A lot has happened…

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_fa0

So I haven’t written a blog post in a LONG time. I’m not going to lie, I kind of fell out of love with blogging for a while. However, its been a good few months, a lot has happened, including some big changes. For one, if you don’t subscribe to my YouTube channel, go do it now (please). If you are already subscribed then you may know that come July I am emigrating to Australia. You know those big changes I was talking about? Yeah, its pretty huge.

I also finished University a few weeks ago, and I feel like I know have the time to blog without feeling guilty about not doing my essays and revision.

So, heres to the future of Why Not Blog, and moving to the other side of the world. I am so darn excited.

 

March Favourites

Is it the end of March already?! I know its just a cliche thing to say but I honestly can’t believe how fast this year is going.

For todays blog post I thought I would share with you my monthly favourites, covering beauty, food and random ones! So lets jump straight into it…

I’m going to start off with a bit of a tech fave. My MacBook AirI got this for my birthday, and I have never owned an apple laptop before, but i’m in love with it. I also got a marble hard case for it which looks gorgeous, and as I am a little obsessed with marble it makes me love it even more.

For the whole of March I have been living in my Topshop High Waisted Joni JeansThese are such a staple for me, and so comfy! I pretty much only wear high waisted jeans, and I think I may have to buy another pair purely because I wear these ones so much. While on the topic of clothing, I have also been obsessed with my Missguided Camel Biker Coat. I have wanted a camel coat for a few years now, and finally went and purchased one. This one is a thick material and so well made for the price. What I love is that its not too warm to wear in summer evenings, but warm enough to wear in winter. Being a biker style is right up my street, as I love the whole look of it. On a side note, the length is perfect as-well, and very flattering.

Moving on to haircare, this month in general, I have been loving Bumble and Bumble products. I was given a Boots gift voucher for my birthday, and went into Boots to have a little nosey. I was intending to buy one of the BB Blow Dry Cremes, as I had seen them in a video from Hey Claire. I was helped by a lovely lady who recommended one for my particular hair, and then gave me loads of really good sized samples. I left Boots with the samples and have been hooked on them ever since, and will 100% be purchasing the full sizes when I run out.  In particular I have been loving the BB Repair Blow Dry for when I am using a hair dryer and styling my hair and the BB Don’t Blow  It for when I’m letting my hair dry naturally. The invisible oil range Shampoo and Conditioner along with the Invisible Oil itself.

My favourites in makeup for this month are the Becca Champagne Pop Highlighter. I wasn’t sure this would look that great without a tan, but even on pale skin it looks gorgeous. I have also been loving it as an inner corner highlight, and sometimes even as an eyeshadow. Secondly, I have been loving my MAC Palette again. I don’t have that many shades, and since I purchased my new Stila one, haven’t been using it that much until the last few weeks when I have been using it everyday. In particular I love the shades Antiqued, Cranberry and Texture.

For random favourites, I have to mention the BBC 3 programme Thirteen. It finished on Sunday, and I am so sad about it. There are only 5 episodes but it is a must watch! Being Easter, I obviously couldn’t not give a chocolate favourite, and it has to be Mini Eggs. I love them. I always say ”I’ll just have a 2 or 3”, and then its 3 bags later and i’m heading to the shop for more (eek). I also baked some blondies for easter and oh boy were they good (let me know if you would like a recipe).

Basics and Style Staples, Part 2

Hello again!

Carrying on from my last post, I am going to show you how I would pair some of the pieces I talked about in my Basics and Style Staples, Part 1. I thought I would try and do some outfits for different occasions, and try and use at least one of each staple. I hope you enjoy this post!

Basics and Style Staples, Part 1

I recently wrote in a previous blog post that basics are a major part of my style at the moment, and I mentioned a few key pieces everyone should have in their wardrobe. So on that note, I thought I would write a blog post for you all on basics and style staples that I love and how I style my basics (part 2) and how I put them together on a daily basis. I will link all the pieces for you at the bottom of the post, and I hope that this helps you or gives you some inspiration. This is going to be a pretty hefty post, so grab a cuppa and enjoy!

ASOS Love List

As mentioned in one of my recent posts, we are currently in those ”in-between months” and don’t know whether to wear a leather jacket and scarf, a big warm coat or whether not wearing tights is acceptable yet. ASOS recently has been my go to for fashion, so I have put together a few pieces I have really been loving at the moment and trying to stop myself from buying!

 

Are there any pieces in particular you are loving at the moment?
