What I was loving in 2017

2017 has been full of ups and downs but one thing that has remained that same is my search for products and items that have genuinely changed my life, well maybe not changed my life but definitely products that have influenced me in some way through the year. You might recognise some of them.

I would love to know what you’ve been loving.


Naked Heat Palette: A warm toned lovers dream. As soon as I saw the press release pictures of this pallete I knew I had to have it. Every single colour in this pallete was reaching out to me. I have never been so immersed in a palette. The quality of the shadows is amazing and they blend out like a dream. I was only a warm toned eye shadow fan before but now I’m an addict.   

Newly Naked: Urban Decay realeases

Clinique Pretty Easy Liquid Eyeliner: 2017 was the year that I fell back in love with liquid eyeliner, this was all down to one product; The Clinique Pretty easy eyeliner. This eyeliner really is a miracle worker. Not only does it have the lasting power, all day and all night. Itt is a solid black colour, not a ashy black this is pure black, perfect for creating the 60’s cat flick or being perfect for a cut crease. It has a fine nib and perfect to build up your wing size and leaving the flick to cut a b*tch.


GWA Lashes: The brand in general ‘Girls With Attitude’ have changed my lash game. I used to hate wearing false lashes but I am slowly falling back in love with them since trying the fantasy lashes. They are so easy to apply and don’t irritate when wearing them. Honestly if you are looking for lashes on a budget try these out.

L’oreal Brow Pomade: Brows that wow!! This pomade has transformed my brow game and saved my bank account. Its consistency glides beautifully and is so precise when wanting that perfect brow. Its been a staple in my makeup routine and what’s even better is it comes with a tiny angled brush.

Maybelline Colour sensational Lip-gloss; Its fair to say that lip-gloss has become one of my favourite makeup items of 2017. This lip-gloss has been my saviour I have been on the search for the perfect nude lip-gloss for since I can remember and now I have found the one. Its the perfect amount of pigment coinciding with the gloss. although one thing is the same with the gloss, never wear it on a windy day, unless you like hairs on your lips.

Loreal creamy Cleanser: Featured in : Dull to Glow // Skincare  Ever since I ran out of my Emma Harding Cleansing Balm I had been looking for a cleansing balm that could live up to the high end expectations. This really does make you look like a glowing goddess whilst removing all the dirt off your face. leaving you fresh faced and flawless. This cleanser is perfect for all skin types, a must have.


Nike 97s: I love Trainers. I am officially a sneaker head, Hype beast. Nike 97s have been the trainers that I just have fallen more and more in love with this year not only are they so sleek and classic but all the colour ways that have been bought out this year have been stunning. They are so comfy and look good with any outfit, personally I love wearing them with my Camo trousers.

Camo Trousers: If you know me you will know my love for anything camouflage is something that cant be broken. My addiction to camouflage trousers is a special relationship. They not only our a festival and rave statement but also a everyday statement for me. I love how unique and stylish they look, within the streetwear industry these have become a statement and I don’t see that going anytime soon. I in fact wore these to crepe city, take a look here. Creps, Camo and Taking on the Big City

Popper trousers: Popper trousers are such a throwback aren’t they but I cant get enough of them. Perfect for both day and night these trousers really do make a statement and this year I have made sure I have had a few outings in mine, showing the occasional bit of leg on a night out… oi oi! To find out more: POP it like its hot

Teddy bear dressing gown: If there’s a way to get to my heart apart from buying me a sausage dog *hint hint* it is to buy me a dressing gown. I got this teddy bear dressing gown for my birthday and yes it is already m favourite thing, I wear it all the time and that’s no exaggeration. I have a video of me walking to Cambridge station in the snow (after a all nighter) with it on. It s just too cute to not mention I my favourites, everyone needs one. It also looks super adorable when you’re getting ready for a night out.

Fila Sherpa Jacket: Fluffy jackets have become a staple for me, I love how simple they are but make you feel so cosy. This FILA Sherpa jacket is one I picked up from Selfridges and it has become an everyday staple for me. When I say ive worn it everyday I am not lying, I am obsessed!
