    So I just wanted to talk about a campaign I was recently introduced. The campaign called ‘I Can Never Be Too Much’ is for design house Georg Jensen and stars five strong females who have defied conventions and risen to the tops of their industries. A completely different approach to design brand advertising – it’s so revitalising to see a campaign video with a serious message as opposed pouts and poses.

    I think this Georg Jensen campaign is particularly significant  at this moment in time – with the current news such as Donald Trump’s presidential reign and the on-going fight for equal wages as well as many other problems us women face all over the world due to simply being stereotyped not as ‘able’ as men. Which is completely false obviously. susannebier_2

    Whilst researching into this campaign I also found out some interesting facts that you guys might want to take in:

    • Women are TOTALLY underrepresented in Parliament and Government – although 2016 is the record number for women in UK government, still only 29% are women.  Pretty poor for a ‘record number’. 
    • Women on average comprise about 30% of the workforce at the world’s largest tech companies, including Google, Microsoft, Twitter and Facebook.
    • Women are far more likely to be the victims of human trafficking – a HUGE 80% are girls. 
    • Female soldiers face rape and harassment – between one fifth and one half of female veterans were sexually harassed while on active duty, and women are more likely to leave with PTSD from rape than from actual fighting
    • Women overall are at a greater risk of rape and domestic violence – In fact, women between the ages of 15 and 44 are at a greater risk of experiencing rape or domestic violence than cancer, car accidents, war or malaria, according to the World Bank. And as much as 70% of women worldwide experience violence during their life.

    Lets RAISE these percentages of women in the workplace, reduce the percentages of rape, trafficking and abuse (altogether – it’s just as abominable for a man to go through that) and start making the world more aware that men and women are EQUAL and just as ABLE as each other. Let’s make more campaigns like Georg Jensen’s viral and show everyone these incredible women doing these ‘usually’ stereotyped ‘man-orientated’ jobs. These strong woman have showed that you can defy conventions and rise to the top of your game!

    Happy HOLIDAYS! This time of year will never get old for me – I LOVE it. I always have my very own tree in my room and decorate it with my many decorations I’ve been collecting for years – however this year I was given a new addition.. the most important addition to a tree in fact. The ANGEL. My mum surprised me with this amazing Alice & Olivia bespoke Angel tree topper. She’s more like an actual doll than just a decoration. And she’s SO CHIC. She’s definitely something I will be keeping forever and putting on my tree for the rest of my life. Links to purchase her are on this page.

    Toni&Guy X Matthew Williamson Glamour Washbag

    beauty8This is so perfect for any fashionista who also loves to look after their hair! A collab made in heaven with two amazing brands – Toni&Guy and British MAJOR designer Matthew Williamson. I’m so in love with the design of the washbag by Matthew Williamson – and everyone gets a new washbag for Christmas right? It’s almost too nice to store your shampoos in. And lets talk about the shampoos – I’m actually using these myself and they are working wonders. They smell amazing too. The 3D volumiser that comes with this is one of my faves – a product that actually works and doesn’t leave a sticky build up. Will talk more about that product in a bit… stay tuned…

    You can purchase this washbag right here… just click right here… yep

     

    Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette

    beauty2

    So This is officially my most favourite product to ever be made. And that’s a statement coming from me. I own A LOT of eyeshadow palettes and this not only has all the perfect colours, pigment and longevity to stay on your eys but the shadows SMELL LIKE CHOCOLATE. This product has been on the market for a while and for some reason I detained myself from buying it until now as I thought the whole thing was just a marketing ploy and it wouldn’t actually smell like chocolate… but it truly does and even if it didn’t I would still purchase anyway as the shadows themselves are fabulous; they never fall. The packing itself is simply genius. A definite christmas must have for the makeup and chocolate lover… or even just makeup lover!

    Vita Liberata TRYSTAL MINERALS Bronzerbeauty1As most girls who like to tan themselves know – Vita Liberata is up there with the luxury tanning brands. Their products are great and this one is the worlds first self-tanning bronzer. In simple terms – it’s a normal bronzer that you use to tan/contour your face after applying your foundation or moisturizer BUT the tan actully stays for 3-7 days. Pretty cool huh? It’s a great gift and you should definitely try this out.

