    Make Up Haul


    Hello Sweeties!
    Sorry I haven't blogged a lot lately I have been really focused on my dissertation proposal and starting my new job soon/ university for my 3rd year is really stressful but I would love to enjoy my last year so hoping to do well. I have been on a spending ban really lately too and thought I would treat myself to some goodies. I bought some clothes too but hoping to do some outfit posts this week :) 

     I will start with the RSPCA badge, I give money to the RSPCA every month and saw this in Pets At Home and thought why not its a good cause. I love the little cute badger on it and I was spoiling my dog Isabella with some new teddies and chews so did my bit for charity. I have a huge soft spot for animals and cry so easily at the adverts etc.
    My make up purchases this week have been these beauties and I am very pleased with my Mua purchases apart from the bronzer not 100% on it yet, probably my fault because it is to light for me and doesn't show up on my skin, it is shade 1. Might need to stick to my usual brand Rimmel for bronzer which is a huge shame as I love the Mua products, this one is the first thing from them I am not impressed by but I cannot complain because of the wonderful prices. :)
    The Vaseline I bought as I love having new lip balms even though I have hundreds of them, it has such a lovely Pink Bubbly, gorgeous rosé hue. Enriched with champagne grape extract, it honestly makes your lips feel super soft and feels amazing when you apply lipstick to it. 
    I am a huge fan of Rimmel products and I always buy the wake me up foundation, it covers all my bad skin days and makes my face look radiant. apply some moisturizer to your face  in the morning and apply the foundation it glides on well and looks super radiant and covered. creates the perfect base for your make up bits. i bought the wake me up concealer and I am very impressed, it hides my tired eyes and brightens up my face. This product I need from now on in my make up bag, it is such a good price and goes well onto my face to create the perfect finish. This product is £4.49 from Boots.

    I wanted to try a new mascara as I like to change my mascara regularly, this one does do what it says on the packaging such as no clumps and fans out your eyelashes that lasts morning to night, it really does do this so it is a good product to invest in specially for £4.99 at Superdrug  but I do love my eyes to stand out which it does do with this mascara it is neat and fans out your lashes which is always good, I do tend to add the Cat eyes one on top to add super volume and it does work. The cat one is a tad messy compared to the show off product but I still love them both.

    My final product on this image is my Mua liquid eyeliner, I am impressed by this product as it is easy to apply and looks super tidy on my eyes. I tend to have to re do my eye make up sometimes when I do my liquid eyeliner wrong which is a pain when your in a rush but this product is so easy to apply it glides on to your eyes easy and looks super good. The product is a must for your make up bag specially how cheap it is but it is good quality. I am always raving about these Mua products but seriously good products to have. Mua felt Liner £2


    My second make up purchases are from the wonderful Mua store, they have a offer on at the moment when you spend £8 you get a free 24 piece palette which is super as these palettes are so good I own about 4 of the others, tad obsessed with them. Such good quality eye shadows for just 4 pounds.
    The purple eye shadow I bought for my mom she was asking me to get her it since she saw my Mua palettes and was amazed by the prices and quality. she will love this as she is a huge fan of lilac/purple.
    I am wearing the Love hearts lilac nail varnish at the moment and I love it because it is such a perfect colour and dries super fast which is always good for me as when I paint my nails I can be so impatient. The colour and quality of it for just £2 is super! I can see myself wearing this colour quite a lot this winter. I am happy as my new job allows you to wear nail varnish so this is my top favorite at the moment I do want to buy some more Models Own as they are super duper too!

    What can I say another lip balm oops!, this one is cute though I bought it because of the super cute design and I am a sucker for anything girly, sparkly or pretty so this fits into my list.
    The colour is cute and it doesn't really have a strong smell but it keeps lips soft and looks cute. perfect fit to keep in my hand bag at all times while out and about.

    Hope you enjoyed this post, feel free to comment below :)

    Guest Post - Crazy Rumors Lip Balm Review


    Crazy Rumors Lip Balm Review:

    Hi Everyone! My name's Anna and I'm a 13 year old blogger who writes thelifeofafashionnerd.blogspot.co.uk , I love blogging because it's a great chance to interact with fellow bloggers and learn new tricks for everything. And plus everyone is so helpful and just plain lovely, including Abi from this blog, thankyou for letting me post on your blog!

    So I recently won a giveaway on a lovely lady named Kel's blog. I got a lip balm with it and loved it so much I HAD to do a review on it!

