The Ordinary

Good morning…well afternoon on Friday June 23rd 2017,

Whilst powering through the tonne of stuff shipped home from university started download (2)yesterday I thought I would share with you my thoughts on one of the most talked about affordable skincare brands on the market right now and the few products that I have tried from them that I love. If you don’t know The Ordinary hit the market with a big bang back in 2016 created by Brandon Truaxe the founder of many other gorgeous skincare brands such as NOID, The Abnormal Beauty Company, Deciem, Hylamide and many more. The Ordinary aims to be honest and provide good skincare with ingredients that are proven to work at a very affordable price.

I have only tried a couple of products from them so far and I really like all of them so fardownload (3) and I cant wait to try some more although they are not that easy to get hold of but, when they are in stock I usually order from ASOS. The first thing I really like is the Advanced Retinoid 2% at £8, I’m not going into the science as while I understand some of it I am nowhere near an expert and therefore will leave the link to the website here  where you can go and read more about the retinoid as well as the whole range. This emulsion I use at night after cleansing and my acid toner but before my moisturiser- only a few drops as you really dont need much and during the day I do make sure that I am using some form of SPF. I like this product because it is really light and absorbs into the skin quickly not leaving m face feeling sticky.

Alongside this I use the Salicylic Acid 2% solution £4 for 15ml, I apply a few drops to imagesfreshly cleansed skin to help prevent any spots but I may also target this on specific blemishes as needed. As a beta hydroxyl acid, this product exfoliates the skin and offers to fight the appearance of blemishes as well as visibly better skin over time and continued use. Again I really like this product however out of all of them this is the one that leaves my skin feeling the stickiest and you really don’t get very much product but my current bottle has lasted just over a month and I am needing to re-order pretty soon.

The last things that I have tried from the range are the primers, having tested out both images (1)the high-spreadability fluid primer which comes in a bottle similar to the one above and my favourite the high-adherence silicone primer. This uses advanced adaptive silicones to act as a matte, hydrating, blurring primer for makeup that looks higher in definition and adheres for longer.  This does have that thick silicone feel so of you don’t like that then this is not the product for you and I love how my makeup looks using this primer at £4 I think this is definitely worth the money!

As always I hope this has been of some use to you but definitely go and check out the website as that is much better at explaining what everything does and this is definitely the range to try out if you are just getting into skincare.

I hope you all have a good Friday and weekend!!

Dior Addict Lip Tattoo and update

Good morning on Thursday June 22nd,

I hope you are all well and have enjoyed the gorgeous weather we have had here in the UK although right now it is raining but at the same time, it is almost the weekend !!!  I thought I would quickly update you as I have found out that I am graduating in the summer with a 2:1 and now all I need to do is find a job and everything will be on track. Having moved back home there seems to be stuff everywhere and that is more than a little stressful but after I have written this post I am off to sort through the mountains of clothes that seem to have just appeared. I also wanted to share a new purchase which has very quickly become one of my favourites. I realise that this is a  bit of a mess but recently I have really found it difficult to focus enough to sit down in front of my laptop and right a post for you but at the same, I have really wanted to focus on my blog and getting it how I want it.

I want to talk about is a new release from Dior, the lip tattoo range particularly in the colour cherry which is my current favourite. These products are actually the first long wear lip tint by Dior, with it’s 10 hours hold. I love the comfortable and light formula of this product combined with the no-transfer finish which means that you don’t have to worry about smearing this everywhere which is a constant worry for me when wearing any lip which isn’t a nude. I also really like the sheer colour of this product which I think that these products are great if you do want to the brightness of a liquid lip but rather enhances our natural lip colour. It also doesn’t take that long for these products to “dry” as just a few seconds after application, the formula adheres to the lips with an incredibly comfortable no-makeup feel- perfect for summer.

download

The lip tattoo comes in a range of 6 colours going from a pale nude to a very summery berry meaning that I think that there is a shade for all skin types. The shade Cherry 761 has been identified as being the most universal colour and it is easy to see why as it is a bold pink which again makes this colour really great for summer but I can see myself continuing to wear this into the fall.

At £25 these are high end and I do want to attempt to find a dupe for you but I highly recommend that you head down to your local counter and have a play, this is one of the most expensive lip products I have purchased being much more a drug store girl but I think this is well worth the money.

