Rediscovering your Wardrobe

Experimenting with fashion is something I absolutely love. In particular, I actually really enjoy
finding new ways to wear items I've had in my wardrobe for ages. With us all becoming more aware of sustainability and the effects fast fashion can have, it's always good to be thinking about how we can re-wear items we already own and buying things with this in mind. It seems like little step but it's one in the right direction which is what matters.

With this outfit, I paired together two pieces I didn't originally think to until I had a good look through everything in my wardrobe. I loved how the pop of pastel pink looked on top of the bold leopard print pattern! The jumper also has a slight corduroy texture so adds that extra element to the outfit. Of course, under I have layered a black turtle neck for warmth, but also because lets face it, I like how it looks.

The skirt is from Oasis and has a suede texture to it. I honestly love how comfy it is! With it being fairly neutral in colour, you can pair it with so many colours on top depending what you own and prefer.

I've layered with my aviator biker jacket (which I live in) from Zara and my most worn boots from Topshop. My bag is my trusty Oasis tote bag which comes with me most days when I have lots of bits I need to chuck in a go with. Plus, it's black and as much as I love colour, this is just so easy to use and matches everything.  Of course to finish off, I've layered my favourite Missoma necklaces.

OUAI Texturising Hair Spray

Some of my first memories of Youtube are me sitting in my room watching endless amounts of hair tutorials trying to nail all the styles. Some worked, some where massive fails, but it ignited a love and interest for all things haircare. I noticed OUAI Haircare emerging on the scene a while ago. Admittedly, I feel I am slightly late to the party on this one, but none the less I wanted to share my thoughts on one of their products.

The product I've got is the texturising hair spray. As it's description on Cult Beauty reads, it is 'halfway between hairspray and dry shampoo'.  When sprayed into your hair, it adds grip and texture making styling easier whilst also removing oils. Alongside this, it adds volume to your hair, something I love when my hair is feeling flat and oily when its closer to wash day.

So, as I've already hinted, I love using this product. I've used a couple similar ones in the past that left my hair feeling sticky. This however, only gives my hair more texture and lift, something it definitely needs when it is due a wash the next day (because let's face it, lots of us can never be bothered to wash our hair;)). You can spray it in your roots and throughout your hair and also comes out clear so theres is no franticly trying to rub all the white out your hair when you're in a rush on early mornings!

If you're in search of a new haircare product that is easy to use and adds life back into your hair, then this is definitely worth a try.

Have you tried any OUAI Haircare products?

Skincare Spotlight: Pixi

I feel like throughout my teen years, I tried a lot of different skincare products. Some I stuck with and used up, whilst others I'll admit to using on and off and not really seeing through. Pixi has been huge in the skincare industry for a while, and after seeing so many bloggers mentioning the brand I decided I had to get my hands on some of their products.

So the love actually started with the setting spray which I loved but no longer own (this has reminded me I should get one though). This then lead me to purchasing the well-known Pixi Glow Tonic. Applied after cleansing the skin, it is actually one of the first products I've used and noticed my skin look clearer of blemishes and brighter after using for a while. I have now used up my first bottle and am on to my second (hence the full one in the photo).

I then recently got the 'Rose Cream Cleanser' and 'Peel and Polish'. The cleanser does what it says on the tin: cleanses and cleans your skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth like we all want. The peel and polish is like a scrub. I often apply it, brush my teeth, and then wash it off to give it a good couple minutes on my skin. It gets scrubs off that extra layer of dirt from the skin, leaving it SO soft!

What are some skincare products you love?
