Revlon Skyline Pink


Hi Lovelies :)

A dedicated Post today! For my Beauty Box Swap sister on Facebook who are my unlimited source of goodies and advice. I love these ladies as they are always up for giving advice, not just on beauty but on life. As well as swapping your unloved items for once that you want that others don’t. Love this system!

Anyways…

Ive been after Revlon Skyline Pink for a while now, but I didn’t really fancy paying the £6-7 in the shops for a colour that I thought might look way too nude/frosted on me in person. I hate buying things I don’t ever use! So when someone of BBS was selling this along with a few other pieces a few months ago I snapped it up for a fraction of the price.



Revlon Skyline pink is a pale pink frosted colour which comes out almost like a nude/pink. It is very pale and so I find it shows up any cracks/dry lips so I can only really use this when my lips are in a good stage.  It needs building up as it is very frosted and pale and so can look overly thick and put on, however once you get it right it does last a good while, especially with a gloss on the top.

The texture is creamy but somewhat gritty if you know what I mean? Almost like you can feel the frost, not unpleasant but you can feel it. I like this but It isn’t really the right shade for me, as I it tends to make me look a bit dead, so a tad too frosted/nude  for me, a nice colour itself though!

Have you tried this? How  do you get away with nude lipsticks?

Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural







Last Mac post in a while guys...I bought all this recent mac stuff in on haul so nothing for a while... hopefully. 
So this has to be my favorite Mac product ever. Which admittedly isn’t that hard as I don’t really love much else they do. Im always on the hunt for a good powder that has:

Staying power

Matifying Qualities
Buildable
None cakey

Ive tried a good few powders and always come back to this one.
Its is the Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light.

Mac say:
A luxurious domed face powder with minerals, slowly baked to provide a dimensional yet natural-matte finish. Provides perfect low coverage. Use to set and fix foundation or as a touch-up throughout the day.

I honestly love this powder! Its super rich but not heavy, pretty buildable without being too cakey and it says low coverage but its plenty coverage for me, which says something.

Ive had this before though, in medium and I will say that if you go a shade too dark it becomes noticeable if you reset your make up throughout the day? As I do find these tend to get darker the more you put on. Also I find that if I put too much on, I can look a bit cakey but it tends to sort itself out within a hour or so as my skins oil absorbs this pretty quickly. Damm you oily skin.

I also love how luxurious this does feel on skin as it leaves mine silky and soft and doesn’t break me out.

2 downsides really with this.

 Firstly of course the price, as this is £21, but that’s my main quibble with all Mac. Secondly Mac has a tendancy to crack in the pan, as they are baked I think and therefore any drops can course it too shatter. Which is annoying when you’ve just paid all that money for something you can still use, but cant carry around.

This is always my favourite product from  Mac and I will repurchase :)

9/10

I think i've learnt my lesson now and wont be purchasing any mac in the near future as its products just dont work for me. You can see this here and here

What do you think? Do you like Mac?? Whats your favourite Powder?

Pure- Blush




Hellooo :)

I am a deffo blusher girl. I love blushers more than any other make up item as I feel they bring the most depth, warmth and glow to my face. Highlighters and bronzers are good too but I feel they take a lot more effort than simply swirling on a rosy glow when you’re in a rush. Mascara, blusher and lip balm is my go to rush make up.
When I buy  blushers I tend to buy a few different types. I normally buy 1 or 2 darker plum/berry colours for when im feeling a very rich cheek. Say if I was going out to a bar or something as I feel these make me look the most glowy and made up. I have a few of these, nothing major as I wear them infrequently.
I then buy cream blushers in a variety of colours which I pop on over foundation and top with clear powder giving a quick easy finish.

And then finally I buy loads of pink, rosy, shimmery blushes which I tend to dab my brush in blow, then swirl over my cheeks.

So when I saw this beauty a few months ago in a discount make up shop in Wales I snapped it up. I think it was around £5, I’ve had it ages (as you can tell by the packaging) but this shows it’s well loved! I do tend to only like to review products I’ve had for a bit on this as they look the neatest to photo but I like to include things I love. Like this blush from Pure.
I haven’t heard much of the brand Pure and I cant find much online about them, so I can’t be too sure if this Is a high end discounted product or perhaps one from abroad? Judging by the packaging and the product itself i dont think its a cheap brand as its a silky formula with a high pigmentation. I've also had this ages and the tiniest bit goes a long way so im no where near hitting pan. 