I’m sorry for the lack of photos but for some reason I can’t get them off the camera and onto my laptop which is probably very close to death right now so I just have the one, hopefully, we will be back up and running for next time.

I hope you all have a good rest of the week and there will be another post hopefully over the weekend so keep your eyes peeled!

 

 

 

aeroplane essentials

Good Afternoon everyone, 

I hope you are all having a good weekend so far and here in the UK it finally feels like summer with the weather being amazing! Today was also my last week at my placement and it was really sad to say goodbye to all the children that I have come to know and love  but as I am also moving out of my university house it was no longer practical to keep going but I have made some good friends and I hope to stay in contact with all of them! As I am currently surrounded by boxes and there isn’t much else to update you with combined with the ever looming summer holidays I thought I would share with you some of my holiday which I have taken on holiday before and will continue to do so this year. Due to the amount of stuff I have decided to make this into a couple of posts starting with this one going on to cover sunscreens,  top clothing picks, shoes, skincare, and make-up.  

The Plane 

  1.   Earplugs, eye mask etc: Depending on the length of your flight you might want ear plugs, a toothbrush and toothpaste and an eye mask. If I am going on a long haul flight then I also like to take a couple of face masks as your skin becomes dry on the plane and also it helps to pass them time. Whilst some airline do offer these products I think that it is better to take your own just in case and really they don’t take up a lot of space in your carry on.
  2.  Painkillers and anti-bacterial: Planes are full of germs as everyone breathes in the same circulated air and more often than not I have ended up with a cold or really irritating cough on the way to my holiday destination. I always pack painkillers as they already feature in my daily bag but I take both Paracetamol and Ibopurafen primarily to help with headaches more than anything else as the last thing I want to do is spent a good couple of hours in a high-pressure environment with a pounding headache. I also make sure to take antibacterial hand gel or a spray as well as hand wipes as again I really don’t want to catch anything and it’s easier than getting up to wash my hands. I really like the Soap and Glory hand gel at £2.50 which doesn’t completely dry out your hands and smells real good!
  3. Moisturiser– Hydration will literally be sucked from your skin whilst on a flight so take a thick and nourishing cream such as Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream (£70) to lather on when your face feels a little dry. I know this is a total luxury and there and great ones on the highstreet but I have found this great for those long haul flights. As I am heading over to Portugal this summer I wont take anything like this as it is just too hot, but instead decant a little of my L’Oreal Hydra Genius if I really want to.  
  4. Hair- Currently I have bleached hair which is actually going lighter in a few weeks and so I do have a couple of must have things to protect it but that is another post. I always travel with my hair up either in a messy bun or a ponytail but usually plaited just to keep it out of my face. A couple of grips, spare hair bands and a brush always have a place in my carryon luggage. 
  5. Swimming costume- Over recent years I have found myself slipping a bikini into my bag to take on the flight just in case something happens to my case or I really just want to head straight down to the pool- this way there is no need to hunt through my case. I am planning to do a whole post on bikini and beach wear but my current favorite is the Scallop Edge Bikini from Warehouse which I brought in the stunning purple color through ASOS at £34 for the set.
  6. Sunscreen- If you take only one item on holiday, let it be this. There is nothing more important when it comes to health and beauty than taking care in the sun. I don’t use anything lower than SFP 30 and pack both a  body sun cream and a face SPF. Whilst these usually travel in my main suitcase I do take a small travel mini in my bag either for top up whilst away or for that first hit on hot weather. One of my favourites is the PIZ BUIN® Ultra Light Dry Touch Face Fluid SPF30 50ml at £9. Taking this on the plane means that everything liquid needs to be under 100ml and already adding an SPF into my daily routine means that I don’t think I will bother this year. 
  7. Sunglasses- Putting on your sunnies as you step out of the plane really makes you feel on holiday and whilst I take more than one pair I defiantly have some in my carry on. Currently, I am loving the River Island Flat Lense Metallic Sunglasses at £14 through ASOS as well as the Jeepers Peepers Flat Lens Cat Eye Sunglasses at £24  again through ASOS. 8. Entertainment- Having something to do in an essential on any flight and whilst I do take plenty of books away with me, more often than not I turn to music or my iPad on flights either binge watching my current series at it is now possible to download Netflix and Amazon prime. My current favorite is Blood Line whilst I await the return of Suits and Supernatural although I have gone back and watched right from the beginning more than once! I also make sure that I have a plug charger as well as portable one to make sure that I don’t miss out on anything whether it is the stunning scenery or tense ending to an episode.

