What I wore to an interview

I wore:
2-in-1 cardigan & shirt, Wallis
Trousers, Primark
Shoes, New Look


Max Factor second skin foundation
Garnier under-eye roll on
Rimmel match perfection concealer
Rimmel match perfection powder
17 eyebrow shaper
Maybelline falsies mascara
Benefit high beam
Revlon lip butter in tutti fruitti

So I mentioned I had a job interview recently, and this is what I wore. The brief was casual formal. I liked this outfit because I felt really comfortable in it. The 2-in-1 top was a present from my boyfriend nearly four years ago. It's stayed in such good condition as I save it for formal occassions. The make-up is pretty much my everyday go-to look. Hope this helped someone, as dressing for interviews can be a bit tough. I got the job so I must have been doing something right!

What would you wear to an interview? What do you think of this outfit?

My Best Friend's 21st Birthday and What I Wore

It was my best friend Laura's 21st birthday recently. We've been best friends since we were 8 years old! We went out for drinks and clubbing on one evening to celebrate.

I wore:

Dress (with belt), Primark
Shoes, New Look
Necklace, Primark

So that's me, Laura and our boyfriends. The dress I wore was an absolute bargain, only £7 in the sale! I don't think it even looks like it's from primark. I love it! Pink is one of my favourite colours but I don't really own any pink clothes, so this made a nice change. And I wore my favourite navy blue heels which I've had for about two years. This did mean I was about 3 inches taller than my boyfriend, but oh well!

Two days later I went to Go Ape with Laura and her family and some of our closest friends. I had no idea what to expect as I'd never been before. I'm generally not scared of much, I go on all the scary rides at theme parks and have never been scared of heights. But I definitely panicked at Go Ape! It was so scary and high up. And even though I was in a harness I was scared of falling. But I kept going and I completed the whole course, so I'm very pleased with myself!

You may also be able to see that I dyed my hair. Well, my boyfriend did. I really like the colour, although it's starting to fade already! Boo!

Have any of you been to Go Ape?

Dress, New Look

So I graduated last month. I got a 2.1 in Criminal Justice and Criminology! Since then I've moved back home with my parents and I've been applying for lots of jobs. This paid off yesterday when I got offered a job as an admin assistant at Asda, so I'm very happy! I have my induction tomorrow :)

Now that I'm settled here, I'm definitely going to get back into blogging! Coming up are some posts on what I wore to job interviews, and what I wore to my best friend's 21st birthday. I've also dyed my hair since these pictures and had a haircut, so you'll be seeing that soon too.

OOTD: Blue skulls

I'm wearing:

Top, New Look
Cardigan, Next
Jeans, River Island
Shoes, Office
Necklace, Topshop
Ring, Topshop

I recently moved back to my parents house, since I finished university last month (I got a 2.1 by the way!). So it may take a while for me to find a good place to take photo's. Seeing as my boyfriend is living here over summer too, I'll hopefully get him to take photo's like he usually does!

This was just a really casual outfit to do some errands in town. The weather's been pretty rubbish lately, lots of rain, so I've taken to wearing black jeans a lot and comfy shoes. At the moment I'm just trying to enjoy some free time, whilst looking for a job too!

Mini haul: Pretty pastels

Even though the weather in England has been pretty rubbish lately, I've decided that I won't let it affect me wearing Spring clothes. I did a little haul on last night because they currently have 20% off for students! I generally wear a lot of darker colours; black, grey and burgundy in particular. But this time I decided to buy some lovely pastels.

Here's what I bought, I can't wait for them to arrive!

High waist shorts (link)
Burn out tee (link)

What do you think of the clothes I bought? Have you took advantage of the 20 per cent off?

Garnier Under-Eye Roll-On
Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer
Max Factor Creme Puff Face Powder
Bourjois Blush (Rose D'or)
Sleek Storm Eyeshadow Palette
Maybelline Colossal Volum' Express Mascara

I'm wearing:

Finished uni now for four weeks, but it's definitely not gonna feel like a holiday. Got so much dissertation work, essay work and revision to do. I'll be going back home in a few days to spend some time with my family so that'll be nice. It's a shame I won't be back for Mother's Day though!

Don't know if you'll be able to tell in these pictures but I dyed my hair recently (well my boyfriend did). It's a bit darker than this in real life, I like it!

Recent Purchases: Ark, Primark, Boots and more..

Hi! I've been on two shopping trips lately and here's what I managed to pick up. I'm really pleased with my purchases so thought I'd show you. All of the items are pretty cheap too :)

Playsuit (£5) and PJs (£6), Primark

Two bargains here. The first playsuit will be perfect for wearing now with tights and in the summer without. It's an easy piece to just throw on. The Pj playsuit is so comfy and will be great to wear in the warm summer months.

Cardigan (£24.99) and Vest (£14.99), Ark

I've been looking for a cardigan like this for ages. It's gonna be great for the next few months seeing as it's getting too warm to wear a coat now, and it'll be perfect again come Autumn. It's the perfect fit and not too thick or thin. I also love the vest. I've been wearing a similar grey one with a skull on a lot, so I know I'll get a lot of use out of this one.

Tops (£4 and £8), Primark

I think both of these tops will be great with high waisted jeans or shorts for the Spring.

Top (£6) and Dress (£6), Primark

The dress is such a bargain, it's just a light cotton material and will be great with leggings. Can't wait to wear it. The top again is just an easy piece to throw on!

Shorts (£10), Primark

I always tend to buy too many tops and not much else, so I was determined to find a skirt or shorts today, and I found these shorts, which I think are going to be wearable all year round.

Clutch Bag (£7.99), New Look

I don't even own a clutch bag so I thought it was about time I got one. I think this will go with pretty much every evening outfit.

Rings (£2.99), H&M

I had the silver version of these rings but they've gone quite rusty now. But they're so cheap and I thought the gold ones would be slower to rust!

Max Factor Foundation (£12.99) and Powder (£5.99)

I've been finding my rimmel foundation too thick. I wanted something with lighter coverage for the Spring/Summer. I've purchased this foundation a few times before and loved it, but haven't used it in a year or two, mainly because it's a bit pricey, but I thought I'd get it again! Also needed a new powder.

Max Factor free gift

For spending over £15 on max factor, I got a free gift, which is great! It includes four minatures - two nail polishes, an eyeliner and a mascara - as well as a make-up bag. So I'm happy with that!

Let me know if you like any of my purchases :)

OOTD: Leopard Print and Pops of Colour

I'm wearing:

H&M Top
River Island Jeggings
Primark Belt
New Look Necklace
New Look Shoes

Just another uni outfit. I'm trying to inject more colour into my outfits seeing as it's nearly Spring! I spent the afternoon in town and bought a few nice things, I think I'll do a haul post next! My favourite purchases were a gorgeous mint coloured blouse from H&M and hairdye :)
