Prairie Charms ❤

[Sponsored Post]

Hey everyone :)

I was kindly asked to participate in a blog collaboration with Prairie Charms; a company which specialises in hand crafted jewellery, apparel and accessories. 
I checked out the items and I noticed that they're quite unique - even from each other. They have floral head bands and bows, but also glittery necklaces and chic belts! If you're not the type to wear floral patterned accessories, there is something in the shop that you will like!

The products I selected:

Quin Retro Head Band
Lainey Bunting Necklace in Black
Kaira Bracelet
I was also given a surprise present: Vivienne Knot Ties



So starting off with the Quin Retro Hair Band, it's a wire within a gorgeous floral print material, with pinks, light greens, dark greens - perfect for summer! Well... perfect if you love wearing summery colours even when the weather is dull!
I've always wanted a hair band like this because I've tried making hair bands and they've never really stuck on my head. However with the wire within the floral print, this baby stays in place and doesn't lose it's shape!
I've been wearing this loads lately, as I find that it looks super cute, and it's also great to wear when you're having a bad hair day.


Photobooth ;)
I think the headband really gives a 'youthful' and cute sort of an appearance


The Kaira Bracelet is a lovely light pink beaded bracelet, with dainty beads including a few gold beads too.. 
If I were to wear this, it would be when I have a serious event to go to but I still want to look a bit stylish - you know us girls! As it's quite small, it looks very soft, feminine and elegant - and adds a bit of class to your outfit choice!
My only concern is the amount of beads in the bracelet isn't enough; as people will wider wrists may not fit the bracelet :(


 Moving on to the Lainey Bunting necklace - I believe there were other shades to choose from, but I preferred the black because I love the appearance of gold and black together!


This necklace is made of triangular cut pieces of black fabric with different specks of glitter coating one side. I was afraid that the glitter may fall off - simply because I've had that problem in the past with other glitter accessories - however the glitter on this necklace doesn't rub off! 
I really like this piece of statement jewellery and it looks good with a casual everyday outfit, but also with a fancy top and blazer for a more formal occasion!

The last gift - which was a surprise gift - was the Vivienne Knot Ties.


I'm not going to lie, I did open this and think, 'What do I use this for?' and I orginally thought they were  wrist accessories. But looking on their website for more information, they use these as hair ties too, which is pretty cool because usually really thin hair ties sometimes break and snap if your hair is too thick. These knot ties are thick and you don't have to worry about them breaking!


Another way of wearing these knot ties is on the wrist - but you can jazz it up a little by undoing the knot and adding in several charms (you know the pandora bracelet charms) and then knotting it up again and wearing it :)


I hope you guys liked this review! And do check out their boutique as they have some really lovely items, I highly recommend their bracelets and head bands!


Thank you Prairie Charms :)

Workaholic

Hey everyone :)

I hope you guys are all doing well, and I know I'm not blogging as much as I did this time last year, but I've been working on other projects that I will be sharing with you guys soon!
One of them was my previous blog post - the 'Sh*t White Girls Say To Desi Girls' video, which has received a ton of positive and amazing comments! Ahh I'm so happy.

I've got to be truthful and say that I was doubting myself a  lot when I was making/uploading the video, but now I really do think that I didn't believe in myself much. But on the flip side, all of the amazing comments and likes I've received, I feel like I want to make more of these kinds of videos! I will be doing beauty related posts - but maybe not as a video though. 


^^ Really really lovely comments I've received!

I'm so glad that my video has gone over 800 views - which is quite a lot for me on this type of video. (I know it's not much compared to other YouTube videos, but it's a lot for me) And I'm just really thankful for everyone who is supporting me with the YouTube/blogs and are constantly there for me when I need help or when I'm feeling unmotivated.

You guys are awesome :)

I will be doing more videos - and I'm currently labeled as a workaholic just because I'm constantly thinking of new blog/video ideas ;)
It's just the beginning of something amazing - I'm sure of it!

