have never previously tried any of the products from Glamglow, however, they recently offered to send me a sample of one of their facemasks, which I was extremely grateful for.
They sent me the Supermud clearing treatment facemask and I was so pleased with it. Firstly for the fact it smelt so nice, unlike lots of facemask's I have previously tried, this one smelt like liquorice allsorts, which I thought was so cool.
This particular mask aims to combat common skin concerns and to help minimise pores. I'm lucky, in that, most of the time my skin is not problematic unless its that time of month (If you get what i'm saying). However, I have massive pores on my face, and I feel like this helped so much to minimise them, which I am so pleased about as I find i'm always searching for something to reduce my pores - so I will definitely be using this supermud clearing mask again!!

Glamglow suggest to leave the mask on between 5-20 minutes and I left mine on between this time and took it off when it was fully dry - it turns to a lighter grey once dry. 

I'm honestly in love with this product and now I just want to try more and more of their products, I've always heard such positive things about Glamglow and I certainly was not disappointed on this facemask. 

You can shop for this face mask here
Have you ever tried this mask? or any other favourites you have from Glamglow?

GARNIER FACE MASKS



I recently saw these new Garnier face masks in Boots and thought I had to give them a go. Well i've tried and tested them and I can safely say they are so good. I love the brand Garnier anyway and have used a variety of their products for a while, so I had no doubt that I would also love these as well. They do a couple more new face masks but I picked these three up as I thought they would be the most appropriate for my skin. 
I have to say my favourite is the Volcano mask which targets pore minimisation - I did resemble looking like an Umpa Lumpa once I had applied it though. 

I will definitely be re purchasing these I think they are nice and they are gentle on my skin too which is something I always look for in face masks. After this weekend of hot weather I think my face will definitely need the Anti-Thirst mask.

Have you tried any of these new Garnier masks? If you have which one is your current favourite?

EASTER BAKING

Hey Everyone, 

It has been an extremely long time, and well let me just say I have certainly missed blogging. However, I think I will do a complete update blog post later on, but today is going to be a fun one. 

I have been busy baking Easter Cupcakes over on my youtube channel, and I must say they taste super delicious, so chocolatey and they have cute mini eggs on top. 
I know, I am sure you are enjoying the sound of them, so I will share the recipe and photographs with you. They were super easy to make, and would have been even easier if I had an electric whisk, but alas I have just moved house, and sadly that is still something on my list of things to purchase. 




The recipe is as follows: 

For the cupcakes:
100g Plain flour
20g Cocoa powder
140g Caster Sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
40g Unsalted Butter
120ml Milk
1 Egg
1/4 tsp Vanilla extract

For the Frosting:
300g Icing Sugar
100g Unsalted butter
40g Cocoa powder


I would love to know if any of you guys decide to bake these or if you have made anything similar for easter.
