My Top 10 Shoes

Hello my lovelies, hope you're all having a blessed week and enjoying life wherever you are

I was having a rummage through my stuff and I realised that I have way too many shoes/ in a stupid amount...maybe not as bad as my sister but it's pretty embarrassing...the worst part is I think I only wear the same 5 pairs of shoes/courts/trainers on rotation....which led me to this top 10 list of my shoesicles (and trainers/courts)....."Why have a list of 10 if you only wear 5??" I hear you ask.
.......Because some of the others need to feel loved too...

So, without further ado....*DRUMROLL PLEASSSSEEEE* 

Coming in at a slightly disheartening number 10 are...ok I'm not doing this gameshow countdown narrative  lark....I'll just stick to a numerical list (Least favourite to favourite btw)

Just in case you are wondering why there are no heels here it is because in all honesty I think I own about 3 1/2 pairs of heels (one went missing)...and that is purely because I just can't walk in them...if I could walk in heels without looking like a dude with a broken ankle then I would but I don't see that happening any time soon...maybe I'll start practising around my house.......maybe.

Hope you liked my list anyway, what's your favourite?

Simple 2 Minute Summer Make-Up Looks

Oh haaii guyss....So, feeling full of energy after starting work at 7am with pretty much zero hours sleep, was supposed to nap when I got in but my neighbours are having a nice ol' shindig outside (it sounds really fun, not even being sarcastic either)so I thought I'd do a nice make-up post.
The weather has been pretty epic over the past few days so thought as well make it a Summer orientated post; also, it's so hot I doubt anyone will want to smother themselves in heaps of ye olde make-ups so I tried not to go OTT. 

Here are a few simple looks that took about 2 minutes each (true story bro...maybe if I can discipline myself enough with this blog I'll make a video of my everyday routine) 

Start off with  blank canvas

Products used: 1. Collection 2000 Cream Puff #3 - Fairy Cake
                           2.L'oreal Paris Super Liner Carbon Gloss - Black
                           3. Bourjois Liner Effect Mascara (I didn't actually use this in the end but it was already in the shot)
                          4. L'Oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes- Extra Black
                          5. No7 Metallic Eye Pencil #4 - Gold
                          6. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick #477 - Black Cherry
                          7.  Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner #018 - Addiction
                          8. Rimmel Exaggrate Lip Liner #063 - Eastend Snob
                          9. Sleek Divine Eyeshadow palette #594 - The Original 
(I also used a Barry M Lip Paint #54 - Peach, but that was last minute so I didn't take a pic) 

Look 1: "Barely there": Everyday look
Products used: 1, 4, 5, 3

Look 2: "Doll eyes": Pretty much the same as barely there but more emphasis on the eyes

Products used: 1, 4, 5, 7, Barry M #54

Look 3: "Cherry": More dramatic but can still wear everyday, or if you're going to a festival

Products used: 1, 2, 4, 5, 6

Look 4: "Go Green": Ok this look was actually me messing about but it kind of worked, might do another post with eye looks using my sleek palettes at some point

Products used: 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 9

Hope ya'll like these looks, sorry for the ridiculously cheesy names for them, thought it was a good idea at the time...starting to think otherwise....Do you have a favourite look?