Sh*t White Girls Say To Desi Girls

Hey everyone :)

So I've been a little bit busy lately with a certain video and I guess it's not something I'm used to doing but I like challenging myself... here it is!



Disclaimer:
Please don't take any offence to this video, I'm just joking around and honestly - these are things that have been said to me before! I'm not implying that every single girl out there is like this, as some know more than others. 

I know it's really short, but I had so many lines planned out, I didn't realise I spoke really fast and it was going to be so short!
I hope you guys like it.. and you guys enjoy laughing at my goofiness :) - oh and my hair haha

Dealing with HATERS?

Hey everyone :)

I was asked to blog about people who are basically 'haters' in the sense they:
a) Feel to leave criticism on how someone looks/ what they're doing
b) Don't like you for no apparent reason
c) Once were close to you and all of a sudden turned sour

It's a tough situation, but you shouldn't let it affect you! Don't let anybody stop you from doing what you want to do, and forget any harsh words they say.

Here's the advice:

I hope you guys like this video, don't forget to 'like' and subscribe!

FOTN: Mum's Birthday Meal

Hey everyone :)

On Saturday we went to celebrate my mum's birthday - even though it was on Wednesday - but there were a lot of us obviously, a day when everyone was free was ideal!
We went to Red Hot Buffet... again. 
Now don't get me wrong, that might've come across like I'm getting tired of the place - and that definitely isn't the case! That place is amazing.


My eye makeup for the night - I used different shades of purple and layered it with a dark aubergine shade to create that 'depth' and smokey effect. I also applied half lashes to the ends of the top lash line - just to make my eyes look more elongated and give that appearance of a thicker voluminous lash!


Face of the night :) The products I used:
Benefit Erase Paste - 03 Deep
NARS Sheer Glow Foundation - Punjab
Glamoflauge concealer - Tan
Soap & Glory concealer kit (just the white powder)
Superdry Bronzer - Teracotta
Superdry Highlighter
HD Brow Kit - Bombshell
Wet n Wild Eyeshadow palette
Soap & Glory felt tip eyeliner
Rimmel London Kate Moss Lipstick - 17


With le sister :)

Indian Princess

Hey everyone :)

I didn't really know what to call this post, but 'Indian Princess' seemed suitable after a lot of people have said that wearing a 'Matha Patti' made me look like one haha
Wait... What's a Matha Patti?! 
Well, it's one of these...


You see, 'Matha' means head - or forehead - and 'Patti' means... I have no idea! 

I bought this recently from eBay; I've been looking on there for jewellery/clothes and they have really amazing items that are a lot cheaper than in store! I saw this and knew I had to have it. 


I bought it with a gold chin - you can buy them with a silver chain - and this has rhinestones in as well as a pearl beaded chain too! I've been getting so many compliments on this head piece and I'm so glad I bought it! Hopefully, I'll be creating some looks - or even using it in a transformation tutorial by my sister :)


I've been asked to do a tutorial on how to set it - and I'll try! It is a little bit tricky but it's manageable, so I should have a tutorial up soon?


In case you're wondering where I bought this Matha Patti from, click here.
This seller has a lot of other Indian jewellery pieces too, including hair accessories, bracelets, earrings and other tikka pieces!

(Oh, and I also bought my earrings from this seller too!)


What do you guys think? :)

FULL Coverage Foundation Routine

Hey everyone :)

I thought I would update my FULL Coverage foundation routine as my old one was a little bit outdated... and this is the makeup that I do whenever it comes to a party, or wedding, or any other special occasion!


As you can see, my under eyes are covered well along with my acne scarring, and I've also contoured a little bit too as wearing a good coverage foundation can make the face look a little 2 dimensional!

Watch! :)


Products I used:
NARS Sheer Glow - Punjab
Glamoflauge Tattoo Concealer - Tan
Soap & Glory Kick Ass Concealer powder
Avon Ideal Shade powder
Superdry Bronzer - Teracotta
Fox in a Box blusher - Sweet and Spice
Superdry Liquid Highlighter


I hope you guys liked this tutorial!

