Long Time, No see

Long time, no see.

Helllooooo! It's been ages since I have last posted on this because I have been do super busy! 

So just a little note to let you all know what I have been
up to over the past few months. Which actually isn't very much!
I started a new school year this September and am in my final two 
years of it. WOOO! It was very strange mind because a lot of my 
friends have gone and flown the coop (so to speak) and have gone 
off to college :(. It's odd because I am used to a big group of girls, 
but now we are down to nine of us. Sad times. 

I have also been doing my National Youth Theatre of Wales course. It has been such an amazing experience and I have met so many amazing people along the way. I never want it to end! I have also just filled out my form to apply for next year so I will hopefully get to
do it all over again!

Halloween! The most recent holiday to pass us by. I luckily was
invited to a party a week previous to the spooky holiday and went asa vampire with a friend of mine.We made a lot of effort and seeing as we had done this I thought it appropriate to go as generic as possible on the 31st and went as a cat. I know, I know so teenage girl of me. I also made a pretty cool pumpkin of an owl an it looked pretty damn cool!

Anyway I'm in sixth form at the moment and am super busy doing different things but I shall try my best to keep you guys updated.

Lots of Love

Summer style selection

Summer Style selections

So I wanted to do a blog today slightly bored and I also felt like writing so here we go. 
Today I wanted to write about items of clothing that I have (so far) worn a lot and are suitable for the Summer as it get hotter. These items are not something I would pair together as one outfit (maybe you guys would) but they are just singular things that I have a soft spot for. Hope you enjoy x

Cream Maxi dress from H&M
The Maxi Dress 

I find Maxi dresses to be an easy throw on either on the beach or just any day. I like the fact that you can get so many different styles and colours and they suit any shape and size. Mine as you can see from the photo is a cream maxi. It is a light cotton fabric and has a lace strip just under the bust. It also has the same lace panel at the bottom. The back is different as it has a sting like spiderweb effect on the back, it parts off into a sort of triangle between the shoulder blades which I find to be very feminine. Whilst buying this dress cringily I was thinking of Mamma Mia (the film) and the dress that Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) wears at the end. But I really am fond of this dress as it is simple but very elegant. The only downside to this dress is people with a big bust have to buy a larger size as I find H&M sizes for busts to be very hard to get right. But that's just me. I brought this dress last summer an seem to remember it being around £20.00. I think. I'm not sure. 



Patterned top from Primark
As you may be able to see from this blog I am very into my quirky patterned items that are easy to pair with a pair of denim shorts or simple nude items and really have a stand out effect. This top is one that I brought the other day from Primark and was very inexpensive. It was only £10! It a pattern that reminds me of old Victorian tiles ( It's not horrid don't worry). I love the contradiction between the two blues that make the frame of the t-shirt stand out. It cuts just on the line of the torso (across the hips) and is a very light fabric that is perfect for hot summer days. There are hints of red also in this top and it is a button down. I have a lot of love for this top.

Dog tooth print overalls from
Urban Outfitters 

I think that overalls are so easy to throw on over a bikini on the beach to wear around with a crop top or any top underneath and can see you right through any season. These overalls here are from Urban Outfitters and were in the sale a few months ago. You are not really able to see from the photograph but that have a dog tooth print o them in black and white. The have deep side pockets which is very useful and also pockets on the behind. I love these overalls I brought them in a medium which is slightly too big but they didn't have a small so I opted for these which actually turned out to be great. They are fitted but on me are slightly big so I enjoy rolling up the bottom of the shorts and making them look worn. I brought them some time ago but seem to remember them being around £20.00. I'm rubbish at remembering prices my bad, sorry.


The simple vest top

This is something I have worn to death over the last few days. I brought it recently and it was very inexpensive at £5.99 from H&M. I love the H&M basics as you are guaranteed a good quality item of clothing for very little money. This vest top has very low cut sides but I brought it in a large which would be around a size 16-18 and it cuts the middle of my thigh and comes down low under the underarms. (I also love the way that H&M have changed their sizes but that's another thing that I shall talk about another time). It is a dark grey colour and really light weight and is perfect to throw on over the top of anything or with a pair of shorts/ skirt . 

Floral Shirt  from
Urban Outffiters  

Again a quirky patterned top. I also have a thing for collars. This top is perfect for those windier/colder  days but are still a cool addition to the summer wardrobe. The print on the top is a small floral type. It has small red flowers with black stems and in my opinion is very MOD. The sleeves are cuffed with black at the end and have a button around the wrist to secure in place. I think its important to be aware (especially in Britain with our bipolar weather, for instance whilst Americans partied hard in Cochella in their shorts and crop tops it was raining here :( ) that you may need to have a warmer option. I also got this top in the sale section of Urban Outfitters and i have a feeling it was £15 which very good for the quality of the shirt and style

Denim Playsuit from
The Playsuit/Romper 

This Playsuit has served me well. It's something that I will easily pop on with a pair of vans or sandals and head out. It's starting to rip and wear out now but it was a bargain buy from Primark at £12.00 last year and I have worn it to death over the last year. I have worn it through the winter month by throwing on a pair of tights underneath and a thick cardigan/jumper and it has served well. As you can see by the photo there is a light blue floral embroiderd patter on the top of the bust and I find it very cute. I think the Playsuit/ Romper is something everyone should own just because it is so easy to style and wear and you can buy so many different styles to suit so many different shapes and sizes of people. 

