Every girl loves a bit of sparkle...outfit post!

Hey Everyone!

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend! I'm on half term this week so I'm soooo happy to finally have a week off where I can just relax...kind of. Even though, I have revision, euuurgh. Anyway, I thought I'd do another outfit post from a party that I went to last night. I actually had time to get a photo this time as well, even though I was rushing to get ready! So here it is...

Top: Vero Moda, House of Fraser
Leggings: Marks and Spencers
Shoes: Office

I don't usually wear sequined tops and stuff, but I saw this top in House of Fraser on one of the mannequins and really liked it so I had to try it on! I was going to try and get some leather looking leggings to go with it but I was trying to save my money for going away this week, so I stuck with my good pair of black leggings which go with EVERYTHING. 

Sorry about the short post, but that's what I wore for the party last night! I'm dying my hair this evening which I can't wait for! It's in desperate need of a colouring! I should have a blog post up about that sometime this week!

MAC 'Please Me'

MAC 'Please Me'

MAC 'Please Me' is not my normal 'go-to' lipstick, I have to admit. I'm more of a nude, coral and pastel pink sort of girl. I love MAC lipsticks and this is the new addition to my collection. 'Please Me' is a dark pink shade. When I swatched it in House of Fraser, it seemed to be lighter to when I applied it to my lips. It's taken me a while to get used to it and I still don't know whether I like it or not and whether it's me. I think it's cause of my hair. At the moment I have light brown hair, well it's going ginger to be fair. I dyed it in the summer and it's in desperate need of a re-colour so, this week I'm dying it slightly darker, so it's more like my natural colour of chocolate brown. I think this is why I'm not too sure of this lipstick, because it doesn't match my hair. Weird right?
However, I have worn it a few times and people have complimented the colour of it so I guess it's not too bad ;-) Like all MAC lipsticks, they apply so well and have a creamy texture which feels great on the lips. They last a little while, however, I would've preferred it to last longer than it did. It comes at a price of £14.00 and you can buy MAC lipsticks from most department stores. I bought mine from House of Fraser.

Have you tried 'Please Me' from MAC? Let me know what you think!

My Style Icons.

Hi Everyone

Hope you're all having a good week! I thought I'd do a random post about who I admire these days and who I like to follow the style of. In the past I've followed many different celebrities and their styles, from Pixie Lott to Cheryl Cole and many other people. But lately, I've been following three main people who's style I absolutely adore! I always try to make my own style unique and original but yknow, I need a good direction to go in and that's where my Holy Bible, LOOK Magazine comes in.

So the first style icon is Caroline Flack. Gotta love the Flackers! Her style is gorgeous! I'm a hug fan of peter pan collars, high waisted shorts etc and Caroline pulls these off so well! Every week on Xtra Factor I always look out to see what she's wearing and I'm always so jel! Proper envy her style and wish I had her wardrobe! It's not only her style that I love, however, her hair is perfect and her figure...omg wish I could just have her legs. Sorry, got a little girl crush going on here but so what! I love her. Definitely one of my main style icons!

The next style icon is Mollie King from The Saturdays. I'm a huge fan of The Saturdays and I love all of their styles to be honest! But my favourite has to be Mollie. As well as her bubbly personality and gorgeous smile, her wardrobe is just unreal! She's very girly and loves her dresses with her big bags. She's always in the magazines and I love finding out where she gets her clothes from just so I can go and purchase a few! I love her hair, especially since she got it cut short. A while back, I was tempted to get my hair cut short because I loved Mollie's but I decided I couldn't leave my long hair!

The final icon is both a fashion and beauty icon for me. This is Millie Mackintosh from Made in Chelsea. Just a warning, I'm probably going to share my love of Millie with you throughout my blog cause I literally love her! She always has perfect glowing skin and I'm trying my hardest to get skin like hers! Her hair is absolutely gorgeous, a couple of months ago I had my hair dyed a similar caramel colour and I loved it. Except now it's starting to turn ginger...definitely in need of a dye! I always envy Millie and I can't wait for Made in Chelsea to start again on Monday! Monday nights are now complete!

So I thought I'd do a quick post about who's style and beauty tips I'm following at the moment. Got a busy weekend ahead. A two day induction at work! Gonna be a looooong weekend, but I've got X Factor and a chinese takeaway to look for to tomorrow night so it's all good! Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Sunday Favourites...

Hi everyone!

Hope you've all had a great weekend! So, it's that time of the week again...Sunday. How fast do these weekends go?! I don't know what to think about Sundays, I like them because it's kind of a relaxing day, visiting family etc...until it gets to that time of the day where I have to do work. Sundays are pretty much a love/hate thing with me. However, TOWIE is on tonight so that makes me happy! TOM KILBY COME AT ME!
Anyway, down to business...

Favourite Make-Up

MAC Please Me
On Friday night, me and the mother went shopping, as per, and my mam decided to treat me to a MAC lipstick. How kind?! This is Please Me. I wanted a pink lipstick and when I swatched this it looked like a peachy pink colour but when I applied it to my lips it was more of deep pink. I don't normally go for darker coloured lipstick so I have to admit, I'm going to have to wear this a few more times until I'm used to it. I do like it though! I love MAC lipsticks, they're so easy to apply and so creamy and long lasting!

Favourite Nail Varnish

Models Own Utopia
Okay, so, I think I've found my new favourite nail polish (sorry Barry M Peach Melba). I'm going to admit, this is my first Models Own nail varnish and I'm now thinking, why on earth have I not bought one before?! I've been admiring the Models Own range but I just didn't really get round to buying one. This colour is a grey/lilac colour, if that makes sense! The application is soooooo good, it glides smoothly on. The colour is so strong as well and dries so quickly! Very impressed!

Favourite Skincare Product

Cath Kidston Bluebell Hand Balm
I absolutely love Cath Kidston, it's one of my favourite brands! If I could buy everything, I would! I love all of the accessories, make up bags etc but I've never really tried the beauty products. I got this Hand Balm for Christmas and have been using it a lot recently. I apply it just before I go to bed and it leaves my hands sooo soft! It smells gorgeous too!

Favourite Make Up Brush

Real Techniques Contour Brush
So, on my blog you'll probably see a lot of comments about the Real Techniques make up brushes. They are my new little beauties. This is the contour brush which came with the Core Collection. I use it mainly for blush as it applies the right amount but, I also use it to apply highlighter on my cheekbones and brow bones and I use it for bronzer along my jawline to make it more defined.

Favourite Item of Clothing

I know what you're thinking...why has she got a Christmas jumper in October?! Well, I'm stocking up on knitwear you see and at the moment Primark have some gorgeous knitwear! I was stuck between two jumpers but I edged more towards this one. One thing you have to know about me is that I love Christmas, it's my favourite time of the year. So if you see me on my blog blabbing on about how I'm so excited for Christmas and giving you a constant reminder of how many days there are (79 DAYS!!) just go along with it ;-) Anyway, this jumper came in at £14 and it's so warm and comfy! Would highly recommend you take a trip down to Primark, I'll definitely be getting more knitwear for the Winter!

So there's my Sunday favourites for this week. Sorry it's late, been so busy doing work today and I was writing this whilst watching X Factor so I was kinda slow. Hope you all have a great week and I'll speak soon!
