OOTD | ASOS Thread and Needle Tulle Skirt

For a few weeks I had been on the hunt for a tulle skirt. I think after everyone saw Sarah Jessica Parker rock one we all had a secret love for them, but were very afraid to wear them ourselves. However after seeing a very established blogger wear this one from Thread and Needle and it did't look too bad, I knew I had to have it. After it being sold out on ASOS every time I looked, I finally went on there and they had a fresh batch in! I was so excited, had a mini heart attack and bought it as fast as I could. 
Now I wouldn't normally spend £55 on a skirt so close to the end of the month when I have no money but I couldn't not. This was like fate that the day I looked on ASOS is the day they had loads more in. However as soon as I put it in my basket it had sold out so I was very lucky. It was the best decision I have ever made and I wish I could wear it everyday! 
I was a bit apprehensive at first as it is a bit different, but I have received so many compliments while wearing it, I now feel very confident. I normally just wear it with a simple plain top as I want the skirt to be the main focus. I am not really saving it for special occasions I have worn it loads just out and about, and even to work. Here are a few photo's of me wearing it on holiday.

P.S. Would you wear a tulle skirt or do you think they are a bit too much?

Pure and Pose Mink Lashes

I am a lover of false eyelashes, I think they really set off a make up look and can make smaller eyes pop! Mink lashes are fairly new on the scene and I don't think many people, accept celebrities and make up artists, have bought into them yet. This might be because they are more expensive than normal false lashes, however this is because they much more premium and have many benefit. They are a lot lighter and can last up to 20 applications, whereas most false lashes you wouldn't wear more than 3 times. I am sold on Mink lashes and these ones by Pure&Pose* are a brilliant addition to my collection. 
Hello Summer Collection - Sale only £9.99
Dancing Queen
Th Hello Summer collection from Pure&Pose contains 2 sets of lashes. The ones in the above photo are the Dancing Queen lashes and they are my favorite out of the 3 sets I was sent. They are very similar to Mac's 35 lashes and look so girly. I love how they aren't too massive and although they very long it does have shorter bits to balance it out. I wouldn't normally go for this style but it's a bit different, makes your eyes look bigger, stand out and really feminine. They were easy to apply, not too heavy and seem like they will last a long time. 
Temptress
Now I had a bit of trouble with the Temptress lashes, which are the second set in the Hello Summer collection. Firstly getting them out of the box was a bit difficult so they stretched a bit, and a couple of hairs fell out. I then had to cut them down as they were too long which I have to do with all my lashes but when I did this loads of the hairs fell out at the same time. I am not sure if I just had a bad batch as none of the hairs fell out on the other 2 lashes so I might have just been unlucky. However I still applied them to see what they looked like. These ones were very long, a bit too long for me, but they still weren't too heavy. I couldn't wear them for hours but they looked good and I liked the style. I just think these were more suited for bigger eyes or people that like wearing really big lashes. 
Belle of the Ball - £19.99
I was excited to try the Belle of the Ball lashes as they are a little bit different to usual. They are quite small and subtle starting at the inner part but the outer is a lot thicker to give more of a feminine fluttery look. Some people like to just wear a few single false lashes on the outer part of their lids just to get that look so these lashes reflect that. It's a lot easier applying strip lashes than it is individual I can tell you! So these lashes just give a little bit more volume to your natural ones and a flirty sultry look at the end. Again these lashes are lightweight, good quality and will last you a long time, which explains the price tag on mink lashes. If you want to see what these lashes look like on then please watch my new video below.

Lots of love

At first I wasn't too sure about this BLUE lipstick I received from Colour Chase but I am secretly a little bit in love. I feel like an ice queen and just wish I was brave enough to wear it out!

Playboy Makeup

I was recently sent some samples of Playboy Makeup* to take part in their Pin Up Challenge. This is the first time I had come across Playboy make up but knowing what a massive brand they are, I was very excited to try. 
I was sent a sparkly bronze nail varnish in the shade Billionaire  a baby pink lipstick in Bubblegum Pink and a lengthening black mascara. First impressions were great, I love the glitzy boxes on the outside and the matte black packaging inside. I used these products for a make up look which you can see below. 
http://www.directcosmetics.com/icode/56535 £2.95
The nail varnish is good quality and easy to apply. I love a bit of glitter so with a few coats of this, it really adds a glamorous touch. You can use it on its own and add a couple of coats for a nice even colour or just use one coat over your favourite nail shade to add a bit of sparkle. 
www.directcosmetics.com/icode/56521 £3.95
The lipstick is extremely moisturising and creamy so is a dream to apply and doesn't feel at all drying. The light pink shade is quite light for my skin but I surprisingly liked it. Its gorgeously girly and even tastes like roses which is a nice little perk. 
The mascara is great for everyday looks, the wand really separates lashes so doesn't clump at all. With one quote it is quite subtle, but with a couple more it really defines and elongates the lashes for a beautiful pin up look. I personally prefer a mascara where a little more product comes on the wand to get a thicker look but this is perfect for no make up days.


Here is the look I created, let me know what you think. I am not sure where you can buy Playboy Makeup but I found a good selection on this website www.directcosmetics.com/browse. You can also check out their Twitter page and they will be more than happy to help twitter.com/PlayboyMakeupUK

Sunkissed Self-Tan Mousse

Right there's no beating about the bush here, I am just going to come right out and say it. Sunkissed Dark Self-Tan Mousse* is hands down the best fake tan I've ever tried! 

I literally have no bad words to say. Sunkissed self tan applies so smoothly and isn't streaky at all. It smells lovely and tropical like coconuts, which makes me feel a little bit more like I'm on holiday. Some of you will be glad to hear that it doesn't have that biscuit fake tan scent which everyone hates (although I secretly don't mind it). The colour is absolutely perfect, very natural and not orange at all. However the dark tan is very dark which is brilliant for me but if you have pale skin I would stick to the medium. Admittedly most days I cannot be bothered to apply fake tan, but I am so in love with the colour it leaves me, I actually want to apply it all the time!


https://www.sunkissedbronzing.co.uk/catalog/fake-tan/sunkissed-self-tan-mousse-dark-bronze-200ml £4.99
https://www.sunkissedbronzing.co.uk/catalog/fake-tan/sunkissed-application-mitt £3.99

Another great thing about this tan is that it lasts for days and doesn't come off in patchy places. Sunkissed tan is a winner for me and I will definitely be buying lots more bottles when I run out. I know you can't think it can get much better but wait until you hear about the price. You can buy it in Superdrug for £3.99 and I saw it in Primark at the weekend for £2.90, which I had to really resist myself from buying as I still have loads in the bottle. 

Sorry about the unflattering photo of my legs but can you believe the colour

If your a lover of fake tan then you definitely need to give this one a go. You can purchase it online on the Sunkissed website here www.sunkissedbronzing.co.uk.

Thanks for reading

P.S. I am going on holiday next week so I'm not sure about what the blogging situation might be yet. But hopefully I will pick up a good natural tan!
