Fake Lashes

I don't wear fake eyelashes that often. Luckily I naturally have quite long eyelashes.. but on a night out when I really want to glam up I will sometimes stick some on!

My favourites to wear are the Eylure Naturalites Intense 140 False Eyelashes. Here are some pictures from a recent night out of me wearing them...

I like these lashes because they are really easy to put on and comfortable to wear. I find them a little too long so I cut them and bend them to fit my eye shape. They are long lasting and I have never had any experiences of them falling off or only ending up with one after a heavy night! (touch wood)

I have also tried the girls aloud collection by Eyelure and would really recommend the Nicola ones as they are quite natural looking.

Next on my list to try is the Katy Perry collection (im very excited about this as she always has lush lashes!).

I also want to try out some MAC ones.. I hear on the grape vine number 4 is meant to be really nice for a natural look.

Do you wear lashes? If so what ones would you recommend?

Lots of love,

London Fashion Week

London Fashion Week has officially started! I was lucky enough this year to be able to attend one of the shows. The company I am interning with got me tickets to see Spijkers en Spijkers A/W show and it was all very exciting as i've never been before!

Here are some of the photos I managed to take...

I was in the second row so I had quite a good view and it was a very surreal experience! I really enjoyed it and I would definitely recommend going.

This show in particular was based on 'Birds of Paradise' and used a lot of bright colours to enhance autumn and winter colours such as mulberry. The models wore alice bands with neon earrings and bright bold blue eyeshadow for a pop of colour. Their hairstyles were very 1920's and immaculate.

I also noticed a lot of dip-dye hairstyles in people that attended the shows which I thought looked really nice and is clearly going to be a trend this year.

I hope you find this post interesting!

Lots of love,

MAC Lipsticks- Angel, Pink Nouveau, Lady Danger

Hey lovelies! I hope you are all well! I thought I would show you an insight into my MAC lipstick collection. I am really interested in seeing the colours that other people own and am a huge fan of lipsticks so I hope you enjoy having a nosey at mine :).

Pink Nouveau

Lady Danger


Pink Nouveau, Lady Danger, Angel

Angel, Pink Nouveau, Lady Danger

MAC lipsticks are a really well-known brand which is very reliable for getting good results. In my collection I have three lipsticks and I have been really pleased with the results of all of them! I have a nude soft pink- Angel, a bright pink- Pink Nouveau (post done on this earlier) and lastly I have a vivid bright coral red- Lady Danger. I enjoy mixing them for both day and night time looks and I think they are great staples for beginners to start out with. The colour is always really long-lasting and you can apply as much as you want for either a bold statement or just a hint of colour. The only thing I would suggest is to always apply a lip balm first as they can be a bit drying and do show up flakes on the lips.

What lipstick colours would you recommend? I'm really interested in going for some darker colours like Dubonnet and Prince Noir!

Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend.

Lots of love,

Valentines Dress

Valentines day is creeping up slowly, and I have found a dress that I think would be perfect for the occasion and at a bargain price! It is a dress that is definitely on my wishlist as I have been looking for a tartan dress for a really long time. If anyone is a fan of Rihanna or Lucy from the Only Way Is Essex you may have spotted something similar. In fact Lucy Mecklenburgh wore this dress in TOWIE. I think the red colour and cute design makes it perfect for romance, love and valentines day!

It can be found at Ruby Rooms for the bargain price of  £20

Or from Lucy Mecklenburgh's website for  £30

Lots of love,

Favourite Fragrance

At the moment I am really loving a certain perfume! Its called 'Naughty Alice' and its by Vivienne Westwood.

Its a cheeky girly floral scent that is also quite musky and sexy. I received it as a present at christmas time and I have not stopped wearing it since! It is a great perfume for both day and night because of the contrasting girly floral for day time and the musky sexy/naughty for night time. The aroma includes black rose, carnal violet, and ylang ylang. The scent is really long lasting and I have had great compliments whenever I have worn it!

The bottle is absolutely gorgeous and it has a really cute little blue heart on it so it's great to display on a dressing table.

Overall I would really recommend this perfume.. definitely give it a sniff when you next pass the beauty counters!

What scents are you loving at the moment?

Lots of love,

Cold weather and Dry Skin solution- Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream

The weather lately in the UK has been absolutely freezing!! As a result I have suffered from horrible chapped lips and dry skin. A great solution for this that I would I recommend is Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Skin Protectant Cream. It is a skincare classic that is described as a multi tasking cream that soothes, restores, calms and helps relieve chapped, cracked, dry skin and smoothes roughness, redness and minor skin irritations.

It does exactly what it says on the tin! I first discovered it when I was coming back from holiday and was horribly sunburnt! The aircon on the plane was killing me and I was literally a tomato. I decided I drastically needed something to moisturise my skin to try and prevent peeling and drying. I had heard a lot of good reviews about this product and one of my friends swore by it so I hastily bought it and slathered it all over my face! Since then it has been a staple product of mine and it is a great moisturiser.

It is a really thick product which has quite a sticky consistency, and a small amount goes a long way. It really is multi tasking the range of things it can be used for is incredible. For example as a lipbalm, on dry/irritated skin, face mask to give some needed moisturiser, to help eyebrows stay in one place, to give a healthy sheen, to moisturise cuticles.. the list goes on!

I would definitely recommend trying this stuff out.. especially in this cold weather.

Lots of love,
