Winter Style

I thought there would be a transition between summer and Autumn, turns out one day it’s glorious sunshine the next its torrential rain. Typical British weather! Though it does mean that I can start to work in my winter wardrobe.

I’ve never worn a turtle neck before, I always thought that I had to much in that chest area for it good. But this baggy drop sleeved one is perfect. paired with high waisted black skinnies it’s a perfect casual outfit. Of course I had to wear my Topshop orange flats!!

Looks: Pink Eyes

Pink  is one of my favourite eye shadow hues out there. For a natural pared back look I go for matte and nude, for an evening out a bright vibrant pop.

DSCN0593The pink in this ELF palette is shimmer central, I love working this into a smokey eye. My dark green eyes are the perfect combo with a pink smokey eye. This is the best for going out!

DSCN0594

My daily eye look is a little bit sixties and adding this Urban Decay eye shadow in ABC Gum is the perfect soft matte edition. This is such a light nude that I add a little uplifting socket colour. Pat the Urban Decay pink all over the lid then go into the socket with a shimmer eyeshadow in a similar colour, maybe the L’oreal Colour Appeal – Platinum Beige.

DSCN0595Most of my eye shadows are baked so to work with a cream shadow is something I’m still getting to grips with. Cargo Cosmetics – Suited To A Tea. The pallete double ended brush is great. The defined end is great for precision application, I’ve worked a pink eyeliner into my makeup with the colour Macaroon. Or the larger end for an all over eye shadow.

DSCN0598I think I may dabble in a bit of purple soon. Hope I don’t fall into the trap of the lilac 90’s vibe.

Fashion Memoirs

Sharing one of the most amazing things I’ve ever done with you on the blog today.

One of the most exciting things I’ve ever done, is go to London Fashion Week s/s 2013.  I’ve always wanted to go so when I got tickets to the Simone Rocha show at Somerset House I was knocked sideways with excitement.

Back then I was borrowing my mums point and shoot camera and didn’t really have a clue about cameras or how to try and change settings for lighting. These photos aren’t the best quality but I love them.

Can you believe that I sat one row away from John Rocha!! Such a fan girl moment, I texted my mum and couldn’t help shaking with excitement.

20131004-212540 20131004-212614

The photo quality is super cringe worthy! I’m pretty sure it’s all the adrenaline of being at London Fashion Week, being at an amazing show, sitting so close to John Rocha making them blurry.

Lets talk about the looks: Feminine looks given masculine edge. knotted mohawks, chunky shoes, thigh cut outs relaxed waist lines. A lot of black which i really loved, the light reflecting of the ruffles the pop socks with pearls on. The music reminded me of Daft Punk and I was in love with the whole spectacle.

I hope to share with you more of my fashion memoirs and highlights.

Oranges

DSCN0421-001I love bright colours but never really liked to wear bright orange, that all changed when I saw these Topshop flats the other day. I posted a picture of me trying on the blue ones maybe 6 months ago, on Instagram, but never bought them. I wasn’t going to miss them second time around. They were in the sale too!!

Blue and Metal

By now you lovely readers should know that I love shoes, like really love them. If I see a pair of shoes that I love I have to have them. This is what happened the other day. My mum showed me there beauties and I fell in love ( I totally blame her ) 😉

DSCN0412

Nude, metal, block heel, t bar, buckle, everything is perfect about this shoe. Oh and did I mention they are super comfortable, I could easily do a marathon shopping session in these. DSCN0390 DSCN0395These shoes have to be worn with one of my favourite colours, blue. The metal is totally off set and beautiful against my navy jacquard skirt. Of course I couldn’t wear head to toe blue everyday ( even though I love to try) This Zara top is so light and the oversized sleeves are perfect for when the sun finally comes out. DSCN0401 DSCN0402 DSCN0406Trying so hard to be Parisian, I can dream.

this hexagonal necklace is so perfect, delicate and masculine at the same time, I do love a contrast. DSCN0413 DSCN0416 DSCN0417I wore

English Pamper

English summer means nothing to us Brits with out a down poor of rain.

For me personally there is no better way to spend a day stuck indoors then to pamper myself with some goodies. Lush are the go to place for a little TLC. I popped into their original store in Poole and snapped up some treats, thank you to Rose who helped me out now end, sniffing pots and bottles, picking the right bath bomb, I could go on about how great she was, but you should go in and see for yourself.

DSCN0373I’m trying to make more of an effort in looking after my hair, I think having curly hair does take a lot of work but, I love my ringlets and waves. This Tangled hot oil hair treatment is just the thing to give my hair a little break from working. Just melt into a mug and work into your locks, leave for as long as you can and ta-dah!

DSCN0380-001Comforter is one of the best smelling Lush products ever! I could sniff the stuff all day ( disclosure: stiffed the bottle in the store a little to much) I lather this up with a bath ball and turn myself into a bath time snowman.

DSCN0374I really have no clue what this bath bomb is called but I love it! It  creates the best magic in your bath, lots of foam and bubbles.

^just look!!!!!!!

This is the thing I’m most excited about Pumice Power, I stand all day and at the end of my working week I can’t wait to give my feet a break. Pumice Power is an exfoliant so I don’t rub my feet to hard with it, otherwise they would be so sore. Once towed off my feet are so soft and refreshed.

I used the hot oil, bath bomb and the pumice power all at the same time. It was a totally pamper fest, I felt like Cleopatra or something.

have a nice day XO

The Hunter

To say I’m a shoe addict would be an understatement, I bought a new pair of shoes today even. But I want to talk to you about these shoes.DSCN0327I love these Hunter sandals, the jell of the shoe moulds to you feet and sticks like glue, which makes them the easiest to walk in. Also the colour!! I love, love, love fuchsia, a huge pop of colour to my outfit. I really wanted to make my shoes the focus point of this look.
