For The Love of Smock| Catch Up

Fedora- Topshop, Smock- c/o Fashion Union
A bit of a strange different post from me today, but I am a firm believer of "if i'm thinking it, then someone else must be" so here goes ey...

With Summer fast approaching, and a distant light at the end of the tunnel beginning to show, that light being the "no more education ever again for the rest of your life", light;  I thought it was a pretty good time to sit and reflect, which if you didn't know, is code for PANIC!

I felt this way not so long ago around Christmas time, a little bit deflated, unmotivated and in a complete state of disarray. I'm completely torn between really wanting to do well with the final leg of my studies and then wanting to sack it all in and go cry into a BIG tub of Ben & Jerrys. I'm sure many of you have felt this way before and quite possibly many of you are going through it with me right now.
I don't know about you, but I know I could do with a good bout of encouragement from pretty much anyone right about now, so heres to you lot, my "Cyber" friends, whatever it is you're working towards right now, YOU CAN DO IT.

So yes, just in case I appear a wee bit MIA in the next few weeks, now you know.
I have a number of posts planned and some to be scheduled in, but they may be few and far between, from now until May 16th/Getting my life back.

Summer's almost here and boy am I ready for it!

A pop of pink

Sweatshirt- c/o Missguided, Trousers- Next @ McCarther Glen, Sunglasses- Primark, Pouch- c/o Ex High Street, Boots- c/o Ark
I found these trousers in a Next Outlet shop of all places for a measley £2, I grabbed and paid for them without trying them on and boy am I glad I did, they're the perfect fit and I am absolutely loving the seventies vibe they give off, my second favourite era after my beloved 1960's!

Teamed with this fabulous cropped scuba sweatshirt by Missguided and these killer cleated boots by Ark, all finished off with a pop of pink!
This fabulous hot pink, pony skin pouch is by Asos, but I was treated to it by a fabulous company; Ex High Street, they have some seriously amazing pieces by our favourite high street brands, so do go and have a nosey if you fancy some bargains!

Collection Work The Colour Eye Brow Kit*
Brows have been having a bit of a moment of late and it's something i've been aiming to achieve for a while now.
Finally my brows have got to that intentional "bushy" stage and since then i've been on the hunt for the ideal products to preen and perfect the Cara Brow with!

In steps Collection with their incredible Work The Colour Eye Brow Kit. A mini palette of three different shades, all of which are great for mixing to get the perfect shade for you, a slanted brush to ensure precision and a clear brow mascara to set the powder in place.

It's a really great palette and one I now swear by; i've often found with other products that they don't seem to last and by the end of the day, my brows look a wee bit crispy, which is not a look to be desired. The collection Work The Colour Eye Brow Kit, ensures a full and fluffy brow all day long and I cannot recommend this palette enough.
