Outfit of the day: pastel princess
Cardigan: Cery’s Closet.
This is fast becoming a staple outfit in my wardrobe. The mini petticoat gives the modern tule skirt a vintage twist. The shoes are ballerina flats with a lace detail and the cardigan just tops off the outfit with its rose detail, tying in with the pink skirt. Full fringes are great for vintage looks.
If you want you could team with a pearl necklace and earrings to take it from casual to evening.
I’m truly in 💖 with my new weekly/skin routine!! These @garnieruk sheet masks. I then finished off with @poundland witch hazel cleanser along with #porestrips and my @nivea_uk lip balm.
The mask is so easy to apply especially for disabled people as they do not need assistance in applying it or taking it off… With no mess!
Hazel is so good all you need a few drops on a cotton pad, work into your face… tadah!!
The pore strips are cool because there’s no messy application and, of course I cannot live with my soft rose Nivea lip balm.
I then put Johnson and Johnson moisturer when my skin flares up (I have severe dermitits)
Marc Jacobs lotions on my hands and finally E45 on my arms, legs and feet.

What you’ll need
A warm flannel soaked with face wash (I love using Chien by Lidl.)
Marc Jacobs body lotion
A paper face mask if you want (I use the Korean herbal ones on Amazon)
Have a steaming hot shower using a good body scrub to freshen you up. Steam is very good at opening up your pores.
Make sure you take care of any eyebrow and ‘garden maintenance’ if this a special night. ☺️
Shave legs from ankle to knee – pay no attention to the adverts with smooth thighs (it’s all airbrush)
Shave arms and applying a cream like deodorant such as Mitchum
Scrub your feet with a pumas stone – clip toe nails and finger nails.
Now on to your face
Firstly always use a fresh flannel (even when you wash it after using it, it can still harbour germs.) Apply some warm water and throughly lather the face wash. When washing focus on your T Zones.
Next apply a thick layer of hydrocortisone cream around your cheeks and sides of your face in a circular motion. Apply to any other dry areas such as the forehead or bridge of your nose. Let it soak in for 20 minutes.
Cover your body in E45 cream, giving extra attention to sensitive areas if just been shaved. Focus on hands, elbows and heels – non scented is kinder to skin. Wipe off any excess hydrocortisone cream and swipe a little moisture under under the eyes and under your nose and Cupid’s bow to act as a natural highlighter.
Apply lip balm (I love a tinted one)
Then slather yourself in Marc Jacobs body lotion – apply face mask in the evening for 20 minutes and go to bed feeling spa like pampered.
TIP: A good makeup primer is essential; I recommend MUA hydro gel and a good and Ganier Water

Check out my vintage inspiration in my last fashion post
“Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world” – Marilyn Monroe.
“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different” – Coco Chanel.
“Elegance is the only beauty that never fades” – Audrey Hepburn.
So this you can see the difference right? This is my no #makeup look. It covers all my dry skin and rosacea and bags under my eyes – this was done By using a @katemossagency lipstick in light peach. Two swipes under the eyes and any other spots then use it to define your eyebrow shape.
Then by using a peach eyeshadow I gave myself a hint of blush.
Products used @barrymcosmetics Matt foundation in ivory. @plouise_makeup_academy hint of gold for my eye lids then a light brown on my eyebrows (coral pallet #makeupacademy powder in ivory. Mascara is from @rimmellondonuk and I use a @nivea_uk lip balm before applying ’Pink in the Afternoon’ lipstick’ by @rimmellondonuk. Face wash @lidluk and @tesco sensitive skin moisturizing wipes, but Dress and shrug from @cerys_closet
Cannot wait to get my hair dons tomorrow, hopefully I can fit in an eyebrow wax and French manicure
