NEW IN: Shoes.

Fashion

Welcome back to my blog! For today’s post I thought I would do another ‘New In’ post. For this addition I will be sharing with you what pairs of shoes I have recently purchased. So if you would like to find out what they are, please keep on reading!

fullsizerender-54

  1. The first pair of shoes I picked up are a pair of faux suede mules from Primark. Mules are everywhere recently, so I couldn’t resisted trying the trend out for myself when I saw these (image below) in Primark. They also came in baby blue and baby pink, which were both very tempting, but I stuck with the staple black pair as I thought they would be more wearable. I love these mules, and what they do when styled with an outfit! fullsizerender-57
  2. The next pair are also from Primark; they are a pair of denim look high heels. They have a strap that goes around the ankle with a gold metal buckle, and are also slightly squared at the toe, which surprising, I really like the look of. The heel height is perfect; not too high but higher than the previous pair so they look a little more dressy, great when I want to look a little more put together. I thought these shoes would be great to try out and see if I can style them… I might post a OOTD wearing them soon! Definitely feeling the 1970’s vibe! fullsizerender-59
  3. The last pair of shoes I picked up from Primark are a pair of black faux suede sling backs, also with gold hardware. I have been seeing this style of shoe so much recently on social media and in magazines paired with the ‘jeans & dresses’ trend, so when I saw a pair in Primark, again, I had to get them! They are a perfect day-to-day heel that I can’t wait to wear. They also had these shows in a variety of different styles, so definitely check them out if you can! fullsizerender-58
  4. The next pair of shoes are the only trainers in my ‘New In’ post, however I have been eyeing up a fair few in the past couple of days. These trainers (below) are the True White Hummus Old Skool Vans… and they are beautiful! The colour of these is my favourite thing about them; I can’t wait to wear them in the Spring/Summer months (when it gets a little warmer here), and I think because of their nude/tan colour they will go with so many things! They also had these in a pink colour which was amazing as well, but I opted for the ‘hummus’ shade as I think they were more ‘me’. I am so happy I decided to order these! fullsizerender-53
  5. The final pair of shoes in this haul definitely have to be my favourite… they are a pair of red ghillie lace up heels from New Look. I adore them! I have been on the hunt for a pair of red high heels for such a long time now, as I think they look absolutely killer on a night out with the right outfit, such as a LBD. So when I saw these on the website in the sale I had to pick them up! Although the heel is a little high, I think they are gorgeous and are exactly what I have been looking for! Beauty is pain right? LOVE LOVE LOVE!fullsizerender-61

 

I hope you enjoyed this ‘New In’ shoes addition post! More to come soon!

NEW IN: Jewellery.

Fashion

Welcome back to my blog! For today’s post I thought I would do something a little different; instead of one big collective haul, I am going to upload several smaller ‘new in’ hauls of items I have bought recently, starting with jewellery. So, if you want to find out what pieces of jewellery I have picked up in the last few weeks then please keep on reading!

I have been loving layering my jewellery (e.g. necklaces) at the minute, so I was on the hunt for sets of simple/ dainty gold or silver metal necklaces… and Primark certainly didn’t disappoint! The first gold set I picked up contained four chokers, each has a small pendant/detail in the centre, such as a moon or coin. My favourite one has to be the laser cut out choker ( far right); I love the almost Moroccan feel/vibe it has. It is good set to mix and match with, especially for only £2/3 (I can’t remember the exact price but all the sets were £3 or under). Another piece I picked up from Primark was a 3 in 1 necklace that has one gold, one silver and one rose gold slinky chain that are joined together at the back. It was only £3 but feels quite heavy/ good quality! A bonus factor of this necklace is that I can match it to any other colour of metal, such as my new silver watch that I picked up from Primark too for £8! Love, love, love. Moreover, to layer on my wrist I bought a set of 8 chain bracelets (that were also different coloured metals) for £2, from Primark, if you didn’t already guess! I love all the details of each individual bracelet; they look good put together or worn separately… very versatile! Also, some of the bracelets match other sets of necklaces I have purchased in this ‘new in’ haul, such as the Moroccan inspired ones, so great to wear them together with the other items! fullsizerender-52

