Announcement

So there’s something that I’ve been meaning to tell you for a while now, since the New Year actually. See I have only told a handful of people, as I’m not at all confident or perhaps ready for everyone to know about it. However I have finally decided, I’m just going to come out with it and share it with everyone. I will welcome all criticism or negative remarks or views, I will take it all in my stride. This is something for me and as long as I’m happy with it then honestly that’s all that matters.

Ok so here it is, I’m starting a YouTube channel, well actually I have started a YouTube channel, it’s been up for a few weeks now but obviously I’ve decided not to tell anyone yet. There you go. I’ve said it, you have no idea how good it feels to finally face my fear and just share this.

I don’t want anyone to get the wrong idea and think why is she starting a YouTube channel if she can’t handle negative criticism, however that’s not it at all. I am the kind of person, where if I want something then I will go for it. But as of late, that confidence and self-belief has kind of been kicked to the kerb. I was so worried that this is something I would not be able to do or be good at, worried about what people would say.

It took me two months to gain some of my confidence and self-belief back and I realised that this is something for me. This is something that I’m doing for myself. I don’t need any one else’s permission to be able to go through with this. Of course I know my trustee followers and friends will be amazing and be there for me and enjoy the videos I make and obviously I hope that the videos will also bring something to them too as well all other who come across them.

The channel, is under my blog name, ‘Itsherway’ it will feature things I would normally blog about such as lookbook videos, fashion hauls, tutorials and my favourite, advice videos. The channel is about me expressing my thoughts and opinions; sharing my advice to others who have been in positions I have previously been in.

Well that’s it for now then guys, I hope that you will all give the channel a chance, I am still in the process of filming more videos as well gaining more confidence in front of the camera. Do go and check it out and please feel free to offer any advice, anything at all, I am new at this so I will follow any advice I can.

Check out the two videos I have so far. (I am working on my thumbnails I promise.)

 

Thank you for your support.

Love,

I am a massive hoarder of coats and jackets, anytime there is a sale in January, I always stock up for the year to come. You ask why? So like I said I’m a coat fanatic and I’m always buying different ones throughout the year. (This can get a tad expensive). That’s why I’ll always pick out at least 2 or 3 during the sales.

I happen to actually forget I had this baby! How could I, I know! That’s what happens when you have so many, you forget what you have (face palm). Browsing through my wardrobe I found it again whilst producing a high-pitched squeal of surprise and recognition at the same time. There and then I decided this would be my new go to coat for the next few weeks.

I love how this trench can just completely transform an outfit. I could literally walk out in converse and jeans and still look somewhat sophisticated and smart (It also makes me feel like an undercover spy!). Want to know the best bit? I picked it up in the sale for £30!

Slightly late summer outfit post here, I decided to come back home up North for a few weeks and what did I do, yes I left my laptop at home. Soooo I kind had to had to wait around until I could grab someone else’s.

Remember those days, when we had the sun shining and the warm temperatures, where you would simply walk out in a t-shirt and complain about it being too hot? Yeah it seems like a while ago, especially now that were plagued with rain, more rain and guess what, yes more rain! The joy! I don’t know if it’s the same down south, but up north it is definitely grey and miserable!

Just looking through these few pictures, makes me want to cry and so desperately want to go back to the few weeks of summer we did have, I miss wearing sandals, eating watermelons and dining in the garden!

Enjoy probably the last summer post; you’re not going to see one for another whole year.

Considering we live in one of the most weather challenged countries in the world, it’s always a nice surprise when finally we are graced with a few weeks of the summer sun.

The trends this summer aren’t as daring as the past few summers, now that the designers have caught up on the reality behind the British summer, and how abruptly our weather can change during the day. Go out looking like a Greek goddess, come back looking like a windswept, haggard nightmare!

Not saying this summer, its still not about the strappy dresses, denim shorts and kimonos, because it is, however it’s supplied with a good dosage of lightweight outerwear, to help aid us during the day.

During the day I’m all for denim shorts and strappy tops, but in the evening with the cool breeze and the fading sun, I prefer something a little warmer. Pairing these printed trousers alongside a simple print t-shirt and brocade like lightweight jacket, leaves me feeling cool enough for the warm evening.

Be my valentine?

Yes it’s that time of the year again, Valentine’s Day, the day of love, soppy cards, excess cheese, crying singles, loved up couples and all things in between. Lovely time of the year isn’t it? Since I will be celebrating Valentine’s Day as a single lady this year, I still see no harm in dressing myself up in a lovely outfit, treating myself to a lovely night in watching probably some of the worst romantic comedies out there, but hey ho, it’s what the day is for!

I thought I would share some ideas on what to wear for Valentine’s Day, whether it is a coffee date during the day, movie in the late afternoon or the full works in the evening. Here are the top 3 outfits for me.

OUTFIT 1: Coffee date

OUTFIT 2: Movie date

OUTFIT 3: Dinner date

Minimal Hit!

Everyone knows that the world of beauty is fast catching up with the world of fashion, at both A/W & S/S fashion weeks, not only are the clothes important, but the makeup and hair also play a huge part in the overall look. In the last few years alone the makeup and hair seen in the shows occasionally even eclipse the clothing.

With various new trends sure to come to the forefront of the beauty world, we also have a few that are also in trend at the moment and for the coming spring/summer. I am going to talk you through one of my favourites and show you how you can achieve the looks at home.

So minimal has come around again as it always does and I mean who can complain? There’s hardly any effort needed to attain this look, yes amazingly high cheekbones, luscious full lips and amazing skin obviously helps, but I mean who needs those, right? The reason I love this look personally is because I really believe everyone is beautiful and the best way to show that off is to apply only products that enhance your beauty, yet being subtle at the same time. Using absolute minimal makeup will help you enhance the features you love. It lets your true complexion and beauty shine through.

Here’s how I would achieve this look…

HAIR: leave your locks the way they are naturally, whether they are straight, wavy or curly, just use a shine control oil, to help tame the fizz and add a little shine to your hair.

Now let’s begin with the makeup;

1. Apply a tinted moisturiser to your skin, this will help you moisturize your face as well smoothen out your skin tone (to achieve this look to its best we need a very good base)

2. This is not a necessary step, but for those who would like some extra coverage to conceal any dark circles or blemishes. You may apply some concealer, just be sure not to make it to heavy, just enough to cover what you need.

3. Grab a peach or pastel pink coloured blusher (matte works better) and dab a small amount using your fingers just onto the tops of your cheeks and gradually upwards towards your temples, make sure there’s not a long pink streak, blend it all out so it appears as a natural blush to your face.

4. Next use either white or nude eyeliner, line the waterline, this will help open up your eyes.

5. A clear mascara would be ideal but again if you want to add a little colour then opt for brown not black, coat both top and bottom lashes.

6. I personally like to add a little highlighter to the tops of my cheekbones, choose any highlighter you prefer you could even use plain old white eye shadow, as you will only be dabbing on a small amount just across the top of your cheekbones, this time apply using a brush.

7. This is not a necessary step, I would leave my eyebrows the way they are and just groom them into place, however if you need to darken them a little, you may but no harsh lines, try soften them out as best you can.

8. Lastly! All you need to do now is add a little colour to your lips, a light pink coloured gloss or matte lipstick can be applied, do not apply to much colour, just a subtle hint will do the trick and voila there you go, pretty as a peach.
