Flared Sleeves

Top - Zara; Jeans - Topshop; Shoes - Dorothy Perkins; Necklace - Zara (old); Bag - Dune 

Hi everyone, it's been a while! Back with a little outfit post, pictures are so much easier to take when it's approaching summertime - no avoiding the rain, wind etc. (well, less so than in winter anyway! *we love the British summertime!*)

The 70s trend is really popular at the moment, but flared trousers aren't the best for those of us who have been blessed with teeny short legs, so I've opted for a flared sleeve instead on this beautiful Zara blouse. It also has lace up detail at the side - hitting another trend on the head :). I styled it with blue Topshop jeans, nude heels and a Zara statement necklace. This outfit has become a desk-to-dinner go-to for me, so easy to wear and perfect for those in-between spring and summer evenings :)

Review: Soap & Glory Archery Brow Tint and Pencil

Like most other people I know, I love a good brow. I don't know how I used to not fill them with anything - I feel bare without a defined arch in my life! I normally use a brush and a powder to do my eyebrows, but I've picked up on a number of blogger girls using the Soap and Glory Archery Brow products for a more natural look. I chose the Tint and Pencil combination over the Pencil and Brush (intrigued by this tint business!) in the shade Brownie Points. 
My brows 'before' are quite dark and natural shaped anyway, but the light coverage of this pencil means I can build up to my desired colour easily, without going overboard (no furry slugs around here!). I used the pencil all over the brow first, and used the more pigmented tint in the mid to end area. I always fix my brows with a clear gel, brushing the hairs up a little so that they don't look too perfect, we like a bit of 'au naturale'! Overall, I'm quite impressed with my first dip into Soap and Glory cosmetics, will definitely be trying some more out :)
