It's rare I'll wear much jewellery these days. With work starting so early the last thing I'm thinking about is what bracelets and necklaces to throw on. However with rings they are simple and easy to slip on and wear all the time. I'd heard a bit about Karen Millen's collection but never realised she did jewellery. When I was having a browse I realised how beautiful and much I loved every piece in her collection, isn't it great when you find a new designer you just love? This beautiful ring from Karen Millen, has become my everyday ring that add's instant sparkles to my fingers. The ring is so simple yet very effective with the sprinkle of crystals.

So we've hit that "oh it's quite nice today ain't it" then "bloody hell it's freezing again" stage. Oh the joys. I've been struggling with dressing ready for summer, and wrapping up ready for snow. While it's  always a bit of hit and miss you can't go wrong with a simple, casual, monochrome outfit fit for when the weather slightly gets a little warmer. 
Boohoo have a great selection of items online at the moment, I have my eye on quite a few of their dresses! While boohoo has a wide range I can't get over the prices sometimes. It's like the online version of Primark, however let's be fair and say the quality is better than Primark. I did end up picking out these two piece's. For some more causal throw on get the looks. Grey is becoming my new favourite colour at the minute. It's such a great colour to add a range of textures and other colours into for the person spring/summer outfit. I've then also been after a flowing throw on and go coat like this for quite a while. At £30 the coat is a total steal.

Have you ever seen such a dreamy two-piece before? This was one of them buys where it just got added to my basket and I just brought it. I didn't need to question if I'd actually wear it at any point in my life, I just needed it. With the top being £12.99 and the shorts being £14.99 the set is also a complete bargain! I love everything about it and I can't wait to wear it out on my next night out! 
Now I'm back expect lots of outfit posts again! I spent the whole of yesterday shooting and replying to my emails. I'll also be a little brave and start taking them on my lunch break at work! Hereford is such a pretty town!

On Mother's day and Father's day it's all about showing how grateful you are to your loved ones for all the amazing work they've done over the years. What better way to say 'Thank You' than to by pampering your mom. This year at The Body Shop They've brought out some right old treats for your old mom. So you can treat her just like a Queen! 
The Body Shop were kind enough to send me one of their Limited Edition Mother's Day Boxes. To give my verdict  on. One thing I love to do is to trial out new skincare, so I jumped at the chance. I have to admit I've been a little lazy the past few months while I've been living out of a suitcase. 
The collection is perfect for the ultimate skincare routine. I would describe the smell as a mild soapy smell. Something that reminds me of my childhood and my older relatives. But still a oh so fresh and warming smell for waking up to, and falling asleep to. 
My favourite products from he collection have to be the 'Vitamin E Eyes Cube' this is a product I'd never even heard of before; but has made it's way into my daily skincare routine. I've also taken a very huge liking tot he moisturiser. Oh wow does this thing make you smell like a soapy fresh baby's bum but also make you extremely smooth to the touch. 

If you're still looking for a mothers day present, or even just fancy treating a friend why not try the Vitamin E collection?

