The Tan Suede Clutch | KoKo Couture

 I don't know about you guys but now that March is here I'm starting to get sooo excited for spring!
 With all the beautiful spring/summer pieces starting to sneak their way in to the shops it's the perfect time to start buying for the season that is (hopefully) just around the corner!
The lovely team over at KoKo Couture were kind enough to contact me and with that sent me over the stunning Zoe Faux Suede Clutch to style up


 First of all, I was so surprised at the size of the bag, it can literally fit everything in, including my camera without even looking bulky. Second of all is the quality of the bag, it's a gorgeous soft faux suede and the silver hard wear and detailing is stunning!


Today I styled the bag as a clutch, however it does come with a silver chain which you can easily attach if you want to style it as an over the shoulder or cross-body bag 


I teamed it up with this blue striped shift from Next, a pair of Topshop Joni Jeans and my favourite Michael Kors Silver and Blue watch (which is actually now half price!)


 I've worn this bag a few times now and I'm really impressed with it! The collection is available online now at the KoKo Couture website and they are also being stocked in Topshop so, keep your eyes pealed as the whole collection is totally gorgeous!

What are your favourite spring/summer items?

Threads Beauty | False Eyelashes Review


I was recently sent some false eyelashes to review from the lovely people at Threads Beauty
I received 3 different styles in Be-Bop, Emiloo and Angel Eyes and each come with their own eyelash adhesive glue which dries clear



Since these 3 sets of lashes are so different you can create a range of different eye looks with them and there will be a pair for you whether you prefer to create a more natural look or a dramatic look
First of all I tried out the Be-Bop lashes


These are perfect for creating a really natural eye look by giving you a bit of extra length


Next up I tried the Emiloo lashes, which I think are my favourite!




They have quite a similar finish to the Be-Bop lashes but they are thicker near the band which creates a perfect fluttery, but still quite natural look


And finally are the Angel Eyes lashes, these are much thicker and are perfect for creating a more dramatic look. As they are thicker the band is also slightly thicker so having liquid eyeliner on for these ones is a must (unless you're an absolute pro or a wizard)





Overall I'm really impressed with these lashes, there are lots of different styles to choose from which means you can create whichever eye look you're after. The adhesive glue that comes with them is great too, personally it reminded me of the Duo Lash glue which is one of my favourites as it's so long lasting! The lash bands are quite long so you can cut them to fit should you wish. I applied the lashes wearing liquid eyeliner because I always wear eyeliner if I'm wearing falsies - I just haven't mastered putting them on without eyeliner yet, I swear it's impossible?!

Have you tried out the Threads Beauty eyelashes yet?

New Look Beauty Review


Last month I was walking through New Look when I noticed that our store had started to stock the revamped New Look beauty range so, of course, I got ridiculously excited. 
I decided to pick up the 4 Pack Oval Brush Set. After seeing similar brushes being raved about by a whole bunch of beauty bloggers and knowing that these brushes can be preeeetty expensive I was suprised to find out that this set of 4 cost only £19.99! Basically, it would have been rude not to try them. 
I also picked up two of the stick foundations in the shades Natural Beige and Chocolate. I had been wanting to try a stick foundation and with these costing just £4.99 I thought I'd give them a try. The Natural Beige shade is perfect for my skin tone and I picked up the Chocolate shade to try as a cream contour 


The Oval Brush Set contains a large foundation brush, a bronzer/blusher brush, a contour brush and a concealer brush. I love the style of them with the black handle and silver hardware, personally I think they look a lot more expensive than they are. My only fault would be that the handle is a little flimsy, but I tend to automatically hold the oval rather than the brush anyway as I find it a more comfortable and easy way to control the application of foundation.


I've been wearing the stick foundation for over a month now so that I could do a proper review and.. I absolutely love it! For me, it's the perfect everyday foundation, the product is really creamy and so application is nice and easy which is great (especially for those early mornings before work when you try to do your makeup with your eyes half shut!)


The Chocolate shade I was using to cream contour is also really impressive! It's the perfect shade for my skin tone and again blends really nicely into the foundation so you don't end up with any harsh lines. 
I've been applying the foundation and contour with the foundation brush and the contour brush from the set and it leaves a really even finish on the skin which you can see below


Overall I've been really impressed with the New Look beauty products that I have tried so far. The brushes are super soft and apply the foundation really well without eating up all the product. PLUS (big plus) none of the hairs in the brush fall out, which is what I was expecting given the price of the set! 
The foundation sticks were also amazing, they leave you with a medium coverage which you can build up and have an in between finish, not super glowy but not really matte either. It also has pretty good staying power and lasts for most of the day without going patchy
 The only thing I would suggest is using a powder to set and lock in the foundation (or a setting spray) as I did find it transferred on to my hand if I touched my face

I will definitely be picking up more products from the range soon as I have been pleasantly surprised with these ones! 
Have you tried any products from the latest New Look beauty range yet?
