June is always an exciting time of year for any shopaholics/fashion girls as most of the high street stores launch their mid-year sales. Although it was completely unnecessary, I definitely did some post-holiday damage in a few of my favourite stores.. and found some amazing pieces. ZARA recently launched their sale and even though I somehow missed out on their email notification and therefore probably missed out on the best selection, I still managed to place an order and get my hands on some amazing deals. I thought I'd put together yet another ZARA appreciation post to show some of my favourite pieces I've been wearing recently. 

One thing that ZARA always do well are stripes. As I've mentioned before, I'm a massive fan of striped pieces as it's a semi-subtle print that can be easily paired with other prints without clashing, especially if they're fine pin stripes and a soft colour like the shirt I'm wearing below. I actually picked up this shirt some time last year, however ZARA have so many takes on the classic striped shirt, and they're all pretty similar to be honest, so I've linked a very similar one below! For this look, I've paired my striped shirt with my new pink/mauve high-waisted Topshop Jamie jeans and added some cut-out brown boots from New Look. I just love how well the soft pink and blue tones compliment each other, although I decided to add quite a bright lip for a pop of colour. I'm wearing MAC 'All Fired Up' from last years Christmas collection.

NYE Outfit & Plans for 2016

I'm currently in a state of denial that Christmas is over already, it seemed to go in the blink of an eye. That being said, I don't think I've ever been more excited for a year than 2016. I'm hoping to move city/country/planet (lol) towards the later half of the year to start Uni after spending 4 years doing two different courses which, in the end, helped me figure out what career path to take. It's all a work in progress and nothing is definite yet, but 2016 will likely be home to a lot of changes.  

For these reasons, I was really looking forward to celebrating the New Year so a party was in order this time round, as was my favourite winter lipstick ever - MAC 'Diva'. The miles I go for an outfit to perfectly match my lipstick is hilarious, not to mention a bit extreme. This  Missguided skirt was probably the only piece in my wardrobe that matched it to a T, so needless to say, it was an absolute must I purchased the beaded top from the Topshop sale last year and added a statement necklace with my favourite black knee high boots for the essential 'winter vibes'.

25% off Bare Minerals: Look Fantastic SALE

In all honesty, this year's Christmas/Boxing day sales didn't impress or excite me as much as previous years. I searched through all of my favourite websites, both fashion and beauty.. and the only one that really stood out to me was Look Fantastic , which is actually where I purchased the majority of my post-christmas sales goodies last year. I'd highly recommend you have a look at their offerings if you're a student on a budget or if you're bank balance is running low after Christmas. A brand whose price points are reasonably discounted on Look Fantastic is Bare Minerals , and there is quite a good selection to choose from.. so it's definitely worth your while to have a look. I'll list my favourite picks below and of course leave links so you can purchase some of your must-haves or maybe even some new products to try and test! 

Bare Minerals Marvellous Moxie Lipsticks

RRP: £17.00
Look Fantastic Price: £12.75

At £12.75, these lipsticks are giving MAC a run for their money. I'd confidently say that the quality of these beat some Chanel and YSL lipsticks that I own. The formula is super creamy and long-lasting. I often wear one of my favourite shades 'Live Large' on a long day of work or at an all-day event and I rarely need to re-apply throughout the day. I'd definitely recommend!
