A/W 14 Style Hack - The Classic Moschino Belt 'Must Have' Essential Accessory

Hey there!

I hope you've all had a lovely Saturday! 

I was particularly excited when I woke up today to find a parcel on the kitchen table, I'd ordered something online weeks ago and had completely forgotten about it! I tore into it immediately to find the 'must have' fashion item that I had been dreaming about for months - literally. 

I've always been aware of the amount of celebrities and fashion icons who own a Moschino Belt. You can't flip through a copy of a magazine without seeing one cinching in someone's waist, I had to have one! So after months of searching on end for one at a reasonable price I am finally the proud owner of this iconic belt. 

Now usually I'm not one for large branding, but I love the simplicity of it's design. The striking gold letters mounted onto the thick black leather make it strikingly unforgettable. I love how versatile it is too, easy to dress up or down. Pair it with frayed denim shorts for a more relaxed look, or wrap it around a high waisted black bodycon skirt for a touch of added sophistication and style.

Belts are an easy way to create curves where there are none on a more slender frame, or can really define your waist creating the illusion of it being smaller than it is when you're curvier. A big celebrity fan of the Moschino Belt is Kim Kardashian, and I think I speak for must of us when I say I am jealous of her feminine curves.

I can't wait to add this to my outfits, I feel like everyone should own one of these. Especially as it's so on trend for A/W14, it's a style essential! And if I can find someone else able to use my SLR without getting overwhelmed by all the buttons I will post some of the outfits I manage to create with it.

Thank you for reading!

Back to Blogging: Lush Bath Cosmetics

Hey all! I'm back, did you miss me? 

I've decided to re submerge myself into the blogging universe. I realised the other day that whilst a time consuming commitment, blogging provided me with a creative outlet that I otherwise would not get the chance to express whilst at work.
 I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things by writing new posts at least twice a week, so hopefully you guys will enjoy them!

October is one of my favourite months of the year. I love the cold nights, fluffy jumpers and lazy film days tucked up in bed that come in tow with autumn, but also the arrival of my birthday. 

This year I was lucky enough to recieve not one, but two beautiful gift boxes of goodies from my generous boyfriend and sister, of my favourite handmade bath cosmetic brand - Lush. Anyone who knows me will know how I rave about the beautiful colours and smells of all their products which hypnotise me into their stores. As an added bonus Lush are environmentally aware meaning their products are natural and friendly to the planet. They can do no wrong in my eyes.

For photography purposes I have combined both gift sets
(Hello Gorgeous and Cosmic, both available online and in store)

The gift sets both contained a mixture of products, ranging from Lush's infamous bath bombs to their lotions and scrubs. I'm currently making my way through the products so I am unable to pass comment on all of them, but as always, from what I've tried so far I haven't been disappointed.

My absolute favourite product of the two sets is 'The Comforter' bubble bar. This berry scented bar has such a gorgeous scent that leaves your bath water silky soft and bright pink! The bar is large enough to be split in half for two uses and is crumbled under the tap whilst running the water to achieve the luxurious velvety bubbles.

The other product which has really impressed me is the shower scrub 'Rub Rub Rub.' As a dedicated user of Soap & Glory's body scrubs I had never thought to venture into Lush's body scrub range, but I was pleasantly surprised with this product. The consistency is really gritty without being too abrasive and doesn't disintegrate when it comes into contact with water, which makes it perfect for use in the shower. This paired with the blossom scent and sky blue colouring makes a refreshing change from the candy pink exfoliators that Soap & Glory create. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone in the market for trying a new scrub. 

So if you love Lush as much as me, what's your favourite product? 

I hope you enjoyed this post as it'll be the first of many more hopefully.

Thank you for reading!
