Loving this coat, found it on the Primark sale for just £7 yay! A couple of days ago I saw it in black and beige as well so if you look hard enough you might still find it in the sale section.

On other news, I'm going to Mexico this weekend to visit my family ♥ haven't seen them since they came to my wedding ;(

I still haven't packed yet, but when I'm done I might do a What's in my travel make up bag post, and expect lots of summery OOTD posts from sunny Mexico ♥

Nail of the Day: Ciate Paint Pot in Pocket Money

ciate pocket money

I love nude nail polishes, so when Marie Claire was offering a free Ciate Paint Pot with May's magazine, I chose the caramel shade over the gold one.
"The ultimate in understated luxury, this creamy fudge nude is a sweet treat for fingers and the perfect girly indulgence. Break open your piggy bank and splash out on some me time."
Pocket Money is a really pretty brownish pink colour which is really nice for spring or if you love nude nail colours like myself.
You only need 2 coats for it to cover properly and it is very long lasting, hardly any chips and quite shiny (on the picture above I did not use a top coat).

If you didn't manage to grab it while it was a freebie on Marie Claire's magazine, you can still purchase it here.

Do you like nude nail polishes?

If you follow me on instagram you might have already know that I got my hair cut! 
It feels super short compared to how long it was but it was time to cut it because my ends were going a bit funny (though I cut way more than just the ends) but I like it :)

E45 Body Lotions Review

E45 Body Lotions Review
Left: Moisturising Lotion, Right: Nourish & Restore

The cold winter days seem to be finally over, but they might have left your skin tight and dry, and that's when a good moisturising lotion comes in handy.

Recently I got sent a couple of E45 Lotions to try and review. There are 4 varieties to choose from: Touchably Smooth, Nourish & Restore, Moisturising Lotion and Intense Recovery.

I received Nourish & Restore, which is a lightly fragranced everyday lotion to help prevent dry skin and retain moisture; and the Moisturising Lotion, which is a fragrance free everyday lotion that soothes, softens and relieves dry and sensitive skin. 

The Nourish & Restore lotion is slightly thick, which made me think it would be greasy and that it would take long to absorb, but that wasn't the case. The lotion feels light, sinks into the skin very quickly and leaves a nice powdery scent that lingers for a few hours, which I really like. This product is hypoallergenic, so the fact that it is scented shouldn't represent a problem if you have sensitive skin.

The Moisturising Lotion is quite runny, so I thought it would be lighter than the Nourish & Restore lotion. Unfortunately it feels quite greasy when you apply it and it is just not completely absorbed. Even after a few hours after applying my skin still feels oily, which I assume is due to the use of lanolin in this product.
This is a good choice for sensitive skin as well since it is perfume free, but I am not a fan of the smell of this lotion, which I can't really describe as I am not sure what it is, though it might be the lanolin.

Overall, I prefer the Nourish & Restore lotion to the Moisturising Lotion, but you might like the latter if you have very dry skin as it feels more rich and forms a barrier that can keep the moisture in your skin. If you need a lighter moisturiser then I would recommend Nourish & Restore as it gets rid of dry skin, it's not oily and smells nice.

E45 Nourish & Restore* and E45 Moisturising Lotion* available in Boots and Superdrug.
