Outfit Of The Day- The Classic White Blouse



Shirt- Zara
Jeans- BDG via Urban Outfitters
Necklace- Forever 21

Today was the first day in a while that I had gotten out of pyjamas... I had been given a week off work and promptly got ill. I blame all the rain we've been having

I absolutely believe every girl should have a white shirt in their wardrobe. It's an essential and goes together fantastically with jeans for effort less chic. Throw on a blazer and you're good to go. I adore this shirt from Zara. I found out a while ago that it was actually 100% which would explain the hefty price tag so it just goes to show it's worth checking what fabric your paying for. Silk is a great light weight fabric but needs to be cared for so don't buy if you're all about low maintenance.

Hope you guys like

Outfit Of The Day feat. Dusty Rose Maxi Skirt



Top- H&M
Gilet- H&M
Belt- UO
Skirt- New Look
Shoes- Topshop

It wasn't raining here today in England so I dashed outside to take this OOTD while I had the chance. Shortly after, the drizzle reappeared. No surprises there....
No llovió hoy en Inglaterra así aproveché de la oportunidad para hacer un OOTD. Poco después, la llovizna reapareció. Sin sorpresa....

The maxi skirt and the gilet are two things I hadn't worn since my recent little shopping trip and I love them both. While it's still a bit nippy in the wind, adding an extra layer to your torso can really keep you a bit warmer. I'm also wearing my beloved peace belt that I've been wearing non stop.
La falda maxi y el gilet son dos cosas que no las había llevado desde mi pequeño viaje de compras y me encanta los dos. Aunque todavía hace frio cuando hay una brisa, la adición de una capa extra a tu torso puede mantener un poco más de calor. Tambien, llevo mi cinturón amado que llevo constantement.

Anyway just a quick OOTD
Hope you guys like!

Skincare ShakeUp- La Roche Posay Effaclar Review

La Roche Posay Effaclar
La Roche Posay Effaclar La Roche Posay Effaclar

 Since coming home from uni, my skin has not been happy. I think it's been the change in diet combined with hormonal outbreaks. I would definately say that my skin has changed recently. While I used to get blemishes and spot predominately on my forehead and temple areas, now it's all moved down south to around my mouth and jawline. Very peculiar and I'd be intrigued to know if that means anything.
Desde que volví de mi universidad, mi piel no ha sido feliz. Creo que ha sido el cambio del régimen combinado con brotes hormonales. Mientras que tenía los granos predominantemente en mi frente y mis sienes, ahora ha cambiado a mi boca y mi linea de mandíbula. Muy extraño y me encantaría saber si eso significa algo.

So needless to say, my skin routine wasn't doing me any favour and eventually, after eyeing it up for a while, I bought the La Roche Posay Effaclar designed for oily sensitive skin. The whole Effaclar range is designed for that skin type.
As you can see, it's a foaming gel but because it is soap and importantly, alcohol free it doesn't dry your skin out. It's really very gentle on the skin and leaves my skin feeling clean, soft and not tight. It's also good at removing make up but watch out for your eyes with this one.
Huelga decir que mi rutina de cuidado de piel no me hizo un favor y eventualment, despues de un rato de hacer ojitos, compré La Roche Posay Effaclar desiñado para la piel sensible y grasa. Toda la gama de productos es desiñada para este tipo de piel.
Como se puede ver, es un gel de espuma pero, porque no contiene jabón ni alcool, no se seque la piel. Es muy suave en la piel and deja mi piel con una sensación limpia y suave. Tambien, es muy bueno para quitar el maquillaje pero evita los ojos! 

I was having trouble with a row of underground lurker spots- you know the ones I mean- that had appeared on my cheekbone because of *that* time of the month. Nothing was helping get rid of them. And then boom, 2 days after using this, they had massively reduced in size and redness. I couldn't believe! And now a week later, they've completely vanished and it's also beginning to help with the dark fade marks I get.
Tuve problemas con una hilera de granos que aparecieron en mi pómulo debido a *este* tiempo del mes. Nada me ayudó. Pues, despues de dos días de usar este producto, habían reducido en tamaño y en rojez. No lo creia! Y ahora, despues de una semana, han  desaparecido completamente y tambien ha comenzado de ayudar con las marcas oscuras que tengo despues de un grano.

I really think this might be my Holy Grail skin care item. It's shot straight to my favourite spot, easily over taking Liz Earle. It's £10 for 200ml's which might seem expensive but you get absolutely loads and you only need a pea sized amount to get a good foam on.
I highly reccommend this to anyone struggling to manage oily skin and I plan on using this one for a good while.
Estoy segura que eso es mi producto de' santo grial' del cuidado de la piel. Es imediatamente mi favorito, adelantando con facilidad Liz Earle. Es £10 por 200ml que quizas parece caro pero tienes mucho y sólo se necesita una cantidad del tamaño de un guisante para tener una buena espuma. Lo recomiendo a todos que luchan contra la piel grasa y pienso que vaya a usar eso para mucho tiempo


Hope this was useful
Have a great day