More recently ( today in fact) I purchased two more sets from Primark. The first is another set of chokers, but this time they are a mixture of materials, including black faux suede, gold metal, with details including diamantes and pearls. I can’t quite believe how affordable this was to say you get 6 necklaces (£3)! I am in love with each one and cannot wait to wear them! I would definitely say to check these out in your local Primark… they might be my favourite purchase of the haul! Today I also picked up a more simplistic set which incorporates gold metal and also small pearls. The necklaces are each slightly different in length, and are joined together at the back, but will still look good layered with other ones I have bought! My favourite has to be the longest from the set; I have been on the hunt for one like this for a while to wear with low cut tops, so I was very happy to find out in Primark! And for £2 I couldn’t not pick them up! fullsizerender-51

The next piece in my ‘new in’ haul is a simple gold necklace, again perfect for layering. It sits at the perfect length ( top of the chest) to pair with choker necklaces like the ones above. It has two gold circles in the centre that are intertwined with one another on a thin gold chain. I love the simplistic style of this particular piece! It was £2 from, you guessed it, Primark! I also picked up a set of chain mix metal bracelets from Primark in their jewellery sale. Although they are adjustable, they still are a little loose ( I guess I have small wrists!), but I do still like the look of a few of them layered together with, for example, a watch. I think it adds such detail to an outfit, and for £1.50 they were definitely worth picking up! They are a mix of silver, gold and rose gold metals and each one is slightly different ( as pictured). The last item in the haul is a pre-layered gold necklace; each of the three thin chains are different lengths. So great to ‘chuck on and go’ without having to think about what other pieces they would go with! My ‘go-to’ necklace when I am in a rush for sure! There is a mix of a diamante pendant, a leaf pendant and a laser cut out diamond pendant, all of which look great together! Again, this set from Primark was only £3, I think it would be a good one to start with if you’re trying out the layering trend!

fullsizerender-50

It’s safe to say I am now all set in relation to the jewellery front! I can’t recommend Primark enough for affordable sets to layer with; they have so many to choose from…definitely have a browse in your local store! I can’t wait to play around with my new collection to find different combinations to wear! I hope you took some jewellery themed inspo from this post, and try out layering for yourself! A shoutout to ThePersianBabe and SophiaandCinzia on YouTube for the inspiration for my new jewellery related obsession, check them out! Keep an eye out for my next ‘new in’ instalment coming soon.

Makeup Haul.

Makeup

Welcome back to my blog… and another haul post! This time I thought I would share with you what I recently bought from the my favourite makeup site, BeautyBay.com. So, if you want to know what I spent my money on this time, then please keep on reading!

For this online order, I only bought two pieces of makeup ( the rest being brushes etc.); Velour Liquid Lipsticks from the brand Jeffree Star Cosmetics, that were £16.00 each. The first shade I picked was ‘Unicorn Blood’ which is one of his best selling shades, soI am very happy I managed to get my hands on it! It is a classic dark red colour, with his usual pink packaging… definitely a good addition to my growing collection! The next shade I bought was ‘Sagittarius’ which is a cool toned purple from his 2016 Christmas collection. I love this colour for my skin and think it will compliment lots of different makeup looks, I also thought the red packaging was a great touch! I can’t wait to buy more! ( I have been eyeing up his new metallic liquid lipsticks). fullsizerender-23

The next items I ordered were two makeup brushes from the brand Morphe Brushes. The first is a highlighter brush that I have seen a lot of YouTubers use and love; the M501. It is slightly pointed, so perfect to achieve an intense glow! Plus it only cost £6.95, which I think is great value for a makeup brush. The next brush I purchased was the M527, it was slightly more expensive at £14.00, but I have to say it feels so soft and amazing quality! Again, I have seen lots of beauty gurus use this brush for contouring the face, so I can’t wait to give it a try for myself. fullsizerender-22

I also ordered myself a pair of false lashes from Ardell in the style ‘Natural Lashes Demi Wispies’. They look fluttery but still quite natural as the lashes get longer towards the end… I think they will finish off an everyday I look very well! Although I don’t normally wear false lashes, I have heard great things about this brand so for £4.95 I thought I would give them a go!fullsizerender-21

