My New Years Eve Outfit & Our 2017 Resolutions

Top - River Island
Velvet Jacket - Primark 
Sequin Skirt - Boohoo
Knee High Socks - Primark
Shoes - River Island

Happy New Years Eve everyone! We are waving goodbye to 2016 and saying hello to 2017! I think 2016 has been my best year in a very long time to be honest so I'm hoping 2017 will be another good year. There's no better way to bring in the New Year than wearing sequins! I bought this gorgeous mermaid inspired top from River Island in the sale! I love the colours of the sequins, they are just so so so beautiful! There is no such thing as too many sequins for us so I'm also wearing my black sequin skirt from Boohoo! I'm wearing my gorgeous babydoll gothic boots from River Island too. I love this outfit, I wish I could wear it 24/7! 

Our 2017 Resolutions
  • Keep positive - I think I have really improved at keeping positive and it makes all the difference! I would love to feel more positive about myself and to love myself more. 
  • Art, art and more art! - Art is one of my favourite hobbies. There is just nothing better than looking at a piece of work that is your creation. Selling my art is something I would love to do in the future as it's something I love and making a little bit of money would just be a big bonus. 
  • Keep blogging - I think this is the fourth blog I've made now and I'd love to stick to blogging because I love being part of this little blogging bubble. It's also a good excuse to buy more makeup and clothes I think! 
  • Music - Me and Leah love love love music, it's our life! I would love to be in a band, make more music and have more faith in myself! We also want to put videos on our youtube of us playing guitar and drums (check out our Youtube here!)
What are your resolutions for 2017? Happy New Year everyone!

CONCEALER - Collection lasting perfection Concealer
HIGHLIGHTER - MUA Undress Your Skin
BLUSH -  Benefit Rockateur
EYESHADOWS - Maybelline The Nudes 
EYELINERS - Sleek Dip It & Bourjois Queen Attitude Kohl 
LASHES - Maybelline Lash Sensational
EYEBROWS -  Maybelline Brow Fixer
LIPSTICK - Unicorn Blood Jefree Star
FIXING SPRAY - NXY Matte Finishing Spray

Hey everyone, welcome back to another post! Today we have a face of the day. With a new year fast approaching, I wanted to spice up my usual makeup look. Lately I've been obsessed with dark eyes and cat flicks and I've been neglecting my beloved collection of red, dark and gothic lipsticks. I couldn't go without red lipsticks once upon a time (we wanted to be Marilyn Monroe) but things have changed and I'm now a lover of the beauty of a nude lipstick - think 60's makeup!

But I love makeup, the best thing about it is that you can experiment each and everyday with bold and fun looks. So, I decided to pull out all my red lipsticks again and I found Unicorn Blood by Jefree Star! Oh my God, this is the most perfect lipstick ever, not to mention the colour is to die for. Despite my bold lips I couldn't abandon my dark eyes or kitty flicks! Who says you can't do both? Red lips and dark lips for the win.
A recent find has been the absolutely amazing and versatile Maybelline The Nudes palette! for just £10, you get 12 shades that are mixtures of matte and shimmer that create the most perfect smokey eye! I also use this on my eyebrows to fill them in.
I kept my base the same as usual, the Stay Matte foundation and the Collection concealer have been holy grails for years now because they're perfect for pale skin. I'm all about glowing highlighter and my mum bought me a bloggers favourite, MUA undress your skin. Budget friendly and absolutely gorgeous, I definitely recommend it! Brows, Blush and a quick spray of NXY finishing spray (which is UH-AMAZING) and I'm all done!

What is your favourite red lipstick?

Christmas 2016 Presents | The Body Shop, Pandora & Tigi Bedhead

I hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas! Christmas still isn't over yet though. I'm still relaxing, being cozy and watching films all day! I wanted to blog about a few of my favourite presents that I got this year, mainly beauty products because who doesn't love a good pamper day? My mum and dad bought us a box full of amazing The Body Shop products! I started using The Body Shop products recently and I absolutely love their products. I prefer The Body Shop products over Lush products because they don't upset my skin, are less expensive and just overall better than Lush in my opinion! I've got to say my favourite is the Hemp range! My skin has never ever ever felt this SOFT! My skin just feels like silk and I'm not even kidding! I've never tried Hemp before because I usually love fruity or sweet smelling stuff but Hemp smells really vintage which is weird as we all know Hemp and cannabis come from the same plant! I love the fact that The Body Shop use natural pure ingredients, the hippy in me loves being au naturale. The Argan Oil range is just perfect too. The scrub and body lotion are a treat to use! The Aloe skincare has made me feel 1000% better about my skin. My skin has broke into spots recently which makes me feel really low about myself. The Aloe really calms down my skin and makes me feel so much more confident about my skin. The overnight cream is just amazing! I wake up and my skin looks transformed! The Aloe range is perfect for sensitive skin. I am just obsessed with The Body Shop now! They make the most perfect products for a pamper day!
I cannot wait to use my new shampoo, conditioner and deep conditioning mask from Tigi Bedhead. Tigi is an amazing brand that I've been using on my locks for years now. The set I got is especially for coloured hair which is infused with sweet almond oil, coconut oil and keratin. Plus, it smells exactly like Toffee... mmm, yum!
Next up is my gorgeous Pandora ring from my Nan (thanks Nan!) I love this ring. It's so beautiful and looks like two rings in one! This is a tiara shaped inspired ring which is good for me as I like to think I'm a princess haha. I just think you can't go wrong with Pandora! The jewellery is just beautiful.

What did you guys get for Christmas this year?

Merry Christmas and our blogging return!

Hey everyone, Merry Christmas! It seems so unreal that another year has nearly passed but right now lets just enjoy Christmas before talking about New Year! I hope you're all having a wonderful Christmas. Leah and me have decided to make a return to the blogging world! Our most successful blog was called Beyond the Velvet but we gave up on that blog last year. I'm not too sure why we gave up blogging but I've really missed our little space on the internet these past few months! Our last post was on April this year when our blog was called Leah Rachel Goth. You might've noticed that our new blog name is Cyber Mermaids! A new start calls for a new blog name right?! Cyber Mermaid seems like a perfect name for our little blog as me and Leah have a big love for alternative fashion and makeup that makes a statement! We also love mystical things like Unicorns and Mermaids! Who doesn't love Unicorns though? Make sure to follow this blog on Bloglovin'! I hope you're all having a very very Merry Christmas! See you all on the next post!
