J'adore Dior

I rarely splash out on expensive make up because I get frightened to actually use it! However, at the airport this year I thought why not?

One of my pricey purchases was a Dior Addict lipstick in shade 773 'red catwalk'.

Above you can see the before and after photos. It's a dark red colour but with a hint of brown which makes it natural yet noticeable!
I love this shade and I love how prominent it makes my lips look, it also has pretty good wearability as you only have to reapply a few times throughout the evening.
I love it! I'm glad I spent that bit extra because for this item, it was worth it.

Anger Management?

Yep. That woman depicts my feelings right this minute. I'm so pissed offffff!
I'm not entirely sure what's wrong with me to be honest, for the last couple of weeks I've got myself into a bad mood that I cannot seem to shake off.
The thing is, I've been home from uni since like May! Therefore I think I've reached my limit of how much of my family I can tolerate. Don't get me wrong, I get on with them really well and I love them dearly....but I need space now please.
I go back to uni in a week (thank GOD) I need my independence back and I need to see Tash and Amy please! These girls are my saviours. And I miss them so much.
This summer has been great but at the same time made me realise that I cannot come home for the whole summer next year, I'll go insane! So I'm definitely putting my Camp America plans in to progress in the next few months.

I'm also really ill at the moment and feel like death which isn't helping my overall shitty mood. Basically.....get me back to Lincoln!

Fabulous in Fur!

Ok, so I have wanted a fur coat since forever. They just ooze glamour. I did own one back in the day when I was about 5 and it was my favourite coat ever! Furry beige with brown bears all over it. Pretty sure I wore it everywhere I went.

Anyway, 15 years later I have finally found a fitting replacement for the bear coat....this beauty from Topsop:

It's £89 and I got it from the Oxford street branch when I was working in London. I absolutely love it and intend to wear it a lot this winter. Let's face it I'm going to need to, it's barely September and the weather's horrible!

My week at Reveal magazine

Sooo..it's been a pretty hectic week for me this past week. I got back from Cyprus on Monday then on Tuesday I was up and ready to catch the train to London at 8 o'clock.

On the first day I was pretty much getting to know everyone and doing odd jobs. I did get asked to write a blog post for the website which I did everyday and I really enjoyed that and it's pretty good to have them to include in my portfolio!

Over the week I got to really like my table, they were all quite young and we could chat really easily. The office was so relaxed and there was no stressing out or shouting (not really anyway). People were always handing out free food and they get sent different things all the time which just go up for grabs!

It was amazing being able to pop into Oxford Street on my lunch break, it made me realise how much I love the city and how much I want a job there in the future.

Journalism was definitely the right choice for me, I've enjoyed all the experience I've had so far and there's lot's more to come!!

To be able to say I've done work experience with a national magazine is an amazing boost. It cost me a lot to get there and back each day, but if you want something, you do it!

Overall it was a great week, I loved it! :D
