No- MY SKIN IS NOT PERFECT 

Good morning beautiful people, 

Just a quick post about my skin, I get soo many compliments about how perfect and smooth my skin is. The truth is, its not perfect. Infact am not happy with my skin at all but I do try my best to use products that are suitbale for me. 

So this morning while doing my makeup, I kind of documented the process so you can all see how I do it. 

Heres a picture with no makeup 

Yeah, this is my naked skin and am not ashamed because I know under the layers of makeup no girl will ever be happy with their skin- or at least am saying this to make myself feel better. 

  • First thing I use is the Body Shop VITAMIN C SKIN REVIVER.  I tried usinng soo many different moisturisers and this is the only one that works for my skin.  
  • I then apply my foundation- bourjois healthy mix foundation   
  • Can you see the difference, and how good the coverage is? I am soo obsessed with this foundation   
  • Eyeshadow- beleive it or not i have a small pallete from Inglot with only 4 shades of eyeshadow- I use the light colour under my eyes instead of concealer- this works perfect for me and I never get crease or breakage. I use the other two medium colours as eyeshadow and the very dark one for my eyebrows.

 
See the difference between my eyebrows??    I use white pencil to go under my eyebrows- this defines them a little more, I prefer this to eyeshadow. 

Once all done- mascara- I use different ones everyday as long as it colours my lashes am happy.  

  And bronzer- my everyday bronzer from the body shop- sometimes I use this as eyeshadow as well :p 

  

      And finally when all done we all need some lipstick ūüíč 

 
And just style ur hair —-  

   
Selfie during my shoot– same makeup just different lipstick   
Hows my great transformation??

 Have a great day everyone. 

More posts soon

Love you all xoxo

My Interview – You Can Do It Too.

All we need is some inspiration from here and there –

A¬†few weeks ago I was interviewed by Southampton Solent University for a project called ‘ You Can Do It Too”. This project is for younger student to get inspired and get advise from graduates and how we as graduates got to where we are now as well as what we would change if we were a student again.

So, heres a quick interview. Enjoy.

 

And just a quick update РI am getting ready for another shoot, collaborating with another graduate student for a  Vintage theme but using current trend- Can we do this?? I will share the work soon.

 

Love you all

Update- working with my friend

after soo long, I had the pleasure to work with one of my good friends, shes a photographer and we have done many shoots before. working with her is always really fun. All the shoots used to be for me, for my blog and for my projects but this time it was her project which made it all super exciting. I always learn soo many new things about photography, canera, fashion and makeup from this girl and always value her opinion. Until I get the original pictures i will share the ones i took on my phone today. 

   
              
And after the shoot I went to the forest to watch the sunset, 

Quick nap first

   And felt fresh while watching the sunset. One of my fav things to do 

   

  

  

 Now am home and ready for bed/sleep 
Good night all ūüėė‚̧ԳŹ  

WHERE DID YOU GET THAT FROM?

Hey beautiful people,¬†I hope you’re all having a great time.

Weather has been amazing for the past few days and I try to take advantage of it as much as I can, even it means chilling in the park during my lunch break.

Just a quick update first: I started this blog last year to explore my own fashion style but now, since I have been working full time I feel like I am documenting my outfits on my days off.

ABOUT MY OUTFIT

So many people asked me if my dress is vintage, if its been made for me and so on….

I purchased this dress a few days ago from¬†Miss Selfridge’s SALE for only ¬£12.¬†I know its so cheap I couldn’t believe it either.

PS I CUT MY HAIR: Why? ¬†I don’t even know that myself. I just managed to chop my pony and no time to go to the hairdressers to get it fixed but leaving it curly and messy is looking fine for now. Just need to avoid straightening it until its cut properly. Good change for the summer? Bravest thing I’v done so far

DAY OFF OOTD am just chilling – What do you guys think about my outfit?

BLACK AND WHITE

The most colorful thing in the world is black and white, it contains all colors and at the same time excludes all.
“Do you agree??? ”

I have been obsessed with black and white for like ever (mentioned in my previous posts).  Did I tell you guys that I am obsessed with ‘Shirt-dresses’.

black-and-white-9 black-and-white-8 black-and-white-7 Black-and-white-6 Black-and-white-5 Black-and-White-4 black-and-white-3 Black-and-white-2 Black-and-White-1 Black-and-white-10

 Shirt-dress – I was soo in love with this pretty white flickered shirt dress from FRENCH CONNECTION since last summer but never got the chance to buy it until a while ago, I saw one on sale and I knew it was meant to be for me. Very Easy to style- When the weather is a little dull and cold I wear it with black tights and when warm and sunny I wear it without.

Boots –  I purchased these beautiful black paten boots from ZARA – I was just browsing looking for inspiration and their new collection. I came across these boots in their sale section, it was so cheap I couldn’t resist. We all love a bargain :P.

Bag- I purchased this bag from DUNE LONDON 3 years ago I think and I only used it once. I had to buy a new bag because all the work girls decided to go out last minute and I didn’t wanted to drive all the way home and back just for a bag so I thought it will be a good idea to buy a new one and it was the only bag that went with my outfit. I got lucky with this bag as well, because it was reduced from 75¬£ to 35¬£ I think. Hopefully I will use this bag more in the summer :).

Necklace – From NEW LOOK – I found this in my Jewellery box, it looks ok with the dress, I don’t have many necklaces – need to invest more…On my wish list…

Hat – from H&M I purchased this hat last year to go with a dress I think I never used it again since I was wearing al black and white, this hat went well with my style and completed the look.

What do you guys think about my BLACK and WHITE outfit?

 

Lots of Love

Happy Easter 

   

Happy Easter/ Spring Break.

Sometimes I miss being a kid, I dont feel like I appreciated/enjoyed school/college as much as I should’ve. I always wanted to grow old and work not realising once my childhood is gone I can never get it back. 

Lets take a moment and appreciate where we are and how we are and be grateful for what we have.  

Have a wonderful Easter sunday and stay tuned as am going to post my outfit later..

Love you all xo
