The Coral Primark Blouse

I've never actually thought about buying a backup of a top before...until I purchased this blouse from Primark.
It is the perfect coral/peach shade that actually makes my skin, hair and even my mood brighter!

At £8 it's not one of the cheapest tops you can buy from Primark, but it doesn't exactly break the bank. And the quality is nice enough that it won't fall apart within the first wash.

There are racks full of pretty blouses in Primark at the moment in a variety of different colours and prints. So if you're not too keen on this one, there's bound to be something in a style you like!

Flawless and Long Lasting Everyday Makeup Routine

Working all day without the chance to get to a mirror means I need makeup that I know won't budge and will look flawless all day long! In particular I like my skin to look perfect and almost doll-like.
I've been testing out different foundations over the past few weeks and there is only one that truly lasts the day...

Revlon Colorstay (Oily/combination). It's a matte foundation that gives medium/full coverage.

I've been using it with L'oreal's Smoothing Resurfacing Primer and this makes the foundation go on smooth and stops any caking. It doesn't necessarily make the foundation last any longer, but you really don't need it to!

Neom Happiness Candle

"A Sparkling blend of White Neroli, Mimosa and Lemon is combined with natural fresh grass notes to create the awakening of spring."

I could not have described the scent of this candle better. When lit I feel as though I'm sitting in a field of flowers with the sun shining down on me! It's a glorious blend of natural ingredients that truly captures the smell and feeling of spring.



I'm usually a big fan of Yankee Candle, however no scent I've bought from them compares to the fresh, crisp scent of the Happiness Home Candle. It contains:
  • No paraffin wax
  • No synthetic scents
  • No black smoke
  • No toxins
  • Only natural wax and pure essential oils

This candle is perfect for a relaxing evening on the sofa or after a hard day at work. It would also be great if you were having friends round as it really freshens up a room!

The only downside is the £37.50 price tag. However it does give up to 55 hours burn time and only needs to be lit for a short amount of time but will keep a room fragrant for hours.

I've now got my eye on the Serenity Candle which combines Vanilla and Sandalwood - two of my favourite scents.

The Trooper

I've managed to get three days off for this weekend which is absolutely amazing! I haven't had two days off in a row in what feels like ages...so to get three is like a dream come true!

I thought I'd post a couple of 'going out' outfits this weekend as I don't feel like I've posted many in the past. As I usually go to Rock/Metal bars my outfit usually consists of a metal tee and shorts or jeans! But to add a slightly more glamorous touch I decided to wear my faux fur jacket from BooHoo.
