Birthday/Anniversary Outfit

Hello!!

Thought I would show you a wee summery outfit I wore last night, for my 3rd wedding anniversary and my little girls 6th Birthday! We got married on her 3rd birthday and I can't believe how time flies!! 

Summers 3rd Birthday at our wedding..


 

We got married in Florence and I wish I could do it all over again!!

Any way, I was spoiled by my hubby and got a replica bouquet from our wedding day centrepieces! So sweet, 


I was delighted when these arrived!


I also got a beautiful necklace with a little diamond for each year! 


We just went to Frankie and Bennys and then to see the new Minions Movie, we will celebrate our wedding anniversary properly this weekend as we wanted Summer to enjoy her birthday. 

Here is what I wore..


 

Would you believe this dress is £5 from Primark! I just love the colour! I decided to colour pop a bit and added fuchsia accessories, the bag is parfois and the shoes are from a boutique in Portugal.

 

Me and the gorgeous birthday girl were kinda matching!! 


It really was a lovely night, can't believe I have a six year old!! ❤️

Love Sarah.

Wednesday OOTD

Hello lovelies!!

We are half way through the week, thankfully! On a Wednesday my hubby has a half day from work so we usually go for lunch or take a trip into Glasgow, today we did both. 

Here's what I wore...


Jacket and Top/ Primark
Boyfriend Jeans/ F&F @ Tesco
Boots/Asos
Bag/ DKNY
Belt/Next

I also tied this Leopard print scarf from Primark around my head as a head band!



There's a lot of leopard lovin goin on! I love adding print to an otherwise simple jeans and tee combo, I rolled up the cuffs of these boyfriend jeans to show a cheeky bit of ankle!! 

We went for lunch to Soho on Miller Street in Glasgow. 

I got arincini to start...


 
I was a bit disappointed when they came as they were freezing cold in the middle, but they apologised profusely and replaced them with an extra ball! 



Next I had a Turkey Club Baguette which was nice but there was a slight mayo overload! My hubby got the pizza and it was yum!!

The cocktails were delicious also, I got a lemon concoction which was lovely.



Cheers! Have a great Wednesday! 


Love

Sarah

Must Have Primark Summer Buys!!

Here are my top Primark picks! 

1.
I am simply loving this quirky bag which looks way more expensive than it £12 price tag! Wear as a cross body bag to jazz up a simple jeans and tee outfit.

2. 
Summer wouldn't be Summer without a pair of denim cut offs! Dress them up with wedges, dress them down with trainers, pair with tights when it gets chilly, a must have versatile piece, £10.

3.
These watercolour floral print pumps are just divine! Add a summery twist to jeans or wear them with an LBD for a pop of colour! £14.

4.

I am truly loving this neon embroidered kimono, another multi wearable piece, use as a beach cover up, or wear with denim cut offs and boots for festival vibes.£16.

5.

Keep hair off your face whilst at the pool with this gorgeous beaded headband, it will add colour and style to any look! £6.

6.


 A day to night dress for a fiver?? Wow! This little cotton sun dress is comfortable enough for sightseeing during the day with flats to enjoying refreshments at the bar with wedges and hold accessories!

7.
Loving this tribal inspired statement necklace, rock an avant garde look by the pool and wear with your swimsuit! £8.

Makeup Revolution


Hey lovelies!! 

I recently came across Makeup Revolution in Superdrug. Attracted by the sleek packaging and wide product range in an array of colours I picked up a few products, here is what I got... 

I picked up two eyeshadow palettes, a lippie, concealer palette and a face primer. 

I love the eyeshadow palettes which were great value at £4! The pigment is good, some more pigmented than others in a mix of matte and shimmery textures, here I am wearing some of the more neutral shades, 


The concealer palette is really creamy which leads to quite a blend able application for a seamless finish. I got the shade Medium/Light I would say the coverage is light/medium maybe not perfect for extreme coverage but great to  subtly even out skin tone. 


The lipsticks are super quality at only £1 each!!! 
I picked up this gorgeous mauve-y pink shade. 

 
The primer is silky soft, it blends seamlessly into the skin, leaving a silky soft matte finish and creating a perfect base for foundation. 

Overall I would say I am pretty impressed with this brand, it's not the highest quality product line I've tried but in terms of selection and price it's great value for money.

Autograph (M&S) Tan Review




The other day whilst on a shopping trip to Glasgow I came across the new M&S tan from their autograph range, I'm a bit of a tan-aholic so I decided to try it plus the description 'velvet touch lotion' appealed to me, I chose the medium to dark shade. 

This is me before application.... So very pale! 

Ok so speaking of the application I found the consistency really thick and this made it quite difficult to spread so you needed to use quite a lot to get an even blend. The guide colour was a nice golden brown and it smelled really pleasant, no biscuit tan smell! 

Here is me after application.. 

Legs after application. 

 Yesterday I didn't look particularly glam as I only worked from home and then went to the gym, so you can see what it looks like after being washed off, (I truly was not glam, especially since I accidentally put my training leggings on inside out!!) 
I have to say I wasn't overly impressed with this tan, it washed off to leave a medium golden tan which surprised me as the consistency was so thick and dark, I wouldn't say the tan develops deeper, you are pretty much left with the guide colour, I like my tan quite dark so this is why I was a little disappointed. However, it smells great snd really did wash off to leave an even tan, also, it was a great price and M&S have 20% off their tanning range right now so I got it for £6 something, I would probably give this tan 6/10. 

What tan do you swear by? Comment below!

How I Get My Glow..

Hey lovelies!! So yesterday I posted a pic on my Facebook page of my makeup look of the day and a few of you commented and messaged me to ask what I used to get the look so here are the details of the products used.


Right now my skin is really dry with too many blemishes to count!! I think the air conditioning and sun in Italy is to blame! Unlike what you might think I like to adopt a less is more approach to makeup application when my skin is tired and lackluster, the key is to use illuminating moisturising products that will enhance your skin whilst giving it a moisturising boost.Quite often, if you try to pile on more makeup to cover up imperfections, it can look cakey which then tends to draw attention to the areas you are trying to cover up in the first place... not good! 


This is such an amazing product! It moisturises, evens skin tone, contains SPF and anti oxidants, It also comes in different formulations depending on your skin type and is a purse friendly price, love,love,love!! This is a great product to use on holidays also as its lightweight and gives skin a gorgeous dewy glow.


For me as it was the weekend, I wanted a tad extra coverage so I mixed a little of Max Factors Skin Luminizer with the BB Cream to create a medium coverage, dewy base. This foundation is one of my faves right now and one I must havee in my kit at all times. You can read about it in my previous post here.

Then I swept some Bronze Glow from Collection 2000 along my cheekbones, down the bridge of my nose and along my forehead for the ultimate glow.




For a pop of colour I applied Mac's Dollymix blush which also has a slight sheen to it.


So there you have it, the products I use to get healthy glowing looking skin, even when its not, what do you think? Comment below.....

Love,

Sarah.
