GRWM // Summer Picnic Edition!


Hey lovelies! Picnics are one of my favourite Summery things and since the weather has been so lovely lately (*hope I'm not jinxing it!*) I decided to have one the other day with a couple of friends. I only ever seem to see these on Youtube so I thought it would be fun to do a 'Get Ready with Me Post' for that day, taking you through my makeup // outfit // and of course the last minute rush that always happens when I get ready! It's also such a lovely way to look back on that day, and it's making me look forward to Summer even more - think beaches, picnics, barbeques and all that fun stuff! Anyway, hope you enjoy this GRWM post and let me know in the comments what you're most excited for this Summer.



- 9AM The first thing I did when I woke up, was plod off to the bathroom (phone in hand!)  to brush my teeth and cleanse my face while scrolling through my instagram feed in the other hand. This is always my time to kinda catch up and check my notifications in the morning.

-9:15AM Breakfast time aka the best time of day! Today I was in a bit of a rush so no, I didn't have time to whip up an elaborate 'nice-cream bowl' like my last post, but a bowl of porridge did me just fine, alongside a good old cup of tea. I've been loving frozen fruit on my porridge lately so I added that to the top, and since I seem to have so much soya milk left over from my Vegan Week I ended up using that in my tea too.


- 9:45AM Tie hair up in unnattractive bun and get to work on makeup. like I said before I'm definitely not the best at makeup, but heyyyy as I was meeting up with friends I thought I'd make the effort that day and so this is what I ended up with. After a couple of rounds of rubbing off-then re-appling the eyeliner (you know the struggles c'mon!) I opted for some black winged liner, with some simple eyeshadow and of course a lil' bit of inner corner highlight using the gorgeous highlighters from my Sleek Palette. As for face makeup, I didn't go crazy because I knew it was going to be such a hot day and I could imagine all of the makeup just melting off in the sun haha, but just a little bit of concealer and  I was good to go.



- 10:15AM  Usually my hair is fine to wear down, no heat needed, but I must have slept on it awkwardly the night before so it was all over the place when I woke up. To solve it I ended up straightening it slightly with a pair of GHDs (my absolute fave!) just to tame it down a bit. 



-10:30AM Then it was time to choose my outfit, which let's be real took me a good 15mins haha! I've been loving getting outfit inspo from places like Esprit or Pinterest recently, Esprit in particular has the most gorgeous Summer range (I literally can't stop scrolling through their lookbooks!) and some amazing deals on the website at the moment.   

For today's outfit, I ended up wearing this Lace-Up Band Top from Primark (£6.99) paired with my ripped Mom Jeans from New Look (£29.99) my Coin Necklace which you might remember from my March Love List and a navy Scrunchie. 


-11AM At this point I realised I was in a rush and had to run downstairs to my kitchen and pack the actual picnic whoops! I tossed in the pretzels, sandwiches, lemonade, cakes and all those cute bite-size foods into the basket, grabbed the picnic rug and I was good to go. We sat on the hill and chatted for hours while munching on all the food in the sunshine and it was such a lovely day - even hotter than expected! As I sit doing homework at my laptop right now, I'm missing it already.

QOTD: WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE SUMMER TRADITION?
I think you can guess what mine is already!
