NEW SKINNYDIP LONDON PHONE CASE

Image
Hello, everybody! Welcome back to my blog!


Recently I got the chance to go to London! While I was there I saw one of my favourite bands - Twenty-one Pilots - for the second time! I was also able to watch the opening act, Bry, who is one of  my favourite singers in the whole world.
The day after the concert, my friends and I went to Covent Gardens! Although it was a very wet day and really rainy, it was still a super lovely day! We decided to go to the Skinny Dip London shop, which looked absolutely adorable, I wish I got photos of the displays to show you guys.
Unfortunately, though, I did not think about doing this post until a couple days after I got back. So there's cry face emojis going all around. This also means that they are no pretty packaging photos! But I did keep the little bag they gave me because it was just so cute.
The phone case I bought is super cute!!! It's gold, so it matches my phone. Although saying that, it does make my phone look more pink than gold.

Trying out new makeup products!!! (First Impressions)

Image
Hello Everybody!!! Welcome back to my blog! 
So yesterday I went to Manchester to try and do some Christmas shopping and while I was there I decided that treating myself was an excellent idea! I'm going to make this post into two parts. In this post, I shall share with you what my first thoughts and in the second I'll show you the look I tried to create.
I haven't really bought new makeup in a while so I thought it would be nice to try and get some things that I could use for autumn. Not only that, I wanted to add to my growing collection of makeup. 
The first thing I bought is an eye shadow palette from Bourjois called Palette Les Nudes. Personally, I don't think I would call 'nude' shades, however, they are natural yet shimmery shades. My first thoughts were that they were really soft! The shimmery shades also don't have chunky glitter in them, which makes me very happy because my eyes are sensitive to things like that. 
Overall my initial thoughts are v…

Night Out Makeup!

Image
Hello, everybody! Welcome back to my blog!
Now, I am not one who really enjoys going on nights out... In fact, the moment I hear my friends suggest it I shriek! I don't drink alcohol so bare in mind that I am completely sober throughout the whole night and I'm usually tucked up in bed by 9pm.
However, on the odd occasion that I do make it out, I enjoy going full glam when it comes to eye makeup. As I said in my previous post about my new everyday makeup, doing bolder and brighter looks has been on my to-do list.


I decided that with this look, a nude lip would look best. I thought it made the look seem a lot more glam and really bring out the colours in the eye makeup,

On my lips, I used my favourite nude lipstick by TopShop called Secretary. I feel like this is the perfect nude for my skin shade and I can wear it with any look.

On my eyes I wanted to use a lot of purples and pinks. I used purple all over the lid and a light pink in the crease to blend that out. I also used a …

New Autumn/Winter Daily Makeup

Image
Hello everybody! Welcome back to my blog! Once again... long time no see. 
Today I am going to be sharing with you what I do for my everyday makeup during Autumn and Winter. These next few months are my absolute favourites when it comes to makeup and fashion!

It's FINALLY the time to wear vampy lipstick shades and to change my eye makeup look... because we all know that I do the same eye makeup look all the time. BUT!! I've been wanting to change it up for a while.  Recently I've been trying brighter and bolder looks, but for every day I wanted something that was like a natural smokey eye. I used the Maybelline The Nudes palette, which I'm beginning to have a love-hate relationship with but that's another story. I used a light shimmery shade all over the lid and then the dark grey and black shades for the outer corner and to define the crease a bit more. 


Recently for my lipstick I've been liking reds and dark purples - because that's what autumn is all ab…

New Skin Care Routine - August 2016

Image
Hello Everybody! Welcome back to my blog!
Now... I have a confession... I've never been able to keep a skin care routine for more than a month. I am that type of person that just gets a bit bored of doing the same routine every single day and so I would inevitably just... give up! 
A lot of the time I would also be using products that weren't right for my skin type and they would make me breakout. Obviously, this made me stress out a lot which, would inevitably just stress me out more because I knew that it needed to get sorted!
Finally... In August 2016, I may have found a skin care routine that works for me! 
While on holiday in Devon, I went to The Body Shop. They were selling little kits of skin care products for different skin types. I think this was such a brilliant idea as there so many people - including myself - that struggle with skin care!

The kit that I was told that would be best for me and my skin was the cleanser, toner and moisturiser that is made with Aloe! I…

Rimmel London BB Cream Review

Image
Good evening my lovelies!!! 
Recently I have bought the Rimmel London BB Cream because it is now summer and I enjoy using lightweight products during this time of year. I have been wearing this for about two weeks now. At first, I struggled to gain an actual opinion on this product; there would be some days where I really loved it, and then there would be days where I felt my makeup looked AWFUL!! 

This product says that it primes, moisturises, helps minimise pores, conceals, covers, smoothes, mattifies, brightens and helps protect. They also claim that it lasts all day. It also has an SPF of 25, which is quite beneficial for this time of year, however, wouldn't be recommended for flash photography.






