NYX Lip liner and Soft Matte Lip Cream Review!

14398152_332087850471059_1442604764_n

While on a shopping in Barnsley (a town near where I live) I popped into boots and spotted an NYX counter! I don’t have one where I live so I was sooo excited when I spotted it! Something I have been wanting to try by NYX for ages is their soft matte lip creams because I have heard so much about them. I had to stop myself from buying the entire counter haha so in the end I picked up these 2 items: The soft matte lip cream in the shade 06 Instanbul and the retractable lip liner in the shade soft pink.

Retractable lip liner (soft pink)- I am not a massive fan of retractable lip liners just because I feel like they don’t last as long as pencil liners but since I loved the colour of this I got it anyway. I love this lip liner because it is quite soft, when you apply this it glides on the lips and doesn’t drag. The formula is really good and doesn’t smudge when its on.

Soft matte lip cream (Istanbul)- I am in love with the shade of this lipstick! Its like a pinky nude shade and perfect to pair with neutral makeup looks. I like the formula of this because its not too drying and it doesn’t crack once it dries which is a problem I have with some matte liquid lipsticks. This is more like a cream as the name suggests, which I love.

Those are the swatches of the lip liner and matte lip cream! The lip cream isn’t quite that dark in person its slightly lighter but its soooo nice I love it!

These are the first products I have tried by NYX and I am very impressed. Both products stayed on really well and are really good quality for an affordable price at £5.50 each.

Have you ever tried any products by NYX? If you have any reccomendations please make sure to let me know in the comments below!

I have been so inspired by the brand ‘The Ragged Priest’ recently,  I just love all of the pieces in their collection. I made a mood board with some of the pieces from their shop that I have been loving.

Sweetdreams mom jean (here) Make believe crop top (here) Bow crop top (here)

The jeans are hand painted which I think is amazing and they are super cute too! I am in love with these and I have been looking for some mom jeans for ages, unfortunately I can not afford to pay £95 *cries*

The next picture is just wow! I love both the top and skirt they are amazing. Sometimes when I go clothes shopping I have no idea what I am looking for but I feel like when I go onto the Ragged Priest website I just want everything!

The bow crop top is actually listed as ‘bow tits top’ but I didn’t call it that above as that wouldn’t be very lady like of me hahaha… I really like this one but its not something I would wear myself because I just know by looking at it that it wouldn’t suit me, but I just had to add it in anyway because I really like it!

*TIP* If you are ever so slightly skint like me but also love expensive brands like the ragged priest or others, search them on depop, I found this recently and I am addicted! YOURE WELCOME!

Do you like the Ragged Priest? Which pieces have you been loving recently?

♡ Beauty Stocking Filler Ideas! ♡

kkkkkkk

I don’t know about you, but I really love cute stocking fillers! I love shopping for Christmas presents, especially beauty related ones. So that is why I will be doing a post including some ideas for beauty stocking fillers. If you still have some Christmas shopping left to do then this post may give you a few ideas!

Soap and glory is a brand that I am sure will be on many peoples Christmas list as it is loved by so many people, I think ‘hand food’ and ‘heel genius’ are the perfect products to buy as a gift, you could pair hand food with a cute little manicure set and heel genius with a pedicure set and some fluffy socks. Soap and glory also have many Christmas sets of their products, which would also make a great gift for anyone who loves bath and body products.

I think that perfumes and body sprays are also cute stocking fillers, I recently bought this perfume from H&M for myself and I loved it so much that I decided to buy another as a gift. The bow on this is so cute and the perfume was only £1.99! It also smells amazing.

The Nspa body butters smell amazing and there are so many different scents to choose from. They also do body sprays and shower gels that would also be a good stocking filler idea!

For anyone that likes false eyelashes, these make the perfect gift, at £1 the Primark false eyelashes are super affordable and they are good quality too! You could buy a few different ones as there are different styles of these including dramatic, natural and sultry.

The last stocking filler idea is a hand lotion I picked up from Superdrug, they have an amazing Christmas range. I think the packaging of this is lovely and it makes a nice little present.

I hope you liked this post and it maybe gave you a few ideas for a few last minute stocking fillers.

Thanks for reading!

Primark, H&M and Charity Shop Haul!

11987047_165158487163997_660949570599742448_n

Hello! On Tuesday I went into town to do some shopping, after saving up for a bit I thought it was time to treat myself. Well, I tell myself that so I don’t feel as bad haha!

So my first stop was H&M obviously because its my favourite!! I got this pastel blue sweatshirt in the sale for £3! I am in love with this jumper… I’m actually wearing it now as I’m writing this post! I altered the bottom of it because I don’t like the tight bit that sweatshirts have at the bottom so now it is perfect!

12107250_165158117164034_3417643458297092015_n  12108308_165169390496240_9104626853786529872_n

I also got this black jumper, it was on offer for £5 which was really good because usually it would be £7.99! It is see through so I would pair it with a black crop top underneath. My favourite thing about this jumper is the gorgeous lace detail along the bottom of it.

