Majestical Jewelry* & GIVEAWAY!




Tortoise Shell Hoop Earrings c/o Majestical

(Disclaimer: This was gifted to me but all opinions are my own & 100% honest)

Majestical is an online store that sells a whole range of well, jewelry - earrings, bracelets, necklaces., Pandora-esque charms..the whole lot. Perfect for gifts! The prices range from super cheap and affordable trendy pieces to more high-end, 'one of a kind' statement jewelry for that glam event so whether you're younger or more mature, they've got it covered!

The earrings are of great quality and despite being tortoise-shell, they were relatively light!
I will admit that when I first saw these earrings, my first reaction was, "Hmmm...those look a tad mature...I don't think it'll suit me..." But, I think I can make it work and I'm always up for a challenge so look out for an outfit post on Saturday (so..get ready)! Nevertheless, they came beautifully packaged and even has their own box and pouch which is super convenient for gifting - no wrapping needed!


Here are some of my top picks - a mix of pastel, tribal, dainty and statements that are all between US$13 to US$30! Bargain!

Bargain eBay Sunglasses


Since I showed you some of my Harry Potter Gems that I found on eBay last week and it got a positive response! So here's the result of another 'trailing through eBay' excursion :P


It's spring...the temperature is warming up and the Sun is starting to come out...which means that the one thing that one must stock up on are sunglasses. Not only do they keep the glaring sun rays out from your eyes, but they make you look insanely chic as well - prior to this, I own 3 pairs ;)
But of course, you don't have to spend an exuberant amount! Not when you have eBay on your side ;) Here are some bargains that I found!




Pink Sunglasses£2.09 / US$3.51

Pastel colours this spring aren't just limited to clothing. Why not wear them on your sunglasses too! I'm a sucker for pink so this pastel/baby pink shade immediately caught my eye. I love that it's slightly rounded and has gold accents - especially the arrows at the front!




Floral Sunglasses - £2.08 / US$3.50

My sister actually got these for herself but I had to feature them!
Florals. Another major print for spring. I'd quote Miranda Priestly from 'The Devil Wears Prada' but I've read that wayyy too many times :P (Now that I'm writing this, I think I'll go watch the movie later :D)
I love love love that the floral pattern is subtle and almost has a translucent stain glass effect, giving it a vintage vibe




Here you can see the size - yes, it does take up like half my face but that's because I've got a small one! My only peeve is that it won't sit properly and keeps sliding down! Of course, I'm blaming my small head for this one. D: Although the description says that it has good anti-UV function, at that price, I would take that with a pinch of salt. 


Have you bought any sunglasses lately? Which is your favourite pair?

Guest Post // 4 Overnight Beauty Products You Should Be Using

Being a student with exams coming up (in 2 weeks! #helpme) stress and late nights are definitely taking a toll on me as I often prioritize revision over sleep...after all, what great harm can 2 hours less sleep do to you right? And then, after all that, I wake up wondering why I look like I've just stepped out of a zombie movie...
Anyway, here is Carly Woods' guest post on the overnight beauty products that you should be using to disguise the not-so-beauty sleep!

-------------



When it comes to beauty sleep, I think we generally fall into two categories; those who have managed 8 hours of sleep a night and those who haven’t. For the ones who haven’t, they consequently have to do a darn good job faking it.

So, why does this happen? Simply put, sleep is an essential component to an effective skin care regimen, a time when our skin heals and repairs itself. Therefore, if you’re not getting enough sleep, your skin may start to suffer.

If you need help utilizing the small number of hours you do get or you want to ensure you are stretching your 8 hours as far as they can go, you need the right tools. There are specific night time products that can work in harmony with your skin’s renewal process. More than not, these products will be heavier and thicker consistencies. For this reason, washing your face in the morning is equally as important as washing it at night – you need to remove these heavy products or your skin may become congested.

1. Begin With The Base

First, I always recommend using a serum. Facial serums are used to address specific problems such as wrinkles, aging and brightness. Apply a few drops to clean skin and using your hands press the serum into your skin.



2. Add The Primer


Especially in the colder months, you want to follow step one with a layer of oil for added hydration. Plus, you will wake up with beautiful and plump skin.


3. Don’t Forget To Moisturize!

Lastly, simply apply a moisturizer.  My advice is to opt for a comforting and hydrating formula. I like to see it as a blanket; keeping in the goodness of the serum and oil.


4. Last But Not Least - Give Your Eyes Some Love

Don’t forget an eye cream! Try to use a powerful wrinkle reducing formula. Make sure you always use a very tiny amount; overloading the skin around your eyes with too much of a heavy product can cause puffiness and sometimes breakouts.

On days when you have little to no time or just want to fall into bed, try an overnight facial. Now this doesn’t mean you have to lie still with your face up to ensure you don’t cover your pillow in product. You can use facial creams that are highly concentrated and you use like a serum or moisturiser for a powerful whack of goodness.


What would your face say about your current night time routine?



Love,
