I’ve been wanting to try out the L’Oréal Paradise Extatic mascara for a while, so I decided to write down my first impressions.
It has a rather large bristle brush/wand, but it’s quite easy to use. The mascara claims to give your lashes both volume and length, and I think it does. It holds the curl too. It’s easy to remove from the skin with a dry cotton bud without ruining the eye shadow, and it’s easy to remove completely with regular make-up remover, which are both huge plusses in my book. It only transferred a little unto my eyelids throughout the day, but it really wasn’t too bad. All in all, I really enjoy this mascara, and it’s probably the best mascara I’ve tried other than my favourite Maybelline The Falsies mascara.
I’ve bought some more shoes. I know, I’ve gone a bit shoe-crazy lately, but it’s a new season, and I’m so inspired when it comes to putting together outfits.
I’ve purchased my first ever pair of Vans. When I saw these online, I fell in love instantly. I’m obsessed with corduroy and my favourite colour is purple, so it’s a match made in shoe heaven.
I’ve also bought a new pair of red boots. I had to get rid of my old pair, because I had worn them to death, but red boots has become an essential in my wardrobe, so I got myself a new pair. These are from Even&Odd, and I love the round toe and the shape of the heel.
Another month has flown by, and we’re now another month closer to December:) The weather has become more autumnal, and I really don’t mind it. I love dressing in autumn, because you can start to layer. There’s also a lot of great textures and colours in autumn fashion, so I’m feeling very inspired when it comes to putting together outfits these days. I do also have a couple of fashion related favourites this month though the might not be particularly autumnal.
Chunky sneakers: Sneakers are my go-to kind of shoes, and these chunky ones from Topshop has been my favourite pair this past month. They’re super comfortable, and I love the slightly odd colour combination.
Trollbeads ring of change: I bought this ring with some money I got as a graduation present (when I got my master’s degree), and I’ve been wearing it a ton. I love that you can costumise it to match your outfit by changing the bead.
Half updo with big hair clip: I featured big hair clips in my July favourites, and I still love them and wear them all the time. This past month, I’ve mainly worn them in this half updo fashion. It’s just such an easy and quick way to do your hair, and it looks cute.
Coco (film): I finally got to watch Disney’s Coco, and I absolutely loved it! I loved the story, the music, and the scenery and colours of the film are gorgeous. I don’t know how Disney does it, but they sure make the best animated films.
Record player: I’d been wanting a record player for a while, and I was very lucky to get one for my birthday last month. I’ve been buying old records at second hand stores, and I’ve been listening to them almost every day, since I got the recond player.
It’s been about a month since my last H&M haul, and it’s time for another one.
This T-shirt was actually a birthday present. I love Friends and I love graphic tees, so this is right up my street.
Even though summer is over, I thought this red, floral, off-shoulder top was really pretty. I probably won’t get much use out of it right now, but I’ll just save for next year.
This, on the other hand, will be very appropriate in a few month’s time. If you didn’t now, I’m obsessed with Christmas jumpers, and I thought about getting this one last year, but some reason I didn’t. Until now. I found it on sale on H&M’s webpage, and I can’t wait to wear it in December.
Remember the pink corduroy trousers, I featured in my last H&M haul? Well, I had to have the brown ones too. They are so ’70s, and I can’t wait to style these.
I’ve also bought a pair of black wide-led trousers. They have a old-fashioned look to them, and they’ll be interesting to style.
Lastly, I bought a black beret. I had a black beret years ago, but I lost it and never found it again, so now a have a new one.
It’s time for the second part of my collective haul; these are some clothes I’ve bought recently.
As you might have noticed, I love second hand shopping. I love the fact that you never know what you’re going to find, and due to the inexpensive prices, you can try out a lot of different styles without breaking the bank. One of my most recent second hand purchases is this pair of trousers. They are very different from anything I own, but I thought they would be fun to style. I’ll be posting an outfit featuring them soon.
When I’m second hand shopping, I’m always looking for blazers. In the store where I also found the trousers, I found this long pinstriped blazer. I love the dark grey colour with the camel pinstripes, and it has shoulder pads which is always a plus.
I’m obsessed with stripy T-shirts, and I couldn’t resist these two from Monki. They both have glitter (how great is that!), and I love the colour schemes. The second T-shirt with the brown and blue stripes will be a perfect match for a pair of trousers that I’ll feature in my next haul.
Lastly, I bought some fun socks. I love colourful, fun socks, and Monki has some of the best ones. I couldn’t leave behind the rainbow glitter ones, and I love the plain coloured ones as well.
I have a collective haul to share with you. These are all things I’ve accumulated over the past month or so. I’ve split up the haul into two parts; this part will be about the shoes and accessories, and the second part will be the clothes.
You might have noticed that I’m very much inspired by ’70s fashion, and when I think of of ’70s sneakers I think of a pair of Nike Classic Cortez. I’ve been wanting a pair of these for quite a while, and not long ago they were on sale on Asos. I wanted the classic colourway made famous by Farrah Fawcett and Forrest Gump, and I can’t wait to style them in a bunch of different ways.
Now that it’s officially autumn, it’s time to wear boots again. It was love at first sight with these checked Monki boots. I wore them for the first time today, and they were really comfortable.
Since I love hats, I’ve been wanting to try out the baker boy hat trend for a long time, and I finally bought not one, but two. I bought a red one and pink one, because they are two of my favourite colours. The pink one is made of corduroy too, which is a bonus. They’re both from H&M.
My obsession with hair clips continues. The pretty pink one was a birthday present from one of my sisters, and the red one with the flowers is from Monki.
I’ve never purchased anything from Zara’s website before, but I found some awesome shoes on sale that I just couldn’t resist.
How incredible are these boots! These are the boots that made me place this order. I’m obsessed with the print and the colours, and I can’t wait to style these.
I also bought another pair of fun boots. These boots has serious ’80s vibes, and I love it!
The last pair of shoes I bought are these platform brogues. I love the aubergine colour of them, and how amazing are the pink ombré soles!
I also bought a couple of stripy T-shirts, because a stripy T-shirt is my go-to kind of top. Both of these T-shirts reminded me of the ’70s, and I think both would look great with flared jeans.
