FEATURED: PRIMARK DRESS, ASOS DENIM SHIRT, TOPSHOP BOOTS, TOPSHOP NECKLACE 


As you can tell this is an old outfit, I'd definitely catch my death if I wore this out now, it's bloody freezing in Oxford! This dress was only a tenner from Primark and after originally buying it for a fancy dress night, I've decided that I actually quite like it. I'm not really a fan of the camel colour on me but I wouldn't say I look absolutely awful in it! I've paired it with my tassle boots which just adds more of a statement as I wouldn't say the denim shirt and jumper combo is very ground-breaking! 

And now for a little update on my life as well. I'm not having the best time right now after a few things that have occurred in the past few weeks so forgive me for my absence! I'm soldiering on though and it's given me more motivation to post higher quality content on my blog and also to live a healthier lifestyle. I'm trying to build up my fitness which seems to have diminished over recent years and work out once a day be that a run or a home routine. It's going well so far and I've massively surprised myself. Being the girl that used to get out of breath climbing up the stairs to now running for twenty minutes straight is a huge achievement for me. Please don't laugh, I'm being serious! I may post about my fitness 'journey', ergh shudder - I hate that word, so let me know if you're into that kinda stuff! 

The NARSissist Palette

NARS Narsissist Palette Blog Review


Disclaimer: I'm not actually lucky enough to own this gorgeous palette so a big thank you to my friend Kitty who's lent it to me for the sake of this post.

NARS Narsissist Palette Blog ReviewNARS Narsissist Palette Blog Review

The NARSissist Palette features 3 compact blushers, a highlighter, a bronzing powder and a lip gloss. Perfect to take on a night out for those little touch ups. Everything comes in this beautiful looking box which is such a convenient size to fit in your bag and my favourite thing, inside the lid is a mirror!



The first layer comprises of three blushers: Enrapture, Enthralled and Roman Holiday. All of which are pigmented but also blend beautifully to create a really natural look. Enthralled is the only shimmery shade (the others are matte) which has really fine specks of glitter running through it. The only disappointing thing about the blushers is that they are all limited edition *cry*.

The lipgloss in the shade Istria initially looks like a bright pink Barbie colour but once swatched it's almost translucent with a bit of shimmer running through it. It's also very glossy, too glossy for me as I never tend to stray far from matte shades but just bear that in mind.

The second layer contains a highlighter and bronzer. I've never seen the Albatross highlighter in the flesh before and I wasn't expecting it to be that white. It looks gorgeous on the skin and adds a really subtle highlight to the cheek bones. Then we've got our classic Laguna bronzing powder. I'm personally not really a fan of this as it's a tad too dark for me but it's a notorious product nonetheless. 

So here's a run down of the shades:
Enrapture - Pink terracotta
Enthralled - Toasted Rose with shimmer
Roman Holiday - Pastel with a hint of pink
Istria - Pink glacĂ© 
Albatross - Luminous glow
Laguna - Diffused brown with golden shimmer

I really love this palette, can't say I'd really use it much in the winter but for spring/summer I think it's definitely a good shout!

A Casual Valentine's Outfit

FEATURED: TOPSHOP SHIRT, MANGO LEATHER JACKET, ASOS JEANS, RIVER ISLAND HAT, DEENA AND OZZY BOOTS, CHANEL CLUTCH

With Valentine's Day approaching quickly, I've been thinking of more casual numbers to throw on. Neither me or Toby are really ones to get all dressed up and go out for a fancy dinner so this is an outfit more suitable for a day out in London or just a relaxed drink which is what I like. I've kept it simple with just black and white but in hindsight I wish I had put on some red lippy! 

The perfect book for Valentine's Day


FEATURED: ME, YOU, US BOOK

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, it's time to start panic buying presents for your loved ones be that boyfriends, girlfriends, family or friends and I've got an idea that you won't want to miss. My Mum bought me and Toby this book for Christmas to fill out together. It's a really sweet idea that you can work through the book or just fill out random pages whenever you feel like it. There's some funny pages where you can write about what ice cream flavour you'd be and some slightly deeper ones about what you love about each other but it's all good fun! It's only £12 and I think it would make the perfect present!

Katy Stephenson The Rawrdrobe Blog Adidas Trainers

FEATURED: ADIDAS VEST TOP, MANGO LEATHER JACKET, ASOS JEANS, MULBERRY BAG, ADIDAS TRAINERS, NEW LOOK BEANIE

This is one of my recent 'throw on' outfits which suits any casual occasion whether that's running errands or going to college. The trainers are literally the most comfortable pair I own and kinda look like they should actually be running trainers but since I never do that, they work well with a pair of jeans!
