Hey guys, I bought some Arbonne products recently and I’m so excited to show them to you guys! Arbonne is a Beauty and Skin Care company which uses all natural and beneficial ingredients. It’s a vegan and gluten-free brand which is perfect. There’s no nasties and I can assure you’ll love the products.
I firstly used the Makeup Primer which reminds me of the Benefit Porefessional but this product is so much more silky and velvety and feels lovely on the skin. It costs £27 and will last you 3-4 months! I never usually wore a face primer day-to-day but now I’ll definitely be using this religiously. The CC cream is what I’m most excited about, in the photos I’m wearing the Medium shade which I think is perfect for me. I LOVE how this looks on my skin, it’s so light, glowy and duey – it’s my new favourite product. After I applied the primer and CC cream, I added a little bronzer to my cheekbones and my temples, I love this bronzer because it’s not too dark, this shade is the only shade available and it suits all different skin tones. You guys might have noticed I’m an eyeliner junkie but when I applied the Arbonne mascara, I didn’t feel the need to apply liner because I thought my lashes looked amazing!!! They were so long and volumised and I think I looked so much more awake. You need to try this mascara, this was just one layer!! Lastly I applied the lipstick in the shade Hibiscus, it’s such a beautiful colour and I would wear this not only at night but during the day, it’s the perfect day to night shade.
The first photo is before I applied my makeup, you can see my skin looks quite dull and tired, the bigger photo is after I applied one layer of the CC cream and the other products, my face looks so much healthier and fresh. The bottom left photo I took when I got home about 5 hours later and my face still looked just as fresh and duey, I absolutely love these products.
I will link the products down below and you can have a look for yourself!
Makeup Primer, £27
CC Cream, £31
Lipstick (Hibiscus), £20
My Arbonne website, happy shopping!
Hey guys, the next few months are full of birthdays in my family and two were this past weekend, haha. On Sunday it was my little sister Kelsey’s birthday, she’s finally a teenager! She turned 13 and I swear, it’s so crazy to see how quickly she’s growing up, I feel so old. My family all went for breakfast on Sunday morning and had a huge, delicious buffet! Afterwards I took her shopping so she could spend her birthday money (standard)! Tyler Oakley (YouTuber) is touring at the moment and coincidentally he was in Glasgow touring on the night of her birthday and thankfully I managed to get tickets. The show was fun, our seats were right at the front which was perfect. I bought her birthday cake from Costco!!! Let’s be real, this is bloody amazing. It only cost £8 and let me tell you, it tasted delicious. No regrets y’know!
On Monday, it was Christopher, my boyfriends 20th birthday and it was another lovely day. I definitely gained some weight over the weekend haha! On Monday we had breakfast with his family then went shopping, we also had some amazing freshly made doughnuts! They were eaten before any photos could have been taken, unfortunately. To finish off his birthday we went to an amazing restaurant in Glasgow called Coia’s, it’s pretty much become a tradition to go there for his birthday (because it’s so damn good). I had Calzone which was HUGE. I still managed to eat every single bit of it though haha! For dessert, we shared Sticky Toffee Pudding, which I’m sure you can tell was obviously delicious!
Hi all, I hope everyone is doing good.
I thought I would do an updated post on my current make up that I use everyday. I never really change up my make-up unless I’m feeling adventurous or a product runs out and I’m forced to buy something different.
I finally decided to buy the new Nars foundation, it’s called the All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation, what a long name haha. To be completely honest, I can’t really see that much of a big difference in comparison to Nars Sheer Glow, I used Sheer Glow for about 3 years and wanted to try the new one. The only thing I can tell you at the moment is that it is a lot more water-liquid based – it will run off your hand because the formula is so thin so make sure you put it onto your face using a brush, otherwise it will just look wet and clumpy. I got my normal shade Santa Fe, I do think I should have gone a shade lighter because the formulas are very different so I would recommend having a look at the shades at a Nars counter before buying your normal Sheer Glow shade. I bought mine online so I couldn’t do that, unfortunately. After I apply my base, I use Maybelline Anti-Age concealer in nude to conceal my under-eyes, I usually blend it into my skin using a Real Techniques beauty blender. I use Benefit Hoola bronzer but I forgot to include it as it was in my bag, haha. For blusher, I use my beloved Nars Orgasm blush which I have been a fan since forever! On my eyes, I use L’Oreal Super Liner in black, I’m definitely a fan of a winged liner and this is perfect for achieving that. For mascara, I use Lancome Grandiose mascara which is amazing for lengthening and volumising my lashes. My brows definitely need to be worked on because they’re so thin (karma will get the lady who ruined my brows lol). I use Benefits Brow Zings palette in medium, it’s lasted me at-least 2 years so it’s definitely worth getting your hands on. When I’ve applied the product to my brows, I add some brow gel using Brow Drama by Maybelline, just to set them in place.

