My Summer Handbag Wishlist

My addiction love of handbags has unfortunately had to take a backseat for the past four years since having a child, but it doesn’t stop me looking and wishing!

When the sun finally decides to make an appearance I want to be out on my local beach, walking along the promenade and strolling through the city’s shops with a gorgeous handbag on my arm.

So I’ve been having a little browse online and am impressed with the selection of tote bags House of Fraser have at the moment.

I am a Fiorelli ADDICT so bags from their current range are top of my wishlist. The last time I bought one of their bags was during my pregnancy as the last gift to myself before I became a broke single parent. I treasure that bag, as well as the other Fiorelli bags that these days hardly see the light of day.

fiorelli

My favourite Fiorelli’s are:

Mia Multicoloured Medium Tote Bag– I love the bold, diagonal lines on this bag and it is similar to a satchel shape with the optional shoulder strap which only adds to its favour for me. It is a good size, so I could fit a lot of my everyday bits in it as well as have room for more when I’m browsing the shops.

Emme Pink Medium Grab Tote Bag– Love the baby pink colour of this bag with the hints of gold on the handles. Pastel shades are my favourite for the summer months.

Trixie Multicoloured Large Tote Bag– I really like this bag purely because it is so different from the styles and patterns I’m used to seeing from Fiorelli. I have recently started to get into the more retro, vintage floral look with the tea dresses I have been buying so this would match them nicely!

kors

My favourite Michael Kors are:

Selma Pink Tote Bag– I also love this one for it’s pastel pink shade.

Portia Pink Small Shoulder Bag– This is a bold pink which I would love to team up with a white maxi dress to let the colour pop out.

Carine Red Shoulder Bag– This is not my usual style but that’s why I love it. The deep red and the pattern works well when you want a handy, but pretty mini shoulder bag when out on a summer’s evening.

And last but by no means least, a DKNY bag…

dkny

DKNY Saffiano Orange Tote Bag-I LOVE LOVE LOVE the bold orange colour and that it resembles the satchel shape which many of my bags are.

I can see myself using this for pretty much all summer outfits I own, for night and daytime use as it is just lush!

What’s your handbag wishlist for this summer?

MooGoo Skincare Review

I’ve suffered with eczema and psoriasis since I was three years old, over my face and body, and have tried many prescribed creams which many unfortunately are steroid based.

So when I received the MooGoo products to try, I was sceptical about it helping……..

2015-06-22 11.17.45I love how the products were sent, in a cute cow box with straw inside. it also contained a booklet with products and information on different types of skin disorders, which I found very helpful.

MooGoo Skincare are an Australian brand which was “first made when the founder adapted a cream used in dairy farms to help a family member with a skin problem. The dairy version of “udder cream” was designed to heal the cow’s udders and keep them in good condition for milking. It was full of skin repair ingredients and no gimmicks. Cows don’t care too much about the latest fad in skin care, or even “Organic blends of Horsetail and Bergamot…” They do need healthy skin on their most valuable assets. Although the original cream used in the dairy farms was legendary for its skin healing properties, it was thick and greasy. MooGoo modified the cream for human use by keeping all the skin healing properties but making it non-greasy.”

I was sent Irritable Skin Balm and Soothing MSM Cream to try and began using it straight away, as my eczema has been having bad flare ups on my face and neck and I want to stop the steroid creams!

moogoo

 I’ve been using the Irritable Skin Balm everyday as I feel it has really helped my skin, its soft and quickly absorbs into my skin and works well under make up!

Due to it only containing natural ingredients like sweet almond oil, aloe vera, vitamin e and olive, it smells so fresh and not chemically!! Irritable Skin Balm is free of Paraffin Oil (Liquid Paraffin) and all other petroleum based chemicals and preservatives. So no more thick, greasy heavy eczema creams on my face!

I love this lightweight natural alternative, which feeds my skin and has no skin damaging effects like steroid based creams do.  It is also suitable for babies and adults.

Soothing MSM Cream can be used in conjunction with the Irritable Skin Balm to give a really good boost of nourishment and calmness to the skin. This cream is also suitable as an all over moisturiser, which I use on my legs after shaving as it calms the irritation straight down and stops the itching!

moogoo2

The cream is full of skin healing ingredients. Including Allantoin (Comfrey Root Active), Vitamin E, Raw Coconut Oil and Honey. It contains 10% MSM (Organic Sulfur) which has skin calming properties.

This product doesn’t smell as nice, reminded me of playdough which I cant stand!, however once the cream was absorbed I could no longer smell it, which was good 🙂

My skin was left feeling silky, smooth and hydrated.

Since using these two creams, I no longer have itchy, red, tight patches on my face and neck and have stopped needing to use steroid creams to quickly help calm my skin. I am very shocked with  how well my skin has improved in such little time and I feel so much better in myself, without feeling i’m being stared at due to the eczema.

I will definitely be recommending this range to many people, and look forward to purchasing more from them as they have a much bigger range of products from baby, body, fake tan to make up!!  For more information on MooGoo and their products click on the link MooGoo Skincare

Sun Sense SPF50 Face and Lip Products

SunSense recently sent me three of their new reformulated products to try. I received Anti-ageing face spf50, Anti-ageing face matte spf50 and lip balm spf50.   

