L'oreal colour riche lipstck.

This is not a big post because I'm a little tired from the fun of Christmas Day; I hope you had a lovely day. 

 I recently bought this lipstick and I love it so much that i just had to tell you about it. I was in duty free in the airport on the way to Ireland and I was browsing when I saw these beautiful L'Oreal lipsticks. I don't wear many bright colours because I don't feel like they suit me, so finding a really nice natural colour lipstick was great. The shade is 325.

The consistency is moisturising and sheer, but they lovely colour is still obvious with out being too in your face for want of a better phrase. It's is great for when you don't want to wear lots of makeup or you want a natural look when you bold eye look. It was only £6 something in duty free which is a bargain, so the next time I see I will defiantly purchase another as it has become a big part of my everyday makeup routine. 

I thought it would be good as L'Oreal is a great brand, but even the best brands can let you down sometimes however this did not and I'm really glad I bought it. I think everyone should have a great natural coloured lipstick, because it can make the world of difference.

What makeup do you wear everyday?

Garish Christmas jumper?

'Tis the season to wear jumpers. Tra la la laa la la... Anyway it's getting closer to that time of year: Christmas!! I love the traditions surtounding Christmas like family gathering together, celebrating the birth of Jesus, the food and of course the jumpers. I've uploaded it a bit early, because I'm going to Ireland for a couple of days where there is no internet. 

At school we had a Christmas jumper day to raise money for charity which is great as it is fun and for a good course. I already had one jumper, but it's more of a jumper dress, so I really wanted to purchase a new one. At the moment Primark is filled with jumpers from more traditional ones like mine to the most garish things you will ever see. Even though the funny fake Santa belly jumper made me laugh, I really wanted something I could really wear everyday. Therefore I went for this reindeer pattern jumper which is a wool blend, do it may not be the softest,but it's defiantly comfy, 

I think the colours are so me,because I wear a lot of dark blues and burgundy, so the jumper is perfect for my wardrobe. Hopefully I will wear it for many Christmas' to come and if not it was only £13, so I won't feel like I've poured money down the drain. There is such a mixture of different Christmas jumpers in Primark that I would strongly recommend you popping in to have a look. 

Do you have a Christmas jumper or do you leave it to others to embarrass themselves like me?

Sparkle in winter.

Hello, I hope you are having a lovely day. I'm uploading now, because I had some technical difficulties with a card reader, but I have now resolved the issue. 
Last week I was scouring the internet as one does, because I decided I needed new shoes;  I asked my sister if I needed them and she said "you always need new sparkly shoes", so I went ahead and bought them,which is probably not true, but when I saw these I just knew that I would wear them all the time.

I was right! The black goes with everything and the style is really cute for every day and in the evening. Also, they are really comfortable which is a big plus for me as I have to do a lot of walking, so not getting blisters is a great thing. They were £25 and were completely worth it as I have worn them everyday for a week now to show that they really do go with everything.

I was afraid that the jewels on the front would not be totally secure, but the quality is unbelievable. However the fabric is satin which is not great in the rain, however they are really easy to keep clean and looking new. I would recommend these to anyone because Asos always gets it right. (You can tell I love Asos.) What are your favorite shoes?

*These were bought by myself and the opinions expressed are my own.

Winter Style. Arboretum.

So its December and windy which means everyone needs a nice warm winter coat. I've already spoken about this one in a previous post, but I wanted to show another possible outfit that is comfy to wear in the day time and is warm enough that it keeps the wind off. 

My sister, niece and I went for a walk in the local, beautiful Arboretum, so because my sister is amazing at taking photos: she very kindly tries to make me look photogenic. Her blog is here.
This outfit is mostly Primark which makes it really affordable when you are at sixth form age and you don't have a lovely paying job. 
I bought this bag from Accessorize in September and it has served me well so far. I use it as a school bag, because even though it doesn't look very big its like a Tardis when I need to fit all my textbooks in.

My pinafore dress is not something I would usually go for, but I think I've made it work. I love it for school, so I can look a bit different from other people, but still not stick out too much. Again, I'm wearing my Foxford scarf and black boots. These are not the same boots as the last post, because they decided they no longer wanted to be together in one piece. These are from eBay like the old ones and are just as robust. 
The jewellery is also from Primark; I mostly prefer jewellery that is small especially for school.  

What winter outfits do you usually wear?

