Outfit of the Day – Warm Summer Christening

Outfit of the Day

Warm Summer Christening

The weather has been quite strange this summer where I live. One week I was wearing a jumper in the office, the next I was in a summer dress and sandals. It’s been humid and cloudy, we’ve had brilliant sunshine, we’ve had torrential rain. And I never really know what to wear to Christening’s anyway. I wanted to be dressy and look good, but it also needed to be respectable enough for Church.

Spring 2015

Okay, so this is a collective Products I’ve Finished post from March, April and May 2015. I’m not going to waffle too much here, because there’s rather a lot to get through. I never seem to realise just how much stuff I use until I lay it out in front of me.

Outfit of the Day – Hen Party Night Out

Outfit of the Day

Hen Party Night Out

So it was my sister’s Hen Party the other weekend and I wanted to do a quick Outfit of the Day post to share what I wore when we went out on the night. We went to the Dreamboys show at Leeds and then stayed in the nightclub there, so we all got dressed up.

Products I’ve Finished – February 2015

Products I’ve Finished

February 2015

I’ve got a handful of things which I’ve finished in February to share today. There’s a load of things that I want to buy and to try, but I’m determined to finish some of the products I already own before hand. I love doing my Products I’ve Finished posts, there is often such a feeling of accomplishment when I have finished a product!

Products I’ve Finished – December 2014 & January 2015

Products I’ve Finished

December 2014 & January 2015

So as I mentioned in my last Nails of the Month post, I’ve been having major computer and internet issues since the middle of December, and it’s still patchy now. I’m trying to post once a week, but no promises. And due to those problems my latest Products I’ve Finished post is a combined post for both December and January. And due to that as I dug through my empties bag a lot of the things in there came as a surprise, I’d completely forgot that I’d finished them!

Haul – Boots, Zara, Next, Fenwick and Candy Hero

Haul

Boots, Zara, Next, Fenwick and Candy Hero

It seems like a while since I’ve done a haul post, but this is the result of a shopping trip with my mum and sister the other week to York. We also went out for a really nice lunch while we were there and had an amazing time. I’m considering doing an Outfit of the Day post from this trip, let me know if you’d be interested. I did buy some Christmas presents, but these are the things I bought for myself. Quite a few of them I am classing as essentials. I think I’ve mentioned before but I’m in need of an entirely new winter wardrobe. I’m down to only two decent pairs of jeans and don’t have many smart casual tops which are decent to be seen in public with, most of the one’s I was wearing last winter are now so worn that they’re relegated to the lazy days spent curled up wearing only zone.

Winter Beauty Tag

November 2014

So I saw this on the lovely Katie’s Blog at Plus+ Beauty and thought it looked like loads of fun. If you haven’t seen Katie’s blog then you really need to go and check it out, it’s awesome!

1. What’s your go-to moisturiser this winter?

I don’t really have anything in particular. I’m currently loving the Body Shop Body Butters. I’m using the Passion Fruit one at the moment.

Lip Gloss Review – Lovely Girl 9

Lip Gloss Review

Lovely Girl – 9

I’ve found myself reaching for this lip gloss a lot this autumn and I decided it was time that I shared it. This is a cool toned bright pink lip gloss from the brand Lovely Girl and I believe it is in the shade 9, it doesn’t appear to have a name. I got this in Portugal when I was there on holiday this summer, so I don’t know much about the brand and can’t really find much online, but I believe this lip gloss only cost around €2 at the very most.

Lipstick Review – Rimmel London As You Want Victoria

Lipstick Review

Rimmel London – As You Want Victoria

I went on a major lip product kick this summer, largely influenced by my sister, and this was one of my purchases. I’ve finally got around to actually using it and I had to share my thoughts on it. I’ll be perfectly honest, I only really bought this product because of the name, since obviously, my name is Victoria. As You Want Victoria is from Rimmel London’s Moisture Renew Lipstick line, which I think were re-released or re-formulated about this time last year. They’re the ones in the purple tubes. I didn’t pay any attention to them last year until I came across it this summer and got excited because it includes my name.

Products I’ve Finished – September 2014

Products I’ve Finished

September 2014

I’ve been on a huge must finish a load of half used up products by the end of the year kick recently and I’ve done really well. The result? This Products I’ve Finished post is going to be epic. I’ve used up so many products this month that I barely know where to start. But I really do need to get through some of the products which are cluttering up my shelf. Mainly because a) it’ll save me money in the run up to Christmas and b) I’ll probably get new products as Christmas gifts. And as you’ll see from this post, I’m still using up last years Christmas gifts!
