New spring accessories, beauty & fragrance

(This post includes affiliate links, some of the products featured are PR samples which will be marked with *)

Spring is playing tricks on us and the rain is back somehow, but I am fully in Spring/Summer mode and I am enjoying more colour. I switched up my makeup too and I am using more corals and pinks and my skin is definitely ready to catch some rays and enjoy more sunshine!


I added some lovely earrings to my already excessive collection, but I know these will be well loved. The Star & Moon Earrings are an ebay bargain costing only £2.75 with free delivery (UK seller).  I also picked up the pink speckled plastic pair from Primark (only £1.00 in the sale) and the two bottom pairs from H&M for £3.00 each. They have loads of last years designs on sale in store, so pop in if you're looking for a bargain. I got some hair grips from Primark too, but I haven't used any yet (except one here).

Bobbi Brown never fail to bring out fantastic releases for Spring and this Infra-Red Eye Shadow Palette*(£36.50) is a perfect mix of matte, metallic and sparkle brown and neutral shades for a gorgeous golden smokey eye. I will be reviewing it separately with swatches, so keep your eyes peeled. We also have some John Lewis exclusives, including a beautiful Bronzing Duo*(£32.00) and some stunning Molten Metals Liquid Eyeshadows* (£18.50), which are super pigmented and lightweight and don't budge all day! I am so impressed (I will be reviewing and swatching these asap!) See below:

Next we have some new Body Mists from Missguided*. These come in 290ml bottles and retail at £10.00. I have Vibe Enhancer* with notes of apple, bergamot, grapefruit, lemon, mandarin, jasmin, lily of the valley, raspberry, strawberry, tropical fruits, caramel, kashmir fusion, musk and vanilla and Instant Feels* featuring notes of pear, raspberry, strawberry, bergamot, mandarin, cassis, peony, jasmine sambac, amber, patchouli, musk and sweet vanilla. I love body mists for Spring/Summer and these smell gorgeous and great if you're on a budget.

My skin always needs extra hydration and the new L'Occitane Aqua Reotier Mineral Moisture Mask*(£32.00) is perfect for hydrating and plumping the skin. It's made with mineral-rich RĂ©otier water, hyaluronic acid and water-binding molecules to intensely quench skin's thirst and minimise the appearance of pores. It leaves my skin plump, soft and glowy and is ideal for all skin types. It can be used as an overnight mask or a quick 10 minute treatment mask. I would highly recommend if your skin needs a boost!

I was also kindly sent the new Herbae EDP*(£60.00) inspired by and based on the wild grasses that grow in the heart of Provence. It is a green scent with floral notes and it smells very fresh and unique. It features top notes of Ambrette Seed, Vert de Bergamot Essence and Pink Peppercorn, heart notes of White Nettle Flower Accord, Wild Rose Accord, Bramble Accord and Clary Sage Essence and base notes of Wild Grass, Captive Musk and Cashmeran. It's completely different than all my other fragrances and reminds me of a walk through a meadow.

I mentioned these Miu Miu sunglasses* in a previous post, but I have been wearing these constantly and I am obsessed! Absolutely stunning and perfect for Summer, so another mention is a must!


Are you ready for Spring/Summer? Have you switched up your wardrobe, accessories and makeup?
