Touch Organic Tea Review

Touch Organic Tea Review

Hello!

So I have most likely done posts on green tea in the past, simply because I am a little bit obsessed with it, so on my recent visit to TKMaxx I was ecstatic to find more of the Touch Organic range.

I’ve had the green tea in bags and their loose leaf green tea before and loved them so when I found this cute little gift set, there was no question, I had to buy it!

So basically within the set you got a mini pot of their Classic Green Tea- Chun Mei, a mini pot of their Sencha Green Tea and a gorgeous diffuser mug all in a cute little tea crate.

I love Green tea and although some people only drink it for health benefits, I genuinely like the taste! Its really the only hot drink I drink so I drink a lot of it!

I would highly recommend you look out for Touch Organic teas in TKMaxx next time you’re in or you can also buy them on amazon! There are numerous health benefits for green tea, but I also think it just tastes really nice! My favourite though has to be lemon green tea! Yum!

Love, Lucy xxx

Winter Lip Care Routine (Dior Addict Lipstick)

Winter Lip Care Routine (Dior Addict Lipstick)

Hello!

So who else gets annoying dry and sore lips in winter? Yes? Well me bloody too! Its just brilliant isn’t it? For me its pretty much a daily battle because as soon as they get a little dry and cracked I am sure to bite them and make them even more sore!

So I have complied what I do to keep my lips in tip top condition, not only for the sake of my lips but also so they look good under any of my array of beautiful lipsticks!

So first of all I would exfoliate my lips! Recently I’ve been using the Benefit Dr. Feelgood Buffing Lip Beads. These are brilliant for getting rid of flaky, dry skin with out it being harsh to the sensitive skin of the lips.IMG_1679

 

I will then obviously rehydrate my lips and at the moment I’ve been loving   Badger’s Lip & Body Balm  in Highland Mint. This is brilliant for slicking on my lips to keep my smooth and subtle. Its great if you really massage it in as it sinks in nicely and as its a body balm as well you can go onto the skin around your lips too.

Then of course it’s time to whack on your favourite lipstick, for me its the simple yet beautiful Dior Addict Lipstick in 260.

And there you go! Perfectly kissable lips! I really love this Dior lipstick as its smooth, shimmery but oh so subtle and pretty!

Dream Winter Boot Collection! (Pixie Footwear)

Dream Winter Boot Collection! (Pixie Footwear)

Hello!

Here we are in winter and although the weather has been pretty mild around these parts lately, it still means we girls want to change up our shoe collection from pretty little sandals and pumps to more cosy, sturdy boots and shoes.

So today I have compiled a ‘wish list’ from a beautiful, high quality woman’s boot company Pixie Footwear. They are super cute, super quality and super affordable! Here’s what they have to say about them on their website…

‘Pixie was launched in 2011 by Steve Trigg, a well established footwear designer and manufacturer for over 30 years. Steve is based in UK and our whole collection is designed inhouse. We then manufacture to the highest standard in China.

At Pixie we pride ourselves on making excellent quality boots that will feel like you’re wearing slippers. Our designs are all fully faux fur lined, right down to the toes, giving a warm and super comfy feel.

Our aim is to offer cutting edge designs, together with uber comfort, for the very best look and feel. Team your Pixie’s with skinny jeans, leggings or tights and you’ll never look back.’

So lets get on with my wish list from this great company!

  1. Heidi Camel 

This is for ladies that prefer a flat winter boot without giving up the stylish look we all want! The Heidi Camel is the perfect cross between comfort and warmth, I mean just look at them, I want my feet in them right now! I also love the tassel detail at the back and I love the colour, although if you don’t they also do these in a grey! Perfect! As well as all this they are an affordable £69.95

Heres what they have to say about them on their website…

‘An Evolution Of Pixie’s Rosie Boot, Heidi Offers A Modern Approach To A Classic Mid-Height Style. With Thick Over-Sized Laces Up The Back Of The Leg, Two Tassels And Lashings Of Warm Cosy Fur, This Boot Is A Statement In Style And Warmth.’

2. Emily Berry

So you want an ultra modern, sweetly simplistic, comfy as winter boot but want the sexiness of a wedge? NO PROBLEM! These Emily boots are utterly gorgeous! I LOVE the colour, (but also comes in grey, mink and navy), I can just imagine wearing these with a dress and tights, or skinny jeans and a jumper, almost anything and again they are so comfy, its like you’re not wearing a heel. These ones are £64.95.

‘Emily’s Minimalist Design And Fresh Range Of Colours Includes Navy, Mink, Berry And Grey. This Fully Faux -Fur Lined Boot Combines The Warmth And Comfort Associated With Pixie’s Range Of Flat Boots, With The Glamour Of A Wedge.’

3.  Tammy Camel

These are quite possibly my favourites! I love the wedge, I love the lace up detail and think these would just look AMAZING with a casual day dress and tights, so cute! These for me are the perfect match of comfort and style, they are not too girly but still give you a classy feminine edge. All for £69.95.

So there you have it, my wish list from the brilliant people at Pixie Footwear! I highly recommend you go and check them out and with FREE DELIVERY, you’d be mad not to have a look!

Let me know what you think of these boots and which ones you’d pick!

Winter Look Book: Skinny Jeans and Fluffy Coats…

Winter Look Book: Skinny Jeans and Fluffy Coats…

Hi there!

Hope everyone is good! So I thought today I would share my first winter look book with you all!

I love simple pieces that I can wear again and again and with anything, with a few statement items to jazz it up. I also went a little crazy today and bought myself a new coat from Topshop which I am IN LOVE WITH! I was very lucky with it as it was on the last chance to buy rail and, after a quick check online, I found it is sold out in every size except 14! I will leave the link below for if they come back in stock!

Meanwhile here are the photo’s! Sorry they aren’t the best quality, it was dark by the time I got home to photograph them! 😦  (It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…!)

Assignments, Winter Balls & Christmas is coming!

Assignments, Winter Balls & Christmas is coming!

Hello!

We are officially in one of the best months of the year, December! We all know why that is, CHRISTMAS! Can I get a whoop whoop!

I now have only one week to go until I break up from uni for christmas after having submitted my last assignment till January last week, and although I CAN’T F-ING WAIT, I will also miss my friends whilst I’m not there. Its been a long, but also life changing twelve weeks!

In the last week I also got back my marks from my first piece of coursework. I wasn’t particularly happy with them initially I’m not going to lie, but that was certainly the perfectionist coming out in me. I think I was most upset about feeling I’d let myself down, reading it back I could tell why I’d got a lower mark than I wanted. However with some perspective I can now say I didn’t do badly at all! It was my first piece of uni work and I’d had a hard couple of months settling and should be proud of myself for even just being there!

I also have room to improve which is always good and I could let it knock me down but I will pick myself up and eagerly await my next marks! :/

Apart from that, a good week! I went to my Winter Ball at SWX in Bristol which was great! I’m not a massive nightclub person, but I throughly enjoyed letting my hair down with some brilliant people! I also went along to UWE’s Christmas fair and got my face painted which was cool!

Here are some pictures from the last week:
