Playsuit OOTD

Playsuit – H&M|Shoes – Topshop.

*I promise I will do a full OOTD soon and also get a new background!*

I recently somehow had a Saturday night off from work and rounded up my wonderful girls for a night of cocktails. I picked this new jumpsuit which I snapped up in the H&M sale. Its not the warmest of outfits but it made me feel very tall and glamorous. I loved the monochrome of the playsuit so opted for a nice colour pop shoe; these Topshop ones are a gorgeous orangey red with a little heel.

With a print this busy I opted to keep everything else simple.

I think this photo set proves that I really need to work on my posing skills!

Hollywood Hair

P1180776

Last week I had my first mini assessment at Delamar and although I haven’t really been keeping you all updated on what i’ve been doing – bar the large number of instagrams I have been taking. I though I would show you what I created during Hollywood Hair week. Now if you have read my blog for a while then you will know that I am not exactly a hair expert but under the instruction of Anna Winterburn I managed to create a whole look.

My whole look was inspired not only by the gorgeous colour of Jen’s hair but also by the idea of a candy canes and strawberries and cream.

P1180788

I started out by moussing and blowdrying Jens hair to create texture before adding in blonde wefts to create the strawberries and cream effect before adding some padding to the crown of the head. After a quick little bit of backcombing and smoothing I had created a good amount of volume at the top of the head.

I then tonged it all with a Babyliss Pro Conical Wand and left the curls as they were. As a finishing touch I pinned some plaited wefts into the curls, the front of the hair and to cover up any messy bits at the back before popping in two lollipops to make the look slightly more Avante Garde.

I love the look I created on Jen and I love the look she did on me as well I felt like a fairy princess prancing about the makeup room.

Everyone in my class created amazing looks and I can’t wait to share more of the hair skills I have learnt with you guys!

Illamasqua Demo with Delamar College

P1180751P1180758P1180755P1180805

Due to my make-up course I got the opportunity to to the Illamasqua flagship store in Beak Street for a demo evening and then free reign of the store. After battling the rush hour we arrived at the store – which is beautiful and where ushered into a little side room where they hold make-up classes.

Our hour long demo was taken by the talented Tonee Roberio who has worked with many celebrities including Kylie Minogue, Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell. He talked us through each product he was using on his dark vampy night time look, although part of it was to sell us the products it was also just a great opportunity to know more about the products Illamasqua has and how to use them. Illamasqua has a really unique way of doing make up they go against the usual structure to create these gorgeous ethereal looks which break a lot of boundaries.

After the demo we were let loose in the store, I picked up Hollow Cream Pigment which I have been wanting for ages, Skin Base in SB 3.5 and an Eye Shadow in Stealth. I can’t wait to try out all the products and the packaging is beautiful.

I’m not sure that the demo evenings are available to all but if you want to learn more about the company or how they apply the make-up then I would highly suggest trying one of their 2-3 hour courses.

Jeans – New Look|Crop Top – H&M (similar)|Shoes – Converse (similar)|Rucksack – DKNY (similar).

Just a quick little OOTD for a recent trip to the bowling alley. I hadn’t been bowling since I was like 14 and as I suspected I was still awful at it, however I loved my simple but stylish outfit.

Comfy jeans with lots of movement and a crop top perfect for the autumn weather. Chucked all my junk in my DKNY back pack and headed for the bowling alley in my go with everything converse.

Jumper – H&M (similar)|Shirt – H&M (similar)|Jeans – New Look|Boots – Kurt Geiger (similar)|Bag – DKNY (similar).

The weather was perfect on Saturday; breezy but not so cold that I had to put a jacket on so my mum and I decided to go for a walk in the afternoon. I wanted to wear something that was comfortable and warm and my H&M combo is perfect for this, although the colours are a little more spring like I love how they look with the browning leaves. My New Look jeans are some of the comfiest I own with an elasticated waistband and form fitting but not too tight. I had to whip out my Kurt Geiger boots they are some of my autumn staples. My DKNY bag was slightly oversized for the walk housing only my camera and my phone but it’s a go with everything type of bag and is great for filling up with junk. After a lovely walk we stopped for a cup of tea before heading home.

Thanks to my lovely mum for taking my outfit post photos she does nearly all of them on my blog and I think has finally stopped thinking its odd!

A Spooky Day at Disneyland Paris

P1180331As an extra little birthday present K and I set off for a little spooky day trip to Disneyland.

The weather was fantastic and after a very early start we finally got into Disneyland just before lunchtime and raced to join the ridiculously long queue for Crushes Coaster in the Studios. After hurtling around at top speed we made our way back to the Park and like we do every year gazed at the castle. I seriously want to live here.

After taking the usual snaps the first parade of the day occurred and yes I made my way to the front like a stroppy little child to wave and squeal at all my favourite characters.

P1180393P1180411P1180379

Due to the release of Maleficent earlier in the year the courtyard of the castle had been taken over by Maleficent and her court this was super cool to see all the villains out and about and they were interacting with everyone a lot more than they did last year.

Not only were the villains out to play but Jack and Sally were having a meet and greet, they were so super sweet and chatted to everyone. I am always amazed at how many languages the cast members can speak!

We ended the day watching the afternoon parade which is always my favourite part.

Sadly after such a fun day we got stranded in Paris and had to wend our way back to the UK on a coach, but that’s a story for another time.

Vitapointe|Review

P1180298

 

Vitapointe£2.29

This little gem hides itself in the haircare aisle next to the old school brands like Pro:Voke and T-Gel it may be an oldie but it is also a goodie. I was introduced to this leave in conditioner during my training as a Make Up Artist and it has not left my side since. It comes in cream form and a small pea sized amount will tame any fly aways, create shine and help dry ends.

It is a lot like a combination of  a serum, split end remedy and shine spray rolled into a cream that has been used for ages and at under £3.00 you can’t really say no. It might not look fancy but it can work magic; however make sure you don’t use too much of this as it can make your hair look a little bit greasy.

Although it looks like something your grandma might use this is a inexpensive and fantastic alternative to all those other lotions and potions for taming, shining and conditioning.
