Getting ready with me

I love dressing up when I can, it’s just the perfect excuse to experiment with fashion and create new looks with my makeup, I’m sure all you girlies would agree ;). When it comes to clothes, you’ll know I’m a huge fan of MISSGUIDED and their ‘new in’ range because that is where I fall in love. If you guys follow me on Twitter and Instagram, I normally keep everyone up-to-date with my latest buys.


I’ll start with my outfit, just something pretty simple I put together but I’ve let the accessories do all the talking. I found that this look was portrayed by people in two ways – Arabic and Greek. Do you agree?


If you guys are wondering where I found this maxi skirt, find it here!

I was having a bit of a hair crisis this day, it was too flat and needed some umph. A great way of putting that feeling back in is to accessorise – it always helps! Just a simple coined headpiece really brought this look together, team this with some similar looking earrings and gold/brown bangles and you’re complete.


I opted to keep the makeup quite dewy and golden. Brown and gold for the eyes, topped with lashes along with a nude lip colour.

I used MAC Fix + to create more of that radiant look I was after. However, I found myself topping up on my powder throughout the night, so just be careful if you’re trying to re-create the look! I have also found a new love for the blusher I’m wearing, I’ve used the shade ‘Thrust’ by Illamasqua – it’s the only blusher I’ve come across that really does wonders for my complexion!
