I’m Getting Married!

E Shoot S&N 032

Hi Everyone!

I can’t believe I’m saying this but on Saturday I am getting married! I have been planning with my fiance for way over a year and it’s finally here. Planning a wedding has at times been very stressful but overall, of course it’s been so exciting.

Obviously the next weekend and beyond are going to be super busy, so I just wanted to apologise as my blog posts may be a bit inconsistent for the next couple of months what with swanning off on a honeymoon too 😉

I can’t wait to share details from our day on here; my make up, tips on what I have learnt from planning a wedding and details from our honeymoon. So please keep your eye out on my instagram and twitter for updates and to make sure you don’t miss anything, sign up on here and you will get email notifications!

90s Camouflage

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone!

I love bringing back the 90s trend and this outfit really reflects it. Wearing camouflage can be really grungy sometimes but by pairing it with this pink bomber jacket, it gives it a girly edge. This top is perfect when you’re sitting down all day as it has an open back so it sits really well, it would also look amazing if you’re able bodied as the open back detail is quite unique.

Makeup Revolution Fortune Favours The Brave Review

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone,

Fortune Favours the Brave is the latest eyeshadow palette released by Makeup Revolution and it has been designed by blogger ‘British Beauty Blogger’. I have tried quite a few of Makeup Revolutions products before including a few of their palettes which I’ve always loved.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As you can see it comes in beautiful gold packaging which is super sleek and the eyeshadows themselves are gorgeous! Most of the colours are quite neutral but there are some darker shades perfect for contour and a smokey eye on the right hand side. There are colours in this palette that will suit everyone and because of the variation in shades they will easily take you from day to night.

The eyeshadows are creamy and easy to blend, although it takes a couple of layers to get a strong pigmentation. I use the lighter shades as a base and highlight for the corner of my eye; Pink Diamond which I have swatched above is one of my favourites for this.

The palette is definitely worth purchasing if you’re in the market for some new eyeshadows, it’s really affordable and you can get so many different looks out of it, which makes it perfect for travelling too!

Have you tried many of Makeup Revolutions products before? Is there anything else you think I should try?

Much Love,

 

Slogans and Logos

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone,

This outfit was a really fun one to put together, it was all based around this bag my friend got me for my birthday. I love the fact that the slogan stands out so much and it worked so well with this logo t-shirt.

This denim jacket is one of my favourite finds so far this spring/summer, it’s got an oversized style which means it’s really comfortable but the rips and colour keep it super stylish. I like mixing denim on denim and these grey jeggings are amazing. I have a few different colours in this style and when you’re in a wheelchair and it’s so hard to wear jeans, these are perfect as they have the look of denim but are stretchy which makes life a lot easier!

Kiko Haul & First Impressions

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone,

You know how much I love Kiko, so whenever I get the opportunity to go to one of the few shops in the UK, I make the most of it! I thought I would give you the low down on what I got and what I thought of it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I picked up this gold eyeshadow from The Artist collection; I already own the green one which I really enjoyed using and featured in my Chanel inspired Spring make up look. This colour has a lovely pearlescent sheen, it creates a great base to build on or for a simple but pretty make up look, I wear it on it’s own with lots of black mascara.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I had wanted this liquid highlight pen for ages but they were always sold out, so luckily they had a couple of the shade Virtuous Gold when I last went in. I originally wanted the Dynamic Coral shade but that wasn’t available. The colour of this one is really flattering and I think it’ll look even better on sun-kissed skin in the summer as it will really compliment lots of bronzer and a sun tan!

I still wear it at the minute though, it’s not hugely pigmented which works for a day to day basis and I usually add powder highlight over the top for an evening look and having this underneath means my highlight doesn’t budge all night!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Finally, I picked up the Lips & Cheeks pencil in Free Flamingo from the new summer collection. I have mentioned before that I love the Bobbi Brown Art Sticks and they were featured in my April Favourites, so I wanted to see how this would compare as it’s a much more budget friendly option! The jumbo pencil is great for quickness and ease of application but it’s a really creamy texture so it does smudge quite easily before it dries down which takes around half an hour. Once it’s on it lasts so well, I only had to top up after I had eaten dinner. I think the Bobbi Brown version is easier to apply and lasts longer, I would definitely recommend a lip liner with the Kiko one.

It also comes with a pencil sharpener like the Bobbi Brown Art Sticks do, which is a great plus.

YSL Quilted Bag Dupe

Hi Everyone,

Thanks to the blogging community and instagram going mad for YSL’s quilted beauty, I found myself looking around for a much more purse friendly option! Luckily I found this amazing dupe in New Look and I have to say it’s one of my favourite bags for a long time!

Its slightly different to the YSL shape due to it having zips and no flap over the top, but the quilted pattern is so similar. The size of this New Look version is perfect for fitting in all my everyday essentials and it’s black of course so it pretty much goes with everything!

I’ve really been obsessed with this western belt lately and so I used this trend in my outfit. I love the mix of pastels and white with black leather for a contrast.

April Favourites

Hi Everyone,

So for the first time I thought I’d show you all of the things I’ve been loving the most through the past month. These will include beauty, fashion and other random bits!

Beauty Favourites

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I picked this up after hearing quite a few youtubers talk about it and I’m in love! It’s got an amazing consistency; I get really dry skin but this isn’t drying at all and feels so light when you put it on yet it has a medium coverage. There are only 2 colour options though and luckily the Light/Medium suits my skintone, but if you are any paler then this might not work for you.

My mum bought me this as a present and I’ve been loving using it lately! I wear it under my foundation and then over the top once I’ve finished all of my make up and it not only keeps my make up in place for a long time but it also feels so refreshing.

I’ve always wanted a tangle teezer but couldn’t bring myself to pay the price of one, so when I saw this in Pound World of all places, I had to give it a go! Obviously it’s not going to be anywhere near as good or sturdy, but for the price it’s a really amazing brush. It’s comfortable to hold and considering I have super knotty hair, it doesn’t tear it as much as other brushes I have tried.

This is honestly one of the best skin care purchases I have ever made, it’s moisturising and it makes my skin so soft. I have almost finished the whole pot in a month as I’ve been using it both morning and night!

I apologise for the state of these lipsticks, you can tell they’re well used! I would really recommend trying the Bobbi Brown Art Stick if you love a matte lip but hate your lips getting really dry. They aren’t massively moisturising but not drying either, they have a satin finish and the pigmentation of them is amazing. It also helps that they are both a liner and a lipstick so it’s easy to apply in a rush!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My final beauty favourite is this lip liner from New Look; when I haven’t been wearing the Bobbi Brown art sticks, I have been wearing this with gloss over the top. It’s really creamy to apply and stays put for a long time.

Random Favourites

In April I watched this brilliant program called Thirteen on BBC iPlayer, it was really gripping and interesting and definitely worth a watch! It’s a drama series based on a girl who has escaped from being trapped in a cellar, it sounds a bit grim but I promise you it’s really well done!

My final favourite is a youtuber and blogger called Josie from Fashion Mumblr. Her youtube is amazing, she posts some brilliant content including loads of fashion and beauty which of course I love! But her blog is also stunning too. She is also as obsessed with Quay sunglasses as I am!

You can find her blog here and her youtube here.

Let me know if this was something you enjoyed reading so I can continue these blog posts each month!?

Much Love,
