What I Wore: The Little Blue Dress



So this is probably my first outfit post! I usually define my style as incredibly feminine with perhaps a vintage twist and classic feel. I do enjoy my Adidas kicks, a pair of tight black jeans and a cute baggy top on from time to time too. 

But when I get the chance I love to go all out and dress as pretty as possible! I am really loving lace and all these beautiful ruffles at the moment too, I continue to see them pop up each time I head on to Instagram or in stores. You can never have enough ruffle and lace in my opinion anyway! 

The fabric is woven with broderie anglaise too with at least three layers of frills,  a frilly front and back too, the waist is gathered seam and the skirt flared with lining included. 

I had my eye on this gorgeous blue dress from H&M and I thought it would be perfect for this summer. It's baby blue which is a colour I don't own as much so I thought the switch from my usual white and black was a change.

A good one though! I'm glad I did buy it because this dress as received so many compliments. It was a little pricey... but it is a dress which would look lovely on occasions too as well as the odd sunny day out.

Plus the quality is fairly decent too and I would rather pay for a dress which compliments my style, rather than a cheaper dress that miss the mark and fall apart in the wash after the first wear. 

The sizing for this dress only goes from S/M and M/L so I would advice anyone around a size 10/12 to just go for the smaller size because it's incredibly loose. It's like a tent! Its super loose and comfy though which is a bonus! 

The cut is just up my street too which lands just above the knee - I'm 5'8 and for me it feels perfectly fine. I love how the ruffles on the shoulders look when wearing the dress as it makes me feel like I am being whizzed away to Wonderland... it feels classical and cute



To finish off I paired the dress with these black double strap shoes from ASOS which gives the outfit a slightly dolly but retro kind of vibe. I added my trusty pink watch on too (I never go anywhere without it!) and topped the look off with my cat eye leopard sunglasses. 

I like to imagine this look stirs in the cutesy direction but with a grown up appeal applied to it as well. I am all for dolly and adorable but I don't like to overdo it too much. 

However I am pleased with this first outfit post!

Featuring 'Classic Petite' Daniel Wellington's New Collection!


I am very pleased to announce that the beloved and well known watch brand Daniel Wellington has recently released their newest collection "Classic Petite" which is a gorgeous range of elegance you are able to wear daily on the go. 

Daniel Wellington was extremely kind enough to send me a beautiful Classic Petite Bondi watch in the rose gold edition. How amazing is that?! I would say pretty bloody amazing. 

I'm head over heels in love with it too! It's just stunning and I have been wearing it ever since I received it. 

I adore how it has a timeless appeal to it but the rose gold brings the watch into modern day. 

The Classic Petite Bondi comes in the colours rose gold and silver however I ended up going with the rose gold. For those who read my blog you all probably know I am just obsessed with rose gold and couldn't pass up that opportunity! 

It's very delicate and tiny which is what I treasure about this watch as it is simply just enough and not one of those huge bulky watches. 

The smaller the better in my opinion when it comes to watches - plus I think the sizing makes it very stylish as does the colour white that meshes perfectly with the rose gold. The white gives the watch a fresh appearance and since the collection was released this summer - personally though I think it's the best colour scheme





In terms of the quality I find that the watch is excellent with an extremely firm band and buckle with loops through without struggle. I also find it very endearing to see the "DW" engraved there too. It's just a sweet little personal touch. 

The strap is genuine leather as well so I expect great wear out of this watch and I hope that the white doesn't peel within time too quickly. I have had other watches before today and they have gone really quickly on me or the strap has eroded after a few wears which is no good. So only time will tell with the new Classic Petit Bondi watch. 

It works perfectly fine as well and I have had no trouble when it came to operating the watch. 

So far so good! 






For those reading who are interesting and would like their very own Classic Petit Bondi watch you are able to get a discount of 15% by using "CHEYANNE15" but hurry! It only lasts until the 15th of July 2017. 

What are your thoughts on the new Classic Petit Bondi watches? Impressed? I most certainly am!

Introducing Pretty Vulgar! The Prettiest New Cosmetics Brand Going!



So we are already aware of the existing cutesy brands such as Too Faced, Revolution, Etude House and other various ones but now there is a new addition to that variety which is Pretty Vulgar

Around a couple of months ago I was messaged about Pretty Vulgar by another blogger friend of mine and I had a look around at their Instagram page where all their new items were being advertised.   

