Best Dressed: AMAs 2014

I haven't exactly watched the American Music Awards yet but of course I was keeping a look out on whose red carpet looks were the best and thought I'd share it with you in a post. This will probably be a very short post but I love award shows so much and wanted to share this with you all. I've previously done posts like this and if you'd like you can read them here and here

Sisters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner

Ariana Grande and Selena Gomez

Whose red carpet look did you love? Who was your favourite performer of the show?

The Body Shop Seaweed Skincare Kit

My skin is your typical teenager skin, it plays host to many spots. Out of all the products I've used  in the past many end up failing to make a difference. I've never really purchased anything from The Body Shop before even though I've stepped in the shop so many times. The Body Shop are always receiving great reviews and so I thought I'd give their skincare range a closer look. The woman in my local store was very helpful, asking questions about my skin to find the best products, she recommended products from the seaweed range. I didn't want to splurge my money on full size products just in case they don't work out however I still wanted to try a few and that's why I bought this mini gift set for only £11. They do ones like this for all the ranges and I think it's a great way to test out different products. Although they're small they have lasted me quite a few weeks and I'm still going! This post is a cross between a review of the products and a skincare routine.

In the mornings I use the Seaweed Cleansing Facial Wash which creates a foam like texture. When I first used this I was amazed at how it instantly made my skin feel so soft but without me having to rush for a moisturiser as a result of my skin feeling dry. It definitely helped clear up my skin. (I substitute this for the Neutrogena Visibly Clear Spot Stress Control Daily Scrub twice a week)

After I wash my face I use the Seaweed Day cream which is a very light weight gel like cream. I apply it mainly to my t-zone which helps mattify those oily areas but without over drying the skin. I also use a thicker cream on top for my dry areas (Garnier Skin Naturals Moisture Match 'Start Afresh' Light softening cream

In the evenings I use the same facial was as the morning and then use the Seaweed Clarifying Toner after that step to clean of any makeup I may have missed. Like the face wash it leaves my skin feeling very soft and also very clean and refreshed.

Lastly after the toner I use the Seaweed Night Treatment, this is more like a gel than the day cream. I find that I have to apply it to my skin quite quickly as it seems to dry out and vanish if I take too long. Out of all these products this is probably my least favourite, I don't think it works for me and hasn't made a big difference, however this product could still work for you.

Overall I am very happy with this range and will be repurchasing the full size products once these have finished. Have you tried any of The Body Shop skincare range?

Autumn Clothing & Beauty Haul

As mentioned in a post I did last month (which you can read here) one thing I love about autumn is shopping! I've bought a few clothing and makeup pieces which I thought I'd share with you in one post, It's not much but still worth showing. I hope you like some of the things I bought and perhaps it'll give you some inspiration on things you could buy or an insight on whats out right now in stores. I'll try to link as many of the items as I can.

If you live in the UK you'll know how cold it can get so a parka is essential at this time of year!

I practically live in boots around this time of year and tend to pick up a new pair each time as I definitely get the wear out of them.

This black and grey striped dress is from H&M I couldn't find the link but I bought it recently so they probably still have it in store. They also have a black version too.I like to pair the dress above with this black crop top which I bought the same time as the dress but can't find it online sorry.

Yes I bought another pair of boots but I loved them too much to leave them.

I managed to pick up this dress from Primark for only £3 as it was in the sale so I'm not sure if you'll still be able to get this.

I finally got something from Tanya's cosmetics range.
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter Berry Smoothie 50

Let me know which piece was your favourite. What has been you favourite clothing/beauty purchase of the new season so far?
