I think these pictures are over edited but I'm still getting used to the whole editing on Photoshop,  I don't know why but I always seem to struggle. 
So the other day the weather was not too bad and I was able to rock a crop top, which is not something I usually do and may I say i'm actually wearing my Topshop jeans for once. For some reason I never find the right time to wear them but finally that day has come.

I'm really hoping this Christmas holidays I get to do more YouTube videos, i'm lacking so much, last year I was doing well at doing regular videos, but this year it's super hard. 

Is anyone else in the same boat as me, second year of college and still have no idea what you're doing  next year. I am. It's so hard I want to do a foundation course in film making but the college I want to do it at only does it in photography, i'm tempted.. but am I just doing it for the sake of it. I mean I do love photography, I love doing my own fashion shoots or photos that tell a story. If anyone's interested in a blog post of them, I'm more than happy to share with you guys. 

Well I hope you had a great weekend, see you soon xo

I seem have drawn a liking to the forest vibe location wise for a blog post, I don't think I have done any or many at all but after this blog post I really love the area that I have chosen. Today, I had a five hour gap for college and what better way to kill off time with a quick blog post. Photo and edit credits go to my good friend Raul, which may I say is a fabulous job, I may need his help more often?

So recently the cold weather has definitely kicked in a lot more so i'm in the midst of doing a Winter Lookbook for YouTube and trying to dig out my warm clothes. It just hasn't been the coldest winter in England lately I have to admit, but it looks like I should not of jinx that because it is approaching. How crazy is it? We are already in December, it still feels like October still. Am I the only one who wears leggings under jeans when it's cold? A lot people find that strange but I don't care as long as i'm warm, however I do need to make sacrifices for fashion..

I can't believe it i'm at 69 followers ( must not be immature) on my GFC, I was excited that I hit 50 the other day, could I make it to 100 by Christmas, I hope so that would be the best Christmas gift I think, no hinting at all there. ;)

Anyway how's everyone's first day of December going I hope you had a fabulous day and hopefully see you in my next blog post.

Finally the Christmas lights are out and the hot chocolates pounce out for the cold weather, although I must say it's not that cold to how it usually is this time of the year, does anyone else agree? I am so excited for Christmas it's my favourite time of the year, everything in general about it. The snuggling up in bed watching movies, spending time with family,the beautiful lights round the city, it just puts you in a much better mood.
The sound of going to Winter Wonderland sounds perfect, it looks like the place to be near christmas time, i've wanted to go every year, so fingers crossed I get to go this year?
I hope you all are having a fabulous week and enjoy your weekend.

Glossybox | October Edition

Glossybox | October Edition
Friday, 14 November 2014
Read post
Wow this is a late post to say the least,but I might as well post it anyway? This October I received my  October GlossyBox, which contained 5 Products: 
Nuxe - Masque Creme Fraiche. Ciate - Nail polish, So Susan - Mascara, Yves Rocher Perfume, Rimmel - BB Cream.

First things first ( I'm a realist - doing a bit of Iggy Azalea there) I got Nuxe Masque Creme Fraiche, which is basically a moisturizing mask, you leave it on for 10 minutes and any excess product you rub lightly into your skin. This I must say was amazing, my face felt so soft afterwards, it kinda made me forget about the breakout on my forehead and draw my attention to how soft my skin felt. On that note, i've only used it once * Gets Nuxe packet*. 


The next product I got which I was very pleased to get was a Ciate nail polish and to make matters better it was in Black, which is perfect because i've been meaning to get a black nail polish for a very long time. I've heard a lot of great reviews of Ciate nail polishes so i'm looking forward to using this. I was going to apply it yesterday, so I could say my review on it, but i'll try keep you posted. But C'mon look at the cute little bow, it's such a lovely yet simple packaging.


Excuse the amount of concealer I have got on the mascara, my concealer may have leaked all in my make-up bag .. rather than doing it's job and covering up blemishes. Anywho, the next product I got was the So Susan mascara, personally I did not really like this product I found it dries super super slowly so you're left with the unpleasant mascara round your face look, not a pretty sight. In the sense of doing it's job in general rather than the drying, its average. I found it didn't really stand out to me and my eyelashes didn't really have that nice look that the benefit mascara gives you, however it does pursue more of a natural look, so it's great if you're looking for just a bit of kick to your lashes. Obviously, I don't go for the whole spiders on eyes look, but the minimal fluttery eyelashes I die for.