How To: Get Someone To Like You

Hey everyone :)

So I was asked to write this up a few months ago, but I've had a lot of thought on how to actually combat this request - it's not an easy thing to give advice and say that it'll work 100%. Because it won't.

There isn't a magic potion out there than can guarantee that the person you like, will like you. 
You have to remember that: Everyone has their own preferences; for example someone will have a certain 'type' that they like. People are fussy. And there is no way around it, unless they're willing to really get to know you regardless of how you look, your age, or whatever it is that is considered a 'difference'.
If the person you like is going to be like this, then don't worry because it's their loss and not yours. If they don't want to properly get to know you because of a minor preference then that's their own fault.

So, I'm not leaving this all on a bad note, so here are some tips on how to get someone to like you! :

1) Be normal aka Don't be a perv:
Have you ever received an email or a Facebook message from someone who says, "Hey ;)" or "Your picture is so gorjussss ;)". The whole ';)' is one emoticon that IS NOT appropriate when talking to someone for the first time. 
Not only does it look quite pervy, but it also comes across as desperate.
If you really want to talk to someone, talk normally. Say something that will get a conversation started like, "Hey, you alright?" See, that doesn't sound weird, or pervy, or desperate. It's normal!

2) Be a friend aka Don't be a desperate person who rushes into things too quickly:
I don't know if you've ever been in a situation and you're talking to someone, and after a day of talking, they start talking about how much they want to date you. Especially when they've never met you before.
If you've never met someone and you like them, be more of their friend and properly get to know them! You cannot go wrong with being someones friend first, and seeing if there is 'something there' before rushing into telling them your feelings.
It's best to get to know someone first; what are their favourite TV shows, what things are they passionate about, what are they scared off etc. It's just good to know what you're getting yourself into :)

3) Be a friend pt II aka Don't be self centred:
By this I mean, when you talk to them, TALK to them about things that involve them. If you really want them to like you, you're going to need to get them involved properly in your conversation. It's annoying when you're talking to someone and they're just talking about themselves. Like you could doze off for 5 minutes and they're still talking about themselves.
It does let someone know that you're interested when you show interest in them, in what they like, in what they're doing.
I don't know something more off putting about someone to be honest.. If someone wants to talk to you about themselves and A LOAD of their problems (especially on a first date or in the early stages of getting to know them), you need to let them know that you're not their psychiatrist.

4) Be happy :) aka Don't be negative:
A lot of people when they start talking to someone don't realise this, but sometimes they come out with negative things. Being someone who likes to be optimistic and look at the good things in life, I dislike when people say things like, "I look horrible" or  "No one wants to be with me" - unless they mean it as in a joke. But when someone generally feels that way, then I honestly think they need time to themselves and really think about their lives.
I personally couldn't wouldn't want to be with someone who thinks of themselves really negatively... Although I can understand if someone is having a bad day, or a rough patch and they're feeling bad - but it doesn't mean that you need to show your vulnerable side to someone you're wanting to be with. Some people can handle it, others can't - and therefore they will get put off.

5) Take it easy aka Don't become too attached:
One thing that you need to understand is that you don't own anyone, and that if someone isn't talking to you, it doesn't mean anything. Do not over think situations and think "Shit, why isn't that person talking to me?" 
Truthfully, if someone really wants to be in your life, they will make that effort and talk to you, and have a decent conversation with you. Don't force something that isn't there, don't conjure up things to make you believe that there is something there when there isn't. It will only lead to you getting hurt! :(
To stop yourself from doing this, just enjoy life! Talk to other people, go out, spend time with family and friends and do things that you enjoy :) 
The worst thing to do is stay at home and keep thinking about that one person and wonder why they're not messaging/calling you, and if they're thinking about you.

This is quite a hard question to tackle and it's not a guaranteed thing.. But I hope this advice helps you in some way and you get the guy/girl that you've always wanted :)

LBD

Hey everyone :)

Is it acceptable to think LBD means Little Black Dress but also Long Black Dress? Ah..

