Reflecting on October

Where has October gone..what a month it has been. I honestly did not expect a month to be like this.
How can things just happen for a reason? Anyway I started this month with the deversating news that  my beloved Grandma had passed away and it was heartbreaking for the family and her close friends. How was it possible for that Grandma had gone and we were never going to see her, hear her voice and just not having her in our lives anymore. All I kept thinking was she was not suffering anymore and she was in heaven with Grandad. Gosh life is not the same without them, some days I wake up and wish I could text Grandma or give her a ring. I hate you cancer. Why after all these years would you come back.. she would of still been here and she wasn't even ready to go yet!! Life is so cruel thats all I am going to say on the matter.

So because of my Grandma the posts have lacked this month I just have not felt like posting anything and then I finally got round to doing my L'oreal True Match review which I was so surprised how people loved it. You guys are seriously the best and I would 100% recommend it if you are looking for a drugstore foundation. The other week I went to Leeds and bought the most loveliest jumper and shirt (pictured above) from Zara which I loved. The jumper is perfect for this weather its so fluffy and warm... and has to be my favourite. One shop I also loved was And Other Stories now I lovve this store so much but some pieces can be very expensive and I was lucky even though to get this junper half the price which I was very happy about.

I hope you have had a good month and lets get excited because Christmas is on its way!

Keep smiling

The Future Is Female

I once had an idea about having a blog but never having the confidence to actually start one, but now I am doing it and have been for a while. After blogging for a little while now you start to question your journey and how you made it real. My blog is my hobby as quite a lot of you will most likely know already but just like any blogger I like to make changes to it now again and keep it looking fresh. For the past couple of months my mind has honestly not been in the blogger mood as usually how I would want it to be but I have still been producing some posts and have been pleased with how they have turned out. Instagram for me has been such a great app that I have been come obsessed about and always like to try and post twice a day. Somethings I can get carried away with myself and like to post a few more, it just depends on what images I have backed up on my phone and how I look to see what images I can post so the content never gets boring and its always different. I believe it is so important to keep changing your photos around and have different ones going. 

My feed from the other week shows a lot of style inspiration but also has that retro feel to it. I had to feature my And Other Stories fragrance which actually after starting to use it I find it is very sweet and I am not keen on sweet sweet fragnances. New perfume's are hard to come back.. I suppose you could say thats why I ALWAYS wear Chanel. Chanel why are you so expensive but smell so beautifully.. its funny because just before my Grandma became really poorly I went to see her and I gave her a hug and kiss and do you what said 'You smell devine' I will forever remember those words. Thats when you know you have the fragrance for you when your Grandma says that to you. I was looking back through some old blog posts and remembering how I started my blog and much it has developed over 2 and half years. I occassionally look at other people's and say 'oh I wish mine looked like that' but everyone is different and I am happy with Lottie's Lott.

If you have a blog or just started one then I would defintely say keep doing it and keep working on it. You get better and better over time and don't compare your blog to others.

L'Oreal True Match Foundation Review

Today I wanted to share with you my first proper beauty blog post, it was something that I been thinking about doing for a while and then all of a sudden it happened.. to be honest I do not know what came over me. I just got into the blogger mood and decided taking pictures of a flatlay - the images above I am very pleased off as they are my first ever flatlay (they actually came out better than I though.) About a couple of months ago back in Summer I decided I wanted to try out using a drugstore foundation and wanted something very similar to Mac Cosemetics which was what I had been using before. I don't like thick foundations at all they don't do anything for my skin so what I loved about Mac Cosemtics was how did a mineralised foundation was perfect for my skin. It was light and creamy on face and lasted all day but it was expensive. So after looking on the internet to see what best drugstore foundations they were I thought lets try Loreal True Match, I had heard some great things about it. So I went into Boots and had a look at Loreal True Match foundation and came home with the lightest shade and I was so happy with it as it was the perfect shade for my skin tone. I ended up going for the 1.R/1.C  in Rose Ivory. 

The thing I love about True Match is it comes in so many different shades so you are bound to find one that matches your skin tone. I was very lucky in the fact that it did not take me long enough to find one and even though the testers were awful and not appealing I ended up going away with a lovely new foundation. I do find once you have used it a little while the pump and lid get lots of foundation on them which becomes messy and I spend ages trying to clean it and make it look pretty again. But for the price of £9.99 which is great if you don't want to spend so much on foundation but still want it to look just as good as a highend foundation then this is defintely the one for you. The product itsself says how super blendable the foundation is and how it perfectly matches your skin colour and I have to agree with it as it is. It is so easy to blend and I use a foundation brush to apply and just buff it all around my face. The consistancy is so creamy but always leaves my skin feeling light, its never felt thick and lasts all day. I would defintely repurchase it again.
