Fashion Friday: Orange 🍊

Good Morning everyone! Hello to my new followers, and welcome back if you’re returning!

Today is Fashion Friday and I wanted you to bring the colour to this one. One I don’t often wear at that!

Orange, I know it’s a pretty bold statement but there was something cool about putting a blazer on over a dress!

Both of these items are from River Island

Dress: Click Here

Blazer: Click Here

These colours just scream holiday, and it kinda makes me sad because I’m not going abroad this year 😭!

I love the tassel detail on the dress, and of course the asymmetric design adds more interest to the overall look. The blazer adds a touch of sophistication and means that you could easily wear this outfit for an evening meal without getting too cold!

What do you think? I would love to hear from you so let me know in the comments below!

Have a wonderful day!

Boujee on a Budget

Happy Thursday everyone!

I am really watching what I spend lately and when I say lately, I have been for quite a long time!

1: Because I have a growing boy that needs new clothes more than me!

2: Because I am planning to go on two holidays next year and I’m only gonna do that by being sensible this year!

That being said I decided to have a mooch around Instagram and see what websites are coming through with some prestige pieces that won’t break the bank!

So let’s get to it!…

Fashion Friday: Badd

Yeah I legit called this outfit bad, don’t care what you think this outfit makes me feel bo$$ so I thought I would just go for it!

So one great thing about this outfit is that it is comfy as hell and still manages to be stylish so that’s got 10/10 right off the bat.

Another great thing about the crop and joggers is that it came in at under £20 at Boohoo

I am loving all the different camo shades you can find at the moment because I feel like the typical khaki shades have had their day to be honest.

This is the first time I’ve worn joggers for style and I really like the look to be honest!

Hope you like it! I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below! 💕

Makeup Monday: White Liner, a Beauty first!🤩

Good Morning! Happy Monday to you all!

I am excited about this post. I am reallllllly excited, because I feel like I have stepped out of my comfort zone with my makeup and done something a little different!

I did a makeup haul recently and I was on the hunt for one item in particular. White Eyeliner. And indeed I found a White Liquid Liner in Superdrug for an amazing £3… I mean what a price.

I am a black liner gal through and through. So white was a whole lot different to what I’m used to but I am so happy with my results!

I’m literally in love with this look. It’s my favourite to date. In terms of application I would say you have to go over the white a lot more than you do with black, this could possibly be to do with the price.

Do you like the little dots I put on my nose? I feel like they add a slightly boho touch.

I think the lip colour fits really well with the look as a whole, using my Primark Liquid Lip Kit, again £3.

I actually felt a little self conscious going out like this, mainly because you don’t see many people out and about rocking the white liner. But I did it anyway, and I actually got so many compliments! Lots of people said I looked really pretty! Which was really nice because generally I wouldn’t class myself as pretty.

Primark Beauty Haul 💄

We all know how easy it is to get sucked into the hype surrounding luxury makeup brands 🙄! But today I was determined to rise above labels and head on into my nearest Primark store to see what budget beauty items I could find!

I was so surprised with some of the BOMB things I found! So I put together a lil blog post to show you guys what I bought!

I will be reviewing all of the items in more detail in future posts so look out for those if you wish to see swatches and try on! So, let’s get to it!..

1: Get Lippy Matte Lip Kit

Shade: Flutter Price: £3.00

First of all, what a price for a matte gloss and liner! I quickly tried it out and I love it! I don’t own any other matte glosses though so I don’t have much to compare with! I will 100% show you guys another day because I look rough as hell right now!

2: Eye Candy Metallic Eye Kit

Shade: Bronze Price: £3

This kit looks super gorgeous and it comes with a metallic eyeshadow cream, a matching eye pencil and a precision applicator!

3: Stay All Day, Gel liner.

Colour: Black Price: £1

So this item was reduced from £2 and I have actually ran out of my liquid liner so for £1 I just had to buy it! I love the way the applicator is attached to the lid too!

4: Pure Glow Highlighting Palette

Price: £5

Apparently I can’t resist a highlighter because I couldn’t resist buying some today when I don’t actually need one. I also got over excited and did a swatch so here you go..

From left to right is, Desert, Glimmer, Eden and Firefly. They are amazingly pigmented for the price and I definitely think they could double as eyeshadow!

5: Skin Frost Iridescent glow stick.

Price: £3

This little beauty glows like the packaging so I am really keen to see how I can apply it to my skin!

6: vLuxe Mink Inspired Lash

Style: Gala Price: £6

I mean, say no more these are hands down the most amazing lashes I’ve seen for £6! Like for real, the volume and quality is gorgeous! So I bought two packs! I am so excited to try these out tomorrow!

7: Nudes Stick on Nails

Price: £2:50

Yeah so I grabbed these because they look beaut!

The total price for my beauty haul from Primark came to: £29.50. Which as you know is amazing because you can pay that price and much more for just ONE high end product!

Super excited to try all of this for real!

I was also hoping to buy some foundation or concealer but unfortunately there were no colours anywhere near the shade I needed. They were all way too dark. The foundations had sold and the concealer, although labelled ivory, the sticks definitely looked more ‘soft beige’ to me! So I passed on that part of the experience!

I hope you enjoyed this blog post and I would love to hear your thoughts!

Makeup Monday 08: Cut Crease on the Horizon!

Holla hollaaa 🙂

Monday means makeup, and to be honest I had a bit of a bad selfie day 🙄! But I’m super happy none the less because I have seriously improved my Cut Crease game.

I have been watching YouTube videos in the hope of learning a few tips on how to create the perfect Cut Crease. It’s safe to say I have a long way to go as one of the key ingredients to mastering the perfect Cut Crease is practice!

So I shall keep going!

Here is today’s look! Ya’ll know I love the pinky shades. I just feel like warm tones compliment my complexion. I know I have a long way to go to retrieve my eyeshadow black belt ( yeah I just made that up) but I am willing to put the work in so I can’t see why I won’t be a pro this time next year.

Thought I would go for a pink lipstick and matching gloss for this one to keep it fun! What do you guys think? Also I’ll post the link to the helpful YouTube video I watched at the bottom of this post!

What is the best beauty subscription box? UK 🇬🇧

I have been debating on whether to start a monthly beauty subscription box. I never know where to start with tying out new products and I love reviewing anything beauty related, but there are so many subscription boxes out there and they all claim to contain amazing things right?

So I was wondering if any of you who live in the UK have a good recommendation?

These are a few I have been looking at:

GLOSSY BOX

BIRCHBOX

ROCCABOX

Have you tried any of these? I really want to start a subscription but I want to get one I will love!

Lots of Love
