So, it’s a new year and my online resolution is to blog at least three times a month!
With the hype of Christmas taking over my blog came to a halt – which is a shame because it’s a time when I have had plenty to write about!
So I’m going to start off my blogging year with a fashion/beauty blog.
In my previous post, I mentioned I was trying out some Xen-Tan tanning products. I used the medium face tanner Luxe, and I was quite nervous about putting fake tan on my face! If it went wrong it would be difficult to hide but I was really impressed with it; it gave a natural glow and lasted for about a week. I also used the Xen-Tan Deep Bronze Luxe, the formula was quite thick which surprised me, however, this become a good factor as you can see where you have applied it. When using previous self tanners I have used disposable gloves for application, however, when using them with Xen-Tan and then without I preferred the finished result without using the gloves -it appeared more natural and even. I have only used it twice so far, so I really need to try it out some more and my pale skin sure needs it!
A new thing I have tried out is dress renting, from Girl Meets Dress, and I’m so pleased that I did! I hired a dress from them at the weekend for a black tie event; they offer many styles and designers at various prices. I opted for a Gorgeous Couture, red maxi complete with a diamond belt. I teamed it with a cream clutch and cream shoes, which both also have small diamond detail, as well as a shawl to brave the cold. I was really happy with the look, and the dress was perfect for the occasion.
The dress I hired was £69 for a two-day rental, but they also offer the option of having a seven-day rental for not much to the cost. I didn’t have enough time, but other options are available such as trying the dress on in advance or ordering a number of dresses and sending the ones back which aren’t suitable.
If you’re like me, then once you have worn a ‘posh’ dress and been snapped in it, you probably won’t wear it again. The next big event you go to you will want to wear a completely new dress; renting is ideal for this! Getting to wear designer at a fraction of the price is also obviously a lovely bonus! I will definitely be ordering from them again! Find out more on their website www.girlmeetsdress.com
January seems such a long month, with not much going on. I can’t wait for it to be over and for someone to give me another excuse to hire a dress!