I think it's safe to say we are well over due a good old catch up. The past few months have been so manic, stressful and different for me. So I thought I'd sit down and get you all caught up with me and what's been happening and what's to come. 
WORK LIFE | work has been the main reason my blog has really taken a hit the past month. However I did try for you guys to get outfits shot by putting my camera in a cup balanced on a ironing board. (didn't turn out well haha)  This week is my last week in Nottingham (yaaaaaaay) I've been here for the past two months, finishing off my training and helping with the refit of the store. The store is looking beautiful already, and I can't wait to come back and shop the Home collection. It's also made me so happy that I'll be going to a store that's already pretty and new. But I'm officially no-longer a trainee Visual Merchandiser but a fully trained on with my own store. It's definitely been a hard journey to get to where I am now.  Sometimes you need to take the negative to produce the positive to prove the rest wrong. Now I've finished my training and experienced the routines of a larger store, compared to Telford I am definitely re-thinking what's next for me. 
HOME LIFE & FRIENDS | Living away from home for the first time, not knowing anyone has been a real struggle for me. But having a supportive family and friends has been so great. I made sure to make good use of my weekends and to spend them with my family as much as possible. But of course a cheeky night out had to happen where I let my hair down a little too much. 
HAIR | not breaking news but I thought I'd pop a mention in as my hair is something I'm considering drastically changing soon. I have to admit going back dark is something I'm itching to do, although I always end up wanting to go blonde. I have completely left my hair alone now for a while but I'm really feeling the Kylie Jenner Blue hair. 
TRAVELING | I've decided I need to go on holiday this year, and definitely start saving to go traveling for in the next few years. I love history and exploring new places. So it's time to start planning. 
TRENDS | I'm really feeling the current hippy/60's trend thats cropping up on the high street. I'll be working on H&M's next ladies rehang tomorrow which is so on point for the trend. However Im not feeling the wide leg trousers just yet.

While Kylie Jenner's lips have slightly gotten a little out of control, we have all been lusting over her perfect nude lips. She has defiantly started a trend, in which we no long reach for our red lipstick. I tend to lean more towards lipsticks that are my lip shade, but better. This can then become a staple piece to your daily make up look. Here are just three of my favourite nude's which I've been wearing the past few months. 
TAUPE | I don't usually go for matte lipsticks, which my lips being naturally big they do tend to dry out and get very dull instantly. Especially in the colder months. However the Taupe shade is so on point and perfect for everyday wear. It's a very subtle shade, not being a dark nude and not being a light nude either. 
CREME IN YOUR COFFEE | I have to say this shade is my ultimate true lip smacking soul mate. I literally couldn't of found a more perfect suiting shade for my lips. With it's cream-sheen texture the product sits perfectly on my lips for my daily wear. It's not the most long lasting lipstick but it's become my daily lips to throw on and go. 
JUBILEE | This is my most recent mac lipstick purchase. I actually got recommended this one after another lipstick was sold out. I swear overtime I find a shade recently it's sold out. However I have to admit this shade was exactly what I was after. I recently brought the Maybelline Colour Drama in 'Nude Perfection' This also instantly become a fast daily product for me. However it is very drying so I found it to dry out my lips. I did however find Jubilee which is the perfect match.

There's no secret that I have a little obsession with little black boots. When these came into work last week, then we were told about getting three items for 50% off, well it was meant to be wasn't it? I have to admit these boots are slightly different as they have a wooden heel, which i thought may be hard to pull off. Actually the wooden heel/sole makes the boot. The heel also isn't too high which makes them the perfect height and style for everyday wear! 
I will apologise for the style of these photo's my camera was actually in a cup on a ironing board to take these photo's. OH THE GLAMOUR. Living out of a suitcase is hard however I made a few online purchases which i managed to pick up from home at the weekend. I'm trying to keep my sass levels high while I'm away but it is proving a challenge. 

I&K Synthetic One Piece Body wave Clip In Hair Extension.

Monday, 23 February 2015

We all know about my love for hair extensions. For me hair extensions are my best friend. I wear my clip in set from Dirty Looks pretty much everyday. However when it comes to a night out, I always go for more volume and a lot more curls! This weft from Hair Trade was exactly what I needed to give me the extra volume, thickness and of course sass! 
You can easily clip in the weft with the six clips provided, which have already been sewn and fitted to the weft. I actually ended up giving the weft a gentle wash to loosen up a few of the curls. This allowed the weft to appear more natural and loose. I'd highly recommend a hair piece of you're after that extra volume by adding something so simple as one weft.

Quick outfit post from me, I allowed my dad to have another shot at taking my outfit shots. He still managed to capture all my freaky faces. I ended up picking up this shirt-dress yesterday from Tesco! it was only £16 and I love it. I did size up by 3 times to make sure it was long enough, as my height always seems to let me down when it comes to dresses. I paired the look with my new shoes which i featured in my last post. I can't get over how comfy these shoes are. If you've worn H&M shoes before you'll know the pain.

