Guest Post | Fashion Tricks for Working Millennial Ladies

Hello!

Unless you’re a millennial, chances are you won’t be able to keep up with this species. You’ll definitely get to admire them from afar and look to steal a few tricks that’ll make you just as amazing as they are, but you’ll always be left wondering “How on Earth are they juggling it all!?”. Yes, we’re giving ourselves the right to call this magnificent generation “species” as they are nothing like any generation we’ve seen before. Everything about them is at the highest speed possible: they walk, talk, type, brainstorm, chew, think, plan, laugh, and schedule meetings – all at the same time! Oh, and – apart from being extremely successful in their business fields of interest, they too manage to look amazing each time they leave the house (or just chill indoors, as well).

Fashion Tricks for Working Millennial Ladies

Naturally, with so many things to do, it sometimes feels just a tad overwhelming to resist the desire to rush into your business meeting wearing just your comfy pyjamas but hey – we’re all very much aware of the fact that fashion is more of a character statement than a beauty trick, so we do our best to impress. 
Here, a quick guide to all the millennial stunners who are choosing to always look great, no matter how tired or overworked they feel:

Fashion Tricks for Working Millennial Ladies
Invest in…
…A quality leather jacket, great jeans with an even better butt support, a blazer (a blazer is a must piece to have!) and a pencil skirt (knee-length or a bit shorter). For an everyday look that fits the office but sets you apart from the dull and mundane, these three pieces can make all the difference! One pair of jeans combined with different shirts (printed, silk, buttoned up, etc) and a blazer or a pencil skirt paired with a quirky graphic shirt and nice boots will definitely make you look great. Throw that leather jacket over and you’re all set!

Rely on...
...A bodycon or a maxi that’s not too tight can easily be your ace. Wear them for cocktail parties or team building drinks. To add a little bit of seriousness and sophistication to the look, use that blazer you own to wow. A bodycon tends to look perfect on all sizes, even though it follows the line of the body. Even if you are a few numbers up the “regular size” (whatever that is), browse through a variety of plus size women’s clothing and find the dress that’ll look amazing on your shape.

Don’t forget to pamper
Clothing alone does not make a style; it’s all about a combination of your fashion style and personal hygiene. To a millennial woman who is always on the go, it’s essential she doesn’t skip her beauty routine (otherwise, she’ll quickly fall into the rut and look years older than she is) and health habits. Don’t skip on your hairdresser appointments or your facials, ever! Have a massage at least once in two weeks and make sure you include at least some physical activity into your day (at least, walk to work). As for nutrition, always have a bottle of water with you, avoid pre-packed and greasy foods, eat greens, take your supplements regularly (your hair vitamins, vitamin B complex, vitamin C, etc) and try to squeeze in a nap in between meetings (no, we’re not joking). We know you are a superwoman, but even she needs to rest a bit!

Double C – chic and casual
A millennial lady boss simply can’t give in to a style that’s too tight or too… anything. The more casual the better. However, this doesn’t mean coming into work in your sweats. Rather, making sure you combine your pieces in such a manner that you’re comfy sitting through all the meetings you’ve got without secretly unbuttoning your jeans. Essentially, don’t force a fashion style onto your life – rather, work your style into your life and adjust it.

Steal from Pinterest

Dear millennial lioness, stay amazing and use our advice for the best! Good luck!

Guest Post | Why Night Cream Is an Essential Part of Your Skincare Routine

Hello!

Taking care of your skin is one of the best things you can do for yourself, and if you want to know how to do it properly, just keep on reading. Here are some useful tips on how to come up with an effective skincare routine that features one of the beneficial products on the market – a night cream. Enjoy!

The importance of a proper skincare routine

We can’t emphasise enough the importance of appropriate skincare routine. First of all, skin is your largest organ that can quickly absorb almost anything you apply to it, which is exactly why you should give your best to give it proper care. Of course, your skincare routine should be tailored particularly for your skin type, so make sure to determine it in the first place. Once that’s done, you should do a little research on the products appropriate for your skin. There are many specific formulas designed for different skin types, so be sure to look for one that suits your needs in the best possible way. From a day cream, which is essential throughout the day, to a night one that’s crucial during night – all these skincare products are really important if you want to take care of yourself, so don’t skip any of them!

What should my everyday skincare routine consist of?

The first step in any effective skincare routine is cleansing, so you need to get a gentle, water-soluble cleanser to remove excess oil, debris, dirt and makeup residue from your face. Just make sure that your cleanser doesn’t contain alcohol, since it can really dry out your skin. Toner comes next, and it is designed to calm your skin and make it much smoother. Besides that, it also contains some essential skin-replenishing ingredients that are much needed after cleansing. Moisturiser is another crucial product, because it keeps your skin hydrated and nourished all day long. Needless to say, a night cream is an absolute must, since your skin tends to lose essential moisture at night. That’s why you should help it restore hydration and absorb active ingredients. You should also incorporate a high-quality serum into your skincare routine if you haven’t already. This product will even out your skin tone and offer anti-ageing protection, which is definitely what you should look for!

Why should I use a night cream?

As already stated, night creams and serums are particularly beneficial because they contain a wide range of ingredients essential for proper nourishment. These are designed to improve your skin while you’re sleeping, which is why you shouldn’t skip them under any circumstances. Apart from moisturising and hydrating your skin, these also have a power of repairing damage caused by the sun’s rays, air pollution, free radicals, and even makeup. Their active ingredients are beyond beneficial, especially if you’re always on the go and don’t have much time to take proper care of your skin on a daily basis. Of course, a good night cream should be a legitimate part of your skincare routine once you reach 30, so make sure to get it as soon as possible!

How to pick an appropriate night cream?

Lightweight formulas such as gels and serums are perfect for oily skin, since they won’t make it feel sticky and greasy all day long. On the other hand, dry skin requires a bit thicker products that provide enough hydration and nourishment. Sensitive skin is particularly tricky, but you really don’t have to worry – organic beauty products are gaining momentum these days, and they’re great for all skin types, including sensitive! Of course, night creams are also very important when it comes to anti-ageing, so don’t skip them if the first fine lines have shown. As you age, your skin becomes much drier and less elastic, which results in dull skin and wrinkles, but don’t worry – you can slow that down by using an appropriate night cream!

As you can see, a proper night cream can really save your skin by nourishing it to the max and preventing wrinkles and fine lines. Just make sure to pick the proper one for your skin type, and you’re halfway there!

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Rose Blush Review

Hello!

A couple of months ago now I went on a little shopping trip to Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet and while I was there I popped into the Make-up Outlet store!

I managed to pick up a few items but my main reason for going in was to find a new lipstick for work. Yes, I probably have a handful at home I could already use BUT I wanted to find a shade that would match my all time favourite Rimmel lipstick from the Kate Moss Nude range.

In the end I decided on Rose Blush from Rimmel's Moisture Renew range as it seemed like a nice pinky nude shade that I could wear in the day or to work. I've brought other shades from the Moisture Renew collection and I've been really impressed with their glossy and long-lasting formula. It's almost like you can't believe it's a high street brand!

Now I wouldn't say this is a perfect match for my favourite but for £2.99, it's still a great lipstick and I'm hardly going to moan!
