Outfit Month #17

*what I’m wearing*
Jeans – Next Maternity
Vest – Primark (new longline)
Waistcoat – Next Signature (Last Winter)
Shoes – Topshop

I totally love these shoes and the best thing is I bought them for under a tenner from eBay!
My biggest tip to any of you wannabe fashionista’s on a tight budget is never buy this season full price, Style isn’t about having what’s in the shops RIGHT NOW it’s about what you like and how you wear it. If you see something you like hold out and chances are it will be on eBay in a few months for a fraction of the price.

My makeup was neutral as usual but I went a little heavier on the eyes.. My brows AND shadow are both the HD Brow Palette I got in this months GlossyBox. The pigmentation is fantastic so they are absolutely wearable for eyes as well as brows. It’s a fantastic multi-use product everyone should have.. a great one for travel. I’m giving Benefit’s They’re Real another go on my lashes. I do like the effect I just don’t like the time it takes to remove… we’ll see.. I might grow to love it enough to put up with it. One thing’s for sure I am not going to let it dry up and go to waste having spent £18 on the sucker.
On my lips I have Miners Sweetlips in Melba. It’s a cross between a gloss and balm and as my lips have been feeling dry lately I thought it would be a welcome treat. I just wish they did some deeper shades ’cause I really like the Sweetlips range. On my cheeks I have Miners Bronzer/Blush in Sunblush and I’m wearing my trusty BB cream.. you can even see my freckles it’s a really sheer finish yet hides all of my imperfections.. what more could you want?
Just as an FYI
My new baby arrived today (no not that one) My Canon EOS 1100D. I have wanted an SLR for the longest time and the Nikon Coolpix L100 “bridge” camera I bought last year did its job but never really satisfied the craving so I finally took the plunge and I’m already so glad I did. I will do a more in depth post for those who want it but I thought I’d let you know that both this and my September GlossyBox post were taken with this new camera so if you notice a sudden improvement in picture quality (which I hope you do) that’s why! I intend to film with this too so I will be selling my old camera. If any of you are interested let me know.
