What I've Been Loving (May 2015)

Boy oh boy, May was one heck of a month. It's the month that I had the most academic deadlines piled up in a mere few weeks, and the month with the most social responsibilities. OK, ok. Maybe you can call it chilling' with ma friendsz... (Festivals, birthdays, going to the movies, lunch/dinner dates, Hozier, cake parties and a HP screening in a rundown abbey(!) —you know the gist). Despite this jam-packed schedule, I managed to discover one of my current favourite reads, and quite some beauty bits. Thank you, whomever who invented credit cards and online shopping.

Topshop 5th Anniversary Collection

When it comes to lipsticks, I'm the worst. I've got about a bajilion and yet I can't seem to stop myself from buying more —despite the fact my drawers are exploding. What can I say... I just like to widen my horizon and, well, pretty packaging always wins me over. And Topshop's 5th Anniversary Collection was no exception. I mean... Look at that rose gold detail! *insert heart-eye emojis*

All Powered Up – Body Power Expo 2015

You know that I'm always on the look out for new products, and with my current interest in fitness and wellbeing, Body Power Expo just seemed like the right place to be. My super sporty friends actually suggested it to me, and whereas I'm nowhere as fit as they are, I won't decline a chance to widen my horizon in an area I'm not completely familiar with. Life's all about breaking boundaries after all, init?

Shine Bright Like a Diamond

It's taken me a long while before I warmed up against the idea of using highlighters. A product that'd make my complexion even shinier? Eh... No thanks. Being blessed with combination skin that will start looking shiny in just an hour of applying my base, I had enough 'natural glow' —read: grease. That being said, as my skin has gotten a bit drier, I've seen the benefits and now highlighters a staple in my everyday routine. I haven't tried everything that's out there, but these are the keepers...

I'm sure we all know Into The Gloss's infamous #ITGTopShelfie series, and whereas my photography skills are far from Tom Newton's level, I still gave it a shot (pun not intended). I've actually been putting off writing this post for a long time now, as I kept running out of things that made my ‘top shelf’ incomplete. Sadly, it's a vicious and never-ending cycle, which I only realised recently —especially with my lacking student budget. So here it is, an unedited version of my beauty cupboard. What you see is what you get...

What I've Been Loving (April 2015)

The past month has been crazy. I feel like I always say that, but April made me realise how fast time has past. I've been in Leeds for 8 months now, I'm 22 and 9outoften is officially 3 this month! The good about blogging is that I give myself a reason to splurge on items, all in the name of research for (better) content – at least that's what I keep telling myself. This month I've re-discovered an old fave I've kinda forgotten about and discovered tons of new products that I wish I'd tried earlier.
