Hi everyone!

So today I'm giving you a peep of my latest haul! - Make up haul of course! I believe in the saying "We can never have too much make up!"
Who agrees!? ;)

So the first thing I headed to while in the shopping centre, Medowhall, was the Chanel counter! I've always wanted to try a Chanel foundation, and I remember when I was a young teen, my grandma gave me lots of samples of Chanel's foundations, and ever since then I have had my eye on trying them! The foundation I got was Perfection Lumiere Long-wear flawless fluid make up with SPF 10. I was matched to the colour, Beige, which is number 30. I have combination skin, so a long wearing fluid will suit my skin best, it apprently has particles of powder inside, and gives a semi matte finish. I wanted to keep the colour true to my skin tone, as I can build up bronzer for a more golden colour! I will be doing a review on this foundation when I have finished my MAC studio fix fluid!

The next thing I got was the Soleil tan de Chanel, which is a sheer illuminating fluid. I swatched it when I was at a Chanel counter in Leeds, and thought it was just stunning! It will certainly compliment a tan on your face, and add that extra glow. You can use it in so many ways: as a highlighter on the cheeks, as a base, or a mixer in your foundation to add a bronze glow! Very happy with my purchases, I just need the sunny weather to come, so I can enjoy them!

This photo is rubbish! Never mind, I think us beauty lovers will easily be able to pick out what I've brought ;)
Two more MAC lipsticks, (I currently have 25! Is that bad!?) and the MAC mineralised finish in soft and gentle.
The MAC lipsticks I got were, CB96, what a random name to call a lipstick! But I currently have been lusting over orange toned lipsticks and I spotted this one amongst all the other Mac lipsticks, tried it on and loved it! It is a Frost finish and is a very metallic orange/bronze lipstick, and willmake gals with blue eyes, pop! I certainly haven't seen a lipstick like it before! The next lipstick I got was crosswires. It is a pinky/orangeish coral. It is so easy to wear, and I was after a new pink lipstick for spring that I could just wack on (which is possible as it is a cremesheen formula!!) This colour is perfect for me! Next up, is soft and gentle highlighter, which is just beautiful on the skin! It has quite a chunky texture, but does not look it when blended on the skin. It is a very glossy, light catching highlighter that is very universal! Every highlighter addict should
own it!!

This photo does not give the lipstick colours any justice! They are much prettier than this, promise!

Soft and gentle highlighter on my finger!
This gorgeous lipstick was purchased when my bestie, see her blog here! Told me about an offer on On groupon, I could purchase a £25 voucher for £15, so I went for it and brought it, and new exactly what I had in mine to buy, a YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick! After spending ages looking upon swatches on google images and pinterest, I decide to go ahead and buy Rose Asarine, which is a gorgeous fuchsia/reddy toned lipstick. It glides on the lips so amazingly smooth, no tugging at all, it is literally a dream to apply! Also, with one swipe, the swipe on your lips will be fully pigmented! The best part is, that is smells of mangos, hmm! I was so pleased I got it for the price I did, but truthfully? I would go pay full price for another!
I forgot to mention, when I was shopping at the Chanel counter, the lady kindly gave me this sample of the new Coco Rouge's that will be coming out very soon! I cannot wait to get my mutts on a Chanel lipstick!

I hope you enjoyed my long longgggg post on make up, ha! I am a true make up addict!
Leave a message below, I want to check out some new blogs to follow! :)

Summer beauty!

Hey everyone! So this post is basically the second half of my last post, summer dreaming! I wanted to keep the clothes and beauty in separate posts!
So this post is very Chanel based, basically because they have everything I want for a summer face, and a summer fragrance!

I was thankful to receive this from my boyfriend at Christmas - Coco Mademoiselle is my ulta favorite perfume, ever! It's so sweet and
feminine! I think I will only use this bottle for nights out, meals out, etc rather than everyday wear, it's too nice to waste! If you
haven't smelt this scent before, get to the Chanel counter and spray! :) I will open it when I've ran out of my Alien perfume..

