15 Again: A Makeup & Outfit OTD

Good morning!

How’s everyone doing today? What are we doing today? I’m listening to the San Junipero soundtrack and crying. So it goes.

Sharing with you a lil makeup and outfit of the day on this beautiful July day. This was on a cooler day than today, otherwise I would be sweating my butt off. Especially because I was sat in a car for two hours on this day! Okay, maybe I still sweat my butt off. So it goes.

Does the title confuse you? Yeah, me too. Just kidding; I wrote it. Want some context?

Basically, I’ve never really fallen into a particular clothing “style”. You may have seen this already from the eclectic range I’ve provided for you on this here blog. And by “eclectic range” I mean, “mish-mash of no taste”.

I’m always envious of people who have true style, their own look. You know? The ones who you are always going to know what variation of something they’ll be wearing, and who rock their look down to a tee. I think the closest I am to this is “black leggings”.
Look, I’m basic. I fucking love a pair of black leggings. Once I stopped giving a shit about whether I was “too fat” to wear them, I realised the comfort I had been denying myself for years. You know? Cos fat girls are meant to look either ultra femme or ultra butch. We can’t put on sweatpants and messy buns and have it be a lewk like the skinny folks can.

Anyway. There was a time before that in-betweeny I hate my body time and now where I didn’t care what I looked like and just wore what I like. I guess back then there would be times I would try to conform in my own way, some ways I wanted to be like my friends and my sister, and other ways in which I didn’t want to be like anyone. So sometimes I had some weird outfits. But there was an overall go-to for me: a band/rock-looking tee with jeans and converse.

That’s what I thought made me look cool. Do you wanna see how desperately uncool I was?

There you are. Bask in me in my weird 15 year-old glory. I’m also wearing tights under those jeans. Lord knows why.

Anyway that’s the context. I never did fine that one style, and now I’m kind of coming to terms with that. Much like my music taste, I can never settle for listening to one thing exclusively, I’m trying to not look one way exclusively.

I’ve talked too much. Here we go.

I’m gonna be real with you here guys: I genuinely think I’ve had these converse since I was about 15 too. If you don’t wear them every day, these shoes fucking last mate. Well, for me they have. My husband has big ole size 12 feet and he walks out Converse in 3 months.

The one thing that is different compared to being 15, is being able to actually do half-decent makeup (though I still can’t do my hair).

And there you have it. Here’s my 26 year-old attempt at recapturing a little “don’t fuck with me” attitude of over a decade ago. And I didn’t even look like that all the time. I wish I had looked like this when I was 15.

What did you look like when you were 15? How has your style changed? Let me know!

Until next time 😉

Spring Days: Makeup and Outfit of the Day

Good morning people 🙂


Today I’m sharing with you my outfit and makeup from yesterday when I was out and about in my friend’s neck of the woods.

Yesterday was beautifully sunny, but there was a chill in the air and I think all 3 of us were slightly underdressed for the weather. Regardless, it was a Britain with SUNSHINE which obviously means we got ice cream and hung out at the park anyway.


It was so nice to be out and about in a new place as Emmie and I spend most of our time either in the house, or walking the same routes in our area. And it was also nice to see my bestie as she starts a new job in London today & I’ll only get to see her every so often 😔


Throwback: here’s us 10 years ago:


(I promise you she has eyes!)

Anyway I was feeling pretty strong and powerful yesterday after listening to Lemonade 🍋🐝 and when I feel that way I tend to go for coppery and burgundy shades.

I apologise as I’m having to do this post on my mobile today & it’s being quite slow so I’m having trouble getting links up for you guys. Most of my makeup deets with links can be found in previous posts.

So without further ado here’s my deets:


Leggings: Tu at Sainsburys (16-18) | Jumper: Forever 21+ (2x – old stock: truly sorry as this jumper is AMAZING) | Choker: Primark


Foundation: No7 Instant Radiance (43 Calico) | Concealer: No7 Match Made (Calico) | Blusher: Pantone Universe | Eyebrows:L’Oreal Paris Brow Artist Genius Kit & Plumper | Mascara: No7 Intense Volume (Black) | Highlighter: Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter (Golden Lights) | Eyeshadow: Makeup Revolution Parental Advisory Palette | Lips: Pantone Universe Lipstick

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Park Times – Makeup and Outfit of the Day

Screen Shot 2016-04-23 at 13.02.12.png

Happy Saturday beautiful people!

Today was another early start for us. With Ell off work today we decided to take advantage of the nice weather and head to the park. Today I am feeling very ~ pink ~ (not sure if you could tell!)

I am such a morning person, and I always think it’s nice to get up and out the house before some people have even woken up, then by afternoon I can just sit and chill out in the knowledge that I have been in some way productive. Obviously that doesn’t always happen, and some days we don’t even change out of our pajamas, but still it’s nice to get out the house every so often. Especially on beautiful days like this.

Leggings: Tu at Sainsbury’s (16-18 but they do up to size 30)
Shoes: As yesterday

I’ve been experimenting with eyeshadow again!

Makeup:

Foundation: No7 Instant Radiance (43 Calico)
Concealer: No7 Match Made (Calico)
Blusher: Pantone Universe (I think I need to get a darker blush soon as this takes so much to even show up a little on me)
Eyebrows:L’Oreal Paris Brow Artist Genius Kit & Plumper
Mascara: No7 Intense Volume (Black)
Highlighter: Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter (Golden Lights)
Eyeshadow:  Makeup Revolution Makeup Geek Palette 
Lips: L’Oreal Paris Infallible (Timeless Rose – L’Oreal have been making these for years and they are actually my favourite day-to-day liquid lipsticks)

My kin is still very dry at the minute and I’m trying to remedy that as best I can. I actually went used my old skincare routine last night instead of my Micellar Water and moisturiser, as I’ve been using recently, and it felt worse when I woke up this morning. Another win for the Micellar Water!

Hope you’re all having a lovely day – go out and play!
