My Favourite Trends

Hey y'all,

Before I get to the actual blog I wanted to give a quick apology for not having posted in so long! but I'm back now and ill try to post regularly!

So yeah, there are three trends / items of clothing that I am loving right now, here they are!

1. BRALETS! I absolutely love these and think they look great with high-waisted skirts and shorts, I only wear them with high waisted stuff because I'm afraid to show all of my stomach but if your brave enough go for it!!!

A bralet that I think is gorgeous and plan to buy one day is this Topshop bralet, It's just a plain washed out bralet but it goes with so many things!

Denim Zip Bralet 

I also would wear it with this beautiful maxi skirt from New Look, because of its peach coral colour it looks great with washed out denim! :)

Pink (Pink) Tall Exclusive Coral Maxi Skirt | 245868370 | New Look

2. OMBRE SHORTS, this probably my favourite trend because, you get two colours in one pair of shorts!! :p well yeah these are my two favourite ombre shorts :)

This is from H&M and I love that it goes from a kind of neutral brown to a vibrant pink!

The next one is from Miss Selfridge and I think it would look great with a dark coloured top to contrast with the lightness of the blue on top :D

3. The final trend is DIPPED HEM DRESSES I think this is a really subtle and sexy way to show a bit of legs this summer :p

I love this dress from New Look because of the tropical print which is really in this summer!

White Pattern (White) Tropical Print Dipped Hem Dress | 253116719 | New Look

I think this would look great with these heels from Topshop because even though clashing prints in, I think its nice sometimes to just keep it plain with the shoes with such a vibrant dress!

Well yeah thats it, I hope maybe that help you with your summer wardrobe! :D

How I Style: High - Waisted Shorts

Hey y'all

I got a request for a 'How I Style: High - Waisted Shorts' video a while ago so I thought it was about time I made it, enjoy :D

The first way is with a vest top with minimal detail, this is for a really casual look :)

This is for the days when its warm enough to wear shorts but you want to wear a long sleeve top just to keep your arms warm :p 

Because the first two styles are for dark coloured shorts, i thought I'd show one with light coloured shorts :) I like to pair this with a dark coloured top to get a slight contrast :) 

I hope that was a bit helpful :D

My Favourite Lipsticks

Hey y'all

Today I'm just gonna tell you guys about my three favourite lippies and why I love them :) 

With No Flash
With Flash

The above lippy is an NYC lipstick in 410 Plum Rum :) It actually applies quite sheer, it just has a red tint to it so I love it for that 'just casual' look :D You can get the reddy tint in just one swipe which is great if you just wanna quickly apply some lipstick

With No Flash

With Flash

This is a MAC lippy in the Amplified range and its called 'Morange' :D You've probably heard a lot about it because it is raved about a lot by bloggers but yeah I really love it because of its bright orange colour, perfect for a bold summery lip :) It is also really long lasting but I recommend wearing a lip balm underneath or else it kinda dries out you lips

With Flash

With No Flash

My top lippy is another MAC lipstick but this time its 'Taupe' which is in the matte range, I have already spoke about Taupe in another post, which you can read Here. Its a really great nude for me :)

But yeah those are my top lippies :D

DIY: Open Shoulder Shirt

Hey y'all

I thought I'd change up the posts I normally make and post a DIY video :D Basically, I'm gonna take an oversize shirt and transform it into an open shoulder top, Enjoy :)
This is the shirt that I started of with, its actually a mens shirt :p I got it from a charity shop, for free :D 

I marked out the part of the top that I wanted to remove in pencil :)

I had to redo the line in red pen because I couldn't see the pencil :P but yeah I just used ordinary scissors to cut a messy circle out of the shoulder of the shirt :)

And thats it, its really simple to do :) Here's a few pics of the finished product :D

My Top 5 Beauty Favourites

Hey y'all

I'm just gonna go through my top 5 beauty products that I like to use on a normal day, Enjoy :D

My 5th favourite beauty product is my ...... Avon Professional Kohl Eyeliner :) Its basically a double ended stick with one end as a regular eyeliner pencil and the other is a kohl eyeliner. I actually only use the normal eyeliner end but I love it because it just gives such a rich colour :D

My 4th is my Ruby Eyeshadow Palette, its got this BEAUTIFUL hot pink colour in there which I actually use as my blush :P But yeah when you apply it with a good blusher blush it will give you some gorgeous cheeks :D 

My 3rd favourite is my Aknicare cream, I have actually already written a blog which talk about this product! You can read about it HERE :) and if you want some more skincare tips check out my friend Annie's post: Clicky Here :)

A close second is my MAC lippy in the colour 'Taupe' I just love the colour and the way it feels on my lips :D It is a matte lipstick but it definitely doesnt dry out my lips :) It is a kind of browny redy colour and is a really good nude for my skintone  :)  

And my top beauty product is....... Sudocrem :D now some people may be thinking: 'Huh? Isn't that a kind of baby cream', well it is but thats not all it can do :) I use it at night on my face whenever i feel a spot coming and then over night this just sorts them out, it works wonders  :D 

I hope that was helpful! :D

How I Style: Bodycon Skirt

 Hey y'all

Well I think style blogs like this are done better with pictures so ill just post a picture for each with a little comment underneath, Enjoy :D 

 The skirt is quite plain so I'm pairing it with a bright top to spice up the outfit :)

This is a more businessy kind of way to wear a mini skirt because of the blazer

This is a just a casual, kinda slouchy way to wear a mini skirt

I hope you guys enjoyed this post :)

My 3 Favorite Skincare Products

Hey y'all

Well I think everyone wants to have clear and spot free skin so I thought I'd share with you guys the three ways that I maintain healthy skin :)

The first way is this GORGEOUS face mask from Lush, the one I have is called: 'Angels On Bare Skin' and it is like an angel :D. You just apply it all over your face and wash it off straight away and your skin just feels so soft after using it 

Another product I use is the Garnier 3 in 1 Wash, Scrub and Mask. As the name suggests you can vary the way that you use it, though I just normally use the wash or the mask :p This really helps you get more even skintone :)

Lastly I use the Aknicare oil in water emulsion, I have combination to dry skin and this cream works wonders for me :) I actually never get large spots (I get little ones sometimes but I have a special solution for that, I'll make a blog about it later) but yeah the Aknicare solution prevents me from getting large spots so I really recommend this to anyone with acne problems
