Summer Jewellery Edit 2016 + GIVEAWAY!

I'm finally back from my *wifi-less* trip, so I can share my 2016 Summer jewellery edit with the pieces I'm adding to my jewellery collection this season. When it comes to the summer months, I like to wear more gold pieces and statement earrings whenever I can; however some accented pieces, including floral themes, also work well with a light summer look. This seasons Jewellery Edit is extra special as not only is it in collaboration with Kaya Jewellery but we're bringing you a £40 voucher International giveaway at the end of this post. What are your favourite pieces to bring out in the summer? Shopped Kaya Jewellery before?

Summer with YSLs Black Opium

It might not be the scent of the summer, but it's my current favourite and if you ever met me in person, you'd smell this. I don't change from perfume to perfume that often, but each season I like to establish a perfect scent that I'd be happy to sport all the time, encapsulating the essence of what that season means to me that year, fashion and beauty wise. Black Opium from YSL was first introduced to me at a Gemini Woman blogging event last year and I just remember loving everything about it. Since then the smell has lingered on my mind until I finally got it this summer, to take centre stage as my main summer scent. What is your Summer 2016 scent? Do you have a specific fragrance you use often?

Summer Staples w/ JD Williams

Those of you in Britain and some parts of France will know exactly what I'm talking about when I say we've not really experienced proper summer just yet. Whilst I'm eagerly awaiting the consistent hot, lovely weather, there's no harm in preparing my wardrobe for holidays, sunny days and the summer months that will hopefully be coming soon. My favourite summer pieces tend to be flowy skirts, dresses, shirts and shorts paired with sandals or flip flops. Today I'm sharing my favourite JD Williams pieces for the summer, what are yours?

Beauty Travel Kit

Next week I'm going to be travelling in and around the UK and France, which includes multiple train rides, planes and moving from place to place to place. I don't think I've ever travelled this much at once in my whole life, and packing my beauty kit is hard at the best of times. But the key to packing as light and efficient as possible, without sacrificing your health, hygiene and overall look, is packing the right stuff that will serve you whilst you're away. If, like me, you find it so hard to pack lightly when it comes to beauty products, then this post might post might give you a few ideas along the way. What are your most valuable packing tricks?

June Birchbox Unboxing

It's been almost 6 months since I signed up for Birchbox in late December, it's lovely see the variations in products and themes depending on the season. This month, on time this time, for June there are some new products to try out for summer. My current summer obsessions have been berry or floral flavoured products, and shades of a more vibrant, luminescent tone. What are your favourite summer products? What products did you receive this month?

NEW IN: H&M Accessories

A new H&M store has opened up very close to my home and its huge. It includes their homeware, male and female fashion as well as kids and lingerie. I find any excuse to make a trip down there, and this time around I came away with some very affordable accessories I can't wait to put into action. If you live near an H&M or get the opportunity to go to one soon, especially the bigger stores, then I highly recommend looking at their current collections as well as maybe picking up some Home ware, because theirs is second to none (and so affordable!). What are your latest accessory purchases?

Sequin Ray Luminising Quad | & Other Stories Beauty

In case you missed it, in my Exploring & Other Stories Skincare post I reviewed and tested 6 skincare products from their collection and was throughly surprised, if you didn't catch it its here. Today, continuing with the & Other Stories Beauty theme, I'm testing out their new Sequin Ray Luminising Quad* a multi purpose highlighting set perfect for the summer. I'm mad about highlighters and was so excited to try this new one out; the formula is slightly different to what I'm used to but appears to have so much range and versatility. Have you explored & Other Stories Makeup yet?
