Hey guys!

Zaful was kind enough to send me some items to review so I’ll be sharing them with you today! It’s basically an entire outfit for less than 50USD so definitely worth checking out!

  1. Vintage Camouflage Jacket ($24 or £19)fullsizerender-16 img_3872The jacket is really soft and comfortable and comfortably oversized! I love the distressed front and the flowers that were added to the camouflage pattern!
  2. Velvet Dress ($14.50 or £12)img_3914 img_3899This dress has basically become my favourite thing ever!! It’s quite warm and decently thick, and it has pockets!!!!! It’s so comfortable to lounge in and looks super cute paired with doc martens! (It comes in 3 colours and I want them allllll)
  3. Eagle Claw Ring  ($1.37 or £1.10)img_3941The ring is super quirky and I love that it’s a claw. It doesn’t feel like it’s a cheap material (I get allergic reactions to things really quickly and I’ve been wearing the ring all the time!)
  4. Wrap Necklace ($1.82 or £1.46)I didn’t manage to take a picture with the necklace, but I really love it and I’m going to bring it along with me when I go to Leeds this weekend (so hopefully you’ll get a pic then!)

I got everything pretty quickly, I was told that it would take almost 10-15 business days with a few days for the order to process but I got it within two weeks! I got the dress & 2 accessories in one package (they were dispatched first) and then the jacket in another! You only pay for postage once so it’s really great that they send everything to you as soon as they can even if it means splitting it up!

In terms of quality, everything was pretty decent (especially for the price), nothing felt cheap or bad quality and their customer service was great! I sent lots of emails for the collaboration and got really quick replies!

Anyways, if you’re interested in checking Zaful out (which I definitely think you should!) here are the links below! Retailmenot has loads of voucher codes so definitely worth checking before paying!

Hey guys!

Sorry for the unbelievably long gap between posts, I’ve been ill for the last week or so and just been stuck in bed feeling completely awful (curse you viral flu). I’m feeling vaguely better so I thought I’d do a little post about this great beauty website I’ve been working with!

4 You By You is a Student Focused Unisex Beauty Website run by a student at Manchester Metropolitan University who created the website during his placement year. This is a really student-focused website, so basically it focuses on offering established beauty products to students for student prices as well as offering other ways in supporting students (such as by providing opportunities to work with their student unions!)

Besides having a huge range of great beauty products (from make up to hair care to skin care and brushes) and links to possible job opportunities, the website also has things like tips & tricks – ‘how to survive freshers’, ‘money saving tips’ and many other posts which are really useful for university students!

Of course, the brand understands the need to focus on beauty lovers (and not just students), so besides the great discount codes they already have on the website for each individual university (you can check those out, as well as more information about working with your student unions here), you can use the discount code ‘ElectricConcept’ to get either 20% off or a Gift With Purchase Worth £5 on most products.

You can check out all of 4 you by you’s social media accounts below and you should definitely check out their website (I’m going back to reading their great tips & tricks page once I’ve posted this!)

Hey there!

I’ve got a new review for you guys today! I’ve recently been in contact with Vape Shoreditch and they sent me a vape kit & some e-liquid to review for you guys! (Read till the end for an exclusive 90% discount off your first box!)

Vaping is supported by the UK government, NHS and cancer charities (NHS Stop Smoking Services proactively welcome anyone who wants to use these devices as part of their quit attempt!). Every smoker you convince to try vaping instead, you are helping to save lives. Vaping has been found to be up to 95% less harmful than smoking and has also been found to help smokers quit! (you can read the full UK Gov report here).

I know that this is something different but according to studies up to 50% of the population don’t know that e-cigarettes are less harmful than smoking so I feel that it’s important for people to be well informed so they can make good decisions! Moreover, the effects of smoking can be really devastating (I’ve personally lost loved ones to lung cancer) so I’m for anything that could help a smoker quit.
Okay but enough of the naggy ‘stop smoking kids’ lecture, let’s talk about Vape Shoreditch! The kit I got included a Shoreditch Two vape pen kit as well as three bottles of e-liquid.

