Peach Jeans Outfit and Butterflies

Top & Jeans from Next, Boots from Office.

I love these peachy, pinky jeans from Next. They're great for summer. I've always struggled to find jeans that fit but Next jeans fit perfectly with just enough extra room for a burger... or two. 

Apologies for the grubby boots, I've lived in these since October and I don't care how dirty they get they're not going anywhere. They're so comfy and they go with everything (maybe).

Blogging Friends & Ice Skating Adventures

Those of you that have read my 'May Highlights- Life So Far'  post will know I now work with the amazing Eloise from Frolics and Fashion (and those of you that have't read it go, go go... I try and be funny and everything). That's right there's now another girl in the team, and she blogs. That means lots of conversations about clothes, make-up, blogging and someone to understand my need to take selfies... 

Needless to say the guys in the office find it hilarious when we sneak off to take outfit photos. 
My Outfit: Blue shirt dress: Tesco, Boots: Office, Bag: Zatchels 
Eloise's Outfit: Cardigan: Primark, Playsuit: AX Paris, Boots: Vagabond via Office

MAC Pro Longwear Foundation Review

I'm pale, with odd yellowish skin, spotty and have a combination of dry and oily skin. So finding the perfect foundation can be tricky. My ideal foundation stays matte in the rights areas but also leaves me with a dewy glow and somehow transforms me into a Victorias Secret model. Is that too much to ask for? probably.

I bought the MAC Pro Longwear foundation a few weeks ago on a bit of a whim. I needed a new foundation and the sales lady was very good at her job, so 2 minutes later I was handing over my card and the rest is history.


For Application I would have originally given this a gruesome 2/5 stars. It's difficult to apply and clings in all of the wrong places. But this morning i stumbled upon a miracle in the form of a damp beauty blender sponge, I've used a sponge before but never damp. O boy does this make a difference. It's so easy and took no more than 30 seconds to cover my whole face and blend!

4/5 because nobody's perfect.


I've never got on well with the colour choices from MAC (I know, I know why was I even at the counter?). But with a lot of blending the colour is ok... just a little dark to start with!

2/5 Because without some serious blending i'd look like an umpa lumpa


 The formula feels slightly sticky when you use your hands to apply. Maybe a little gel like? I'm not a fan of the formula or texture until i whip out the damn beauty blender... then the fomula was fine.

2/5 The beauty blender means I don't have to touch it but my face still feels slightly sticky straight after application

 Staying Power

Now this is the tuff part, nothing every stays put. Everything creases around my smile lines... if only i could stop smiling! I get creases under my eyes and everything completely disappears from around my nose.

This lasts until lunch before I need to powder my nose, and then it can last from morning until about 7pm.

3/5 my oily face should probably take some of the blame.

Overall verdict

Would I but it again? Probably not. Not because it was bad, but the hunt for the perfect foundation continues.

May Highlights- Life So Far!

Close up outfit photo, blue patterned top, white scarf, ginger hair
Outfit of the day, blue patterned top, white scarf, jeans and blue suede heels
Scarf, Top, Jeans & Shoes all from Next.

My first Outfit photos taken with a tripod outside... on my own. Let's just point out the obvious, posing taking photos in a public place is always a little awkward. Doing it on your own with a tripod is super awkward. The looks on peoples faces as they walked on by...
