OOTDs: Browns

I’m not really a fan of using brown towns in my makeup or apparel but I’ve ended up using quite a few of them in my outfits recently.

For many years, I was super obsessed with leopard print of all different colours and it became quite the staple of mine but over the last few months, I simply lost interest in it. So to rekindle an old flame, I pulled out one of my best leopard print pieces – which is super soft and fits so well, by the way – and wore it out. I’m not sure how I feel about leopard print anymore but I think I’m going to keep this particular dress in my closet just in case I end up loving it again.

So I really loved this outfit and wearing some of my favourite pieces in a style which I’m wearing a lot of at the moment. Y’all probably know I have a tonne of lipstick and though it’s all been worn, a lot of it doesn’t get as used as some others, so I decided to pull out “Saddle” by Lime Crime, which was more brown than I remembered. It’s not my favourite lip colour but wearing it wasn’t a terrible experience. (This is how you know when you have a beauty/fashion blog – when wearing a lipstick is called “an experience.”)

I’m actually worried about what to do with my lipstick. My collection is growing so much that even if I wear lipstick once a day, to wear all the shades I have takes almost a year, but obviously cosmetics are not the greatest hand-me-downs. I’m not sure what I’ll be doing with all the lesser-used shades.

I spent so much money on Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales but I also went back to work this week so that’s a huge bonus. I really hope to be sharing some more outfits and lipsticks with you soon, and I also have some new products that I’d like to review. Until next week!

OOTDs: August 2016

I splurged so much this month that my bank froze my account due to suspicious activity. If that doesn’t tell me I have a problem, I don’t know what does.

Autumn is still nowhere in sight and I’m quite upset about it. My allergies are, as well. I like to stay in tune with nature so this climate change ordeal upsets me greatly. My fingers are crossed that the temperature cools and the leaves change colour within the next few months.

Anyway, I managed to get in two OOTDs in. I’m not going to lie, it feels strange writing about my fashion choices in a manner that suggests it’s my strong suit, something with which I can inspire others. Then again, it’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while. I suppose it’ll have to grow on me.

I almost never wear pencil/bodycon skirts but I have to say I loooved this look. I’m definitely going to be looking more at slim-style skirts in the future.

I loved this look too! I haven’t felt like wearing jewellery in a while so it was nice to bring out my beautiful bat choker.

For the future, I currently have some reviews and DIY projects planned, all of which I’m pretty excited about. Hopefully I’ll conjure up the energy to do all of it but I have my sight set on a post within the next week or two. Stay tuned!
