Step into Spring- Spring Lookbook

Today I have a spring lookbook for you. Since the weather is beginning to change for us, I have a few outfit ideas for you. These are a mixture of outfits for both casual and formal occasions. 

So the first outfit I've picked out is featured above. I paired this cropped, green, sweatshirt style jumper with some white jeans, to keep it looking bright and fresh for spring. I wore a long necklace with a large green and turquoise jewel on the end, which is fairly simple but dresses up the top a little. I also accessorised with some lime and blue bracelets and my pearl earrings. For shoes, I opted for cream boots with a zip on the inside, that appear loosely laced up, and I kept my hair down

Spring is great for wearing slightly more summery clothes, but not going all out with strappy vest tops and shorts yet. I choose this stripy, purple toned sleeveless jumper with a roll neck. I wore dark blue, denim skinny jeans and the same boots that I wore in the previous look, which I think go really well to tone in with the brown faux leather jacket I wore. I chose to wear long earrings, but kept my accessories to a minimum, only adding some rings. I pulled my hair up into a ponytail to complete this look.

The third look is very minimalist, pairing a black cropped bralet-style top with minor detailing with black leggings, and my black, buckled boots. I chose to add a splash of colour by wearing my denim shirt undone to keep the look very casual, but still a little vibrant for spring. Again, I kept my accessories to a minimum with some gold hoop earrings, and put my hair into a messy top-knot. 

The final look is definitely the most formal, and would be perfect for a party, although it's also wearable during the day too. I wore this black and white striped dress, with a slight skater dress style, and kept warm by wearing sheer black tights and my grey wool coat. I used light, but pretty accessories, opting for my pearl earrings (not visible in these pictures), two silver rings, and a silver diamante bangle. I wore black, lacy ballet pumps on my feet and kept my hair down with just a little gripped back.

I hope you liked this post and maybe got some outfit inspiration from it. Comment down below your favourite look, and follow my blog if you'd like to see my future posts!

Love Me Beauty

Last Sunday, I bought my first ever beauty box from Love Me Beauty, and I love the idea so much that I thought I would share it with you. 

Similarly to many box-subscription services, you can subscribe to beauty box companies in many different packages, and they will send you, generally monthly, a box filled with makeup, hair, skincare and other products. However, what makes Love Me Beauty a little bit different, is that you are able to pick out from a range of products, up to a certain number of 'credits' (explained later), so you know that you'll love what you receive. This particularly appealed to me, as it's the excitement of new products, whilst knowing you'll love them all.

When you sign up to Love Me Beauty, they ask you to fill out a quick user profile made up of features such as your age range, hair and skin type. This enables them to pick out 'recommendations' of products, that you can choose for your box- however, you can also pick out from the regularly changing boutique, if you'd like something different to the products they suggest.

Products cost 10 or 20 credits, and if like me you get the one month deal (which is a great way to see if you enjoy the service, and then you can pick out a more long term deal), you can pick out items that cost up to 60 credits. You are also able to pay a small price for extra credits, and there are several options for these, each increasing with price depending on how many extra credits you buy, so you can pick out the one that best suits you. This means, if there are loads of products you want to try, you are able to.

I picked out 4 products:

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil
MONU Hydrating Face Mask
Eye of Horus Bronze Amulet Goddess Pencil
Lanolips 101 Ointment

I have left a link to their website below, I recommend you check it out as it's such a great concept, which I absolutely love!

These products are all brilliant, and considering the amazing price on 13.95 including P&P, I think it's incredible that you are able to receive a box from this company worth £40 or more! This is the perfect way to try out new products, and since Love Me Beauty only teams up with brands that produce the highest quality products, it's well worth the money! Let me know in the comments if you've ever tried out a Love Me Beauty Box, or if this post has interested you- and also if you'd like a review of any of the products I received!
