Makeup Geek Shadows | Review & Swatches

Tuesday, 28 October 2014

If there is one thing I'm missing in my eyeshadow collection, it's a good set of matte and autumnal shadow shades. So instead of forking out £10 on MAC's refill palette eyeshadows I headed on over to Makeup Geek's website to buy a tonne (not literally - I had to restrain myself from buying the whole lot so only got 8) of eyeshadows which are a fraction of the price.


Top Row L - R: Vanilla Bean, Beaches & Cream, Peach Smoothie, Creme Brulee

50 Shades of Grey Pt. 4 | Fashion Series

Wednesday, 22 October 2014

Let's dress up this series a little bit with this classic style blazer from Topshop. Again, this is a year or so old as I'm all for re-using and re-styling up my old clothes. Funnily enough though, I've never worn this *hides face in hands* - but what a perfect time to get it out of the wardrobe and hopefully get some wear out of it this season. 

Job Interviews | My Tips

Monday, 20 October 2014

Today's post is a little different from my beauty or fashion posts but is pretty relevant to my life at the moment, so I thought I would share with you some tips on how to interview. I'm no expert nor am I even good at interviewing - probably shouldn't be doing this post you might think? Well yes, I thought so too but out of the 6 jobs I've interviewed for, I've got 5. Not too bad I'd say for a 20 year old who's nerves are on the scale ridiculous.

50 Shades of Grey Pt. 3 | Fashion Series

Wednesday, 15 October 2014

Onto part 3 of my Fashion Series '50 Shades of Grey' - if you haven't seen the others I will link them here and here which are parts 1 and 2. If you haven't guessed my theme yet, I'm going through my grey wardrobe staples. I love that it's getting a little colder now, and grey is definitely in this season! So all my purchases over the years of grey items haven't gone to waste. I will be getting so much wear out of all of these items come this Autumn/Winter. 

TMI Tag | My First YouTube Video

Tuesday, 14 October 2014
Okay guys, I did it! AHHHH. Probably the scariest and most awkward thing I've done in my life. I swear it's worse than when you had to stand up in front of the classroom preparing to read your essay on Shakespeare?! I thought I would do the TMI Tag to start off with after seeing so many on YouTube. I know the quality isn't amazing but we will get there - stay strong! It's a nice little introduction to my channel where you can get to know me a little bit more!

Please appreciate that I am very nervous so if questions were just 'yes or no' it's because I couldn't say much else. 

 Any feedback is greatly welcomed, please comment below, on my channel or tweet me @alanajadewise. Give the video a thumbs up if you liked it and subscribe for more videos from me! 



50 Shades of Grey Pt. 2 | Fashion Series

Wednesday, 8 October 2014

Next up on the 50 Shades of Grey fashion series is this gorgeous blouse with floral print on it. I think everyone needs a really nice blouse in their wardrobe. This is perfect for me as it has the three-quarter length sleeves which means it appears less frumpy on my small frame. The pattern of this is truly gorgeous and I love all the shades of grey. It's definitely a blouse that can be dressed up or down, which is why it's such a staple to have in your wardrobe. The back of the blouse has a split up the back which adds a nice twist to it, it doesn't show your back though unless you're stretching.

How to Make Your Lips Appear Fuller | Top Tips

Monday, 6 October 2014

We weren't all blessed with gorgeous full lips but we can now fake them with a few helpful tips and tricks that mean you won't have to go under the needle to get the lips you lust after.

I like many girls crave bigger lips, although mine aren't tiny I do wish they were a little more 'juicy'. Everyone is going crazy over Kylie Jenner and her new lips (which FYI are definitely lip fillers) so I thought I would show you my top tips on how I make my lips appear fuller. 

50 Shades of Grey | Fashion Series

Wednesday, 1 October 2014
So it's the 1st of October, Autumn is here and here I am still stuck in my grey, white and black colours. Will there be a time when I venture into much else in the fashion department? Probably not. 

I decided to start my own 'fashion series' if you like called '50 Shades of Grey' - which will basically be a selection of posts on Wednesdays of my grey picks, or grey A/W outfits. Let me know if you like this idea and I may do more. 

*Apologies for the quality of the photos, I took these myself and after work when it was slightly cloudy.
