Journaling – three ways

Hello!

Today on my blog, I will be showing you three ways to keep a journal. All of these ways are good and fairly simple and some let you be more creative than others so you can pick what is right for you, because as your journal is about you, you should be able to pick what you want it to be like.

1: Bullet Journal

Bullet journals are amazing for if you are creative or want to start being a more crafty person as they allow you to design it yourself to what you want. Here are my ideas for bullet journal beginners;

 

2: Planner

A planner is great for if you are not quite as arty, but still want to add your own touch to your journal. I’m mine, I write down little quotes and inspirational messages to make me smile when I read them. I also wrote down any important information like dance lessons or exams. I like adding little doodles and stickers to my planner as well. Mine is from Kate Spade and was about £30! 😭;


3: Diary

I didn’t really know what to call this one, so I just called it a diary… I used Louise Pentland aka Sprinkle of Glitter’s 2017 Diary and it is the ‘easiest’ option as all you need to do is write in the information. I use this one as a blog planner and write in ideas for posts and when the posts are up;


Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed my different journals and are inspired to start your own!

Summer Day Out Outfit ☀️

Hello! Today I will be sharing an outfit which I have been loving as it is so simple and looks amazing but is still comfortable and keeps you cool (ish) in warm weather!

Top

The top is a vest style blouse from H&M and it is cream coloured with lacy floral detailing at the top. I can’t remember exactly, but I think it was around £10. 


Shorts

I paired the top with my black shorts from Miss Selfridge which I have done a post on previously; The Perfect Denim Shorts.


Shoes

Finally to complete the outfit, I have these beautiful Aztec style wedges which I got for very cheap in the BHS closing sale last year, so unfortunately you cannot buy these exact ones any more, but I’m sure you can get similar ones!


So that is my summer outfit – I hope you love it as much as me!

The perfect denim shorts

Hello! Today I will be sharing with you my new favourite outfit staple – denim shorts! These ones are beautiful, so let’s take a look!

I recently bought a pair of black denim shorts from Miss Selfridge and I love them! They are comfy, practical and look great all at the same time and the fit is really good.

Black Shorts

They were a good price – only £20 and I loved them so much I had to buy the blue ones as well! 

Blue Shorts

I paired the shorts with; an off the shoulder kind of Bardot blue and white striped frill from top from Zara or a white vest with crochet detailing from Miss Selfridge, a top with a slightly funnel necked red and white striped top also from Zara, a white ribbed rope with blue, black and red stripes from H&M and a blue vest style blouse with white stars on from H&M.

H&M – I couldn’t find the exact tops online because I bought them in store.


Thank you for reading, I hope you love these outfits as much as me!

My Meal Diary! Sunday 28th May

Hello! So, I have decided to share with you every day this week the previous day’s meals. I am on a mini holiday right now, so thought it might be fun to share what I eat each day! I have laid out the week in my sketch pad and will upload the previous day’s food in the form of pictures of my sketch pad. Thank you for reading this so far and I hope you enjoy!

Sunday 28th May

Whilst I was drawing the layout for my diary, my pen slipped and I ended up with a little line coming off of it …. So, I decided to add a little ‘life lesson’ that when life doesn’t go to plan, you can always fix it! Well, it does depend what you have done, but anyway I added these little lines to ALL of the boxes and had each box’s lines going opposite ways! I think it turned out okay in the end.


Thank you for reading, please leave your opinion on this type of post in the comments!

Rose Gold eyeshadow look – Naked 3 review

Hello! Today I will be sharing my thoughts and opinions on the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette and explaining my go to look! The Naked 3 palette is a pink and rose gold based collection of eyeshadows and is my favourite palette at the moment!

http://www.urbandecay.co.uk/en_GB/palettes/naked3/UD409.html
The packaging 

The packaging is this beautiful rose gold textured casing with gold writing on. It is sturdy and durable and I haven’t dropped it (yet!) but I feel if I did, the shadows would be okay!


The eyeshadows 

The actual eyeshadows are in a wide array of colours – as I mentioned before pink and rose gold based. Three of the shadows are matte and the other nine shimmer. It could do with a couple more darker mattes as there is only really one you can use in your crease. The pigment is all round good, some have better colour pay off than others but all of them are beautiful! 


The look

First of all, I took the shade ‘Nooner’ which is a matte cool toned brown and placed that in my crease. This shade is the only one you can really put in your crease, as the other two mattes are paler. ‘Nooner’ has a good colour to it and is easy to blend.


Next, I took ‘Liar’ in the outer part of the lid. This is a slightly paler, shimmer version of ‘Nooner’ but it worked well in the outer lid. The pigmentation was good and it stayed nicely.

Then, I put the shade ‘Limit’ in the inner part of my lid. This is a pale pink matte shade with an okay pigment, but not the strongest colour ever. 


I then put the shade ‘Trick’ onto the center of my kid. ‘Trick’ is my favourite shadow from the whole palette as it is the most beautiful rose gold shimmer. The pigmentation and colour pay off is out of this world (!) and it is so smooth and almost creamy – making it blend beautifully!


Finally, I put ‘Dust’ in my inner corner. This is a pressed glitter and gives an extra sparkle to your eyes! ✨

The swatches/lasting power

I swatched ‘Nooner’, ‘Liar’, ‘Trick’ and ‘Limit’ in the morning, so that is the first photo and then the second is in the evening.


Nooner lasted the best! The other colours have a bit of shimmer left to them but are pretty much gone. Although, they were on my hand, so went through a lot more than my eyelids. I wore this look on my eyes as well and all of the colours are clearly still there, so they last well!

Thank you!
