My First Colour Pop Order 😻

Good Morning everyone and happy Friday!!!

I received an order I have been eagerly anticipating yesterday and that was my first ever Colour Pop order.

I have been searching for a good liquid concealer for ages now and I never seem to find a shade light enough to use as a highlight! So when CP blew up on the gram with this photograph:

I was super excited, because there is a shade there that is 100% light enough for me!

I went with shade Fair 02, and I also added Fair 00 to my basket and this is because I already have a concealer that is way too dark for me so I plan to lighten it up with the 00 shade 😏! At $6 per shade how could I say no!

Like I wasn’t happy enough, when I clicked on my basket I realised there was something else there, at first I was like huh better delete that because I ain’t paying for something extra… Then I looked at the price and realised it was free!

I just so happened to make my first order while CP was celebrating its 4th birthday and I got this gorgeous creamy eyeshadow too for absolutely nothing!

It doesn’t even end there because I got $5 off my first order because I signed up to their mailing list, I meannnn 🤩. In total I paid around $10 for my items including shipping to the UK

The outside of the box simply said ‘Made in LA’ but the inside of the box really bought the partayyy!

I am so impressed with the whole service!

I will do a more detailed review of the concealers but just look at the shimmer on the shadow…

Can’t wait to use them all properly! I am really impressed with my first overseas shipment of makeup!

I hope you enjoyed today’s post guys! Let me know your thoughts on Colour Pop and what I should order next time!

Lots of Love

Don’t let women tell you how to be a woman today.

In current times I feel that the spotlight is on women. We have been fighting for equality probably since the beginning of humanity!

But what I find most interesting is how women make women feel about being female in society today.

This is my perspective, it is somewhat subjective to my experiences. The way I see things may not be the way you see things and you may have some points to counter what I say. Well great I’m open to it. So here goes.

Why is it that today. Yesterday, and probably tomorrow, that I feel women look down on me when I say I would rather be a stay at home mom. I work a part time job by the way so I’m not currently doing as I’d wish BECAUSE BILLS. But why do women feel the need to force their fellow ladies to work. With utterings such as ‘women fought for their right to work’. Yes they did and I commend them. Although in my opinion they fought for the choice to work. Which is a polite way of saying, that if a woman wants to work, she can work. If a woman wants to be a stay at home mom, she can. Get over it.

Why is it that some women who are stay at home mothers look down on women who work? Yet commend the father for doing 72 hours per week. Did you know ladies that a fathers parental role is equally important to the child as yours? And that’s been quantified people.

Why is it that women who choose not to be mothers are selfish? I’d rather a woman make the decision not to have a child if she feels she does not want to be a mother!

Why is it that women who show more flesh are not empowered ? Of course they are. So are women who wear a suit to work. So are women who are doing the washing up in their own home right now. So are women who wear makeup. SO ARE WOMEN WHO DON’T. Because a woman is empowered when she feels that she is. Isn’t being controlled by what other women think just a little bit counter productive?

What is the point in equality amongst men and women if women do not stop to reflect on how they treat eachother.

I feel most judgement on females comes from females. I hear comments like this all the time falling from the mouths of women: “she looks like a boy her hair is short” “She’s not a woman she’s flat chested” “A real woman isn’t just skin and bones” “She’s too muscly, no way is she a woman”… HOLD UP SALLY, I have some news for you! They are ALL women.

What I am trying to say in all this is that we should be raising each other up. Admiring our individual strengths. There isn’t a rule book on how to be a woman we just are. If you are kind hearted then you are wonderful. Empower yourself the way you see fit and don’t let opinion dictate your life.

Don’t let other women tell you how to be a woman today.

10 points to whoever counts how many times I say ‘woman’ in this piece 😂! I hope you enjoyed reading my rant! Let me know what you think!

Fashion Finds 02: Boot camp at 8, club at 9!

Bodysuit – £18

Trousers – £45

Shoes – £28

Hey heyyyyy! Looks like I’m back at it again with another fashion finds post! Did you like the title haha (I did clearly!)

I am literally loving all of the denim camo jeans I am seeing lately! Especially the non khaki versions, they are fresh and fierce! There is something so awesome about pairing trousers like this with shoes like that! It just screams confidence! I decided to keep the accompanying bodysuit pretty simple as I wanted to balance out the trousers a little. Of course I had to find some nails to compliment all the sass going on in this look! What do you think?

If you liked this post then let me know with a like, comment or follow! Or treat me to the triple if you’re feeling generous!

Valentines Fashion Picks: Dresses

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching! …Don’t you just love, LOVE. And the fashion that comes with it of course?!

I do! But you probably figured that out already!

Why? Because love is one of the most beautiful things in the universe. So if we celebrate being born, we are sure as hell entitled to celebrate love! Am I right? Of course I am!

Deep down inside all of us is the desire to be loved, and to love alike. If you’re in love already, good for you! If you’re not, don’t stress, hey, you could even meet your match this very Valentine’s Day. Or party the night away with your single independent gal pals -it’s your day so do whatever you want with it!

So let’s kick off my valentines fashion picks with…

1: The Belice Dress by House of CB

Need I say more! This dress is tailored to perfection and that is reflected in the price at £129! So if you’re planning a sophisticated night out somewhere special, this is the dress for you!

2: The Bonnie Dress from Tigermist

This dress screams passion! The colour of love and the deep lacy plunge make this dress drop dead gorgeous 😍! All the way from Australia this dress will set you back $40 reduced from $89 as it’s on offer as we speak!

3: The Black Lace Fishtail Dress From Missguided

This dress screams classic LBD featuring a classy twist with the fish tail! I’m literally in love with this dress! I’m thinking cocktails in a high rise?.. A girl can dream!