The blush itself is like a rose petal colour, not as dark as the photo sorry, and comes out on the skin like  a natural glow but better. Shimmer is there but I find if I place this high on the cheekbones it’s almost like a 2-in-1 highlight and blush. Like I said I’ve had this for ages and it’s always in my travel make up bag (I tend to house hop 2-3 times a week) so it’s my blush a few days a week on most occasions. 

This is because it’s a wearable quick colour that suits everything I wear from dark eyes to light. It applies silky and lasts as long as im at uni, so around 4-5 hours before starting to look slightly sparse, but this could be down to my oily skin.

  Either way I love it and the packaging is super stylish and looks chic. I also like the fact it comes with a mirror! As this is so useful and saves me from using reflections on the bus! haha!
Even if the rest of the packaging is filthy due from being in my bag!


Have you heard of Pure?

Eyeko Strawberry Fat Balm









Hi lovelies :)

Yet another review today thanks to BBS (Beauty Box Swaps) I recently traded (again)some of my unloved make up goodies for another ladies seconds! Now when I say seconds most of the products you find on there are swatched or tried once, as most of you know you only need to tell straight off a lot of the time if you’re going to like something or not.

So, the Eyeko Fatbalm in Strawberry.

Ive heard a lot about Eyeko on the blogging world and have seen it in a few times in my local Superdrug. However when it was cheap I found myself ignoring it as the packaging made it somewhat childish and not nearly as nice to have in you make up bag as something high end. I also, maybe wrongly, thought it was meant for children or those just getting into make up. Anyway its now been re-branded as a more high end drugstore product and prices range between £10-£20 pounds, which I think is still expensive for Eyeko Drugstore. So when this was up for swaps I jumped at the opportunity to try something for basically nothing.
Although saying that I have just checked their website and it seems they no longer sell all the range they used to so it may be a problem finding this balm…

I got this hoping I could use it as a cheek stain and a quick lip balm with colour when im on the go. Firstly though, the smell! I personally adore this smell as it’s almost jam like. Anyone who knows me, knows Im a lover of sweet things and this is the essence of them. I think smelling like strawberry jam could be off putting for some, but for me. I LOVE IT!

The texture is balm like, but almost greasy. When I used this this morning as a cheek stain I thought it was a bit greasy to smear over my face and was worried about shine. However I popped some on the back of my hand and applied it that way. This post is about 6 hours later and it’s still there. A bit fainter but still hanging on, not bad for a cheaper product, nothing a bit of powder wont sort out.

The colour is like a deep jam (obsessive about jam on this post), but when applied its almost half its original pigment and comes out like a pinky plum, great for winter rosy cheeks. I think this would work great on fair skin girls such as myself as a quick go to product for a rosy glow that is seemingly hard to mess up, however darker skin ladies might find it doesn’t show up enough on their skin to really see any point.
I also tried this on my lips this morning and although it wore of pretty quickly, like most balms do though. It left a nice colour behind and also left them feeling silky and moisturized… As well as faint smell of jam on my lips….

I actually really like this product. The packaging is abit naff and feels cheap but nothing major. Im going to be keeping this in my makeup bag for a quick pick me up on the go.


Have you tried Eyeko? What do you think of their revamp?

Lush Brazened Honey



Hi Guys.
Urgh, the bad part of going back to uni.  Freshers flu.   Im sat in bed right now with a lemsip in my pj’s. I shouldn’t get this! Im not a fresher!
When imill my skin goes from looking glowy and full to dull, flaky and acne prone so it’s important that I look after it. Especially with the cold weather we are having recently. So I recently picked up a new facemask.




I love facemasks, I use them about 3 times a week and have a huge list of favourites but am always on the lookout for more. This is when I saw this mask:
Lush Brazened Honey.
It says:
“Sage, Juniper and rosemary infusions, ground cardamon and clove bud oil for their antiseptic qualities. Eggs, honey and almond oil to soothe, soften and moisturise the skin. Fresh fennel, fresh ginger root, fresh parsley and fresh coriander to detox, and stimulate and their enzymes will help break down dead skin cells. Fresh lime juice cleans and degreases.  Ground almond shells act as a stimulating scrub to lift away dead grey skin. Finally kaolin and talc absorb grease and give a lovely texture to hold all those ingredients onto the skin. Together they make a mask that will wake up tired, neglected skin”
When I look for a mask I normally go for ones that help acne, are calming, nourishing, help make skin glowing and  most importantly smell good. So this one seemed to fit the bill. The woman who helped me out at Lush said that this mask doesn’t promise anything with acne but should help to sort out tired over made up skin which needs some TLC. So I thought I would give it ago.
Firstly though, I will say, if you hate honey stay away from this. It stinks like sticky honey. I personally love it as I adore anything honey scented, especially the lush smell, but I can see why it would turn a lot of people off.
Out of the pot I just apply a rich layer all over my skin and down my neck, I leave this on for 15-20 mins then wash off. Although its slightly hard to walk about doing things with this mask because of the granules in it it flakes when dry and goes everywhere. But nothing a simple sit down or lie down won’t fix. Great for just relaxing and pampering.



