iPhone 6s ESR case review

  
Hello everyone,

Today’s post is on the good and trust ESR iPhone case review.

If you didn’t know, I recently received the iPhone 6s rose gold for my birthday, which I am extremely grateful for! The first thing to tackle with my new iPhone was to find a protective, yet stylish, phone case. I sat down for a few hours, searching the Internet when I finally found the perfect case. It was from the brand ESR which I had never heard of until now. So I thought I would give it a try, ordering it to get it by Christmas Eve. The specific case and design is like the one below:

  
If you like this particular case the link is below. ๐Ÿ™‚

When the case arrived it was amazingly packaged! It came in their own branded box with information and guarantees, covered in bubble wrap and then covered in a secure cardboard box. I was astounded by the quality that the packaging came in which is better than just thrown into a plastic bag.

When I took it out of the packaging the case was not damaged or scratched.

The silicone of the case was flexible but strong which I think is great for protecting your phone. As a bonus they gave you a flap at the bottom of the case which you can insert into the charging dock to protect that which I particularly liked.

The overall product I was really happy with. I have had it on my phone for around 2 months and it has kept my phone protected and no signs of wear have occurred. 

I will definitely continue to carry on purchasing my cases from this brand. 

If you like my case design the link for it is below:

They do may other designs and cases for different models and I would definitely reccomend them!

Inspiration?!

  

Hello everyone, today’s post is going to be on inspiration. An unusual topic to cover however I think can be very beneficial. Because I don’t know about you but some mornings I wake up and think, i want to do more with my life. I want to get fit, get clearer skin, be more productive. And being honest that takes a lot of work to stick to it. However personally I’m going to try it out to the limit. Try and achieve my goals because you only get one life and I want to live it to the full and make it everything I want it to be. Of course everyday isn’t going to be sunshine and rainbows. We all get those days where we feel like an absolute pile of rubbish but we have got to keep pushing on and get through it.

So I’m sorry that was a bit of a ramble but I’m sure you can relate to some of those points in there and leave me a comment on your views on what “inspiration” means to you.

One more thing is I love inspirational and motivational quotes because for me I find them very effective so I have compiled a few for you guys to take a look at, if you would like, below. (Ps. Most of my faves are at the bottom ;). )

Beauty tips!

  
Hello everyone, today’s post is on a few beauty tips which I think are quite helpful to know also I would like to apologise for the lack of posts the last few days, I was just quite busy but hopefully I’m going to get back into the swing of it soon.

1) wear white eyeliner on your water line to open up your eyes and make your eyes appear less red.

2) take a shimmery gloss tot he centre of your lips, top and bottom, this will attract light to your lips and make them seem more ‘pouty’.

3) for acne-free skin, look for a cleanser with salycilic acid or benzoyl peroxide.

4) to make curls last, make sure your hair is completely dry before applying a curling iron.

5) pick a sulfate free shampoo as sulfates can be harsh and drying towards your hair.

6) To make volume last all day, avoid running your fingers through hair. โ€œOil from your hands can weigh down your roots leaving your hair flat at the end of the day

7) always use a moisturiser with spf in it- even in winter!

8) If you donโ€™t have nail polish remover, apply clear nail polish over your nail, and then wipe off. It will remove old polish.

9) To add volume to clean or unwashed hair, use a dry shampoo spray.

10) To reduce unwanted shine, use a moisturizer that mattifies your skin. That way you get the moisture your skin needs without looking greasy.

11) If you have chipped nail polish, add glitter on top to disguise the look of chipping.

12) If you often find yourself being too tired to wash your face at night, keep makeup removing wipes in your night stand to prevent a runny mess or morning break out.

13) Use a cream or milk cleanser to wash your face. Creams are less drying than gels.

14) keep a blowout days longer by sleeping on a silk or satin pillow case.

15) always use you ring finger to apply moisturiser or concealer to the eye area. It puts the least amount of pressure on the skin.

I hope you enjoyed this small list of facts and if you would like to know some more let me know in the comments.

5 quick and easy hairstyles

  
Hello everyone, today’s post is slightly different from my others however I hope it is still helpful and enjoyable as today I’m sharing 5 quick and easy hairstyles for any occasion.

