OOTD - Black and White with a Pop of Neon Pink

Last weekend my fiancé and I got invited out for dinner at a lovely Thai restaurant along the cliff top, it was a beautiful night and so humid until late, we are lucky enough to live very close to the beach.
I was adamant I wanted to wear a skirt as it was so warm, so this is the outfit I went for in the end.
What's your favourite look to wear for dinner out?
1. Necklace - Mikey
2. Top - H&M
3. Skirt - River Island

Hi Guys,

So here's my updated take on the Jelly Sandwich.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Delight Perfume Review and Photos

Marc Jacobs Daisy is one of my favourite day perfume's and I love the beautiful packaged Summer Limited Edition scents they bring out, as they are so feminine and wearable without being over powering.
Here are my thoughts on the Daisy Eau So Fresh Delight Perfume.
What's your favourite Summer Perfume?
 I have the 75ml bottle which retails for £52 from what I've seen this is the only size they do in this Limited Edition version, but for 75ml it's a reasonably priced perfume for how big the bottle is.
 The packaging is stunning as ever with it's beautifully elegant bottle and pretty daisy top it complements any dressing table! I didn't even want to throw the box it came in away as yet again it was covered in an array of coloured Daisy's.
I personally prefer the bright Daisy packaging to the original Eau So Fresh perfume because it's bright and happy, but I think this is personal preference.
 This is a spray applicator with top.
Scent and Longevity
This is a lot fresher to the original Eau So Fresh Perfume I would say comparing them both together the original is a little deeper and suited for evening too, whereas this one is defiantly a day perfume.
I'm not usually keen on fruity scents which this is, but this just has a gorgeous fresh smell mixed in with the fruitiness to create a beautiful Summer scent.
It's described as having notes of raspberry, apricot and blood orange which give it the sweet scent mixed with tiare tahiti which in turn takes the edge of the sweet smell.
All in all this works perfectly, the only down point is it's longevity, you defiantly have to re apply this a couple of times to keep the scent lingering longer, but I tend to find this with a lot of sweet perfumes.
Overall Thoughts
For me this is a beautifully packaged non over powering perfume perfect for those Spring and Summer days or as a lovely gift for someone. This is not to everyone's price range but for how big the bottle is and plus the pretty packaging it's a small price to pay.
As I said before the only negative for me is the scent longevity, but hey it's pretty accessory to pop in your bag to top up your perfume throughout the day!
I award the Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Delight 4 out of 5

Revlon Parfumerie Nail Polish in Wintermint a Deborah Lippmann Mermaid's Dream Dupe

Nail Polish Dupe

Recently the UK finally saw the launch of the Revlon Parfumerie Nail Polish that I had been excited to try ever since I saw a glimpse of the cute perfume like packaging! The colour that caught my eye the most was Wintermint as it looked like an exact dupe for Deborah Lippmann  Mermaid's Dream. Here I show you both colours side by side and a swatch of the Revlon Wintermint, which by the way smells amazing when you paint it on, just like mint, which is great to disguise the nasty fume smell nail polishes give off when you paint them (my fiancé hates the smell as I always paint my nails right before bed!! lol)
This lasted nearly a week on my nails too and I am excited to try some of the colours and textures from the line.
Have you tried any of these, what's your favourite?

Soap and Glory Sleep Accelerator Review and Photo's

I've tried a few things from the Soap and Glory Skincare Range and I really love their quirky packaging and unique products, so I was excited to try the Soap and Glory Sleep Accelerator.

On the website it mentions the Sleep Accelerator helps to detox, give a glow, stay hydrated and has extracts of Peach, Almond Oil and Cactus Flower.
Here's my thoughts on this product.

What's your favourite Soap and Glory Product?
This retails for £13 for 45 ml which is great for a premium drugstore brand and is what I expect to pay for a good quality moisturiser.

This is beautifully presented in Soap and Glory's signature pink and kitsch packaging, the pot inside is simply white with the title of the product on the side.  
This has a thick luxurious consistency, I used a tiny amount as a little goes a long way.
This blends beautifully into the skin and doesn't feel sticky it just sinks in instantly and the next day it left my skin hydrated and glowing and it also smells of peaches which makes your face smell like it too!  
 Overall Thoughts
I  love this moisturiser as it's affordable, generous in size and does exactly what it says on the packaging, it just leaves my skin feeling hydrated and glowing, sinking instantly into my face.
I would love to try it if I am flying too as this would be the ultimate test of hydration!

I award the Soap and Glory Sleep Accelerator 4.9 out of 5.
