Spring Elegance... Plus Size Trench Coats you need..

When Spring arrives, knee boots get stored away, sandals come out, thick long coats get folded away and the spring trench coat makes an appearance. In this look I am sporting a gorgeous trench coat from Elvi Clothing a UK based Plus Sized Fashion brand. As always, I like to style coats like this with very simple clothing, normally and all black or white ensemble. 

I have also put together a list of other trench coats that I know you would love. As a Plus Size Fashion Blogger myself, I know finding the perfect coat for you could be a but of a mission. Hopefully this look and some of my suggestions could support you.

Beauty Products I have been loving!

Lovers, Its been a while! Thank you for coming back and checking out the blog. Whilst I have been working on ways to adjust to the new year for myself and my family, business and my career, I have also come back with a new blog template. I hope you like it? Many thanks to who have patiently worked with me over the years whilst I transform this space into something that is totally me!
Anyway, so much to come, but lets look at what I have been loving recently for beauty. Starting with Skincare, Makeup and of course Tools. My products relatively remain the same as I am the type of person to rotate around products that I know work for me... however, recently, I have been sent some amazing products which I am totes excited about which I want to share with you!

I have been into DIY Masks.. check out these few videos on my YouTube Channel, demonstrating some amazing masks I have tried out...
My particular favourite mask is L'Oreal Pure Clay Masks in all 3 different types.
Depending on my mood, or actually what I have done with my skin that day- I use a different type of mask from the collection. On a day where I have worn a full face of makeup, my face tends to produce extra oils, particularly on my nose. I then use the Pure Clay Purity Mask which is perfect for mattifying and extracting oil from skin.
I use the Pure Clay Glow Mask  on days where I have not worn makeup and require exfoliating and an extra glow. This mask is perfect for brightening skin for those of us who have dull, dry skin.
And finally the Pure Clay Detox Mask is what I use on occasions where I want to tackle those pimple and black heads. This product is for clarifying the skin and removing those bugs imbedded into our pores. All in all, I rotate all three masks on a daily basis.

For the past year I have been using this product by The Body Shop, The Drops of Youth Range was quite popular last year. I use this cream  Drops of Youth Youth Cream to moisturise my face at least twice daily. It feels soft, and hydrates my skin all day/night long. Perfect for using after a thorough face wash especially after using a face mask.

What is really important for me is my eyebrows! It is a must That I have amazing Brows... and by using the Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil, My Brow game has completely changed! The shade I use is number 6 Deep. Benefit Cosmetics have been so sweet recently, supplying me with so many lovely new products from PR, and of course, I have been tucking in and experimenting with these new releases. This brow pencil gives me a defined and perfect Brow shape!

I would have loved to show you what has been my favourite concealer, or even blush, so you know what I have been using, but honestly, nothing has changed. However, the foundation that has literally caught my heart is the L'Oreal True Match Foundation. The formula is amazing. Blends immaculately, long lasting, oil free and an absolute perfect match. Last year, they extended their shades, and of course, that was a joyous moment. I love how deep and rich the tone is and how much it enhances my chocolate skin tone.
My shade is in 9.R/9.C- Deep Cool.

Tools: Brushes
Some of you may already know, I have my own cosmetics line- Amby Rose, where we specialise in affordable beauty tools such as Full Makeup Brush SetsEyelashes and Matte Liquid Lipstick. I use these brushes everyday for makeup application and am able to achieve a full face using each brush.
I would be doing a separate blog post on the entire brand soon as I have only got posts up from my YouTube channel.

The Original Dozen Brush Collection- consisting of 12 makeup brushes 4 for the face and 8 eye brushes.

We also released our 5 Face Brush Set in 2 styles. This super soft and amazing brushes have changed my makeup game entirely. Be sure to wait for a full review coming soon, but honestly, not to be biased but.. these are the best brushes I have ever used!

Style on Champs-Élysées

A girl like me often likes to dress up and feel fabulous when in a magical city like Paris. As the evening was dawning to an end whilst we raided the streets of Paris, I settled for a cool city chic, some what corporate and stylish outfit. Minimal hues, with all black and a pop of colour with this sleeveless body. I tend to wear outfits like this to prove I can fight the cold but end up miserably failing, and freezing my butt off! However, if you can spot a perfect winter coat to work with this outfit, it may just be your perfect 'to the office' type look.