I came across this dress on boohoo.com just over a month ago, and I knew I had to buy it! 


It's very long, so you're able to wear it to formal occasions as well as parties without looking too over the top. The fact that it has a slit on the side - kinda makes it a little bit daring to wear because your leg is on show! I've never worn anything like this before, so I was a little hesitant but honestly it is one of my favourite dresses ever!

I paired it up with my spiked studded 6" heels and my sparkly gold clutch bag :) 


 I'd say my only problem with this dress is that the material is really thin, so any bumps you might have, it'll show.. and also underwear may show through. Ooops.. But there are ways of getting over that problem so it's not all bad.

I wore this dress at an event a month ago:


I really like looking on boohoo.com for dresses as they have really stunning pieces at affordable prices :) also 10% off for students - so why not?

Real Techniques Brushes DUPE

Hey everyone :)

I've always been a fan of buying things quite cheap - what do you expect? I'm Indian. Haha I'm joking, but in all seriousness, I do like it when I'm able to save a couple of pounds on something that is high quality. Unless it's makeup.


These five brushes worked out to £13 altogether - which is pretty awesome as the legit Real Techniques brushes are a lot more. So why not snatch up this brush set?!

Oh, and I did post a picture of these on Facebook and one of my friends told me they didn't look real haha. I said that they were fake because I got them from eBay haha, but if they work just as well as the RT brushes, then I don't see what the big deal is :)


I know in these pictures it looks quite red, but it's meant to be a hot pink! 

These are the brushes:
Angled
Dome Shaped
Stipple
Flat Top
Round Top


I've been using these brushes for the past week to really get some good use out of them, and I've used all of the brushes except the stipple brush - but I will be using that one next!

When I first opened the packet I just had to feel the texture of the bristles; like sometimes they can feel really plasticky, or quite rough. Well surprisingly, the bristles are super soft and are really gentle on the skin. And they're not too soft that they're flimsy or don't blend well. The bristles on these brushes are very dense, they're tightly packed together so that they blend foundation/concealer well, without making the face look streaky - as some brushes give that effect.
Honestly these brushes are worth it.


My only problem with these brushes is that at first, one or two bristles came out quite when I'm busy buffing the foundation onto my face. But after washing them the first time round, I didn't have that problem again! :) 


If you're interested in checking out these brushes, or you're wanting to buy them - I highly recommend them if you're low on cash but you still want some decent brushes - then check them out here.

I hope you guys liked this review! :)

How To: Get Over a Break Up

Hey everyone :)

For some reason, this was highly requested.. I have no idea why but I hope this helps in some way or another!
- I did write up a post like this last year but I thought I'd update it and make it a bit more current ;) -

So, you've just broken up with the girl/guy you thought you were going to spend the rest of your life with. You're sad, you're confused, you miss them... Regardless of who broke up with who, you're both going to be feeling pretty shit. 

What do you do?!


1) KEEP IT TOGETHER aka Don't be a dumbass
By this I mean, do not message them like crazy and say "I miss you", "I want to get back with you", "Let's be friends with benefits!?" No. There is a reason why you both broke up, and if you guys are meant to get back together, it will happen in due time. Do not rush to get back together because you miss that person, or you're feeling lonely, or whatever negative things you're feeling.
Give it about a week or two and see how you feel, that is when you'll know if your feelings are true or if they're temporary.

2) FOCUS ON GOOD THINGS aka Don't be desperate:
Why is it that when some people break up, they tweet/status update with things like "Certain people need to _____" and direct it at the ex. And don't do the whole, "Omg so many guys are after me now that I'm single", hoping that the ex will see this and bring them back to you.
No, calm your shit. 
This just looks really tacky and desperate, and your ex will not pay any attention because they know it's just a scheme.. If you really really really do want to get them to notice you, tweet good things. Say you're having a good day, or how good life is and things like that.
Personally, I avoid talking to people who complain about a lot of things in their life, or they always have something to moan about. I'd rather talk to someone who is feeling good! So if you post good things, people will want to talk to you :)

3) TAKE YOUR TIME aka Don't be quick to move on:
You know how people usually do the rebound trick after being in a relationship for however long, just don't do that.
People end up getting hurt, it's extra stress that isn't needed and who says you have to be in a rush to find someone else. If you're wanting to move on quickly to forget about the ex, or to make the ex jealous, then I have a quote for you my friend:
"Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die."
It just doesn't work!
You honestly do need to take your time to move on from your ex, because time is what heals everything, so don't drag other people into something that they don't deserve to deal with. 
The only person you need at this point is yourself. 
Take up some extra hobbies, find things to do that you enjoy, make the most out of your free time :)

4) BE YOUR OWN BEST FRIEND aka Don't drive others away:
Like I said in the last post - The only person you need is yourself.
When someone goes through a break up, they usually tell their best friends everything from how they're feeling - usually they're upset, angry, lonely etc. And truthfully, as much as your friend can be there to console you, there is only so much that they can do. They're not a genie, who can grant your wishes and make everything fine again. And they probably don't want to hear you constantly go on about your ex and how much you want to be with them again.
This is why you need to learn to be your own best friend, the only one that can actually help you out of this rut is yourself.
If you're feeling run down and you want a pick me up, give yourself a facial/manicure - yeah, I'm talking to you guys out there too! :P Buy a new handbag, get a new hair colour... things like that to really treat yourself and make you feel that tiny bit better, is the step in the right direction :)

5) CUT TIES aka Don't stalk them on Facebook/Twitter:
Now I know a lot of people like to keep their ex's on Facebook to see who they're talking to, or what they're up to. But those of you who have actually done this, you will know that this will make you really upset/sad because I can guarantee you that when you look on the ex's profile, there will be something on there that you wish you hadn't read, or it'll anger you or make you miss them.
You will feel a lot better if you just cut off ties with the ex and allow yourself to move on with your life :)

6) THINGS HAPPEN FOR A REASON aka Don't think about the good times (unless you really want to) :
You need to realise that you guys broke up for a reason, and whichever reason that was, it's generally for the better. One major piece of advice that I can give you about moving on is that you need to let go. Let go of the memories because all it will do is make you miss your ex more and more - and that's the opposite of what you really want. 
You should remember to think of the reasons why you broke up, why things didn't work out... If you had any arguments, what annoyed you about them, etc. 
Just keep to yourself and block out anything that will make you feel upset/hurt/angry :)

I hope you guys liked this post and this advice has helped you in some way!

Gold/Bronze Smokey Eye Makeup

Hey everyone :)

A few days ago, I posted this photo up on Facebook:


I received a couple of messages from you guys asking to make this into a tutorial :) But sadly I'm not that great with tutorials, so instead I made a Get Ready With Me video. Which is almost the same thing.. 



Products Used:
Hard Candy Bronzer - You can use any other bronzer.
I used this as the main blending colour, so I applied this all over the lid and packed a little bit more on the crease area to deepen it.
Milani Eyebrow Kit - You can use any shimmery highlight shade.
Apply this in the inner corners and underneath the brow, to make the brow bone stand out more. You will notice a hell of a lot of a difference when you highlight!
Wet n Wild palette - Other shades you can use: Champagne, Dark Brown
Apply the Champagne shade on the lid ONLY, and blend it into the bronzer shade. Then taking the dark brown shade, apply this along the crease and create an 'Outer V' shape.
HD Brows - Any black eyeshadow
Use this to line the top lid and also deepen the crease area with the black. You don't want to use too much unless you're wanting a very dramatic look!


I hope you guys liked this look :) 
It really is a simple eye makeup look and you can substitute different colours in to make it more appropriate for everyday wear, or for a party etc!

Freshlook Colourblend - Gemstone Green

Hey everyone :)

I recently purchased a couple of Freshlook Colourblend lenses from contactlenses.co.uk - I really wanted to try other brands rather than sticking to my GEO lenses that I usually buy.
I bought the Gemstone Green shade, and the plain Green shade (which I will review in a future post!)


