Date Night with Weddington Way//

I love date nights. Whether they be slobbing out on the sofa with a tub of ice cream and Netflix or getting dressed up and going out to a nice restaurant, spending time with my boyfriend is one of my favourite things to do. I was inspired by Weddington Way to take one of their lovely dresses and style it as if  I was going on a date night with Kyle.

As Summer is finally here (kind of, I do live in England) I thought it was a perfect opportunity to style up a little pastel dress which would love lovely on a sunny evening. I opted for the 'Claire' dress in a beaut mint colour which would also look amazing if I had a bit of a tan.

I chose some white public desire heels to add some edge to the dress and kept the jewellery classy and minimal with my Michael Kors Bracelet and Double Heart Tiffany necklace. I wanted the outfit to give off a romantic, but still on trend vibe.

Beauty wise I would reach for a nude mac lipstick and team this with Naked flushed palette on my face. Wanting long lashes I would then use the Two Faced Better Than Sex Mascara to complete my look.

Realistically my date nights are more of the Netflix kind, however planning ahead for a romantic meal out never goes a miss. You can find some lovely dresses from Weddington Way here.What is your idea of a perfect date night?

Photo Diary: London//

Being a Manchester girl I don't get to visit the busy city of London very often (thanks so very expensive train fares!). But myself and Emily headed down to meet up with our best friend, Emma, who we hadn't seen in five years. After an emotional reunion we had the best weekend shopping, eating and catching up after what felt like a lifetime. I had the best time and if I could I would relive the weekend over and over so I thought I would share a few snaps with you.

The Clinique '3 Step System' Review//

Some people are blessed with perfect skin, but sadly, I am not. I'm not saying my skin is the worst in the world, but it is far from perfect. Spots are the bane of my life. There is nothing like waking up to a small mountain on your face, bliss. (I am being sarcastic of course)

Seeing as I am 20 years old I thought I would have perfect, clear and smooth skin by now, but apparently it doesn't work like that. After reading lots of reviews on different skin care to get rid of blemishes I decided to try the Clinique 3 step 'Anti Blemish' System.

After nipping to my nearest Clinique counter the lovely lady assured me this system would work the best on my skin. I paid £25 for 3 products which would last 4 weeks. A little pricey but something I was willing to pay to try and get some results. The products looked easy enough to use, cleanse, tone and moisturise.

My first impressions were good. The cleanser left my skin feeling fresh and clean, the toner made me feel like my pores were tighter and the moisturiser seemed to, well moisturise. The only negative at this point is that the products do smell of alcohol slightly, which may lead to you think they're being too harsh on the skin, but overall they did not make my skin any dryer than it originally was.

I used the 3 step system day and night for 4 weeks, until my products ran out. I think it did improve my skin, but it didn't work any miracles. I feel as though even though I still got some spots, they went down quicker and were less red and angry on my face. I think using this product for a longer period of time may have a more drastic effect on the skin. What I should say is within the first week of using it, I broke out, lots. I did expect this though as the products dig deep into your skin and draw out any impurities underneath.

Although I feel like the system helped with my skin, I have now moved on to La Roche Posay 3 step system which is supposed to be much kinder on your skin. Stay tuned for a review on this in upcoming weeks!
