Femme Luxe Pink Joggers

The lovely people at Femme Luxe kindly sent me a couple of items to style for the blog. This time I chose some pieces that I thought would make really nice casual outfits and are also great for working from home as they are very comfortable.

The first outfit features a pair of the Lizzie Joggers in pink, which I love the pastel colour of. They have some very handy pockets on both sides and a drawstring that is hidden on the inside of the waistband so you can adjust them to a smaller or bigger waist. Speaking of waists, the Lizzie joggers are also high waisted so they look great with a cropped top or jacket, or with any other top tucked into them. 

Because they are so roomy, these joggers are super comfortable and great for lounging, traveling long haul and even sleeping (which I haven't tried but might do soon, ha!), and not only that but they are fluffy on the inside so these joggers are also excellent at keeping my legs warm which is extremely convenient when I've had to go out the house for any reason as I don't have to pile on the layers to keep warm. 

In the first outfit I paired the Lizzie Joggers with a lightweight but warm H&M alpaca wool jumper with a mockneck in a light grey colour and a pair of Fila Disuruptor II trainers in white to match the light colour palette on the garments. For accessories I chose a pair of simple but elegant pair of pearl stud earrings and a pearl hair clip to match the earrings. On my lips is the Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Balm in Poppy for a touch of colour.

The second thing I chose from Femme Luxe is actually a two piece set: the Suzi Co-ord in Jade Green. This set has a ribbed textured fabric on both pieces, which includes a cropped short sleeve fitted top and high waisted bell bottom style trousers. 

What I really like about this set is definitely the beautiful green shade and also the trousers, which are very flattering with their high waist, and also because of the leg shape as they are great for wearing with heels or platforms, which become hidden under the length of the trousers and can really elongate the legs. 

As it consists of two pieces, the Suzi co-ord set can also be styled separately into different outfits: the crop top is a nice layering piece so if you don't feel too comfortable with showing your midriff you can always wear a contrasting cardigan on top. The trousers could be worn, as mentioned above, with heels or platforms to make you look super tall, and to adapt it for fall and winter a nice cosy jumper would look amazing with it - perfect for the holidays. Also because of the high waist, when worn with a top that covers the very top of the trousers, it would make them look like a jumpsuit, so it is a hard-working set too with the amount of looks that can be achieved!

For this outfit I kept it simple with just a pair of heart shaped dangle earrings and the same white Fila Disruptor II trainers in a contrasting white colour to keep the casual vibes consistent.

Right now on Femme Luxe they are having a Black Friday sale with up to 80% off everything plus an extra 20% off on top. With items from 99p and free delivery it's a great time to snap up a bargain to update your autumn/winter wardrobe.

Winter Essentials at Holapick

 *This is a sponsored post. 

Even though we are still staying at home for most of the time there's no reason to dress up even if it is just for yourself, plus making a bit of an effort on your appearance and looking cute will lift your spirits and in turn make you feel better and more positively about yourself and help you feel ready for the day. So with winter just a month away I want to share a couple of cute items from Holapick, featuring two of my favourite wardrobe pieces ever: coats and knitwear.

If you are looking for a new coat, Holapick has a ladies coat sale, where you can find really stylish and beautiful pieces like the ones pictured above. On the left we have the "Motorcycle deerskin cashmere lamb wool coat" in black, which has a really cool and casual vibe to it with all the buckle, belt and zip details in silver hardware contrasting against the black background. It features a diagonal zip closure and two zipped pockets on the front, as well as an adjustable belt on the bottom hem and it is fully lined in super warm sheepskin. On the right is the "Women Long Outerwear Warm Fashion Coat", which is a more dressed up option compared to the sheepskin jacket. This warm grey longline coat has 2 slit pockets to keep your hands warm, as well as a button closure and long lapels for a classic look. 

At Holapick they also have dozens of trendy cardigans to choose from, with two of my favourites the ones shown above. On the left is the "Fashion Solid Color Loose Coat Jacket" which is a longline cardigan so long it could be mistaken for a duster coat, however this cardigan is super soft and the beige colour will go with absolutely everything. It has no button closure or pockets to keep the silhouette clean and has very wide lapels for extra cosiness and warmth around the chest area. On the right is the "Elegant Stylish Loose Leopard Print Long Sleeve Coat Cardigan" which features a very cool leopard print in the classic black and yellow colours, is knee length and oversized with extra wide sleeves, perfect for adding a very rock n' roll touch to your winter outfit.

