OOTD Moving into Spring

Once Christmas has gone, I am so over winter so buying spring clothes was on my agenda and when I saw these trousers they just screamed me. However, as much as I want it to be spring clothing appropriate its sort of that awkward time of year where it's time to be brighter but I also need serious warmth leading to me pairing with this with the cosiest jumper I own. It also picks out the pink tones in the trousers instead of wearing the typical black jumper. As the trousers are very figure hugging I find tucking in the jumper makes it sort of blend together a bit better but also gives a contrast. 

I then accessorised with rose gold as again it picks out the pink colours, the earrings are just basic hoops which I used to not be a big fan of but now I am obsessed, the watch is a brown leather with a rose gold face and I just cannot wait to wear it with a tan as I think that would look so good.

January Favourites

Usually I am the one to say 'where did the month go' but seriously I think most people can't wait to see the back of January as nothing really happens, however, February is hopefully going to have a lot more going on but I did have a lot of favourites due to trying a lot after the Christmas period.

Zoeva Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette - I had been eyeing up this palette for a while as it's filled with gorgeous warm shades plus I had heard it had amazing quality for the affordable price of £18 which works out to less than £2 per shade! My personal favourites are the first 3 in the bottom row as you will know if you have read my blog before the obsession with golds and oranges is real. The longevity is also so good and I don't think I have used anything else since getting it.

L'Oreal True Match Powder - I had always sworn by Rimmel Stay Matte Powder so had never really branched out but recently I had noticed it becoming quite cakey and needed reapplying quite often so this has become my new obsession as it doesn't make my skin too matte but keeps my makeup on all day, it also matches my skin tone perfectly as usually, i need translucent to prevent looking orange.

Benefit Dandelion Blusher - I received this for Christmas and it's the perfect colour for my skin tone to look naturally blushed and also has no shimmer which I hate in a Blusher. This is only the sample size but I will definitely be buying the full size when it runs out.

MAC Russian Red - This was another lovely Christmas present which I have worn time and time again since Christmas day as it's a lovely colour for winter and is one of those lipsticks I can put on if I feel a bit rubbish or my makeup doesn't look the best. The only thing some people might not like as much is the fact it needs reapplying quite often but its such a lovely colour it hasn't phased me.

New look Rose Gold Watch - I have never been a watch sort of person but I had seen so many pretty OOTD's and Instagram pictures of people with a rose gold watch and I just longed for one, so when I saw this I fell in love and thought even if it ended up as an item in the background of a photo it's too pretty to say no but I have actually worn it and a serious watch convert if that's a thing :')

Collab Dry Shampoo - I have been meaning to pick this up for a while as it's invisible and it is one of the most annoying things when the white powder residue just won't go but it seems to work miracles, it's so lightweight but also can make even my third day hair look freshly washed.

Lee Stafford Chopstick Curler - I had a lot of questions on Snapchat (@ktlou_99) how I did my crazy curly hair and it was this, and I love it! To start with I wasn't sure if it suited me or I was just rocking the 80's but, to be honest whats wrong with a bit of a throwback. The curler was also surprisingly affordable at £19 and well worth it as I have been doing this hairstyle on a daily basis.

Calm- This is a book that essentially does as it says. I saw this on sale and picked it up on a whim to get motivated and stress less as my anxiety has been incredibly high and I think it works, it creates a positive outlook on life and ways to distract the mind from anything that might be causing anxiety.