     

    Christmas Berry Nail Varnish Triobeauty6

    The perfect stocking filler! This limited edition Christmas set contains three mini nail varnishes in limited edition berry hues. The perfect festive colours and comes in adorable packaging. beauty5

     

    Toni&Guy X Sophia Webster Limited Edition 3D Volumiser 
    beauty9This is ANOTHER AWEEESOME collab from Toni&Guy with British Shoe designer Sophia Webster (I see their Brit pattern!). Sophia Webster is one of my fave designers at the moment so this particularly excited me – especially with the gorgeous packaging designed by her. Following on from what I was talking about in my first post – this is a larger edition (and Sophia Webster edition) of the 3D volumiser which I LOVE LOVE LOVE. It is honestly my go-to product. It gives you a volumised look without the horrible sticky-texture that comes with most of the ‘volumiser/spray’ products. Purchase here 

    Hydraluron Moisturiser and Nanoblur 
    beauty4So this is probably one of the most exciting products I’ve recieved all year. Nanoblur is a prouct said to make you look 10 years younger. It is recommended for those of the ‘selfie era’ to achieve flawless skin in pictures without the photoshop. This product doesn’t ‘remove your wrinkles’ as such but provides superficial coverage of skin imperfections – basically giving the opitcal illusion that your imperfections have been improved. When I first tried this – I tested it out on my hand and I was completely amazed. There was a clear section of my hand that was SO smooth and flawless compared to the rest. And obviously when I used it on my face there were no disappointments – It clearly works. The perfect christmas pressie for any selfie lover. And lets not forget the Hydraluron moisturiser from the same lab. It is honestly one of the best moisturisers i’ve ever used and I find it so hard to find an afforable moisturiser that genuinely replenishes your skin and takes away all dryness.

    Purchase Nanoblur here 

    Purchase Hydraluron Moisture booster

     

    Topshop Lip Ombrebeauty13

    This is SOOOO COOL. I actually love Topshop makeup – they’ve released some of my best beauty products and this is another cool idea from them. Forget ombre hair, it’s all about the ombre lip these days! You put the colours on together to create a bold look. As this lip is such a statement, minimal makeup goes perfect to achieve the fashion look. Affordable and clever. A thoughtful Christmas stocking filler!

    Sleek Precious Metals Highlighting Palette beauty10I picked this palette up in my goodie bag at the Sleek party and it is INCRED. These colours are from the ‘Midas Touch’ limited edition palette. It comes with three baked powders and one luxurious cream – filled with blue, silver, pearl and baby pink tones. Gives you the PRINCESS look for the whole body. You can use it on the eyes, face, chest, legs.  The colours are so different from any palette I’ve seen. Sleek is one of the cheapest makeup brands on the market but their products are some of the best. You NEED to buy this stunning highlighting set. Like seriously. It will give you a completely different look.

    Purchase right here… click, click, click

    Sleek are also doing these Christmas crackers with a surprise inside… super festive and cute!

    Already fashionably late with this post, I know! I did say that from now on i’d be posting every Monday, Thursday and Saturday – which I will. I promise. Last week was a bit different though as I was posting pretty much every day because I had so much content for you guys! So this look was pretty much focused around my new trousers. As most of you know – I love my leather. I own an array of leather trousers but these are something special as they’re not your standard black leathers. They’re a white leather with flexible zips to create a desired look. The back of the trousers is a shiny lycra material too which is pretty cool and obviously make the trousers stretchy – feel free to eat as much cake as you like in these trousers. These fashion forward style of leather trousers are from Maniere De Voir – the quality is amazing and they’re a great price considering how expensive they look. I love these so much I also purchased them in black. At the bottom of this post I’ll link some other items of theirs that I am loving and have in my wardrobe!
    IMG_5666IMG_5636Also featured in this post is most treasured item i’ve ever owned – my Moschino mini Moto bag. I’m always dressing her up (yes i’m referring to my bag as a person) and in this post I accessorised her with my faux fur racoon tail. You can get the fur accessory look at the bottom of the post.
