Midi Dresses

I'm really loving midi dresses at the moment, but I'm a rather unfortunate height and tend to find them either too short or too long!  Anyway here's some of my current picks and a few things to go along with them;

And a few wee things to go along with a nice dress;

  • Zara Bracelet Clutch - I think this is gorgeous, and a great idea to have a bracelet instead of a handle, I'm not a huge fan of wee bags but I really like this.
  • ASOS Helnley Heeled Sandals - Love these but I'm not brave enough to wear them!
  • MAC Hue - Shock horror I don't any own MAC lipsticks!  I think this will be my first though!

Until next time amigos, thanks for reading,

No7 Beautiful Skin Foaming Cleanser

Hi folks today I'm reviewing the No7 Beautiful Skin Foaming Cleanser for Normal and Oily Skin.  Now this is becoming a bit of a trend but this is another of those so called holy grail products for me.  I believe this cleanser has made such a difference to my skin it's unreal.  I recently invested in the No7 Expert Face Brush (Clarisonic dupe!) but wasn't sure I was getting the most out of it from the cleanser I was using, so I went for a mooch about Boots and saw they recommend you use the brush with this, or their gel cleanser.

"The No7 Beautiful Skin Foaming Cleanser gently removes make-up and impurities and tightens pores – delivering in one step the same results other regimes offer in two – to leave skin clean, refreshed and feeling fabulous."

Now for once all of this is very true.  I really didn't like the sound of this at first but it lathers beautifully into an almost liquid like state and a tiny little pump goes along way.  This removes all my make up really well, even eye make up, and is super gentle on the skin and eyes.  I have definitely noticed my skin is majorly less oily and all in all my skin has improved a massive amount since I started using this.

This is just one pump and it is more than enough to cover your entire face.  I don't always use this with my expert face brush but either with that or on it's own it works wonderfully.  I also think £9 is really reasonable for such a good product and even better if you have No7 vouchers.  All in all I don't see me being without this for a long time and urge anyone out there with oily skin to give it a go!

Thanks for reading :)

Recent Purchases..

Hey folks, sorry been a wee while, been working hard!  I'm off to Amsterdam next week for a few days for my besties birthday so I will be quiet next week.  In the mean time here's what I've been spending my dosh on this week..


Beautysets - recently bought

  • Disco Pants - Fear not, I do not plan on paring these with a crop top or anything of the sort! haha I really wish I was skinny enough to pull these off with a tee, but alas I will be wearing them will a long jumper.
  • Utility Jacket - I was actually looking on the NL site to find someone else I'd recently bought to include here when I came across this!  I recently bought a parka but it's really heavy and we'll be doing some trekking in the Dam so hopefully this will do the job.
  • Serotonin Necklace - I LOVE LOVE LOVE this!  I'd been after one of these for a while but all the ones I'd seen were pretty pr icy so I cannot wait for this to be delivered.  Hoping to make up in fashion what I lack in the brain ;)
  • Ribbed Skater Dress - Bought this for a night out yesterday and I really like it, I think the ribbed is flattering and it's nips in lovely at the waist!

Thanks for reading, as always would love to know what you think :)
