Boots and Watches

I’m a die hard boots fan, flat boots, heeled boots, chunky boots, platform boots you name it and I’m there. I’m going to show you my favourite pairs of boots and why I love them so much, sorry, but they’re all black!

The first are these chunky sock boots from River Island, the shape and curve of these boots is really unique. I find these really comfortable as well as a really nice staple to a boring outfit, my mum always tells me that I need to stop buying black boots but hey, black goes with everything! I have to admit that black shoes are always easy to throw on and you don’t have to think about them matching, I choose the easy route.

These are the newest addition to my collection and they are drop dead gorgeous! They stretch over the knee with strings to keep the top in place, I hate knee high boots that aren’t tie back because they tend to slip down when you take a few steps. These beauties are from BooHoo and were a steal for £35.99 (brb I’m tearing up)

If a pair of boots were to be a badass boss lady, this would be them. This pair are from River Island, although they are old season so I’m not sure if they’re still available, but they could be on sale! Sock boots blew up during AW16 and I can understand why, they look effortless gorgeous underneath a pair of cropped cigarette jeans and the thick sturdy heel with the squared toe of these babies makes them the definition of chic.

Next we have the watch section of this blog post. Watches are a classic, simple way to spruce up an outfit instantly.

Firstly is this marble beauty that I had from my very kind boyfriend for christmas last year, it’s by a brand called Lola Rose which I had never heard of before until I nearly shed a tear when I saw it in a shop window. It’s marble face and rose gold trim create this beautifully detailed, simplistic watch that complements any wrist.

IMG_1074.JPGI was lucky enough to have had a second watch for christmas from my mum and step dad, I clocked this one in Bristol airport on the way to Portugal (sorry for my terrible puns) but I was saving in time for Christmas at that point. Luckily my mum knew that I had my eye on it and here it is, designed by Swatch this watch is so unusual, it has one of the most beautiful faces that I’ve seen but despite the delicate details the strap is silicone and it has quite a heavy overall appearance. I love this watch, its to bloody die for.

Last, but certainly not least is this Rotary piece that I had for my 18th birthday, it’s so dainty but has a lovely weight to it. It has glow in the dark hands and time points as well as  a date timer.

What Could Be Causing You To Breakout

Breakouts, aren’t they just the worst? When you breakout you probably think its mother nature come early or you had one too many sweets, sometimes that isn’t the case. This post will walk you through some of the things that could be breaking you out.

  1. Pillow Cases

I know what you’re thinking, “what, pillow cases?” On average most people change their bed once every two weeks, and every night you rest your face on the same pillow over and over again until you wash them. Think of the times where you’ve fallen asleep with your make up on, moisturised your face, or even fallen asleep drooling as we all do, all those factors build up throughout the days and all the built up dirt starts to clog your pores and latch onto your face. Try changing your pillow case every 3/4 days or even just flip it over to the other side!

2. Using Body Products on Your Face

You know those times where you’re rushing to shower and you skip the face wash and just lather some body wash on your face? Wah wah! When using body products on your face even once in a while as a last resort, the ingredients are far too harsh for the delicate skin on your face hence then causing spots to surface. Instead spare a couple of seconds to take care of your skin with products meant for your face.

3. Over Exfoliating

This one is quite self explanatory, exfoliating leaves your face looking fresh and new but doing it more than 3 times a week can cause your skin to freak out and raise breakout hell!

4. Dirty Hair

I raise my hand to admit that I pretty much only wash my hair once a week (I shower everyday of course!) this is mainly because of my mission to grow my hair, but that aside, when your hair is dirty and the strands brush against your face it can cause breakouts around the perimeter of your face.

5. Gone Off Make-Up

You know that bottle of foundation you bought two years ago but then y0u found a new one, and then the new one ran out so you had to resort to your old one? Well this can cause HUGE breakouts, if you never knew foundation had an expiry date you can find it on the back, the average time for a bottle of foundation is 12 months and if you use it passed its date your skin really doesn’t like it!

I hope you found some tips you never knew about today and enjoyed reading the post, don’t forget to follow my Instagram to stay up to date with me! @ashleighchivers

Welcome

Hey! It feels so weird getting back to blogging again, we haven’t met, I’m Ashleigh! I’m a student attending university and studying a degree in Graphic Design, as well as being a health freak I’ve always had a love for fashion and beauty, especially since leaving secondary school. For the past year/two years I’ve always taken great pride in taking good pictures of outfits, make up looks and food and uploading them to my Instagram.

Although the pictures were fulfilling I felt that I couldn’t talk to the full capacity about what I was posting (need I mention that I REALLY love to talk) so I’ve decided  to get back to blogging. I started a blog a while back but struggled to keep up and didn’t find that I had gotten fully into my passions, but I’m back and it feels amazing! I hope you enjoy my blog and find all my content as informative and fun as I hope that it will be!
