Hey Lovelies, how are we all? Sorry I haven’t blogged in ages. Since getting back from holiday I’ve just been a bit distant from my blog. And there is nothing worse than forcing blog posts. So I’ve been keeping track of any ideas I have had and am now ready to get back to it. I have been posting to Instagram so I haven’t been completely gone.
GOSH VELVET TOUCH LIPSTICK
Today I’m kick starting my month break with some new beauty products. Lets start with this GOSH Velvet Touch Lipstick in the colour Nougat. Wow, what a really fab lippy. I have quite thin lips so I often shy away from wearing lippy and head towards a gloss, but this dusk pink nude is so nice. I have to admit I have a similar shade lipstick from Loreal, but this one is so smooth and as the name suggests, velvety! It is an A/W make up staple for me, its dark enough to not look odd against my pale-ish skin.
No7 INSTANT RADIANCE
I love love love to highlight and contour. Not as extreme as Kim K but I like to look a bit bronzed and shimmery. These No7 Instant Radiance Highlighter and Bronzing Highlighter are perfect for summer skin and winter skin. The bronzing highlighter is great for when you have some colour, as it shows it off even more with that summer glow. The highlighter is great for brightening eyes and highlighting above your cheekbones. I use it everyday and the results are always fab. Below you can see what they both look like on my skin tone. Shimmering goodness in a stick!
GOSH 9 SHADES- TO ENJOY IN NEW YORK
I really am a sucker for eye shadow palettes. This muted purple hues one by GOSH is so pretty and girly. I love the look of a purple smokey eye and this palette helps me create the perfect day smokey eye for work! The middle 3 colours are my faves they are so autumnal. For £9.99 in Superdrug I think it’s a really great addition my make up collection which does consist of a lot of Urban Decay. This palette fits in so well with my Naked 3 Palette.
Have you picked up any new beauty products lately? Let me know in the comments below, I’m always stalking the make up isles when I go shopping!
Oh! You can find the whole range of Gosh Cosmetics in Superdrug stores or online >here< (this post isn’t sponsored I just really love finding new beauty products).
Hey Lovelies, I’m backkk!!! To gently get back into blogging after being away in the beautiful Tenerife (gathering all my photos for a post that will be on here soon) :) I thought I would indulge in a little wish list/style up post, there are quite a few picks today! I thought it would be wrong to let this dark and spooky time of year slip on by! HALLOWEEN! I haven’t got plans this year, like most years I’ll probably be in, wrapped up on the sofa watching a non scary film (I’m a scaredy cat) in my giraffe onesie. But that doesn’t mean I can’t drool over the gorgeous Halloween inspired pieces that are all about at the moment. Which by the way can easily be styled for Christmas/AW too :) Win win!
ASOS Little Mistress Navy Sweetheart Dress
I love the sweetheart neckline on this dress, also the navy colour is not something you would usually see on Halloween. Pair with some black accessories for a modern take on the Halloween night out outfit.
ASOS Pointed Bow Heels
Bows. Is there really much else to say about these shoes. Okay, so yes there is a bit more to say, how freaking cute are these. Taking a classic shoe and adding a simple black bow at the ankle! Genius!
ASOS Green Beaded Clutch
I really like this emerald-green beaded clutch, pair this with a simple all black outfit as a stand out piece.
TOPSHOP Sequin Panel Pleated Dress
Now, this Topshop dress has been on my wish list for ages, well, the wish list in my head that is! It’s stunning I love the different textures and lengths, this could be a possibility for a work Xmas meal outfit at this rate! I LOVE IT!
ASOS Halloween Embellished Choker Necklace
Talk about gothic chic. This is an extremely beautiful and intricate piece of jewellery, reminds me of the costumes in Underworld! Sophia Myles wore some stunning pieces.
TOPSHOP Webbed Tights
Something a little fun! I am always on the look out for quirky tights to wear to work to snazzy up the uniform, these web tights are perfect for Halloween!
TOPSHOP Red Plunge Jumpsuit
I don’t usually gravitate towards red, but this jumpsuit is so elegant and definitely means business, I’d layer this with a mess top underneath and some black high heels for a vampy evening look.
ASOS Halloween Gothic Rose and Lace Headband
This headband is AMAZING! Gothic vibes all around. This really is a ‘wish’ piece as I wouldn’t know where to start with styling it on myself! Definitely something to look into in the future.
TOPSHOP Halloween Scrunchie
Another fun item from Topshop, I love scrunchies and this Halloween themed one is too cute. Especially when you have to wear your hair up for work this is a nice and simple way to incorporate some of the Halloween spirit into your everyday look.
NEW LOOK Mesh Baroque Tee
This tee is fab for layering, using under a dress or jumpsuit or over a bright crop will revamp any piece of clothing in your wardrobe with a gothic twist.
