Pretty Tough

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone,

When I saw this top hanging up in the shop, I just knew I had to have it! The feminine ruffles, the pretty fabric and soft colour, I fell in love. Styling it for my blog was a must and I really wanted to contrast the femininity of it in my outfit. I decided to pair it with these ripped white jeggings and this pleated black bomber jacket which mixes pretty and tough perfectly.

I have to talk about these jeggings though; I have wanted to wear ripped jeans for so long and being in a wheelchair makes it near impossible as jeans can be so uncomfortable! I have mentioned jeggings from Select in previous posts including this one and when they released the ripped version I was super excited!

My sister said these trainers look like posh bowling shoes and I can’t deny it! But I love the contrast of silver and black. They’re real leather and I managed to pick them up in the sale so I got a bargain as they’re amazing quality and fit my fat feet really well!!

Summer Makeup Look

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone!

As it’s summertime now, I wanted to give you an update on the make up I’ve been wearing lately! I’ve recently been on my honeymoon as you may know and the majority of this look I wore religiously from one day to the next as it’s so simple!

I’ve been going for a simple coppery/peach eye, using dark eyeshadow on my lash line so it’s super quick and I’m not faffing around for hours trying to do perfect eyeliner! I’ve also upped my highlight game after purchasing a certain beauuuutiful palette that I will be reviewing in a couple of weeks, so keep your eyes peeled for that!

If you want to know anymore on the brushes or techniques I’ve used, then please leave a comment below.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Products I used;

– Body Shop Vitamin E Moisturiser
– Too Faced Born This Way Foundation – Vanilla
– Maybelline MasterBrow – Deep Brown
– Make Up Revolution Iconic Lights and Contour Palette
– Milani Baked Blush – Luminoso
– Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette (hands down one of my favourite ever palettes!!) – I used the shades; White Peach, Nectar, Luscious in the crease, Cobbler under my eye and Talk Derby to me on my lash line
– Benefit Rollerlash Mascara
– Tarte Lights, Camera Splashes Mascara on bottom lashes
– Becca Jaclyn Hill Palette – Champagne Pop

Hi Everyone!

Can I just say, photographing a blog post on a cruise ship in the middle of the atlantic ocean isn’t easy! The wind was blowing everything, including my hair and my dress…! So I’m lucky I actually got some reasonable photos to show off this outfit! I actually picked this dress up whilst I was in New York and I love the colour and style of it. The pattern is almost like a china plate with the blue and white which is pretty, but I love how the cut out shoulders add a different dimension and cover the top of my arms which I am so conscious about!

Another thing that I really struggle with is my feet; because I am in a wheelchair permanently, I have very bad circulation and due to part of my condition my feet are very puffy and it’s so difficult to buy shoes! I hate the look of my feet but this blog is all about being confident in who you are no matter what, so I’m embracing them for the sake of these incredible shoes!! The copper colour is amazing, they are so comfortable as they are real leather and since buying these, they have actually gone in the sale!

I also need to give a little mention to this handbag of dreams. Is there any other accessory (apart from the necklace – I’ve gone a bit wife/mrs crazy!) more perfect for my honeymoon?! I think not!

USA Sephora Beauty Haul

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone,

So as you know, I’m obsessed with make up! And when I was on my honeymoon and we got to explore parts of America, I knew I had to make the most of visiting Sephora in the USA! I had saved up money for a long time purely for this part of the trip, so you can see why I got so much!

I wanted to talk about each piece individually and my opinions on them but I just haven’t had time since we got back to test everything out! I’m sure some things I love will feature in my July favourites, but if you want to hear about anything in particular, then please comment below and i’ll let you know what I think!

I’ve linked all of the photos, so just click on it and it’ll take you straight to the product on the Sephora website!

Hi Everyone!

So here I am back in the UK and the weather still isn’t fantastic! Layering is so important in this country as it can be boiling hot one moment and freezing the next and this jacket is perfect as it’s warm but not too thick.

This top was so cheap but the print on it makes it look much more expensive and it’s a peplum style which is great for me in a wheelchair as it sits really well. I love the aztec style and wanted to pair it with accessories which complimented the earthy tones.

June Favourites

Hi Everyone!

So I’m actually writing this post a day before I’m due to set sail for my honeymoon! Ironically I’ll be back today when it’s going live. I’m sorry for the lack of posts whilst I’ve been away but I just wanted to completely relax away from the internet! I can’t wait to show you and review all the amazing places we’ve been, I’ll have lots of content coming your way!

Make Up Favourites

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So here we are at my slightly late June Favourites, I hope you enjoy reading all about them.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Kiko – Scrub & Peel Wipes

So as you may have seen, Kim Kardashian featured these on her snapchat saying they were her favourites and I have to agree! I’ve been using them since February on and off but in the past month about once or twice a week and they are so nice to give your face an amazing exfoliation and to make your skin baby soft.

Benefit – Roller Lash Mascara

I have had this Mascara from Benefit for a while and for some reason when I first tried it I never got on with it but after re-discovering it after a make up clear out, I started using it again in June and I’ve fallen in love with it! I only wear it on my top lashes because I always wear waterproof mascara on my bottom lashes and I’ve found that this can smudge quite easily. But on my top lashes this curls and separates my lashes perfectly and it’s super dark.

Pur – Correcting Primer

I got this in my M&S Beauty Box and it’s been in my make up bag ever since! It’s a lovely formula, really easy to apply and although it’s only a primer it has a good coverage with a subtle sheen which makes my skin look super glowy and fresh. I sometimes wear this on it’s own if I don’t want to wear foundation.

Mac – Finally Free Lipstick

I bought this lipstick because not only do 100% of the profits benefit the transgender community in the UK (so by buying this lipstick you’re basically doing a good deed!) but also because I just adored the shade! It’s a nude but a dark rose pink nude which is so flattering for every skin tone.

Swell – Ultimate Protect and Renew Hair Serum

Because I have thin hair, it tends to get really frizzy and knotty easily so I wanted something to help stop this. I have been using this serum from Swell and it’s made the ends of my hair so much more smooth and glossy. I apply it after I have washed my hair, I use around a pea-sized amount in the palm of my hands and then just rub it into the lengths of my hair (not on the roots) and blow dry as normal. It’s something easy and quick to apply which really has made a difference.

Too Faced – Sweet Peach Eye Palette

Ok, so my final beauty favourite is a bit cheeky as it was limited edition and it’s no longer available in the UK.. but I just had to mention it as it’s the only eye palette I’ve been using this month! As per usual for all Too Faced palettes, the eye shadows are so buttery and easy to blend, with amazing pigmentation. I love the range of colours in this palette as I’m a big fan of peaches and browns, especially in summertime. I would definitely recommend trying a different Too Face eye palette such as the Chocolate Bon Bon palette as I’ve only ever heard good things about them!

Random Favourites

So I only have one random favourite this month and that has to be Orange is the New Black! It came back onto Netflix with it’s fourth series on 17th June and it has been amazing so far! Because of going away, I only got to episode 7 and I can’t wait to see the rest once I’m back!!

What were your favourites for June? Any recommendations of things I should try this month?

Much Love,
