Norvell Tannin spray - £35.99
Ahh to be tanned, wouldn’t it be lovely? Now I’m the kind of person that will shoot off on a holiday and return the same colour, despite all my effort to sunbathe as much as I can. (When I say as much I can I mean, for as long as my patience will last) I’m just not the kind of person that can lay in the sun for hours on end and find it relaxing, I become a hot sweaty mess and quite frankly I get pretty bored.

That’s why I decided its time to turn to the fake tan, now I’m not insecure in my paleness but its always nice to jazz it up a little in the sunnier weeks and always interesting to experiment with some new make up colours and tones. I was kindly gifted the Norvell tanning spray from Alex Silver PR and its safe to say that I have found a new staple piece to add to my beauty collection.



So, first thoughts on the crucial eye-catching packaging, it definitely screams luxury as its gorgeous purple and black bottle is an aesthetically pleasing piece to look at. It’s the perfect size, enough product to enable a good few applications but small enough to just chuck in your bag for travel.
In terms of the application itself, similar to most fake tan it can be slightly tricky to apply to hard to reach places such as my back as I’m an individual with particularly short arms so as you can imagine I definitely need a little helping hand. Once left for 8 hours it leaves the most beautiful natural tan, and I am utterly in love.

Design.ME/Puff.ME light - £17
The Puff.Me hair mist from Design.ME. Okay spoiler alert this is revolutionary. I’d gotten o used to having flat hair due to my hate of hairspray, but then this came along and has literally changed the game for me. The puff.me hair mist is designed to be pumped onto our roots to deliver a hella amount of volume. And It works!

When I was first gifted this by Sparkle PR I was questioning how a little powder would work to give me a volume boost, but as soon as I tried it I was in love. Now I don’t know what the competitor of this is whether it be hairspray or any other product, but it has the magical power of creating volume without leaving your hair feeling sticky and stiff which is the element that just sold it to me.


















The Alya Skin ink Clay Mask - £27.99
Now if you have Snapchat you will see that everyone has been raving about the Alya facemask. There have been marketing campaigns being pushed out all over the internet and many people reviewing it. And I was one of the lucky ones that was kindly gifted it. Now I usually don’t get excited over face masks and quite frankly get impatient and bored whilst waiting for them to dry most of the time. But this has definitely changed my mind about them.

This pink clay mask has quite a thick consistency and so you only need a small amount for each application, it smells gorgeous and has a gorgeous little pale pink aesthetic to it.



It’s safe to say that these products have found a special place in my heart, and I’m excited to explore more products from their range.

Simplicity. Sometimes in life, the smaller things make the biggest statements. Such as a handwritten note or simply a smile. These smaller day to day things are the ones that we tend to remember and value the most. So why should your jewellery be any different?

The smaller and more delicate the piece, the bigger the impact. Say hello to the newest edition in my jewellery collection. This gorgeous 18ct Rose Gold disk initial necklace. This piece just speaks for itself. With an elegant, simplistic and minimalist style this necklace can be found at Jewel editions for just £39. With an adjustable chain changing from 16-18 inches this is the perfect necklace for anyone and is something that I have been searching for for a long time.

Customisation is another unique feature, there's just something about simply popping your intitial on a necklace that can change it from simply being another piece to being your piece. The quality is just beautiful, with an outstanding finish and this is already a new favourite of mine.



Which jewellery type are you.. Delicate and dainty, or the bigger the better?

Until next time, Rebeca Elen.

I am back again, with another fashion post, and once again featuring Simply Be UK. I previously did a campaign with Simply Be and fell in love with their clothes and their beliefs. Having a curvy figure or in general being bigger than a size 12 can often make it hard to find perfectly fitting clothing. But with Simply Be UK aiming to create inclusive clothing for many sizes it’s become easier to find things that I love. And today I am talking dresses. Day dresses that are simple to dress up and dress down throughout the summer months.

Over the past three years my body has gone through a hell of a lot of change, from weight loss to weight gain. It's been a journey, not only physically but mentally. When your body changes, so does the way you see yourself. And when that change is drastic it's as if you have to figure out a whole new way to dress yourself. It's taken a little longer than I'd hoped but, I'm getting there. Everyday I'm discovering new reasons to love my curvy figure, from the way my hips fill out a tight fitting dress to the way that I can catch any food that falls in between my thighs (If you know, you know). But its fair to say that fashion has been a challenge.
