World cup fever!

So even though England are doing painfully badly in the world cup I still love it and completely support them and still believe we can win the world cup (cmonn guys if you dont think positive theres not point). I get incredibly into the world cup and try and watch all the england games. I got particularly excited for the first one. I wore an england t shirt and did my nails especially - and here are the pictures.

Hope you like my patriotic clothes and nails! I'm definitely watching the game tomorrow - I'm having a few of my friends round to watch them. Have you been watching them? also tomorrow it is finally my last exam!!!! Its german writing which is hard but still this time tomorrow i will be free and summer would have officially started! eeeeeeeep!!!

Sooo i had a little bit of money saved up so I put an order in at mac :) Its not often that i have money to spend on mac makeup because of the ridiculous prices so I am very excited about this. I only bought two items - the gaga viva glam lipstick and the mineralised skin finish natural in medium plus. They are both such good products!

First the msf. It gives such a good finish on my face and is the perfect shade for me. literally the shade could not have got closer to my skin tone! It gives a nice matte finish and i can use this all over my face in the place of foundation if i only want a light base or on top of foundation to provide really good coverage :) i apply it with my bare minerals flawless face brush. It stays on the whole night without priming or anything before - amazing!

Sorry for the lack of eyemakeup - i was getting ready to go in for an exam and just had to take a picture in my excitement because the finish was so amazing :)
The gaga lipstick - creamy long lasting and amazing. such a gorgeous subtle colour. beautiful :D
The packaging is AMAZING! im so in love with it!

Whats on your mac wishlist?

Quick outfit post.

Sooo i decided to do a really quick outfit post in the time between revising for my latin exam and exercising and big brother. I wore this outfit when i went to the fair a few weeks ago one friday night. It got quite cold even though the evening started off sunny. I wore really tight jeans (they are almost jeggings) from topshop and a tight crop top also from topshop with some nude sandals yet again from topshop :) i truly do love topshop...anyone tried out their makeup? if i hadnt gone into money saving mode i would buy a few things. Sorry for the bad quality of the photograph...all i have is my blackberry to take pictures on :/

Another 10 second look!

I've decided to make my 10 second looks abit of a feature because with all my exams recently i havent really been going out properly or anything and havent done many full faces of makeup. This look I did reallll quick when my dad suddenly announced we were going to pizza express. I had literally no time so all i did was put crystal by mac all over my lid and then do a liquid liner line and flick using my chanel eyeliner and did a kinda brown lip with an old brown lip colour and barry m lipgloss in toffee. I didnt even have time for mascara! S Also apologies for the ugly picture! I took it while i was in the car.

Sorry for the short post today...hope it helped you in some way :)

Hope your weekend was good! I am outraged at the world cup! completely! england should definitely have beaten usa dont you agree?!

Summer bbq makeup

So i decided to do a makeup look :) This is a really simple one and I wore it to a bbq gathering thing about a week ago. The weather was gorgeee and it was such a nice evening. Shared a couple of bottles of wine and some food with some of my best friends :) I kept the makeup quite simple but put a bit of definition into the eyes because it was an evening thing and i wanted to show a difference from my usual day makeup. I used mac's crystal eye shadow all over the lid then a grey and black from my sleek acid pallette in the outer corner. I then did a peachey cheek with nars' orgasm and light pink lips with barry m lipstick in 101 and some barry m gloss.

What do you think of nars orgasm blush? It has to be one of the most famous blushes of all time. I loveee it personally :)
For my hair i had it in plaits in the day when i went out to town then just came back and took out the plaits and it was nice and wavy.

Hope you liked this look. Its summery and relaxed yet still polished and makes it look like you made an effort. I hope these summer looks help you plan your makeup for all the summer events i'm sure you have coming up :)

hope youre all well lovelies!

Day to night outfit!

So i decided to do something a little different for this post. I took two basic items from my wardrobe - my high waisted denim shorts from miss selfridge and my vintage lace top and made them appropriate for both a casual day event and a more formal evening event :)

So this is the one for evening. Obviously its not a really formal event - just more formal than day wear. I wore this to pizza express with my dad and sister. I added black knee high, an old denim jacket and my military boots. I reallyyyy like the knee highs and boots look and may be wearing it in the festivals if the weather isnt that good!