So I didn't really stick to my I'll post more while I'm away. All the posts I've had drafted have just been gathering dust! I also have to admit this look has changed when it comes to what products I now use as I use a new mascara and base! I'll probably do a more updated daily look in a few months time.  I won't go into too much detail about each product as I've talked about a few of them in previous posts. 
One thing I've really been working on is making sure I have the perfect base. To do this I've been doing my new skincare routine. (post to follow soon!) But of course the perfect base product to really create the ultimate base for my make up. Once this is achieved by using the ME ME ME SEVENTH HEAVEN MOISTURISING FACE BASE, I apply my favourite foundation which is Rimmel London 25 hours Nude Lasting Perfection. I then go onto my brows. You will have to excuse the mess their currently in, I'm trying to get them a bit more bushy! I personally love a bold brow, but not a tattoo drawn style brow. All I use on my brows is a little Natural Collection shadow in the shade 'crushed walnut' I then go over with a quick brush with my ARCH ANGEL from Me Me Me Cosmetics! This makes sure my brows don't go wondering off when I'm out and about.  I then move onto my eyes! I eye make up does tend to vary mainly on how much sleep I fancy having. If I don't have liquid eyeliner on you should know I had an extra 15 minutes in bed that morning. To achieve my liner look I use the very popular; Fast Stroke from Collection. Over the years I've tried to move on from collection but I just can't seem to find a liquid eyeliner as easy and reliable to use! To finish the eye I add a quick flick of my Bobbi brown Smokey Eye Mascara.  I then like to go in with my powder, I use the Chanel Poudre Universelle Compacte. While it's a pretty expensive powder i have to say it is kinda worth it's price. The blurred photoshop look it add's to your face is pretty much worth every penny. And of course it's then time to contour! I'm slightly ashamed to say only a few months a go did I start to contour. I literally look back on old selfies and hate myself for not learning sooner. To contour I use the Sleek Palette Face Form in shade 'Light' This palette has literally been one of my favourite beauty purchases. It literally does wonders for me. being quite pale it's hard to find the perfect bronzer, highlighter and blusher that all work well for my skin tone. Now last but not least! LIPSTICK! I adore this lipstick! I picked it up when shopping with a friend who knew where stuff when it came to what mac lipstick to get. Since purchasing 'Creme In Your Coffee' it's become my daily lip shade.

I must say I'm really loving the up-and-coming spring/summer trends. I'm so done with scarfs and wearing five layers daily. Work is defiantly making a influence on my current looks. From the over sized coats to the pastel shades with a added edge. I'm so in love with these shoe's I spotted in delivery and grabbed straight away. Also they are so comfy!

SHOES | £39.99 || NECKLACE | £7.99 || EARRINGS | £3.99 || ORGANIZER | £4.99 || SWORSKI SET | £14.99
Isn't it funny how at school I use to be bloody obsessed with wearing jewelry. However these days it seems I just cannot be bothered to add that bracelet or to even wear earrings. I've definitely got a bit lazy when it comes to adding my add on's.  This week H&M had quite a few goodies in delivery I noticed they had some great offers running. I just couldn't get them out for my mind so I popped into Birmingham for some me time. 
I love rose gold, who doesn't these days? It's a shade that just looks effortless with a girly twist to jewellery I find. I was mostly attracted to the stunning stones which have been used with this necklace the shades all work so well together to create s simple yet statement long necklace. I ended up spotting this organiser as I made my way to the till. I must admit it was one of them do I really need this? But screw it I want it anyway buys. I'm going to use it in my bag for my notes and recipts. Shoes! I really don't need anymore shoes but when I was putting these out the other day, they just screamed my name. Also if you've brought shoes from H&M before you'll know how terribly uncomfortable their shoes can be. I can safely say these beauties are a dream to wear!
