Face Favourites | DHC & Foreo Luna Mini.

Hello, hello!

Lonnnnng time no post. You may or may not notice that we've had a makeover. I spent my day off doing it last week and have been eager to start getting some posts up since then, but life got in the way.

Anyway, I hope that you are all well and had a great Christmas and New Year. Happy New Year!

Today I thought I would mention a couple of skincare products that I am particularly loving at the moment, and have been since October time.

So! Thang number one that I've been in love with is the DHC Pore Face Wash.  Now, I love a good cleanser, but so many leave me feeling unimpressed. This does not, this is perfect for those of you with enlarged pores, oily and spot prone skin.. all of which I have.

This wash smells like citrus and it lathers up into a rich foam with just the teeniest amount, like smaller than a pea size.. Massage in - rinse - and be left with really fresh feeling, soft skin. It does tighten slightly, but it's so gentle and it does not leave my face feeling dry and uncomfortable like some cleansers. My pores definitely look reduced after this. I use it every morning, I find that it really wakes my skin up and leaves it nice and matte for makeup application.

This next little gadget is more on the pricey side, but is so cool! It's a face cleansing device that I always use in conjunction with my cleansers.. It is small and easy for travel, and the silicone is hygenic to use.. I always (and still do) love the Clarisonic, but you need replacement brushes for that and I haven't got around to getting any, so this is easier because you don't have to replace anything and it's handy for taking places.

This little chap leaves my face feeling thoroughly cleansed and I've found that over time my skin seems brighter and smoother, and most definitely less spotty. It's great for acne scarring too, mine have faded considerably since using this.

It has two sides of silicone nobbly things, and two speed settings, depending on what feels good for you.  The slower speed and less nobbly side is good for more sensitive areas, I like to use it around the eyes. Oh, and I've charged it only once, and it's still going - it lasts for up to 300 uses from one charge. Honestly, if you were thinking of getting a cleansing device I would say this is one to try. I love it. :)

So there you go.. Gentle eased back into the blog with a post of a couple of faves. 

Now tell me yours!

- The Tesco Hudl 2!

I just love technology and new gadgets! Doesn't everyone? I recently got a Hudl 2 and I have been loving it! It's pink, it's handy and it is the perfect mini computer for travel, or just when you're snuggled on the sofa or in bed and you don't want to get the laptop out.
I won't say too much here about it, I'll just post my video on it, because I think it's better to see how something looks and works sometimes.
As I said in the video, it would make the perfect gift for you or a loved one if you're looking for something like this. I really can't fault it. It runs smoothly, the batter lasts really well, it is lightweight, the sound and screen quality are great and you can use it for reading, writing, social media, listening to music and watching videos (and so much more).

It doesn't just come in pink either! You get pick the colour you like the best.

Check the Hudl 2 out! Just £129.

♥ Makeup Revolution Love! ♥

I was so excited when I first heard about the new makeup brand Makeup Revolution and I couldn't wait to get my hands on some of the products to try. I had seen reviews and they were all positive, and the prices are so crazy good! So I got some lovely bits from them to try out and here are my thinkings on them!

Plus Size OOTD: The Fancy Frock!

I'll start with a little back story first. My brother got married in August (outfit post here), and when I was shopping with my Mum for an outfit to wear I found a dress in Evans that I fell absolutely in love with, (Link!) it was from Scarlett & Jo (Prom Dress Range) and it was like my dream dress, I picked up the size I thought I'd need and went to try it.. If looked amazing, perfect. It was just *the* dress, ya know?

Only problem was that it was too big and because I am currently losing lots of weight, it seemed pointless. So Mum ran out to get the next size down... They didn't have it, and because the dress was in the sale they didn't have more. I left the shop with a pout and went home and searched the internet to see if I could find it anywhere, or on the Evans website. No such luck.

Fast forward 3 months and I'm casually browsing the Evans sale (as you do!) and I see this dress from the range (the exact same style) and it's on sale, but they don't have the size down that I needed in July. They did have the next size down though (Size 20, FYI) so I thought I'd order it and give it a go because I love it so much and I thought I might get lucky, or I could slim into it.

I picked it up in store last Wednesday and I love it. It fits and it's perfect.. It's not the black spotty one I originally wanted but it's just as pretty, navy blue and flowers are not usually a me thing, but I feel good in it - I think it's the style of the dress. It's so me and so well fitting, flattering and gorgeous.

The point of all that chatter was to do this outfit post and show the dress on, sooo...
Pretty, huh? I love how it flatters my shape and skims my hips, bum and tum. I am very happy with my purchase! I now want to get this dress in every version they have. Like THIS! Sooo tempted.

Get it here: Evans, Scarlett & Jo Navy Floral Print Prom Dress (£30!) But they have very limited sizes.
