I am so sorry I have been gone for so long, but working full time, having to do three uni assignments and actually having a life is starting to take its toll on me. I seem to just come home from my placement and spend all night YouTube videos or writing assignments - I don't know why I'm moaning as I chose to compete an extra Digital Marketing diploma with the CIM whilst I'm on my placement.
Anyway moving on..... As it's my 21st birthday soon I thought I would write a wish list of everything I am lusting over and will most probably buy with my birthday money. As I am going to Florida just after my birthday (but technically for my birthday) most of my presents from my mum will be purchased there, instead of doing a post on 'what I want for my birthday', I thought it would be a good idea to show you what I will be purchasing with the money I receive.
Most of the items below are fashion related, I will be purchasing all of my beauty products in America so I thought I would leave that for another post.
MAC Taupe lipstick and Spice lip liner are slowly starting to become my new everyday lip combination. The lipstick itself is a muted reddish-taupe/brown with a matte finish. You all should know by now how much I love a matte lip.
I think it might be time to say bye bye to my beloved Soft and Gentle and hello to Mary-Lou.
Mac lipsticks are my weakness - if I am ever in Mac, I will most likely come out with a new lipstick or liner. I am slowly trying to build my Mac lipstick collection, in the space of a year I have collected 9 lipsticks, that's nearly a new lipstick every month! Mac have the best colour range and I fall in love with a new shade every time I enter the store - I am currently obsessing over brown/neutral shades, my next purchasing being either 'stone' or 'persistence'.
Over the past few months I've learnt that I don't care what people think about the way I dress or how I style my make up, if I feel confident and comfortable that's all that matters. I am trying to slowly adapt my wardrobe to feel more "grown up" and sophisticated, but to still show my 20 year old self through the clothes. That's why I've put together this look, to show you how you can style one quite sophisticated outfit and shape it to match any occasion.
Coats are a huge obsession of mine this Autumn/Winter, I am personally moving away from the traditional black winter coat and leaning more towards the mustards, greens and nudes, I am also a huge fan of faux fur coats. Zara coats and jackets this year are incredible, no matter what trend you are following or what style of coat you are after they will have it. Topshop is definitely a close second. I thought I would share with you which coats that I think are definitely going to become popular with the public this season.
My most recent obsession is purchasing trousers, or shall I say dreaming of all the trousers that I want to purchase. Trousers are such a staple piece to have in your wardrobe as they can be paired:
- super chilled with a pair of trainers and a crop top
- for a night out with some heels/heeled boots
- or for work with a cami top and some loafers
I though't I'd share with you a little wishlist of trousers that I am lusting over. Once I have more of a trouser collection, I will be doing a 'how I style trousers' post so keep your eyes out for that.
