The Closet Confidential Tag

Today, I'm going to be doing the Closet Confidential Tag which I believe was created by Fleur DeForce on Youtube. I've wanted to do a tag on my blog for a while now and I really like the questions for this tag so I thought I would give it a go.                          

1. What is the oldest item in your wardrobe/closet?    
I recently did a major clear out in my wardrobe so the oldest item in my wardrobe is from about three years ago when I was fifteen. It's a pair of flared patchwork jeans from a store called Justice. They don't fit me anymore but I keep them hidden in my wardrobe for a good laugh. I used to style them with cropped tops, I still cringe just thinking about how ridiculous I looked.

Skincare Review | Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream

When it comes to skincare, I have always been a Nivea girl but recently I've been on the hunt for the one holy grail product that ticks all the boxes. I started experimenting with a combination of the Aveeno daily moisturising lotion and the Aveeno body wash - big mistake. These products did nothing for my dry and sensitive skin, my skin was constantly irritated and it didn't feel moisturised. After ranting about how let down I was my mum suggested I try the Elizabeth Arden 8hr Cream Intensive Moisturising Body Treatment (that’s a mouthful). For the most part it does what it says on the box: This moisturizing treatment saturates your skin with the hydration it craves to reverse dryness and flaking. Leaves your skin soft, smooth and hydrated for up to eight hours.
