TOP - H&M, SHORTS - New Look, SHOES - Topshop, NECKLACE - Pull&Bear, WATCH - Fossil

I love simple outfits like this for the summer, a nice slouchy top and some high wasted shorts and you're all set! Please excuse the pasty legs, definitely need to get some fake tan on them! 

Hope you guys are enjoying the sun!

REVIEW: Rimmel ScandalEyes Shadow Sticks

 L - R, Tresspassing Taupe, Bad Girl Bronze, Buffing, Bulletproof Beige

Sorry for the lack of posts in the past week, I was having technical issues but all is now sorted so I'm hoping posts will get back to normal! These shadow sticks from Rimmel were released quite a while ago but they have just released some new shades which I am absolutely loving so I thought it was about time that I share my thoughts on them. I use these as a base under my eyeshadows and they seriously make them last all day. The formula is really creamy and very blendable and also sets after about a minute making them the perfect base for powder eyeshadows.

I have the shades Tresspassing Taupe which is a dark brown taupe, Bad Girl Bronze which is a gorgeous dark bronze with gold flecks, Buffing which is a pale shimmery taupe and Bulletproof Beige which is a pale shimmery gold. I think these shades are all amazing and I love that the range is made up of mostly neutrals which I think is fairly unusual for a high street brand! My favourite at the moment has to be Buffing becauses its such a pretty shade and looks amazing under Mac's Patina however I can honestly say I get so much wear out of all of these shades! For only £5.49 you can't really go wrong.

What do you think? Will you be giving these a try?

OOTD: stripy shift

DRESS - Topshop, BOOTS - eBay, WATCH - Fossil, NECKLACE - ASOS

This is such a simple outfit but I absolutely love it! This dress is from Topshop and although it is super short, I can't wait to wear it throughout summer. I'm seriously loving stripes at the moment, I think they make even the simplest of dresses or tops look good.

I'm now home for Easter which is so so nice, got so much work to do though which isn't so great!

Happy Mothers Day &The Perfect Brownies!


Happy Mothers Day!
We always have lots of family around for Mothers Day and so this year I decided I was going to make some brownies. Previously I haven't had much luck with brownies however these ones turned out so nice and fudgey!! They were definitely a real treat this Mothers Day. I used a recipe from a website called Baking Mad which has so many lovely recipes!



You will need:
150g butter
200g plain chocolate (I used milk chocolate)*
100g golden caster sugar
75g dark muscovado sugar
3 egg
75g plain white flour
50g white chocolate chips (I used dark)*


The process is really simple. Melt the chocolate and butter, then using an electric mixer, mix in the sugar and eggs one at a time. Finally add the flour and chocolate chips and then put in the oven at 150 degrees for 30 minutes, the recipe says 30 minutes however I had to leave them for 40 minutes for them to be cooked all the way through!

They were seriously so good, and i would definitely recommend giving them a go!
Hope you all had a lovely Mothers Day.

OOTD: grey jumper

JUMPER - Primark Mens, SHORTS - New Look, BOOTS - Topshop, NECKLACE - Miss Selfridge, WATCH - Fossil

Finally going home tomorrow for Easter and I cannot flipping wait! This has been such a long semester and I am definitely ready for a break and to see all my friends and family at home. I love this jumper from Primark, I think you can find so many good things in the Mens section. This one came is loads of different colours I was tempted to get more but I think the colour on this one is really nice and could easily been worn in summer too!

LOVES #1


I decided that it would be quite nice to do a small post every few weeks of a few things that I've been loving. They won't always been products, sometimes I might include quotes or songs or other things like that!

Next Eau De Nude Perfume
I bought this perfume because I read somewhere that it was very similar to Chanel Coco Mademoiselle! I don't own that Chanel perfume however but I do own Chanel Chance and it has to be my all time favourite perfume ever. This one from Next is absolutely stunning and such a bargain at £7.50!! Next says it is An enticing blend of lush red fruits, voluptuous florals, powdery musk and sumptuous vanilla. If you're a fan of Chanel perfume then I would definitely recommend giving this one a try.

Aussie Mega Deep Treatment Mousse
After reading all the hype about this mousse, I was really intrigued to give it a try and see what all the fuss was about. Its basically the same as a normal mousse only you apply it to wet hair in the shower and then rinse it out after a few minutes. A strange concept however it really does make such a difference to my hair. It makes it feel so much lighter and bouncy which is perfect for people like me who have super thick hair. I use this mousse and then some sea salt for the perfect toussled beach waves, super lazy styling at its best!

Bourjois Bronzing Primer
I know this was released quite a while ago but I have been using it so much lately as we enter into Spring and Summer! Its a really light moussey textured bronzer. I don't use this as a primer but instead apply it over foundation, before powder and then blend it along my cheeks and down my nose. It looks so natural and makes me look super sunkissed, the amount of compliments I got and people asking if I'd been on holiday after wearing this was crazy! Perfect if you usually steer clear of powders too!

Let Her Go - Passenger Cover by Jasmine Thompson
This song was so popular last summer and I absolutely love it! Its one of my all time favourite songs now and I think this female cover of it is really beautiful. Well worth a listen :)

OOTD: digital florals

DRESS - Topshop, BOOTS - eBay, WATCH - Fossil, NECKLACE - Zara

I borrowed this gorgeous dress from my sister, I adore the digital floral print on it and I think the colours are stunning! However it is a super weird fit, tight top and bottom and really baggy around the middle.. Not sure I'm that keen on the fit but the print is too gorgeous not to wear! And on the plus side it does hide your tummy a bit so perfect for going out for dinner in :)

I'm loving the sun at the moment, please carry on until summer!! It makes getting up for uni ten times easier and less painful! Hope you're all having a lovely week.
