OOTD & New Shoe Loving!

Sorry for the lack of posts, I have been extremely busy with UCAS related nightmares and A2 coursework, but the Christmas holidays are fast approaching and I plan to blog my heart out over them to keep me sane whilst revising for mocks. Less of the excuses- I'M BACK and I have a new pair of boots to share with you and I think I may actually be in love.
these are the booties or should I say beauties I mentioned. They were also a bargain at £22.99, I got them for even less though (hallelujah for student discount) with there low price and my black ankle boot obsession, I physically could not stop myself. Not only are they absolutely perfect for staring at and drooling over they're also ridiculously comfy to walk in.

I thought since I was so in love with these boots it would be rude not to style them and post a cheeky OOTD. I chose to keep things simple as it was a Sunday and my only plans were a Sunday lunch with my family. As always you'll have to bear with/ignore my horrific posing and off putting facial expressions,

Make Up Revolution Lipsticks Review & Swatches

For the past few weeks I have seen nothing, but Make Up Revolution products all over instagram so I thought it was about time I saw what the fuss is about. Being a lip product junkie I thought it was only right I started with the lipsticks, so I took a trip to Superdrug and the rest is  history. When in Superdrug I was amazed by the wide range of shades and the best was yet to come I noticed they were only £1!!! and naturally grabbed every shade my local Superdrug had in stock.

Overall I am ridiculously impressed by these lipsticks and I can definitely see myself buying more. The matte shades are slightly drying, but nothing a lip balm cannot fix. The shades I have wore have had such good staying power and have lasted a majority of the day. The smell kind of reminds me of the MUA lipsticks, a light slightly coco-nutty scent which I have to admit am rather fond of. The packaging isn't great but for the price I am definitely not complaining. There will be plenty more £1 lipsticks coming my way!

The Jacket Edit

With winter fast approaching it's getting ridiculously cold. I find this time of year rather awkward because its not quite cold enough for a coat, but too cold for a cardigan. I will be showing you a few of the jackets I have recently been loving.

       The Trench
        From: Zara 
I believe a trench coat is a timeless, classic wardrobe essential. Perfect for all occasions and the British autumn/early winter time.

The Bomber
From: Dorothy Perkins
A bomber jacket is the quickest and easiest way to add a touch of sports luxe cool to any outfit.

It's So Fluffy, I'm Gonna Die!
From: Primark
I absolutely love experimenting with textures and I'm rather partial to anything that is soft and fluffy, so after seeing this jacket on instagram I practicially ran to Primark.

The Duster
From: New Look(link)
A duster coat is the perfect way to make any outfit smart casual whilst still nailing one of this seasons main trends. I just cannot get enough of this one from New Look.

From: Random shop in Germany a couple of years ago and also conveniently has no tags in it.
A denim jacket is definitely one of the most simple wardrobe basics that goes with everything.