    That’s it for now as otherwise, I think this post could go on for a really long time! I hope you found it somewhat interesting to read:D

Until next time,

Emily xx

Monday June 12th 2017

Hello everyone,

I didn’t  really know what to write about for this post so it has kinda turned into a mixture of things. As Ikem-chong-nang-la-roche-posay-anthelios-xl-ultra-light-fluid-spf-50-50ml-10-768x538 am writing this I am travelling back home for a few days although since finishing university all I seem to be doing is travelling back and forward between Nottingham and Home and whilst this does only take  2 hours on the train  the ever changing bed and darkness of the room has completely thrown off my sleep patterns which I have to say are pretty bad anyway through the all nighters of a dissertation to binge watching on Netflix. I am in no way complaining about being able to have a staBle roof over my head as I know there are plenty of people who have it far worse than I do but combined with finishing off my placement and packing up the flat I feel (and look) exhausted with the dark circles under my eyes only getting darker !!

Along with this fascinating update about my life I thought i would tie in a product review  as entering my 20s I made the decision to really set up and work on a skin care routine moving from just using a foaming cleanser and micellar water  I have no a 5 step routine in the evenings and I am always looking to change and try new products which I want to share with you as I discover new favourites or those that just didn’t work out for me. So moving into products such as Retinoids and acids art night it is really important that you use a good SPF not every day if you are not spending any time in the sunshine and here in the UK the weather seems to be changing all the time. As we move into the warmer weather I thought I would share my current SPF favourite which is great both as part of an acid based skin Clare routine but also if you want to build another layer of protection underneath your everyday make-up routine.

The product that I want to share with you today is the Anthelios XL Ultra Lights Fluid SPF 50+ by La Roche-Posey. This is a  high broad-spectrum protection sunscreen fluid which has a very light texture which is very different to the classic sunscreens that I was used to which are often ver thick and heavy but the smell always take you back to your holiday and I use the version for normal to combination skin. This product is really easy to apply and doesn’t leave my skin feeling sticky which is what I really like about this product as well as the fact that there is no odd looking white cast and it does sit well under foundation. I also love that this product offers broad, and photostable UVA/UVB protection with an optimal SPF of 50+ which means that I don’t have to worry about using multiple products to ensure that I am covered and the fact that it is water resistant helps too. However,  are spending long periods of time outside in the sunshine you do need to reapply regularly.

Overall I really like this product and will definitely repurchase it, the only thing I would say if that I don’t bother with it if I am spending the day in front of my laptop and only popping out to the local shops because it really isn’t necessary but for those days relaxing on the beach or in the garden this is one of my favourite products and it is easily built into your existing routine.

I hope you enjoyed this mixture of things, as I am still moving forward and backward over the next couple of weeks I think I will keep it like this and then re-evaluate from there. I also really want to do a couple of posts on holiday essentials so let me know if this is something you would be interested in.

Until next time,

Something new- A product review

Hello and welcome back,Pixi-Caroline-Hirons-Double-Cleanse-Review-2-800x727

With my exams finished and being home for the week I thought that I would actually concentrate and work on my blogs so I am starting p this week with something totally different and not at all related to university as I want to share with you my latest skincare love. Having been a long time fan of balm based cleansers I was more than excited to try the Double Cleanse collaboration between Caroline Hirons and Pixi.

If you are unsure of the double cleanse process it is basically where you cleanse once to remove your make-up before going in again to cleanse the skin. This product as an oil based step one which starts as a solid balm and then transforms into an oil as you work it into the skin breaking down all make-up from red lips to waterproof mascara. I then remove is with a warm flannel, dry the skin before moving onto step 2. The oil doesn’t leave any residue as feels really good to just remove everything at the end of a long day.

Step two is a cleansing cream which again I work into my skin and it is this side which you can use in the morning however especially in the warmer where we are currently experiencing in the U.K. I prefer to just use a micelles water in the mornings with anything else being a little too heavy.  The cream feels really soothing but st the same time like you are giving your skin a really good clean readŷ for the next day. Both sides are un fragranced which and gentle with no nasties so this product is great for any skin type. I would say the only issue would be if you have very oily skin then this might still be too heavy but again you do wash everything off so maybe not.  The cleanser is paraben free, fragrance free and it’s not tested on animals. It’s really non-offensive but also completely effective at the same time!