And this is how I wore it for day. Very simple just added my military boots. I wore this to town and then to a bbq in the evening. Obviously it was very hot this day or I couldnt have got away with wearing so little!

Hope you like the look!
Also - check out mroe magazine this week for a free barry m dazzle dust. I picked my up today :) And in glamour theres a free benefit eye pencil! How crazy! I would have bought it but i already have two lined up ready...silly me and my spending.

Have a good weekend guys :) got any plans?

Top knot?

So the top knot hairstyle was all over the recent catwalks and I've seen loads of people wearing it in the day and night. I think they look quite nice and am really excited to try them at future events :) i'm thinking of pairing a tight top knot with heavy black eye makeup to make a really dramatic night look.
I am SO SORRY for these disgusting pictures of me. I have no makeup and my pyjamas on :| but i got the top knot perfect and had to take a picture.

This is one of the styles from the catwalks.

So what do you think of top knots? Good for summer? dramatic? good for night or day? ugly? too formal?

10 second look!

So i was going into town the other day with my mum and because I wasn't seeing friends or going out properly or anything I literally spent 10 second on my makeup. It was really hot that day aswell so I didnt want to be clogging my pores with foundation concealer eye shadow or anything!
Sorry for the horrible eyebrows - i didnt even pencil them in that day (i pencil my eyebrows in every single day usually). All i did was take my eyeliner from mac in coffee and draw along the upper lash line with a small flick off to the side and the taking it down a little bit beneath the lower lash line. For 10 seconds i dont think it looks too bad!

The song of the day is Rockstar 101 by Rihanna. Absolutely loving her at the moment! My family are all seeing her today at capitals summertime ball in london along with people like usher justin bieber and kesha. i am SO jealous - i am the sole person stuck at home because its my maths exam tomorrow and i have to revise :( how awful eh?

hope you are all well :) apologies for the slightly uninspired post. I just wanted to show you my really quick dressed down look and i dont think it looks too bad. Usually whenever i leave the house i wear foundation, concealer, powder, blush, highlighter, bronzer, eye primer, a few eyeshadows, brow pencil, eyeliner, two or more mascaras, lip stick and lip gloss. a ridiculous amount i know! so this was crazyyyy dressed down for me! how much do you guys wear every day?

Crop top ready?

So I've mentioned a few times on here about me wanting to lose weight so i could wear a crop top in summer and not be shamed. Well...i finally did it :D and wanted to show you guys the results.
I have lost quite abit of weight toned up and stuff - it has not been easy i can assure you! But yeah i think its kinda worked :)

This was taken at a gathering I had round my house last friday. Sun, music, best friends and a few shots of vodka = perfect evening! My crop top is from topshop and my jeans are SO old - i think they're from tesco :S

Hope youve been enjoying the beautiful weather if you live in england or any other place where theres sun :)

Finally a makeup look

After my random posts that have been un makeup related and what have you I have decided to do another look. I was inspired by an advert i saw for a new urban decay summer pallete. Obviously doesnt look much like it but i though neutral colours on top of the lid with a line of colour on the lower lash line looked really nice! I wore this look to a bbq at my friends house and wore a vintage floral playsuit and some nude sandals with it :)

My outfit :)
Scary close up of my eye :S just so you can see the purple.
I used a tiny bit of powder - :O no concealer or foundation! i'm trying to give my skin a rest before wearing lots and lots of makeup for all the summer parties!
I did the neutral lid using ydk, half baked and twice baked from my urban decay sustainable shadow set. Then to add something different to the look i ran macs satellite dreams underneath my lower lash line to define my eye. no eyeliner needed :) I used a bit of mascara of course and then a light lipgloss.
I think this is the perfect relaxed but still interesting look for casual summer events.
Although i'm sure when summer comes and there are gatherings and bbqs i will still be getting out the dramatic eyes and lips...i cant help myself!

Hope you are all well :) any comments would be lovely...just want to hear from you guys :)

I went shopping :)

So thankyou to my lovely lovely mother. She took me shopping today and bought me so much stuff! i have lots of makeup looks and outfits to show you...but i just really wanted to share with you what i bought.