    The brand that the balm is from is called 'Crazy Rumours' and it's and American based brand that specifically makes lipbalms that are vegan friendly, although they are from America and are quite hard to get here, I've found a website that stocks so many of the flavors that suit everyone's taste buds http://www.supersmoocher.com/ . Super Smoocher is a website that has nothing but organic beauty products, they also donate 1% of their deliveries to Animal Aid, which I actually love about that site.
    The flavor I got was Soda Pop 'Root Beer'. Now the problem is I've never tasted root beer so I don't know if it's very accurate or not but I loved it and thought it had a very rich smell to it. The other good thing about it is that it's long lasting and also you know that horrible taste you taste when you lick your lip with product on? Well you don't get it with this, because it tastes like it smells.
    What I put on top:

    I always put a revlon lip butter on top to add just a teeny bit of shimmer to spice up a boring shine. This is in the shade 005 I think or 'Sugar Frosting'. 
    Thanks for reading x

    In Love With Polka Dots!


    Yayoi Kusamas polka dot collection for Louis Vuitton, makes me want to get my new wardrobe sorted with plenty of polka dots this Autumn. I love the photography for this shoot, the background you would think would not let the products stand out as it is the same colour but I just love it it really works. I love the dots on her cheeks as well gives it a arty feel to it and creates the image as a whole. Full on inspired by the one and only Minnie Mouse! <3

    Here are some outfits I would love to own with the theme of the spotty mouse!


     Blue Dress: £12.00 Miss Selfridge
    Dress: £19.99 Missguided
    Jeans: £40.00 Topshop
    Wellies: £38 Topshop
    Vans: £44.99 Surfdome

    Just a few essentials for my wardrobe this Autumn/ Winter, in desperate need of some wellies to take my cheeky collie on a walk in the snow :)
    Hope you enjoyed this post :)

    Passion For Fashion

    I have been asked by Louise at moneysupermarket.com to participate in their competition Passion for Fashion where bloggers need to create 5 different looks to suit 5 different occassions; party, casual, outdoor, first date and office wear, creating the ultimate autumn/winter wardrobe. Each outfit must be no more than £200. Here are my outfits enjoy!



    Leggings: £ 12.99 Missguided
    Jumper: £ 12.99 Missguided
    Shoes: £75 Topshop
    Bag: £65 River Island

    Total £165.98
    In Autum and winter I do love to wear knitted and it is really comfy, I am loving burgundy at the moment it is such a warm colour. for this outfit I chose comfy leggings, shoes and a easy bag to carry that will fit in all your things that you need. This outfit would be good to wear out for a Sunday dinner or on a lazy day to university. The creepers I love it brings out the outfit more and makes it a little more trendy and they are very comfy. again the leggings have studs on but I think it will still be on trend though Autumn. The lovely brown bag reminds me of the leaves that start falling of the trees. 


    Jacket: £55 River island
    Bag: £35 Miss Selfridge
    Top: £16 Topshop
    Leggings: £25 Urban Outfitters
    Wellies: £30 Topshop
    Sunglasses: £16 Topshop

    Total: £177
    Wanting this jacket so badly, there is a cheaper version in Primark at the moment and it looks very good quality and similar to the real things in Topshop and River Island. I love to go on a walk with my dog and this is comfy but trendy at the same time. I just adore baggy t-shirts it creates a comfy but stylish piece to your outfits. gives you the freedom to move in your outfit. You need a good pair of wellies for the outdoors to walk freely without worrying about your shoes, these are a good price and good quality. I just want to go and purchase this outfit, love the burgundy leggings and it brings out the blacks and browns of the other pieces. Autumn is a lovely cosy month and that's what you need in your outfits, you could even add a beanie to this outfit. I chose the leopard print bag to bring a little bit of pattern to the outfit, it is gorgeous.

    Dress: £32.99 Miss Guided
    Ring: £10 Topshop
    Shoes:£25 Boohoo
    Bag:£18 Miss Selfridge
    Necklace: £12.50 Topshop

    Total: £98.49
    I wanted to create a kind of 'gothic' trend to this outfit with a lot of dark colours and a pop of white to bring out the Autumn/ winter style because of the browns and gold. The necklace is really cute with the fox head it brings the outfit together and you defiantly need some shiny jewelry on a night out. The ring fits in perfect with the colour theme I wanted to have for the season. studs are everywhere at the moment and I must say I would buy anything that has studs on at the moment just love it. 