(attractive photo time)
Another things about this mask is the fact it has almonds in it. Which are rough and lumpy and work as an exfoliator in the shower when im washing this off. I simple get a bit of water on it and scrub gently giving a great scrub effect. Although if you have sensitive skin or skin that you need to be gentle on this could be way too harsh as its deffo a good treatment.
Out of the tub, using a smallish amount each time I would say I’ve had about 10 uses which is more than average but that’s me being slightly conservative with it. For nearly £6 a mask its on the pricey side as well, so saving it is good. It’s also a fresh mask and so needs to be put in the fridge and goes for within 3 weeks of purchase, but if you use it 2-3 times a week it will be gone before that.   
Results?
Personally I love this mask and I will be repurchasing. Its made my skin soft and clear and really helped to deep cleanse the dull build up I was getting from the weather and wearing loads of makeup. Almost like a detox for my skin. My skin has cleared up loads too, but that could be due to other factors but this hasn’t given me a breakout which I was weary of.
Overall I think you should try this product! If you like honey and are after a rich deep cleansing mask for soft clear skin then try this out!!
Have you tired this? What do you think? What are the other Mask face masks like?

Bad lighting and messy bed hair.

I also think they match my hair better!

Review- Mac studio finish concealer


Hi!

Another Mac post review.




This time on the concealer. Those of you who read my blog know I like high coverage look, and so reading about this online and trying it in the shop it seemed right up my alley as Mac say:

A lightweight, creamy, discreetly opaque concealer. Provides a smooth, long-wearing invisible coverage for all skin blemishes. Water-resistant, fragrance-free and non-blemishgenic. This emollient-based, lightweight concealer is so concentrated that a tiny amount can provide opaque coverage of the skin's imperfections and discolourations. It effectively covers dark circles, blemishes, moles, tattoos and birthmarks. Enriched with antioxidants (derivatives of Vitamin A and Vitamin E), it also contains Silica to help adsorb the skin's oils. Concealer has an SPF of 35 and is available in a wide range of colours. It can be applied with a medium to firm fibre brush (try the 242 Brush), a latex sponge, or the fingertips.

I am of course talking about the Studio Finish SPF 35 concealer. I was recommended in the shade NW15. Which is different to the foundation colour of NC15.

This concealer to me, is just average. Nothing special and not worth the £14.50 price tag.

The colour isn’t what I would normally choose either as it seem way to orange and warm toned for my pale skin. I do worry that when I use this I look so fake and it creases all over eye circles. Which is annoying as I asked the woman in the shop If I could use it for eye circles and blemishes and she said I could. I really don’t think I can, as it’s so thick and creamy that its almost like stage make up on my skin, defiantly not lightweight.

Again thought, it does last a long time, if creased and for blemishes its fine. Just not as good as I would expect.

In case you cant tell im really not impressed by this and I wont be re purchasing.

Giving this 5/10

What do you think? Am i using this wrong, are there any tips? Or do you love Mac Products?

Organix Moroccan Argan Oil


Hi Guys,
So firstly I apologise for the state of the bottle above. Haha I like to well use something before I talk about it as it makes sure I actually show my true thoughts, unless it’s something I instantly hate which doesn’t happen that often!!
So this is such a well talked product on the blogsphere I had to try it. Admittedly I haven’t tried the more renowned Moroccan Oil Treatment as I honestly cannot afford the expense so I can’t compare it to that however I can say that I honestly really like this product!!

