Taking it to Night


Hey everyone!

I have a video all recorded on how i took this daytime look and spiced it up a little for night but like a shitty blogger/youtuber i've run out of time before going on holiday to edit it...hopefully i'll get around to it when i come back in 3 weeks but until then here is a photo of the look:


And what i used to change it for night:


I basically added a lot more definition - defined my eyebrows with a pencil (i think from 17), added a deeper colour into the crease (a gorgeous burgundy shadow from the Sleek Storm palette), some gel eyeliner (Maybelline), contoured (Sleek Contour Kit naturally :P) and added a touch more colour with a bright blush (Topshop Neon Rose) and lipstick (Sleek Papaya)!

Hope you liked the look and i'll be onto that video as soon as i'm back...

Day to Night Outfit



This is what I wore for a night out in London - I was going during the day and then meeting friends for dinner and drinks so i wanted to be smart casual!



This H&M top is so cute - it's all about the details. Buttons down the back and lacy Peter Pan collar!


Unfortunately due to the snow i was forced to cramp my style with this oversized cardi rather than just wearing a leather jacket like planned!


Top: H&M (old)
Cardi: H&M (old)
Jeans: American Apparel Easy Jeans - £64 (ouch)
Boots: Dorothy Perkins (present)

I'm pretty sure everyone in the UK is ready for Spring now - luckily for me i'm off to California on Thursday :D

Long Time No Blog

Hey Everyone!

Sorry it's been so long - i'm surprised anyone still follows me if i'm honest! I've been a hopeless blogger !



Long story short i just didn't have the time or the inclination to blog anymore - but now i'm away on placement and i'm living alone (not really, in a shared house but away from my friends, family and boyfriend) i thought i'd give it another go!

So look out for a few posts and videos from me over the next few days!!

Skin care - Superdrug Hot Cloth Cleanser

I picked up this cleanser after I ran out of the No 7 version - at £5.99 it was considerable cheaper and now I've been using it a few months I also think it is better!

I massage a small amount all over my face and then buff it off with hot water and the provided muslin cloth to take my make-up off every night! If I'm lazy and just use a wipe then I definitely pay for it! It leaves my skin super smooth and clear and as an added bonus, it smells of cocoa butter! The only downside to this cleanser is that you can't use it to take off eye make-up as of it gets in your eyes it really stings!

Definitely a staple for the foreseeable future!

P.S. a tube of this lasts ages!

Ebaying


Moving house = sharing wardrobe space with the boyfriend so i've had to have a massive clothing clear out!

I'm selling a lot of stuff on my ebay so have a little browse - the above dress is currently on there! Everything is as good as new or actually new and mostly a size 10-12! I'm starting all my items at 99p so you're sure to find a bargain!

I'll be loading more stuff over the next couple of months so will keep you updated!

Feel free to share the link :P
