Learn to Laugh More

Originally posted on Ramona Crisstea:
I wanted to approach a new subject in this post that is different from the usual tips for dressing. I wanted to talk about something that is related to happiness and that is laughter. Through laughter we express out joy. Concentrate on the present moment because it is rich enough. Try to tell yourself that nothing is permanent, even the worries and unhappy moments. In addition to that remember that laughter is essential. The laughter can lit us from inside and help get through a rough day. You can take out of the wardrobe the most unconventional clothes and wear them. Moreover smile while doing so and get out of anonymity. You will see how everyone notices you and that is a good thing. This little thing can be on your list that makes you happy and remember to be grateful and joyful every day.

Faith in Nature review

Originally posted on Charm of Love:
Evening everyone, Well I did not miss waking up at 6am to go to work. It doesn’t help that the sun doesn’t rise until after 7 and I feel like the walking dead as I finish this post this morning. I know I’ve had some time off but I am still annoyed that I’m working on the weekend, oh well. Today I am reviewing a few Faith in Nature products. Faith in Nature are certified, both by the Vegan Society and by Cruelty Free International. They make natural, affordable products and believe in benefiting the planet. Not all their products are vegan but the majority are, they don’t use GMOs, synthetic colours or fragrances. Their products are free from SLES, SLS, parabens and artificial preservatives. I received all the following products as a gift and it’s taken me ages to get round to using everything I received for my birthday. The first thing I used was the lavender and geranium shower gel and foam bath. I love these scents…

Highlighter

I wore this dress to one of my birthday dinners and have been finding all sorts of ways to wear it ever since. You can tell from the texture it’s really lightweight and being satin makes it even more airy, both exactly what I need in this stiff August heat. ? Shoutout to my best friend for getting me these sunglasses at a street market. He bought a pair for my birthday which another one of my friends inadvertently sat on and broke that same night, I was absolutely traumatized. So out of pity, my best friend bought me three more, all different colors, each blocking out more sun than any other pair of sunglasses I’ve ever worn. Wearing an Asos dress (sold out- this), Nasty Gal platforms (sold out – these), shades by Scott.

Chicago’s Air and Water Show

Originally posted on for the love of nike :
Chicago’s Air and Water Show was this past weekend–and it was fantastic as always. This year’s headliners were the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds the F-35 Heritage Flight. The show has been around for 57 years. Back then, the budget was only $88. I’d love to know what the total cost is now that Shell is footing the bill. There is nothing like watching some amazing stunts while gazing at the city that you love. ?

MVMT Watches: Company Review

Originally posted on Me, Myself and Everything Else:
Happy Wednesday! This week has been something else! I have lots to share soon but until then I wanted to share a company I’ve been loving lately. I also want to mention this is not a sponsored post.? MVMT watches have been getting more and more popular lately and with their?cool crisp style I can see why! The minute I saw them I new I had to have one! I originally snagged one for my boyfriend ?and he loves it as well! After seeing how much he loved his, he surprised me (with my not so subtle hints) with one for Valentine’s Day!? About a month after having my watch I noticed the time kept being off. No matter how many times I reset it or fixed it, I would look down later and it would be off.? I emailed MVMT and within 5 minutes I had a response back from customer service with another way to reset it. I tried, but sadly it didn’t work! So…

ColourPop: Jenn Im’s “Jenn Ne Sais Quoi” Collection

Originally posted on Brunch & Gloss:
? So I had heard about the brand ColourPop before and I know it has quite the following online. I’m not usually one for buying cosmetics online because I like to see the quality of the product as well as the actual packaging it comes in. With that being said, so many people rave about Colourpop because of its affordable price point and its high quality. When I saw that one of my favorite Youtubers Jenn Im did a collab with ColourPop, I felt like this would be a good opportunity to give them a try. Jenn’s always been an influencer that I’ve trusted so I went in expecting really good things. So this was obviously my first time ordering from them so I have to touch base on the ordering process. I have to throw it out there that I’m extremely impatient when it comes to online ordering. Amazon Prime has spoiled me! So I was a bit put off by how long my order took to “process”.…

Spectrum Brushes Review

Originally posted on DCITR:
Recently I was given the opportunity to try out ‘Spectrum’ brushes and of course I jumped at the chance because WHY WOULDN’T I WANT PINK BRUSHES IN MY LIFE!? If you haven’t seen this brand floating around Instagram then, quite frankly, you’re missing out because every time I see a pic of these adorable mermaid-inspired brushes I die a little inside. The brand are PETA registered, vegan trademarked and cruelty free (YAAS) and claim to be the leading brand in trend lead makeup brushes with professional performance. They have also been used by the stars of TOWIE, Geordie Shore, MIC and many more. I was very kindly sent the ‘8 Piece Eye Blending Set’ which retails for £29.99 and can be purchased HERE. I unboxed the brushes on camera in an unboxing video over on my YouTube channel so if you wanna see my overly-excited initial reaction to the cuteness click HERE. I definitely said ‘cool’ WAY too many times in that video so here I plan to share my thoughts in a little more…

LUSH Haul.

Originally posted on driftinglexi:
If you were watching my Snapchat (driftinglexi) earlier this afternoon you will have seen that I took a trip to LUSH after work and picked up a load of products. This is definitely the most I have personally bought in one shopping trip to LUSH, but it is by no means that large compared to other LUSH hauls I have seen. First off I will say that there won’t be many photos of the actually products within the packaging in this post. I like to keep my bath bombs and bubble bars in their bags until I get around to using them as it just keeps them together and protected, plus I like them having the labels on them, despite the fact that I do know what they all are, haha. Secondly, all of these products are new to me. There isn’t a single product in this haul that I have used before, therefore making it even more exciting. While there will not be loads of images in this post, if you add me on Snapchat…

Relax and Enjoy Life

Sanrdo ‘TrueLove’ sweatshirt, Nasty Gal skirt, Sandro booties, Furla ‘Yoyo’ cosmetic case & ‘Lady’ tassel charm. Athleisure has reached great new heights, allowing comfy clothes to become unlikely staples of sophisticated street style. Isn’t it great? From sweatpants with heels to graphic sweatshirts with skirts, there are endless ways to look chic but relaxed, and actually feel relaxed, too. I’ve barely taken off this adorable Sandro sweatshirt since I snagged it last month, and it looks just as cool with mom jeans and combat boots as it does dressed up with this flouncy skirt.
