What im wearing : Crop top x

. . Hello x
So a few weeks ago I took part in my first ever triathlon, which I absolutely loved and I feel motivated and inspired to do more in the future.
So to celebrate, I went out for the night and seen some Jazz festival. I decided that I didn't really want to get overly done up because I was tired. Therefore I opted for a casual crop top paired with these black ankle grazers.
To add some colour to the outfit I added my turquoise feathered necklace paired with my turquoise/silver blingy ring and silver sparkly heels.
I wore my hair wavy and clipped back to one side with a smoky eye and pink lippie.
Im always wearing brightly coloured lipsticks because a) I love them and b) they make teeth appear whiter !
I got this crop top from H&M Foyleside Buy here'at such a bargain price £3.99 !! I thought for the price that was great and the crop top has a really nice shape to it and the material is also quite nice.
I know in this outfit im showing some tummy skin, which I was never confident about doing before until I began getting into fitness. Therefore if your wanting to wear this top or any crop top, without showing skin follow my top tips.
Wear with highwaisted bottoms or skirts
Wear top over a plain maxi or midi dress to give the appearance of a skirt and top outfit
Wear a longer top underneath to add length
And lastly, always have confidence in yourself and what you wear

Beauty review : Rimmel 9 in 1 BB cream

.  .Hello x
Im here to review my latest beauty must have at the minute: the Rimmel 9 in 1 BB cream.
What is a BB cream? (in my experience)
Through my own experience and definition of a BB or Beauty Balm: a lightweight product, that allows skin to breath, with a more watery consistency than an average foundation - which is a plus as a little goes a long way!!
So a few weeks back I came to the conclusion that my day time make-up was seeming to appear 'too much' for day. As a result I decided to research BB creams and CC creams as well as face tanners. After testing out a few on the inside of my wrist **, I decided that maybe the Rimmel 9 in 1 BB cream would be worth a go, especially as it has a built in SPF 15. 
The product offers to minimise appearance of pores, even skin tone, control shine all day, offer smoothness, soothe sensitive skin, conceal dark circles, help prevent blemishes and provides all day coverage.
In my opinion I feel the product does a lot of what it says on the tin. I apply the product at 8.30am each morning and usually remove the product around 9 or 10 pm, which is over 12 hours wear. At this point there isn't much left on my skin but I would agree that it last through-out the day as it covers my sensitive rosy cheeks all day and helps to combat my oily t-zone !
My tips:
Which colour for me? There are only two colours to choose from : Light and Medium. I chose light as I have a more pale complexion.
TIP apply product to the inside of your wrist and blend in, the colour that fades best into your skin is the correct colour for you.
Application - Use fingertip to dot onto the face (only taking a small amount) and blend in using a foundation brush
Price range £6.99 - At local Medicare, Boots and Superdrug

What im wearing: Culottes x

. . Hello
The 60s / 70s fashion have always been my favourite fashion eras as I love the faux fur, flared jeans, colourful make-up and wavy hair. .
Recently ive been really loving Culottes because they are a good transition piece from Winter - Spring - Summer.
For example the culottes im wearing are very bright and colourful but cover a good bit of leg to keep me warm during the spring when the weather is still a bit cold but looks really sunny. .
Here is a selection of some culottes that are available to purchase online.  .

Here are a few of my tips on wearing culottes . .
Wear a fitted top or shirt to provide shape
When wearing patterned culottes, stay with minimum accessories and a plain top with minimal jewellery
When wearing a culottes jumpsuit, wear a thin belt to help break the look and emphasise your waist
