As well as buying lots of makeup (too much…), I’ve also been buying some skincare bits and pieces! Let me share my haul with you…
Sometimes it’s just not possible to lug your DSLR around all day, so you have to make do with what you have (ie. your phone)… This is what I wore on a lovely sunny day last week, and we went to see The Great Gatsby (which was alright… The costumes were great though). I love this orange dress which I picked up from H&M last month. It was only £15 and I think the style is really flattering and the colour is gorgeous for summer.
Roll on the real summer days when I don’t have to wear tights!
Wow… I cannot believe it’s been over a month since my last post. I’m trying not to get too upset over it, because I want to update my blog when I feel it’s time to, but a month is such a long time! Work is super busy at the moment, but I’m trying not to spend so much time there. Right now I’m getting in at 8am and not leaving until gone 6pm, with no time for a break either. I worked it out and that’s a 50 hour week. I don’t get paid anywhere near enough to be working those kinds of hours! I think when you start to feel anxious about work, you need to step back and have a serious think about why it’s making you feel like that.
I filmed a little haul a few weeks ago (It took me 2 weeks to get round to editing), and another is on it’s way. Now that the weather is getting nice and warm I need to get back into taking more outfit photos, as I think I’ve only done about 5 so far this year! I’ve been thinking about how I can create some exciting content for the blog, and I might do some different sorts of posts around fashion, and I might incorporate a bit of beauty too… who knows?!
I hope everyone’s enjoying the long weekend – relax and enjoy the sun!
And the sun has appeared! After a very, very long winter, spring has finally arrived. I’ve been trying to dress more summery recently with bright colours and floral patterns, but I’ve been slightly standing out due to the dreary weather. Now, fingers crossed, I’ll be able to dress more weather appropriate.
I’ve been super busy (I know, I know…) so I haven’t been able to blog much. I’ve been trying to get around to filming something too, but people who don’t blog don’t really get how long everything takes. If it’s an outfit post you need to put a bit of effort into the outfit, take the photos, edit and then upload the post. And when you’re filming, that takes 10 times longer, especially the editing side of things and then uploading on a super-slow broadband speed (Thanks EE!). I’d love to know how bloggers with a full-time job keep up the blogging on the side too, especially those with a 45min+ commute either way. I know there are ore and more full-time bloggers/Youtubers, who solely do this, but if you have a 9-5 job as well it can get a little draining. I’m an editor for an online retailer, so the last thing I want to do is create more content, and I hate doing anything half hearted…
Anyway, I don’t want to rant. Let’s have a look at the clothes! The midi/maxi floral dress was found in a charity shop last year. I love it, especially in the warmer months. The yellow jumper was a New York find, which makes it over a year old now (wow, I really want to go back to New York!). The boots are Topshop via eBay, and are soooo comfy. I have the black version too, which you’ve probably seen in an outfit picture or two, and I love to war them for work. Finally, the necklace is a Primark special and the lipstick is Ronnie Red by MAC… Lush.
And it’s that time again… Time for the monthly favourites! I’ve got quite a mix this month, and I hope you enjoy watching what I’ve loved using!
