MY ATLEISURE MUST HAVES!!

Hello Guys, 

Happy Monday to you all. I hope you are all having a lovely day so far,

Spring time is the most perfect time to up your Atleisure game due to the warmer months ahead, plus its also the time to get out there and get a lot more fitter and we all need a look that we can both rock in the gym and then again look cute if we need to go somewhere afterwards whether its to run some arrears or go for some lunch with the girls. Plus it also allows you to treat yourself to some really nice workout gear!!

I was inspired by Adore Me about doing a post on my Atleisure Must Haves. But before i share with you all my Atleisure Must Haves, first i would like to introduce you to Adore Me.

For all of you that are not that familiar, Adore me is a New York based lingerie company. Adore me provides quality and stylish designs for everybody that give you that extra boost of confidence and comfort as well. The also have a diverse range of products to choose from.  Adore's Me's Head of Design who is a former head of design at Victoria's Secret provides customers with stylish designs. They also offer a monthly subscription service that allows you to review a variety of their products and allows you to buy them in the future.

Now on to my Atleisure Must Haves........

LEGGINGS 

My first Atleisure Must Have is a good pair of leggings. I love wearing leggings that have a little extra something whether its a pop of colour, a fun pattern or cutouts. Not only are they comfy but they also give you a large range of movement when your working out and they also look cute when you pair them with an over sized top and a pair of trainers. 
I love these Leggings from Adore Me. They have a gorgeous pattern down along the sides along with a criss cross cutout detail. These leggings are ideal for working out in or running some errands.

You can find these and a lot more comfy active-wear, along with sleepwear, lingerie, bras, etc over on their website which you can fin here...AdoreMe!!


HOODIE 

Another Atleisure must have is a Hoodie. I could just live in Hoodie's as they are both warm and very comfy. You can dress up a look such as wearing a hoodie while going into the gym or running some errands, you can simply pair them with a pair of trainers or a pair of slip on's. There is a huge range of different types of hoodies anywhere. Personally i love hoodies that are white with a nice design or some really cute detail like the one pictured above.


GYM T-SHIRT

Next up is another firm favourite when it comes to Atleisure must haves, this White Block Gym T-shirt. I love buying these types of t-shirts in a bigger size as it adds a perfect amount of looseness which feels a lot more comfy especially when your working out in the gym, plus you can even wear it with your favourite leggings and trainers.


WORKOUT BRA

Another Atleisure must have is a good sports Bra. It basically keeps everything in place through an intense workout. They also provide support and reduces any movement, which can be very uncomfortable. Plus they also reduce any damage to the chest ligaments.
 In particular i love high neck sports bras as they are a style that is ideal for low impact activity which gives you the support you need. This one from AdoreMe comes with matching undies!!


BASEBALL CAP

Sometimes you just don't want to do anything with your hair and not even dry shampoo can even save you and that's where a Baseball Cap comes to the rescue.
 It is ideal for those days where your hair is in a total mess and you can wear them in almost every situation and they are the perfect Atleisure accessory. You can literally find them anywhere. This one is from ASOS is ideal for those not so hair days!!


TRAINERS

Last, but definitely not least, we can't forget a good pair of comfy Trainers. Personal i love my Nikes, i have around five pairs and they're great in the gym or when i'm out and about running errands. I love how Nike produce trainers with a fresh, stylish approach to causal apparel.
I love these trainers from the Nike range with they're punchy, modern colour taking center stage, while been comfortable and durable to the brand's core. And whats even better is that you can wear them straight out of the gym with the rest of my atleisure must haves and still have a complete chic look!!

Next up is this 'Clean on Me' Micellar Water which is from Penney's. I seen this Micellar Water a few months ago, so on a trip to Penney's i decided to pick up a bottle of it to try out.

On to my third favourite for the month of May and its this Lipfinity Kit from Max Factor. 
I got given this in a goody bag a few months ago and because we are now in summer it is the ideal time to wear this shade on the lips thanks to its Peach shade. This is an amazing lip kit as it has a step 1 and step 2 to it. where you apply the shade to the lips and then you put on a clear moisture topcoat which keeps the shade on your lips for longer. 
I have been using this lip-kit throughout the whole month of May as the shade is ideal for these summery months. I love how it lasts on your lips for longer thanks to its top coat.

Hello my Lovelies,

Welcome to today's post, i hope you are all having a lovely Tuesday so far. For today's post i'm going to be sharing with you all my April Favourites post.

CARINO 'SENSATIONS' COLOUR SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER 

My first favourite for the month of April is this Carino 'Sensations' Colour Hair Shampoo and Conditioner. I am forever changing Shampoo's/Conditioner's as i'm never happy with the quality of the product as i am alway's buying more expensive products. So on a recent trip to Aldi's i picked up this Carion 'Sensations' Shampoo and Conditioner to try out. Both these products remind me of the Herbel and Essence range as it leaves my hair smelling gorgeous.

