OOTD | Hedonia

Scarf - Primark
Leather Jacket - Bershka
Boots* - Bank

As much as I love oxblood and deep berry colours for A/W, my heart will never stray far from the monochrome trend. Hedonia are on point with this dress, it offers the perfect contrasting colours, and I absolutely adore the mesh overlay skirt which adds volume and shape to the bodice. It's probably my favourite dress ever, it makes for the perfect day look with a grungy leather jacket and a super thick primark scarf, only £7 by the way.. bargain! I know that this dress would look amazing for a night out too in either the winter or summer with some chunky heels and gold accessories, it's got a stunning cross over body at the back too which definitely makes a statement look. It's the most perfect versatile dress, and I really do feel like a princess in it! If this dress wasn't perfect enough Hedonia also sell this dress in the opposite colours so a black bodice and white mesh skirt, which is part of Hedonias new autumn/winter stock which I strongly recommend a peek at!

I hope you all have a brilliant weekend! What are you all up to? What do you think of this dress? Do you like this outfit? Have you heard of Hedonia before?

Winter footwear Wishlist

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6
Long hot bubble baths (lush of course), candles, snow, hot chocolates, films, Christmas. Winter really cannot get any better for me, not forgetting the amazing footwear that comes with it. Winter offers so many different styles than summer and I am currently besotted with all of the above!

Fluffy sandals are just the perfect, dainty and feminine heels, I'm currently toying over a colour to wear to my graduation, but the height of these is debatable. I am tempted to buy a plain pair and attach the marabou myself, anyone interested in a DIY post on this?! Boots in general are my favourite type of shoes for winter, long, ankle, thigh length, I'm not too bothered. I fell in love with this long pair of ASOS boots though after seeing them on a few bloggers and they look like the perfect fit, and not as if they will fall down all the time. Lastly you need at least one pair of flats in your life for winter if you can bear the cold exposed feet, I'm always partial to a bit of leopard print and its a huge trend on accessories this winter. Last but not least is this incredibly sparkly pair of brogues, I just want these because, well sparkles! Whats not to love?!

What do you think of my picks? Which pair is your favourite? What are your favourite shoes to wear in the winter?

OOTD | The blanket cape

Top - Allsaints
Blanket cape* - Britfash
Fur scarf - Topshop
Jeans - Primark (DIY rips)
Boots* - Bank
It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of the blanket cape this season. I also featured a camel one in my LFW day 2 post. They are just the cosiest type of thing that can easily be thrown into any outfit as an extra cover up, perfect for the crisp cold weather. Britfash have an amazing selection, I'm really fond of their tartan and plaid patterned ones especially. I of course had to pick the cape with the least colour, I love greys and blacks a lot at the moment, mostly because it can be worn with many more outfits than those which are just bold colours. The perfect autumn outfit for me really is ripped jeans, a chunky knit jacket or cape, fur and some chunky boots, who agrees? Blanket capes really are the perfect accessory to have this winter, what are you waiting for!

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend! Do you like blanket capes? Do you like this outfit? How would you wear one?

Makeup Revolution hamper prize!

Makeup revolution has hit the beauty world by storm, an affordable, beautiful and well crafted beauty brand. Despite reading endless reviews on their products and admiring how pretty the items are I had yet to buy into the brand. Probably due to the fact that I rely so much on buying in stores like Boots where I can see the product first, my Superdrug also don't stock them. Last week I couldn't believe it when I found out that I had won London Beauty Queen makeup revolution hamper competition! To say I was over the moon was an understatement. Then a few days later this amazing hamper of goodies worth over £50 arrived at my door and boy was I excited to explore!
With so many gorgeous products in the hamper I wanted to give you a low down on all the different bits. I will then do individual reviews of these so you can see them swatched properly, I think it would have made this post very long else! Nevertheless I think from these pictures you can appreciate how stunning and beautifully packaged they are.
Blushing hearts
Out of the whole hamper, if I had to pick these would definitely be my favourite products, solely on looks. The packaging is flawless and could definitely be mistaken for Too Faced products, another brand that I absolutely love. Packaging probably is the make or break for me when buying new products rather than how good the product actually is, I'm sure we all do it! The compact sizes of these are great too, I have loved using the sleek contour palette for the last year so I'm ready to give these a go now! A full review of these blushing hearts will follow in the next few weeks.
I actually prefer to use lip glosses over lipsticks as I find them much easier to apply and you don't have to put so much care into it. I absolutely adore all of these colours. The nudes are my favourites and the darker berry type of tones are perfect to wear right now too!
What I especially love about these is the unique shape. I've never seen something quite like it but I think these are much better to store in bags and it goes without saying that the packaging of them is just genius!
I love makeup go palette £6.49
This eye palette is so dreamy, not only does it contain eyeshadows but also a contour blush, bronzer and highlighter! This will definitely be the type of palette which is perfect for taking away on holidays as it is multi use. 
I love a good old bronzer, it's definitely the item I use all year round because I like to have that slightly tanned kind of look. I have used so many different brands of bronzers in the past so I'm looking forward to seeing how this matches up to that.
I've been using the benefit browzings for the past 2 years and I literally can't believe there is still loads left! I like how this one offers a few different shades for brows though as it's really hard to decide on what colour when you just see what it looks like in a shop. This little tube of tint for your eyebrows has really intrigued me as I have never used anything like this, it might be worth checking out some reviews first, I don't want to use too much of it at once, it might be a disaster haha!
Such beautiful packaging again. Thumbs up from me Makeup Revolution!
Seriously, this is the most stunning eye palette I have ever owned to date. The assortment of brights and neutral hued tones is fab. Looks wise they look like really rich and pigmented colours so I can't wait to have a play around with this set. The mirror with the names of the eyeshadows is also a really good help and I like that it comes with an eyeshadow brush too.
Maybe I'm boring but the only eye shadows I tend to currently wear are neutral tones and earthy colours so when I opened this palette and saw the collection of colours I fell in love. At first glance it could even be mistaken for the Charlotte Tilbury palettes which have a similar assortment of colours to this.
The palette also comes with a nude lipstick to match the beautiful eye shadows. This is the perfect day time look for me as I adore nude lips. Can't wait to give this a proper test!

What can I say, once you've experienced Makeup Revolution in your life you never go back! I hope you love all of these products as much as I do, as I have said I will be reviewing these in full over the next few weeks so look out for that! I'm so excited to give these products a proper test out now.

Do you like makeup revolution products? Which products are your favourites? What product would you like to test out? Do you like the packaging?
