So I thought I would share my favourite beauty picks for Spring/Summer so far! First up is the Garnier Body Soothing Gel-Cream which is a gel type body moisturiser, now I must say this isn't my favourite body moisturiser but it's really cooling, light and fresh which is perfect for warmer weather. I also love the subtle peach scent that it has. It drys quickly because of its gel texture which is a plus for those that hate waiting around for body creams to sink in. Next up is the L'oreal Lumi Magique Primer. I bought this a few weeks ago now and I really love the glowing look it gives to my make up, it makes me look a lot more radiant. This is perfect for Spring and Summer because it will help with the longevity of your make up in warm weather but also give you that Summer glow. Now for nails, I have chosen two of my favourite Spring Summer nail polishes from Barry M. Peach Melba is a gorgeous peachy pink colour which would compliment a tan beautifully and Lychee is just my perfect nude colour. Next in line are three lipsticks, these corally, peach shades will warm up your complexion and look so Summery. Whimsical by Topshop is one of my favourite lipsticks and I have mentioned it a fair few times before. Clementine from Laura Mercier was given to me by my Grand Mother and I really love the glossy, moisturising feel it has. Rimmel by Kate Moss in shade 16 is a lovely warm peachy pink. On to another base product which is the Revlon Photoready BB Cream, I was so unsure about any sort of tinted moisturiser or BB cream to start with but I really wanted something with SPF that I could just slap on for holiday. I really like this one, it evens out my skin tone (with a little help from my friend concealer to hide any blemishes/scarring). It's really light, moisturising and gives a lovely dewy finish which is perfect for Spring and Summer. It also has SPF 30 which is nice and high to protect my lily white skin! Now last but not least is Glow by Topshop in the shade Polished (other shade only available online), which is a cream highlighter. It's perfect for using with BB cream or any other creamy dewy base products because it blends in so well with the creamy texture. It's far better than putting a powder highlight onto a really creamy dewy base in my opinion because I don't feel that powder works well over dewy, creamy textures.
So that was my Spring Summer beauty picks! I hope there will be more to come during Summer time. What are your top Spring Summer beauty products?

This post is just a little rave/rant about how much I love Topshop make up and in particular the lipsticks. I have three colours but I defiantly want them all!
First off I love the packaging, really different and stylish. And they would have to be for Topshop as they are so big on trends and style. I also love the colour range that they do, they are all really pretty colours and you are bound to find one (or several) for your skin tone. I very much love my pinks and nudes at the moment and these colours from Topshop are perfect. The formular is creamy and moisturising but with good colour pay off.
Whimsical is a lovely peachy pink colour which is a great very day colour. Saint is a light pinky nude and I would say this one is more sheer that the other two which are very opaque. Tease is a bluey/violet toned pink which is very vibrant and gives a lovely statement lip.
The only downside to these are that the packaging gets dirty very easily as you can probably tell from the first photo (I bought Saint the other day).
Also I have just discovered they have a new sort of lip product called Lip Bullet, I will definitely be purchasing one (a few) of those.

I bought this a little while ago now and I had wanted to get a Sleek palette for some time because they looked such good quality for the price. I've used the MUA palettes quite a lot and I still really love them, this palette is very similar in quality but slightly better I would say. The eyeshadows have good pigmentation especially the sparkly, shimmery ones. I really love the colour range as well, from one extreme to the other, white to black. The top six shades are nice light neutrals and the bottom six are beautiful rich, darker shades. I'm not particularly keen on Honeycomb, Toast or Taupe simply because they have weird orangey/yellow tones to them and just don't look good on my fair complexion. But I do really love Moss, Mineral Earth and Regal. I tend to lean towards deeper shades for some reason.
All in all I love this palette and it's great for creating a range of different looks. The packaging looks and feels high quality, as do the eyeshadows themselves. The price is very good for what you get but if you just want something super cheap I would recommend MUA's palettes. I also want to try more of Sleek's make up as this is my only purchase from them so far. I definitely like the look of their blushes and contour kit!

This weeks outfit pick is simple and chic. Nice clean whites with light acid wash jeans. Paired with a bright lip and a glowing (fake) tan, this would look gorgeous for when the sun finally comes out!

I love the neon trend for spring and I really want to get some bright pieces in time for summer. So I thought I'd pick out a few things that stood out and that I think will look gorgeous for spring/summer. I have this skirt but in different colours, I love them for summer and I definitely want this day glow one. I also have the lipstick, it's such a good colour for statement lips. It's also been said that it is a dupe for MAC's Candy Yum Yum.
