outfit of the day;

Heyaa, so today i had to go to the optitions to pick up some new glasses and contact lenses, whilst i was out i also did some christening present shopping!! i bought some adorable things, which i will talk about in another post as this suppose to be about my outfit of the day, hehe!

So todays weather was okay, it wasnt hot but it wsnt freezing cold... So i tried to find an outfit that would be pratical so if the weather got colder when i was out i was warm and if it got warmer than i could stay cool..

the outfit

#maxi skirt-dorothy perkins;£10
#vest top-primark;£1.50
#denim jacket-primark;£8
#dolly shoes-primark;£3

 so today i styled together a plain black maxi skirt, a plain grey vest top, clinched in at the waist with a black and gold belt. a plain off white scarf, a blue denim jack and jsut some cute white dolly shoes with a bit of cute detail on the top. as you can see pretty much my whole outfit is from primark, yeah im a cheapppooo, ehehee! this outfit i thought was quite good and did the job of keeping me warm as it did infact get a bit colder. i was also feeling abit under the weathe today so i did need something to keep me warm.

the shoes

as i said my shoes are from primark but i thought i'd show you what they actually look like as in the outfit pictures you can't actually really see them. i love the detail on these i think they look really cute, they also make your feet looked tanned as they are white.

the make-up

eww, i look absolutley awful in this picture, as i said i was feeling abit under the weather today!
my make-up was pretty simple, just abit of natural collections concealer, a light layer of mascara, today i used my collosal mascara brush with the natural collection waterguard mascara, a little bit of eye liner on my water line the eye liner i used was barry m's giant crayon and to top off the look i applied a little bit of natural collections candy mist lipstick.
if you want more information of any of these products you can check out my 'whats in mak-up bag' <linked.

i hope you liked my outfit. let me know your opinions and any suggestions on what to any of the items with in the future. also could you all do me a favour and help me get more followers please?

much love'xoxox

Jack Wills University Outfitters Nail Varnishes;Review

Heya, so in my last post 'whats in my make-up bag' <<linked here. i went on for quite a while about the last item which was a Jack Wills nail varnish from their University Outfitters collection in the shade hot pink. I actually have four shades of this collection so i thought i'd do a review of them:)

So i picked these up when i was shopping for a hoody in Jack Wills, i went to pay and saw them buy the counter at £6.00 each i was slightly cautious weather to try them or not, but after considering it i picked the four nicest shades(in my opinion) that were there and i thought i'd give it ago. to be honest i did mainly pick them up to review them on my blog incase any body was wondering about them.
Anyway i'll get down to it now..

 first up is this lovely navy blue colour. this shade is actually just called 'deep blue'. out of all of the nail varnishes this is the one i was most impressed with as with just one coat the colour came out perfect and there was no need for a second coat, which i was quite pleased about. also it died fairly quickly which is also helpful if you're going out in a rush and have forgotton to paint your nails. this does apply for all of the nail varnishes as they all dry reasonably quickly :)

 secondly is this deep purple. in the picture the bottle looks quite bright when actually in the bottle it looks rather dark more like a black with a hint of purple, which is why when i tried this out on my actual nail i was quite surprised when it came out the colour it is in the picture. this one was actually a bit more disapointing as you can see one coat just really isnt enough, which after trying the blue one i thought and was hoping it would be. so that was a bit of a downer. this shade is actually callled 'violet'. all of the shades have simple straight forward names. so yeah was disapointed with this colour as it came out much lighter then shown on the bottle and is very thin.

 next up is this gorgeous pastley green shade. i loved this colour as soon as i saw it and its actually what drew my attention to the whole collection of nail varnishes. i was very happy with this one though it was one of the best coming second place to the navy blue one. it was really good with one coat however it could probably use another coat just to make it have a perfect finish. this shade is called 'peppermint'. all in all was really happy with this one.

lastly is the hot pink colour that i have actually already talked about in my whats in my make-up bag post. if you've read that post you'll ready know how much i loveee this colour but also how disapointed i was with the actual contents of this product. when its been applied to the nail it looks very sheer and definatley need atleast 2-3 coats. which then also causes it to chip very easily as it is so thick. so even though it is actually my favourite colour out of them all, it was definatley the most dispointing. this shade is called 'hot pink'.

if you wish to purchase any of these you can check them out on the beauty section on the jack wills website <linked here.

i hope you enjoyed my review of them all and i hope it has helped you!:) if you've tried any of these yourself please let me know what you personally thought of them in the comment section below.

Much Love

whats in my make-up bag;

Heyaa, so i've seen loads of people do this tag so i thought i'd join in hehe..
please excuse the bad quality of the photos for some reason my camera would not focus! grr..

1)my make-up bag

this make-up bag is the perfect size as it is big enough to fit everything in and small enough to fit in your bag aswell. i really like this make-up bag as i think its quite unique considering as i've never seen anybody with it.. i actually got this free in a cosmo magazine about 2-3years go it has lasted me all this time which i think it really good, especially as it was a freebee!hehe!

2)my concealer
this concealer is natural collections cover-up cream in light shade. individually this product costs £1.99 but i bought it in their 3for£5 deal along with some lipgloss and lipstick which you'll see in a minute. personally i think this concealer is really good as it cover ups really well, such a cheap price too. i also usually find it really hard to find a concealer to match my skin tone as im so pale but this shade is perfect for me.

