The patterned bomber jacket

Heyyy, so I got this bomber jacket from Zara and I'm kinda in love with it so I thought I'd do a little post on how I styled it.
When the bomber jacket trend first came out I was like "nah, not for me" as I thought I can't pull that of. I went shopping looking for other things but not a bomber and then I saw this in Zara, I tried it on and thought actually I think I'm gonna give in and accept that these jackets are actually pretty cool, so I bought it!
Since buying I have worn it constantly, it goes with more than you would expect due to its bright pattern and I think it just adds a bit of something something to your outfit.
Sooo, this is how I styled it, Happy reading !!

I hope you liked this post as it was fun for me to experiment with the camera on taking outfit pictures and finding a nice background! I was originally going to take the pictures outside but then I live in England so it rained and actually I kinda like the background of this? I'm thinking of doing more outfit posts as .. I just wanna .. !!

Charlotte Tilbury - Matte Revolution - Glastonberry

I wrote this post Autumn/ Winter 2015 but forgot about it so when i talk about Autumn just ignore me! (I'm lazy)!
Heavenly, is one of many words I can think of to describe just the packaging of this lipstick. I bought this lipstick one autumn night when I was feeling spendy and after ordering I had a realisation that I just spent 20 something pounds on a lipstick but what can you do when internet shopping is made so easy and there are products that have packaging which makes you want to drool! I have really only mentioned the packaging so far which may be important but its not actually going to go on my lips so therefore I should probably start reviewing the actual stuff inside that "heavenly, drool worthy" shell. I decided to choose the colour glastonberry; partly because of Zoella and her raves about this particular shade, I also wanted to try out something from Charlotte Tilbury and I wanted to get into those autumn vibes. The shade is different from my other lip products and a little bit out of my nude comfort zone which I think is one of the reasons I like it and also a excuse I can use to justify the purchase. I also think it is one of the best of the products which are this shade (if that makes sense..). The formula is really smooth and velvety but then as the name suggests it is a matte finish which I personally like best. A lip liner is helpful but not necessary, I bought a lip liner from NYX cosmetics but I usually can't be bothered to use it and I'm not sure if it really makes a difference which is why I wasn't sure about bothering to mention it but I'd like to hear your opinions if you have any on it and if you know of any good lip liners.

sorry about the bad quality!
In brief I really like this product and if you are looking to splurge on a Autumn/Winter lippy then this is a great buy and for the last time the packaging is "GOALS"!

This picture makes me miss my ombre hair so much !!

Golden graham chocolate bars recipe

This is a really easy recipe and you can adapt it to what you have in your cupboards. I used golden grahams which just happened to be the cereal in my cupboard so you could use whatever you want.

Step 1: Crush the golden grahams by putting them in a plastic food bag and crushing them with a rolling pin. Crush them into pieces which are around quarters of the one piece of the cereal.

Step 2: Melt the chocolate and then mix with the golden grahams until fully covered.

Step 3: Place in the tin and squash down to make it even and cover with the the topping then place in the fridge covered with clingfilm.

Step 4: Melt the chocolate then add to the cream and mix thoroughly until it is all mixed together.

Step 5: Place the chocolate cream onto the base and add any other toppings then place back into the fridge to set.

Step 6: Once set cut into squares and eat!
Keep refrigerated.

The Lazy people's skincare routine

I'm not going to lie to you and tell you that every night and morning I do a full skincare routine because the truth is I don't and the reason is because I'm lazy, but it's a work in progress and I am trying to get better. So I am going to do a lazy skincare routine for all you out there who plan to be all fancy with all those creams but just end up .... well not!

Firstly, I use the Simple cleansing cream with a cotton pad, I love this stuff; it is relatively cheap, gets makeup off super easily, moisturises skin, great for all types of skin.
After this I am basically done!
I may put some moisturiser on, but lets be real here, we call ourselves lazy for a reason!

Thats all I have to say about this so this post is super short. (sorry if you like long posts!!)
