May Favourites | EG

After posting my June wish list last week, I realised that I hadn’t done my May favourites! I know, I’m an awful blogger. This week I’ve decided to share my favourite this month, including clothes, makeup and and other random bits! I’ve started to figure out the kind of look I would like my blog to have, as I have moved away from the more girly, sticker obsessed blogger I once was. I hope you all still enjoy reading my posts, and I would always appreciate recommendations of what you would like to see!

Makeup

Recently I’ve become a bit makeup obsessed. I never use to wear makeup until around Christmas, and then suddenly the majority of my wages have been blown on the newest primer!

These are my favourite pieces from this month that I’ve really enjoyed using.

Face

This past month I’ve loved having a bit of tan for once! I burn almost instantly so fake tan has been a good friend of mine this month. Don’t worry though, I haven’t gone full out orange, just a subtle bronze. The Benefit Hoola Bronzer has been my absolute favourite to bronze up my face with and contour a little. It looks so pretty and is very matte, so it looks really nice with a highlighter.

Another thing that I’ve really enjoyed using is the Freedom Pro Studio Fixing Spray. I couldn’t find the matte one, which is the one I would’ve rather had, yet for £5 I wasn’t going to leave this behind. It is really good actually. It has kind of a nutty smell to it? Maybe that is just me. I honestly think that my makeup stays on so much better, especially since I prefer wearing lighter coverage on my face. I would definately recommend it.

Eyes

I adore the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara, as do countless youtubers and bloggers. It is honestly amazing! I was not one for plastic brushes as I preferred proper bristles, yet after using this I am converted! I got the waterproof one as it holds the curl in your lashes a lot better, however I think I would like to purchase the one with argan oil in as that sounds really good too!

Lips

Recently I have really got into lip products. I was able to pick up this revolution lipstick in ‘looking ahead’ from Superdrug and it is the prettiest pink brown colour. If you read my blog a lot, you’ll know I am a lover of these kinds of colours.

I’m sure everyone knows that nyx is now coming to boots! I squealed when I saw it in my local store. Recently I went back and picked up a Butter Gloss in Praline. It is a lovely light brown colour and feels like velvet on the lips. The colour looks so lovely over the revolution lipstick too!

Clothes



My two favourite clothing items have been my topshop mom jeans and my adidas superstars. Paired together the look so laid back, yet stylish. The trainers are the comfiest shoes I’ve honestly ever owned! Since I’m a 6 I can get the children’s ones, and when you sign up you get 15% off, so these shoes cost just £37.95 with postage! White is great for summer and hopefully they stay this white.

Other favourites

My favourite youtuber this month has been McKenna Kalein. Her channel, Simply_kenna is so full of positivity. Her fashion is lovely and she does such good makeup tutorials. McKenna is a Buddhist, and she teaches about some of her beliefs as well. I really think you guys should check her channel out, but you might become addicted!

Another youtuber that I’ve really enjoyed watching is Gabriella Lindley. I love both of her channels but my favourite recently has been her blogs on Planet Gabb. She hasn’t updated one in a few days and I’m on the edge of my seat waiting for it!

My favourite albums this month have been Dangerous Woman by Ariana Grande, and Wiped Out by The Neighbourhood. You guys know I am the biggest Ariana grande fan, and when the album was released I fell in love! Right now I’m listening to Let Me Love You. My favourite are Leave Me Lonely and Knew Better/Forever Boy. On The Neighbourhoods new album my favourites are Daddy Issues and Baby Came Home 2/ Valetines. I definately recommend checking these albums out as they are so so good!

Have a lovely day,

What I Bought This Weekend | EG

Once again, here we are. A Sunday evening! How quick are these weeks going? This weekend I’ve been lucky enough to go shopping a couple of times and buy some things that have been on my Wishlist for months.

  
First up is this top. It’s so pretty! I bought it from new look for only £5 in the sale. I had been looking at this top for a while, and I was so glad when I saw this in the sale! I picked this up in a size 12 even though, usually I’m in a size 8/10 as it does come up pretty small. It has short sleeves and is cropped with sort of frilly edging. Also, I repurchased the Garnier Micellar Water for the third time, as my others have ran out.

  
The next thing I got is mom jeans! I have been wanting these for so long, but being so tall, they were never in my size. Luckily, I finally managed to get them in my size, on the last chance to buy rack! After seeing these on so many blogs I decided to buy them and I really recommend them! They’re so comfy and the fact that they’re high waisted means that they’ll look really pretty with crop tops in spring and summer.

  
The next thing I got is this top, which I’m actually wearing right now. At first, I tried it on in the white, with red and navy stripes. I loved it but wasn’t sure whether to buy it, until I found it in the grey! Grey is my favourite colour to wear and this top is so cute and relaxed. I wore it today with my lace halterneck and Jamie jeans with superstars and it looked really relaxed, but still cute.

  
The last thing is the iPhone 6! I honestly can’t believe I actually own it. My contract was due an upgrade and I was finally able to get the 6! I decided to get it in silver ( mostly so it will match my outfits). I also have this marble case from h and m which was around £5.99.

Have you guys bought anything new this week?

Are there any posts you’d love me to do?

Have a lovely day!

Wish List | EG

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you all have a lovely day! Today I have my wish list for you, which I’m excited to show you because there are some really lovely things in there.

                
Tarte Amazonian Clay Palette

First of all, I saw this gorgeous eyeshadow palette from tarte. I’m not sure where I first saw this palette, but when I did I fell in love with it. The colours are really versatile and there are so many you could match together. The price of this palette depends on where you buy it from. On QVC it is around £32.

Topshop Moto Cord Jacket

This jacket is gorgeous! It’s a champagne kind of colour, which is good because it’s neautral and would go with so many outfits. This is actually in the sale for £10!! Yes that is true! Sadly, this is out of stock so I’m scouring the Internet to find one!

Topshop Mom Jeans

When I went to Outfit recently I tried these jeans on and they were so comfortable and flattering. They are meant to be cropped, so I would get them in a longer length. Usually I would be leg 34, but I would get leg 36 so they would be longer. These jeans would be great for summer because they are not super tight, and would look great with a cropped top or a halterneck.

Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipstick in Chihuahua

This lipstick is so pretty! I’ve seen these floating around Instagram so many times and I love this shade. It is a pinky brown colour and would look great with a neutral eyeshadow. For £16, I do think you’re getting a good product and I think it is a reasonable price for a too faced product, especially one with such great reviews.

Have you guys got any wishes?

Have a lovely day! ( and Easter! )

topshop top picks | EG♡

I’ve been scrolling through topshop and found so many nice things lately. These are a few of my favourite things.

  
Scarf print sundress- £42

Mom jeans- £40

Floral dress- £90

Embroidered mom shorts- £32

I’ve loved this dress ever since I saw it on Tanya Burrs channel. I think it’d be really cute in summer or even with black tights and a jacket. I’d really like some mom jeans and these ones are so nice! I prefer wearing dark jeans as light ones really don’t suit me. I saw the black version of this dress on Zoellas channel. When I saw the price I couldn’t believe it. It’s so pretty though. I prefer the lighter version just because black doesn’t really doesn’t suit my skin tone as I’m quite pale- it just drowns me out even more. These mom shorts are the prettiest things ever! I literally want to buy them right now ( but I have no money, forever wishing ). They have pink roses on the sides and a few rips in them. They’d go with everything, I really really like them ( if you couldn’t already tell )

Have a lovely day! ( even though it’s already night time here )
