The MUA Matte Palette

MUA Matte Palette
 
 
This is a really quick post to tell you about my new make up fave..... The MUA matte palette.
 
Why do I love this palette?
 
  • It is extremely affordable at £4 and is great for those who may want to practise doing smokey eyes
  • The dark colours are extremely pigmented and if used with a primer they last all day
  • I have dark eyebrows so I can use the dark brown colours as a brow powder
  • As the colours are matte they are perfect for an everyday look. I use the dark brown in my socket with a light shimmer in my inner corner to create a gorgeous night time look.
  • The palette contains shades for every skin tone
Since buying this palette I have used it every single day. Definitely worth purchasing ladies.

Tartan sweetheart

TARTAN DRESS TARTAN DRESS 4 TARTAN DRESS 2
 
Dress-  c/o Chiara Fashion
Bag- New Look
Shoes & Floral Crown- Primark
 
 
Simply for appreciation purposes I braved the cold this morning to take pictures of this GORGEOUS dress from Chiara Fashion (It's a good job the top is padded!!) For a girl with no waist the cut of this dress is perfect as it gives me some shape and length falls just in the right place. I am also a fan of a sweetheart neckline as it gives me some much needed definition in the chesticle area!
 
 I decided to keep it simple with the accessories as the print is quite loud so I added my floral crown for some grunge and then for a different look I added a simple belt with gold detailing to make it more chic. I am going to wear this outfit tonight for a meal with the girls.
 
The dress is only £9.95 in the sale.

House of Fraser Denim Blogger Challenge

House of fraser Challenge- Put together your favourite denim look from House of Fraser
 
I haven't taken part in a blog challenge for a while so I thought it was about time I got my creative juices flowing. It's no secret that I am a massive fan of oversized jumpers so I decided to focus my outfit around this gorgeous powder blue one by Warehouse. I  love wearing rolled up skinny jeans paired with a grungy biker jacket and ankle boots, I also love contrasting prints so with this combo of leopard print and houndstooth we are onto a winner!!
 
. I think this outfit is so me and is perfect for autumn. I hope you like my choices.

Winter wonders

Coat- Next. This coat is so gorgeous, I spotted it in the window the other day and it was instant love!
Boots- I have just recently discovered Heelberry, they have the most amazing selection of ankle boots it was hard to decide a favourite.
Perfume- This is the summer edition of flowerbomb, it is slightly more of a spicy scent compared to the normal perfume and is definitely more my cup of tea.
Blusher- I swatched some sleek blushes for the first time last week and straight away I wanted them all. This shade is perfect for autumn and has such a scrummy name....pomegranate!
Dress- I will always love monochrome, I love it even more when it is in a cute print.

Jumper, scarf & shoes- Primark
Jeans- Zara
Jacket- Debenhams
Bracelet- Dorothy Perkins
 
 
After buying my pink waffle jumper feat in my last post I decided I wanted another in a neutral shade. This one is a gorgeous off white colour and it has a really nice rose gold zip down the back of it which I forgot to photograph. The scarf was a mere £2, it has ugly tassel's on which I managed to cleverly disguise but for such a bargain who currressss, nothing the scissors can't fix!

I know my outfits all seem to consist of Primark at the moment but depressingly it's all I can afford. Do you guys mind?

Pink & silk pyjamas

Jumper, Trousers & Shoes- Primark
Necklace- H&M
 
 
I succumbed to the pink jumper craze!! In my former life I hated pink but I think I have been converted. I know it's the wrong shade of pink but baby pink doesn't go with my pale skin, it makes me look translucent!
This gorgeous waffle jumper was only £8 from Primark. As you can imagine the material is reflected in the price, it's a bit scratchy but nothing a long sleeved top underneath cant fix.
I decided to keep my outfit simple as these silky pyjama-esque style trousers do all the talking, I love black and white with pink...such a gorgeous combination of colours.
 
Hope you have all had a nice weekend so far?

Biker Jacket & Beanie

Stripe jumper stripe jumper 3

Biker Jacket- F&F
Jumper- H&M
Shoes & Beanie- Primark
 
I bought this biker jacket from Tesco last week for £15 in the sale but I felt like it was a tad too big...what do you think?
The quality is really nice and I love the pop of cobalt blue in the lining but my arms are so short they disappear into the sleeves!!!!

I have dragged a picture out of my archives as I am struggling to take outfit photos in this abysmal weather. I know it's cheating but forgive me?
 
I absolutely love oversized jumpers in the winter. You can throw them over a pair of skinny jeans, stick on some boots and voila....stylish in seconds. Here are some of my fave highstreet picks

Tartan & floral grunge

floral and tartan2 Floral and tartan floral and tartan3 DSC_0181

Shirt- Primark
Crop- New Look
Skirt- Forever 21
Boots- F+F
 
This outfit was inspired by a look I saw in ASOS magazine. Admittedly it's getting a bit cold now for crop tops but I just love this grungy look so much. I always wear the skirt for work so its nice to wear it in a different way, it was also a bargain at just £6.
I am on the look out for some cut out boots so if anyone knows of any that don't cost an arm and a leg (cough cough TOPSHOP) then please let me know.
