Something you didn’t know about me!

Good Evening!

So Today I decided to tell you all a little bit more about me! Well, one thing in particular and it is that a few years ago now I got my first sewing machine, and I taught myself how to sew clothing!

Now I am nowhere near perfect and I definitely have a lot more to learn, but recently I unboxed some of my old materials and thought I would give it another go!

This is what I made…

This is a pastel purple two piece consisting of a halter neck bralet and a mini skirt.

Like I mentioned, I haven’t used my sewing machine for a few years now so I was unsure as to whether I would make anything of substance, but I was actually really chuffed with myself!

What do you think?

I feel like this looks like a legitimate outfit so I am pretty buzzing to be honest 😁!

Would you guys be interested in seeing more of my creations? Because if you are let me know! I would love to show more 🤓!

Thank you to all of my new followers and for all of my returning followers, you mean so much to me!

Good Night and Lots of Love

My Makeup Progress 🤩

Happy Hump Day People!

It is one fine day in the UK, the sun is shining and I am feeling positive!

One reason for this is because I just compared two of my makeup looks, one from last month and one from yesterday and I’m like WHATTTTT! Haha I know modest. But legit I’m so happy with how much I have improved in such a small space of time!

I have been letting you guys know about my cut Crease dramas, but the past week has involved me miraculously improving on my precision and I’m literally loving life.

Practice really is the key to being successful in anything in life. I also realised that my makeup photography game has upped too! Unbelievably both of these photographs were taken with the same camera. My iPhone 7+ to be specific. I legit thought the camera quality was at fault in the first photograph but I was clearly just taking rubbish photos 🤣!

I can still see a lot of areas that need improving, like my brows sorry people but it’s nice to reflect on the progress I’ve made so far!

What do you think!?

Makeup Monday: 100% GLAM

Hey everyone!

Holla at all of my new followers! Seriously love you guys!

It’s Makeup Monday and I’m pretty excited because if you have been following my makeup Monday’s you will know that last week I wasn’t all that happy with the look I produced! But it is a new week and I am feeling great about this one!

Tadaaa! So yeah I went FULL GLAM! I loved working some glitter into the eyes because it just makes you feel like a princess.

I also used a little more blush than usual to really make my features pop.

I blended my eyeshadow from pink to purple to blue and added matching pink glitter to the inner lid. I also used some of the pink eyeshadow on top of my lipstick and added gloss so I could get the colour match on point. Slightly odd but it works haha!

I look slightly dewy which wasn’t something I was planning on, I’m more of a Matte with Glow gal but hey!

I hope you like this one, and if you do let me know in the comments below! I would also love to know which colours/themes you would like to see more of!

Style Saturday 😏

Good Afternoon bloggers!

It appears that the UK is experiencing a bit of a heatwave the past few days and I’ve been taking full advantage of it!

Including adding some colour to my outfits!

I actually bought this outfit from DEPOP a long time ago, if you’re not familiar it is an app on which you can sell items new and old via your smart phone! I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it (because obviously the seller had the colour match on point) and snapped it up for something silly like £10!

I wore it on a holiday a few years back and completely forgot about it!

I did feel a bit self conscious wearing something so bright but sometimes you just have to think oh well and go for it don’t you!

What’s your go to summer colour?

Let me know in the comments below!

A Festival Lovers Dream 😍

I come across many new brands daily on instagram, but it takes something really special these days to catch your eye. And I’ve been bewitched by the stunning OUTCAST CLOTHING 😍!

Honestly, their pieces are stunning and I’ve adequately named this post because their stock is sparkle heaven!

Honestly their festival wear is to die for:

Their instagram @__outcastclothing is phenomenal, equipped with videos of their most sparkly numbers, I’m literally in love!

I’m not even being paid to say this folks I just legit think they’re awesome 😂!

They also sell things that are just as beaut but don’t have the specific label of festival wear…

So pretty 😻!

If you’ve got a festival coming up then swing their way!

My Husband is Cool: Full Set Music Video

Hey everyone!

So if you’ve been following me for long enough you will know that 1: I’m married, and 2: My Husband runs an awesome YouTube channel called Kie for King 👑

I am really excited about his most recent music video because I think the song is awesome and I make a cheeky little appearance!

His video editing skills are insane and each one brings something slightly different to the table!

So if y’all have a hot minute check out the channel and let me know what you think! Not unlike blogging, YouTube is a really hard nut to crack so if any of y’all could take the time out to watch just one video that would be amazing!

And if you do have a YouTube account then subscribe! 😍!

That’s all for today!

Lots of Love

Boujee on a Budget

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!…

DIY: Body Lava 🤩

Hey everyone!

If you’re anything like me, then you love a highlighter, and you’d also love a body lava if you could afford one 😒!

So I came across such a simple hack on the internet that I just had to try it for myself! (Would love to insert credit here but I saw the video on Facebook and can’t seem to find it again!) So today I’m going to show you how to create your very own two ingredient body lava!

First you will need a small container, it doesn’t really matter what you use for this part it’s just down to preference! I used an old perfume refill bottle for mine!

I filled this bottle with my main ingredient: Baby Oil!

Once I was happy, I picked out a highlighter powder that I wouldn’t mind scraping a little, because this is what you will be adding to your baby oil! I chose my beaut Primark Highlighter palette!

I used the shade glimmer first as you can see by the scrapes haha! I also used the rest of the shades but in a much smaller quantity!

When you’ve finished your scraping, carefully add the mix to your container!

Then SHAKE IT LIKE A POLAROID PIC BOO!

And you should end up with something that looks like this:

How much highlight and what shades you use are completely down to you, it’s your lava so play around with it and see what you think!

My advice would be to start off with a smaller amount of highlight powder, mix it with the oil and then add more until you are happy with the glow it produces!

Here is a video of me pouring it on my skin 😍!

I am in love!

Life Update, and My Makeup of The Day!

Good Evening!

How has your day been? I had a lovely afternoon in Birmingham town centre with my family on what was a fine sunny day, which included lunch so you know, life is good!

We then met up with some more of my family to have a pink gin in a pretty beer garden!

I have been trying to take a more positive and thoughtful approach to life recently and in light of this approach I have decided to have a go at completing my psychology degree! So providing student finance let’s me carry on, I will be proceeding with that in October!

I went kinda full glam today with my makeup and I was really happy with the look, although the heat made it feel a bit heavy on my face,

So if the sun is shining tomorrow, I’ll be having a makeup free day and taking in some of those rays 😻!

I’m not sure if you guys are interested in these kinds of posts from me so I’d love some feedback!

Let me know what you’ve been up to recently, or ways that you keep positive vibes flowing!

As always thank you to all of my followers for following me! If you’re new here there is plenty of room for more and I’d love to get to know you so hit that follow button! You can also find me on Instagram @lollyhm.fashion
