My Scarlett Heart

I don't really do preppy I'm more of a, could I get one more wear out of my favourite t-shirt before having to wash it  kind of girl. Every now and than I like to mix it up a little, so when the lovely Charlotte sent me this beauty of a bow necklace I thought perfect! Charlotte is the beauty (check out her Instagram shes a babe) behind Scarlett hearts, a place on the interweb filled with cute jewellery to excite your eyeballs. I adore this tea party brooch and these Hamsa necklaces are my personal fave. I love this ombre jumper from F&F and I think the bow necklace, gives me my version of preppy. I'm still a grunge betty at heart, so dressed it down with jeans and buckle boots

I've starting using old lady cream, other know as moisturiser ....Okay not really old lady product any more. I'd actual say 50% of girls buying cream are under 30. I could be wrong about this, but the more I speak to women older they don't seem as hardcore about their skin care. Note that when I say women I mean woman more like my mum, who has always just washed her face with soap and used zero else. Saying this yes she has lines, but she certainly doesn't look like she's heading towards her 60s (she's going to be 58 this month). I can only hope I look as good, minus her awful fashion sense - Don't feel bad, I always shop for her now 'be gone crocs'. I think it's the weather, but my skin is like a leaf that's been in the sun to long. So I'm slapping it on, if anyone has been using any amazing ones I would love to know.

Have you got any recommendation for dry (spotty) skin? 


  1. I'm really loving this look Laura, F&F's range at the moment really is amazing. They're funky jumpers are great and i've bought 3 tops from there in the last week! The bow necklace makes this preppy look so cute, so different to the usual preppy looks too, you look fab :) xx

  2. I adore the combination of the jumper and the bow. So cute! Hair looks gorgeous as always! X

  3. Freaking out over that amazing jumper/bow combo - so cute!!!! xx

  4. you look flipping stunning in this post laura. your make-up is bloody gorgeous. xx

  5. love the outfit! if you're looking for a hydrating (but not greasy) moisturiser you should check out antipodes vanilla pod cream or old henriksen's vitamin cream, they're both beautiful :) oh, and use hydraluron underneath and a facial oil once/twice a week, makes such a huge difference to dry skin :)

  6. This is SUCH a cute look!

    I've actually used moisturiser since about the age of 15, and always used quite rich stuff as I have dry skin. My boyfriend has dry-spotty skin though and the Clean & Clear mosturiser works really well for him!

  7. Another very pretty outfit. I really like the added cuteness the bow brings.

  8. I have so much ombre love for this outfit, such pretty pastels!

    The Style Rawr!

  9. Omg love your hair it looks sooo cool!!

  10. I very much enjoy this outfit! I recently started using Caudalie's SOS Thirst Quenching Serum before my moisturizer (usually the Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet) and it really makes all the difference! My face feels so much smoother and more hydrated!
