18 Ugly Truths About Modern Dating That You Have To Deal With

Georgia-Rose:

The perks of modern day dating guys and girls! :)

1. The person who cares less has all the power. Nobody wants to be the one who’s more interested.

2. Because we want to show how cavalier and blasé we can be to the other person, little psychological games like ‘Intentionally Take Hours Or Days To Text Back’ will happen. They aren’t fun.

3. A person being carefree because they have zero interest in you looks exactly like a person being carefree because they think you’re amazing & are making a conscious effort to play it cool. Good luck deciphering between the two.

4. Making phone calls is a dying art. Chances are, most of your relationship’s communication will happen via text, which is the most detached, impersonal form of interaction. Get familiar with those emoticon options.

5. Set plans are dead. People have options and up-to-the-minute updates on their friends (or other potential romantic interests)…

Winter into Spring

Spring’s here! And its looking set to be a pretty warm one already! 

And one of the hardest things to get right is what to wear in those awkward weeks that we transition from Winter to Spring. When the weather isn’t really quite sure on itself. (But then again in England, when is it ever!?) Here’s an ootd post I put together for a casual,  sunny spring day! :)

I teamed the sheer oversized top with a leather jacket as it’s still quite chilly and it works well with the cutout boots to give the look a slightly edgier feel.

Black Jersey Leggings- Miss Selfridge- £14.00

Black Chunky Buckle Cut Out Boots- River Island- £35.00

Black Faux Leather Jacket- New Look

I kept my makeup simple with a bold matte lip. I used Illamaqua’s matte lipstick in colour ‘Scandal.’ Which is one of my favourite Illamasqua lip colours to date, a gorgeous shade of pink! And for a dewy glow and added definition I applied Benefit’s ‘High Beam’ to the corners of my eyes, under my brows and above my cheekbones.

 

Happy Spring bloggers!

Experimenting with hair colour sprays!

Hi all! 

Today’s post is giving you a bit of an insight into what I’ve been getting up to in my hair and makeup styling classes at uni recently! Usually I hate mornings, especially Monday mornings! (Who doesn’t!?) But walking into my hair styling lesson and seeing an array of colour sprays, hair chalks, hair stencils and all sorts I knew it was going to be a good morning! We were given a demonstration on a few techniques we could use but was told to be creative and just basically go wild with it! Perfect! Of course I went straight for the colour sprays and hair stencils. The sprays we used were by Kryolan, they are literally called ‘Colour Spray’ and you can get these at any Charles Fox store and they come in lots of great colours. I would really recommend this product especially to style hair on a photo shoot and the colour washes out very easily. Here’s the link to the product: http://global.kryolan.com/product/color-spray#D21

 

Below is the final result of my experimentation using colours D21 (silver) fading into colour D23 (gold)

And of course I got my hair done too, blue ends! These sprays are just great for experimenting with colour on your hair aswell as for editorial photo shoots!

Benefit High Beam Review

Firstly I just want to start by saying sorry I’ve been away from blogging for so long! University has been hectic and I haven’t had much time to write any posts. But now I’ve got to grips with the pace of things here, I’ll be blogging a lot more often again :)

So for my first post back I want to do something I haven’t done yet, a make-up review. As my uni course includes a whole unit on make-up I’ve become alot more interested in trying out different products and brands lately. So for Christmas I got a load of Benefit make-up as I had heard good reviews on the products and wanted to try them out for myself.

So I’ll start with my favourite product High Beam. A make-up technique I have been quite interested in lately is highlighting and contouring, it’s amazing what a couple of sweeps of the right product can do to change/enhance the shape of your face! I’ve been looking for the perfect highlighter as early starts and late nights have started to take their toll on my skin! So I tried out Benefit’s High Beam and I must say I’m super impressed with the results!

high beam

To apply the product:

*Dab dots of the highlighter with the applicator along the top of the cheekbones going up to the temples diagonally, under the arch of your brows, in the corners of your eyes and anywhere else you feel needs to be highlighted.

*Now take a small blending brush or you can use your finger and blend out the highlighter using small circular motions following the dotted lines. And your done! It’s as simple as that!

What I love about this product:

*Blends easily

*Good pigmentation

* Lovely pearlescent colour

*Gives your skin a beautiful dewy glow, perfect for everyday use or a high end look

*A little goes a very long way!

What I don’t like so much:

*Slightly on the pricey side at £19.50

* If you’re wearing blusher/bronzer it tends to wipe it away

*Too much of the product comes out on the applicator brush when you take it out the bottle

Overall I would definitely recommend this product, it’s been a lifesaver for me over the past couple of months during the party season and although there are a few cons, the pros definitely outweigh them! I will be buying this product again as it’s my favourite highlighter I’ve found to date,=.

I give Benefit High Beam a rating of:  4.5/5

I’d love to know what highlighters you use/would recommend as I’m always up for giving new products a go, please take a few seconds to answer the poll below and the one with the most votes I’ll give a try! :)

Peace and love

Amber Riley: Filming ‘Glee’ Tribute Episode Was ‘Very Therapeutic’

Originally posted on Hollywood Life:

Amber Riley was one of the original cast members on ‘Glee’, and is now revealing how emotional it was to film the tribute for Cory Monteith, and how it gave the cast the opportunity to say a final goodbye to both Cory and Finn Hudson.

The episode of Glee that will pay tribute to Cory Monteith will air October 10, and we’ve already braced ourselves for the tears. In a new interview, Amber Riley has revealed that it will absolutely be a “tearjerker,” but filming was full of both tears and laughter for the cast and crew.

The last of Summer? :(

So as you all probably know by know I LOVE Summer! And I’m really quite down that it’s coming to an end! Result of this; unhappy Georgia and having to fork out money for Winter clothes as to be honest my Autumn/Winter wardrobe is pretty much non-existent! But what might possibly be one of the few last times I get to do a Summer post, I give you ‘The Summer jersey dress.’

Every girl has that ‘Jersey dress’ whether it’s a simple plain skater style or a slightly more colourful summer one like mine! This lovely Summer jersey dress is from Republic in the sale at a bargain £7.00! I purchased this dress a few weeks back for my holiday in Kavos and it was perfect. It’s so light and I love the twist drop back! It’s a perfect throw on summer dress! I styled my dress with simple aviator sunglasses, a white bandeau and a quick messy bun, for the perfect chilled summer look. Let me know what you think!

Thankss

Bargain market dress buy!

So the weekend that has just passed myself, my family and my boyfriend went away to Hopton/Great Yarmouth. I had a great time and went to some really cool places. One of the places we visited was the Great Yarmouth market where I bought a bargain dress for just £5.00! I’ve been looking for outfits for my freshers week when I move to university later this month and so far I haven’t really had much luck taking my limited funds into consideration. But this dress was perfect!

This dress can easily be worn as a casual day or night dress. I love the dungaree style back and faded flower print. I added a black bandeau (New Look) underneath the dress and white jelly pumps (River Island.) I kept the accessories simple with a cool glitzy ear piece (Miss Selfridge) and finally curled the bottom half of my hair and roughly clipped the top half up for a cool, effortless look for a night out in Hopton with the family! :)

Let me know what you think about the look!

Georgia :) x.
