FOTD #5 - Everyday Makeup

MAC Studio Fix // MAC Eyebrow pencil in 'spiked' // Maybelline master precise liquid eyeliner // MUA eyeliner in 'snow white' // Mally volumizing mascara // MAC blush in 'sincere' // MAC blot powder in ' medium dark'. 

Hello, Hi.
Every morning my alarm clock rings, 3 snooze buttons later I struggle to get out of bed please tell me you do this too? Usually I keep my make up pretty minimal in the winter mornings as the drop in temperature really doesn't give me a creative start to the day, however this morning I had a burst of energy, so whilst the mood is set I thought I'll share my creativity with you.

I've gone with the signature winged eye liner and my trusty MAC 'sincere' bronzer, it really does leave my face looking warm and smooth even on a bad day. I'm all for a dewy look but as my t-zone tends to get a oily through out the day, I just touch it up with MAC's blot powder to mattify certain areas, let me know below what you prefer.. dewy vs matte?
I do have a slightly new addition to my everyday make up routine, that being the MUA's snow white eyeliner. I place this on my lower lash line to really open up my eyes, especially for those early mornings when the matchsticks just aren't doing the trick! I find it's a great contrast with the black liquid liner and I've had quite a few compliments on it, so if you haven't already praps give it a go? 

Also I've had a real bad time with my lashes, the cause? I wish I knew. So I've gone back to my 'Mally' mascara, and it made me question why I ever stopped using it! Thank the lord my blinkers are back on the mend, us girls swap and change things when we've already got a pretty good solution, again please tell me I'm not the only one?

Hope your having a great week so far, Friday tomorrow which means it's almost the weekend so get your skyscraper heels out!! 

What's your everyday make up look?

If you wanted to dress this look up, add some fluttery falses and a colour popping shade of lipstick and your Saturday night ready.

OOTN #7 - The only thing I'm missing is a black guitar, hey baby I'm ROCKSTAR!

Jacket: Republic // Top: Asos // Bottoms&Heels: RiverIsland // Necklace: Regal Rose. 

Hello, Hi.
Just a quick OOTN post, I'm styling my new blazer which I picked up in the sales a few weeks ago. I'm currently really loving black on white parings, and I know this is where some people will say it looks boring, dull and hard to style but I personally think it looks super smart and I defiantly feel fresh wearing it. I've put on my favourite black wedges not just to make my legs appear longer but to add a sexy edge to the outfit too, and believe me girls they are much easier to walk in than they probably look.

As much as I'm a girlie girl and love my pinks, sparkles and all things pretty, I do also love that rockchick vibe from the spiked jewellery/accessories to the rocking red lippy! So there we have a quick post on how I'd style black on white I really hope you like this outfit, let me know what you think?

Do you like styling with just black&white or do you find it dull?

Belated Orange Wednesdays - Paranormal Activity 4

Hello, Hi.
Last night I finally braved the film 'Paranormal Activity 4'. If your stupid like me and love a scary film but also sit there covering your eyes whilst your friend explains what's going on then you can imagine the fright but anticipation in me and my friend last night. I had heard quite a few bad reviews about the film and hesitated about going to see it but as I had seen the past three 'Paranormal Activity' films and the fact of it being Orange Wednesdays (2for1) I thought what the hell, LETS GO!! 

It was super jumpy and I was constantly on edge waiting for something to scare me, but that's all part of it right?? Me and my friend Chloe peered through our fingers towards the end as I'm sure you'll guess it was the scariest bit, it was quite funny as the entire cinema was giggling at the fact we all said 'ahh I can't watch this bit' at the same time, but I personally really enjoyed the film and defiantly think it's worth a watch.. So if you haven't already, brave it up girl ;) But don't sleep alone after!!

Would you watch a scary film at the cinema? Have you seen Paranormal Activity??
