everyday make-up

I've been meaning to pop an updated 'everyday make-up' post up for ages now, but given that I'm always approaching a uni hand-in or moving house at the moment it's been impossible. After settling for two weeks (or so, before moving again) I finally found the time to photograph it. 
I really wanted to have a video to accompany it, but it wasn't do-able so that's next on my to-do list so keep an eye on my YouTube channel where I'll obviously show how I apply it all/what order - but for now, here are the products!

Also, a side note: you can now 'shop' my Instagram/Snapchat/posts etc on this page, or via the 'Shop' link at the top of the page. I'll do my best to link everything you might see there, or alternatives if not, so if for some reason you're wondering where I got something - there might be your best bet!

So, one thing I never thought I'd be showcasing on here was a midi skirt. They've never been for me, and well.. they really don't suit me all that great. However, whilst fishing around in the Whistles sample sale a few weeks ago, I found this gem thrown over a rail and barely looked at it before running to the till on the back wall.

A couple of weeks later featuring a few failed attempts to brave a longer length, and here we are. I wore this outfit ironically to the Whistles AW16 press day with Hannah, and aside from having to throw my legs around for the pictures to avoid looking like a librarian - I think it looks ok.

What do you reckon? And how great is Whistles at the moment? I really want everything - I've got a post coming up on their press day so keep your eyes peeled!

P.S. I'm currently undergoing house move number 1 of 2 (moving again in two weeks!) as well as under a tonne of pressure at uni so I know no one really cares, but sorry for my sporadic posting.

You heard me right, I found dead ringers for the vintage 501's everyone's been going mad over. Now I don't know about you, but I'm really not one for charity shop-shopping, nor am I partial to vintage rummaging. Call me lazy, it's just not me - so when it came to needing a pair of these Levi's I was faced with paying over the odds for them in Urban Outfitters, or rummaging in my local thrift shop. Neither appealed, so of course I had a quick flick through ASOS' new in section and ta-da! Luckily I had a voucher left too, so they were even more enticing.

They're equally as unflattering, make you look like you've got a mens crotch and most of all - they're a super straight leg. The perfect 501 dupe recipe.

I also filmed a little OOTD to pair with the post, although you'll have to forgive me (or James) for the shaky filming and crumby editing.



So what do you reckon, are they close enough?

what's in my handbag/review: small chloe faye

small chloe faye in black

Being the bag of the season, and with the fact I (being one of many) happen to own it, I've had a million questions on what I can fit inside my Faye and how big it is etc so I thought the easiest way to get that across would be to pull it all together in a video, given that's something I apparently do now. 

I'm planning on buying either an A.P.C half moon bag or the Mansur Gabriel bucket bag soon, obviously as well as my new Céline Trio so hopefully this can become a bit of a thing and someone might find it useful!
In the meantime, you can watch the video below!

new in: céline trio

Céline Trio Céline Trio Céline Trio Céline Trio Céline Trio Céline Trio

Ooh, I did it again. After lusting for little Céline friend for quite a while, I finally decided I'd probably earned it so I ventured down to Mount St and picked up the large Trio in black.
I was really split between this and the Chloé Faye a few months ago, and decided that seeing as the Faye was a bit more 'seasonal' I'd go for that and then buy the Céline when I'd saved up enough again. I had no idea there would only been a few months between both purchases, but it comes in perfect time as I've really battered my Chloé and she's definitely in need of a rest!

I had originally gone in with the intention of buying the smaller sized Trio, but given that there's only £90 between the two sizes and the larger of the two looked so much better on it seemed the obvious choice. I've never been one for blowing thousands on clothes/shoes/coats etc as I really do wear and sell things quicker than you can imagine, but I see a bag as a real investment buy. Shoes are coming next, seeing as I'm starting to value things more and trade up buying more of a low quality with less of great quality (Acne Jensens, I'm looking at ya).

I see the Trio as a 'forever' bag, and it's one of the first things I've bought with money I've earned rather than saved from birthdays etc, so it really is a bit of an achievement! I've already set my sights on the vertical Cabas for my next big purchase - albeit in a while though as James and I decided to go back to America the day after I bought it... oops!
