Jetting off!

I'm going away for the weekend, but wanted to quickly post an outfit and update you guys!

I heard back about the job I applied for, and have been offered an even better position than I had hoped for...which I am insanely excited and shocked about! While this is fantastic news I have no idea how easy it will be to regularly post on here and make videos, but sometimes being busy makes me more productive :)

Anyway, I've recently been getting back into wearing more interesting outfits than my standard jeans, converse and hoody - which is great for blogging purposes! I think winter gets me stuck in a rutt as it's so cold all the time that I just want to layer up. So, for any of you who asked for a video on 'how to style a rock t-shirt', I hope this and some upcoming posts will help.

Jump in the fire

I love rock/metal style, but always like to add a girly touch to my outfits.

So, mixing glamorous faux fur pieces with rocker/edgy boots and tees is the perfect combination for me...

Some MAC and Nars lipstick swatches!

I posted a 'What I got for Christmas' video a while ago in which I showed all these lipsticks, and I promised to make a blog post with some swatches....
So here it is...
Nars Barbarella (Sheer)

Nars Dolce Vita (Sheer)

Nars Pago Pago (Sheer)

MAC Sandy B (Frost)

MAC Angel (Frost)

MAC Pervette (Glaze)

MAC Saint Germain (Amplified Creme)

MAC Please Me (Matte)
Nars lipsticks

The sheer formula of the Nars lipsticks is so creamy and smooth, but as the name suggests the colours aren't that pigmented. However, they can be built up to produce a slightly deeper colour. I believe Dolce Vita can also be bought as a lip gloss which is a much more pigmented colour.

MAC lipsticks

MAC's Angel and Sandy B (frosts) are both creamy and smooth, however I find the glitter particles can dry out the lips slightly more than Pervette, which is a glaze. I find the glaze formula feels lovely and smooth on the lips and I'm starting to like it more than cremesheen, which can be a bit slippy. As for Saint Germain (amplified creme), I love the colour (when applied slightly sheerer than photographed) and the formula helps to keep the colour bold. However, I actually find Please Me (matte) keeps my lips softer and the colour looks AMAZING for hours!!

What's your favourite Nars or MAC formula?

Laid back grunge with a hint of Pink!

As you may have noticed I haven't blogged in a LONG time. I'm not gonna reel off a ton of reasons as to why, but I've been using any spare time I had to make videos instead of blog.

Also the lighting where I normally take photos is so rubbish at the moment - these photos were actually taken back in October! I've been trying to photograph outfits up in my room, but I don't like the way the background distracts from the clothing.

I've gotta be speedy and get this up quick because I've got a job interview tomorrow. So I'm spending the evening preparing myself by painting my nails a nice sheer professional looking pink (OPI Heart Throb) and setting aside an outfit to wear (which I'll photograph). For the past week I've thought over any questions they may ask, but I want to keep my mind clear tonight so I get a good nights sleep!

Hope you're all well!
