Fishnet Queen

Fishnet Jumper - Boohoo | Fishnet Leggings - Boohoo | Boots - ASOS

Have you ever noticed that wearing mesh clothing or fishnet tights makes you feel incredible and like a bad ass bitch? They're just so sexy and they look so cool. I absolutely love wearing fishnet tights but sometimes, tights aren't enough. I needed more fishnet goodness in my life. Who do I turn to in my hour of need? Boohoo of course. Boohoo came to my rescue as always because lets face it, Boohoo is the best website going. 

This whole outfit cost me just £11! I don't think I've entered something as fast into my shopping bag as I did with these leggings and jumper.  

This is my favorite outfit in the whole entire world. Yes, I say that quite a lot about my outfits but no, this time I mean it. I feel like this jumper and these unique leggings were made for me! Not only do I feel confident wearing this, I also feel so comfortable too. I thought the fishnet material would feel tight or scratchy but it's quite loose so it's really nice to wear. I like the thought of just lazing around all day while looking goth as fuck while I do it ;)

Creep/Artist

Creep Jumper - H&M | Artist Jacket - Forever 21 | Lace Skirt - Forever 21  | Tights - Primark | Creepers - River Island

It's Tuesday, so happy Tuesday everyone! I've been feeling a little low lately - it's just one of those times in my life where I feel a bit lost and I haven't got motivation to do much. It's hard to get out of bed sometimes but I know this feeling isn't permanent. I've just got to take care of myself and give myself lots of TLC! 

I don't know about you guys but my idea of TLC is wearing some bad ass outfits that make me feel amazing. I've found some absolutely amazing clothes recently, one of those being this awesome slogan ''creep'' jumper. The slogan looks so good running down the sleeves - I really want more clothes like this! My mum actually got me this top from H&M (Thanks mum, you're a diamond). I find this top great in this chilly but bright weather.

And look at my fucking incredible denim jacket from Forever 21! The minute I saw this sleeveless jacket in the shop window, I had to get it. Being a girl with creative interests, a massive love of drawing and playing musical instruments, how could I possibly not get this jacket with ''artist'' written all over the back!? It was £35 but I know for sure that I'll have this piece for years to come and get a lot of wear out of it. 

Have you found any great denim clothes in the shops recently? Let us know!

A Touch Of Pink

    Dip Dyed Crop top - Boohoo | Shorts - Primark  | Tights - Primark 


Hello everyone! Sorry for not being as active on the blogging scene lately, life gets in the way sadly. But I'm really pleased that we managed to get some outfit photos today in the lovely sunshine.

 I've been looking for some new Summer clothes recently because we're going on holiday to Greece at the end of April - SO EXCITED. We haven't been on holiday for years and we've only been abroad twice. I think I was too excited daydreaming about my holiday in Greece when I put this outfit on this morning and forgot I was in Liverpool, freezing my ass off despite the bright sunshine.
 I don't have many colourful clothes in the slightest but hey, it's getting warmer (supposedly) and I thought I'd embrace some more colour in my life! Introducing this gorgeous pink and white crop top from Boohoo! This was only £4 so it was such a bargain! The material is lovely, it's a great fit and I love the hint of pink as it's not too over whelming for a girl like me that doesn't wear much pink at all. I can see myself chilling in this cute top all Summer - hopefully minus the big black woolly jumper like I'm wearing over it now!

These shorts. These adorable lace trimmed shorts were just £12 from Primark and I absolutely love them. I think sometimes plain denim shorts can be a little boring but the lace on these beauties adds a little more detail and sexiness to any outfit which I love of course! I think this outfit shows that you don't have to spend loads of money on Summer clothes. You can't buy style - it's how you pair your clothes together that matters! 

Have you found any Summer bargains?

Mini Collection Haul


Hi everyone, we have a lovely Spring inspired beauty haul for you all today. It's only a small haul but it was a very successful one! Collection has always been one of my high street brands. I find that Collection tends to go unnoticed because it's so cheap and with other brands like Maybelline and L'Oreal to compete with it can be hard for a brand to compare. However, I've picked up these bargain buys from Collection and I have to say that they're some of the best products I've bought for a while! 

