February Favourites

6 comments


I have been wearing this COS tee so much the past month, it's super soft and easy to just throw on. I have been loving COS in general actually, it's just a shame my bank balance does not like it.

I brought this night cream on a bit of a whim, I needed something because my skin has been feeling quite dry and dehydrated. This isn't an all singing, all dancing type product but worked perfectly for the reasons I needed it and it smells good too which is a bonus.

This perfume was a gift at Christmas and it's the perfect spray for my handbag. It smells like a Bounty chocolate!!!

This is the month I really fell in love with Nars, I splurged on a few bits. This foundation being my favourite. It's the best match I have ever found for my skin tone and it's so dewy and makes my skin look really healthy.

I read about the Botanics Eye Make-up Remover in a magazine and the review sounded really good and I have to say, I completely agree. It's a bottle of solution and oil which you shake to mix and then apply to a cotton pad, it's brilliant at removing all my makeup in one swipe on each eye and I have actually found that around my eye area it seems so much softer.

The perfect Kylie Jenner-esque colour and it's suprisngly long last considering it cost under £5, I have been pairing this with simple make up all month and it's such a good change to my normal reds.

I have loved using this shadow stick as a base colour and then blending the outer part out with my finger, it's the easiest way to create a bit of a smokey eye.

Have you tried any of these or do you have any favourites that I should try out? Leave me a comment and let me know.

Lots of love, Jyn xoxo

OOTD - The Casual All Black One

7 comments


Trousers - Mango via ASOS, Roll-neck - ASOS 

I really wasn't sure about these trousers at first but I actually won't take them off at the moment. Not only are they super comfy but they're a good change to wearing my black jeans allllll the time. I can't remember if I mentioned in my last post about them but I cannot wait for the sun so I can be re-united with my Birkenstocks, it's been a long old wait and even though I have just a few more months to wait, you can guaranteed the first sign of sun and they will be making an appearance with these trousers. For now though, I have been wearing these trousers with my Adidas Gazelle's or my slip on skater-type shoes to dress them down a bit. It's a really casual look that I have been loving, I think the more time I spend on Pinterest (i may or may not sit on the bus every day looking at it) I find that what I am wearing becomes a lot more casual. How are the girls on there soooo effortless? Does anyone else use Pinterest?

Hope you had a lovely Valentines, I spent the day dressed like a teenage boy, eating a lot of food. Sometimes, it happens….

Lots of love, Jyn xoxox

OOTD - THE WHITE AND BLACK ONE

11 comments
This weekend has been rather productive, I had Friday off work which is always a good start to a weekend, I went out for my mom's birthday, I got my brows did at the Benefit Brow Bar and I had my second driving lesson with my new instructor (my one of three), I have got to be the worlds worst driver, he keeps laughing at me because I squeal when other cars get to close too me… I will pass, one day.



Shirt & Bag - ASOS
Trousers - Mango via ASOS
Shoes - River Island, similar here 

I couldn't possibly look more miserable in these photos, I am not sure whats going on there.. I am actually in an awfully good mood, much of this is because I am streaming the new Peace album and it's bloody good. I may be biased because they are fellow Brummies but either way, if you haven't heard them, go have a listen and a dance and thank me later. Also, I don't think I have ever had my hair up on Bambi Legs, there is a first for everything! I clearly spend too much time on Pinterest because I saw a girl with her hair like this and now this is a firm favourite hairstyle (if you can even call it that), it means that I don't have to straighten it and subsequently get 15 minutes extra in bed..

Have a lovely week guys, lots of love, Jyn xoxoxo

D RING TROUSERS

9 comments

Trousers - Mango via ASOS
Top - Pull & Bear
Bag - ASOS
Trainers - Adidas

I have wanted d-ring trousers since seeing a photo on pinterest a while back so snapped these Mango ones up quicker than anything. I love that they are high waisted but I got them in a size 6 and they are actually slightly big on me, I have the body of a child, hmf. I also had my eye on the Topshop ones which are here but the material was a little iffy..??

Anyway, this is my lazy Sunday at the pub outfit. I can't wait for it to be summer so I don't have to pair every outfit with a midi coat and I can pull those much loved Birkenstocks from the back of my shoe drawer and rejoice in ugly shoe happiness. But for now. Adidas are prevailing and I am totally okay with that. I can't decide whether or not too buy these next. My friend said they remind her of K-Swiss? Remember the days of the flip tongue, pure lols.

I hope you had a lovely start too your week, lots of love. Jyn xoxo

01 - JANUARY FAVOURITES

9 comments

Trainers - Adidas Gazelle's - I got these around Christmas time and it's okay that they are trainers because Queen Alexa Chung owns them. They have practically been surgically attached to my feet throughout January.

Ciate Nail Polish in Sharp Tailoring - This grey polish has been my go to nail colour, it goes with every outfit and doesnt chip at all. I got this in a Ciate calendar and as soon as this mini is empty I am definitely going to repurchase the full size polish.

Benefit's Stay Don't Stray Eyeshadow Primer  - I needed something which would keep my eyeshadows from sliding off my lid's, especially for nights out and this has been the answer. I guess in hindsight it is nothing but a glorified concealer but it does work and thats really all I wanted. It also makes matte colours appear less chalky which is a pet peeve of mine.

Nuxe Lip Balm (red edition) - I won't bang on about this lip balm as I know everyone owns it but I know understand why, I picked it up in Marks & Spencers and it's saved my chapped winter lips and made them soft and feel loved again.

Rimmel's Exaggerate Lip Pencil in Obsession - I am obsessed with this liner, it's a cross between a burgundy// purple// red and it's perfect for nights out. Having olive skin it is the hardest to find red/ burgundy colours that suit my skin but I loved this one, if anyone knows a lipstick shade similar then leave me a comment and let me know because I wish to own it… I know it's a complete dupe for Mac's Soar which has been sold out for months….

Bra - via ASOS - I buy ALOT of lingerie and have an extensive collection but I just can't stop.. this is my latest addition. It's burgundy, caged and fabulous. Whats not too love?!

Urban Decay's Naked Basics Palette - 1 highlight which is perfect for the brow bone and fine easy to wear neutral matte shades, you really don't need any other colour for the perfect every day smokey eye. Also, I love that the packaging is so small, I carry this in my handbag, usually so I can top up if I am going out after work.
