Fashion Friday: Orange ๐ŸŠ

Good Morning everyone! Hello to my new followers, and welcome back if you’re returning!

Today is Fashion Friday and I wanted you to bring the colour to this one. One I don’t often wear at that!

Orange, I know it’s a pretty bold statement but there was something cool about putting a blazer on over a dress!

Both of these items are from River Island

Blazer: Click Here

These colours just scream holiday, and it kinda makes me sad because I’m not going abroad this year ๐Ÿ˜ญ!

I love the tassel detail on the dress, and of course the asymmetric design adds more interest to the overall look. The blazer adds a touch of sophistication and means that you could easily wear this outfit for an evening meal without getting too cold!

What do you think? I would love to hear from you so let me know in the comments below!

Have a wonderful day!

Lots of Love

Makeup Monday: White Liner, a Beauty first!๐Ÿคฉ

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 ยฃ3… 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 ยฃ3.

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.

Makeup of the day: R A I N B O W

I really wanted to step outside of my comfort zone today and do something a little bit creative with my makeup!

I actually LOVE it! I really didn’t expect to. It’s kinda make me laugh because I’m doing the weekly food shop with my Husband and son when he gets home from work and I’m legit going like this ๐Ÿ˜‚!

Too glam to give a damn that’s what I say!

I spent quite a lot of time on this one, blending each colour. From left to right there’s warm yellow, baby pink, darker pink, deep orange, and blue! I finished off with some liner and lashes for DRAMA. I think I accomplished what I set out to do, which is always a great feeling!

What do you think of this look? And would you ever rock multicoloured eyeshadow?

REVIEW: The Selfie Ring

I received this selfie ring as a present for Christmas and I’ve got to say it has done wonders for the quality of my selfies!

Here’s the link!

Basically it’s a circular clip that you attach to your phone when you’re taking a selfie! The ring of light illuminates your face and eyes, leaving you looking flawless! Here’s an example of what it looks like attached:

For the price of ยฃ7.59 I would class this as a must have for any blogger that’s into doing makeup! It really helps you to achieve professional looking photographs with your smart phone! Here’s a couple of examples from myself, both taken on my iPhone!

I can’t rave about this item enough! It’s perfect for those gloomy days where there’s no sign of the sun, and if the sun is shining it enhances the photograph even further!

Have you ever seen one of these before? I’ve seen the big commercial ones that the rich bloggers use but I hadn’t seen a mini version until I received one for myself.

3 Ways to stay motivated with blogging!

Hey there people!

For a few weeks now I have been focusing on things that make me happy in life. While doing this I realised that I would like to pursue my dream of being a blogger/instagram influencer.

I am on a roll with consistently blogging and producing content at a good rate on my Instagram page (@loleihm), so I wanted to share some of the things that help me to stay on the ball!

1: If you’re feeling de-motivated, have a shower.

If you wake up and immediately feel like you just want to laze around all day doing nothing but eating snacks and binge watching Netflix, have a shower! Wash your hair, pamper yourself and have a think about your blog topic for today… when you’re done, get dressed! When you do these things, you will feel fresh and ready to have a productive day! When I feel fresh and ready I get a lot more done. When I stay in my pyjamas all day it seems that I stay in sleep mode for the entirety of it, and if you have a busy schedule, every bit of free time counts!

2: Take advantage when you’re being productive!

If you are on a roll one morning and you’ve done your makeup, and you’ve picked your outfit of the day to blog about for example, don’t stop there! Take photos of your outfit, then change it, is there another style you want to blog about in the near future? Put it on and get the evidence so that when you have a busy day, you have your content ready to go! If you did your makeup, what products did you use? Is there a product you’d like to review? If so, get the evidence! This means that you already have multiple things to blog about from one morning and you have all the photographs to prove it. Then if you do have a pyjama day, you can still type away on your phone and get that blog posted!

3: Remember the reasons why you started!

When you’re feeling down In the dumps and you’re not getting the followers or readership you wanted, at the rate you expected, DO NOT QUIT! Remember the reasons why you started and focus on those! Make a list of reasons why you love blogging and remember that if you are consistent and pour genuine passion into your blog topic you will slowly build up a following of like minded people!

So! Give it a go and let me know what you think in the comments below!
