MEEEEEEEEEEEEEE :( So I haven't blogged in absolutely forever! The last 6 months have been mayhem! I have now graduated from university and what a relief that is. It has been so nice not having the stress of deadlines over summer but now it has started to sink in that I wont be going back which does make me so so sad. I miss living the student life and getting drunk every other night of the week and living in my little cute student house and not having my parents breathing down my neck all the time. But that just makes me more determined to start the rest of my life, get an amazing job and save up for my own place. Fingers crossed this will happen soon, my life currently revolves around applying for jobs and there is no worse feeling that rejection. I'm getting by with working at New Look which I do enjoy but I want to start my professional career and New Look isn't a part of that plan. So theres a little update of why I have been the worst blogger, but I hope that from now on I will find the time to pay attention to my blog! xx

I never buy benefit make up, simply because I am usually poor and can't afford it :'( But my lovely mum in law bought me the Benefit - away we glow gift set for Christmas and I am SO impressed!
Within a couple of days of using the product I was already panicking about when they run out because they make my skin look so radiant and glowing (just what it says on the tin.) So I have made a promise to myself that I will spend a little more on make up because there is no way I can go without any of the products in this set!
It's such a handy little kit and every product works to really lighten and brighten up your face subtly.
I never wear eye shadow ever but the palette in this kit is amazing and I have been experimenting, for once, with my eye make-up and with the high beam to try a different direction for my make-up style.
Over the Last month I have got my hands on a few amazing newbies! Firstly I FINALLY became an owner of some heated rollers. They are Babyliss Pro Stylist heated rollers and they are AMAZING! Here is a photo after I used them... They work so well and make my hair so big and bouncy and very Cheryl like (yay) I would recommend them to anybody. My mum has shorter hair which is quite thin and they even worked great on her too and made her hair look so much thicker. Definitely a must have for anyone looking for big bouncy curls.
Second favourite newbie of the last month would be my Stylist Pick killer booties (which I am probably going to break my neck in.) But I have wanted some heeled boots for ages and these were reduced from £50 to £25 AMAZING! They are beautiful and will look fab for the internships I have coming up over the year and for the (fingers crossed) interviews I am hoping to get in a few months time. No pain no gain...
Lastly my cute new bowler hat is possibly my favourite thing ever! I love my trilby but it's too big for my head and always blows away. This style of hat fits perfectly and stays firmly put, so no embarrassing moment running down the street chasing my hat (cringe) It was £25 from Topshop. I think it finishes an outfit so well. Here I teamed it with my leather skater skirt (New Look) and cream jumper (River Island)
with my new jacket from Missguided! I have wanted it FOREVER and my amazing boyfriend got it me for Christmas. I have probably worn it every day since! I love the similar style ones with leather sleeves that have become very popular but the gold sequin sleeves are much more me! Its so edgy but glitzy and feminine at the same time which is what Missguided are very good for and they are really affordable for poor students like me! Definitely going to be one of my favourite places to shop for 2013!
