I have been seeing tartan everywhere at the moment and I must say, I am loving it and I have been looking at a few things to purchase so I am going to show you what I have found.

The first site I have been on today is Misguided and I haven't been on there for a while but I think it has become one of my favourite websites for online shopping. Not only is everything cheap but they literally have so many nice on trend things. The only thing I hate about the site is everything I want is out of stock in my size which is annoying so I will find myself checking the availability of my items I have placed in my wishlist everyday. I was also watching YouTube videos and a lot of people have been raving about tartan scarfs so the second site I went on was ASOS.

Tartan dress £24.99 here                                                                
Tartan dress £24.99 here

I love these dresses, they would look amazing with a pair of black tights and some ankle boots. The dresses are cheap and I would order them before they go out of stock as I can tell these are going to be popular. I preferably like the green version of the dress better.

Long sleeve tartan crop top £14.99 here                      
Short sleeve tartan crop top £14.99 here

I love these tops. They are very casual and wearable for everyday. They would look amazing with a skirt or disco pants. Love!

Tartan Skort £19.99 here

Skorts are also need on trend and skorts and tartan is a big yes. They look great, unique and can really make a simple outfit look stylish and eye-catching.

Tartan Scarf £16.00 here

Image from ASOS

I have been seeing tartan scarfs everywhere and they look perfect for winter because they are big and cosy. If you don't like the tartan clothes but like the tartan trend you could always wear this scarf. 

Do you like the tartan trend? What is your favourite thing shown here?

What I Got For My Birthday!

So my birthday was on the 14th of November so this blog post is a little late.. but I have been so busy so I haven't been able to sit down and write a blog post till now! Mainly, for my birthday I wanted money for a shopping spree but I also wanted things I have had my eye on for a while so let's crack on with what I got!

Hunter Wellies-  (It wouldn't actually let me access the site for some reason so I can't give an actual link to the wellies I got but they are the shorter wellies in black) As it is starting to get colder in England and I am expecting a lot of rain I needed some wellies and believe it or not I have never owned a pair of wellies before. I wanted the Hunter wellies to keep my feet warm and I am sure I will have to walk to the bus stop when it snowing or when it is really icy therefore I needed some extra warmth and easy to walk in boots! I love how these look like normal boots rather than wellies as I am not a huge fan in the knee length wellies. I got them in the colour black to match whatever outfit I choose to wear.

BaByliss Pro Hair Curling Wand- I finally can achieve amazing curls in my hair! I never used to like curls in my hair however I am getting bored with having straight hair everyday.When I did hair curls in my hair I would use my straighteners however it takes ages as the curls do not look as nice done by myself.. oh how I wish I could have salon finished hair everyday. These curlers are amazing because they are easy to use and give your hair quick perfect curls.

River Island Watch- I have a huge obsession with my watches. I feel naked without my watch(okay that's exaggeration but you know what I mean) therefore I obviously needed another watch. The last one I had from river island had white straps and a gold watch and I wanted a full gold one. I would have liked to have a Michael Kors watch but I think £295 for the watch I want is very pricey for my birthday.

Topshop Joni Jeans- I haven't included the jeans in the picture because I was actually wearing the jeans when I was taking the picture haha! However, the jeans were on the top of my wishlist for a while and I finally got them. I love high waisted things they are so flattering and I literally wear these jeans all the time. I am hoping to buy myself another pair in a different colour.

Other things I got were money for a shopping spree, Primark scarf and midi-rings, 2true lip gloss and fake eyelashes, Topshop voucher, john Frieda frizz-ease, big sparkly bows in silver and pink, black fur head warmer, 3D nail art gift set and big thick thermal socks to wear with my wellies. The presents and money are from my family and I also got a few bits from my friends too.

 I am so excited to spend my voucher and money so I'm sure you will see a few hauls in the future or maybe I could do a winter look book? I could also do a review on the John Frieda frizz ease spray. Tell me what you would like to see in the comments!

Hope you liked this post, thanks for reading!

REVIEW: MUA Cream Blushers

Blushers for me wasn't something I would wear when I was first wore makeup but now I am slowly liking the look they give. These MUA ones are the first cream blushers I have tried. It's best to start cheap to see if you will like them rather than buying more expensive ones however before I brought these I heard good things about them anyway and I don't think you will need to go for expensive ones if you are a budget buyer.

Left to Right
Scrummy, Yummy, Dolly

As superdrug have 3 for 2 at the moment I picked up 3 of these, two of the colours look the same but one of them is just a little less orange. I choose these 3 colours because I thought they would look the most flattering on my pale skin.

These cream blushers have great pigment, they have just the right amount of colour needed to add colour to your face or for a dewy finish. I love the texture of these blushes, they are creamy which blend out easily and quickly making them perfect for 'in a rush' makeup look.

Overall, I am very pleased with these and I would definitely recommend them to anyone. Even if you have darker skin they have other shades to suit you. They have a gorgeous bubble pink colour but I thought it would be too much for me.

Have you tried these? What do you think?

8 November 2013


So, I have been shopping again... oops! But lately I haven't really had anything to blog about (you may have realised) However, I did need a new foundation and superdrug had 3 for 2 across all cosmetics so I kinda took advantage of that. I also went shopping last Sunday where I got my first M.A.C product, you can read about that here and also went to Lush which I have put in this haul for you!


Rehab Shampoo-£5.25
American Cream Conditioner-£4.50

When I went into Lush I was so overwhelmed that I had no idea what I was looking for. I literally looked at everything they had in the store till I was certain that I wanted something that was going to treat my hair. The very nice lady from Lush helped me make my decision on what products to get as I literally had no idea. I needed something to repair my dry and dead hair. She said that the Rehab shampoo would help to bring my hair back to life and add shine and repair my damaged hair and hopefully it does that, whilst the American Cream conditioner would make my hair smell nice(she said it would be almost edible.. haha bit over the top there) as the smell lasts for 6 hours in your hair and it will repair my ends. The American Cream is also good for blonde coloured hair!


L'oreal Lumi Magique Light Infusing Foundation-£10.99
Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer-£5.99
MUA Cream Blush in Dolly, Scrummy and Yummy-£2 each
MUA Power Pout Colour Intense Tint & Balm-£3
BarryM Nail Paint in Berry Cosmo and Cappucino-£2.99 each
BarryM Base Coat, Top Coat and Nail Hardener All in One-£2.99

I picked up the MUA cream blushes first and I couldn't decide what shades to get so I got all 3 that I had in my hand, but it also worked out as it was 3 for 2. I love the shades I got and I can't wait to try out these cream blushes. I also got the MUA lip tint and balm crayon as my friend recommend it to me over the bourjois colour boost lip crayons and said it was much better and cheaper. I also got the foundation I have been wanting to get for a while, I have foundations that I like and am happy with however I wanted to try something new. Lastly, I picked up 2 nail paints in Winter like colours that will be perfect colours to wear this season and a base coat, top coat and nail hardener all in one which I thought sounded cool and wanted to try.


Nivea Essential Care Lip Balm-£1

As the Maybelline baby lips were all so good packaging wise the actual balm did nothing for my lips. The colour and smell of them are great but it ended up drying out my lips. I normally opt for vaseline but I don't really like putting my finger in it therefore I found this Nivea lip balm in poundland which is so much better for moisterising my lips and it is also in a stick form. You can't also beat paying £1 for it.

What is your favourite product I have listed here? Have you tried any? Let me know in the comments!

My Favourite Perfume (At the Moment)

A perfume for me is something that I have to REALLY love otherwise it will just sit with the rest of my un-used perfumes on my shelf therefore the smell of the perfume has to be perfect. Recently, I have been loving wearing perfumes rather than my normal body sprays. I used to prefer wearing body sprays because they were much cheaper and I could spray them on me all day and not have to worry about running out as they lasted forever and were cheap to replace. However with perfumes you can't really do that because they run out quickly. 

I have been using my Rihanna Reb'l Fleur perfume LOADS recently, now I have the tiniest bit left.. see my point about liking body sprays more however I CANNOT cope without this perfume so I will continue to buy it.

When I wear it I get a lot of people smelling me and I am frequently being asked "you smell nice.. what have you got on?" If you have the chance to smell this perfume I would because you will instantly be hooked to the smell. What I love about the perfume is that I can spray in on my top and the next day if I was to wear the top again it will be smelling of the perfume therefore I constantly smell nice. The perfume lasts a long time on the skin too.

I have always preferred the black bottle to the red bottle. The red version is called Rebelle and it has the same packaging but obviously red however the smell just isn't nice in my opinion. There is also a nude version which I need to smell. The price of this perfume is £19 for 30ml. 

Have you tried this perfume, if you have do you also love it? I think this would make a perfect Christmas present, and if I got this as a present I would be happy.

My First Ever M.A.C purchase!

A M.A.C lipstick has been waiting to be purchased by me for a long time now... and that time has finally arrived. 

I went on a cute little shopping spree in Cambridge on Sunday.  The town was super posh and the shopping malls had a good variety of shops.

The first shop I came across was M.A.C and I got so excited. I don't have a store in my shopping centre therefore I was super happy.

After a long time of choosing what finish I wanted, what colour I wanted and umming and urring between Up the Amp and Girl Bout Town I finally decided Up the Amp was the colour for me as it is a perfect vampy colour for the upcomimg cold months.

I thought the colour I would have brought was Creme de nude, however when I was looking at the different colours I decided that I wanted a stand out colour because it is £15 for a lipstick so I wanted something different. This lipstick is an amplified finish and I absolutely love it. I cannot stop wearing it.

What was your first ever M.A.C purchase? Do you have this shade? What is your favourite finish of lipsticks from mac? Tell me in the comments below. Hope you enjoyed this post.

November Wishlist

As the months go on and on so quickly we have finally reached my second favourite month November (obviously December is my favourite) as it is my birthday this month! So I have done my November Wishlist for you.

Chanel Healthy Glow Sheer Powder A £38 powder is not needed when there a good drugstore powders that do the job but to own a Chanel product would be amazing. The packaging is classy and would look great in my makeup collection.

Nars At First Sight Eyes and Cheek Palette This palette contains eye shadows that I would use everyday for natural looks and cheek colours that would be perfect for weekend looks or special occasions.  It has the famous Orgasm blush and Laguna Bronzer. At £45 this is a splurge but would be totally worth it.

BaByliss Pro Hair Wand I never used to like my hair curled but now I love the look. This wand has had my eye on it for ages. It is now £19.99 from Argos which is a bargain!

M.A.C Lipstick in Rebel I don't yet own a M.A.C lipstick so I will definitely be getting one with my birthday money or for Christmas. I love the shade rebel and it is the perfect dark colour for these seasons and it will also add a pop of colour to a plain outfit.

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette This is on my wishlist as it will be perfect for quick and easy eye shadow application for college as I don't have that much time in the morning. Also I love the packaging. I want to join in (very late) with the urban decay palette hype.

Nars Radiant Cream Compact Foundation Since I saw Wayne from gossmakeupartist on youtube do a review on this I have wanted it ever since I love the look that it gives. Still, £28 isn't really on budget it will remain on my wish list.

I am hoping to get the naked basic palette, BaByliss pro hair wand and the M.A.C lipsticks also maybe the Nars at first sight palette as a gift. What's on your November Wishlist?

Mini Haul

So I did a little bit of shopping and I have been trying to save my money however it isn't working that well but I decided to finally buy the products I have been after for a whole. Yet again I am late with all the hyped products but I just had to get the L'oreal cleanser to try out. I can tell this will be repurchased loads!

I also got the Maybelline 24 Hours Colour Tattoo's that I have been wanting for AGES. I got the colours On and On Bronze and Permenant Taupe.

Lastly I got some more dry shampoo which is a much loved product to give my hair some volume to my hair and also to make my hair look nice when it gets a little greasy.

So that's all for my haul, what are products you've been wanting for ages but haven't purchased yet?

I just thought I'd make a quick mobile post on my outfit today. I have changed a summer outfit into a autumn outfit. I love shorts and I had seen people wearing shorts with tights recently and I didn't think I could pull it off but I tried anyway haha...

So as for the outfit I am wearing:

Leather jacket- Minx high street store
Top- Iiver Island cami
Shorts- Miss Selfridge lace shorts
Tights- Primark
Boots- River Island

I hope you have enjoyed this quick outfit of the day. Would you wear shorts with tights this autumn/winter?

E.L.F Healthy Glow Bronzer Review

For me, a bronzer in my everyday makeup routine is essential. However, it can be quite hard for me to find the perfect all over face bronzer that isn't going to make me look orange at all...until I found the E.L.F Healthy Glow Bronzer.

As you can see the packaging isn't appealing but it's what's inside that counts all though this is only £1.50 so what can you expect.

This gives me a lovely bit of colour warming up my complexion. It is easy to blend and can be build able. It has a hint of shimmer but it cannot be seen on the cheeks. This is the best colour match for me, it also comes in other shades to suit everybody. It is pigmented however it isn't that pigmented that it's overboard unlike my NYC bronzer that is ORANGE. I will wear this in winter and summer therefore it is an all year round product. I can also tell this will last for ages as a little goes a long way.

I absolutely love this bronzer it will be repurchased over and over again! I recommend you try this bronzer and I think you will love it as well. You can buy it here

What's your favourite bronzer and have you tried this? Tell me in the comments.

October Wishlit

I love sharing my wishlist with you guys and I love reading these sorts of posts, don't you? There are so many things that could go on this wishlist so I have narrowed it down to a few things I've been wanting for a while.

October Wishlit

Benefit Hoola Bronzer- I have been wanting this for ages but just haven't brought it yet. I would use this to contour and a all over the face bronzer to warm up my complexion. I just need to justify why I want a £23.50 bronzer when I am loving a E.L.F £1.50 bronzer...

Benefit Stay Flawless 24 Hour Primer- I have never tried a face primer before and I really want to try this one. I think it will be good when I defiantly need my makeup to last all day. I need to read a few more reviews on this first though!

Hunter Wellies- These were last year's winter fashion but I can tell these will be everywhere again this year. I want the shorter version of the boots as I'm not a big fan of the long boots. These will be perfect for walking in snow and icy weather this winter!

Victoria's Secret Body spray- These sprays will be my next buy from them getting raved about so much and everyone has them just like the Hollister sprays I just had to have last year.

YSL Touche Eclat Highlighter- I have been a fan of brightening underneath my eyes recently and I have never had a product from YSL so this is a want want want!

River Island Gold Chained Bracelet- I love jewelry, and this gold chain bracelet will be perfect as i love anything chunky around my wrists. Does anyone else feel naked without something around their wrists or is that just me?...

What items are on your October Wishlist? Tell me in the comments!

What's In My Makeup Bag {College Edition}

So I know a lot of you have gone back to school/sixth form/college already but I don't start college until Tuesday (and I would be lying if I said I am looking forward to it. I hate change!) So I have been getting my bag ready so I am not in a rush Monday or Tuesday morning which gave me the idea of showing you guys what I'm taking in my makeup bag.

17 Shine Control Pressed Powder
The name and packaging have changed for this product however I've had this for a while, I haven't really used it a lot as I've been using my MUA powders and Rimmel Stay Matte powder. I could quite easily go all day without using powder therefore I don't really care about powders as much as other products. I am going to be taking this to control my oils as I can tell it is going to get hot and stuffy in class rooms ugh! It is compact and comes with a sponge and a mirror for on the go touch ups so this is perfect.

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
This is my all time favourite concealer. The only thing that annoys me is how the writing on the packaging comes off but I am over that now haha! This is quick and easy to cover a blemish however this normally lasts all day on me but if I have a major blemish this will blend and cover quickly.

Maybelline Baby Lips
I cannot go a day without carrying a lip balm! I love this because I can quickly run it over my lips when they are feeling dry. I prefer Vaseline as it lasts longer but baby lips are better for taking out with you as you don't have to stick your fingers into a balm.

Elf Luscious Lipstick
This is my new favourite lip product. It is easy to apply and I don't have to use a mirror! This will be for when I am going out after college to add some colour to my lips. As it is autumn now this is a perfect fall colour. I also find that it is moisturising and lasts for ages!

Rimmel London Professional Eyebrow Pencil
I love this pencil for on the go touch ups and to tame my brows to keep them into place. This is also good for filling in quickly.

I am only taking 5 products to college as that is how much I need. I rarely touch up my makeup throughout the day but these are just essentials in case I need them. Whats in your makeup bag for college/school?

All About Boots

So this Autumn/Winter boots are a must! A pair of boots and fluffy socks and I will be good to go through the cold months! I have hunting for boots for ages. On Wednesday I went shopping and I went to River Island not expecting to find anything I like in there- then saw the most perfect pair of boots! Exactly what I was looking for.

They have amazing detail on them and they are super comfy. I am glad to get away from my converse as they were the only shoes I wore and I was getting bored of them. These boots will go with skirts,leggings and jeans therefore I can tell these are going to be all I wear for winter!

You can get these here from River Island for £45!

What do you think of these boots?

E.L.F Haul

I don't think I have ever been this excited when expecting a delivery. New makeup always excites me especially when it's from a brand I've never tried before. I have been wanting products from E.L.F for a long time now and watching youtube videos and reading reviews has helped me decide what products to purchase. I wanted to try their brushes however they were sold out when I made my purchase and now they are back in stock.. typical!

If you would like a review of any particular product shown in this haul please leave a comment below!

Autumn Inspiration

Autumn Inspiration

This is casual but classy at the same time so you will look done up but not too done up if that makes sense.. anyway what are your go to Autumn outfits? I'd really love to know!

River Island Haul

I wouldn't really say this is a haul as it's only 2 items but.. I couldn't think of a title so this will do. So as I said I have been loving online shopping I just had to make this order from River Island quick as possible and I didn't want the items to sell out.

 I needed a new bag for college to fit my texts books and folders in and I think that this will be perfect as it is big and spacious  My auntie has this bag in brown and it fits so much in therefore I just had to get it. I think the bag is better in black for me because dirt won't show up and I am going to be using it ALOT! Also black will go with any outfit in my wardrobe.

The tassel detail on this bag is cute. I had a bag with a tassel on before from River Island and it fell off but as I said my auntie has this bag, she has had it for ages and it hasn't fallen off so I think I wont have to worry. This bag also has different compartments to fit in keys, phone, lip balm and all the essential things you need to look for quickly. What I love about this bag is that it has a handle and a strap therefore as I am going to be carrying it around a lot I can carry it on my arm or put the strap on my shoulder. These are normally the kind of bags I go for.

As for the cami top these are all on trend and I think they are an essential in anyone's wardrobe. They can be worn with a skirt or jeans etc and they come in all different colours. I think I will need to buy more colours as I can tell I will be reaching for this top a lot!

So that's it for my haul but another one will be coming soon! What's your favourite the bag or top?

MUA Wishlist

Lately, I have been loving online shopping for all my makeup bits. The only thing that I can't do is buy foundation as I would never guess the colour correctly but concealers and powders are not hard to guess really.

I have tried to be budget friendly this month as I have needed to save up for college bits etc and makeup isn't something I need but I can't stop myself from purchasing more and more makeup. I have made an order from E.L.F which you will be seeing on my blog soon and now I think I might make an order from MUA. Even though the products are cheap they still have amazing quality for the price. Buying loads of items for a cheap price is always exciting!

Prime and Conceal- £1.50
Cream Blusher in Dolly-£2.00
Compact Powder-£2.00
Matte Eyeshadow in Shade 16-£1.00
Matte Eyeshadow in Shade 17-£1.00
Lipstick in Shade 3-£1.00
Lipstick in shade 13-£1.00
Blusher and Contouring Brush-£3.00
Powder Brush-£3.75

These are all products I have been wanting to try for a long time, I know like any brand that there are hit's and misses but i have chosen products that I know work well (except the concealer,brushes&powder I just wanted to try those) At 17.25 for all these it's a bargain! I may just have to make this order now..

What are your favourite MUA products? Have you tried any of these or what is your favourite? Let me know in the comments!

Autumn Inspirations{casual look}

So as Autumn has approached us very quickly, I need a total new wardrobe which is very exciting as it gives me an excuse to spend spend spend! These are a couple of things I have spotted that I love!

Autumn Inspirations{casual}

Knitted cropped jumper- The colour of this jumper is different to what I'd normally choose but I have fallen inlove with it. It would be perfect to just throw on and will look nice without any effect at all.

Ribbed riding pants- So these look exactly like disco pants here but if you go onto the link and zoom in you can tell there not. So as I didn't catch onto the disco pants trend I totally need these! They are not shiny and they will look nice with everything. These are a must have. I am going to buy these, I love the style of disco pants so I totally need these riding pants.
Boots- Omg these boots are so nice! I love the detail and they will be perfect for them cold days if you are outside and they will keep your feet lovely and warm.
The Mac lipstick and the Butter London nail polish colours are the sort of colour I am going to be going for this Autumn. The deep red will stand out and add colour. Barry M are bringing out a matte shade like this colour and I would recommended it for a cheaper alternative.
I hope you have enjoyed this post and have liked my picks! What are going to be your Autumn must haves?

Quick Easy Hairstyle!

So as everyone has gone back to school/college and may be in a rush in the mornings but still want to look nice heres an easy hairstyle we all know how to do.

This morning I couldn't be bothered to do something with my hair and it up in a ponytail looked rather boring so I thought I'd share what I did in a blog post.

So just tie your boring un-voluminous hair into a pony tail the way you like it.
Take out your curlers or straighteners and begin to curl the strands of hair.
And in 5 minutes you have...

Volumised, messy but classy hair!

In order for me to achieve this look I use my ghd's to quickly curl my hair. I found this quicker and easier.

If you have ran out of ideas to do your hair and have forgotten this one I hope I have helped. I can't remember the amount of times I have sat with boring straight hair and forgot how good it can look with a few curls.
