Haul: L'Oreal Lipstick Loot

Untitled Untitled Untitled

Hello Everyone!

On my lunch break last Friday I spotted that Superdrug were doing a L'oreal Colour Riche Lipstick Flash sale and were selling them off at £2.99 each when they are usually £6.99!! So immediately the girls at work and I hurled a bunch of these beautes into our shopping baskets and submitted a rather large order!

I picked up four in total which I thought I would share with you :) 
From left to right on the swatches we have 134 Rose Royale, 229 Cliche Mania which is Matte, 132 Magnolia Irreverent & 228 VIP another Matte.

Now I know that the shades are pretty similar but I couldn't decide which ones I preferred so I thought what the heck at £2.99 each it was justifiable and summer is coming up so I'm going to get loads of use out of them... Hmmm... Well that's what I keep telling myself anyway!

I haven't had chance to wear them yet as they literally only just came through the post but from swatching them I can already tell that they are super pigmented and creamy. Also I have a feeling that these are going to be pretty long lasting as they took a while to scrub off once I'd finished taking the snaps.

I'll be sure to report back to you guys here on my little blog or over on my YouTube Channel once I've given them a proper go :)

Hope you guys are having a good week?

Lots of love

Crop Top Confidence


Hello Everyone :)

Today I wanted to talk about the crop top trend that's currently flooding the high street!

So... I'm sure I'm not the only person out there who's been loving the recent influx of cute crop tee's in the shops however being a fairly body conscious girl the thought of actually wearing one in public for the first time has certainly felt a little daunting to say the least... 

So with that in mind I thought that I would jot down some quick tips on how to feel more confident when you want to rock the crop!

Tip no1. Go for it
''Too big...?'' ''too small...?''

Crop tops are made for all shapes and sizes so don't sit and quiz yourself on whether you are too petite or curvy because the answer is; no you are not! If you feel good wearing one then thats all that matters :)

Tip no2. Styling

My favourite way to wear a CT is to pair it with some high waisted skinny jeans or a high waisted skirt that way you still feel covered up but completely on trend at the same time.

Tip no3. Ease yourself in

If you still feel nervous I'd recommend to start by wearing one around the house, garden or even on holiday. I always tend to find that I'm a little bolder with my outfit choices when abroad - why that is I'm not 100% sure... but that way you can get used to how it looks and feels and still get a lovely tan at the same time :)

Tip no.4

My final tip; as cliche as it sounds wear a smile because if you look like you are confident and happy in what you are wearing other people will see that and feel that way about you too! It's human nature to mirror body language; so stand up tall, whack on a smile and strut your stuff because you are beautiful!

Anyhoo... I know it's nerve wracking because I felt that way when I merely plodded up to the counter in Topshop to purchase the one I'm wearing in the snaps above! But like everything in life it gets easier in time and the more and more I wear mine the more 'normal' and confident I feel :) 

I hope you guys enjoyed this little post and I hope it may have given you a little confidence boost to just go for it :)

Lots of love

Long Time No Speak...

Hello Everyone!

I just wanted to check in with you lovelies and apologise for being absent for so long over here on my little blog! 

Truth is I've had a couple of personal things I've needed to work through recently and I've really struggled to find time to sit down and write up something half decent that you might be interested in reading...! 

But I wanted to let you beautes know that I'm starting to get back on track and I have a whole bunch of Spring inspired posts planned for the upcoming weeks that I'm super excited to share with you :)

Anyhoo I hope you are all well? And I will see you really soon with a Spring OOTD that I can't wait for you to see!
