Hiya! Another book review today, I finished this one up on…yet ANOTHER train journey woo! “You too can have a body like mine” actually isn’t a health and fitness book as you might suspect but it’s actually a coming-of-age type novel by Alexandra Kleeman. The book has a sort of a dystopia theme threaded throughout where the book appears to be written in today’s world but the events which occur would not happen.
The novel is kind of trippy and I didn’t really like or dislike it per say. It’s really confusing haha! What it does succeed to do is make you think and question your life and thoughts which is always a winner in my eyes!
If you’re wondering why TF (excuse my french 😇) is it named “You too can have a body like mine” then lemme tell you. One of the key themes in the book is not necessarily a food vs girl type situation but more that makes you unique. You don’t entirely see it until the end but a lot of the book is a girl grappling with her own identity physically and mentally in a very honest and real way which many women and readers will have experienced before.
Overall, this book is a really interesting read….a bit strange but a good read. I would recommend this especially to women 18-30 as I think primarily it’s aimed at that age group…and remember to THINK!
Next up: The Red Queen
It has just been fashion week incase you didn’t know and one of the biggest things to ‘walk the runway’ was gingham. Now at first I really disliked this – too little house on the prairie for me. But the more I looked at various pieces the more I started to love it! I think the key is is to add the pattern to modern silhouettes to edge it up a bit – ya feel?! Here are some of my favourite inspo photos and some links to some other pieces you can pick up on the high street!
Hiya, I know I know I’ve been crap with the posts but life is craaaazy! Anyway…here’s a midweek motivation to hopefully motivate me to upload some more posts and help you get through hump day!
Hiya! Such a busy busy week this week. Hopefully this post will give you some calming vibes if your week has been hectic too. I have also been super into cooking the past couple of days so I thought why not add some foodie pics into this post! Enjoy (apologies if it makes you hungry but it’s dinner anyway!)
Hiya! Today’s post is going to be all about what’s on my beauty product wish list. If you haven’t noticed already I like the au natural look & I recently discovered some new products to help make all my glowy dreams come true (Also…some of them were used on the Gilmore Girls…..yeah…..)
I saw this in Milan and although I’ve always heard amazing reviews – when I actually tried it in Sephora I fell in love. (Also it’s Rory’s foundation everyone)
I adore the Anastacia brand, their products are so effective and they have a great pigment. I also really love the colours that the brand use they’re so soft and lovely.
This is actually a MAC eyeshadow but apparently it’s a great eyeliner (Lorelai tip…literally the only reason why I trust this is brilliant)
This Bobbi Brown blush palette really compliments the Anastacia glow kit and I think they’d make a great set with lots of different shades to pick from!
Again, I’ve heard rave reviews about these false eyelashes and as a falsies rookie (I applied them successfully once for no occasion, typical.) I figure these are a great place to start! Will be trying soon, as soon as I can find someone to teach me
Lip topper (?)
I saw this on the cult beauty (big fan) instagram account and it looked AMAZING. I don’t really understand it (me with literally everything to do with makeup) but its so pretty
This lipstick is the same brand as the topper so I assume you can’t have one without the other (marketing student falling for marketing….classic). Also the colour again….gorgeous
If you have money to spend….drop it now
Hiya! Today’s post is all about Dior and a couple pieces from their current collection which is absolutely gorgeous might I say. You’ve probably seen pieces on the likes of Bella Hadid (she’s a tad obsessed too) along with other red carpet walkers. Read on for more info and I hope you enjoy!
Hiya! I recently have been really into lip colours, they add a little boost of confidence to any outfit which I’m all about. In this post, I thought I would show ya which colours I’ve been LOVING….read on for more (also ignore my face thank you)
I’m a big fan of Marc Jacobs cosmetics, the quality is so good and the colour pay off is perfection…plus I love the shades. This is one of his lipsticks in “Rei of light”
I’ve never tried an Urban Decay lipstick before but I recently picked up this one in “heartless” and I’m obsessed. It’s so so creamy and doesn’t crack off at all. The bright baby pink is so lovely and really suits blonde hair btw.
Liquid lipsticks have blown up in the last year or so, Too Faced have bought out their own with some pretty unique shades like this coral-y one. I was actually pretty surprised with myself that I picked up this shade and the “heartless” above as I tend to only ever stick to nudes but YOLO amiright (no.)
Anyway I hope this has inspired you to maybe branch out and try something new in your fashion or beauty lives like me!
Talk to ya later
