Triangl Swimwear & Underwear

Triangl is a company that I have recently been seeing everywhere. You may have seen their gorgeous designs, unique styles appearing on the likes of bloggers, models and of course the social media site, Instagram! Photos of these gorgeously slim women wearing these interesting designs have made me lust after these amazing two pieces.
The bikini's are made from a thick material called Neoprene which is a wet suit material which I haven't seen before in a bikini. After reading reviews it seems that the Neoprene helps keep everything covered, doesn't go see through when wet and is well fitted.
The underwear is made out of a thin almost mesh like material and again after reading reviews, the cups are ever so slightly padded as the material is thicker there than the sides of the bra.
Below are a few different swimwear and underwear pieces that are available and have caught my eye.

1. Winnie Lily Leopard - £52.89 | 2. Winnie Miami Mint - £52.89 | 3. Winnie Arizona Sunset - £52.89

4. Indy Holli Hyde - £46.95 | 5. Indy Malibu Blue - £46.95 | 6. Indiana Ice - £46.95

7. Lucie Tangerine - £32.69 | 8. Lucie Spearmint - £32.69 | 9. Lucie Champagne Coral - £32.69
10. Isabel Marshmellow - £26.74 | 11. Isabel Candy Pink - £26.74 | 12. Isabel Licorice - £26.74 

My faves are the Winnie range in the swimwear and the Lucie range in the underwear! 
All prices are in dollars but I have converted them for the purpose of this post. Delivery is £11.89 per order.

What do you think of Triangl's swimwear and underwear?

What Emily Wore | 5 Year Anniversary

Playsuit - Glamourous | Blazer - Primark | Tights - Primark | Watch - Michael Kors | Necklace - Primark

Today I want to share with you what I wore for mine and my boyfriends 5 year anniversary which was last Tuesday. We were undecided of what to do, so we visited our local town to do some shopping and thought we would treat each other with a few new bits of clothing. (I'll show you what I got in another post) While we were out we also grabbed some lunch in a lovely little pub near us that we haven't been to before. We were very happy with our meals and it had such a lovely atmosphere
I decided to wear this playsuit that has been sitting in my wardrobe for a good while now and thought this was the perfect time to wear it. I paired it with some black thick tights as it wasn't quite warm enough for bare legs, my navy Primark blazer and also some plain black pumps, which aren't pictured.
I'd forgotten how much I love a good blazer and how they can instantly work with any outfit. Definitely buying some more!

Jacava | Oxford Street Nail Varnish

What They Say - 'Nail Polish by JACAVA® London is '8-free'. The nourishing formula helps your nails stay stronger and grow longer. The non-toxic formulation does not contain Formaldehyde, Camphor, Toluene, DBP, Formaldehyde Resin, Phthalates or Animal Ingredients. Never tested on animals, so JACAVA is also Vegan-friendly. The long-lasting, high-gloss nail polishes are designed in London and made in the UK - a quintessentially British nail varnish brand. A little treat where nothing is denied, even the 22 carat gold print adds subtle luxury'

I have mentioned Jacava nail varnishes on my blog a couple of times now (here and here), and I have been lucky enough to be sent one of their new nail colours for Spring.
I was sent this gorgeous shade called Oxford Street. It is described as 'A mouth watering redcurrant compote with intermittent bursts of iridescence that will keep you enraptured. This shade has been inspired by the vibrancy of London's Oxford Street.'
Like all the other Jacava nail polishes I have reviewed, it applied smoothly with a barely there scent of nail varnish. The above picture shows it with two coats. I personally feel that it could maybe do with another one to show off it's full colour. In the bottle and on the website, it is showing up quite red but after swatching it, I would say it has more of a pinky tinge to it. The glitter particles are quite big and it sometimes can take a while to get a decent amount on each nail which can get a bit annoying.
I also received a clear nail varnish which was nice to add over the top to help keep my nails looking freshly painted for longer and smooth any edges of the glitter particles down.
Overall Oxford Street is a lovely polish and I'm happy to have it in my collection.

Jacava's Oxford Street retails for £14.50 and can be purchased here.

