Last month was a bit of an overwhelming one as months of hard work, sleepless nights and tears boiled down to the moment when I handed in my Final Major project. I moved out of my student accommodation in Epsom, Surrey, and said goodbye to the University of the Creative Arts upon completing my foundation year. Five weeks later and I’m back at home, catching up with friends and family whilst working in a beautiful cafe right on the beach – lovely.
In this mild weather we’ve been having the leather jacket made a strong re-appearance frequently over the past month. I’ve really been enjoying light cami tops with jeans and a leather jacket just makes the perfect cover up.
I’ve never had a pair of River Island jeans before and oh have I been missing out! I have a friend who seems to live in jeans from RI and I finally felt the need to investigate after returning home from uni to realise that the majority of my jeans were in actual fact splattered in paint. I opted for the Molly pair – they’re so comfortable and the fit is so complimentary too. These certainly won’t be the last pair of RI jeans I buy!
Pale pink is one of my favourite colours to wear at the moment and this subtly sized necklace from New Look makes such a lovely combination with cami tops and lower necklines. The simple repetitive geometric shape keeps the necklace easy enough to style with any print and pattern.
I feel like I’ve been on the search for a good, long lasting powder that matches my skin tone forever now. I finally tried out the Max Factor creme puff pressed powder after religiously using their liquid foundation for some time now. I will certainly be needing to buy this one again sometime soon!
Whilst I was at it with the powder, I also decided to try out a different bronzer for contour as well as I was finding my previous bronzer to appear slightly orange. I’ve heard so many good things about Soap and Glory makeup products and I am so backing those all the way with this bronzer! It’s long lasting and such a lovely, complimentary colour.
Fabric dyes played a large contributon towards my final major project of my foundation year and I really loved the colours of these Brusho dyes. Dyeing fabric by hand is such a fun way to add colour to a fabric and the prints that can be created are endless – it’s actually difficult to create the same ones twice! For a washed effect, you can mix the powder with water, or for a more intense appeal lightly shake them over the wet fabric or paper.
