Western S/S15

Hello again!

So lately I have been shooting in some really cool locations. I enjoy this way more; my imagination is always over flowing with so many ideas that I get for shoots and realistically they were never going to look great in my back garden(where I usually end up taking my photos). Obviously I won't always have time and £ to travel around and do this but  you will see a lot more themed posts just not too often, but i'm really excited to take my blog in this new editorial-esque direction!

I shot these photo's with my photographer friend Przemslaw Grabowski, we are very like minded creatively, and he is ridiculously skillful; taking and editing the photo's/film. We shot a few different locations which you will see very soon and also some filmed for my YouTube, it was such a fun day despite the rain. Bloggers if you are looking for a photographer to work with- He's your guy!

I'm loving the whole western theme at the moment and as I like classic pieces rather than really busy/over accessorized outfits so this skirt is perfect for me; I really love just stand out pieces that still give you that themed influence instead of a an outfit that is too busy looking. I got it from H&M and it was reasonably priced at only £24.99 so if you're looking for a cheaper alternative I would take a look at H&M. I always find their stuff really affordable yet the quality and the high fashion 'vibe' is still there.

I got this in a size 10 as I find with H&M their sizes do come up smaller, I did have to wriggle around a bit to get it on but this is most likely down to the fact I have a big badonkadonk and a small waist. It isn't elasticated and obviously I didn't force it on myself I just had to dance into it a bit! Once it's up though it is the perfect fit.

My hat is from Primark, honestly I love Primark I can't help it. I feel like I'm always expressing my love for it on here but their summer accessories are so good this year! I did feature this hat in my very first blog post actually, it's just a really cute Fedora hat and it was only £7 I think. It just spices up the outfit a bit and the contrast of the two tan colours really adds to the whole western influence of the outfit.

My shoes here are COVERED in mud as it was pouring it down all day, we were both absolutely soaked! But well worth it; I love seeing images and themes coming together! Also I think the rainy atmosphere really compliments the colours of the outfit.

Last off, my sunglasses are from New look, I tend to suit bigger frames so these round ones are perfect, these were £4.99 so really cheap and you could probably find this style almost anywhere now.









I hope you guys enjoyed this new twist in my blog theme, I'm super excited and I'm planning some really cool stuff so keep an eye out!

Magnitone Lucid

So Magnitone were kind enough to send me the Magnitone Lucid to review, and I must stress THIS IS NOT SPONSERED. All of these opinions are my own and based on my experience using the product.

If you are not familiar with Magnitone or what a Magnitone is, they are basically an electronic cleansing/exfoliation brush which is supposed to give you 'softer, brighter clearer' skin in just 7 days.

The brush is powered by active electromagnetic technology. It has enhanced electromagnetic pulsations that send rapid vibrations into you skin, which will help to unblock pores and get rid of any dead skin cells leaving your skin 'healthy and glowing'.

I've been using mine for just over 2 weeks now, when I first heard about the product/received it I did think hmm is this too good to be true, is this product legit or is it just a fancy brush? Being completely honest I really love it.

The first few days I did notice that my pores, blackheads etc (gross but yes everybody has them) had surfaced a lot after i'd used the product, they are usually so hard to spot/hidden. I was not and please do not be put off by this, this is actually a good thing and it means the brush is doing amazing things for you skin.

The Magnitone Lucid is a DEEP cleansing brush which means it digs deep into your skin obviously bringing all the icky stuff to the surface, this is a gradual process so this IS expected, you will thank Magnitone later!

The brush is 100% water proof which is perfect for me, I use the SebaMed cleansing bar which needs water to be able to rub onto my face so being able to wet the product is amazing.

WARNING: If you do wet the brush and are using a cleanser or generally do not like anything getting in your eyes, close them or dab the brush first on a towel. The brush holds water, it doesn't drain a lot so when you turn the brush on it will spray everywhere. I experienced this first hand it was a bit of a surprise!

I was skeptical before receiving as I had in my head that the brush would be mega spiky and hurt but I must say it is the softest thing ever, and also it doesn't stain easily from excess makeup, it rinses right out!

The Magnitone Lucid has two modes- Deep Clean, and Sensitive. Now my skin is super sensitive, I suffer very badly with eczema, and my skin genuinely hates anything I introduce to it, but honestly I have been fine with the Deep Clean mode, in fact I quite like it a bit more powerful as it feels like it is doing more.

The brush will beep every 20 seconds; this tells you to move onto a different part of your face. It will beep 3 sets of 20 before automatically turning off, I think this is great as it means you can never accidentally leave it on and run down the battery! Mine came fully charged which was great, I got to use it straight away! It does come with a wireless travel charger and charge is supposed to last up to 2 weeks.

The Magnitone Lucid comes in 4 different colours- Pink, Yellow, Mint, and Blue. My model is the Sunshine Yellow if you were interested. 

You're probably used to more photographic posts on here but I just felt like this needed a more in depth explanation/review. I want to wait a couple more weeks to post a before and after as I feel as though you will be able to see more of a difference.

If you are interested in purchasing a Magnitone Lucid for yourself I have been given an exclusive discount code for all my readers.

Use 'Monique20' for 20% off you Magnitone!

I hope you guys enjoyed this as much as my usual posts, it was so fun being able to review such a fantastic brand, especially one that has Pixie Lott as a brand ambassador, how exciting!
