I cant believe I've actually started uni, like how crazy? I remember writing a post mentioning that I'd just started sixth form. Quick update: I'm planning on getting back into blogging when possible, although I want my posts to be more relaxed and lifestyle based. My posts currently are mostly beauty related. However,  I want to include a variety of different styles and aspects of my life. I personally love reading lifestyle posts and really want to try some out for myself! 


I've been at uni for just over a week now, and I'm currently right in the middle of freshers week (or two as most people have) and I just want to make it clear that 'freshers flu' is real!! I'm sat in my dorm as I'm writing this with a box of tissues, paracetamol and a massive glass of water. But on a positive note, freshers has been amazing! Tinie Tempah performed at our student union along with some other artists which was such a fab night. 


So when you first start uni you expect fire alarms and tests to be happening regularly and trust me, we've had loads, but what makes me laugh is the clothing choices. Literally, I had to go out in pj bottoms, a sports bra and no shoes or socks and whilst I thought I looked stupid I was not the only one who had clearly grabbed whatever was closest to them. 


Following on from the last point, what I love so much is that no one actually cares about what they look like when they are wondering around campus or the accommodation buildings. You think everyone will be prancing around looking all fashionable and smart, I mean we've all seen gossip girl. But the reality is, I see more people wandering around in dressing gowns and hoodies than I do wearing jeans. 


Now anyone who says they aren't bricking starting uni is lying. There's always something someone will be nervous about, whether it be making friends, getting lost or missing family and friends. However, everyone is in the same boat. In most cases there will be at least one person in your flat that feels the same as you, if not more. So don't be afraid of going up to random people in your flat and chatting to them, because it will probably help them too!


My favourite part about the whole moving process was being able to decorate my room. If theres one thing you should do if you struggle with feeling homesick is to really make your room your own. Decorate it however you want to. I have fairy light and pictures everywhere!

I have loved every second of uni since I've started, even the 7am alarms after a night out to arrive in time for lectures! I'm hoping to make a sort of uni series on my blog, or maybe write up a room tour post? Embrace uni guys! Hope you like this post, let me know if you agree with some of the points and what you've experienced since starting uni. Thank you for reading!

Hi pals, welcome back! Hope you're all well, how is it March already? Not that I'm complaining, I go to New York at the end of the month, I've never been before so I'm super excited. Please leave some recommendations in the comments below!

I was lucky enough to get  the Urban Decay 'Naked Skin' concealer for christmas last year after wanting to try it out for ages. I've had a few months to try it out so thought I'd share my opinion. I asked for the colour 'Fair Neutral' which is the lightest in  the range. I decided to go with this colour as I wanted a concealer I could use when I go out in the evening to get that Kim K highlight. 

The packaging is super simple and sleek which I really like. Nothing too fancy or over the top. This concealer has a dover applicator which holds sooo much product. Honestly, I think I could use one dip over my entire face. I don't wear concealer under my eyes on a daily basis as I don't particularly like wearing too much makeup to school, mainly because I'd rather have an extra 15 minuets in bed!

The consistency is so lovely, really rich and creamy which gives great coverage. It glides on really nicely and covers everything! - I've tried this both under my eyes and on my face to conceal blemishes which it works fab for! I have quite dry eyes so initially I was quite worried that  it would cling to my dry patches and go flakey, although I'm glad it didn't. It lasted all day after setting it with a translucent powder.

This concealer is super lovely and I would recommend it to anyone after a concealer with high coverage. It comes it a variety of different shades, suitable for a lot of skin types and colours. It costs £17.50, fairly reasonable for a high end concealer, especially comparing it to the Nars concealer which costs £5 more.

Hi pals, welcome back to an actual blog post! *cheers* If you know me you'll know I'm not much of a lipstick lover, I really struggle finding colours that I actually like and suit me. However, more recently I've actually starting wearing some more muted nude colours - one fave being MAC 'velvet teddy'.

I've heard so much about Too Faced as a brand and the whole of their chocolate range and I know when I go to New York I'm going to go mad at all the cute packaging and chocolate loveliness. I recently saw a Youtuber wearing one of the melted lipsticks in a video, fell in love with the colour and went straight to my local Debenhams to pick one up. 

Too Faced has recently launched a new selection of melted lipsticks as part of their chocolate range, adding to the eyeshadows and bronzers. I believe there is 4 shades of nude colours featuring a variety of different colours suitable for different skin tones. The packaging like all of the Too faced makeup range is stunning, so cute but doesn't cost you an arm and a leg. I find with brands like Benefit you end up paying so much, mainly to fund the packaging. This lipstick costs £19 which I think is pretty reasonable.

I picked up the shade 'chocolate honey' which is the more neutral brown colour of the four. It's such a lovely colour, almost a lighter version of 'velvet teddy'. What I like about this lipstick other than the chocolate scent which smells like heaven, is the formula. Its so rich, creamy and really glides on to the lips. This has a really long-wearing formula which makes it perfect for everyday wear and nights out. It lasts all day without drying out the lips which I find a common issue with most lipsticks.

Overall, I really love this lipstick and the formula. Its such a pretty colour and really does live up to the long-wear claim. I've even hooked my mum on this, she's wearing it as we speak. I know when I go to New York I'm going to purchase a few more products from this brand! I think the chocolate scent is enough to convince me.

