VERTICAL STRIPES & NAVY TROUSERS | RIVER ISLAND


Stripes are back, and I just can't get enough of them. Nautical stripes, vertical stripes, colourful stripes - you name it! I am officially obsessed. I feel like stripes are also a great transitional print into the Spring season, easing you more into that little subtle bit of difference, be it with the sole print or a subtle colour change. I recently picked up this staple 'poplin' button up shirt from River Island, and I just couldn't wait to style it up and show you guys....

YSL TOUCHE ÉCLAT FOUNDATION


I recently picked up the Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint Touche Éclat foundation in B10 Beige, and I immediately wanted to do a review about it. Now, everyone's heard about the YSL Touche Éclat highlighter (which I still desperately need to try!) yet I haven't heard all that much about it's sister product, the foundation. I've been taking my time trying to find and decide on a really great high-end foundation to invest in, as I was starting to grow a little tired of using high-street ones. Even though my student budget can't always make that stretch to buy luxurious products all of the time, it's sometimes really nice just to indulge yourself in something that makes you feel and look good....

BENEFIT PORE O' CLOCK EVENT | NEWCASTLE

Yesterday I attended the Benefit Pore o'clock event, which was more of a party than a product promotion. Of course, it was all in aid of the greatly hyped up 'Porefessional' primer. It's a creamy based consistency, that glides over the skin and supposedly minimizes pores.  I've heard many great things about this particular benefit wonder, so I thought I would see what all the fuss is about....

HOW TO: EASILY BAKE YUMMY CHOCOLATE BROWNIES


I find that there's nothing better on a weekend to do than a spot of baking - it's just something different and fun to do, especially to just watch your creations from scratch come to life! And OK, So I know mine does look a little, tiny weeny bit burnt on the top - but that's mainly because my oven at my Uni house is absolutely rubbish! And yes, it does pretty much look like a baked chocolate cake tray, but this was the pre-cutting into 'brownie squares' stage! It still tasted absolutely divine. Here's how to easily make the recipe in a fool-proof way, in just under an hour.....


VALENTINES DAY & MY 20TH BIRTHDAY | UPDATE

Hello my lovelies! So sorry that I haven't posted in a while, this past week or so has been manic, but in a good way. February is always my favourite month (but that's pretty bias) just because it's my birthday, it's valentines day, and of course - it's pancake day! I thought I would share with you a few things that I've been up to, just because I've had the best week....


WALKS IN JESMOND | CAMEL & STRIPES

This upcoming spring season is all about camel colours and the classic dash of stripes, which I've incorporated both together into this outfit. I felt like going on a leisurely walk around Jesmond Dene Park (which if you're based in Newcastle, you'll know where I'm talking about!). It's a beautiful huge foresty park, which is perfect to go on quiet walks. I decided to take my camera with me today, to grab some outfit shots....