The next product I received was the Yves Rocher perfume in a sampler size, I absolutely adore the whole packaging I think it will look so cute in my bedroom, that reminds me very soon you may see a bedroom tour coming, so ya know stay tuned for that. Back to the point, it's quite a nice scent but i'm more of a sweet perfume gal, this is more targeted at a older age group I would say. I'm very bad at explaining scents, so it's a bit of a struggle to say precisely what the scent is like .


Lastly, I received Rimmel BB Cream in sampler sized, I found this was not too bad, it does the job but I wouldn't rush to the shop to get it. I think this is more of the sense of that it doesn't suit my skin and tone, the colour I had received was a little too dark for me as i'm very pale, so maybe it's easier to say my opinion if it was lighter? One thing that did intrigue me and that I particularly liked was the matte finish it had.



    

If you would like to check out my video and subscribe to my channel it would mean the world to me, This week I will be having a reading week at college so I should be able to film videos for my channel and upload them throughout the week, as lately my content has been a little less regular due to my work load. But this girls back and I'm hoping for a long time tehe.

Thanks, I hope you have a fabulous weekend and see you in my next post or video maybe ?

Mac - Pink Treat Review

Mac - Pink Treat Review
Monday, 20 October 2014
Read post



Hi everyone, sorry it's been so long everything's been so hectic at college lately, but I have finally found the time this evening to do a quick blog post. You must excuse the terribly applied lipliner and picture and off cause dry nose, i've been a bit ill lately, but finally i'm feeling better.

Back to the point, I thought I should do a blog post on the lipliner ' Pink Treat' by mac, this one is more creamier than the normal lipliners and more of a nice precise look. I find this is a lot easier to apply then normal lipliners and being a liner it gives much more of an on point lip look, if you get what I mean? Like I find with most Mac products, this is very long lasting.

This picture does not give it enough justice, this product leaves such a beautiful shade on your lips and I find it suits me perfectly, I wish I could of found it sooner! If you may be trying to recreate Kylie Jenner's lip look, you may want to try this. It is not the exact same but it is a little similar. However it is nice to use with Whirl and Soar being out of stock in my local store.

So I definitely recommend getting this lipliner if you're looking for a new colour in your lip collection, you definitely wont regret it.

 Aviva Dresses


Lately I've been trying my best to get my blog game on, because it is my favorite thing to do at the moment. I'm looking forward to ending college to maybe even make it a daily thing ( that's hoping my schedule will be a lot less hectic) ? 

I expect recently a lot of you eager beavers may be on the search for your prom dresses or you may have found that lucky someone and preparing for a wedding. Well, I have the perfect place for you ' http://www.avivadress.co.uk/ '. They provide a variety of dresses at a incredibly competitive prices being : Prom Dresses, Long Prom Dresses, Short Prom Dresses, Evening Dresses, Formal Dresses, Cocktail Dresses, Bridesmaid dresses etc. 

I remember back when it was my prom, I was searching for dresses very early on and still getting stressed that I was never finding anything. Aviva dresses have a large variety of different style dresses and you will find a lot of dresses you have had your eye on at a much better price, isn't that what we all want ? 

Dresses are are important for occasions, as they will make a statement and it will be your day of feeling beautiful, that's why you really need a dress that suits you and your personality. Who wouldn't want to glam up? Dressing up gives you so much more confidence and that is much needed. 



I've chosen a couple of dresses which may be perfect for Prom or even an evening out. However, I think the white dress may be a little more versatile for that.

White Tulle Prom Dress : I feel this is quite simple yet so beautiful, I adore the detailing on the top and the whole structure of the dress. I've always loved this type of skirt on a dress. I have my aunties wedding soon, who knows I may be wearing this ? Well, I may be too late, it's next week, eek.

My second dress I have chosen is this Pink Long Prom Dress, I feel you could really stand out wearing this dress. It looks a little more individual than the others as it has a fish net sort of material at the top, It is girly yet, it at a unique approach to it.


I don't think I will be planning on getting married anytime soon, but I don't know about you sometimes I just love looking at Wedding Dresses. I'm not sure maybe that's just me ? However, I really love this wedding dress, it's so elegant and beautiful, it has such a nice lace detailing to it, which would be perfect for a wedding. I particularly love the bottom of the dress, it is not too long, sometimes dresses make them ridiculously long so that you cant walk. But I think it's just my personal preference as I'm pretty clumsy.

