Take a look at all the beautiful bikinis on Asos, I love a website that has different brands all in one place, it allows me to then specify where I want to look harder. What do you girls think of these different styles? I have no idea what works best for my body so I want to try lots and see what works for me. It is the weekend soon, so I might head to the spa or pool for a swim, but I can’t do that without a swimming costume, so shopping it is xx
Today I started to think more about make up, my cousin is getting married in the summer and has asked if I wanted someone to do my makeup for me (I am one of the bridesmaids eeekkk), do I want that? Or can I do it myself? I once got my makeup done but it was so basic all I could think was that I would rather have spent the money on something else and just put on some lipstick on my own but with this new world of contouring, blending and baking would it be silly to miss up on the opportunity to get someone to do what looks best for me? I am not awful at make up, but then again I wear the basics and that’s easy enough to learn, I have never tried anything more intricate because I just down own the tools or colours to do so. I want to learn, I want to do more but for me right now I can’t justify spending the money I want to on makeup when I have so much to save for and think about. The second question is do you go for more high end makeup or do lower costing makeup do the same job? I have started watching Ladylike Buzz feed (linked the video below) and this was one of the questions they asked and showed what they thought, after watching that I am really questioning how much money should be spent for full coverage for a whole day and where from. I love mac lipstick of course but I cannot justify the animal testing they use, it disgusts me and if I want to make small changes that make a difference, using makeup that is cruelty free is super important, but there is so so much to think about… My head hurts.
So number one, things I do not own (I added pictures of pretty ones, visual aids help everyone):
Eye shadow- I have one very small palette for the last 5 years which has like 4 colours in so I don’t think that counts. Shop image Here.
Baking stuff- honestly I don’t even know what that is.. let me do some research. Ohhh it is a translucent setting powder that decreases wrinkles, creases and leaves you with a flawless finish plus brightens your face. Shop image Here.
I actually probably need a whole new makeup kit but this is a good start, I was never big on makeup as a child and so never learnt the techniques and tricks but that is about to change so I hope you follow me on my journey on whether I can learn to do my makeup myself or have to pay a professional when it comes to the wedding. This is about finding makeup that lasts, works for me and is cruelty free/ environmental xx
I have been dreaming about where I am going on holiday and what I am going to wear, I absolutely love swimwear but I don’t know if I have ever had one that makes me super comfy and look good. What are your favourite swimwear companies? When I am closer to going away and have a little more money I am going to buy a few so that I have a lot of cute outfits for the beach, I am so excited! I cannot wait, what are all your plans for the summer? xx
Today has been fun, I woke up with Adi this morning to go into the city as he had an interview and I wanted to take lots of pictures of the cute snow, however I found it is very difficult when it becomes very windy and you can hardly stand without being frozen so I hid at a coffee shop and waited. Afterwards we went to have sushi and then Adi went to work and I came home before I leave for work tonight. For some reason I am exhausted, I was going to just have a rest and woke up 2 and a half hours later.. I have no idea how or why I slept so long, I had already slept 9 hours last night but feel exhausted again. I need to work out what I am doing wrong that is making me so sleepy, I assume I am missing something in my diet but try to eat and healthy and mixed diet every day, what do you all think? xx
Have you seen that Kendall and Kylie have brought out their own fashion line? With their flawless looks and high stance in the fashion world you can imagine that the clothes resemble exactly that, I have been looking through it and of course it is eye catching, different and memorable.. exactly what you want when you are a sass queen. But what about the prices? I heard they were a bit of the upper side, but really $595 for a jacket? That seems a little extreme to me! It is called DropOne and I have put the link below but here are a few items I like myself. It is a quirky style but I must be honest, unless the material is amazing and super good for you I do think I can find some of this stuff at a cheaper budget.
What are your views? Do the name make a difference to you, do you think it’s a bit extortionate or does it make sense that if you want the label you pay the price? xx
