Embrace your Summer Glow with 'Whites' on a Budget

Your probably thinking why am I posting this when the weather here in the UK is barely warm and even when it is warm, it barely lasts. But Summer is almost here and yes we can still dream of that weather right now. And it's better to shop for the summer outfits before it's all gone. Summer is the time where wearing white really helps to enhance your natural tan and makes you look like a Greek goddess. It is an easy colour to pull off during the summer because looking pale in the Summer months is the last thing any girl wants, so why not embrace your tan by wearing White. So I've picked a few cute, inexpensive items that I've been loving. I've added the shopping links to all items below.

Outfit: Playful Check Print

A quick post today featuring these adorable co-ords that I recieved a few days ago from a new fashion boutique. They have a lot of adorale peices so do check out their site for more cute items. I love how co-ords are still trending as I am a huge fan of co-ords. But this one is a little different to the usual co-ords I go for. Something more casual and cute which can easily be dressed up or down. And to go with the casual look, I paired it with these super comfy slip-ons.

Letter to my Teenage Self

Now that I am in my early 20's, looking back at my teenage years have made me realise things that I regret. Not only fashion and beauty related but others aswell like the things I used to do at school or even outside school. This may be helpful or or little lesson if you are at that age now. So here is a whole list of things that I would tell teenage self.

1) Never, ever use black eyeliner to fill in your brows. Yes it will grab peoples attention, but not in a good way.

2) Remember to brush your hair before heading out anywhere. No, a messy, knotty, tangled hair is not really a good look or in my teen world, it's not the so on trend 'volumised Cheryl Cole hair'.

3) Unblended, bright green eyeshadow to match with your green outfit is the worst makeup mistake you could ever make. Just don't do it. Stick with the neutrals and invest in a proper blend brush instead of using your fingers.

4) Remember to condition your hair after shampooing. You wouldn't want your hair to look like a dried up witches broom stick.

5) Cutting your own hair is a big no no! Stay away from the scissors! When you look back at your teen photo's you will cringe when you see the horrible haircut create by yourself. And even worse, it's part of my family photo which has been up on my wall for years. Just as a little reminder to my little cousins when they come around.

6) Stop wasting up your savings on rainbow candy sticks and £1 fries and use it for what I really need, like a good concealer to cover them teen spots and some good clothes.

7) Buy clothes that actually fit you and don't buy something that is 3 times larger than your size just because you couldn't find it in your size, and then end up having to add a handful of pins to it.

Review: Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick

As much as I love buying and wearing lipstick I've noticed there has been a lot of drugstore brands and high end brands bringing out these lipglosses that give a matte finish. I'm not a huge fan of lipglosses because a) it's very messy and b) my hair always gets caught in it in the wind. But I was eager to try these out as they are inexpensive and also fell in love with the colours.

I decided to pick out two colours: '04 Peach Club' - A coral colour perfect for spring. Great for adding a pop of colour to your makeup look. My new favourite! '10 Don't Pink of it!' - A pinkish nude.

My Thoughts
  • Very pigmented, but the shade 'Don't Pink of it' does give a sheer coverage, however these colours are buildable.
  • Super creamy texture and gives a matte finish without drying out the lips
  • As I am not used to applying lipstick in the form of a lipgloss packaging, for me it is quite difficult to apply. But because I have little experience with applying lipgloss, that's just a problem with semi lipgloss virgins like me.