After H&M I headed to a few charity shops, there are loads in my town and I love looking in them because you can find some really nice things. I got the Grey checked jumper for £3.50, I loved it as soon as I saw it, I love the pattern and for £3.50 it was a bargain! I also got this grey T-shirt, it is a big size but I bought it because it was only £1 and I am going to alter it into a crop top.

12027222_165158597163986_1113055230015714974_o11930804_165159260497253_6696339592414081347_o12118725_165158957163950_1273554493248905120_n12141038_165158677163978_249037844918792470_o

Next I got this black, white and grey cardigan, I love this it is slightly oversized and really warm so its perfect for the cold weather. It was only £4.25! I also got this grey long sleeve crop top for £1 just because I liked the look of it. I am not sure how I am going to style it yet but I just liked it and for £1 I couldn’t leave it behind!

After browsing in the charity shops I went into Primark, I prefer the one in Sheffield to the one near me but I did find a few things that I liked this time. I bought a black sports crop top to go underneath the black jumper that I got from H&M, I was really impressed with this when I tried it on at home, I think I might go back and get some more because they are so comfy!

I also got another sweatshirt, this time in grey. The writing ‘Fashionably late’ is definitely me because I am always late for things no matter how hard I try to be on time!

12017507_165159240497255_5027377899524907599_o

This next one was a present from my lovely partner, after debating with myself at the checkout whether to get it or not and then putting it back. When we came out of the shop he surprised me with it and I was really happy because I did want it I just didn’t want to spend too much money! It has a nice quote on it: ‘Why wait until tomorrow’

I also nipped into B&M and got these little bits… A Lovely polka dot mat that was actually on the pet aisle to put their dishes on. I got one to use as a background for photos just because I thought it looked really pretty! I also got a foot pack for nights when I feel like having a bit of a pamper! I love B&M’s Make up section because they always have a range of different things, I got this BB cream by Rimmel in the shade ‘light’ to try out because it was only £1.99! I have never used BB cream before so I am excited to try it out! I will do a review on it soon when I have used it!

12028846_165158017164044_7900406395199320741_o

Last of all I nipped into our local phone shop to get a case for my new phone, a pink one of course!

So that was everything that I got while I was shopping. It was really nice because I haven’t been for a while so I really enjoyed it!

Bye for now! Love,

The £20 Fashion Makeover!

We all like to treat ourselves now and again, I know I do! But I often find that when payday comes around I go a little too crazy and end up spending nearly all of my money.

I am always trying to find new ways to save money, especially recently because me and my partner are going on a little trip away soon and we are trying to save up for it. So I was inspired to write this post- The £20 Fashion Makeover! In this post I have chosen 3 different looks that each cost £20 or less for the whole outfit.

So this was the first outfit that I put together, I think it would look really nice with a pair of Chelsea boots or ballet pumps. The jeans are £10 from Primark and the Jumper is £8.99 from New look which I think is a bargain and the colour of it is just gorgeous!

You can find the jumper here and the jeans here

I am in love with this next look, especially the A-line skirt! I have wanted one for a while but I don’t think I really suit skirts. This whole outfit is from Primark and comes to exactly £20!  This outfit can be paired with black tights on colder days and some cute little boots for the perfect winter outfit.

Top- £4 (link here)    A-line skirt- £8 (link here)    Brown saddle bag- £8 (link here)

final 3

This next look came to just £15.99! I like this outfit because its just a nice comfy outfit that you can dress up with a few accessories. I would usually go for black leggings instead of navy but for some reason there isn’t any black ones on the Primark website. My favourite part of this outfit is the wrap cardigan, its perfect to just throw on over pretty much any outfit!

Leggings- Primark £4 (link here)   Top- Primark £4 (link here)   Cardigan- H&M £7.99 (link here)

final 5

I hope you guys liked this post! I really enjoyed making this post and putting some outfits together for £20 or less.

Bye for now!

Lots of love,

Dungarees ~ 3 Looks

Hello everyone! Yesterday my dungarees came in the post and I am so excited to show them to you! They are Topshop ones but I got them from Ebay for £30 which was a bargain as they are £48 in Topshop at the moment. I have wanted some for so long and I really love the style of the Topshop ones, they are just so nice!

So I wanted to share with you guys 3 different ways I have chosen to style my Dungarees. For this first look I chose this thin purple jumper, perfect for the start of autumn when its quite cold but not quite thick jumper weather. I chose my black trainers to go with the outfit, I love these so much they are really comfy and go with so many of my clothes.

new c

Jumper- Charity shop find   /   Trainers- Topshop

For the second look I chose my Green H&M jumper which is a little thicker than the first jumper. I love the H&M jumpers because they are the perfect shape and just hang really nicely. I always buy a large because I prefer a more oversized look. For this outfit I chose my Snakeskin pumps, you may have figured out I’m a fan of comfy shoes by now!

new b

Jumper- H&M   /   Pumps- Garage shoes

And of course for the last look I chose the classic striped top, I have seen striped tops paired with dungarees a few times and I just couldn’t resist! I think they just look so cute together! I chose to pair my black ballet pumps with this outfit.

Top- Dorothy Perkins   /   Pumps- Garage shoes

I hope you all liked this post, if any of you have dungarees how do you style yours?

Love,
