New Shoes and Skin Essentials

 Last week i finally found the shoes i have been dying to get my hands on! I spotted them in New Look for £14/£15 which is a fair price i think as i've already worn them half to death! They seem to be the only shoes i wear anymore whether im shopping, meeting up with friends or just for any general shoe related task, they are my go to shoes! They rubbed slightly at first, as you would expect with any new shoes, but now they are perfectly comfy to wear with bear feet and they just go with EVERYTHING! I would definitely recommend buying a pair if your at a loss of what shoe you want this summer.
 I also picked up a few other things last week, my favorite was the St. Ives Naturally Clear Apricot Scrub, i got the 'Blemish Fighting' one. I use it to wash and cleanse my face every morning and night, it leaves my skin feeling wonderfully smooth and refreshed and of course smells amazing!
 I wanted to try out some new tanning moisturizer as this year i am trying to avoid the oh-so charming paleness, without turning myself either streaky or orange and my friend recommended this to me, the Garneier Summer Body Moisturising Lotion. If you dont like using moisturisers with a strong smell then i would say that this isn't for you. But i seem to be loving the apricot smell right now and it gives a lovely glow. I've always loved Garnier products and i got this in the 'Deep sun-kissed look' shade since it was the darkest they had and the lighter ones never seem to do much (even to the palest of us).

 I hope you enjoyed this short post and that you are coping with our utterly depressing lack of sunshine (if you live in England that is) at the minute by keeping your tan looking brilliant any way you can! I can't wait to fly off to sunny Spain next Saturday!!

Prom Night

So last Friday night, I had my Prom. It was honestly a fantastic night and I would love so much to do it all over again! It was sad realizing that this would be the last time everybody from my school would all find ourselves together seeing as we are starting different colleges this September. But all the same, we had to leave at some point, and this was a great way of saying goodbye to our Secondary School years!
I thought I would show you guys a few pictures from the night, hope you enjoy!

 After about four months of frantically going up and down the country looking for that perfect dress (literally, i went to Manchester, Bolton, Bournemouth, Portsmouth, Oxford, London...) i decided to look online.
My friend told me about a website called Dresses Ok and i automatically found the dress of my dreams! I have to say that i had been trying to avoid buying offline as there's always the risk someone may have ordered your dress and you have no way of knowing or that it may not come in time! However i'm so glad i did, it needed a few readjustments but after that it fitted amazingly! (make sure you fill in the order forms super carefullly!)

As for nails, hair and makeup....
My makeup was done by my beautiful and talented best friend Shannon, to see her blog click here. You can also watch a video of my makeup being done by shannon along with a few of our other friends here on her vlog channel.
I bought some fake acrylic nails from Boots for around £5. All you had to do was glue them on and i loved having long nails for once!
Me and my mumma did my hair. Its very simply straightened and pulled back into a bun and held in place by hair grips. Then a few side bits were pulled down and curled for a messier effect.

hope everyone had a magical Prom night too!
