L'Oreal Paris True Match foundation review

at May 20, 2015 0 comments
For about a year now I have been trying to find a good foundation that is suitable for me and after A WHOLE YEAR I think I may have found the right one. 



Recently I bought the L'Oreal Paris True Match foundation in the shade Ivory (N1). I'm pretty sure that this was their very lightest shade. Unfortunately I haven't done very well with foundations, every foundation that I try always have a bit of an orange undertone and they just don't look very nice on me. 

However, from the moment I started using this one, I was really impressed! It's very blend-able, which made me super happy because it doesn't turn out streaky! 

Usually I don't wear foundation at college because of the rush in a morning but because this foundation is fairly easy to blend and is easy to put on, I've started to wear it at college. Make-up makes me feel happy and when I wear it to college, I just feel a little bit better.

Overall, I think this foundation is very good and so far I don't have any complaints! 

Thank you for reading, I really appreciate it!

Cannes Film Festival fashion faves

at May 20, 2015 0 comments
The annual Cannes Film Festival has been happening and on the red carpet there have been a lot of well-dressed people but these were definitely my favourites! If you're not quite sure what the festival is about it's just a film festival that shows previews of different genres of films from all around the world.

Lupita Nyong'o
Ok, so, it's been made apparent that no matter what Lupita is wearing on the red carpet, she's going to look amazing! Well, at the Cannes Film Festival she wore a gorgeous green dress that made her look like she was flying. Her hair also looked fabulous! It was in a beautiful bun that people are referring to as a 'fronut' (Afro donut). Everything about her outfit was just perfect and simply stunning!

Charlize Theron
Usually I don't like yellow dresses, I don't know why, I just don't I guess. However, Charlize dress made me eat my words completely. She looks gorgeous and I don't think I'll ever say that I dislike yellow dresses ever again. Much like Lupita's dress, it was very light and floaty but quite fitting in the top section. Lovely!


Fan Bingbing 
Oh my goodness I nearly died when I saw this dress! Flowers on dresses and flower crowns are two of my favourite things but this is just stunning. I love pretty much everything about this dress. I honestly couldn't take my eyes off it!

April Favourites 2015

at May 08, 2015 0 comments
Fashion
Topshop clear coat 
I haven't actually bought this but whenever I see this item in the shop, I get really excited. There was a time when I was in Manchester that I even called it the best fashion idea since skorts. I still stand by that and I shall tell you why... If you are wearing a really cute outfit and you want to show it off but it's a little cold outside then this clear coat with a bit of shimmer is perfect! Literally perfect! Everyone can see your mega cute outfit and you won't feel the breeze. 

Music
The Good Kids
These guys are pretty awesome! They make YouTube videos displaying their band but they also do a lot of live performances. Unfortunately, they are situated in America so I've never had the opportunity to see them. I shall link their band twitter below. Currently they are working on some new things and, personally, I am very excited to be able to hear it.

Fall Out Boys new album 
This album is literally my go-to. I've been a fan for a long time and I would say that this is one of their best. My favourite song off it is probably Uma Thurman but I'm sure I'll change my mind tomorrow. whenever I'm feeling down or stressed out, this album 

New camera 
Diana F+ instant camera
So I got a new camera! I was in Manchester and decided on investing in a new camera simply because I felt like it. After putting it all together I felt really excited. I haven't gone out and taken photos yet but I'm planning on going out very very soon. 

Thank you for reading, I love you all

Alexa Chung - IT (book review)

at May 04, 2015 0 comments
I've never wrote a book review but this book is too good to miss. This was going to go in my April favourites but I think I may have a little bit too much. So why not just write a whole review about it!

In case you're unaware, Alexa Chung is known for her fashion and her work with Vogue magazine. Many people - including myself - see her as a fashion icon and aspire to be able to piece together an outfit that looks effortless. 


IT is about her life and her fashion icons. Reading this book a great way to find out who Alexa is. The whole book contains witty anecdotes of what she likes. My most favourite is around a quarter way in and is about eyeliner. 

If you're not all into reading but Alexa Chung is someone you idolise then this book will be just fine for you. There isn't many words and most pages have pictures on them anyway. The pictures are some of my favourite photos ever. I would honestly use them as posters.

The best thing about this book is the layout. It is incredibly easy to read and will probably only took a couple of sittings to read this entirely. The language also isn't difficult to understand although there were a few things I had a google. But hey, that's okay.


Overall the book is just cute. I love it so much and would read it over and over again. I recommend it to anybody who loves fashion. 

Thank you for reading,
