OUTFIT | BURST WITH COLOUR

H&M jacket (similar), Topshop cami, ASOS jeans, Nike Free Run 3.0 trainers (similar), Stradivarius bag, Ray-Ban clubmaster

Since the weather has been quite nice, I decided to take full advantage of that and wear a cami that I normally only would wear during summer. This cami also might just be the brightest colour that I own. So for me to wear this top instead of a monochrome outfit, is a big change for me too. But as much as I loved how it was kind of late summer weather, and this weather made me wear colour, I'd rather have a beautiful crisp autumn day, because those days honestly are my absolute favourite.

DIARY | THE SUNDAY POST


Today I'm introducing a new series up on Style and Sushi. The Sunday post. A weekly post where I will catch up with you guys. I feel like you might not know me as well as I want you to know me, so this post is mainly going to be about me catching up on things I did in that week, a little haul or some tag posts and if I feel up for it, maybe even some videos. I'm not completely sure how and what I will post here but I feel like I will know after I've done it a few times. Now I kind of came up with this idea via Suzie's blog Hello October, but I want to give my own twist to it. 

It's Sunday and Sunday's usually are either fun days or lazy days. I mostly spend my Sundays just chilling in bed or on the couch. I used to absolutely hate Sundays as they were the days where I would do all of my homework, which basically means that I would be locked up in my room all day doing homework. But I have found a new way of planning so I mostly have my Sundays off and don't have to worry about things like catching up on homework or emails.

This week has been full of catch ups and fun things with friends and family. It has been an eventful week and I'm pretty stoked about next week. After an extremely lazy morning in my pyjama's with a cup of green tea and some bread with peanut butter, I am now off to go into town, like always, to maybe do some shopping.

OUTFIT | WE'VE GOT OURSELVES A REPEATER

thrifted coat, Primark black shirt, ASOS leggings, Aldo boots, H&M bag (similar) and scarf  (similar)

I remember wearing an outfit similar to this one last year at this time of the year. It's just so easy to get these leather look leggings out and this thrifted coat, they're basically perfect for autumn days. Tartan is just something that I need in my life when it's autumn, so it's not really that much of a surprise to see this beauty make a reappearance on the blog. Do you have any items you go back to every autumn/winter?

BEAUTY | A ROUTINE


I love my make-up bits, so every now and again this beauty post that just pops up on Style and Sushi. Today I felt like sharing a "make-up look" with you that I just go back to if I don't feel like putting the usual BB cream and eyeliner stuff on my face. So without further or do, let me explain what I use.

After I moisturised my face with the Origins Ginzing moisturiser, I usually go in with my NARS creamy concealer in Custard. I just tend to pop that onto any redness on my face and just blend it in with my fingers. Next I use the Laura Mercier Mineral Loose Powder in Real Sand, which I've been using for absolutely ages as I'm not really a big fan of foundation. I work that into my skin with a Real Techniques powder brush. I absolutely love the finish it gives me as I, like I said, am more of a fan of minimal/mineral make-up. Next thing I use is the NARS Laguna bronzer, the holy grail of probably nearly every person who loves make-up. I just use this and a Zoeva Luxe Face Definer brush to contour my face a bit and to make my face look like I just came back from a holiday in Spain. Which by the way would be an awesome thing to happen right now. 

Next up are my eyes. I usually go for eyeliner but lately I've been trying to use eyeshadows a bit more, which actually scares me. So I tend to grab my Maybelline Colour tattoo eyeshadow in On and On bronze. After staring at my eyes for a good 5 minutes, debating whether my eyes look all right or not, I usually move on to mascara. I'm currently using the Maxfactor False Lash Effect mascara in black, which I actually love. I didn't think I would get on with this at all, but after using it a few times I actually like it as much as the L'Oreal telescopic!  Now I completely forgot to include this in the photograph but I usually also use an eyebrow powder. I'm currently using the Catrice Eyebrow set which, for now, is my best friend. 

Then I move on to my lips and if I feel like it, I'll use this Cremesheen lipstick from MAC in Shanghai Spice which is just a perfect nude for me.If  I don't feel up for a lipstick I'll just pop a bit of Carmex lipbalm on my lips. Lastly, If I feel up to it I'll paint my nails. I painted my nails with this Rimmel London Salon Pro by Kate in Rock 'n Roll which is just a really nice red for this time of the year. I'm a big fan of red nail polish!

Et voila. That's what I currently go back to a lot when I'm not feeling the BB cream and eyeliner. Now please excuse my puffy face and eyes in the second photo, I'm currently suffering from the worse sore throat in the world and my glands and general face are swollen so that's why I look like Mrs Puff from Spongebob Squarepants. Good times.

OUTFIT | SWEATER WEATHER

H&M sweater, Primark midi skirt (similar), Nike Roshe Run trainers, ASOS scarf, CĂ©line sunnies

This was Sunday's attire. It was pretty warm and I just felt like I needed to out the bare legs one more time, before it's actually winter. So I did. I got this beauty of a midi skirt out of my closet again and I just completely forgot how much I actually loved it. I chucked this sweater on top as it's just the best sweater to feel comfortable in. I do realise that I look like a tree in this jumper but I honestly couldn't care as it was a Sunday. Sundays are for comfort and for fun, so only easy-to-throw-on-clothes are allowed. No regrets.
