Femme Luxe Finery - Classy Co-ords

Hi everyone! I loved my Femme Luxe camel co ord so much that I showed you guys last week that I went ahead and bought it in two more colours! I know.... I’m crazy lol. But when I find something that I love I always tend to do that!!!

So as you can see I picked it up in grey and khaki. These colours seem to go even better with my grey UGG sliders. Super comfy and perfect for running out to the shops or chilling at the weekend. With cute hair, makeup and some heels I feel like these could also be dressed up?! I would definitely risk it!! 

The grey one is linked here and the khaki is linked here.

Femme Luxe have loads of exciting Black Friday deals going on at the moment so definitely have a look!

Femme Luxe Finery - cute tees

Along with my loungewear, I've been loving comfy, stylish tees which I can chill at home in and then wear out for lunch, shopping, walks and errands too. The Femme Luxe ones feel really high quality - they're not super stretchy and nylony, they remind me of the 100% cotton Fruit of the Loom ones!

I actually tie dyed one of those recently, and I wish I'd have just gotten this Femme Luxe one sooner as the dye is really pretty! The link for this blue one is here. They actually sell loads of cute tie dye stuff. I'd also be really interested to try their tie dye lounge sets and joggers!

The top on the right is one of their slogan tees. The font is so pretty and it's this soft baby pink colour. The fearless femme top also comes in black and white. The link is here. I am ridiculously in love with both of these tops! I feel like as soon as they come out of the wash I put them on!! 

I seriously recommend having a look at their tops! For reference, I got an XL in both of these. I wanted them to be long enough to wear with leggings and it worked out perfect for me. I am a large chested size 14 so I wanted to make sure they fit nice without being too stretched and they are amazing!!

Femme Luxe Finery Co-ords

I am still loving the co-ords over at Femme Luxe Finery! This beautiful khaki set is on offer for £21.99 which is an absolute steal, the fabric is so soft and stretchy. I love wearing these out casually to do errands and just lounge around the house looking cute.

There are plenty of discount codes on the website so I'd recommend you take a look if you're into your stylish but comfy co-ords. They're actually doing 50% off site wide at the moment! I really want to try one of their bodysuits next time!!

Femme Luxe Finery Update: Camel Coat and Co-ords

I received the most amazing package from Femme Luxe Finery today, with loads of cute co-ords and a coat this time! 

Here are the first two co-ords! The first is a super sparkly black two-piece which is so pretty, I can't wait to wear this at Christmas time. The second is a lovely, soft velvet two piece which is perfect for lounging at home or nipping out to look cute and casual whilst doing errands.

Here is the camel coat on the left. I've wanted a new one for ages and the waterfall front to this one is really nice. It has really big pockets and the fabric is super soft. I also got the wine bardot co-ord on the right. This is a super nice little set. I absolutely love matching two piece sets and Femme Luxe have an endless supply of lovely ones!!

I look forward to trying more Femme Luxe clothes soon. I've linked the above items in the relevant places if you are interested. Definitely check out their website, there is something for everyone.

Review: Femme Luxe Finery

Hello everyone! 

I know it's been a while since my last review posts, things have been happening and I hope you don't mind the interior guest posts that have been popping up in the meantime. I have undergone some massive changes in my life over the past couple of years and blogging has taken a massive backseat - hence why I've taken advantage of some opportunities to use guest posts to keep my page somewhat active.

Anyway, to kick things off again - I've been kindly gifted a few bits from Femme Luxe Finery so I thought I'd log on to show you my faves. There's plenty of nice bits on there, I was particularly interested in the loungewear section as I am into wearing cute co-ords in the evenings and at weekends to stay cute whilst feeling casual.

I picked out three loungewear sets and a pretty t-shirt with such a cute little slogan on it! I'll talk you through what I got and show you a couple of pics of me wearing fave items.

This dusty pink loungewear co-ord is so cute and really flattering. This goes up to a size 12. I'm around a 14 normally, but this fitted me at a stretch! So, if you have larger legs and a smaller waist this should be great for you. It's super comfortable and really cute for wearing out and about to run errands. It's on offer for £18.99 at the moment which is really reasonable for a two piece.

I also picked up another two identical loungewear sets in grey and black which are similarly fab. They are priced slightly cheaper at £13.99 each at the moment. However, my other fave item is this super soft, stretchy t-shirt which says 'life's a peach' on it! This is a steal on offer at £5.99 and I ordered it in a M/L. It's really comfortable and looks lovely with a pair of high waisted jeans or just some leggings.

Thanks for reading my post and I hope you're all doing well! Have a lovely weekend and I'll speak to you all soon.