A shirt from dorothy perkins. Not my usual choice for casual clothes of course but I have work experience as soon as my exams finish in 3 weeks so I needed some stuff for that. I don't generally like shirts that much but this one seemed alright.
Another shirt for work experience from topshop. This one actually looks quite nice on i think :) Its making me quite like the formal look...not much more formal than what i wear everyday. I am silly when it comes to dressing up for any occasion.
A blazer from topshop. The picture does not do it justice! It is truly gorgeous! and will look perfect for my smart clothes for work experience as well as going out this summer :)
Some new pumps. Mine for absolutely destroyed last term because i wore them everyday for school. These are from next - im really loving their shoes at the moment. seriously check them out!
Ohhh i love this dress! From river island just a really nice floral cotton dress. quite vintage looking i think. It'll perfect for any summer bbqs or gatherings.
A nice little cropped jumper from topshop. Its actually really cooling for the summer. i could definitely wear this with a little pair of shorts or something when it gets hot! The skirt is also from topshop. Just the classic black bodycon. I swear everyone owns one of these!
I'm actually in love with these shoes. Like my obsession is crazyyyy! I saw them in next and didnt stop begging until my mum bought them for me. Perfect for all summer parties, going out, town and in particular for the festivals! my festival outfits are now complete except i still have to plan my bag and makeup.

So guys what do you think of my purchases? I really do like to hear your comments! The weather was lovely in essex today...so glad the sun is back and hopefully this time to stay!

My makeup collection!

Now i love love love looking at people's makeup collections so I decided to post a picture of mine. As you can see it's not as big as all of the ones you see on like youtube and stuff but I do not have a job and completely rely on my pocket money and presents to buy my makeup. I have no good storage either! It's all laid out over my dressing table. It is all ordered though :) here it is:

From left to right:
All my face products - my foundations, bronzers, blushes, face palette, concealers and primers :)
My pigments from pure luxe and barry m
My eyeshadow pallete and mac eyeshadows and bourjois smokey eyes set
My lipsticks :) barry m and mac
My lancome lipgloss
a couple of cheap lip palettes
my pencils - urban decay, benefit, mac, barry m
my lipglosses - rimmel, barry m, benefit etc
in the mug are my liquid liners :) - glitters from urban decay and collection 2000 and my black liquid liner from chanel.
My mascaras
2 face palettes from benefit
and my lovely brushes :) mostly mac

btw i'm not trying to brag or anything obviously...i mean theres not that much! This is my love and i am SO protective over it - when all my friends come round they know that my makeup tables completely off limits, its funny XD

anyway just though i'd post that because one of my favourite things is looking at people makeup collections!

hope youre all well and hope to hear from you soon :)

Lets do a review :) Rimmel london fake tan

So i have the palest skin tone ever! Genuinelly i am so pale. Don't know my mac foundation colour but with maybelline i'm cameo and rimmel i'm ivory and yeah...very very pale. So in the summer I use lots of fake tan. I have tried many a fake tan in my time and the one I'm loving at the moment is Rimmel London's sunshimmer instant tan makeup for face and body.
Sorry about the picture from the website...my camera wasnt around and it looks exactly the same anyway.

This isn't a gradual build up but an instant tan (name kinda gives it away ;)) I use this whenever i'm going out and have some of my skin on show. It looks really dark when it first comes out of the tube but is actually really sheer and the colour is buildable and looks relatively natural. It can be used anywhere on your body and face and for me it has never gone streaky at all. It has a really good transfer resist. I have never seen it on my clothes or surfaces however I do sometimes notice that my tan has faded a bit by the end of the night. It does have a distinctive smell but I wouldn't say a bad one and definitely more like sun cream rather than the typical fake tan smell. The smell is easily covered up by perfume aswell :) It feels nice on the skin and sinks straight in to give a literally instant tan. However after the next half an hour or so I do notice it getting darker. It is so so cheap at just £3.99 in boots and it comes in 6 different colours for all different skin tones.

I absolutely strongly recommend this product because it gives a natural looking healthy tan without any of the tell tail fake tan signs :)

Hope you are all well. Have you tried any other fake tans? I've tried quite a few and have the occasional mystic spray tan for a party aswell!

its half term noww :D:D how exciting. Anyone have an plans for this week?


Wednesday, 26 May 2010

ohhh 2nd post of the day!

