Get your glad rags on

Dress:Pull & Bear, Clutch, Kardashian Kollection at Dorothy Perkins, Heels: Topshop, Bracelets: Thomas Sabo 

Apologies before I start writing about this outfit, the images seem to be really poor quality, I did take them using my SLR camera and have edited the images so the lighting looks correct but they seem to look quite grainy and a bit yellow which is strange and something which I cannot change which is annoying! Maybe it is time to invest in some photography lighting.

I absolutely love this dress, I got it just under a year ago for my birthday of my mum, another one of them items I found and told her I wanted or should I say would have liked. I do love a good bodycon dress, however it means that all lumps and bumps you have will be on show, which made me quite wary but I think the thickness of the fabric sucks me in. What is also good about this dress is the black paneling down the side to create an illusion bringing you in at the waist and showing off your curves. 

Put on your favourite heels- you might want to add a splash of colour with yours or keep it simple with a black pair, then add as much or as little jewellery as you wish and a clutch bag. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and have fun whatever you have planned. xx

No.7 Intense Volume Mascara

A few weeks back my trusted mascara had finally run out *sobs* I had been a little lazy as I should have really replaced it a good few weeks before I did as it felt really dry when applying it to my eyelashes. For a good few years I have been swapping and changing the Maybelline Colossal mascaras and the one I had been using recently is the Volum' Express 100% black, I love it so much it makes my lashes look longer than what they actually are, and I can build up the thickness with a lot of layers.

I thought I would test out a new brand and having a No.7 £3 off make up voucher I thought I would try out one of their mascaras, and it came out a little cheaper than the Maybelline one. They had a lot to choose from and I was probably stood around that counter for a good 10 minutes trying to decide, but eventually I picked out the Intense Volume in Black.

Now, I really should give my honest opinion here, it is a good mascara the brush is actually nicely spaced out compared to the Maybelline one which has a lot more bristles making it thicker, this makes my eyelashes a little more spaced out but they do tend to clump a little together. On the plus side it makes them look a lot longer than what they are.

I do feel that I could be a little bit too used to the Maybelline one and the change in them is quite different. For me to use a lot of layers of mascara at once is not quite possible with the No.7 one as it does dry quite quickly, however not everyone will wear so much of it as once so I do think that this mascara will be really good for many people. I am going to persist with it and see how we get on, if anyone else has tried this mascara then I would love to know your thoughts.

Dash of Pink

Blazer: River Island, Top: Next, Jeans: New Look, Shoes: New Look, Necklace: Primark, Bracelet: Pandora, Bag: Kardashia Kollection at Dorothy Perkins

This morning I had to venture across the Pennines back to University after an amazing week. Setting off at 9am to not get back until 12pm is a long journey; a car, two trains and a bus with a suitcase, extremely heavy handbag and another bag is not very fun. I shouldn't really moan it was for a good cause. 

I got changed as soon as I got back to uni as I wanted to freshen up, I have recently become a fan of wearing jeans after years of just living in leggings day after day. These from New Look are a very soft fabric so they are quite stretchy and forgiving after eating a huge meal, they are not quite a jegging but not quite a jean fabric (weird!). They are high wasted which was what made me get them, I am extremely fussy when it comes to low rise trousers/jeans etc I hate them with a passion I just don't feel comfortable wearing them. 

To dress them up a little bit I wore my sparkly white vest top, I love how it is quite baggy, it's just so comfortable. I teamed this with the most gorgeous pink blazer I picked up in the sales over the Summer, it is so pretty and girly and just perfect! I wore my gold necklace too as I felt the outfit looked a little bit bare around the top area otherwise.
