Pastel Hair inspiration from Pinterest

Lately Pinterest has become one of my favourite Apps.. how did I not know about this before? 
anyway I have about 8 boards that I save my inspirations and ideas too. one of them is Hair and Make up.. I wanted to share some of these with you, tell me what you think and what your favourites are? 

These are all pastel shades that I love but unfortunately do not think I would be able to pull off or even be brave enough!


Lilac is literally my favourite colour in every single way.. I have lilac clothes, lilac nail polish, lilac shoes, underwear, socks the lot! I love lilac so this is un deniably a hair colour I will always love! 


I found this picture today when I searched for lilac hair and wow I think I'm in love with the two tones of baby blue and lilac.. this Is such a pretty mix of the two!


And finally the Pale Pastel pink. I am pretty sure Katy Perry has rocked all of these colours and maybe even Kylie Jenner, whats your thoughts on these? 



What the boyfriend Hates and Rates.

Something a lot of girls wonder is would my boyfriend like this outfit? and what are his actual thoughts on current trends.. 

Well I am going to ask my partner himself his opinions on 5 trends both in fashion and make up, because sometimes we need a mans perspective on what we are wearing and looking like. As girls we see things differently to what they see, obviously every man probably has a difference of opinion on fashion and make up on women.. and a lot probably really do not care but here is what my boyfriend thinks on the following.. 


1. Bright lipsticks

' don't really like them and you look like you're attention seeking '


2. Embroidered Jeans

' They're nice but they're to brave for me to buy them for you.. they either look great or they look awful e.g. stolen from your nan '


3. Sheer Body Suits

' Its a time and a place outfit e.g. holiday, not dinner with your parents. '


4. Cut Crease

' First of all .. ' I don't get it what's different' .. so now I'm showing him the difference between the two..  and all he says is ' its a bit in your face, so we're moving on. Now he's added he can see why I would like it as it looks like you've actually tried with your make up  '


5. Culottes 

' Apart from having a stupid name, I like them, they're alright.. A bit hippy and wouldn't keep you warm in the winter, quite nice in the summer though.  '


So there it is .. his chance to voice his opinion, let me know what you think and if you'd like to see more like this? 


3 Fashion Trends I do not rate


I thought I would do a post on trends I really do not rate this year so far. It's now April 2017 so this fashion trends up until now!  Trends come and go but some of them just stick around whereas some of them really should not.

Here are just a few that I personally think shouldn't stick around or be apart of 'The Fashion Trend'.

 1. Ring Chokers. 


Personally I think that chokers ( in some styles ) can really glam up an outfit or just give that extra something to jazz it up! The ring chokers are just not one of those in my eyes, to be honest I think they look like an animals collar with a hoop for the lead or even something that'd be used on 50 Shades of Grey.

2. Over use of Frills and Ruffles. 


This is just one trend that I really do not understand, I personally do not see what ruffles and frills do for you? especially when so many are used! I have to admit I do have a cute little top which has one ruffle which leads into a bell sleeve but its so simple I think it works. So I do not mind a subtle frill but when it's unmissable its a no no in my eyes. 

3. Ripped in the wrong places jeans.


Now to me this is just wrong, whenever I look at these I just think to myself.. Why? and for what reason would you want rips in those places? I can appreciate they could probably work at a festival but I just do not rate them myself.

Thanks for reading xo 

Festival Fever

Its getting to that time of year where Festival season is on everyones minds. A time of year where everyone lets loose and pulls out all the fashion and make up stops. Whether they're in fashion or completely wacky .. I have fallen in love with a fair few and I want to show you a few from my Pinterest Boards.

I am all over Daisies and Glitter this year, Just look at these looks I am getting my inspiration from!


GLITTER BROWS - now this is my type of highlighter ... I honestly find festival make up so exciting, it gets all my creative juices flowing!


