I absolutely love e.l.f! Their studio range is such good quality and they have some beautiful shades of eyeshadows and lipsticks. My favourite item they sell has to be the studio matte lip colour in Praline, the neutral brownish colour really compliments caramel skin tones and stays on the lips for hours.

The other day e.l.f had one of their 50% off flash promotions and of course I went insane and purchased far too many things I didn't need. There was a minimum spend of £20 and I struggled to find £40 worth of stuff I wanted so I asked my friends if they wanted anything and we shared an order. I can't believe we ended up buying £70 worth of makeup between the five of us. If you've ever been on the website, you'll know that everything is pretty cheap with most of the makeup ranging from £1-£5. So you can imagine how many items we must have bought to get £70 worth, all for only £35!

After a pretty hectic weekend I thought it would be quite nice to have an easy going Sunday in my pjs, in front of the TV. The whether was pretty terrible today so that gave me even more reason to stay in. Unsurprisingly, I got bored pretty quickly so I decided to go up to London for a bit and do a little shopping. Myself and my friend Elena ended up going to London Bridge rather than London Victoria by accident and so decided to walk along the Thames until we found a bus stop allowing us to get to Oxford Street. On our way we found quite a few cute locations so I took a few photos which I thought I'd show you all a few:

I honestly can't believe how quickly the summer has gone by this year. I go back to school tomorrow and I can't decide if i'm excited to go back or extremely depressed about the whole school situation haha.
Anyway, the other day I did a little shoot for something I hope to show everyone more of later on, but for now I thought I'd share a picture from that day. I'm in love with the film Clueless and most of the outfits in the film so I thought it would be cute to make the shoot Clueless themed. I also thought it would be quite fitting with the idea of going back to school too. I had such a cute time taking these photos for something I cannot wait to show you guys, I've been working on this "project" for over a year and everything is finally coming together. Hopefully it won't be too long now:)

Hey guys!! On friday night myself and my cousin decided it would be nice to get away for the weekend so we booked a room in Reading and drove out there the next day. The hotel was absolutely beautiful so I thought I'd show you a few pictures of where we stayed and what we wore ect. I had such a cute weekend, although I did miss London. I was away for 2 days and I began to get withdrawal symptoms haha (slightly worrying). Nevertheless, Reading was beautiful and it was nice to visit somewhere new. I love spontaneous trips and I had so much fun and ate soo much food.

After two weeks of gallivanting around London, working and watching pretty much the whole box set of Gossip Girl, i've decided that I really want to start blogging more often. So starting today i'm going to post as often as possible over the summer.

Standard bipolar weather has been one of the highlights of my day in sunny/rainy London. I spent the majority of the day reading and watching tv in bed (story of my life) but I went out in the evening to Pizza Express with a few friends and ate lots of yummy food and now i'm lying in bed in a food coma with some tea watching Kick-Ass haha. So a pretty standard day overall ;)
Thought i'd show you my outfit from today woohooooo #tootiredtobeblogging #noneofthismakessense #hashtaggingisunacceptable
Striped top: Charity Shop £3?
Leather skirt: Primark £8
Tardy boots: Jeffrey Campbell £60

Hey guys!!!! Hope you're all well! I have an exam tomorrow but I really wanted to do this post quickly.(Procrastinating like pro;) A few months ago I was asked if I wanted to be the cover girl for the spring/summer issue of T! magazine and of course I said yes ahha:) The issue came out this week and i'm super excited about the whole thing hahah. The magazine is super cute and written by teenagers for teenagers which I think is a really sweet idea, theres nothing worse than 50 year olds thinking they can relate to us by using words like "lmao" and "yolo" (maybe thats just my dad) ahah. Check out the mag if you can and let me know your thoughts:) xtine xxx
