SANDALS GIFTED: JONAK, TOP AND SKIRT GIFTED: AND OTHER STORIES, EMMA WALLACE

I love a white sandal with a low heel for summer. They go with literally anything, and I always find there’s something vintage looking about a sandal in white. I lived in my Topshop ones all last year and although they have now sadly sold out I’ve linked an ASOS alternative below. I’ve just got the strappy Arket ones below and I’ve now got my eye on those Office ones. And the Gucci ones. And the Chloe ones. Sigh. Oh and PSA I got some beautiful tan Chloe mules from Vestiaire Collective so if you’re looking for designer ones without the price tag it’s definitely worth checking them out for preloved/vintage ones!

And the best accessory for those sandals? A shell anklet of course. I got mine from Etsy.

Following on with my second instalment of the ten best, an absolute wardrobe staple of mine (especially now we are headed into Spring) is definitely a peasant blouse. For me, it has to be specifically cream, with billowy sleeves (usually long but I’ve included some short sleeve options) and worn with a pair of vintage of Levis for my go to off-duty everyday look. My version of jeans and a nice top if you like.

Ok so technically this Leon and Harper one below isn’t exactly a typical peasant blouse but it’s pretty close, and I’m so in love with the vintage feel of it.

I’ve got tons, from vintage embroidered classics to my Chloe-esqe H&M one below I never fail to get compliments on. I bought it last year but they’ve got similar at the moment, and Free People are the ultimate in bohemian peasant blouses, I’ve got one of theirs that I’ve had for years and never get tired of it.

Well, gone are the days when I used to give my face a quick wipe with a make up wipe before bed (the horror, please don’t use them EVER they just smear your makeup around your face) and long gone are the days I used to fall asleep in my make up, (wayyyy more often than I’d like to admit) these days I’m very partial to a facial cleanser, so I thought I’d review my top five for you.

In no particular order, I’ve been using (most) of these cleansers since last year a few are a little more new but they are all a mix of different types-something that can be a bit overwhelming when it comes to deciding on which cleanser to try. I’ve got an oil, a cream, and a foam amongst them.

 

Don’t get me wrong it’s not just products of course, I did have facial recently  and I look after myself and (try) to have a good diet that includes drinking tonnes of water, but I’ve really noticed a difference with looking after my skin properly, which now my skincare routine includes cleansing, toning, serums and rose oil before bed. I’ll do a next beauty post on the serums I use but without further ado let’s get started with the cleansers.

 

First: Trilogy Cream Cleanser

Second: Lowengrip Cell Renewal Facial Cleanser

Third: Freshly Cosmetics Rose Quartz Cleanser

Forth: Löwengrip Instant Glow Cleansing Foam

So basically they’re all great in different ways, and I love to alternate them depending on how my skin is looking and feeling. They all use all natural ingredients so they don’t irritate or harm your skin, and I’ve found all these particular ones work well to balance the oil in my skin. 

They are all natural and organic, and are all cruelty free.

 

Have you tried any of these? Let me know!

So, I’ve decided to start a weekly (or bi-weekly) post in which I share my top ten of different trends I’m loving at the moment. I feel I needed to resurrecte this blog a little as I’ve again being neglecting it, I’m sorry! So I’m starting to get a structure of posts at least, instead of just every now and then.

Basket bag: Dream Baskets from Etsy

On my last count I appear to have at least 10 wicker bags, so it’s safe to say I’m a fan. I’ve got a mix from independent brands, high street, vintage to Spanish market finds, and yes EVERY ONE IS DIFFERENT AND I LOVE THEM ALL. You can NEVER have too many wicker bags in my opinion. And they go with every single outfit, I promise you. I might go as far as to say that they are quite possibly the easiest bag to style. My favourite wicker/straw bag has to be the Birkin basket though, it’s a classic.

So, without further ado, here are my top ten wicker bags picks (or basket or straw or I don’t know woven) not wooden though they are a separate category altogether…. but whatever you like to call them, I’m fondly referring to them as wicker.

Last night I was kindly invited to a VERY exclusive Samsung launch for the new Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+ phone, I was representing Very at the event. So the event was held at the Tobacco Docks in London (which I’ve never been to before) and I got to see the launch of the new Samsung Galaxy phone and learn about all its features, as well as being the first to try the brand new handset for myself. They also launched the new Samsung Galaxy Watch Active and Galaxy Buds on the same evening, both which sync perfectly with the Galaxy S10 phone. So to let you know in all these photos I’m using the S10+ in prism white, which by the way is the prettiest pearly white, I’m in love, it’s almost like a holographic feel. Very snazzy.

So….to get right into it, let’s start by talking about my favourite things that the new Samsung Galaxy S10+ phone has to offer. One of the key features I absolutely love on the Samsung Galaxy S10 is the ability to shoot and upload straight to Instagram no messing, they have partnered exclusively with Instagram on this, so there’s no need to keep switching between apps etc. Which makes life much easier !

The camera is also amazing, the phone has an 6.3 inch Infinity-O display and triple lens camera at the back, which has ultra-wide and ultra-zoom.  And there’s also a dual-lens camera (with wide angle) on the front for all your selfie needs. They also included a super cool blurred, swirl, spiral and black and white back ground effects on the front camera.

And if that’s not enough, the phone also charges OTHER PHONES with its PowerShare feature. I know. This is the really cool part. So if your friend is out of battery they can use your phone to charge theirs. And with the new Samsung Galaxy Watch Active and Galaxy Buds, both of which you can charge using your phone too.

Oh and did I mention it’s dust and water proof too?

It is launching on March 8th and is now available to pre-order through Very.co.uk here.

They have the exclusive white and black S10+ with a whole 1TB of storage, now that’s a lot !

If you want to find out more head over to the link here to Very for all the information you need

Thanks so much for having me Samsung and Very! I can’t wait to properly try the phone out, will report back !
