First off, I bought this bag around four days ago and I am literally in love with it. It's from H&M and only £19.99! Such a bargain, I know!
So, as with most people I obviously cannot go a second without my phone. The case I have was a gift from my boyfriend from Case Scenario (you can't go wrong with a marble effect). I always have to carry a powder with me for my oily skin, at the moment I am using the Marc Jacobs powder with my Nars brush. I've also found a little and very cheap dupe of my favourite perfume Flowerbomb, It's called 'Oreintal' one of Zaras own brand perfumes. It is around £3 for a roller small size so well worth the money and so much easier to carry around.
I am always, always writing lists. So when I was gifted this little black note book from Nomadic I was delighted to be able to pop it into my bag to jot down everyday things. Of course eyeliner, concealer and an everyday lipstick are two things I always chuck in my bag. Usually 'Fresh Brew' by Mac or 'Deborah' by Nars.
Last but not at all least is my beloved Alexander Wang purse. I could never live without it!

I wore my favourite dress at the moment, an Asos petite wrap dress and some mid heeled sandals from Miss Selfridge. Such a simple outfit to wear but I think it looks quite casual/dressy which is what I wanted.
Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

The shirt I am wearing is from the Topshop maternity section. I got it in a size 8 as it was the smallest size they had but it is made out of the softest material and doesn't look bad when it creases.
The bucket bag is what I actually bought today from H&M (a £19.99 bargain!) and decided I needed to wear it as soon as I got out of the shop. I've been lusting over so many high end bucket bags for a long time and saw this and needed it. Sandals are from Office and the cateye sunglasses are from Asos.
P.S As you have probably noticed I have had all of my hair chopped off. I'm in love with a good top knot especially on girls with short hair so I actually think it looks quite cool. What do you think?
Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Here are my current top ten makeup items at the moment. I've been such a big fan of any shade of brown makeup for a 90's inspired look.
Nars Dual-Intensity eyeshadow in the shade Dione.
Nars are definitely my favourite makeup brand at the moment and there dual-intensity eyeshadows are not letting them down. I only have Dione at the moment which is a lovely 'metallic chamagne beige' but I will obviously be picking up a few more shades.
Marc Jacobs eyeliners (pencil and liquid).
I have such a hard time finding an eyeliner that will stay on all day for me. I have oily eyelids which sadly means any kind of eyeliner I use starts to either come off or transer onto the top of my eyelid. I popped into Marc Jacobs (on Mount Street in London I think?) to have a little look and found this pair of liners. I am so glad I gave them a try as they're the best liners I have ever used and really do not budge at all! 100% worth the money. Apparently, the only store in the UK that sells the Marc Jacobs beauty range is this one so if you're visiting London you should pop in and stock up.
Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet.
I also have problems finding a foundation for my oily skin. I have tried and tested so many different types with no luck until I came across this. It is very lightweight so if you're a more full coverage girl I wouldn't recommend it. If you're looking for a velvety soft formula then this one is for you!
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer.
I don't really need to say much about this as it is already so many beauty bloggers favourite concealor. Mine is in the shade 'Chantilly'. A little of this goes such a long way too.
Mac Cosmetics lipstick in the shade Styled in Sepia.
Unfortunately, this was part of the Matte Lip collection and isn't available to buy anymore (sorry!). This is the perfect 90's brown matte shade and if you can get your hands on it on Ebay or Depop you are one lucky lady!
Eyeko Brow Gel.
My only brow gell I use. The wand it the perfect size and the colour makes your brows look thicker then ever before.
Dior Pore Minimising Primer.
If you have oily skin like me, this is a primer for you. I have suggested this to so many people and got some of my friends hooked on it too. The smell isn't nice (I find that it weirdly smells like gas) but the end result after using it is lovely.
Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder.
This is literally my favourite item of makeup ever. I am absolutely awful at applying contour but this combined with my Nars Ita brush makes it the most simple thing in the world. The colour is a perfect greyish brown which makes it look so natural which I love.
Becca Skin Perfector in Moonstone.
I have an addiction to highlighters. I even still have a Benafit Moonbeam circa 20012 in my drawer. I bought this as it is used by the lovely Nikkie Tutorials on Youtube and I am so glad I did. IT gives off such a lovely glow instead of a sparkly finish and looks really natural.
So there you have it! Sorry about such a long post but I could go on and on about makeup I love. If you have any suggestions on beauty items you love then don't hesitate to tell me.

I have decided to do a little bedroom tour (mainly just my desk space and rail). I'm still in the process of minamalising and decorating my room the way I want it. As you can probably tell, I have a soft spot for Ikea. Every piece of furniture I have purchased is from there! I still have so many ideas on how to adjust things. Such as trying to find some illustrations to add to my 'magazine wall' and maybe paint a wall black? I'm not too sure yet but here is what it looks like right now. I've been asked a lot where my desk chair and bed cover is from, they're suprisingly both from Ebay.

The second day of London was lovely. We had sunshine, pizza and pressed juices. I wore my Asos wrap top, Topshop jeans and Next pointed flats. If you're ever in London, I would definitely recommend visiting Flatplanet (by Liberty) and Joe and The Juice (Oxford circus) for light easy food and drinks on a hot day.