Once you have removed your make up with the oil  and wiped with an obligatory flannel, a market which Caroline has single handedly kept a float with her advice, it’s time to move on to step 2. The thick and luxurious cream cleanser promotes cell renewal and elasticity with Arginine which Vitamin C boosts collagen and a Peptide Complex helps tackle fine lines. As the cream cleanser is so thick, it feels like a luxurious treat to the skin after removing the days makeup and grime. It feels like a nice pampering treat at the end of a hard day. Neither the oil nor the cleanser leave you feeling greasy. The skin is ready to move on to the skin care products you choose without fuss. Personally, I follow this double cleanse with Pixi’s Glow Tonic which is anothet of Caroline’s recommendations and has quickly become one of my favourites and I do use this both at night and in the mornings. After the tonic I apply a small amount of the Salicylic Acid 2% solution by The Ordinary either all over the face or targeted on specific spots, following with again The Ordinary’s Advanced Retinoid 2% (only in the evening). I let both of these sink in before finishing my routine with L’Oreal’s Hydra Genius Aloe Water which has a really light and cooling gel consistency  which is pefect for the summer months rather than a heavier moisturiser and really helps to moisturise my skin with Hyaluronic acid (a review coming soon)

I am onto my second jar of this product and think that this will continue to be my favourite for a long time to come. If you are in the market for a new cleanser this retails in the UK for £24 which I think is totally worth it and is available online as well as in M and S.

This is something different for my blog but I have really enjoyed writing this and please leave me a comment if you would like to see more reviews or a full skin care routine including SPF.

I hope you have all had a good week and enjoy the weekend!

Manchester.

Hello,

This is a completely unexpected post to be writing this evening and one I didn’t think I would have to write anytime soon after the tragedy that happened in Westminster earlier this year but in light of what happened yesterday evening in Manchester, it seemed only right.  This isn’t going to be an overly long blog piece because, to be honest, I am heart broken. I have friends who go to university in the city and with my brother set to head there in Septemeber I know how beautiful it is dull of culture and community and now it seems like that has been tainted by this act of terrorism which has had such a profound effect on hundreds of people both at the concert and all of their family and friends.

For all I have written about looking into the future after graduation that all seems so insignificant with all those killed and hurt in the explosion and what does it matter when there are people who are willing to strip life rather than see it for the incredible thing  that it is. Studying Sociology and society it really makes you think whether we have really changed that much, I mean there have been some incredible things even within my own lifetime, the Equality Act in 2010 and the legalization of gay marriage and then it all comes back to fear and pain and hurt.

Looking ahead I see myself with a family of my own and I cannot imagine the pain of the parents of the 22 people killed including children who will never see their amazing future. I want a world where this pain really is a thing of the past where the threat of terrorism isn’t there and people can go and do the things that they love like seeing their idol in concert, walk through London or enjoy a good night out clubbing without the fear that they might  never go home.  As the names of the victims are beginning to be released it makes it all that much harder and honestly makes me question the humanity within the 21st century.

I know that people in this amazing city and across the world will come together in a symbol of unity against terrorism and my prayers go out to everyone and with many people still missing I know this will be in the minds of everyone for a long time to come.

Stay safe out there and we stand strong with Manchester

 

I almost didn’t recongise you there

Hello,

Crikey its’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything on here and as I am procrastinating rather than doing the things I am supposed to I thought why not finally get round to updating my blog!

This is officially my last week of my degree until graduation as my one and only exam is on Friday so I am currently cramming a years worth of revision into a week but I’m sure it will be fine. I’ve talked about staring into the void that is life after university before on this blog but now it really is here and cor blimey I’m really not sure I’m ready. On the plus side, I have finally decided that I want to train to become an early years/ pre-school teacher and have somewhat started to plan my career into this field but who knows I might change my mind in a couple weeks. I am currently reaching the end of my placement that I decided to take part in order to enhance my CV and I have totally fallen in love with the class I have been placed with and will miss them so much. I have a couple of weeks left but it just wont be the same and it was this that helped me to decide that teaching is what I wanted to venture into.