Hi everyone! I can't believe I'm even writing this post right now, it feels so strange! Lets just start with the obvious. I haven't blogged in forever! I stopped writing blog posts because I lost interest, blogging is something I do as a hobby and something I really enjoyed. I only want to put content out that I am completely happy with and worked hard on. That being said, I found myself taking awful photos and lacking any sort of enthusiasm when writing. I knew it was time to take a break!

I've missed blogging so much and I'm so happy to get back to it this year. This year is a big one for me, I'm in my final year of sixth form which means too much stress and too many decisions I don't want to make. This year I also turn 18! How crazy? I'm so lucky that this year I am getting the chance to travel and explore. I'm heading to New York at the end of March for an early birthday treat before my birthday in May. Along with that I'm going to Budapest with my pals, Ive never been before, but I'm super excited -prepare yourself for some travel posts!

I don't really have too much else to say but just wanted to let you know that I'm still alive and plan to get back to creating exciting and interesting content! Thankyou for sticking with me! If you want to keep up to date with whatever I'm up to follow me on Instagram & Twitter.

Hi everyone, hope your all well! I'm so sorry for the lack of posts at the moment. I have no excuse other than school starting again and taking up all of my time! However, I do want to attempt to stay on top of blogging consistently as its one of my favourite things do to! Can you believe that I came back from my holiday over a month ago and I'm only just getting round to posting this outfit post?! 

Anyway, if you've been following my blog for a while you'll know I brought these trousers last year and also featured them in a holiday outfit post. However, I couldn't resist not giving them another mention this year as they are my absolute favourite trousers ever. Its a shame I only ever wear them on holiday, I need to get more use out of them!

This outfit is pretty much the same as last year. However, I changed up my lace bralet for this knitted halter-neck one instead. Its so comfortable and is really flattering. I paired the trousers with the black flip flops which kept this look really simple.

Bralet- Topshop
Trousers- Topshop
Lipstick- MAC 'Ruby woo' (applied the tiniest amount)

Hi everyone, hope you're all well. I officially started year 13 this week. How crazy. I have 1 year of school left and then I'm done -obviously besides uni and work but you know, still cray. I'm not going to lie trying to get out of bed on wednesday morning when I went back to school was difficult. I definitely pressed the snooze button a few too many times.

If you've been a longer follower of my blog you'll know I've worked with a brand previously called 'Salcura'. Salcura skincare is a brand based in the UK and create a variety of different skincare for dry skin problems and acne. They also use all natural ingredients which is a bonus. I had previously tried out the acne range which I loved, so when they contacted me asking if I would like to try out some skincare for dry skin I was super excited. 

The first product I am going to talk about is the 'Bioskin zeoderm face and body lotion*' This was my favourite product that I received. I used this when I came back from my holiday in attempt to keep my skin hydrated and try and prolong my tan. This stuff is fab, its so hydrating. What I like most about it is that it absorbs so quickly into the skin and doesn't leave you feeling sticky. This has a lovely scent, however, it is quite strong and I can't quite think of what it reminds me of. Don't you hate it when that happens? I've been using this on my elbows and knees which get particularly dry and I have noticed a big difference! The skin is much softer, smoother and generally more hydrated and less irritated. 

The next product I'm going to talk about is the 'Bioskin facial cleanser*' Like mentioned above the bioskin range is focused on dry skin types and soothing irritated skin. This sounded great, as although I don't have overly dry skin, it does get dehydrated from all of the spot lotions and creams I use. I have been testing this out for a few weeks now and I do like it when my skin is feeling particularly sore or irritated. This cleanser has a gel consistency which applies nicely onto the skin. The colour of this is a bright orange colour which I was surprised to find out, I wasn't expecting it! The scent is really nice and for some reason reminds me of mangos? Overall this is a lovely cleanser, however, I don't think I would use it everyday. I know it will be more suitable for  my skin type in the colder months as it will really work to soothe the skin form the harsh wind and cold weather. 

The last product is the 'Bioskin DermaSpray*' This spray is used to moisturise, hydrate and reduce skin redness. The purpose behind this is that you spray it onto your body and then massage it into the skin. I really like the concept of this product and the fact you can spray it onto your body -perfect for awkward areas like your elbows or shoulders. This product is a lot lighter in consistency compared to the face and body lotion but does a great job at soothing dry skin and keeping it hydrated. I think this is perfect for travelling and will definitely come in handy!

Hi everyone, hope you're all well! I can't believe I only have a few days of my holiday left and then I start school again next week - It's gone way to quickly! I'm not going to lie my holiday outfit series hasn't been very successful, either I've forgotten to take pictures of my outfits or the photos taken haven't been very good. This being said I'm still going to try and take some photos these last few days of my holiday and see what I can do and if I can salvage any of the others. 

I recently brought this black midi dress which I am wearing from H&M. I haven't really been keen on body con dresses because I personally find them really unflattering on myself, either being way to tight for my liking or too long. However this midi seemed to fit perfectly. Because this style of the dress is a midi length I couldn't really go wrong with it being too long. The material is a t-shirt cotton type of material, therefore, is really comfortable and flattering. 

Dress - H&M
Shoes -  (not shown) Havaianas
Rings - Pandora
Bracelet - Pandora
Lipstick - Mixture of MAC 'Russian Red' + 'Ruby Woo'

I chose to pair this dress with some plain black flip flops, keeping the outfit super comfy and casual. However, this could also easily be styled more dressy and put together by adding some heels. It's so versatile and I know I will get a lot of wear out of this dress when I get back home!

Thank you for reading my blog, be sure to follow! What do you think of this style dress?
