I was recently sent this gorgeous chocker neck stripe culotte jumpsuit  from shopical. Shopical basically works by you sharing the item you want on to Facebook and you get discount off your purchase. For example this jumpsuit is £24 but if you share it to Facebook first then its only £19!  I think its a great idea I mean who doesn't love discount? 

The jumpsuit was nice and lightweight so it would be perfect for taking on holiday,  I have the size 8
 which for me is a little big as I'm normally a size 6 but a pin in the side and it was perfect for me. I've been loving culottes at the moment there perfect for our UK summer when the weather cant decide what to do! I also love the chocker detail on the neck I think it just adds that something different from your typical jumpsuit. 

They have some great summer pieces on their website at the moment so its definitely worth checking out!

The Ordinary skincare


The ordinary is a new skincare launch from Deciem. I was really intrigued by this brand as is had so many rave reviews and yet it is so affordable. Having such sensitive skin and finding skincare that works for me isn't always easy. I managed to pick these up with 20% student discount on Asos, making them all roughly £4 each, amazing for skincare right?

First up I love the packaging of all the products. I love the minimal clinical feel of the them and I also like that the liquids are in glass bottles with pipets to distribute just the right amount of product at a time. 

The Hyaluronic acid 2% is definitely my favourite product out of the three. It is suppose to help hydrate the skin which is perfect for me as I often get dry patches. I've been using this every morning before applying my makeup. Its allows my foundation to be applied smoothly without clinging. If you have dry skin then this is a must.

Next is the natural moisturizing factors. I have been using this in conjunction with the hyaluronic acid and its really helped my skin to feel moisturized. My skin has felt noticeably softer. It does take quite a while to sink into the skin but I still love it.

Lastly is the 100% organic cold pressed moroccan argan oil. It has quite a strong initial smell which I cant say I'm a fan of but once brushed into the hair the smell definitely starts to disappear. A little goes quite a long way espically when using it on your face. It left my hair feeling nourished and super soft which is great as I have quite dry hair.

Overall I'm really impressed with the brand. Its so affordable whilst still being great quality. I cant wait to try more from the brand!

Have you tried The Ordinary skincare?

Landon Tyler Candles

landon tyler

Landon Tyler  is a brand I had previously never heard of, which surprises me as I'm candle obsessed! They claim to be a luxury candle at an affordable price. After using both the candle and the diffuser the past couple of weeks I can definitely agree.

First of all how pretty is the packaging?! I love the simple design and colours, they look a lot more expensive than they are and would look great in any room.

I chose the scent country meadow which contains jasmine, neroli, ylang and musk. I'm not a fan of too strong scents as they give me a headache, but this was perfect it smelt lovely and fresh while still having the subtle hint of musk. This scent would be perfect in a living room as its not too over powering.

Judge is a kitchenware brand I love, they aim to bring innovate and time saving solutions to everyday kitchen tasks.
They recently sent me this amazing slate which is perfect for parties or family gatherings. It can be used for appetisers, deserts and would look great as a cheese board. I'll definitely be using this in a few weeks time for my birthday gathering.
The slate can be easily removed from the wooden exterior so it can be cleaned easily which is handy. 

I also received the cute little chip basket, I love these they can make a standard meal looks well presented and put together. Made from stainless steel with a long handle makes its great quality and easy to carry. I'll definitely be using this quite a lot!

Judge also do many other slates, bakeware and even marble cheese boards which are definitely on my wish list! 

Judge can be found in many different stores you can find you nearest stockiest here.
