The Brighton Lookbook



Evening all, I do hope everyone has had a brilliant bank holiday! I've spent lots of it brunching, mooching and pampering so feel all nice and relaxed now which is jolly lovely. I also used the long weekend to finally catch up on my blogging and vlogging, which has taken a bit of a back seat to work and busy London life of late and tonight I wanted to share the Lookbook & VLOG I filmed on my Brighton staycation with the boy. There are four outfits along with lots of seaside snippets and places you just have to go and eat so I hope you enjoy and make sure to stay tuned for lots more Meg's Boutique this week!

Are you a Brighton fan?

Monthly Mini Haul: May

Topshop Dungarees // Breville Blend Active // Benefit 'Do The Hoola' // Snooper's Paradise Clubmasters

Welcome back to my new feature, the 'Monthly Mini Haul'! My absolute favourite purchase of May has to be those delightful denim dungarees from Topshop. They fit like a dream, can be styled so many ways and feel like a socially acceptable onesie (aka the dream). I also did lots of shopping in the Lanes of Brighton this month and my new white clubmaster sunnies were found in the corners of 'Snoopers Paradise', which is nothing short of a giant jumble sale of gems. If you like the sound of that, watch out for my Brighton VLOG coming tomorrow #cheekyplug. Moving on to makeup I was kindly sent the new 'Do The Hoola' kit from Benefit, which not only includes the new liquid Hoola, but also has a mirror with my name on- those Benebabes are cuties! Finally, on the lifestyle front we have the Breville Blend Active which has already created a host of feel good fruity smoothies as well as more taste good Oreo milkshakes. At just under £30 I'd highly recommend.

What have you been haulin' this month?

First Aid Facial Radiance Pads


When it comes to skincare, pads and wipes remind me of trying to remove poorly applied Rimmel Mascara and Dream Matte Mousse after school when I had no idea what a cleansing balm or micellar water were. But after years spent steering my skin clear of these pre packaged solutions, they are back and this time they're supercharged to work wonders for the skin.

I've been trying the Facial Radiance Pads from First Aid Beauty for a few weeks now and they've already earned a solid place in my skincare routine. I first bought them as a way of battling the congested bumpy skin that sometimes occurs on my forehead and chin. After being told I needed to exfoliate more to sort this but not wanting to use harsh scrubs, these have been the perfect solution with just enough lactic and glycolic acid to smooth and clean out pores without irritating the skin. They're also brilliant in the brightening department, with licorice root and lemon peel effectively sloughing away those dull dead skin cells to leave the skin bright and glowy. When skincare routines get too long and complex you tend to start skipping whole steps altogether, but a quick swipe with one of these in place of your usual toner at night time and your done. Inner lazy teen Meg is most happy.

April Favourites


I have a little and little late April Favourites for you today. I'm still a bit out of sync with the old schedule after having time off but just couldn't miss out on sharing these gems...

LIFESTYLE // My boyfriend pointed out that I'm spending more on superfoods than makeup right now and it's all down to the cookbook, Deliciously Ella. It's more of a lifestyle guide than list of recipes and I've learnt so much about what my body needs and the best ways to feel great! I've got plans to share my superfood hauls/creations with you soon- the boy will be relieved I'm going on about spirulina and medjool dates to other people for a change...

FASHION // The weather could not be more in between right now. It's not sunny enough for sandals but it's too warm for boots- so I was very happy to find these cute real leather slip ons from Primark to bridge the gap. They were a bargain at around a tenner, have proven themselves to be super comfy and show just the right amount of foot for this silly UK spring to summer weather. Primarni to the rescue!

HAIR // With my penchant for ghds and blonde dye, I'm always on the hunt for seriously nourishing haircare and this Charles Worthington Moisture Seal Overnight Hair Healer has to be one of the most effective treatments I've tried. You apply it before bed to dry hair and then rinse off in your morning hair wash. It leaves my hair feeling super sleek, silky and soft before I've even touched my conditioner and the clear, invisible formula doesn't leave any residue on the pillow.

BEAUTY // I'm not sure I've ever included a beauty gadget in my favourites before, but I've finally found something that really helps my abused nails. After too many gel manis, glued on falsies and nail biting bouts my poor talons have been left prone to ridges and uneven surfaces. Manual buffing has never really helped but Micro Nail leaves my nail surface smooth and shiny in literally 2 seconds. This also makes nail polish look better and last longer so I'd recommend checking it out even if your an angel in the nail department. 

MAKEUP // I already went on about the Rimmel Lasting Nude Finish in my previous post so won't say too much about it now, but I really am head over heels for this fabulous foundation. A flawless medium coverage and satin-matte finish that lasts all day with no caking or patching to be seen. At just £7.99 a bottle this I see myself lovin' this all summer long.
