Mini Haul!

Today, I acquired a couple of fashion/beauty products, and I thought I'd make a little blog post showing you what I got.

I'm going to start with the beauty products and the first beauty product I picked up was this L'Oreal True Match Touche Magique Highlighting Concealer in Ivory Beige. I wanted to try this because I've been feeling like my current concealer is a tiny bit orange and doesn't really blend into my skin as much as I would like it to. So, I have this one now and I will do a review on it as well as the rest of the products in this post once I've had the chance to try them out properly.

Next I bought these two Rimmel London Exaggerate Lip Liners in 063 Eastend Snob and 024 Red Diva. Before these I actually didn't own a lip liner at all so I decided it was time to invest.

The final beauty product I invested in today was Rimmel London Natural Bronzer in 022 Sun Bronze. I've never really had the determination to sit and spend hours getting bronzer just right and the only bronzer I had didn't really work for me so hopefully this one will be good enough to encourage me to put more effort into bronzing/highlighting my face.

On to fashion! I am a major pumps/ballerina shoe lover and anyone who knows me knows that when I find a pair I love I wear them to death. That is why my white ones are covered in mud and my blue ones are falling apart. So, it was finally time to say goodbye to my old favourites and hello to my new ones. These shoes are a slightly different style to the regular ballerina pumps that I usually wear but it's good to shake things up once in a while! I love the patterns on both of these, the blue ones are just adorable and the leopard print ones look like they'll go with anything so it's an all around win! I had to wear them around a little first but now they are super comfy and fit my tiny size 3 feet perfectly.

The last fashion item I got was this F&F Quilted Phone PurseBecause I'm the type of person who hates having worry about a handbag getting lost or stolen when I'm out, I think this little purse is perfect as I can keep all of my money and my phone in one place and with the gold chain strap I can keep it with me all the time without it getting in the way (and this way I don't have to make my boyfriend carry all my stuff around for me). You can also get this purse in cream but I decided to go with black just because it'll go with a wider range of outfits.

FOTD & OOTD: Birthday Meal!

Today, myself and my family went for a meal at Junction 28 in late celebration of my 18th birthday. So I decided to show you what I paired my cute little AX Paris playsuit with!

I wore it with these little brown strappy sandals by F&F, they have a 3 inch heel which, for me, is the perfect balance between height and still being able to walk, the shade of brown literally goes with anything and they have cute little gold pyramid shapes on the straps to keep them fun and interesting. They're not the comfiest shoes but they're fine for a sit down meal.
I actually didn't wear any jewelry with this because I'm not really a big jewelry wearer and I didn't feel like the outfit required any. If I was to wear jewelry with it though, I would have probably worn my pandora bracelet and some earrings, I definitely would have kept it simple though.

For make-up, again I kept it very simple. I'm not one for going overboard with jewelry and make-up, I like to let the outfit speak for itself. So all I'm wearing on my face is Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer, Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation 010, Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder, Bourjois 48 Cendre De Rose Brune Blush, Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara and Rimmel Special Eyes Eyeliner. 

Okay, so I just realised how many Rimmel products I use. Maybe it's time to be a bit more adventurous and invest in some new brands. Maybe I'll pick up some new stuff the next time I go shopping and I'll do some reviews on here.

Anyway, thank you for visiting my little blog, feel free to have a look around some more and maybe leave me a comment letting me know what products I should try!

Talk soon, Aimee.

July Favourites!

Oh my gosh! It's already time for another favourites post, I don't know where the month of July went but it has literally flown by. It has been a crazy but wonderful month due to my birthday, my trip to Centre Parcs and the insanely sunny weather we've been having. But now I'm back and I'm ready to settle back down into daily life. So, let's get started.

Make-Up and Beauty!

Quick Fix Facials Anti-Blemish Mud Mask: I can honestly say that this face mask has been a lifesaver for me this month. I don't know if it's the heat, but I have been having a lot of trouble with my skin and this mask just seems to fix all of my problems. I've been using this pretty much whenever my skin needed a pick-me-up and it would just leave my skin feeling refreshed, clean and soft. It claims to remove excess oil, draw out impurities, tighten pores, treat spots and prevent future blemishes, and I believe that it does just that. In the days after I use it my skin feels less oily, without being dry, and it really seems to prevent spots. Definitely my favourite product this month.


AX Paris Collar Floral Playsuit: I bought this playsuit very recently from New Look and it's already one of my favourite pieces of clothing. It fits me really well and has a really gorgeous shape to it. It's one of those things that just looks 10 times better when you actually try it on. It's very comfortable and very light and very easy to wear day and night.

Pandora Bracelet: Quite a few members of my family all chipped in to buy me a pandora bracelet and the charms on it for my 18th birthday. I can get into the charms in detail in another post but this present was so thoughtful and beautiful, I love it!

Miss Selfridge Bardot Fit and Flare Dress: I ordered this dress to wear to my uncle's wedding in a few months and it's perfect. I cant even explain to you how well fitting this dress is, it's an extremely comfortable material that hugs your body in all the right places making you look super skinny. I'm not even exaggerating this dress is just so flattering yet sophisticated enough for me to wear it to my uncle's wedding. 

Food and Drink!

Malibu and Lemonade: So, I'm 18 now and I can FINALLY buy myself alcohol. The strangest thing is that the day before I turned 18 I just know that I'd be ID'd everywhere. Sine the day I turned 18, I've been ID'd once. ONCE! Anyway, I just love this combination, it's sweet and tasty and doesn't have a strong taste of alcohol (I hate the taste of alcohol). I've also found that this drink doesn't leave me feeling like crap in the mornings so it's an all around win!


Aladdin AVEO Water Bottle White Floral: I have been on a mission this month to drink more water to keep myself hydrated and healthy. I fill this water bottle up every morning and I try to at least finish the bottle and maybe start a second one. I love it because it's really sturdy and does exactly what I want it to, while also being pretty. If you want to drink more water I would definitely recommend getting a water bottle because you can keep it with you all day without having to constantly refill it.

Badminton: I know this is a weird favourite but while we were in Centre Parcs, my boyfriend and I played this a lot. Like everyday. It's just something that we really enjoy doing together and I'm slowly getting better it so one day I will win!


Once Upon A Time: With all seriousness, can we please take a moment to just think of how amazing this show is? Its dramatic, exciting and stars a whole bunch of our favourite storybook characters. I am literally obsessed with this at the moment, I've just finished the first series and I'm so excited to start the second. I may be a little late to the party on this one but I can't wait to be all caught up and ready for season four!


The Purge: Anarchy: Don't worry, I'm not going to give out any spoilers since this movie is still in the cinema right now, but I will say that it was pretty damn good. Usually sequels never really compare to the original movie but this felt like it's own movie, which I liked. I felt like you didn't need to watch the first movie to understand and enjoy this one and I liked how it focused on more than one set of people, rather than just one family. It was good, it was exciting, it made me jump, I'd definitely recommend watching if you haven't already.

21 and Over: Oh. My. Why haven't I seen this movie before? Okay I know why, it's because it doesn't look like the kind of movie I'd enjoy but I finally watched it and it was great. It was funny and exciting without being over the top and unrealistic. It also had a nice little ending where everything worked out and everyone was happy, which is always nice.


JoshuaDTV & PsychoSoprano: I love these youtubers individually, they're both really funny and down to earth, but together I am obsessed with them! They are the perfect couple, they're hilarious together and they just make my heart melt. If you haven't checked them out yet, do it! You will laugh, unless you're a robot or something.
