Lifestyle | CaseApp Review

Caseapp

I've been a little bit obsessed recently with buying phone cases for my iPhone 7 Plus. There's just so many cute ones available that I just can't resist! I used to just buy the one for my old Samsung Galaxy 3 mini (well old I know!), as it was such a crap phone and you couldn't get many nice designs for the old phone I didn't used to bother getting any new cases for it. But now I've had the iPhone 7 Plus for a few months, I'm buying so many cases! Get they aren't all unique like these ones I designed on CaseApp! Let's talk a bit about my new cases...

Caseapp

I'd seen this brand on Instagram a fair few times and wasn't quite sure what the brand did exactly until I realised you can create custom design cases on there! So of course I had to have a go at this and design 2 different cases. I decided to go for a really personal collage full of all my favourite pictures, from personal favourites to a few pictures I photographed myself. Each photo I added into the collage mean something different to me. There's one from Cadbury World, my 20th Birthday, MCM Comic Con, Me & Reiss, Disneyland, London, all my favourite memories basically! I've had this case on my phone for ages now! I love it! But also to the fact I'm struggling to get the case off my phone...?

Caseapp

The plastic that the case is made out of is actually SO much stronger than any other cases I own. They must protect it well as I'm struggling to get the case off! This other case I designed, was one of the pictures I took myself on my Nikon camera. I just loved it and thought it would be a nice autumnal picture to have on my case and look really nice! I went for the glossy finish on the cases as you can choose between glossy and matte - and we all know I'm not a matte person that's for sure! I honestly love these cases and they are my favourites in my case collection so far!

If you want to have a go at designing your own phone cases for yourself, no matter if you don't have an iPhone, they design for Samsungs, mac books and iPads too! You can also design your own phone holder, OnePlus phone cases, Nokia, HTC, iPod, PC Laptops! If you don't want to upload your own pictures, they have a wide range of cases you can choose from for any device mentioned that you own!

Beauty | SkinKissed Vitamin C Serum Review


The latest beauty serum product to hit my beauty cabinet. I've tried and tested this product a fair few times. I like the unusual packaging, with the medicine bottle like glass, the pipette is very handy for collecting up the product easily without any mess, the label is very informative and the overall logo is pretty cute too!

Onto the product itself. I used this product for a solid week of using it twice a day - so morning and night. This was definitely not a good idea for my skin type. I was putting too much product onto my face, which was casing me to break out. This is normal for me ass if I use too much of a product, it can break me out. Especially if I use any kind of serum more than once a day. So I cut it down to every other day, which helped and stopped me breaking out again. I have seen a slight difference in my skin as it's helping the parts of my skin that has blemishes for definite. I've included some before and after photos below. Just bare in mind that I now use the product once a day, or every other day due to my skin type being a combination.

Before


After


As you can see by the photos, especially in the middle of my forehead, that's where it's improved the most. The area I mainly broke out in spots was my chin, which is where most of my oily skin is. I would definitely recommend you to try this out for yourself! It includes ingredients such as; Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C. It's also stated to be a good base and primer for make up! I've not tried it out for that yet, but it's one I'll definitely try out at some point! It also says that it helps create a healthier glow and as you can see by the photos, it certainly has helped by that!

If your interested in buying the SkinKissed Vitamin C Serum for yourself or someone else, I have a discount code for you to use that gets you 20% off your entire order! Use the code "isobelceline20" at the checkout to receive your discount!

Have you ever tried this serum out before?

Fashion | Flares For Autumn

Autumn Fashion

Autumn will soon be coming to an end unfortunately and winter is clearly on it's way! I shot these pictures when the weather was hit and miss with warm and cold temperatures. That time you wore a jumper in the morning then regretted it in the afternoon. Hate that type of weather. I love wrapping up in layer upon layer. This outfit is basically more of a transitional piece, as the kaftan top you can wear between summer and autumn - you could possibly get away with wearing it during spring too. I loved the design of this top when I spotted it on UK Swimwear. I thought I could style it up with black flares like I have here for autumn, and then bring it with me for the beach when the warmer weather comes back or if I jet off to a hot country at some point. Perfect bikini cover up!

I am literally living in flares this autumn! I swear they always become my go to's for the autumn season, but i never know why? Must be because of how stylish, yet comfortable they are! Especially black ones, these are the ones I've lived in the last 2 months! As well as this bag, you've probably seen and heard enough about this bag ever since the day I bought it! It makes me want the original Valentino bag in this design! Christmas wish list please!

Overall, I wanted to create a autumnal casual look that was quite transitional as well. Flares with my Adidas superstars always look good! Stylish yet casual. What have you been styling up throughout autumn?

