Vans & Fishnets (& #Passion4Fashion Linkup)

I’m still officially in love with my vans, I just love how comfy they are and how easily they go with just about everything i own, cost per wear on these would be down in the pennies already i would imagine. Yesterday (when i wore this outfit) I added in my fishnet popsocks as a way of adding some interest to yet another jeans and jumper outfit. I’ve also worn this yellow jumper a few times too, you know me I just love getting good wear out of my clothes, it is so satisfying to have well loved and well worn items.

But, i’m not gonna lie, i honestly can not wait to start shedding the knitwear. Its still so chilly most days the thought of wearing anything less than long-sleeved knitwear makes me positively shudder with coldness. We had a glimpse of spring but it soon left us again with cold temps and pouring rain. (sorry, talking weather again aren’t i! I think it’s actually integral to being British, like its part of DNA , LOL!)

I’ve also started wearing my hair in its natural state of late too.. its really because i’ve been super lazy, but that’s ok sometimes, its having a good rest from heat and that can only be a good thing. I’ve started using some OGX products too and i’m really liking them so far. I’ll try and report back on them next week to let you know if i highly recommend.

And while i’m talking beauty products (well hair and beauty) after having months of bad skin (super bad break outs like i’ve never experienced before in my life!) i’ve also switched up my beauty routine completely.  10 days in and my skin is already SO much better. I have some lingering areas that are clearing slowly but surely, but no fresh break outs which feels so damn good. I’ve switched to the No7 range and i’m so impressed. I’ve just bought 3 more products to add in and hopefully standardise on a lot of their beauty products now too. Shall also keep you posted on that.

So yes, overhaul in progress and was very much needed and i’m very much feeling the benefits.

Ok brain dump over ,lol

Hows things with you?

Do you have any nice Easter plans? We’re off to the in-laws and and then maybe some Kitchen renovations which i’m so excited for!!!

    Another fab pop of colour sweater. I tried the pink Tu one with gems on but it’s huge . Sadly I had to return it.
