So today is just a simple post of a few hair tutorials that I have done on my YouTube channel. All ranging in difficulty and style. These are all the ones when I had very long hair that you may have not seen before…
And to round of this post if you haven’t already seen me cut my hair off so I can donate it to The Little Princess Trust for a child with cancer in need of a wig.
So I was having a play around with layering the shades from the Urban Decay Ammo palette. I really love the green but it is just too dark on its own as a lid colour. So I mixed it with the blue shade to create a new shade that is light but still has that earthy green shade.
I used the purple as a contrast to the other shades as it makes the look come to life a bit more with that kick of bright colour. I used a dark purple eyeliner from Bourjois to make the light purple shade of grifter really stand out.
This week I have been loving autumn colours. Starting off with a purple lipstick from Revlon that is so wearable and fun! I have been having a play around with blush and combining different shades to make the perfect colour; the Makeup Revolution ‘Sugar and Spice’ palette is perfect for that.
I have fallen back in love with the Urban Decay Naked 1 palette as it has such a versatile set of colours and is perfect for Autumn.
Also trying to cut down on foundation so I have been using a BB cream from Rimmel as it has great coverage and helps your skin keep hydrated as it is so cold; and I use the stay matte powder to set everything in place.
My floordrobe wasn’t working for me so spent the morning organising my wardrobe from party dresses to day dresses, trousers, skirts, cardigans, jumpers then shirts and extra hangers! Nice and organised now!
Some of my favourite treatments for spots, acne or oily skin. I said at the start but these are the products that work for my skin so don’t be expecting to find the perfect product here.
All skin is different and spots and acne products work dramatically different from person to person.
This week has been wet and windy so I needed makeup that will last. The @maccosmetics and @lorealparisuk base is too dark so I use @thebodyshopuk to match the perfect shade. The most long wearing mascara ever is @maxfactor; you maybe soaking wet but mascara still in tack. Loving @barrymcosmetics varnish in ‘Lap of honour’. @bourjois_uk rouge velvet lasts all day, is matte and doesn’t dry your lips out! #bblogger
I am going to start a new series of fashion collages around a subject and a particular brand and really dive in to the different pieces that a store is making. So I am going to start with my favourite brand: New Look.
This collage is all about the different part wear pieces that I would buy in preparation for the party season. So to start off with the dresses I have chosen. The white dress with black lace and the blue dress would both be perfect for a formal Christmas event or a wedding. They are both classic and very elegant.
The gold dress I would wear for a night out or for New Years as it is very comfy as it is a bodycon dress but looks very elegant. The purple dress I would wear for a work party or dinner out with some friends.
The purple top I would wear with some skinny jeans and this would be for a day party or going shopping for Christmas things.
The accessories that I have chosen is the dark blue box clutch that would go with all pieces here. The shoes I have chosen are first the gold shoes that would bring an extra bit of glamour to any outfit. And then the black bow court shoes as it is a modern and young twist on a classic.
That’s it for this little selection. Hope you guys liked it.

So it is coming close to winter now… or at least it feels like it so I decided to do a frosty look today using the NXY glitter in Crystal.
Without the glitter this is a great look to wear for everyday or for a party.
Also cold has gone down a bit so I might be back in the swing of things after that two week illness.