Affordable Sportswear at FeelinGirlDress

*This is a sponsored post.

With all recreation, gym and sports places still closed, the best next thing to keep in shape is to work out at home (or outside if you can bear the dropping temperatures). Today I want to tell you why you should Choose Feelingirldress if you are looking to buy some affordable sportswear. 

Pink Gradient Crop Top High Waist Yoga Legging Close-Fitting Pink Cropped Jacket Sports Bra Hi-Waist Leggings For Workout

From the wide selection of workout clothes at Feelingirldress (they have over 400 options for wholesale sweatsuits) I picked out a couple of really cute ones that stood out to me: on the left is the "Pink Gradient Crop Top High Waist Yoga Legging Close-Fitting", which is a two piece set that features a long sleeve top and high waisted leggings in a base grey colour with a pink gradient towards the hands and feet. The crop top has some ruching on the back to help keep it in place and both pieces are seamless for enhanced comfort. On the right we have the "Pink Cropped Jacket Sports Bra Hi-Waist Leggings For Workout", which is amazing value as it is a three piece set. I really like the pastel pink colour and how the peach/coral accents add interest. The high waisted leggings offer moderate compression, the sports bra has removable padding and the jacket has long sleeves with thumbholes and a zip closure, so you can adjust it to best suit your workout. 

Wholesale Black V Collar Adjustable Straps Babydoll Allover Slim Fit Playboy Sexy Apricot Wrap V Neck Sleeveless Sleepwear Backless Style

However, if you are not interested in working out then that's not a problem, as at FeelinGirlDress they also have sexy lingerie wholesale, like the ones pictured above. On the left is the "Wholesale Black V Collar Adjustable Straps Babydoll Allover Slim Fit", which features a mix of different delicate fabrics, including a floral lace on the bust area and a dotted mesh style fabric on the body. I quite like the fit and flare style and the classic black colour. This babydoll also has some tiny bow decorations on the straps and rhinestones over the lace area for added sparkle. On the right is the "Playboy Sexy Apricot Wrap V Neck Sleeveless Sleepwear Backless Style", which comes in a lovely peach hue. It has a V neck on the front and a low back, it's cinched at the waist to avoid it looking baggy and has some feminine ruffles on the hems of the shorts.

Cute Hoodies and Sweatshirts at Charmwish

 *This is a sponsored post.

Autumn is in full swing, and with it the cooler, darker days, which is the perfect excuse to get cosy with a cute hoodie or sweatshirt. So today I want to share a few of my favourite hoodies and sweatshirts from the Charmwish website.

Casual all-match solid color knitted top      Cat head print loose round neck long sleeve plus fleece sweatshirt

I know we are in the middle of our second lockdown, but if you do have a genuine reason to venture outside, you might want to look cute after wearing PJs pretty much every day (no? just me?) so I think this "Casual all-match solid color knitted top", pictured on the left, is a really nice option to wear to your daily walk, weekly shop or even to pick up a prescription. The neutral green colour goes with everything, the raised-dot texture adds interest and the high neck keeps you extra warm. The top on the right is the "Cat head print loose round neck long sleeve plus fleece sweatshirt", which looks so comfortable and perfect for lounging around the house when you don't need to go out. It is longline, long sleeve and lined with fleece for extra cosiness on those cold, rainy days. Find more women's sweatshirts on sale on the Charmwish website. 

Fashion hooded V-neck pullover print sweatshirt      Fashion - Printed lady's butterfly finger print casual lady's hoodie

If you are more of a hoody type of girl, you might like the "Fashion hooded V-neck pullover print sweatshirt" which I love the relaxed vibe of and looks perfect for going out for your daily exercise or to work out when gyms open again. The star print gives it a casual look and the hood has drawstrings to adjust it which is very practical in case you need it to stay in place if it starts raining. Find more of the most comfortable hoodies on Charmwish. On the right we have the "Fashion - Printed lady's butterfly finger print casual lady's hoodie", which has a beautiful rainbow print with the words "be kind" in sign language. I really like the message on it and the colours of the design, plus the colour of the sweatshirt will go with everything, and I can picture myself wearing it for going on a hike.

