My new favourite skin-care brand - Kiehl's Since 1851

I am a huge fan of trying out new skin-care products, so when my friend's introduced me to this brand I was over the moon. It is honestly the most effective skin-care range out there that works wonders for my skin. If you have seen my old skin-care posts then you would have realised that I used to use basic, simple products that can be purchased in your local drugstore. I never thought that spending more money on skin-care would actually benefit my skin as I believed that cheaper products work the same as the higher end products. I was definitely wrong, at least with this brand!

Initially, for a face-mask, this comes across as being very pricey; however, it is great value for money as you only need a tiny scoop to completely cover your face. I have never used a face-mask which spreads so easily and which does not require a huge amount of it to work. A thin layer is awesome, and works wonders. 

It has a rich texture that instantly feels refreshing on the skin. I find that this mask helps to break out spots that are under the skin or haven't come out fully yet, and after 2 days your skin is clear of these breakouts, which without the mask, would have been present for a much longer period of time. I personally have really problematic skin, that is far more on the oily skin. So for me, this has been a life saver.

As you can see from this photo, the texture is very thick and you literally need the amount shown to cover your face with a thin layer! I did not believe this when the woman showed me in the shop but it is true, so it will last for months on months. 

I find that this mask is great at minimising pore size which obviously prevents breakouts from occurring. It works to draw out toxins and dirt from your skin to ensure that your skin is looking flawless. 

The second product that I love from Kiehl's is this Blue Herbal Gel Cleanser  - £18.00

I actually used a tester of this for 2 weeks before using this big bottle and it is safe to say that this will be my new cleanser for the foreseeable future. Like the face-mask, this product only requires a tiny amount to work to it's full potential which means that you don't have to buy bottles end on end because one lasts ages. I have been using this for the past 3 weeks and the bottle is still nearly full which is a first for a cleanser!

It is oil free which is great for my skin and it works against acne problems. If you suffer with oily spot prone skin then this is definitely the one for you. The best thing about this product is the fact that you can tell that it is working, for example, when your rubbing it into your face, you can feel how it successfully cleans your skin thoroughly.

So, this is for sure my new favourite skin-care brand, which I would recommend to both women and men. It actually has a men's skin-care part so it caters for both genders specifically. The shops are located in shopping malls such as Bluewater and Selfridges. 

Let me know in the comments what your favourite skin-care brand is and if you have tried out Kiehl's before.

Exploring Camden

Yesterday, myself and Coral visited Camden, London. London is one of my favourite places in the UK and I spend a lot of my free time shopping in London and discovering new places. I have always wanted to go to Camden but I always find myself wandering up and down Oxford Street instead, but we planned a trip specifically for Camden so that we would definitely go. 

As soon as we arrived, I knew that it was right up my street... with the casual tourist shops, little market stalls and best of all; the gorgeous food stands and cafes. The town/market as a whole was unique and extremely different to what I am used to but it was definitely somewhere I'd visit again. 

We started by wondering along the market and we looked in the occasional shop. The only negative about this location is that there are quite a few rough people and the people in the tourist shops get annoyed if you don't by anything. We then visited the food market, which was by far my favourite part of the town. I am obsessed with food and I am a complete foodie so this part was what drew me in to this towns beauty. We had a cup of Jamaican Rum, which was hot and possibly the best drink I've ever had. If you are planning on visiting Camden, make sure to find this stall! 

Here are a few photo's that I took:

The style of the shops exterior is so abstract and you would struggle to find this style somewhere else. 

So that's a brief sum-up of my day, if you live near/in London or your coming on holiday here, I would definitely recommend  that you visit Camden, there is a direct tube from London Bridge or Charing Cross and it is so worth visiting!

Love, Em x

Saturday, 4 March 2017 Collab | Famous for Fashion

Hey lovelies!

*Today I have a collaboration with They literally sell everything and their clothes are unreal! 

So I received this beautiful dress. This is completely different to what I would usually choose to wear as I don't consider myself to be that tall so I usually stick to above the knee dresses but I have to admit I fell in love with this dress! 

It fits amazing and really allows you to flaunt the best parts of your body. I would definitely purchase clothes from this brand in the future!

The quality also met my expectations, it was super comfy and an amazing style. I think this dress would be perfect for a night out and the colour of it just gives it a classy look. 

Here are a few photos:

Q: What are your thoughts on this dress?

Lots of love, Em x

Haul: Choice, Topshop and Boux Avenue

Hello bbs
So today i'm back with a haul, my favourite posts to write! I was not expecting to go shopping for clothes yesterday, I actually went out to get my prom dress (WHICH IS BEAUTIFUL BY THE WAY!) and on my way home I went to Bluewater to get a few purchases as I really want to change up my fashion. I have always worn quite basic fashion, the skinny jeans and crop top look, so I have decided as one of my 2017 goals, to change up my fashion and wear completely different clothes. Time to purchase a whole new wardrobe, literally! I am getting a new wardrobe, it is being delivered in a few weeks so I may do a blog post on that. So here's what I brought: 

I have heard to many good things about this shop but I have never actually gone in so I decided to just have a look, without realising that I'd actually find some of my favourite purchases in here. If you don't know what Choice is, it is a shop which sells all designer brands including: Michael Kors, Canada Goose and Moncler. So basically all the top designers. It's a shop which I wouldn't shop in all the time because it is obviously high priced, but their clothes are gorgeous so I had to get a few bits!

So firstly, me and my mum purchased the exact same shawl! I tried it on and actually loved is as soon as, then my mum tried it on and also loved it! I love it and I can't wait to wear this with jeans to make an outfit a little more unique and take it up to a more fashionable level.

The material is so nice and it is so cozy and warm. Perfect for this time of the year. 

This is the second piece that I picked up in Choice. I thought it was so simple but so cute and would look cute with a skirt and knee high boots or just with leggings on a casual day. It has a loose fit and is just comfy all round.

I think that the pink and the grey really compliments each other and the design is suited to many types of clothing.


Jersey - £26.00

I have been attracted to this style of jeans for about a month now, but I wanted to try them on before purchasing them. Well I tried some on yesterday and what can I say.. I literally adore them. The fit around the waste and the bottom is so tight but the middle is quite baggy and this style really complimented my figure. 

I decided to buy a lace bodysuit to go with these jeans. The top is so gorgeous, the only down side is that you can't wear a bra underneath but that did not put me off as I couldn't care!

Bout Avenue♥ 

I knew I had to get these as soon as I saw them. The design really attracted me to these and they are made of satin material which is honestly the most comfy ever!

The design of these is really unique and I thought that the little black triangle in the middle top made them really different to other pj's,

Sometimes I just want to live in dressing gowns, like in the winter they are the cosiest and comfiest things ever. I have had my fleece dressing gown for over 2 years so I decided that it was time to buy a new one. This one is a beautiful design and really cute so I thought I'd purchase this.

I love the warm material and I will definitely be wearing this to bed tonight! Love love love. 

So, that's it for today's haul! Let me know your favourite pieces from it in the comments.
