J.W. Anderson x Diet Coke Collection *


Before I set off for my bank holiday weekend away to Torquay , Mr Postman delivered a little package; inside was a tote bag & 2 Diet Coke bottles from there latest collaboration collection.

Following in the footsteps of major luxury fashion designers such as Marc Jacobs, Jean Paul Gaultier & Karl Lagerfield  is none other than Jonathan Anderson. The exclusively designed bottles are heavily influenced by J.W. Anderson Autumn/Winter 2015 Knitwear collection colours of striking red & blue and grey & pink, . Also for the first time Diet coke have incorporated the use of  photography within the iconic bottle design.
This collaboration is important as it is part of Diet Coke's 'Regret Nothing' campaign which aims to empower and inspire women to embrace their implusive side (living with no regrets) whether its in the form of career, friendship, love or fashion.
Now I have to admit, I have been a coke bottle collector for over 5 years, though my collection is currently in storage (so I can't show you pictures). Although, I am tempted to take a sip from the collection bottles, I can't bring myself to open the boldly designed bottles; as I would feel as though I have gone behind the back of my other coke bottles , so for now I will have to purchase a normal bottle of diet coke,  if I feel tempted to open them!

The limited edition bottles retail for £1.95 each, also featured within the full collection are T-shirts and the tote bag including a limited-edition collector's gift box set for £29.95- featuring 2 x JW Anderson's Diet Coke bottles and a premium notebook  which are all currently available from  Harvey Nichols stores nationwide.

Will you be getting a piece of the Diet Coke x J.W. Anderson collection?

Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Spray Moisturizer *


Last week, I received the Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Spray Moisturiser in the mail. I have been wanting to try this moisturiser since it's release as the idea of lotion in a can , really appealed to me.  I must admit I tend to be a bit lazy with moisturing my body; if I know certain parts will be concealed by my outfit (Yes, I know, Bad beauty blogger).

The continuous spray top system applicator, is so easy and quick to use. The actual moisturiser formula is very lightweight as they have included micro-droplets of Vaseline Jelly,  which allows the lotion to instantly absorb into the skin in seconds to ensure it is hydrated and soft to touch. This is great for the summer months as it  which cuts out the effort of a thick cream which can take a while to rub into the skin. As it is non greasy, it is the perfect option for those who have normal/oily skin because it will not leave you feeling sticky after application.

Importantly,  the use of Aloe Vera and it's healing properties allows it to be a slight after-sun spray to cool skin areas which may be tight or dry. The fragrance is really light and not overpowering, although does remind me a bit of a refreshing cucumber scent.  The Vaseline Spray Moisturiser retails for £4.99/190ml and is available in major retailers such as Superdrug & Boots Stores.

It is definitely a must-have skincare essential to pop in a bag whether you are out & on the go or if your just in need of a quick moisture boost!
 
Peace, Love & Besos

Primark Satin Floral Platform Shoes

Despite being stuck in the middle of revising for five exams in May , I felt it was necessary to come off my blog hiatus this once and share my recent primark bargain, due to the influx of attention  , i've received after posting it on Instagram. ( 2000 + likes)

I picked up these Floral print satin platform sandals recently from the Sheffield Meadowhall store and it was love at first sight. They had a limited amount of stock (1 row to be exact) ,and only one pair in my size , which unfortunately had a minor stain .  After asking the store assistant if they had anymore, I was told i wasn't in luck. Although I was gutted, I decided not to wait for the following weeks batch of deliveries,  and instead requested a discount as I knew i could work on removing the stain myself . Luckily,  I was offered 10% off and knew it was fate to purchase before someone else snapped them up.

They are the ultimate accessory to add a touch of  feminity and statement to an outfit. They're very comfy and easy to walk in due to the chunky heel and platform. I love how these could be glammed up with an all white or black outfit to add subtle colour or toned down with a simple tee and jeans combo.

I think these could potentially even become my graduation shoes (provided i pass 3rd year).They retail for £14, but due to the 10% discount I paid £12.60.  If your Primark store is not lucky to stock these beautiful shoes , then ASOS have a similar pair in a darker print here .

Do you love the power flower trend & will you be wearing it this summer season?
