Last Wedding Of The Year

Last night me and my parents were invited to a wedding reception last night and it's the last wedding of the year for me to attend to (don't know if I can do anymore shopping trying to find outfits!). Earlier this year I had bought this lovely skater dress from Gok Wan's collection for Tu at Sainburys. When I tried it on I was in love, it is so comfortable and you don't feel restricted in any way at all and is very flattering as my mum kept saying. As it was a little cold to wear on its own I put on this white long line jacket I recently purchased from Primark. It was a good job I did wear it because the venue thought it would be a good idea to have the air con on full blast! I kept my jewellery to a minimum with a knuckle ring and a oversized pair of studs (no longer available) and my white laser cut out underarm bag, all from River Island. I went for comfort with footwear and put on a pair of flat sandals.

20% off River Island from Elle Magazine

Elle magazine have teamed up with River Island and given 20% off to its readers for use in store and online being that I'm often purchasing items from there I had to buy the magazine. Its £4 for the magazine but if your like me you could buy everything in the store you could save yourself quite a bit of money. Earlier this year they had a black jersey blazer which I wanted so badly but they sold out in my size and in my local store. I did email the customer service but they were unhelpful. Recently I've had my eye on this black zig zag jacket which I know would go perfect with everything and a new leopard print purse my current one just seems to takw up so much space in my bags. I'm a little excited as I've seen so many clothes I want from their site I want its hard to control the urge!

L'Oréal CC Cream Anti-Redness

Recently when I go out on my days off I have been feeling a little conscious of my skin (face) as my cheeks can be a little red and unevan and I feel just urgh at times. I don't want to cover my face in concealer and foundation as I hate caking my skin blocking my pores and looking like I have added a layer of plaster on my face. The three foundations I own are No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation, Lush Little Yellow and Benefits Play Stick, obviously I do not use all three at the same time but I find they don't cover the redness so much. I had seen the L'Oréal CC creams the one that caught my eye was the Anti-Redness, they also do Anti-Fatigue and Anti-Dullness. I tried a small bit on my hand was a little shocked as it came out green but as I was rubbing it in the colour came out and you could definitely see the difference. To say the least I was amazed and straight away though yes I need to buy this! I have since used this a few times and just love the results. It's typical that the day I take a before and after my skin is not as red as it has been !

The Girl With The Red Lips

Daniel once again has done it to me and got me to go out on Thursday night. As usual I have a panic on what to wear. I've had a bit of a long week back at work after having time off and I didn't feel to dress up too much I wanted it casual but a little dressy kind of. I wore my black mesh panel leggings from ASOS, long sleeve black shirt from Primark and my New Look sandals (unfortunately no longer in stock).




One thing I did love was my hair and make up, I curled the ends and just before I left I went a little crazy with TRESemmé Texture Style Divine Definition Spray and some hair spray to keep the curls in place and they certainly lasted even till the next day! For my make up I used the Benefit's Pore Professional as a base/primer, then L'Oreal Paris CC Cream in Anti Redness to try even out my skin tone (I will be writing a post about this in more detail). I used Inglot Mattifying Loose Powder in the white to just keep my face from going shiny, whenever I'm out and about this is a key item I have in my bag! Of course I have to use Benefit's They're Real Mascara to add onto my eyes as I do really wear eye shadow. Red lips was a must but I'm still trying to find that perfect shade of red instead of mixing two together. I based my lips with the No7 Stay Perfect Lipstick in Grace and the topped it with the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipstick in Hot Pepper and I loved it.

Beauty Buys of August

A couple months ago it was Nowara's birthday and I bought her a couple things from Soap and Glory as I know she loves them, so then I decided to buy some myself as I'd tried hers previously. As Boots do the 3 for 2 on the miniatures I thought why not, I got the Endless Glove, Hand Food and Mist You Madly. I am loving the mist spray, its a different day to day spray to what I'd normally use but its nice to have variety. The Hand Food cream is good, it doesn't make your hands feel greasy at all and is great to use daily. I haven't yet used the Endless Glove cream yet but my Mum has and said she loves it!
