Those of you who are fans of TV show, 'Revenge' will recognise this face, probably instantly. Ashley plays Ashley Davenport on the hit show, and is always impeccably dressed on screen. This is also true of her real life looks, as she writes her own fashion blog 'Ring My Bell'. I have not seen her wear something I hate yet, and that really does say something about her style!

Soap and Glory 'Scrub of your life'// Percy and Reed Finishing Polish// Vera Wang 'Princess'// Benefit 'Big Beautiful Eyes' Palette// Topshop Cream Highlighters

I love beauty Products, but I don't often do beauty posts, so I decided to do a post on My five favourite beauty products at the moment.

1. Soap & Glory 'Scrub of Your Life' Body Scrub
I have a literal addiction to Soap & Glory scrubs, as I feel they are the best ones on very dry skin. I do suffer from extremely dry skin, and this one makes my skin amazingly soft and smooth. It comes with the signature Soap & Glory scent as well, which is definitely a bonus.

2. Percy & Reed 'Quite Frankly Flawless Finishing Polish'
I got this free with Glamour Magazine a few months ago, relegated it to the bottom of my beauty box, and totally forgot about it until I moved back home. I am now totally and officially in love with it. Is it possible to marry a hair product? because I need this to be in my life forever! (and I'll have the hottest wedding hair ever!) It is perfect for helping to control those annoying stray hairs, without making my hair look too neat, as I prefer to wear it slightly messy.

3. Vera Wang 'Princess'
This perfume is so summery and floral, that I have been wearing it constantly in the recent bout of sunshine. I bought it in the airport as a little present for finishing 2nd year of uni, and because Princess is my and my friends pet name for each other, and I won't see her for three months, so it cheers me up seeing it everyday. It is also a cute addition to my perfume shelf as the bottle is gorgeous.

4. Benefit 'Big Beautiful Eyes' Palette
This eye palette is in my everyday makeup routine, and definitely one of my makeup staples. it contains three eyeshadows, a base shadow, a shadow for contouring, and a liner shadow, in different shades of brown and nude, in order to highlight your eyes. It also comes with Benefits 'Boi-ing' Concealer, which I will be purchasing as a full product once I finish this, as I have yet to find another concealer which covers my under eye bags as well as it does.

5. Topshop Cream Highlighters
I never used highlighters, and didn't really know much about how to use them or what they did, as I never noticed much difference with or without them, but this is a product I got given on my last day at Company Magazine, and since then I have used these most days, and I can see the difference they make to the outlines of my face. I wish the packaging was as cute as other Topshop makeup, but at least these are a quality product, and not just based around the packaging.

Saturday Style Inspiration: Emma Stone

I am in LOVE with this girl. like, genuinely girl-crushing. She can be dressed up, or down, on the red carpet or just grabbing coffee, and she always looks flawless. Her skin is totally enviable, and I definitely need to know her skincare secret.

Looking for pictures, I realised that she has changed her hair colour and style so many times, but I didn't find one I didn't like or that didn't suit her. For a hair coward like me, this is brave! The most adventurous thing I've ever done was grow out my fringe and get a dip-dye, so I don't really think adventurous is even the right word to use.

She also just seems like such a genuinely nice girl. Emma, can we be best friends please? I'll have my people call your people.