As it is a BB Cream, this product is incredibly lightweight! I find this to be a positive because it doesn't feel heavy on your face like foundation sometimes does. As I mentioned before, it has an SPF of 25, which has both pros and cons because although it isn't advised for f…

Makeup Of The Day!

Image
Good evening my beautiful followers! How are you all? I hope you're doing well!
Remember when I said that I would write every day in July... well I didn't realise that I had two holidays, so unfortunately writing every day might have to wait for a less busy month!
Today I am sharing with you the makeup I wore today (or much rather tonight). 
As it is summer and the weather has been crazy hot, I decided to go for a BB cream instead of foundation! I used one by Rimmel London, I've only used this a few times so I'm still not totally sure on my opinion of it just yet but I will be doing a review once I have my thoughts gathered. As usual, I used the Lasting Perfection concealer by Collection under my eyes and on any blemishes!
Moving onto eyes! I decided to try and something different today! I used the Maybelline New York colour tattoo cream eyeshadow in the shade pink-gold; this colour is so lovely! It's incredibly pigmented and blends beautifully! In the crease and …

Everyday makeup routine: June 2016

Image
Hellooooo my lovely friends! How have you all been? I have been busy busy busy at college trying to get all my work done. Hopefully, that is all sorted now and blog posts shall resume as normal. 
To try and make up for my mini hiatus, I am going to be blogging throughout the whole of July! I tried to do this last year and failed miserably but this time, I may go about it a bit differently. And by that, I mean I am going to queue some posts and also write through July too.
Anyway! Today I am going to be sharing with you all my daily makeup routine throughout June! 



First of all, I used my holy grail (do people still stay that...?) foundation L'OREAL Paris True Match in the shade N1 Ivory. I then added concealer. My go-to highlight recently has been MUA Highlight shimmer stick.
On to the eyes, I decided to use BH Cosmetics eyeshadow palette. I used a shimmery red shade all over the lid and then a bronzey/orange shade in the crease. It's very simple but I think it looks nice! On…

Bright Spring Makeup look ft. Scandalous Crime by Makeup Revolution

GUESS WHO'S BACK??????
Sooo... I haven't posted - or even wanted to think about posting - in about two months. But have no fear, I am going to tell you why!
I have very bad anxiety and sometimes I let it get the best of me. Every time I thought about blogging, I got very anxious, which ultimately lead to an accidental hiatus. I wanted to tell you sooner that I was maybe going to disappear for a while, but I, unfortunately, have a habit of ignoring these things. However all that is over now and I'm feeling much better. 
I don't want to make any promises but I'm going to try and post once a week. 
Now to the fun part of today's post...
I love Spring makeup looks because I feel like it's the only the time of year that I really take advantage of brightly coloured lipsticks. 
My favourite types of makeup during the Spring and Summer months is no foundation, a pretty highlight, a natural yet shimmery eye look and a bright lip!

Archive by Alexa Chung M&S preview

Image
Alexa Chung is one of my favourite fashion icons. Everytime we see her I am even more impressed! Today we were able to see the new collection Archive. To create this amazing new line she worked with M&S and their design team. 

The whole collection shall be revealed in April, but for now we can enjoy the previews! 
The first thing that caught my eye was this coat inspired by the 1989 Ada blazer, which Alexa then modernised to create this classy number. 
This piece is most definitely my favourite. I have been wearing a lot of dresses recently, and I cannot wait to add this to my collection. As the full collection comes out in April, it will be perfect  for a simple Spring/Summer outfit.




Fashion Wishlist - January 2016

Image
This month I have been a doing a lot browsing around clothing sites and longing for my bank account to actually have the funds to pay for it all. So I did what I do best and I made a list of all my favourite items.
First on the list is this really cute dress from New Look. Recently the only thing that I want to wear is dresses and I only have two that I like to wear on a day-to-day basis, which has left me into looking high and low for cute dresses that I will be able to wear anywhere and everywhere. 
While looking around on the New Look website, I also found this awfully cute dress! These sleeveless swing dresses are my favourite. I also really love the colour. I feel like the colour yellow is going to make many appearences in a lot more clothing stores this year. The last thing I found on New Look is this adorable skater dress. Much like swing dresses, skater dresses are another one of my favourites! 
Okay brace yourself for this next one... I found a skirt with pockets. You heard …

December Favourites 2015

Image
Unfortunately December was quite a slow month in terms of favourites. Due to college and reading everyone's blogmas posts - as well as try and get some in there myself -  I struggled to stop and figure out what I was enjoying during the month of Decemeber. Basically, December is just a blur and I haven't got much to offer today.

First on my list is a book! Reading for me is very soothing and makes me calm down from panic attacks because it forces me to focus. My favourite author is Edgar Allan Poe and this month I have read a lot of his work in The Fall of the House of Usher and Other Writings published by Pengiun Classics. My most favourite so far has been The Black Cat.

A few months ago I bought a coat from Amazon just to use for college that could fit in my bag (turns out it doesn't, my bag is smaller than I though). Although, I still love it and this month, here in England I've been able to get away with wearing this coat with just a jumper underneath as it hasn&#…