Vagabonds Lookbook


Recently, I have uploaded a video on my YouTube channel SapphireSays. Unfortunately, I only got round to doing 3 outfits, but I was so determined to get it uploaded I had to finish it there, I filmed the first 2 at the very very start of September, I had no patience to wait.

I thought I should do this video because I absolutely adore my vagabond boots, I now own two different shoes by Vagabond, i'm falling in love. I've been wearing these boots non stop, that iv'e completely forgot about my other shoes, oops. But, I must say these boots are just perfect for the autumn weather, which i'm very much looking forward to but at the same time I'm not, I have mixed thoughts on the weather. I guess I just like the idea of being all cosy away from the weather ha!

I should be doing a Autumn look book soon and a Autumn Haul, that's if I can raise the money for these close, i'm a bit of a poor student right now, if only I had the time for a job! :' (

Anyways, I'm off to bed now, I have a early morning ahead of me. It would mean the world to me if you check out my newest video and subscribe to my channel! Literally, you would make my day tehe! While you're there if you have a channel too, comment on the video with your channel, i'd love to check it out when I have the time :)

Night Guys, speak soon!

Autumn's Approaching

Finally, i've had the chance to do another outfit of the day, it looks like its gonna have to be a weekend thing and possibly in my college gaps. It's annoying because i'm so determined to do more posts, blogging is what I love and it makes me sad that I can't do it more often.

Anyway this is just a quick comment, as I'm actually in class now and supposed to be doing work, oops.

Here I'm probably wearing my most loved autumn outfit, I feel its so simple yet unique in the sense? I think the duster jacket really makes the whole outfit!

September Glossybox | Karren Millen

September Glossybox | Karren Millen
Saturday, 20 September 2014
Read post


For those of you that do not know what a Glossybox is, it is a monthly subscription box that will usually contain 5 beauty products, however sometimes I have had more than 5. The box costs only £10 pound in price and has products by brands such as: Sleek, Lancome, Clarins etc. 

This months box had an elegant look to it as it was designed by Karren Millen, so not the usual simple pink box. It is always exciting to have this come to your door each month, unfortunately this is my last box for the time being, but we can hope I carry on getting them. 

I feel kinda cheeky writing this post as I have only tested a few of the items, forgive me. So as I said before their are 5 products:

ModelCo - MORE BROWS Fibre Gel -
"This innovative brush-on fibre gel gives the appearance of fuller, 
thicker brows instantly. " 

I completely forgot I tried this product, but it may be pointless me using it anyway, because you rarely see my eyebrows due to my fringe. I'm also currently growing my eyebrows out to get them waxed. However, I did indeed use this product and felt it may have made my eyebrows look a bit too thick or it was too dark, I couldn't tell properly as it was a late evening ? But maybe I just wasn't applying it properly, but personally it just didn't work well for me. However, I am gonna blame the fact that my eyebrows look silly anyway at the moment, so maybe it just highlighted that ? 

L' Oreal Professional - Mythic Masque-
" This Masque is designed to intensely nourish and replenish the hair, 
for an effortlessly glossy-looking result."

I haven't had the chance to try this yet unfortunately, but I will try and maybe keep you posted if I feel it worked well. But I must say the product smells wonderful.  For this product you are supposed to apply it to towel-dried hair and leave in for 3 minutes before rinsing. This product should leave your hair looking shiny and a 'airy touch'.

SkinPep - Enzyme and Acid Peel and Peeling Gel -
" This highly effective peeling gel uses pineapple and papaya extracts 
to create gently exfoliated, soft and bright skin."

I literally just used this product about 20 minutes ago and I must say without a doubt it's the nicest product i've ever used. The first one I used was for my face and my god my skin has never felt so soft in my life and it looked so bright. It has given me so much better confidence of my skin, even though I have a bit of acne. 
The only downside is the price, which I do not want to repeat it. If you do have money I would highly recommend this product or even just use a sampler. 

This product also came with an under eye dark circle remover, which obviously did not get rid of it completely, but I could definitely notice a difference. My under eyes are terrible, but with this product I noticed a difference within 5 minutes ( maybe less). 

Nails Inc - Westminster Bridge Matte Top Coat - 
" The matte effect top coat gives you two very different looks for every one of your nail polishes. The perfect way to add a unique twist to your favourite shades." 