IMG-20150309-WA0001

SunSense is the UK’s number one prescribed sunscreen, as it has the highest sun protection factor, and protects against both UVA and UVB radiation. They are also the number one suncare formulated to Australian standards.

“Their extensive range has products for everyone, and has been specially formulated using high quality ingredients that quickly bond to skin. Each product is unique in its formulation, and some have recently been reformulated to meet stringent new laws on the labelling of sunscreens in Australia.”

Product What I liked about both the anti-ageing face and face matte, were as well as being light weight and spf50, they didn’t leave my skin oily or with a white sheen like a lot of high factor products have done!

The matte version was my favourite as I love a complete shine free matte finish on my face.

The lotions quickly absorbed into my skin leaving it soft and smooth, with no nasty smell due to them being fragrance free. Very simple to use too, simply shake well and apply a small amount over the face, neck and chest.

As well as providing anti-ageing benefits and high protection, they also contain AHAs, vitamins E and B3, helping to fight signs of lines and wrinkles.

The lip balm was a surprise, I thought it was going to leave my lips tacky and uncomfortable due to the high sun protection but I was wrong. The balm glided on nicely with the attached applicator and left my lips silky smooth  thanks to the added vitamin E.

Belissimo Lips

I recently received a cute little lip glitter set, as part of the Belissimo Lips Range, from BelissimoBoutique.

2014-11-30 13.11.03 The set came in a black drawstring bag, containing a pot of glitter in Cerise, a bottle of glue and 4 sealed cotton buds, with application guide on business card.

PhotoGrid_1418128863595

I was surprised how easy it was to apply the product, I expected glitter all over my face and floor! But with 2 simple steps you can’t go wrong!

1. On clean lips, apply a small amount of glue with a cotton bud, making sure you keep your lips apart until the end.

2. Apply glitter to lips using the cotton bud. I applied it in dabbing motions to build up colour.

once complete allow to dry for a few minutes, avoiding food, drink and kissing! during this time, and that’s it!!

The lip adhesive is water based and specially formulated for sensitive skin, it’s non-irritating and safe enough for children to also use.

PhotoGrid_1418128967470I don’t usually wear lipstick as I find it too heavy on my lips, so was a bit worried I was going to feel very uncomfortable wearing the glitter, but I was wrong it is lightweight and didn’t irritate me in any way! No tacky lips! I definitely recommended this for your xmas/ new years party!

Belissimo Lip glitter is designed to stay on for up to 12 hours and advises you to avoid hot drinks and oily food to prolong the sparkle.

You can find more colours to choose from on the website BelissimoBoutique and only costs £13!

YR Nails – Decals

I recently came across these anchor nail decals (transfers) while browsing through Amazon, only cost just over a pound… bargain!

 21gIly9lLsL__AA160_

They arrived within a couple of days which was impressive, and included a very clear, easy to follow instruction guide, 23 anchor decals and 2 free owl decals to practice with.PhotoGrid_1400696945920

I thought it was going to be tricky and awkward to apply the decals, as I have never used them before, but I was so wrong! it was surprisingly easy to carry out.

I firstly painted my nails in a khaki shade, and a holographic shade on my ring fingers, once they were dry I followed the decal instructions of cutting them to size  and soaking them in warm water for up to 30 seconds. Once the the decals slid off the backing paper, I blotted them dry and applied them to my ring finger nails, finishing them with a glossy top coat.

I was so happy with them I went straight onto the YRNAILS.com website and saw they do 1000’s of decals in funky/animal/flowers/patterns etc, nail wraps, nail tools and even polishes! They also do custom designs and the prices are amazing, starting from as little as 50p with free UK delivery!

I will be ordering a lot more products from YRNAILS 🙂 quality is amazing for sooooo little cost.

Moyra Nail Varnishes

IMAG3105 IMAG3112

Tall curvy mumma has been selected as an official blogger for Moyra UK, and we were kindly sent 3 nail varnishes, from their extensive range, to trial and review.

We received Holographic no.252, Suede Effect no.504 and No.14.

What I loved about these varnishes are the long, sleek brushes which made the colour glide on smoothly over the nail and so easy, compared to other varnishes which have short, stubby brushes  which don’t fan out on the nail bed making uneven colour!

After applying the first coat, I was stunned at how quick it was starting to dry, within a couple of minutes it was dry enough to apply my second coat! Once my nails were finished they were touch dry in under 5 minutes!! Very impressive!

The colours were gorgeous and as soon as the sun hit the holographical colour it was stunning!! Can’t wait to wear this one in the summer.

With the suede effect I applied a glossy top coat to give it a shine to match the other nails, but next time im going to try a matte top coat to really bring out the suede effect.

The stayin power of these nail varnishes are good too, I’m on day three and still no signs of chips etc. Very impressed Moyra UK xx

the nail varnishes were given to us for this review, but all opinions are honest and our own. No payment was received for this post.
