Three M's.

Sunday, 11 October 2015

It's been a little while since i've posted something that didn't have an end goal, and as it's Sunday, i've been doing a little scouring of my archives and re-reading posts from back in 2012 when I was struggling to get through my undergraduate degree. Fast forward three years and i'm back in the same position, but this time i'm in the North of England and pursuing my Masters in Architecture. How time flies! Back then it felt like i would never graduate, so it feels surreal to be edging towards qualifying as an Architect. I feel like an adult at school again, and i'm still struggling to remember anyone's names on my course, but hopefully everything will fall into place by Christmas, and speaking of Christmas, It feels like i'm hurtling through some sort of time machine, and I can't quite believe that it's October already. I've already submitted three pieces of work and i've done one oral presentation (i didn't throw up with fear like i thought i would hurrah!) which went very very well.

GRWM: The Curly Fro' & Lazy Makeup.

Friday, 9 October 2015

I actually summoned up the ovaries to record, and show you all a step by step process of how I generally paint my face if i'm going 'out' out. Pretty simple really. A good concealer, some highlighter and mascara will take you far in life. I'm still finding filming a bit weird, but oddly satisfying. No one tells you have much fun editing is! On that one i actually have another video i'm editing at the moment on LUSH's new 'natural hair' collection, which i'll hopefully have edited and put up by next week. So without being too wordy as the video quite literally speaks for itself, let me know what you think!

Products Used: Rosebud Lip Salve | MAC Orange Colour Corrector | Nars Creamy Radiance Concealer in 'Amande' | MAC Face & Body Foundation in 'C7'  | Sleek Contour Palette 'Medium' | Sleek Blush by Three Palette in 'Lace'. | Oriflame Mascara | Barry M Lip Pencil in 'Cocoa' | Kiko Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in 'Warm Brown' | MUA Matte Lipstick in 'Fawn Fancy'. 


Dark Hues.

Tuesday, 6 October 2015

Time seems to be flying by, and my move to the North feels like it was months ago although i've only been an adopted Liverpudlian for about three weeks now, hence the vague radio silence. I spoke about it on twitter earlier this year when i was stressing over applications and portfolio designing, but I've moved up to Liverpool to do my MArch (Masters in Architecture) and so far so good, deadlines have been met enthusiastically on my part, and all the lecturers, professors and tutors seem super cool and knowledgeable which is alway good. 
These photos are actually from one of my last few days in London with my good friend Marcos. And I have yet to stop wearing this H&M shift dress (which i unfortunately can't find the link for as it's pretty old boo!), i've worn it's so much that it's starting to fade a little, but it's so perfectly autumnal and the dark hues remind me of Halloween, Fires, Pumpkin Spice Latte's and comforting bowls of soup. I have wholeheartedly entered A/W guys.

Camel On Camel

Sunday, 27 September 2015

I am struggling to fulfil my true Autumn/Winter-Layering-Chic look because of this flippity-floppety British weather, and for once I am looking to the heavens for it to become a little chillier so i can bring my Pinterest A/W board to life! Luckily for me, the first day of London Fashion Week proved to be very wet and pretty windy so my cosy camel get up served me well on both counts of practicality and style, which was wonderful as i had been considering wearing block heels with a dress which would have been a big ol' heaping of NO BUENO! Because LFW had closed it's doors on Somerset house and moved to Brewer street. The cobbles of Somerset house were nothing compared to the vehicular and human traffic jam that was Brewer Street, i think i narrowly avoided getting hit by cars about three times, so simple comfort was a good choice. 

On Blackheath

Monday, 21 September 2015

At the ripe old age of 24, i finally went to my first ever festival, who have thought it? Although if festivals with gourmet Mac n' Cheese and jugs of Pimms are anything to go by, then On Blackheath is definitely the festival for me. This was definitely not the muddy affair i had associated festivals with, but rather a very enjoyable and relaxed day, but not quite knowing what to expect, i Pinterested 'Festival Fashion' in a desperate bid to find what on earth i would wear as On Blackheath is a day festival, so it would have to be comfortable enough for me to be able to trek all the way back to Zone 6 in. You can't go wrong with a leather jacket, because they go with practically everything and they're super cosy, but i wanted to feel more…. Festival-y, like the free spirited-indie-boho girls you see on tumblr. Unfortunately i can't quite pull that look off, so in true Sade fashion i kept it practical with my trusty dusty Dr Martens, Some comfy jeans, a fringed kimono and a black tee. And naturally i had to top off the look with some glitter face paint because Kelis was playing and i wanted to do her proud haha!