GLITTER BAGS - this look is one of my absolute favourites, because not only does it look amazing .. but when you're at festival sleep is the last priority therefore the bags under your eyes need covering and what better way to cover them then some glitter, sequins and anything that sparkles.


DAISY PAINT - Daisy face paint looks good on anyone and everyone and its so simple to do ... grab some white and yellow face paint or even eye liners... whether they're perfectly drawn on or roughly done.. they will always make you look festival fresh.


GLITTER ROOTS - okay so as you can see I am basically going to be a human glitter ball this year but to be honest i really do not give a ****.   If you don't get excited about being head to toe in glitter is it even worth going to a festival? ( i mean obviously the music is one of the main parts ) but dressing up is one of my favourite parts!!


All links to these looks are hyper linked. 
ENJOY.

5 Tanning Tips for this Summer


I have been on the Tan Wagon for just over a year now and have tried many a different brands, living in the UK means that tanning season doesn't last half as long as you'd hope or wish. I am one of those naturally pale girls who reflect light if I haven't coated my body in some form of bronzing agent. 

I want to give you my Top 5 Tips for tanning and let you in on what brands I use. 

1. EXFOLIATION - I cannot express the importance of exfoliating enough, this is purely through trial and error on my own behalf. An exfoliating Mitt, Glove or Scrub will remove dead skin cells and create an even base for your Tan to build on. 




2. MOISTURISE - if like me you have areas on your body that can become dry for example: Elbows, Under your feet, Hands and the back of your Heels then Moisturising is essential when trying to avoid any unwanted dark patches. 

3. NO DEODORANT OR OILY SKIN PRODUCTS - these can cause streaks if left on prior to tanning, so make sure to be fresh and product free before beginning. (except on your dry areas as mentioned above). 


4. WEAR A MITT - I have unfortunately once and ONLY once made the mistake of not wearing a tanning mitt to self tan. As the hours went by my hands turned very dark and actually quite orange compared to my natural bronzed look everywhere else. Not only this but a Tanning Mitt really helps to give you a more even tan. If you are using a Tanning Mitt I highly recommend washing the mitt after each use with some warm water and soap.

5. CLOTHING - after tanning I usually wait at least 5 minutes for the tan to dry before I put any clothes on. I use self tanners that you need to leave on for 6 - 8 hours therefore the clothing I wear once I have applied needs to be dark and loose fitting - some people have a specific outfit they wear once they've tanned, I also recommend this. 

Okay so that is my TOP 5 TANNING TIPS for this summer. If you're interested to know what products I have used in the two pictures above.. here they are! 

For my body i use the Skinny Tan Dark Mousse and for my face I use the Younique Beachfront Spray Tanner. 



Interior Therapy


Hello beautiful people! 

My Instagram following is now at the level that I wanted it to be therefore am now putting my time back into writing blog posts as well as creating Instagram posts! 

Today I want to to write about something that I have a keen interest in which is Interior Design which I studied through my college years along side Art and Textiles! I definitely have the Creativity Bug at the moment. 
I want to show you how to make your house a home with some of these cute cosy accessories.. 


One of my current favourite pieces for this season is a Faux Sheepskin rug, this can make your home go from that cold vibe straight to cosy! not only are they super comfortable they are also very versatile and can also be very affordable depending on where you shop. A few of the best places I would say to put a faux sheepskin rug would be: On a desk chair, On a tiled floor, In your bedroom or in your bathroom.. ( because putting your feet straight onto this fluffy rug is really going to be a treat for your feet ). 


You may catch on from this blog post that I love a comfy cosy home and what home would be cosy without super cute blankets and throws to warm up those winter nights. 


And finally the one thing that I could not live without is.. lots and lots of lighting! I think lighting Is very welcoming In a home, obviously your normal ceiling lighting is a must have but I mean decorative lighting .. here are a few examples I have found on Pinterest, I am a little bit obsessed with Pinterest when it comes to Interior Design Ideas I really do recommend taking a look if you're ever stuck for inspiration or ideas!
