2015 Spring : Makeup, Hair & Nail Trends

Spring is right round the corner if you are in the northern hemisphere (like me) and go by the astronomical seasons. As I haven't done a beauty post in a while, I thought I would do a makeup, hair and nail spring trends. I few things that have become popular this year already, beauty related, which are a bit strange are; Frizzy Hair, Smudged Mascara and Eyebrow Extensions. I'm learning things about beauty everyday, and looking back on pictures of me when I was a younger when I hardly knew anything made me think about what if I did have all this knowledge then. Anyways, I am glad that i'm getting the insight now otherwise I wouldn't be into beauty as much.

Make-Up Trends for this Spring:

  • Mixing Lipstick with Eyeliner to create an Eyeshadow
  • Fine Eyeliner
  • Berry Lipstick
  • No Makeup

Hair Trends for this Spring:

  • Coming Undone Styles
  • Ice White Colouring
  • Plaits and Braids
  • Choppy Fringe

Nail Trends for this Spring:

  • Negative Space
  • Skin Tone
  • Metallic Foils
  • Opaque Glitters

Hope this gives you some inspiration and insight into how to look this Spring! It sure has for me...
See you on my next post :)

P.s. None of these pictures are mine.

Following My Young Footsteps

I have really enjoyed being back in my home city (London). It's made me more relaxed and more independent. I have now been back for around 7 months, wow... that has gone by so quick! And I am really happy to have moved back at this point in my life! There have been ups and downs since we moved back, but that's life, you can't expect it to be perfect.

Long walks has become a daily/weekly thing as there's so much for me to explore and discover. Also I find it a good way to stay fit and healthy, and I enjoy sightseeing so might as well not bother with public transport... Otherwise how else am I going to catch up on the 9 years of not being here. As I have just had my course assessment for all the work we have done so far, I thought I would take the opportunity to walk for longer. So I decided to walk around where I used to live (which is only round the corner from where I am now), and follow my young footsteps. A lot of memories came back to me of my childhood and it was nice to be able to relive that as it was one of the most happiest times of my life.

I took my camera and my phone which has a fish eye attached to it. This was because at the moment I have been trying to take my camera everywhere I go, so that it will make me take more photos. As I haven't had time recently to do my photoshoots, I wanted to make sure that my photography passion doesn't disappear. The Fish Eye lens is from Urban Outfitters, and I LOVE it! I recommend getting it if you like that sort of photography. If you want to see how the fish eye pictures come out, go over to my Instagram and have a look for yourself!

Hope everyone is having a good week, and will see you on my next post! Love you all!