Lifestyle | What Happened In October


Scotland

October kicked off with seeing Basshunter! What a way to start the month! It was brilliant! If you follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (isobelceline), you would of seen how much the Kasbah got turned into a rave for the night! I also manage to fit in a fair few shopping sprees this months with different friends and with Reiss, all on seperate occasions, so clearly my bank balance is screaming for help right now hahaa! But it's not all bad as I bought the majority of my Christmas presents for everyone already - organised or what?! I'm actually getting quite excited for all the Christmas festivities now that Halloween is out the way!

Speaking of Halloween, I've never celebrated it so much before! I went to a pumpkin farm with my Dad, carved pumpkins with Reiss, decorated the house in Pumpkins and attended a house party on Halloween! Watch my Halloween themed vlog here. I also went to Bicester Village on the day of Halloween with a couple of friends and hurt my bank account again, but not to the point where I splurged on Gucci or Prada or anything - girls got save up for that shit! I just bought a couple of bits from a cosmetics shop, Calvin Klein and a Christmas present from Cath Kidson. So not a lot really. But they've got loads more shops open there now too so definitely go and have a shopping spree yourself there!

I also spent a lot of time with family during October which was really nice and I appreciated the time I spent with everyone of them! I went out for the day with my Dad which is in my vlog I linked above, a meal out with my Mum and Step Dad, then also went up to the coast to see my Grandparents which was lovely!

I also went up to Scotland for the weekend with Reiss. The day before though, we were supposed to go to Brick Live, but Reiss wasn't feeling too good so we didn't go in the end. We headed up to Scotland the next day and Reiss got worse during our stay the poor thing. I ended up looking after him the whole time. We got to see around Dunoon, but didn't get to see the places we planned on seeing. I have to shout out the lovely people who helped us and were so kind and lovely during our stay at the Selbourne Hotel! I would definitely recommend staying there! Lovely location, good food, good service, lovely people, beautiful views, very clean and great facilities! Will definitely be going back there at some point!

That sums up what happened in October! See you next month for Fireworks, meals out and trampolining!

Beauty | Latest Skincare Additions

Clinique Eye Cream

I've recently been loving getting into my skincare routine, but lately I've been trying a few new ones, as well as some old favourites I used to love.

Clinique All About Eyes Cream


I treated myself to this on the ferry on the way back from Disneyland Paris, as I've been using the same eye cream for ages and have just become bored of it. So, seeing as I love the moisturiser I use from Clinique and the benefits from it were amazing! So I had to try the eye cream. My eyes have definitely improved on puffiness and circles have been reduced, but I just wish there was a cream to get rid of purple bags! My eyes have been like that for years and I hate it! But anyway, I'm loving this eye cream so far!

Liz Earle Skin Tonic Spritzer

Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer


I've used the normal tonic before and loved it, but because of how much I used it, it ran out faster, the spritzer is so much easier and convenient and I feel lasts so much longer as well as gives that moisture when my face feels dehydrated.

O'Keeffe's Working Hand Cream

O'Keeffe's Working Hands Cream


This stuff is a miracle in a tube! I wash my hands quite a lot and it often makes my hands so dry, red and flaky. When I apply this cream it's like it repairs my hands, it's just perfect! Definitely try it if  your hands get a bit worse for wear every now and again.

Dove Derma Spa Summer Revived Body Lotion

Dove Derma Spa Summer Revived Body Lotion


I first read about these lotions by Dove on Aline Sirbu's blog, it sounded so good that I bought 2 tubes of it - one in fair and one in dark so I could see how dark I wanted my tan. It's honestly one of the most moisturising self-tanning lotions I've used to date! The fair one gives a very subtle tan on my pale skin, but I haven't yet tried the dark tone one yet!

Biore Charcoal Nose Pore Strips

Biore Deep Cleansing Nose Pore Strips


I tried these first on Reiss' nose and the results were fascinating! The amount of stuff that gets pulled out of your nose is insane! A couple of days later I tried it myself and get so mesmerised by what these strips pull out of your face! Try them for yourself for definite!

Regenerate Toothpaste

Regenerate Toothpaste


Did you ever read my review on this stuff? Find it here. I recently repurchased this in Boots for £6.99 as I honestly just loved using it! Still not always loving the texture of the formula, but it definitely makes a difference to my teeth!

SkinKissed Vitamin C Serum

*SkinKissed Vitamin C Serum


I've been dying to try a Vitamin C enriched product for ages! I was so happy when this one came along! The consistency of this serum is quite runny as well as sticky when dried, but not annoyingly, as you just need to add your moisturiser on top to make your skin feel as it should - nice and smooth. I'm currently trying this serum oil out so there will be an extra review on this product at some point! I've also got a discount code for you guys if you'd like to try this out for yourselves! Use "isobelceline20" to get 20% off your entire order!

