Perfect Lacey Spanx Underwear!

Spanx is a name that you might had heard thrown around quite a lot in the past few years. The company have long had fans such as Oprah Winfrey, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jessica Alba to name but a few. What’s all the fuss about though I hear you ask? It really is amazing underwear that does two things. It holds you in at all the right places and give you a little bit of extra confidence that we all need some times too. With the material that it’s made from, Spanx also does a great job at hiding the dreaded VPL and help clothes fit in the right way.

In fact the Spanx story is that back in 2000 American founder Sara Blakely was getting ready for a special event and realised that she didn’t have the right undergarments to make her white trousers do the talking. With not much time to spare she cut the legs off a pair of tights, and it turns out that this actually did the job and the rest as they say is history.

The thing with Spanx is that they’re also synonymous with Bridget Jones type pants so they’re not known for looking all that pretty – until now. Spanx just got sexy with this lacy number. I’ve been trying this set out in the past few weeks, they include the Undie-tectable black lace cheeky panty and the pillow cup signature push up plunge bra. They’re both beautifully soft, fit perfectly which in turn smooths out my lumps and bumps making me feel great. Bonus! I’d definitely try more products and did you know they also do mens products too.

Spanx are available to buy from most department stores, Asos, Amazon, UKLingerie as well a the Spanx  site. Have you tried Spanx and will you be popping down to your local department store to try them out? Let me know in the comments below.

Birthday Wishlist!

Birthday Wishlist

My birthday is coming up really soon and there are so many things that I love at the moment. I thought I would pop together some items/ ideas that I would love to receive for my birthday.

1. First up is this gorgeous Vivienne Westwood necklace. I’ve had the orb earrings for a while and I constantly wear them so I’d love to have the necklace too. They just go with everything and really make an outfit look more stylish.

2. I’ve been travelling quite a bit recently, viagra 40mg my little suitcase that I’ve had since university has seen better days. I love the Ted Baker suitcases, they’re always so pretty and this black one is super cute. I also love the some of the suitcases from River Island too.

3. I’m a huge fan of bees, I especially love Alex Monroe bee necklace my husband gave me for my 30th birthday so it’s super special to me. This Olivia Burton bee bracelet is a really great match for the necklace. Anything bee related is a winner for me.

4. I’m a big fan of Jo Malone fragrances and the perfume that I am loving at the moment is Nectarine Blossom and Honey. It’s such a summery fragrance and is supposed to remind you of Covent Garden early in the morning. Covent Garden is one of my favourite places to go in London so this is perfect.

5. One of my favourite shops at the moment is Joules as they have so many amazing designs and prints. It’s right up my street especially this gorgeous Julia Pleated Jersey dress. The fabric is super soft, and will definitely keep me cool in the warmer English weather.

6. As I’ve said before anything with a bee on is a winner in my book and I’ve loved these intricate Olivia Burton Bee watches since they originally came out. It would take pride of place on my wrist and would make every outfit look amazing.

7. My current computer is quite old and some of the buttons occasionally don’t work so I’m well in need of a new computer. My ideal would be an iPad/ iPad pro or a Mac Book Pro as they’re so easy to use.

Are you loving any of these pieces. Tweet me and let me know.

April Beauty an Fashion Favourites!

It’s quite far through May now but there were so many products that I’ve loved in April so I thought that I would gather up my favourites and go through them so here they are.

IMG_0368

First up in my gorgeous mini black Michael Kors bag. It’s small but it’s come in handy so much and I’ve found that I reach for it again and again. It fits a few cards, click a bit of cash, approved a lippie or two, this a tiny fragrance and my phone. Perfect!

IMG_0370

This month has been a big one for skin care for me and I have three products so next up is the first of these products, Pixi Glow Tonic. I was a little unsure about using this product as I haven’t used products with Glycolic acid much and my skin is really sensitive but I was happily surprised by this. Bloggers have long raved about this product and I can see why. Used after cleansing, it brightens, tones and conditions your skin and you can see the results straight away. My skin is also so soft when I’ve used this product and I always get comments on my skin which is definitely a bonus.

IMG_0382

Next up is a product from Clarins – Skin Illusion Blush in the colour Luminous Pink. It’s a limited Edition so it may be difficult to get hold of. It’s a beautiful blush, the bush pad is inside with the product itself in the lid and theres also a mirror on the outside of the product too. I’ve been using this for the last month or so and it’s beautiful for the Spring/Summer season. I always blend it in with a separate blush brush and it works so well.

IMG_0374

Next up is the Aveda Botanical kinetics energising eye cream. It’s a light product that you use sparingly around the orbital bone. Dot on and then lightly massage the product in day and night and it helps with those pesky dark circles. I suffer with this quite a lot especially after a few late nights and it’s really help fight them off. Definitely a product I’ll be repurchasing too.

IMG_0380

My final product for skin care is the Clarins Hydra – Essential moisturiser. It’s a beautiful day cream that helps with dehydrated skin which mine definitely is. It helps keep the skin capacity to retain water, and it really does leave it looking radiant, smooth and fresh looking. I’m excited to use more of the products in this range this month too.

IMG_0371

Next up  is a beautiful hand cream from Neom. I’ve been reviewing the product for the Really Ree site and I’ve really loved using it. It’s in the fragrance Make You Happy which is a scent that instantly makes you feel energised and happy. It nourishes and hydrates your hands but if you take a few deep breaths of the product, it’s uplifting. I’ve found that it’s really helped with stress and anxiety and it’s another one that I’ll be repurchasing in the next few weeks for sure.

IMG_0377

Lastly is this beautiful nail polish from Leighton Denny in the colour, Whatever. It’s a beautiful purple/nude colour that seems to go with everything and really does last too. It’s one I keep going back to again and again and it’s sure to be for a long time too.

Fenwick’s Blogger Event!

The Colchester event hosted talent from Alex Monroe, visit this site Astley Clarke, Radley and Rosie Fortescue and they met with bloggers to show off their collections, tell the stories behind each piece and how they’re made, and they gave us a peek at what’s coming soon.

I wanted to show you a selection of  brand designers that I met during the event. The first I spoke to was EDBLAD, a Swedish designer that does home wear and clothing as well as some affordable contemporary jewellery. There’s some really beautiful pieces using circles, hearts and gem stones but the intertwining circle necklaces were particularly special.

The second was Emily Mortimer Jewellery, a new brand for Fenwicks in Colchester. Emily Mortimer Jewellery has a combination of the most beautiful gem stones and metals. A collection of pieces that are fun and affordable that you can wear anytime. Emily herself was at the shop showing off her new range and explaining the stories behind them and the brand itself. I particularly loved the emerald cut gem stone bracelets.

The third designer of the day was Jo Malone who were offering hand and arm massages with scent trailing too with a particular emphasis on the newest addition, Star Magnolia. It’s a beautiful scent with magnolia, citrus, ginger and shiso. Scent trailing involved picking out scents, that would layer over Star Magnolia such as Peony and Blush Suede and they all smell amazing together.