I was just amazed by how gorgeous everything was because everything literally meets my taste from the dippings of rose gold applied to their products, the gorgeous floral prints and vintage theme Pretty Vulgar has going on. I instantly had heart in my eyes and I craved everything. 

Sadly Pretty Vulgar are only based in the US at the moment however you are able to purchase on their official website as they do offer international shipping. Also Sephora is holding the brand at their stores and online store too so you are definitely able to get hold of Pretty Vulgar's items. 

Hopefully Beauty Bay may eventually begin to get in some of the Pretty Vulgar products as well since they do sell a lot of international beauty products too, making it easy in terms of cheaper shipping and dodging customs completely. Luckily I did not have to pay any custom fees and the products came straight to my doorstep. 

I would definitely say this brand is slowly becoming one of my favourites from the pretty packaging to the quality of their products - it has all been fantastic. 



The Feathers - Mascara 

I just absolutely adore this mascara I think it's so unique and beautiful! I have never seen a mascara like this before either. Its a birdcage and the little bird at the top just makes me squeal everything I get it out of its box! So cute! 

Pretty Vulgar's mascara "The Feathers" is of decent quality I would say although like any mascara at first it is bounce to be slightly blotchy. Eventually the formula will even out so you won't end up with bat wings for eye lashes. It's a very high volume mascara I would say and the brush is curved in a way which will lift you eye lashes, enhancing a high volume, lengthy and curled appearance. 

I find it very easy to apply as I do tend to use these type of brushes fairly often, however it may not be to everyones taste depending on the types of mascara brushes you are usually comfortable with. 

The forumla is combined with vitamin B5 including sodium hyaluronate helping moisture and thickness of your lashes. But due to this blend the outcome you get from this mascara is a blotch-free and long lasting finish. 

Once I have finished this mascara I think I would probably re-buy it but mostly for the design more so than anything else. I use this mascara sparingly most of the time though simply because I just find it too beautiful to keep using! So I would rather save it if anything.





Bury Them With A Smile Lipstick - Shade "Back Stabber"



This lipstick is by far my favourite at the moment and must have for anyone out there who is after a new shade! I haven't stopped using it since I purchased this either. Every single day I've been using it - long gone the usage of my Mac lippies in exchange for this baby! 

The quality is incredibly good and it has surprised me because I was a bit unsure when I bought this that the quality may not meet my expectations. But since the launch was over in America originally and there was no way to really see these lipsticks in person apart from Youtube videos or just basing what I see in the adverts online. 

It isn't always easy to distinguish what you see in photographs and videos as the product may be completely different in your own hands. So I went in for the kill and just ordered one (not because the packaging is beautiful... okay maybe that too!). 

In general I find that their matte lipstick's formula incredibly firm but it isn't dry and it's very high definition. Due to it being matte as well Pretty Vulgar's lipstick is also super saturation too which accomplishing long lasting coverage on your lips. Also delivering hydrating oils and butters so that your stay fresh and beautiful. 

There is also 7 other shades available and I purchased "Back Stabber" which is this lovely dark red with a tint of fuchsia thrown in for good measure. It's a bit darkeron your lips compared to the photographs shown on their website I think but it's near the same colour.

I love this shade either way and I think it goes amazing with all my current summer outfits. I feel extremely confident and gorgeous every time I apply this colour. I just think it's perfect. 

I would definitely repurchase this lipstick and probably a couple more from Pretty Vulgar now that I am aware their lipsticks are great quality. Plus I have been eyeing their liquid lipsticks too and I really want to give those a try! Hopefully they are just as decent as their matte lipsticks. 




In terms of the price range for Pretty Vulgar's items is fairly good I think especially for what you get in return. I would say it is no more expensive than Mac and NYX at best. 

Mascara - £18.50

Lipstick - £18.50




Now I would like to know what do you think of Pretty Vulgar so far? Would you buy anything from this brand or not?  Thank you for reading!

Here Is Why You Will Adore Benefit Cosmetics Boi-ing Airbrush Concealer!


If you are already a hardcore Benefits Cosmetics fan then perhaps you already know about the new launch this month featuring three different concealers. 

