STYLE CRUSH: Rachel Bilson

Here is another post on what i really created my blog for. It is a style crush, on Rachel Bilson no less! I've always loved Rachel Bilson ever since i tuned into my first episode of the o.c (oh so long ago!) and since then in Jumper and her other films.

I adore her style, its effortless and chic. Her hair is to dye for and she just seems to get it right over and over. She has the preppy-ness of simple outfits but the boho-ness with her gorgeous hair and make-up and key prints. Here are a few photos of this style star:

I personally base most of my style on her, i think you can notice in quite a few of my outfits and my hair is now pretty much the same, aha. I have the identical outfit that she is wearing in the second to last picture. I love how she looks so gorgeous in casual and evening style. She just aces it all.

P.s i ombred my hair, it failed big time at first but it i fixed it and it looks nice now, so i shall show you that in a future post.

Love you all

Product Review... Avon Extra Lasting Mascara.

Heya Sweeties,
 Today I'm going to be doing my first product review on 'Avon Extra Lasting Mascara'. Personally i quite like this mascara, it makes my lashes quite long. I have quite short lashes with not much volume it does show quite a bit of difference. 

This is the difference: on the right is me with no mascara on and on the left 
is me with the mascara on. You can definitively see the definition of the lashes with
the mascara on.

Taking this picture was so hard for some reason i couldn't look at the camera so 
my eyes look vile so i'm sorry about that. But anyway i think it makes my lashes look very voluminous
and long. Quite resembling individual fake lashes i think. 

This is with just one coat of the mascara on and already you can see the mascara defining 
the lashes and giving them extra length.

This is my lashes with no mascara on at all, as you can see they are very thin and short and
i don't have many. So this mascara does really make a difference. I would highly recommend it to
anyone with similar lashes to mine wanting fuller looking lashes. 

I really do love it because i don't like wearing eyeliner and a full face of make up on my off days. 
So a bit of moisteriser, bronzer and some decent mascara works a treat.
Have you guys used it? What do you think?

Colour B4 results...

Hello everyone,

I thought i would do a post about colour b4. As you know before i had like faded reddish, purpley, brown hair which i was getting fed up of. So on a whim when i was shopping in Redditch town centre i decided to grab myself a box of extra strength colour b4. I had to get extra strength because the amount of dye in my hair is shocking . So last night i did it and followed the instructions and i actually LOVE the colour it's like a strawberry blonde, brassy blonde sort of colour. Yes, as my little brother says ginger but i quite like it. Makes me look not so pale and suits my freckles aha.

So here we are:

My hair before (sorry about the stupid pose, me being silly!)

Me with the colour B4 on ( it honestly smells like rotten egg, gross!)

My hair after ( yes, GINGER FO LYF!)

So what do you think? I think i might go to a hairdressers and have highlights put in to just lift the colour a bit but i'm not sure yet, have any of you ever used the product? If so, what would you rate it? I would give it 7/10 lost points for its awful smell!

Kate Beckinsale, Emily Blunt and Sienna Miller: British Beauty's

Having a pretty rubbish day today, it started off really good. Got a really good, nice, new driving instructor. But then my boyfriend is being an *** and wont spend any time with me and always prefer to spend time with his friends. I don't mind him doing that i just wish once in a while he'd spend time with me and be happy, but hey what do you get after a 3 year relationship :/ Do any of you guys experience this?

So to make me feel better i thought i'd do a post on these gorgeous British beauty's and wish i looked like them, lol. Never going to happen but a girl can dream right?
So what do you think?

So what do you think? Who is the best British beauty?

Rainy Day!

Hey darlings!
How naff is the weather today? I'm poorly and the weather just makes me feel worse! England is so annoying sometimes. On the brighter side im going on holiday in two and a half weeks! St Tropez here i come! Got my white bikini, jumpsuits, hats and maxi sorted! Oh the joys of a holiday, going to miss my lovely boyfriend though, hate spending time away but man it'll be worth it :D <3

Here are my five favourite pieces i'm loving at the moment:

These Aldo sandals are perfect for walks along the beach and are in the sale for £29.95 what a bargain?!

I adore this denim playsuit, it has a very Sienna Miller esqe style to it which i adore.

Trilby's are perfect for your messy beach hair and keeping those sun rays off your head!

Pj's are the best for us girlies when we feel like poo! A good bath, hot drink and some snuggly pyjamas make that day end perfectly. Snap these ones up from La Senza.

I am LOVING the dip-dye hair trend, when i have enough money i'm totally going for it! We can have the best of both worlds - the confidence of a brunette and the girl next door vibe of a blonde. I give this a major thumbs up.

Thanks for reading dolls! Hope your all well and look forward to hearing from you!
