Eyeshadow palette: Urban Decay Vice 3

I'm not very experimental when it comes to make-up, i've found what works for me and I stick to it. For the most part, I am quite happy with that.

Then I scroll through instagram..

I'm constantly in awe of what people are able to achieve with make-up and I want to do it too. I've bought so many different tools and palettes over the years, that just in the cupboard gathering dust.

Well, that was until recently.

I've started experimenting, constantly pausing youtube tutorials and trying to move out of my neutral colour palette a lot more.

I may not be very good at it, but i'm enjoying learning and trying something new.

Wrap shirt: Warehouse.  Midi skirt: Topshop.  Stud court shoes: New Look (Sold out)(Similar).

Do you have a particular item of clothing that you tend to buy a lot of?

For me, the one item that bring me joy is the classic white shirt. I cannot tell you how many I own and how many I continue to buy. I own a myriad of styles from v neck to round neck, from satin to cotton, from longline to cropped and the list goes on..

However, I do not own a wrap shirt. But now I do and it makes me incredibly happy!

I see this shirt paired as pictured, or with jeans and sandals on those warmer days.

Welcome to the family!

Face Faves.

Sunday, 3 April 2016


I thought it was about time I introduced a few more beauty related posts onto the blog, as it's something I have huge passion for.

Now, when it comes to day to day beauty, I have finally found a combination of products that work for me. And when you find something that works.. Stick with it.

As a general rule for the day, I tend to lean towards the no make up, make up look.

The Clinique foundation is one of my all time favourites. The colour is such a gorgeous match with a medium but build-able coverage. I do have other foundations that I adore, but for everyday wear, this one wins.

When it comes to brows.. The only think I have to say is.. Benefit Cosmetics.

I'm sure when I say velvet teddy, you all know what i'm talking about. This lipstick has been on everyone's instagrams and favourites line-ups. When I first got my hands on it, I could totally see why. This shade is something of a 'Your-lips-but-better'. And I LOVE it.

What are your favourite go-to products?
