Brit Awards Inspired Makeup

Hey Guys!

Happy Friday to you all! So these past few weeks have been pretty awesome, with London Fashion Week, NY Fashion Week, the Grammy's and of course the Brit Awards. All have played a massive part in contributing something extra to the fashion and beauty industry and today I want to share a makeup look that I found pretty fun to recreate from the Brit Awards. 
If you watched the Brit Awards and didn't just watch Madonna falling down the stairs on repeat (guilty as charged) then you will have noticed some of the amazing faces that graced the stage, one of which being the beautiful Rita Ora. She wore stunning dark smoky eyeshadow, making it the stand out feature of her makeup with a simple nude lip. So I recreated this piece for today's blog post...

Brit Awards Inspired Makeup


For this makeup look, I made the eyes the standout feature, just like Rita's, and kept everything else to the very basics, using my Urban Decay Foundation because, what else would I use? The whole makeup recreation was pretty simple despite the first thoughts of it being very time consuming.

"Do It Yourself" Fashion: Ripped Jeans

Hey Guys!

Happy Friday to you all! So guys, it hasn't even been two months yet and I'm head over heels with this blogging malarky! I wouldn't be enjoying this as much is it wasn't for you all reading, all 2K of you! Yes, I've reached over 2K views! How the heck did that happen?! I can't thank you all enough.
Anyways, for this post, I thought I'd do something a little different. I have so many people asking me, 'where did you buy your jeans?!' then fail to believe me when I tell them I ripped them myself. So today, I am going to show you how to create very cheap and very simple, custom made ripped jeans. I give you...
DIY Fashion: Ripped Jeans


I was happily surprised by the results that came from such simple materials and little effort, and pretty darn chuffed that so many people thought they were store bought! It's a nice feeling knowing that you didn't have to splash out on a lovely looking pair of ripped jeans and even better knowing that you are able to keep your favourite pairs of older worn out jeans and revamp them! I know that's my favourite part of doing this fantastic DIY trick.

Spring Trend Predictions

Hey Guys!

It is scary to think it is almost Spring time! Blink and Winter is gone, but lets not worry. As much as I know we all secretly love hibernating in our less than trendy knitted jumpers and cozying up with our fluffy socks on, times are quickly moving on. It's almost time to say goodbye to our cuddly friends and say hello to the season of Spring in style. Don't get me wrong, I love my knitted jumpers as much as the next person but the thought of warmer weather, fresh flowers and brand new outfits over powers my sad addiction to wooly jumper dresses. Numerous magazines and my fav fashion bloggers have been clueing me up on the trends to prepare for this Spring and I'm excited to share them all with you! So without further ado...

Spring Trend Predictions



There are far too many trends arising for this Spring that I simply could not fit them all into one blog post! So, I've decided to organise this, despite my out of control excitement to share them all with you! I've picked my favourite trends and also ones I feel are pretty varied so that if you don't like one of the trends then hopefully there is another one to your taste!

Get Ready With Me - party edition

Hey Guys!

So this Friday I attended a party which I was extremely excited about and with all good parties, the best part is always the ability to splash out on a new wardrobe without anyone asking questions so I grabbed this chance with both hands! I bought a whole new outfit, including brand new opaque tights which always seems to be so difficult! Apparently shops fail to sell tights in such a pale colour, but I did end up purchasing a fab pair of ladder resistant tights eventually. 
But since I fell totally and completely in love with this look, despite my struggle finding tights, I thought I'd share it all with you in a 'Get Ready With Me - party edition'.

GRWM - party edition

I have been so excited about this outfit and couldn't wait to share it! If you follow my twitter you'll know I've been more than thrilled that floral prints are said to be coming into fashion this spring and that makes me a very happy girl! If you haven't guessed already, I adore floral prints. Personally, I feel that they look great with everything and can glam up any outfit effortlessly and can also do the complete opposite. The reason I love them so much is because there is no labels pinned to floral prints saying they're formal or they're casual. You can rock a floral print on any occasion. And if you need another reason to love them, the aura of class and elegance they radiate is just unreal.

"No Makeup" Makeup

Hey Guys!

Happy Friday to you all! It's been a pretty hectic week this week but I've managed to squeeze in a few extra blog posts for you all including my Boohoo Haul which you guys all seemed to like a lot! I'll definitely be doing more hauls for sure, but this week I've attempted to answer a question that a lot of people continuously ask me. How do you do your makeup so natural? Well, the answer is...

"No Makeup" Makeup

Natural eyeshadow with minimal lips

So please excuse my Anna and Elsa pillow in the background (I didn't buy it, I swear). 
I just adore this makeup. It isn't completely unnoticeable, but it isn't completely in your face. It seems to fit the occasion just perfectly and in my case, the occasion for this particular makeup is usually school or everyday routines. This makeup is my go-to makeup when I'm in a hurry or simply cannot be bothered with the callings of society. It takes minimal effort and minimal skill but looks red carpet worthy when you see the finished results.

January Favourites

Hey Guys!

Happy February to you all! Time seems to be flying past now, I mean I can't believe that's January finished already! Soon I'll be typing out my February Favourites complaining about how it was just January. 
Anyways, I thought it was about time I done a January Favourites as I've been so inspired reading everyone else's and there is a few new products I've been using which I want to share with you all as they're pretty damn fantastic. I know I'm three days behind the end of January but better late than never! So here it goes!

January Favourites


 Ok, so I've basically been sticking to what I know when it comes to my makeup and haven't really branched out on anything new so far this month but I do have a few new items with the occasional beauty product to share with you all. I'm really struggling to find new makeup products that are better than the ones I already own. I'm definitely a scaredy cat when it comes to trying and testing new products, but I may make that a belated New Years Resolution as I'm certain there are so many more products I could get my hands on that I just haven't found yet. If you know any or have any recommendations please do share!
