Slidin' into Summer


Okay, I'll admit I'm low-key proud of that title, has a nice ring to it don't ya think? It's not 100% on point because this post is about slides and mules but it'll do. So like I was saying, mules and slides are probably the footwear of the season, especially the former. When Gucci came out with the Princetown mules , I was in loooooove. Too bad the only way I could afford a pair was to probably take shelter on the streets and starve my broke student ass for a year. Slight exaggeration but the way my bank account was looking at the time, it didn't seem like such a stretch. I was so glad when the trend trickled down into high street stores and a majority of retailers started producing their own version of mules. You can probably find them at any high street store now!

Dainty necklaces


I love jewellery but I never really wear any all that often. Most of the time, I just forget really. It's like I'll do my makeup, hair, outfit and boom, I'm straight out the door. I always forget to put on a few rings or a necklace. Which is a shame really because I love how a couple of accessories can effortlessly complete a look. However, as of recent I've begun to incorporate a few simple jewellery pieces to jazz up my outfits a little. Especially with my recent obsession with off shoulder tops (I kid you not my closet is slowly being taken over by the bardot trend), I always try to add a few necklaces or chokers so that my décolletage area isn't so bare. Lately, I really love layering more dainty pieces of necklaces and chokers. Don't get me wrong, I love a good ol' statement necklace but most of the time, especially for everyday wear, I rather opt for a few simple dainty pieces. It's just such an effortless way to add on to a simple outfit, makes it seem like you made way more of an effort than you really did (which is always a win in my book). I got all the pieces in the photos from either H&M or Forever 21. Definitely good places to scout for affordable accessories. I try not to spend too much because I tend to lose my jewellery really easily, like I'll start my day with maybe 5 rings on my hands and come home to realise I've only got 3 on instead. So I try to spend as little as possible on accessories when I can. I also try choosing a few more sophisticated pieces that I feel would work for most occasions. I just realise that I tend to pick up more gold pieces rather than silver but to be honest, I usually switch up between the two colours depending on my outfits. Might just try to expand my silver collection a little more.

Talk soon xx

Day in Manchester + OOTD


I don't know how true this statement rings but I've heard that "Manchester is the better London". It's a pretty outlandish/controversial statement as half of the people I know seem to agree while the other half just laugh. I've been to London quite a few times and the city never really spoke to me, it was never one my favourite places to visit. I'll admit I haven't properly explored London yet but for now, I have to admit that Manchester definitely takes the cake for me.

A few new makeup bits


Hello, I haven't bought any new makeup in quite a while considering I just finished my final papers for my first semester, basically caring how I look goes completely out the window during exam season. I figured I couldn't think of any better way to spend a little bit of my Christmas money then on some new additions to my little makeup collection. So on a little shopping trip to the mall, my friend and I stopped by Nars, initially just to re-purchase our concealer. We both use the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer and I picked up mine in Caramel. Honestly, the best part about this collection has got to be the shade range. It's so difficult to find a drugstore concealer that works for me because most of the shades available are all to fair to suit me so I decided to venture into Nars instead. The steep price is a little worth it though, the concealer is creamy, blends beautifully and matches my skin perfectly however the lasting power isn't as spectacular.
