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.

Products I’ve Finished – Spring 2015

Products I’ve Finished

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.

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.

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.

What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag? – July 2014

What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag?

July 2014

So, now that I’m back from Portugal (I wish I was still there), I thought I’d do an updated What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag post. My makeup collection has expanded a lot since I done my Spring What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag post from my trip to Paris. And also since I went for two weeks, I took a fairly sizeable chunk of it with me.

For face and eye products I used this sturdy, see through bright green bag, which I got from WH Smith and is technically supposed to be a pencil case, but it worked brilliantly for makeup.

So the last post in my makeup collection series is about all my lip products. This is by far the largest part of my collection.
