My mighty return and outfit of the day

Hey guys!

So my exams are officially over (YAY) which means I am able to get back into relax mode! I hope that all of your exams went okay if you had any in the last couple of months, I know it is such a relief to get them out of the way! 

I cannot believe that it is nearly the end of my first year at university so in two weeks I will be moving out of halls and back home for the summer. The next two weeks are going to be extremely busy for me as I have got onto a volunteering week which is 9-6 Monday-Friday (my days haven't been that long for years) and then I obviously need to pack and then there's a week of celebrations for the end of the university year! 

Anyway, enough about my life... As you probably know, the UK had a week of absolutely GORGEOUS weather during my exam period, so I thought I'd show you one of my outfits. The day was lovely, so despite having a lot of revision to do, me and some friends sat outside all day with pimms and cider and just relaxed with our books... it was heaven! 

So here is what I wore...

Crop top - Topshop
Black vest - New Look
Shorts - Vintage

Earrings - Present from a friend

Nails - Asda polish in 'Sunset Orange'

Shorts - Vintage

Shoes - New look 

I thought this look was quite cute, girly but really casual and not too fussy! I found it difficult to know what to wear because it was pretty hot but not hot enough to show too much flesh.

Do you like this outfit? 
What's your 'go to' outfit in the summer time?

Hannah's questions

1. What is the beauty/make-up product you use the most?
Moisturiser! I use moisturiser all over my body twice a day because my skin tends to get really dry. On my face I use either my oilatum or cetaphil. And my body moisturiser at the moment is one from bath & body works (a friend bought it for me), it's called 'sea island cotton' and it smells like summer!

2. Share one beauty tip
So this is a beauty tip that my mum always nags me about and I never do it enough but drinking water! I know it makes a huge difference to your skin and how you feel in general.

3. What is your favourite thing to blog about?
I enjoy blogging about random events that may have happened - one of my favourite posts is when I blogged about my nightclub romance here... I like to get your advice and opinions on stuff like that :) - Those of you who read that post, the guy never came back so it was obviously not meant to be *sob*

4. What is your favourite thing about blogging?
I really love just getting my thoughts 'out there', I think it's good to have somewhere to share your opinions because people I know often get bored of me talking about makeup and rambley bits and bobs! Also I love having my own little projects to do... if you can call it a project. And you guys are so lovely!

5. What is your most expensive beauty/ make up product?
I'm not going to lie, I don't own any high end makeup so my most expensive beauty item are probably my GHD's - even though they recently broke... so I'm going to have to buy some new ones, bad times.

6. What is your most inexpensive beauty/make up product?
This is probably vaseline. I have rekindled my love for the rose tinted vaseline (link)... it's great for spring as it adds a subtle hint of colour and is obviously super moisturising.

7. What item of make up are you currently lusting after?
I really want to try a chanel foundation, do you guys have any opinions/recommendations?

8. Is there a celebrity in particular who's make up style you love? If so, who is it?
Fearne Cotton, just look at her...

Who wouldn't love her style?! I also think that she's very down to earth which makes me like her more, she has fun with fashion and always pulls it off.

9. If you could only use one brand of make up for the rest of your make up using life, what would it be?
I would have to say collection 2000 simply because they are such a good price and I couldn't live without the concealer! ... Their nail polishes are really affordable too

10. What is one product you don't like?
I really dislike Mac studio fix fluid foundation, my skin hated it and it looked very cakey - I got numerous comments about how weird it looked!

11. Do you prefer a neutral make up look or a more vibrant look? Why? 
Neutral makeup, I rarely wear anything daring and when I do it never turns out to be as vibrant as I had planned... I love toned down makeup and vibrant clothing 

My questions for you!

1. If you could be any animal what would you be?

2. If you had to take one beauty product to a desert island, what would it be?

3. What is your favourite make up item in your entire collection?

4. If you were going on holiday what is one product you wouldn't be able to leave at home?

5. What is your 'go to' outfit?

6. Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?

7. If you had to chose one which would you pick, makeup or clothing? Why?

8. If you could be anyone else in the world for one day who would you chose to be?

9. What super power would you like to have?

10. Tell us one embarrassing story about something that has happened to you?

11. What was your favourite subject at school and why?

So, I tag ...
