New Hair, New Me

Hey Huns!
So back about a month ago I took the plunge and got my hair chopped. 

And honestly, it's been one of the best decisions I've ever made.

Originally, my hair was pretty long (as you can see in the picture). I walked into my regular hairdressers on Halloween, sat down in the chair and told my regular hairdresser what I wanted. Her reaction was hilarious.
"Are you SURE?"
Of course I answered with yes, even though at this point I don't think I actually was sure.

The hairdresser tied my hair in a pony tail and chopped off the awful-barely-ombre ends of my hair. It was weird seeing it all gone, yet refreshing. 

The next part of what happened was the usual: wash, blow dry and blunt trimming at the ends like I asked for. When it was all done, I felt like a brand new person.

My friends were absolutely shocked because I didn't tell them. And to be honest, I was sort of shocked every time I caught my reflection. 
After (my hair is a bit past the shoulder but my head is to the side so it looks longer in this photo. Also, this was my Halloween makeup, what do you think?)

So what's the point of this post?
Well, I just want to say that if you're thinking of getting your hair cut short, do it! My hair now feels healthier, is easier to handle and is quicker in the mornings and I feel more mature and confident with my hair like this.
I hope you enjoyed this post!

London Beauty Haul


Hey huns!
So over the first weekend of the mid term, I went to London to visit family. While there, I did a HELL of a lot of shopping (how could I not?) and I thought I would just share the beauty bits and bobs that I picked up.

The first thing I picked up were these Tanya Burr eyelashes in 'Pretty Lady'. I didn't even intend on buying these, and when I bought them was actually the first day that they were releases! 

I didn't really know where I was going to wear them, but I might actually be going to my school debs after party, so I'll definitely wear them then!

I also went to Kiko, and I just had to buy this lipstick. 

In case you haven't realised, it's black.

I love Kiko lipsticks in general, and I've been wanting a black one for quite some time! The pigmentation is beautiful, it has great durability and it's easy to take off which is a plus as it doesn't stain! I wore this on Halloween and it worked out great!

I also picked up a Kiss Balm from Kiko. The packaging is uber cute and it has just the slightest hint of pink when I wear it. Perfect for school!

I also bought a new mascara as I was in dire need of getting one. This one is The Falsies Flared mascara by Maybelline and so far I'm loving it!

(Excuse the weird hand pose)
I also picked up a black Essie nail polish in 'Luxedo'. Essie nail polishes never fail to disappoint and I can't wait to wear this during winter!

I also took a trip to MAC, where I got my makeup done. The lady recommended this shade which is NW13. I love it! It stays on all day and is a perfect match for my skin tone.

I also picked up a MAC lipstick in 'Impassioned'. I love this colour and have worn it almost every single day since I bought it!

I also got a mineralize powder to go with the foundation. I love this one because the packaging (as usual) is so sleek and there's a mirror on the inside which is perfect for taking on the go!

I hope you enjoyed this little beauty haul and I shall speak to you in my next blogpost!

An Autumn OOTD

Hey huns! 
So I know I haven't blogged in a long time, but today I'm back with an OOTD!

The photos were taken a day before I had my hair cut, so that is why my hair is still long!

Mom Jeans: River Island
Turtleneck: Stolen from my mothers closet
(sorry mom)

For this day, I was just going to my friends house to watch movies. I thought this outfit was appropriate because it was cosy, comfortable and felt at least a bit more dressed up than normal!

I hope you enjoyed this post! I hope to make more outfit posts like this in the coming weeks.

Even though we're back to school again, it just means we are one  step closer to Christmas! I can't wait to start blogging for Christmas and already I've started planning what posts I am going to do!