The last purchase I made from Beauty Bay was the Makeup Geek Travel Vault. It has the ‘Makeup Geek’ logo engraved on the metal lid, and is magnetic on the pan inside; I definitely loved the packaging! It will be perfect to keep my collection of their eyeshadow pans in and I look forward to filling it with more! The vault was £14.00, which is quite pricey for a empty palette I know, but it does feel expensive and it was a good investment piece for me!fullsizerender-24

I hope you liked my purchases, and no doubt their will be another makeup haul in the near future… I know, I’m addicted! But I am sure most of you share my passion for makeup and beauty, and might even be as obsessed as me! Let me know! I have lots of ideas for blog posts coming up so keep a look out!

January Sales Haul.

Fashion

 

Welcome back to my blog! Today’s post is going to be a Boxing day/January sales haul. In the past two weeks or so, I have taken full advantage of all the sales that have hit our high-streets, picking up lots of bargains and amazing pieces I thought I would share with you! So if you want to know what I bought, then please keep on reading.

I thought it would be best to split the haul up into sections according to the shops I bought the items from, so first… Topshop! I picked up a simple short-sleeved V-neck body suit for £10, it is a fine knit material. I love the feel and colour of this item (stone), and thought it is a good basic to have for layering! This piece is from the tall section, however I didn’t find it to be any longer than the other bodysuits I own! The nextfullsizerender-18 item I bought from Topshop was a slouchy long sleeved double layered T-shirt from the brand Escapology. I love the style of this item as it is quite oversized and relaxed, not to mention it is a really soft material! I got the top for £15 from £30; I am very happy with this purchase and can’t wait to style it! The final piece I bought was a large, and by large I mean the size of a blanket, grey knitted scarf. Once again the material is really soft, and is the perfect piece to keep me warm over the next few cold months! It was reduced from £28 to £10, a brill price for the quality!

The next shop I bought from in the sales was Zara. I don’t typically shop in Zara, but couldn’t resist having a little look, and I actually ended up buying a couple of items! Firstly, I bought a black strappy camisole velvet top, which has a muted floral pattern with hints of burgundy & grey, black lace around the neckline and up the side slits. I think this top will be perfect to layer over a black turtle neck, but also by itself as it has a gorgeous low V-neck back. I picked this item up for £12.99 down from £19.99. Finally I picked up a pair of shoes; they are black leather ballet flats, with studded straps that wrap around the ankle. I absolutely love this pair of shoes as I think they would add so much to a simple outfit, but they are also are comfy… definitely a big bonus! Again, this item was only £12.99. I might have to pop into Zara more often after these finds!fullsizerender-17

I also picked up a few sale items from River Island. Usually, I stay away from River Island when it comes to sales;  I find them rather hectic and disorganised. However, I did find another pair of shoes and a two tops from this years trip, which I am very pleased with! First, I picked up another velvet camisole top to layer. This one is blush pink in colour, and also has the same black lace detailing as the one from Zara. I bought this top for £10 down from £22, and once again I cannot wait to wear it! The next item is a black lace top with frill detailing. Although this piece is not normally something I would go for, I thought it was too pretty to pass up, especially since it was only £12. I think this delicate item could be styled in so many ways, and might even include it in an outfit post in the future! Finally, I bought another pair of black shoes ( you can never have to many, right?). These ones are slightly pointed and have two studded buckles across the front of the shoe. They are a sturdy faux leather material, so will certainly need breaking in a little. I love the look of these, taking definite inspo from Fearne Cotton’s style! They will go with lots of items I  already have in my wardrobe, and for £25 I am very happy I bought them… not that it took much persuasion. fullsizerender-16

