NYX soft matte lip cream review



Hello and welcome back to my blog. Today I wanted to share my new favourite lipstick. The best thing about this is that it's cruelty-free. Personally, I think every brand should be cruelty-free. I love this red burgundy colour, it's just gorgeous for winter time to make you feel that little bit glam, while bundled up in thousands of layers.

Nyx is such an amazing brand and such a cheap price! I couldn't believe the prices when I went into my local Boots. This brand to me really rivals many highend brands.

This lipstick drys matte and lasts a very long time; It literally stains your lips. I also pair this lipstick with a lip liner just to make my lips look a little bigger and more defined, but you don't have to it's just personal preference.


So, this is the colour swatched. I just love it, it's so pretty and really suits my make up look. I pair this with a brown smokey eye a bit of blusher and highligther!

What do you think to this lipstick? Let me know in the comments

Until next time,

hair trends: pastel lovin'

Hello everyone welcome back to my blog. Today I have rounded up my favourite hair trends - pastel hair trends to be precise. I just love pastel, it's just so gorgeous. I have rounded up my favourite colours from the whole pastel trend, so here goes...

The pastel pink look




I love pastel pink, it's just gorgeous. When Bleach London announced their amazing hair colours I couldn't wait to try this rosé colour. This conditioning dye lasts up to 2 to 10 washes, so no commitment. The greatest part is that this actually conditions your hair, so no dry dull locks. I have actually tried this colour myself, as you can see so I know that it's brilliant!

A drop of lilac...





I haven't tried this dye, well not yet anyway. I have ordered it online and I just can't wait to give it a go. I love the lilac hair trend and I have always been very envious of people with it. Now I have light enough hair, it's time I try it for myself! I will definitely write a post when I get this hair dye, on the results.


Peach lovin'


I have to admit hearing the word peach to describe a hair colour made me a little sceptical, but when I saw the results I just loved it. I don't think it is a hair colour that I could personally pull off but I'm sure others could. I have rounded up some peach hair dyes that seem the best in my opinion. As I have tried these brands in other colours, they are brands I trust. One is even a pre-lightener, so if your hair isn't quite as light this lightens and applies the peach all in one go!


So, which one is your favourite pastel colour? Let me know in the comments.

Until next time,

Pretty dresses from AisleStyle

Hello everyone welcome back to my blog. I was recently contacted by Aisle Style; asking if I would be kind enough to write a blog post about their lovely website. They offer dresses for many occasions including weddings and prom dresses.  I decided to combine my favourites picks from their site and maybe help any of you who are in a dilemma finding the perfect dress. Visit Aislestyle here





I love all things vintage, so I loved the fact they had a category for vintage themed bridesmaid dresses. I had to pick this one it is just gorgeous and makes the perfect bridesmaid dress.

You can choose from a range of colours in this style, so you can make it perfect for your day. 

There's a wide range of bridesmaid dresses on AisleStyle perfect for you to find the one. Browse the range here 





I think lace is gorgeous for any occasion but this makes the perfect prom dress. I know prom may seem a while away but it does not hurt to get a few ideas, right? There's many colours on offer in this dress but I just loved this blue colour. 




The  first communion dresses 


This gorgeous dress is so precious and perfect for the occasion. 


So, whatever the occasion AisleStyle pretty much has you covered; a perfect site for those special dates.

#Picture of the week




This weeks picture of the week is an image of my article, published in my local newspaper - The Sheffield Star. This article is all about small things in life that have sentimental values to you. I think this all ties in with the festive season. These items may not necessarily be worth a fortune but the sentiment makes them priceless and that is the moral to the whole article.

Until next time,

Two christmas party outfits from Esprit


Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. Today I wanted to share with you some gorgeous Christmas party outfits. All from a fabulous site called Esprit So, let me help you get ready for all those parties ahead.

I do love Esprit I think everything just looks so luxurious and chic from them. I would definitley reccomend buying from here - either as a gift or a little treat for yourself. 

I found Esprit last year after hearing a lot about them. I just had to browse their site. Now, I can't stop raving about them. I always reccomend them to people who are looking for that bit of luxury for a resonable price.

So, here are my two party looks I have teamed up just for you! Enjoy.

Look one

I love this outfit. The jumper goes perfectly with this beautiful black lace skirt. This is a huge trend this Autumn winter; to pair jumpers with dressy skirts. The best part is you will stay all cosy and warm but still look party ready.


Look two



Skirt - buy here 

Blouse - buy here

Heels - buy here  

Bangle - buy here 

I love the glittery skirt and the coloured heels. I really think this outfit screams Christmas with the sparkle and shine.


So, which one is your favourite outfit out of the two?

Until next time,

#PictureOfTheWeek



I love this picture of my cat Sooty. I was playing around with the aperture and f stops to create a blurred background. This was the first image I was really happy with practicing with aperture. I really think it draws your attention straight to the subject and makes it very effective.
