More florals, sorry. But I just really loved how the red looked against the burgundy shade of the cardigan. Not to mention it all goes with my hair colour :) I've been pulling out some long lost items of clothing (including this dress) as I'm preparing to do a car boot sale within the next couple of weeks. I've truly purged my clothing drawers, and the wardrobe is next. I do love car boot sales but I just hope there won't be too many people who pretty much want something for nothing, grr! The other bad thing is it means I don't get to have a browse myself as I'll be so busy, oh well.
Have you ever picked up anything amazing at a car boot?
Just a quick outfit post from me today as I'm off to work in a minute. Whenever I dig this playsuit out it reminds me of how much I love Forever 21 and really, really makes me want to take a trip through to Glasgow for a visit (damn Edinburgh for not having a store here). I've found that a few of my floral/patterned items don't quite look right now with my red hair, but this isn't one of them.
I hope you all have a nice Thursday, I know I'm just looking forward to the clock hitting midnight because it's finally pay day and I can treat myself to some things (it's been tooooo long)!
For my base I really can't get enough of the Stay Time 25 hour foundation by Seventeen, I use the shade Soft Ivory. This foundation creates such a flawless look but I don't find that it feels heavy on my face at all. It also lasts really well (not that I've tested it's 25 hour claim...). I use the same line of concealer too, in the shade Extra Fair. Both are perfect together and such good prices! For my powder I love Rimmel Stay Matte in Transparent which of course everyone seems to love. My blush is a cream one from Topshop in the shade Neon Rose, though I really need to buy a new one. I don't remember why I ever bought this Rimmel Match perfection because it's quite clearly too dark for me! But I find it works well as a nice contour - it's in the shade Classic Beige.
My lips have been a little dry lately so I've been using quite a lot of the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream on them. Two favourite lip shades I keep reaching for at the moment are the Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Pencil in the shade Eastend Snob - yes I know it's just a lip liner but I absolutely love the shade! Also since it's autumn now I feel darker lips don't look so out there, I love this Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in 107. For both products I like to use some Carmex lip balm underneath.
For curling my lashes I use these curlers by the brand Emite, which I received in a Glossybox ages ago. Same goes for this pretty highligher in the shade Cashmere, it's so lovely.
When I decide not to use up all of my favourite copper shade in the Naked 2 palette, I like to use a few shades from this MUA Ever After palette. My favourites at the moment are Unwrap, Penny and Truffle. I always line my waterline with the Nyx Milk jumbo pencil. For my eyebrows I've been using the remains of my Mac Wedge eyeshadow and using the pen end of the Archery pencil from Soap & Glory (I use the shade Brownie Points). My eyeliner of choice is the Eyeko skinny liquid pen, and for mascaras (I always layer two) I've been using Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless and Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam.
Hi all! I'm finally posting another outfit (I promise there's more to come very soon) as this is what I mainly started my blog for and I feel like I barely do them anymore. You might also notice (if you're very observant haha) that I've changed my blog layout. It's nothing crazy, I like simplistic, chic themes and I couldn't be happier with the one I've chosen. I still have a few bits to tweak but it's pretty much done. What do you think?
As for this outfit, I'll admit, wearing this hat is a little out of my comfort zone. I picked it up in the New Look sale months ago because I'd always wanted one and thought why not as it was cheap. Not entirely sure it suits me...hmm. Either way, I thought it went well with this outfit. I love the burgundy cardigan with this shade of the Jamie jeans - the best jeans ever! And the brown bag is something I've had since way back in my college/uni days (so...6/7 years old) but I've recently rediscovered it.
Hi guys! I thought I'd share this adorable monthly subscription box with you all. When I first stumbled across the company, Lucky Dip Club on instagram I didn't realise it was the same person who used to run Lady Luck Rules OK which was a favourite of mine!
Lucky Dip Club sends out a different themed box each month with lots of cute crafty/jewellery pieces (one being personalised). For £15 (including postage) a month, it really is a sweet little bargain :) You have to be fast though as they sell out the same day they are released. You can cancel your subscription any time, and products from previous boxes (as well as lots of other cute things) are available in the shop.
For September's box, the theme was Magic Forest. The list featured above tells you everything that was in it, I'm so in love with the little Bambi and owl brooch! Also, can't wait to try and make the fox sleep mask...it's been a loooong time since I've done anything crafty like this, fingers crossed!
Would you or have you subscribed to Lucky Dip Club? xo
