KSI STYLE | THIS & THAT (MINI UPDATE)



Just some things I like right now. I really love the jumpsuit...guess where it's from? George! By Asda. It's currently on sale for £10. I've wanted the Moschino belt for a long time, I'm waiting for a good deal so if you know of any...let me know. :-) Hope you all had a lovely week. I had a horrible accident last week which landed me in A&E early Monday morning as it progressively got worse over the weekend. I haven't been able to walk properly since.  :-( I'm on a high dosage of medication which is causing me to sleep alot and when I do try to walk it prolongs the healing process, so you can imagine my frustration!
Everything I had planned this week for my blog went out the window, my main  thing being vlogging. :-( God is good and I can't complain, I'm alive and well, healing slowly but surely and I didn't have to go into theatre which I was dreading. This accident has made appreciate being able to do everyday things like walk. Sometimes we take these things for granted. Be grateful for life and everyday you're breathing.

KSI SKINCARE | I'M LOVING IT


Illustration by me for ksisoooofly

I thought I'd share some of the products that I'm loving at the moment and why. I'm always trying new products, but I do have my basics that I stick to. One thing I will mention is washing my face morning and night makes a big difference, my face really brightens up. Also as annoying as it sounds drinking alot of water helps too. Anyhoodle here they are, some skincare, makeup and hair products. :-)

TEA TREE FACIAL CLEANSING WIPES. Buy it! You won't regret it! You get 2 packs for 99p! I really enjoy these facial wipes I use them daily, they're the best I've ever used, all other ones I've tried seem to burn even Johnson's Baby believe it or not. It's great for taking off eye make-up especially if you're a heavy mascara wearer like me. The product claims to be specially formulated to help cleanse and refresh your skin by removing excess dirt, make-up and other skin impurities helping to promote a clearer complexion. My skin definitely agrees with Tea Tree my skin feels so clean and refreshed after every use. I sometimes get lazy with washing my face at night and these wipes are great for giving you that really clean feeling.

SEBA MED LIQUID FACE & BODY WASH. I started using this face & body wash last year when I couldn't figure out what was going on with my skin. I read for sensitive skin on the packaging and was convinced it might work for me. :-) I was correct! At the time I didn't know I had eczema on my face which was season related my skin was dry, flaky and itchy with small little bumps. I'd never experienced this before and my usual eczema cream wasn't working because I was actually using diprobase. Lol More on that later...
This soap free product claims to be especially formulated with mild wash active ingredients Sebamed Liquid Face & Body Wash is particularly indicated for the cleansing and conditioning of sensitive and problematic skin. It's PH value of 5.5 strengthens and stabilizes the ecological balance of the skin's acid mantle promoting it's barrier function and resistance to harmful environmental influences. An effective prophylaxis against blemishes and other skin disorders. A sophisticated care complex, of vitamins, allantoin and the active moisturizing Pentavitin ®, protects the skin from dehydration. This rich blend of moisturizers and gentle tensions cleanse your skin without  irritation. The skin becomes perceptibly smoother and suppler during cleansing for a unique after washing feeling.

JOHNSON'S BABY BEDTIME LOTION. OMG I love this stuff! If you have trouble sleeping sometimes like me use this before bed. I use this and the Johnson's Baby Bedtime Bath & Oil. I always feel amazing and have a good quality sleep. It contains lavender, and lavender as we knows aids in relaxing and soothing etc.

POND'S HYDRONOURISHING CREAM. If you've been following my blog for a while you'll know I'm quite fond of Pond's moisturizers. Pond's Institute has developed it's Pond's Hydronourishing HN cream with Hydro-elastine and Vitamin E in order to:

• Improve skin moisturisation.
• Nourish helping to obtain a softer and smoother skin.
• Help to protect and strengthen skin by fighting against the loss of essential lipids.

The truth is in the title "Hydronourishing" this is definitely one of my go to winter moisturizers, it absorbs right into my skin. I love to use this after cleansing with my Rio Sonic. :-) My skin stays moisturised all day whenever I use this especially around my nose which is my "dry patch" area. I definitely recommend if you suffer from dry skin.

IDOLL 360° MASCARA. Simply the best! Whenever I fork out on expensive mascaras they always end up being dissapointing but the bargain buys end up being amazing. Why is this? I don't know...Lol I purchased this from Poundland and it gave me that false lash effect with around 2-3 coats. Yay me! :-)

BETNOVATE CREAM. Life saver! This cream is a life saver if you suffer from random outbursts of eczema like me. I think mine is stress and definitely seasonal related. You can only use a tiny amount as over time it thins out the skin it's a very potent steroid cream. I can have the worst eczema ever and as soon as I use it the next day it's gone! This is prescribed to me by my doctor. This is the cream I thought I was using when I was actually using diprobase. No wonder it didn't work .Lol

BARRY M LIP GLOSS IN MILKSHAKE. Try it! I promise you'll love it and understand why I want Poundland to bring it back so I can stock up!

SALLY HANSEN INSTA DRI. Normally I would be using Sally Hansen's Mega Shine or Diamond Shine as my top coats but I'd ran out and didn't want buy anymore as I still had brand new unopened top coats in my stash. The Insta Dri line was one of them. To my surprise it's just like the others except it dries a bit slower and is not as shiny.

ORGANIC MOISTURIZING VITAMIN E OIL. I've been using this for years but I don't think I've mentioned it on the blog before. With every moisturizer or lotion I seal with this oil afterwards.

