Chocolate Swirl Cheescake

My best friend has just returned from 3 months of travelling around China and she hosted a dinner party to celebrate her return. We had such a great evening and it was so great to catch up with all my friends that I haven't seen whilst I've been at university. She made a lovely lasagne with salad and garlic bread teamed with lots of wine! Then she gave us a slideshow of her travelling photos whilst we had tea and dessert. I offered to bring the dessert. Me and my family bake a lot, mostly cupcakes, but I wanted to try something different. I found a chocolate swirl cheesecake recipe by Gordan Ramsey and thought I'd give it a go, and (thank god) it tasted awesome! I will definitely be making this again!

Who Wore It Better?

This lacy lingerie maxi dress by Kristian Aanevik has proved quite the hit among hot young celebs. Selena Gomez rocked the racy creation for a music video for her new song Come & Get It. A couple of weeks later Once Upon A Time star Jennifer Morrison looked sexy in the dress at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas

Instagram My Week

(1) My sister sent me a picture of her before her prom, I was gutted I wasn't there to see her, but she looked gorgeous!
(2) Last Saturday I was doing last minute revision for my exam later that day.
(3) I was walking through Oxford on Saturday evening and I thought this looked really eerily cool!
(4) This is a really cute photo of me and my cousins when we were little - I love how hyper we all look!

Summer Clutch

 Just a quick post to show you the gorgeous clutch I just bought! I found it in TK Maxx (or TJ Maxx for those of you outside the UK) for just £19.99, down from £28.00! It's from a brand called LYDC, which I had never heard of before, but I found their website and they have some awesome bags so click here to check it out! I thought this would be a cute clutch for summer and I love that it's neon pink; it livens up my collection because most of my bags are nude, beige or black.

Inside My Make-Up Bag

I am a make-up junkie; I have way too many products and am always trying out new ones. I am always going back and forth between home and university and every time I take my make-up bag with the few products I swear by and use every day.
My make-up is carried about in this cute Ted Baker bag that I got for my birthday this year. Inside it I have my MAC Pro Longwear SPF 10 Foundation in NC42 colour. I have been using this for 2 years now, and love that it feels light and lasts. I also use a MAC Studio Fix Powder Foundation in colour NC43 which I uses a Kabuki brush to apply. Underneath my foundation I use Benefit 'That Girl' Primer. When it comes to eyeliner, I am very indecisive as to what I prefer; I have the Models Own Kohl Pencil which has a smudger and sharpener lid, which is my favourite. The smudger makes it perfect for smokey eyes or a grudgy eye look. I also use the Rimmel Exaggerate Liquid Eyeliner and an eyeliner pen from Primark of all places! I use is Sublime de Chanel Mascara which is by far the best mascara I have ever owned. I have quite short eyelashes naturally, and this mascara is so good at lengthening and curling. For my eyebrows I use a Rimmel London Professional Eye Brow Pencil. I also have a powder that I use as I find this looks more natural, but I seem to have misplaced it! Lastly, for my lips i am constantly applying Vaseline Lip Therapy, my favourite is with rose and almond oil. I also love the Clinique Chubby Stick as a lip balm with colour. I prefer this to lipsticks for a more natural day time look. My favourite shade is Richer Raisin.

Ahoy There!

It's coming up quickly to the end of my first university year and I can't believe how quickly it's gone! Year one is over already and it has been amazing! I can't wait for year two; my friends and I have found a gorgeous flat for next year which I can't wait to move in to and I am excited to continue my course.
On Tuesday, my university held their annual end of term boat party. It was such an amazing way to celebrate the year before all our exams start. The dress code was 'smart/casual' (so vague!). I chose to wear a black vest with a colourful aztec skirt, which was only £8.00 from Primark! I accessorised with a chunky gold necklace and black court heels, both from New Look.
My outfit (sorry for the crappy photos!)

My friends and I on the boat!
