Hello, and a huge warm welcome to my blog! My name’s Charlotte Jayne Jackson and I’m currently based in Shropshire, England. The main focus of my blog is fashion, food and adventures so if that sounds great to you stick around, take a look, and enjoy! ~ x
Heya guys, I have something a bit different today!
My mom recently ordered me some BFF serum for both my face and eyes as a gift as I’ve been looking for a tinted moisturiser/ bb cream for a while.
Usually I wear a full face of make-up with foundation and concealer but I wanted something much lighter and natural for when I’m just at home or having a relaxing day with my boyfriend~
I really don’t have bad skin in all honestly but because I’m a red head I have a very pale complexion, meaning that I get very bad dark circles. It usually gets better when I got in the sun but because of the many lockdowns I have barely been outside and my complexion has gotten so much worse.
Therefore, a light coverage which I can quickly put on without brushes under my eyes and on my face (paired with filling in my eyebrows of course as they are very light otherwise!) is something I want to start trying. I want to look more natural and fresh! Haha.
So, as I was saying my mom decided to buy me a BFF cream and eye serum from Trinny London. It’s quite pricey but when I put it on my hand the coverage looked sooo good, even though it’s only light.
It came in beautiful sliver holographic packaging (LOVE), and the product tubes themselves have lovely holographic lids that just pull off easily. From the photos I’ve added you can see that there is also a third product. The serums came with a free mixing pot which I’m excited about as I LOVE to mix my eyeshadows, foundations, blushes etc.
I’m excited to use Trinny London as I never have before! I’ll post another blog update soon with a before and after of using the products 🙂
For Christmas this year I decided to invest in a proper winter coat. I owned many coats and jackets but I did not own one that was suitable for really cold weather… which is problematic when you live in a place with cold, damp winters.
I ended up choosing this beautiful white puffer coat from Zara. A size small (S) fits me great and it’s ever so warm :).
It’s fleece lined making it soft and cozy, but most importantly, it’s NOT made with down.
So many winter puffers are made with duck feathers and I wanted to find something gorgeous and suitable for the bitter cold that was also cruelty free!
I was definitely successful. This coat is suitable in temperatures -5C to -20C so perfect for winter breaks away (skiing!) or cold bonfire nights.
The pockets are lined and there are even straps in the back to stop the coat from falling off you as it’s quite heavy.
I love styling it with a turtle neck, some jeans, ankle boots/ snow boots, and a little black cross body bag.
Thanks for reading and thank you to all the people who have followed my blog recently ❤
Good morning everyone, I hope you are having a great week and keeping healthy if you are in Lockdown!
I want to write a post about this White cardigan I recently purchased from Missguided (as I pretty much live in it haha!).
I think like a lot of people during COVID I’ve bought ALOT of lounge wear, wayyy more than I usually would, this year because we can’t go anywhere but our living rooms…
This cardigan is perfect for lounging around the house. It’s oversized, ties at the waist, is soft and wearable. I LOVEEE it!
I like to style it with black leggings or cycle shorts with fluffy slippers and a t-shirt <3. The sleeves are extra large also, giving you that feeling like your are slightly wrapped in a blanket haha.
One of my favourite (and I mean FAVOURITE) pieces to wear this winter has been this white turtleneck/ roll neck jumper from Topshop.
It’s very soft, knitted and definitely keeps me warm in the cold winter tucked into a pair of dark jeans/leggings and layered with a coat 🙂
I wear a UK size small (S) and LOVE to style it with the little black bag you can see above ^. A small on me is quite loose but not oversized so I would size up for less fitted look. The fit around the shoulders is baggy, but more tapered in the arm, making it fit great in a coat!!
(I got this jumper while Topshop was still independent, so now to buy it you have to got through ASOS.)
Happy New year and I hope, if you are reading this, you are well!! 🙂
On the 18th of January I celebrated my 24th birthday with my family in England’s THIRD national lockdown…
I had planned to have a party last year but decided against it because of my Master’s degree being very demanding at the time and thought I would have one this year instead 😂. That obviously did NOT go as planned and so a little family celebration it had to be!
It was lovely in all honesty. We had a buffet, cake, cards, gifts, and a close friend even sent me a little surprise balloon.
I hope eventually I’ll be able to celebrate properly with friends, but I’m not holding my breath haha.
I hope 24 ends up being an exciting year. It’s hard having to stay in every day, never really achieving anything or moving forward. I want to turn 25 having done something I’m proud of.
