Spring Poppy Skirt

I am very pleased to say I have done an outfit post despite how little time I have and the best thing is I saved myself some money yet I ahve a new item in my wardrobe. Anyway I'm rambling so I'll cut to the chase, when I was about 11 I had a favourite dress with poppies on and I tried it on again the other day and it didn't quite fit me but I was in clothes desperation so I made some adjustments and it is now a highwaisted skirt which I love! I tried to update it with my suede schuh wedges, a pearl bracelet, thrifted headscarf and a bit of lipstick. Here's the result hope you like!..



You could add a blazer like my one from NewLook to make it less formal..

Bourjois Mascara Review and the New Plait...

I tried out a new plait on my friend Elly yesterday and she has thinner hair and it seems to make it look thicker. I adjusted the pieces of hair to make it almost flat and it created the appearance of more hair. I think it would also work well with layers and it would make it slightly messy which is on trend currently. You could have two plaits but I only did one side plait as it made it thicker and easier to work with, hope you like...


I added in this jewelled hair band from Rachel Wood Designs.. http://www.rachelwooddesigns.co.uk/
 This is the bourjois liner effect mascara which I bought in town for £8.60 whilst with my friend Rodrigues :) Its a massive imrpovement on my current mascara and it really lengthens the eyelashes making them really defined without clumps. If you are looking for longer eyelashes then I would strongly recommend it however in the name it says about it doubling as an eyeliner which it does in a way as it fully coats the eyelashes from root to tip which gives the effect of a kohl eyeliner; but you still need to add on eyeliner like I've done, just not as much as usual.
