Recently my style has really changed I used to be very girly but I now just wear whatever I want, I don't follow the crowd and sometimes people don't like what I wear. In this blogpost I'm going to show you who I follow and who I watch to get my outfit ideas.
I get most of my inspirations from Instagram I'm always following new people or celebs that I like the look of, my biggest inspiration is probably Kylie Jenner I love how unique she is and how she throws on pretty much anything and it looks so good. She has a very girly side but also a very sporty look. She is constantly changing her hairstyle and there isn't a look I don't love, she can honestly pull of anything! I love how she'll wear Adidas and Nike just like me and you which means we can find it if we want it.
My next big inspiration is one I actually found through Kylie Jenner and it's the beautiful Pia Mia she has similar style to Kylie but its a bit more out there. She's basically a blonde Kylie and I'm blonde *insert sassy emoji* Her almost statement look is the lumberjack shirt whether she has it on or tied around her waist. I just literally love how both these girls can throw anything together and it just works whether its super girly or completely sporty! I also just wish I had the funds to keep up with them both. At the moment Pia Mia is currently working with Missguided so you can view her SS16 top picks here.

My last inspiration I actually found through YouTube then I followed her instagram and she does a lot more makeup than fashion but she's known on YouTube as Glam&Gore but her real name is Mykie, she does a lot of unique make-up such as Frostbite Elsa which I loved and actually copied for Halloween. The main thing I love about Mykie is how different she looks in all her videos/photos she has such flawless skin and she can literally do any kind of make-up and it suits her. I don't think there is a look/style that Mykie hasn't covered and best of all she displays it all on her YouTube channel so we can follow it and do it ourselves.

I hope you enjoyed this blogpost as its not something I usually blog about! I will be posting more and I have a few more posts lined up for this week and they are fashion related! The reason's I have no reviews at the moment is because money is tight :( The joys of getting a new job and having to adjust to new pay dates.
Thank you for reading!
I love love love these blog posts when I can just sit and tell you anything and everything, so much has happened. January was one of the worst starts to the year for me as I lost my beautiful Nan which meant to be honest the year couldn't get any worse if it tried. I also lost my relationship which I'm not going to go into too much as I respect his privacy and its honestly not that exciting.
After having such a bad start to the year and changing myself completely even after throwing away over half my wardrobe I really just wanted to make this year the best I could even if it meant leaving the old me behind. I decided I needed a career change and this reason is going to sound so silly but one of the reasons I needed to do this was because when working in retail we had a refit and my nan was going to come into shop and come and see it but she didn't ever get the chance too and it broke my heart working there everyday as it was a constant reminder that she didn't see it. I was giving up working there, I loved the people but not the job there was nothing wrong with the job it was the timing, maybe if I hadn't of lost her I'd have stayed longer but I'll never know. I've got a new job and I only started yesterday but so far so good!
DRIVING?!! I'm a nightmare I've had so many driving lessons and even passed my theory test but I've never taken the practical but this year I've booked it and I'm ready! So hopefully I'll be on the road soon and that's literally one of the last things on my list to tick off. Me and my Dad have also given up smoking for over 2 months so we've saved loads of money and feel so much better, I've completely changed my whole life in 5 months and I'm finally starting to feel happy again. I hope she's proud of me, it still feels like yesterday.
I hope you like these blog posts I don't do them often as I don't really have much going on well I try not too but I enjoy writing it all down.
If you don't know what I'm talking about then where have you been for the last 3 months? Since these launched they have been sold out completely making them super rare and selling for ridiculous prices! I managed to get 4 out of the 8 Kylie Lipkits and here is my detailed blogpost on everything you'd possibly need to know.
First things you need to find out is when the website is restocking you can find this out many ways but I found out via Instagram by following @lavishly_luxurious and @kylielipkitupdates I had my notifications switched on for both account so every time they posted I knew about it. These two accounts are both really good to follow as they convert the time zones for you and give you hourly and minute updates which if you're that desperate to get one which I was! When you're preparing for the restock its important to know that you CANNOT pay via paypal so the best thing to do is set up autofill with your credit card details. Also make sure you put a street address in as this sounds silly but I had to amend my order and so have others as it prompts you for a house number but it will let you continue without a street name and in the heat of the moment its easy to click 'Next' and get what you want.
I already had in mind what I wanted to buy I wanted Dolce K and Candy K, I was going to try my luck for Koko K and Posie K. I ended up losing Koko K straight away as it was the newest shade at the time so I decided to go for 22 which is a bit out of my comfort zone but why not. Each lip kit is $29 which converts to roughly £20 which is amazing for two beauty products, my whole order came to around $130 which included the shipping fee's luckily I didn't get any customs charges but you might so please be prepared. After sending my order I received the confirmation email quite quickly as some people had to wait a few days but I got mine that night. It took roughly 12/13 days to arrive.
This was the box that it arrived in which is super cute and makes it feel even more special! Like I said I had no custom fees so I just picked it up from the post office and basically ran home as quick as I could. The boxes do look a bit battered now but I promise you they didn't arrive like that they were perfectly intact but they had spent some time in the bottom of my bags. The one thing I super disappointed that I didn't get was the Kylie Jenner note and I really think you should get one no matter what apparently its completely random but its disappointing that she can't put one in all of them.
Now onto the actual products! I love liquid lipsticks and I love matte so I knew these would be a win for me obviously they are drying as they are a matte shade which means they have no hydration but the longwear of them does it for me and you can always top them up with chapstick which is what Kylie actually says to do. The one downside I found to this product is that they don't have the little stopper thingy which most mascaras/lipglosses have which means you get a lot of product on the applicator which you don't really need. The one thing I do like is these products feel expensive they don't feel like the standard lipgloss, I'm not sure if the casing is glass or posh plastic but it feels a lot nicer. I find that some shades so last longer than other I find that 22 doesn't last as long as Dolce K or Candy K and I haven't fully played around enough Posie K.
My favourite shades are definitely Dolce K and Candy K and by the way for any vegan people out there all shades except Candy K which I'm not 100% sure why are vegan friendly! I think I'll reach more for 22 in the summer as its a very corally red and Posie K is very pink and I love my nudes. I will definitely be going back to buy the other 4 and possibly 5 as she's about to release another shade which looks like a pale nude.
Below I've thrown in some videos/selfies of the shades.
This is the longest blogpost I've done, I hope you've enjoyed it and it's made up for the lack of posts.
Thank you for reading!
