So I loved all these pieces way too much to save them until this month's festivals to show you and as soon as I received them I threw them on and headed out! I'm pretty positive my SS15 wardrobe is 90% suede now and only half of it all has even been featured so far. It's definitely safe to say it's the trend of the year - and if you guys checked out my Boohoo and Primark A/W preview posts, you'll know it's staying in full-force for next season as well (because what on Earth would I do with all these amazing suede pieces otherwise?)

Brand Love: Nip + Fab





As you know my beauty posts are kind of few-and-far-between but when I really love a brand, I can't resist sharing. My recent fave has been Nip + Fab. I've been using the Dragon's Blood Fix Plumping Serum for quite a while (long before Kylie Jenner claimed it to be her favourite product) and found it to be the perfect product for those constantly on the move. I generally have a pretty busy lifestyle with my day-to-day never being the same. I even work nights which means sleep is hard to come by and this really takes a toll on my skin sometimes. Enter Dragon's Blood Plumping Serum. This product moisturizes, hydrates and absorbs excess oil, as well as 'illuminates'. Paired with another favourite product of mine by Lancome (the all-amazing Dreamtone), i've definitely found it to improve my skin enough for me to go make-up-free happily!

Next up is the holy Glycolic Fix Overnight Purifying Serum - my ultimate favourite Nip + Fab product. Although I don't really have breakouts very often unless i've really overdone it with the fast food, my skin is fairly problematic. I suffer from blackheads in the nose area sometimes, and as well as being oily when wearing foundation, it's also really dry at the same time - but this is probably due to dehydration. Glycolic Fix works overnight to fight blackheads and impurities and prevent acne, as well as exfoliate the skin and i've definitely noticed a difference in the few weeks that i've been using this - not to mention it smells amazing. It leaves such a nice, soft feeling on your skin the following morning and just as it says, significantly decreases blackheads.

And onto the last two products - the more exciting ones i'd say - Nip + Fab's body range. These products were all over the media as 'plastic surgery in a bottle' and were selling out in stores at their release due to the rave reviews they were getting in the media. I remember reading about them briefly but never took any notice as I was too young to care about cellulite or the post-uni body, so I never bothered to try them until now. But I do have to say... Miracle in a bottle. I've been using Tummy Fix on and off for a couple of months now and I really love it - particularly as a gym aid and if you're looking for a quick appearance fix in a bikini or underwear. After a few days, there was a noticeable difference in my tummy and my stomach appeared tighter than before, without changing a single thing from my usual routine. I mean, it's not gonna give you a six pack overnight (or at all for that matter), but if you're not far from your goal and you just need a tighter appearance, then this is the one for you. I haven't used it as often as the bottle recommends, so I can't imagine how great the results must be if you do but i'm definitely going to start after seeing what it can do with minimal use. Both products again smell amazing, and are quite refreshing to use. 
I haven't used the Cellulite Fix as much as I have the Tummy Fix, but again, I have noticed a slight improvement since using it in my thigh area after quite the pizza binge, working impressively fast! Basically, what i'm trying to say is that it works and the products are great, especially for the high street price tag attached. 
Now, off back to the store to buy the entire range..... Toodles!
