I just want to wish you all a Happy Easter! I’ll not be blogging on Monday, you’ll all probably be having a drink or two and doing the standard over eating. (Or both if you’re feeling wild).

I hope you all have a fabulous Easter and I’ll be back blogging on Wednesday! ♥

P.s.. I’m very thankful to all of my new followers and loyal readers. Your support means the world! :)

Nothing much happening this week. Recovered well from my weekend of socialising, shopped a little more and finally got back to walking my lazy behind. All is good though, I’m looking forward to enjoying a little time off next week. :)

How good is this amazing weather?! Hope it stays for the weekend, perfect excuse to visit a beer garden. ;)

Happy Hump Day!

I spent my weekend socialising a little too much so I felt it was only fair that I treat myself to a little retail therapy. ;)

image

For me, the perfect pick me up is shopping, and River Island was the place to go. I wanted something bright, bold and chic.

image

The first item I spotted was this fabulous Tres En Vogue tee. I seen it a few weeks ago at a fashion tea and I immediately fell in love. It’s an oversized style and it’s great as you can wear it casually or dress it up.

image

I wanted to mix my look, so I purchased these amazing mutli coloured shorts with a gold pleated belt. I tucked the Vogue top down the shorts to chanel a more quirky and laid back look. The two pieces look great together, I can’t wait to wear them! ♥

image

I could have spent a fortune in River Island, their latest collection is fabulous. They have nailed the summer trends perfectly!

I’ve spied a few more pieces that I’m going to treat myself to come pay day. I like to think of them as investment pieces! ;)

It’s never a nice thing to have, but since moving into my mid twenties, my skin has become quite sensitive. As soon as I’m feeling stressed or want to enjoy my body weight in delicious food and drinks, my skin is the first place to feel the pain. At times, it would leave me in tears and all I would want to do is hide my face! :(

image

Now, I know everyone has their own blemish and skincare remedies, but after trying everything, I moved onto the cooking products (Yes you heard right!). I came across an Instagram image from a well known figure within the beauty industry, who highly recommended Organic Virgin Coconut Oil from an online store called, Neal’s Yard.

I had become quite self conscious about my skin. I was paranoid about going make up free, I was between a rock and a hard place. Going without make up would give my skin a break and allow it to breathe, however with my confidence at a low, I topped up the make up which therefore made it worse. It was all very frustrating.

I had started to give up hope and when I decided to try out this coconut oil, I thought what’s the worst that could happen? Now in no way am I saying that this product is a miracle worker, but, it has certainly helped to improve my skin. I apply it at night time or if I’m lounging around the house. A little goes a long way and once applied my skin feels weird, but, it smells amazing! :)

image

I’ve been using it for about three weeks now and I’m definitely a lot happier with my skin. My blemishes have started to go away and the condition of my skin has improved. I’ve noticed that it is softer and with all this my make up goes on better. Plus, I have my make up free days now! Here’s hoping to long lasting better skin! ♥

Have any of you got your own remedies for your skin? I’d love to hear them.

Have a great weekend, see you Monday. ♥

I’m sure that you’re all aware that I’m obsessed with fashion illustrations. With my art & design background, I’ve always had a thing for illustrations, but since moving into fashion, it has grown!

I recently came across 22-year-old British fashion designer and illustrator, Hayden Williams. He is a fabulous artist and captures the true beauty of style. His illustrations are one of a kind, magnificent pieces and he has even designed a few celebrity designs such as: Beyonce, Rihanna and Audrey Hepburn. The illustrations I’ve chosen consist of a mixture of high end fashion and well known style icons. From the Black Swan costume to a fabulous Vogue Cover inspired piece, he’s pretty much made his mark as a seriously talented designer and illustrator.

I have to say that the Vogue and over sized ball gown that I saved until last are my favourites. I would love to invest in an illustration or two! ♥

Hope you’re all having a fabulous week!

It has been a strange week for me. I slept for most of it while throwing a party or two into the mix. I over shopped just a tad and was reunited with one of my favourite buddies. ♥

My week on Instagram has been filled with polka dots, cocktails, feathers, Rihanna, Jasmine Dowling, a SS14 press preview with the House of Fraser, shopping, shopping and a little more shopping. Hence my ‘over shopping’ statement. ;)

If I’m honest, I’ve never been a huge fan of Rihanna. I don’t have a problem with her, but, I wouldn’t be in a rush to go see her in concert. However, with that said, I have become a fan of her latest make up collaboration with MAC cosmetics.

MAC at Debenhams were giving customers a £5 gift card when you spent over £30. At first, I only buying my ‘Copper Sparkle’ pigmented eyeshadow.
image

The next thing I knew the pretty assistant was hooking me up with ‘RiRi’s’ latest lipstick piece. ♥

image

The fabulous warm shade is the perfect edition to my make up collection for this summer. I love the mixture of colours in it, it’s a kind of red and orange topped off with a gold sparkle.

There is a lot of moisture with this lipstick, a good primer and lip pencil is essential for adding the finishing touches. ♥

I’m sure you’re all aware that the large majority of MAC collaborations sell out fast, so don’t hang around!

And so the weekend is finally here! :)