It’s around £6 in boots and from what I gather it is pretty much the same thing as the more expensive alternative.  I use it after the shower and pour a tiny amount into my hands, spread it round then apply to the ends and midshafts of my hair. I hate the pouring system of this bottle though as it just goes everywhere and you end up using way too much which then makes your hair horrid and greasy :/
Ive had this since going dark in December as I really wanted to help fix my hair and im still on the same bottle, so it lasts for ever! I think this has really helped my hair as it feels so soft and nourished after using this so I will be repurchasing it as soon as it runs out!

Have you tried this? How does it compare to Moroccan Oil?


Herbal Conk Masks Pore Cleansing Strips


Hi guys!!




Another skin care review for you today! For a while I’ve been suffering from really bad blackheads around my nose and skin area. Not matter what I do, scrubbing, nose strips, exfoliating they will not disappear! So when someone I know recommended these "Herbal Conk masks" I was all for it. Admittedly I didn’t think they would work as they only cost £0.99p for 6 sachets so I was dubious.


It says:
The nose-shaped membrane is thick, and a bag (6G) can be used 2 or 3 times, very cost-effective oh!Efficient removal blackhair, so that the pores become small and not significant.This product is pure traditional Chinese medicine formula; combined with modern beauty research: Poria, Atractylodes, Pak Mong, Motherwort, Angelica, Huang, safflower and other dozens of precious Chinese medicine.No squeezing, no scar, nose-specific.Usage:
After cleaning, take appropriate this product evenly around the nose, wait 15-20 minutes to dry.
Gently peeled off from the bottom up, you can see the black, wine meters, sewage grease, dead skin being sucked out of the whole.
The nose, greasy, dirty things, were all clear!
(Recommended 1-2 times per week).

It’s basically a herb infusion that comes out like a black liquid. Much the texture of face wash. You apply it as you would a normal mask to the areas wanted, in this case nose. You then leave it until dry or when it turns to an almost rubber like texture which you then peel off. Not painful and seemingly easy.

Firstly I will say that you don’t need the whole package for one nose strip application. You probably get around 2-3 uses out of one sachet so money wise its good. But do they work??

(no make up tired face ftw)

I applied mine to a clean, exfoliated face and left until I felt it tightening. The was around 30 mins so much longer than your conventional nose strip but it took a while for the product to dry. I would say it could be me putting it on to thick but since have used these numerous times and have found 30 mins is average drying time. So not exactly a quick fix.

The smell like herbal formulas, nothing too overpowering and it soon disappears as they dry. Try not to get it on anything though as it’s a pain to get off! Even your fingers take effort!

However. Guess what? THEY DO WORK!

At least they got rid of such a lot of my blackheads and whiteheads and just left the area looking cleaner and softer. Make up applied easier and seemed to last longer as there was no greasy pores blocked or anything. I absolutely love this product and have used it the recommended 2-3 times a week.
I also used this as an all over peeling face mask on one night and found that although it left my skin looking clean and fresh it was slightly too tight around my chin/mouth area which was slightly uncomfortable  If you were going to try that I wouldn’t recommended applying close around sensitive areas such as eyes/lips e.g.
All in all I would say these are great for the price and are worth the shipping wait from China as well as the 30 min wait each time. Much cheaper than other nose strips and easy to use! I wish I would of taken a photo of a before and after but I didn’t think about it and have now been using it for a week or so, so its a lot different.
 I would also show you the picture of what the stuff looked like that came out my nose to show you they work.. But its gross…lol

You can purchase them for 99p from here

Will you be purchasing them? What are your favorite nose strips?

Paul and Joe 10th Anniversary Lipstick


Hello Lovelies!!






 The most expensive one I’ve ever bought.. And I’ll admit it, it was the packaging that did it :(

This is the Paul and Joe Limited Edition 10 year Anniversary Lipstick Refil (Dragon Flies) in 005 Venus, with 

the Paul and Joe lipstick case in Cats.

How cute is this!

I love cats. Im so going to be a crazy cat lady and it the only reason I bought this. Not going to lie…
Ive been after something from their cat collection for a while, but after thinking about it and looking at the cat shape blushes sticks (which are shaped like cats!!) It dawned on me that the more I use that product the more the cat shape is going to disappear. So I decided to go for something which celebrated my love of cats in a way that would last longer.


