WEARING RIGHT NOW



Well as you all know from my last post I've recently been on holiday to Cornwall, and the place I was staying is situated near a lovely little place called Rock, and Rock is home to one of the amazing Jack Wills stores. When I was a little younger, I was a total die-hard Jack Wills fan, getting every single nick-nack down to the tissues in my Christmas stocking, going to the polo (got my picture in the catalogue there!) and actually painting my wall with the pink and blue stripes! Rock is actually the first place I ever saw & bought something form jack wills (be it a pair of £10 pants haha) so I always love coming back there. They've recently refurbished the shop and moved to a bigger spot next door and I have to say I loved it. Jack Wills stores are always that little bit more special as they feel more like a vintage holiday home than a retail shop, with the stacks of old books and picture frames dotted around the place as well as the quirky bits of furniture. My favourite part of this store was a neon pink light in the shape of stag antlers. 

Anyway onto my bargain purchases! On my first visit I actually just ran in for some lip-balm before a walk but then discovered all the make-up had been reduced to crazy cheap prices so ended up buying a few bits. Firstly I got the Oakland Lip Gloss in Pale Pink, I always wear pale colours and minimal make-up on my lips so I thought this would be ideal for day to day wear. It gives your lips a brilliant shine and the tiny glitter particles give them a lovely sparkle, but the fact this is combines with the neutral tone makes it very wearable.

As I said before, I always tend to wear pale colours on my lips so thought as it was on sale I'd try something new. With my blonde hair I'm always afraid really bright colours will make me look a little barbie-ish so decided to go for the Summerston Lipstick in Wine. I was really pleasantly surprised with this, I didn't expect it to suit me but because the colour is darker, it makes it more subtle but still adds some colour. It also happens to smell absolutely gorgeous, as well as staying in place and leaving my lips feeling very moisturised, so I would definitely recommend these lipsticks, and the Wine shade is a nice colour to carry into autumn.

My last make-up purchase was the Keston Long Lash Mascara. It has a small brush so takes a bit of applying but after a few coats I was really pleased with the outcome. The liquid itself actually has small fibres (if you look close enough at the picture you'll see) in it that cling on to your own lash during application and really makes them look a lot longer. 

As for my beautiful new Holcombe Sunglasses, I absolutely adore them. I was so excited to see that they were reduced from £79 to £24 so decided to treat myself. Its about time I got round to owning a decent pair instead of knock-off Ray Bans and Primark shades! I really like half-frame glasses, I think they frame the face nicely and give any outfit a little retro twist. I chose cream as it brings out the light parts in my hair and looks good with my current tan. They were so nicely packaged I haven't actually taken them out of the box to wear yet, but I'm sure they will soon feature in a future post!

Hope you guys enjoyed my first (part) beauty post! I've really enjoyed writing it so i'm sure there will be more to come.
