May, for me, has been a month of new finds and some re-discoveries. The above picture shows most of the products I have written about in this post. Might as well just get on with it...

Rediscovered Jewel


About a year or so ago I was browsing the Topshop make-up stand...as usual...and I came across the shade 'Jewel'. At first I had only seen the bottom of the tube and originally planned to open it and question who would wear that odd pastel shade of orange...and then I opened it. I couldn't have been more surprised.

OOTN: Dinner With Friends


As I was headed out for a meal with my work friends, I was dressed up and I thought I might as well shoot a quick OOTN (outfit of the night).


I wanted to wear my new trousers from Boohoo which are harem style and are navy, with a white sailor-esque chain print. I paired these with a simple cream top which has a paisley pattern (that I would say is engraved into the fabric - but I will have a picture below so this is clearer). As I wanted a bit more smart and a bit less casual, I added an oversized black blazer and some monochrome cut-out flats - I think it was the perfect balance!

First Impressions: Night Owl Make-Up Kit - Real Techniques



When Nic and Sam from Pixiwoo released their Current Favourites Video and first advertised their 2 limited edition make-up palettes, I went straight to the Real Techniques website. There are two palettes: Modern Natural - a lovely neutrals palette, and Night Owl - a set of darker and more intense shades.
Retailing at $25 USD (£14.89GBP) each, the palettes are of reasonable price. Unfortunately, I could only choose one as I'm supposed to be saving money...woops

Golden

So tonight I went a little gold and, successively, selfie crazy... But hey, all in the name of art, right? ...Right?

The Fluro-Split




***

I first saw this skirt in a fashion magazine a few months ago and ever since I've been eyeing it up. Every trip to Topshop would result in umm's and ahh's over whether or not I should buy it. Long story short...I caved.

Rome - November 2013


At the end of last year my mum treated me to a short trip to Rome, Italy. I'm so thankful that she invited me because it was a great opportunity for me to learn about the city as well as take lots of photographs!

This post is just to share some of my favourites from our long weekend...

Current Evening Skincare Routine!





Hello you,

Skincare can be a bit of a chore, and with various different products claiming various different things, the whole thing can become rather confusing! This simple routine that I've settled into over the last few months has been really beneficial to my skin, and has improved the overall appearance of it - which is never a bad thing, if you ask me! My skin is dry/dehydrated and sensitive, but in the warmer weather can get a little oily through the T-zone area. This means that the products I use have to be able to cater for whatever my skin throws at me. I have always been quite lucky in so far as I never got many spots when growing up and that remains the same nowadays - unless I react badly to a particular product, that is. Even so, I like to keep my skincare routine fairly simple as to avoid any potential break out situations!

Top 5 Spring Make-up Picks!




Hello you,

I don't seem to have kept up with my blog very well...or even at all! Let's call this a fresh start?

Today I'm going to write about my Top 5 make-up picks that I've loved using in the ever-so-slightly warmer weather (which I guess you could call Spring?) that England's been seeing recently!
