OOTD: Drop it low

A fun outfit with a funky print twist. A bralet from New Look under a ASOS vest top teamed with pink bow New Look shoes and Next jeans, love this combo! If like me you don't feel confident to rock the crop top or bralet alone then grab a vest top to fling over the top with jeans for a relaxed feel.

Review: theBalm Shady Lady Eyeshadow Palette

Hello Loveys,
 
Here is a review featuring one of my favourite beauty brands- theBalm.
 
theBalm is a fabulous company founded by Marissa Shipman in 2004, today I am featuring Shady Lady eyeshadow palette.
 
The palette contains 9 eyeshadows which are great for both day and night, the shades are a mixture of shimmer and matte, from taupe to a deep aubergine. The palette is a handy size for the handbag with a great mirror to allow you to add some on the go with each eyeshadow having a name and description of how you can use the shadow, so the top 3 shades in the far left corner are seen as "shadow/liner" and the rest are seen as "shadow" so its showing you that you can use all shades as an eyeshadow with some as eyeliner too, so a two in one product.

Here is a list of the eyeshadows and swatches below.
 
Feisty Felicia
Caught in the act Courtney
Shameless shana
Insane jane
Mischievous marissa
Just this once Jamie
Envious erin
Devilish Danielle
Luscious lani
 
 




 
Here I am wearing luscious lani as the base with mischievous marissa in the crease and just this one Jamie for the edge of my eyelid.


 
The pigmentation is beautiful, I love the shades, I think I will need to wear a primer as I found that the shadow did slide away after a while. The eyeshadow looked gorgeous on, wish the pictures showed the colours more!
 
Have you tried this palette?

A lovely summers morning....

Hello Loveys,
 
I thought I would do a post that I haven't done in a very long time, a blogs version of a vlog. Me and my little boy had a morning walk and explore in a lovely town near us, we explored the great green fields, finding bugs and beautiful flowers. We discovered a barn with lots of history, where the sun burst through the cross shaped windows, you could imagine a medieval banquet taking place, imagine the gowns and fine fabrics swishing through the barn.
 


 
I wore my lace dress from H&M and sandals from Primark, the weather was so beautiful considering it was 9 in the morning!




 


 
We walked along the canal and spotted some ducklings amongst the still but murky waters. We could smell bacon and burnt toast where people were making breakfast within the canal boats, I would love to have a little weekend break on a canal boat, it seems so tranquil and pretty.



 

 



 

 
This barn was amazing, I particularly loved the sun bursting through the little windows scattered around. I wasn't sure what this barn would have been used for but it would be amazing as a wedding setting.

 

 
I had such a lovely time, I enjoy early morning walks in the countryside, the silence is amazing, it helps me feel calm and takes you away from the madness that is life.
