Current Favourite

Recently I've been loving eye shadow. But I haven't found the courage to splurge for the mac paint pot bases so I've found a cheaper alternative. I LOVE the Maybelline Colour tattoo in On and On Bronze. It is absolutely amazing for my everyday look, of gold glitter on the lid and matte mauve on the outer corner. I use it almost everyday and it keeps my eye shadow in place all day. I really want to try other colours in the range!

The Show

So this week was show week- and I'm SO depressed that it's over. 7 months just disappear in 5 days. It's crazy. I've enjoyed it honestly so much- and being one of my first Leads in a show I have had the most fun ever on this show. Made so many long term friends. For those wondering- the production was 'Little Shop Of Horrors'

Where have I been?

I'm so sorry it's been a while, I've been very busy and I will explain why now. 

I've been rehearsing for a show I'm in. It's called little shop of horrors. I'm on the far left, and my character is called Ronette. I've enjoyed this show so much, it is such a theatrical show and great for any theatre new comers as it's not too challenging. 

I've been doing a lot of school work recently. We went on a school trip to a cute town called bake well and I found a bridge which had all these little cute padlocks which couples and families have put on here. It is so cute to just read them.

My Current Fashion Obsessions

Recently I've been really obsessed with certain fashion trends, some of them I have created myself and some of them I can only dream I will someday get to try out.


When I say mesh I don't mean like gym lad vest mesh, I mean really sheer chiffon. I saw a picture on tumblr of such a perfect combo and I have just ordered my own mesh t shirt from Ark. If I pair it with a black crop top and some denim shorts it will look fab.

Two Piece Outfits

Basically Kim Kardashian's contribution to fashion. I love how these two piece outfits show up the best parts of a curvy woman's body. 

Fur Vests

A little faux fur never hurt nobody? I LOVE faux fur, it adds so much class to an outfit and when worn correctly it leaves me speechless.

Thankyou So Much for reading!

So last weekend, I went on a performing arts trip to London. I had such a good time and I thought I'd share the pictures with you all! I go to London quite often but I never really do the touristy stuff so it was really fun.

January Favorites

January has been an interesting month for me to say the least. We are only 1 month in to 2015 and I can tell its going to be a great year. I'm excited for the ups this year but maybe a bit worried for the downs. Anyway, I'm going to be sharing with you my January favorites- things that have gotten me through this FREEZING month.

First of all is my Boucle coat from H and M. This coat is the perfect compromise between fashion and practicality, as it keeps you super warm, and is really on trend and easy to throw over any outfit to spice it up.

Second of all is my high heeled tan Chelsea boots from New Look. You wouldn't think they were comfortable but because of the wide heel they are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. They are really versatile and add a lot of height.

Then an off topic item is my ukelele. I'm not a musical person and I can't play many instruments but the ukulele is so fun and easy and it's great to have a sing along to with your mates around the fire. It's also a really good cure to boredom.

Then my final favourite is a drink. Chocolate milk. It's so underrated and I love it so much! It's really refreshing, however really unhealthy.

Instant Teeth Whitening Kit Review

As a dancer- white teeth are an essential for amazing stage presence. Over Christmas I may of drank a tad too many soda drinks, which may of made my teeth slightly- off white. So I invested in an instant whitening kit. And I'm going to review it for you.

The kit comes with 4 components. 14 teeth whitening strips, a whitening toothpaste, whitening accelerator, and a tooth polish. The whitening process is set to go over 7 days. 

For me the whitening strips worked for about 4 days then i drank a can of soda which seemed to take me back too square one. They were very gradual but tasted really disgusting, and because they dissolved, this horrible sticky goo was left in your teeth until you brushed them. But to be fair they did work.

Before you use the whitening strips you were supposed to push this accelerator thing on your teeth. I forgot to do this a couple times but it didnt really make a difference i feel, so it didnt matter.

The component that did it most for me is the whitening tooth paste. After about 3 days I saw SERIOUS results and it left my mouth really clean and smooth. I wish they sold this separately because it works really well. 

Lastly it was the tooth polish. I have had a love hate relationship with this stuff. Its nice because you can drink soda without worrying it will stain your teeth but it feels really unpleasant and that you have something constantly o your teeth, so I ended up scraping it off out of boredom.

I'd say over all my teeth are about 2 shades lighter. They are really white just after brushing but then kind of get darker throughout the day which is confusing. I bought it for twenty pounds on sale from fourty so its good value!

How To Strengthen Ankles For Dancers

I must apologize if you're a non-dancer before I start, however if you play Netball or Hockey, these will improve your game as well! If you've read my previous posts, you will know I've recently been on crutches so I have to strengthen up my ankles again, so why not make a cheeky little post about it.