So to make up for my lack of posting I've decided to do two posts in the space of about five minutes :)
This one is more of a discussion point. Its not makeup related but I really want to hear lots of views.
Losing your virginity?
Been a topic that I've had to think about a lot recently.
I know very personal thing but I really want to hear people views, experiences and everything. Really need some people to talk to!
Literally any small comment or advice or anything I would be so grateful to hear from you.
Thankyou so much guys :)

Hi guysss!

I am so so so so so so sorry! Its been aaaaaaaages! I'm my gcses at the moment and have literally had no time at all to do any posts. I was thinking of giving up my blog completely but then saw a comment from surinsays - thankyou so much babe :) inspired me to keep going.
Anyway the post for today is the makeup I used for my last day, We all decided to do crazy amounts of makeup to school just because we're not usually allowed any!
I did a black smokey look on my eyes using bourjois smokey eyes set (the black one) with some mac black tied eyeshadow on top then some chanel liquid liner and lots of mascara. I used a LOT of bronzer and some bright pink lipstick - barry m number 145.
It seemed alot in the day but was really fun and looked quite good in all the pictures. Anyone else doing exams at the moment? Arent they awful! I'm stressed constantly ahhhh!
Hope youre all doing well :)
Would love to hear from you in the comment

Been away again!

I am so so sorry guys I havent posted anything in YEARS! i've been so busy revising for my gcses and going out and stuff that I've completely paid no attention to the blog and its been making me sad because I so enjoy the feedback i get :) hopefully you havent given up on me!

Anyways I'm doing another outfit post - because i do love them so much!

I wore this outfit to a gig I went to about a week ago with my friends. As ever i dressed up :) Genuinelly it would be hard for me to feel overdressed for any occasion! I wear heels, dresses and lipstick whenever i go out in the day! As me and my friend said the other day - we would both rather be smart than 'fit'.

I am wearing a dress my mum got me from fashion union mail order catelogue with some black opaques and then some black ankle boots from new look. My hair I just straightened quickly and then on my face I used some nude colours from my urban decay sustainable shadow pallet and used some of mac's girl about town lipstick.

Song of the day - kelsey by metro station.

The weather is AMAZING at the moment! Spent my day yesterday lazing about brick lane, camden and leicester square in the sun. absolute bliss! hope summer is like the last couple of days! What have you been up to in our recent amazing weather?

Weight recap!

So a while ago I did a post about my weight. I have since then kept struggling but it is working :) I have gone out in crop tops and not been shamed. I have come off the one meal a day diet and am not on two meals a day. Plus the hour of exercise. The diet is still quite challenging especially seeing the HUGE amount of food the people around me eat. So i've found a new but controversial way of sticking to my diet. Everytime I get near food or feel like eating when im not supposed to I get up a pro ana site on my blackberry and read the quotes. These give me the willpower to not eat :)

Some of my favourite quotes:
the infamous kate moss quote - 'nothing tastes as good as skinny feels'

Saying 'no thankyou' is saying 'yes please' to being thin

Eating is weak, be strong and you will be better than everyone

Anyone can have inner beauty but few can earn real beauty inside and out

Starving hurts but it works.

Now some of you may think these are very extremists and strange however they really work for me and make not eating quite easy :) obviously these could be very dangerous for anorexic people but I believe I use them sensibly and in the way they are designed to be used. My two favourite sites are www.starvingbeauty.com and Ana's thinspiration.

What are your thoughts on this very controversial topic?

Tip of the day!

So I found this new way of applying eyeshadow last night while getting ready for a party (I know good time to experiment ehh?) I was applying a pigment to my lid and I wanted it to be really vibrant so having primed my eye I put a little water in the cap and some pigment in with that like I have seen done many times by people on youtube videos on beauty blogs. This looked really vibrant however it was quite messy. I then got washed and drieed my brush and applied some dry pigment over the top of the wet pigment - it stuck so well and kept the gorgeous mettalicy finish! Definitely worth a try! I did this with barry m dazzle dust in number 8 silver iridescence but it would work with any colour or type of pigment.

Try this out if you've got time and want to make an impact at an event :)

What are your feelings on barry m dazzle dusts? Favourite colour?