I used this product with my Yves Rocher nail polish in 'Vernis', this is a pale pink tone. They actually worked very well together. I've used matte nail polish before but never one as good as this one, the good thing is it's fast drying, which it didn't actually state. If you know me, you'll know how impatient I am when it comes to painting nails, so this works fabulous for me.

Vichy - Normaderm Night Detox and Hydrating Care -
"Use this around the clock routine to target adult blemishes." 

The last product I got was from Vichy, which is quite annoying as I got another item similar to this by Vichy in my last glossybox, which is something I don't really need. But i guess I could just give it to a friend or my Mum or something? 

In my opinion this box wasn't the best box I got but still had products that suited me well. If you haven't already it would mean the world to me if you check out my YouTube video on this and subscribe to my channel, if you have a channel too let me know, we could be YouTube buddy's ;)

Speak soon

Leathers A Winner

Here is just a quick update of what I was wearing yesterday, it's very hard to balance blogging with college, yes the miserable amount of coursework has came back to haunt me again, typical. I should really be doing my media course work right now but lets keep this a secret between you and me. I have a insane amount of gaps so I am trying to do my pictures etc in my gaps ( If I can find a photographer) so gaps well used.

So yesterday, oh actually Tuesday ( silly me) it was just a simple temperature not fully warm or cold, so this was perfect for that weather. However, later on it did start to become very hot, only reason is because I was wearing a leather skirt and boots, not a good call!?

I hope everyone's having a fabulous week, I will keep posted and hopefully have a look book coming soon, it was supposed to be a ' back to school' one but it may be a bit late, so let's make it ' Autumn Lookbook' ? So keep an eye out on my YouTube, if you're not subscribed, it would mean the world if you do so, we could all be fashion buddies? not a good name? .. hmm.. we will work on that.

Back To School/College

Back To School/College

The summer holidays may be over but the sun is back to bring us joy, unfortunately college starts for me tomorrow, which means back to struggling to do everything. I keep having the odd panic attacks about going back to college, I guess it's the overload in work we get, because we really do, it manages to stress me out so much. But I can't sit around having lazy days every day, can I ? I wish.





Today, I went back to college to get my timetable which was very odd as I haven't been there in so long. My timetable may actually be the most terrible timetable I could of imagined it to be. I have plenty of pointless gaps, including a 5hrs and 50 minute one, which is annoying when you live 2 hrs away from college sigh. Starting at 8:30 tomorrow and ending at 5:10, I think Tuesdays may be my moody day!?



 Unfortunately, all my pictures were over exposed, but only really effected my dress, so I beginning to think this blog post may be pointless when you can't see anything, but I'm hoping you get the idea. I'm sorry if this blog post sounds like I'm ranting a bit, it feels like it. Oops!



This dress is literally my favourite, just because I won it with Urban Outfitters in an instagram competition that includes the boots and bag, unfortunately I didn't bring the sunglasses sigh! I think it was literally the best thing in the world winning that competition, but I guess I deserved it, because the amount of clothes I buy from them ey! Haha! But I must say how much I recommend the Vagabond boots, they are so comfortable and yet so stylish too! They're going to have to be my autumn staple item.

Embarrassing much! I thought I uploaded this post already, but it turns out I hadn't. So back when we had sun I decided to film and photograph an outfit of the day, however the sun has decided to come back today, so it seems this post may be good timing. After this week I may start to upload back to school outfits and make a lookbook for YouTube of it, so keep your eyes peeled!

During this day me and Beth took a nice stroll through Brighton, and had a good old catch up, as she was on holiday and I hadn't seen her properly since May and she's going to Uni in London soon *sad face* , so we needed to do our good old blogging together. Hopefully we will have one last opportunity before she goes, I'm hoping one day I will be able to try the restaurant Bills and go together, we will see about that.

As you may tell by now I am a lover of Urban Outfitters and I can't seem to get enough of their clothes, hence the reason most of my blog posts i'm wearing their clothes, sorry about that. But for this day I decided to wear my prized possession when it comes to kimonos,  I just absolutely love the detail of it and I feel it makes any outfit look unique and interesting, it can change something from being so simple to being amazing. As we're on the subject of prized possessions who could forget the shoes, here i'm wearing the most beautiful shoes i've ever owned, yes you guessed, my Jeffrey Campbell's, they are literally perfect, they are black suede and have an interesting look to them. I can't help but think how perfect they look with fishnets. I just praise Urban Outfitters for having them in the sale, I will never regret buying them.


Thanks for reading, speak to you guys soon xo
