Fashion Wishlist May 2016

May is a new month, and that means I have new pieces and accessories, I am currently lusting after. The beauty about being a fashion blogger, is that I can spend time browsing various online shops, and pretend it is work related, lol..

This month’s fashion wish list is all about summer, holidays, bags, shoes, jewellery and sunglasses. Check them out below:

 

Vivienne Westwood Turner Crossbody Bag

I adore Vivienne Westwood Bags in general, but I am yet to own any, so maybe 2016 would be the year of having a Vivienne Westwood in my wardrobe. I love this Turner Crossbody Bag, it is so beautiful. It would be a great bag to take on holiday, because I would have my hands free. I love the fact that it is gold, it would be super easy to style this up with a lovely dress or down with a pair of jeans and t-shirt. I will be watching this beauty very closely.

 

Aquazzura Pompom Embellished Raffia Sandals

This bold red elegant t-strap sandals is a stunner, perfect for the new season, and great to take on holiday. I am in the summer/holiday mood, and I find this beauty so tempting. It will look great with a pair of leggings or skinny jeans. I have a similar/budget-friendly option I got from Next, some weeks ago. That will be appearing on the blog soon, so keep reading.

 

Christian Louboutin Amal 100 Ostrich & Leather Sandals

This Christian Louboutin Amal 100 Ostrich & Leather Sandals is one of the new additions in the spring/summer collection. I adore the chic, cage-like silhouette. It would divine paired with a mini dress or skirt. I can picture the entire outfit in my head already. The only thing putting off this beauty is the very heavy price tag of almost a £1000.

 

Gucci Linea A Hobo Embossed Leather Shoulder Bag

Having a Gucci bag is the ultimate fashion accessory to have for most women. However, the heavy price tag makes it almost impossible for many, including myself, but it shouldn’t stop us from dreaming right? I love this particular Gucci shoulder bag. The finishing, the embossed distinctive logo, hand-stitched top handle and a detachable shoulder strap, makes it so mouth-watering.

 

Linda Farrow Classic Sunglasses

I am always on the hunt for a good pair of sunglasses, and this beauty is currently on my radar. I love the classic summer style. I will be watching this one.

 

What do you think of my fashion wish list? Which is your favourite item?

Product Review: Boots No 7 Beautiful Skin Quick Thinking Wipes & Oil-Absorbing Sheets

No 7 Quick Thinking Wipes Image

I walked into my local Boots store one sweet day to get some supplies for my toddlers, only for me to find myself in the beauty section. I promised myself I was only looking around, window shopping they call it, but after a few minutes of window shopping, I found myself heading to the counter, with some beauty supplies in my basket. The friendly lady at the counter quickly attended to me, and while I was waiting, my eyes fell on a No 7 Beautiful Skin Quick Thinking Wipes pack. Now I am usually not a No 7 fan, don’t think I have ever used any of its products, I usually see the brand as one of those brands that does not make products for my skin tone, but this product got me interested, and I decided to try as I am always on the lookout for face wipes and cleansers that do the work quickly and effectively.

I saw the price tag was £7, but I didn’t think much of it, until the sales lady doubled checked with me to confirm I was happy to buy it. That made me think again about the price, and whether it was too pricey for just 30 wipes, but I decided to have it anyway. I also got the Boots Oil-Absorbing Sheets and I have tried both products for weeks now.

Here is the product description for No 7 Beautiful Skin Quick Thinking Wipes –

No7 Beautiful Skin Quick Thinking Wipes are suitable for all skin types and remove even waterproof mascara.

Specially created for when you’re short of time, these gentle, fragrance free wipes sweep away impurities and remove all traces of make-up, even waterproof mascara.

With pro-vitamin B5 to moisturise and soften, plus extracts of witch hazel and fennel to clear pores and leave your skin feeling smooth and fresh.

Here are my thoughts:

PROS

  1. I found the wipes easy and convenient to use. You basically just take a wipe, and wipe your entire face, and it removes all makeup.
  2. I love the fact that it takes off waterproof makeup too.
  3. It is great for all skin types and tones.
  4. It is great to take away with you on holidays and trips, or when you are too busy to cleanse your face properly.
  5. I like the resealable pack. The packaging is pretty.
  6. It is great for sensitive skin, I have one, so I know.
  7. It is fragrance free, which is fab.
  8. It is fine for daily use.

 

CONS

  1. For 30 wipes, £7 is a bit a pricey, but it does the job and  I do get Boots Advantage points so it is OK.

Overall, I do recommend this product. It performs brilliantly and it is a great handy product to have around if you can afford it.

 

Boots Oil Absorbing Sheets Image

 

Here is the product description for Boots Oil-Absorbing Sheets –

These soft sheets are impregnated with salicylic acid to help prevent spots. It quickly and easily removes excess oil and shine. It can be used over make-up without smudging.

Here are my thoughts:

PROS

  1. These sheets remove excess oil and shine, without smudging the makeup.
  2. It is quite affordable at £3.99 for a pack of about 48 sheets.
  3. It creates an instant matte complexion.
  4. It is easy to apply, you can use it without a mirror, while you are on the go.
  5. It is great for the oily/combination skin.

CONS

  1. None.

This is a fantastic product. I recommend this Boots Oil-Absorbing Sheets to anyone struggling with an oily/combination skin. You will be needing this especially now that the warm weather is almost here.

 

What are your thoughts on both products? Have you used any of them? Drop me a comment, let’s chat.

Thanks for reading and have a great day.
