The Dungaree Craze Inspired By Alexa Chung

Alexa Chung's style just seems perfect in every way, every time I see a photo of her she looks utterly perfect. Over the years she's been seen sporting a range of styles of dungrees and recently they have become increasingly popular. I especially like how Alexa styles her dungarees with baggy tees, red lips and a pair of loafers. I thought I'd put together a little collage of the best dungarees that are available at the moment for an affordable price. They're great for summer, especially festivals - I think they're a staple piece you must have in your wardrobe!

£85 - Bitching And Junkfood 
£15 - Topshop
£45.50 - Asos
£22 - Boohoo
£38 - Topshop
£20 - Boohoo
£35 - Urban Outfitters 

Do you have some dungarees you just can't live without?

Turn That Frown Upside Down

I stared this blog thinking "I'm going to blog every day", undoubtedly - that did not work out. This past week and a half I have been doing absolutely nothing...well, I've been watching Lost (that kind of counts as nothing.) The reason I began this blog is because I'm a stay at home girlfriend with a devoted, caring and loving boyfriend who provides for me. I'm not just a lazy bum, I can't work or study at the moment due to mental illness. Yea, I'm a nut. I thought that it would give me something to do, something to be involved in and I really do love it. 

Sometimes the life just gets drained out of you, and you have no motivation to do even the most fun things. I haven't seen my family in a month, and have continuously cancelled on my friends when we've made super exciting plans. Having a shower even feels like a struggle. 

It's so easy to continue to hide and pretend everything is ok when life reaches this point, but really - you should do the opposite. Scream it out your window - "I am not ok!" And it's super ok not to be ok. Emotions demand to be felt, and demand to be expressed - if you don't express them, they'll just store up inside you until you explode and they all spill out at once. 

Maybe you feel like you're not good enough in some way, or that you're not lovable/likeable. Whatever the problem is, someone feels the same as you - and you're not alone. If you read this and feel like you need to talk about something, you can always talk to me.

White And Gold - Summer Make Up

Out with the old and in with the new! Literally 99.9% of the time I wear black eye liner, so I decided to swap it for something a bit more fresh and summery. White eye liner is becoming so popular recently I think, along with coloured mascaras (I need to get a blue mascara, oooh.) I applied BarryM's White Kohl Pencil to the bottom water line and smudged it down, and with an eye liner brush I used MUA's Immaculate Collection Palette Shade 14 near my tear duct, along the top like an eye liner and winged it out in a cat like shape. If I was feeling a bit more daring I would have added the same golden shade to my crease, but I'll leave that for another day. 

Here's a list of products I used to make this look:
Maybelline's Dream Fresh BB Cream
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer 
Bourjois' Delice De Poudre Bronzing Powder
Mac's Blush In Buff
Revlon's ColorStay Eyeshadow In Addictive (dark brown shade for brows) 
MUA's Immaculate Collection Shade 14 
BarryM's White Kohl Pencil 
Benefit's They're Real Mascara 
Topshop Lipstick In Maccaron 

Also I got this floral crown in Primark for £3! Bargain, right!? What are your Summer make up looks?
