Fashion | Holiday Insta-Lookbook #1

As some of you may know, I ventured off to Tenerife at the end of last month for ten glorious days in the sun with my boyfriend. We had a fabulous time and sipped many a delicious cocktail whilst taking full advantage of the sun and pool. As I didn't want to take my hefty camera, I decided to snap my outfits over on my Instagram so I that could compile a mini holiday lookbook for you all! It will consist of 3 parts, the first being swimwear and the rest being my night-time outfits. I'll be leaving all details and any links that I can find to every outfit - enjoy!

Outfit 1 // Bikini - Triangl*

Outfit 2 // Swimsuit - Topshop (similar here)

Outfit 3 // Bikini - Primark

Beauty | Bourjois Rouge Velvet Lipstick

Okay, so ya'll know by now that red lipsticks are kinda a big thing with me. I've rocked one ever since I left school and was able to wear a little bit more make-up. When the Rimmel Apocalips were released what seems like a century ago, it was my real first introduction to a long wearing liquid formula lipstick - and I bloomin' loved them! Earlier this year, Bourjois released their take on the liquid lipstick so I thought I'd give one a whirl.

First things first, cute and simple packaging, just how I like it! The bottle shows the shade well and they are not too big so perfect for popping in to your handbag. When I tried the Apocalips last year, I found that they applied really easily and I couldn't pick a fault with them. However, I had a real struggle applying this to my lips. I found that I could not fill my lip shape in correctly and the edge of my lips were a bit 'blobby' and uneven. If a mistake was made (which did occur!) I found that it was super hard to correct as it dried so fast and I ended up smudging it all over my face. I was disappointed with the result so I applied a MAC Lipstick over the top; At least when that began to wear off, I had some sort of red stain underneath. I suppose that shows that it is long wearing. But I just couldn't quite get used to the smell ...

Bit a negative ninny today aren't I? Just sharing my opinion and sometimes I think it's good to hear something a bit different rather than hearing that everything is amazing. Have you tried this release? What were your thoughts? Let me know in the comments, thanks for reading!

Fashion | Charity Shopping

Charity shops - you either love them or you hate them. Some people have the thought that they are catered more towards the older generation and I suppose in one way, yes they are, as the majority of the fashion held in charity shops isn't particularly my cup of tea. However, if you rummage your way through, you really can find some gems in amongst the rails...

The people over at the new Daisy Chain Superstore at Portrack Lane invited me over to have a look around at the new store and I was thrilled. It is a huge two level space with a large furniture section and a small cafe downstairs. Upstairs there are rails upon rails of clothes and a glass cabinet filled with trinkets and jewellery. I was given the task to find some things to show that us, the younger generation, shouldn't disregard Charity shops completely. I found this white crop top with lace detailing, which I think would look fabulous with a pair of Mom jeans! The cute pink beaded necklace is perfect too! I also found a sheer white shirt and a really cool glitter vest. It really does go to show that Charity shopping can be a thing and what's better than buying stuff on the cheap and helping out those in need at the same time? It's a win-win situation! I even picked up a cute lilac passport holder (see here) for only 50p - bargain!

In previous charity shop trips, I've found brands from Topshop to even MinkPink for under £5 - completely worth it! Make sure you let me know your thoughts on Charity shops and if there are place that you consider to shop in? I'd love to know - thanks for reading!
