Kiehl's Skincare Consultant and Product Recommodations for Dry Skin

I recently spent the weekend in my hometown of Reading visiting my parents for Mother’s Day and taking Jenny to Nirvana Spa. Whilst in the Oracle I noticed a new shop had opened up and was really excited to see it was Kiehl’s. I’ve heard a lot about their skincare and have read review after review but having never visited a shop or seen the products in real life, I’ve never purchased anything.

Whilst having a browse in the shop, the sales assistants asked if we wanted to have a skin consultation. I was a little reluctant as we didn’t have much time before needing to leave for the spa but we agreed as we both wanted to learn more about the brand and their products.

Summer #OOTD - Long Sleeve Deep Plunge Playsuit from Boohoo

It’s finally that time of year when my wardrobe becomes lighter, brighter and more fun. As much as I will always love my trusty all in black outfits for those days when I don’t really want to think about what to wear, there’s so much I love about the vibrancy of my summer wardrobe. I’m definitely more of a summer girl which is why every year, around this time, I fill my wardrobe with so many beautiful spring and summer clothes to see me through the next 6 months. Hooray to not having to wear a big thick coat and scarf every day which covers up a nice outfit.

Earlier this year I was lucky enough to go on a blogger holiday to Lanzarote so of course my wardrobe needed updating before I went. I knew it was going to be warm in the day but more chilly at night so I searched my favourite online clothes website Boohoo for the perfect outfits. 

My new favourite playsuit, Ada Long Sleeve Deep Plunge Wrap Floral Playsuit is my latest addition. I fell in love with this the second I saw it, and even more so when I tried it on. I always struggle with anything that is floor length as I’m only 4’10 so everything is super long, but as this is only long at the back, it’s absolutely perfect. I know I probably should get it taken up a bit as it drags on the floor but it feels so sassy like it is when the wind gets under it the sun shines through the sheer fabric.

The playsuit has a zip on the side which makes it easy to get in and out of, and a plunging neckline. It does have long sleeves but the material is light so it definitely doesn’t feel too hot. 

As I'm off to Jamaica in just a couple of week, let me know if you have any recommendation of places to get some good summer clothes!

Love Lauren xx

Career Guest Post: Working as an Actress

For most the idea of a sick day, lounging in bed and binging on Netflix, although not entirely enjoyable, is a welcome relief from the daily grind of work. But for me, as I write this from my sick bed, I am desperate to find my way back to work. And that’s because I absolutely love my job. So when Laura from Blonde Vision was seeking Guest Bloggers to write for her Careers feature I jumped at the chance.

I am lucky enough to be a working actress. I am currently one of the ensemble actors in the West End production of Les Misérables, and I quite frankly have to pinch myself on a daily basis.

I, Kayleigh McKnight, goofy 25 year old girl from a tiny town on the borders of Essex, have somehow wangled my way into show business.

Brief description of job role and industry:
