I have been sat watching Lauren Conrads crafty creations videos for hours! They are so cute and really helpful, especially if you're a student like me slightly on the poor side! Take a look at them and be amazed!
Happy (mid) November everyone! I have to apologise again, I seem to have slipped into my full time job mode again and haven't had the time to squeeze in blogging. I struggle sometimes to summon up the confidence to post, mainly because I'm in love with bloggers like Sophia Rosemary and Megan Ellaby who are two of the BEST bloggers I have come across in a long time. Honestly check them out.
But now I have just hit my 26th Birthday (Woo I managed to stay alive) and I just spent the weekend with some of my friends from school I thought I would look back over the top 26 things that I know now I'm 26. I'm talking more life, style and beauty rather than solid facts.
1. Age doesn't matter anymore. In our parents generation people met and fell in love when they were 16. Everyone was pregnant and ready to be 'families' at 26. But now so many avenues are open for you to start living your settled down life at any age, that age really is becoming just a number.
"Homeboy wore combat boots to the beach" might be one of the most memorable from every 20 something year old girls teenage life. We all fancied Justin Bobby and we all secretly wanted to be Audrina riding on the back of his motorbike with our own flowery helmet...or was that just me?
Either way time has past since then and its becoming clear that it really doesn't matter that JB wore his trusty combat boots to the beach...why you ask? Well I am an avid believer in ugly clothes.
Yes. The uglier the better. I have one of those wardrobes where people will text me saying "Oh my god I've found a top you would love" and it will most likely consist of one or more of my 5 must haves:
3. High neck
4. Leopard Print
5. And any form of short skirt.
Even one of my friends Dads has turned round to her before now and said "That's a very Lucy dress" What can I say. Ugly clothes are the best. So quite frankly if JB wanted to rock his grub…
Now it's not just clothes that can be couture. Because of course to go with couture clothing you need couture make up right? I mean you would never see Lady GaGa in her wacky couture gowns with a simple natural make up look would you? So during fashion week 2011 some of the most amazing make up looks were gracing the catwalks. Dior
Chanel Chanels new lace veils and midnight blue nail varnish. Now I think that the one person who could rely on natural make up with their designs is Valentino. With stunning designs the need for vibrant and over powering make up is not needed. Instead a more bold natural look is used to emphasise big and beautiful eyes.
I think that this is one of my favourite make up looks to grace the catwalks as, although the make up is still visible, it emphasises the true beauty of not just the models but also the clothes. xoxo