1: half up-half down

The half up – half down hairstyle is one of my favourites as all you need to take to half inch to an inch pieces from the front of your face, pulling them round your head to the back and then tying it off with a hair tie. To change up the look you can follow the exact same steps except when you tie off fold the small ponytail within itself to change it up.

2: volumised pony

The volumised ponytail is really simple. Tie your hair into a normal ponytail then take layers from underneath and back comb them slightly, add a bit of hairspray and your done!

3: the Hun

The Hun is another half up – half down style apart from when you have got your small ponytail you wrap and twist it around itself to create a small bun.

4: the side braid

The side braid is one of the easiest of the styles. All you do is father all your hair to your desired side of your head then start to braid it. The fun thing about this is that you can switch up the braid from original to French braid to fishtail and more. If you are unsure on how to braid YouTube and Pinterest have really easy tutorials to follow.

5: the crown braid

All you need to do is take a half inch to an inch piece of hair from the bottom layer of your hair behind your earns start to braid it (a braid of your choice). Once you have done that you take the braid across the top of your head and Bobby pin it in place behind your ear.

I hope this was helpful to you and don’t forget you can change up these styles in any way you like.

Kate moss ~ matte lipstick collection

  
Hello everyone, today I’m going to be doing a review on the Kate Moss matte lipstick collection as I know many people are quite frightened or want to stay away from matte colours or many people in general would just like to know the quality or Kate’s matte collection.

So to start off her matte collection ranges from pale pinks to deep wine reds which I particularly like as if you are frightened of matte colours and are trying them out for the first time, you don’t generally want to start off with a dark colour. Personally I like to start off with light, neutral colours to test the quality and durability of the lipstick because the last thing you want is to end up with half the colour you put on ending up around your mouth.

However with this lipstick it doesn’t happen! Kate has made wonders with the lipstick and the colour is really rich and stays on your lips through the whole day without budging but be warned you may need to touch up after having a meal as the colour wears down slightly.

One negative point for this product is that it can feel quite dry. If you have a standard lipstick or gloss it tends to feel quite moisturising and smooth on the lips whereas with the matte formula to get that matte look it contains quite drying features. So I reccomend your moisturise before putting on the lipstick.

I hope you enjoyed this review of the product and let me know what you think as this is my first review and I would like to see if i should make more.

How to style your favourite jumper

  
Hello everyone, today I’m going to tell you how to style your favourite jumper or maybe a jumper that you feel like wearing.

Style 1) 

The first style has to do with a skirt. You can either wear the jumper untucked but personally I love it tucked into the jumper. Then to finish it off you can wear some tights or long socks of your choice.

Style 2) 

The next style is with a pair of jeans. You can wear any jeans of your choice I like to choose some skinny jeans and for a more stylish look tuck the front of the jumper in slightly then assesorize with jewellery, a bag and some boots or ballerina pumps.

Style 3)

Another style is with a pair of shorts. You can choose any type and pattern and what I like to do is tuck either the front of the jumper in or tuck it all in but another option is you don’t have to tuck it in at all. For shoes I would say some ballerina pumps, ankle boots or brogues would look really nice.

So there was a few ideas on how to style a jumper I hope it was helpful!

My favourite beauty products

  
Hello everyone, today I’m going to be telling you about my favourite beauty products and I would just like to say thank you so much for the amount of likes on my previous blog post! If you haven’t seen it already, go check it out its about how to style up a uniform. Thank you again!

1) match perfection 2 in 1 concealer and highlighter

  
I absolutely adore this concealer as it gives excellent coverage as well as that highlight that you need. As well as that this concealer doesn’t look cakey when applied or underneath foundation which is great as I like to keep my make-up looking quite natural and this does just that.

2) rimmel London wake me up, anti fatigue foundation

  
This is my absolute holy grail foundation because it doesn’t crease or become cakey and stays on for ages! This is the best foundation I have found in a few years and I think it’s going to take quite a lot for another to take its place. Plus it gives you a radiant glow as well as including spf 15. 

3) Kiki Milano long lasting stick eyeshadow

  
If you didn’t know Kiki Milano is one of my favourite beauty stores as they just have products that do everything they’re supposed to with vibrant colours and long  lasting wear. One of my favourite products of theirs is there long lasting stick eyeshadows as they are easy to apply and the finished look looks incredible.

These are a few or my current beauty favourites and as they change I will definitely do an updated post. I hope you enjoyed!
