"The shade of lipstick you pick can make or break your entire look."

When it comes to lipstick, you can never go wrong with a Nude and a Red. I feel like these are the two colours you always need in your collection, come rain or shine. The shade of lipstick you pick can make or break your entire look.

My go to daily shade has been Bella, it is a Nude with a subtle hint of pastel Pink. This is a real feminine shade, yet something that suits every makeup look. This lipstick compliments my skin colour and my hair colour, I feel like it really is the perfect Nude for me. I am obsessed with the texture, the lipstick is velvety on the application. It leaves your lips feeling nourished, the lipstick feels so lite on the lips. It's a big fat thumbs up from me.

If I'm feeling a little brave then I reach for Evelyn. It's the perfect corally Red shade. The kind of shade that looks beautiful with a tan, yet still compliments us pale girls skin tones. I personally find it really hard to wear Red shades in the summer, in the winter it's a bit easier, I just pretend I'm rocking the dark red "vampy look" but come summer I want it to look a little softer. I also love this shade just to make me feel put together when I'm in a rush. Literally a bit of bb cream, blush and mascara and a quick swipe of this over the lip and your good to go. 

I genuinely feel like this brand needs more hype. Whilst these lipsticks retail at £18.00, so a little pricey. They are worth it. I feel like they are way up there with the quality you would get from Charlotte Tilbury or Mac. Also, the packaging is gorgeous and really durable which is always a winner.

"Jewellery is the finishing touch to an outfit. It compliments what is already there."

When it comes to our wardrobe we all have our staples. The cami in black, white and nude. A pair of jeans in black and blue, a well fitting dress and a neutral coloured coat. They are all essential and all work beautifully together and apart. So why not have some key pieces of jewellery? After all, jewellery is the finishing touch to an outfit. It compliments what is already there.

For me, there are few very obvious items we should have in our jewellery collection.  

one: T h e  C a s u a l  W a t c h
This is something you can wear day in day out and something that goes with pretty much any outfit. I personally love my brand new classic petite watch from Daniel Wellington with this gorgeous leather strap. It is super comfy for everyday wear. The leather strap is so beautifully designed yet simple enough to go with any outfit.

two: T h e  E v e n i n g  W a t c h
I really love dressing up an outfit with a watch. I think silver, gold or rose gold can really add an extra touch, that something special to an evening outfit. I have kind of cheated a little with this one as it is the same watch as the first one but with its original rose gold mesh strap on. The great thing about Daniel Wellington watches is that they make it easy and affordable to change up your look within a minute. Seriously, it has never been easier and with so many different straps and style to choose from you really can't go wrong. You can shop all Daniel Wellington items here.

I am completely and utterly obsessed with the way this cuff compliments the watch. It looks beautiful with both the mesh and leather strap. It's so dainty and simple but adds so much detail.

"We have probably all been plagued by body image."

They say beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. So why is it I feel the constant need to lose weight, the urge to keep up with trends and quite frankly blend in. It's 2017 and women are strong and independent, yet this urge of weakness overtakes me and I constantly feel compelled to keep up. Each and every beauty product I buy is an attempt at feeling beautiful.

At one stage or another, we have probably all been plagued by body image. Sometimes it's caused by self-doubt and other times it caused by ugly words and ignorant people. For some of us, it only affects us from time to time and for the rest of us it eats us up.

But can we ever really learn to accept ourselves? One simple answer. YES. If you want to and I mean only if you really really want to. (God that sounded like a lyrics from a 90's spice girl song). Never ever, did I dream I would feel somewhat comfortable standing in front of a camera and actually posting, for some this is natural and they look effortlessly beautiful, purely just because they are comfortable with themselves. For me, I would look like Chandelier from Friends, you know the series where he would try and smile in front of a camera and end up looking like a psychopath? Yup that's me, but a short and chubby version.

"I've just started accepting more and more, that I am who I am. All 5ft 3 inches of me, stretch marks, saggy skin and all"

But now, out of nowhere, I've just started accepting more and more, that I am who I am. All 5ft 3 inches of me, stretch marks, saggy skin and all. Some people say it comes with age and I mean to some extent, the older we get the more we learn and the less we care. But in all honesty, to really feel more comfortable in yourself, I believe we must push ourselves so far out of our comfort zone so that we can completely lose sight of what it is that makes us comfortable anymore.

Don't get me wrong, it doesn't happen overnight and it is certainly something I work at every single day but for the most part I am ok with not being stick thin and knowing that some days it is ok to eat a pack of biscuits, all six packets of crisps from a multipack and a Chinese. I've made a vow to not obsess over what I eat and the way I look and sure, from time to time I do but, I'm learning that it is not the end of the world if my jeans are so tight they cut off circulation.

I guess what I'm trying to say is, let's all try and obsess less, live more and quit sweating the small stuff. Sometimes it's ok to feel down in yourself, sometimes it's ok to make jokes at your own expense but it is also ok to feel good about yourself and whether that means going Au Naturale, or If it means covering your face in makeup then so be it. I am so done with caring if people think I wear too much makeup and I am so done with worrying what people think of me, people who love you will love you for you, flaws and all.

So here's to self-loveself-worth, and lots of selfies.
