Red Lips. Blue Eyes.
Morgan, Red Lips. Blue Eyes.: "Preventative skincare is real, and something to think about if you're in the 25 to 35 range if you haven't already." Morgan reviews products from Nivea for preventing premature aging, here.
Aney, Allure Of Simplicity: "The trend as of late has been oversized boxy knits, so I've been all over it. I love the two I have from Joe Fresh, but this one is definitely more spring appropriate — a little lighter in comparison and more versatile." Read more about Aney's cozy look, here.

Head to toe Le Château
Fashion & Beauty Inc.
Annie, Fashion & Beauty Inc.: "If you're looking to add some flair to your look through your accessories, tie a pashmina around your bag. I love this pale pink pashmina from Le Château, because it is feminine, but also incredibly versatile." Read more about Annie's look, here.
How to hydrate oily skin
Jane, Daly Beauty: "One of the issues those of us with oily skin have is that despite the oil, our skin still gets tight and dry. Often in an effort to control oil and rid ourselves of that shine and large pores, we cleanse, exfoliate and tone our skin to death until it's stripped. Then our skin is oily AND dry." Jane shares her top tips and products for keeping oily skin properly hydrated, here.
Simple in black
Sophie, Smitten Sophie: "Black has always been one colour that I come back to. It's my safe colour, because it requires little effort to pull a look together." Find out more about Sophie's look, here.

Kayla, Short Presents: "Bio-Oil can be used for makeup removal, cuticle conditioner, soothing skin after shaving, as well as a face and body moisturizer as well reducing the appearance of scars and stretch marks over time." Read Kayla's full review of Bio-Oil, here.
