NOTD – Nail Paint In Cyan Blue (294) By Barry M Review

I wasn’t very interested in painting my nails until I got into secondary school when it was key to always have brightly coloured and vibrant nails, I never really took an interest in Barry M until then and I didn’t really like the brand to start with as I thought it was too runny and didn’t dry quick enough but now years later I am happily buying Barry M nail varnishes with a smile on my face because I love the colours and types! 🙂

So the other week I brought another Barry M nail varnish because I was complaining that I didn’t have any summer colours in my nail varnish collection! So I went and I brought cyan blue which is a light blue but not too light that it turns into a pastel blue.

I love this colour because it is so light and summery, I like blues as well which is probably why I picked it 🙂

Summer Favourite: Festival/Boho

This is one of my favourite trends that is making its comeback this Summer and I love it! I really love the laid back relaxed festival boho look – What I really love about this look is that it can be interpreted in different ways and people can make it what they want it to be, it has so much room for adventure and bravery with regards to new outfits and such which makes it a really great look that anyone can pull off, even if you’re not going to a festival!

So I put together a little collaboration of all the sort of things that would/could make a great boho or festival look! Enjoy 🙂

Cultural Fashion From Around The World Appreciation

So I was thinking how much the media only really ever concentrates on Western style and fashion when in fact there are some amazingly beautiful cultural pieces from around the world that I think should be appreciated more and deserve the time to be on my post.

In many different countries there are special or religious pieces of clothing that have a significant meaning behind them and in some countries they dress in certain pieces of clothing as part of their cultural identity which I believe we should see more with regards to fashion instead of it just being Western dominated, so without further ado here is my little blog post on some beautiful cultural fashion I found on the internet 🙂 I found some of these great photo’s from a really lovely blog called http://universalbeauty.tumblr.com/ which I recommend taking a look at as well!

I love all these pieces of clothing featured in these photos, each item is special or beautiful in many ways and I love the colourful and pretty designs as well – Hope you like them tool! 🙂

Sunday Wishlist!

So I  decided that it was long overdue and  I should do a blog post about some items that are on my wishlist that I really want and share it with you all! 🙂 So let it begin…

large (7)   tumblr_miitv1N6IT1rwqa2fo1_400_large   tumblr_mer1qwwfkW1qc31qto1_250_large   img-thing (1)  large (4)

I really want to get: 

  1. A cute little satchel or backpack with a nice design because it is very summery, I already have a black and white patterned one similar to the pictured one but another wouldn’t hurt! I love satchels but sometimes backpacks are cuter and more convenient.
  2. Some Aztec patterned clothing because this Summer Aztec is a very hot and popular trend 🙂
  3. I’d like to find some really beautiful headbands, I personally love headbands Summer or winter and I think they look really pretty! The ones I am specifically wishing for are something like Tribal/Native American/Festival or Boho 🙂
  4. Lastly I really would like to buy a long skirt for Summer, perhaps a sheer one in a nice burnt orange or crisp burgundy! 🙂

Hope you enjoyed my little Sunday wishlist! 🙂 (All photo’s from Google & WeHeartIt)

Vintage Clothing? Yes Please! – UpStaged Vintage in Leeds

In the heart of the voluminous and vibrant city of Leeds lies a beautiful shop full to the brim of vintage clothing from the 40’s right through until the late 80’s. I love this shop because of the sense of nostalgia and antique about it! So after emailing they kindly agreed to let me use some of their professional pictures so I could do a review about some of their brilliantly beautiful pieces of clothing! 🙂

I love this American Indian jumper/dress! It’s called the ‘Navaho Design Jumper’ and I love how it looks so inviting and warm, yet comfortable and vintage all at the same time. The patterning is bright and eye catching which is always a great aspect of a popular fashion piece, I also enjoy the thrills at the end and the fact it can be worn both as a dress or a jumper and can be combined with leggings or tights to create the individual look you want.

This next one comes from their 60’s range and is called the ‘Bronze Organza Prom Dress’ and I love it! The patterning and material seem to match perfectly and the colour is perfectly flattering, this is a wonderful choice of dress for anyone looking to accentuate their figure.

Lastly I really do adore this dress it’s so colourful and spontaneous! The dress itself is called ‘Pink and Black Velvet Flock Prom Dress’, personally I love the vibrant patterning and clash of colours that go so well and it goes perfectly with tights and the right pair of shoes! This shop has really impressed me with their vintage and unique range of clothing from the nostalgic era’s and I’m more than pleased to write a review for these fabulous pieces of clothing! I suggest to everyone that they take a look inside their shop before everything sells out! 🙂

4 things I use for clearer skin!

Okay so some point in our lives we will suffer spots, acne or dry flaky skin right? It’s something that can make many girls feel insecure or under pressure to sort out, I too was one of those girls in secondary school that didn’t have spots for a while and I genuinely believed maybe this problem may have missed me out to which I was happy with! However around the age of 16 on wards I started to break out in spots now and then, I didn’t really ever have acne but I did suffer like most with occasional big red spots – you know the ones that you cant hide. Now I want to reassure anyone reading this if they have spots or are worried they will get them that it is perfectly natural and everyone and I mean EVERYONE will get them at some point in their life, so stop worrying 🙂

I was the type of girl and still am that worries over having clear skin, so I thought I would share 4 things that I use for clearer skin and that I love:

  1. No7 Beautiful Skin Purifying Exfoliator for Normal/Dry skin 75ml.
    Now I love this, I got this amazing No7 Exfoliator for a bargain with a voucher I received so it was half price but it’s not that expensive anyway so that’s a plus. One of the reasons I love this is because some exfoliators can be very harsh however the beads in this are small and easy to rub in which helps remove dead skin cells and it’s also meant to make your skin much brighter and healthy.
    I personally think this product is great and when it runs out I definitely plan to buy some more. They do different ones in the No7 range for different skin types as well which is great!
  2. Visibly Clear 2-in-1 Wash and Mask by Neutrogena 150ml.
    I have had this for a while now and the bottle still feels full! I love it because it smells so fresh and it feels nice when you wear it as a mask or just using it for a wash because the mixture is so creamy. I think it’s great because it unclogs pores and helps reduce spots which makes it great that it’s a two in one!
  3. Clearasil Ultra Overnight Wash 150ml. 
    This is a product that I have used endlessly because I find it works, it doesn’t just tell me it’ll reduce my spots size by the morning but it actually does it! This is a winner for them big red spots that you want smaller and less noticeable by tomorrow and I love it because it gets rid of dirt and oil effectively as well and it smells quite pleasant.
  4. Visibly Clear Spot Stress Control 3-in-1 Daily Cleansing Lotion by Neutrogena 200ml.
    My last item on my 4 things I use for clearer skin is this. It’s always handy to have a lotion for when you haven’t got time to exfoliate or wash your face and with this one I love it because it deeply cleanses, reduces excess oil and helps prevent and clear spots. The smell of this though is rather strong and sometimes overpowering but never the less an awesome product that I love.

Well hope you liked my post 🙂 Like/Follow/Add on twitter MaryLouise_G
