Step Out From The Crowd

Dress: Ribbon at Bank, Clutch: Accessorize, Boots: New Look, Ring: Primark, Bracelets: Pandora & Thomas Sabo

This dress is what I picked up in the January sales. I have not actually had a night out to wear it yet but thought it would be really fun to do it as an outfit post for you all, its so comfy and made me want to go out partying.

I don't own any swing dresses in my wardrobe, probably because I feel they are unflattering for me, making me look bigger as it just drops down, there is no shape to it at all. I bought it in a bigger size so that it is a more oversized dress and floats a little better. Perfect for when you feel a little bloated from the amount of food you have consumed in the day and the amount of alcohol in there. 

Normally when picking dresses I tend to stick with greys and blacks for a night out - very dull and boring. But it was the colours which caught my eye, it just seemed very different than what I have seen in all the shops, I'm always embarrassed when I go out and see someone in the same dress as me, it has happened before and it was not fun. 

I wore my chunky ankle boots, which would look lovely with the little ankle socks with the frill just poking above the boot. I am not one for over accessorizing (which is strange for the amount of jewellery I own)I just put on my Thomas Sabo and Pandora bracelets and a flowery ring.

It would look perfect if you curl your hair and do a smokey eye look and you are good to go :) Hope this is helpful if your stuck on an outfit for your nights out. Enjoy your weekend xx

Mac Magnetic Nudes - Fairly Precious

Another product to add to my ever growing collection of Mac cosmetics, doesn't it just look so pretty? The pattern is far too nice to get my blusher brush on and ruin it. 

I am a very lucky girl to have my boyfriend buy me this after he won a bet the other day, and he took me shopping again! He must be the only guy who enjoys going shopping and will pick out pieces for me.

I originally went to the Mac counter in Selfridges to look at the Mineralise Skinfinish section as I had previously seen a really lovely range of quite deep pink tones swirled into one another creating a beautiful shimmering blusher (I didn't even take down the name), unfortunately the staff said it was either their Christmas stock or limited edition *sad face*. I wanted to try and find a very similar product rather than go for a matte base which is my preferred choice.

My eyes were suddenly drawn to a new collection which has just been brought out called the Magnetic Nudes, and what better products to use to brighten up a dull winters day with all the glimmering metallics and nude colours. They are just so pretty *heart eye'd emoji*. I picked up the Extra Dimension Skinfinish highlighter in Fairly Precious, the metallic copper colour is perfect for my skin tone, it is just so neutral and warm. Even though it is a highlighter if your fair skinned like me then you can build up the colour to make it a bronzer which I have done and it really does work well and look so pretty. 

I am a little baffled as to why the description of this product is a liquid-powder highlighter, I'm not quite sure where the liquid part comes into it but you cannot really complain about that as the product is amazing.

The collection includes; eye shadows, lipsticks, lip glosses and blushes. This highlighter was £22 which I don't feel is too bad for a product from Mac, it is a fairly decent size. Has anyone else tried this Magnetic Nudes and fallen straight in love with it? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Night of Pampering

Sorry for the lateness of this post *slaps the back of my hand* I have had a full day of lectures and then caught a train home for a few days which will be really nice and a much deserved break. 

Last night I decided to have a little pamper session by myself, it was the first night I had to actually relax in a while and I felt my face needed some TLC after the amount of make up I have piled on it over the past month. It had become really dry and damaged so a face mask and lots of night cream was in mind. I picked up a couple of these mud masks from the supermarket the other day, they are so cheap which is amazing, I think I paid around £1 for them - perfect if you are on a budget like me at the minute. It really is so good at how quick the masks work, and I want to try and keep on top of doing face masks regularly.

What a better way to accompany a face mask with drinking wine, eating a cupcake with candles lit around, giving a peaceful and calming atmosphere.

Printed but Simple

Coat: Topshop, Top: Peacocks, Jeans: New Look, Boots: Uggs, Bag: Accessorize, Bracelet: Pandora

Wow the lighting in my images is really poor today and I have no idea why, it doesn't look like this on my iPhoto, weird! 

So today I have kept it really casual and comfy as I have been sat at my desk doing my dissertation. Shock! I love this top so much, it has been sat in my drawer for a couple of years because I wasn't quite sure what to think of it but I cannot stop wearing it at the minute. It's so baggy so perfect for when you are suffering a bloated day.

I went to the gym this morning for the first time in 2014, I actually love going to the gym it makes me feel all refreshed afterwards that is. It really does wonders doing a workout I feel so bright and refreshed for a couple of hours and it makes me feel so much happier. 

I am thinking about doing a post on gym wear and giving some advice on how easy it is to stay healthy. 

The Sunday Post

Evening everybody :) another week has been and gone and what a busy one I have had at that; writing my dissertation, planning other essays along with working at the uni bar and doing my blog posts which is the highlight of my days. 

Today has been quite chilled with sorting my uni room out and then going to the Trafford Centre with my boyfriend for a nosy around the shops. For a Sunday it wasn't as busy as what I thought it was going to be, but I spent most of my time going around the sports shops in search for Nike Free run trainers, not that I was actually going to buy any. I did pick up a couple of bits for the gym from h&m, they do quite a good sports section at cheap prices, also a few things from Boots and Superdrug after I noticed that a lot of my make up products had practically run out. Why do they all run out at once?! 

There may have also been a little purchase at the Mac section of Sefridges from my boyfriend which was lovely. Keep your eyes peeled later this week to see what I got.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend xx
