Hey my loves..wow June is over already, where has this year gone?! It does mean my June favourites blog is here :-) I really hope you enjoy reading <3
Michael Kors Handbag - I'm so in love with bag! It was a birthday present from my fiance :-) I absolutely love the colour and soft leather material. This bag has plenty of space and pockets which is very convenient to keep all my things organised. Although this is more on the pricy side, I tend to use the same bag almost every day for years so definitely think it's worth the $!
Dudu Osun black soap -
I use this soap morning and night. I saw so many good reviews of this product online I had to try it out... It has all natural ingredients including honey, lime juice, cocoa pod ash and more. I think this soap is amazing, it has lived up to all expectations for me!
My skin is looking beautiful and clear, my pores also appear smaller since using this soap :-) The only thing I would say is this soap is slightly drying so you will need to moisturize after using if you have dry skin.
I will be doing a full review of this soon!
Skater skirt - loving this skirt :D I picked this up from Boohoo.com for a very affordable price, I also brought the same skirt in black. I think they are perfect for summer or with tights for winter. I love how super comfy these skirts are, as well as being very flattering for my body shape!
Jouer matte moisture tint -
This was another birthday present, from my mother :-) which I'm loving! The colour I have is chamomile which matches my completion perfectly. This tinted moisturizer blends amazingly and is not heavy on the skin at all. It is like a BB cream but with better coverage I'd say, if you are looking to try a new foundation/BB cream I'd definitely recommend giving this Jouer tinted moisturizer a try!
Summer dress - This is my new fav summer dress! It is from H&M, I love the stretchy material which is very comfy and floral pattern. I feel the shape of the dress is very flattering for my figure. It is also an outfit I can wear to work as well as at home which is perfect!
Thank you so much for checking out my June favourites <3 As always i'd love to know your thoughts if you try/have tried any of these products!
Lots of love, Rach xoxoxox

Hello my loves!! It has been a couple of weeks since I started using the Clinique dramatically different moistuzing gel and i'm pleased to say it has made it into my ongoing skincare routine!
As I do have sensitive skin I really don't like to change up my skincare routine much.. however I noticed my skin seemed to be lacking moisture and dry patches were appearing, so I knew it was time for a change. I was previously using the clean and clear oil free moisturizer which worked really well to keep my skin breakout free, however in my opinion did not give my skin as much hydration as it needed. Although I have an oily T-zone, my cheeks can be very dry and flaky...which is very frustrating!
I have now been using the Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel morning and night. The main change I have noticed is that I no longer have dry patches on my cheeks, and my skin has a healthy glow :-) this product is also oil free and leaves the skin with a beautiful matt but healthy looking finish. I have not yet had any breakouts while using this product (fingers crossed), which was my main concern when swapping products.
Onto my next change...primers. It may seem slightly strange that I've changed primers, as some of you may know the Smashbox photo finish light primer was my fav! The actual reason I swapped products is because I was concerned that without the Salicylic acid in the clean & clean moisturizer I might start getting breakouts. Luckily Smashbox also do another very similar primer which contains Salicylic acid..PERFECT!! I use this primer in the morning after applying my moisturizer. In terms of the photo finish light and photo finish blemish control primer I really can't tell any difference. They both have the same texture, no scent & work amazingly well!
Overall I am very happy I changed up my moisturizer, I feel my skin is looking youthful and glowing again <3 If you have sensitive skin and need some extra hydration I would 100% recommend trying out the Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel. In my opinion it is really worth the money, as are the Smashbox primers! I do think this combination of products together works perfectly for my skin.
As always thank you for reading, and I really hope this was helpful for some of you. Lots of love,
Hey guys, how y'all doing? Hope you have been enjoying my blog posts, i've had quite a few ideas of upcoming blogs and videos to share with you all. I'd love to know what kinda stuff you'd like to see though, so deff let me know!
What do I have for you today...? Lets get to it :-) I wanted to share a few summer hairstyle ideas following on from my braided halo style I posted a few weeks ago. Really hope you enjoy, and i'd love to see your photos if you try out some of these looks <3
Flower Braid - I absolutely love this hair style, It's so beautiful right? My friend Judith kindly let me do a few styles on her as I haven't managed to master this one on my own head yet :( but I shall keep trying!
If you want to see how to get this look please check out my Youtube video

Side French Plait - This is a super simple hairstyle, but one I really like to add an interesting touch to natural hair. I originally started doing this style to get my bangs out the way without using clips, which works really well :-) It is also a perfect convenient look if you like to keep your hair off your face.
Not too sure what to call this one... side plait with fishbone braid? For this style I took a front section of the hair and did a fishbone style braid against the head. I then took the remainder of the hair and did a dutch braid from one side of the head to the other :-)
Really hope you enjoyed this blog and try out some of these hair styles!

Lots of love,
Happy Thursday my lovelys :) I wanted to share a really quick first impression of my new moisturizer!
I purchased the Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel, which arrived in the post today. Clinique have a few different moisturizers but I choose this one as it is for oily/combination skin. I have been super excited to try this as I have heard great things about the product.
I have just applied this after showering/cleansing, my first thought was the texture is very light and easy to apply. It does have a very mild scent, kinda of like suncream.. but this seems to hardly be noticeable once applied to the skin. A small amount goes a really long way so you only need a tiny bit of product, which is great as this moisturizer is slightly on the pricey side! After a couple of seconds the moisturizer feels like it has sunk into my skin really well and leaves a non sticky matt finish.
I have combination skin with a oily T-zone and currently have dry patches on my cheeks, I'm excited to see how I get on with this moisturizer and if it works for my skin type. I have high hopes so fingers crossed!
Overall I would say my first impression of this product is positive and I'm super excited to see how my skin looks in the morning. I will definitely keep you guys updated on my thoughts after using this product for a couple of weeks :-).
If you have used the Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel I'd love to know your thoughts/if you think it's worth the $!
Lots of love,
