MAC Lovelorn







Another new lipstick to add to my rather large collection. Like I said in my post the other week since having my hair this light I have been reaching towards lighter pink shades. Lovelorn is my latest addition and I love it! It's a beautiful pink (lighter than Chatterbox so I can justify getting two very similar colours this close together) and is a really lovely natural pink. It is incredibly creamy on the lips which I am loving right now as my lips are getting pretty dry with this cold weather! 

No doubt there will be more lipstick posts coming very soon...

Military




Shirt - Zara
Jeans - unknown
Hat - ASOS

This has got to be one of my favourite shirts in my (ridiculously large shirt) collection. It's from Zara and is so soft and beautifully made. It did have different buttons  on the shoulders and top button but I wasn't sure about them so my Mum changed it to these that she found in her button collection (That just makes my Mum sound weird... She keeps spare buttons in case they fall off... She's not that weird I promise)..   

My friend at work gave me these jeans as they didn't fit her anymore (hello baby bump) and I am over the moon. I've wanted a pair of black waxed effect jeans for ages so when she offered me these I was extremely happy!! 

I am on the hunt for the perfect pair of leather trousers so if anyone knows where I can get a pair let me know!

Also if any of you lovely people are going to the ASSYA London Blogger event on 6th November or know anyone who is then let me know :)

Mac Morange







I have been lusting over this lipstick for ages! Almost 3 years I think and God knows why I have only just got my hands on it! I LOVE IT! I've mentioned before my love of orangey lipsticks and this one has bumped its way to my all time favourite orange! It's so creamy and moisturising on my lips. Oh just look at that colour? You can see I'm smitten with it. Can you be smitten with a lipstick? Maybe I'm just going too far... Oops.

I'm caught up in love, and I'm in ecstasy






Top - ASOS
Jeans - Primark
Hat - Primark

Can you believe this hat was only £7 from Primark? What a bargain! It's basically the same as the one Zara had out last year! I'm really hoping they bring it out in a berry/ maroon shade. How perfect would that be? 

This is pretty much my favourite kind of outfit... Stripy top, Skinny jeans and a hat! Yes I am wearing those Primark jeans AGAIN but I seriously cannot get enough of them! Primark is on point right now ladies so I recommend a trip to your local one asap.

Mac Chatterbox





Since going this blonde I've been reaching towards lighter shades of pink lipsticks as I feel it suits it a lot better. My latest purchase is Chatterbox from Mac. It's from the Amplified range which personally I love and it's super creamy, pigmented and stays on my lips for a decent amount of time. It's a lovely shade of pink that I feel will suit all skin tones and is perfect for those who are not into a bold lip but still want a bit of colour. 

Are there any Mac lipsticks you think I need to add to my (already ridiculously large) lipstick collection?

Winter is coming






Dress Minkpink
Coat Minkpink
Hat ASOS

Err how cold has is suddenly got? Winter is coming!! (Come back GoT I miss you). Although I'm still not ready to put my tights back on yet! For now I will keep warm in this beautiful Minkpink coat. It's SO warm and super soft... although my step sister did ask if I was wearing a dead sheep... but yeah I'll ignore that one! This dress is also from Minkpink (it is pretty short but I do wear cycling shorts underneath to stop any unwanted flashing). If you haven't already go check out their stuff as it is all BEAUTIFUL and such lovely quality.

It may be cold outside but the sun is incredibly bright! This does help with outfit photos but please forgive me looking like I'm blending in with my wall... especially my hair! I've just got the Bleach London Rose shampoo and conditioner which I'm so excited to try out! PINK HAIR!! I'm sure I'll get bored of being this blonde soon and go back to brown but for now I'm loving how I can play around with colours so easily!

Hope you are all okay lovelies

You've come a long way

Shoes Kurt Geiger


Hello lovelies

It's that girl that hardly ever blogs here. I'm honestly really struggling to find the time to blog as I tend to get home from work at 11:20pm pretty much every single night and by then I am exhausted (As you can tell by my face in these photos!). I am determined to find a way around this though because I really want to carry on blogging and make this into something special! 

Anyway here's my outfit. I got these jeans from Primark and I love them!. I will admit they don't fit as well or feel as comfy as my beloved Jamie jeans from Topshop but for a fraction of the price I can get over that. 
I haven't worn this shirt in AGES and thought it would go really nicely with my new Topshop lipstick. I'm still not sure how I feel about the dark lips with my extremely light hair though? Hmm maybe it will grow on me.


Speak soon

But the flames couldn’t go much higher

Hello lovelies!

