Casual Weekend Outfit and Makeup

Recently I am really into baggy jeans shirts!
I love to wear them with a tank under it or a jumper on top. I think they are really comfy and casual and great to wear on a weekend.

I tried to make a good picture below but it is kinda hart to photograph yourself. LOL!
Check out my video that will follow where I show also the jacket and bag I wore on that day: click here!

Jeans Shirt: H&M in the sales
Necklace: Topshop
Watch: Folli Follie
Jeans: Gap 1969 Jeggins (I am in love with them)
Loafers: Asos (in love with them too)

 Above is a shot of my makeup!
I love wearing the velvet matte lip pencils from NARS, above I am wearing Bettina.
I used the Nacked 2 Pallete for my eyemakeup and lots of black gel eyeliner.

Above is a picture of the makeup I used. Looking at it now it actually is not THAT much is it?
I also used the extra virgin minerals compact from TheBodyShop but I really don't like it. The consistency is really creamy at first and then gets so dry that it feels uncomfortable on the skin.

The two mascaras captured are my absolute favourite since two months! I love to use them together. First I use the Mac Zoomlash on the toplashes because it puts on a lot of black fast. I use the Bourjois Volumzser mascara in top of that for Volume and on the lower lashes as the Zoomlash always starts running down.

So far, so good!

MAC Spring Lipsticks Haul: Viva Glam Nicki, Innocence Beware! and Watch me Simmer

I got carried away!
After seeing a few swatches of the three lipsticks in question, I got carried away and decided: I need all three of them!
Innocence Beware! was limited edition and I always regretted that I did not get it, so now I had a second chance. The other two are just the perfect spring brights, which are just on the edge of being wearable to work.


Innocence Beware! (Cremesheen finish) is part of the SHOP MAC Collection is a pinky nude lipstick that is just perfect.

Viva Glam Nicki (Satin finish) is part of the Viva Glam collections which means that all the proceeds support the MAC Aids fund which is a creat cause!
The colour is described as a bright yellow pink, see swatch below.

Watch me Simmer (Amplified finish) is also part of the MAC SHOP Collection and is a bright bright pinky coral colour. This will definitely become one of my favourite spring summer lipsticks.

Excuse my dry lips but I thought that some lipstick swatches on the lips might be quite useful. I wore Viva Glam Nicki the other day to work and and looked amazing and wore a very long time.

What are your favourite spring lipsticks?

So long,...

Saturday OOTD 2

I had a great weekend actually doing nice stuff! Sometimes I am so tired and end up staying at home most of one day of the weekend which is nice, but this weeked I went shopping on Saturday and to Theo's (my boyfriend) band rehearsal on Sunday.

When Deniz tweeted me if I am up to meet Christiana and to go shopping my straight answer was "hell yeah"!
It was my first time visiting the Westfield in White City. I have been to the new one in Stratford before but never in the central one so I was quite excited. I had a great company, Christiana from cosmeticjunkie17 and Deniz from denizandmakeup. Christiana is on a road trip through Europe and London was her first stop. It was really nice meeting her but ever so surreal meeting someone you think you kind of know from YouTube in real-life.

So here is what I wore that day!

Coat: French Conncetion (Sale)
Scarf: Zara (last season)
Bag: Fiorelli (last season)
Swan Sweater: Camden Market
Light Blue Jeans: River Island Link!
Ankle Boots: "Night Rush" from Office Link!

I love those jeans from River Island. The fit is amazing and they are very strechy. I have a pair in black for some time now but when I saw those light blue babies I could not pass them up. Especially as they were reduced to 20 pounds! I think the colour of them is amazing. It is a very light blue but still has a puch and it is unlike any other coloured jeans I have seen in other shops this season. I like them so much that on the day I bought another pair in a pinky, salmon colour. I think they are perfect for spring and you can pair it with brown accessoires as well as black (as I did here) and/or white and for the brave ones under use you could go for colour blocking. At the moment I will stick to the light blue/black combination as I do not feel the spring vibe as much just yet!

So far, so good!
