MEMEME COSMETICS | REVIEW

Dark & Divine Mascara - MeMeMe Cosmetics  
Eye Sweep Precision Eye Liner  - MeMeMe Cosmetics

As a girl who loves makeup I'm always very excited for the chance to try out new things. So when the lovely people at MeMeME Cosmetics contacted me to pick some samples to review I jumped at the chance to do so. Let's start off with the Mascara here, MeMeMe Cosmetics have the Dark & Divine Mascara, which is absolutely incred! I kid you not, I've had so many compliments from people whilst wearing this. I've had numerous and extremely awkward conversations that seems to include the utterances 'are your eyelashes real?!' Obviously I'm quiet offended when I reply back 'yes' and I'm kind of proud at the same time because this mascara leaves my eyelashes looking longer, fuller and thicker.

The eyeliner from MeMeMe Cosmetics is also really great. I'll be honest, I've always been a liquid eyeliner kind of girl because it's what worked well for me. Well, at least I thought I did until I tried the Eye Sweep Precision Eye Liner Pen that is. The eyeliner is amazing because I feel like I have more control over the cat eye liner look that I tend to rock. The eyeliner is no fuss and no mess and is all I could ever want in an eyeliner. The fact that the colour is a deep black colour is what made me really like this in all honesty, because I like the bold look that doesn't look like it's fading on my skin.

It's so exciting to find a high quality makeup brand that you know that every product is worth each penny. I normally purely go for MAC products because they have served me well all these years and I am not always easily impressed by other brands but these products are awesome!

WATCH THIS SPACE!


Watch - Sekonda*

I've been online stalking white watches on several jewellery sites for a while now and finally one is mine! I found myself on the House Of Watches site and stopped my search instantly when I spotted the Sekonda Ladies Editions Watch 4219

I literally feel like Gollum from The Lord Of The Rings because this watch is definitely ' my precioussss', not in a creepy way obvs. My watch is by Sekonda and they are a household name in their own right. Sekonda has been around for years and years and they have perfected the art of creating incredible watches. They’ve even been named the best selling watch brand in the UK for the past 20 years, so I'd imagine that they must be doing something right!

The watch's design suits my style down to a t. I consider my personal style to be classy, minimal and timeless; all three things that 4219 watch undeniably is. Obviously the watch can easily be a statement maker on it’s own, but I would on some days, just to switch up my look a little also pair it with some bangles or bracelets depending on the look that I’d be going for. Fashion is afterall about having fun with your accessories!

I hadn't seen this Sekonda watch in person, only online, before it was sent to me, but I loved it instantly when I received it. The white leather strap is quite slim and is very flattering on a ladies wrist, along with putting emphasis on the over-sized dial and lets also not forget about the charming 3 stone set on the 12 o’clock that complements the design really well.


So if your looking for a beautifully made watch, I would recommend this as a perfect Christmas present or maybe a cheeky early gift for yourself!

DENIM JACKETING | OOTD

Denim Jacket - similar here 
 Strappy Ankle Boots - Primark (similar here
Black Cami Midi Dress - MissGuided (similar here

I 've had such a great week so far and it's only Tuesday. This week alone I am the proud owner of a new car. I've called her 'Mercy', which I think suits her. It's 'Mercy' after the Kanye West song and Mercy because it's my bit of kindness that's saved me from my old car, of which had served me well but was ready to retire.  Believe you me, the few minutes that I spent taking these blog photos are probably the only few minutes I spent not driving around! Ok enough about my excitement and let's discuss what I have on. I wearing a denim jacket that I got from god knows where! It's been in my wardrobe for yonks but is always a fave to bring out every now and then. I wore the jacket with my black cami dress from Missguided and some ankle strap heels that are literally the most comfortable shoes ever! The last accessory of this look is my fur bag which is incred, I kid you not, it's the softest thing ever and is a statement maker in it's own right.

Now if you'll all excuse me, I'm off to go drive around again now...

Let's Dance In Style. Let's Dance For A While | OOTD

Top- ASOS
 Ankle Strap Heels - Topshop
Wool Tube Skirt - Primark
Sunglasses - New Look

As we wave goodbye to summer I find it more exciting to add some more autumn pieces to my wardrobe.  I am more of an autumn winter person, rather than summer, as I l love layering up my clothes and wearing darker colours.  This post was mused by what I consider to be autumn trends with this lovely long tube skirt that is made of wool (yes, warmth and style in one clothing item- amazing!) that I paired with a cami and ankle strap heels.  This look is so chic and effortless that I can imagine myself wearing it over and over again  all season long!

WONDERLUK 'MIRAGE' | REVIEW


Mirage Necklace* - Wonderluk  

Meet the 'Mirage' lovelies! No.... I'm not talking about the hotel chains in Vegas, I am talking about the amazing neckcandy that I have on thanks to 3D Printing. The best part about having this necklace is the fact that it's so unique no like anything else out there. As I like to say time and time again, it's always best to buy a original and classic piece rather than wear what likely every other person out there is wearing. Especially with jewellery, I guess it sort of add some value to a piece.

ANYHOO - let's not forget the rest of my outfit. I'm wearing a Missguided midi dress and some heels. A simple outfit, elevated by a statement making neckpiece. Make sure that you also check out Wonderluk's site for more pieces, you're guaranteed to find a 3D printed piece that you'll love. For any of you in London you can head on over to Topshop Oxford Circus as they have a pop up store in there from Nov 2nd - December 27th - thank me later.

WINTER WONDERLAND | OOTD


Ankle Boots - Bershka 
Crop Top - Boohoo  
Midi Skirt - Topshop 

Ok so this look was a little risky for me. Risky not in the sense that I was showing too much skin, but risky because I almost never ever wear white because my foundation gets all over my clothes from everytime I touch my face. But it's almost Christmas and I was feeling all Winter Wonderlandy, so I said screw it and I went for!  I felt amazing in this look and the jacket I'm wearing here is something that I saw on my mum and I asked her if I can borrow it (forever, but she doesn't know that yet, come Christmas I'll just ask her if I can keep it as one of my gifts lol).

'NUDE' BY RIHANNA | SAVE ON MAKEUP REVIEW

Nude by Rihanna* - Save On Makeup 
Use the code 'SOM FREE GIFTS' in the 'order notes' section to get two free gifts with your order. 

Happy Cyber Weekend! I think you have all been like myself this weekend and have tried your best to take advantage of every single deal out there. This is why I am really excited to tell you all about one of my tricks for shopping cleverly. Let's start off with one of my favourite fragrances out there, 'Nude' by Rihanna, which is a very light but lasting feminine and high end classy smell.  Even the packaging of the perfume reflects this, we are shown a smiley and soft looking Rihanna, in contrast to the edgy and daring style. Rihanna perfumes are the unsung heroes of the fragrance world. They smell amazingly fresh and feminine, whilst being affordable at the same time. And the make this 'affordable' factor even more appealing I'd need to introduce you all to Save On Makeup. They are an online beauty retailer who are selling the perfume at an incredibly low price at 75% off the RRP all year long and not just this weekend!

Save On Makeup is also great because they also sell makeup for low prices and because with each purchase you will also get two free gifts. So without really advertising it that way,  it is sort of a buy one thing get two items free outcome. Check them out and let me know if you managed to find any great bargains on your search.

It was really unlucky that as I stepped out to take these blog photos it started raining, meh –typical of English weather!

And no, I didn't forget this new handbag, I was simply saving the best for last. This handbag is from Topshop and it is purrrrfect. It's simple, chic and most importantly it’s a solid investment as the material I of high quality so I will be getting many, many wears from this!
