Went on an autumn walk to le park with two of my flatmates and took these. I'm smirking in all of these trying not to laugh while my flatmate was taking them, I'm so used to just doing it myself with a tripod! Also please enjoy the excellent editing in the first photo, literally an editing genius. Think I'm going to try and take more outfit pics outside as it just makes the quality so much better. Not sure how many weird looks I'd get dragging my tripod down to the park though...xx

Polishes - Natural Collection in Winter Moon and Jessica in Starry Night

Just a quickie. This is how I had my nails this week, I wanted something wintery looking to match how cold it's getting. Feeling a bit blah and flu-y today (thanks body) so making the most of feeling sorry for myself in bed by writing up some blog posts. Hope everyone is having a good weekend! xx

FOTD #11 | Hollywood curls

Hi guys, sorry I've been so absent again! Had a Japanese history essay to write (never want hear 'Fujiwara' again) and it was my proper ~university~ essay to hand in that actually counted towards my first year mark so was ploughing through that. Anyways while I procrastinate I've been watching more beauty gurus on youtube and found this great tutorial on curling your hair to make proper glamorous 'hollywood' style curls. While the actual curling itself isn't anything new I did pick up some good tips:

Photobucket After you curl each section of hair, let it coil into your palm (like a necklace) and spray the coil with a little bit of hairspray.

Photobucket For a more glam look place your parting deep set to the left or right.

Photobucket Backbrush the roots of the pieces that frame your face for more volume.

Photobucketwhen you curl the pieces of hair nearest to your face/fringe, place the curler behind the section so the heat is against the root and volumizes the curl.

Please excuse the fact my hair is in need of a good dye! Moar posts soon xx

Manchester Vintage Fair + Street Style

On Saturday I visited the Manchester Vintage Fair. Sadly I am a poor student (hurry up student loan) so didn't buy any clothes but I did take lots of pictures! There were lots of stylish people wandering around too, so I plucked up the courage to get some street style snaps for the first time. Some people were a bit like 'err, okay' but most people were lovely, and no one said no!

Halloween!

Just some quick photos of what I wore on Halloween! I bought this dead dorothy costume and then covered myself in fake blood. I used the thread from a Motel tag to make stitches, and then stuck them to my face with eyelash glue - so easy and effective. I copied Judy Garland's hairstyle from the wizard of Oz and it's so cute, quite want to wear this daily but it is very cutesy! Trying to get back into the blogging swing of things, more posties coming sooon. xx