My super sweet 16 :)

So I have just turned 16 as I have mentioned many times on my blog! I had a huge 16th birthday party with 100 guests in a really nice venue with a dj and bar and everything. I had SUCH a good time - seriously one of the best parties i've ever been too. Everyone had so much fun and I would love to have another one (my parents however are not so keen to pay out for another £1000 party XD) This is what I wore - It is a dress from asos and shoes from kurt geiger. My mum is wearing a dress from topshop and shoes from peacocks.

Do any of you remember what you did for your 16ths?

60s babyyyy

So last weekend I went to a fancy dress party - I mentioned it on here before but it was so much fun! And I just thought I'd post what I wore. So I didn't want to go out and hire a costume or anything because as a schoolgirl living purely off my parents and babysitting money I have more important things to spend my money on so I found some things at home :)

I wore my mums top from joe Browns as a dress and then wore my leather hotpants from h and m underneath. I found some random black 60s like boots - I think I wore them when i was younger. Thankfully they still fitted! I backcombed my hair and clipped it. For makeup i did white frost eye shadow on the lid then benefit bad gal liner and black tied mac eyeshadow in the crease and on the top and bottom lash lines then finished with a nude lip. Hope you like it :) Oh total cost = £0 woop woop

Song of the day: Pass out by Tinie Tempah
It was my birthday party yesterday and everyone went crazy at this song. Genuinelly amazing party - I'm so grateful to my mum and dad! I shall post some pictures of my outfit soon.

LOTD: Mother's Day makeup

Hey you guys :) Sorry I haven't posted for a couple of days! Anyways this is the makeup I wore when I went out to the golf club for mothers day meal. I have been SO brave and posted a picture of myself without foundation or concealer on :S This is my skin in all its not perfect, pale glory! Anyways I did a really simple quick look. I just put Mac's crystal eyeshadow all over the lid and then put some Mac satellite dreams eyeshadow concentrated at the lashline. On top of that I put some purple liquid liner from avon and then just added some mascara. On my lips I put concealer and then some lancome lipgloss :) Hope you like it!

So this week has been amazing for me because it was my birthday :) I am officially 16 :D I got some lovely presents including a blackberry and v tickets from my parents! I may post some of the other clothes/jewellery/makeup i got soon.

Have a great weekend guys! What are you up to this weekend?

Little Haul to share with you :)

So after my english result I got £100 to spend :D woop woop! I went into town on saturday and these are the things that I bought:

This is an instant fake tan from rimmel. I needed it that night because I was off to a party and wanted to have bare legs but I'm sure I will be getting lots of use out of this as the summer starts arriving! The consistency of this was really nice and the smell was lovely, not anything like normal faketans. It looks really dark when it comes out but actually is sheer and leaves a really nice, longlasting colour on the skin. Highly recommended at just £3.99!

These are some shorts I got from Miss Selfridge for £28. They are a really nice fit and work perfectly well for the new spring summer season. They encorporate both denim and military in one so are very on trend. They will become a well used basic in my summer wardrobe I am sure!

And these shoes are my new love! They are the most expensive shoes I've ever bought at £75 from River Island but I am actually in love with them. The nude colour, military style and wooden heel make these shoes painfully on trend. And they give me much needed extra height while still being easy to walk in. I cannot rave enough about them!!!

So these were my purchases from the weekend :) What are your thoughts on them? Think they were good buys?

Another OOTD

Apologies for the very weird facial expression! And the randomness of the background!

I wore this outfit for yet another non uniform day at my school and then out the next day into town for shopping and chatting :) I am wearing a dress from topshop, my lovely vintage ralph lauren shirt (best item in my wardrobe by far atm!) and a belt from urban outfitters. I have encorporated this summers trends of denim and leopard print into a cold weather outfit.

Hope you like it and it inspires you in some way :)


Sunday, 14 March 2010


Finally the pictures from the dizzee rascal and lily allen concert are up! This is what I wore :) Dress from Topshop, shirt vintage ralph lauren and shoes from my mums wardrobe.

Happy Mothers day! What did you get for your mum? I got mine some cupcakes and were all going out for a meal today.

Hope you had a good weekend!

Happiness :D and shoes to look at.

