Make It Mine Monday

Oh my goodness, it has been so long now that I just had to blog today! I am planning on doing an outfit post tomorrow hopefully, depending on the weather! I was going to do one today but just as I got home it started to rain..typical! Anyway, I've been browsing the Topshop website today and came across some lovely pieces! Beware, there are many playsuits and pretty dresses below!






I only picked my ultimate favourites today as I don't want to tempt myself into buying everything!! I especially love the last dress and gold collar. I just think they are so sweet and I have lots of things I could match them with!! What do you think?

Little Update

Hey everyone! I thought I should do a little update post because I haven't blogged properly in a while. I have been so busy recently with uni work and getting back into the swing of things since being off for easter and stressing over all the work I have to do! But also because it was my 21st birthday yesterday so I have been celebrating since Saturday! I have been so, so spoilt aswell! I recieved a Pandora bracelet and charms from my Mum, Nan and Grandad and a charm each from my brother and his fiance and my boyfriend's mum which is so lovely! I also recieved two Pandora rings from my boyfriend which match my bracelet and a Tiffany necklace from my Dad, and also lots of other little bits and bobs from my friends. I feel so lucky to have my family, boyfriend and friends around to help celebrate my birthday. I have had such a great four days :)

Anyway, enough of the birthday ramblings! I have four weeks (well 3 and a half now!) left to do all of my work ready for the hand in and I am so scared!! Is anyone else feeling the pressure from uni work? I know I am not in my third year, so I shouldn't really be moaning, but it is still hard work and extremely stressful! So anyway, what I am trying to say is that I may not be blogging as much as I normally would for the next 4, or so, weeks. I will pop back because I can't stay away! But I will keep the posts short and sweet :)

Hope everyone is having a good day despite the rain!

Hello! Ahh I have just reached 150 followers!! I am so happy and so, so thankful for every single person who visits and follows my blog, it means so much! Also, I love reading all of your comments and I always reply to every single one so thank you, your comments make me smile :)

119. No one compares to you.

Top:  Forever 21
Shorts:  H&M

Hello beauties! So this is what I wore yesterday. I wanted to wear a lighter outfit seeing as the weather has been so horrible, so I opted for my new mint green blouse from Forever 21 and white lace shorts. The blouse is actually a large size because that was all they had but I liked it so much that I bought it anyway, and infact it looks more summery and floaty in the larger size which I quite like.

Just a short post today as I really should be getting on with my uni work! I have 5 weeks left and 3 projects to complete - god save me!

118. Turn around and walk away

Collar:  DIY/Self Made
Jumper:  Charming Magpies
Shorts:  DIY/Self Made

Hello! This is what I wore yesterday but I didn't have time to take any photo's so I thought I would do them today instead. I had uni yesterday and then I was driving up to Farnham to see my boyfriend so I wore quite a comfy outfit, not to mention the fact that the weather is horrible lately! Anyway, I absolutely love this vintage jumper from Charming Magpies which my boyfriend bought me for Christmas last year. It is so big and comfy and I love the pattern on it too. I paired it with my DIY pearl collar to make the look a bit different and I think it also lightens up the outfit too.

I've gone for another different background today in my bedroom and I really like it. What do you think? My room is so tiny so before I had a tripod there was no way I would have been able to get these images! But I think my room gets the best light in the house so I have been wanting to take outfit photos in there for a long time. If you haven't got a tripod already and you struggle with limited places to take your images then I would definitely recommend buying a cheap one from ebay. I got mine through last week and I am so much happier with my images since having it, plus it makes life so much easier too! 

Hope you've all had a good day!

BEAUTY REVIEW: Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lip Tint

Hello! Now, if you are a follower of mine then you will know that I don't do beauty reviews, but today I am making an exception. Today I was in Winchester high-street and needed to get some more eyeliner so I popped into Superdrug and went straight to Rimmel for my usual eyeliner pencil, when I came across the new 1000 Kisses Lip Tint pens. I have been looking at them and wanting to buy one for the last few weeks and finally bought one today. I went for the deepest red/pink shade of 'Timeless Tango' as I thought it would suit my skin tone the best, and it wasn't until I got home that I realised it comes with a lip balm on the opposite end to add shine and a more long lasting finish too.

My verdict: it is amazing! I have been wearing it since about 1pm today and I have only just had to re-apply after having my dinner. It stays on so well and I am really impressed! It does fade a little, don't get me wrong, but not noticeably. It is also so so easy to apply and the lip balm on the other end is also easy to apply. I would definitely recommend buying this product if, like me, you like a lipstick that will stay on all day without having to re-apply over and over, and coming in at £5.99 I think it is a really reasonable price.

117. We all look for heaven

Top:  Topshop
Skirt:  New Look
Shoes:  Primark

So, this is what I wore yesterday but my blogger wasn't working so I've had to upload it today. I was at work yesterday and this is what I wore so it's quite simple but I like that about this look. I really love these cropped t-shirts at the moment and with this high-waisted maxi skirt I think it works really well because you can only see part of my stomach, it's not completely on show. I have also gone for turquoise and silver jewellery to accessorize.

Hope your Monday is going better than mine! I went to uni and my lesson was cancelled, as is tomorrow's! Atleast I can get on with my work in my own space :)
