hey oh! lets go!

Ok so i've been slacking this last month, but can you blame me? It's summer and i've been super busy. So I'm in desperate need of summer clothes, you may gasp at that but it's being typical british weather. Basically Summer in Britain is wet, cloudy and not that warm with the occasional burst of sun and heat.
Bummer right?
I've decided to bite the bullet and just buy some clothes, i also want some cute clothes for when i visit my cousins in devon, hopefully in two weeks time argh!
On my list is....
♡ Tanks, Tanks, Tanks, whether they are lacy or slogany, i need them!
♡ Tees
♡ Denim Shorts,
♡ Headbands
♡ Oh and jeans, as my ones are too big now YAY!
Don't flame me but i couldn't resist these juicy Shorts and pants for summer. They were in the sale.
ciao for now xxx

Back to school..... Make up

Sorry for the lack of updates, been super busy!
Back to school make up is crucial, light but noticeable is a must or go the opposite end of the spectrum and try funky bright colours. ( Did i just say funky?! eww)
My first piece of advice, which i'm sure you readers are sick of hearing about it and i know my family hate it too; WATER! Lots of it, it ensure your skin is well hydrated meaning clearer and healthier skin and it tastes great too.
There are many different types on the market at the moment which is great compared to 10 years ago. With foundations suited for clear skins or even bad skin and more colour choice, its hard to get it wrong nowadays. During school you will want a foundation that looks natural and just enhance your skin.
Clear-ish skin? Try a tinted moisturiser which will slightly even out your skin tone, personally i like Clinique's almost make up.

Blemishes?: Try a foundation with a medium to sheer coverage, try mac Hyper real or L'oreal's True Match.

Need a Medium to heavy coverage? Lots of blemishes, very uneven skin tone, try mac studio fix which provides a Medium to heavy coverage.

Remember to try them on in real life and in natural daylight as its very hard to get the right colour for your skin

Now onto the fun bit!

Personally for school, i think lipgloss is more suitable, it's fun,flirty and looks great. Lipgloss is essential in my everyday make up and often enough, my mom and i catch each other stealing the other one's lipglosses!

Its much easier to get it right with lipgloss than lipstick, i tend to stick to baby pinks and warmer pinks and tend to steer clear of blue undertone lipgloss. There is an exception to this as i adore MAC's oyster girl.

Top 5 Lipglosses

  • Mac Lipglass - Pink Lemonade
  • Mac Lipglass- Oyster girl
  • Benefit her glossiness- didn't hear it from me
  • Stila Lipglaze - Peppermint
  • Lancome Juicy tube- Fraise

It's all about the eyes
Mascara can really open your eyes and always looks amazing, but of course everyone knows this. I like to use a thin line of liquid eyeliner on my top eyelid and a tiny bit in the bottom outer corner to finish my look.
Eyeshadow is rather tricky as it looks terrible if done wrong, so your best bet is to try different colours, try buying a pre-made pallete such as one of urban decay's so you get a feel of what looks good and what doesn't.

Urban decay's shadow box, 9 eyeshadows for $36! Brilliant and plus they have added a sample of the must have eye primer.

Back to school baby…. Bags

I can already hear my readers groan, but as the summer draws to an end as always. There is always a rush of buying back to school items. Most teens like me, make a goal list for summer, whether its to lose weight or to get a new hair cut, its inevitable that I know you are all thinking about changing something before the holidays end. It’s exciting to start a new school year with new classes, new friends, and, of course, new clothes and makeup! With my simple guide to back to school, you can skip the rush and have inspiration on what to buy. Coming up in the next few weeks

Back to school bags ( this post)

Make up




Bags Carrying a heinous bag to carry around your books is a serious fashion crime. As everyone should know a bag can break or make an outfit. Carrying heavy books can really take a toll on your shoulders or even your back which is why I like messenger or totes as they are cuter, smarter and easier to use than a backpack

I've come up with the perfect and affordable bags for school; check it out.

1st pic – 1.Urban outfitters menswear Pocket tote in blue $30, 2.Target merona faux suede hobo bag in purple $22, 3. Wet seal Star print $19.50, 4. UO deux lux double cross bag $68 2nd Pic, 1. Uo reuse me tote $12, 2.Wet seal Printed canvas tote $14.50,3. Hollister China Cove $44.50, 4. Target Xhilaration Applique Tote bag- Ice cream $9.99, 5. Ralph Lauren Medium tote $115

So there you have it, affordable but fashionable totes which are perfect to carry books and essays and even stationary.

Stay tuned for over the next 2 weeks or so, I'll be covering more back to school...

Glastonbury 2008 and more

So i may be your average girl but, glastonbury just doesnt appeal to me. Mud,tents, porta loos, need i say more.
If you do not know what glastonbury is, it is a big musical festival in the UK, in big huge fields where you stay in tents and it always rains so it is always very muddy and you listen to live music by top singers.
The festival gathers 20 somethings and celebrities from far and wide and with that you do get a few cute outfits. Name: Chloe From: London Wearing: Zara jacket, Uniqlo dress, vintage scarf and shorts, Dunlop boots, Linda Farrow Luxe sunglasses

Name: Anna From: London Wearing: Vintage jacket, Uniqlo tee, Zara shorts, Vagabond boots, Prada glasses Name: Kelly Osbourne From: London Wearing: Luella coat, Topshop dress, Gio Goi glasses

Now onto more.... Didn't Amanda Seyfried look fabulous at the London Premiere of Mama Mia! The jewel tone green looks great on her and would look great on brunettes as well. The Dress is not as flattering as it could be but the shoes make up for that faux pas! The lipstick doesn't really suit her but unlike most startlets in hollywood, she took a chance with her make up.

Leighton Meester is on the cover of Lucky! which is out on July 8th. I wish we had Lucky in the UK as i would buy this as i really like Leighton Meester. I keep wanting to type Blair instead of her name which is rather funny and annoying. Woops!
