Winter Neutrals

coat: Primark (Old) | dress: Second Hand | shoes: Second Hand | Belt & Stole: Vintage | bag: Second Hand

I can't believe how long it's been since I've done an outfit post! They really are my favourite posts to do but it's been hard finding the time and the help to get out and take some photographs beyond the walls of my bedroom! It had been so long that I completely forgot how to pose, walk or even smile without looking like a weirdo. I also forgot how many people passing by like to gawk and watch what you're doing.....hmph.

Anyhoo, battling my confidence as well as the wind we finally got some half-decent snaps of this dress I managed to bag off eBay for a coupe of a quid. I rarely wear anything lighter than grey in colour (especially in winter) but I do like this white dress combo, it's super thick too so keeps me nice and toasty! On that note...I'm gonna pop the kettle on and have a much needed brew!

Radiant Skin with Nourish

I've been using this serum for around a week now, but on the first try I saw instant results. My skin appeared smoother and had a lovely glow. I'm really pleased with this serum, it has definitely become a part of my everyday beauty regime.

Here's a few technical bits and bobs:
It stimulates production of collagen making the skin feel firmer, smoother and fresher
Tonka bean extracts boost skins luminosity
Alpine foxberry enhance natural radiance and evens skin tone

So for anyone looking to give their skin a boost, this organic natural serum will do just that. What's great is that a little bit of this product goes a long way, I can see this lasting me a good six months and so at the price tag of £20, it's really worth the purchase!

Would you be interested in trying a product like this? How important are natural products as part of your beauty regime?

Taking Time Out: Matcha Tea + Discount Code!

I'm a Yorkshire lass through and through and so the importance of tea has been drummed into me from birth.
It's become even more important nowadays as I find a moment of bliss within my hectic schedule when I make a cup of tea. Also, tea has serious healing qualities, from mending a broken heart to aiding a shitty period, tea has always been there to lend a warm hug.
So when it comes to the different varieties of teas, I have experimented over the years. I used to drink your standard breakfast tea (builders style of course, I am northern after all aint got no time for too much milk or sugar in me brew) then I was converted to green tea, but now, I am aaaall about matcha!

Matcha is a concentrated form of green tea that has unbelievable health benefits including:
  • Energy boosting qualities
  • Improved learning performance
  • Immune system support
  • Increased metabolism
  • Youthful looking skin

The list goes on and on! This stuff is seriously good for you and having used it as part of my daily routine for now a week, I have noticed an instant difference within my energy levels....which as a student is always beneficial! I got mine from Teapigs and have used lots of their products before, so can wholeheartedly recommend them as a brand, especially as all their teas are organic.

What's even better, you can now get 20% off any of their Matcha products by using the code
'matcha15' so now you have the perfect excuse to go and try it!

Have any of you tried Matcha before? Would you now be interested in trying it? Let me know below or tweet me at @dimplesdiaries
