I bought this long shirt quite a while ago, and I cannot tell you how excited I am to finally have the weather to wear this in! This was shot a couple of weeks back when I first came back up to London, and although it was still a bit chilly I still felt super cool floating around in this shirt. Apologies for the lack of details or make up (lol) but this was just a quick walk in Regent's Park and a test run for outfit posts on my camera! I'm really impressed with how well they've turned out, although regrettably it does mean you can see how band my hair was looking .... 

Anywho, I hope you like the look and I'm now so close to being done with my exams, hopefully I'll be able to post a lot more regularly soon (famous last words) as I've got some great ideas for summer outfits ready to go! I just need some sun to wear them in!
Also aren't all these trees so gorgeous? I love that something like this can still exist within central London.

Shirt: The Ragged Priest (I think it may be gone now? Bought off ASOS)

MAC - Lightscapades

Before I bough this highlighter, I'd heard quite a lot about it. My friend Sam and I had discussed it and how beautiful it was and how pretty it looked and also how it nearly always seemed to be out of stock for this very reason. So when I went into the MAC store at Covent Garden and tentatively asked if they had it in stock, the shop assistant gave a  very worried look, and said that it was unlikely but she would have a look for me. And look at that, I struck lucky and she came back with a handful that were lurking in the store room! In the pot it looks, to me, a bit like what the surface of a gas planet looks like. There's so many colours in there, from gold, to bronze to a silvery lilac colour, so it looks a bit daunting to first put on. Lightscapade is a mineralize skinfinish highlighter, so it's all shimmery and very light on the skin.

I just use this as a normal highlighter, and blend on on the top of my cheeks, inner corner of the eyes and down my nose etc, but what I really like about this is that it's subtle enough that it just blends really easily and adds an extra dimension to everything. There's no real specific colour, it's almost like a shimmer, when I place my finger to get a denser colour it's almost opalescent with all the colours that are visible! On the skin it comes out with the tiniest hint of palest pink, with lots of subtle sparkles that really just lift and highlight so well without being like you're covered in glitter. Honestly, what more could you want from a highlighter! This also means I think it would suit absolutely everybody, whether you're wearing it quite subtly for the highlight or quite heavily for the glow that it can give!

If sparkles really aren't your style, then I've also heard that Soft & Gentle from the same collection is also a brilliant highlighter for all skin tones too and it's definitely something that I would love to look into when I have more spending money! (sigh)

Thanks for reading!

Where I've Been

Well, it's definitely been a while since I've last sat down to write something. Firstly, I'm pretty bummed I couldn't keep up my consistent blogging, but April was a pretty hectic month for me as there was quite a lot of social things happening as I was back at home and I also then had a 10 day field trip that meant I had no access to a computer at all. Basically I should have thought ahead and gave myself some time to schedule but revision got the best of me there too and I couldn't seem to find myself the time to just sit on a computer and sort out some photos!
However I have some news, in that I got a brand new camera over the holidays so I'm really excited to start using that in blog posts, especially now after I feel more energised about my blog after the short break and I'm super excited for the summer fashion to come in (I've already ordered some clothes from some spare money I had from last term!). I definitely want to try and find more of a niche with what I am doing, and I'm really trying to push myself fashion wise to become more interesting with what I post instead of just repeating outfits and reusing the same clothes (obvs this will happen though as some items I love too much).
Anyway, as I don't really have a proper blog post for this, I just wanted to explain where I was with this blog and that I really want to put more effort in, especially over summer! I'm hoping to do some collabs with other bloggers and I know I keep saying it but I would like to start filming!
So, that's it from me, have a picture of my cat (from my new camera!) so this isn't too text heavy!
Thanks for reading, and please come back for a proper post tomorrow!
