Modern super skinny jeans- Target (here)
Wedges- Witchery (old, similar here)

Since I saw one of my major blogger crushes, Julia of Gal Meets Glam, wearing these blue RayBan's-  for example  here and here, I couldn't get them out of my head.  Her style is so classic and feminine, but she still rocks these sunnies! Vision Direct had them for the right price- in fact a best price guarentee, free express shipping, 100 day returns and a free lens kit.

With these blue aviators, and a fluttering white I'm ready for Spring!!

Maybelline SuperStay + GIVEAWAY

Brought to you by Nuffnang and Maybelline

Over the last few weeks I have been testing out the NEW Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Range.  Its Maybelline's first vitamin enriched long wear foundation and concealer with skin improving Actyl-C formula.

So what is Actyl-C? The same question did cross my mind! It's actually a vitamin derivative which leaves skin feeling energized, fresh, healthy and radiant.  It also promotes skin regeneration, so much so that the word is that in just three weeks of using Maybelline's SuperStay Better Skin range you will see smoother skin and more even skin tone!

The foundation is lightweight and comfortable, while giving full all day flawless coverage.  The SPF14 is another bonus feature of this foundation. For a long time I've used BB cream, but I loved the coverage of this foundation combined with the concealer and a powder, plus it still looked great at the end of the day.  The concealer reduces those dark under eye circles beautifully- a must when I've spent the night up with bub. The numbering of the shades across the SuperStay range is consistent, which makes it really easy to get a great match between concealer, foundation and powder.

I particularly love that this range goes above and beyond your regular makeup, actually improving your skin!! Great for those of us for whom multitasking is a must.

There are eight shades of the Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation ($21.95); I'm the 021 Nude during winter which is the fourth swatch from the left in the pics above.  And two tones of the Maybeline SuperStay Better Skin Concealer ($14.95); I'm the 02 Light.

To find out more about these products and the chance to WIN 1 of 500 foundations head to the Maybelline Facebook page.

WIN a $100 Priceline voucher.

Leave a comment below with your email address telling me what benefits of the Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation most appeal to you and why?

Competition closes Friday 19 September 2014, most creative answer wins.  Terms and conditions here.

Lily Jade

Knit- Target (similar here, and here)
Shoes- Steve Madden (similar here)
Sunnies- RayBan (similar here)
Watch- Swatch (similar here)

I bought this skirt on Asos over a couple of years ago now, just before I fell pregnant actually, so this is the first time I've worn it!  I'm seeing a lot of lace skirts with a shorter underskirt around at the moment, so I like that this is a different version of this.  Paired today with this light cashmere knit and  nude heels.

This lovely smart bag by Lily Jade is in fact a nappy bag!!  Designed, very cleverly I might add, to last through motherhood and beyond.  This bag comes with a removable and washable 'baby bag' organiser and a washable changing pad.  The organiser has over 14 pockets so there really is a spot for everything!  When the baby bag is removed, this beautiful bag contains everything you would expect from a regular handbag.

In Your Dreams

Denim shirt- Sportscraft (similar here)
In Your Dreams pencil skirt- thanks to St Frock
Heels- Steve Madden (similar here)
Sunnies- RayBan (here)

Pencil skirts are one of my favourite pieces of clothing; always feminine, sophisticated and flattering.  I love the mesh panel on this skirt, which you don't notice at first glance.  But once the light is behind there is that cheeky extra glimpse of leg!
