DUO Boots From Day To Night Competition




Many thanks to the lovely ladies over at Duo Boots who allowed me to choose one pair of Duo footwear for their from day to night competition. I chose the above flat suede ankle boots in the tan shade, which I felt could easily be dressed up or down and which can smoothly transform from a day to night look. 

I had to create two outfits, one for day and one for night using the same pair of ankle boots for each look. Unfortunately just after receiving the boots I broke my foot which is now in plaster to just below the knee, therefore I could not photograph myself in the outfits whilst wearing the boots, boo.

Instead I've created my outfits using pictures below in which I would wear for my day to night time look.

Day:



* DUO Boots Flat Tan Suede Ankle Boots
* Zara Yellow Dress with Pockets
* Reiss Ribbed Detail Leather Jacket
* Mulberry Oak Bayswater

I love this outfit, I would wear the leather jacket unzipped over the yellow dress with bare legs making this the perfect versatile daytime outfit. 


Night: 




* DUO Boots Flat Tan Suede Ankle Boots
* Oasis Tropical Forest Shorts
* Topshop Plain V-Neck Camisole
* Oasis Tropical Forest Long Blazer
* New Look Block Colour Envelope Clutch Bag

The "Matchy-Matchy" shorts and blazer are bang on trend at the moment and are designed to be worn as a pair. The pretty flower print of the outfit will be the perfect night time look teamed with the cute ankle boots. Very Chic. 

The boots are extremely versatile, very comfy and I'm sure will last me throughout the seasons. To check out DUO Boots you go to their website www.duoboots.com, Instagram account, Twitter and Facebook

Montagne Jeunesse Face Mask Review



I kindly received the Montagne Jeunesse Hot Spring Sauna and Black Seaweed Peel Off Masque Face Masks to review on my blog.

The face mask sachets are priced at £1.00 and can be found in all major retailers including Asda, Boots, Claires, Morrisons, Sainsbury's, Superdrug, Tesco and Wilkinson.

Firstly I tried the Hot Spring Sauna face mask. To use I simply cleansed my face, left it wet then gently massaged the mask into my skin. I left the mask on my skin for around 20 minutes or so then rinsed with warm water. The mask had a slight smell of ginger, a very fresh and calming scent which was very pleasant. Once I applied the mask to my face I could instantly feel the warming sensation which disappeared after only a few minutes or so. What I like most about this mask is that when I came to remove it with water it also exfoliated my skin leaving it super smooth, clean and sparkling. The only downside for me is that I thought that the warming sensation would last longer than 2-3 minutes. 

Secondly I tried the Black Seaweed Peel Off Masque. To use I cleansed my face and applied the mask to my skin. I left the mask on for around 20 minutes or so and then gently peeled it off. The mask peeled off extremely easily, I admit that it felt extremely satisfying peeling the mask off my skin, definitely my favourite part. The scent of the mask was very refreshing and not at all overpowering. I felt that this leaved my face feeling super soft, super smooth and extremely clean. This one was without a doubt my favourite and one which I will be buying time and time again.
