Something you didn’t know about me!

Good Evening!

So Today I decided to tell you all a little bit more about me! Well, one thing in particular and it is that a few years ago now I got my first sewing machine, and I taught myself how to sew clothing!

Now I am nowhere near perfect and I definitely have a lot more to learn, but recently I unboxed some of my old materials and thought I would give it another go!

This is what I made…

This is a pastel purple two piece consisting of a halter neck bralet and a mini skirt.

Like I mentioned, I haven’t used my sewing machine for a few years now so I was unsure as to whether I would make anything of substance, but I was actually really chuffed with myself!

What do you think?

I feel like this looks like a legitimate outfit so I am pretty buzzing to be honest 😁!

Would you guys be interested in seeing more of my creations? Because if you are let me know! I would love to show more 🤓!

Thank you to all of my new followers and for all of my returning followers, you mean so much to me!

Good Night and Lots of 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!

How to dress for your body type…

I just saw this on twitter and thought it was such a bomb explanation that I had to blog it!

Rock what you want, when you want, with CONFIDENCE! It’s not shameful to feel sexy or beautiful it’s 2018 people! Love yourself and appreciate what you have!

Each year women are becoming more empowered to be bo$$ babes and I would like that wheel to keep rolling please!

Don’t let anyone tell you you don’t have the body for a certain look, or that you should contain your curves, or be a little less conservative or be less muscular- The list goes on.

Don’t be anything but you! You deserve to love yourself and express yourself the way you see fit.

Hope this made some of you smile!

Let me know your thoughts in the comments! I love hearing from you guys!

Lots of Love

Fashion Friday: Lemon Lovin’ 🍋

Good evening fine people!

It is Friday! Which means we will be talking about FASHION!

I went on a shopping trip with my little family and although we went to re-stock some kids clothes for my little man, I saw the most beautiful lemon two piece in River Island and just had to try it on!

Totally in love 😍! I paired it with a pretty grey crop that I tied at the back to give a more fitted style.

I never wear yellow and I am seriously reconsidering all of my life choices at this point because WHY NOT! Peep that cheek highlight too!

I’ve even gone to the trouble of finding the whole outfit on the website:

Trousers | Blazer | Tee

I hope you liked today’s look, I think it’s my favourite so far!

If you enjoyed this post and you’re not following already, DO IT! It seriously brings so much joy to my life 😍!

Beauty Q+A With one of my followers! – The Glow Medic

Good Morning beautiful people! I hope you’re having a lovely day so far, thank you for clicking this post!

I love doing shoutouts on my page but I like to switch it up and keep it interesting so today I will be blogging a Beauty Q+A With the beautiful and talented blogger The Glow Medic

Her Makeup reviews are bomb at hell and her photographs are beautiful too as you can see below:

So I thought she would be the perfect person to select for this post! Let’s get to it!…

1) What is your favourite beauty brand and why?

My favourite beauty brand would be ColourPop Cosmetics- their product launches are the ones that really grab my attention and excite me, plus all their products are really great quality at an extremely affordable price.

2) What piece of makeup couldn’t you live without? 

I couldn’t live without an eyebrow pencil. I can leave the house without foundation/concealer no problem, but you know I’m having a rough day if I haven’t even got my brows on!

3) Smokey eye or pop of colour?

I don’t wear eyeshadow on a regular basis so I always like to take the time to do a bright or unusual colour combo when I can- life’s too short for boring eyeshadow.

4) Your go-to lipstick shade and why?

This is very difficult for me because a mother loves all of her children equally, but my favourite lipstick would be the Huda Beauty liquid lipstick in the shade ‘Bombshell’- it goes with everything.

5) What made you start a beauty blog?

I developed a love of makeup when I first started studying medicine. Makeup was a way to keep a creative passion on the side, a sort of escape, from the challenges and hard work of a medical degree. I started my blog last year after the end of my 3rd year at uni, a time when I transferred from a Malaysian uni to Edinburgh. I thought it would be good to start my blog at the beginning of this new chapter in my life.

6) Who is your beauty inspiration?

Pat McGrath. She is not only an inspirational WOC but she’s probably the most influential makeup artist of the past decade, with makeup looks that are more like works of modern art!

7) Blush or Bronzer?

Bronzer for sure! I may live in Edinburgh, but I like to pretend I live on a beach in Bali.

8) How long does i take you to do a full glam look?

30-45 mins. I was (fashionably) late to a uni medics’ ball recently because of how long I can take.

9) Top makeup tip?

Be smart when buying your makeup. Don’t just assume that the most expensive/well-known brands are the best, or buy things just because they’re hyped-up, read/watch reviews from people of a similar skin type/tone to you, test it out and form your own opinions.

10) Go-to eyeshadow palette?

The Becca Cosmetics Ombre Rouge eyeshadow palette, as it has all the neutral mattes you’d ever need. This, plus a ColourPop Cosmetics Super Shock eyeshadow = the easiest eyeshadow look ever.

11) How would you describe your makeup style?

GLAM GLAM GLAM. I did the makeup for a uni play recently and I was banned from using glitter on the cast members as it was ‘too glam’. The horror!

Yaaaaas! Absolutely loved all of these answers! I totally agree with not being drawn into the hype of extremely expensive brands because you can find some amazing alternatives in drug stores!

Thank you for doing my beauty Q+A Iman! I really enjoyed writing the questions and reading your answers!
