V FEST 16′ Plus Big Blog Announcement!

 

V Festival 2016 was pretty crazy…My first time camping at a festival so I was pretty nervous! It wasn’t smooth sailing I’ll be honest! But it was one hell of a weekend! My main reasoning for buying the ticket was Justin Bieber (queue boo’s) Sia and Rihanna performing. Firstly I will just personally shut down the rumour Biebs was miming, I don’t want to be controversial or anything…Yes he did have a backing track (like most artists I saw that day did) and yes he did talk a fair bit, but I feel like he was really trying to connect with the audience and that makes a nice change from some artists who just perform then walk of the stage. I’ve seen him in concert quite a few times and he usually has a backing track as he dances quite a bit, so any awkward silence’s are avoided, also he did sing over the backing track and performed two acoustic accapella songs! It was just a shame that a few people had to ruin it for the people that were there to actually watch his performance.

Aside from my Bieber rant (SORRY) see what I did there? 😉 I had the most amazing time and myself and my friends were lucky enough to have the most awesome camping neighbours who we spent most of our weekend with. We managed to see alot of acts over the weekend;

Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Sia, Stormzy, Foxes, Bastille, All Saints, Bebe Rexha, Little Mix, David Guetta, among a few…I always think festivals are really worth the money as to pay to see all of the acts you end up seeing individually would be incomprehensible. And I met my favourite beauty instagammer, the amazing Sophie Richardson! @sophiehannahrichardson (Queue fan girling.) I’ve just compiled a a few photos from the weekend below, followed by my blog’s big announcement! 😀

As can be seen above, I was but a shadow of my formal self by the end of the weekend! (My mum took this picture when collecting me on Monday…)

SO, my blog’s big announcement…As of Thursday 1st September I am very excited to announce I will start VLOGGING. I am in the process of creating my Youtube channel in connection with my blog Custom Made Character and I will be posting once a week on lifestyle, beauty and fashion topics.

Magnet Look Launch Event!

Hi lovelies!

I’ve been super duper busy over the past week hence the lack of posting! And as much as I wish I could share my trip to Dorset, I’ll have to put that on hold for a future post, as its all a little bit secretive at the moment! All I will tell you is I was assisting an incredibly talented creative team for 3 days for a couple of magazine submissions!

Anyway, moving on to today’s post…A brief overview of my day at Magnet Look’s Launch event in London! This event was the first industry event I have ever been personally invited to! So very excited I set off to Liverpool street to the Andaz Hotel where the days event was being held. The day was to launch the new platform Magnet Look which is a platform for bloggers and industry creatives to upload and watch videos, images, your own blog posts and even buy the products you see featured all on one site. It’s a really great platform, I think it’s definitely going to be popular with bloggers especially as it’s such a great place to get inspired so if you’re interested here’s the link to sign up! https://www.magnetlook.com/

The days schedule was filled with networking, talks from people who work in the industry, and lots and lots of cute little cakes…It was great to meet some other bloggers as that’s something I haven’t been able to do until this point. Here’s some snaps I took throughout the day!

Fancy Dress Party OOTD!

Hey lovelies!

Sorry for the delay in what was meant to be yesterdays post, but I seem to have misplaced my camera (typical me) so I don’t have all the photos for my Halloween ‘creepy doll’ tutorial! 😦 However here is a quick post to keep you going until I hopefully find my camera and put a post up tomorrow! Just in time for a little last minute Halloween make up inspiration  🙂

So Saturday was my friends 21st birthday party and the best kind of parties are always fancy dress! I love fancy dress parties, a time for you to dress up as your favourite character/celebrity. Take a rest from being your fabulous self for the night and be whoever you want to be! And my alter ego for the night was BATWOMAN! A strong, independent, crime fighting woman. Girl Power! Haha This was one of the reasons I decided I wanted to be Batwoman, that and the fact that I have no money and this was a costume my mum already had! Its all about recycling clothes!

My lovely sister was good enough to treat me to getting my makeup done for the party, which I’m always more than appreciative of as she’s great armed with a few brushes and some simple makeup. I unfortunately didn’t get any close ups of the makeup as I wasn’t planning to do a post on it. Although I did get some mid shots, where you can see the eye makeup quite well as it’s so dark and strong. So here are the few photos I managed to snap…Let me know what you think of the outfit and makeup and I would love to see any of your own fancy dress pics and especially fancy dress makeup looks! You could also use this look for Halloween if you want to go for something not so scary and a bit more sexy!

Mwah! Xo

Charity Shop Haul!!!

Hi guys!

So this is my first ever ‘haul’ post, so of course it’s got to be a charity shop haul! My obsession with charity shops has slowly grown over the years for three reasons…

Reason 1: I am poor…

Reason 2: I am a student and I am poor…

Reason 3: You can find some amazing gems and almost replicas of pieces in high street stores for a tiny fraction of the price!

So I set of to my local town to change my cash into euros for my holiday to Majorca! (See one of my previous posts for wonderfully cheap holiday high street bargains!) And my mum saw a pretty floral dress in the window of Scope charity shop, so we went in for her to try it on! Whilst I was waiting I couldn’t help but have a look around and I’m glad I did, I found some great little pieces that will be perfect to add to my holiday/Summer wardrobe!

So first of all I found these cute little sheer tank tops, perfect for day or evening and a great material to wear on holiday when it’s going to be so warm! At just £2.00 each! Then whilst rummaging through the rails i was lucky enough to find a lush white peplum skirt (which I have been wanting for some time) for £3.00! And just as I was about to pay A beautiful bright blue top caught my eye in the corner of the shop. And to my surprise it was from River Island, and in great condition! Perfect for a night out on holiday! Here are some pictures of me wearing my charity shop finds. (Sorry for the bad picture quality!)

So there you have it! My first charity shop haul post and it just goes to show that sometimes you don’t need to spend so much on that perfect tee or skirt when there’s charity shops waiting to be rummaged!

I’d love to know if you’ve found any gem buys at charity stores or if theres any particularly great charity shops to go to, let me know in the comments! Share the lovee 😀

Peaceeeeee! xo.
