SKY HI


Wal-G really surprised me with this gorgeous peplum top that clinches the waist in all the right places to give maximum volume and enhanced curvesThe top drapes beautifully and gives the illusion of a much slimmer silhouette with the fitted design to the bust and loose peplum bottom for more shape.

Sky Hi Trainers: Nike | Trousers: ASOS (Similar, Similar) | Top: Wal-G c/o | Leather Jacket: Y.A.S

I adore the unique design to the front and feel this top will come in perfect for casual and evening wear paired with some skinny jeans or a pencil skirtThis is more of a laid back outfit for those casual day's where comfort comes first and had to team these PU leather trousers with my new Leather Nikes in a classic Hi-Top Design with fabric upper and breathable mesh lining, making these the perfect excuse for laid back cool. Nike has always been my No.1 sneaker choice over the years for comfort and style, and these definitely tick all the boxes with their sleek monochrome black and white palette and mixed fabrics

Trainers are always my favourite footwear for casual/lazy days and these really are comfortable even with the concealed wedge and look great with everything!! To keep warm I went with my leather jacket and love how the shoulder details match the knee patch detailing on the trousers to really bring the outfit together and this combination can take me from day to night with a quick shoe change into something more classy such as my Ted Baker or Brian Atwood Heels.

SPONGE

A couple of weeks back now it was my brothers birthday and I was on the hunt for something special in the cake department. Normally I would buy cakes from Goodfellows Bakery but these can be pricey from £40-£60 but unfortunately at the time the website was down so I had to look elsewhere for a nice cake and I was not prepared to buy anything from the supermarket, as I just find they're very bland compared to homemade cakes.


I must admit I am a terrible cook when it comes to baking cakes and the sorts so this was most definitely not an option for this occasion, so I figured Google would be my next best option. I wanted something homemade and fresh with a reasonable price tag and I noticed www.sponge.co.uk in my search after a quick browse and instantly knew this was the one. Trying to peel my eyes away from all the incredible cakes on offer, I had to pick between two so I went with the coffee and chocolate sponge cakeCoffee had to be my favorite as I love anything with coffee and really liked how moist the sponge was and the intense flavour, I also realised the top has decorative cocoa beans that are made from chocolate and not coffee, so this was a nice touch. 

I loved the butter cream filling and how light the sponge was, making it very yummy and flavoursome. The chocolate cake was also similar to the coffee cake with a nice light, moist sponge and chocolate butter cream filling. The top of this sponge has a mixture of white and milk chocolate butter cream with chocolate shavings to decorate. This sponge cake was less flavour some than the coffee and for that reason I was not to impressed with this one, but again this does come down to personal taste and preferences as my brother and family loved this cake, but it just wasn't for me. Each cake I bought was the smallest version ("7 at £12.50 each and you will get 8 slices out of this size) you can also opt for the larger option at (10" for £19.99 and you will get 16 slices out of this). 

When you first enter the site you will find it extremely hard to pick a cake as you have so much options to choose from!! I really wanted to try the "Sharing Sponge" as this looked incredible with x2 slices of each cake, making it a great option for dinner parties. I would highly recommend SPONGE and you can also get personalised cakes and create your own with the choice of flavour, butter cream and topping to suit your personal needs. They also do Gluten Free cakes and cute Baby Sponge/Party cakes that come in 8 flavours, not only this but you can also get your cake gift wrapped with candles and a personalised card, making this a great gift option for someone who loves cakes.

NIP AND FAB BEE STING CREAM DELUXE

I have never used a moisturiser this intense before and what I mean by intense is the fact you can actually feel this moisturiser working and penetrating into the deeper layers of the skin. The cream has a slight tingly sensation as soon as you apply the thick cream and its really invigorating and completely awakens tired skin.


The thing I love most about this cream is not only the fact you can feel it working but it also helps to brighten and rejuvenate the skin and when I apply my make-up you can really notice how bright my skin looks compared to using different moisturiser brands. I always enjoy using this first thing in the morning to waken my skin up and like how it instantly stimulates blood to the surface of my skin for a nice dewy glow

The cream has a nice thick consistency and you don't need much when applying to the face and neck and it dries almost instantly!! I feel this cream has helped to firm up my skin and makes it look more even and moisturised. I have yet to see long term results with my acne scarring and only half way through the tub so this stuff really does last month's!! I have noticed a reduction in blemishes and redness as this cream helps to treat and reduce bacteria with the antiseptic properties from the Propolis Extract.


What it promises:
  • Hydration
  • Anti-Aging Shield
  • Thick Creamy Texture
  • Plumps & Tightens The Skin
  • Reduces Fine Lines & Wrinkles
What I like:
  • Very moisturising 
  • Plumps The Skin
  • Not tested on animals
  • Brightens and Tightens 
  • Thick Rich Creamy Formula 
  • Natural/High Quality Ingredients 
  • Leaves My Skin Very Soft and Smooth
What I dislike:
  • -
How I would Apply: 
By applying straight from the tub, and I would store the tub in the fridge so it leaves my skin nice and cool when applied.
Product Expiry
24 months

Have you used the Nip + Fab Bee Sting Range?

RAVEN

Isn't this dress just beautiful? You might have noticed this dress is slightly different to what I normally wear with the pretty puffed out skirt and turtle neck. When it comes to dresses I love a good bodycon fit, but really like how this dress looks for different occasions with the delicate lace detailing to the bodice and neck, making this piece really stand out!!


Dress: Chi Chi c/o | Heels: Ted Baker | Leather Jacket: Y.A.S (Here)

This dress will come in perfect for Weddings and Party's with the chic floral lace detailing and classic black finish, with a more nude colour to the bodice. I find the quality very nice and the dress also comes with a padded bust and fully lined for extra comfort and warmth, making this a great investment piece that will last all year round for different types of events and occasions. I feel this dress looks very classy and chic, especially paired with some pointed court heels like these ones from Ted Baker also in classic black to really pull this outfit together for a special evening!! 

These heels are a god send, not only are they very comfortable and easy to walk in, but they look great with all my dresses and more casual outfits! They look especially good with this dress and very minimalistic, making the dress and the beautiful fabric/detailing really stand out. A/W can be chilly so I wanted a more casual approach and went with my Y.A.S Leather Jacket to give a tough edge and to also keep me warm! I love how well this goes with the dress and it will come in great for layering when the weather starts to get colder.

I think after wearing this dress I have been converted to trying out different shapes and styles and really like how this one fits and enhances the right areas for a nice flattering look. I actually feel the way this dress has been designed it gives the illusion of a much slimmer silhouette and the skirt has so much volume it makes my legs appear so much longer!!
