Kadria Balancing Face Oil with chia and blackseed*, £36.00

Kadria skincare is a London based natural skincare range which was developed by a dynamic due of an aromatherapist and a massage therapist. I was kindly offered to review their natural Balancing Face Oil made with chia, blackseed, blackcurrant and tamanu oils which I got really excited about as I'm really into face oils at the moment. I use them as an intensive overnight treatment for my skin and so far I've tried some fantastic natural and organic face oils. Lately I've had some problems with my skin and spots, and Kadria Balancing Face Oil targets hormonal skin changes - it is also tested and proven to be safe to use for women who are pregnant and experiencing troubles with their skin.

The Kadria Balancing Face Oil is a blend of essential oils and Omega 3 + 6 which combined helps to protect the skin, as well as nourish and restore uneven skin. The oil is scented with gorgeous Rose Geranium and Frankincense which helps your mind relax as well as the calm your skin.
Blackseed oil has high levels of amino acids which aid cellular regeneration, nigellone which has anti-inflammatory effects and help combat premature ageing, and essential fatty acids which stimulate the skins natural protective and healing process. Chia seed oil is high in omega 3 and helps calm inflammation, keep skin smooth and combats signs of ageing - as well as being easily absorbed into the skin. Blackcurrant seed oil is high in omega 3 + 6, GLA and phenolic acids which are all known for their anti-oxidant, nourishing and regenerative qualities. It is also known to help with conditions such as acne as it has anti-inflammatory properties. Tamanu (which is like a small green berry) oil has the capacity to help your skin form new tissues which helps with healing and makes your skin look healthy and fresh.

It comes in a really easy to use bottle with a pump so you can squeeze out a couple of drops and apply to your skin after cleansing. You can also use it before applying your usual moisturiser so this works day or night. I found the oil to be very light, silky and easily absorbed into the skin - top marks as sometimes I find facial oils can be really greasy (you can see on the picture how light and runny the oils is).
I really enjoyed using this oil as my skin feels really nice and soft, about an hour after I apply it I can already feel the difference. It has helped my spots and I hope using it over time it will also help me with my unbalanced skin tone too. Kadria Balancing Face Oil is pretty pricey at £36 per bottle, however it lasts ads because you only need a tiny bit and for me it does make a difference to my skin so it's definitely worth investing into. I also really like all the ingredients in the oil, and the fact that it is natural and also safe to use when you're pregnant means that you can use this oil consistently through your life.

what i'm wearing: knitwear Zara (sale) // sunglasses New Look // watch Michael Kors // gold tattoos Primark

The weather in the UK is looking pretty chilly in the near future so I've not put away my cosy knitwear just yet! I picked up a couple of bargains from the Zara sale and one of them was this cosy, Italian wool sweater. It's a blush pink colour and has a chunky knit which always scores high with me in the fashion books - I think chunky knits look really homey and cosy! And of course, keep you warm.
This sweater is really warm and I love it as a layering pieces as well as wearing it on it's own like in the pictures above. I think it looks kind of seventies in the shape so it fits with the current season - pair it with a funky patterned mini skirt, a pair of chunky heels and some oversized shades and you're ready to take the seventies trend to the streets!

I also love the gorgeous gold tattoos - from Primark for a mere £1.50! I'm so impressed with them as they stay on for ages and are so easy to apply, I'll definitely be wearing more of them when it gets warmer and I can show off more skin = more tattoos. I've always thought some tattoos look really chic and trendy, but have never been brave enough to get one, mainly because I'm so fickle when it comes to things so I would probably decide I hate it after a month!

I hope you guys enjoy your weekend, I'm going to be working on some home improvement and also shooting some really exciting new blog posts!

Last week I blogged about a casual Friday look and I thought I would carry on the tradition with this fashion blog post where I style my current favourite Zara gingham silk mix with a pair of comfy sneakers and jeans!
Gingham is a key trend for this season and I absolutely love this Zara shirt - the colour is beautiful and bright, the silk mix is so soft and comfy to wear and the shape is flattering. Zara is one of my favourite stores to shop from, I can always find a whole pile of clothes that I love from there! And I'm also loving the gingham trend - something that at first I felt like I had to try as it is a key trend for Spring 2015, but now has become more of a "thing". I just love the colourful gingham pieces on the high street! I'm still on the lookout for a gingham co-ord so if you see one, please tweet me!

I paired this shirt with black skinny jeans to contrast the blue on top, and matched white leather sneakers. Liam treated me to these Converse Allstar low leather sneakers on a shopping trip and they are a staple piece in my wardrobe - easy to style, everyday comfort and easy to clean (I'm not the best person with white...).

This is a really nice casual playful look that you can wear on Casual Friday to the office, or for a coffee on Sunday. Relax, grab a cuppa and enjoy time pass by!