Glam Glow Thirsty Mud Hydrating Treatment

GlamGlow Thirsty Mud Pot


When I first opened this pot, the look of the product honestly looked like honey! I've tried it a few times and it helps my skin to feel re-hydrated again, as well as feel smooth. I honestly love Glam Glow products and am dying to try out their glow-setter spray! I recently repurchased the purple pot and also decided to try out their Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturiser ! IT'S AMAZING!

Travel | Shackerstone Family Festival

Shackerstone Family Festival

Ever heard of this festival? I know we're WELL past the festival season and on our way towards Christmas now, but I really wanted to mention this particular place that we went to for a day out in case anyone was interested in going next time it's on in September next year. You may think it's your average get drunk and party to the acts in the line up, but not, (even though there is one tent that has a bar and entertainment on) this one is completely different, apart from the fact its in a field still.

Shackerstone Family Festival
Shackerstone Family Festival

Shackerstone festival was filled with lots of different stalls, including charity stalls, bath bombs, fudge, tombola's (which we won nothing on! it's not all bad though, as our money we spent on it went towards breast cancer). There was a mini fair ground, lots of different cars - new and old. Me and Reiss found a really nice looking Mustang (picture below)! We met lots of dogs too - perfect for me and Sophie as we just love them!

Shackerstone Family Festival

During the day there were different shows and events going on, from chain saw log sculpting, medieval themed jousting - I got really into this surprisingly! There was supposed to be a motorbike stunt show in a massive moving wheel, but it was cancelled due to it being so wet - there was me in a dress and converse! There was also lawn mower racing too - that was quite amusing!

Shackerstone Family Festival
Alongside the event was a canal with different boats selling things. The only thing I bought was Unicorn Fizz for the bath, chips and a few goes on the tombola. Regardless of the weather, it was quite a nice, different day out! Great for families and children too!

Fashion | Paperbag Trousers

Autumn Fashion
Autumn Fashion

I swear I've been raving about how excited I am that Autumn is here since all the new collections started coming out at the start of September. That perfect smell of the outdoors from the trees, leaves on the ground, the misty air, that damp wood smell, the warm sun rays. I just love it all and am embracing it each day!

Autumn Fashion

I used to love wearing hats, and this fedora is one of them. I fell out of love with it for a while, but now I've got an excuse to wear it again! It looks so nice with this classy outfit, I don't normally wear this sort of classy suit style, but I'm loving it and worn a few outfits similar to this lately. I would really love a full checkered print fitted suit, as well as a vibrant red coloured fitted suit. They just look so classy and smart, yet so dressy and glam!

Autumn FashionAutumn Fashion

As for these trousers, I really liked the ones I'd seen floating about on Instagram and wanted to try them for myself for ages. So when I spotted these on Wearall I really wanted to try them, but in black first of course to fit them into my A/W wardrobe, and to play around with the different styles to see what outfits look best together. I wanted to go for a smart, casual but bohemian glam kind of look. So adding in this charity shop find blazer (originally from H&M), my favourite PVC/Vinyl black boots that I swear go with everything! Adding in a simple ribbed turtle neck jumper made the outfit perfect for the office but also great for a meal out somewhere or for drinks.

Of course, I had to add in my favourite bag of the year to top the outfit off! As for the trousers, I love the style and the fit, but they are a bit tight on the crotch area, so I wore the trousers around my hips rather than my waist. But other than that, I'll be wearing these a lot!

Fashion | Khaki Ruffle Top

Editiorial

I'm absolutely loving autumn! I've probably said that so many times, but I just can't help it! Autumn fashion is my all time favourite! Next to all the autumnal backgrounds that are about too. The colours I've definitely incorporated into this outfit!

I am in love with the design of this top from Wearall! I've worn it a few times lately, and especially love how it looks with my black flares! Gives the look an updated 70's vibe. I love how it covers up in all the right places, but also shows off your shoulders in a very beautiful way. The ruffles are very on trend for this seasons key trends as well as the sleeve design - definitely ticks all the right boxes for this seasons trends!

Autumn Fashion

Of course, I still live in this mustard leather jacket! I've worn literally to death and had it for over a year now! It's just such a staple and stand out piece that goes with SO much! This is definitely going to be one of my outfits on repeat throughout autumn! I even wore this outfit for a night out as well and it was so comfortable and I was able to stay comfortable all night and even in my black pvc boots! Which I lived in last years A/W season and of course had to relive in them throughout this new season!