Gemstone Green

I first heard of these lenses a two months ago when I saw my aunt wearing some that were in a Hazel shade, and I thought 'Wow they look really nice!' so I decided to buy some and try them out for myself. 
I was in need of new lenses too, so this was a good opportunity to try them out!

I bought these from contactlenses.co.uk - I HIGHLY recommend this website if you're wanting lenses on a short notice. If you buy them before 4pm, they will arrive the next day! Perfect if you're wanting lenses for a weekend event or your old lenses are no longer feeling fresh.

So the reason I chose Gemstone Green... well.. I'm going through a green phase at the moment haha. I've tried blues, browns, and even a pink shade a few years ago. Green looks great with most skin tones and I've been getting a lot of compliments on my lenses when wearing these :)

First Impressions

When I opened up the little package to get the contact lens out, I saw that they're pretty vibrant. Which is great if you're the type who want your eyes to be noticed! Also, I've noticed that sometimes contact lenses don't really show up on dark brown eyes - and believe me, my eyes are pretty dark brown! - and these lenses show up really nicely.

(this is my natural eye colour) :)


Application and Wearability 

The main downside to these lenses is the fact that they don't attach onto the eyeball as easy as other lenses! 
Honestly, I've never struggled so much with putting in lenses in my 6 years of wearing contacts. They either fold in half when you blink, or just get attached to your finger and it's a pain when you're in a hurry to get ready. 
I find the way to get the lenses to fix on to the eye is to keep it pressed down on the eyeball and then close your eye a little bit, and wiggle your finger upwards so that the lenses can slide under the eyelid. It's a little squeamish but that is the only way that I can apply these lenses.

In terms of wearability, I think they take time to get used to.. They're the type of lenses where you can feel like you have something on your eye and also you're able to see a bit of the lens pattern too. It does feel a little uncomfortable at first but you do get used to it.

After a few hours of wearing these lenses, you will find that your eyes may feel a bit dry and irritated - I did. Which is really strange because I am usually able to wear my GEO lenses for more than 12 hours straight without my eyes feeling dry.
I only wear these lenses for a short period of time - which isn't great because I prefer my lenses to last for a long time without irritating my eyes.

Overall rating:
3/5
I really love the design of them and the fact that they show up really nicely on dark brown eyes and look quite natural, but the comfort and application is the biggest con.

I hope you guys liked this review! I will be back with another review soon :)

7 Life Lessons In One

Hey everyone :)

I've been thinking a lot lately.. in fact, I think I've been thinking too much for the average girl. Not average person, but average girl. Now that's a lot.
And I've not been thinking about the random crap about shoes or makeup... but more about relationships, and love... and life. 

I think I was at that stage where I'm just thinking, "Bring it on, biatch", with all of life's challenges and I was hoping that I'd actually get somewhere. And to be honest, I've not got anywhere... but I've learned a couple of things along the way... 

1) Give someone the same amount of attention that they give you: 
This means that those people who go out of their way to text you - especially with long messages - talk to them more than those who don't bother with you. Why? You're only wasting your time with using your friendship feelings on the wrong people. I suppose you'll feel a lot happier being friends with people who really want to be friends with you. 

2) Say what you mean, and mean what you say:
I've always lived by this, and I am the type to be honest and pretty blunt. Whenever I say something, I usually stick to it because why would I say something and then change my mind later? It's something that doesn't make sense to me... I guess this is a lesson for those who are unsure about their words. Don't say something and later change your mind. Honesty is, in fact, the best policy.

3) Life is too good to be sad:
If you have a small bump in the road, the world doesn't end. When you fall out with your best friend, the world won't end. When you feel like you're completely alone in the world, your world has not ended. Even if you are feeling alone, there are tons of things to do to make you feel better... Talk to someone else, watch YouTube videos, catch up with a family friend, read a book etc. Don't let sadness eat you up inside!



4) Don't drunk text people:
Just don't. Unless the person you've drunk texted before has texted you when they're drunk. Don't text them thinking anything good will come out of it - because (I'm guessing) it rarely does. I guess I can't really go into this further because if you've ever done it, you will know that it's embarrassing and you could end up regretting it the next day. 

5) Take risks:
If you feel like you need to say something, if you have a gut feeling about someone and you want to tell them. Do it. Just be honest. I suppose this could end up good or bad, but if you don't take risks, you will end up regretting it and thinking, "What if I just said it?"

"If you're not scared then you're not taking a chance. If you're not taking a chance then what the hell are you doing anyway?"

6) Let your scars turn into wisdom:
If you've come out of a big situation and you feel it's taken a huge toll on your life, don't feel like it's a bad impact on you. Don't feel like it's a big mistake, or a regret. It's a lesson learned.
Life is all about making mistakes, and learning from them. 


7) Think about the last thing you're going to say to someone:
Would you want someone to remember you saying "Oh ____ you" as the last thing you ever said to them? I know it's a little dramatic to think along those lines, but you never know what tomorrow will bring you. Tomorrow may not be promised..
I'd rather have someone know I'm fine with them, and that whatever they did; I forgive them. And whatever I've done to them, I hope they forgive me. 
The bottom line here is just to be civil with everyone, life is too short for arguments and worrying about other people's business. Focus on you, be the best person that you can be, and be nice to others :)

That's all of the life lessons that I've learned within the past... month I guess haha. I hope you guys liked this post and I hope I've helped in some way or another.

Hey everyone :)

I'm a fan of Off The Shoulder-type sweaters and tees.. In fact, I cringe when I have to wear something that makes me feel 'suffocated' around the neck - even though it's not really tight or anything.
And one example of this was my Jack Daniels sweater that I blogged about a while back:

(Yeah, my long hair - I do miss it sometimes, but only sometimes!)

With the material being kinda fleecy and warm, I decided that I wanted it to be off the shoulder so that I wouldn't feel too hot in it.


It looks more like a casual, slouchy sort of sweater now that I could wear with jeans or even shorts :)


I'm really liking the off the shoulder style tops :) I will probably be wearing this jumper a lot more now that it's like this :)

P.S I did a makeup tutorial on how I made up my eyes - and that will be the next post! (well it'll come up soon) because it was highly requested :D
I hope you guys liked this post, and do you like off the shoulder-type clothes? Or do you prefer them in their regular, non-customized form?

Indian Wedding FOTD's

Hey everyone :)

I have been super duper busy the past week with a lot of different things, and one main thing was my sister in law's cousin's wedding (Saturday). But Indian weddings take up half of the week - in case you didn't know ;D

I think it's safe to say that I finally know what I am doing with my makeup these days - the whole foundation application and making sure I have a flawless face! I will be doing an updated full coverage foundation routine soon as I have literally perfected it! No more crease lines or stubborn visible scars :)

Thursday night:



I kept my eye makeup really minimalistic as I used a soft shimmery gold on my lids and a light brown colour along the crease - blended upwards into a champagne shade that I applied as highlight. The lipstick I'm wearing is from the Kate collection by Rimmel London - Shade 17. It's a lovely pink shade that goes with almost every makeup look :)

Friday night:

I don't have a close up of my makeup for the Friday night, although it was quite similar to the Thursday night makeup.. I had worn my Superdry Electric Pink lipstick instead :)


Wearing my favourite silk saree - I absolutely love it as it's got my fave colour in it! Red!

Saturday:


So I wore the same dress that I wore for my sisters wedding, and I did the makeup a little bit similar to how I had it on the day. Although this time I used a Hard Candy bronzer for the entire lid, a champagne shimmery shade for highlighting, and a pure black shade for the crease and definition.

I am LOVING the Superdry liquid highlighter, I used it on my brow bone, tear duct area, cheekbones, the bridge of my nose and my cupids bow.. It just looks so pretty when the light shines on you. I will be doing a proper review on it soon.. I just really like it!








I hope you guys liked this makeup and I will (hopefully) write up a tutorial on this cut crease eye shadow look because I've received a few requests!
