Weekend Getaway

Today is the last day of the Instagram May Style Challenge, which I have been co-hosting with 4 other bloggers – and it’s been amazing fun.  Have a look at my Instagram feed and check out some of the outfits and if you look at the hashtag, you will be able to see the posts from all the other fabulous bloggers too! (You will also be able to see some of them on the blog next week!)

Yesterday’s theme was “Weekend Getaway”, so I am going through my outfit here. The main feature of this look is my oversize bag from Mickael Kors (well it’s oversize to me!), as I can fit everything I need into this bag for a weekend away.

Read on for my tips on choosing a weekend getaway outfit.

Today’s theme for the Instagram May Style Challenge (which by now I think everyone knows about) is “Bring on the bling”, which gives me the excuse to show off my new jewellery from the “Stella & Dot” Summer Collection.

I love the turquoise colour of the items I selected today, with the black lace of the dress, as I think they add a pop of colour to the outfit. However, there are many more styles and colours available in the Summer Collection.

Read on to see a few more pictures of my jewellery, and also my picks from the Summer Collection.  So, let’s Bring on the Bling!!

Review of Natura Siberica Creams *

Review of Natura Siberica Creams *

If you remember, a few weeks ago, I wrote a review of  Eco Natural Products * , a company which is dedicated to providing natural and organic products with a wide range from soap to anti-aging products, hair care and make-up.

As I believe that it is important to be aware of what we are putting on our skin and to pay attention to the ingredients, I was delighted to take advantage of this opportunity, and one of the products I tested and loved was the Natura Siberica Sculpting face mask. So, when I was offered the opportunity to review the Natura Siberica day and night creams* I was delighted to accept.

Read on for my thoughts on both these creams:
