This is basically an Autumn look.

I'm normally so boring with my eyes, i'll just use a neutral colour and whack on some eyeliner and mascara and that'll be it, but I've been getting inspired by all the Autumn theemed videos and posts that I thought i'd try something different with my eyes, and I actually really like it!
It's nothing crazy like an intense smoky eye, because I would look like I'd been attacked.. Just a little bit of colour on the lids with some blending action. And the lips is just perfecto, love getting to wear these shades again!

Base
Revlon Colorstay Foundation
Rimmel Wake me up Concealer
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
MUA Bronze Shimmer Kiss
Bourjois Blush in 34 Rose D'or

Eyes
Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and on bronze
MUA Undressed Palette, Shade 2 for the base, Shade 4 all over & Shade 10 in the corner.
Miss Sporty Waterproof Eye liner for anyone struggling with getting eye liner right, I recommend watching this video.
Maybelline The Rocket Mascara

Brows
MUA Matte Eyeshadow in Chestnut
Maybelline Brow Tint Mascara

Lips
Revlon Balm Stain in 005 Crush, I used this as as liner.
Rimmel Starry Eyed lipstick.

That's it really, super easy.

Shoes - Primark

Obviously, these were taken in Brighton, and having to edit them earlier made me super sad, really wish I didn't have to come home! I got this top the day I got paid, I'd been wanting it for months, and because I did a lot of over time, I thought I'd treat myself! It was £40 (eeek.) which I don't think I've ever spent on a top... But it's so beautiful, and it always broke my heart to walk away from it. These jeans were my work jeans, but I decided to rip holes in the knees, because i'm so edgy. (jokes.)

Super sorry about the over exposed or dark photos, the sun was having one of those days when it couldn't decide if it wanted to stay out, or hide behind clouds. I love these shoes, they're awesome, they were a pain to break in (dead feet.) but now they're comfy I wear as much as I can, cause they're interesting to look at, and I think they honestly go with any outfit, so i'm happy I didn't give up on them. And the top jumpery thing is just super comfy, I literally just live in these sort of things atm.

Fire Ombre.

 photo DSC_0393_small_zps99eea2fe.jpg  photo DSC_0398_small_zps8be7f30e.jpg I'd been going backwards and forwards for months over the idea of going red. It's something that I'd always gone back to back in the day, but for the past few years I've stuck to my natural brown, because it took soo long to get it back to normal without a red tinge. But it was something I kept thinking about and the only thing that was putting me off was just getting it back to brown when I get bored of it. But I figured if I'm going to think about it as much as I was, I may as well just do it, and deal with the dilemma when it comes!
But I love it, I didn't realise how much I missed having red hair! I used the Live color XXL in Radiant Red. And for me to keep my ombre and blend it in, I just back combed it when it came to applying it near the blonde, easy peasy. Do you like?

Bag - Accessorize
Lipstick - Rimmel Starry eyed

You have no idea how excited I was to throw on an outfit like this, it's been too hot for the past couple of months to get away with this sort of outfit, but as it's started to cool off a bit, i've been sneaking the odd bit of jumpers and darker colours back out again. I did stick out like a soar thumb, because everyone else is still in there summer get up, but I'm not bothered. It's so funny how I feel more like myself just from changing how I'm dressing. I was honestly smiling so much the other day because I could wear a jumper, skirt and black tights, the little things I guess..

This week..
My buddys birthday.
Wearing hawaiian shirts.
Going rowing down the river.
PRET WRAPS.
Starbucks Mocha frappuccino.
My day off work, the main thing I'm looking forward to is wearing my actual clothes.

Sorry about the misserable face in most of these, it was a pretty hot day. I can't deal with heat. (soz)
Anyways I've tried being a bit more adventurous with this hot weather and experimenting a bit with different outfits, I did kind of fall into the habit of 'Smock dresses all day every day' which is still great, but it wasn't that inspiring.
Wearing a white top was so odd for me, I didn't feel like myself and was tempted to wear something else, but I stuck it out, and this is now probably one of my favourite summer outfits. I've also tried getting used to going bare leg, which I used to hate but when it's this hot, it's either sizzle or ditch the tights, and I'm actually feeling good about it, I'm slowly making these little changes to embrace this weather a little bit.
I'm still counting down the days to Autumn so I can get my layering back on though, you can't take the sweater out of the girl. Never ever.
