H&M: OUTFIT IDEAS FOR UNDER £100

White Jumper With Bell Sleeves £17.99

Gingham Skirt With Ruffled Hem £17.99

Suede Ankle Boots With Buckle £34.99




Total: £70.97


A classic monochrome look that will carry you from season to season. For colder days add tights and a leather jacket. For warmer days just wear it as it is.

Gingham is a big trend for this Spring Summer (2017) and the ruffle hem on the skirt is another big trend, so it just works so well within one garment.

The bell sleeve on the jumper works well, and this jumper can be carried throughout the whole year, as it is white is it versatile enough to wear in summer as well as winter. 

Again the ankle boots can be worn from season to season, they are a classic and they are pretty much a timeless piece. Everyone needs a pair of classic black ankle boots and these are a great example.

Best Beauty Buys: Superdrug

Here are a few of my all time favourite products from Superdrug:




This lip balm is great!
I put this on every night before bed and it never fails to keep my lips moisturized, soft and smooth.






This is my go-to everyday concealer.
For only £2 this is a complete bargain!
And it's great for under the eyes!
I have found that if you apply too much foundation and too much powder on-top of this then it does crease, so I just make sure that I use as little as I can around my under eye area.








 
This brow kit is great for getting a perfectly groomed brow.
You get a clear wax as part of the palette but I use a brow gel instead.
I use my brow gel to wet the hairs and then apply the powder on-top, this means you use less product but get an intense colour.
I then brush through with a clean spoolie brush to remove any excess powder and make sure the hairs are all still in place.
Then I gently run my brow gel through them again to lock in the colour and keep the hairs secured in place.
It also comes with a tiny pair of tweezers which are great for plucking all those tiny stray hairs.
There is also a mirror inside the palette so you can get an up close look at your brows and make sure they are as perfect as they can be!
 Only £2.99 and it is the best brow product I have used so far.

Primark Outfit #1


Hello there, 

I have gotten back into the swing of things and this is something in which I hope I can continue and keep it up.


Today's post is focusing on a few items from Primark that I think would work well within an outfit... 


Striped Shirt - £12
Ripped Jeans - £17

Linked Hoop Stud Earrings - £2
Black Clutch - £5


Black Crossover Open Toe Mule - £12


 Total £48

I can't believe the total spend for the outfit comes in under £50, but then again it is Primark! Primark are becoming so fashion forward and it is great to see. Some of their pieces are starting to channel a ZARA-like feel to them and for only a fraction of the price, which is absolutely amazing and so exciting if you love fashion but are on a budget! Primark have become so good with their clothing choices that it can be hard to distinguish between a Primark garment and a Zara garment for example.
 
 Some people are against Primark as they think the clothing is of lesser quality than other high-street fashion stores but this doesn't seem to be the case any more, if anything other stores are using cheaper fabrics but making their garments more expensive therefore tricking you into thinking it is better quality just because it costs more, but it could be make of the exact same fabric as a garment from Primark. 

My favourite piece from this outfit choice is the shirt, I just love it, I think it is so on trend right now and a statement wardrobe must-haves that will last. 

The jeans are also a total bargain and although I find they wear out rather quickly compared to other jeans they always seem to fit me better than jeans from other stores. 

Again the earrings, clutch bag and shoes are all wardrobe must-haves!

The shoes are especially on trend right now, although I personally am not very fond of the open toe mule style, I have seen these a lot recently, so who knows! I may end up wearing them just because they are in fashion, because we all have certain garments we said we would never wear and now look at us! Or things from trends in the past that you used to laugh at, you are now wearing, so don't say you won't, because you might!

I would say that this outfit would be suitable for a night out on the town with your friends, going out for a couple of drinks or going for dinner. 
This outfit would also be perfect for a date too. 


You could always make it more casual by swapping the clutch bag for a backpack and the mules for trainers, if that's more your thing.

H&M Outfit #1

Hey guys,



Here I have selected a few pieces from H&M which I think would work well together as an outfit...


Hooded Sweatshirt - £24.99
Black/Silver Choker £2.99
5 Pack of Striped Socks - £8.99

Powder Pink Trainers - £17.99



 Total: £54.96

 
This outfit is a casual outfit, suitable for chilling out at home or popping to the shops. It is comfy and casual. The hooded sweatshirt dress is a big trend right now and is being worn by the likes of Rihanna and Kylie Jenner. The powder pink trainers just brighten up the outfit ever so slightly, to stop it being all black (which isn't a bad thing, all black outfits are great!) but it is sometimes nice to have a bit of colour. The choker would be optional but I feel it just adds something extra to the outfit overall, making it a little less casual.
