I think I’m slowly getting my blogging mojo back! Yeahhhh! I think we all go through a little bit of a slump and I just felt everything I was posting was utter pants. I wasn’t finding the time to take photographs and when I did have the time I kinda just wanted to sit and watch Greys Anatomy all day. Seriously, I love Grey’s Anatomy and have cained series 1 or 2 in around 2 weeks but it’s taking over my life. Is there Grey’s Anatomy rehab anywhere?
I digress. In my Grey’s Anatomy addiction I have managed to find a cheeky holiday for a few days to Majorca with my girl pals. I’ve never been on a girl holiday before and I seriously can’t wait. It’s gonna be all the catching up, Sangria, sunshine and just plain girls just wanna have fun. We debated going to Ibiza for all of 2 minutes before we realised that we needed to calm the hell down and we’re nearly 26 and don’t like clubbing. For someone who’s wardrobe is 99.9% black, grey and navy I find summer super hard. I went shopping with my Mum for her summer holiday the other day and I realised my Mum embraces colour more than me. So, since then I’ve been searching for holiday buys to keep my eye on for the past few months and it is still dark colour and it’s about as summery as a girl gets.
1. NARS Tinter Moisturiser – £29.00 2. Zara City Bag in Tan – £39.99 3. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen – £5.50 4. Fat Face Mabel Batik Fish Dress – £35.00 5. New Look Stone Rope Straw Hat – £9.74 6. Old English Co Make Up Pouch – £12.95
I added a few beauty buys in there. I usually don’t bother with make up aboard except my eyeliner and mascara. But, as I’ve grown older I feel the need to look after my skin a bit more. Before, I was all that I need to tan and be a bronzed goddess but with me, it ain’t gonna happen. So, I’m soon to welcoming this little cutie into my make up bag. NARS tinted moisturisers are the one and this one has SPF 30 in there. Perfect for warm days and keeping my face protected.
I’ve been lusting after this bag forever since spotting it on Hannah Gale’s blog. It just seems the perfect size, especially considering it’s a shoulder bag. Personally, I prefer it in the tan colour because it’s one way to really incorporate colour into my black wardrobe. It’s definetely getting added into the basket soon.
I’m getting more and more into lip products and this beautiful Copenhagen shade is just an all round winner. The reviews I’ve read on NYX is that it’s one of the best bargain lip products. I love the colour and even though it;s a berry shade, I think it could still look great in the summer. I’m getting my hands on it as soon as I next head into town!
If FatFace could provide my whole wardrobe, I’d be one happy lady. If there was ever a shop that did my kinda clothes, it’s them. However, it is a little pricey at times. The Fatface products I’ve owned in the past have always been really good quality and I’ve always loved them. This little dress in no exception and would be perfect for a beer garden date with sandals. I’m not a huge fan of whacking all the flesh out so this is right up my street.
I bought a black fedora as an emergency hat when my hair went mental a few months back and I’ve never gone back. I’m lucky that I’ve always managed to suit a hat but just stopped wearing them when I went to Uni. In college, I wouldn’t have been seen without a hat; I was that greebo kid with the hats and I love it and miss it. This gem from New Look is an all round summer hat – I love it. Perfect for keeping the sun off my face but adding a touch of summer to an outfit. It’d look perfect with any outfit when I’m sipping on my sangria in the Med heat.
Finally, this was the product which inspired me to do this list. I absolutely love it and need it in my life immediately. It’s so cute and it just makes me giggle when I see. I love pretty much everything on the Old English Co website and it’s my go-to for people’s gifts when they are celebrating special occasions. Seriously, I’d decorate my whole house with their prints and cushions. It’s the perfect travelling size for all my travelling make up. If anyone wants to purchase me this, I’ll just love them forever and ever. Thanks.
So at the mo, that’s exactly what I’m lusting after. A few of these are gonna be bought on pay day (I’m looking at you NYX) and other, I’m gonna watch. If anyone has any suggestions on some more late summer clothes that aren’t super bright, hook me up!
