Nicole x Missguided

So what its only taken me a fair few months to actually get round to looking at Nicole x Missguided & I now want everything! Except those slouchy leather trousers... those are a bit strange...

The collection is made up of monochrome, cobalt blue and a whole lot of bodycon! I've picked my favourites & wanted to share them with you. I really thought the pieces would be more expensive than they are, I think that's why I didn't look at the collection for so long. However the items are between £15 and £40 which is actually really affordable. When i was browsing I also thought how simple & timeless they are; they will be wearable for years & will never be unfashionable.

It was hard for me to narrow down my favourites. I looked at everything and just thought 'wow'! I definitely cannot pick a favourite out of these outfits and I am so tempted to buy them all when I get paid next week... The first two outfits only link to the top so this is the link for the midi skirt & this is the link for the biker leggings. 

What are your favourite items from this collection?

Lots of love,

ELF Lip Balm SPF 15 in Rose

Prepare for the first of many ELF reviews to come because I ordered a shed load with a 50% discount & I love almost every single thing so I want to do reviews for you guys :)
First up we have one of their lip balms which also has a bit of colour to it. This is in the shade 'rose' and probably the only shade I would ever wear. Saying that, I would probably buy the Nude colour but when it comes to lip balms I like them to be as natural as possible. This shade just sort of adds that 'my lips but better' look.
In terms of packaging i think its really sturdy and easy to just pop in your handbag to use throughout the day. I've been using this now for the past few days and I can say it does make my lips feel really moisturised & soft. Also with it having SPF in it you don't have to worry about your lips getting a bit sunburnt which always happens to me. 
On first application it has a really strong minty smell which I absolutely love - some people might not like that which is understandable. It slightly tingles on the lips which I also love, and then the smell & the tingling goes after about 10 seconds. It doesn't really have a long staying time like most lip balms but the colour is still significantly noticeable after an hour or so which is good for a lip balm in my opinion.  

Overall, I really love this product & for just under £4 I may have to buy the Nude...

Have you tried any other ELF lip products before? What are your recommendations?

Lots of love,
