The Ultimate Winter Base

October 28, 2015


When it comes to foundations, I like something a bit different everyday. Sometimes I'll just fancy a light base and other times it will be all about the coverage. I tend to go for drugstore foundations as I think there are some awesome ones available, and you can also test more of them due to their affordable price tags! I have always liked Rimmel Foundations (apart from the old Stay Matte that was a no from me), and decided to test one of their full coverage offerings. I'm never usually a full coverage kind of girl, but this one sounded right up my street. Lasting finish and comfort serum to me suggest a long lasting semi dewy base, and that is exactly what this is. I've never been one for matte foundations, and many full coverage options often are. This is perfect for the winter season, it has a great coverage as suggested and doesn't look cakey or dry on the skin. I loved this foundation instantly and would suggest it to anyone who is looking for a decent and affordable foundation. Another win from Rimmel right here!

I've been trying to branch away from just wearing black, white and grey all the time. I'm boring myself, and the world of colour looks oh-so exciting. I hadn't been into Primark for ages and I wasn't seeing too much that I liked until this caught my eye. It was such beautiful pattern and I didn't feel I could leave it on the rail. I love red as a colour and I would love to wear it more often, so this is me venturing into the world of colour and trying to change. This is the perfect top for everyday dressing with a pair of jeans or a skirt. Maybe the world of coloured clothes is one you'll see me in more...?!

IKEA Haul

October 21, 2015

You might have noticed that I've been doing a few homeware hauls recently. I'm currently in the process of redecorating my bedroom as it is in a much needed state of attention. I really like interior design, and planning how rooms are going to look makes me very excited! I've really been inspired by Scandinavian style at the moment, and this is the kind of feel I went for when planning my latest decoration project! Obviously, with IKEA being a Sweedish brand, it was a great place to find some great things in, so here is a look at what I've bought. When the room is finished if anyone is interested in seeing then let me know and I might just do a blog post...

Déjà vu

October 18, 2015














Okay, I'm holding my hands up and admitting that I've basically posted this outfit on my blog already. Last year I became obsessed with this coat, and now it is cold enough it's back again. The new addition however is this beautiful grey jumper which I have been wearing to death recently. I love autumn/winter and the fact that you get to layer up and wear coats and jumpers, but I hate being cold! So please excuse the fact that yes, you may already have seen this - but hey, we can't all have a wardrobe the size of Alexa Chung's; and if it's a good outfit then wear it again with no shame!

Texture

Autumn is the best season to play with layering and texture in your outfits. I recently picked up a pair of faux leather jeans, and have been loving them. Styling them with an oversized tee and a chunky knit scarf is the perfect combo. I went for an autumnal walk in the forest and it got me very excited for the season ahead. What's your favourite thing about autumn?
