Favourite Lipsticks

It finally felt like time to do something different on my blog. Although I will always mainly focus on fashion and styling, make-up and beauty is also a big focus of, well, my general life. To coincide with my newest YouTube video showcasing my main lipstick collection, I thought I'd do a little post on my top favourite lippys in there and what they're like!












"dare" // sleek

This is my favourite lipstick. This is also my newest lipstick. I bought it about er... 9 days ago? In that short time it's become my staple colour. I am obsessed with it. I was on the hunt for a brown lipstick and came across this one in the Sleek section in Boots. It's not completely a brown; I'd say it's a mix of brown and red and the brown's winning. I find it really daytime wearable, and because it's a matte lipstick it doesn't budge. I also think it brings out the colour of my eyes which is always a plus. 












"please me" // mac

My second favourite lipstick ever (I'm not going in order ha, but this one only got beaten last week so deserves to go second). I bought this lipstick on a whim in the Trafford Centre this time last year. For a time it was also my staple colour. It's a "different" kind of pink. It's not barbie bright or a pale pastel like most pinks I find. I just love it. I wore it to my grad ball, and honestly if someone came up to me right now and said "imagine it's your wedding day, you have 60 seconds" I'd put this lipstick on. 












"russian red" // mac

I don't have much to say about this one (it speaks for itself). I didn't get into wearing red lipstick until I was blonde, and this was my first ever staple red. I don't wear it often, but when I do it always feels like a big deal. 












"110 (kate moss)" // rimmel

This is another one that I'm not sure I could pull off if I wasn't blonde. It is such an incredibly summery colour, and looks really good on my pale skin if I just add a little bronzer and contour so I'm not completely washed out. The lipstick itself is really soft and moisturising, and it smells good too! It's kind of my go-to colour if I'm feeling a bit out there because I'm otherwise quite a muted colours kind of girl.












"black cherry" // revlon

Mmm this lipstick. It says gothic to me without being too dark, which is perfect. I bought it the day I finished my last university exam as a treat, so only 3 months ago - it definitely hasn't seen enough nights out yet. If my boyfriend said a lipstick was too much I'd tell him to go shove it, and I expected him to be put off by this one, but he actually expressed a lot of liking for it (which is saying a lot when boys don't give much on the opinions of lipstick besides "that's nice" or "not a fan"). It isn't matte though so does require looking after throughout the day/night.












"posture" // illamasqua

Last but not least, this absolute stunner of a lipstick. I swear all my lipsticks are spur of the moment purchases besides the aforementioned brown. This one was snapped up during a one evening only 50% off sale on the Illamasqua website. Yes, it's a lilac, but I wouldn't say it's soo lilac that it's unwearable. I think it's just pale and subtle enough that it gives that kooky and unusual vibe that you're obviously going for wearing a lilac lipstick, but it's not too in your face... or anyone else's face. The lipstick starts off with a very dry consistency, so you have to really work it into the lips and then the product warms and softens and goes on smoothly. It's beautiful and I lav it. 

Thanks so much for reading and go check out the full video ^.^

Relax















sweat top // topshop
leggings // river island
denim jacket // topman
sneaks // nike
lips // dare (sleek)

I'm just hanging around inside today, doing bloggy internet things and playing pc games (Hitman: Blood Money, if you were wondering.) If you're not a fan of leggings as pants, back away now. These leggings are very thick and high waisted and ULTRA comfortable. You can't judge me anyway - it's not like I've left the house. This sweat crop-top I picked up a while back in a Topshop sale. It's super cute and the ribbed bottom gives it that sports luxe feel. 

My hair was just not doing what I wanted today so I decided to try out the "hipster bun" and I have to say I'm quite a fan. The lipstick I chucked on as an afterthought because it matched my sneaks. Yeah, just in case I decide to venture outdoors I completed the outfit with jacket and trainers. Lazy days win.

Snap Happy















romper // american apparel
air force 1s // nike

I've become very "snap happy" as of late. I take my camera with me everywhere I go (don't want to miss a blogging opportunity...) and have taken some pictures of my last few days. Thought I'd share them with you whilst also taking the opportunity to mention that my first LOOKBOOK will be going up on YouTube tomorrow! :)

Oui Non

t-shirt // topshop
jeans // topshop
shirt // new look
nike sneaks // foot locker 
watch // casio

I love my new air force 1s. Love love love love. I'd been a good Georgie for months and resisted buying trainers, but when you turn 21 (or I guess just have a birthday in general) you need to spoil yourself. So I spoiled. The Topshop t-shirt is also a relatively recent buy which I think is just so simple and cute, could be made very girly, but in my usual way I kept the fancy stuff to a minimum and the whole outfit really casual. 

The setting is a somewhat dodgy-looking alleyway in central Manchester, right by the Northern Quarter. I can see it featuring in future posts because it pretty much screamed "take pictures" at me. When I was having these pictures taken I had a kind of moment where I realised I was finally comfortable taking blog pictures in public. People kept walking past and you just have to suck it up and think "meh, make it work".

Jungle














t-shirt // asos
leggings // adidas
shoes // converse
watch // casio

Just a quick post showcasing my newest favourite leggings. I'd been on the hunt for jungle style clothes for ages. Ever since I saw a random picture on Tumblr of jungle leggings and converse. So I went out and bought jungle leggings and converse... (jokes, already had the converse. I mean have you seen how dirty they are?)

I've been quite busy lately, grad job hunting and sorting out my YouTube channel. I'm going to be doing my first lookbook soon which I'm very excited about! My July favourites is going up on my YT channel today so check it out :)
