FOTD & Mermaid Hair

Friday, 11 April 2014

Hey guys! Today I've decided to write a quick post about the make-up I'm wearing today and I thought I'd just inform you about my new hair! As you guys probably know I have very light blonde hair - I was feeling a little bored this morning so I decided to dig through my cupboards for the Bleach London colours which I had bought ages ago. I found 'washed up mermaid' which is a lovely turquoise colour. I used my hands to apply the dye onto the ends of my hair and left it on for 15 minutes. Now, on the bottle of the dye it says to use gloves - I didn't do this and now I have blue hands! So make sure that you wear gloves. Anyway, after washing the dye off and drying my hair I am so impressed with how its gone - the colour is lovely and vibrant and I think I applied it really well. Normally when applying colour at home I have my mum's help but today's colour was a solo endeavour
Anyway, onto today's face...

 Okay, so as a base I'm wearing Mac face and body in C1. I always go back to this foundation in the warmer months because it provides a lovely sheer, dewy coverage. Under my eyes & on my chin I applied the Collection concealer in fair. I then applied my Mac cream blush in 'optimistic orange' which looks really daring in the pan but I find that it really brightens up my complexion Then I applied the sleek bronzer from the light contour palette to contour my face and applied Mac's mineralize skinfinish in Porcelain Pink.
On my eyes I'm wearing the 'satin taupe' eyeshadow by Mac, and I've just taken that onto the lower lashline too. I blended a little bit of hustle from the Naked 1 palette in the outer corner of my eye. I also applied Mac's kohl liner in 'teddy' to my waterline. I then finished off the eyes by applying L'oreal's telescopic mascara in 'carbon black.' On my lips I'm wearing Mac's 'rebel'.

Spring Wishlist 2014

Wednesday, 9 April 2014

Hey guys! Today I'm going to be talking about my spring wishlist. We all know that the dull dreary UK weather is starting to disappear and the days are becoming light and sunny! Of course all of us know that this is the perfect excuse to go on a splurge in order to brighten up our wardrobes. I don't know if it's just me, but every time the next season comes round I look at my wardrobe and I can hardly find any clothes from the previous year. Like where are my clothes from Spring/Summer 13! Ah well, this is yet another justification for my future spending sprees.
In this post I've picked out six items from the high street that I am seriously lusting over and NEED - yes need - for my spring & summer wardrobe. I've not included any Primark items in this wishlist because Primark doesn't have an option to shop online - so on the website we can't really see all they have to offer. I am pretty sure I will end up wandering into Primark and picking up a few pieces anyway.

1. Light pink mini structured tote bag - I saw this lovely bag when I was in River Island with my mum. The lovely baby pink colour made the bag stand out to me and when I saw it I was instantly sold. The bag is also quite small - but large enough to fit in all of your essentials. For me this is a really nice size, if I'm spending long summer days out and about I don't really want to drag around a massive bag.

2. White all star dainty canvas trainers - I'm pretty sure that we all need a pair of Converse in our lives and these little beauties will be perfect for those casual Spring/Summer outfits, especially if you're like me and prefer to wear comfy footwear. I think the white is a perfect choice of colour because that means that these shoes will go perfectly with all colours including those pretty pastel hues that we all go crazy over during the warmer months!

3. Stand out flower prom dress - This dress is absolutely gorgeous! I think this dress would look amazing dressed up for a special occasion or a nice meal during this season. The mint colour is bang on trend and contrasts perfectly with the grey rose print on the dress. I think this colour would look really nice on my super pale skin but I also think it would probably look pretty fierce on those ladies with very dark skin.

4. Pretty lace vest - During the warmer months I love to wear white on my top half, I think it's because white is super easy to style and can basically be teamed up with almost anything. This lace vest is typically 'me' and I think it's a super cute little top that every girl should have in their wardrobe this Spring.

5. Mint contrast neon print wrap skort - Ok, so when I was little I remember being dressed in Skorts and now they've made a huge come back I just have to have one! I prefer the look of the patterned skorts because I think they look a little more 'fun' and casual than the plain ones. This one is a lovely pastel mint colour with a contrasting floral pattern which I think looks really cute and girly.

6. Green crochet trim ditsy floral cami - In the hot weather camis are the perfect thing to wear due to them being so lightweight. This one has such a pretty print and would look gorgeous paired with some denim shorts and converse. It can also be dressed up if you need to transition your outfit for an evening look.

Okay guys so that's my Spring 2014 wishlist done! Please comment below and tell me what you think of these pieces & also tell me if you've found any amazing buys for Spring.
