I've been faffing a lot recently, watching tutorials on Youtube and attempting to copy them. I saw this vid about strobing and thought it was freaking awesome and can finally say I know what I'm doing with highlighter! I got Mac's Soft and Gentle a few years ago and love the effect it gives, I want to try the pressed Becca Shimmering skin perfecter, as seen in the video, but can't justify it when it's basically just a finer milled version (from what I can tell) of my Mac one.
I forgot about highlighter until recently because my skin hasn't had a smooth texture since college and highlighter tends to accentuate that, until now! I started using Paula's Choice 2% BHA Exfoliating Gel, which I've been meaning to talk about for ages because it is incredible! If you have tiny clogged pores that are just so annoying and won't go away, this stuff erases them in about two weeks. I use it every night before bed and it has changed my skin texture from bumpy to smooth. Holy Grail! I also love the Resist Anti-Aging Youth-Extending Moisturizer SPF50, which is oil free and the only SPF I have tried that doesn't make me break out. It feels like nothing on the skin which is so rare for an SPF and I only need to add a tiny bit of extra moisturizer around my nose and chin if I'm wearing makeup. Plus, the 15ml sample lasted me two months! I have normal/dry skin for reference!
I've also been attempting to create the perfect ponytail, I know, such a great use of my time, lol :P. I'm now obsessed with this girl, who is like, perfection defined, how does she make it look so easy! Still can't get that perfect poof! And I discovered the easiest way to style my fringe from this vid, so so simple and so effective, if only I'd known about this years ago lol. I know this was a bit of a random, waffley blog post, just wanted to share some stuff I've recently discovered with you :)

One of my fave looks, casual skater girl :) winter sucks for skating because it's always bloomin' raining, just like today, hence the inside photos! I did attempt to take some outside but I didn't want my camera to get soaked on my tripod, and my mum was the only human available and she had no patience, especially since she was hiding under a tree and still getting wet, haha. This is part of the #GetJumpy campaign for Meduse, the original creator of the jelly shoe! They have created this 'chelsea boot' style, which are basically just short wellies, perfect for raining England! :)
