THE WINTER EDIT | FEMME LUXE FINERY TRY ON HAUL


My favourite tweet of the year so far has got to be “when we put the clocks back, didn’t realise we put them back to the Ice Age - baltic!”. I agree with this on a spiritual level. I’m flipping freezing. Between 8 cups of tea and evening, a blanket and a hot water bottle, I still seem to be struggling to be warm. I’ve also always struggled to get past the hoodie-leggings-boots winter-wear combo and dress ‘nicely’ in the colder weather. I’m on a quest to have more fashionable colder weather options and look more feminine and chic; less bulky vagrant. So here’s my latest Femme Luxe Finery haul, but this time it’s a winter edit.

PIXI BEAUTY SKINTREATS HAUL + FIRST IMPRESSIONS


It’s been many many many moons since I last ventured away from my holy-grail, much-loved, ride-or-die Liz Earle skincare, but I may just have found the range that can banish it to the back of the bathroom cupboard. I used to spend hundreds of pounds [yikes!] on skincare; I tried loads of different brands in all sorts of combinations until I settled on the Liz Earle collection because I love the botanicals, the vegan formula and the way it made my skin look and feel. But MOVE OVER hun, for I have just discovered the miracle that is Pixi Beauty Skintreats!

I only wandered in to Boots for a little something to cheer me up - maybe a body scrub or a bath bomb is really all I had in mind. My local Boots shop is nothing more than a corridor made up of two rows of shelves and a pharmacy, so I never expect to be dazzled by what I can find in there. I was just browsing the skincare section when noticed - right on the bottom shelf - a small selection of Pixi Beauty products with a proud ‘New In’ sticker on display.

A LITTLE PRIMARK HAUL


Ello ello ello! Nothing too exciting here; just a few bits that I picked up from Primark this week. I literally can’t walk past a Primark without nipping in, and this little haul is quite restrained for me. I’ve been known to spunk a hundred quid in 20 minutes - it’s a problem.

ANOTHER FEMME LUXE FINERY TRY ON HAUL*


This blog is starting to look suspiciously like a Femme Luxe Finery fan-account and I’m sorry if you’re finding this to be an overload of these try-on hail posts at the moment! The truth is, I’m having such a great time collaborating with these guys; I’m surprised at how much I like the clothing despite having my serious reservations about the ‘vibe’ of the website initially. 

It’s really nice to receive these clothes, try them on and look GUUURRRD. I didn’t expect to - I thought I’d look like an absolute moron (all flat-chested 5ft2 of me) in these Kardashian-wannabe pieces. I like to be proven wrong. And although we’ve had a couple of hiccups with sizing and quality so far (see my previous posts for details!) I’m really loving what I’m trying from ‘gram-famous Femme Luxe Finery.

THE WHITE DRESS EDIT | FEMME LUXE FINERY TRY-ON HAUL*


Don’t get me wrong; I adore the LBD, but there’s a special place in my heart for a Little White Dress. I accept that this is the completely wrong time of year to be writing up this blog post, but I was recently contacted by Femme Luxe Finery again and decided to put together an all-white lookbook. I have always loved white dresses because they’re feminine, a little bit romantic and it is quite literally the only colour on the planet that makes me look even a tiny bit tanned. I loved the choice of white dresses on their website and struggled to whittle it down to these four. So here they are!
