Fashion Haul – March ’17

Recently I’ve bought quite a lot of new clothes. Some of it is just general things that I needed and some of it is for Spring/Summer and my holiday that I’m going on soon. I thought I’d share a few of the bits that I’ve been buying as I always like too see what fashion pieces people like so I thought some of you might too and I’ve not done a fashion haul in ages. Anyway, I really hope you enjoy this and please let me know of anywhere that has nice Summer clothes – everywhere still has Winter clothes and I’m in need of more Summer pieces!

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Core Shoes, £45
I bought these because I needed them. Worst reason for buying something – I did not need them, I wanted them. I got them in a UK 7 which is not my size but they didn’t have my size in stock so now I have pair of shoes that don’t fit me…

H&M Black & White Short T-Shirt, £6.99
I just bought this because it looked quite cute and I convinced myself that I definitely need more tops and I definitely need more black tops because it’s definitely acceptable to have 50 black tops. I got this in an XS which fits well.

Topshop Moto Black Joni Jeans, £36
I needed a new pair of black jeans as I’d had my other pair for three years and eventually the zip broke. Topshop jeans are the best jeans ever, they are so comfy and I’d recommend them to anyone. I got the size W26L32 which fit perfectly.

Dorothy Black High Shine Trim Parka Coat, £55
Even though it’s not even Winter anymore and I won’t need to wear this for much longer (I say that, I live in the UK, I could wear this all year round) I just wanted a new coat. I got it in a UK 8 which is a good fit for a jacket.

ASOS Seersucker Stripe Beach Crop Top Co-ord Blue/White, £16
This is something that I bought for my holiday and for Summer. It’s meant to be worn at the beach over a bikini top but it’s definitely nice enough to be worn off the beach too. I got it in a UK 6 which fits well. I’ve had to link the petite version of this as the one I got seems to be completely out of stock.

Abercrombie & Fitch Black Cross Back Cami, £16
I got this because I really like wearing things like this in Spring and Summer and I thought it might be similar to my favorite one from Topshop. It’s not but I really like it and the back is really nice. I got this in the size XS and it fits perfectly but I’d rather it was oversized.

ASOS Mix and Match Micro Triangle Bikini Top in Rib Mint, £9
I really like ASOS mix and match bikinis because you get to chose the exact style you want. I thought this bikini top because I thought it looked really cute. I do really like it and I got it in the size UK 6 and it fits perfectly.

ASOS Mix and Match Deep Band Brazilian Bikini Bottom in Rib Mint, £9
To match the bikini top I got this bikini bottom because it looked a bit different from normal bikini bottoms. I really like these and ASOS bikinis are really good quality. I got this in a UK 6 too and again, it fits well.

December & January Favorites 2016/17

I can’t believe it’s already time for my January favorites! I’m literally going to say that at the start of every single favorites post but I feel like everyone does, it’s not a monthly favorites if you don’t! Anyway, I feel like I should firstly just say that this is a non-beauty favorites, so if your interested in seeing my beauty favorites I posted it on Thursday. I have quite a few things to share this month so I really hope you enjoy this and please let me know what some of your favorites from January have been.

Youtubers: I have watched and loved Niomi Smart for years but I have been particularly loving her videos recently. I really enjoyed her vlogs throughout December and I’ve been loving her usually videos too. I’d recommend you go and check out her channel! Another channel that I’ve loved for years, but particularly over the past couple of months is Emily Canham Vlogs. She is just very real and relatable and I enjoy her vlogs so much. I’d highly recommend that you check out her vlog channel linked above and also her main channel too.

Books: I recently started reading The List by Siobhan Vivian. I got it for Christmas so I haven’t finished it yet (I’m not a very fast reader), in fact, I’ve not even read half of it yet but I really like it so far. I’d highly recommend that you read it if you like fictional young adult books. I’m really looking forward to reading the rest of the book.

