The last few weeks I've spent some time looking for a new lipstick to suit my skin colour and the upcoming season. In the past years I've sworn by the dark matte red. Goodness knows how many Rimmel Kate Moss and Mac Diva lipsticks I've worn.

Today on my little Boots haul, I came across two new colours, more neutral than I would ever usually opt for. The first, a matte colour by Soap & Glory which I have NEVER thought to buy makeup products from- it's usually the nice smellies and bath features. However, Motherpucker in Blush Pink is to die for. The soft purple tone is a new shade that actually suits my skin colour! I would also like to note how much I love the packaging and sleek-look to the lipstick.

Me being me, I also picked up a new little find by Rimmel- 'Provocalips'. It is said to give your lips up to 16HR of wear! So why not put that to the test? For a mere £6.99 I forgot about student loan and gave it a try. I opted for shade 730 'Make your move' (kissproof omg). Lighter than Rimmel, it has two sides to the stick. The first for intense colour and the second to lock in shine. Although it's no longer summer, a light lip shade is ALWAYS needed.

Any opinions and thoughts feel free to comment.

As part of my A-Level media course I was to develop a magazine from scratch. With research from the likes of Company and Vogue magazine I produced 'LUXE'. All photographs, graphics and articles are by yours truly. 

I really REALLY enjoyed this module and I will be using this task for portfolio work. Take a look at it online!  Find the link to the magazine here or click on the image above.

I'm currently into week five of my first year at the University of Sunderland and so many great things have happened. Freshers week began on the 15 September and consisted of non-stop alcohol consumption and partying. I've became student representative of my course, helping within the university's student union and I've made some of the greatest friends whilst staying in student halls.

Living student life to the full, of course...

I could not imagine life right now if I hadn't made the choice of University.
Best days of my life!