I’ve never bought anything from Paul and Joe before, and so I didn’t know what to expect from their lipstick. The other products look really nice and the packaging of the whole brand is cute and glamorous.Im really pleasantly surprised! The lipstick itself is a gorgeous colour a almost baby pink in a rosy colour It has some shimmer but nothing over the top. It also slicks on really well and is a very creamy smooth consistency. I used this this morning and have reapplied after lunch, when the colour was still there. Not great but still there meaning it probably has about a 4 hour wear? But lipsticks don’t last very long on me for some reason so it could be more…

The packaging is absolutely lovely. You buy the lipstick refill separate then place in a case you purchase.  Which i dont really understand but i guess its so you can choose your own case? The refill is a great gold colour with pink dragonflies all over it, it feels expensive and luxurious which is so nice! The lipstick case has the cat design all over it which I love, although I do feel it looks/feel a tad cheap? It’s like a plastic paper material which I think could get wrecked easily which isn’t really what I expected but it’s still nice.

The refill retails at £12 and the case is £5 and can be purchased here.

I love this and I think the lipstick is deffo worth the money as it’s so cute and a great statement item to have. Also I love cats so anything with them on is a winner..

Talking of cats want to see mine? lol



Have you tried Paul and Joe? What else should I try from them?

Studded Denim Jacket


Hi lovelies!

Primark Studded Jacket Trend Alert!





I've never been one for denim jackets. I think because Im curvy and have a long torso they tend cut off in a unflattering place and make me look bigger. However I am in love with studs as you know. So when I saw this amazing jacket in Primark I bought it on a whim not thinking it would work and that I would sadly have to return it. However when I put it on. I LOVE IT!

The whole jacket has rose gold accents, such as the studs and specks on the shoulders. The studs are quite sharp though so that was a bit of a surprise.  As well as the cute collar tips which increase the sparkle and details buts in a clean way. The whole jacket seems to be rather good quality for Primark recently as it has defiantly gone down in quality and price. The buttons are pearl poppers which is better than the cheap buttons that Primark normally uses on its clothing.


I really like this jacket and for only £13 you cant really go wrong, especially with the fact I bought this in a larger size to make it longer and look more of an over sized fit to wear loose with a shirt, such as how im doing in the picture. I like this look, it’s a bit different and edgier to what I usually wear.

(Do like my new phone case?? Blog post coming soon on how to make one!>.Excuse the slippers!)


What do you think? How do you wear denim jackets?

My Hair Story.

So abit of a different post today. My hair story.

My hair has literally been every colour under the sun, unfortunately I can only find photos from around 2005 onwards which is the blonde period of my life! This is the only photo I can find, and am willing to put on. Im around 7-8 but the colour of my hair can be seen. Between this and bleaching I used wash in wash out colours of deep red, something I would never do now, but when I was little it was a bit of fun, and my then healthy hair could take it.
(Oldest photo i could find of natural hair, strawberry blonde/brown)


Before that my hair was naturally strawberry blonde, with bits of light blonde, ginger and mousy brown. Looking back I quite liked my hair but at the time it was not what I wanted. I don’t regret dying it the colour, but I do regret how I treated it.  I used so much bleach as I was only about 13-14 and so couldn’t afford the hairdressers and thought I could do it all myself. Which I did, but trashed it in the process. It was dry, damaged and would literally break off in my hand. Of course not all this straight away, it took a few years before the damage became massively apparent, the main thing being the length.  It went from being long, about below boob length to breaking and snapping its way up to around just under my shoulders. Of course I had to keep getting it cut because of the colour when horror happened!


(2010 showing the worst of my dry hair. I do like the colour though, but you can see the condition) 

The hairdresser cut about 4-5 inches off in one go. I barely remember this as I was around 16 and it literally traumatised me. I don’t know what happened, if it was me not explaining right, or her just not listening but lets just say it ended with me in tears, not paying and a trip to the hair extensions shop.
Since I was around 16 then, I’ve worn extensions. When I was blonde it was easy to get them. Just the lightest bleach blonde colour matched my hair. I think I will do another post about hair extensions later as they are such a big topic.

Anyways, this is basically what my hair stayed like until last December, when I decided enough was enough. I couldn’t handle the constant frizz and damage and just wanted my hair to grow. As because of the damage it had just been snapping off and was doing my head in. So I took the plunge, bought a brown hair dye and popped it on.  However my hair had other ideas and started going red brown because of the red pigments in my hair.  It took about another month until it started to settle and turned out a reddish brown which I quite liked.