I’ve never used/set up a vape pen before but the Shoreditch Two vape pen is really easy to set up and charge! Not only does it come with a certificate of inspection (cos you always wanna know your stuff’s working right), there’s a guide with really helpful diagrams to help you get started.

For those who’d like specifics, the Shoreditch Two is slimline and has a 380 mAh Battery (200 puffs), 1.5ml Tank and comes with a 1 Year Battery Warranty.

Now for the e-liquids! The e-liquid flavours come in three categories – tobacco, sweets and fruit, and I got one from each. I asked my friends (who are proper smokers, unlike me HAHA) to try these out so you could get a smoker’s point of view! I got all the liquids at 6mg nicotine strength (they also have them in 12mg and 18mg). Feedback on the peppermint chocolate is that it’s not too sweet and has a nice aftertaste (kind of like After Eight chocolates!)

Vape Shoreditch isn’t just an e-liquid store, it’s a monthly service. For £9.99 a month, you get 3 bottles posted to you via free 1st class delivery. You can pause or cancel your subscription at any time and you can even change your delivery dates and orders whenever you want!

If you use the code ‘NICOLEO4954’ at checkout, you can try three bottles of e-liquid for just 99p including p&p!! (Register for your 99p box here).

So you’re looking for a different way to stop smoking, vaping is an option you could consider!

Happy Wednesday!

Hey guys!

Now that it’s finally December, I’m getting really excited because it’s Christmas season! I think my favourite part of Christmas shopping is having an excuse to shop (and maybe buy things) for myself while looking for gifts for other people. Over the next few weeks I’m going to be doing posts on stocking fillers, gifts for him/her and just general Christmas wishlists and outfit ideas, but for now, I’m still holding back my spending after the Black Friday – Cyber Monday frenzy, so here are a few things from OASAP I would buy/will be buying once I have money!

  1. Navy Open Back Blouse Screen Shot 2015-12-02 at 9.14.20 pmI absolutely adore anything that is backless or has cute back detail. It’s been cold recently so little back details really give an edge to an otherwise warm & covered up outfit. I’d pair this top (or the next one) with a pair of jeans and a warm coat for a versatile evening outfit – you’ll be warm walking outside but still be able to show a little skin if you and your friends decide to go to a bar/club after dinner.
  2. Scoop Bow Back Tee
  3. Screen Shot 2015-12-02 at 9.25.34 pmFlouncy Hem SkirtScreen Shot 2015-12-02 at 9.31.23 pmI absolutely adore the hem of this skirt! The fitted skirt with a flouncy hem just reminds me of a mermaid’s tail.
  4. Striped Cardigan Screen Shot 2015-12-04 at 14.15.34Big slouchy cardigans are a must-have for lazy days, and the stripey pattern of this one really caught my eye!
  5. Lace Panel Blouse/Dress Screen Shot 2015-12-04 at 14.19.56 Screen Shot 2015-12-04 at 14.20.11I love clothes I can wear many ways, so I love this because you could wear it as a long blouse with skinny jeans, or as a short dress with ankle boots.
  6. Distressed Jeans Screen Shot 2015-12-04 at 14.21.41
    These distressed jeans come in both a light and dark wash, and I kind of want both?? I’ve never really been a jeans person so I only wear jeans if they’re distressed or have a cute design.
  7. Striped Shirt Dress Screen Shot 2015-12-04 at 14.22.36I’ve been obsessed with shirt dresses (and jumper dresses) recently, and also am always obsessed with stripes, so this meets all my requirements!
  8. Transparent Flower Necklace  Screen Shot 2015-12-04 at 14.20.29With the weather getting colder, I’ve just been wearing lots of sweaters or other plain (but warm) things, and this necklace is a cute way of dressing up outfits a little bit. I love the cute transparent flower detail.

How was your week? Have you gotten all your Black Friday – Cyber Monday parcels yet? I’ll be doing a post on my Black Friday Weekend haul soon, so keep your eyes peeled.

Thanks for reading xx