NEW LOOK Black Lace Sleeve Crop
I LOVE this black lace sleeved crop, I can easily see Wednesday Addams wearing this. This would go really nice with a burgundy miniskirt and Docs.
NEW LOOK Pure Colour Burgundy Lipstick
I can’t wait to go into my local New Look and pick up some of their new beauty range. This deep burgundy red is perfect for A/W and for creating sultry vampy make up to complement a gothic look. It would also look great with very natural make up for a stamens pop of colour.
NEW LOOK Black Faux Fur Trim Heels
These fluffy heels are everywhere, I know lots of other places do them, but New Look are my fave high street store for shoes! They are adorable, with fluff adds a cuteness to them and ultra girly vibes. With pay-day looming they might be making a new home for themselves with me very soon.
I hope you like my Halloween inspired picks, if you like them they are all linked above :) Feels good to be blogging again, I am currently settling back into things. I know I was only gone for round about 2 weeks, but you can’t rush things when coming back otherwise it would feel like a waste of a really lovely holiday and time away. And I am in no rush to let go of the holiday vibes! :)
Hey Lovelies, quite a fun causal look today. I am obsessed with layering at the moment, and this white shirt bright top combo is a must have look! I’m not really one thats goes for lots of colour but this outfit is pretty pop tastic! I think the trousers from New Look made this outfit go from bland to amazing! And… they go perfectly with my Nike Trainers. I got these a few years ago from Office, and I must admit that I don’t wear them that often, I really should! They are really comfy.
What do you think of this outfit? I hope you like it! It would be lovely if you could leave a lil comment if you do, will be something nice to see when I come back from my holiday! Which will be tomorrow! (Which is weird to say as I’m writing this I haven’t even left!)
Hey Lovelies, another day another fab New Look mini skirt. Very mod and very 60’s! I think mini skirts are going to be another A/W staple for me. They go with pretty much anything and can be worn with chunky knits and tights. I picked up this skirt a few weeks ago as at work we had to wear green for the Macmillan Coffee Morning and I wanted something that I could incorporate into my existing wardrobe, as green isn’t a colour you’d find lots of in there. I paired it with this cream high neck ribbed top and a statement necklace. I love this flower power clutch from Primark. To complete the look I wore my peplum textured jacket from Forever 21. I love the ruffles on the bottom of it. So cute and girly.
Hop everyones week has gone well. Look out for my next post which will be on Monday. Quite a bright outfit indeed!
Hey Lovelies, it’s my birthday today!! Yay!! 25! O-M-G!!! I’ve picked out a rather special outfit for today (look out on my Instagram for a sneaky look) but that won’t be on here till after I’m back from my holiday! Today is all about this blue retro mini shirt from New Look. It is so freakin’ cute! I layered this look with all black, a simple tee and a long sleeveless cardigan that I synched at the waist with my buckle style belt from ASOS.
I have a new love for these adorable shoes from Schuh, they are so unique with the cut out triangles on the top, yet the style is really girly.
Hey Lovelies, quite a causal look today. This Love Clothing Coat is so versatile, its so snuggly warm and goes perfectly with some cosy knitwear. This black and orange knit from H&M pops from underneath the oversized coat. I kept the look simple with some blue jeans from Primark, my fave jeans from there. They fit perfectly and don’t look the tightness. Another outing for my new shoes from Topshop, aren’t they the prettiest?! I dug out this back pack from Accessorize as its so big it can hold lots of my rubbish in it, as all my bags have the key things in plus every lipstick I own and a thousand receipts!! And as you can see, this outfit (and the rest this week) as pre hair cut! I will be snapping my holiday looks most probably as this post goes out! :)
Hey Lovelies, I have been growing my hair for so long now, with the aim of having dreamy mermaid hair. Well the dream is over, my hair was a great length but was all tatty and a mess to be honest, I tried my best to make it look nice. But in the end it was just hanging there not doing a lot. I decided to go and get it refreshed. I used to go to Toni & Guy all the time, so I thought it would be best to go there again. I knew I didn’t want to go crazy short, but to me the length I now have it it of course so much shorter than before. And my hair feels so much better for it. I showed Josh my hairdresser a selection of hair inspo photos and he really listened to what I wanted and what my hair is like. The blunt cut is so clean and neat, it has really given my hair a new lease of life. I am now debating getting my dip dye redone or just going for a whole new colour. But that will have to wait till after my holiday. Josh used Label M Sea Salt spray to give it some choppy texture after straightening it. Luckily I have some Label M products already so I can recreate the look myself.
Have any of you ever gone for a hair cut and been truly happy with the result like me? Isn’t it the greatest.
FYI this is the last post for a week anyway that is not scheduled. I will be off on my holiday to Tenerife. I have some posts scheduled for you, and I will be updating my Instagram throughout the week anyway :)