So I've been trying to post the past few days but for some reason it wasn't allowing me to :( anyways i am SOOOOO happy because i got some gcse results back! Well one. For some reason my school decide to make us do the english language exam (i do both language and literature english as two separate gcses) like 6 months early. But anyways i took it in january and got my results back on thursday and got an A*! So now i have 2 a* gcses under my belt before even going into the summer exams (I already have an A* in it which I took in year 9). But yeah it also means I got £100 from my parents which shall buy me some very lovely shoes - i've already ordered some clogs off the river island website. What do you think? Clogs - yay or nay? And I shall be spending the rest in town tomorrow.
I'm in tonight for like the 1st time in about a year :( I have to revise for my german oral exam which is in just 4 days :S but its fine because i've got a party tomorrow :) what are you guys up to this weekend?

Anyways, to make this post a little worthwhile and interesting for you and not just me forcing my excitement and happiness onto you I have got pictures for you of some new shoes I recently bought. My birthday is in just 5 days - I'm going to be 16 and I'm having a HUGE 16th birthday party next weekend which i am so excited for! I bought some new shoes from Kurt Geiger for the party - they are sooo pretty but so high that I can barely walk in them let alone dance for 4 hours :S What do you think? :)

Hope you liked this post - sorry for it being abit rambly. Have an amazing weekend lovelies :)

REVIEW: Mac costa chic lipstick

Here is my costa chic lipstick from mac:

So this lipstick I bought on new year's eve when I went up to london from selfridges mac counter. Now, I've only just got into lipsticks - before I was completely a gloss girl, still am to an extent but yeah :). This was the second lipstick I bought - I now have 4.

What mac sells it as: Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M·A·C famous. And the colour is described as - a frosty light coral.

Price: I bought it for £12 but apparently its gone up to £12.50. ughh mac stop putting the prices up :(

My review: First thoughts this lipstick is expensive. Yes it is expensive and when your my age it is a lot to pay for a lipstick however I love the brands and quality of makeup and would not mind spending about £15 on an eyeliner so that didn't bother me that much. And I would say you definitely get what you pay for! The texture of all the mac lipsticks is so nice - creamy, soft and not drying. Exactly what you need in a lipstick! The colour comes out really well on the lips and can be made really subtle with a thin layer or very dramatic with a few layers applied. The colour itself is absolutely beautiful. It is a gorgeous orangey coral and looks absolutely stunning on all skintones. It comes out very nicely on pale skin but I think it will come into its own when worn with a tan - will definitely be featuring in my summer makeup! It can be matched with most things on the eyes and I've found it works particularly with a neutral and brown based shadows. However it could be used with a black smokey eye to create a really dramatic nighttime effect. I consider it the best lipstick i own (others I have include mac's cosmo and sandy d) and I think i will use it alot in the summer. Also, I wore it on my first date with my last boyfriend - and lets just say it worked ;).

Would I buy again - most definitely yes. Havent found this colour anywhere else. absolutely beautiful.

Thankyou for reading :) if you have anything you would like me to review leave me a comment and i'll see if i have it :D

hope your having a good week

Tip of the Day

Oh yes another tip :D Before I go on to it last night i went to the dizzee rascal and lily allen concert at the o2 in london. it was absolutely amazing!!! Me and my girls were up dancing the whole way though - seriously they are both such incredible performers! If your ever near one of either of their concerts definitely go see it! I wanted to find a picture of lily because she looked so gorgeous and her eye makeup was amazing. but there arent any up and my ones were really bad quality :/ My favourite songs of the night were holiday by dizzee rascal and 22 by lily allen. Oh soon i will do an outfit post of what i wore :)

Anyways I'll stop rambleing about my weekend - do you guys actually like hearing about what i get up to? When I read blogs I love to hear what they've been doing because it makes it much more personal but would you prefur if I kept it just to makeup and fashion?

The tip of the day is a really simple hair style that takes about a second to do and is SO on trend for this ss10. It is the alexander wang plait!

It was features on every girl in his ss10 collection and is the perfect hair style for school or work, ont the beach, in town, out partying literally anywhere! And its so easy to do simply brush your hair to the side and put it in a loose plait. Works especially well on long hair but medium length hair can do it too. It can look both dressed down and up! I wore it last night to the concert and will be regularly using it this whole spring summer season. Hope you like it!
