Boujee on a Budget

Happy Thursday everyone!

I am really watching what I spend lately and when I say lately, I have been for quite a long time!

1: Because I have a growing boy that needs new clothes more than me!

2: Because I am planning to go on two holidays next year and I’m only gonna do that by being sensible this year!

That being said I decided to have a mooch around Instagram and see what websites are coming through with some prestige pieces that won’t break the bank!

So let’s get to it!…

DIY: Body Lava 🤩

Hey everyone!

If you’re anything like me, then you love a highlighter, and you’d also love a body lava if you could afford one 😒!

So I came across such a simple hack on the internet that I just had to try it for myself! (Would love to insert credit here but I saw the video on Facebook and can’t seem to find it again!) So today I’m going to show you how to create your very own two ingredient body lava!

First you will need a small container, it doesn’t really matter what you use for this part it’s just down to preference! I used an old perfume refill bottle for mine!

I filled this bottle with my main ingredient: Baby Oil!

Once I was happy, I picked out a highlighter powder that I wouldn’t mind scraping a little, because this is what you will be adding to your baby oil! I chose my beaut Primark Highlighter palette!

I used the shade glimmer first as you can see by the scrapes haha! I also used the rest of the shades but in a much smaller quantity!

When you’ve finished your scraping, carefully add the mix to your container!

Then SHAKE IT LIKE A POLAROID PIC BOO!

And you should end up with something that looks like this:

How much highlight and what shades you use are completely down to you, it’s your lava so play around with it and see what you think!

My advice would be to start off with a smaller amount of highlight powder, mix it with the oil and then add more until you are happy with the glow it produces!

Here is a video of me pouring it on my skin 😍!

I am in love!

Makeup Monday: Glam On Full

Heyyyyy blogger beauties 😍!

Today is MONDAY and it’s one of my favourite days because I get to upload another makeup look! I wanted to go full glam, in a royal sophisticated kind of way… So the colour ‘royal blue’ seemed to be the obvious choice.

What do you think? Personally I really like this look, and I think the colours fit really nicely with my hair.

I also tried a few curls in my hair to see how that would change my appearance as a whole,

I really like both to be honest with you!

I realised I’m normally quite plain and nude in the lip department but I thought the blues deserved a strong colour to go with them so I went with a deeper plum shade.

I’m 100% planning to re-do my makeup exactly like this when I have a fancy meal or ball to go to.

I have been contemplating starting a YouTube channel for a while now and was wondering what you guys thought of the idea? Would you like seeing step by step videos on how to create these looks?

Could you bare to listen to my Birmingham accent 😅!

I’d love to hear from you so let me know your thoughts in the comments below!

Life Update, and My Makeup of The Day!

Good Evening!

How has your day been? I had a lovely afternoon in Birmingham town centre with my family on what was a fine sunny day, which included lunch so you know, life is good!

We then met up with some more of my family to have a pink gin in a pretty beer garden!

I have been trying to take a more positive and thoughtful approach to life recently and in light of this approach I have decided to have a go at completing my psychology degree! So providing student finance let’s me carry on, I will be proceeding with that in October!

I went kinda full glam today with my makeup and I was really happy with the look, although the heat made it feel a bit heavy on my face,

So if the sun is shining tomorrow, I’ll be having a makeup free day and taking in some of those rays 😻!

I’m not sure if you guys are interested in these kinds of posts from me so I’d love some feedback!

Let me know what you’ve been up to recently, or ways that you keep positive vibes flowing!

Fashion Friday: Badd

Yeah I legit called this outfit bad, don’t care what you think this outfit makes me feel bo$$ so I thought I would just go for it!

So one great thing about this outfit is that it is comfy as hell and still manages to be stylish so that’s got 10/10 right off the bat.

Another great thing about the crop and joggers is that it came in at under £20 at Boohoo

I am loving all the different camo shades you can find at the moment because I feel like the typical khaki shades have had their day to be honest.

This is the first time I’ve worn joggers for style and I really like the look to be honest!

Hope you like it! I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below! 💕

Makeup Monday: White Liner, a Beauty first!🤩

Good Morning! Happy Monday to you all!

I am excited about this post. I am reallllllly excited, because I feel like I have stepped out of my comfort zone with my makeup and done something a little different!

I did a makeup haul recently and I was on the hunt for one item in particular. White Eyeliner. And indeed I found a White Liquid Liner in Superdrug for an amazing £3… I mean what a price.

I am a black liner gal through and through. So white was a whole lot different to what I’m used to but I am so happy with my results!

I’m literally in love with this look. It’s my favourite to date. In terms of application I would say you have to go over the white a lot more than you do with black, this could possibly be to do with the price.

Do you like the little dots I put on my nose? I feel like they add a slightly boho touch.

I think the lip colour fits really well with the look as a whole, using my Primark Liquid Lip Kit, again £3.

I actually felt a little self conscious going out like this, mainly because you don’t see many people out and about rocking the white liner. But I did it anyway, and I actually got so many compliments! Lots of people said I looked really pretty! Which was really nice because generally I wouldn’t class myself as pretty.
