Click the products to be instantly directed to the site to purchase. These are my genuine everyday products – I feel as though a lot of blogging sites cheat their readers by solely advertising products that they’ve been paid to. I would always want to be honest with you guys and hope these products can be a part of your life. ALSO, just a heads up – A lot of these products are discounted at the moment so grab them whilst you can!

Another part of my beauty regime is my Beauty Box from ‘Look Fantastic’. Every month they send out a box of products worth £65. My last one was the ‘Jet Setter’ box and it’s so useful as you can find out what beauty products actually suit you without splashing out a load of cash on wasted items that end up not working with your skin type. It’s also very exciting when it comes in the post as you never know what’s going to be in the box!11140463-2144392532120434

Hello my blog babes’! So excited to share this shoot with you styled completely by ME.

In the past I’ve had some amazing stylists assist me on shoots – mainly because I was so busy working, I didn’t have time to ‘pull’ the clothes myself. However, now things are a bit more laid back for my and I’m the director of MY OWN career – I love nothing more than styling my shoots. It makes you feel so much more of a ‘use’ rather than just being the product of a photo. And of course -there’s nothing more important than feeling comfortable and how could you not when you’re styling yourself? That being said – I’ve recently been asked to style some pretty cool people (those I cannot name!). If I wasn’t so busy with my own career then I would totally love to do that. 20160216-04

Anyway, here is my most recent shoot with the incredible Faby & Carlo. I love working with these two, they capture every moment so tastefully as well as being the most incredibly kindest people I’ve ever met in my life. And of course a shoot with me would not be complete without the makeup maverick Kristina Theo! Kristina created my makeup looks and James Tarquin was on hair. Stay tuned for the next instalment of photos by this great team next week!

One thing i’m loving at the moment is the concept of long/fancy dresses with the casual/flat shoe. Nothing works better – especially a bright shoe. It makes the dress that little bit less ‘serious’.20160216-2120160216-2620160216-28

So, I’m going to be completely honest – this blog would be boring if I pretended everything was perfect all the time BUT I was a LITTLE disappointed at some of the outfit decisions this year at the Golden Globes. These gorgeous ladies just didn’t seem flaunt it as much as usual in my opinion – I felt like a lot of the celebs played it super safe… maybe they’re still feeling a little lazy from Christmas. However – there were some pleasant decisions that gave me dress envy! By the way – there will be NO worst dressed list – I may be stylishly honest but I DO NOT pit women against other women. ‘Worst dressed lists’ need to be abolished from every magazine and online publication. 

These are my top 3!

Coincidentally, my favourite outfits this year are ALL in the pink palette! Maybe I’m feeling some kinda girly way but I just feel like these ladies actually made a real statement and took some risks.goldenglobestop3Kate Hudson, Cate Blanchett, Kate Bosworth

 Kate Hudson got it all out and played a tough game in a VERY nude Michael Kor’s number – this colour is SO hard to pull off as it has the capability of completely drowning you out – especially as a white girl. And she manages to pull it off without having a major orange spray tan. People tend to over-compensate on the tan when wearing nude numbers like this in order to stand out. Cate Blanchett blew me away in this 1920’s style, PINK PINK PINK (the best pink i’ve ever seen actually) Givenchy Haute Couture frock. This dress is absolutely beautiful, full of detail and looks like it costs a million dollars. Definitely the most couture of the Golden Globes. And Kate Bosworth was another one of my firm favourites in this Dolce&Gabanna floor length gown. It fits her like a glove and compliments her tiny frame. The structure of the dress is incredible along with the jewel finish. I would kill for this dress. She looks absolutely on point – I don’t know how anyone would’t love this dress!

The Neutral Palette Gang!

These ladies didn’t quite make my top 3 but I still appreciated these beautiful looks. I’m a massive fan of Rosie HW and as usual, she slays in this vintage style, Atelier Versace dress. It is truly tasteful. I appreciate her neat hair and makeup choice that lets the dress do the talking. I’m not particularly familiar with Brie Larson but I think her Calvin Klein dress is stunning and extremely flattering – I do however feel like her she should have done an up-do hair wise. A slick ponytail or bun would have given her a bit of edge with such a form-fitting dress. Floor length, glittering gowns have the danger of looking ‘prom day’ without the right hair and makeup. Rooney Mara also impressed me with her fragile, detailed, Alexander Mcqueen frock. I love the vintage-rag doll look that she’s gone for. Her vampy hair and makeup compliment the dress like a treat.

