OMCZ #3 Crop Tops!


So it is that time of the month again yes that's right OMCZ time!!!

The theme for this month is......

Crop-A-Top

If you own a crop top go ahead show us how you wear it, if like me you don't , Then make one or fashion one out of something else. Be creative. 


Now I have to confess I am cheating a bit with this one as I have been short on time so I am going to re-use some older blog photos from last year that feature some crop top shots!!




This was a basic boyfriend crop top from Primark last year which I loved throughout the Summer! At the moment I am struggling with my body confidence but I am hoping I can get back into the right frame of mind to wear this top again this year!

Don't forget to check out the other ladies also taking part!

Modcloth Monday

Hello and happy Bank Holiday Monday I hope you are all enjoying yourselves!!

I apologise for the lack of posts this month but work has been really busy and it leaves me so tired that I just come home and collapse in a heap!! I also seem to be suffering from a lack of confidence at the moment which has left me not wanting to do outfit posts as I have fallen out of love with everything.
Whenever I get like this I try and wear one of my faourite dresses so I dug out my ever faithful Olso Modcloth dress (still so grateful to Sarah from Plus Size and Proud for selling this to me!) and bunged it on this morning! To change it up a bit I tried out my new Lady Vintage London petticoat which I bought when they had a discount code a few weeks ago.

I really wanted to love this petticoat but I was a bit disappointed especially for the price I paid (about £30 after the discount). I ordered the largest size 24-26 but when it came I could see the elastic was really tight and I just about got it on. I had a look at the waistband and could see the elastic was done up with a button (in the same style as children's clothes which have an adjustable waist), so I undid the button and the elastic pinged back inside the waistband oops! I have left it like this which means it now sits lower on my waist and gives more length to the petticoat. I wanted it to wear under my Estella cupcake dress but it doesn't sit right as the petticoat isn't long enough and I get the lampshade effect!

I had a sudden brainwave and realised that my Oslo dress is shorter so decided to try it under that one instead and I think we have a winning combination!

See what you think!

I wasn't sure at first that the petticoat would go underneath as there is a lining to this dress, so I was pleased when it did, I also quite like the way it peeks out from underneath (I know that traditionally it shouldn't) as it adds interest to the outfit.

Despite my initial reservations about the petticoat I think I can make it work, and the one thing I do like is the silky waistband and how soft the tulle is, especially when worn with bare legs.

If anyone has any petticoat tips or suggestions I would be glad to hear them as I am still on the hunt for one to go with my Estella Dress.

Make Up Revolution One Blush Stick

So there are always those beauty products that everyone raves about and I always wonder if they are worth the hype. I have seen lots of posts about various Make Up Revolution products and having tried a few pieces I have become quite the fan of this brand.

There is one product that has taken me ages to buy as every time I went to look for it there were none in stock so imagine my happiness when I finally found the One Blush Stick on the shelves!!

It is a versatile blusher as you can also use it on your lips as it can be used wet for a sheer look or dry for a more striking look.

The thing to remember is a little goes a long way with this one as it is highly pigmented.



Make Up Revolution One Blush Stick

I chose to try the Matte Pink Shade as I love pink blushers for my skin tone and this is very pink! I swatched it on my arm dry (I forgot to do a wet version) and as you can see it is is very vibrant and I found I only need a small amount on my blusher brush.  I have yet to try it wet to see what the sheer version will be like.

Overall at £6 it isn't the cheapest blusher on the market (when you can buy them for £1 ) but I think its great value for money and I love the colour and creaminess of it and the packaging is nice which always draws me in!

I think its fair to say I'm sold and hope to pick up more in different colours!!

The more products I try from Make Up Revolution the more I fall in love with them and next on my list are some of their funky lipsticks!

What would you recommend I try next?