Collection Primed and Ready Correct and Conceal Palette - This small and compact palette caught my eye because how many new colour correcting palettes have been released lately?! there is so much choice! I've never really colour corrected before and I think it can be a bit overwhelming to pick up a palette with 6 shades of greens, lilacs and oranges! But I was curious and this palette only has two colour correcting shades, one setting powder and a normal skin coloured concealer. Green neutralizes redness and blemishes while the lilac corrects yellow tones. This was so cheap at only £3.99! But it really works! and having used Collection's infamous concealer - I had high hopes for the colour correcting shades and it's surpassed all my expectations. It's incredible! I urge anyone who is new to colour correcting to get this palette - it's already a staple of mine! It brightens my whole face up and stays put all day.

Collection Primed and Ready Mattifying Pore Minimiser Face Primer - This has witch hazel in it and that alone sold this primer to me. Witch Hazel helps prevent blemishes and is a skin savior in my eyes. What's not to like about that? This primer is amazing and keeps my make up on all day long. It makes my skin so smooth while blurring out imperfections. It doesn't feel greasy, makes my skin matte all day long and does exactly what it says on the bottle. A definite must-have!

Collection Primed and Ready Invisible Setting Powder - A good face powder is a stable in my makeup routine. They're just ready handy to have through out the day and during the warmer months powders keep shiny skin at bay. I got this one because it has Witch Hazel in just like the primer and it's also translucent which I really like. I only need to put this powder on after doing my base makeup and I find that I don't need to touch up through out the day - even with my oily skin! At only £3.99, I'll be getting this again.

Collection Colour Lash Clear Mascara - I don't use this as a mascara because I absolutely love to put this on my eyebrows to keep them in place. I hate it when my brows look messy! But this product has seen an end to my untamed eyebrows. I think that a clear mascara is better than an actual eyebrow gel. Have you guys noticed eyebrow gels come in the smallest tubes ever? I ain't got time for that. At just £1.99 - this is an absolute bargain! This is my new eyebrow go - to so go and check it out!

Collection 7 Day Wear Nail Polish in Touch of Pink - Guys. It's Spring. I needed a lovely light pink nail polish and I found it in this one. It's the most gorgeous baby pink colour. I did need a few coats of this polish for an opaque finish but it hasn't chipped at all - even with my guitar playing! I recommend this shade to everyone and Collection nail polishes in general are incredible!

As you can tell from reading this post that me and Rachel are massive fans of Collection makeup. Are you a fan of their products too? Let us know!

State Of Mind

    Black Cotton Shirt - H&M | T-shirt - Forever 21 | Fishnet Tights - Primark 

First of all I'd like to say that IT FINALLY FEELS LIKE SPRING! I am so excited about it being warmer. Spring is such a beautiful season. We have more sunshine, warmer weather, everything is alive again, the flowers & new life and of course Easter! But want to know the real reason why I'm so excited for Spring? New clothes. Yes, that's right. A new season brings an abundance of pastel shades, crop tops, short skirts and denim jackets. I'm in my element! It's a relief to get out of the hats and bulky coats. 

And just look at this complete babe of a top I'm wearing. It's a top I've always dreamed of wearing because it's the ultimate hippie/boho piece of clothing. Oh, it's so 90's too!  It's such a gorgeous tie dye - pastel pink and blue are fast becoming new favorite shades of mine. Not to mention the really awesome slogan too. It's a weird little smiley face that reminds me of Nirvana and the words 'State of Mind'. I absolutely love it and the words mean a lot to me too. 
The fabric of this top is sooo soft. I find that all the tops from Forever 21 are super soft cotton and it just feels incredible. I can see myself wearing this top non stop through out the Summer. It's still a bit chilly so I've got my lovely black long sleeved top from H&M on underneath for extra warmth. I've got my amazing denim shorts on from Primark and my beloved fishnets on for added sassiness! 

Do you like the tie dye trends?

