FASHION | My Top 3 LFW Collections

 I love the craziness of the London shows but it does make it hard to find collections that I can actually take inspiration from for when it comes to dressing myself. However there were a few standouts for me.

BEAUTY | MeMeMe Cosmetics Soft Rose Collection Review


My first thoughts when I opened this gorgeous box of goodies was 'Oooh, so pretty...but so pink. Hm.' Now don't get me wrong, pink is my favourite colour but I rarely put it on my face, not even blush. But it's actually a lot more subtle and wearable than I'd thought! Here's the finished look:

Please excuse my ratty hair!

I used the two browny/bronzey shades (definitely a proper description ok?) from the Baked Quad Eyeshadow in Opulent Eyes, the shades are gorgeous and a little shimmery, which I always prefer over matte shadows. I applied these dry and they were really pigmented, I'd love to try them wet next time for a more dramatic look. I've seen the Beat The Blues Skin Illuminator in Soft Pink in lots of 'favourites' posts and I can see why people love it...it adds just the right amount of prettiness to cheekbones and I dotted a little down my nose too. The Light Me Up Lipgloss in Illuminate is a sweet shade but not really something I'd wear in the daytime as it's quite shimmery and a little glittery. Super pretty for a night time look though! 

Then we have the Shimmer Stack in Pink, which I think is so good it deserves a paragraph of it's own haha. It does look quite intimidating in the pan, especially for a pale girl like me, but it's much more subtle once applied. This is a highlighter but being as ghostie-faced as I am I used it as a blusher and IT IS LOVE. It's just the right shade for me and not too glittery, it highlights just the right amount to give a really flattering glow. From now on it's going to be a staple in my make up routine, I couldn't be without it!

It also comes with a gorgeous nail shade, it's the kind of muted colour that I love.



All in all it's a lovely little set, I think it'd make a lovely gift. I'm looking forward to trying out the pink and purple shades in the Quad, I've been experimenting a lot more with make up lately and I've been loving it...a big thing for a girl who goes bare-faced most days! Would you be interested in seeing a bit more beauty on the blog?

What do you think of this collection? Have you tried anything from MeMeMe Cosmetics before?

FASHION | Oversized Everything

Coat | GAP (similar here)
Jumper | Uniqo Men's
Denim | GAP (similar here)
Shoes | Adidas Superstars II (similar here)

Slightly out of my comfort zone with this because I'm not used to everything being so oversized but at the same time I did feel very comfortable because it was almost like wearing jammies. I'm nowhere near cool enough to pull off that oversized everything look (not like Charlotte or Chloe!!) Next time I think I'll just leave it to the experts. But I will dig these Superstars out a bit more often, I think my Gazelles could do with a break for sure!

So how are you? Having a good week so far? On Sunday after four weeks I finished IVs (yeeeeah boi!) so ever since I've just been enjoying those post-IVs baths very much indeed. This week is just all about catching up with all the jobs that couldn't get done while I was in hospital which is boring but gotta be done! Then the fun can begin, I'm desperate to go for a meal out and maaaaaybe a cocktail or two.

Definitely a cocktail, I'm feeling something rum-based. What's your cocktail of choice?
