Top - Topshop / Jacket - Stradivarius / Jeans - Topshop / Shoes - Topshop / Bag - Zara

I'd like to introduce you to my current love; the one that puts a smile on my face, the one that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy, the one that protects me and the one that is always by my side.
Ladies and Gentlemen, this is my jacket (what else?) 

From the silver buttons to the real leather (and ultra soft texture), this jacket is my perfect Spring piece. It's lightweight enough to not bring on any summer sweats, yet thick enough to shield me from the unexpected chill of a summer's evening. And for £48? I'd call that getting your money's worth.

Any product that is pink or nude in colour seems to be automatically making its way into my shopping basket at the moment. I love how pretty this season's colours are, and without veering too much into Barbie territory, I'm sure my wardrobe will soon be 80% pink at the rate I'm going. I love the girly edge it gives lingerie, or the softness it gives the belt...and, well, what's a wishlist without a bit of Mansur Gavriel?

Dress: Warehouse / Shoes: ASOS / Bag: Zara / Leather Jacket: Zara / Belt: Accessorize

A reoccurring annoyance of mine, being 5' 2", is the constant paranoia of appearing as though I'm playing dress-up in my Mum's wardrobe. 
Oversized Cardigans - Just forget it
Boyfriend Fit Jeans - I look about 12
Longline Shirts - We've switched from Mum's wardrobe, to Dad's. 

This only continues when tackling the midi trend. Midi dresses often veer into the maxi territory, or just hang terribly and sometimes I think it's better to just steer clear. But then I went into Warehouse, and I gazed upon the beauty that is this. My preconceptions, inhibitions, and bank-fund awareness went out the window and two seconds (or twenty minutes after a serious try on) later, I was walking out of the shop, dress in tow. 

I've styled this with a belt to give it a little more shape and my favourite ASOS heels for an evening look. I'm still worried about styling this for the day, so any shoe recommendations would be welcome.

Has anybody else started their Spring shopping? What do you think of midi dresses?

I hear a lot of amazing things about using beauty blenders/sponges to apply make-up but have only ever invested in a Primark dupe-it didn't expand in water and when damp, merely moved my make-up around rather than help it absorb into my skin. I sometimes used it dry, but that really mattified my skin which isn't always my desired affect. So when the chance arose to try a Brush Works item, the Complexion Sponge was a must have. I also received the Real Techniques Bold Metals Tapered Blush brush which is definitely the most beautiful brush I now own.

I first tried the Complexion Sponge after I'd applied my base with a foundation brush and then finished it off with my damp sponge. It made my foundation look incredible, especially considering the last week or so it hasn't sat properly on my nose for some reason. I also love the shape of it as it's perfect for around the eyes and getting in those hard to reach areas. 

I then tried the Beauty Works sponge again but to apply a full face of foundation. Not only did it help me use far less product, but gave my face a really nice dewy look which is something I struggle to achieve. It's safe to say my Primark sponge is officially binned, and this is my new favourite way to apply my makeup. 

The Real Techniques Tapered Blush brush has a tip designed for sculpting and highlighting, but I really wanted to try it for powder. I'd read really good things about setting your powder with this brush, especially under the eyes and underneath your contour. This and my Laura Mercier powder is just a dream combination. Personally I don't think I would use this for highlighter as I like it to be very controlled under my brow bone and on my cheekbones, so a fan brush is much better for this. 

Both make-up brushes were sent to me by MakeUpBrushes.co.uk and they also stock other incredible brands such as The Vintage Cosmetics Company and Japonesque. I really like the idea of being able to buy different branded make-up brushes from one site and with free delivery, it's easier than heading to the shops! 

Has anybody tried either of these brushes before? Do you have a favourite brush?
