MakeBelieveBeauty - Tanning Range*

All products from MakeBelieveBeauty
If you have been following my blog for awhile now, you will know that I am a tan fanatic. Being so naturally pale I tend to fake tan 24/7 to give my skin a naturally healthy glow. You can imagine my delight when MakeBelieveBeauty sent me their entire tanning range - I am now stocked up for a lifetime! I had heard so much about the brand before as it has been featured in magazines such as Cosmopolitan so I was excited to try it out for myself. I have been trying out the range for a few weeks now and I am completely blown away with how good the actual products are. I could sit here all day writing about what I love about each product but instead I will just chat to you about my 2 absolute favourites from the range. (sidenote: I only talk about tans I genuinely adore so I can cross my heart and hope to die that this is a range I adore)
1. Starting off with the "Spa & Polish Exfoliator" which is an absolute tanning must in my eyes! We all know how much of a disaster fake tanning can potentially be so it is so important to find a good quality exfoliator which will remove any old tan and dead skin. This is something that I generally struggle with as I rarely find an exfoliator strong enough to freshen up my skin without causing irritation. Suffering from skin diseases like psoriasis makes finding a good product a lot harder. The creamy texture with small beads honestly removes tan from the skin with a quick rub leaving your skin feeling fresh and clean, with zero irritation. It's buffing formula ensures you have the perfect canvas to apply an even layer of tan and better yet it has the most beautiful rainforest-esque fragrance that you end up smelling like a dream. 
2. My second favourite product from the range is the "Self Tan Mist with Bronzer", if you like to be dark then this is the product for you! Honestly I have never used a tan that produces such a natural looking bronzed look. It absolutely simple to apply with it being a mist so it ensures you get an even tan all over. What I love the most about the product is that it is extremely moisturising. A lot of the time fake tans tend to seep into and emphasis dry patches of skin which can be a nightmare but because it is lanolin and paraben free and full of argan oil, aloe vera and more it is so gently on the skin and evens out any patches that usually appear - bonus! The colour also develops within 2-4 hours meaning the longer you leave it on, the darker the colour appears! I tend to apply mine before bed and wash it off the following morning to ensure a nice bronzed colour has developed. It can be used both on your Face and Body giving it a 10/10 in my eyes!
From the Self Tan Mist to the Gradual Tan Lotion and more there is something in the range that suits everyones tanning needs. I am delighted I got to try out the tan and know for a fact it will remain part of my tanning routine for the foreseeable future. 
If your interested in testing out the MakeBelieve Tanning range for yourself then you can buy it online here, but shipping can work out a little bit costly. MakeBelieve Tan is also available in 50 stockists throughout the country like McCartans, Dairy Farm, McAleer Medical Hall and so much more - you can check out their website here for any info you may need. 
Trust me, if your looking for a new tanning product, then MakeBelieve Tan is a must!

The "IT" Coat with Marks and Spencer*

At long last it's cold - did you ever think someone would actually say that? It is finally time to pull out the faux fur coats, fluffy hats and blanket scarfs that you had hidden in your wardrobe all Summer. I have said it before but there is honestly something about this time of year that makes me extremely happy. 
Today's look is all about this AMAZING "Faux Fur Leopard Print Overcoat" from Per Una at Marks and Spencer. It is the most luxurious piece I own and screams glamour but of course with a little bit of an edge. Leopard Print Faux Fur is a massive trend again this A/W and it is one I personally love. Whether it is day or night, you can dress up the look with the right accessories. I wanted to create a simple urban edge to this look with a "Basic Black Polo" and of course my beloved "Black Ripped Skinnies". Nothing finishes off a look better than the right shoes, so of course I had to go with a pair of simple black boots and these "Sock Boots" also from Marks and Spencer were a must. 
There is honestly nothing better than investing in good quality Jackets and Shoes especially in A/W because they are key wardrobe pieces that will see you through the whole season, so if you like the pieces I picked up, you can shop them all below:
