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?

OOTD

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!

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
Bronzer-£1.00
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.

September Wishlist

September Wishlist

September Wishlist

So as September has arrived I thought I would do my wishlist for this month. 


Nars Creamy Concealer- I have been wanting this concealer since every blogger has been raving about it. I would like it to replace my collection lasting perfection concealer but I just need to justify £21..

Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon-Again this is another product I want because of the hype it has been given. I haven't been into lip crayons but I bet this will change my mind.

L'oreal Lumi Magique Foundation-I have been wanting a new foundation for ages because I get bored of using the same ones, but I have so many to use up so this may just stay on the wish list for now.

YSL Palette in Uptown-This palette is absolutely gorgeous and so is the packaging. It's £42, this is a wishlist right...

Ted Baker Wash bag-This bag would be ideal to carry my everyday makeup products in and I want it! *cough need it cough*

Which item is your favourite? & What is on your wishlist?

Favourite Body Sprays!

I don't know about you but I prefer body sprays over perfume any day, however the Juicy Couture perfume is on my wishlist but for now I haven't found a perfume that I have fallen in love with so I stick to my body sprays. I love how I can chuck them in my bag for college to smell nice all day. They are cheaper and last for ages also, which is always a plus.


Next Just Pink- This is my favourite body spray to use if I am going out for the night as it doesn't have an everyday smell. If you love the next perfume you will love the body spray form and it is easy to place in your bag and you don't have to worry about the lid coming off.

Boots Natural Collection Samphire&Sea Minerals- This is my favourite everyday body spray. I use it everyday and it doesn't look like I've used it that much at all. What I love about this line is how many scents they do to suit everybody. They are only £2 which is a bargain! This will be my all time favourite body spray to take to college.

Soap&Glory Mist You Madly- I would say this is another body spray I would use for the evening but that is my opinion. It says it has a flirty,floral scent and I totally agree. It is very feminine and the packaging is super cute!

Hollister Crystal Cove- Out of all of the body sprays I own this is by far my favourite of them all. I only purchased this a while back because they were hyped up a lot and everyone owned them so of course I had to follow the trend and I am glad that I did. I haven't used it in a while and I have just re-discovered it and I am sad that it has almost run out but I will be re-purchasing if it is still available.

What are your favourite body sprays?

Tumblr Inspirations: Nails

Scrolling through Tumblr can be very addictive when you're bored, you end up scrolling for hours reblogging every image you like and it's never ending! I love looking at the makeup and fashion pictures and it gives me lots of ideas. One of my favourite things to reblog is nail art. As I get my nails done professionally as I cannot grow my nails and do not have the patience to do them myself I find myself getting lots of ideas every time I go for infills.








You can probably tell I love the nail designs with one finger white with black zig zags, and that is how I currently have my nails done. I love all these designs and I hope they have given you nail inspiration if you love nail art.

What one is your favourite?
