To Majorca!...

I'm going to Majorca! I've actually posted this on queue so really I'm on my way to Majorca right now. I haven't been posting anything lately because I have just had so much to do but now I don't have to do anything so I'll be posting again. I won't be posting for a week now though because I'll be on holiday - obviously.

Wednesday Friday Addams...

"Why are you dressed like somebody died?"
"Wait."

It was my friends birthday ages ago but I started writing this post then and just never got round to posting it. Anyway, she decided to have a fancy dress party which everyone enjoys. When I saw this dress on boohoo.com for £15 I decided I had to go as Wednesday Addams! I absolutely love The Addams Family Values (the second Addams Family film) because of the scenes with Wednesday and Pugsley in Camp and the things she says really make me laugh. I also wanted to go as Wednesday because I thought I could wear this dress more than just for fancy dress - unlike a whoopee cushion costume.
Anyway, to complete my super cute and easy Wednesday costume I put on some frilly socks, black vans, a ton of black eye shadow, dark red lipstick, big earrings and of course I put my hair into plaits.



     

I wish I'd had the high heels in the picture when I went to the party because I am in complete and utter love with them. They're perfect. Plus they were the last pair in Office so were only a tenner!
I absolutely loved the party and my costume (even though quite a few people thought I was the girl from orphan)! My outfit was quick, cheap and comfortable. It was a great night and everyone looked amazing.

Fashion By Mayhem...

Okay, so I know I'm late on this and I haven't posted anything in agesssss but that's because I have been extremely busy doing work and lots of procrastination (more procrastination than work but hey). Anyway, if you haven't heard about this girl then you should really see this!
Mayhem is a four year old girl who's mum posts pictures of her on her instagram and blog wearing the cutest little dresses - made from paper. She is the absolute cutest thing ever and her and her mum make dresses and outfits completely from paper and other crafty things. The outfits have been everything from catwalk to celebrity inspired.





I want the frozen inspired hat so much!
Is this not the greatest thing ever? To see more of their super cute designs you can go to fashionbymayhem.com or you can go to their instagram! It's all just so sweet I can't get over it!
Maybe I'll make one myself?

How I Wash My Make Up Brushes...

As much as I like to kid myself, I am not a neat person. I just can't get organised no matter how much I try and my room is a complete mess 99% of the time. But, there are some things that I actually like cleaning or sorting out. One of these is washing my make up brushes. I really don't know why but it is so satisfying seeing them all clean and new looking afterwards. It makes me happy! (I realise this sounds extremely sad.).
So anyway, I just thought I'd share with you how I clean them because I don't really use any special make up cleany products or anything.


1. First get a towel to put the brushes on and roll one end up a little but. This is so that when you put the brushes down the water doesn't run up the handle bit of the brush. 
2. You need some baby shampoo and a running tap - that's it! Run the warm tap a little bit, but apparently you don't want the water too warm because it melts the glue or something? I don't know if it's true but just to be safe! 
3. Wet each brush a little bit and rub it on your hand as if you were rubbing make up on it.
4. Then put a tiny bit of baby shampoo in the middle of your hand and rub it with the brush again. Just keep doing this until you think that the brush is clean and rinse all the shampoo out. Make sure that all the shampoo is out! 
5. Once all the shampoo is out, squeeze the water out of the brush from the top down. Kind of like your smoothing it out.
6. Lay the clean brushes back on the towel like before so that the water doesn't get into the handle and leave them to dry!

Try not to run the tap for too long though! We need to try and save our planet so turn the tap off whenever you can!

So Much To Do!...

Okay, so this is just a quick, small post to tell you that I am still here and still really want to be posting things! But I have a ton of work and stuff and things that I need to do that I have been putting off till last minute... Like a billion pieces of art work that really need doing. So here's some pictures I've taken when I was getting distracted. Hopefully I'll be posting something else soon!

Pretty Pastels

I've never really liked pastel colours. They're too light and get dirty too easily. But for some reason I've started to really love them recently. I really like the pastel nail colours, especially since it's coming up to spring (well not really, but I can hope...). It might have something to do with the adorable fujifilm instax mini 8 and all the really cute colours that it has come out in. It's definitely on my wish list! SO anyway, I just made a quick thing on polyvore of some cute pastels I've seen. (I wasn't actually meant to publish it in here but oh well it happened without me telling it to)

Elsa Inspired

I love Disney. I don't understand how someone can't love Disney! If you haven't seen the latest Disney Princess film you should definitely watch it because it is pretty perfect. There was a lot about it on the internet, a lot of negative comments, but honestly it's amazing.
Because I love the film so much, and all the songs in it, I decided to make a cute little get the look type thing for Elsa and Anna!

Again, if you haven't seen it, you should definitely watch it. It's a really cute story.

Audrey Hepburn Inspired


Audrey Hepburn Inspired
I absolutely love old films. Mainly 80's teen films but I really love Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's as well because she just looks so glamorous in every scene! She always looked so "elegant". My favourite is the dress she is wearing above, second from the right. Her look is so simple but looks so glamorous at the same time. I love the fitted black dress and it's a look that can absolutely never go out of fashion! It also looks good on literally everyone and anyone. I mean, it's slimming, goes with anything and will never go out of fashion. When in doubt, wear black.


Having said that, I loved this scene too and what she was wearing...

The Body Shop Seaweed Clarifying Toner...

Oh my goshhhhhhhhhh. One of my New Year Resolutions was to look after my skin better.
I decided that for the first time ever I need to get some good stuff for my face and start having a proper routine (which never usually happens but oh well). I bought this teenie tiny toner from The Body Shop that I am in love with! I've never been one of those people with the face wash the cleanser the toner the moisturiser the day cream and night cream routine thing. But I actually really like this toner and think that it is helping my skin loaaaddsss! And I have actually been remembering to put it on - which is really weird for me!


I've been putting it on every night with a cotton pad thingy (what are they called?) and then putting moisturiser on. It's so good I wish I'd bought the big bottle!
