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.

No Ordinary Co Ordinates...

Hello lovelies!

Just over two weeks to go until Lent is over...  thankfully! Why you ask? Well I thought it would be a bright idea to give up wine for Lent. WHAT was I thinking?? Anyone who knows me knows how much I love my wine, but since the festive season, the pounds had crept on and I had gotten all to comfortable with indulging at the weekend rather than actually enjoying it so I thought Lent was a perfect opportunity to give the wine a break and I have to say it has nearly broke me!! My pants dont feel any looser and I am cranky! Ok, so I have saved money, certainly do not miss hangovers and I am quite proud of myself that I have lasted! Apart from a vodka and soda here and there and a glass of prosecco on Mothers Day, a glass of wine has not passed my lips. I go to Tuscany for Easter and what better place to have a glass of wine after a 7 week abstinence than in wine paradise?? Roll on Italy!


Me enjoying a glass of prosecco on Mothers Day, I look so happy!

Ok, enough about the wine talk! I wanted to show you all some fantastic coordinate pieces I have picked up this week. I am in love with coordinates! I think they are the ultimate versatile piece/pieces. You can wear them as separates,casual,or dressy. There are multiple looks to be pulled off with a coordinate suit set.

So the first one I will show you is this one from Primark, I spotted it a couple of weeks ago and I fell in love,. as I was in Glasgow for Mothers Day I popped in and found that they had my size and the shorts had been reduced to less than half price! I love when that happens with something you have had your eye on,dont you?


Jacket £19 Shorts were £12 now £5.

I  just love the Chanel-esque vibe of this little suit, from the boucle fabric to the frayed edges and vibrant colour clash, amazing for the £24 price tag eh??




I am going to wear this with thick black tights and flat pumps now and bare legs and wedges in the summer!

My next purchase was also a bargain, (as you may begin to recognise from my posts, I am a bargain queen,lol!)The latest purchase is from Matalan, I popped in whilst killing time and was drawn as always to the sale sign.... They had some gorgeous bargains to be had but I gravitated to this gorgeous print.



This stunning top and peg trousers look fab on and there was also a great duster coat available in this print, however I felt the style didnt suit me however the style of the top is really flattering. Not that I would wear all of the pieces together, I was either going to get the top and trousers or the jacket and trousers paired with a black top underneath to break it up, but I loved the combo of the top and trousers on, they look together like a jumpsuit but have the perk of also being able to wear them as seperates! They are in a super comfy crepe fabric.







I also picked up these velvet jewelled pumps that were also reduced less than half price from £15 to £7! #bargainqueen





What do you think of my recent purchases? Do you dare to wear print from head to toe?? Comment below!

Love,

Sarah.

FOTD/Fave Lip Combo Right Now.

Hello Honeys!

I thought I would share with you my fave lip products right now for creating a gorgeous pinky coral shade. You can watch the Instagram video of the application here.



Firstly I lined my lips with KIKO lipliner in Ace of Spades
Then I applied Luxe Lips from MUA in Serene, a lovely matte, highly pigmented baby pink.
I then finished with a coat of MAC Lipglass in Stoke the Fire.



Here is the overall look, I used two different shades of pink blush to contour the cheek, applying the darker shade on the lower part of the cheek bone and the lightest pink along the top.


Lots of Love,

Sarah.

Denim Delights.

Hello All!
Denim has always been a staple piece in everyone's wardrobe but denim has never been so relevant than this season. Its a huge trend for Spring/Summer and the high street has such a great selection of pieces right now.
Here are my top picks.


This denim cami is so sweet and a steal at only £6, it will look great in warmer weather with white jeans and a bright blazer. Primark/£6.


This is a truly versatile piece whilst tapping into the denim trend. Wear with tights now and bare legs for summer. ASOS/£20.


I love the boxy shape of this denim shirt, wear it open thrown over a tube dress or dare to go double denim with jeans!


Love these high waisted denims from Boohoo, ripped denim is a huge trend right now, they look great dressed up with block heels like in the picture or dressed down with flats. £20.




This denim dress is a super flattering style with a tie waist and knee length. Its a gorgeous piece that you can wear again and again as it is so versatile. Wear it now with leggings and boots and with bare legs and wedges in summer, it also works well as a cover up worn open with the belt detached. New Look, £24.99.

Which denim piece is your favourite? There are so many wearable styles at great prices that can be worn again and again there is no reason not to treat yourself! 

Comment below!

Lots of Love,

Sarah.

Primark Haul

Hello Everyone!

Hope you are all doing great, only one more day until the weekend! As Wednesday is my hubby's day off it is usually a day we spend together whether its shopping, going for lunch or working out, yesterday we did all three!I have only started weight training again and believe me when I say I CANNOT move today!

Whilst in Glasgow yesterday I nipped into the huge Primark there as I haven't been there in a while and I was needing a Primark fix!! I mooched around the accessories section and was blown away by their jewellery range, I am loving fine, delicate jewellery right now and they had lots of beautiful pieces. Here is what I got...



You cannot have too many pretty studs for every day wear, I love these, I am a stickler for wearing silver with silver and gold with gold so I like to have variety! CZ Squares/ £2. Gold Balls/ £1



Loving these delicate chokers, they have adjustable lengths so you can wear them altogether at different lengths for that cool multi layered look that's in right now. £3.

Of course you can wear them alone also.


 I also got these midi rings, they are so pretty! £2


Lovely on, apologies for the nails they are badly needing done!


How beautiful are these?? They look so much more expensive than their £3 pricetag!

 
Mixing it up with my Cartier bangle.








I also picked up this stunning pastel blue clutch it also has a chain shoulder strap so it will work really well for daytime also. Again, it looks so much pricier than its £6 price tag!


I also picked up this boat neck striped top which I love, I will wear it with dark denims rolled up at the ankle with a stiletto shoe for a sexy beatnik look. £6.


Not forgetting my little princess, I also picked up these in the sale from the kids section.




I just love this crochet detail top and I really love lemon and white on little girls for spring, we are spending Easter in Tuscany so I will put this by for then, I hope to pick up either lemon or white jeans to match. This top was only £3!!


Seriously, how cute are these?? I wish they came in adult size! These little pumps were only £4! My leopard print obsession has rubbed off on my daughter, she loves them.

What do you think of my Primark purchases? Do you love a Primark spree like me?

Lots of love,

Sarah.
