What's In My Makeup Bag VIDEO

I filmed another video! I decided to do something which I barely ever talk about, which is makeup/beauty. I think I've only ever posted one beauty post, as its something i'm interested in, but not something I know a lot about. I mostly get my beauty 'knowledge' from beauty blogs and bloggers who know a lot more about make up than i do. However I love watching these 'whats in my makeup bag' videos, mostly because i'm nosey and its also just useful to hear many different opinions on a product you may be considering purchasing!




Thanks for watching!

25 Facts About Me VIDEO

I finally plucked up the courage to film a YouTube video and to finally start up my channel properly over the summer. I had made it one of my '20 things to do this summer' just to blog more and record YouTube videos, which will increase the amount of content and also the range of content I can put onto the internet! It was my first time sitting down to talk in front of a camera and then having to edit so please excuse me if its not that great. Any constructive criticism is welcome as I always want to improve, but please give it a thumbs up if you liked it and subscribe, which will help me out massively.





Thanks for watching :)

Current Favourites

wishlist 4

As I've recently been away in London, I thought i'd just do a quick post on the items in the online shopping world which have recently caught my eye and have made it onto my increasingly long wishlist. 

I was recently inspired by Ivania Carpio and her post on the amazing ASOS half frame sunglasses which look stunning on her so these just had to be added onto my wishlist! I have also added Dr Martens sandals as I definitely do not see enough of these around, as they are one of the most sturdy and good value for money shoe brands around.

Kimono Lovin'

KIMONO: RIVER ISLAND
TOP: TOPSHOP
SHORTS: ASOS (similar)
SHOES: ZARA
BAG: PRIMARK

Shot in a new location today to change things up a bit. I recently purchased this kimono from River Island, and even though it took a lot to bite the bullet and pay £45 for a kimono, i tried to justify it by telling myself i will wear it all throughout summer. I've had my eye on it for a while and i managed to snap up the last one in my local store, so hopefully theres still some around! I also wore it to my recent trip to Parklife festival, along with this Primark satchel which was pretty handy, but I should've definitely picked a zip up bag for a festival after encountering an attempted mugging of my phone on the nighttime!

I'm heading to London tonight for the weekend so I'm hoping to visit cool places and snap some good pictures. If anyone has any suggestions they think I'd like to visit, please leave them in the comments!

Plain and Simple

TOP: TOPSHOP

This is currently my go-to relaxing in the sun, comfy outfit in this summer weather. These Missguided shorts just have to be my favourite summer item of clothing right now, they are ridiculously comfy and are perfect for dressing up/down in the sun. I've also been a massive fan of the 'ugly shoe trend' but also been pretty worried about what to wear these sandals with, however teamed with a casual, plain outfit creates such an effortless, minimalistic look. I hope everyones been enjoying then sun, sorry this post is a bit later than planned, it has taken me this long to pull myself together to post this after an amazing weekend at Parklife Festival!

lasercut

SHOES: ZARA

Exams are officially over and summer has started! i cannot wait to start blogging tons more so thought there was no best time to start then my post exams celebratory outfit. I've been loving the lasercut tees lately, and although this one was quite pricey, the material is definitely worth it. Also, black triangle lace bras look AMAZING underneath them. I have such an exciting summer coming up, with a few trips here and there that i will keep you all posted about.

Plus, these runner shorts are amazingly comfy and were such a steal for £8, however i would recommend a size up as they are prettttttyyy short.
