TRIP TO BRICK LANE

dress (worn as top): zara
skirt: primark (similar)
shoes: converse
lipstick: MAC ruby woo

The other day I visited Brick Lane in the hopes of exploring more of London and having a look at the street art there. This Summer I am definitely going to make more of an effort to visit more of London and to go to different places each time I go. Whenever I go to London I always end up in the same places (Oxford Street and Westfield Stratford I'm looking at you), they are all well and good and definitely satisfy my need to spend but there are so many more places in London that I haven't explored. Hopefully this summer I can. The street art in Brick Lane was amazing, I walked around the streets and couldn't help but stop and snap, including a few outfit shots (apparently there was something really interesting on the floor when these pictures were being taken ahha).

MINI AMERICAN BEAUTY HAUL


Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream/ SMLC08- San Paulo San Paulo & SMLC07- Addis Ababa
Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer
MAC Lipsticks/ Ruby Woo (Retro Matte) & Girl About Town (Amplified)
Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil/ 617- Iced Mocha

So I've come back with a mini beauty haul with some things I managed to acquire from across the pond. As well as the mini haul I've had a mini leave of absence (sorry!), mainly because I went to Zante for a week with the girls. It was a very urmmm, interesting experience and to be honest even though my body clock is extremely messed up and I came back with the worst cough ever I really do wish I was back there, counting down to #NAPA2015 already, and it's not even booked ahha. So after a few days of a well deserved recovery I thought I'd show you some of the products that were waiting for me on my pillow when I got back from Zante much to my surprise and admittedly did help rid some of my holiday blues.

I've been wanting some of these products for ages, especially as a few of them are harder to get in the UK than brands like MAC. I can't wait to properly try the Soft Matte Lip Creams, I've swatched them and they smell sooooo good (somewhat chocolatey) although you don't buy lip products for their smell that must be a good sign right?! Secondly is the Smashbox Primer, now to be honest when it comes to primers I had kind of given up before even trying, I couldn't bring myself to invest in a product that I wasn't 100% sure would make a difference and was probably to lazy to use. With this being $36 I'm glad it was a gift so I can actually give it a go and see whether it increases the longevity of my make-up, because I wouldn't have paid that much. Next up are two MAC lipsticks Girl About Town a lovely bright pink with an Amplified finish and the matte Ruby Woo. I do feel slightly ashamed that I blog and I didn't previously own Ruby Woo, better late than never eh? Last but not least (this phrase should be banned but I will use it regardless) is the Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil, I cannot wait to try these out and cannot believe I am just trying one, hopefully I will be snapping up a lot more colours in the near future!

Have you tried any of these products or are you lusting over any products from America, let me know below and make sure to follow

'THERE'S A HOLE IN YOUR JEANS'

jeans: topshop
top: primark (similar)
fur coat: internacionale
clutch: topshop
watch: dkny
heels: new look (simlar)

Hooray! I FINALLY got myself some ripped jeans! The bandwagon has been patiently waiting for the past few weeks for me jump on it and jump on it I did. I believe the phrase 'go hard or go home' is appropriate considering they do a gaping hole in my jeans, but I just love the look. These jeans are the Topshop Hayden's and I did do a bit of snipping and chopping here and there as they came with patches which I later removed. I love the baggy fit of them and I actually sized up but regardless they have a boyfriend fit and are a lot more low-waisted than many other Topshop jeans. 
Ripped jeans: hit or miss? Let me know in the comments below, thanks for reading and make sure to follow!

DISCO BALL TOP?

top: topshop
skirt: h&m
choker: made by my ten year old sister
scrunchie: primark

I have never done an OOTN but I thought I'd share what I wore last night. Unfortunately I do not have a full length picture as doing an outfit post was an after thought but I paired these with my trusted black wedges, they are literally THE comfiest shoes ever. I bought this top in the Boxing Day sales for 2012 NYE and sold it shortly after on eBay which I regretted ALOT. But the other month I stumbled upon it on eBay and knew I had to buy it back! This top can make any outfit look like you've put in way more effort than you actually have. I am also happy that I managed to grab this skirt in the H&M sale the other day for only £3, bargain or what?!
Hope everyone had a good weekend and make sure to follow!

SMART LEVI'S

shirt: topshop
shorts: levi's (similar)
jacket: topshop
sandals: primark (similar)

Recently I have been attending a lot of university open days, Leeds and Birmingham being a couple of the Uni's I have visited and this was one of the outfits I wore to an open day. I definitely didn't want to melt as it was extremely hot that day but I didn't want to dress too casually so I found a happy medium. This jacket was one of my amazing eBay finds and I member winning the bid at some ridiculous price less than £5. I'm extremely happy that I can actually whack out the levi's and put the 120 denier tight aside as summer is actually here!

THE £7 BIKINI


bikini, sunglasses & scrunchie: all primark


First of all, yes, yes the title is right. 
Seven.
Pounds.

It was almost too good to be true with the top being £4 and the bottoms being £3, but Primark never fail to surprise me nowadays. With Summer being almost here and my holiday to Zante looming I am always on the lookout for items to take with me and the more affordable the better! I don't know how I'm even going to keep to the 15kg weight restriction but that's a story for another post ahha. 

The bikini top has removable straps so can transform from a bandeau to halter in seconds. The bottoms have a criss cross side and the cut of them is slightly higher than most bottoms, making them uber flattering. I will probably be sporting them with the white sunglasses and the pink scrunchie which are also both from Primark. But this little number has definitely got me hyped for Zante and summer in general!

Thanks for reading! Are you going away to anywhere nice this summer or have you nagged up any major bargains? Let me know below and make sure to follow!

WHITE JONI JEANS






top: new look (old)/ jeans: topshop/ scrunchie: primark/ shoes: converse

White jeans have been on my to buy list for the longest time, white joni jeans to be specific, being in the process of attempting to make my wardrobe more summer appropriate I thought that white jeans were a must and I just love the fit of joni jeans. I've had this crop top since last summer and fortunately florals are still in this year and the pink scrunchie definitely gives it that irresistable primary school vibe ...

Hope you guys have have a good weekend and make the most of the longest day of the year (tomorrow), I'm off to some uni open days so hopefully that will be interesting, make sure to follow on Bloglovin!
