My summer ball outfit and makeup! 

I’ve had such a busy two weeks! Last ever exam, finishing uni, summer ball and I’ve got a job before I even arrived back home! But between the stress the partying made it worth while!

So for my end of uni ball I needed to make slightly more effort than a usual night out in my shorts and converse. Instead of a dress I went for a jumpsuit. I bought this last year for a cruise I went on so I was dying to wear it again. It was only £7! From h&m in the sale, so obviously won’t be available now but moral of the story: keep your eyes on sale rails! You don’t need to break the bank for a fancy outfit! 

The original outfit had a much higher neckline but to add a little something I altered it slightly to have a much lower plunge. This is totally out of my comfort zone, especially as I have nothing in that department to show off! But I like to think it looked classy!

I added minimal jewellery and my highest black chunky heels. Then I decided to curl my hair with a thin wand and add a ton of hairspray. 

For makeup I’d bought mac’s creme de nude, so I was desperate to wear that with a dark eye. I did a kind of cut crease with some Mac gold glitter, and some huge lashes. Hard to see in the picture but I thought it added some drama to the look.

So that’s it! Danced in to the early hours and now I’m putting my feet up for a well deserved rest!

Ootd: Spring smart casual look!


I had the luxury of going shopping with my mom this weekend and ended up with a few new items to help me get into spring (if the rain ever goes away).

So this was an outfit I wore to a family birthday meal last night that I thought I’d share with you.

Firstly the jeans are my beloved miss Selfridge steffi jeans which are comfy and supportive, help suck everything in! 

Then my new top is from H&M in their coachella collection. I’ve been after a white bardot top for a while and this is so gorgous, pairing with denim shorts in summer will look awesome!

Then I have my leather jacket from forever 21. You can never go wrong with a leather jacket. They’ll always be in fashion and make every look a bit more edgy.

Then there’s my new gorgous shoes! These are really for my holiday but I couldn’t resist trying them out! They were on sale in new look and are the perfect nude heels to go with any look! A chunky heel also means I can actually walk with out breaking my neck! 

I teamed my look with my Michael Kors clutch and jewellery, a glittery smokey eye, and I didn’t have time to do anything with my hair so it’s au nateral. 

Let me know what you think!
