Stylish Dresses at Yoins

With the current heat wave in full blow, all I want to wear are light colours, flowy fabrics and short sleeves - or even no sleeves. At Yoins they have a great range of stylish dresses that you will want to wear this summer. A couple of my favourite Yoins items are pictured below:

Printed Dress Yoins Ginham Top & Short Set

The dress on the left will keep you cool with it's flared short length skirt, v neck shape and sleeveless strappy style. I really like how the dress is fitted on the top and airy at the bottom, and the tiny floral print is cute and feminine. The white background colour will keep you feeling fresh even when you head out in the sun.

At Yoins they also have a collection of sexy tops, and one of my favourite is pictured on the right side above. This top is actually quite similar to the style of the dress on the left, as it features straps and a v-neck, but it also has a tie ribbon on the front, a peplum shape and a super trendy gingham print. The top also comes with a pair of shorts, making it an ideal set for summer holiday time.

Summer Skincare Must Haves

Summer Skincare Must Haves

With the inevitable burning sensation of the UV rays hitting our skin during the summer months, we want (or at least I do, don't know about you) something that will protect our skin from premature ageing (lines, wrinkles, hyper pigmentation) because sun exposure is one of the main factors of skin ageing. 

So of course, products with SPF are a must, and it is crucial we wear them on our face (and any exposed skin) year round. Look for products with at least SPF 15, but do go higher if you burn easily. Note that products with SPF 50 or above aren't that much more effective, the key here is to apply generously and to reapply if you will be spending most of the day outside. Also try to avoid exposing yourself to UV rays between the hours of 11:00 and 15:00 as it is when they are the strongest. 

My current summer SPF products are the following:

Face: I've been using this Olay Complete Radiance Illuminator SPF 15 for normal to oily skin. I must say this is actually quite lightweight and doesn't leave any glittery particles on my face, which is what I was scared of when I read the word Illuminator in its name. It also leaves no white cast or sticky sensation, sinks in quite quick and has a light scent. The only thing I don't love is that it contains parabens, but other than that it is a really good product. 

Lips: I've been using the Blistex Classic Lip Protector, it has SPF 10 and it has a mixture of natural oils in the ingredients, as well as chamomile and aloe, which makes it not only moisturising but also soothing. It has a subtle and sweet vanilla scent and taste to it as well. I would like to try the Palmer's Dark Chocolate and Mint SPF 15 lip balm too, which would be ideal to freshen up your breath after a meal. 

Hands: they are the first to show signs of ageing (along with the eye area) as skin is constantly exposed to the sun and rarely cared for. I've been loving The Body Shop Wild Rose Hand Cream, it has SPF 15, it's super lightweight, hydrating, softening and smells of roses. What more could you want? Oh, yeah - it also prevents the appearance of dark spots thanks to rosehip oil in the formula.

What are your summer skincare must haves?

New In: May 2017

St Tropez Tan
Poundland LED Lights
Pierre Cardin Leather Passport Cover
Didn't buy a lot of stuff last month, as my birthday is coming soon I'm kind of waiting so I can go crazy (maybe) and treat myself in 2 months.

From Aldi I got a little succulent plant, some evening primrose oil capsules and Argan body oil. Also got a sample of the St Tropez Gradual Tan with a magazine.

From Poundland I got a set of LED micro lights. Last but not least, a leather Pierre Cardin passport holder from a charity shop and a Botanics Hibiscus Toner from Boots.