3)my eyelash curler
 this eyelash curler is from a collection of loads of make-up brushes and other make-up tools that i got from christmas, i think the set was from very.com.

4)my eyeliner
 this eyeliner is barry-m's super soft eye crayon. sorry about the state of it in this picture, cringeee, but this was taken the morning before i went out to buy a sharpener for it, as its a 'giant' eyeliner i had to go out and buy a different sharpener for it because all my previous eyeliners have been small. i like this eyeliner as its good for every look, it draws very precise lines which i quite surprised about as its so thick. its also good for doing a smudge effect aswell. i'm not actually too sure exactly how much it was as i got given it as a present, but i did try to find it online but could only fine their waterproof one which was £4.95 so guessing its around the same.

5) one of my mascara's
now i say one of my mascara's because i actually have four, i dont use them all at the same time dont worry, you may remember my post from earlier this year about wanting a  new mascara, in the end i did go for this one but it ran out. so instead of buying a new one i decided i would keep this one because i like the brush and just buy natural collection mascara's from boots as they are alot cheaper and you still get the good finish just for alot cheaper, yeah im a cheapo, hehe! but yeah i really like the brush as really does build-up your lashes.

 6)my three trusty mascara's
 these are my three trusty mascara's that i use paired with my other one, i have three because they are all different, one's lash build-up, one's lash-lengh and the other is water proof.. seperatley they are £1.99 each but i bought these three for £5. they are really good especially for the price, i would definatley recommend them if you dont have alot of money but a good mascara!

7)my everyday lipstick
 this lipstick is again another item from the natural collection range at boots, i really like this range because its cheap but also good quality! i love lipstick! the colour doesnt really show up that well on camera but its a light pink shade. its really nice for an everyday wear as it doesnt stand out a mile its just nice and pretty and gives your lips a slightly lighter pinky colour. this shade is called candy mist, im not sure how much this was individually as i bought it for 3for£5 along with my concealer and the lip gloss below.

8)my lipgloss
 yes another item from natural collection hehehe! again the colour of this doesnt pick up very well on camera, but it is just a lovely very pretty light pink colour. this is also a very nice everyday wear which i tend to wear on top of the candy mist lipstick. the two work very well together and just give a light pink very pretty glossy finish. this shade is calledcarubbean crush. again not too sure on the price as it was apart of an offer..

9)my going out lipstick
 this lipstick is from a collection called beauty uk which is actually from a clothes shop called select. as you can see in the picture it is a very hot pink colour. i only tend to wear this if im going to a party or something as i personally think its a bit too out there to wear during the day. i love love love the colour though! its also a very nice listick as it mositurises your lips aswell! this shade is called passion. i think it was about £2.99 which is really cheap for such a good lipstick that lasts all night. when i wear it out i apply it before i leave the house and i dont have to worry about re-applying later on in the night as it stays on!

10)my mostly worn nail varnish
i know this probably shouldnt be in my make-up bag as its a nail varnish but i like to carry it around with me everywhere as its normally the colour i wear the most! this is from jack wills university outfitters range. the shade is just hot pink. when on it leaves a very bright very pink shade! which i love! its also slightly shimmery so when your hands move in the light it gives of a slight sparkle which looks very pretty! this was actually £6 which i personally think is rather expensive for a nail varnish especially considering its actually not very good quality! another reason to why its in my make-up bag and why i carry it around everywhere! it chips so easily! it doesnt last longer than 2days at the most! which for £6 i think is appaling! i love the colour though and the finish is really nice! i think the liquid is rather thin so you do have to apply 2-3 coats if you want a propper finish which is why i think it comes off so easily considering after 2-3 coats it is quite thick..

anyway i've kinda rambled on alot about each product! but let me know you're opinions on each one and also if you know any other good cheap concealers or lipstick or hot pink nail varnishes!

much love'xoxox

i'd sell my soul to the devil, if i had one to give;

Heyaa, i know i havent posted in ages like seriously ages as in 4 months!! i had a bit of a confuffle with my account.. so sorry about that.. anyway i am now back and will try to keep you all updated and entertained with recent posts! how have you all been? thankyou all for still following me lets see if we can get these numbers up shall we?!

i went to Reading last week with a few of my friends, we went there planning to just look and window shop. well as you can probably imagine a bunch of girls 'just window shopping', yeah it didnt really work out.. So i ended up spending £53  hehe whoopsiee..
This is what i bought;

i've had my eye on these all summer but haven't had the money the money to buy them, so as i finally had the money i thought i'd buy them before they go out of stock as in Oxford they've gone out of stock, sad face.. i think they're really nice and as i have loads of plain shorts i thought it would be nice to buy some that aren't just plain denim for a change..


it's also my niece's christening coming up soon, so i needed to find a nice summery dress for that asap as i left abit late, oopssey daissyy.. anyway i've been looking all over for the internet for a nice summery dress and haven't been able to find one that i like anywhere, sad faceee.. typical as for the past few months i've seen loads of nice dresses but just had no excuse, or money, to buy one.. but thankfully i finally found one! i found this dress in apricot for just £19 which i thought was quite a bargin as it was reduce from £32. in the picture it doesnt look as nice as what it actually is/:


I also need to find some heels to go with this dress as i am quite short so it drags on the ground slightly, any suggestions to what heels or where to look for some?

please subscribe to my blog and comment any suggestions you have or tips on how to make my blog better..

much love
