BELFAST BORN EDINBURGH BASED BLOGGER & FASHION COMMUNICATION STUDENT

9 December 2017

The end is near






How funny is the light change in these pics? They were all shot within ten minutes but It's getting dark scarily quickly in Edinburgh at the minute.

I haven't posted in over a month which is quite unforgivable but to be fair my uni deadlines have been stressing me out beyond belief but thankfully we have one more hand in and then we are free for Christmas! After handing in two big projects on Monday the girls and I have been pretending that uni is totally over and have been enjoying some stress free days even though we still have more to do. Chloe took the images above of what is possibly my most grown up outfit to date, I'm obsessed with these trousers and feel v v mature in them which is funny cause I'm 22 next week so I'm already mature I just don't act it. 

On Thursday I was lucky enough to be invited to Prettylittlething HQ with Caitlyn one of the other PLT sorority sisters. We had the most amazing day shooting Christmas content with the lovely girl who work with PLT and we got some gorgeous things to take home. I'm off today which is a novelty so I'm going to try and get my final hand in done because on Monday my friends, boyfriend and I are all heading to Belfast to celebrate my birthday which I'm buzzing about!

Charlie Miller hairdressing





My travels are well and truly over for a while. After a mad week of going to Amsterdam and London I'm back in Edinburgh and straight back to reality. Luckily for me I didn't even have time to get holiday blues because I was straight back into the hot seat with Charlie Miller Hairdressing. If you missed my original post about CM you can check it out here and read about how I was transformed into a (healthy) blonde a few months back.

I went back to the South St Andrews street salon today to chat to my personal stylist Hayley about what we should do next with my locks. Hayley has looked after me since my first visit to Charlie Miller and I trust her completely with my hair. I spoke to Hayley about how much I was loving being blonde but also about how much I enjoyed having some of my natural roots coming through. So we decided to pull my roots down so they were gradual and less stark and Hayley also put a slightly ashier tone through my hair which is perfect for Autumn. I was given the Smartbond treatment again as well as the Kerastase Fusio-Dose homelab which is a at home hair care system that the salon will match to your exact hair needs, mine being moisture and strengthening. These kits are available from all five Charlie Miller salons and retail at £44.
I have the genuine FEAR sharing this before and after picture but it has to be done to show how much of an amazing job Hayley did, she's a hair wizard.
You can book an appointment with Charlie Miller via the website, over the phone or pop into one of their 5 salons across Edinburgh. Students can get 30% off all cut and colour appointments Monday-Thursday!

Nu colour blogger event











I’m just home from London, after two days in the big city with Lewis. We were lucky enough to be invited to the Nu Skin “Nu colour” event which was a showcase of all of Nu Skins new makeup products. In particular the event was for the lip plumping balm which is a really exciting new product for Nu Skin. 

The event was in the gorgeous Bulgari hotel in Knightsbridge and we were treated to make up demonstrations and a free bar, which Lewis and I took full advantage of. Attendees treated to a makeup demo by Shreya who is one of Nu Colours professional makeup artists, Shreya transformed my brows in a matter of seconds and gave me some fab tips on how to be use the new Nu Colour range.

 I got a fab goody bag to take home which included some of new collection products including their eyebrow kit, a set of makeup brushes, an eyelash treatment and of course, the lip plumping balm.  The lip plumping balm is something that the team are really excited about and I can confirm that it 100% works. Once I applied it I felt the tell tale tingle of a lip plumping balm and I'm excited to use it over the next few weeks, with the makeup artist recommending I apply it before bed to wake up with a fuller pout. 


I've been using the products everyday since the event and can honestly say I'm hooked, especially on the eyebrow kit and the invisible matte finishing powder. You can check out the whole range of Nu Colour cosmetics here.

PLTsorority







Shoes-Superga

Happy Happy Wednesday,

I've spent my Wednesday hiding from the Edinburgh rain while shooting these images with Lewis and tidying my room (long overdue). 
However I have had some exciting news recently, I've been asked to be part of the PLTsorority crew which means I'll be getting loads of goodies, event invites and a cheeky discount code for anyone that wants it! I'm over the moon to be working with Prettylittlething and I'm so excited for what this year has to bring. 
After growing up being obsessed with 80's american coming of age movies I'm fulfilling my dream of being a sorority gal. 

I'm head to toe Prettylittlething (obvs) and I'm suddenly obsessed with wearing red, I never thought it suited me before but something about going blonde has changed my mind. These jeans are quickly becoming one of my fave pairs and they fit like a glove. 

Off to go do the uni work I've been putting off due to binge watching Game of Thrones, till next time.

I'm still addicted to buying jackets

Top- Missguided
Trousers- Depop Hannahwah
Jacket- Prettylittlething
Shoes- Superga

My favourite thing to buy is and always has been, a good jacket. My wardrobe is full to the brim of jackets, some really random ones and most massively too big for me but I wear them all the same. 
I couldn't resist this absolute killer jacket from Prettylittlething even though I'm as broke as ever. It'll look fab in Amsterdam over the super extra outfits that I'm planning.

I was at the at the noisy girls club event recently which was so much fun, it was in Edinburgh and it was basically an event for creatives to network. There were talks, workshops and stalls and I picked up these trousers from Hannahwahs stall. They fit like a glove and I'm a bit obsessed with them at the minute. Check out her depop she has some class pieces!  

At least shooting these images made me feel better about not doing any uni work the past few days. Really need to keep on top of it but the girls and I went out last night so we'll be recovering for a week due to our old age. We've turned into OAPs going to bed at 10 and rarely going out now that we're in third year.
