So I haven't updated in a while, sorry about that but a lot has changed recently and it's been strange. Me and Tom broke up which is a big change (we were together for nearly two and a half years :O) but we're ok, we're staying friends and it works better that way. Christmas is also very busy and I meant to do an update on Christmas eve but I had the neighbour's dogs to look after and my sister came down with her cat (flash) and now whenever I go to take pictures or update I find I have flash sat on me.

But I'm doing great actually, everything's new and free and different which is scary as f*ck but it's cool, time to do something new. Anyway I got very spoiled at christmas and got some cash to splash on some clothes (my missguided stuff should arrive tomorrow woop) and I've decided I want to make my own accessories and stuff so I have plenty to be getting on with. But I've been sleeping a lot because I can and I like sleeping.
Enough of me, onto the outfit.


Choker - Twirly Trinkets// Jumper - Sparkle & Fade @ Urban Outfitters//  Skirt - Charity Shop// Tights - YesStyle// Socks and Shoes - Topshop//

I took these, like my last outfit pictures, myself and I'm not sure I like doing that much. I get some alright photos (though it was windy as heck today so I barely go any) and I can experiment but I just feel so awkward. Today some guy was watching me out of his window so I had to leave, he was creepy. It's just really awkward. But then again I don't exactly blend into the background.
Oh and if you were thinking of buying a choker from Twirly Trinkets then I have a review here.

The title is From Daughter's song "run" I've been listening to them non stop since the last week of school and I had something else to say but I can't remember what...

Thanks for reading and stuff, I'll try and update more often in the new year, got a review planned and some photos I can post. Plus lots of clothes to make new outfits with! Until next time :D

I think we should run, run, run

If any of you guys follow my instagram you would've seen I said I was going christmas shopping, but I had a bit of a stress out and decided that was a bad idea and so ordered some off amazon instead (and only one is probably going to be late but Tom can wait for one of his gifts). But I thought I'd do something productive with my day (as well as going to Ikea and not getting what I needed as it was sold out) so I went to go take some pictures, I mean I'd gotten ready to do something.

I took them myself and it's the first time I've done that, think they went quite well though. It was very eerie today though, it was windy and very very quiet and a bit creepy. I didn't stay out taking photos for long though because I got the creeps a bit :L. 

Trying to incorporate all the music I can into this post, the title is from Temple of Love by The Sisters Of Mercy. The 8 minute extended edition is perfect. 

But enough of me blabbing, on with the show.

I really like how these turned out, very eerie, kind of horror movie ish. That's how I felt taking them though, today has been interesting. I'm gonna do a review on the lipstick I'm wearing in these photos soon because I love it but not before I post some photos from winter wonderland (thought there won't be many because it rained...).

Hope you liked this post because I did enjoy taking them, I'll take some more of my own photos next time.

So New Look were holding a Christmas Red Carpet Competition and I just had to join it. Ariana Grande is just too cute, her musics isn't really that much my think but she always looks super adorable and she has the cutest style! My favourite of her looks is one from Kiss FMs Jingle Bell Ball. Her outfit was simple yet super super cute and I'd wear it in a heartbeat.

But for this competition I chose  this cute lace dress look, as it is an ultra simple look, very in and I found some pieces from New Look that would go perfect with her look!

Super cute right? I thought the hair slides were something she'd wear so I added them in. Plus I love the chunky heel with the subtle metal on. 

Hope you enjoyed this post, I liked making it so I might do more like these in the future. Lemme know what you think. I'm going to winter wonderland tomorrow and plan to take some photos, maybe an outfit shot or too, so I should have a post up sometime soon from there. OH also nearly forgot to mention, I was featured as a guest blogger on Kenielemegumi so check it out, blogged about this year's christmas decorations. Until next time  :)

Celeb Style Stealer with New Look - Ariana Grande

So I haven't done a makeup review in a long while, but I always enjoy doing them so I thought I'd give it another go! Plus I haven't bought a lipstick in a long time, I never though they suited me as when I was little all I had were my Mum's brown shades, and they didn't suite me. But I'm finally on the lipstick bandwagon and happy to be here, now to start my collection...
Stay Pout, get it... haha. Well I liked the pun! It's supposed to be a long lasting lipstick and for it's price of £4.49 it does stay pretty well! You can get it (and all the other colours of Stay Pout) here.
"Stay Pout is the longwear lip colour with stain you need , for hours of kiss proof colour!!"
Well that's what the boots website says about this lipstick it's not that kiss proof (some comes off, some stays) but it does last a while. I accidentally went to bed with it on and it was still on my lips in the morning, not as vibrantly as I had put it on but it was a nice pinky stained colour.
It was a lot sharper than this when I bought it, but Tom decided to put the lid back on it without putting the lipstick back down first -.- but it survived and it's still usable.
It's a really nice dark autumnal shade and it's really my colour, but it's not quite like this when on the lips.
Ta dah! As you can see it's quite a lot redder, and very vibrant. 

Before and after.
Colour 5/5: I really love this colour on me and think it'll probably suit a lot of people, it's a very now colour.
Aplication 4/5: Nice creamy texture but once you miss it's very hard to correct but it is a Long lasting lipstick.
Value for Money 5/5: Only £4.49 for a lipstick like this, I kind of want to buy them all, but I might just uy a few more of these ones...
Stay Power 4.5/5: It lasts a long time, but not vibrantly, it stays more as a stain after a while but I think that adding something over the top the keep it there would work magic.


Overall 4.5/5: great value for money and great colour, but my problem is you can't make a mistake! it just stains your skin and it's really hard to get off, I found using makeup wipes was alright but still not perfect. But I'd deffo recommend this lipstick and this colour!

Hope you found this review helpful, I plan to do more in the future, in the meantime I'm gonna try and grab Lizzie sometime this week to take an outfit picture or two for this week!

This photo is from about a week ago, probably a little longer. I'm procrastinating bit time now with a maths mock tomorrow and a physics one on Thursday... whoops. But I felt the need to post again. My brain was going 'post, post, post, post' and so I had to. I wasn't very happy with the backdrop of these posts so I tried to add textures but I really didn't have the patience for it. They looked alright but then I just thought I'd post them normally edited. Chemistry exam today went alright but I can't say the same for tomorrow and thursday I don't think. Oh well, they're only mocks afterall.

Right, onto what you're here for!



Collar - Topshop// Crop Top - BDG @ Topshop// Skirt - ARK// Socks - Unknown// Coat - Mango// Boots - Primark//

This coat is the nicest thing in the world, it's lined like a duvet and it's so warm and fuzzy. Plus you can take the lining out and wear it in the summer too!
Might use this last photo as my page photo for facebook. Tom was just playing around with the camera but the shot actually turned out really well. Woop de woop.
Aaanyway I should probably get to revising now, hope you're all having a lovely week. Until next time :*
