Red Sunflowers

Dress: Dress Link | Bag: Primark | Jacket: H&M| Sandals: New Look 

I wear this dress way too often. And by way too often, I mean WAY TOO OFTEN! Seriously, if someone gave me a pound (I thought a penny would really be stretching it) for every time I've worn this dress since I got it I'd definitely be a millionaire by now. Dresses are generally really easy to wear all you really to wear along with them are some shoes and the outfit is complete. Much lazier easier than wearing a pair of jeans and having to pick all the bits and bobs to go along with em. 

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend!

Not Sponsored I Just Love Simple!


Now I do not consider myself in any way, shape or form a beauty or skincare blogger and I am sure that there are tons of people in the blogosphere that can explain these things a million times better than I can, so this entry will be short.  But I just had to write an appreciation post to give these two products some love, as they have really improved my skin. 

I have eczema, and have had eczema since I was a baby, so more often than not my skin is incredibly dry, mix that with being a spot prone teenager and you've pretty much got skin from hell! Even with my crazy skin I have never been very interested in skincare, I would generally use whatever facial cleanser we had in the bathroom cupboard, not even noticing how dry and tight they would make my skin after using them. 

But recently the skin on my face had become an absolute nightmare, so I asked my mum to pick me up a cleanser for dry skin the next time she was out shopping and she came back with the Simple Moisturising Facial Wash and Simple Soothing Toner.  The first thing I noticed about using the Simple Facial Wash was that my skin didn't burn when I used it as it had with previous cleansers, which for me is quite hard to come by.  And the toner removed so much dirt from my face that I hadn't even realised was there before - gross, I know! I truly feel like my skin has improved, not only in dryness but I think it has helped with my spots too and that is with only one week of use! They are not expensive products and are usually on a deal in Superdrug I believe - so they won't leave too big a hole in your purse! If you struggle with dry or sensitive skin, I definitely recommend giving these two products a try!

Do you use any simple skincare products?

Lowkey Normcore

Cardigan and Jeans: H&M | Top: New Look 

I have furiously been pinning what I perceive to be normcore outfits recently because I am really liking the normcore trend at the moment. I am also in awe of anyone that can put those types of outfits together so effortlessly, one such human being is the amazing Yanin from I dress myselfSO COOL. Anyway this is my first normcore-ish (emphasis on the ish) attempt, I decided to play it safe with some black skinny jeans and paired them with a good ole striped top.

What do you think of the normcore trend?
