To be honest, I’ve never been the kind of person who tries to stay ahead of the trends, but when Boots* challenged me to try out a makeup look based on the newest trends for the summer, I couldn’t resist!!
I have a story to tell about finding the right pair of boots for autumn! About a year ago, I bought a gorgeous pair of tan coloured boots from Debenhams. They fit really nicely and they look quite smart, with not too much of a heel on them. The only issue is that because they’re tan, they don’t go with anything I own. At all.
So I recently went on a mission to find the perfect pair of boots in black. This is a bit like my dungarees story, but thankfully much, much shorter!
So remember back in January and I posted my first outfit of the day post and I said it probably wouldn’t become a regular feature? Well today I’m having a good body image day so to celebrate, I’m sharing another outfit of the day. Because who knows when I’ll feel this good about my wobbly tum and slightly too large thighs again?
Bloody hell, I swear this was entirely accidental! I don’t generally tend to follow the trends (except maybe my beloved Rimmel 107 ♥) but my recent purchases seem to be absolutely perfect for spring. What have I become?!
I can’t believe September is nearly over 🙁 I do love autumn/winter, especially as it’s when J and I got together 🙂 but I’m not a fan of dark mornings and freezing my arse off at bus stops in the pouring rain (J takes our car to work) 🙁 Anyway, here’s what I’ve been loving this month <3
Read all about my previous purchase post here!
First up for review is the Sleek Brow Kit (Light). To be honest, I bought it as Boots only had one eyeshadow palette I wanted and I didn’t have the patience or the wet wipes to be trying out lipsticks and glosses.
So if you’ve been following my blog adventure, you’ll know that I’ve been wanting green eyeshadow palette for a while now. J recently found a really, really old £10 Boots voucher while tidying and said I could have it to expand my make-up collection (isn’t he the best?) I think it was really because he couldn’t be bothered to go and spend it himself, but hey, all the better for me, right? It also turns out that Sleek are having a 2 for £10 at Boots at the moment! Coincidence? I think not!
It’s time for part two where I show you another section of my make-up bag.