I originally got this cape from ASOS at the beginning of summer for Glastonbury as I thought it would be perfect to throw over what I was wearing when the weather got colder at night. Since then it has very quickly become one of my favourite items in my wardrobe. I adore the colours and it's so easy to throw over my outfits and keeps me nice and snug. I'm definitely going to be looking out for some more capes as they are such a great addition to my wardrobe.


I saw Paolo Nutini last Saturday with iTunes Festival and can honestly say it was one of the best gigs I've been to. It was at the Roundhouse in Camden and it was so intimate. If you ever get the chance to see Paolo (oh look at me on first name terms) you honestly have to! Plus he is so GOD DAMN HOT! I'll leave you with this picture I took from the gig.

Wish List #1 - The Autumn Edit
































 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

Hello strangers! I’ve finally accepted I am home from Bestival and should probably get on with reality instead. I had the most insane time with my friends and I’m honestly so lucky to have them in my life! Festivals are definitely one of my favourite parts of summer and I'm gutted the season is over! Bring on next year! 

Anyway back to what you’re here for…

1. I've already stated my new found love for trousers on here and when I saw these beauties from Zara I knew they had to be mine. Perfect to dress up or down and still feel comfy!

2. These boots are exactly what I've been searching for! Oh that chain! 


3. As much as I love the summer I find it so much easier to dress when the weather gets coolers. No more worrying about how much flesh is on show and worrying about what I eat  (HA like that really happened anyway). I love layering up, (and getting to eat as many burgers as physically possible). This coat would be a perfect addition to my wardrobe. Camel coloured coats are definitely my fave.

4. How incredible is this Zara fringed jacket? This will be mine.

5 & 6. I really need some help deciding between these two bags! I love the colour but cannot decide what style I want! 

Hope you are all well! I'm off to see Paolo Nutini tonight with iTunes Festival and Foo Fighters tomorrow... maybe I'm not ready to accept reality yet. 

Have a lovely weekend!

OOTD

Skirt Marks and Spencer

Can you believe this skirt is actually from Marks and Spencer? My Mum got it for me as a little pressie and I'm in love! I love the print and love how you can dress it down with a simple black tee. 

Another pair of Kurt Geiger shoes. I actually have these in tan as well as I couldn't decide on which colour I preferred. I did have the intention of returning one of the pairs once I had decided but my Mum told me to just keep both... Okay Mum if you're going to encourage me to shop then I don't have a problem with that ;)

Dreaming

Kimono Primark
Bag Primark
Hat ASOS

Yes it's that Primark kimono again! I seriously love this bad boy despite the comments I constantly get about it looking like I'm "wearing a night gown". Plus I'm a real girl so I do outfit repeat (SHOCK HORROR).

Another all black outfit from me... At least the kimono adds some colour though. Hats are permanently attached to my head currently as my roots are in serious need of sorting out. I'm just far too lazy and poor to sort this little issue out so I will stick with my hats. I'm still on my hunt for silver/ lilac hair so once my roots are sorted I'm going to get seriously on to the toning to the perfect shade... my inner granny is forever trying to escape. 

Have an amazing bank holiday weekend lovelies!

Mac All Fired Up






I honestly cannot believe I haven't properly reviewed this yet on the blog. It is my favourite lipstick and I wear it so often. Its from the retro matte collection from quite a while ago but it is permanent so you can get your hands on it all year round! 

As it's matte I do definitely recommend prepping your lips first (I use a Lush lip scrub and pop a tiny bit of my Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm on first and let it sink in... If you use a more glossy formula balm then the lipstick wont sit right on your lips). I would say it lasts a good 4/5 hours before the colour begins to fade. It fades quite naturally on your lips and when this happens I just pop a little bit of whatever lip balm I have with me on my lips and it revives the colour so you don't have to reapply yet. I can drink A LOT of cups of tea and this beauty still looks in tact... The perfect lip product in my opinion...

I'm a sucker for a bold lip and this is the perfect bright pink shade that's easy enough to wear day or night. LOVE.

One Hundred


  







Jeans Topshop
Rings Regal Rose

First off I just want to say how grateful I am that I've reached 100 followers! This is so exciting as it't my first proper milestone so I'm mega chuffed! Big kisses all round. 

Anyway back to the outfit.... 

CHECK OUT THESE BOOTS! Aren't they dreamy? I'm completely in love with them and can confirm they are super comfy even after 10 hours plus of wearing them... I'm a sucker for a tan boot! 
I saw this Monki top on the ASOS website and was drawn to the unusual pattern. I'm normally a stripes kinda gal but I couldn't resist buying this (plus it was only £15 so it was ridiculously cheap).

For some reason the quality of my photos has dropped since uploading them to blogger and now a couple look blurry... Anyone know how to stop this happening? 

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend
