HIGH WAISTED BASICS

Jacket - Topshop, Shirt - Charity Shop, Jeans - Topshop, Boots - Forever 21

Ooeee bit of a different background. My ma & pa have just done up my brother's bedroom in prep for him coming home from London for a year and while he's still darrrn Saaarth I quickly snuck up to take some snaps. One day I'm going to have this dream boat little house (as dream boat-y as one skint, single gal can afford) with a specific spot for taking blog pictures, but for now I have a few areas at the rents' where I can get snap happy.

Gone off on a tangent again haven't I. On the outfit front I was wearing this prior to this riding heatwave. A leather jacket is a no go in sticky hot weather. Normally I would have gone for my black skinny jeans but with trying to look at least a bit summery I went for the white version. The top I'm wearing them with is just tied up so I can flash a teeny bit of flesh. I quite like it as a more casual way to wear a smarter shirt.

NEW IN: BENEFIT OPERATION PORE PROOF


Benefit have just launched their Operation Pore Proof kit and with my pores having the tendency to take over my face, I thought it'd be a great one to try out. Especially at this time of year.. This gal is shiiiine central. With 5 minis in this box of treats there's plenty to try out if you're looking to deal with shine and pore problems.

One of the cult products in there is the Porefessional primer, a product I've used before and loved - it's not too balmy like I find with some other primers and quickly mops up excess oil. I like that it has a bit of colour too so it doesn't just feel like you're slapping a load of silicone stuffs on your chops. I wouldn't use it every day, but when I'm really wanting my makeup to 'set' then this is a go-to.

The License to Blot is another favourite, mostly because I'm surprised that it actually works both under and over makeup, without being cakey or smudging all your hard work off. I just think it's handy to pop in my handbag ready for any oily t-zone bouts.

My last love from the set is the Shy Beam highlighter.. Big yes to a matte highlight! With my oily skin I generally go for matte makeup, so this is the dreamy kind of glow I've been after.

I always like a good Benefit set when your makeup routine needs a bit of an update, plus they're a fail safe birthday/Christmas present right?!

FESTIVAL HAIR TUTORIAL


Just a quick 'do' today.. I wouldn't say it needs a tutorial as such (it is after all just some scruffy buns), but I was feeling all inspired by Glastonbury & had a bit of time to film it. It just sucks that I was only popping my hair up like this due to it being sticky hot at home and bot because I'm actually at Glasto doing all fun festival things. I so want to go next year now.. But then I say this every year. One day!

Anyhoo, my Glastonbury dreaming is kind of unrelated. I just think this would be a hair do I'd definitely go for if I was there.. Let's be honest, I dunno if I can pull this off when I'm just off to ASDA to pick out a meal for one. Lol.

SHOULDER FLASH

Top - USC, Bag - La Moda, Jeans - Primark, Heels - New Look

Seen as I've been doing my girly bit (the odd skirt, braving heels etc.), I've ended going back to black jeans today. Easily done right? It probably wasn't my best idea seen as it's still ridiculously humid, but everyone needs a quick and easy outfit.. In fact for me the majority of the time it's a quick and easy outfit.

I was just wearing this to pop out for some food the other night. It wasn't anything fancy, but I decided I needed heels so I didn't feel too casual. Heels always have that sassy effect I think.. They just make me feel a little bit more confident seen as I'm blessed with short legs. Providing I don't hit the deck in them. The jeans are just those ones from Primark that I stuck some rips in - I was going to buy some ready done but it seems a bit daft when it literally takes two minutes. On the shoulder flashing top front I'm in another newbie from USC. It's really simple but I know I'll wear it loads. I love that off the shoulder sort of thing and it drapes well without being completely shapeless. 

Time to go.. I've got pulled pork to eat, nails that need some TLC and could do with catching up on some chill time before Kanye at Glasto. Yeah, he's a full on pleb but I feel like I need to watch it.. Plus I can't help but want to spot Kimmy K. My Saturday nights are craaayyyzy.

NAVY TWO PIECE

Sunglasses - Ray Ban, Two Piece - c/o USC, Sandals - Office

Officially feeling summery. Yeah, it hasn't been that sunny up in Sheffield, but it's warm and I can just about brave bare legs without feeling totally ridiculous. In miserable UK standards I'm thinking that's a good start.

This little two piece is helping with the summer vibes.. It's such a cute number for the jols. I'll be popping it in my case for Greece - I'm thinking it'll be nice worn like this on day trips then popped over a bikini at the beach. I go in two weeks so I'm starting to plan a few outfits and get beyond excited. Bring on sunshine, chilling out and bronzing up.