Black Velvet & Motorhead

Black Velvet Dress - Vintage | Fishnet Tights - Primark | Boots - ASOS 

This little dress has been in my wardrobe for four years now! I love this dress so much, I have it in three different colours! One thing I always think about when buying new clothes is, "will i still be wearing this in a few years time?" I think it's important buying clothes that last as whats the point in buying a dress and wearing it a few times? Saying that though, I am guilty of buying soooo many clothes and forgetting what I have in my wardrobe hehe.

What do you think of the fluffy cuffs? They're so cute aren't they! My mum actually sewed the fluff on to give it an extra touch and it's worked so well. DIYing clothes is so fun and makes it personal and special to you! Summer is coming up and I can't wait to start making more DIY clothes!
I think this is one of my favourite looks of this month. I love my fishnets and I am so so so glad that Primark have improved the quality of these babies!

By the way everyone, this lipstick is called 'Motorhead' by Kat Von D. I absolutely love this shade. I got it last year as a present and I can't believe it's lasted me until now. The smell of this lipstick is incredible. The staying power is amazingggg but my only problem is that it crumbled a little and feels a little cakey. Still, I love Kat Von D lipsticks! I am yet to try something else from her beauty range! I might have to try the eyeliner as it feels wrong not to! What do you think of her beauty products?

Do you like the goth vibes from this pretty outfit?

Feeling Low & Going Through A Hard Time...

All images included in this post our not ours and are found on Pintrest via Google.
Hey everyone, this is a very different post to what you usually find on our blog Cyber Mermaids but I wanted to be honest with all of our lovely readers and tell them whats going on in my life. Plus I always think a good rant and talk is good for the soul, heart and mind.

So as you can probably tell from the title of this post, I'm going through a really shitty time right now. Things have been shit for the past few months, especially since January of this year. Me and my boyfriend haven't been getting along for a long time which is so sad to write as at the beginning of our relationship, we used to be best friends... soul mates in fact and everything was so so so good. He was my first ever boyfriend which is so unusual for a 19 year old but I was waiting for the right one :) and I thought I'd finally found him :) so the first few months of our time together was so sweet and lovely. We made each other so happy and we both helped with each others confidence. I thought we would spend our lives together because that's how right we were for one another. It's crazy how one person can make you feel so happy and loved. I treated him as my number one and vise versa.

Cracks started showing when I had a feeling his mum didn't like me, she even called me 'that Rachel' like I was a dog or a piece of dirt, the worst thing is my boyfriend didn't even think that was horrible which is fucking weird I think. I just got on with things and did my best to try and get along with her. We'd been going out for a few months now and I'd still hadn't met his friends. I was worried as I thought I meant we weren't in a 'serious' relationship. I brought it up and we both fought but decided I'd meet his friends soon. Another one of my worries was that whenever we went to his house, we would never ever go out. Most couples go on dates, we didn't.

Weeks go by and I still haven't met his friends or been on a proper date or even go out shopping in his home town. I felt like he was ashamed of me, I felt like his secret girlfriend. These feelings were made 100% worse because we had a long distance relationship. Ever week he would come visit me after a three hour train journey and spend a few nights at mine and then I go back to his with him.
I got pissed of at staying in the house 24/7 when we were at his, so I eventually stopped going. That was another massive crack in our relationship.

Weeks and weeks went by and I could literally feel the distance growing between us. Sure, he would come and visit me but things just felt different. He put his friends before me and wouldn't text me for hours and it was pretty clear that I wasn't his first priority. We started arguing more and wouldn't cuddle as much :( Our 'first' breakup was in January of this year but my heart was breaking so much. After a two weeks of barely talking and a lot of tears we decided to get back together. I was so happy but also a little nervous. I thought we could work through our issues and be happy again. We've had a few happy times this year but the arguments got more frequent and I just felt like I couldn't bring up my worries and insecurities. I just felt like our relationship was in pieces. We were arguing every week plus we barely saw each other anymore, he would visit me every few weeks and I didn't want to go to his house anymore as I hated being stuck in and feeling like his secret.

