Fawn Wishlist


Today, I thought I'd make a wish list post seeing as I've yet to make one. What better first wish list post to be done than for Fawn. To give you a little insight to what Fawn is, it's an online shopping boutique that sells clothing items down to purses. Iram is the founder of Fawn and I would like to think of her as a friend also. Fawn is UK based so they do have some good UK offers such as free shipping over 35 pound and free return. Lucky duckys!

#1. Getting right into my wish list, here is my first one. This is the Elissa Khaki Top with Drop Neck and Chain Detail. As much as I scrolled to check what else was on the site, I always came back to this top. The color is lovely and the back just completes the design. Effortlessly dresses up a look.

#2. Next, is this Jess Crochet Pencil Skirt. As simple as it may look, I feel like it can look quite elegant. The floral lace gives it a classy feel.

#3. Next on the list is this Ariana Diamante Bow Satchel. Just look at it. What more can I say?

#4. Lastly, is this Giselle Neoprene Skater Skirt. I don't know what it is with skirts like these but I'm sure I own about 3 that look the same. You just can't go wrong with skater skirts. Pair it with a blouse, leather jacket, heels and you're out the door!

And there you have it! My Fawn wish list. I know none of these things seem fall and winter appropriate but you can definitely layer them up to fit any season. Let me know what your wish lists are.

Red Riding Hood Inspired Makeup


Since we are in October, I thought it'd be fitting to do a post on a Red Riding Hood inspired makeup look. I unfortunately don't have a red cape like hood, so this will have to do!

Lets get right into the look!

On my eyes I started with a eye shadow primer. The primer I used was Too Faced Shadow Insurance. I have a previous post on this if you want to check out what I think about it. I used a lot of different colors to achieve this look. I started by using one of the Lorac Pro Palette colors in Garnet and blended that into my crease with my Sigma blending brush. I then started using some warm brown shades (they don't have names; sorry!) from the BH Day & Night Palette. I dusted a lighter warm brown on my lids then moved on to applying a darker brown using my flat shader brush from Real Techniques.

I then continued to blend Garnet into my crease to intensify the color. After that I used Espresso from the Lorac palette and put that all over my lid, blending it out after every application of color. To make the look a little more intense I applied the muted red color from the BH palette and mixed it with Garnet on my crease.

I used my liquid eyeliner to apply my winged look and then dabbed Black from the Lorac palette to darken up my liner. I used Espresso and Garnet and smoked it out underneith my lash line and voila your completed Red Riding Hood inspired look! Just add a mascara of your choice and you're done! I personally decided to wear the Ardell Demi Whispies just to add that something but its up to you if you'd like to or not. Also, you can pair this look with a nude lip product and make it more night time appropriate or you can pair it with a darker color to really go all out. Both looks are great.

I've always liked Red Riding Hood so I thought I would make a post on it. What better month to do that than October? Also, huge credit to Mia who took these awesome pictures (which she does a lot for me because she's great, or I'll poke her until she does. Which ever works. Haha) So thank you Mia!
 Let me know what your creepy October look will be.

Thanks for reading!

Comfort Zone

Hello again!

This post will be probably one of the most exciting posts to write because I'm beyond impressed with this product I bought. So, as you may or probably may not know I spend quite some time at Mia's place (she has come up with the brilliant idea that I should keep a little bit of my own makeup stash at her's for when I'm around). We went out looking for pretty basic items for me and we came across Wet n Wild. I've never really had any products of theirs but I know they always get great reviews for what they put out. I decided to grab one of their eye shadow palettes and I have to tell you all about it!

The palette I picked up was the 738 Comfort Zone palette and let me just add that the colors in this palette are stunning. It has 2 sets of colors that you can mix and match with; 2 brow bone colors, 2 eyelid colors, ect. Want to know the best part? (apart from the price, of course) The colors are beyond pigmented! I kind of found it a little insane just how pigmented these shadows could be! As I am pretty bad at explaining colors, I'll swatch how they look and this is with just one swipe.

These colors are beautiful, rich and pigmented, and the variety of colors makes it easy to mix and match to achieve different looks using just this one palette. They have different palettes with all shades of different colors to choose from. The price that I paid for this palette was only $4.68. That's an absolute bargain for the quality of this.

Overall this is one of the best shadow palettes I own, and I definitely recommend it. And you may be seeing it again in the future of my blog (hint hint.) Haha. Let me know what your favorite eye shadow palette is.

Autumn's Vampy Lips


Today I just want to make a quick first impression of a couple of lip products that I have recently purchased. I'm sure I've mentioned before that I love nude colored lip products. I also felt that because I am quite pale that colored lip products would make me look even paler. Even though I've stuck to my nude colors I have ventured out and bought a beautiful red color that I have a review on, on one of my previous posts. As lovely as that was, I still felt that it just didn't suit me.

As it is now autumn season and darker lips are creeping up again. I decided to go and find a darker purple shade of lip liner and color. I've come upon NYX's lip liner pencil in 812 Plum and NYX's soft matte lip cream in Copenhagen. Let's just say I was a little nervous about purchasing these items because they are quite daring. Once I tried them I absolutely fell in love; The liner gives off a lovely base color to line the lips and the lip crème is just my favorite part! It has such a smooth and rich consistency that I immediately fell in love with. Also, the bottle of the lip crème feels so nice! I'm guessing because it's a soft matte lip crème, they tried to match with packaging? Maybe that's why the lid feels so soft. My logic? I just really like that part.


This lip combo is just amazing and I'm pretty impressed with it so far. Overall I would definitely tell you to give it a go. Even if you're a bit shy, I think its worth a shot. These are awesome products and I paid less than 10 bucks for both items.

What's your favorite autumn lip color?

Leibster Award Nomination

Hello again!

So today I have a bit of a different post. I've been seeing lately a whole bunch of bloggers write posts on the Leibster award nominations. I did a little bit of research to understand what exactly it was and I thought it was a pretty cool idea. The lovely Lauren from LongingForACity nominated me, which was really sweet of her! You can go check out her post on this award here .

Let's get right into the rules (Which I did grab from Laurens post)!

  • Get nominated
  • Link back the person who nominated you
  • Answer the 11 questions provided by the person who nominated you
  • Create 11 new questions for the people you choose to nominate (Optional - you can keep the questions the same if you wish)
  • Nominate 5 - 20 people for the award
The Questions

1. What are your favourite public figures? (Bloggers, YouTube, Celebrities)
My favorite public figures would be those who are genuine and kind hearted. There's something about those types of people that's absolutely lovely. One of my favorite public figures I would say would be Nicole Guerriero (YouTube Beauty Vlogger), even though I've never met her she seems like a honest and caring type of person.

2. How long have you been blogging for?
I had a "blog" years ago that wasn't very blog like. Haha. It didn't have much content at all and wasn't well thought out. I wouldn't count that one at all. As for my blog now, it hasn't been long at all. I put my first post up in May, so a few months really. I've really been loving it!

3. Where do you want to go with your blog? (professional or just a diary)
Well I have this blog now just as a hobby. Something I'm really enjoying. If later down the line it becomes professional I would think that would be just as amazing. For now, I'm loving it being my outlet and getting to know the blogging community.

4. What tags or awards have you ever been nominated for?
As far as the blogging world, just this one! Haha.
If you're asking in general, then I did get an award for Best Construction for my prom dress in my last year of high school. (I was in fashion and we made our own prom dresses.)

5.  One piece of advice for your 12 year old self.
Just to have a bit more self confidence. Don't take the negative things to heart and find things about yourself you love.

6. Favourite event ever attended?
I don't think I've ever attended a huge event. I have been to youth rallys with my church which I absolutely loved! Also, my cousins wedding was really nice. Do those count? haha

7. Favourite time of the year?
I have two answers for this. My first would be spring because by that time I'm tired of the cold weather and I just want to wear shorts. Also, my birthday is in the spring time. My second would be autumn because the weather is feeling really nice, I love when the leaves change color, and the fashion for this time of year is one of my favorites.

8. Link the blog post you're most proud of.
I don't have many posts up but my favorite so far would have to be my most recent. I love me some outfit posts and this was by far my favorite with the help of my friend Mia who took the photos.
The blog post I'm most proud of thus far.

9. Three facts about yourself.
  1. My favorite animal is a Sparrow Bird.
  2. I get mistaken for a 16 year old.. I'm 21 haha
  3. I love thunderstorms, especially when it's night and I'm getting ready to go to bed.
10. Something you're looking forward to.
Is it cheesey to say I'm looking forward to revamping my room to make it all cozy so I can relax and blog during those cold months? I am looking forward to it!

11. Do you collect anything?
I do! I actually like to save up my movie tickets for when I go to the cinema. I just like to look back and see what movie I saw and when. It's just a little fun thing to do.

Well those were the questions! Thanks again to Lauren for the nomination and the questions!
I do believe this is passed around to bloggers with fewer followers? (I'm not quite sure) I just picked a few of my favorite blogs (numbers not in mind)  in hopes maybe they would enjoy it too!

My Nominations:
  1. Mia's Beauty Addiction
  2. LouJay
  3. Beauty, Bit's 'n' Blog's
  4. Lovestruck for Louboutins
  5. The British Girl

Questions to answer (I did grab a few questions from different sources)

  1. Do you have a signature scent? (Fragrances you always go back too?)
  2. If you were to visit anywhere in the world, all expenses paid, where would it be?
  3. Story behind your blog name?
  4. Three must have beauty products?
  5. If you were to eat only one type of food for a year, which would it be?
  6. If you could open up your own shop, what would the name be?
  7. Favorite thing to do on your down time?

Coral Outfit

So I know we're now in autumn but that doesn't mean you can't bust out the coral clothing one last time! I've spent the morning with one of my best friends and fellow bloggers Mia from Miasbeautyaddiction.BlogSpot.com (Who in fact took these incredible pictures and any other outfit photos of mine).

Let me jump right in and tell you about this outfit.

Starting from the top, I have a coral colored, fitted and kind of cropped blazer that I bought a few years ago so I'm not really sure where I got it from. The fit and the look of it is absolutely lovely! Underneath that I'm wearing a basic V-neck shirt from Old Navy. I love the simple shirts like this one because it's one you can pair with any outfits or build outfits around it. Definitely a staple.


Moving on to the lower half, I'm wearing what is actually a skirt with built in shorts under it (How cool is that?).  I bought this about a month ago from Forever21. When I saw it, I knew I just had to have it! It's a beautiful soft material with floral printed on it. To make it a bit more cozy and put together I added some sheer nude stockings with it.

On my feet I'm wearing these nude pumps I got from Payless (which are one of my favorite). After a while they get more and more comfortable to walk in. Can't go wrong with these. For jewelry, I'm wearing this gorgeous statement necklace from Forever21. It's coral/pink material braided with gold detailing and studs. Love it! To top it all off I'm wearing my (go - to) watch that I have worn previously from Kohl's.


So once again special thanks to Mia who you can follow on Twitter and her blog which will both be posted below. And that's it for my outfit of the day! What's your favorite outfit to wear?

Edgy Autumn Outfit

Hello again!

So, Autumn is upon us and you know what that means. Scarves, gloves, boots, warm drinks and the leaves changing colors. I decided to put together an autumn outfit for the upcoming season. When the days get colder I'm sure you can layer this up a bit more. Just add a sweater underneath the jacket and a scarf and I'd think it'll look great and very comfy! But for now lets get into the outfit..

Starting from top to bottom, my white, v-neck under shirt is from Old Navy. I bought that and a couple others for only 5 bucks each. Not bad for good quality under shirts. The jacket I'm wearing over it is from Kohl's. I loved this jacket from the moment I saw it and was just waiting for the days to get a bit cooler so I could wear it! I think it's olive green color gives the outfit a autumny feel to it.

Next I have on possibly my favorite shorts I own at the minute. This cranberry structured short I bought from Forever21. I made it a little more appropriate for the cooler months by adding some simple yet effective black tights. Finishing it up with my go-to boots that I was gifted from Traffic.

To top it all off, for my jewelry I just have a stack of three rings that I bought from Forever21. And that's it! That's my edgy autumn look complete. Special thanks to Mia from Miasbeautyaddiction.BlogSpot.com for taking these pictures for me!

What's your favorite thing about autumn?
