OOTD - Festa

It may be the middle of summer but Black and Grey are two colours I wear ALL year round. I probably ended up being a little overdressed as we only went to Mcdonalds but I would take feeling confident overdressed rather than insecure underdressed any day!

OOTD - Consecutive Orange

I only just realised but this is the third consecutive post that I am wearing Orange! I don't think I even owned anything Orange at the start of the year! I'm not sure if I even like this outfit, I wish the top was a tighter fit. I have a really bad habit of buying things, even if they are not in my size just because I like them or they where in the sale. In this case, I bought it for both of those reasons! What do you think?

Also, I have got into a routine of going to the gym every other day. I no you shouldn't really care about what you look like when you go to the gym, but look how cute this outfit was that I put together! I got the shorts in the Zara sale!

OOTD - Family Night

My family and I have recently made it a tradition that every weekend we will have a 'family night', and each week we choose a different restaurant to eat at. We opted for my favourite, 'Bad Bull'. However, this time the food literally lived up to the first word of the name. Everything was so different, I think they may of swapped chef or manager, i don't know, but whatever has changed, it's a sad day for food. Never the less, it was a lovely evening and look at how beautiful that sunset was.

As soon as I heard there was a sale at Zara I hopped straight on the bus and went for a day of shopping in Sliema. It was a success as I finally purchased some White jeans! yay! Although, I did experience that painful moment when you see something that you only just bought now in the sale. Not only did I see a skirt I bought last month, but the skirt I was actually wearing in the sale!

Our sixth form prom is pretty casual. So much so that we made it into a 'summer ball'. That's why I went for a classic Black dress, Red heels. I don't think anybody wore one of those big, fancy, Cinderella dresses.

Personally I loved what I was wearing and I had a wonderful evening. My heels did not fail me. My feet didn't even hurt! - and I was dancing non stop! I am so glad I went. Weeks even months before I getting anxiety and playing over every situation in my head. But, as usual, everything turned out okay! I don't think I had any complaints about the night. It was lovely to spend time with my friends for one last time before I move to Malta!  For anyone else who is debating whether to go, I promise, you will have a fabulous time!

OOTD - £5 DRESS!!!!!????!!!!

Firstly, can I apologise for the lack of posting recently but I have been bogged down with revision. However, all exams are now finished! woooo. I can't believe I have finished education! I am excited but nervous for the future. Also, exciting news.... in 19 days I am officially moving to Malta! Ever since   I was little I always wanted to move abroad, and I am finally going to fulfil my dream!

Anyway, for the outfit. I can confirm you did read the title correctly. This dress really was only £5 from Primark! I can't believe it! It was on sale reduced from £12. I think this has to be my favourite thing I have ever bought from Primark. I am even tempted to go back and buy another just as a spare! I don't understand why people turn their nose up to Primark. My view is, if I like something, I am going to buy it. I don't care where it is from!

Trip to the garden centre for photography work.

Eyebrow Threading - My First Time Experience!

I have neglected my eyebrows for pretty much my entire life but today that all changed! After weeks of apprehension I finally plucked up the courage to get it done. (Excuse the pun.) I think getting them threaded is possibly the best descision I have made all year!!  

I now feel so silly for worrying about getting it done! I'm sure I am not the only one who had visions of the lady taking my entire eyebrow off... 

My Experience:

I got my eyebrows threaded at a brow bar in Debenhams for £7. 
The lady was really friendly and invited me to lye back in a chair (a bit like a dentist.) She then told my that I needed to pull back the skin while she threaded. Personally, I didn't think it hurt at all. :) The feeling is really hard to describe but I would compare it to being scratched. It doesn't hurt as much as waxing. After 5 minutes I was all done! I was left with a little redness but that faded after an hour.

I specifically told her that I didn't want much doing just neatening up. And that is exactly what she did! I kind of like having thick eyebrows opposed to a twig above my eye, so she just took away stray hairs and defined the shape. These pictures don't show much of a difference but there definitely is! - Especially the hairs underneath my eyebrow! Next time I will probably have a little more done, but for a first time I just wanted a shape and to see what it is like, then I can develop from there! I am so happy with the outcome and they look so much better! I just wish I had them done years ago!

TOP TIP: WEAR WATERPROOF MASCARA!!! The combination of threading around my eyelid and me holding back my skin in that area, made my eyes water! As I was holding down my eyelid I completely smudged my mascara and once I was done I had to make a dash for Debenham toilets, which are inconveniently situated on the very top floor!

BEFORE: (nay)

AFTER: (yay)

I am so happy with my experience. I am definitely going to be returning!

Haul! - Primark | TK Maxx | Topshop | Forever 21 | Zara

After the fabulous Miley concert on Friday night, I had the whole Saturday in Birmingham to do some (a lot) of shopping! I think this has been the most successful shopping trip I have had in a while! I love every piece and I am now officially prepared for Summer! Sorry these pictures are pretty ugly in quality but the hotel room provided me with limited resources!

For the longest time now I have been wanting a transparent rain jacket and I finally found one!!! It's probably not everyone's cup of tea but whatever! When it rains I can whack this out of my bag and BAM... I no longer have to cover up with an ugly dark coat that ruins my outfit! I think it is awesome that you can still see the outfit through the jacket. What do you think?? In the very near future I am going to style this in a separate post. :-)

My mum thinks these are weird but I love them! They will look so cute at the beach. The picture doesn't do then justice. They are a lace/net material which flare out at the bottom and inside they have silk shorts. 

Which is your favourite item?

April Favourites!

So April was a fabulous month for me as I got to spend most of it in Malta! However that does mean that I don't have many Beauty favourites :( As I have now regained my tan, I don't tend to wear that much makeup but there are still a couple of things that I have been loving.

I will start with the most boring thing... After Sun! I am sure everyone has heard of this or seen different versions but this is a personal favourite. As soon the sun becomes part of my daily life, so does this Nivea lotion. It smells fabulous and every time I open the cap it begins back so many childhood memories! Both my mum and I have used this for years and years. It leaves the skin feeling so hydrated and it soaks in really fast. Also if you have a sun burn, I would highly recommend this as it is super duper soothing. 

My next favourite is the Tangle Teezer. There isn't much to say about this apart from it does it's job! It is perfect to use when your hair is wet and literally just glides through your hair. It feels so much more gentle than a normal hairbrush. Once my hair is fully dry, I have been applying Kerastase hair serum. As I rub it in I can literately feel the texture of my hair improving. It makes it silky smooth! What I also love about this is that it doesn't make my hair looks greasy!

This month I decided to dig out my Liz Earle Foundation. However, I haven't actually used it for its purpose, as I have discovered it is an amazing under eye concealer!! The coverage is amazing! My everyday makeup routine has been just this as a concealer and then I just add a little bit more under eye coverage with my Bare Minerals concealer. It is working perfectly for me. I don't think I would have the balls to go out in public with just concealer, but now my tan acts like a foundation instead!

The only other item I use in my everyday routine is the Maybelline Big Eyes Mascara. I FREAKING LOVE THIS. I don't actually think I would have gone out and purchased this as I was content with my Benefit mascara, but thanks to Glossy Box, I got to try this out! It seems to grab each lash and make them super long without making your eyes look like a tarantula and it leaves out all that horrible clumpyness. I think Maybelline are experts in mascaras. 

My last beauty favourite it quite literally my holy grail. It is the Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream  I now own this in tin, pot, stick and tube form! I love it so so much and can I just say a big thank you to my mum for introducing this to me. We have now been dedicated users for around 2 years! When I first tried this I was unsure of the smell but now I love it. I use this on my lips. In the winter when I have any dry patches around my face, I apply a dot and this helps to heal it over night. Also, I don't know if anyone else has experienced this but I swear, it has made my lips bigger. Now that is a big claim! I have basicallly been religiously applying it every night and and this month I have noticed my lips look bigger!????? I don't know if this is even possible!? But EVEN MY MUM HAS COMMENTED that they look fuller! They are in really good condition and I can't remember the last time they were dry!

My last favourite is slightly random, but it is my Holga 135 Camera. Every time someone sees this they ask if it is real, and yes it is a real film camera! I purchased this like 3 years ago in Vegas and it's only recently I have really started using it! I just think it's a really fun thing to keep in my bag and anytime I see something I like weather it be a pretty beach or cute looking shop I take a picture. However, I haven't actually developed any of my pictures from it yet, but I am super excited to get it done this Friday! If you would like me to do a review of this just comment down below :-)

What have been your favourite of this month?

OOTD - Shopping adventures.

I know this is an outfit of the day, but can we just take a moment to looks at the beautiful view behind me!!! This is a view from Sliema and across the water is Valletta. (Malta) I think this has to be one of my favourite views I have ever seen. I love this place. I am really am truly grateful to be able to visit whenever I want. Me and my mum took a bus to Sliema to do a bit of shopping and then the little ferry boat across to Valletta. I only purchased a pair of shoes but they are perfect. I will have a haul soon! :-)

For my outfit I wanted to wear something a little more special than jeans, as I knew we were going to have lunch somewhere nice. (And oh my we did. I had the tastiest wrap I think I have ever had.) I just chose the gorgeous lace dress that I purchased here in Malta and paired it with my Steve Madden shoes. 


Or with a Jacket...
