What's in my make-up bag...Dodi

Hey guys!

I have been so bad at this blogging thing recently as I have felt totally swamped with uni work, however this weekend I have come back home to my mum and dads to relax and be fed! haha  
As I have a bit of free time this weekend I thought I would do a post about what products I am currently using and that are in my current make-up bag.

The Bag

This bag is from boots and it is by Ted Baker.  I loved that the bag was slightly see through so I can see where everything is inside.  I also loved the shape as it gives easy access to everything with not too much rummaging around.

Chelsea boots/wellies

Hey everyone!

Since the weather is now getting horrible, I decided that I needed a new pair of wellies since my Ted Baker ones decided to burst when I was camping earlier on this year. I was in Office when I came across these little numbers. I have been wanting a pair of chelsea boots for a while but never found a pair that I really liked or that wouldn't get ruined in all the rain that we get here in Glasgow. I thought these were really cute and are actually quite comfy and not too heavy as they are a soft plastic material. They look really cute with jeans and I had them on with a dress the other day which also looked really sweet. They also have them in a glittery silver colour but I thought the black ones would be much more practical.

Thanks for reading!

Body Shop Cleansing Brush

Hi Everyone

A few weeks ago I bought a Cleansing Brush from the Body Shop.  Like pretty much everyone I know I would love the Clarisonic but just can't justify the price.  So, for now, the £4 cleansing brush will need to do.
Bodyshop Cleansing brush
I wanted to wait till I had been using it for a few weeks before I blogged about it because I always feel it is really difficult to judge something when I have only been using it a few days.  At first I thought the bristles felt a bit rough on my skin but I have either got used to it or they have softened.  Think it might be a bit of both.

Since I have started using this brush my skin seems much smoother.  I have enlarged pores, especially on my nose.  Using this brush once a days seems to be reducing this, can't complain really.  I have also noticed a reduction in blackheads and my skin is looking more radiant.  The only pain is that a Clarisonic would be more convenient as it does most of the moving for lazy!  I would definitely recommend this to everyone who wants to improve their skin.

OOTD - preppy

Hey everyone!

Just thought I would do a quick outfit of the day post. I really love the preppy look and wanted to do a post to show you all my new H&M blazer. It is a grey tweed style blazer and I really love the fit of it. It is surprisingly warm and I am still able to wear it at this time of year if I wear a jumper or cardigan underneath it. I am wearing a burgundy shirt from Primark underneath a cream jumper from Topshop which is really soft. My bag is from H&M, I have had this bag for a really long time and its a great size. Unfortunately my bag burst last night which I am quite sad about, but its a good excuse to go shopping for another :).

Shirt - Primark
Jumper - Topshop
Jeans - Primark
Boots - New Look
Blazer - H&M
Necklace - Swarovski
Watch - Swatch

Thanks for visiting!