Now, I sit here feeling really sad and alone. I don't know how to feel, think or what to do. I think we're finally over. We had a yet another argument the other day and I'm literally feel numb. We haven't talked for a few days now and I feel so broken :( In my head I know our relationship is over but my heart is crying and is so confused. I know we're not meant to be a couple anymore but I still love him, I wish we could still be together and make things work but I know it's just wishful thinking. I loved him so much and i still do. I can't just switch off my deep feelings for him, I thought we would be together forever but obviously not. Right now, I feel like a shell of myself. I haven't even cried as I literally can't, I am   n u m b. The thoughts of him moving on and him not being in my life anymore rips me apart... I can't even think of it.

Sure we had bad times but we had some really great times too and that's what I will remember and be thankful for. I will never regret this chapter of my life. It was a lesson and I've learnt a lot. I feel so sad, all I can think about is our good happy times and I wish it could've stayed like that. Why couldn't our relationship work? It makes me so sad wondering why everything went so wrong.

Well, I guess I should finish this post now. I feel so alone but I know I'm not. If any of you guys are going through this then I hope I've helped. Thanks for reading and please leave a comment as they really do make me smile.

I hope you're all having a lovely weekend,
Love Rachel x x x

Feminist Mermaid

Feminist tee - H&M | Black Top - Forever 21 | Shorts - New Look | Tights - Primark | Creepers - New Look | Backpack - Boohoo

Hello everyone, sorry for the lack of blog posts last week. I was on a hair and makeup course in college! It was only for a week but I am so so so proud for myself. Because of a bad school experience, I struggle with really bad anxiety and social anxiety especially. Because of these problems, I never ever ever thought I would go to college but I did! I can't even believe that I'm writing this because I never thought this anxiety would get easier. For the last few years I've been taking little baby steps like going to the shops by myself, paying at the till which was so hard for me at the beginning and three years down the line I do a college course! I am just so proud of myself. Believe in yourself girls and you can do anything! Because of my week in college last week, I discovered how much I love doing hair. I love beauty but hair is my passion! So guess what everyone? I'm actually going to college to study hair in September! I can't wait! It will be challenging some days with my anxiety as I think it truly never goes 100% (I Had anxiety before my problems) but it does get easier and besides, I get to learn all about one of my favourite passions in life... Hair! 

So when I got home from college last week, Rachel wanted to snap some pictures of this outfit that I'm wearing. This t-shirt is my go-to shirt as a gorgeous fit, blush pink and GIRL POWER! Yeah, I would describe myself as a feminist. I believe it equality and believe we should all be treated equally so when I saw this 'feminist' shirt in H&M, it was straight in my hands. I love the lettering. I love how the i's in feminist are little roses, it's a lovely delicate look. The fit of this tee is especially amazing and I the quality is so so so good, Best thing is that this top was only £8! That's cheaper than some of the tees in Primark nowadays! This is a great tee that I wear with pride :) What do you think of my new sparkly backpack from Boohoo? I absolutely adore it. I love all the different colour sparkles, the purple and blue go so beautiful together! It's the perfect backpack for all the mermaids out there.

Are you a Feminist too?

Alternative Meets Boho Vibes

Right after taking these blog pictures me and Leah ate some delicious home made cookies made by me during the day! Best of all is that these cookies are 'healthy' cookies! I might start blogging my favourite recipes soon on the blog as I love baking and most of all eating my bakes I make during the day! Today's recipe is healthy blueberry pancakes, yum!

On to the post now and I decided to pair my outfit with this cute boho style hairband I found in the sale of Urban Outfitters a few years ago! I love this headband as it's such good quality velvet and the style is so fashionable and can be worn everyday with every outfit. I've only recently started wearing my headbands again and I don't know why I ever stopped. They are perfect for bad hair days or when your hair feels greasy. I mainly wear my hairbands when I do my yoga and pilates in the evening but I love it so much that I'm trying to incorporate hair bands into my daily style and everyday outfits! I'm wearing my headband in a different way than I usually do, I mainly wear them on my head and not slightly on my forehead but I'm loving this new look! I think wearing it this way makes it look more boho and hippie which I love!

                           What do you guys think of this bohemian twist to my everyday look?