    Top:£26.99 Glamorous 
    Jeans: £25 Topshop
    Bag: £40 River Island 
    Lipstick: £8 Topshop
    Shoes:£32 Topshop

    Total: £131.99
    I really think that black and white looks so nice together, it might be the obvious colours to choose for the office but I think you can play with bits of the outfit, as I have done with the shoes adding a tad of colour to it. These shoes look smart but on trend at the same time. Topshop lipstick and the outfit is complete. This is not a bad price at all for a whole outfit that included a bag. Perfect!


    Jacket: £65 Topshop
    Top: £16.99 New Look
    Disco Pants: £74 American Apparel 
    Shoes: £37.99 Miss Guided
    Bag: £25 River Island

    Total: £217.99
    To lower this price you could purchase this Jacket £29.99 H&M 
    Grand Total: £182.98
    This outfit is perfect I would love to own this one as it is fun and has a splash of colour through all the black, I wanted this to happen as peplum tops are in at the moment and gives many body shapes a good look. The pop of colour with the floral design makes it stand out, it is a good price as well. 
    Everyone loves the disco pants these pull in what you want to hide and gives your body a good sexy look specially with the stud heels. I want to own these shoes so pretty with the stud details.
    This outfit will make you stand out and look on trend and pretty on your first date. Perfect for a meal or even going to the cinema. The floral gives it a girly pop to it.
    He will be ringing you for a second date after this.


    Love doing these type of posts and I really did enjoy it.
    Hope you love the outfits :)

    Wardrobe Envy



    Wardrobe Envy:

    This weeks well most weeks wardrobe envy is Katy Perry, she always looks super amazing. super big fan of Katy Perry as she is such a fun loving beautiful style icon and as far as I see a strong loving person. Everything she wears she pulls of 100% and she is so versatile that she can wear and be styled into anything and it will sell and look beautiful.
    She has a down to earth style that girls can relate to when she is out and about round festivals etc which is always good to see, she always dresses to her body and looks good.
    Her style always catches attention but for the good reasons she loves to always play with fashion and it works. What I love as well she plays with colour on her hair and it stands out and I think she is always her own person and has a input into her style.
    I love all the fun patterns and colours that she wears on stage and off, love all the fun outfits she had on stage last year when I went to watch her show in Manchester.
    All the patterns and colours can be so much fun and I would defiantly want her wardrobe.
    Love seeing her style in magazines and I most likely will buy it if she is in the magazine or on the cover. she is my favorite star by far!

    What do you think of Katy Perrys style?

    £50 challenge- Boohoo.com




    I have been asked by Fashionvouchers.com to do a post about an outfit that I can find on Boohoo for £50 and post about it. So here is my choice of outfit and I thought I would add a personal occasion to it by looking for something I would wear on my boyfriends 21st meal at the end of September :)

    Original price -£20

    Total: £47 :)


    This outfit I adore because it is simple but effective with all the little details such as the middle pattern of the dress, the cat faces on the shoes and the studs on the bag. I am a big fan of anything cute and with studs on. at the moment I do love wearing something black out to an occasion because of how slimming it is and you can pair it with some colour and it would stand out. 
    I adore the cat faces on the shoes, I have been meaning to buy the flats of these for ages but I just cannot afford it yet. They are adorable and would look so cute even with a pair of jeans so these can be handy as a purchase that you can wear even to go to the cinema. 

    The dress I adore as it is simple but such a cute shape, I think this would be perfect to wear to a meal out with the family and even to wear with flats on holiday having some drinks. I love the cut out detail it makes the dress even more interesting and you can fit it to wear out for a night out as well as simple on a hot day with some flip flops. I would love to wear this to my boyfriends birthday meal :)

    I chose the bag in black as well to match it to my dress and shoes, I thought it would look good with a bit of a edgy detail to it with the studs. I would buy anything with studs on as I just adore it at the moment. It is such a cute bag and could see myself using it more than once. It would be easy to carry and fit in what you need such as purse and phone. such a lovely style of bag and the quality looks amazing.
    The earrings I chose in gold as I love wearing gold jewelry it makes your outfit stand out and thought I would add them to go with the style of the bag. They are super cute and not bad for £5. I think the earrings will finish off the outfit perfectly and look a bit more edgy. 




    Hope you enjoyed this post.
    I love this outfit! Do you agree?

    what would you wear with this dress?
