Hi guys, I’m so sorry that I haven’t blogged in a while. I have had a couple of grotty weeks and non stop hospital appointments. I lost my bloggers mojo and was suffering from bloggers block lol! I couldn’t decide what to write about next??!
I love Instagram and I love learning about all the latest trends, products and styles to rock. I could sit for hours watching all the beautiful makeup demos, nail demos and hair creations.
If you are in need of a new look, pop along to Instagram first, its a wonderful visual look book collage of all that is hot and now, with step by step tutorials and demonstrations.
I thought I would collaborate some of my favourite products and looks from this month and share them with you. I have tracked down where you can buy them from or what the trend is called and researched why Instagram is loving them so much. All those hashtags can be confusing sometimes and it can be hard to work out what the product is or where it came from, so I have done the hard work for you, enjoy lovelies.
