I want to feel confident in fashion! I’ve been told I have a quirky style mix between effortless casual chic and inner rock chick. But when I am in work, I nod to power dressing as well. But I have a fear of fashion trends, which I am trying to break! I mentioned a little bit in the #LaceinFashion post how much I fear it and how I am slowly starting to introduce ‘fashion pieces’ into my style. (The thought of colourful culottes trousers still scares me, though)
Do you ever sit flicking your way through Instagram, staring at all those gorgeous faltlays and dreamy desk spaces with a billion green plants, plenty of ‘blog photography’ props and just inspirational goals – Then you turn your head and look at your current desk space? And think hmph why can’t I have that? – The truth is you can, but we are all human, we have VERY busy hectic lives. Heck! Most of us juggle a full-time job/childcare or family priorities with this blogging malarkey. So a clear white desk with pristine rose gold stationery and inspiration on the walls is just not top of our list. No matter how much we wish it.
If you are a fashion student, blogger, inspired by or already in the fashion industry then I really think visiting Bath’s Fashion Museum and their new Lace in Fashion section is a great idea for you… There are so much history, gorgeous pieces and even recent celebrity dresses for you to look at and get inspired by.
The false nails that are true to size and perfectly strong and flexible. KISS via a PR sent me some nail products ready for Valentine’s day, but I couldn’t wait to try them and I opted straight for the natural french manicure design. NO ONE has realised I have false nails on & they are SO strong – I genuinely love them!
“I am a Benefit virgin” – Well I was till NOW!
I went to the Benefit, at Boots Llantrisant Event for the night before their Launch of They’re Real Beyond Double the Lip and Duo Shadows. I was hooked. They showed us two looks, and allowed me to play with the makeup! Old and new lines.
Everyone gets struck by writers blog/ lack of inspiration or just lost their way and it’s OK. No one’s a robot we are all human with real life complications so a break may be needed but for those times you don’t want a break just a little nudge in the right direction for inspiration then look no further than here.
I am going to share with you 25 post ideas, some you may have seen passed around a bit through the blogging sphere but some are I think quite unique. Also, I am going to share with you 5 blog photo ideas that pretty much anyone can create.
So we are now into 2017 and there will be lots of new fun things to do and new makeup lines to try soon.
In the mean time, I thought, I’d share with you, my favourite and most used makeup and beauty items of 2016 in my beauty stash. I am a girl of habit, I will admit that I am a Taurean, stubborn and kind of hate change. So when I find a product I like, I stick to it pretty much for months!
So 2016 had not been a great year for the world, but I made the decision to forget about the world for my own selfish reasons. The world is going to run whether I dislike what has happened or not.
So for me the year has been a mix of very odd ups and downs – I’ve gone through phases of over productiveness which have brought on stress anxiety attacks and then I have boring I’m so lazy I’ve watched nearly an entire season on Netflix of something in one whole day. (who else is with me on this?)
So I wear lipstick or some kind of lip colouring product every day that I leave the house, and I reapply throughout the day and yes, it dries out my lips. Every night I used to apply faithful vaseline in hope it would work… it would for the morning, reapply lipstick and by lunch time, lipstick has worn off and hello dry lips with a little crack that I can’t help but bite off, leaving my poor lips bleeding a little till… I reapply with lippy again!
At last, I have a found a product that pretty much lasts hydration wise all day with the right application and setting time used. That’s sometimes our problem isn’t it girls, not enough time to let that moisturiser soak in and foundation sit nicely before we go and put another layer of something on top! (This can affect the durability and use of the product) I use the original balm every night just before bed and if I have used very little lip product throughout the day, when been out in the cold I may apply a small amount just to keep a barrier from the harsh weather.
I apologise that this isn’t my best piece of work but it is incredibly hard to montage photos from an online shop with different backgrounds in each photo.
As you can see, I have put together a little montage of pieces you can buy, or get an idea from if you don’t want to go full out for Christmas this year, don’t have much money to splash out on decorations or just want to a bit more sophisticated minimalistic look.
You’ve got a friend, girlfriend or family member that is vegan or vegetarian and you aren’t sure what you can actually buy them? Or maybe you just didn’t realise that most makeup brands aren’t vegan/ cruelty-free friendly. In this post, I hope to help and perhaps educate you.
Things you can do with your new date, beau or partner around the Christmas festive period whether you celebrate Christmas or not.
Robyn does not celebrate Christmas as such, he doesn’t stop me or anyone else enjoying themselves just doesn’t part-take as much. So I have a list of amazing things you can do around the Christmas period that can be Christmas related or just winter fun.
