Hey lovelies!!

Annoyingly the weather on this day was, once again, overcast so I look terribly pale, but hey what can you do? I actually quite liked how the pictures turned out - there was a slight edginess to them which meant that they fitted in with the vibe that I was trying to attract.

This post was originally inspired by a bunch of Fall Out Boy songs that I was and still am really obsessed with, especially the one called 'Phoenix'. The rock music genre is one of my favourites and I have somehow always channeled the all-black outfits that are so commonly associated with the many rock/punk/alternative figures in today's society. Oddly enough, my two consecutive days of wearing all-black led to me sinking deeper into the darker shades of the colour spectrum and choosing the Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick in 'Sepia' to vamp up an otherwise basic outfit.

I must say that dark lip colours can be quite intimidating to wear but it's honestly how you incorporate it into your makeup look that makes all the difference. The key is to keep your eyes simple and allow the lips to do the talking, although that doesn't mean you have to be too basic - you can still rock those gorgeous lashes and eyeliner with a dark, bold lip so there's no need to panic!

I hope that you have taken some inspiration from this beauty post and try out a dark liquid lipstick like 'Sepia' soon, it's truly worth it!


P.S. Let me know in the comment section down below if you're into rock music and if so, what artists and/or bands are you loving at the moment? I can't wait to hear about your favourites!

Hey lovelies!

I am well aware of the fact that it looks like I'm trying to cling onto whatever is left of Summer and, although it may be true, there is no doubt about my excitement for the new season, I mean hello Autumn fashion!

Now, in all honesty, I initially wanted this post to centre around one of the extremely comfortable bikinis I purchased for my holiday but, once the pictures had been uploaded, I soon came round to the idea that this post would most likely become one full of beauty inspiration. I'm not mad about it though because I love gold eyeshadow more so than the average makeup lover and I am beyond obsessed with the gorgeous golden glow you're left with when you return from a sun-filled holiday.

I live for any and every opportunity to bronze my face beyond belief either to maintain my tan or at least fake it before anyone realises that my tan has actually faded and I'm as pale as Snow White...yes, it's very unfortunate. Nevertheless, this post will act as reminder for me of what once was and will hopefully offer you lovely people with some inspiration to stay glowy and bronzed for as long as physically possible, after all, that highlighted effect is not going out of style!

I hope that you're all having an amazing weekend, speak soon my loves!!
