The Body Shop Haul



Since The Body Shop recently opened up near me, I decided to go in and pick up a few bits that I really wanted to try from their range. I asked on Instagram for your suggestions on which products you love the most, so I did take those recommendations into consideration whilst shopping there. I also filmed a video all about these recent purchases, so you can watch that here if you're interested. 

Firstly, I wanted to try some products from their skincare range, because I was definitely lacking some skincare products for my evening routine. 

I picked up the Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil, which I use as a serum at night after cleansing my skin and before applying a moisturizer. It has a really lovely scent and absorbs into your skin quite fast. I also wanted to try something from their Vitamin C range, so I went for the Vitamin C Daily Glow Cleansing Polish. This is basically a scrub cleanser, which is actually quite gentle on the skin. It has a nice citrus-type of scent and definitely cleanses your skin thoroughly. I feel like it's perfect to use after a regular makeup remover. From their makeup collection, I picked the Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder, which is one of those honeycomb-looking bronzers. I love this so much already, I've been using it everyday ever since I got it. It's perfect both for a subtle bronzed look, and for a deeper contour. I got it in the shade Dark Matte, in case you're wondering.

The next two products that I got are actually not for myself, they're Christmas gifts for some friends. They have such lovely gift sets currently, I might go and get some more actually. I picked up a set from their Coconut collection (the one with a hand cream and a lip balm) and one from their Spiced Apple collection (with a shower gel and a body butter).

That's pretty much everything that I got on this trip. Let me know if you have any other suggestions for products that I should try from The Body Shop. What are you favourite products from their range?

Burgundy Blanket Scarf | What I Wore


Coat: Reserved | Scarf: Only | Top: H&M | Jeans: H&M | Boots: Stradivarius

Ever since I bought this coat, I've been wearing it almost daily. I just really like the way it sits on the body, how structured it is and the dusty-pink colour it has. It's also a wool blend fabric, so it keeps me quite warm during these cold months. It's definitely my favourite coat at the moment. I paired it with a basic under-layer: a basic black top and a pair of black skinny jeans, both from H&M. To make the outfit more colourful, I added this burgundy blanket scarf that I got from Only and my burgundy ankle boots. I wore this outfit whilst doing some shopping this past weekend. I didn't really go crazy with the whole Black Friday deals, but I did get a few bits for Christmas gifts. I'm trying to get them done early this year, but I still have a lot of gifts that I need to get. How are you all doing with your Christmas shopping?

Green Cardigan | What I Wore

Cardigan: New Yorker | Top: H&M | Jeans: H&M | Boots: Deichmann | Necklace: H&M

I've been looking for a while to get a sweater in this emerald-green type of colour, as I think it's the perfect shade for the upcoming holidays (I'm already looking forward to Christmas, even though it's only November). However, most of the sweaters that I found in this colour were an odd shape. I feel like it's a trend going on with all these oversized sweaters. I usually like a nice baggy, cosy sweater, but the ones that I tried on in this shade had a really awkward shape on me for some reason. So when I found this cardigan in New Yorker the other week, I got so excited and bought it straight away. It's really easy to throw on top of a basic outfit to keep you warm. For today's outfit, I paired it with an all-black outfit underneath: a basic black top from H&M, a pair of black jeans (also from H&M), and my favourite pair of black ankle boots. I love these boots because they have the wedge type of heel, making these very comfortable to walk in, while also making you look taller. I decided to grab this brown bag that I've had for a few years (it was a birthday gift) and, for accessories, I went with a multi-layered charm necklace from H&M.
