Look Book; Plus Size Fashion

Its spring in a few days time, but I’ve already made a transformation in my wardrobe to more spring outfits i dont really feel the cold so i dont layer up as much as some for this time of year. These are some of my favourite picks for this spring.

Leggings are my best friend i love leggings i own so many pairs and i have now found my all time favourite from simply be for only £8 there so comfortable.

As you can see the weather is still cold enough to pair my outfits with a jacket and boots but i dont have to fully wrap up in a coat which is bliss.

Dear Followers;- Real Talk

Dear followers, 

First i would like to thank everyone who’s stuck by my blog highs and lows and all the subscribers i have I’m so grateful for each and everyone of you.
This is a post with some real talk for you all and a little whats been going on.

So i started this blog about 1.5-2years ago and i started it with the intention of just expressing my love thoughts and hauls all to do with beauty, then as time went on i discovered some other blogging ideas that i found that i enjoyed doing and you enjoyed reading and they are more ‘fashion and lifestyle’ posts i would say so outfits of the day’s what I’ve been up to ect.. and i never thought i would have the confidence to do these posts but i have had and its all thanks to your amazing support.

Then 8months ago my personal life changed and my world was turned upside down with the passing of my father, and its taken such a toll on my life which has affected by posts, i used to upload so regularly now the last few months i go through a stage where I’m really motivated and feeing good then the next week I’m struggling and i suppose this is all apart of grieving for someone so special in life.
I felt the quality of my posts were so dreadfully poor I’ve actually gone back now and removed some if i could i would remove most of them.

I want to get back to having a positive blog space and producing something I’m proud of, I’ve always loved my blog and its an adventure my dad loved to hear about as he was a IT geek.

So what I’m going to do is over the next week really give my blog a revamp and update everything that needs to be done and start planning some posts like i used to and channel all my energy back into my blog, I’m currently out of work so i find myself procrastinating a lot but i want to achieve more positives and really re find myself and me and apart of me is this little space of the internet.

Im going to do more varied blogs i used to always think oh no thats going to be good enough or oh thats clique all bloggers do or say that but from experience reading some of blogs have helped me and if i can help anyone in any way i can.

Bare with me i am back and more active, and I’m so thankful for all the views and likes i continued to receive when i went MIA.

I want to do a massive give away to all my followers so keep a look out.

 

love to you all

Maintaining The Best Relationship

Whilst its the best feeling having a relationship it can become so easily for it all to go wrong. So here are my best tips on maintaining a relationship. Ive been with my current partner for 5years, so i have a fair idea of how to keep things healthy.

Things to remember;

  • ‘Distance makes the heart grow founder’  This is one i swear by, i dont mean that you have to move ten miles away but its all about having your own time to make you miss the other person and to keep there cute habits from becoming annoying. Weather its working separate jobs or going out in different friend groups every so often. You can even be in the same house and have your own time for example you can take yourself off to pamper yourself and do your own thing whilst your partner is in a separate part of the house. As much as you may want its not healthy spending every second of your day together.
  • Talk – Communication is key in any friendship or relationship. Be real talk about your thoughts your woes, this can also make your bond even stronger.
  • Keep a designated night to go all out – Have a date night once a week where you can glam up and go out just like when you used to date. This works best for couples that live together!
  • Comprimise – For any relationship to work there needs to be a level of give and take. For instance weather it comes down to what to have for dinner or what to watch on tv. Sometimes you have to meet in the middle.
  • Don’t try to change your partner – Theres no person that is perfect everyone has there flaws. Your partner you should love for there flaws n’ all!
  • Complements – Keep the relationship positive, say them soppy things give them complements.
  • Give what you expect to get – You can’t be not giving your partner a second of your time and expect a massive gift in return. Your equal and both deserve what makes each other happy.

 

*these are only opinions, some of these might work for you and your relationship

Date Night Make Up

For date night make up i choose one feature i want to be the main feature and focus solely on that. For example i will do an intense pink or glittery eye and nude lip, Or red lip and natural shadows with a little shimmer.
My face base i tend to go for a full coverage, and deep contoured and highlighted look with sculpted out brows.

Heres a selection of my recent date night looks;

The base is the same on all of the looks its my go to glam/date night base;
I start by priming the skin with Mac Strobe Cream and Laura Mercer Foundation Primer
Onto my brows, so i draw them on using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz
To sculpt my brows i use Mac Concealer In nw20 and go around my brows and with the excess i use to prime my lids. Then i go over and Colour Correct or Conceal.
Once thats all blending i go for the Seventeen Cream Bronzer and put in all the places where i want to bronze and contour, Then i apply my under eye highlight using the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer. 
Finally to blend the whole look together and to get the flawless look, i use Kiko Universal Foundation and using a beauty blender i blend over the highlight first then the dark shade. I blend until flawless. Looking back at my face i see if anything else needs to be added in if not i then set with some setting spray.

I set any problem areas and my under eye with Peaches & Cream Translucent powder as well as putting a wash of powder over my lids.
If I’m particular oily i will set my whole face with the Mac Mineralise Skin Finish first but i dont always do this step.

Using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit I then make my contour more intense until I’m happy with it and add some blusher usually The Body Shop 01 Blush. Then its time to make my face pop with some highlight, my go to is The Balm MarryLoumaniser Or The Carli Bybel Pallete. 

Finally I spritz my face with a Setting Spray and its onto the eyes.

Depending on the look i will normally use the Carli Bybel Pallete, Or Morphe 350M to create a look then use a pigment to highlight my lid.
For lashes i always always always use the Primark Sultry these are my favourite lashes.
Then to line my lid i use the Seventeen Wet Look Eyeliner and i must say this is the best for doing liner the brush is so delicate and the formula stays bright once applied.

Then its onto the lips..
For Red lips my go to is the No.7 900 Or Mac Ruby Woo. 
Nudes its the Primark Lifes A Beach Or Kiko 902 Lipstick. 

Then I’m ready! I hope you enjoyed!

Your Favourite Love Story

As cheesy as it sounds i honestly find my grandparents little love story the best, it shows true love and there just so cute.

For the purpose of this post i did ask them some little questions to fill in there love story. 

So they first started seeing each other when my Grandma was 19 and my Grandad was 23.
There first date involved going to there local pub to have a drink with there friends.
A few years passed then my grandad proposed standing on a fence gate in the woods,
They married on 7th of July 1962. [55Years this year]. I always remember being told how Grandad left the sticker on his new shoes on the day of the wedding.
To this day they’re still together soldering through every day, there main priority in life is each other and helping one another grow old together.

There love story contains nothing high and glamorous but the main feature in there love story that is the most inspirational is the fact that they believe in the ‘Marry Once’ rule and the vows you make at your wedding day are a life commitment. Dont get me wrong i can understand why some marriages can break down but i dont think people understand the true meaning of marriage any more and my grandparents just show case how it should be. They’ve stuck together through everything, to be the best husband and wife they can and even to this day through any struggles of old age they are never far apart from one another. They raised two children, took two grandchildren on like there own and love all there grandchildren and great grandchildren like there own and would go without just to help some one else. Honestly i could never imagine them apart they are like a fish without water, a world with no sun, a plane without wings.
I honestly adore my grandparents and i look at them in awe, and what they have together is what i dream i could only ever have.

here are my beautiful grandparents.

Whats your favourite love story?
