My Everyday Beauty Look

*Major Cringe alert at the images*

I thought I would share with you my everyday beauty look, it is very natural and only take me around 10 minutes to create. When it comes to getting ready every morning for work, I don;t want to be spending a lot of time in front of the mirror creating different looks or using a ton of products, I'd rather allow myself that extra half hour in bed. Lets face it I'm only going to be sat at my desk staring at my laptop for eight hours straight and drinking an awful lot of tea.

If my schedule is slightly more exciting and have any interviews or meetings penciled in, then I tend to spend a little more time applying my make up and adding a couple more steps to the routine; eyeliner and bronzer for a more defined look. 

Products Used: 

Primer - Kiko City Filter Primer 
Foundation - Kiko Unlimited Foundation in Warm Rose 30
Concealer - Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Shade 1 Fair 
Powder - Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Warm Beige 
Bronzer - Benefit Hoola 
Blusher - Benefit Rockateur 
Mascara - Soap & Glory Thick and Fast HD Mascara 
Eyeliner - W7 Liquid Eyeliner

I hope you like this post, it is a little bit different from me, maybe I will be brave enough to create a few more this year. I'd love to hear what products you use in your everyday look.

What I got in the Sales 2016

I'm not normally the one to find myself a good bargain in the Boxing Day sales, so fast forward three days after the 26th December, I certainly could not be in look of getting myself a sale find. But how wrong was I, a quick afternoon trip to Leeds City Centre and all my Christmas money had been spent, - within an hour as well.


River Island was the place to go for me, I picked up this beautiful sleeveless sheer monochrome shirt with slits in down each side, the print is absolutely gorgeous and is an ombré effect. As it had slits on either side it meant that I could size down, I believe it was around the £12 mark.

The other item I got was this khaki green shirt dress which is perfect to wear for work as it is a mix between smart and casual. I once again had to size down as it was enormous, so I bought it in a size 10. The tie around the waist is perfect to cinch you in at the waist to accentuate curves, however the more you wear it the baggier it does goes - but hey the comfier it gets. 


I was a little disappointed with the sale in Next this year, there didn't seem to be as much on the rails, however this could be down to the fact that the sales started a few days before Christmas. I cannot complain as I picked up three pretty amazing products, the first being these black chunky heeled ankle boots - and yes I do have an obsession! Stepping into the shoe lounge it was as though there was a light shining down on them, they were in my exact size so it was meant to be!

If you know me well you know that my next purchase is something that excites me a lot, hello to a brand new pair of sunglasses to add to my collection. Every girl needs to purchase a new pair to mark a new year, they were only a fiver too so I had to grab them.

Whilst we were queuing to pay I turned out to be one of them people sucked in with the products they put at the side of the queues, but when it turns out to be the cutest pink confetti nail polish priced at £2.50 in the sale, you really cannot say no.
