Chi Chi Competition

I've seen this competition been launched and I had to enter. I'd never heard of Chi Chi before but I am SO glad I have now discovered them. They are currently holding a competition for all bloggers to win £200 to spend on their amazing clothes. All you need to do is create a Chi Chi wishlist and post it on your blog. Easy! All the information is here but you don't have long as it closes today!
After wanting to order the whole website I finally managed to narrow it down to create my wishlist. If I could have I would have used the whole website, a girl can never have to many clothes right? I'm a firm believer that every girl should own a bodycon as you can never go wrong in them. I used to think a bodycon was actually a leotard, so thank goodness I realised it was in fact a dress before I went out on a Saturday night dressed like I was auditioning for Fame. That would have been awkward. Here below are two of my favourite bodycon/bandage dresses for my wishlist.

I also believe you can't go wrong in maxi dresses. I've chose these gorgeous maxi dresses below as they are freakin awesome and look amazing! I've got a few weddings and events coming up this year and these would be absolutely perfect!

My final 2 are these lovely dresses. I like to dress up like every girl does and I feel that these dresses would make me feel all girlie and summery. I like to hit the town with my friends and could also wear these dresses to pull out some moves on the dance floor.

So thats my wishlist! :)

A Bit Of Fake Tan

It's no secret that I'm a fake tan hoarder. Once I buy one, whether I use it or not, I just can't bring myself to throw it away. I wanted to share a few of my favourites because if you're like me and fake tan every week, it's always handy to know which ones are good and which ones aren't. It's safe to say I've tried a lot of different fake tans. Some have left me looking like I've spent a week on the beach and some have left me looking like an Oompa Loompa. I only wish I'd discovered fake tan when I was 13, pretty sure it would have made some of my school photos look a little more glamorous and a little less traumatising. If only TOWIE & Geordie Shore were around in those days then I maybe would have realised sooner how necessary fake tan is.

I recently discovered a brand called Vita Liberata and I love it! They have so many different ranges its brilliant! They've got light, medium, dark, extra dark, gradual, instant etc etc. My favourite is the Phenomenal Mousse as it stays on for 2 - 3 weeks, you do have to keep on top of it though to make the colour last, make sure you moisturise and use a good scrub. Another great one is the Tinted Self Tan Mousse which lasts a good 5 days or so. I went for the medium colour and it gave me a great golden glow and didn't make me look orange. It also didn't make me smell like a bit of burnt toast. It can be quite pricey but it is definitely worth the cost. It's also Binky from MIC's favourite tan... and I can see why! Check out their range here and I guarantee you will love it just as much as me.

My favourite instant tan has to be L'oreal Sublime Bronze. It's a lovely natural colour that makes you look like you've just stepped off a beach. One of the great things about it, is that it lasts for a few days after first applying so you can keep that glow going for a few days. Make sure you apply the mousse to a tanning mitt first, otherwise it can look streaky and you'll end up with orange hands!

Sally Henson Airbrush Legs and the Garnier Ambre Solaire are great sprays for summer. The Sally Henson is a bit like make up for legs rather than fake tan but it gives that airbrush finish which makes legs look smooth and even. The Garnier spray is great for hands and feet as it doesn't go patchy around dry skin and stays on for a long time.

Those are a few of my favourite picks, what are yours?

Spring Trends

Apparently it's Spring. Usually I get excited around this time of year as it means lighter days, nicer weather and you're able to leave the house without scarf, gloves, hat & wellies. However, the recent snowman in my garden and the -2 degrees doesn't exactly scream 'Spring'. I've decided to put some Spring trends on anyway as whatever the weather, we always like an excuse to buy more clothes!

Neon blazers are coming back into fashion this season and with the weather still being a bit chilly it's perfect timing! You can team the blazers with any colours, you could go for an all coloured outfit or you can simply team it with something black to brighten up the look. This weekend my outfit is a black jumpsuit with a neon blazer. You can either team them with neon coloured shoes to make it brighter, or with just some black shoes for a sophisticated look. I'm a massive fan of rings and own about 100, so I'd add a few rings and jewellery to accessorise. As all these things are currently in fashion you can buy them from anywhere. Primark and New Look have a great selection of blazers and jewellery and they're brilliant for not breaking the bank balance!

Let's hope the snow stays away long enough for us to pull off the neon look!

We can also add some great bright nail varnish to the look. I use a range called China Glaze which are known for their brilliant bright colours. I tend to find the more coats you apply the better the colour shows up. The nail varnish dries so quick which makes it easy to add lots of coats without it going all clumpy. In the picture below I have a colour on called Shocking Neon Pink. You can buy this range from Amazon, Ebay and even from some beauty shops. They sell for all different prices on Ebay but usually start from about £6. What's great about China Glaze is they can also be used for gel nails, so will stay on for even longer!