Admittedly, I have a little crush on Lily James. Even though she did beat me to the role of Cinderella – But we’ll forgive her as she seems like a really cool girl. I think this white Marchesa gown looks perfect on her – still keeping to her fairytale theme but she looks sexy at the same time with the sheerness of the gown and her smokey makeup. Good choice girl!

The Red Ladies

Jennifer Lawrence, Amber Heard, Zendaya ColemangoldenglobesredThese aren’t my favourite dresses but these ladies deserve a mention! Jennifer Lawrence who i’m a huge fan off played it safe in this cut-out Dior dress. I appreciate the minimal/modern look of the dress but what brought it to life was the large chain necklace! Always trust an accessory! Amber Heard also looked stunning as usual in this pretty Gucci Couture frock. She almost looked royal! I felt like the dress was actually more of a copper colour than red – very unusual. Zendaya who always kills it for me did resemble the flamenco dancer emoji a tiny bit but she still slayed!! The colour looked beautiful against her complexion and the deep V neck added that sexy touch for her. She looked incredible.

UNTIL NEXT YEAR!!

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…

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.

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.

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

So first up is the FOREO LUNA from Look Fantastic – this product removes makeup, impurities and pretty much exfoliates your skin making it radiant! I’ve been using it every day and not only do I look forward to using it as it feels so good on your skin but I have definitely noticed that my skin is so much softer. I would recommend cleansing your skin with it in the evening to make sure all your makeup from that day is completely removed – apparently, if you don’t take your makeup off your face will contain more nasty bacteria than a toilet seat. So not only is this super effective but most importantly it’s a really pretty hot pink colour… just kidding. But it is pretty!

Eat your heart of Kylie Jenner!! Next up is the ‘Pick Up Stxx’ set by DuWop also from Look Fantastic. lipThis product by far is one of my most favourite discoveries as it’s lip plumping without the surgery and dodgy bottle lid quick fixes (which may i just point out are super dangerous and not pretty when your lips end up purple and bruised!). This set includes an invisible, reversible lip liner which stops your lipstick and lipglosses going over the edge and also creates the illusional look of bigger lips without the dodgy lip liner lines that drive me crazy after a couple of hours when it goes all messy. It also includes 3 gorge colours, a coral, a hot pink, a dusty pink and the super plumping gloss that goes over the top. The lipsticks include ingredients that encourage the blood flow to your lips ultimately plumping them. They also taste SO good. Super minty. This set is supposedly £69 but on offer for £31.92.

nails2Finally we have the Instant Manicure by STYL. Usually I feel that the DIY ‘stick on’ nails look cheap and not my thing. However, I fell in love with these designs and had to try them. They actually look so natural on and and the designs are flawless – you wouldn’t be able to get them done that perfectly in a nail salon! For the first time, I’ve found DIY nail sets that don’t look tacky –  I definitely recommend buying these classy sets. nails

I’m particularly happy about this blog post because for the first time in about 4 months.. I’m not wearing my ripped jeans! My friends will be thanking the heavens when they see this post – I probably smell really bad… I mean, those jeans are worn pretty much every day. What’s made me even happier is that I’ve found a pair of ‘Mom Jeans’ that actually suit my figure. Being a little on the short side – it’s hard to pull off baggy jeans as they can make you look like you’re drowning in a sea of denim. These are super flattering though and come with a cute belt – how generous of River Island! My only  nay with these jeans is that they’re lacking a bit of ‘rip’… I know, I’m obsessed… *inserts monkey covering eye emoji* .. *gets scissors out*.

This white bustier/structured bralet kinda thang was bought to wear under a sheer dress but it actually looks pretty nice as a simple crop top with jeans – to spice it up a bit I put a black lace bralet underneath and a silver body chain over the top.

Sorry about missing last Thursday my luvs, it’s been crazy. Here is a lil outfit post though. So excited to wear my Rupert Sanderson lippy heals with this Chanel inspired suit/two piece. I don’t wear pink as much as i’d like to… long blonde hair + pink can usually be conceived as something ominous (the polaroid says it all). But the serious, pink suit is broken up by my tongue n cheek Betty Boop sequinned tee.  BTW, All these photos are taken on my polaroid just to mix it up a lil.
