Liz Earle October Skincare Essentials Offer

I love Liz Earle. I've been an avid fan now for quite a few years although I do tend to swap and change quite frequently and what with being a beauty blogger I'm sure it comes with the role, doesn't it? However, I started college last month (I know at the grand old age of 26!) where I am training to be a beauty therapist. We have the most wonderful tutor who has worked in the industry for years and also manages a salon herself so is definitely in the know when it comes to skincare. We treat her words as gospel and each week make mental notes of skincare do's and don't s  We have spent the past few weeks giving and receiving full dermalogica facials which has given me the opportunity to fully understand my skin type and what products I should, and also shouldn't be using on my skin. However, dermalogica doesn't really seem to be agreeing with my skin at all! 

Our tutor, Julie is a fan herself of the Liz Earle range, especially the cleanse & polish (Holy grail! Do people still use that term?!) and to cut a long story short, I decided to repurchase the full routine again for myself. Best. Decision. Ever.

I opted (as the title suggests) for the October skincare essentials set, so for £45 received a large size cleanse and polish, 2 muslin cloths, a 200ml skin tonic, a 50ml skin repair moisturiser and a complimentary sheer skin tint and perfume sample, as well as free delivery. What a mouth ful and absolute bargain for £45? Altogether its worth over £87 so its already giving you a saving of £42.
All the products compliment themselves so nicely and feel like such a treat for what seems like minimal effort. I will definitely be treating myself to more products soon, the gentle exfoliator and a face mask are on my wishlist. I have even got some of the girls on my course ordering too! 

This offer runs out on the 28th October so you have 5 days to take advantage!

Easton West?!

Working with children, I always contemplate what I would call my children if I were to ever have any (hopefully one or two one day) however with most names I always seem to associate with someone I know or a child I have taught! 

I am a huge fan of Kim Kardashian and all the Kardashian clan and as many await the arrival of the second Kardashian-West baby many speculate which name Kim Kardashian and her husband will choose for her second child, a leading UK bingo company has released a book of the UK’s top baby names.

Whilst celebrities such as Fearne Cotton have recently chosen names such as Honey, the nation’s parents have been opting for traditional options like the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Which trend will Kim K and Kanye West follow?

During the first few months of their second pregnancy announcement, Kim denied the couple will be naming their little one after a direction (South). However, since then there has been multiple reports from a source close to the family that the little boy will be named in Kimye’s family theme and be called Easton West.

Should the family decide on a more traditional, literary name like Oliver, they’ll be in good company as the boy's name has been at the top of the Office for National Statistics list since 2013. Another choice could be Jack - often considered to be the name of eccentric, rebellious yet charming individuals, the little boys name could link to some of Kanye’s famous traits.

Who knows! What do you think they will choose? Theres not much longer until we find out and I for one can't wait to see which name-route they take!

8 Accessories To Transform Any Outfit

The secret weapon to stellar style is having an arsenal of statement accessories. Accessories have the power to drastically change any ensemble, and a woman who knows how to pair statement pieces with any kind of outfit is a fashion force to be reckoned with. The thought that you must go shopping all the time in order to obtain a fresh look is simply not true. All you need are some truly transforming necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and maybe even a nose ring. Then, to make an old outfit new again, simply slip on one piece of statement jewellery.

Some women make the mistake of wearing too much jewellery at one time. Quoted in Harper's Bazaar, Coco Chanel gives some of the best accessory advice to date: "Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory." Her words have never been truer. To give some examples, I’ve rounded up the ultimate outfit-altering accessories that don’t require the support of other jewellery. With these pieces, only wearing one is plenty!

Add-On Ornate
Embellish a plain top with the addition of a statement choker necklace. Ornate and eye-catching, a piece like this will instantly add flair to any solid colour top or dress. Draw attention when hailing a black cab or holding your tea with a thick, bejewelled cuff on your wrist. It provides just enough chunkiness and a stylish pop of colour.
Go Glam
Looking to turn an old outfit into a head-turner? Something as simple as glamourous cuff could be all you need to “update your look,” a goal that Lyst advocates when browsing their jewellery collection. Big things sometimes come in small packages. Try a pair of pearl studs with mink post detail in the back to put a luxurious spin on your night out look. When your hair is up, you’re sure to turn heads.

Find Your Edge
Rocker chic chokers reminiscent of the ‘90s are back and bolder than ever. Get your grunge on with a cool choker, perfect for adding a little spice your sweet style. You don’t need your nose pierced to try a septum ring. With faux options hitting the scene, this unexpected trend is a great way to embellish a “sleek black slip or shift dress" for evenings, as explained in a how-to-wear guide on Glamour.
Theme Pieces
Try on a new vibe with a necklace inspired by nature’s finest. A themed piece is one of the easiest ways to change the look of an outfit without much planning, so why not channel the great outdoors? If sweet is what you aim for, a charm necklace with darling details is a fun way to get playful with your style. Charm necklaces are also ideal for letting your personality shine through.
There are plenty of statement jewellery pieces that can stand alone and still take your outfit to the next level. Look for unique, bold accessories just a tad outside of your comfort zone, and you just might find your favourite new way to dress up a tired look.