Movies: I actually have a couple of favorite movies from the past couple of months which is surprising because I usually don’t have the patience to sit down and watch anything longer than 20 minutes. Anyway, the first movie is Casino Royale which is one of the James Bond movies. I think I watched it on Christmas Eve and I really didn’t think I’d like it but I actually really enjoyed it. The next movie is one of my favorite movies ever which I have watched before. It’s The Impossible which is about the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami which I think I watched on Boxing Day. It is quite sad and the first time I watched it I cried the whole way through it but I’d highly recommend that you watch it.

Food: There are quite a few food items which I’ve loved throughout the past couple of months that I want to share with you. The first thing is soya yoghurt which is a vegan alternative to normal yoghurt. I’m not vegan but I do eat vegan products when I can and it’s a lot better for your skin not to eat dairy. The next thing is almond milk, again another vegan product. I don’t really like normal milk anyway so I much prefer this and it will continue to be something I use on a daily basis as oppose to normal milk. The last food on my list was unripe mango. I’ve never liked ripe mango and I accidently discovered that I do like mango when it’s not ripe yet. But then last night I discovered that I actually just hate mangos. So it’s not a favorite but it was only my list so I thought I’d mention it anyway.

Apps: This is going to shock a lot of you but I only got Snapchat at the end of December after my friends made me get it. I could never be bothered with it and now I am literally addicted to it – I don’t know what I’d do without it!

Clothes: For Christmas my sister got me a Boohoo Black Cape which I have worn so much. I’m not entirely sure exactly what one it is but I’ll insert a picture of me wearing it. Also for my Christmas I got a Debenhams Dressing Gown and it’s my favorite thing ever – it’s so comfy.

Restaurants: I went to Chaophraya which is a Thai restaurant quite recently and it was amazing. The food was amazing, the atmosphere was amazing and the views of the city were amazing. I also went to Yo Sushi for the first time at the end of December and me and my friend loved it so much we went back a couple of weeks later. I’d highly recommend that you all go to both of these restaurants.

My Winter Morning Routine 2017

Today I’m going to be sharing my current Winter morning routine. I had never really thought about doing a morning or evening routine before so I really hope you enjoy this. Also please let me know what moisturiser you use and what skin type you have as I’m looking for a new moisturiser. Also let me know what kind of content you’d like to see from me in 2017 and I’ll do my best to do everything.

As I’ve not been having to get up for school I’ve been going to bed a lot later than usual and so I’ve been getting up at about 10am as oppose to 6:40am. When I wake up I’ll usually just lie in bed for half an hour or so on my phone just checking Snapchat, Facebook etc. and then I go and get some breakfast. I’ll usually have some whole wheat cereal with some light Greek yoghurt and a bit of honey. I’ll also have some fruit, which is normally an apple and sometimes some berries. To drink I’ll have two pints of water and a cup of decaf green tea with jasmine.

After I’ve had breakfast I’ll go in the shower and get washed but on this particular day I’ll be washing my hair (I wash my hair once or twice a week). I’m going to be using my favorite shampoo which is the Bleach London Silver Shampoo and I’ll wash my hair with that twice. I really love this shampoo as it is quite strong and it really tones my hair and helps me maintain my natural ashy tone. I then use the conditioner to go with that which is obviously the Bleach London Silver Conditioner which I apply to the mid-lengths and ends of my hair. I keep that in my hair for a couple of minutes while I shave etc. and then before I wash it out of my hair I brush it through with the Tresemme Ceramic Styling Brush which is waterproof just to make sure my hair doesn’t have any knots in it.

Then when I get out of the shower I put on my dressing gown and then I like to brush my teeth before doing my morning skincare routine. The first thing I do is wet my face before I use the Garnier Pure Active Anti-Blackhead Pore Wash which I really do find unblocks my pores and therefor prevents blackheads. Also the fact that it contains salicylic acid makes it perfect for acne prone/oily skin as it removes oil without stripping the skin and prevents breakouts. I then like to apply some Boots Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Toner which is also great for preventing breakouts. Lastly I like to apply some moisturiser and the one I use is E45 Cream which is prefect for dry skin but as I mentioned I’m looking for a new moisturiser so please leave your recommendations. To finish things off I like to apply a bit of lip balm and at the minute I’ve been obsessed with the Maybelline Baby Lips in ‘Mint Candy.’

