Current Favourites

I have given myself the pleasure of doing all my work during the week so I can spend this weekend re-lax-ing. Bliss.
I took the opportunity to take some photos and, after initially just taking snaps of my outfit, I decided I would do a capsule of some of the fashion and beauty items I am loving.
H&M scarf
I have spoken about this scarf before and the happiness it brought; its so large and soft and cosy. Its like a blanket, I have, at school, been known for whipping it out and wrapping it round me like a blanket. Its all about comfort. They have so many lovely scarves in H&M at the moment, if you are looking for one, that's your place.

 Bomber Jacket
There is a new vintage shop in Newcastle and its bloody good. Its tiny and really hidden away but has the best gems. I bought this men's bomber jacket a month or two ago for £10 and I love it. Its incredibly easy to wear but unfortunately I've had to hang it up as its too cold to wear now.

 Hershel Rucksack
I used to use this bag for school, it was beautiful and I loved it but, with all the folders and books I have to carry to school, it was causing real damage to my shoulders. So, in order to balance the weight out, I bought this rucksack. I really like it, its very simple but the red zips add a bit of detail and I love the pinstripe lining.
Garnier BB cream
This is a barely there product, but I like that. It adds a nice healthy glow to your skin and evens out any areas of discolouration. I apply this with either my fingers or the Zoeva 102 Silk finish brush when I just want a bit more in my skin.

Maybelline Colour Show Shadow in Copper Rush
This is a 'shop-my-stash' product-I hadn't used this for ages but have fallen back in love. It's incredibly creamy so definitely works best applied with fingers. The boldness of it can be altered, creating either a slight brush of shimmer or, what I like best, can be built up into a full eye of glitter.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
I really didn't like this mascara at the start, I didnt feel it lived up to its hype. However, it has had sometime to get drier (I always think mascaras are better for that) and builds a lot of boldness. It does clump slightly but I use another mascara to separate out my lashes. Plus, its good value.

Mac Teddy Liner
This was purchased on a bit of a whim however I really like it. Its a dark bronze shade which is perfect if I am either doing a browny eye (as black is often too harsh) or want something a little more subtle. I also really like it on its own in the waterline as it wears down into a distressed, messy kinda look. Thumbs up.

Music: I don't think my love for Ben Howard will ever die, this and this are my current favourites.
Film: I've been to see Spectre twice in the past week. It is fabulous-I absolutely loved it.

What are your current favourites?

  1. I really want a big scarf like that, it looks so cosy! And I want a Hershel rucksack, my friend has one and the straps are so padded, it must be so comfy. Plus they're so simple yet pretty. Also that eyeliner looks so pretty :)x
