My go-to products for completing a look


I find that these products and accessories are such a simple solution to giving an outfit or look a little lift when I feel as though something is missing or just isn't quite right. They are my ultimate go-to products and although they may not be necessary for daily use, I feel like I would be lost without them. There has been so many occasions where I have either been wearing a bit of a boring outfit, not feeling confident about my makeup or my hair just hasn't been sitting right and these things were there for me to save the day.

1. Maria Nila Finishing Spray.  I can honestly say that this is by far the best hairspray I have owned or even used in my life. Firstly, it has the perfect amount of hold and the less you use, the more effective it is. Never have I found the phrase 'less is more' to be so true. Secondly, the smell. Oh my goodness, the smell is amazing, if it came as a perfume I would probably buy it. Thirdly, it is free from sulphates and parabens (whatever they are) which I'm sure can only be a good thing! The fact that it's 100% vegan and it comes in a cute can are just bonuses.

2. Hoop earrings. These simple silver hoop earrings were very cheap from H&M and came with a few different sizes. If you have sensitive ears then there are plenty of higher quality options available and different colours (gold, rose gold), silver is just my personal preference. But my point is that they are such a simple way of lifting a look, or adding just a little bit of sass.

3. Victor and Rolf Bon Bon. This is a very sweet and maybe young fragrance but I absolutely love it. The heavier, musky fragrances just aren't for me. I will admit that I use a cheaper fragrance, Zara Black, for every-day use but I feel that having a more luxurious perfume to hand adds just a little bit extra.

4. Kartel watch. This is such a classy watch that literally goes with any outfit. I often find that watches look clumpy or just hang off my unusually small wrists, but this watch is the perfect size and look for me as it is so simple and elegant. A nice watch is such an easy thing to add to a look that looks a little boring and I find that it is so effective in adding a bit of texture.

5. Bare Minerals Mineral Veil. This finishing powder is so good for taking any un-wanted shine away from your face. It is so light that you can't even tell its there and it makes your makeup last so much longer without blocking up your pores which I find that many powders do. I also love that it isn't coloured or tinted but when I wear it, I feel like my skin is that little bit more polished and glowing.

6. Little Black Bag. This bag carries just what I need, it is the perfect size to fit everything I want but still looks small and elegant. It is also perfect for me as it has a hidden zip which is good as I am a total liability for loosing things. This is my go-to bag for completing a look as it goes with pretty much anything and I think it's also just a pretty cute accessory.

  1. Being a mom, I always feel like I'm in mom gear. I definitely think the mom look can use some pick me up and these sound like great ideas. I know I try to put on a little make up and even a pair of earrings to make the mom look more dressed up, even for the grocery.