Releve Rises

So first is an exercise very specific to dance. By simply raising your heels so you are completely on the balls of your feet is a great ankle and calf strengthener. It may seem hard at first but only rise as high as you can go without your ankle shaking because if your ankles shake too much you could cause an injury. Also keep your weight over your big toes. When you get really good you can  do single releve on one foot. Repeat the releve 40 times for a good strengthen.

Resistance Band 

I know what you're thinking- not really an easy exercise if I don't have one of these things. Well first of all resistance bands can be found for  only two pounds in Primark! WOW! But also you can get them from any online dance shops, gym shops, or even a pair of tights will work! 

All you have to do is wrap the band around the balls of your feet whilst your foot is flexed, then point your feet without scrunching your toes. You don't need to point the toes because its a ankle exercise and the band will stay on for longer if you don't move your toes too much.

Heel Drops

Find a small box or a step to stand on. Put the ball of your foot on the actual step with your heels dangling off the edge. Let your heels go down, and then use your ankles to bring them back up to a right angle with your toes. This will also stretch your calves.

Thankyou so much for reading and I hope this helps!

Fitness Inspiration

Like my eye makeup inspiration- this will be a lot similar. I am currently on a diet- I mentioned in my sales haul post I was on a journey to drop a dress size and fit into my goal jeans- I DID! I'll admit I'm very bad at dieting. I can't help but cave in for something I crave. But if I'm being honest, what I've found is, if you down a cup of green tea, then go for a run- its alright! (This is no scientific conclusion but it works for me)

First of all, my ultimate inspiration is Emily Ratakjowski. If you don't know who she is put it this way- the brunette in the Blurred Lines video. She has the PERFECT body, and guess what. She had it from a young age so she has had it given to her on a plate. So unfair. She has a tight little waist, a toned bum and skinny legs, what more could you want of a body?

See what I mean? WISH I had her body.

Not only has she got a great body- but a KILLER sense of style as well. I love this little blue dress, it makes her legs look long and elegant and the baby blue makes her olive skin tone pop.

Secondly, I take inspiration from the Spring Breakers girls. They are the complete opposite reason from why I love Emily. I love the spring breakers girls because they haven't got the standardized 'model' body like Emily, however they do have a little extra on them, meaning they aren't twigs, but they have amazing bodies, which I think are really hot.

Eye Makeup Inspiration

My favorite thing about makeup is dressing up the eyes. I have gathered alot of inspiration from countless youtubers, but I can knock it down to two that I watch the most. 

The first is Vivian Vo-Farmer. No doubt you would of seen her before on instagram, or twitter as she is very well known for her beauty and style. She is so beautiful! I love her every day makeup, in fact it is very similar to my own. Her style is a mix between light grunge and chic, and its my fashion inspiration as well. I forgot to mention, her hair is very famous on tumblr, lovely, long brown locks.

I gather its pretty hard to see her eye makeup in this, however I love her style! Her hair is amazing as well. I can imagine it being very annoying though!! Just a side note- check out those abs! 

Her hair in this is just amazing, on her channel she has alot of tutorials on how you can achieve similar looks to hers. But honestly no matter how hard I try, my hair will never look as good as hers!

So finally a picture of her makeup, probably what you're reading to see. As you can see she wears a strong brow, with smoky eyes, winged liner and full eyelashes, with a cherry lip. It screams summer, and to switch it to fit the fall theme, just add a dark mauve lipstick and you're set.

Moving on to Diana Curmei, from the youtube channel easy neon. Before I start can I just point out how beautiful she is. Her face is so inviting and so perfect. On her channel she gives tutorials on many different makeup looks and they are all very unique and not just the safe smoky eye most youtubers go for.

She is so beautiful, it annoys me to look at her. Her minimal eye makeup in this pair with the orange lip nicely and nothing is incorrect about this picture.  I love her flawless skin finish aswell.

This is the look I hope to attempt NYE. The eyes are completely matte which make them look so perfect and big. I like shimmer however I feel it can be messy if not done correctly. I love her eyeliner. It is gel eye liner she uses and as soon as i get chance im going to buy some as I've been safely sticking to liquid long enough!

This is what I mean by unique. GREEN EYELINER. Who would of thought? Funnily enough I tried this and it did not look the same on me as it did on her but there is always hope. For this look she used this inglot liquid that transforms any eye shadow into eyeliner. Quite cool if you ask me. 

And finally, I guess I should show you my eye makeup. I have about 3 day to day makeup looks. The first is inspired by Vivian Vo Farmer. It incorporates a bit of shimmer, and is a messy smoky eye. The second is A clean matter smoky eye, resembling Diana's and Kylie Jenner's. Finally, my natural look which is inspired by Emily Ratajkowski's makeup in the blurred lines video.

This is my messy smoky eye. I use a dark shimmery brown, a mauve matte colour, and a lights gold for this look.

Thankyou so much for reading, and I hope you check out these youtubers! Let me know post suggestions down below!