With the end of my university experience round the corner I am actually heading back home for a while and off to see TAKE THAT with my mum which I am so excited for. Looking at my calendar I am traveling home and back to my flat more so in the next couple of weeks that I do in a whole year due to the need to finish… I mean start packing up my flat and with a couple of other commitments to see to before graduation plus the fact I need a good date night as we have both been so busy!

I suppose the next thing I need to do is actually start applying for graduate jobs and I know I have promised a post on this and there is one coming I just need to get this exam out the way and then I will be able to concentrate on my blog and which I really want to work on over the next coming weeks. As it is exam season I wish all of you good luck and I hope you have a good rest of the week.

As it is likely there will be no post on Thursday keep an eye out over the weekend. Until then.

What to expect in your first year at university.

Hello again, 

I hope you are all well and having a good week. As I have just completed another piece of coursework I thought now would be a good time to get a blog piece up on time. As some of you will be heading to university for the first time come September I thought it would be a good idea to go through what to expect as leaving home for the first time is a pretty big step.  Making the transition from high school to university can be a daunting situation. There are a lot of expectations when you start university and of course, there are the student stereotypes of crazy freshers’ weeks, cheap beer and the occasional lecture but what can first year students really expect from their first year at university?

The first thing to note is that looking back at my first year, your student days as a “fresher” are the best as you will meet lots of new friends  who are all in the same situation as you and the opportunity to join lots of new clubs or take part in a new sport are best to do in year 1 as things will only get busier! Whilst the freedoms that come with leaving home for the first time will occupy many students’ minds, the reality of studying at undergraduate level is much different to being taught from the confines of a school classroom.

Workload- Workload in the first year of university is often a lot heavier than many students anticipate. It is a common misconception that there is very little work to do in year 1, especially considering the transition from high school or college to university. Many students (including myself) fall into the trap that because lecture slides are made available online that there is no need to go to every lecture.  Whilst this is true and something which I have used as justification often during coursework you will need to go beyond what is taught in the classroom and having extra notes will help. It is also really important to get a good work ethic started in year one which will  ensure that you meet all your deadlines. Whilst I am more than guilty about pulling an all-nighter this is not the way to go!

Money– Increased university fees are a constant worry for students. Rising prices and the idea of moving from an almost cost-free lifestyle to one where everything has a price is a scary one. It is paying for the students’ lifestyle from day to day that is the biggest concern most students myself included as here in the UK you get a maintenance loan every year which is split into three terms which is all I have to live on as I have chosen not to get a part time job.  Therefore, managing money  is really important but at the same time can be more difficult than one would expect but setting budgets and taking the forgotten extras into consideration will help you to have a better grasp on just how much money you will need.
I find it really useful to use the mobile banking apps and try to check my balance at the end of every week so that I know whether I am able to treat myself at the weekend whether it is new clothes, or a takeaway. 

Fresher’s week- It’s incredible – the best part of the year. You get to know your flatmates and meet new people, all in a great environment where everyone just wants to have a good time. You effectively become nocturnal and your sleeping pattern is completely destroyed, but it’s all fun and definitely worth immersing yourself into. You only get one Freshers’ Week, so make the most of it! 

The Freedom- The independence you get at university is unbelievable, so embrace the fact the world is your oyster. If you fancy a walk at 4am, you can do it. There’s no asking your parents, you just go. Of course, I wouldn’t advise a stroll in the middle of the night, but it’s what I always think about when considering the freedom you have. The independence on offer is an essential factor as to why the first year is so brilliant.

The Food- Now this one may surprise you. You might be thinking: ‘What will I do without my mum’s cooking?’ Well, the independence you have means that you have the licence to buy any food you want.For example, one of my flatmates loved pasta, so had it for every meal – breakfast, lunch and dinner. No joke. For me, it was all about chicken steaks, chips, and beans, but each to their own. In your first year, you will either learn to cook, eat microwave meals, or pass out (would avoid the last option).

That’s it for now I’m afraid as I look forward to writing another piece of coursework. I hope as always you have found this somewhat interesting. Leave me a comment if you are going to university in September and what you are looking forward to most.

Have a good weekend!

Love,

Emily xx

Prom

Hello again,

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend and here in England it is a bank holiday  which I am more than looking forward to even though it is really cold outside right now. I know there wasn’t a blog post on this week on the scheduled days but I have to admit I forgot needing to do 500 other things which I why  this post is going up today. As you can see from the title this post is going to be about Prom, more specifically I have been shopping around on ASOS and wanted to share my top dresses which aren’t going to break the  bank but still look amazing. For me we had 2 proms, one at the end of year 11 and again at the end of year 13 just before we all headed off to university, leave me comments if this was the same as you and where you went.

