My new makeup; L'Oreal.


I haven't talked about beauty in ages, but recently I've bought new products that I want to talk about and I love watching those makeup videos on Instagram where the ladies are beautiful and talented so I've been desperate to do beauty post! Both my Rimmel foundation and concealer ran out at the same time which is useful because I like to have the same concealer as my foundation. 

I looked around my local boots and swatched a lot. My hand was covered in different foundations! My favourite foundation was the L'oreal True Match foundation, because of the consistency which suits my dry skin and the range of shades. I enjoyed being able to match my skin tone so well. The only problem is this shade is more my summer skin than my pale winter skin, but I always blend it down my neck to avoid the horrible foundation line, but its blenability (definitely not a word) is really good.
 The coverage is about medium and I would avoid layering it to avoid the 'cakey' look, however the concealer is not high coverage. Its slightly annoying because I really need the coverage, but this would be perfect for other people who only want a little helping hand.

I love the powder! As a blogger I used the Rimmel 'stay matte' which was all the range a few years ago so I loved branching out into other products. I would really recommend it as a change as its so smooth and has a lovely finish to keep the shine away.

And now my favourite purchase! This wasn't exactly necessary but I treated myself to this stunning red lipstick so I can be ready for the festive season. I was actually really impressed with its staying power even after eating. 

Have you bought anything recently for the winter time?






New love for Midis.



I am a big dress wearer and I always have been, but shockingly I have never owned a midi dress until now. I never thought about wearing something longer in the day time or on a night out and I tend to mostly wear dresses in the summer which is the norm, right?

I always thought of longer dresses as really dressy and not for casual day wear, but obviously I was wrong. This Boohoo dress is gorgeously flowy which really contrasts with my leather jacket and boots which are worn daily in the autumn.The flowers are so autumnal that I thought it would be a great addition to my autumn wardrobe even though I wouldn't normally pick something with a pattern, especially on a big piece like this, but the mustard was so autumnal and definitely a trend this season that I had to get it. I love trying to wear the season trend in an unconventional way. Don't get me wrong, my mustard jumper has been to pieces over the years. 

This dress can be dressed up and down depending on the shoe, jacket or accessories. I flipping love this clutch bag from Primark which I only picked up because I needed a clutch for nights out, but I actually love to wear it in the day time, because of the handy wrist strap. The leather and patent leather brings together the jacket and my favourite Raid boots which will probably get a post to themselves in the future. 

I hope you like the way I've styled this midi dress and I cannot wait to explore the midi trend more.






Mini Lush Haul. Halloween edition.



Ooooooooh its that spooky time of year and Lush knows it as well as everyone else. I had a little look around and fell in love with their Halloween/Autumn items because they're just so cute, so its just a mini haul! Obviously I can't review them on how good they are in the bath as I'm saving them for when I get home. (Student accommodation isn't glamorous)

So, the first item I picked up isn't strictly Halloween, but the orangey colour is very autumnal. I don't really use bars of soap because I have always been told that they are a breading ground for bacteria. Not sure if this is true but anyway, I bought this 'Sexy Peel' soap to put in my underwear draw which you may think is weird. Who else does that? Just me? I love having some yummy soap making my draw smell nice once the smell of washing powder has faded. 'Sexy peel' has a beautiful citrus smell made up of orange and lemon.  Since getting it home the smell is less intense but I think that is generally true for lush. I can't wait to smell it every morning.

The next two are incredibly Halloweeny! Whats more Halloween than creepy cats and pumpkins? And yes the cat has see better days, but it doesn't matter too much when its in the bath. Both of the items are bubble bars which excites me so much because I love going extra when I have a bubble bath. All or nothing. I might prefer the sparkly pumpkin at the moment purely because its covered I glitter. So so pretty! 



Glitter and Glamour.



Okay, lets get back into things and what a perfect way to return to blogging! Glitter! I have recently been talking with a company called Glamour by DKUK. Have you ever wondered where all these girls on social media get their fancy make up brushes, (Who doesn't want unicorn brushes?!) interesting beauty blenders and the new fad; 'Insta Smile'? I had a good look around the website and I love all the various products, they are mostly a fashion brand, but today I am talking about the accessories that they offer. 

With starting uni I did go through the necessary Freshers week and lived to tell the tail. Sleep was limited and the dancing was everything, so being able to wear glitter was fantastically fun! Me and my friends played around with where we would put it and what colours we would use. My personal favourite was the gold glitter on the top of my cheeks like a very extra highlighter. 
It is so easy to apply, I used a makeup brush to put it onto my face and I'll be honest it will stay all night. I thought that I took most of it off before went to bed because you should always remove your makeup before bed...but I did find glitter on my pillow in the morning so its staying power has good and less good points. 

I am going to be posting about this company again and again I the future so if you have any questions about the products or the ordering then please ask! The standard delivery is 2-4 days and you have 14 days to return items. I really hope that you have a look around!
