It's a floral thing...OOTD

I went out with my family for lunch to celebrate finishing university. I found this dress in Primark and it was a total bargain! I think it's the perfect dress for summer and it is so easy to dress up or down depending on where you are going.

My New Hair

So with it being summer I decided to have a bit of a hairstyle change. I have had my hair its natural colour for about and year and decided to change it up a bit. Originally I only wanted to go a bit blonder. However ended up with very blonde hair. It's taken me time to get used to it but I am in love with it now.

Barry M Lip Paint Review

I am one of those girls that is always buying new lipsticks. I'm a student so I tend to stick within the high street brands range, however I have never found a cheap lipstick that lasts all night. Until now.....

The Barry M lip paints were recommended to me by a friend so I decided to purchase one in the shade 52. It's a gorgeous bright pink that is almost a neon colour. I decided to wear it out on a night out a few days ago and I have to say this product did not disappoint. 

The lip paints lasted all night and I did not have to reapply even after eating. I am amazed about how good these lipsticks are and will certainly be purchasing more. The only downside for me is the names of each shade, the lipsticks are numbered which in my opinion isn't very creative. However this is now my new favourite lip product. 

I hope you enjoyed this review, please comment your thoughts below and follow my blog.

Beauty Haul : Beauty Favourites

Since my last post was all about fashion, I thought I would do a post showing a few products I have picked up lately as well as a few old favourites.

All of these products have become my staple beauty items for summer, here are my thoughts on each product. 

Seventeen Stay Pout Lipsticks - These lipsticks are a definite must have for summer. They are affordable at only four pounds fifty each! The colour range is amazing and I find that they last a lot longer than other high street lipsticks which I have tried. The first shade pictured above is in the colour 'kiss me quick' this is the perfect everyday shade as as you can see I have use this a lot. The next shade 'make an entrance' is my favourite shade. It's a beautiful coral colour which is perfect for summer and looks amazing with bronzed cheeks, 'Delinquent' the last shade is a gorgeous bright pink which looks amazing on pale skin tones such as myself. I would definitely recommend these lipsticks especially if you are on a budget. 

Dr Jart, Water Fuse BB Cream - This has become my favourite product for summer. It works as both a moisturiser and a makeup product which provides a nice amount of coverage to help even out the skin tone. This works really well for summer because it is so hydrating and is perfect when you don't want to wear a full foundation but still want a bit of coverage. With an added spf of 25 I definitely think that this product is worth trying. 

Collection, Shimmer Shades Blush - I like my skin to look very glowly in the summer so this blush is perfect. I chose the shade blushalicious and I think that mixed together all of the colours work well to give a bronzed glowly look to the skin as well as giving a natural rosy glow to the cheeks. 

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder - I purchased this powder after hearing so may good things about it on Youtube. I think that it works well, however I am not madly in love with the product. I think that this works best when applied with a sponge applicator rather than a brush as this does not seem to set my foundation as well. 

Collection, Fast Stroke Eyeliner - This eyeliner is by far my favourite high street eyeliner. It is a matte black which lasts all day long. It is a bit difficult to get off at night, but I still think this product is worth trying. I use this mainly when I wear false eyelashes and want something to help hold them in place. 

Barry M, Nail Paint - This nail varnish in the shade coral is an old favourite of mine. It is the perfect shade for summer and works well against my pale skin tone. I will be doing a blog post featuring my favourite nail varnishes soon where I will feature this product in more detail. 

I hope you liked this post. Please follow my blog and comment below with any requests for product reviews which you want me to post.

Vlog : Harry Potter Studio Tour

I am a massive Harry Potter fan, so when my boyfriend got me tickets to go to the studio tour in London for my birthday, I was quite literally bursting with excitement! Here are a few snaps from the day for those of you interested in going but aren't to sure what to expect. I had such a fun day, and it really was magical. I would definitely recommend going especially if you are a Harry Potter fan like myself.

Kate Spade Bag...

I thought I would do a quick post showing one of my favourite items this month. I purchased this Kate Spade bag when I visited New York in January. However I have not had the chance to wear it until recently. This month I have been using this bag not stop and I always receive compliments when I use it. I'm going to start doing more posts on my favourite items of the moment.

The Midi Skirt

Every summer I face the same problem, I'm not a fan of wearing shorts unless i'm holiday because my legs are one of those things that I am not totally confident about showing off. However I recently ordered a midi skirt from Missguided and I have been obsessed with it! I have since ordered two more and I am sure I will purchase more this summer. Its such a flattering item that paired with a crop top gives you a summer outfit without having to show off your legs if your not confident like me. I can't wait to wear these when the weather gets hotter. I will be featuring these in some OOTD's soon. Whats your summer staple ?

False Eyelash Addiction ?

I am the kind of girl who loves wearing false eyelashes on a night out, without them I feel that my outfit is not complete. So the other day when Boots had a 3 for 2 offer on all false eyelashes of course I had to stock up on them. I love Eylure lashes, in my opinion they are the easiest lashes to apply and you can re use them so many times, so I definitely get my moneys worth from each pair. I decided to pick up a couple of the twin sets for nights out when I don't want anything to over the top. I then decided to treat myself to a pair of Katy Perry lashes which I have to say I absolutely love! I wore them out the other night and they stayed on amazingly well and made my eye make-up pop. Heres a picture of how they looked once I had applied them. 

This is the finished look, let me know what you think in the comments below and tell me what your favourite false eyelashes are.