Finding extensions this colour was a pain though and involved dying them myself which was time consuming but it was the least of my worries. Although I went dark to help my hair, which is did magically. Over the 6 months I was brown my hair grew about 1.5inches and the condition returned to nearly normal. I was so happy with it!
(2011 Red Brown)


However my blonde need started to come back. I JUST CANNOT HELP MYSELF! About 6 months after being dark I decided to go back to blonde. But it wasn’t going to be easy and I didn’t want to trash it anymore. So I went to the hairdresser and got her to start lightening it again which basically returned it back to my natural colour with a few blonde highlights. I liked this colour too, but again after a few months my hair was wrecked. After around 3 visits to the hairdresser, using the least harmful things possible and a deep cut to regain new ends, it was still going back to being dry and looking damaged.  Apart from this I basically couldn’t find extensions to match this colour, which I could not live without, meaning the end of this strawberry blonde stage.

(2012 strawberry blonde)


I think, being older I decided that I didn’t want to be this anymore. I wanted healthy hair that did what I wanted. I also needed extensions in my life. So I popped on another brown dye. This time a ashy colour to help the red tones, ending in a deep ash brown with now red. A colour that I really like and that I think suits me. I love this color, and I do think I will stay with this for at least the next year or so to help my hair get back to normal. It still only just above boob length but hopefully staying this colour for a while will help it heal and grow. Of course its always going to be damaged but at least only dying it darker every few months rather than peroxiding it will be better for it. I also love how this feels and styles, so this is a winner for me!

What do you think of my hair story? Which do you like best? Let me know yours!!! I want to see!

My Mac Pallet revamped



Hi Guys:

Oh Mac….
If you read my blog your’ll know my feelings towards most of Mac’s products. I don’t think they are great- lets just put it that way. So when I bought a few eye shadows and a Mac pro pallet little did I know most of it would sit empty. Until, well.. Until I got bored.
Im a neutrals kind of girl, with a bit of sparkle to liven things up. I normally switch between a few pallets for my go to colors.

Generally these are:
My Mac pallet (with 6 colours, post here 
My Urban Decay NYC book of shadows Vol 3

My Urban Decay Sustainable shadow box

My Too Faced Natural Pallet (post here
(I also use the Naked 1 pallet, but kept that separate as its got enough to take compact on its own. )

But when you want to mix all these together you have a problem. So… I did this.



I know. I think its gorgeous, but in reality its probably a bit of a mess. It does its job however. Its perfect to take wherever, I have most of my favourite pallets with me and I can choose which ever colours I like.
All I did was take the separator out of the mac pro pan, as I was never going to buy more mac shadows, as I much prefer urban decay, then depot everything from all my other packaging. Luckily the all survived with just a few minor scraps and dents, but all in all quite good.  

In order of pallets L-R (i tried to keep all the neutrals together) :

1st 5-
Uzi, Maui Wowie, Suspect, Smog, Midnight Cowboy, 
2nd 5-
Snatch, Bordello, Last Call, Psychedelic sister, Rockstar, 
3rd 5-
Loaded, Kush, Money, Haight, Raduim, 
4th 1st-
Perversion.  
(all from NYC)

4th row 2nd- 7th)
Midnight Cowboy, Uzi, Grifter, Flash, YDK, Half Baked
5th Row 3
Oil Slick, Flipside, Kiddie Pool
 (All from sustainable pallet)



Top 2 rows- 
Tempting, Girlie Woodwinked
Jest, All that Glitters,  Retrospeck.
(all mac)

Bottom Sidewards 2-
Heaven and Nude Beach (used all silk teddy)
6 across L-R
Velvet revolver,Sexpresso, Coca Puff, Erotica
 (all from two face natural pallet)

One on its own- twice backed (Urban Decay sustainable shadow box) 



What do you think? Would you consider doing this??

Autumn OOTD


Hi loves

I love autumn and winter! I hate the rain admittedly but the cold and bitter weather allows me to wear some of my favourite things ever. Layers and faux fur.

Every year I buy some item with faux fur as they make me feel all wintery and luxurious whilst being practical and keeping me warm. This faux fur trimmed cardigan is one my my best purchases last year as its still as fluffy and soft as when I bought it. Great for throwing over a simple dress to keep warm.
I also love my new boots. I need winter boots as I basically live in them for 6 months so these studded ones in a nude color where perfect for my style and such a bargain!






Cardigan- New look (last year)
Dress- Ark
Belt- New Look
Cami (under dress)- Primark
Tights- New Look
Socks- Primark
Boots- Primark


Do you like faux fur? How do you plan on dressing this winter??
