DSC_0168.JPGTis’ the season for swapping out the pinker shades and replacing them with some warm reds and deep berry tones. I’ve recently discovered a serious lack of these ‘wintery’ shades in my makeup collection and decided it’s about time that I invested in a few.  dsc_0235My first discovery was a Rimmel London lipstick from the Kate Moss 15th anniversary Range. Initially this caught my eye due to its beautiful rose gold packaging that I must admit I absolutely LOVE. This lipstick glides straight onto your lips making it so easy to apply which is so great for those times where you’re rushing out the door and don’t have time to faff over your lippy making sure it’s perfect. The shade I’ve gone for is no.53 ‘Retro Red’ and it’s this lovely vintage shade with a slight purple tone. The colour really makes your lips pop and compliments my pale completion perfectly.dsc_0248When I finished work the other day I was passing by MAC so I thought I would go in and see if I could find any lipsticks that tickled my fancy… I ended up finding about six lipsticks that I was IN LOVE with but managed to restrict my self and walk out with just two. The first being ‘Spice It Up’, a shade I would consider more of a  pinky, berry red rather than a deep red. Again, this lipstick just glides over your lips and leaves a lovely glossy (but not too shiny) finish. dsc_0239Last but not least I have ‘Diva’. This is definitely a lipstick that I naturally wouldn’t go for but I thought it was about time I stepped outside of my comfort zone and tried something new. It’s a very deep, berry red that is sooooooooooooo pigmented and admittedly quite hard to apply without extreme caution as it gets everywhereeeee. The plus side of this is that if you do manage to get in on perfectly without smudging it, it can last ages on your lips without you having to top it up throughout the day (or night). I’ve had to ease myself into this one, wearing it around the house a couple of times and I have to say I’m really starting to dig it. It contrasts really well with my blue eyes and once again, compliments my pale complexion – win win!

UPDATE: Youtube Channel

Hellooooooo there, just a quick one tonight…

I’ve decided I’m going to start uploading content onto YouTube as well as on here. Next year I’ll be studying journalism at university and I was thinking if I can’t put myself out there then how am I supposed to compete? Not just this but I actually really enjoy filming and editing so I hope you enjoy the videos I produce!

My first video is now live and it’s a sort of montage of footage from Ruben and I’s walk around Thorpe Marshes. – check it out 🙂

OOTD: 10/12/2016

dsc_0137I’m a massive fan of the jumper and jumpsuit combo at the moment and this has very quickly become my go-to outfit. Whether I’m out in the city shopping with friends or going on a lunch date with Ruben I can guarantee this is what I’ll be wearing. DSC_0201.jpgToday the jumper I’ve paired with my trusty Newlook jumpsuit is from Zara (what a surprise). The monochrome colour scheme of this outfit I think make it seem a lot more sophisticated and classy, I feel like it almost gives the outfit a more “dressed-up” feel.dsc_0160Obviously, I couldn’t not wear my BEAUTIFUL bomber jacket that I got in New York with this outfit. This jacket is probably my favourite purchase I made in NYC and I have discovered a very strong love for American Eagle. I am obsessed the embroidery on the jacket, I have always shied away from bomber jackets as I though they looked to manly on me but I feel like the embroidery gives it a really feminine touch.dsc_0156Over the last few months I’ve also been really into layering necklaces. The heart and stone ones are from Topshop and the flower/wing one is Pandora. My ring was a gift from Ruben that he got in London, I really like the swirly design of it I think it’s really cool and unique.dsc_0242Jade x
