Layering Gold Jewellery.

Monday, 19 June 2017

About a week or so ago someone mentioned the brand Bohomoon on Instagram. I checked out their site and really liked the pieces they had. Their jewellery is so cheap and the delivery is only £1.99 too, win! At first I was telling myself 'don't get your hopes up, its cheap it may not be as good as the site says' but when the holographic envelope (I know, holographic!) fell through my letter box I knew I was going to love the items and the brand.

I ordered 3 items, but there are two in particular that I needed to share. I first saw the New Moon necklace and decided to pair that with the Inspire choker. Now I picked these up at £5 each, but currently they back to full price. Just keep your eyes peeled for offers, there is always a bargain to be found.

These pieces are very delicate, I sneezed and the choker did snap (hilarious I know) but the loops just needed tightening up and it was good as new. I also purchased the Moon Rising choker too, but I just wanted to talk about the two gold items because together, they are just heaven!

Have you ever shopped at Bohomoon?

3...May Favourites.

Wednesday, 7 June 2017

Hey guys! I feel like I have been saying this in every post recently, but I apologise for the huge gaps between each blog post. I just don't know where the time is going at all. I mean, we are in June already!! Anyways, I am back today with my May faves.

My first favourite (and definitely a favourite forever) is my new tattoo. Myself, my sister and her boyfriend decided to get the Manchester working bee tattoo in honour of the victims at the Ariana Grande concert. All of the money goes towards the people and families effected by the attack so its nice to know you're helping out, even if it is only in a small way. 

Another fave of mine is the Dermacol foundation. I have seen loads of videos on YouTube about this product, even Jeffree Star did a review on it! I decided to try it out for myself and oh my gosh, I love it. It is a very thick full coverage foundation so I don't wear it everyday. When I do wear this product it makes my skin completely flawless (you only need to use a tiny amount too). The staying power isn't the best, I mean it last for a good while but at the end of the day you can start to see the flaws in my skin. I think this is a product you need to try for yourself, its either a love or a hate.

And last but not least, I am loving the Milani clear brow gel. I ordered this on a whim from Beauty Bay, but I ended up absolutely loving it. It keeps my eyebrows in shape all day, without making them feel crispy. My eyebrows do tend to get a bit crazy, so a product like this is a life saver!

What have been your May faves?

Tassel Earrings.

Sunday, 14 May 2017

I have fallen in love with statement earrings (aka Pat Butcher earrings), especially in tassel form. They add so much more to an otherwise boring outfit. My obsession started when I saw Alex from The Frugality wearing them, she did a whole post here. I've also seen Megan from Pages By Megan supporting them with her sassy outfits.

The pair I am wearing are just a cheap pair from Amazon, they were around £3. I wanted to experiment with a smaller pair, just to make sure I could pull off the trend, before investing in some bolder ones. By bolder I mean big red ones... I just have this image of ruby red tassel earrings, a gingham shirt and bright red lipstick, dreamy!

3... April Favourites.

Tuesday, 9 May 2017

I feel like my favourites are getting a bit repetitive now, but hey it shows how much I love these products right? Also, they are always a bit late aren't they? I mean it's the 9th of May already... where is this year going?! Anyway, lets get into my faves.

So my first fave is the YSL Black Opium perfume. I ALWAYS go on about this, I've loved it for years now (I did a full post on it here). Since Feb I have been using my Jimmy Choo perfume but I was just going through it too quickly, so I decided to go back to my YSL for a little bit. I fell in love with it all over again. In short the scent is very sophisticated but still very sweet.

My next fave is kind of what I covered in my last post. I said I was really loving gold, and that included rediscovering my gold Casio again. I have a silver one which I wear all the time but my gold one is the original, the one I got first for my 18th from my sissy. It is slightly worn now but that just adds to the look of it I guess.

And finally, my love of magazines is back! I used to buy Elle religiously, eagerly waiting each month for the new issue. I don't know what happened but I just stopped getting them, I always bloody do that don't I?!! But I love em again, I love flicking through the pages and getting new inspo. And I am really enjoying using them as props and backdrops for my blog photos, it's a win win situation!

Did you have any April favourite?

Playing With Shadows.

Friday, 5 May 2017
Top-Asos // Jeans-Primark (similar) // Shoes-Birkenstocks // Necklace-H&M (similar)
This is probably going to be one of the most useless posts I have written to date, but I loved how the photos turned out (for a change) so I had to share.

So recently I feel like my photography style has changed. It does every now and again, I seem to just naturally drift into a different direction with my style. For the most part it has always been bright white with minimal or muted colour. I still love that kind of look and it will probably remain like that over on my Instagram a little while longer, but as for my blog I am changing it up.

I have started to embrace the shadows around my house. On my stairs/landing the most beautiful shadows land on the floor and walls. I had a mini photo shoot (sad, I know) and loved the way the images turned out. As well as playing with shadows I have come to love warmer tones, like browns, beiges and gold. My images tend to get 'cold' looking with all the white and monochrome, so warming them up gives more of a sophisticated look... thats what I think anyway haha!

I was mostly inspired by Eimear from The EVB Edit. She shows a lot of the behind the scenes on her Instagram stories. She is always creating shadows and using different textures for her back drops, her images turn out stunning. Kate from Kate La Vie inspired me a lot too. I love the way she has a cluttered but organised theme and her images always look 'warmer' with the wooden and golden accents she adds to her images.

Who inspires your photography style?