On my shopping trip I also visited Primark; I bought quite a few items… but the majority of them were not in the sale ( I couldn’t resist!). I did however pick up a heather grey hoody dress that was reduced to £5! I bought it in a size 12 so it is slightly oversized rather than fitted, and it comes to the thigh/ just above the knee which is the perfect length. The material is really soft, and almost furry, so it will definitely keep me warm for the rest of winter. I can’t wait to style this versatile piece; I think it could be dressed down with trainers and a denim jacket, or dressed up with some knee high boots. It is simple, but I am certainly glad I picked it up!fullsizerender-14

The last place I shopped in the sales was Office. For a while now I have been after some white trainers to add to my collection, so I thought I might as well have a gander in the sale to see if  I could find any! I actually ended up ordering some online as they didn’t have them in stock in the store;  they are the exclusive Adidas Superstar 80’s in white, with a silver metal toe, and an off white sole. They are amazing! Not to everyone’s taste but I thought they were a great twist to the classic Superstar trainer, and will definitely add something to a simple outfit. I got them in a size 6 for £52.00 from £84.99. I think they were a great purchase that I am really looking forward to wearing soon! fullsizerender-15

That concludes my sale haul post. I am very happy with the items I managed to pick up; I think it was a rather successful shopping trip. I hope you enjoyed this post, and keep a look out for my next one!

What I got for Christmas 2016- Makeup Edition.

Makeup

 

Welcome back to my blog, I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I had the best time celebrating with the people who mean most to me, and definitely ate too much food, but that’s what Christmas is all about! I am certainly sad that it’s all over now, so to keep the festivities alive for a little longer, today’s post is going to be about the makeup I got for Christmas this year. As always, I am extremely grateful and feel very lucky for everything I received, and I can’t wait to try all of my new amazing products! So without further ado, if you want to know what makeup I got for Christmas 2016 then please keep on reading.IMG_5451.JPG

The majority of the makeup products I received were from my parents/ Santa ;), but I also received a few bits from my sisters too…everyone knows me very well it seems! Firstly, I was given two Kat Von D products that I have heard so much about from the blogging/ YouTube community; the Shade and Light face palette, and the Tattoo Liner. I tried them out on Christmas day and I am already in love! The next products I received are frimg_5452om the brand Jeffree Star Cosmetics. I picked out three of his famous liquid lipsticks in the shades ‘Mannequin’, ‘Leo’ and ‘Celebrity Skin’. I will definitely be doing a review of these products in the near future, and I have already started eyeing up more shades to try out!

I then received a few products from various brands, all of which I have wanted to try for a long time, so I aimg_5450m very grateful for them! These included; the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in the shade ‘Vanilla’; the Body Shop’s Lightening Shade Adjusting Drops; a Morphe 875 brush (which will be perfect for concealer under the brow),  and finally, a Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadow Pan in the shade ‘Highwire’. My last piece of makeup is what I was most excited about… the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder. This product has had a lot of hype throughout the whole of 2016 and I can’t wait to give it a whirl for myself. I also received a set of Mini Pro Concealer Correct Sponges by the brand Revolution. I think they are so cute(as you can see in the picture), and will definitely come in handy when doing my makeup!

Moving on to the makeup my sisters very kindly gave me for Christmas. Firstly, I received a gift set from my twin sister from Beauty Bay. The products came in a rose gold makeup bag, which I have already started keeping my new makeup in! The bag contained three pieces of makeup; two more of the Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadow Pans in the shades ‘Mesmerized’ and ‘Showtime’ and a LA Splash Lip Couture Waterproof Matte Liquid Lipstick in the shade ‘Aphrodite’ which is a gorgeous metallic gold/copper shade. The final bits of makeup I received this Christmas were from my older sister. She picked out two of the Revolution highlighters in the shades ‘Golden Lights’ and Peach Lights’, which both look amazing! I also received the Revolution Blush Palette (I had been eyeing up hers for a while now!) which has a mixture of 4 blush shades and 4 highlighters… I am going to be glowing that’s for sure!

I am over the moon with all the makeup I received this Christmas and I am definitely loving how my collection is looking at the minute! I hope you enjoyed this blog post and I shall be back with another before the New Year.

December Primark Haul.

