So this is my first fashion/beauty post.
I don’t claim to be a fashion guru or even a MUA for that matter (which you can clearly see by my room in the background lol!), but they are both things that I enjoy #discoveringdifference in.
My cousin recently called me up asking if she could borrow some of my clothes for her evening out in London. Of course she asked for the item that every girl dreads to hear: a nice top. I know we have all been a victim of saying that at least some point in our lives, usually when we are going out for dinner. It’s a bit like those killer heels we impulsively buy telling ourselves that they would be perfect for a classy, sit-down meal because they can’t hurt if we are sitting down!
The “nice top” conversation usually tends to go as follows..
What are you planning to wear tonight?
A nice top & jeans, you?
Yeah same. Don’t know what kind of top yet though.
I explained to her that I don’t know why she came to me because I feel like I don’t own very many, where she turned & said “but your Instagram pictures are always nice” hahaha!
This is when it occurred to me that no matter what you think about yourself, social media can really be deceiving lol so I thought why not share my fashion & beauty finds on my blog?
Here is what I put together for a meal in Shoreditch (shock!) which I unfortunately only got to show off in A & E due to my clumsy boyfriend injuring himself lol. Nevertheless, you can still see the details below:
Top: Pretty Little Thing (here)
Jeans: New Look (here)
Boots: River Island (similar here)
As I said I don’t claim to be a MUA, but I struggle with a serious case of oily skin syndrome so I love experimenting with products to see what can tackle the beast.
