Autumn Wishlist

27 October 2014

Hey guys! Ah, I'm so happy its finally half term, this has been one of the longest school terms ever it feels like. It's annoying though because there are so many things I want to do and so many people I want to see in this half term, when in reality I should spend most of it revising. Not to mention how much this stresses me out because I know at least three of the days there is no chance of me revising at all. Oh gosh, okay but let's not worry about that yet. Also, I finally moved into my new room, hurrah, but its a mess and totally unorganised still. However when it is finally done and I'm happy with it, I am so excited to show you.

I forgot to number them but the order of the link goes from the coat to the skirt to the body chain to the jeans to the socks to the dress to the striped tshirt to the jumper to the shoes to the beanie. Glad we cleared that out.

I remember last year seeing a coat like that one but in green from Urban Outfitters and I just really love this style of coats. I probably wont get one, because it's outrageously priced (as most of the things on this wishlist are) but maybe one day. Also the skirt, you've probably seen it before it's everywhere, it costs £55 or something but I love it so much, If if I could have one shop where I got all the things from free, it would be a tough choice between Urban Outfitters or American Apparel. I think the skirt is really cute and with a black long sleeved top would look so adorable, but I'm not really a huge fan of skirts and it would  be too risky I feel to spend £55 because deep down, I know I wouldn't wear it much. I did kind of find a cheap copy of it on Boohoo though, it's a skort rather than a skirt, but that makes it more appealing to me to be honest! I'll try and find you guys a link because I'm pretty sure it's less than half the price and it is so similar!

I really want ripped black skinny jeans like those ones in the picture, but I'd rather they had more rips, I brought some skinnies from Primark hoping they would fit and then I was going to rip them, but alas, they fit me really oddly. I'm hoping tomorrow (trip to Oxford Street heck yeah) I can buy some black skinnies then rip them myself, or buy some already ripped some but whichever is cheaper and looks bettert. Also, the black midi dress wasn't in stock when I checked, but oh my god I think its so cute. With one of those long crystal necklaces it would look so nice, and it could be jazzed up or made casual, I've wanted a midi dress or skirt for ages and though this was really nice, but I guess it wasn't meant to be.

Gosh I can talk or ages about clothes. The jumper at the bottom, I really, really want, it looks so cosy and comfy and with a pair of ripped black skinnes it would look perfect I feel and a beanie. I'm really tempted to buy it but I've forgotten the price and let's be real, it's from American Apparel, it's going to cost a fortune. Maybe I'll be able to find a similar cheaper one from Primarks mens. Who knows. I brought a body chain similar to the one pictured the other day and I will include it in an outfit post soon because it's so cool, I also really want on of those rings like with a chain that goes into a bracelet. If you get what I mean. I just think they're really cool.

Okay that's it for today guys, sorry for being so inactive and for this kind of rambling post, I just want so many clothes and thought this would be a good post but it just kind of went really rambly.

Culotte Shorts

20 October 2014

Hey guys! Gosh, I know it's been ages but I finally have a post that I'm happy to upload. I made loads of posts before but they weren't something that I would necessarily want to read or were particularly good in a any way so I didn't bother posting them. However, I am finally back with an outfit post!! My Asos order came yesterday and let me tell you, I am very excited to wear all these clothe. On Friday night I went to London with my family to see Charlie and The Chocolate Factory in the theater (it was amazing by the way I highly recommend it) but I thought it would be appropriate to wear some new clothes.

It's a tad annoying because I was running quite late so I couldn't take any good quality pictures with my camera and I was quite proud of this outfit, if we're all being honest, but luckily my mum felt the need to take a picture of me, so I stole those.

These shorts are probably my new favourite thing. They're comfortable and can be worn in summer, and winter with tights, can be dressed up or dressed down and are super cute. In my opinion. I got three pairs of these from Asos, but only kept two since one was £16 and the other two were £8 in the sale so it was like two for the price of one. Although the ones I got rid of were really cute they had a tartan print and I really want the American Apparel tartan tennis skirt (although it's very expensive I do believe I have half of the amount needed on a voucher, but I, not sure) or I found a cheaper similar version of on Boohoo and I'll probably end up getting one of those so I didn't really need to keep the tartan shorts. Also, I don't technically need three pairs of culottes shorts. 

