5 Ways to add some Sparkle to your Outfit

Hey!

Ever think your outfit needs a wee add-on, or something is just missing from it? Here are some simple, subtle ways that seem obvious but maybe someday might just help.. you never know!

First off, the easiest of all, a nicer pair of shoes! Don’t just throw on your trainers, maybe a pair of ankle boots (for winter, autumn) or sandals (for spring, summer) would be nice!

Now, if you are a bit like me, you have a wee box of bracelets in your room but you never really reach for it.. but just grabbing a bracelet could make your whole outfit look like you put more effort into it than you actually did.

Another easy one is to do a nice hairstyle, or just different than you normally would go for (See my previous post for some inspiration).

Next, we have a jacket or something to put over your top, so you can take it on or off if you feel like a change throughout the day!

And last but not least, you could do your nails. Even just slapping on a couple of coats of nail polish could brighten up your whole look! They don’t even need to be fancy, just as long as you like them.

Hope you enjoyed and this can help you,

Bye xx

My Top 5 Favourite Movies!

Hello again xo

If you are like me, the perfect night in is being snuggled up in PJs,  face mask to the ready (See the previous post) and a movie on the TV.

I have A LOT of favourite films but I thought I would share with you all a few. (They aren’t in any particular order by the way)

  • Annie (The new version is fab, but the older version is really good also!)
  • Beauty and the Beast… and basically all the Disney movies imaginable😂
  • Princess Diaries
  • Princess Diaries 2
  • LOTR – a really great series of films (and books). Not the usual “girly” movie but it is really interesting and once you start watching it you really don’t want to switch it off!

Those are just a few of the movies that I love, hope next time you are in the search for a new DVD this might help😊

See you next time!

Some of my Favourite Skincare Products

Hey, Y’all!  Welcome back to my website.

Today I thought I would write about some of my go-to skincare products.

Nivea Soft Moisturising Cream

This is my everyday moisturiser. Some of the benefits are that it contains Jojoba Oil and Vitamin E. You can use it for your face, body or hands so it is really great to take if you are travelling, and a bonus is that it isn’t that dear!

Zoella Double Créme Body Cream

One of my favourite things about this body cream is its smell. It smells DIVINE.

One the back of the tube it says :

“Treat yourself to a dollop of indulgence with this macaron scented body cream: Enriched with nourishing sweet almond oil, cacao and honey, it will leave your skin feeling beautifully soft, silky and smelling irresistible. Gently massage into clean skin until fully absorbed for a soft fragrant finish.”

Doesn’t that just sound heavenly?

Creightons Charcoal Detoxifying Clay Mask 

This claims to:

  • Draw out dirt
  • Absorb excess oil
  • Deep cleanse

This face mask leaves my skin feeling silky and smooth and advises use around 2 times a week. A big plus is that you can purchase for a really great price. I purchased mine for 99p! Also, there is a matching cleanser and scrub but I haven’t got them.

L’oréal Age Perfect Night Hydrating Cream

This cream claims that it is an “age” perfecting cream, but I think it is great when your skin is dry and just needs a rehydrating boost. However, I wouldn’t advise it with people with more oily skin, as it is so hydrating and creamy itself.

Simple Micellar Cleansing Water 

This is one of my go-to makeup removers. It also cleans and cleanses your skin – perfect for a simple night time routine. It is good for sensitive skin as it is gentle and feels just like water but works as well as any makeup remover. It says it has no “harsh chemicals’ which is always good and kind for your skin.

Zoella Winter Wonder Hand

winter but the scent is good for all the year round, unlike other Christmas hand creams. It contains Peony and Mint and smells so fresh and yet cosy at the same time. It is really good for dry hands or just if you want a subtle gorgeous scent to sniff all day!

 

My 3 Favourite Hairstyles

Hello again 😃

Today I thought I would share some of my favourite hairstyles for school or just day to day life. I would call my hair medium to long length, so my hairstyles are based along that!

1.  French plait

This hairstyle is very easy to do,  yet it is very effective. It is like an upgrade from a simple plait. The technique for doing it on yourself is hard to master but if you keep practising I am sure you will get it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2.  Top Bun

In the photo below the bun isn’t that high up on my head but it is still nice. This is a quick, easy way to get your hair completely out of your way for day to day or school. It doesn’t need to be perfectly neat, as you can see from my example mine isn’t. This look is created by simply putting your hair in a ponytail, twisting is round and fastening it with kirby grips.

3.  Crinkled

This is one of my favourite ways to wear my hair. I  achieve this look by after having a bath/shower at night put my hair in a couple of simple plaits and leave them in until the morning. This makes your hair look voluminous and wavy and I just really like it!

Why I started a blog!

Hi! For my first post, I thought it would be suitable to tell you all why I am starting a blog.

I have had a website since 2013, and I just thought of it as a fun way to spend my time. I posted poems I made, short stories and posts about my favourite creatures ever, dogs. I am ashamed to say that for the past few months I basically neglected my website and forgot to post regularly and just recently I thought I should start over again and redesign it all. As it was going to be a new beginning completely, I wondered what the overall theme of the website should be, and I really liked the idea of a blog, and, here I am writing my first blog post!

I am excited for what this has in store, and will try to post regularly.

I hope that you can come along on this journey with me!

Until next week,

Kezia xx
