FOTD #2

So this is my second attempt at a FOTD. I got so many lovely comments about my last one, which was so lovely considering I was so scared to put it up. You can read that here. So this look is for when I was going to a bbq at my friends house. 


Products used:
- Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in 120
- Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
- MUA Eyebrow Pencil in Blonde
-  Rimmel Scandleyes Mascara in Black 
- Natural Collection Blusher in Pink Cloud
- Maybelline Baby Lips in Hydrate

So this was a really natural summery look which was quick and easy to apply. This will be my final FOTD for the summer season and I am looking forward to creating some Autumn looks.

OOTD and FOTD #1

So this is a big first for me. If you have been following my blog for a while then you may of noticed that I don't really include many photos of myself. This month I have set myself the goal of including more of myself on my blog, from more lifestyle posts to swatches of the products on my actual face. So I think the best way to get started would be to do my first OOTD and FOTD. If you follow me on twitter then you will probably of seen that I recently celebrated my boyfriends birthday and with that came the chance to dress up for a birthday meal with his family. 

OOTD:


Playsuit- New Look- £16.99 and can be bought here
Necklace- Present from a friend in America
Shoes- Primark- £12

I also wanted to apologise for the red knees, never do your makeup whilst kneeling on the floor, haha.


FOTD:


Foundation: Maybelline Fit Me in shade 120
Concealer: Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
Powder: Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Transparent
Blusher: Natural Collection in Pink Cloud
Bronzer: Maybelline Dream Terra Sun Bronzing Powder
Eyeshadow: 17 Wild Metallic Cream Eyeshadow in Wild Nude and Lavish from my MUA Undress Me Too Palette
Eyebrows: MUA eyebrow pencil in Blonde
Mascara: Revlon Lash Potion Mascara

A *Few* Weeks in My Shoes #4

Hello! It has been a few weeks since I have done one of these but I decided that I would wait and do a big one full of all the things that have happened in August. August has been a really great month for me and probably the best month of the year. 


1- August meant that I was finally free from exams and school, which meant I was free to spend as much time with my friends as possible. We've had so much fun on nights out or just hanging out during the day. It makes me so sad to think we are all heading off in different directions in a few weeks.

2- This month also saw my amazing boyfriend turn 19 (arghhh soppy I know). He is so great and deserved to have an amazing birthday. He puts up with being dragged round shop after shop whilst I swatch product after product so it was nice to spend some money on him and have a nice night out with his friends.

3- If you follow me on Twitter then you might have seen that I received my A level results in August. I got an A, 2 B's and a C. I was so pleased with what I got and that also meant that I got into my 1st choice uni, so in two weeks I will be moving about 3 hours away from home.

4- After receiving my results and getting what I wanted , it meant that I was able to throw away all of my work from the past two years. It felt so good to get rid of it all. Although I have loved doing my A levels, it was one of the most stressful two years ever and I'm glad its over.

5- Wooooo holiday. I was lucky enough to fly over to Spain for a two week relaxing holiday. It was filled with swimming in our private pool and eating nice food. It gave me the chance to relax and catch up on my fashion magazines in the sun. I loved every minute of it and was so sad to come home. Bring on next year!

6- When I arrived back , it meant that I need a urgent catch-up with the girls to find out what I had missed. We had a super nice dinner with a few drinks and I got the chance to wear some of my holiday makeup purchases.

I hope you enjoyed seeing what I have been up to in the last month. Although I didn't want August to end, I am excited to see what great things September will bring.

August Favourites

August has been my favourite month to date. So many great things have happened. My blog celebrated it's 3 month birthday and I also reached 50 followers. You can enter my 50 followers giveaway here. I also celebrated getting into my first choice uni after gaining the A level grades I needed. As well as relaxing in Spain for a two week holiday. When it comes to things I have been loving this month, there haven't been too many things. I have a few beauty items and a couple random items. I would love to know what you have been loving this month so if you blog and have done a post on your August favourites then leave me your links in the comments below. 


Primark Tangle Teaser- £1.50 : I bought this whilst I was on holiday in Spain so it's something that I really have only been using for the last couple of weeks of August. My hair was getting so tangled from the chlorine in the pool and my hairbrush that I had taken with me wasn't really doing much to help. When we were shopping I happened to come across this tangle teaser in Primark and as it was only £1.50 I couldn't not get it. It's so good and leaves your hair feeling really soft and completely without any tangles. It also it a super cute heart shaped design. 

Next statement necklace : I was bought this a couple years ago by a friend and I found it at the start of the month. I have been loving wearing this with a plain boyfriend style t-shirt. It makes outfits look so much more interesting and the cream style means it goes with almost everything. 

Maybelline Baby Lips in Peach Kiss- £2.99 : I have been really enjoying all of the Baby Lips this past month but the one that I have been using the most is Peach Kiss. You can read a more detailed review and also a review of the others here 

Barry M Gelly Nail Paint in Blueberry - £3.99 : This has been my perfect summer colour. I love the gelly nails paints, they are really long lasting and leave a really nice shine to your nails. They usually last on my nails for about 5-7 days. 

Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon in Orange Punch - £7.99 : These are so amazing. They leave your lips feeling super soft as well as being really long lasting. There is only 4 shades to choose from at the minute but the 4 shades that they have are all so good. Orange punch is the most perfect summer orange shade. 


What have you been loving the past month?

Autumn Style- 3 Ways to Style Skinny Jeans

Hello, I just wanted to start this post of by saying how is it September already? This year is going super fast and I can't believe that in about 2 weeks I will be heading off to start my first year at uni. I was looking back over some my posts and I noticed that I had never really done a skinny jeans fashion post, which seemed really crazy considering the name of my blog. So today I have created 3 different autumn looks which feature a pair of black skinny jeans in all of them. I have gone for a casual look, day look and night look. I hope you enjoy.