Ghost Perfume

I bought this perfume about a month ago now for pure nostalgia reasons. Ghost The Fragrance was my first ever 'grown up' perfume back when I was 14 (nearly 10 years ago!). I remember walking into Debenhams with my mum and her saying she would treat me to my first bottle of perfume. After spraying many onto those little perfume cards, I eventually decided on this one. I was so excited and as soon as I got home I moved all my So..? perfumes and Charlie sprays to one side and placed this proudly on my shelf.
So it was only right, when I was in Debenhams recently I had to give it a spritz. It reminded me of how much I liked it and I of course had to buy a bottle.
I would describe Ghost as a sweet musky perfume with notes of vanilla, rose petals and Jasmine. I'm really rubbish at describing scents but when you're next in a perfume shop, go and give it a little spritz!
And even though this is an Eau De Toilette perfume, I do find it does last on the skin and especially your clothes, so there's no need to respray throughout the day.

Do you own Ghost?

Angelica Nail Colour SS14 Collection

L-R | Milk Caramel, Apricot, Think Pink, Pokerface

Angelica Nail Colour was launched in 2011 and is currently available at over 80 Primark and Penny's stores throughout the UK and Ireland, as well as their online store.
Sadly my local Primark isn't one of them, so I was extremely happy when Angelica contacted me asking if I would like to review a few of their new Spring/Summer nail varnishes. I was kindly sent four shades and they are all gorgeous.
Milk Caramel* is a lovely neutral shade perfect for everyday wear. Apricot* is a gorgeous coral which will look ah-mazing with a tan. You can't go wrong with Pink nail varnish and Think Pink* doesn't disappoint, such a vibrant colour. Pokerface* is actually more of a lilac shade which again will look great with a tan. (It's showing more blue in this photo).
All four of these nail varnishes applied with ease and glided smoothly onto the nails. They all only needed two coats and dried pretty quickly.
They are extremely affordable at only £2.75 a bottle and come in a range of colours and finishes. I'm really impressed with Angelica Nail Colour and I'm interested in purchasing a few more from them.

Angelica nail varnishes retail for £2.75 a bottle.
Milk Caramel and Apricot are from the Spring collection and can be found online but Think Pink and Pokerface are from the Summer collection and are due to be released in the near future.

Have you tried Angelica Nail Colour before?

March Favourites

Benefit Stay Flawless 15 Hour Primer | This little sample came in the Hello Flawless foundation box. I'm a big lover of their Porefessional but I think this lil beauty might have to be my new fave! It leaves my skin feeling lovely and smooth and after I apply my foundation it does look 'flawless'. I have also noticed it keeps my face makeup on for longer. I'm definitely considering buying the full sized version of this as I love it.

Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation | At first I didn't like this foundation. It didn't give me enough coverage and it just didn't last long after applied. But I decided to persevere with it and tried different brushes to apply it with. After about a month or so, I started to really like it. I found a brush which worked the best and it helped it give me a little more coverage. Also using the Stay Flawless Primer, I noticed the whole application was much smoother. Full review to come soon!

Benefit Gimmie Brow | This has to be my new favourite product in my entire makeup bag. This little beauty makes such a difference on my eyebrows, I couldn't live with out it! It instantly makes them look thicker and creates such a nice shape. If you would like to read my recent review on Gimmie Brow you can click here.

Ghost Perfume | This perfume was my first ever 'grown up' perfume back when I was 14. So when I was in the perfume section of Debenhams, I thought I would give it a spritz for nostalgia reasons and instantly fell back in love with it. So of course I had to purchase myself a bottle. I'm rubbish at describing perfumes but it's a sweet rose sort of smell with a hint of Vanilla.....just go and give it a sniff when your in a perfume shop ;).

ELF High Definition Undereye Setting Powder | I've had this product sitting in my makeup drawer for ages now. It's one of those products I bought for the sake of it, probably with no intention of actually using it. But just recently I have noticed the concealer under my eyes start to crease throughout the day. That's when I remembered I bought this product and dug it out of my makeup drawer. I apply it with a RT brush under and around my eye and have noticed such a difference. My undereye looks brighter and more importantly, the concealer underneath doesn't crease.

Real Techniques Setting Brush | I use this brush to apply the ELF HD powder under my eyes. As it's a nice and fluffy brush it applies smoothly with ease. I gently buff the product in and it leaves my skin feeling soft to the touch. Considering I never thought I would use this product, it has now become a staple in my makeup bag.

What are your favourites for the month of March?
