Relaxed Sunday Outfit....


Here is a little outfit post for you lovely lot. Its a Sunday today, well thats what day it is when I'm wearing this outfit and writing the post.

I love Sundays as its a chance to relax and be with my family with an Italian feast. I used to always wear heels day and night but as motherhood has taken over this has reduced but if I can I grab those bad boys with both hands and strut around!!

I got contacted by Tienne Jewellers, a great website showcasing various jewellery brands, I was able to chose a couple of items and straight away fell in love with these two necklaces by Estella Bartlett. My favourite out of the two is the Hand Of Fatima gold necklace, I have not taken it off since I received it! The second is the silver unicorn necklace, both at £19 each.

Review: The Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser

The Body Shop have always been a brand I have liked but never highly rated when it came to the skincare they offered, from Vitamin E to Tea Tree they offered a good variety but nothing that stood out to me or proved to me it was worth the wow factor but all of that changed over the last year or so when my eyes caught sight of positive reviews with the latest launches, so here is my take on the "Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser".
I heard good things about this product and wanted to try it out for myself especially when it claims to boost "dull, tired, grumpy skin" this is something my skin needs urgent help with lately after the arrival of my second child.

The packaging is simple, clean and appears high end. It has a matte black lid which I like as I feel matte black looks more expensive then the shiny glossy packaging, the packaging is a bright zesty orange reflecting the zesty scent!

The scent is not overpowering at all, instead it has a refreshing orange scent with a hint of a sweet flower hiding amonst the orange, a scent I love to smell in the mornings, it reminds me of being on my Nonnas balcony amonst her orange trees.

I have used this cream non stop since purchasing it, this has been the product that made me fall in love with the brand again, so much so I became a body shop consultant! The cream is a light orange colour, which feels refreshing and light to touch, I use this cream every morning to wake me up which it sure does, I feel refreshed and ready to face the world. The product claims to " refine texture for smoother, softer-feeling skin" what a claim to make! After a week of using this cream I would say my skin is brighter, happier and appears to be smoother with a glow that makes my makeup love my skin!