Now is the time when I like to do my makeup which is my favorite part of my morning routine. I recently did a post on my every day makeup routine so you can click here for that. However there are couple of things that I’m doing differently today. I’ve finally gotten round to repurchasing my favorite powder which is Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in ‘Peach Glow’ and my makeup is instantly looking better again – I really don’t recommend the Collection powder I was using as my face powder in that post! I did my eyeshadow exactly as I did in that post but I decided to use the shade ‘Wonder’ from the Stila In The Moment Palette as my lid colour. I also did my lips differently. I used the MUA Lip Liner in ‘Caramel Nougat’ as the lip liner I used in the other post is blunt and I can’t find my sharpener anywhere (they are almost identical anyway). I also used my newest lipstick which is MAC Satin Lipstick in ‘Viva Glam II’ which is a medium mauve/nude with a little bit of pink in it – it’s a gorgeous colour.

The final part of my winter morning routine is choosing my outfit which is usually a difficult process and I often get changed quite a few times until I am satisfied with my outfit. Today I’m wearing my Forever 21 Black Crop Jumper which I feel like I wear all the time. I’m also wearing my H&M Black Jeggings and the shoes I’m wearing are my Topshop Leather Chelsea Boots which are my favorite boots ever – I just wear them all the time. I’m wearing my Boohoo Black Cape which my sister got me for Christmas and I also wore my Maya Copenhagen Faux Fur Stole which my sister also got me. The handbag I’m using is my Jasper Conran Leather Black Grab Bag which is the handbag that I use on a daily basis.

What I Got For Christmas

As I love these type of posts I thought I would make one too. I just need to put out the disclaimer that everyone does, I am not bragging about any of this at all. Let me know what the best thing you got for Christmas was and I hope you enjoy. I’m very greatful for everything I recieved and I want to say a massive thankyou to everyone. I’ll also do a Christmas haul when I’ve spent any money I recieved.

Me and my friend Christy exchamged gifts at the end of November as we don’t get to see eachother alot. From her I got a Next Alphabet Makeup Bag with the initial ‘S’on it.

And some Ted Baker Body Spray which has the same scent which I love. She also got me some New Look Stirling Silver Small Hoop Earrings which are the most beautiful earrings. Lastly, she got me 3 packets of Maltesers Merryteaser Mini Reindeer as she knows how much I love them.

Moving onto what my Mum and Dad got me. My main present was a Dell Inspiron 15 3000 Series Laptop which I am so happy I received as it will help me so much with my school work and my blog.

From my Dad’s Auntie and Uncle I got £30, some Thorntons Continental Chocolates and some M&S Glass Snowflake Tea Light Candles.

From my Mum’s best friend I got a £15 H&M Gift Card, a book called Bedtime Stories For Cats by Leigh Anne Jasheway which is the best present ever and a ChocOnChoc Handmade Dark & White Belgian Chocolate Festive Box.  

From my Granny I got a Debenhams Red & Cream Fluffy Dressing Gown which I love so much. She got me a Katy Perry Mad Love Gift Set which has a really nice scent. She also got me Girl Online Going Solo by Zoe Sugg which is obviously meant to be a really good book.

My Auntie and Uncle got me some Provoke Touch Of Silver Colour Care Shampoo which is one of my favourite shampoos. They also got me a Next Just Pink Eau De Parfum, a Next Sparkly Pink Makeup Bag and a Glamour Magazine which is one of my favourite magazines and also included a Nails Inc. Nail Varnish.

One of my Auntie’s, her boyfriend and my cousins got me a Hollister All Weather Jacket which I really like and will wear all the time.
