Diet Coke Beauty Break with L'Oreal





L'Oreal Color Riche Lipsticks - Boots 

Hello lovelies, want long lasting lipstick with a pop of colour followed by a refreshing Diet Coke? Well I've got just the thing for you! As you know Diet Coke is no stranger to my blog as its honestly my favourite drink, I could literally drink it all day long! When I heard Diet Coke were collaborating with L'Oreal I just knew I had to share this post with you all. There are some fabulous beauty hacks you can try with your new lippy! 

Up until 8th November 2016... (a limited time only) when you pick up a 500ml bottle of Diet Coke and a L'Oreal Color Riche Lipstick in 'Bois de Rose', 'Rose Tendre' or 'Red Passion' in Boots you'll receive an extra £3 off! Now if this isn't an excuse to go lipstick shopping, I don't know what is!

Now for the fun part, lipstick has so many uses for example using two different tones to plump up your pout, doubling up as a cream blush and even using a pink tone for a concealer! I even tried learning how to sip in style by using a straw to decrease the risk of those dreaded lipstick marks.

So, what are you waiting for?! Get down to Boots and have yourself a well deserved #DietCokeBeautyBreak

Which colour will you choose?

Halloween BTS

Dress  - Boohoo
Halo  - Boohoo
Mascara  - Superdrug

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I hope you guys are doing something super spooky this weekend? I'm dressing up and going out this weekend so I thought I'd share my top tips and outfit ideas with you all!

So this year I've gone for the fallen angel look and guess what? I found the absolute perfect slogan bodycon dress from Boohoo! When I saw 'Witch Please' I just knew I had to have it! Not only was it an absolute bargain at £8, the quality is also fabulous, meaning this was a win win buy! 

I then found Boohoo were also stocking Halloween accessories and immediately spotted a sparkly halo. For £4, this was added to my basket straight away, meaning my whole outfit totalled at £12 for the night! I was literally in shock as this is probably the cheapest night out look I've ever purchased. I'm teaming this look with my favourite thigh high heeled boots to add a real statement on the night. 

So what about Halloween glam? This is the chance to go OTT with everything in your makeup bag. Add a bit of sparkle, a smokey eye and some red lippy into the mix and you've got yourself the perfect look. I'm absolutely loving Maybelline's new 'Spider Effect' mascara, this is perfect for exaggerating those lashes for a real lengthy but volumized look.


What are your Halloween tips & tricks? Let me know below!
Have a spooktacular day! *face palm* haha

PLT x Marbella - The Dina Dress


Guess who's fresh back from Marbs?🙋 What a week - honestly I don't know where it went! So what better way to end Summer than by shooting some of my favourite looks from this season (in the sun of course). I jetted off to Marbella last week with my boyfriend (who was on photography duty) for a week of como's, date nights and tanning time! We stayed at the absolutely gorgeous Gran Melia Don Pepe which was ultimate interior goals, you probably saw this if you hit me up on Instagram over the week. 

Anyway, kicking off my holiday look book is this show stopping number from PLT. Yes, its no secret that I love a LBD and probably own way too many, but there is a reason for this - its a classic. Black may be signature however nude is quickly rivalling. I shot the same dress in two different colours (something I've never done before) to show you guys how versatile this style really is.

For me, there's nothing more glamorous than a figure hugging mini dress which has a seamless fit. With this with a lace cross over and added chocker detailing, you're set for the season. Pair this with a nude barely there strappy sandals and you've added instant elegance.

So are you TEAM LBD or LBN?

Let me know in the comments!

Graduation


Happy Monday beauts! I thought I'd kick the week off with some photos from my second graduation. Second grad... say what?! I actually had one a year ago, however as my course at ACM was affiliated by Middlesex, the official ceremony was a few weeks back meaning I got to dress up on the cap and gown all over again (the excitement) haha! 

A year on from actually finishing my degree I couldn't of been in a better place! University for me was a different experience as I lived at home and commuted to Guildford a few times a week for lectures, meaning I guess I missed out on that typical "uni lifestyle". 

On reflection I wouldn't change it for the world, it meant that I could grow my blog and find my feet in the industry meaning I've got to the place where I am now just that bit quicker. I often get asked the question, is getting a degree worth it? I honestly think yes! I met some fabulous people, networked, engaged in inspiring lectures and got my foot in the door industry wise. I may not be in the music industry currently, however I found my niche in marketing which is what I'm doing today in beauty. I love the fact I found out what made me tick at university and combined it with my blogging to find a job I love!

So there you have it, something a little different to my usual posts, however something I hope you guys have enjoyed! Of course we can't get away with not talking about the outfit, which is all from my faves at Missguided - minus the cap and gown of course!


Have a fabulous week!

Diet Coke Beauty Break with Essie


Essie Nail Varnish - Boots 

Hello lovelies, I hope you are all doing well! Today's post is a fantastic collaboration between Diet Coke & Essie which I just knew I'd have to share with you guys. So last week I was super excited when this surprise box of goodies arrived in my bloggermail and having had massive success with the Diet Coke eyeliner hack I knew this would not disappoint! 

So for until 24th May 2016... (a limited time only guys) you can pick up a 500ml bottle of Diet Coke and an Essie nail varnish in 'Cocktail Bling', 'Fiji' or 'Fishnet Stockings' for only £5.99 in Boots! This would usually cost £9.39 which means a big saving and a perfect excuse for a nail treat.

I received all three colours and I have to say I do have a little soft spot for 'Cocktail Bling' it is the perfect grey. Ombre nails have been a big hit for a while now, and as if by magic Diet Coke have an amazing hack to help you achieve this. Start off by peeling the label from a Diet Coke bottle, then paint your base colour, I went for 'Fiji'. Let this coat dry, then roll up your label into a tube shape, next paint the end of the tube with 'Cocktail Bling'. Carefully blot the end of the tube onto the tip of your nail, getting lighter handed as you reach the middle and voila the perfect ombre nail!

What are you waiting for, get down to boots and have a #DietCokeBeautyBreak now... P.S did you know nail varnish actually performs better cold? Pop it in the fridge along with your Diet Coke and let me know your results!

Be Jealous


Dress - Be Jealous
Heels - Topshop (similar here) - £42

Gosh where has the time gone?! As some of you might know I started a new job in marketing for a company called Beauty Department just over a month ago (which I’m loving btw), so as you can imagine my heads been completely in work mode learning and developing my role! You guys know what I’m like… a complete workaholic and proud haha! I’ve let my blog take a back seat, just for a while as I’ve been adjusting to the 9 -5 days (a lot different to freelance haha) however, now it’s time to get back on it. I’ve also just bought my first convertible and am in L-O-V-E, it’s a BMW black beauty and I’m just a little bit obsessed with it! Another one of my goals checked off this year, which has made me more motivated than ever! RIGHT LIFE UPDATE FINITO… let’s get to the post!

Let’s talk new clothing brand Be Jealous where this gorgeous khaki number is from. The whole high neck choker style has been around from a little now, however I’m still loving the trend (who isn’t haha) and I may own a fair few pieces with this style… oops! Khaki I have also recently been obsessed with, it’s a colour that matches pretty much any complexion, hair colour and guess what you can take it all year round. This is perfect if you want to invest in a dress, and update your LBD, khaki is your colour. 

Are you yay or nay to the choker trend? Let me know in the comments!
