Turtle Jumper

Big turtle necks are  my thing for winter. I remember the day I came across this gorgeous jumper with my friend. I went crazy cause I knew I had to buy it. In a way it reminded me of something Liana De La Rey would wear, (don't ask me why) lol... It gives me a sense of 1960s kind of fashion. Anyway I love that I can wear it as a jumper or as a dress. 


As you can tell I have two different hairstyles on the pictures below. I  didn't mange to take full body pictures with the long hair, but on Sunday I wore the  jumper again but this time with black jeans and high knee boots. So I included that also.

Khaki Sunday

So it's been a while since I last blogged. I thought I'd come through and share with you a few contents from my Instagram. I am a lot more active there so don't hesitate to follow me @edwigealamode.  I haven't  been up to anything exciting but I have managed to take a few selfies here and there.

This whole week I will be sharing pictures and outfit details. 
Below are pictures from a few weeks ago I headed to church, I opted for this outfit for comfort. I wear heels to work most of the times? so when I'm not working I tend to wear trainers.

Sea Deep




Blogging while on holiday was a myth  due to lack of Internet. At the same time it allowed me to fully enjoy myself. I was in Santorini  for 5 days and honestly it was beautiful. I would love to return for my honeymoon... honestly its paradise! 


             
                                        
               


                  


Santorini Beyond perfection

I honesty had the time of my life in Greece (Santorini), it's  so pretty filled with unreal views.  I hardly did any colour editing to my pictures while out there, simply because there was no need.. Honestly the sky is perfectly blue, the sea just incredibly perfect and the sun is just beautiful! I enjoyed traveling to different island and exploring the towns.  
 
 
This time away really gave me the opportunity to peacefully think, relax, and develop myself mentally.

When in Rome

Hello my lovelies! I hope you are well and enjoying your week far. I thought I'd write a quick update about my trip to Rome.

I visited Rome with my best mate for 5 days, which was really nice. We are both very interested in the same things. We both love history and learning about other cultures. We had the time of our lives visiting some of the cities most amazing landmarks. I've always wanted to visit Rome after watching when in Rome and eat, pray and love.

Rome is a beautiful city filled with beautiful history and it has a lot to offer in terms of activitys and sightseeing tours. I had a great time learning about the political history of Italy and of the Roman Catholic. If you follow me on Instagram then i'm sure you've seen pictures I previously posted, but below are some more.

Birthday Celebration!!

Hello there! I hope you are well and enjoying your week so far. I celebrated my birthday yesterday, I'm really grateful to God for protecting and guiding me. I didn't plan anything but my Mr did, so we spent the evening togther. We headed out to Gaucho picadilly circus for dinner, I must say the interior in there is amazing!  I love the big chandeliers and the black theme it's very glamorous. The atmosphere was great and romantic to be fair so it was a perfect choice.


Gaucho is well known for their fine Argentine steaks, the meal was gorgeous and filling. It was my first time to eat there so I didn't  really no what to expect from the menu. We went for the A la carte menu I got the classic Pork Matambre which is the "accorn fed Iberico pork,  sweet potato, with a conflict of coriander salad". This was so tasty I ate everything on my plate. I plan on returning for more meals, honestly it was too tasty. 


My Mr got the Gaucho Burger, "a blend of their four cuts of smoked bacon, caramelised onions, provolone cheese, garlic, mayonnaise and home made ketchup, served with chips". He also loved it and  cleared his plate, I honestly really enjoyed my birthday.

Here are more pictures:

Beauty Product Review

Happy Friday guys! I hope you enjoyed your week so far. I'm here with a review today, I really want to switch things up a little. I will also be sharing my favourite make up products very soon as well.  

I was sent these products by the lovely Isa at Sparkle PR to try out and I must I love these. I'm not just saying that because it was sent to me but I actually love the consistency.
              (Starting clockwise left)

The first product I used was the Proactive+ Complexion Perfecting Hydrator. I wanted to try the above mentioned product first, due to the fact that I've heard so much about the brand. I've seen loads of adverts via television with positive testmonies, and of course the forever growing celebrity endorsements. 

Before writing this post I did some research on the brand and I found that it's actually America's best selling acne system. According to their website this product is made to  " soothe irritation, brighten skin tone and visibly reduce post-acne marks without clogging the pores". 

The Complexion Perfectiong Hydrator according to the label has 0.5% of Salicylic acid which is good for easing acne. I don't suffer from acne or any major skin problems, But I've been suffering from dryness and dehydration on my face. I feel the proactive complexion Hydrator is actually helping my skin hydrate,  also I've  noticed my complexion is more bright. I've only been using this product for approximately one and a half week and already I see a difference. So I think it's worth purchasing, even though it's retailed for £29.99. 


SASS intimate Soothe & Smooth shaving gel is another item sent to me. I only used this product once on my legs and I must say it left my legs feeling smooth. It's a clear gel and  I remember it having a very cold sensation which I didn't really mind. According to the label at the back of the product it's made to prevent ingrowing hair. Another interesting fact about this product is that it's made for intimate use, meaning that we can use on our private parts because it's dermatologically tested. It's retailed for £10 at Boots which I think is a little much 
As this product isn't any different to other shaving gels that cost £5 or less.

I really like that SASSS shaving gel has instructions on the back of how to use the product. Advising me to apply it after washing, then waite for one minute and then shave. Like I mentioned above I like the way it made my legs feel pretty smooth so therefore I might repurchase. 



L.A.B multi purpose brush is amazing! It really reminds me of the real technique brushes due to it's softness and non shedding. It's retailer for £11.99 at Superdrug, I use it to apply my foundation, powder and blusher, I feel it blends really smoothly. I love a soft brush I can't deal with hard brushes as it irritates my skin. 

Acording to research "L.A.B2 brushes are made with fibreLuxe technology, specially designed with softness and contains a really high quality of filmaments". This is to allow the application to be smooth and well blended. I really look forward to purchasing their brushes because I think it's worth it. 


Once again massive thank you to Isa at Sparke PR for sending me these lovely items. 

Thank you for reading
