My Current Beauty Top Picks #1

My Current Beauty Top Picks #1

So, it has been a bit of a funny week so far within the beauty community, at least that is if my twitter feed is anything to go by. Therefore, I thought it would be nice to get back to basics and share with you my current beauty top picks! Back in the good old days I used to do beauty favourites each month, yet if I am completely honest, it started to feel somewhat forced. It was a struggle to find new things to share each month as so often I would be using the same old thing and that same brand of dry shampoo.

Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Style Bohemian Style

Let's just say that this weekend in terms of weather has been utterly gorgeous in the UK. In fact, I cannot remember when we last had nice weather like this. Summer often feels pretty much none existent, therefore when it strikes in full force one must make the most of it. It would be rude not to right? 

This weekend I have mostly spent my time being back and forth between the outdoors and the refuge of shade; it has been of course Father's day and I have most certainly picked up my father's trait of not being able to handle the heat for too long. Luckily for me I have had a huge fan placed strategically next to my desk whilst I have being preparing a few blog posts here and there, however my car journey to meet my partner for food was somewhat of a struggle due to the fact that I do not have the luxury of air con. *Note to self that when I get a new car (in about five year's time), I will be looking for that feature first.

              Dress c/o She In,   Shoes - ASOS (old)

The nice weather tied in beautifully with my attempt to show off this dress from She In as it really is a beautiful item of clothing. The Lantern Sleeve Floral Print Shift Dress* (also currently on sale) has been pretty popular from what I can see. At first I was not aware of this, however it instantly appealed to me due to the boho style which, if I am honest I adore and would love to integrate more into my every day wardrobe. 

Dark floral patterns are my favourite, which again is another reason why I like this particular piece so much. The only gripe I do have with this item is that it is ridiculously oversized. Now, I know that is the general gist, however this really is very, very big. For reference, I am a size 10/12 depending on where I shop and the type of item I am buying. That being said, I opted for the size small in this which as you can see, there is still plenty of room to be had. 

To make this a bit more flattering you can easily wear a little belt to show your waist line if you prefer. I would also make a point of saying that if you do add a little belt then be prepared for the dress to become incredibly short...

Despite the above, I actually do adore this piece and find myself itching to wear it out in public. It is most definitely out of my comfort zone, however my Nan loved it this morning so that's a start, right?!

Rimmel Super Gel Nail Polishes

Rimmel Super Gel Nail PolishesNail polishes are often one of the first things you experiment with as a young girl growing up, they're often one of the first makeup type products you ever own. Within a few months (mum and dad permitting) you have amassed a collection that is full of insanely bright colours and more glitter than you can shake a stick at. Fast forward twenty odd years later, I still have a box full of nail polishes with a variety of shades and glitter; clearly not much has changed.

Kiko Summer 2.0 Collection

Kiko Summer 2.0 Collection

There are some fantastic mid range brands available these days, one such is Kiko. I remember first stumbling across Kiko back in 2015 with the launch of their Modern Tribes Collection which, if I am honest, completely blew me away in terms of the packaging and how it was presented. After that initial experience, it has been a brand which has remained in my mind and it is a store which I always pop into when I am in Birmingham.

Too Faced X Kat Von D Better Together Collection and Giveaway

Too Faced X Kat Von D Better Together Collection

Too Faced are by now well known for their soft feminine designs filled with light pinks and pastels, therefore, when I first saw the press images for the new Too Faced X Kat Von D collaboration I was immediately interested. As a brand on its own I love Too Faced, to see them do something a bit more edgy but also keep in touch with their authenticity was exciting.
