My Birthday Gifts

Hi Sweets!

Another year older and my goodness I can not believe I am fast approaching my thirties..... how on Earth are my twenties coming to an end so suddenly? I still can not grasp the idea of it all but I guess I might as well get on with it!

Well I had a lovely Birthday as I spent the day with my boyfriend, parents and some friends. I wanted to share with you just a handful of the fabulous items I receied, because they really do deserve to be shared.


Lipsy Jumpsuit
The fella got me this fabulous jumpsuit which got me a lot of lovely compliments. It's from the Michelle Keegan range and fits so well.



Michael Kors Wellies
I used some of my birthday money to purchase these great finds in none other then TK Maxx, it's great what you can find in there sometimes.


PA System
My mom got me a new PA system for my singing gigs, I have yet to try it all out yet but very happy with them and even better they have lights that flash in beat with songs played.


Dorothy Perkins Heels
My housemate gave me these cute nude heels, I wore them out recently on a night out to Nottingham and they were quite comfortable but only for a few hours and then they became a tad painful.




So thats just a peak at what I got, some fab gifts and I definitely felt spoilt this year! I would say roll on next year but I don't want to wish another year away!

Splurge Vs Save: Autumn Eyeshadow Palettes

Hi Lovelies!

Another A/W inspired post, this time based around make up. I don't know about you but I tend to amend my make up look slightly when the Seasons change and have spotted the new A/W eyeshadow palettes in stores and thought why not post a new spend


Splurge
Cargo - £35

Illamasqua - £34



Save
Maybelline - £7.19

Sleek i-Divine  - £7.99




I think I would like to purchase a big palette this Autumn rather then a quad - purely because there are so much more shades to choose from. I am leaning towards the Sleek palette too which I have yet to try any of their eyeshadows.

What are your thoughts on Autumnal eyeshadow shades? Are you leaning more towards neutral or purples and plums?

Outfit Inspiration: Autumn is coming

Hi Fashionistas!


It's been a while since I posted an outfit inspiration for you all, so I thought as we seem to be rapidly moving into my favourite season which is none other then Autumn, I would do one based around that...




All items available from H&M

I hear that pastel colours will be quite big this A/W so I definitely like this staple coat, teamed with a simple dress and ankle boots this outfit can be worn almost anywhere.

I spotted those funky glasses which I had to add to the whole look as the Sun likes to pop his hat on every now and then through Autumn too and why not protect your eyes with something not so dull?


What are you thoughts on this outfit?

Playboy Makeup UK: Pin Up Challenge

Hi Lovelies!



I received this fabulous set from the team over at Playboy Make Up UK to complete the #playboypinupchallenge....

Mascara - Bunny black
Lipstick - Front Cover
Nail Varnish - No name provided, but is a lovely gold 


As I love all things pin up I really enjoyed creating this look with the shade of lipstick given. Anyone who knows me knows my favourite shade to wear to create a pin up look is red so it was great to experiment with pink instead.




I attempted a beach babe style pin up look by adding a cute flower to my wave hair complete with quiff. The lipstick is one of the smoothest lippies I've ever tried and the mascara is fabulous! I have yet to use the polish yet, as I'm a little bit matchy matchy I didn't think this shade would go so I'll save that for another post.

I really like the lipstick and mascara though so I would definitely buy them given the chance.

What do you think?

My Chairish Styleboard

Hi All!

I was recently asked by the fabulous team over at Chairish to create my own personal styleboard based around a bar stool. I was given a few items to choose from to create this and I decided to go for the Wicker stool set as I found this to be quite easy to style up.  Here is my completed design....




Wicker Stools - Chairish
Lamp - Chairish
Mirror - Chairish
Rug - Lampsplus.com
Skull candle - Selfridges
Cushion - TBC
'Tres Chic' Canvas - Etsy.com



As you can see I stayed with a colour scheme of black and white which I think goes quite well with these stools. Like also the idea of using a styleboard to create themes for homes as well as outfits.

What do you think of this idea?
