OOTD: folk print

 TOP - Primark, SHORTS - Topshop, BOOTS - eBay, WATCH - Fossil

I adore the print of these shorts so much, I actually have stolen them from my sister as I love them so much! Seriously tempted to buy the matching top too.

Sorry I haven't been that active over the past month, just as I get back into blogging, life gets busy again and I just end up not being able to keep up with everything. Hopefully sometime in the near future I'll be able to post of a regular basis and actually keep up with it!

REVIEW: Benefit Push Up Gel Liner


Now I have to admit, I wasn't hugely excited about this new release from Benefit, purely because I'm not a massive black eyeliner fan. I certainly don't have the time or effort to use it on a daily basis and to be completely honest I much prefer a smoky eye when going out, which means I am mostly using just a kohl pencil. However when I do occasionally wear black eyeliner I do love to use gel liner over liquid, so for Benefit to release a gel liner in pen liquid liner packaging I think is a great idea!

The pen has a twist up feature at the bottom which at first is incredibly confusing having to twist the pen a little at a time for ages so as not to end up twisting loads of product out, however once you have got past that initial twist it is much better... although sometimes I do get a bit twist happy and end up with more product than I had bargained for!! Despite all that the gel liner applies like a dream with this pen, so quick and easy! Its very simple to build up the product to get a thick line and its just as easy to get a thin line too. Another plus point is it's a waterproof formula so the lasting power is pretty amazing! This product hasn't completely converted me to using black eyeliner on a regular basis however I will definitely be using it a lot more from now on!

Another new release from Benefit that works alongside the two other They're Real products is the They're Real Remover. It's a creamy, gel based formula that is formulated to remove waterproof make-up. I really like this, its removes eye makeup really easily and I think it's a really good alternative to all the oil based removers that are on the market!

Have you tried either of these? What did you think?

OOTD: white mesh

TOP - Topshop, JEANS - Topshop, CONVERSE - Schuh

I can't believe how fast these weeks are going, I feel like my summer is disappearing in front of my eyes, madness! This top is from Topshop and me and my sister fell in love with it as soon as we saw it!! It goes with literally everything and is so good for dressing up jeans and shorts. I hope you've all had a lovely week!

Instagram Favourites #1

I have been absolutely loving instagram (instagram: emilyyblane, if you fancy checking mine out!) lately, both posting photos and scrolling through my feed. So I thought it'd be a good idea to share some of my favourite instagram accounts every few weeks!!

Firstly one of my all time favourite instagram accounts has to be the gorgeous Em Sheldon's!
instagram: emshelx

It's full of outfits, pretty views and plenty of cocktails (which I have to admit is one of my favourite kind of photos to look at!). Warning you will be completely and utterly jealous of all the places she is visiting this summer!!

Secondly I love reading life and motivational quotes and one of my favourite instagrams for that is Asem Quotes.
instagram: asemquotes

Plenty of inspirational quotes that I love reading throughout the day!

Thirdly I'm a sucker for a beautiful picture and Bethany's instagram account is full to bursting with them.
instagram: bethanymarieco

It's basically just full of amazing photos that I could honestly look through all day.

Whats your favourite instagram account?

OOTD: jewel prints

DRESS - Primark, BOOTS - eBay, WATCH - Fossil

I adore the print on this dress, couldn't believe it when I found it in Primark of all places!! It literally fits like a glove and the colours are absolutely stunning! Not bad for a tenner.

I've had such a busy week, finally got a job for the summer, which is great as it means I won't be so skint all the time (life of a student..). Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

OOTD: simple greys

CARDIGAN - H&M, TOP - Topshop, SHORTS - New Look, BOOTS - Topshop

During the summer I can honestly say that I live in denim shorts!! Seriously such an easy outfit to wear, denim shorts + silky cami = dream combo at the moment. My outfits are getting so monochrome at the moment, so much so that my family keep joking that I match with the new puppy (see my instagram for photos!). I don't know what it is but I'm just so drawn to black and white clothes, however I have ordered some more coloured stuff lately so will be showing you guys those when they arrive!

Summer LOVES #2


I'm loving this hot weather and it definitely means that all the summer beauty products are coming out!

Sleek Face Contour Kit - Light
I have been after this palette for absolutely ages but could never find it in my local superdrug. However I finally got my hands on it and I completely understand what all the hype was about!! The contour colour is perfect for summer, at first I was expecting it to be much too warm but if you use it sparingly it looks amazing. I am still unsure about the highlighter though, I'm not a big highlighter fan and I just find it a bit too shimmery.

Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm
This is another product that I've heard so much hype about and so despite the hefty price tag, I decided to give in and buy it. Its a really thick, buttery lip balm which melts when you apply it to your lips. It makes lips so soft, I absolutely love it.

Maybelline The Falsies Volum' Express - Waterproof
This is by far the best waterproof mascara I have ever come across. You only need a couple of coats for super big lashes and it literally does not budge! Perfect for holidays.

Revlon ColourBurst Matte Balm - Complex
I love this matte balms from Revlon and this nude shade is perfect for summer! Not too orangey and the formula is amazing.

Collection Lasting Gel Nail Polish - Coral Reef
This coral colour looks amazing with a tan, I love the formula too. I wish they did a greater range on colours as it is probably one of my favourite formulas.

Essie 'Absolutely Shore' Nail Polish
The perfect mint shade, and probably my all time favourite summer polish!
