Fashion/make-up. It's all about what I'm wearing.

This is kind of old ground I'm covering here. I've done the odd one or two fashion and make-up posts in the past, and they've got the odd comment under them before. But this time I'm combining the two to make a massive jumbo post about the two seperate topics.


It's what I'm wearing when I go out. It can be casual wear (for shopping or eating out) or it can be smarter and more glitzy (for going to the theatre or meeting a celeb).
I like casual clothes most of the time. Because I don't like to be in a suit or tight clothes very much. But then I also hate clothes that are too casual, and make you feel like a slob. Like, I'd never wear a tracksuit ever, to anywhere. Or wear trainers with it. Ok, yes, I do wear comfy trousers, etc. But never go totally casual. And I'd never wear an entirely pink, or green, or orange outfit. That's a bit much.
I love skirts and dresses. But only wear them if I feel like it. It's a mood thing, for me. I will only wear it if I'm feeling happy and it's good weather for it. Except, if I want to look good for an event (book signing, theatre, etc.). When meeting celebs (which I've done a few times) I like to make an effort. It's also something that you'd like to remember, and say to yourself, "Oh, I remember that day/night, I was wearing a lovely glittery dress!". Or whatever it happened to be.

When buying new clothes, you should always try to find things that are suited to you, and what you like to wear. Also, picking clothes that go with your body shape is important too. If you're petite, you should go for things that make you look taller. If you're broad on your shoulders, then it's probably best you balance that part of your body out with wearing something around the hips that is in line with the shoulders. Like a skirt that flares out, or is a puffed-up style. If you have an hour glass figure, then basically you should show that off, preferably with a nice dress, that has a belt put around your waist, and enhances your features.

Sites that I love to buy clothes from are... Boohoo and ASOS. I have bought more from ASOS, but both sites are good. They are so up-to-date on the latest fashion trends, and even have discounted products available, and on ASOS there's a store where you can sell and buy old clothes that you/someone else doesn't want anymore. I haven't used the store bit where you sell/buy things, but I can see that for some people this could be beneficial.


I'm so much more into make-up than I am fashion. It's something you can experiment with, anywhere, anytime. It shows off your personality, and is something people will always notice about you, because people tend to look at your face more than any other part of your whole body.
I'm someone who will wear a full face sometimes, but more often than not I will wear just a few key bits of make-up, and that's enough for me. I like wearing mascara, I like wearing lipgloss, I like wearing lipstick, I like wearing blusher. I also like eye shadow, and eye liner. But basically I'll usually only wear lipgloss/lipstick and mascara. It's far less time consuming. And adds that little something to your overall look. It gives a splash of colour, when you wear lipstick. Especially if it's red, or a deep pink. Even plum lipsticks are good, but maybe better for the autumn/winter months. Although, wear them whenever you like (I do).

Recent purchases... I've bought several new nail polishes lately. They are by Collection, Barry M. and Rimmel London. I've bought a lip balm/tint. I think it's by MUA. I'm not 100% though. I've bought a red lipstick. It's by Rimmel London. And I've bought a super liner, and eye shadow trench, to do a smoky eye look. They are by Loreal Paris.

I love my smoky eye look. I have it on right now. It's so pretty and the colours really complement each other. They are a mix of grey, bronze, light pink and light yellow.

That's all for now. Hope you enjoyed reading about what fashion and make-up things are interesting to me. And the little tips about fashion and your figure types.

Things that have got me interested lately. (Update post.)

There is only so much NOT blogging I can do... until I just can't put it off any longer. And so, here I am. Back in the oldie blogging world. Trying to write a good piece about something interesting. Well, I have a few things to talk about here.

1. Giles Coren did an event yesterday, at Proms at St. Jude's, somewhere in North London, I think (well, am pretty sure). I wanted to go, but it was at a bad time of day, like really bad, for me. And I live in South London, which is like over an hour away from North London. So, it would have been a stretch for me to travel to North London, and get there for around midday. I'm a late night owl, as you may know, and this means I can't get up and get ANYWHERE for midday. Except, for exams, in the past. Like ones I took years ago.

2. I have a cat friend called Billie. She's cute, she's a tabby, she's very friendly (most of the time), and she loves me. She can't get enough of my house. She visits most days, and eats and drinks milk, cat food, fish, meat. She even ate a hula hoop once. Bizarre.

3. I have a Twitter best friend, well, I think she is. @perkins_love is her name, and she's crazy about Sue Perkins, and calls herself a Perkster (as do I). We're tweeting each other most days. And love nothing more than to talk about Sue, or about each others' interests. It's great to have someone who's willing to talk about pretty much anything with you. I hope we can keep the Perkster name going for as long as poss.

4. Ant Payne is the Capital presenter I have to listen to and tweet to. He's seriously good at presenting, which I know I've mentioned in the past. He has a great voice for the radio, and plays awesome tunes! 'Nuff said.

I am about done here. Don't want to stretch this blog post out too far. But I would like to do other posts in the near future. Let me know what you want me to write about more. I'd love to know what you want to read.

Bye for now.