At the weekend, my 2 friends and I had a sleepover at my friend Mel’s house. I know I’m 20 but you’re never too old for a sleepover, haha. Surprisingly, it was super hot in Glasgow on Saturday so of course the roof came down in Mel’s car and unfortunately, I was stuck in the back. Let me tell you, it is a fun but bad-hair time when you’re in a convertible on the Motorway! My goodness, I literally could not feel my hair afterwards nor could I see. Shotgun next time, haha! I took this photo because I thought I looked hilarious and it ended up being a pretty good one, lol. The second photo was taken after the M8 in Glasgow, I thought it was amazing, we were actually on the Erskine Bridge (if anyone knows what that is) and it was a perfect photo opportunity. This photo was also taken at the weekend in work, I never say no to a work mirror selfie, haha. I cannot get enough of my new culottes from Topshop, I think they make an outfit look so much more smart and put together. These are definitely one of my favourite purchases of 2015 so far.
Okay, okay I know I keep talking about my culottes but this is another way I have styled them. I tend to keep wearing them with just a casual jersey tee just to make it look more casual but in this outfit, I was a little more tanned so I wore my black and white Topshop bralet. I love this look because you can totally transform it from day to night, I could wear this outfit to work then head out for drinks straight after just by adding a pair of heels and a dark lip, sorted! I love wearing my waistcoat with this outfit because you know, everyone loves a waistcoat. Let me know what you think of this outfit down below!
Crop top, £20
Sandals, Primark £10
Hey guys, I thought I would do a chatty post updating you on what I’ve been doing. Apart from finishing uni almost two weeks ago (hallelujah), I’ve pretty much just been chilling out, when I can. I think the thing I enjoy most about uni is the summer break hahaha. Tonight, my friends and I went to see Unfriended. Hmmmm, it’s not worth your money – it’s so predictable it hurts, haha. Last week, my sister and I got a spray tan and afterwards, I bought my first ever Fuel smoothie/juice/drink whatever you want to call it and I loved it! As you can see, we also bought another one a few days later (obsessed). How cute are Casper and Buzz?! They’re honestly the cutest two dogs I’ve ever met. At the weekend, in work – my two friends and I all wore khaki and black outfits so of course it was the perfect photo opportunity. My sister and I joined the Blend Active party and I am so happy we did. We’ve made so many juices and smoothies since we bought it, I didn’t realise how expensive fruit was till now, haha. I’m hoping to be posting more on my blog now that uni has finished up but you never know, fingers crossed.
Take care guys!
Hey guys, this is another outfit of the day from last week. I wore this outfit to work simply because it’s super easy to fling on and it’s so comfy, too. I am still loving my ripped authentic jeans from Topshop, as you can see they’re completely shredded – the rips did not look like this when I first bought them, haha. You can definitely see more skin than you’re supposed to but I really love them and they are still the comfiest jeans I own. I will list all items down below. My shoes are of course, my new Primark sandals (these are all you’re gonna see on my blog for the next few months, haha). I wore my favourite shirt from Topshop, this khaki and black one is so comfy and I love the fit, it’s oversized but still looks really nice on the body. I also LOVE the quality of this shirt.
I hope you guys are all doing well.

Sandals are available to buy in-store.
Please excuse the bad toilet selfies but this is an outfit I wore to work yesterday, I was feeling a little more adventurous because I have a tan at the moment and that always makes you feel more confident. I am loving these sandals from Primark, they cost £10 so grab them whilst you still can! My jeans are my classic black Jamie’s from Topshop with the ripped knees, I love a good pair of black jeans because you can style them so many different ways. I recently bought this cute crop top from Topshop too which is so lovely and I can’t wait to wear it in the summer more, it only cost £20 which is a great buy. I love it so much because I think the neck line is super flattering. Lastly, because I didn’t feel confident enough to wear the crop top on its own (lol) so I flung on my black sleeveless waistcoat, I feel like I always wear this waistcoat but it’s so easy to fling on and it totally completes any outfit.
Hey guys, this is my outfit I wore to work yesterday and I’m super excited about these new sandals. I can’t wait to bring more colour into my wardrobe over the next couple months and these were my first step. I got these sandals from Primark for £10! Bargain, I know. I’m definitely going back to get the black pair, I’ll be able to wear them with so much more. I paired these sandals with my ripped mom jeans from ASOS and my old school Coca Cola tee from Topshop.
I hope you’re all well.
