Glossybox April

This month's box was very Spring related. The box was absolutely beautiful and the contents were all very fresh scented products - right up my street!

Essie Adore-a-ball Nail Lacquer - I was very excited to see a full sized Essie nail polish in my box this month, and I adore the colour (pun intended!). It's a lovely light pink/white and very appropriate for Spring.

Yves Rocher 24 Hour Comfort Nourishing Cream - This is amazing. It's wonderfully moisturizing and smells just like fresh melon and cucumber, which is so relaxing to apply all over my face.

Balance Me Radiance Face Mask - This is another amazing product. This face mask is very different to any other face mask I've tried before - it exfoliates, cleanses and brightens the complexion! There's tiny little walnut granules in this, hence the exfoliating properties. To me it smells like Geranium and something else which I can't quite pinpoint.

Nip + Fab Dry Skin Fix Mango Body Butter - This is a lovely rich, moisturizing product which is so lovely to apply to the skin. It does have a very sweet scent but nothing too sickly or unbearable. I don't really think it smells of mango but it does the job of moisturizing well.

Richard Ward Couture Hair Optimiser Style Reviver - I have only used this once, but I was pretty impressed. I have curly hair so it sometimes gets a bit frizzy, but after i sprayed this, my hair was tamed! This controls frizz, increases shine and creates volume without residue or stickiness.

Did you get this months Glossybox? What do you think?

Colour pop

I have recently been really inspired by lots of colour in outfits. I'm beginning to tire of dark colours and can't wait until summer approaches so I can be as colourful as a beach ball! I love these outfits below and really want to try and put together some similar outfits in the coming weeks, to brighten my mood during this miserable exam period.

What do you think about these colourful outfits? Are you a colour person?

To the Beach

1. Topshop Navy Chevron Stripe Bikini
2. Miss Selfridge Mid Wash High Waist Shorts
3. Accessorize Mari Tote
4. Jack Wills Somerton Flipflops 
5. Topshop Preppy Clear Round Sunglasses 
6. Vogue + Elle
7. Ipod + Headphones
8. All Saints Peony Vest
9. Hawaiian Tropic Lime Coolada Body Butter
10. Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Protective Sun Lotion
11. Hawaiian Tropic Protective Dry Oil Spray

This is my to the beach wishlist. I always have to take something to read to the beach and it's always nice to have music on hand for sunbathing/snoozing. Another necessity for the beach is a large bag to be able to fit everything in. I don't like to wear anything fancy to the beach, but something pretty and simple. I love Hawaiian Tropic products mainly because of their smell - to me they smell of banana and coconut, which is divine in my opinion. I love this Topshop bikini, simply because it's got two uses - you can wear it with or without straps - perfect for the perfect tan with no noticeable tan lines across your neck!

What's your beach necessities and fancies?
