River Island navy stripe tshirt £4 (sale)

I think this is the first post I've done on clothes I've bought for Aiden but i just had to share these items as they're just so cute and I love the fact i can buy River Island stuff for him now hehe. Frustratingly i couldn't find links to all the items i bought but all the items from H&M wasn't in the sale so you should be able to find them in store and i would imagine they will be on their website soon. 

I picked up the skull shirt in a size bigger as i think it will look really nice un-buttoned over a t-shirt as a light weight jacket when it starts getting a little warmer. Even though all the items from River Island was in the sale (bonus) now that I've seen the quality and fit i will buy Aiden more from their. I love H&M jeans as they have an adjustable waist and are amazing quality, it also means i can get them in a longer leg and turn them up so they last his growth spurts longer haha.

Review // L'Oreal True Match Foundation

L'Oreal true match foundation £9.99

Foundations are a product in make-up that i really like to try, as in i don't really stick to one i normally like to try different brands and types. I think there's something especially with foundation that draws us in so we'll buy several different brands even though we're getting it in the same shade haha. I actually picked this foundation up as i had a tan and my current foundation was too light so i thought i would give it a try. To my shock i instantly fell in love so much i bought another one in the shade lighter so i could wear this foundation with or without a tan. 

The packaging is simple and i just find it works for me, i like the bottle shape and unlike the American version it comes with a nice silver pump. The formula of the foundation is rather runny, which at first thoughts slightly concerned me as i thought it would be a little wishy washy and not have good coverage. However i find it has quite a medium coverage and in fact hides all my imperfections such as my rosacea with ease, i even find myself needing less concealer for my dark under eye circles and all this with just one pump. Even though it has great coverage it doesn't look cakey and has a slight dewy finish, which is what i prefer.

I have applied this foundation with a buffing brush, cosmetic sponge and it blends effortlessly with both, i have also mixed it with my moisturiser which works perfectly if you want a slightly lighter finish or if you have some troublesome dry skin areas. The formula is nice as it feels really lightweight and leaves my skin feeling soft, i also find it wears nicely on my skin and lasts really well throughout the day. 

 There are lots of shades to chose from (even though it's a drugstore foundation) so it is a lot easier to find a shade that matches you well, i have shade N1 Ivory and for when i have fake tan N2 Vanilla and they match me perfectly. Out of all the foundations I've tried i have to admit this by far is my favourite and it wouldn't surprise me if it turns into a holy grail product and one I'll repurchase over and over.

6. River Island beige leopard print suitcase £65

I am currently lusting over bags so much lately i thought i would dedicate a whole post on just a few of them, i mean what girl doesn't lust over beautiful bags right? A lot of brands spring/summer collection are amazing, clearly so much so i had to include both of River Islands scarf tote bags as i can't decide between them. I think the Topshop backpack would look cute for days out with my little one, practical yet stylish and seem as i normally get lumbered with his cars one why not just have my own. The suite case i have mainly chosen for college, random yes but as I'm doing beauty therapy at times i carry a lot with me so why not look good whilst doing so! 

What bag is your favourite?
