Boxing Day Sales

My Boxing Day Sales Picks 2016

Dinner has been devoured, bellies are full and the Christmas specials are on the TV. The biggest part of Christmas 2016 is done and dusted, but now it’s time for one of my most favourite bits – the sales!

If you are a teen or young adult you may prefer to have smaller presents to open and then have money to spend in the sales, or just want to shop them anyway. I’ve done some research and picked out some of the best deals for this year.

I adore how Jesy opts to be different and go for a more rock chick look as it really sets apart her style. These shorts are perfect with maybe a band or punk-style shirt or even a bralette teamed with a leather jacket. You can get your hands on these shorts for just £38 from Topshop.

2015 favourites

2015 favourites

[Apologies this is late – I’m in bed with two ear infections and the flu. My painkillers have kicked in enough for me to finish adding images and publishing!] 

It’s that time of the year again where I discuss my favourite things from the year. As I lacked in regular posts this year, I decided to just wait until now to do my favourite products from the past 12 months in a post similar to this one. Without further ado, here are my 2015 favourites.

Music 

Little Mix – Get Weird 

Get Weird

Little Mix made a big comeback from their 12 month sabbatical and downtime in the studio with their third album ‘Get Weird’. which is full of melodramatics, sass and just some damn right catchy tunes. Of course, I purchased the Deluxe edition and absolutely fell in love with it. My personal favourites include hit single ‘Black Magic’, ‘Secret Love Song Pt II’ and ‘A.D.I.D.A.S’ (not about the sporting brand, in case you were wondering.) This album is eclectic and showcases the sounds of girl band’s from today’s generation perfectly. I’m very much looking forward to them performing it live next year on the Get Weird tour which starts in Cardiff. Of course, I will be there.

5 Seconds of Summer – Sounds Good, Feels Good 

sounds good feels good

This is the second album from 5SOS since getting signed in 2014 by Capitol Records and it shows such a difference from their debut studio album. The campaign alongside the album, ‘The New Broken Scene’, aims to promote that the album and any environment involving the band is a place for the “outcasts” and people who are suffering with stigma from mental health. Tracks such as ‘She’s Kinda Hot’, ‘Jet Black Heart’ and ‘Broken Home’ are just a few of the songs which fans are able to find pretty easy to relate to and I am definitely in love with this album.

One Direction – Made in the A.M 

made in the amx

The first album post Zayn and the last album pre haitus; Made in the A.M is One Direction’s most anticipated album since Up All Night (aka album number one) and what a difference there has been since 2011. As a fan, I feel honoured to have watched them grow from teenage boys to young men and listen to their sound mature from bubblegum pop to chasing the rock vibes. While I’m sad that we won’t be getting a new album in 2016, I’m very satisfied with the music we have been left with for these 18 months.

Books

Binge – Tyler Oakley

binge cover

As you may be aware from my review, this is something I highly enjoyed reading. The essays compiled by Tyler Oakley covering a numerous amount of topics are definitely relatable to myself or people I care about and is definitely on my top three favourite books this year.

Love, Tanya – Tanya Burr 

love-tanya-burr-book-cover

It’s true that there are many YouTubers signing book deals lately, but ‘Love, Tanya’ is definitely one I recommend. ‘Love, Tanya’ is like a handwritten guide from a beautiful big sister who has experienced the highs and lows of a teenage life and female problems and is now sharing her advice. Plus, the baking chapter is definitely a must read and try.

140 Characters of Truth – Joshua Fox

josh fox

This book was written by my friend and fellow journo, Josh Fox and although I only read it last month, it’s definitely an important one. Josh says the things many of us need to hear. With a message to our generation who thrive on showcasing the perfect life on social media, Josh gets real in a book that merely talks about the truth behind a numerous amount of tweets posted by himself over the years. If you’re as consumed in social media as much as I am, I highly recommend this quick yet eye opening read.

Products 

Lush Intergalactic bath bomb

intergalactic

I’m a sucker for a good bath bomb, especially ones which satisfy my aesthetic. I’ve fallen hard for Lush’s Intergalactic bath bomb which makes it look like outer space in my bath tub. Very satisfying and smells amazing.

£3.95 from LUSH  
Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation

rimmel wake me up

This has been my go to foundation for 2015 as it has a lovely natural, radiant glow. It’s a light coverage which you can build to your own need and doesn’t feel at all caked on. Definitely got a good use out of this.

Bourjois Délice de Pouder bronzing powder

bronzer

This is definitely a product I found myself using a lot in 2015. After hearing my favourite beauty gurus rave about it and high recommendation from my friend, I picked it up earlier in the year. It’s a fantastic shade for my light skin colour and doesn’t have any orange tone to it, so it gives a natural look. Plus, I love the fact that it reminds me of chocolate!

£7.99 from Feel Unique

Tanya Burr lipgloss in Berry Picking

berry picking

I absolutely loved this lip gloss this year. It gives a berry stained look to your lips (hence the name) and isn’t too overpowering in colour. I love all of Tanya Burr Cosmetics’ lip glosses that I have tried but this one is definitely my favourite.

£5.99 from Superdrug

EOS Strawberry Sorbet lip balm

eos

I’ve never tried an EOS lip balm before this one and it definitely kept my lips moisturised whenever I used it, plus the flavour was really nice. The only downside is that I know you can get them for less than $3 in America whereas they cost a good £7 here in the UK. Next trip to America I shall definitely be stocking up.

£7.00 from Topshop
I hope you enjoyed reading about what I loved in 2015! What were your favourites from last year?

Sunday's Style Steal: Ariana Grande

Sunday's Style Steal Ariana Grande

Hello again!

I’m back again with another Sunday’s Style Steal just for you. This week I’m focusing on one of the biggest princesses of pop right now, Miss Ariana Grande. Ariana is one of the most watched teen pop stars on the planet right now, so it’s no wonder why her style is so on point. The style I’m looking at today is from an outfit she wore at a recent meet & greet with fans.

Ariana wears a very simple but stylish outfit in this picture which is pretty easy to achieve. Her jeans are rather expensive, costing $187, and her top is unfortunately no longer available from Topshop. However, I have found some very similar items of clothing to create a look inspired by Miss Grande’s.

The top I have found similar to Ari’s is the Della Dropped Peplum Cami Top in white from Missguided which is currently £5.99 (originally £7.99). It’s slightly longer than Ariana’s but follows the same sort of style.

The skinny jeans I have chosen in replacement of Ariana’s are the Shaping Skinny Regular Jeans from H&M at £39.99, but dark denim jeans will work with recreating this look.

Although you cannot see her shoes, Ariana wears YSL pumps at a bank breaking $795. Assuming the majority reading this don’t plan to splash out such a high amount on shoes, I’ve opted for the Black Pointed Platform Court Shoes from New Look at £24.99. These shoes are a classic black heel and complete the outfit. If you’re not a heel person, such as myself, then I recommend these ballet shoes which are also from New Look.

Black heels

 

 

Ariana doesn’t have a bag with her in this photo as it’s a meet and greet but one I recommend to go with this outfit is the Pin Stud Crossbody Bag from Topshop for £25. Bag

 

No accessories are on show for this outfit, but I think bracelets and earrings would definitely tie the outfit together nicely. This outfit is ideal for a number of occasions – whether it’s a casual night out or a day out with friends.

I hope you liked Sunday’s Style Steal for this week! Do you like Ariana? I’m looking for inspiration for future posts in this series, so make sure you comment below who you would like to see next.
