Sporty Mesh.

Saturday, September 27, 2014

Skirt - Topshop
Top - Topshop
Jacket - Tesco
Bag - Topshop
Shoes - Converse 
Watch - Michael Kors
Bracelet - Links of London

Firstly I want to apologise for the poor quality of these photographs, my sister and I took a trip to Hayling Island, and my camera battery died, so my iphone had to do. 

I was shopping the other day in London on Oxford street, so of course it was a must to go into Topshop, where I fell in love with this mesh skirt. I love that is has longer mesh than the underskirt, you can fully appreciate the mesh detail and the edgy look it gives to any outfit. 

I paired it with a simple white crop tee, to go along with the sporty look. I'm also wearing my trusty high top Converse's, I think this is a perfect look for during the day, but the skirt can also be dressed up for an evening look. 

My leather jacket is actually about two years old, but it was a must for my outfit especially as the very cold and windy beach. I have recently updated my leather jacket for this winter which I'm sure will be featured on my blog soon, so keep a look out. 


Slogans & Lace.

Monday, September 15, 2014

Top - New Look
Skirt - Miss Selfridge
Shoes - New Look
Watch - Michael Kors

This outfit is totally out of my comfort zone, but here's to trying new things eyy?

I saw this skirt and just had to buy it, even though I have nowhere to wear it. I love the two sections of lace it really makes the skirt different to any others and adds so much detail to a simple outfit. I decided to pair it with my trusty slogan tee. I live in this t-shirt, it is only a casual tee from new look but it is such a nice fit. I'm also a sucker for the slogan, (hopeless romantic over here). 
The top makes the skirt look more of a daytime outfit, perfect for a lunch date with the girls. 


Friday Favourites, Mac Lipsticks.

Friday, September 12, 2014

Mac has been one of my favourite make-up brands, for as long as I can remember.

Picking my top favourites out of my collection was a massive struggle for me, so I started with which ones I wear the most and broke it down it different seasons so there is a massive variety in colours. 

Modesty  ●  All Fired Up  ●  Media  ●  Vegas Volt  ●  Amorous  ●  Hot Tahiti

This is one of my favourite nudes of all times, I always go through the struggle of finding the perfect day to day nude. It is impossible to find one I love just as much as modesty. It is a peachy toned nude so compliments many skin tones, it is highly pigmented too which is something I always look for in a nude colour. I definitely recommend this nude if you are on the search for one.

All Fired Up
A very bold and out of my comfort zone decision to purchase this one, I'm not a huge lover of pink on my lips however I was on holiday in Tenerife in August, and this colour did not leave my lips. It is a matte colour which is my favourite finish, so colour didn't look to in your face. It is such a rich fuchsia when I say rich I mean deep pink when applied. 

Media definitely has to be my go to autumn winter colour, it just really compliments my pale skin in the colder seasons. It is a really deep red, kind of a red wine colour (just you can't get drunk on lipstick). I have to admit I thought it was going to be a lot darker, but once on it soaks into your lips and becomes a gorgeous dark red. 

Vegas Volt
Another perfect summer shade, orange. Last summer I tried many orange shades from various brands and this was the one that stuck with me. It looked slightly daunting to me on the shelf but my hand kept reaching out to the shade. The best purchase ever, it is fabulous on.. not too much orange at all. It really is like a pale orange and raspberry colour mixed together. 

I find myself also reaching for this colour in autumn, as it is a lovely rich but pale purple, (I know, awful description) but it honestly is. The purple tones really come through when applied but it is a lovely pale shade. It is a perfect alternative for autumn winter if you are not bold enough to go with Media. It is also a colour which can take you through day and evening.

Hot Tahiti
This is a lipstick which needs a lot more recognition for being amazing. I am a girl who lives in fear of bright red lipstick as I just don't think they suit me, so I always look for different shades of red. As Hot Tahiti is a glaze finish it really makes a difference leaving the red really toned down and glossy. It really compliments the red shade of natural lips and gives them that little bit extra for winter.

I hope you enjoyed my favourite 6 mac lipsticks, I just wanted to share with you some of my favourite shades and help you a little in finding the perfect shade for you. 

If you love finding out about new products or reading reviews on trust worthy products, then head over to my best friend Beccas beauty blog, be sure to follow her to & show her some love. If you're students like us then you will adore the make-up bargains she comes across. I for one am a complete lover of her blog, not because I'm bias but because I adore beauty as much as her and she's always making me want to purchase everything she blogs about, which is a good thing (I guess).


Monochrome monday.

Monday, September 08, 2014

Technically the post title lies.. in my world it's monochrome all day everyday.

but for now, it is monday and yet again I am wearing monochrome (shock)

Top- Topshop
Jumper- Topshop
Trousers- Topshop
Shoes- Primark
Bag- Miss Selfridge 

I am a huge fan of the fluffy jumpers which were a huge fashion piece last year AW, here I am wishing the love carries on into this year as well. I already have my eyes on the co-ord from miss guided, go check it out if you love these jumpers. 
These trousers for me are a massive 'not to sure' I love print trousers but I never have the body to pull them off. As I am curvy they make my legs look ginormous. However these Topshop monochrome print  trousers have officially changed my mind, they are such a nice fit as they feel like a legging material but more structured and thick (perfect for autumn chills).
My love for this bag in unbelievable, as I was totally gutted I missed out on the Zara clutch similar to this, I made sure I purchased this Tres Chic clutch from Miss Selfridge straight away.


Check Mate.

My favourite time of the year has arrived, AUTUMN.

I cannot wait for candles, hot chocolates, wooly scarves, autumn clothes, halloween, bonfires.. My idea of Heaven. 

Scarf- Primark (Last Year)
Top- Primark
Leather Jeans- Didis Boutique
Boots- New Look
Bag- Primark
Necklace- Tifftany & co

As you can tell I'm all for autumn clothes, not for autumn colours or colours in general. 

I love this outfit, it's perfect for my style for autumn. Having a really simple plain outfit means I can accessorise with scarfs, boots, and bags. This scarf was from last years season in Primark and I couldn't wait to get it back out of my draws. Using the scarf as a cape is perfect to wear on days to hot to wear a coat as the scarf can still keep a lot of heat in. Having the leather jeans add a bit of texture to the simple outfit, I had been looking for a pair for ages and I was lucky enough to be given a pair at Bloggers fashion week by the lovely Didi's Boutique, So Thank-you so much, I am in love. 

Everyone go and check out Didi's Boutique they have a wide range of clothing suitable for any age and shapes.
