Outfit + Lashes


Evening all! x

As described in my last post I have been totally mojo-less when it comes to style whilst under all my uni stress. I am determined to claw myself slowly from my pit of despair, so I opted for my beloved H! by HeHo jumpsuit today. Seeing as it was sub-zero (the snow returneth!), I wore my fuzzy cat cardigan, which wasn't very flattering but it did the job of keeping me toasty! I am so bad at winter layering. Well, I just don't really have the tools. I really need some great knitwear in my life. Will have to keep an eye out in the sales.




[Soz the pics are a bit gloomy! Blame the snow clouds! And my zilchio editing skills.]

I also wore some fake lashes, which I haven't done in yonks. I have been having no luck putting them on recently, even my favourite Ardell lashes (follow the link for my Tuesday tip guide to false lashes!). That was until Eylure 101's entered my life. I was wandering past the lash aisle in Boots yesterday and the 'Buy one get one half price' offer caught my eye. I picked two pairs of these up for £7.50 in total! A spare pair is always good when you have a cat that literally won't think twice about eating them if you leave them on the coffee table. Lashes, spiders. Tomato, tomahto in Roxy's world.



(Make up: Revlon Photoready foundation in Shell, Eyeko Fat Balm in Toffee on lips and cheeks)

What I love about these is that the lashes are symmetrical rather than winging out at either end, if this makes sense? I never knew this criteria was important to me, but I have noticed in photos when I'm wearing lashes sometimes they go all curly and crap at the corners. You can kind of see it here. They were also super easy to apply. They don't look quite as natural as my Ardell ones, but I did get a plethora of lovely comments on them at work today, so that's good.

I'm starting to see the signs of ageing on my eyes now. The dreaded family heirloom of saggy eyelids is making itself apparent. Cheerz mum. So I have decided to make mega plucking (which I did tonight) and fake lashes more of a regular occurrence to lift my confidence (and hopefully eyelids) a bit.

I'm working 12-4 tomorrow, then am going to have a housework marathon so I can just relax and get ready for christmas. I might attempt some recipes from Cupcake Couture too. Also, we're going Turkey shopping on Monday! My mum gave us a couple of M&S vouchers she hadn't used so we're going all out! Shame the rest of the meal will probably be Asda smart price, but you win some you lose some!

Hope you're enjoying le weekend! ♥

  12. Gorgeous as always! The cardie that you say is not very flattering is lovely! And I'd kill for your eyebrows. I love a perfectly shaped brow and yours are perfic! Do you fill them or are they naturally full? See I'm obsessed! I always end up overplucking! Beautiful lashes too. xxx

  17. Totally agree about the 101s! I've been wearing them lately too and they're so gorgeous on. Great for making my eyes look awake when I feel like a zombie. I don't think they look too fake on you either x

  18. You look truly fantastic with those lashes, not that you don't look so without them haha. The jumpsuit is great too. I'm like you with winter layering, which makes me pretty happy that it is currently summer where I live.

    Love your blog.

  19. I think this is a great outfit- and the cardie goes well :) I get like that some times though, don't know how to dress & just defaltted about even thinking about what to wear or how to put an outfit 2gether. I'm sure you'll get there again though- and goin by this, you are on your way, you look gorgeous.
    The lashes are gorgeous- I usually stock to Girls Aloud ones, but I really need to venture out.
    I am starting to hate my eyelids too (moan, moan, moan) My mum has acually aged VERY well, but its def her eyelids that are droopy- as I think mine will soon be
    You look gorgeous xx

  27. You look beautiful as ever (: I love those lashes! They look fun but without straying too much from the whole natural look. Oooh, M & S vouchers? Lovely. I'd love to be able to do a 'big shop' in there. Although, I've already got a little bit of Christmas podge on the go so maybe not.
