Get To Know Me (Fashion, Makeup And Personal)

Sunday, 30 August 2015

I've done a lot of posts but I've never really said much about me without talking about fashion, lifestyle, beauty etc. So I thought I'd do a little tag just to get a bit more personal. 

My name?
My name is Sophie Louise, I realized I should answer this because my name on most things is ShyLifeLiving and I havent actually said my real name. Fun fact my blog initials are SLL and thats the same as my full name SLL., lets pretend I did that on purpose.
 Thats me with a cookie.

I'm 17 and turn 18 on the 28th of October, it's kind of scary!

Where are you from?
I'm from the North East of England about an hour away from Newcastle. It's a pretty seaside town with some rundown areas but I quite like it. My favourite place is the beach and fields, we are right in the middle of both so it's perfect!!

I have a lovely group of friends but the 2 main people, who know about my blog, are Lukke and Grace. I thought I should introduce them because they will probably pop up now and again. Grace is my best friend, I've known her since we were in year 7 and even if we dont talk for a while, I always know shes there, cringe! Seriously though, shes fab and has great style that I love to feature on my blog. (Grace left)
Lukke is my boyfriend, we've been together for 3 years and he's great because he helps me with all my photography and encouraged me to start the blog.

I love animals and I want so many more!! As you all, probably know, I want alpacas but right now I have my dog Spot and my hamster Bert. I've had spot since I was about 5/6 and Bert is now 2 years old and I got him for an anniversary present, from Lukke. I love them both so much!

What Do You Do?
At the moment I'm in my final year of college and I study sociology, politics and photography. I'd love to go to uni but I need an AAB, which is daunting because I dont want to slightly miss out, like I did in first year! In uni, I hope to carry on a joint honors or major/minor in sociology and politics. I'm still unsure though, I might just stick with one.

Holy Grail Makeup Items?
I swear my E45 cream, it sorts my skin out, stops dry patches and doesn't clog pores! It's a great, cheap, all rounder. I also love my Real Techniques sponge because it buffs my foundation in effortlessly and makes me look so dewy!
My Mac Studio Fix concealer is another product that I'd always repurchase because it's so high coverage. It covers any redness perfectly and doesn't dry my skin out. Also it's great because it lasts so long, it's in a small container but lasts months because you don't need a lot.
Finally, I'd have to say Simple skincare. I completely trust them, more than any other high end brands that I've tried. Everything is so gentle and clears my skin perfectly.

What Is Your Style?
I don't think I've completely figured out my style yet but at the moment I go for outfits that are comfortable but look put together. I always like to look as if I've put more effort than I actually have into an outfit.

Go To Outfits?
Thats hard. I'd say my go to outfit is my highwaisted jeans and my cropped, leave heart jumper, for an everyday look. It's so easy but the silhouette of the jeans makes you look more sleek and the cropped style just works well and looks thought out.

For a smart/casual look I'll always wear highwaisted jeans, a vest and a striped shirt. It just works and looks so put together. The shirt adds that smart element but the jeans and vest bring it back to casual and laid back.

Then for a nighttime/party look I'll always go for a little back dress or a bardot top. They are so simple but instantly look chic because they are always in style. They make me feel so feminine and they can be dressed up or down.

I hope this clears up a few things and I hope you enjoyed this post xo
