Red Everything – my Zalando Picks

I’d never never heard of Zalando before I was kindly given the opportunity to review their amazing range of items, as potential gifts for the fashion-conscious. 

Zalando brings together brands from the high street and luxury labels together in a way that makes everything feel expensive and classy. Women’s, men’s, and children’s collections are available to browse. 

With winter in full swing, I gravitated towards their fantastic selection of boots. These Caprice Red zip-detailed ankle boots caught my eye. Air soles, and fleece lined, they’re warm, comfortable, and stylish! 

The centre piece for my order had to be this incredible Moschino bag – I can’t even hyperlink to it because I must have snapped up one of the last ones! 

You can also see pictured the fossil purse I ordered. Fossil are a great go to leather brand for purses and bags in my mind so I was pleased to find them sold here. I chose this purse as it tied into my theme, but with a touch of uniqueness to liven up the inside of my handbag. 

If you’re stuck for ideas for fashion loving ladies and gents in your life, or if you just want to treat yourself, visit Zalando. Take it from me, they’ve a new customer for life! 

This post is my opinion, the items were chosen by me but kindly given by Zalando. 


Beauty : Rimmel lasting finish collection

So it’s finally feeling like winter is a distant memory. The sun is out,  dewy mornings with criss-crossed clear blue skies…

Proof is in the ah... Ice-cream

I’ve been using Rimmel’s lasting finish foundation paired with the powder for a couple of weeks now ; enough that my skin can get used to it and to see how it performs overall.


Firstly I’ve had terrible skin recently due to stress.  The formula of the foundation is very kind on the skin and delicately Scented of Watermelon. Yeah! Who doesn’t love that?

The colour (I’ve used 100 ivory for the foundation and 01 light porcelain for the powder)  is perfect.  It blends nicely with its creamy formula. It isn’t as thick as I was expecting for a foundation that claims to be long  lasting but I don’t feel that that is a bad thing.

Warm weather means you don’t want thick and overbearing product on your face –  almost forgot to mention it’s SPF20 too! Protection as well as everything else!

After a long day at work my skin still looks relatively flawless,  and the creases I usually get on my eyelids if I don’t bother with eyeshadow don’t exist when I use this foundation,  set with the powder using my body shop kabuki brush.

All in all,  this is a perfect all-day wear everyday foundation that smells great  applies well,  is gentle on the skin and is also easy on the pocket at around ยฃ7.99. I’m very happy with this product and give it 5/5. Yep.  Full marks!

The powder comes in a nice case with the mirror underneath the powder with a sponge for application –  this is a nice touch seeing as (and I don’t know about you) but I get sick of product smearing on the mirror inside compacts and rendering them unusable! I liked the powder as it’s not too powdery – by that I mean when you touch it with a brush it doesn’t puff up everywhere and go anywhere except in the brush and onto your face!
