Writing posts like this really makes me wonder why lipsticks-aholics anonymous doesn’t exist. Applying lipstick is my favourite part of my going out make up routine. It can really bring the face to life – a bold red transforming you into a hollywood starlet or a bright pink into a 80s pop diva.
Perfection is something shoved into our faces each and every day of our lives. Whether it be the pressure to achieve academically, competitively or physically. It’s taken some time for me to accept that perfection is unattainable. Airbrushed models splashed over magazines are distorted images and no matter how perfect someone’s life may seem, we all have our flaws. It is pointless wasting days of your life worrying about inadequacy.
Rooting through and trying on the entire contents of my wardrobe is not an uncommon occurrence in my life. The feeling of being swamped in clothes but still not knowing what to wear can be extremely frustrating. It’s easy to get into a fashion rut, and I’ll end up dithering for hours just to wear an outfit I feel comfortable in. At times like this, I love to have a look through style blogs and icons to re-gain inspiration & get my creativity back.
I thought I’d give you guys the low-down on who I look to when it comes to fashion, and hopefully it’ll be helpful to any of you that feel challenged at dressing yourself at times (it happens to the best of us).

I’m really into Lush’s Cupcake face mask, which you can see a review of here. Despite my love for Cupcake, it’s designed for oily skin and my skin has a lot of dry patches. I thought I’d be better suited to this BB mask so decided to give it a go.
To celebrate my uncle’s 50th birthday last weekend, my family and I visited Ascot racecourse in Berkshire. I’d never been to the races before, and to be honest don’t know how much I agree with it (or gambling), but I have to say I had a really amazing day.
As a lover of all things British (scones, bunting, the royal family, queueing..) it seems only logical that I’m a huge Topshop fan. I practically skip out of the shop swinging my bags every time I make a purchase. Although my main driving force of entering Topshop is to buy clothes, I’m really into the make-up selection, especially the lipsticks.
Dressing for Autumn is probably my favourite of all of the seasons. I can get away with my basic monochromatic wardrobe and don’t have to wear loads of layers to stay warm. As you can see, I’ve transitioned some of my Summer staples into this outfit too, like my cropped tee & floral headband. I’m no fashion expert (and have melt-downs dressing myself at times) but really like how this outfit came together in the end.