                                                                                 The Sgort 

Floral sgort from Primark
I was very apprehensive about trying one of these as I had seen them on other people (one of them being Sammy from beautycrush) and thought they looked amazing on them. But,I wasn't sure about one for myself. I brought this one recently from Primark and I love it. Its a really lovely fabric and works really well with over sized t-shirts or vest tops. It is high waisted so I like to tuck my over sized tops inside and it creates a nice silhouette. It was so inexpensive as well only £7 which for something like this is worth paying. They also had a yellow version of this and many others but, because I am  so pale I went for the pink.

Black floral Kimono from H&M
The Kimono 

Last but certainly not least we have a Kimono. Again I had seen these on other people (Helen melonlady) and thought they looked amazing. They are. They are such an easy thing to style and easy to wear. They suit any body style and you can get them in so many different styles. I got mine from H&M and it was £12.99 which I think is pretty good considering what it is. It is a black Kimono with baby pink and fuchsia flowers on it. It also has white leaf like patterns on it. I brought a size medium which is a size 14 - 16 and too big for me but I like it because it drapes on me and does not swallow my body. It cuts half way between my elbow and wrist and then half way down my thigh. I have actually enjoyed wearing this with the vest top from before a pair of leggings/ black jeans and wedged black sandals. I have to say this is probably my favourite recent purchase.

Thank you again for spending the time to read my blog I am so grateful to you :) If you are interested in following me on Twitter or Instagram and see what I get up to there is a like in the bar on the left side of the page.

Beauty Favourites (cliche I know)

Beauty Favourites 

So I haven't blogged in a while
 because I have been super busy. 
I have had school finishing for 10 
weeks (yeyyy!) and other things going on but, 
I felt BAD so I thought I would write 
an easy blog today about my beauty favourites.

The sun is finally shining here and it is boiling! 
I have had many make up free days as it is just too hot!
But, if I am to wear makeup these are a few of my favourites...

L-R these are the Simple
Kind to skin Purifying
cleansing lotion and
protecting Moisture cream


I am in love with the Simple range as I have senstive skin that can get irritated by heavy cleansers full of chemicals but, Simple as it suggests in the name is Simple. 

Cleansing Lotion 

I can't use a lot of cleansers or makeup removers on my face as it causes my face to go all blotchy and horrible but, THIS THING IS A GOD SENT! I use it every night to get rid of the grimy makeup on my face and it works a treat I cannot praise a product more. It is a light non - greasy feeling texture and doesn't feel like you are layering it on. It removes any makeup you have left on and leaves skin feeling smooth and fresh. 

Moisture cream 

This moisturiser is perfect for summer time as it contains SPF 10 in it. It is perfect for those days when you don't feel like putting on a lot of makeup or nothing at all. It is a light moisturiser and works really well. I always feel as if my skin is softer and less dry after using it. I use it every morning before applying my make up and then (if I feel I need to) before I go to bed at night. 

Bourjois Paris Healthy Mix serum

The next favourites is a gel foundation by Bourjois Paris called healthy mix serum with a pump nozzle. I love this foundation and have tried a MAC and a Rimmel and they do not compare to this one for me. I like a light coverage in a foundation that doesn't look like you have caked make up all over your face and this does not disappoint. I got it in the shade 52 Vanille/Vanilla. This suits my skin perfectly and I find throughout the day it lasts but also tends to look more similar to my skin tone. It also smells amazing! 


Boujour Paris Volume Glamour
Ultra Black Mascara  
To be honest this has to be my favourite mascara of all time. It is the Boujour Paris (yes again) Volume Glamour ultra black mascara. I like a mascara to make my lashes longer and also to make them more defined. This mascara does just that. It isn't clumps and last all day long. I love it! It makes my lashes appear longer and thicker in just one coat and also it really easy to apply.  


Benefit High Beam Highlighter 
My Favourite Highlighter has got to be the Benefit High Beam. It gives good coverage and last all throughout the day and into the night. I don't feel like it wears off very easily. It is easy to blend and is very subtle. The only thing I would say about this is don't put a lot on because 1. You don't need that much to make an impact with this 2. you end up looking like some sort of alien with glittery skin because it gets harder to blend the more you put on. So watch out for that. Other that that I really enjoy using this. 

I am not actually sure if Perfume is considered as a beauty item but I'm going to include them any way because it's part of what I wear.

Loverdose by Diesel (Purple)
This perfume is probably my favourite perfume of all time. I wear it as a day perfume even though some may say it's probably more suited to night. I love the way it starts off as a liquorice type of smell and then throughout the day the you start smelling undertones of vanilla and then before you know it it becomes a vanilla scent all together. I have worn this perfume for the last few years (and as you can see by the picture I may need a new one)  and have never really found anything I like wearing more. It is my favourite! 

Hope you enjoyed reading about my favourites and continue to read my blogs. I really appreciate it. Feel free to give my Twitter (@Malsenn) and Instagram ( @malsenn) a follow to keep you updated and see when I post next .

See you soon

Sun's out! Lets go for a picnic.

Sun's out! Lets go for a picnic.

Fun in the sun 
So this is my first blog. I am a new bee. Honestly I'm not exactly sure what to write about so I thought maybe I should just tell you about my day and what happened today.

So where I live it is not very sunny. More of a dark part of the world where sun avoids at all costs and rain takes pride in washing the streets. Today was different. The sun was actually shining. So naturally being a teenager who has just finished (or mostly finished) her exams we decided to go out and enjoy. 

It was lovely! The sun was glowing and we had a Beats pill that was blaring the sounds of summer. We had packed some food and decided to have a picnic all together. We played with the frezbee (I'm not really sure how you spell that) and went on adventures in the woods.It was an amazing day and I really enjoyed. 

Short and sweet but I want to use this as a platform. I'm thinking of starting a youtube channel soon so I shall keep people posted on that.