Little Mistress Midi Dress with Embroided Bodice and Tulle Skirt Asos £68. I really like this dress as it is perfect for summer and very in trend with the embroidery. There is also enough skin on show with the off the shoulder top half but then it falls low enough that not everything will be on display. I also love the colours on here and I think it will suit most people and the theme of your prom but at the same time totally wear again.

2. ASOS SALON Floral Embroidered Skater Mini Dress £75. This is the most expensive of the dresses that I have included in this post. I love the light blue colour which again is perfect for spring / summer and the embroidered flowers also make this dress look far more expensive. I would pair this with a pair of white/ silver shoes and I would wear this again. The only thing is the length which if you are tall may be an issue especially when dancing!

 

3. New Look Premium Embellished Mesh Bodycon Dress £59.99.  In case you dont want something which is pastel and very girly this is my next pick which is still very on trend with the mesh overlayer and the embellishment makes it femine but the darker colour makes it more sophisticated and perfect for evening events. You could add colour through shoes or a clutch which would stand out even more against the black.

4. ASOS Slinky Knot Back Kimono Dress £35. Again this dress is a darker colour and by far the most understated but I love the back of this one and I think that this would look stunning with nude or bright heels and a neckless. This dress is definitely one that you could wear again on a night out with the girls which I why this might be my favourite.

5. ASOS Side Cutout Maxi Dress £42. The colour of this dress is amazing and would look stunning with a tan. Again depending on the location of your prom you might want something longer and the cut outs show a little skin. I actually have had both, for my first prom at 16 I had a dark purple floor length dress that I actually still have but haven’t worn again sadly but it looked great in the photos with all my friends. Then for my second when I was 18 I had a much shorter black dress with cut outs which I have since worn for a wedding.

6. ASOS Bardot Jumpsuit with Tie Sleeve in Print. Prom may be traditionally all about the dress but there are also some really stunning jumpsuits on the market. I picked this one out not only because of the on trent off the shoulder finish but I really like the colours on here and think that this would look great teamed with a pair of red shoes ! while this may be alittle uncommon I think they can still look very flattering and would be a great alternative if you dont want to worry about your dress falling down!

7. Boohoo Corded Lace Panelled Skater Dress £35. This is another black dress but at the same time very different to the other one within this post. I love the length of this one with the mini dress underneath and then the longer lace overlay makes it very feminine and you are still showing off your body but at the same time not too much. The only thing I would worry about is the length of the underlayer as if you are tall like me it looks like it is very short.

 

8. Chi Chi London Premium Metallic Lace Midi Prom Dress with Bardot Neck £72.  This is my last pick and I think this dress is stunning especially the white lace over the darker blue body. This dress is my favourite and would also be great for a wedding as the back is just as pretty as the front.

 

That’s it, I hope you have enjoyed reading this and gained some inspiration for what to wear for your prom/wedding/ party. There won’t be a post on Monday but schedule permitting Thursday is a go.

Love,

Hello again,

Hello everyone and  good afternoon!

Welcome back to my blog, it’s nice to see you again. As you all know it has been a couple of weeks since I have posted anything on here, actually it was just before heading home for easter break. Now, I am back at university with my dissertation finished and handed in and while I have a huge amount of work still to do, I thought that as I sit here binge watching Grimm, painting my nails and eating popcorn now was the time to get back into my blog.

I don’t want to sound repetitive to other blog posts but having submitted the biggest piece of work I have done to date really emphasises the idea that the end of my university experience is right around the corner.  Although I am fully aware that I need to start looking and applying for graduate jobs I am also eager to go travelling ideally around America, or at least to New York. I feel that I want to experience as many places as I can now before I begin my career as although this may be more economically viable I think the things that you want to do in your twenties are different to those later in life.

So if any of you have ever been travelling on your own and have any advice I would be really interested to know if you have any recommendations for sites that you used or tips please leave them in the comment section below.

I know this isn’t the most interesting or helpful blog but I thought I should get something up- and so the next post is going to be talking about proms and balls- particularly dresses that I have found online that won’t break the budget but still look really good.

Until then,

 

Emily