I have been using this for around three weeks now and my hair is feeling a lot softer and smells amazing. It works with every strand of hair and leaves it feeling not only soft but looking a lot more healthier. And with it only been €1.49 each even the price is making me smile :-)

Price: €1.49 each

TRUE ORGANIC OF SWEDEN 'ALL YOU NEED IS ME' BALM

Next up is this 'All you need is me' Balm from True Organic of Sweden. I received this in January's Glossybox and i have only recently started using it now. With it been a multi-purpose balm. 
I love using this on the really dry areas of my body such as my elbows, knees and heels, i even love to apply a small amount on my lips just before i apply my favourite lipstick. I also use on my cuticles too as this makes them a lot softer. Altogether i love using this balm as it really is a multi-tasker when it comes to dry skin. Since using it the dryer areas of my skin feels a lot more softer.

Score: 9/10


P.S CUCUMBER EYE PADS

Each pad has a natural blend of mulberry, liquorice and green tea to revive and brighten skin around the eyes. They also make the under eyes feel a lot more fresher especially after a hard working day where the eyes become tired and dry.

Shop: Penney's
Score: 9/10


UTAN & TONE NOURISHING NIGHT CREME

Next up is this Utan & Tone Nourishing Night Creme which has a built in gradual tan which adds a gorgeous glow to your face. I have recently started using this cream at night to help build a gradual tan on my skin. As we are now in Summer its the perfect time to add a little glow to the skin, especially on the face as this is an area of body i don't let the sun get at.
This clever concoction combines all you need for a night cream such as its thick hydrating hyaluronic acid, a cocktail of Vitamins and a potent Anti-oxidants to help skin repair along with its golden colour that you would expect from a gradual tan. I love using this before going to bed and awakening with a glowing effect on my skin each morning.

I'm a huge lover of moisturisers as i love to use them on my skin as soon as i get out of the shower or bath. It immediately moisturises the skin in seconds. The moisturiser itself is a combination of cocoa extract, aloe vera and argan oil which leaves my skin feeling incredible soft and very smooth, plus it also leaves it smelling gorgeous to.

Price: €2.99
Shop: Aldi 
Score: 10/10


OOLUTION 'EYE LOVE' EYE CONTOUR

My last favourite for the month of April is this Eye Contour from Oolution. I love using this underneath my eyes especially when they are feeling tiered and dry. It simply makes my eyes feeling fresher and look a lot brighter. 
It also reduces dark circles and any puffiness under my eye too .ie bags!! Even with its stimulating collagen synthesis, it reduces wrinkles that start forming first around the eyes. Also with its moisturising and lifting actions it prevents the transformation of lines due to dehydration into more profound wrinkles. I love to use this product first thing in the morning and then again when going to bed.

REVIEW: SILICONE SPONGES!!

Hi Everyone,

Happy Thursday to you all, i hope you are all having a lovely day so far. 

For today's post i'm going to be sharing with you all my review on the Silicone Sponges i picked up in Penney's (Primark) a few weeks back.

Silicone Sponges are the new beauty craze with them been the perfect make-up tool to apply your foundation/concealer with. The Silicone Sponges are made up of silicone which allow you to blend your foundation or concealer a lot more easier.
The Silicone Sponges are also ideal for using on the skin which give full coverage and a leave flawless finish to your face after applying your favourite foundation.

Personally since using these Sponges i love using them, they blend my foundation and concealer brilliantly leaving my makeup looking flawless along with full coverage. In the past i have used Beauty Blenders but i feel that they just soak up the product and doesn't leave my skin looking 100 per cent flawless. 
What i love about the Silicone Sponge is that they are a lot more easier to clean then the Beauty Blender, you can simply rinse under cold/warm water and its ready to use again. 

When applying my foundation using the Silicone Sponge, i like to add a small amount of Foundation to the top-part of the sponge, i really feel a little can go a long way. 
I then apply it to the different sections of my face such as my fore-head, cheeks, chin and neck area, i then start to blend the foundation into my skin which takes seconds using this sponge as it doesn't soak up the product.

For my Concealer i love to start off by applying it to the underneath of my eyes, my forehead, nose and chin area, i then i gently blend it using the sponge.
All together these Silicone Sponges are brilliant to use, they blend so easily without any effort and they also don't soak up the product which is a huge bonus. I also love the feel of them on the skin, they are really smooth and soft, and they don't feel really rough on the skin when applying your foundation. 

For anyone that hasn't tried out these Silicone Sponges yet, i would defiantly recommend you do as they are just amazing, i don't think i will ever go back to using a beauty blender as these sponges do there job so much better and your skin looks 100 per cent flawless everytime!!!
I hope you guys enjoyed my review on the Silicone Sponges.
