Wearall, River Island and Primark outfit review

Hey everyone! Gosh I have been so busy lately. Between final year university work, actual work (snore) and general life things, it hasn't been easy keeping a blog as well! I have three more weeks to do until I never have to look at an assignment again in my LIFE. How amazing does this sound? I can almost feel it, let's celebrate with an outfit post!

That lovely weather has me feeling all summery, in which case it was time to get the lily white legs out in this Wearall asymmetric black skirt. I purchased a skirt very similar to this last year from Boohoo but it was very long and I was forever tripping over it on holiday. This one is a great length and a great price at £11. It will be finding it's way into my suitcase this August for sure as it'll go with everything and it's super comfortable for walking about in that great French weather. 

A dark skirt calls for a bright top and what better than this River Island beauty? This lime green crop top is actually from last season but I am sure they have the same one this year in lilac. I have tried to look for it on their website but I can't find it, maybe that's a good thing as i'd only end up buying it. 

As for the necklace, I think it looks like an Accessorize number? What do you think? For £8 you can't go too far wrong with good old Primarni! haha. My tan wedges were a rare TK Maxx find... Michael Kors.. £50! I'll say no more, but I haven't bagged a bargain like that since. It literally just is luck with that shop whether you come across that gem or not.

If you haven't heard of wearall.com I highly recommend you check out their site. It's bargain central! Of course I love the old favs like River Island and Toppers but it is always good to check out some other brands to find something a little bit different. Wearall has a 'celebrity style' section on their website so you can steal more of Miss Jenner's style, other than just her nude lip! Happy Shopping.

Spring 2015 Wishlist - Pastels

4 comments
A photo of a Spring 2015 wishlist

Dahlia Linen Look Scarf (£19 Accessorize)
'Birthday Cake' Statement Necklace (£19.99 Hugo Sophia)
Lamb Design Socks (£3 (or 3 for 2) Marks and Spencer)
Satin And Lace Blouse (£40 Warehouse)

Bonjourrrrrrrrrrrr!

It's official. Even though it is really hard to tell, Spring is well and truly here (apparently) so what else would I be doing other than writing a Spring 2015 wishlist?! I can't even tell you how tired I am of the dark winter colours, I mean, I love my MAC Rebel, fur collars and knee-length boots but a little shimmery coral lipstick, vest top and flip flops would be nice for a change. Am I actually saying that? I'm a changed person. 

Nothing says Spring more than pastels. That is the first thing I jump into as soon as the sun decides to show it's face! First of all, how darn cute are those feathery barely there sandals from Boohoo? To be honest with you, I have had some bad experiences with Boohoo and I found a lot of their things were bad quality but these are so pretty I would contemplate giving them a 6th chance! 

As for the statement necklace, it's just beautiful isn't it? I follow Hugo Sophia boutique on Instagram and I just can't get enough of their statement pieces. They all look so well made and they are so inexpensive, no one wants to break the bank! 

Onto homeware and Next tops the list yet again. I just wish I could have my house looking like a Next Home showroom. They do the most beautiful cushions and general decoration-type things. How cute are these birdcage wall stickers? They even had an Eiffel Tower at one point too. I always maintained that if I had any wall space, I would have to have these just for something that little bit different.

What are you lusting after this Spring? Are you as into your pastels as I am? I went to my local Primark the other day and I picked up some great pieces! They are well and truly embracing the pastels trend. Haul post to follow!

Three things that have made blogging easier

6 comments

Hello everybody! I have been blogging for just over a year and I have loved having my own little space on the internet 

HOWEVER, 

it takes so much more work than I ever expected! Along the way I have discovered a few things that I just wouldn't be without now. Juggling a part-time job, university and blogging isn't easy, but it can be made easier and more enjoyable. I still regard myself as a beginner and I am still learning but if you are thinking of starting a blog, or have just started one, then definitely take note of these three things!

1. www.bufferapp.com for social media scheduling 


Help for bloggers - Buffer app

This is a recent discovery for me after someone recommended it on a Twitter chat. I have used other schedulers but some of them were difficult to get my head around and others just simply didn't work. 

Buffer makes a blogger's life easy as you can schedule your Twitter, Facebook, Google+ etc messages for anytime in the future and then you can totally forget about it! Another perk of Buffer is that it has an analytics feature to see which posts worked well. This helps you to plan for the future, what works, what doesn't, how you can improve etc...


2. www.picmonkey.com for photo editing


Help for bloggers - Picmonkey

I am no wizz at photoshop but I still want good quality photo edits for my blog. I have been using Picmonkey for years for simple edits and I really love it. You don't need to create an account, you just go onto the site, upload your photo and you are done in a few minutes. The only content you are restricted from is 'Royale' which you have to pay for. There are so many great features without going this far though!

Blogging is a time-consuming hobby so you want to get some things done as quick as possible. Once you get the hand of Picmonkey you will be able to create perfect photos for your blog posts in minutes. All it takes is a little patience to learn and trial and error to see what style fits with your blog's personality. It is no doubt that great photography is the number one thing that draws me to a blog.

3. Notepad for brainstorming


Help for bloggers: notepad for brainstorming


The third and final thing that has definitely made blogging easier is a simple notepad! This is  a shot of the one on my laptop but sometimes I like to go old school and use a physical notepad and pen (who would have thought? haha)

For too long I had good ideas for blog posts while I was reading magazines or watching TV and just thought to myself 'Oh, I'll remember that!' and I never do! So I thought I would do the smart thing and start making a list, I will then either tick them off or delete them as I work through. Rocket science eh? I also have notes for websites for blog help (like The Wonder Forest), my blogroll and various links and blogger network details.

