The Old-Fashioned Dungaree

This is very different for me, but I decided to do a sort of editorial post on two outfits that I'm loving.  I picked up this dungaree the other week and I have fallen completely in love with it. I love the frayed holes and the loose boyfriend jeans and it is so comfortable! Needless to say, I'm happy they're in fashion. The first outfit is a more casual look. I just went with a loose white top and cute, black strappy shoes. I thought this was a very cute, sunny-day-out outfit. The second outfit is a little more formal (sort of. I tried.) with a long sleeved white and black stripped shirt. I also chose black 'Mary Poppins' high heels and added a suede bag just because I thought it looked nice. 

                                  Outfit 1 :               Dungaree - Cotton On
White Shirt - Cotton On
Black Strapped Shoes - Rage 

                                  Outfit 2 :               Dungaree - Cotton On
Stripped Long Sleeve Shirt - Cotton On
'Mary Poppins' High Heels - Froggie

Photography and editorials are obviously very new to me. I know I'm probably doing them wrong but I find it quite enjoyable. What do you think? If you like these sort of things, let me know so I can do more! Photography by: my sister! Thanks ; )

Lust List

Going shopping is very dangerous for me. When I leave, I have a mental list of ANOTHER group of things that I want to get, validating me going back to the shops. Here are a few things that I would love to pick up on my next trip to our shopping centres : 

These shades are just amazing! I've been looking for an eye shadow with the exact pinky shade in this palette so I'll defiantly go to grab this.

I've been looking for nude and light pink lipsticks for a while and when Zoella mentioned these shades in a video I had to seek them out for myself! 
Lipstick 1 : Whimsical 
Lipstick 2 : Nevada 

These are absolutely adorable! I've wanted this polaroid since December and am going to continue my journey to get one.

I think these dresses are so cute. I'm not exactly sure where this one is from but I've seen others elsewhere that I would love to buy.

Matte Nail Polish is so different and I'm loving it! 
This one is from Topshop in the colour 'Nails In Croupier'.

It seems the new trend is the suede skirt. This one is by Hinge I think, but I'm hoping I can get one in the shops near me. (inspiration: Rosy Outlook )

These are the Classic Supergas and I am in love with them. They're so simple and could literally go with any outfit. These shoes are a must!

And that's it! What have you been lusting over lately?

Rose Gold And Succulents | New Loves

Succulents - Woolworths
Rose Gold Lamp - Wetherlys
Rose Gold Glass Ornament - Typo

One thing that is really thriving this year is rose gold. With the new trend, rose gold watches and necklaces, it's easily became one of my favourite colour or 'metal'. Not quite sure what to call it. I am also loving succulents. They are so cute and I literally teach them like my little pets. 
I just thought rose gold and the little green plants were such a great match. Hope it gives you some ideas!

The Maze Runner 3: The Death Cure By James Dashner

A bit after I read the sequel to The Maze Runner, The Scorch Trails, I started the third book, The Death Cure. I don't know if I was just bored of the story by then, but I was very disappointed by this book. It just dragged and sort of 'force read' it. If you're anything like me, you can't just give up a book in the middle of the story, but I wasn't very tempted.

This was probably the worst out of the three novels I've read so far. I will, however, read the next book in the series purely to see if it is any better. The story did have a fair few exciting scenes amongst the boys in the group and WICKED but most of the book just didn't tickle my fancy. The storyline was a little unclear, no new, exciting characters and the ending was highly unsatisfying and rushed. I would only recommend the book to people who are REALLY indulged in the series and feel they wouldn't be able to live without knowing what Thomas and the boys do next.

After Thomas finds himself trapped inside the WICKED headquarters, he finds his friends and plan an escape. Once in the 'real world', Thomas and the boys fuel a new spark of anger towards WICKED through many 'incidents' and explanations. Thomas finds himself fighting against cranks and people he thought he could trust. As the story behind WICKED and the Flare becomes tangled and then slowly unraveled, Thomas is caught between saving and betraying.

1 / 5 hearts.

If you read this book, what were your feelings towards it ?