GLORIOUS MUD FACIAL MASK. This is another product that makes me feel like I've been to the spa. I use this weekly as part of my facial routine in the morning or evening. Beauty Formulas Rejuvenating Glorious Mud Deep Cleansing Face Mask is formulated with 100% pure clay to help remove dirt and excess oil from the skin's surface. Absorbs impurities, unclog pores and removes dead skin cells. Non-Comedogenic so it will not clog pores. Lanolin free. Leaves skin softer and smoother for a fresh healthy glow. When I first used it I applied way too much, I thought more meant a deep treatment. Lol This product helped calm the eczema on my face when it was at its worst. It leaves my face feeling so clean and smooth. If you're someone who has an oily t-zone I definitely recommend this as it helps calm that too. I purchased this from Savers but I've also seen it in Poundland and the 99p Store. It's a great cleansing mask for just £1, just remember less is more you don't need alot to get the full benefits of the treatment.

ARGAN OIL HAIR TREATMENT. Soft! Soft! Soft! My hair feels amazingly soft whenever I use this product I apply it to my damp hair when airdrying/blowdrying. Argan Oil Hair Treatment has been specially formulated using oil from the fruit of Argan Tree and enriched with Vitamin E, a natural anti-oxidant to nourish and rejuvenate dry and damaged hair. This concentrated formula will help protect the hair whilst adding shine and reducing frizz. It leaves my hair feeling soft and silky it also makes a great detangler giving my hair that advert shine and taming those frizzies which is a plus if you're an avid airdryer like moi, and it smells lovely. Ive used this whole line and it's fantastic I especially love the conditioner for cowashing (I highly recommend). It's a great line for jus £1. As with most products a little goes a long way. If you want silky, soft, frizz-free, shiny hair definitely give this a try. You'll love it! :-)

KSI HAUL | UNIFORM STOCK UP


There's no denying I have an odd amount of love for mens denim shirts...❤


I've started collecting my uniform...my denim shirts that is! I have quite a collection, maybe I'll post it on here. Lol Its all I wear in the summer...seriously! A denim shirt, top and bottoms.
Like most of my clothing I prefer my denim shirts oversized and with that in mind I always get the men's fit as I find the women's to be too fitted for my liking. This one is from Primark, they always have great denim shirts in the men's section.
I also picked up the LA sweater (motivation Lol) from there too!
There's a clothing store not far from where I reside, can't remember what it's called as I only just discovered it even though I've been walking past it over a year. Lol
Ever had one of those moments? :-) Anyway it has amazing knitwear for really great prices! I picked up this one and I love it, it's so loose, relaxed and non bulky. :-)


The LA top is my new favourite.❤ They have other cool sweaters in the men's section. Don't forget to check it out if you go.


Love the simple knit pattern, easy to dress up or down. 

Barry M does a great lip gloss called Milkshake, it looks like a solid candy pink colour but when applied appears transparent with a slight tint of pink, it's so moisturizing I love it. I found it in Poundland on one of my random shopping sprees and didn't stock up. :-( I haven't seen it for a while but I'm sure they'll bring it back. I know I can get it on their website but I refuse to pay £4.50 for the same lip gloss I can get in poundland. Lol
I've noticed that lip balms don't work for me anymore and I end up with really excessive dry lips but when I use lip gloss my lips are smooth and silky. I'm revisiting an oldie but goodie brand I've loved before...Gabrini.
I got it at my BSS along with the other gloss which is similar and just £1. What are some of your favourite lip gloss'? Do you have any recommendations? Hope you all have a great weekend! :-)

KSI STYLE | SOME THINGS...



Just some things I'm liking at the moment.

KSI LIFE | IT SEEMS THAT WAY...


It seems that every other post I do is always about me dreaming of LA...like I said it's motivation, so don't mind me...Lol

So what have I been up to? You ask! Can I just say I feel so uninspired and unmotivated to blog, as much as I try I just feel bleh! Don't know what it is but I don't want to continue being a blogbandoner! (YES! I made that up) Anyhoodle as you know I was sick for a while, I haven't been sick like that for ages. I texlaxed on 1st of Feb 2015 after a 6 month stretch, it became too much and I was getting lazy. I could've gone longer if I really wanted to but when I get lazy, hair abandonment is in full mode so...
I don't wanna do a length check yet so no pics. I want to be utterly surprised on my next length check and hopefully this time I can stretch for 9 months??? 10 months? 1 year? Lol We'll see...


Burberry Biker at Primark you say? Could it be?
I picked up this jacket from Primark about a week and a half ago so it's definitely still available. I absolutely love it,on the hanger it didn't look like much but when I tried it on it became something special. :-) I purchased it a few sizes bigger to give me that oversized relaxed look I enjoy so much. While scrolling through #BikerJackets on Instagram I came across these and noticed the unbelievable similarities. JOKE! I'm fully aware of what Primark is about. Lol But seriously I love Primark, but only when everyone's not wearing it! Haha Obviously the quality differs vastly but I was still rather surprised and pleased.:-)

My love for blazers, biker jackets any kind of structured jacket has made a comeback. I used to wear a really simple outfit but would always pair it with an amazing jacket/blazer it was just what I liked and it suited me. Now I've found what I love I'm sticking with it. Alot of trends don't suit my shape and height but I know what works for me now. Do any of you dress this way? You know what works for you so you stick with it? Some may find it boring and safe but I find it fantastic and comfortable I'm all about being comfortable.

Talking about being comfortable...I've been having problems with my metabolism and Green Tea and all my usual stuff wasn't working so I went back to basics with my hot water and Lemon, best decision ever! I don't know how I managed to forget about it..drinking it first thing in the morning around 6-7am really gets things moving. What do you all do to kick start your metabolism? 

Happy Hump Day! I hope you're enjoying your week thus far...
2 days to the weekend woooohooooo!  :-)
