PASTEL FEMME LUXE FINERY TRY-ON HAUL


Can you tell I’m waiting for Spring to spring? I wrote in an instagram caption last week ‘if I keep wearing pastels, it’ll make the weather get warmer faster, no?’. Well, a week later, I have discovered that the answer is, in fact, no. I was invited to collaborate again by Femme Luxe Finery, who I’ve worked with several times in the recent months and I was excited to accept. I’ve felt myself feeling like I know what to choose now, and I understand the things from the website that’ll flatter my body [as well as things that really won’t]. 

Femme Luxe Finery has a very obvious point of view. It’s very Insta-worthy and the models don’t represent a very attainable or usual body shape. They look great, don’t get me wrong, but this makes it difficult for the average shopper to have any sort of idea about how the clothes will look on their body. So this means you can be feeling like it’s a bit trial-and-error. 

With that being said, I’ve really enjoyed being allowed to try lots of different items from the website and I’m getting to grips with the pieces that work for me. For this collaboration, I decided to opt for the prettiest pastels and the more Spring-like wear in an attempt to make myself feel like the warmer weather is on its way. And I’m actually really pleased with this haul, despite it still seeming to be 3 degrees outside. Here’s what I got…

CHRISTMAS STAR FACE + EYE PALETTE | TOOFACED


Not a lot makes me happier than a pretty pastel pink thing. Add in the fact that it’s a makeup palette and by my all time favourite brand Too Faced and I’m practically frothing at the mouth. It’s been a little while since I did an  a c t u a l  beauty review on this blog, so forgive the rustiness, but I couldn’t resist snapping a million pictures of this gorgeous treat and I want to share the absolute gorgeousness with you all. 

Too Faced’s Christmas Star Face + Eye Palette was this year’s festive special. My mum can never fight the urge to send me a limited edition Christmas gift set, and I always end up with something really pretty and special on Christmas morning from her, so big ups Mumma! This luxurious collection has a $213 value and contains 20 eyeshadows, 5 face shades, a mini Better Than Sex Mascara and a mini lip gloss. I was gagged, henny.

COSY WINTER BITS WITH FEMME LUXE FINERY


Well, howdy doody, and isn’t it bloody baltic? I’m sitting here, propped up in bed in my dressing gown, with a cup of tea and three blankets and still shouting for someone to turn the heating up. It was a positively tropical -2 degrees when I got to work this morning, meaning my Gregg’s chicken bake was as good as refrigerated when I finally got to my desk. My extra-hot vanilla latte? Didn’t realise I’d ordered it iced….

But I digress. Basically, what I’m trying to get at is; it is  b l e d d y  f r e e z i n  hun and I want to write about my newest haul from Femme Luxe Finery. They’re an online store that I was initially very skeptical of, but as I’ve tried more of their stuff, I’ve realised it’s not all about the boobalicious models who wear the pieces; it’s more about how you style it. So with that in mind, I decided to dedicate this entire order to cosy winter bits that’ll hopefully make the next few months a touch more tolerable. *hopefully!* Here’s what I got…

WHAT I GOT FOR CHRISTMAS | 2019


Here I sit, broken hearted that my favourite day of the year is over again! I’m hungover, weigh an extra stone and guilt-ridden after making my way through the leftovers of the three-bird roast. Now the chaos of the day is over, I wanted to share what I got for Christmas this year before I start putting them all away. I got extra spoilt [as usual, I’ve got the best family ever!] and I love all of my extra-special gifts. Here’s what I got!

THE WINTER EDIT | FEMME LUXE FINERY TRY ON HAUL


My favourite tweet of the year so far has got to be “when we put the clocks back, didn’t realise we put them back to the Ice Age - baltic!”. I agree with this on a spiritual level. I’m flipping freezing. Between 8 cups of tea and evening, a blanket and a hot water bottle, I still seem to be struggling to be warm. I’ve also always struggled to get past the hoodie-leggings-boots winter-wear combo and dress ‘nicely’ in the colder weather. I’m on a quest to have more fashionable colder weather options and look more feminine and chic; less bulky vagrant. So here’s my latest Femme Luxe Finery haul, but this time it’s a winter edit.