2017 Beauty Favourites

Benefit 'They're Real' Mascara
I was late to the party with this mascara but it really does create thick, long lashes without clumping or balling. I literally keep applying it over and over and my lashes just get thicker and longer without
looking gross. It stays on for hours and hours without flaking at all. I applied this on the morning go New Year's Eve and didn't remove it until 5am that morning and there was still no flaking! This mascara ticks all the boxes for me.
Benefit 'They're Real' Mascara - available from Debenhams, £20.50.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Maximum Coverage
I have used Estee Lauder's Double Wear for years but never tried the Maximum Coverage version. It's fabulous and covers all my spots, scars and redness with ease. It stays on for hours and doesn't feel cakey. However, please note that this is an incredibly full coverage foundation so it's definitely not for those who want something light.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Maximum Coverage Camouflage Makeup - available from Debenhams £32.50.

Kat Von D 'Tattoo Liner' Liquid Eyeliner in Trooper and NYX Professional Epic Ink
Fabulous liquid eyeliner pen which lasts for hours and is incredibly black. This is my number one choice for liquid eyeliner hands down. A similar choice is NYX Professional Epic Ink Eyeliner which is also incredibly black, easy to apply and long lasting.
Kat Von D 'Tattoo Liner' Liquid Eyeliner in Trooper - available from Debenhams, £16.00.
NYX Professional Epic Ink Eyeliner - available from Debenhams, £9.00.

Lancome 'Galateis Douceur' Gentle Softening Cleanser
Amazingly beautiful cleanser to use. I have recently stopped using the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser and I just use this one now on a large cotton round. It has the most beautiful scent and my skin feels incredibly soft and clean afterwards.
Lancome 'Galateis Douceur' Gentle Softening Cleanser - available from Debenhams, £23.50.

Ride or Die Makeup Tag

Jaclyn Hill created this cool makeup tag which basically involves choosing one makeup product that I couldn't live without for each category. Here's my top picks!

PRIMER: Benefit Porefessional. This wasn't even a hard decision. It's a little pricey at £26 but a little goes a long way and it's absolutely amazing for smoothing out the skin, blurring pores and evening skin tone. I love it and always end up going back to it.

FOUNDATION: MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Liquid Foundation. Amazing, long-lasting foundation which isn't at all cakey. Looks great with powder products on top and works with my dry skin which is rare for this kind of makeup. It's especially beautiful with my fave primer.

CONCEALER: Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. It's rare to find a £4 product which is better than high end products regardless of price. It covers spots and blemishes with ease and the colour is fair enough for my skin.

FACE POWDER: L'Oreal Paris Infallible Powder Compact. The powder is light enough for my skin and isn't chalky. It sets my foundation perfectly and gives my skin a matte finish without highlighting my dry patches.

BLUSH: Sleek Powder Blush in Rose Gold. Another high street product! I've been using this since I was a teenager, it's the most lovely shade, it's really pigmented and the formula is a winner. It's very similar to Orgasm by Nars, but I actually prefer the Sleek one!

BRONZER: Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer. Beautiful bronzer that works with my pale skin - it's not orange or muddy at all. I usually use bronzer just to add some colour to my cheeks but it has also been effective when I've used it to contour.

HIGHLIGHT: Jeffree Star Skin Frost in Ice Cold. Incredibly pigmented white shimmery highlight with lots of product for your money. This is an essential for me.

MASCARA: Maybelline Lash Sensational. An affordable mascara which volumises and lengthens my eyelashes with little effort. The brush also curls my lashes so it's a great all-rounder.

LIPSTICK: MAC Cosmetics Creamsheen Lipstick in Creme Cup. I change up my lipsticks pretty often but this one would probably be my fave. It's the perfect pinky nude lipstick - it's fairly sheer and subtle so it looks great when I wear heavy eye makeup.

LIQUID LIP: Colorpop Ultra Matte Lipstick in Midi. A nude lipstick that is light enough for my skin. The formula is amazing - I love all of my Colorpop lipsticks but this is probably my favourite colour.

LIPGLOSS: Buxom "Full on" Lip Polish in Celeste. Long-lasting, comfortable, non-sticky lipgloss. Plumps my lips slightly without being too painful.

LASHES: Ardell Demi Wispies. Beautiful, floaty, natural-looking lashes. They can also be reused loads without looking weird. I love wearing these, they're so easy to wear because the lash band is thin and invisible - there's nothing worse than a thick, inflexible lash band!

EYESHADOW PALETTE: Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette. Gorgeous set of creamy, pigmented peachy and nude eyeshadows. I have a few Too Faced palettes and they're all great - my second favourite would probably be the original Chocolate Bar palette. Definitely have a look at the other palettes on the Debenhams website here as it's where I do most of my makeup shopping.

SETTING SPRAY: MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Fix +. I've actually only tried four setting sprays but this is my favourite. It doesn't leave any white cast or patches on my face like some high street ones have done in the past. I enjoy using this to wet eyeshadows so they are more vibrant - it really is an all round great product.

PERFUME: Hugo Boss for Her. A beautifully sweet and long-lasting fragrance. It is so fruity and gorgeous - as soon as I first sampled it, I ended up buying it full price there and then because it's that lovely.
