Check Out These Key Spring/Summer 2019 Trends You Can Buy In The Sales

Hey Lovelies!

With the commencement of 2019 well underway, it’s time to check out the key trends for S/S 2019. Before you rush out to buy some skinny jeans in the January sales, check out what’s going to a fashion hit this year and grab yourself some spring/summer fashion items at a bargain price. A top tip is to look for items of colour (especially beige varieties and pastels), the boho style, suits and wide legged trousers (all set to be key fashion trends this year)).

1.Above-Knee Split Skinny Jeans: Blue Sinner High Waisted Side Split Skinny Jeans, £11 (Was £28), www.missguided.co.uk

Whilst there appears to be no end in sight for the skinny jeans trend, 2019’s look will encompass the above-the-knee or higher split rip. Should you wish to God not to have to squeeze into another pair as long as you live, you will be pleased to know that flares will still have a huge place. Phew!

2.Sequins: 2 In 1 Chiffon Top Sequin Skirt Bodycon Dress, £26.25 (Was £32), www.boohoo.com

The party season may have come and gone (sadly), but (love them or hate them)), sequins are set to stay. Make a statement in this gorgeous 2-in-1 bodycon dress which is so on-trend and will remain so for the foreseeable.

3.Zebra Print: Zebra Print Tote Bag, £11.19 (Was £15.99), www.newlook.com

Animal print has been just about everywhere (to the point where I’m wondering whether we are all in fact about to embark upon safari). I’m not a huge lover of this trend, but it’s going nowhere. This year leopard print will remain solid, but there’s a new animal in town and it’s the zebra. If, like me, you are not a massive fan, why not simply nod to the trend by way of a sassy tote such as this one you can pick up in the sales?

4.Floral: Floral Print Random Self Tie Cami Dress, £8.99, www.shein.co.uk

Now this is a trend I can get on-board with. Channelling my inner hippie, I am all about the flower-power vibe – and there’s nothing better than the sun shining on a beautiful floral dress to make you feel good. Versace is so right! Big bold statement prints are going to be a hit so why not dazzle in this gorgeous dress by Shein – and only £8.99. #Happydays.

5.Western Boots: Freya Stitch Detail Cowboy Boots, £20 (Was £35) Boohoo.com

There’s something truly awesome about cowboy boots (every time I buy some I feel like I should definitely be living the cowgirl dream in America). Oh well, I will have to settle for wearing some cool boots for now – and there is nothing better than a pair of these little gems. Team them with a floral dress (see above). #Lovethesales. #Lovingthetrend!

6.Satin and Lace Trends: Asos Design Tailored Occasion Satin Single Breasted Blazer, £38.50 (Was £55), www.asos.com

I am so happy that lace and satin are two key material trends for spring/summer. They instantly transform your look into one of sexy sassiness and they feel SO GOOD! Satin and suits are going to be massive this season, so now that I have found this I will be looking for the satin trousers – and my life will be complete!

What are your favourite SS 2019 trends? Have you bought any bargains? Let me know in the comments below and have a happy Friday! xx

Best Post-Party Hacks To Look As If You’ve Actually Had Some Sleep

Finally, party season is here – which means dancing, fun…and a lack of sleep. Make sure you look as fresh as a daisy with the best makeup hacks. These tips will ensure you look like you have actually slept more than 4 hours (but sadly, they won’t help you function any better – multiple strong coffees until you can get to your bed will deal with this).

1.Highlighter

Apply your highlighter generously around the eye area, paying particular attention to the inner and outer corners of the eyes, and upper brow bone too. Furthermore, add a little to the area at the outer side of your eye to give a lifted effect. I love Charlotte Tilbury’s Hollywood Beauty Wand, £27, www.charlottetilbury.com

2.Curl Those Lashes

A top trick for opening up the eyes instantly is to use an eyelash curler. This works miracles.

3.De-Puff The Bags

Eye bags the size of hammocks are kind of a giveaway to your previous night’s antics. Avoid the comments/looks/questions by quickly erasing the bags, dark circles and puffy ‘I haven’t slept in a week’ look. The best product I know of for a quick fix after a late night is Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Pure Retinol Express Smoothing Eye Mask, £60 (Pack of 12), www.johnlewis.com

Once you try these under-eye masks they will become your post-party skin saviour. Drenched in a retinol-based formula, these patches (allegedly loved by Kim Kardashian) instantly plump the skin, erasing any evidence of dryness and lines (temporarily of course – but long enough to get through your day shift)).

4.Colour Corrector And Hydrating Concealer

Firstly, address any dark circles with a colour corrector and then apply your concealer – but make sure it is a hydrating concealer. An ordinary concealer may make the situation worse as it can cause a cakey effect so close to the eye area, thus emphasizing any bags/lines instead. We don’t want that, so opt for a good product such as Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, £24, www.feelunique.com

5.Illuminate

Add a drop of illuminator to your foundation to brighten your overall look, detracting from tired skin. Iconic London’s Illuminator is totally dreamy, £32.99, www.cultbeauty.co.uk

6.Neutral Shades And Eye Drops

When you are absolutely shattered it is best to stick to neutral eyeshadows and lips, so that you do not draw attention to any sleep-deprived imperfections. Lastly, don’t forget the eye drops – these are always a Godsend!

Happy partying people xx
