High Necks and Denim with George

Disclaimer: the day these photos were taken, I was bloomin' freezing so a jumper & jeans combination is definitely not advisable unless you throw on a jacket. Trust me.

But onto the post.

I was asked by George (the clothes part of Asda) to style up some of their denim from day to night so this week my two posts will be showing this pair of jeans in two outfits, one that would be suitable for day, and the other for night. This outfit was all about comfort as these photos were being taken after a nine till three shift which was really my priority.

I'm all about turtle neck jumpers and this one from H&M was wonderfully oversized and slouchy and ever so comfortable. I wore it with these amazing Wonderfit Skinny Jeans which are incredible. They're so soft and comfortable but they're designed to hold their shape even after washing. Sizing is a bit weird because they come in S, M and L but because they adapt to your shape, it doesn't really have an effect.

Worn with my Stan Smiths, I love how this outfit looked. It was very easy to wear and comfortable and I'm so happy with the jeans because lets be honest, you can't go wrong with a good pair of jeans.

Make a Mess with Mira

I love challenges where I'm given an idea for a blog post and have the chance to make something myself so when I got asked by Mira to create some of my own beauty products using water from the tap

I have majorly sensitive skin so I erred away from anything that would come into contact with my skin so opted to make the homemade lip scrub and lip balm instead of anything that could aggravate my skin. 

The lip scrub is wonderful - it reminds me so much of Lush sugar scrubs but of course, as I was the one making it, it's nice to know what goes into it. I mixed brown sugar with some melted coconut oil which smells amazing and then popped it into a little pot. I keep it in the fridge and obviously as it's all natural, there's nothing harmful in it. 

And then I made the lip balm which consists of melted soy wax, a vitamin e capsule, a ginger capsule and the tiniest bit of fudge flavouring so it tastes yum! The vitamin e is brilliant for your skin and the ginger makes your lips tingle and stimulate blood flow.