Fashion

The decision for my first post here on my blog was an easy one for me… a haul! What better way for you to get a taste for my fashion sense and the sort of items I love to wear. Not only that, but I personally love hauls; I get so much inspiration from what other people are buying, and also think it’s a great way to discover what’s in the shops! So, if you want to get to know me and my style a little better, then keep on reading!

For me, Primark has always been hit or miss… this time it was definitely a hit. I managed to find so many amazing pieces, from chokers to culottes, that are perfect for this season. I can’t wait to style/wear them all! As a little guide for the haul, and for future reference (as I always find it handy) I am a UK size 10 in clothing, and a UK size 6 in shoes. So with that said, let’s get onto the good stuff, the haul.

Accessories:

The first accessory I picked up was a faux leather, small, black, structured side bag (see image), with chain detailing on the strap. The selling point for me was the hot pink and cobalt blue flower embroidery, which is a massive trend that I am obsessed with rightfullsizerender-1 now, not to mention that it was only £5.00! It’s the perfect bag for meals/evenings out where you only need the essentials; money, a phone and a lipstick! I also picked up a small purse to fit inside of my clutch bags for nights out. They had lots of different designs and patterns, but I settled on a metallic blue and black one, with a tassel detail on the zip which was £2.00. An essential item for the party season!

The next accessory I bought was a set of false nails which were only £1.50. I have so many sets of Primark nails, but the white marble effect on these ones in particular is amazing, I definitely couldn’t pass them up.  The final accessory I purchased was a choker; it is made up from two rows of silver diamantes. I am so in love with this item! I think it would add so much to a simple outfit, and certainly looks more glam/expensive than the £2.50 I bought for it!

Clothing:

I thought I would start off the clothing section of this haul post with the two hosiefullsizerender-2ry items I picked up. First, a pair of black fishnet ankle socks (£1.00) that I have been hunting for for a while now. They are simple, yet I think they can really add an edge to an outfit. I can’t wait to style them for an upcoming blog post! The next item is a bralette; I would never expect to find it in Primark! It’s a simple black mesh triangle bralette, with a gorgeous embroidered flower pattern sewn over the top ( told you I was obsessed with this trend). They again had lots to choose from, but for me the colours of the embroidery on this one sold me. Not to mention it was only £8. The perfect bra that combines the exposed underwear trend with the embroidery one… I’m in love!

Now moving onto clothing. Firstly, focusing on the top half items, I picked up a basic blush coloured roll neck jumper. It’s such a beautiful colour and soft fabric, perfect for the colder winter months. The next item is one again I couldn’t believe I found, and definitely not in the sale for £5! It’s this blush coloured (sensing a theme?) pyjama style, long sleeved, satin material shirt, which looks so much more expensive than what I paid for it.  It’s bang on trend for this season and is perfect for a sophisticated night time look. The final upper body item is a dark camel coloured knitted jumper, with a high neck. What attracted me to this item, besides the wintery colour, was the ribbed pattern on the front. It adds some detail to a basic jumper and is definitely a great staple to have this winter (£12.00).fullsizerender-3.

The final few items I bought are for the bottom half. Firstly, I bought a pair of black cigarette trousers, with silver accents on the pockets and draw string. For a while I have been looking for a smart alternative for jeans to wear for evenings out, and I think I have found them! They fit perfectly, ending just above the ankle and tapering in towards the bottom half of the leg,  for £13 I am very happy this purchase! The next item is a pair of wine coloured satin material culottes, that have splits up the front of both legs. I thought these trousers would make a great addition to my wardrobe as they can be dressed up for nights out, but also dressed down for more of a casual look, and for £10.00 you can’t go wrong! The last piece I bought definitely has to be my favourite. It is an olive green coloured satin pleated midi skirt (as you might be able to tell I have been loving satin this winter). I couldn’t believe that I found this item in Primark! It looks so luxurious and expensive, not to mention that it is extremely flattering, cutting off at just the right point on the legs. All in all the perfect piece for Christmas parties, a real statement item that only costs £13.00, an absolute bargain for this beautiful piece. fullsizerender-5

That completes my December Primark haul and my first blog post. I hope you enjoyed reading about my latest buys for this season, and have gotten to know a little more about my style. Look out for my next blog post!
