Northern Exposure OOTD – Thursday

Sorry for the lack of post yesterday, but hopefully today’s outfit post will make up for it. 🙂 I went out to town today just to run some errands and it take a few things back to Primark that I decided against keeping and as it’s still pretty cold I thought best to layer up.

My jumper is a recent purchase from New Look and I must admit isn’t something I would normally have picked up, but it caught my eye in the shop and when I tried it on in the fitting room I just fell in love with it. It’s really and easy to wear a vest top underneath for the current colder weather, but it’ll be great for spring too because it’s not too thick. You can find it online here.I’ve paired it with a pair of light wash ‘boyfriend’ cut denim shorts from H&M. I seem to be living in shorts with tights at the moment!

For jewellery I’ve just combined some random bracelets from my collection, the two at the front of my wrist I picked up on holiday in Majorca (love the jewellery out there!) and I think the other two were from H&M a long time ago. I just love a mis-match of bracelets for a casual look.

My ring is another recent purchase, and if I do say so myself, a bargain at £1.50 from Topshop. I rummaged about a bit for my size but so glad I managed to find one. I don’t usually wear gold or gold effect jewellery but this really stood out to me.

For shoes I’ve just gone for the Navy pair of slip-on’s I got from Primark last week, again another bargain at £3 and they are soooo comfortable!

And to finish off and to keep cosy, I popped on my Navy quilted jacket again from New Look which is such a flattering fit, and currently using to death my Tan satchel bag I bought from Next about 2 years ago.

Face & Outfit of the Day – Monday

I’m a day late with this post but I didn’t have a chance to post yesterday after travelling back from my parents in the afternoon and then had to do the exciting food shop last night when I got home.  But anyway, this is the first time I’ve done a Face of the Day but I’m trying to carry on with the theme of daily posts just while I have time off work.

So here’s a lowdown of the products I used for my FOTD

  • Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum – Light Vanilla (51)
  • Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil – Hazel (002)
  • MUA Heaven & Earth Palette (1, Hightlight, 2. Lid 3. Crease)
  • Topshop Kohl Pencil – Saddle
  • Max Factor False Lash Effect Fusion – Black/Brown
  • MUA Powder Blusher – Shade 4
  • Original Carmex on my lips

 

And here is the result…

I really like this look because it really brightens my face and my eyes without going too over the top. I love the blush as it gives me a nice natural glow and the gold tones of the eye shadow really bring out the grey/blue shades in my eyes.
I’m really loving the Bourjois healthy mix serum, which I did a review of here and love the dewy look it brings to my skin and the colour match is just perfect 🙂

And for my outfit of the day, I wore a Navy lace detail top from Primark (£6) with a navy vest top underneath. With my favourite Skinny Jeans in the whole world from Next (£20) and a pair of grey daps from Primark (£3)