If you start a list like this it will surprise you how much stress it can lift from your shoulders, I feel much more organised now and even though I have slowed my blogging down whilst I am in final year at university, I know I will have a lot of fresh ideas for when I start up fully again.


And there you have it! Three things that have made my blogging life easier. What do you think? If you have any more ideas feel free to comment or tweet me @thefashionsix 


Did you see my post on how to add a blog comment signature and my list of blog post ideas? This might help if you are lacking some inspiration!

5 Shades of Grey... wishlist edition!

5 comments

Any excuse to blog a wishlist eh? More than one Grey takes my eye and it takes the form in clothing, obviously! I noticed on the River Island website the sheer amount of slogan tops they have at the moment and the two below are my favourite picks. Remember the highly sought after 'full time fashion blogger' grey jumper that they had before Christmas? Oh I so regret not buying that (even if I would have cringed wearing it out in public!).

Also, how smart are the two grey coats from Missguided? I would be tempted but I'm too preoccupied waiting on Spring to even contemplate hanging yet another coat in my wardrobe! I would willingly take the Michael Kors Selma bag though with no questions. I have it in purple and I love it. I need a structured handbag, one that isn't like Mary Poppins' but still holds a fair bit. My Selma does the job!

Handbags from House Of Fraser...

Accessories from ASOS...

Yet again I have purchased something from my wishlist that I didn't exactly need... I fell in love with the grey roll neck/vest top! My thinking was, black high waisted skinnies, boots (heels for going out) and a simple long gold chain. I actually saw this on a sales assistant in River Island and it definitely sold it to me. I didn't need much persuasion though, grey is one of my favourite colours to wear!


What are your thoughts on my wishlist picks? Are you a big fan of grey? Tweet me @thefashionsix or comment below. I'd love to hear from you!

The Mac Tag!

12 comments
Photo of MAC makeup review


How long have you been using Mac?
Hmmm... I've been using MAC products for about 3 years now. I purchased Ruby Woo lipstick and fell in love with the brand and wanted to try out every product!

What was your first Mac Product?
Ruby Woo matte lipstick! I just love it, it's a beautiful bright red with blue undertones that stays on for ages. Some people don't really like it as it is so matte that it literally judders across your lips when you apply it but once you are used to the texture and feel of it, it's fab. 

What is your Favourite Mac product?
And for the 3rd time.. their lipsticks! haha. I am a big lippy lover, it's definitely my favourite piece of makeup. The brighter and bolder, the better!

What is your least favourite Mac Product?
Last year I purchased the Studio Fix foundation and I wasn't too keen to be honest with you! I find the MAC foundations very yellow in tone and it just did not suit my skin at all. I also wasn't too keen on the smell, it is one of the strongest smelling foundations I have ever had! In saying that, it was expensive so the last thing I want is for it to go to waste. I have started mixing it with another liquid foundation to 'use it up' but it actually works really well.

Do you own a pro card?
No?!? I haven't even heard of this! I'm guessing it is something to do with points...

Your Mac foundation shade?
I can't remember the shade of my Studio Fix, I think is was NW20 though. Like I said, their colours are very yellow-y and on the right skin tone they are beautiful as I have saw many a Insta photo where it looks flawless! Unfortunately I just can't pull them off *sadface*

Eyeshadow?
I don't wear much eyeshadow, I'd much rather go for a bold lip and I think looks too much if I wear both! To brighten the eye area I use a matte nude but it isn't Mac. I am howerver on the lookout for a Mac version as my current one is running out.

Lipstick?
Rebel and Ruby Woo, in that order! I'm lusting over Velvet Teddy and Girl About Town too <3

Brush
I have the 188 Small Duo Fibre Face Brush and it's perfect for applying concealer or foundation around my eyes and nose. It's by far my favourite makeup brush out of my whole collection.

Nail Lacquer
I have never used MAC polishes!

Bronzing Powder
I haven't used their bronzers. I'm just too in love with my bareMinerals Warmth to change!

Powder Blush
I love my MAC 'Gingerly' as I'm not a big fan of harsh pink blusher. This is a lovely apricot shade and gives a nice natural finish. Before I bought my Mac blush I found it difficult to find a shade that was suitable all year round. Gingerly definitely is! 

Blush Creme
Not a lover of cream blush in general! I bought a Revlon one not so long ago and when I applied it, my liquid foundation just melted off my face on that area! Toxic or what? haha

Lipstick
I have BIG loves for their lipsticks and rant about them often (In a good way haha), they are easily the reason why I keep going back to MAC. if you haven't tried their lipsticks, especially the matte collection, then I highly recommend that you do! One application lasts all day, magic. If you have never tried a Mac lippy then you could start out with Viva Glam V. It is a stunning pinkish-nude with a shimmer through it. It literally suits every skin tone and it is so easy wearing. 

What products do you think Mac are missing.
I can't think! There are lots of MAC products but the problem is trying to get near the stands. The MAC counter is always so busy!

I nominate any fellow beauty bloggers or general MAC obsessors to do this tag!

Have you seen my full Ruby Woo and Rebel lipstick reviews?
