Welcome to Mavy's World

'Mavy's World?' I hear you saying. Mavy Savvy is a online 'trend store'-the perfect place to get a few deals especially during their sale (which is currently still on  so check it out ladies!).
Finding this little boutique was great, all their products have a unique feel to them; they're not just copies of items from other shops. Just what we want, something unique and stylish that not everyone owns already.

Now we've all had the cringy moment when you and someone else is wearing the same item of clothing, right? By shopping at Mavy Savvy you won't get that problem, they only supply 4 items per size in each garment so it's very unlikely you'll have to experience matching clothes ever again! It also means things sell out very quickly so new items are being added to the website daily, you can check them out under the 'what's new' section.

Now here are my current favourites on the website:

Cropped Faux Snakeskin Jacket 
This jacket has a lovely colour to it, a deep brown/black.
Faux Leather jackets are crazy in at the moment and this jacket is a great spin, with the cropped, pointed collar style, but with the snakeskin appearance to it.

This little number has to be my favourite just because of how unique it is!
Cut outs are very popular in dresses this season however I've not seen one with flowing 'sleeves' like this dress. I think it really adds to the dress giving it a strong feminine feel to it.

The crochet mesh adds delicacy and detail to the bodice on the dress-a truly beautiful addition to it.

Not only do Mavy Savvy offer stylish clothes you can get stunning accessories, swimwear and shoes too!

Liking what you see? Then go grab yourself something nice then! If you go quickly you'll be getting 40% off in their 'September sale' as well, what's stopping you?!

Super Long Lashes

We all hunt around for the best mascara we can find, don't we ladies? However, it's not very often we actually find 'the one' we like to stick to....well I have found the one! 

No7 are a Boots own brand and I am a huge fan of their products, although they are everyday products they are a bit more expensive than your usual items. I've always like No7 mascaras, I've tried their Intense Volume and Extreme Length mascaras too - but this is definitely my all time fave. 

For £12.50 for a tube of No7 Extreme Length is a bit pricey for those used to paying for the average £6 mascara but with such high quality I find it lasts a lot longer. What I also like is the option to keep applying layers to build up intensity, so it's perfect for everyday wear and for going out.

As you can see, the brush really grips on to your lashes and extends them for extra length. I find that if you apply a second coat in a zig-zag technique you get a more defined look to your lashes.

Not only does it extend and define extremely well, the application is also smooth and doesn't tend to clump lets face it, no one likes clumped up lashes! The rubber bristles make it really easy to focus on individual lashes and the ones in the corners of your eyes too.

The mascara comes in two colours; black and brown/black and also with the option of Sensitive Eyes or Waterproof for the same price.

Any other Extreme Length lovers out there? Or have an all time fave mascara of your own? I'd love to know!

Go Organic with Thea!

There's a lot of talk about organic skin care recently with people being worried about what chemicals they're putting on themselves by using non-organic products. So for the past couple of weeks I have been sampling some lovely products from Thea, which they lovingly sent me to trial!
I received them just as I was about to go to V Festival, knowing my skin would be horribly dry after the festival I left them at home to give them the ultimate test once I was home again!

I sampled Face Renew Fruit Enzyme Range-cleanser* and moisturiser*. As all Thea products they are Paraben and Sulphate free, vegan friendly, pH balances and are not tested on animals; a VERY friendly company to our skin and the rest on the world too.
The Fruit Enzyme range is to brighten and revive dull skin, the fruit enzyme formulas gently exfoliate the skin without having to scrub. I personally loved this because I often find myself being worried about facial scrubs harming my skin rather than being kind to me.

 Above is my 'before' pic, you can see around my nose I have dreadfully dry skin, I have blemishes on my cheeks and my skin is looking in a very poor condition.

Giving myself a couple of weeks to try the AMAZING smelling products here are my results...
Here is my 'after' pic, my dry skin has completely gone, my blemishes have faded well and my skin is looking all round in better condition. I'm very happy with the results, and also happy that I've got bits left of my products to continue using until I buy the products myself!

But how do the products work?

The main ingredients are: Organic Aloe Juice which attracts and seals in moisture,
Organic Palm, Neem and Apricot Oils which contain essential fatty acids and are easily absorbed by the skin,
Shea and Mango Butters that moisturise and hydrate your skin,
Seaweed Extract which increases blood flow and detoxifies,
The powerful antioxidant Green Tea,
Anti-bacterial extracts of Bilberry, Orange, Lemon and Cranberry, Essential oils of Pink Grapefruit, Lemon, Lime, Litsea and Mandarin to rejuvenate and plump the skin
Finally Vitamin E for it's anti-ageing properties and naturally occurring SPF of 6!

So its packed with all natural ingredients that do wonders for your skin!

Check out more of Thea's products on their website and bagsy yourself some of these yummy products!