Cute Cardigans & Jackets at Prestarrs

*This is a sponsored post.

Winter is only a couple of weeks away so it's time to stock up on cosy items to keep you warm during the new season. At Prestarrs there is a varied range of cute cardigans and jackets for all occasions and I want to share a couple of my favourite ones. 

Mink Fleece Turnover Collar Solid Color Jacket Lambskin Square Collar Plain Jacket

Starting with jackets, the one on the left is the Mink Fleece Turnover Collar Solid Color Jacket in white, which has a lovely soft texture and beautiful pearly buttons, I feel like it would be the perfect cover up for the festive season. On the right we have the Lambskin Square Collar Plain Jacket, another piece of outerwear with a super cosy texture but this time it's more of the casual version of the former: it would look great with jeans and to go to school or shopping. This jacket features contrasting material and colours on the collar and patchwork pockets. I think that a great way to add some interest to a winter outfit is by adding different textures and sheepskin is a great option for the winter. On the Prestarrs website you can find a lot more cheap jackets

All-match Solid Color Mid-Length Cardigan V-neck Love Long-sleeved Knitted Cardigan

On the Prestarrs site there is a nice selection of cardigans, on the left we have the All-match Solid Color Mid-Length Cardigan, which I like because it looks a bit like a coat, minus the bulk so it allows you to move more freely, plus the silhouette makes it a viable option for a more formal environment like work or meeting with a client. It could also be layered under a coat and the grey colour is very versatile so it will go with pretty much everything in your closet. On the right we have the V-neck Love Long-sleeved Knitted Cardigan which is so playful and feminine with the heart and checked pattern and pink and white colours. This longline cardigan has a V-neck with contrasting button closure, no pockets and is a bit oversized. It also comes in red, which I also really liked and is a bit more festive. Find more women's cardigans on the Prestarrs website.

Lierac Hydragenist Rescue SOS Balm & Lip Balm

Lierac Hydragenist SOS & Lip Balm

A while ago I came across a Lierac Hydragenist gift set in TKMaxx and Dot kindy got it for me as a gift one Valentine's Day. The set included the Lierac Hydragenist Rescue Balm and the Lierac Hydragenist Lip Balm in Rose inside a pink zip-up wash bag.

The Lierac Hydragenist Extreme Nourishing Rescue Balm is a facial balm for undernourished skin that oxygenates, moisturises and replumps the skin. It has a very rich, thick and buttery texture that is full of nourishing ingredients including glycerin, shea butter, rose flower water, sweet almond protein, rosehip seed oil, and rose flower extract. While it is an amazing product for nourishing very dry skin I should have known better and stayed away from it (can't resist a gift set) as it was very rich for my already oily skin so it wasn't very comfortable to use because of the heavy texture, however I wouldn't mind trying a lighweight version of it. I couldn't find the exact product in the pot, however I think it has been made into a face mask that has almost the same ingredients - maybe I should have tried it as a face mask too.

The Lierac Hydragenist Lip Balm in Rose is a nourishing and repairing silky lip balm with a rosy gloss effect. It is infused with shea butter, soybean oil, cocoa butter, rose flower wax, and castor seed oil. The texture of this buttery lip balm is beautiful and melts onto the lips on contact, and within minutes changes into a sheer bright pink on the lips as it reacts to pH. It has tiny glittery particles that are almost unnoticeable once on and leaves a slightly glossy finish that's it's not sticky, greasy, heavy or waxy. I believe the beautiful metallic effect packaging was a limited edition but it's now available as a crayon. This lip balm is one of my favourites and would definitely repurchase it as a treat. 

Find the Lierac Hydragenist collection on Lookfantastic and Allbeauty.

Mysterious Plant

Peperomia Caperata

A couple of months ago I was gifted this plant, which I had no idea what it was called. Fast forward a few weeks and it started growing some interesting looking appendages. I got curious and took a picture to identify it using the google photos app, and it turns out this plant is called Peperomia Caperata, and those pointy growths are actually covered in miniature flowers. I've grown fonder of this plant now I know more about it, I just hope I can keep it alive ha.
