A Stroll Before I Go Back To Work


*UPDATED*
Yesterday was my last day off before I go back to work after just over a week off :( I didn't wan to just sit around and do nothing so I popped to town just to have a browse and possibly buy a pair of leggins I'd seen in New Look Inspire a few days ago. I couldn't decide what to wear so I wore what I know best.. Black (lol). I wore the most comfortable leggings I own stretchy plain black leggings from Marks and Spencer, these are the best I have come across after years of searching but for the last two years they have never disappointed. I had this long line dip hem shirt (purchased a couple years back) and a pair of simple black sandals, 
both from New Look. They no longer stock the black ones but they have them in white or here is a similar pair in black. I think I have a bit of an addiction to New Look, they have got some nice statement pieces coming in this season, I'm a little excited an excuse to shop!! I was very minimal with my jewellery as I only wore the cutest little dainty Scorpio necklace I got from River Island a few days prior. I almost forgot my leopard print bow belt from Primark which matches my phone case :)

Beauty fav's of July

Firstly I'd like to apologise for the delay with this post I've had some time off recently, been having some fun at Notting Hill Carnival and relaxing!!

This post is slightly different instead of all the beauty buys I've selected my favourites, which are my purchases from Wales! It was my fist time in Mac actually speaking to someone about what I wanted and it was quite nice because it was so early in the morning I was like the first customer and only for a while. After having my make up done I also had my first experience in Jo Malone. 



I wanted a decent foundation and after reading so many reviews on websites/blogs I decided that I would go with a Mac foundation, something not too heavy but has enough coverage but nothing sheer. I did have an idea of what kind of ones I was looking for but she asked what my needs were so medium coverage, kind of matte finish and the main thing I have combination skin tone and she came back with the Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation in NC25, she applied it and the coverage was exactly what I wanted, wasn't too heavy you could still see my freckles slightly beneath but that was fine. The only problem is if I get a slight tan it may be a little pale for me but can always purchase a darker shade.



My first Mac lipstick moment was so exiting I couldn't resist myself. Nudes are me at the moment especially when I go out, they are perfect for day and night time, she picked out one and I tried it but it wasn't what I was looking for then she got Velvet Teddy and straight away I was like yes this is the one!


I kind of needed a new mascara as my They're Real slowly running out, so when it comes to this I want VOLUME, I love long lashes. I luckily have naturally long lashes but adding mascara just makes my eyes pop more I think. So when she applied Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash I was more shocked then when I first tried on They're Real.


Lastly, Jo Malone. This shop is just amazing, I will definitely be returning to a store closer to me when I next go away. I have written a separate post about my experience read here.

Enjoy