Spring 2015 LookBook: Little Black Dress by Weareall

what i'm wearing: little black dress* Wearall // jacket River Island (old) // bag Chanel // necklace Zara // sunglasses Primark // shoes Topshop (old)

The little black dress is a staple in every fashionistas wardrobe - it rescues women when we have an "I have nothing to wear" crisis, it looks great worn casually with sandals and big shades, as well as looking glam. A little black dress suits every shape and size, and I want to point you to this version from Wearall, an online fashion boutique, which offers this casual little black T-shirt dress.

First of all, this really is a little black dress. The dress is quite short so I paired it with a pair of black tights to suit the current weather, but I can't wait to style it with a tan and gladiator sandals in the summer. The oversized, casual T-shirt look is one of my favourites - it suits everyone and gives you that "I haven't tried but I look great" look. I styled it here with some chunky heeled boots and a leather jacket, with oversized round shades and staple gold pieces. Printed items are really in fashion right now, and this dress keeps it simple and stylish.

I love this dress and it will be a staple in my wardrobe for a long time, probably until it gets so old and worn when I will still wear it around the house!

what i'm wearing: jumpsuit* Wareall // gillet* Blue Vanilla // sandals Topshop // collar ASOS (old)

Spring is all about florals and I'm really looking forward to the weather warming up so I can wear this gorgeous jumpsuit from Wearall without a jacket to cover it! I looks awesome with sandals and relaxed be achy hair, ultimately worn with high heels and a formal bun with some glam jewellery it will look great at cocktail hour.

Wearall is an online fashion boutique selling really great pieces for bargain prices - this floral jumpsuit is £19! Great price for a great piece. It is made from really soft material and nicely drapes around the figure; it also has two handy pockets! The leg length goes all the way past your ankles so you can wear it as it is, or rolled up which looks great with sandals which have an ankle strap.

I really love this fashion piece, it was love at first sight when I saw it on the website: from the colour, to the shape and the pattern it's just a beautiful piece at a bargain price. Can we have the sun and warmth back now please?

Living in the heart of beautiful Hampshire, we try to make the most of the countryside by going for a really long walk on Sundays. Harvey loves exploring new forests and we do too - never mind the weather! Today the weather wasn't on our side and it was really windy and wet, but we still had fun jumping around in puddles and working up an appetite for our Sunday roast. 

I was also excited to try my new selection of Workforce socks and see how they measure up when it's cold and wet outside. The Workforce range is designed for those who require socks that are "as tough as their working environment" and need a practical solution that doesn't compromise on style and comfort. The styles of socks have a combination of specially selected advanced fibres, technical knitted features and design techniques that all work together. The wide selection of socks includes general purpose boot socks, Wellington boot socks and socks especially designed for those whose work requires heavy duty footwear (the range you see above is the new, trendier version of the sturdy socks).

I love cosy, thick knitted socks because if my feet and head are warm my whole body is warm - especially if I'm mooching around in the house of spending time outdoors. Liam and I both trialled out the socks as they're unisex and I chose a pair of socks to wear with wellies whilst Liam chose a pair to go with his hiking boots. My feet were cosy and warm all day, and the socks didn't slip and slide around like some do. I then got changed into another pair when we got home and settled down with a cup of tea before we had a scrumptious chicken roast. 

Cosy Sundays have become a little tradition in our house and we enjoy the action packed morning followed by a chilled out afternoon - and of course lots of warm, filling foods! 
How do yo spend your Sundays? Do you have something you have to do to complete the week?

what i'm wearing: gillet* Blue Vanilla // dress Topshop // shoes and bag River Island (old) // necklace Zara // sunglasses New Look

Being a part of etail PR's blogger network has put me in touch with loads of great brands and one of them is Blue Vanilla. Blue Vanilla is a cute boutique store who stock the latest trends at affordable, high street prices.
I absolutely love this fluffy pink gillet - it's so soft and warm, and looks great with almost everything! In this post, I styled it with a simple midi dress and added statement accessories - like the feather bag which perfectly matches my gillet in colour!

The parcels from Blue Vanilla comes wrapped in really cute heart print paper - so you can always tell when you're items have arrived! The shipping is quick and easy - overall I had a great experience with the company and I will definitely keep them on my radar.

Some other ways you can style this gillet is with skinny jeans and a white t-shirt, with skater dresses or try out the seventies trend and pair it with flares!

Spring 2015 LookBook: Aztec at Warehouse

I have shopped in Warehouse since I was about 15, and I really like the stye and the quality of their items. The current season in Warehouse knitwear sees a mx of Aztec and oriental prints, with classic style jumpers with modern and sleek twists.

I love this monochrome aztec cardigan - it's so versatile and can be worn casually and a little more dressed up. I styled this for a casual Friday look with a cropped top and skinny jeans, and accessories with statement gold pieces. This look is stylish, comfy and weather appropriate as it's cold outside but with the radiators turned up inside you can let some air cool your body through this loose cardigan.

I am also going to style this cardigan for a smarter look with a black/white turtleneck and highwaisted  black skinny jeans - this is another great look to layer!
