Outfit Post- festival look

Hiya bloggers! 

So I thought it was time for me to do another outfit post as I haven't done one in a while. 

Below is my outfit for my Summer Ball at Roehampton University. It was my last ball as a student unfortunately :( The ball consists of a day and evening, in which the day is a lot more casual and almost like a festival and then in the evening we swap out festival gear for our glad-rags! 

I am wearing...

Playsuit- Urban Outfitters £38 (new to this season) find it here:

Hoodie- American Apparel £50 (one of the standard hoodies they do) find it here: 

Leather Jacket: H&M £30 (few seasons ago) find a similar one here:

Black Boots: Dr Martens, £100 find it here:

Bag: eBAY, £9.99 find one similar here:

Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters £16 (new to this season) find it here:

I love this outfit, the playsuit is great for dancing around as you haven't got to have a sudden panic if the wind picks up (we don't wanna loose our dignity do we now!) The leather jacket adds an edgy/grungy element to the outfit; My leather jacket is probably in my top 5 favourite pieces of clothing I own. The boots again add to grunginess of the outfit while still keeping my feet dry. Then lastly the sunglasses and handbag add a hint of glamour and class to the outfit.

Let me know what you think of it or any changes/elements you would add? I was thinking maybe a hat?

Peace and Love

Collection Does it all Mascara

This is just a quick post on my recent purchase of Collection Does it All mascara.

As I have mentioned in a previous post, I am off travelling soon and therefore wanted to buy some cheaper makeup products, incase I loose anything etc. 

I normally wear No.7 Expectional Definition; Black £13.50 Or Benefit BAD gal lash; Black £16.00. Therefore I wanted to get a good mascara that was under £10.

So I popped into Boots (I love collecting points in Boots and always treat myself to something a little expensive when I have enough points) and had a scan of the Maybelline section and then moved onto the Collections section where I spotted the Does it all Mascara. Collections states that this mascara has a five way formula; curling, volumizing, lengthening, long-wearing and conditioning. I really like the brush also as it is similar to the No.7 mascara and allows you to apply mascara evenly across your eye lashes aswell as giving them a great length. 

The only issue I have with the Collection mascara is that it is hard to get off with just my normal make up remover with is a little annoying as I don't want to take a load of facial products with me.

So bloggers if you're looking for a cheaper make up product then check out this Collection mascara! 

Peace and Love

'Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara'

Hey bloggers! So guess what! I've found a dupe for the Benefit 'gimme BROW' which is 'Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara' - £4.99. Although it's definitely not as good quality as 'gimme brow' but it's the closest product that is out there on the beauty market at the moment.
Maybelline Brow Drama comes it 3 colours, deep blond, medium brown and  dark brown. I have dark features so I chose the dark brown. Like the Benefit gimme BROWS, this product has a small mascara style brush on the end of it which allows you to brush the product through your brows. Unfortunately I think that the brush is a little to big at the end and therefore can make precision a little difficult and the gel does feel a little heavier on my brows than the 'gimme BROW' gel. However for £4.99 rather than £17.50 all in all it does the job and is the ideal product for me to take travelling with me! 

(Please excuse the state of my brows at the moment, but hopefully from the picture you can tell that my right brow is fuller looking and darker however still looking natural) 

So if your looking for a cheaper alternative to the Benefit gimme BROWS then check out this Maybelline product! 

Peace and Love
