Weekend Haul | EG

Hiya everyone! I’m so sorry that I haven’t blogged for two weeks, but I’ve had a lot of work to do recently, and I’ve finally gotten chance to sit down and write a post for all of you!

This week I’m going to show you what I’ve bought recently, which is quite a lot more than I usually would do as I got paid and thought I’d treat myself ( a lot )


The Shirt Dress.

The first thing I picked up was this gorgeous shirt dress, which was £19.99 from New Look. I’ve been staring at this dress for so long now, and have tried it on atleast three times. This time I tried it on, and new I had to buy it. The pattern is so gorgeous, and as grey is one of my favourite colours to wear I knew I had to get it. It was actually my friend that persuaded me to buy this, as is the case with most of these items.

Cactus.

Today I went into ikea, and as I walked down to the tills, I saw these three cactus sitting together and thought they were so adorable! Yet again, my friend told me to buy them and here I am adoring them. They look so cute all together on my dressing table, and for just £4.50 for all three, you can’t go wrong.

Makeup.

The first makeup piece I bought was the MUA moisturising primer. I have a love for primers, and thought a moisturising one would be so good as a two in one kind of product. The packaging is so simple and looks lovely in my makeup organiser and I can’t wait to use this product and test it out!

The second product I bought was the Freedom Pro Studio fixing spray. Sadly, the matte spray had ran out, which was the one I was looking for. However, at around £5 I thought I might as well try this. My makeup seems to come off easier as I have oily skin, so I thought I would try a fixing spray to see if all of the rave reviews are right.

Have you guys bought anything you love recently?

Are there any blog posts you would like to see?

Have a lovely day,

What’s In My Bag? | EG

When I first started my blog in April last year, What’s In My Bag was one of the first posts I composed. I loved reading these posts, and watching similar videos on YouTube. As its been over a year since I’ve done this post, I thought I’d give you an updated version!


The bag I have is this one from River Island. This is a shoulder bag in a mink colour. It has a mostly faux suede body with a faux leather contrast and the River Island gold bar. It also has pretty tassels hanging off it and a reversible strap, which has a snakeskin pattern on one side and is baby pink on the other. The bag closes with a magnetic presstud and has a zip pocket and normal pocket on the inside. This bag cost £32, which is quite expensive, but when you think of how versatile, and how pretty it is, I can justify it.


The first things that I have in my bag are my purses. Yes that’s plural. I keep my notes and cards in my holographic purse, which is from New Look. I then keep all of my silver change in this coin purse which is also from New Look. I love the holographic purse as its so quirky, yet matches my bag perfectly. The coin purse is also so cute to carry around!


The next things that I have in my bag are my phone, my lipstick and my sunglasses. I use the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipcream  in the colour 07 ‘nude-ist’ which is a pretty red toned pink. When I bought this, I thought it would be more brown toned, but it dried quite red toned. It is a very similar colour to my nyx sleek matte lip cream in ‘Cannes’. 

I carry my phone around all of the time, obviously as I never know when I will need to google something, take a photo or contact someone. I have the silver iPhone 6 in 16gb. I got my case from h and m, mostly because it matches all of my clothes.

Even though Britain is infamous for the amount of rain we get, I like to be hopeful and carry my sunglasses with me. You never know when the sun may come out, and I guess carrying these large cat eyes from New Look is helpful ( if a bit optimistic ).

That all I carry in my bag with me! I definately used to carry a lot more. At one time, I actually used to carry an eyeshadow palette with me.

Do you guys have anything you always carry round? Are there any posts you’d like me to do?

Wish List | EG

I feel like I haven’t done a wish list in an extremely long time. Considering the amount of time I spend gazing into shop windows or uhm-img and aah-ing over clothes that I can’t afford, a wish list is kind of expected. Today I’ve gathered a few things that I like at the moment ( and might even own hopefully! ) 

              
The first thing is this gorgeous playsuit from Missguided. After seeing this on Sarocha B’s channel on YouTube ( which I would definitely recommend because her blog and YouTube are my favourite! ) I fell in love with it! It’s really pretty and would match a lot of things, since it is black and white. I’ve recently bought some adidas superstars which would look really nice with it. For £25 it is a bit pricey but is definately worth it as it is very neutral.

When I went to town the other, I stumbled across this suede bomber jacket from New Look I fell in love. It is quite a light beige, which means it will go with a lot of outfits. It is also a really soft suedette, as real suede would not be £34.99. Although it’s not practical, it is really chic.

Ariana Grande has recently released her Viva Glam collection. There is a ‘good’ and ‘bad’ product. The ‘good’ product is a light pink lipgloss, supposedly showing off your angelic side and the ‘bad’ product is this deep plum colour, made to represent the darker side of yourself. I think this is a really clever idea and represents arianas style chance too. I personally like the lipstick, as I don’t like lipgloss or really pink colours. I’ve never owned a Mac product, but I would love to.

The next thing is this jumper, which I also saw when I saw the jacket. It is a high neck oat coloured jumper. The petite version is down to £14.39 in the sale. It’s so pretty and would look really nice with some jeans and trainers or boots.i think this is my most likely purchase out of my list.

These nails were on Sierra Furtados Instagram. I love Sierras style, and she is one of my favourite youtubers. I’ve never had acrylics before and have been looking for inspiration and these are by far my favourites. As I am going on holiday in a few weeks, I might get acrylics for the first time! 

