Oh hello obligatory snow outfit post ;) I know, I know, it’s like no one has ever seen snow before but unfortunately it’s pretty hard to blog without it when you want to blog & you take your ootd photos outside ahaha.

I was sent these pretty bomb diggy Motel jeans by the lovely people at MeeMee.co.uk the other week & have literally fallen in love with them! I’m a sucker for unusual prints, especially palm & tie dye so these are right up my street. Mee Mee stock loads of different brands including MinkPink, Cheap Moday & Motel to name a few. Guys this is literally my new favourite ever online shop (‘: they are perfect :)

Now for the boots…THE BOOTS! Also a new love of mine. If you have been reading my blog for a while, you might remember the time when I desperately tried to get my hands on a pair of Topshop Aiden boots & literally had ZERO luck, so a year & a half later, I had pretty much given up but still searched all over just in case, as you do, anywhoo, I found these beauts on ebay & I haven’t had them off my feet since they arrived (‘: *so happy* They are lined with a furry material so they keep my feet extra snug, eeee I have never been so happy with a pair of shoes in my life lol ps they also do them in brown if black aint yo thang ;)

Also, because LOADS of you have been asking, here’s the link for the kaleidoscope iphone case you have seen all over my instagram over the past few weeks ;)

Studded Bum Bag: ASOS

So as you all probably know by now, I am a HUGE lover of dinosaurs or anything dinosaur related, so I’m sure you can imagine how happy I was when Liams Mum presented me with this amazing Triceratops ring for Christmas! I know a lot of you have asked already as you have seen it on my instagram but the ring is from ebay (this seller to be precise) As you can see from the GIF, the head moves which makes me love it even more! I mean how many people do you know with moving dinosaur rings?! Eigh? EIGH? ;)
Oh & I can’t get enough of my ASOS studded bumbag, it literally has been attached to my hip since I got it. Totally bringing back the 90’s vibes with this baby! ;)
What do you think of bumbags guys? Would you wear one or do you think they should have been left way behind in the 80’s/90’s?

So as you can see I took inspiration from Clueless when I put this outfit together as an ode to Wildfoxes newest collection & quite frankly, I love it & want to dress like this every day now! Just call me Cher ;)

I was kindly sent the tartan blazer after attending the Daisy Street event just before Christmas & I am so happy with it! I thought it might clash with my hair, being red & all but I don’t think it looks too bad? It’s a really nice wool material & fits perfectly, oversized but no too oversized if you know what I mean ahahaha & it’s the perfect length too! Thank you very much Daisy Street!

What do you think of outfits like this? Too garish, or perfectly Clueless? ;)

Sorry I’ve been a little MIA the past few weeks, a lot of things have been happening in my life away from the internet & my blog has taken a bit of a back seat. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas & New Year! Aside from the naff side of things that have been going on IRL lots of lovely things have been happening too, having fun with the boy, friends & family, dogs & chickens included ahahaha, I finally met the lovely Kim (Sweet Monday) in real life! Yay, I was caught a little off guard so probably came across as a right weirdo (sorry Kim (‘:) & some exciting shoots with the lovelies at missguided are happening in the the next couple of weeks so I have plenty of stuff to keep me busy :)

This is my new favourite outfit…ever. It’s so comfy yet still looks like I’ve made a little bit of an effort ahahaha. I am going to apologise now because you are all most probably going to get so, so sick of me wearing this hat, I bought it from H&M as a little Christmas present to myself & I haven’t had it off my head since, best £7.99 I ever spent! The jumper is from Primark, I snapped it up in the sales for a fiver, It’s a size 20 so it’s amazingly oversized, just how I like my jumpers, nice & cozy :)

Just a little reminder that you can follow me on instagram (@effiesmakeupbox) if you are at all interested in seeing what I get up to in real life/just want to be nosy ;) also if you have instagram, leave me your username, am I looking for new accounts to follow to fill up my instadash :)
