Penultimate look post with the old hair, though if you really want to see it go to my instagram where I posted a picture of it a while back. Don't know if I mentioned this before but I love this denim jacket from H&M, it's comfortable, thick but not too warm, so perfect for a chilly summer day, love the silver hardware, the distressing on it and the secret pockets inside, which fit my phone perfectly! I'm still on the lookout for a pair of leather sandals, light wash jeans and/or shorts and maybe a straw hat too.

Not For Me: L'oreal Paris Super Liner Slim Intense Eyeliner

Not For Me: L'oreal Paris Super Liner Slim Intense Eyeliner
Quite a few months back I purchased the L'oreal Paris Super Liner Slim Intense Eyeliner as my current eye liner pen was running out. Big. Mistake. I know that sounds a bit dramatic, it wasn't that horrible but I don't think I will be ever purchasing the L'oreal Paris Super Liner Slim Intense Eyeliner again, here's why: 

First of all, the applicator nib/tip/pen is very scratchy, definitely felt the difference from the Maybelline one. 
Second, the pen starts to dry out when you are in the middle of doing your makeup - not very convenient. 
Third: the colour is not as black as the Maybelline one, by the end of it's life, the L'oreal pen was providing me with a lovely sheer black almost grey line. Definitely not what I want. 
Fourth, it doesn't last nearly as long. I remember using the Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner pen for months on end, and with the L'oreal one, after only a couple of months I could already tell it was the beginning of the end (I didn't even use it every single day)
Fifth: the tip of the pen started fraying and the ink wasn't evenly distributed to the tip of the pen, so couldn't use it to get sharp, jet black lines. 
Sixth: the colour fades after a few hours - who has time to reapply eye liner?
Seventh: It's a bit more expensive than the Maybelline one, so I thought I was upgrading my liner but turns out I was actually downgrading and it was a bit of a waste of money because I just didn't love it.

Quite disappointed with this product, but worry not, I've gone back to my trusty Maybelline liner.
If you want to try the L'oreal Paris Super Liner Slim Intense Eyeliner you can find it in Boots.

Finally got to wear my beloved new a-line button up skirt from Topshop, which was great. But then the weather turned into a rainy and cloudy mess, not so great. Anyway, I think this weekend we might be going to Westfield to do a bit of shopping. Hoping to get some of my summer must have and wishlist pieces that I haven't been able to find yet.

On the first day of the month, Dot got me a mug with my initial, it is from Homebase (not pictured but you can see it on my instagram). Then the day after it was bank holiday Monday and we went to Lakeside, where I got my H&M denim jacket - it's quite a fitted style but I wanted it oversized so I got a it couple sizes bigger. 

In Boots I got their free magazine and also Glamour, and since I needed a new conditioner I decided to get the Garnier Ultimate Blends the blonde illuminator conditioner, and since it was on offer I got the blonde illuminator hair oil as well in order to lighten my hair naturally a bit for summer. Needed a new eye liner and mascara as I wasn't loving the ones I was using, so got the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara and the Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Liner; all of these things I got for free with my Boots points ;D

Another item of clothing was this Topshop A-line button up skirt with a retro 60s/70s feel to it. I remember seeing it last year and thinking the style was horrid, but fell in love with it a few months back and kept looking for it in every topshop until I found it at an Outfit shop, tried it on and brought it home with me haha.

Also was in need of a new shampoo and got a basic but really good one from what I remember after using it a couple of years back - the Dove Daily Moisture shampoo (again, not pictured). And last but not least, a pair of rose gold mirrored lens aviator glasses from Primark.

Did you get anything new recently?

Yesterday I went to have my hair cut, I still have some pictures of outfits that I haven't uploaded so you can't see it yet haha. I kept it long but added more layers as it was starting to get a bit too much being nearly all of it the same length. I wanted more of a V shape at the back but the hairdressers thought it would be a good idea to keep it straight so not to lose length on the front. I'm starting to think they can't do anything other than straight cuts.
