Sequin Mermaid Dress

Happy New Year! Well as of tomorrow Happy New Year’s Eve…

I’ll be celebrating dressed in a combination of sequins and a variety of faux furs- because what better way is there to celebrate? I feel like an actual mermaid in this ASOS dress, the sequins brush side to side to create the illusion of scales. Although I still have legs so I’m doing alright really. I searched high and low for the perfect sequin dress and am really pleased with myself for coming across this baby. The only thing I might give a miss is my ear cuff, I always think they’re going to be a good idea because they look so cool but a few hours down the line and my ears can’t take the pain any longer. Not too practical- no?

What are your New Years plans?

Cool Toned Winter Makeup

makeup2makeup makeup4makeup3

Hey Everyone! Just a quick makeup look tonight inspired by silvery, frosty winter tones… That makes sense in my head at least. On my eyes I have used shades Verve, Pistol and Blackout from my Naked 2 palette. I’ve got Illumasqua Intense Lipgloss in Facade on my lips. Plenty of highlighting to brighten up my under eyes and it’s as simple as that.

In other news only four more shifts until Christmas! This is the first time in about 5 years I’ve been able to spend more than one day with my family over Christmas so you could say I’m a tinyyyy bit excited right now…

Howdy Guys! Long time no speak, well it feels that way. I’ve been super busy and to be honest kind of ill lately so my blogs been feeling a little neglected. But sometimes somethings gotta give! Things will only get worse the closer to Christmas we get. (I wish I had the little moaning face emoji to insert here)

I’m attempting to get back into the game with a few photos of this little check skirt. This is unfortunately sold out online but I have seen it in stock in several Topshops recently- yes I’m that sad that I’ve been in more than one Topshop in the past few weeks… Don’t judge me. They also have a really cute and similar burgundy version that I’ve linked above. It was one of those items that stared at me for ages at work but the hanger just didn’t do it justice. It was a good choice to try it on though. I think it’s got an 80s vibe which is sort of cool right now.

PS Yes I’m completely aware you can see my WHITE bra through my top but I forgot my vest on this occasion… Sorry about it.

Winter Purple Make Up

purplemakeup12purplemakeup10It feels really good to get a few beauty posts back on my blog. I think I can get a little bored of doing the same thing over and over, sometimes I even feel that i’m just doing outfits because I feel like it’s what other people want to see… Although I do think make up works a lot better in tutorial videos so that could be an idea to try out?

So I’ve just went for my classic base for this look and I have contoured using my Illumasqua Duo but it hasn’t translated very well on camera. Leaving me with a big round face- the joys! For my eyes I’ve used a mixture of shades from my MAC A Passionate Quest Quad and Loreal Gel Liner applied with my Zoeva Liquid Liner Brush. I’m wearing Eyelure 116s on my lashes. I have MAC Lipglass in Rebel on my lips; I always think its going to come out a lot darker but if you want a more dramatic look it can alternatively be applied over a purple toned lipstick.
