Summer is here and it's time to shine

Summer is here and it’s time to shine

This week has been hot and it has got me in the mood to update my summer wardrobe. For me I love handbags, but unfortunately over the last five years my life has been taken over by babies and the need for changing bags. I am currently using three changing bags that I change between , but now I’m back at work and able to leave the children as my nursing duties are over it’s all about me again and my love of handbags. I love a handbag I can either sling over my shoulder easily or I can cross over my body and I decided for summer I wanted to find the perfect tote to compliment a summer dress and some sandals. I resent paying full price and find the whole shopping process far more rewarding if I can get myself a bargain.

I recently stumbled upon a website dedicated to sale shopping and I am hooked. Love the sales aggregate sales from the top 700 retailers and display them all on one website. It focuses predominantly on fashion, but also covers beauty,home, garden, electronics, sports etc. I decided to get searching and entered my budget and style to refine my search and quickly found a bag that I love that was also £29 off.  I went for the Kurt Geiger Cravela Krypton shopping bag and I can say I’m really impressed. Shopping in sales online can be a tad overwhelming and I found love the sales a far more relaxing experience and obviously a wider selection. It’s my new go to website for online shopping.

One thing that has really been getting me down recently is my skin. I stopped using my BareMinerals powder after I run out and instead used my going out Estee Lauder Double wear. The results have left me with horrible skin. I have suffered with acne since a teen and haven’t found anything that completely clears it. I decided to ask some other bloggers if they had any experience and I was quickly directed to the brand La Roche-Posay that do skincare for many different skin complaints. I decided to head to my local Boots and have a browse and quickly drawn to the Effalar ‘3-step’- anti-blemish system and to my delight it was also reduced from £32.50 to £24.37. I decided to snap it up and give it a try. The set includes a gel cleanser, a toner to reduce the size of pores and a repair and hydrate. So far after a few days it does seem to have stopped my skin from being so oily and it’s dramatically changed the size of my pores. Spot wise I still have them but they do seem to be drying out and I haven’t had any new ones. I’m impressed so far and hope it continues to work. I have also made sure to get the new BareMinerals Bare-pro foundation and so far I am really impressed with it. I have been using BareMinerals for a good four years now and honestly love the stuff. It’s light weight, you can build coverage and it lasts all day.

I love my Pandora bracelet, but I don’t often wear it in the day so I decided to go for one of the brown weather straps to make it more casual for day use and I love it. I love brown leather and I think it looks great for summer and it’s a great way of showing off my many various charms which I can interchange daily for different looks. unfortunately this was not in the sale at £45, but I love that I will now get so much more use out of my charms which usually only come out for a special occasion.

What have been your favorite summer buys this season?

    1. I really love BareMinerals. It does seem to make a difference and I like that it isn’t heavy. I would recommend to get someone on their counter to apply it for you and take not how they do it.
