Most deffo a statement shade, I think that this is the most 'out there' lipstick I own (although, I have just purchased a dark blue Nyx lipstick, so we'll see how that pans out).

I believe these are Sleek's newest lipstick release, and as it goes, my first Sleek lipstick buy. I'm luvin it. They're supposedly meant to have a 'semi-matte' finish, which I kinda agree with as it's not completely matte, but not killing it with the shine either. But then I'm like,it's either matte or it's not, I'm not sure that a lipstick can be half matte. Thoughts? 

Anyway, I was really surprised at how pigmented this baby is, one swipe and my lips were completely opaque with cover. I naturally put on about 100 more layers through habit, but it's really not needed. I think the best thing about it being 'semi-matte' is that it's got cray cray moisturising goodness, and not at all drying like mattes can be. It's got all the good stuff like shea butter and coconut oil, which I guess is why it's so creamy and easy to put on.

The downside to this is that it slid off with my food very easily when I ate, leaving quite an unsightly ring of lilac around bare lip - yeah, not a good look. Other than that, it lasted well for the few hours I had it on before I stuffed ma face.

Don't ask why I'm in car park, I'm running out of decent places to take photos, so an empty car park seemed like a good option at the time. Will prob return here, ngl.

This frilly top from Urban Outfitters soooooo reminds me of what I used to wear when I was like 7. If you want 90's style, a little frilly top like this, with a pair of dungarees and a choker, is a good way to go. Obviously frills are everywhere and the mo, but I haven't really seen that many tops with this cute little 90's frill trim - apart from UO. They're balling for frilly tops like this right now, as well as dresses and playsuits.

Tbh I've just gone full out 90's with this outfit, throwing out the docs and half up hair as well. Just can't get enough.

Also, I got my daith pierced right before taking these pics (above picture), and let me tell you, it huuuurrrttt. I am shit with piercing pain though. But honestly, I felt it. I may do a post on it as I haven't really ever seen anyone else with this piercing before. Just a thought... As well, getting this piercing done has put me back in the mood for more piercings, there's so many I want to get now (all ear ones, might I add)! The same also happens whenever I get a new tattoo, it's like the addiction is reignited. Anyone else get this?

I went to a festival in Portsmouth (Mutiny) a couple of weeks back where it was suppose to be raining for most of the weekend. Luckily it turned out to be hot and sunny, but I did *purchase this yellow beauty a few days before with that in mind. Deffo would be ready for the rain armed with my raincoat. 

*Impulse buy. Most of my purchases are impulses buys. This is why I can't save.

These metallic denim shorts are a result of the same Topshop spree and they're festival as fxck, wouldn't you agree? The denim shorts and raincoat make the perfect pair to wear at a drizzly English festival. The jacket is really light as well, so y'know in the summer when it's raining but still really muggy... yeah? Won't be sweating out in it. Perfect for a festival as well if you find yourself dancing in the rain.
