Flowery Tea Dress

Firstly I'd like to apologise for the really awkward posing in the corner of my back garden. I've been busy this weekend and haven't really had the chance to go snap happy for the blog, but I'd just had to share this beautiful floral dress which I picked up in the Topshop sale for £20.

The dress not only has a gorgeous pattern but it also has cut out details on the side and 3/4 length flute sleeves which just add an extra something special. To make it a bit more boho and wintery I have just paired it with my cropped faux fur gillet from New Look  along with my trusty boots and ankle socks.

I hope you all had a good weekend.

The Little Suede Dress

This weekend I've actually felt like its beginning to feel a bit more wintery as the weather was so cold and crisp.

Yesterday I popped out for lunch at Royal William Yard with Simon and thought I would grab a quick OOTD. The dress is a lovely faux suede shift from good ol' Primark which I layered over their basic black polo neck for a bit of added warmth! The jacket is River Island and the lipstick is a random berry shade from Tesco, but it's amazing quality.

I hope you all had a good weekend!

Colour Pop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

All I have been reaching for and putting on my lips recently is the Colour Pop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks. I didn't think I was really a fan of matte lips until I tried these bad boys. I got two nude shades (because you can never have enough) in Solow and Shimmy.

These liquid lipsticks have beautiful colour, strong pigment and last all day even after eating and drinking; I never have to worry about re-applying!

They can feel a little drying when you first put them on but that soon fades and I then forget I'm even wearing it. They can also  be a bit tricky to apply and I imagine the darker colours being even worse, because although they go on like a lipgloss, they dry very quick which means if you slip outside the lines a little its hard to correct and you end up looking more like Pete Burns than Kylie Jenner. I'd definitely say outline your lips first with a pencil if possible or remove some product off the wand and very carefully outline your lips before colouring them in.

The only down thing about this product and Colour Pop in general is that they don't currently ship to the UK but I have found a seller on eBay who sells all sorts of American goodies that we can't get our mitts on over here so easily.

Have you tried these before? If so let me know what other colours I should try next.

Hope you had a good weekend.

The Autumn Tag

The lovely Abiee Lucas tagged me in the Autumn Tag the other day. I've never done a tag before so I thought why not. So hear goes..

1. Favourite Candle
Well this is a bit of a awkward first question... if truth be told I don't ever light candles. I love the smell of candles and always buy them then forget to light them and they become more of a dust collector. During Autumn though I love warm smells like spiced apple, it just excites me for Christmas.

2. Favourite Lip Colour
I love bold lips all year round but my favourite for the Autumn time is either MAC New York Apple, Ruby Woo and Colour Pop's Liquid Lipstick in Solow.

3. Favourite Drink
This is a no brainer it has to be a good old hot chocolate with all the trimmings. I like making it over the stove with milk as I just think it tastes so much nicer.

4. Favourite Blush
Its another MAC product and it is a baked blush called Gentle. Its basically like a dark plum purple with a sheen running through it. Sounds a bit much but looks lovely on.

5. Favourite Clothing Item
My favourite clothing item is a faux fur scarf. I just through it over any of my jackets and it just instantly dresses it up and keeps you really warm as well.

6. Favourite Movie
It's got to be Home Alone 1 or 2. I know its more of a Winter film as its Christmassy but who cares as soon as Septembers over i'm in the zone for Christmas.

7. Favourite TV Show
Pretty Little Liars Halloween special any day. I just love that show and it just gets creepier in October. Who doesn't love it?

8. Favourite Thanksgiving Food
I don't celebrate Thanksgiving as i'm from England, but from what I gather its pretty much a roast? If so it has to be yorkshire puds or roast potatoes.

9. Favourite Halloween Costume
I've never gone out as an adult on Halloween so haven't dressed up for it in ages. When I was younger I was always the token witch with an mask and minging teeth. Now I love watching all the YouTube videos of all the amazing make up and special effects they do. I'm actually going out this year and I'm considering being a mermaid that's been caught by a fishing hook. Sounds really random but I've seen a picture idea and it looks really good if I can get the makeup right.

And that's all the questions done with! I now tag...
