Off duty

Sometimes you can't be bothered to try too hard with your outfit but still wanna look good. Cue the off duty look - in my case, usually consisting of one of the bf 's jumpers and either leggings or joggers. I decided to sling my glasses on as I just wasn't in the mood for contact lenses. It was definitely a lazy/busy day. 

After a slight blogging hiatus, I'm back! I guess it looks like I haven't tried to hard with my photos too - I'm sorry! It's my boyfriend's iPhone - there must be a way to make the photos look better. We must be missing something; anyone care to enlighten us? Will be back to quality photographs ASAP

Hope you're having a great week

Jacket, Joggers & Polaroids

Hi guys! I've had three glorious days off work this week so I decided to spend them in the sunshine. Here I am at Beacon Park in Lichfield, wearing the most comfortable joggers ever that you may have seen featured in my last OOTD. They are like pajamas, but stylish. 

You may have noticed my snazzy pink Instax Mini 8 case - I recently picked this one up from Amazon for a mere £9.99! It's the perfect way to protect my pretty little camera. What have you guys been up to during the rare days of sunshine we've been having?

Hope you're enjoying the lovely weather

Lazy Look

This is my attempt at staying comfy yet stylish. I threw on a pair of slouchy joggers and this no-fuss jumper with my latest slingback kitten heels, this time in black. I think the shoes pulled the outfit together and made it look more off-duty and less 'I'm-wearing-my-PJs'. 

I went out for dinner with my boyfriend and brother today so I wanted to look presentable with little effort. That's why this shoes are such a great staple - paired with literally anything, they take an outfit from okay to amazing.

Pastel Kitten Heels & Smart Trousers

Sorry about the brightness of these photos - I fiddled with the settings on my camera but couldn't get the exposure quite right. I edited them a little so you can see the colours better. I absolutely love these shoes, so much so I purchased them in black too, so I could style them with more outfits. The scrummy colour is perfect for the Summer - I just can't stop looking at them! 

This is what I wore for a meal with my boyfriend and his friends. We were going to a nice restaurant in Brindley Place so i wanted to look casual yet polished. These trousers from H&M are a total staple for me - they just look so smart and slick.

What are your style staples this season?

My 22nd Birthday

So the ninth of May was my twenty second birthday - eek! The time has gone so incredibly fast it's insane. I decided to have pretty low-key celebrations this year and went out for a meal and drinks with a few friends. I've been rocking the middle part for a week or so on and off - it's an easy way to update your look and disguise the fact that your fringe has all but completely grown out. I really need a haircut. Well, it is my birthday, maybe I ought to treat myself.

I adore this dress - it's so pretty and feminine but it could easily be toughened up with boots and a leather jacket. However, I chose to keep my look somewhat demure with a smart black blazer and my summer staple silver flats. 

What do you think of my birthday outfit?

Recently, I've been dressing rather smartly so this fun little outfit was a nice change. As you can see, I've accessorised my new top with pet hair. With a house full of fur babies, it's pretty much impossible to keep unwanted fluff off your person. However, I hope it isn't too distracting as I really love this new crop from The Ragged Priest I spied in the ASOS sale - I think it suits me to a tee (pardon the pun). I'm quite an awkward person by nature and often find myself cringing.

I could not resist these silver mules either - I just knew they'd go with so many things and add a up-to-date chic look to any outfit - and they do! I will admit that having worn them for the first time today and walked a little dog that decided to pull me down the straight after the leaves, they do cut into your feet a tad. I'm hoping that as they are worn more they will begin to loosen up, but I thought I'd offer a warning just in case any of you thought about picking a pair up for yourself.

Hope you have a great week!

Current Beauty Favourites

Vichy Dermablend
I have been using this on and off (but mostly on) for about a year, and I always seem to go back to it. At £16, the price is right, and even though my skin has improved dramatically from when I first purchased, I love the coverage. One qualm I have with this foundation is the lack of choice when it comes to colours - the palest shade Opal can sometimes look a little orange for me if I use too much and I don't think the darkest shade would be useful for black skin. For now, this is my favourite foundation as it is almost perfect.

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge
I bought this on a whim with my built up Boots advantage points and I am so pleased I did. My foundation has never looked so flawless and I am convinced that a sponge is the best way to apply makeup, I'm just mad I'm only now realising! However, I've only had it for about three weeks and it has a significant amount of tears in it from washing, so I'm curious to see how long it will last. 

Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara
My favourite mascara to date, I'd recommend this to anyone who wants a lengthening effect. Until I can afford to try out the much coveted Benefit They're Real mascara, I'll be buying this product for the foreseeable future.

Rimmel Moisture Renew Nude Delight 700
In my opinion, this is the perfect nude lipstick on a budget. The colour is subtle and long-lasting and feels moisturising on the lips. At £6.49, it's pretty cheap and at Boots, they currently are offering Rimmel products at 3 for 2.

Baby Oil
I swapped my old moisturiser for this about a year ago after my sister's recommendation. I have to say, my skin is softer than it has been for years. I have senstive skin on my chest and this is gentle enough not to irritate it. Between two and three pounds, you can't go wrong. This bottle has lasted since September.

Do you use any of these products?
