FOTD and OOTD: Motley Crue - Urban Outfitters, Topshop, Primark with Makeup Geek Vegas Lights Pigment

Wednesday, 18 February 2015

Top: Urban Outfitters, Jeans: Topshop, Cardigan: Primark, Boots: Primark, Necklace: Lyla Loves, Bag: Primark, Beanie Boohoo, Teddy coat: Topshop

Hey everyone!
Here is a wintery sort of OOTD featuring this Motley Crue tee shirt which I bought in the Urban Outfitters black Friday sale and have become obsessed with. This top is also featured in the Grunge date night outfits video on my Youtube channel so feel free to check it out.

I have to talk about this pigment though, lord above. Makeup Geek Vegas lights was beamed down by celestial alien gods. Yes its hella messy because it has no sifter but it is the perfect glittery copper shade that looks stunning on blue or green or any eyes to be honest. This is one of my favourite pigments at the moment so, buy it.

I layered this fluffy, speckled cardigan over it which is from Primark. This cardigan is amazing because not only is it super soft, it also has huge pockets which provide a cosy little pouch for my iphone. I think I have a problem with having to hold my phone constantly or at least being able to see it, does anyone else find it comforting to have that smooth screen within reach at all times of the day?

Primark also turned out the grey croc shoulder bag and these knee high boots which were reduced to £15 and provide the perfect amount of height for day time. I originally wanted a pair of over the knee boots but I felt I looked too much like this:

Whatever happened to Bratz dolls anyway? Did barbie sue them? Why did they not have a nose? So many important questions...

OOTD: The Birds Part II - Topshop, H&M, Aliexpress

Tuesday, 6 January 2015

Top: Aliexpress, Rings, H&M, Necklaces: H&M and Aliexpress, Jacket: Topshop, Jeans: Topshop, Boots: Aliexpress

Here's a quick OOTD featuring some things I got for Christmas, one of which is this unusual jumper from the wholesale website Aliexpress. It was only £10 but it's very unusual so I really like this piece! 

I always wear a lot of jewellery and my new favourite combination is the coin necklace, also from Aliexpress, stacked with this eagle necklace from H&M - another Christmas gift from my mum.

My best friend and I literally have no willpower and opened our presents on the 14th of December, her presents are always amazing and I was a shrieking mess throughout the ordeal. We also bought each other tattoos as an even earlier Christmas present which was very exciting. 

More information on my piercings and tattoos was requested so here is a link to a Youtube video with Charlotte explaining all the gory details!

Her mum bought me a Topshop gift card which I used to buy this leather jacket because I had been obsessing over it for weeks, part of my thing for white clothing at the moment. My lips is a rather questionable grey colour which I am undecided about, courtesy of Lime Crime Chinchilla.

Is it just me or does it feel like the Christmas and New Year excitement has died very suddenly? Now I'm back in college and there's talk of exam revision which I am so not emotionally prepared for. I just want to put on my fleeced, cuffed pyjamas and get back in bed!

P.S apologies for the photo sizing, the app I usually use to edit is glitching out...

OOTD: Holier - Perforated tee shirt, Topshop collar necklace, Leather pants

Tuesday, 30 December 2014

So Christmas was a five days ago now, it seems to have been over in a flash and I'm desperate to drag out the rest of this holiday as much as possible! 

This tee shirt is despised by my Mum who thinks it's hideous, which it sort of is but I have a tendency to gravitate towards ugly or abnormal pieces. Anyway, I found it in Matalan and decided to buy it because I rarely wear any colour. The floral design contrasts the sporty feel of the perforated material which is cool and I like how it has a dipped hem at the back which will be perfect with shorts in Summer, I know it's way off yet!

I am wearing it with a simple collar necklace from Topshop and my trusted coated jeans, also from Topshop... as are my boots, hey at least there was one non-Topshop item in this outfit!

My eyeshadow is Mac Cranberry blended out with Peaches blush also by Mac, I've been really into warm toned shadows lately and so I was super happy to get some new pans for Christmas to fill my palette. I will be uploading some makeup/beauty related posts soon so stay tuned.

Hope you all had an amazing Christmas xx

OOTD: Ripped boyfriend jeans and yet another statement necklace...

Tuesday, 11 November 2014

  Tee shirt: Topshop, Jeans: Primark, Boots: Topshop, Necklace: Topshop, Bag: Vintage

I always have trouble finding jeans that fit my incredibly short legs, unless I want to pay £40 in Topshop... The good thing about these jeans is I can hack off the ends with a pair of nail scissors and it looks like they were meant to be that way! Always a bonus for those who are completely incompetent at DIY fashion...

After posting this outfit, I realised that all except for the bag and jeans are actually from Topshop... hmm I guess the staff discount did come in handy after all. To be fair, they are mostly sale items. The necklace is my most recent purchase and yes, I do not need another necklace, this blog alone is evidence enough of that, however, I was looking for a longer necklace as most of mine are collar styles. I really like the crystal boho details on it and it goes really well over printed tee shirts too.

My lipstick is Mac feel my pulse from the temperature rising collection, It's a cremesheen but leaves a lovely stain on the lips which prolongs the wear. I've been obsessed with purple lipstick lately, have you seen NARS Dominique audacious lipstick? *sighs* 

I'm already so excited for Christmas and I am currently compiling my list which is hindered by my mum's resentment of my makeup hoarding... It seems to be coming around really fast this year because I've been so busy lately! I went to the Circa Waves gig in Manchester last Friday night which was amazing, you can watch the vlog here :)

Let me know what's on your Xmas list this year <3

New camera and autumn favourites / inspiration

There is something about dark Autumn nights that just makes you feel so excited for the things that are yet to come. I went out for an evening walk with the dog and took this photo on a nearby bridge, the motion photo feature on my new camera is probably my favourite thing about it and so forgive me if I tend to over-use it in upcoming posts.

In terms of music I have been loving Royal Blood's album and also Radiohead - 'All I need' is one of my all time favourite songs. After Charlotte bought a vinyl player, I realised that I never really appreciate an album as a whole as I'm always flicking between artists. This has really got me wanting a vinyl player for when you want to pass time just listening to music and relaxing.

After getting my first ever tattoo, I am already hooked and planning a more intricate piece. I found Sasha Tattooing on Pinterest and fell in love with her work, currently considering something like this with wings but the placement would be around the rib area.

I recently said goodbye to the top stud of my triple - now double forward helix piercing after losing it at a concert. I saw a picture of this tongue web piercing on Tumblr and thought, well it wouldn't be the craziest thing I've ever done *looks at wrist dermals and sighs* and its supposed to be pretty painless so..... I don't know this could be on the cards, let me know what you think.
