Get To Know Me

I thought I'd make my first post pretty straight forward, with some facts about my favourite fashion and beauty items!

Favourite Foundation: Dior Diorskin Forever, Fluid Foundation SPF25, I use shade 20. When it comes to foundation, I'm very much an investor. 

Favourite Lipstick: Girl About Town, MAC. Does. Not. Budge.

Most Worn Item of Clothing: My ASOS Rivington jeans or my Doc Martens, they both go with almost everything!

What I'm Loving Right Now: Co-ordinates, Motel and Boohoo are doing some great ones. This one is my absolute fave! 

What I'm Not Loving So Much Right Now: I'm trying to like extremely ripped jeans (not minor scuffs, those are fine). Every time I try them on I literally feel like I've bent over and ripped my trousers, completely exposing myself. 

Desert Island Item: Lacura Aqua Complete Moisturiser, available from Aldi (yes, really). I'm going to be doing a post on this very soon!

Favourite Perfume: Miss Dior, Dior, every time I spritz some on, I feel like I'm ready to face the world. 

Biggest Beauty Mistake: Over-plucked eyebrows a few years back. My face is just way too round so they deformed me. But if like me, you're foolish enough to try it and regret it, rub caster oil into them every night and they will grow back in no time at all. 

Favourite Place To Shop: Selfridges' first floor beauty department on Oxford Street - I feel like Holly Golightly at Tiffany's. It smells of perfume, it looks bright and pretty, and most importantly, everyone who works there has just the right amount of attitude (and then some). 

Biggest Waste Of Money: The bodycon trend - I bought bodycon tops, skirts, dresses, the works. I also got them in lots of bright colours, because hey, the over-exposure of all my lady humps and lumps wasn't making enough of a statement. Additionally, I bought a gorgeous pair of peep-toe gold Guess stilettos....but my feet were too wide, basically cutting off circulation in my toes. But when they're that pretty....oh hell, I haven't worn them in at least a year. 

Favourite Make Up Style: Winged eyeliner - my mum calls them 'Cleopatra eyes'. Cleo's eyes and good contouring are the winning formula. I used Rimmel Glam Eyes Liquid Eyeliner as it lasts all day and the brush is long and thin with makes it easier to vary the length and width of the flick (what a mouthful). 

My Clothing Style: Depends on my mood. However, my friend once described me as 'elegant grunge'. I really didn't know what to do with that kind of information. So I started a blog. 

Thanks for reading, please stay tuned as I am going to start posting articles/reviews/products and MUCH MORE! 
I'm also setting up a Bimba Beauty email account, but for now feel free to post comments!