Have any of you guys had acrylics? What’s on your wish list?

Have a lovely day!

Shorts 3 ways | EG 

Even though it is still winter here, and yes it is freezing and yes snow is forecast, we can still dream about summer! Maybe even Spring will bring some heat? After going to town with my friends I picked up some denim shorts and months of searching for the perfect ones. I did own the topshop mom shorts, but being so tall they were too short and uncomfortable. I found some ripped dark denim shorts in miss selfridge for just £10! I would link them but they’ve gone out of stock!

I’ve put together three outfits that would be comfy and really pretty in summer.

  
This outfit is really pretty. Wearing trainers keeps it comfy, without loosing the look. These Roche runs and a baby pink colour and are so comfy! I’ve had this topshop t shirt since last summer, but I bought a new bright white one. It’s great if the sun is out so you won’t burn your shoulders. The shorts are really comfy and look great with the bright white of the t shirt.

  
This outfit is really casual. The top is from topshop and is in a raglan style. It’s really casual but still looks cool. By wearing monochrome colours, you can match anything. These skater shoes are also from topshop and are really comfy. By wearing little dolly shoe socks, it prevents your shoes rubbing or getting dirty inside.

  
This is definitely my favourite outfit. The halter top is from topshop and I’ve seen it on multiple you tubers and bloggers. The mustard colour looks really nice next to the denim shorts. Converse match this outfit really well because they are neautral but pull the outfit together. Converse are great if you’re walking a lot or don’t want to wear sandals.

Have you guys got a favourite outfit?

Have a lovely day!

3 concert outfits that will last the night | EG

Whether you’ve been to a concert, are going to one or are at one, we all know that they can get hot, busy and uncomfortable. I’ve put together three outfits that will look really cute but will be comfy at the same time.

              
 This first one is really casual. I actually own the jeans and top and they look really nice together. This vintage fila jacket is gorgeous! It’s crushed velvet and white, so it will match anything. It’s in the sale on the asos marketplace. As you probably know, your phone will always run out of charge as soon as you go to take a picture or video. This urban outfitters one is really pretty and portable!

              
This outfits is probably my favourite. This halterneck is in the sale at boohoo! A halterneck is great because it will keep you cool but look really nice too. Fjallkaven kanken bags are really popular and are good for posture too! If you’re like me, you’d probably have a bag full of snacks. Vans are probably the comfiest shoes ever! These old skool vans match everything and won’t hurt your feet after hours of jumping.

              
If you’re looking for a less casual outfit then this is the one for you. These shoes are really pretty and the lace up detail does lovely with the simply cardigan and jeans. The Bralet is from missguided, they also had it in black too. I think a simple French plait is really chic and comfortable for a concert.

What’s your favourite outfit?

Have a lovely day!

Mini Haul | EG♡

Recently I went shopping and bought some new things for Autumn! I love the colours and prints that come out this time of year and thought I’d treat myself to a couple of things.

  
Garner micellar cleansing water – £3.50

Pattern skirt – newlook £19.99

Shoes – topshop £32

So many bloggers have raved about this water and after seeing my friend use it I realised how amazing it actually is! I persuaded my mum to get it because I knew she’d love it. She’s yet to try it out but I know she’ll love it. It removes make up that you don’t even think you have on, it’s amazing how much more it removes!

I saw one of the employees at new look wearing this skirt and fell in love with it! I looked around so many new looks but none of them had it in my size. Yesterday when I was shopping this one was on the last chance to buy rack in my size, I couldn’t believe it! Of course I went to the till and bought it straight away.

I need some new shoes for winter as my t-bars are now 2 years old. I saw these in topshop a while ago and I think they’re adorable! They’re kind of like doc martens but they’re suede. Since they’re black, they’ll match everything. Also they’re real leather and for £32 that’s not bad at all!

Have you guys got any new purchases?

Have a lovely day!

Autumn Outfit | EG♡

As you can probably tell, I’m really excited for Autumn. I’ve already made an Autumn Wishlist and yet here is another Autumn clothes post! I love the colours of Autumn, and buying clothes in those shades are my absolute favourite.

         
New Look

– jumper £17.99 

– bag £22.99 ( also available in tan )

– skirt £19.99 ( also available in navy, khaki and camel )

Topshop 

– gilet £65 ( very similar here from New Look )

– boots £35

I love this outfit! The colours compliment each other really well. I can imagine going for a walk in the evening wearing this. I love the cold shoulders on the jumper, it gives nice detail to a plain item. 

Teamed with the burgundy skirt, which is thick and warm, the jumper looks really cute. If you tucked it in you could see the gold detail of the zip.

This gilet literally goes with anything. It is very versatile as it is a neutral colour. The fur is very soft and it does up discreetly. I love the colour of it as it is perfect for this season.

The bag is very autumnal. I think it looks a lot more expensive than it is. The crocodile effect contrast with the tassels and gives a lovely designer look.

Black boots are a staple for any Autumn wardrobe. They go with anything ; skirts, jeans, shorts, leggings. Black is a very versatile colour and compliments this outfit nicely. It matches the tassels on the bag which is a cute touch.

Do you have any favourites for Autumn?

Have a lovely day!