Autumn leaves style. November

Hello, how are you? I'm sorry that this post is late. but we had unforeseen visitors, so I didn't have time to do anything. We also have visitors today.so I put his together as quickly as possible.

In England it is obviously cold at the this time of year, so walking to school at 8:30 am is not always pleasant. I love coats and I love getting a bargain in Primark, so when I found this Camel coloured boyfriend coat at £25 I was over the moon I wasn't quite sure at first however my sister said it looked great and I trust her opinion. It is so warm and cozy. 
I'm wearing my trusty green jumper again (I do wear other clothes I promise.) and my grey skirt from H and M which is also worn on a regular basis. I think it was about £3.99 or something like that from their amazing basic range. It is so nice to have a shop that can just offer me good quality basics in one place and at a good price. 

My scarf is one of my favorite items, because it from the Foxford woolen mills in Co. Mayo in Ireland where I spend my holidays every year. The Mill is a museum and a beautiful shop full of quality and carefully made items. They are worth their price every time, because they will last a lifetime. My mum bought a throw for her friend for a wedding gift 20 years ago and it is still going strong even after dealing with family life and everything that comes with it. When she visited us in Ireland she then bought three more for a child to have as they grow up. I cant speak highly enough and I really want to buy another. 

After the previous photo. Leaves everywhere,

Have a lovely day. What have you been keeping warm in?

The coat and jumper can be found at Primark.

Review. Benefit's roller lash mascara.

Hello, I've done something I probably shouldn't have done. Oh well. I went shopping with my sister a few days ago for fun. It was after payday. I treally wanted to buy something nice and a little more special for myself. That sounds very selfish, but I was rewarding myself. 
I've heard great things about benefit make up and as I have the porefessional primer i knew had to be a least 'alright'. I was right for once. It is fantastic. 

I've been using it for a few days and I've really noticed a difference in the length of my lashes however in you're looking for major volume this is not the product for you, I think Benefit's 'they're real' is better for that. My lashes have never been amazing or thick, but this product is great for everyday and evening as it lengthens, slightly thickens and it doesn't clump up your lashes and stick them together. This my new favourite mascara and it is worth the price. (£19.50) shock horror! 
What'd your favourite mascara? 
Have a great week.

Autumn style.

Hello, I really love wraping up warm in autumn with cosy jumpers and scarfs and I think this look really captures this. I went to Clumber park which is owned by the national trust  and is a beautiful walk, especially in autumn. It was my nieces second birthday, so we had a picnic and a walk with ice cream in the woods. A great day was had by all.

I wore my new green, thin jumper from Primark. I wear it all the time and I have it in other colours. It is defiantly a sixth form staple.
It is £4.50, so its an absolute bargain. Is fantastic in every way apart from people start to notice. "Isn't that the jumper you wore yesterday in a different colour?"  I have it in dark green, burgundy and mustard and I'm trying to reframe myself from buying more.

The jeans are another staple of mine. There is nothing particular exciting about them, but they just go with everything in autumn and winter. They were £10 in the sale, but they are slightly too long for my little legs. The same goes for my leather jacket, but that actually fits.

I've already written about my new favourite shoes here.

 I hope you're having a lovely autumn day.

My new autumn shoes.

 I am truly enjoying autumn and everything that comes with, but most of all I'm loving the fashion. I love the colours and comfyness of autumn clothes so I tend to keep to the same clothes. I really wanted to try something completely new.
I've been looking at some similar shoes on Asos but my sister came across these in Debenhams, so she very kindly bought them for me.

These leopard print shoes are not everyone's cup of tea and I wasn't even sure about them at first as I usually wear plainer clothes and avoid patterns. I decided to just go for it and push the boat out because I think fashion should be fun and a bit crazy. It should be who you are and for me that is crazy. 
I've been wearing these shoes for a week now and I love them even with the blister they gave me. They have made my black jeans and plain thin jumpers so much more interesting which is great in sixth form as I can express myself more now I don't wear uniform anymore.

I've never worn shoes from kurt Geiger before, so it was fun to try as I usually buy shoes from Primark as they get worn a lot! My feet no longer grow, do the only time I get get rid of my shoes is when they get ruined which happens more often then it should. I'm going to try hard to take care of these shoes because they were a present and I think they are pretty.

Have a lovely day.

 You can find them here at Debenhams.
