Beaut.ie Street Style Competition

Khaki Parka, Miss Selfridge Denim Button Up Skirt, Black Poloneck

Hello there! I hope you are all having a lovely week and now have that incomparable Friday feeling lingering in your head! Just a quick post today – I need your help! I’ve entered the Beaut.ie Spring Street Style competition and need your votes to potentially win a trip to New York! The look I chose features my favourite purchase so far this Spring/Summer 2015 season, my Miss Selfridge denim button through skirt, as well as my old reliable khaki parka from Primark. I recently featured the above look on The Mix and Match (read the full post here) and got a great response, so decided to take the plunge, put myself out on a limb and enter the competition!

So, if you dig my street style look, I would be so grateful if you could pop on over to the competition page and hit that little pink heart! It take two seconds and you can vote once a day until next Wednesday, 15th April. Click here to view my entry and vote!

On that note, I just have to mention that I would NEVER have even dreamed of entering a competition like this if it weren’t for the confidence and contentment that blogging has brought me, and a huge part of that is all of the support from you, my lovely readers! It really means an awful lot to me, so thanks for everything guys! 🙂

Until next time! xx

Monday Mix and Match

Happy Monday Tuesday everyone! Slightly late with this week’s favourites but what with the Easter weekend and the gloriously sunny bank holiday Monday, this is technically the first day of the week, isn’t it? Excuses aside, I hope everyone had a lovely, relaxing and chocolate filled weekend – I know I certainly stuffed myself to bursting with eggs (a fact I was majorly paying for at boot camp this evening…#shweatin)

This week, my favourites include an affordable skincare update, a healthy midweek dinner recipe and even a snazzy outfit change for my phone! I hope you enjoy!

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water for Combination and Sensitive Skin

Micellar waters are, without doubt, thee trendiest way to clean your face at the moment. Brought into the spotlight by the infamously unattainable Bioderma version and used by every make-up artist and beauty buff worth their salt, practically all of the high-street brands hav now released their own version. This is definitely good news for those of us who don’t manage regular visits to Paris for a Bioderma fix, and even better, there are varieties to suit every budget.

Monday Mix and Match

Another week, another Monday Mix and Match*….*disclaimer: it may or not actually be Wednesday… My bad! As they say, life gets on the way and with a full time job, dance classes and family commitments, every so often something has got to give! But hopefully you are all having a happy and not too busy hump day! If you do, take a moment or two for yourself, take some time out with a cuppa and have a read of my favourites in beauty, fashion and homewares for this week! It might even inspire a purchase or two for this coming payday weekend (can I get a hallelujah!!)…
