Designer Sunglasses at Tesco Opticians!

Summer, summer, summertime (summertime) calls for new stunnerz, and as it's our duty to make sure all our pals are well informed on the best stockists we gave Tesco Opticians designer sunglasses range the once over. Did you know you can earn Tesco Clubcard points on purchases, AND boost your vouchers to save on the price too? Nope, neither did I, but good to know right?! As a Clubcard points addict, if I can buy it from Tezzies then I will, whether that's entertainment, electronics, homeware or clothing!

Here are a few cool examples of styles available right now from the Tesco Opticians webby . . .

Ray-Ban's are an obvious choice, they're just so darn shibby and NEVER date which is a bonus. We love these purple Justin's (£90) for a splash of colour any time of year.

These Kangol's are only £30 and totally on the money for working this season's 70's trend! Think Charlie's Angel denim flares, printed shirt and floppy hat combo - SWOON!

For those of you who love a bit of pin-up style, these zebra print Lipsy's (£30) are perf. Wear with a red pout and headscarf for extra sex kitten appeal!

Finally, Carrera are Gwen Stefani's sunglasses of choice, therefore they are also ours! Gwen rocks Carrera aviators (£80) with effortless denim looks and maxi dress style. We love this retro 80's style, and between us, I think they trump the Ray-Ban's for me ;)

I have to admit that I was pretty impressed with Tesco Opticians, definitely a spot I'll be revisiting. What do you think, see anything you could fall for? :)

J - Every little helps!

Rawrgirls Review . . . Arran Aromatics!

This week I've been relaxing in style with Arran Aromatics. Founded in 1989, Arran Aromatics has developed into one of Scotland's best loved brands with a worldwide following, and once you try one of their uniquely fragranced products it's easy to see why they are so popular!

I was gifted three products to try; After The Rain Bath & Shower Gel (£12), Feel Good Formulas Lavender & Black Pepper Mineral Muscle Soak (£9) and Perfumer Wild Gorse Candle (£20) - to the bathroom! . . .

The 'After The Rain' fragrance is one of the Arran Aromatics big hitters, inspired by founder Janet's desire to capture the unique fresh scent of her Arran garden after a rainstorm. It's described as an irresistibly fresh fragrance to make you feel awakened, cleansed and rediscovered. It contains essential oils of Lime, Lavandin, Mandarin, Juniper and Cardomom and blends citrus top notes of lemon with rose, musk and precious woods to form the heart and base notes. The gel is also enhance with Pro Vitamin B5 for skin condition. 
Basically, I am a fan. It really is like a summer shower in a bottle, energising but calming all at the same time. It wakes me up in my morning shower and relaxes me in my evening bath, bizarre, but I'm not arguing! I'm also very keen on the pure clear liquid which makes a beaut filter for a good sunset, as you may have seen on our Instagram ;)

Arran Aromatics review

Whilst the bath and shower gel is all mine, the mineral soak is good fun for everyone. Cleansing, healing and exfoliating sea salt packed with essential oils of Lavender and Black Pepper combine to leave skin glowing and toned, with a stress busting fragrance to boot. Tim and I are pretty hooked on this stuff, and we're usually big advocates of the XXL bubble bath, but it feels so good to just lie in a hot bath of clear sweet smelling water and chill out to the scent. Can I also say that it's a bargain at £9, I was expecting this to be at least £15-£20! The packaging is gorge and it would make a bargainous gift for any bath fan!

Arran Aromatics review

Finally, the Wild Gorse luxury scented candle - the perfect accompaniment to bathtime bliss! The scent is warm and sweet with a teeny hint of floral (my dad actually thought it was some sort of vanilla), complimenting the mineral soak perfectly. Each 30cl candle has a burn time of up to 35 hours, and on it's first run I got a bit carried away and let it run for about 5 hours straight, yet it is still perfectly even (no pesky wick valleys) and has hardly reduced. £20 may seem expensive for the size, but this is from the luxury Perfumer Collection range hence the premium price. Arran Aromatics also do the Arran At Home and Essential Collection candle collections where you can pick up a candle of the same size for £10-£12 if these are a bit out of your budget.

Overall, fine holiday fun, two very enthusiastic thumbs up! 

If you like the sound of these products, why not enter to win a selection of travel products from the Arran Aromatics range on their blog here? The competition ends on Sunday so still plenty of time to get your entry in - race you there!

Win 1 of 3 £100 Giftcards with the all new George At Asda Bromborough!

So one of my local superstores, Asda Bromborough in The Wirral, has recently had an overhaul of it's George section and I was invited to have a look around! It's really spacious and well set out, making it much easier to spy all the new styles, which is totally what I set out to do . . . 

The Holiday Shop is in full swing with plenty of beach and festival looks to keep us all in sunshine mode this summer! 

For us girls, it's all about the globetrotter inspo this season with my fave look being the Marrakech collection, which basically could've been modelled on Tara's summer wardrobe! Bold patterns in exotic oranges and mysterious blues on lightweight, easy to wear fabrics are easily paired with our staple denim shorts and skinnies for totally #Georgeous weekend wear! This £16 kimono is already a fashion mag darling, and it's obvious why. We'll take two!

Maxi dresses and palazzo style jumpsuits are also in the mix, with these two styles being my standout picks. I'd team both with some gladiator style sandals and a straw hat for a breezy beach bar look.

Beautiful detailing of metallic buttons and sparkling embellishments on two perf Marrakech colour palette examples, this time on cute blouses. Why not bring a bit of summer into the office and wear these with a navy cotton skirt or rolled up chinos?!

And the embellishments don't stop when you get into the shoe dept, check out these flats! They make it easy to rock the jersey basics without spending a fortune on accessories.

Finally, I got lost wandering the swimwear section. Ughhhhh, why am I saving for a wedding and not going on a beach holiday this year?! Everything is so darn cute, and I love how the styles cater for us busty ladies with most pieces, including this this adorable nautical/floral one, hitting up the E/F cups!

If you're local to the store, you have to pop in and have a look. A little bird told me that the new in collections were hitting the shelves as of yesterday so if you're quick you can grab some of these pieces before they sell out!

To celebrate the Bromborough store's new look, George At Asda are generously giving three of you a chance to get a new look too with a £100 giftcard - whoop! Entry is by Rafflecopter and you know the drill by now, blog post comment is mandatory and social media entries are optional to rack up the points . . . GO!

Good luck guys, it's time to get #Georgeous!
