The Iconic Red Lip

Red Lipstick

Red lipstick can sometimes be scary to wear out on a daily basis as it feels very flamboyant and dressy but I’m a strong believer that it can be worn in a casual way. Red lipstick will always look pretty and classy and as we begin to transition into autumn, where darker lips are all the rage, a red lipstick is a good thing to include in your daily makeup routine.

Chanel Inspo

For me, my favourite red lipstick is Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in shade 13. It has a blue undertone which suits my complexion, compared to lots of other red lipsticks which have a more orange tone. It also goes on incredibly smoothly and stays put all day. I love it!

This post is not sponsored by Bourjois I honestly just love this shade and I think you will too.

You can buy your own lipstick here.

Sorry this post seems a bit rushed, I’m going on holiday later this week and I’ve been very busy so this had to be written very quickly. My longer, more extensive posts will be back to normal tomorrow!

Outfit Inspired By Freddy

Freddy is one of my biggest style icons and so I thought I’d wrap up my collection of posts based on her as my style inspiration with an outfit inspired by her pretty, girly style. I headed down to London, where Freddy takes most of her blog photos, to really get the Freddy vibe going and trotted round the capital in this beautiful outfit, which was pink and white of course.

What To Do All Summer

For us Brits the summer holidays are about half way through and elsewhere in the world people have been off school for weeks. Weeks off school sound great (just think of all the lie ins) but all that free time can get boring. It is getting to that point in the holiday where it can be hard to think of things to do to fill up all the time so I thought I’d suggest a few free or very cheap ideas.

Have a picnic

Having a picnic is a cute, cheap idea. Arrange to meet up with friends and tell everyone to bring one piece of food each – soon enough you’ll have a whole picnic spread for next to nothing!

Go for a walk

Going for a walk is a great way to explore your local area as well as being a fab way to get exercise. I personally love going walking in my local park as I’m a fan of walking in nature but you could also go for a walk in a more urban place; go and explore your city!

Go to the cinema

Going to the cinema has been a classic meet up idea for decades and nothing can compare to watching a film with your friends on the big screen. Cinema tickets, if you get offers, can be cheap or alternatively you could set up your own ‘cinema’ at home. Choose a movie, invite your friends round, buy a couple of bags of popcorn and you’re sorted!

Visit another town

There’s often hidden gems mere miles from where we live which we spend our lives unaware of. Research into beautiful places in and around your local towns and cities – you’ll be surprised by what you find; there’s a treasure trove of beautiful places to discover out there.

What’s your favourite thing to do in the summer? Tell me in the comments below!

How To Stay Positive Through Failure

‘Failure is a bruise, not a tattoo’

As some of you may know, today is AS and A Level results day here in the UK and for many people that can be a very stressful time. Teenagers (like me) across the country have been working hard for these results throughout Year 12 and 13 and the day has finally come where we find out what we’ve got. Of course, sometimes we don’t achieve what we hoped and at the time it can be soul destroying, but I’m here to say why failing is not the end of the world.

Although it may feel like it, these exams are not the be all and end all. If you don’t get what you need to get into your course there are always other ways round it – can you choose another course or resit the exams? Don’t immediately jump to the worst conclusion and assume that was your only chance, there is often a chance to try again.

In the long term people honestly won’t care whether you got all A*s at A Level – what they’re going to care about is your work ethic and how you learn from different scenarios. Working on improving yourself after failure shows immense strength of character and potential employers will recognise that. Go out and see if there are other ways of getting into your field of work that doesn’t require A Level results, could you do an apprenticeship or get a job? Do not give up.

Always remember that you are worth more than an A grade. You are worth more than any results. You are worth more than failure. Failure does not define you, you define you. Don’t let this small hiccup hold you back because you are worth so much more than giving up.

If you ever need to talk about anything, feel free to contact me. Don’t suffer alone.

5 Simple Back To School Hairstyles

Hair Products

In the morning before school it can often be a rush and things like doing your hair are obviously not going to be top of the list of things to do for most people. I know the struggle of looking in the mirror debating whether to use your precious couple of minutes making your hair look presentable or actually packing your bag for school. As a self confessed nerd I always tend to make sure I’m ready for school (I’m such a baby I just really don’t want to get into trouble…), but unfortunately that means my hair usually ends up looking like a scarecrow. So, learning from my mistakes, I have collected my top quick, simple and pretty hairstyles to make your morning routine a lot easier.

Tea Party Cakes

It’s no secret that I’m a terrible cook – I can hardly make toast and I once burnt chocolate whilst trying to melt it. However, I’m determined to learn and I thought I’d take you guys along on the journey. I’m starting a new section on my blog called ‘Cooking With Chloe’ where I will show you my culinary creations (oh lord, honestly this could turn out a disaster). I thought I’d start out with something I know I’m pretty good at – decorating cakes (although I’m using packet cake mixture because I’m not that good yet…plus it’s very yummy!). For a tea party cute little cakes are a must and these adorable tea cup(cakes) and flower pot fairy cakes are perfect, read on for instructions on how to make them.
