| Night Out Outfit. OOTN |

Helloo guys. I have just finished a night shift, so I think today is a going to be a lazy pyjama day. Which are the best days! Dont really feel like doing a lot other than blogging. Yay :) 
So on todays post I am going to be talking about my outfit that I wore for a leaving party night out the other day. I hope you enjoy & like how I have put my outfit together. 

This is my outfit all put together. Backgrounds not great sorry. 

The majority of this outfit is from my favorite place to shop which is of course Miss Guided!

  • Bralet - Miss Guided - £14.99
  • Skirt - Miss Guided - £20.00
  • Shoes - Dorthy Perkins - Honestly can not remember 
  • Clutch - Primark - £4.00
The bralet I bought is in a size 8. I love it its so easy to wear. You can wear it in so many different ways. Style it with a nice pair or skinny black trousers & heels or how I have with a midi skirt. Its just a really nice piece of clothing to have if your going somewhere special. The best part about it is that the material is made out of lace. 
It comes with a zip at the back & also adjustable straps which is always good. I love how the zip & the little bits of  the straps are gold. Black and gold go so well together, just makes it that little bit nicer. 

Here's a closer look of what the bralet looks like pretty isn't it?! Love the little floral patterns on it too.

I don't think you can really go wrong with wearing all black. Thought I would play it safe & get the midi skirt in the same colour. I am so glad I found this skirt its such a statement piece. Really like how it is shorter one side & longer the other. Its just not like your regular midi skirts. Adds a bit more of the wow factor to it. It has an elasticated waist as well which I like because sometimes I find it hard for some types of skirts to fit properly.

I thought this outfit would go best with a clutch. Like I said it is from Primark & what a bargin I picked it up for, so cheap but doesn't look to tacky. Again it has gold details on it, so goes perfect with this outfit. It is a zip bag I do prefer them especially if I am going to wear it on a night out. It does have a zip inside it to, where I usually keep my phone & money. The material feels pretty good too. 

Cute gold detailing 

Just to finish off my outfit I added some long blue earrings. It was a choice between a statement necklace or earrings & thought that these went better. The are from Accessorize. 

Really hope you guys enjoyed this post :) speak soon.

| Outfit Of The Day |

Today I have put together my outfit of the day. Its pretty simple but still looks smart. The outfit mainly consists of black & white but has a pop of baby blue. Its a great winter piece to wear whether your just nipping out to the shops or going out for a fancy lunch date. 

Items From:

Coat - Forever 21

Dress - Primark 

Shoes - Boohoo 

Socks - Topshop 

I'm really into dresses or tops with cute little collars on them. I think that's why I love this dress so much & for it to be from Primark is crazyyy. As soon I saw it knew I had to buy it. I also love how they have added cuffs to the sleeves on the dress just to make it even more cute! 
I fell in love with the boots from Boohoo, black and gold go so well together. These boots are super comfy too. They can be styled with pretty much any outfit whether it be a dress or just some jeans. I tend to add my thrilled Topshop socks with these too. 

The little shoulder bag I got given to me so i'm afraid I am not able to tell you where it is from. The detailing on this is perfect. Goes so well with my shoes as it has gold bits on it. Loving the black and gold combo.

Hope you enjoyed my first fashion post. More to come :)

| How I get my lashes looking full & dramatic |

If you want to know how you get from this to this.


P.S please ignore my non existent eye brows :)

Then keep on reading just a few simple steps to make the most of your lashes. I have used the same mascara for years & I have to say that it is the bomb! I think I will always buy this mascara. When I go to pick up another one once I have ran out, I don't even hesitate to look for a different one as I know just how good this one is.  As you can see it makes my eye lashes look fuller & a lot longer giving it that dramatic look we all want whether its going out clubbing or just for everyday wear. This mascara is perfect for both. My eyes are pretty small which I hate but by using this mascara it definitely makes quiet a bit of a difference to the look of the size of my eye. As it does make your lashes look a fair bit longer.
It doesn't feel heavy on the eye & its lasting power is fab, lasts all day & to be honest its that good that by the end of the day I have to really work on trying to remove it. Which doesn't bother me as I love this product so much.

Its pretty straight forward to how I apply this mascara. I don't use any other products on my eye lashes, just the mascara its self. Ill be honest I do tend to use a fair good two or three coats of the stuff, but that's just because I like to build it up & get the most of the volume. Which probably does help make my eye lashes look longer and fuller.

Now's the time to probably tell you what miracle mascara it is that I use. Its the Bourjois Paris volume clubbing mascara. Its very affordable at only £7.99 I get the colour in absolute black. This  mascara is very resistant to rain. I can honestly say when ever I have been out in the rain it hasn't ever come off or even worse ran down my face. Which makes it even more special.

It definitely does as it says on the packaging. Quote:{ dramatic look. Regard intense. Extreme volume } I love the look of the packaging too I think that's probably part the reason why I picked it up in the first place.
The wand that you use the apply the mascara is a big wand. You can get plenty on the wand to cover the majority of your lashes.

Here's what it looks like.

Pretty impressive huh?! :)

I just really think that it really does the job everyone one wants longer looking lashes & I believe this product does just that! & of course its very affordable.

Here's a photo of me wearing the mascara.