Such amazing quality. Also, sorry for not sorting out my socks for this picture
Shorts - Asos (not exact ones)
Top - American Apparel
Shoes - Office (not exact but similar) (or these but mine are in burgundy)
Socks - Urban Outfitters (I think, they're just generic glittery socks to be honest)(I can't find a link for any though)
Hat - Accesorize (similar)

Anyway I paired it with my black velvet crop top (as seen here), but I also think it would go really nicely with like a black vest type thing, I don't know how to explain what I mean, but basically I think the too you wear with this doesn't necessarily have to be tight or cropped. In my head when I planned my outfit I imagined it with my black Vagabonds (these) but my sister had borrowed them so instead I wore hers (can we just take a minute to appreciate how fabulous it is that we can share shoes oh so glorious) and we were going to swap when we met up in London, but then couldn't be bothered. In case you were wondering. But yeah, also to really jazz it up I wore this black, bowler hat I think it's called? I think I wore this once in a previous outfit post but when it came to going out I didn't actually wear it, but this time I did, and let me tell you in this lipstick and the hat I felt so first class and fierce. I'm excited to wear this duo more often, honestly I felt so prestige in it but in a good way, I loved it!

I finally got a choker from Asos too!I want loads more now as well, they're so cute but I want to find some different places to buy some, so if you know any please let me know! man I cant believe how late I was to jump on this bandwagon, chokers are great! I really want some silver necklaces which I can pair with this to do a layering affect or something. Oh gosh, I just want all the chokers!
Sorry for abandoning you for two weeks, I have reasons, not good ones, but I do not plan on leaving again for that long. Ever. Also, I'm nervous to open Bloglovin' because I'm pretty sure I have like 500 posts to read. I can't believe how long I left the whole blog world for, gosh never again. I will be back soon, possibly Friday, possibly Monday but how ever long it is, definitely not in two weeks time! Also woah I just had to do some HTML editing for this post and woah that was not fun. But see you soon!:)

Favourite Lip Products

6 October 2014

Hey guys! So as winter is coming and so are the dark lipsticks I thought I'd show you some of my favourite lip products but these are mainly from all the seasons. I do have one dark lipstick though, and I plan on getting another one, I remember last year I saw Topshop had a really nice one, but I decided on a different colour from Rimmel, so I'm hoping this year Topshop have the same one.

Topshop Whimsical |  Kate Moss Rimmel 108  |  Carmex  | Kate Moss Rimmel 101  | Kate Moss Rimmel 110

I have two red lipsticks, but this one is my favourite of the two. The other one is a Little Mix one and is more of a deep red, but this one is bolder and brighter which I like. Good for summer and going out. It's matte which I like, but it sticks to dry lips very easily. It also doesn't last that long though and gets really patchy, like the inside will fade and it looks like I have a bright red lip liner on. But I really like the colour and think it is really good, worth the price.

Wow, there is a lot of Rimmel here. I get scared to try new brands in case they're not good and I think these are really trustworthy. I don't have  much to say about this one though except that it's cute and easy to wear. It looks more purple/shimmery in these but it's not, it's really natural and subtle. It makes your lips look a nice colour but not overwhelming.

The Topshop lipstick was one of my daily wears in summer. I like the orange of the lipstick but when it's on it doesn't look ridiculous. It's matte as well, actually I think all my lipsticks are, and applies really nicely. It lasts a while and I don't know if its just because its a neutral-ish shade, but it never stains my lips like the Rimmel ones do, well they don't stain my lips but if  I get a tiny bit on my face and try to rub it away they stay for ages. Plus, this one doesn't leave a weird lip liner look around my lips. It lasts a while and I think the packaging is really cute.

This isn't that dark of a lipstick, well it kind of is. It's a dark red colour, but not that dark. It's cute though and easy to wear and can make any lazy outfit seem appropriate. I know most lipsticks can do this, but I don't know this lipstick really can help make a massive jumper and leggings be appropriate to wear on a nice day out. Not saying you cant wear that anyway, but you know when you just need something extra, this lipstick helps. I hope this makes sense. I think I want a more dark purple though this winter even though I don't need it. Oh well, if I have the money and still want it maybe I will..

Lastly, Carmex. Whats much to say about Carmex, it keeps my lips hydrated, is hydrated the right word?? It refrains my lips from getting dry and chapped basically, which is especially needed in winter. When I first used Carmex I was a bit like,' what the heck why is it minty' but now I'm used to it and it does its job well.
