Dark Eyes | Make Up Tutorial

I decided the other day I wanted to have a go at filming a make up tutorial and so, I just went with it in regards with creating the look. The finished look turned out to be a dark, bronzed eyeshadow look with winged eyeliner and nude lips and I'm really happy with how it turned out. 

It was my first time at filming and editing a video like this besides my 'Get ready with me' video. So, when I do videos like this again in the future (Which is what I'm planning on doing) I now know what to do and what not to do.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the video and find it useful in one way or another!

Layer It Blue | Outfit

So I finally mustered the courage to ask my Mum to take some outfit pictures for me without feeling like a complete weirdo. I think she gets it... maybe, then again she could just be thinking I'm slightly delusional, modelling clothes just to be vain - I hope that's not the conclusion she came to anyway.

I'm sure you'll be seeing this dress in many outfit posts in the future as it literally looks so good when layering with anything. I also have the dress in green, but on the day these pictures were taken I decided to opt for the darker, black version. 

If you haven't seen my recent haul video then you won't know about me overdoing it in primark with the fluffy jumpers... let's just say I spend a considerable amount on different colours of the same thing. Yeah, oops. But that aside (I don't even regret anything ha) I think that the pale blue stood out best against the black lace dress.
If you've read my blog a few times, you might have caught on to the fact that I like to say that everything I wear has a grunge/90s vibe (it's a bit of a problem) buttttt I can't resist the urge to bring those words up again, it's the cropped fluffy jumper okay! It just makes me think of something that Cher from Clueless would wear (aka the best film EVERRRR).

Style Icon: Pixie Lott

Pixie Lott is someone who I've always admired. Even though now, her music isn't something that I would typically listen to, I still find myself being in awe of her clothing. Now, her style isn't exactly similar to the clothes I tend to go for but, I find myself being inspired by her whole retro look that she's opted as of recent.

Pixie always seems so well put together and her outfits are always so lovely in my eyes. It is rare that she is seen without wearing garments that are patterned or of colours of various pastel shades. I particularly love the outfit she is wearing in the pictures below, I would LOVE to wear something like it, if only I had the opportunity and the guts - I'm always afraid of looking too garish, but Pixie pulls the look off effortlessly.

Upon looking through her various looks, I felt inspired to create a wishlist of pixie-eqsue items. It wouldn't be a wishlist without me desperately lusting after the items included, they would definitely make my wardrobe look a little prettier, that's for sure!

Out of all of the dresses featured in this wishlist, my overall favourite has to be the pale pink motel lace shift dress, it's so gorgeous. I like to imagine myself wearing it on a warm spring day with bare legs and cut out ankle boots - if only. 
The fluffy pink missguided dress is so strikingly similar to the outfit of pixie's above, I just had to include it in this wishlist. For some reason, marshmallows come to mind when I look at it, in all of it's dreamy pink glory (with the fluff, of course), and for that fact, it makes me want it even more. 

Continuing with the fluffy detailing trend, this is another one of my favourite pixie outfits, it's so lovely. I'm a big fan of high necks and monochrome outfits so this has it all! I also adore her two necklaces, they are so gorgeous and compliment the outfit so well. Don't even get me started on her shoes! I can't fault this outfit at all, it's all perfect.

I can envision Pixie wearing all of this, the black and white lace print shorts reminded me a little of the shorts Pixie wore in the previous pictures. 
My personal favourite though, is the matching blue paisley crop top and high waisted shorts. The two piece is making me wish summer would hurry up, it would look so good with a tan and a good old flower crown. 
I was inspired by Pixie's love of matching outfits when I created this wishlist. I myself have been slowly warming to the trend and now I can truthfully say that I see what all the fuss is about. I NEED to own a matching two piece before summertime comes around - hopefully we won't have to wait too long... (I say this with extreme doubt, I do live in England after all).

Collective Haul - Topshop, Asos, Primark, Missguided...

This video has been a long time coming, it's taken me forever to film this video as I'd been meaning to get a haul up on my channel even before Christmas! For that reason this haul is quite big as it is a collective one - I did try to cut it down as much as I could so I hope you don't mind! 

I feel that it's worth a mention that this was filmed around 2 weeks ago and there was me sounding and feeling ill while filming the haul, just getting over an unpleasant sickness and as I'm writing this blog post I am currently lying in bed, doped up on antibiotics for the second time in 2014 feeling sorry for myself :(. Seriously don't understand what I've done to get this ill, it hasn't been a good start to 2014 health wise for me anyway!

Hope you enjoy the video!

Metallic Shine | Outfit

I've never styled an outfit laid out in a neat folded layout like in the pictures above before, I had been inspired by other bloggers to do so and I really like the results plus, it makes up for the complete lack of actual outfit pictures of me wearing the attire, it was just one of those unsuccessful-nothing-seems-to-go-right days for me.

Disco Pants have been around for awhile now and I honestly never thought I'd see myself purchasing a pair. In my mind, they were exactly the kind of thing that I would just completely hate and never warm to but, as of recent, I had been feeling myself compelled to buy a pair, my judgement changed by many a fashion blogger. 
I have to say that I have had a change of heart and now, I cannot see how I survived without them in my wardrobe! They go with just about anything, the sheen of the material adding something extra to your typical, could have been mundane outfit. I've found that they are a great alternative to my go-to black high wasted skinny jeans which can often make an outfit look just that little bit too plain. And at a plus - they're super comfortable, what's not to love?