But for those who don't you are in for such a treat! As Benefits Cosmetics have released their Boi-ing concealer with a whole new pretty pink packaging design along with the Boi-ing Hydrating concealer and lastly the product being the Boi-ing Airbrush concealer which is new to the Boi-ing Benefit Cosmetics family. 

Now this is actually the first concealer I have purchased from Benefit as I usually just opt for their eyebrow products if I am honest. But since I was running out of my favourite NYX concealer I thought I would give something else a try and after seeing other bloggers reveal the new Benefits Cosmetics concealers - despite falling in love with the adorable packaging, I thought I would give the new Boi-ing Airbrush concealer a run for its money. 


My skin tone is always a bit of a nuisance when it comes down to foundations because not only am I fussy with the formula as my skin type is very oily in general. But then there is matching and my skin has a yellowish tinge so sometimes I find products look either too light or dark on me which is annoying.

I already knew right away that I would have to get this product in the No. 3 since No. 2 after trying a swatch of it in store was a bit too light.

I thought that No.3 was far more ideal and I am glad I went with this choice in the end actually. It's a perfect match!

So I have been using this past week during my usual morning make up routine, I find the formula extremely creamy but also holding silky tinge to it as well. It's fairly light which is what I really like about it and smoothing some under my eyes I noticed that it isn't as dry looking compared to other concealers I've used in the past. 

Some I have used from brands such as Maybelline or Sleek but they have been either too patchy, flakey with bits of crumble coming off or chalky. You can imagine how pleased I am with this concealer though... 

Although due to the formula's coverage being only subtle it won't cover amazingly huge circles but just enough to make them not as obvious.

Also having tried some on my blemishes over on my forehead and chin I find it does the job fairly nicely which is exactly what I am after when I purchase a concealer. I like them to be not too cakey but just enough to make my flaws look minor at best. 



So for the price of £17.50 I do think that the new Boi-ing Airbrush concealer is worth the money but only if you would use this on pretty much an everyday basis more or less.

It's handy for work to keep in your handbag for when you need that quick top up in the loo or at university on days where you have those killer early morning lectures but perhaps you don't want to give away the obvious to your tutor that you stayed up all night partying. 

Then there is if you are like me and can't be bothered to put on a face of make up so a dap of concealer over your tired is the way to go for when you want to just nip to Tesco! With the way I'm going with this concealer it will probably be gone by the end of next month... 

You can purchase here on Benefit Cosmetics official website or over at Boots where they retail it there as well. 



But what do you think of the new Airbrush Boi-ing concealer? Would you give it a go? Let me know!

Want To See Whats On My July Beauty Wishlist? Come See!


Ah so here we are again... make up, more make up and even more make up. But can a lady really have too much? Nah, not really! 

So what exactly is on my July wishlist this pay day? Well for one there is so many gorgeous new products out right now that it was very difficult for me to even choose. Also is it me or is make up packaging just becoming cuter and cuter these days? Compared to a few years ago there was still lovely packaging around but nowadays everything is looking better than ever!

Still though I have managed to narrow my pickings down and here I have popped up my favourites from different brands. 




2. Mary Kay - Baked Heart Blush

3. Nailsinc - Unicorn Face Mask

4. Miss Patisserie - Rainbow River Bath Bomb

5. Pixi - Peel And Polish 

6. Estee Lauder - Double Wear Foundation 

7. Too Faced - Hangover Setting Pray

8. Yves Saint Laurent - Touche Eclat Glow Shot

9. Ciate - Bamboo Bronzer

10. Becca Cosmetics - Liquid Crystal Glow Gloss



I really adore these themed face masks by Nailsinc! They even have a bunny and deer one too but the unicorn one has my heart. I'm slowly starting to love the unicorn trend thats going on at the moment as well. I usually buy my face masks from Skin Food or Tony Moly which are Korean brands and they do cutesy type of masks too. 

Plus I have yet to even try the hangover primer by Too Faced but the setting spray is more ideal for  me I think because I tend to use them more. 

Also Miss Patisserie has definitely caught my eye in these passing weeks, everything I go into Boots I always have a nosey at the range. I love how they're vegan and all their products are made with natural based ingredients. They always smell amazing! I reckon they will possibly compete against Lush in the future too. They're within the same price range too so it isn't too bad. 

These are just a few things I'm craving but I would like to know what it is you currently want too! What are you lusting over this month or planning to buy? Please share!
