So when going to London the first thing I thought of was.. What the hell am I going to wear?! I knew I had to dress comfy as we were going to be visiting the zoo and walking round London, the last thing I wanted to go was complain that my feet were hurting or I was too cold. But my mind was thinking fashion so I came out with this outfit above. Frilly sleeves, culottes and my Pat Butcher earrings ensemble. Let me know what you guys think of this combination and if you would wear this!

Pride Edition : Makeup & OOTD

To celebrate this weeks pride event in Newcastle I thought I would share the look I went for and a few insights on how I celebrated pride with my friends.

Unfortunately I was working during the time the pride festival was on the town moor so I missed on that part but that wasn’t stopping me celebrating on the night so as soon as I got home me and one of my housemates began to get ready to make sure we were ready for when everyone else came back. So we begin the glitter journey to how I achieved my makeup pink look. I’m going to insert some close up pictures and after the details of the products I used and links to where I got the glitter from.

OOTD: Simple Night Out 

Sometimes for an night out you just cannot be bothered with all the layers or different elements to an outfit and that’s what I was feeling when I was packing an outfit for a night out at home for a friends birthday.

I ended up choosing this simple poplin white dress with a blue embroidered flowers on the chest paired with a simple pair flatform. I feel like the poplin style of the dress is currently the trend for casual dresses and finding this dress I just knew I had to buy it. I had tried on a few of these types of dresses in Zara but for some reason none of them suited my body type until I found this beauty. Down below is the details of what I’m wearing.

Shoes – Newlook

Rings – H&M

Review: Tarteist Pro Amazonian Clay Palette

I’ve finally got my hands on this gorgeous eyeshadow palette! So HAPPY! Hannah, one of my housemates, had an amazing trip to the Big Apple and I couldn’t help but ask her to get me this palette on her trip. Ever since seeing it released on the Tarte website I knew I had to get my hands on it and now they finally are. But with it being an American brand that was a difficult task as I wasn’t willing to pay shipping tax and no English websites sold it to my knowledge. Down below is my review of each colour with swatches & in another blog post I’ll be looking at the different eye looks that you can do with this palette.

img_2038DSCN2426

Okay to start, the packaging is stunning! The simple black and gold makes it look very sophisticated and a palette you would front face on your makeup stand. It comes with a handy eyeshadow look book which goes through what colours you could use to create some looks.

The first matte row is the perfect combo for a warm natural eye and i am in love with the shade ‘classic’, its the perfect all round lid shade for a base and a bonus is that its creamy and easy to blend. The shade ‘smoked’ is so pigmented however not as creamy as the over shades which made it a little harder to swatch. These colours I can see myself using daily.

DSCN2456

For the second row I think that the shade ‘vintage’ is a perfect lid share again like ‘classic’ its so creamy. The darker shades ‘no filter’ and ‘vamp’, be careful with them in a good way they are extremely pigmented and a little goes along way.

The third row consists of more pinkish tones, ‘chic’ and ‘profesh’ are going to be beautiful together and ‘mod’ will definitely be getting used for a crease colour. I only had a slight problem with ‘drama’ that is was alittle harder to swatch as it was patchy in colour.

The fourth row is perfeccct for a warm toned smokey dark eye night out kind of look, ‘indie’ and ‘bold’ are lovely by themselves and the shade ‘punk’ is the black everyone needs in a palette.

DSCN2452

Regarding the shimmers I was very surprised by these and in really in the best way. The first thing is the what I thought the blue shade ‘trendy’ was but it turns out to be a duo chromed shade was so unusual, I don’t own anything like this shade so I’m looking forward to trying it out. When I first swatched the shades I must admit I wasn’t impressed with how blinding they weren’t but I came back to the palette the next day and tried again and this changed my mind completely. The pictures below show this, maybe I just had to take off the first layer for the colour to come through but now I love these shades on my eye lid and can see myself using them for a long time.

I would 100% recommend this palette to anyone who loves mattes, it doesn’t have the most bright in your face kind of colours but that is what I love about this eyeshadow colour. Has anyone else tried this palette? What did you think of it?

OOTD : Simple & Stylish 

Today’s outfit was something I hadn’t paired together before and I really enjoyed how it came out. Typically my style could be described as simple and plain jane which you’ll probably see with the next outfit blog posts. But sometimes the most simple things look the most well thought out. I try not to think about my body type when styling an outfit, I just go with what I think would be classed as ‘fashionable’ and go from there.

Black Strappy Top – H&M

Grey Tshirt – NewLook

Culottes – H&M

Bershka Buys

I’ve been feeling the need to buy myself a couple new denim jackets for a while now so when payday came around I knew I had no excuse not to anymore. One of my housemates referred me to Bershka for what I wanted as they had ordered from the website before and upon looking at these jackets online I immediately added them into my basket and clicked buy. Thanks to spending over £40 I ended up getting next day delivery so I came home from work with a lovely surprise by one truly.

First of all, I LOVE these two jackets especially the oversized black denim jacket, it was a perfect stable piece to throw on top of any outfit. However by over estimating the size that would fit me it turns out the jacket is one size too large in a M so I will be returning for a S for the perfect fit and I can’t wait for it to arrive to sleep, eat and basically do everything in it.

The lighter blue jacket was slightly too big on the arms (yes just my luck they don’t both fit me) apart from that this more fitted jacket is perfect for the summer, I can see myself wearing a summer dress under this. I will link the place to find the two jackets below.

The Best Burger In Newcastle?

Only just today me and two friends collected some of our final uni results and decided to celebrate with cocktails and burgers.. I mean what better to celebrate right. My friends have never been to Lola Jeans before but I have been once with my mam around October for my birthday and back then the food blew me away and this time did not disappoint either. The cocktails are reasonably priced and seriously delicious, I got the Margarita of the Moment and trusted the bar tender to choose the flavour and I am glad I did. My only criticism is that I wished they did more fruity cocktails because that’s typically what I go for. For the main I went for the James P Sullivan burger which won Newcastle’s Burger of the Year in 2017 which is their third burger to win the award in a row so I was expecting great things. The burger was a high 10/10, mouthwatering and delicious. This for me is the perfect spot for  catch up with friends or a date with a partner, the interior is cosy and the service is with a smile – very recommended.
