Outfit // A Classic Combination*

  Logging into my blogger account to write up this post was really surreal - most likely because I haven't even so much as looked at this space of mine in months...and for that I sincerely apologise. 

  Amidst my voluntary teaching English at a summer camp in Italy (which you would probably know if you've been following my Instagram - @infamoushearts), traveling and internships...time slipped away. As a result, this post is horrendously wayyyy overdue...considering I took these pictures way before the summer holidays! But since I was gifted a gorgeous watch to showcase and because the lovely boyfriend of mine took these pictures, I couldn't let it sit there in my archives of forgotten pictures.

Review // Makeup Revolution Focus & Fix Brow Kit in Medium-Dark

  This is my first and only brow product that I've ever own - would you believe that? So when I say that I strongly recommend this for those that are new to the 'eyebrows game' or just want something easy and fuss-free...I really mean it!

A word on Identity

Apologies for not updating this little space of mine for a long while…Revising for end of year exams and spending time with the family (after 6 months away!) has just been eating up my time. Anyway, this post today is going to be slightly unique as it is quite personal and I’ve never written anything of this sort on here before. Ever since I attended a TEDxWarwick talk on ‘Identity’ a few months back, I’ve wanted to share this – my own interpretation of ‘identity’ - but have never quite known how...

Inspiration // Re-vampin' your Bedroom

  Considering you spend most of your time in your bedroom, there's no doubt that it should be your space and reflect your personality! Being an university student living in university accommodation, you definitely do not want to go back to a bog standard plain uni room at the end of a long day! Somehow, with a bit of personalization and bits and pieces here and there, you can really make your small (well, my uni room is anyway) space really cosy and homely...

Blogger Style Inspiration #2

  Another style inspiration featuring some of the best people in the blogosphere! I didn't really have a particular 'season' in mind, despite it being the transition from winter to spring here in the UK. Really, it's whatever caught my mind. Although, there are a few layering styles in there!

Review // MUA Sweet Sheen Lip Balm in 'Cherry Bomb' & 'Rouge Rumba'

  When MUA released their Spring 2015 collection, I was kind of excited because they haven't released anything in a while. Looking through the collection, to be brutally honest, I wasn't really interested in any of the other items - I rarely wear pastel eyeshadow shades and I haven't mastered the art of wearing blush... all apart from these. The MUA Sweet Sheen Lip Balm. I like a good quick, no-fuss tinted lip product that I can use for everyday wear and which can provide me a wash of colour to look more alive. 

  There are 6 shades in total, but I just picked up Rouge Rumba and Cherry Bomb - the more darker shades, as with my fairly pigmented lips, the lighter ones probably won't show up that well. (The other shades are; Pink Lilly, French Violet, Coral Reef & Peach Dream)

  Anyway, without further ado...

InstaSnaps #20

  It's been a while since I've posted an InstaSnaps round-up...but that's because I've been relatively quiet on the Instagram front. Whilst being at Uni, I really have no idea what 'interesting' things to post about since I basically do the same things every single day!

  Anyway, life lately has been awesome. I'm gradually curbing my relentlessly spending habits, watched 50 Shades of Grey with the boyfriend for Valentine's Day (we both thought the movie was crap by the way...incredibly awkward and cringey), celebrated 4 years with him and right now, I'm just waiting for the last 2 weeks of Term 2 to be over so I can go back to Vietnam to visit the family for Easter break!

  Hope everything is well with you guys!

The Oscars 2015 - My Top 8 Best Dressed

The Oscars 2015 took place this weekend and although amidst the London Fashion Week frenzy, I will admit that I keep up with the Oscars more. While I'm not the most up to date with movie watching, I do love some red carpet fashion action. Although I will say that I'm really glad Eddie Redmayne definitely deserved Best Actor because he was incredible in The Theory of Everything. That being said, I also thought that that movie would've won more awards!
  With luxurious pearly white gowns, neutral tones, statement necklaces and thigh high slits making a frequent occurrence this time round, I thought I would include my Top 8 Best Dressed - which were incredibly hard to narrow down to by the way...

The Ultimate Guide to eBay Shopping (Auctions)


I'm a massive fan of buying things on eBay and have built up quite a collection of my 'eBay bargains'. The two smock dresses from ASOS above were £7 each...that Motel skirt was a mere £2.50! Of course that's just a fraction of what I've bought from eBay! If you look hard enough, you can really find some amazing bargains that can give sales a run for their money - even for brands like Motel Rocks, Topshop, Missguided or Zara. Many assume that eBay equates to second-hand pre-worn items but that is definitely not the case! Some items listed are either brand new, or brand new without tags. Of course, with buying things online, it comes with a few risks. Since I've been buying things on eBay for quite a few years now, I thought I would share my top tips to make your eBay shopping an amazing experience...

Blogger Style Inspiration #1

  I'm thinking about starting this new feature on my blog that will occur every 2 weeks because sometimes, I come across an outfit on my blogroll that I just have to share. I get my 'style inspiration' from various places, Pinterest, magazines, Instagram...but most of all, from the lovely #fbloggers I follow! I'm currently finding it so hard to narrow it down to just 5 are my recent favourites...

Belated Primark Haul

  During these past few months, I have been to numerous Primark stores all over the country... I kid you not...I've been to the one in Coventry, London, Middlesbrough, Edinburgh...but I didn't spend that much though. I'm the kind that is perfectly content with just perusing the rails and 'window shopping' However, I did get a couple of 'essentials' and things in the Primark sale. Yes, the only thing that is better than Primark itself - Primark sales.

Valentine's Gift Guide for Him/Her: Against Commercialised Norm

With Valentine's Day coming up in about a week, you might be stuck as to what to give your significant other. I know I am. After being together for a couple of years, what do you do when it seems as if you've given them everything known to mankind? That's where creativity comes in...

Surviving Winter: Essentials

"Oh, the weather outside is frightful and the fire radiator is so delightful..." 
Yes, I am aware that it's been well over a month since Christmas...but with this weather, I do find myself singing them festive songs. A couple of days ago, I shared the only 3 coats I needed for surviving winter (I know, can't believe I narrowed it down so much) and now, because I have the lowest tolerance of the cold, here are some things that I absolutely can't live without when the temperatures drops to the minuses or I will freeze my butt off...

5 senses: January

  Can you believe that the first month of 2015 is over?! Well I'm in shock. Just like how much I'm in shock that the weekend is over and Monday is upon us....but I am pretty proud of sticking (ish) to my blogging schedule this month! #organised Also, I apologize for ruining any New Year's Resolutions after this...

12 Lists // Number 1 - January

  So this is basically a fun New Year project/series that I actually saw on Mini Penny Blog, but first started at Clear the Way and Chez Gillian. It's super simple - there will be one list each month and you just simply write your own personal list according to the topic. I'm going to try and keep this up every month because it's a fun project that doesn't take up loads of time and let's you get to know the person behind the blog better! January's list: favourite smells.
