Wishlist: Topshop Whites


Topshop are on point for me at the moment, I am seriously lusting after so many items ready for the Summer. This season I'm all about simple style full of nudes and white clothing. I adore this Longline Duster Coat, its so effortless but would make any outfit. I fell in love with these Zip Up Leather Wedges as soon as I saw them, they would look amazing paired with jeans. This Lace Bralet is so pretty, perfect for Summer! Another lace item is this Cut Out Rose Skirt, the hem detail just makes it for me. Tophop Jamie jeans are my favourite for fit, these White Ripped Jeans would be ideal for the warmer months. Lastly is this White Clutch, it would go well with pretty much every outfit. 

Whats on your wishlist at the moment? Let me know in the comments!

OOTD: Ripped Jeans & Tee


 This is probably the most simple outfit of the day post I've ever done but its one of my favourites. I'm all about jeans and a tee at the moment. I've picked up two pairs of ripped jeans recently, this Zara pair and the newest addition are from Topshop which you will see soon. The white tee is Topshop and I'm definitely going to stock up on a few more, the shoes are also Topshop. The bag is from Oasis - somewhere I don't usually shop but I was pleasantly surprised with this little beauty.

Have a great Bank Holiday weekend everyone!

New In: Topshop

 Whilst popping into Topshop to pay off my balance I may have been naughty and picked up a few things at the same time - how does that work?! Well I saw this Leopard Print Maxi Dress a few days prior and when I saw it was still in stock I had to get it, I will wear it non stop in Summer so I can justify the £50 price tag eek. The White Croc Print Slip Ons I've had my eye on for a while too, I wear my burgundy pair all the time and so this pair will be ideal for the sunnier months. Since taking these photos I have gone back to Topshop and bought yet more things (naughty Lauren, I know!) I'm planning on filming a lookbook video for my channel so keep an eye out for that in the next couple of weeks! In the meantime I did upload a collective haul this past weekend which you can see here.

Have a great week!

Hi everyone, long time no see - it feels that way anyway! Sorry I've been a bit MIA this week, sometimes life can get a bit hectic. The sun was out today so I spent a few hours topping up my tan in the garden, its funny how the weather can change your mood. I went for a nude look today makeup wise, looking at the photos now its a little Kylie Jenner-esque. I repurchased my BareMinerals Powder and I don't know how I lived without it , ha(seriously its amazing). I had a little play around with my new Naked 3 Palette, eek I'm so glad I purchased it! Another one of my current favourite things to use at the moment is the No7 Lip Liner in Nude, it makes my lips look that touch fuller and its the perfect lip combo with Rimmel's Notting Hill Nude Lipstick.

Beauty: Bronzed Orange FOTD



 Makeup Used:
No7 Instant Radiance Highlighter
No7 Superlight Foundation
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
Benefit Erase Paste Concealer
MAC Prep n Prime Highlighter
Seventeen Brow Pencil
ELF Brow Gel
Rimmel ScandelEyes Cream Shadow
Urban Decay Naked Palette - Smog

MAC Morange Lipglass

This week I opted for a bronze eye with a bright lip, last Summer I wore this lipgloss non stop. I'm tempted to buy MAC Morange lipstick soon but for now the lipglass will do. I'm a bit obsessed with a bronze eye at the moment, my favourite eyeshadow to use is Smog from the Urban Decay Naked palette. I actually just ordered the new Naked 3 palette -at last! I'm thinking next weeks face of the day might be a bit more of a smokey eye with a pinky/nude lip.

Before I sign off, I'm on the lookout for a new bronzer - any recommendations would be welcome!!

Lifestyle: Bank Holiday Fun

 I hope you all had an amazing Bank Holiday weekend, back to work already - boo! I had a pretty busy fun filled weekend and so I didn't take too many photos as I was enjoying it so much. On Saturday me and my friend Rosie hopped in her car and made our way to Oxford to visit one of our friends who's currently at Uni there. It was such a sunny day as soon as we arrived we headed out to have some pub lunch - I had a yummy burger and fries (pictured). We got back and dolled ourselves up for the night, one of my friends housemates actually organised an Ann Summers party for a group of us - which was a laugh! Needless to say the next morning was spent chatting about last nights events, eating toast and chocolate (healthy breakfast, right?) and drinking endless amounts of tea. By the afternoon me and Rosie made the 2 hour journey back home to Bournemouth and luckily the sun was still shining, so I spent the rest of the day in the garden followed by watching Homeland! Yesterday I went on a little shopping spree with my Mum, oops (haul to follow soon). To finish off the sunny Bank Holiday weekend was off course by watching the new episode of Game of Thrones!

Hope you enjoyed this type of post! How was your Bank Holiday?

Lifestyle: Morning May

Who can believe its May, already?! Last month I let you all know about my plans for April, which you can read here. I'm really pleased I managed to upload two videos a week on my channel, I hope you guys enjoyed the content if you're a subscriber! This month I'm going to try and focus a little more on my blog and get a few more posts up. Are there any type of posts you would like to see more of?

Another one of my goals last month was to be a little more active and that did happen and I did lose a few more pounds, woo! I still have 5/6 more pounds to lose and to tone up but I'm going to commit myself for the month of May. And yes, I still need to drink more water (oops).

What are some of your goals this month? Have a great bank holiday weekend!

Beauty : Spring FOTD

 Makeup Used:
No7 Superlight Foundation
L'Oreal Lumi Magique Primer
Benefit Erase Paste Concealer
Mac Prep and Prime Highlighter
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer
MAC Mocha Blush
Nars Sin Blush
MAC Pearl Cream Colour Base
Anastasia Brow Wiz
Urban Decay Naked Palette
L'Oreal Superliner
Lancome Hypnose Mascara
MAC Chatterbox Lipstick

As I had such a great response from my first FOTD post, I decided to make this a weekly thing. This weeks look is more radiant than last weeks. I opted for a luminating primer, my favourite being the L'Oreal Lumi Magique Primer followed with my go to cream highlighter - MAC Pearl Cream Colour Base. I decided to go for more of a pink cheek so I layered two of my favourites - MAC Mocha and Nars Sin blush. For eyeshadow, I used my trusty Naked Palette, in particular the shades Buck and Sidecar. Lastly I tied the look together with a gorgeous pink lip colour, I used MAC Chatterbox lipstick. Its an amplified finish so it has great pigmentation whilst being moisturising and long-lasting.

Whats your go to Spring lipstick, I'd love to know!
