Hello! I've been watching beauty videos on YouTube for years and never was able to jump on a eye shadow palette bandwagon, ( through lack of money #studentlife) but recently with all the buzz going on around Huda Beauty I thought now is the time to try some luxury make up. Now I will start by saying that I don't normally spend so much on one makeup product, but I've been working non-stop since December and thought this would be my treat for the month. Now I first heard about this palette on YouTube when it was released last year and it's been sold out everywhere since, until I got an email last week saying it was finally back in stock. I bought it from cult beauty which is the only U.K website that sells it, available Here . There are mixed reviews mainly because people had difficulty applying the textured shadows in the top row, but Huda explains in a video you have to use your fingers to apply them, which can save a lot of hassle.
I love the colour range in this palette and the multiple textures, also I think its great that you get 18 shadows in one palette. I only have one negative, Rose gold in the top row doesn't blend as easy as the other textured eye shadows, compared to Dubai which blends like silk it feels like rose gold has a different formula than the rest. The shadows with a glitter 'look' don't have any fall out which is brilliant and the shade Angelic is MOST beautiful colour! oh my goodness its the perfect gold/pink iridescence.
Now there is a lot and I mean A LOT of positive reviews for the Anastasia modern renaissance palette in terms of the pigmentation of the shadows, I can't compare the two, but these shadows have great pigmentation. I have tried these on my eyes but I haven't worn them for a whole day so I can't say how well they wear. Overall I think this palette is great, this is one of my first high-end palettes so I am not able to compare it with others yet but I do love the wide range of colours you are given.

Grey days

Coat: Missguided Cap: Lamoda Jumper: M&S  Jeans: Asos Trainers: Office
Hello people! I woke up and saw that it was grey outside and I thought to myself grey outfit! I love this coat so much so much so that also got it in camel. I'm just obsessed with the style of it, it  can be glammed up or thrown on for a casual outfit. Am I crazy that I still would want it just 2 inches longer? I'm 5ft 9 and love the look of ankle length duster jackets but its hard to find ones that are the perfect length. When buying this coat I did read all the reviews on the misguided website and bought a size 12 rather than a 14 because everyone said to size down and I'm so happy I did.

Camel coat lovin'

      Coat: Missguided | Jumper: M&S | Jeans: ASOS | Boots: ASOS | Hat: Primark
Wow we are in 2017! I hope you have been enjoying January, I've been working non-stop which has lead to me buying  lots of foot masks and skechers. I bought this coat in the missguided boxing day sale for £40 from £60, I've been eyeing up a lot of different camel coats and this one was the only one with the right length. I paired it with an all black outfit so it would stand out more, I have fallen in love with this cut out jumper especially since it was £9.99 ( thank you sale ). I always thought cut out tops were just for summer until I found the beautiful world of cut out jumpers, which saves a outfit from being too plain. My aim this year in fashion  is to dress more feminine, I hardly wear skirts and I always feel that skirts can add a extra bit of glam to an outfit, I would normally wear a polo neck with this outfit but thought this top would give a girly touch.
As for the new year I don't have resolutions per say but monthly goals that are achievable through small changes. Generally speaking I want to have a year of self love, where I'm less self critical and put my mental wellbeing before anything else. I began meditating last year September and it has truly changed my daily life, I plan to try different ones this year and do them for longer.