I brought this Chanel bronzer last month with my Christmas money I received. As I work in Debenhams, I receive staff discount of 20%,
which is really bad for me as it makes me want to go spend, spend, spend at the beauty counters, eeek!
Moving onto the bronzer, I am so so happy I got it. I plan on using it to give me more of a bronze look on my face when summer comes
as I am naturally so pale! As you can see I have already being playing about with it! The colour is a gorgeous brown that you can easily
build up in colour. As I am so so pale at the moment, I have being using it to contour with my Real Techniques Face Expert brush, to fit in
the contours of my face! The result when using this bronzer is so natural, it's literally looks like you are not wearing anything on your
face. If you like your bronzer to be natural, buildable, and easy to apply (and one that will last forever!) this is the perfect bronzer! :)

Thanks for reading! :) While your here, go check out my friend's blog who I will be collaborating with (a lot!She's my partner in crime in
the blogging world! And amazing at doing make-up!) And she is called, Steph! Go show her some love on her new blog at:

Enjoy! My next post will be a make-up haul, which again is summer inspired! I love to buy new make up for the new seasons haha! :) The haul
will include more Chanel products, Mac and YSL! :)

Summer dreaming..

Hey everyone! Well, this is my first blog post in agessss!! As you may know from my last quick post, I am beginning to bog again - YAY!

I have been dreaming of summer as I currently full of cold, and always feeling the cold! I enjoy getting wrapped up for winter in big, chunky knits, but at this time of year I am needing the warm sun, and floral tea dresses!
I have being prepping for the summer by buying the odd thing or two.. ;) I currently have an obsession with flowy, girly midi skirts and culottes. I just think they are so feminine and flowy (I am quite a girly girl, so anything floral, vintage looking and flowy, I want it!).
The one problem I face in summer, is that if it is windy and I am wearing a short swirly skirt or a dress, they tend to rise up with the wind! So I'm hoping by buying culottes and midi length things will stop that from happening, hah! I do think they are flattering pieces to wear though!

Anyhoo, here are some clothing I have brought that is waiting to be worn when the sun comes out!

I have a big obsession with floral prints, and when I see gorgeous floral prints on gorgeous fitted dresses, I HAVE to have it!
This dress will be worn a lot by me in summer, I can just see myself in allll the time! I got this dress on ebay, I think I searched
floral tea dresses, or 50's dresses. Isn't it gorgeous!?

These culottes are so bright and flowy and just perfection! I got them in the New Look sale for around £8! Even better!
Again, my love for florals show!

I have grown a love of monochrome this winter, when before I was all about colour! I love black and white together, and when they
are in a print, it's even better! I feel like monochrome is so classy, and my red lipstick stands out against the black and white!
(One thing you will have to learn about me, is that I LOVE a good red lip!)Again,these are from New Look, at £22.99!

This gorgeous midi skirt was around £11 from ebay,(again!) The label it came with was asos, but the skirt is River Island's.
Again, I am a sucker for a polka dot print, and fits with the monochrome look I love, apart from the white looking more cream, I think
the skirt looks so feminine, and I just want to wear it now! Not sure it would be a good look with my big thick, black tights I have been
wearing all winter! Hah!

I got these brogue shoes very recently in TU, Sainsburys. You seriously cannot go wrong with some of the supermarket's own
clothing brand, I sometimes think they are even better than Primark! I got these shoes for around £12 as there was 25% off, and my mum
dragged me to look around, and I spotted these! I love the contrast of colours and the front of the shoe. They will look fab with a
pair of jeans or even a nice dress. When I get out of my boots, these will be first on my feet!

Well, I hope you have enjoyed my first blog post in ages! More is yet to come! Let me know what you think in the comments below, and please leave a link to your blog as I have to start and visit new blogs now I am back on the blogsphere! Thank you for reading :)

I'm a-coming baaack!

Well hello!
It has being a long while since I blogged often, but my I have missed it!
I have decided to begin my blog again with a more variety of posts rather than just outfit posts. I have crazily gained an obsession with beauty so a lot of discussion about make up will be happening here! Please do not forget clothes, I still buy new clothes allllll the time...

I'm very excited for this blogging to happen again! There might even be a thought of youtube videos on the way in collab with a friend of mine, who is currently setting up her blog, so watch this space for the link!

The first thing I need to do is bring out my camera and start snapping away again! Oh, and my blog will be adjusting over time, so expect some new things here and there!

Woop woop, let the blogging commence! :)
