Lush Lips

While shopping in Lush I picked up some of their makeup range. Now I never think to have a look at their makeup, I’m normally to destracted with their bath bombs to really have a look. I didn’t realise but I got all lips products.

Perspective lipstick/gloss, It Stared With A Kiss lip tint, Honey Trap lip scrub.

As you guys know I love honey so Honey Trap is my favourite. It’s a super light lip scrub that takes away all the dry chapped skin from your lips leaving them moisturised ( and a little bit kissable) It Started With A Kiss apparently tastes/ smells of apples. I think it’s more of an apple cider smell. Having never used a lip tint before I didn’t really know what I was getting. It’s a very bright red tint. Which I’m not sure goes with my colouring. If you are an English rose this tint is perfect. Great summer day colour.

20141130-004905.jpg Perspective lip stick/ gloss is really on trend. The 90’s look is really in and this fits the nude lip idea but still maintains a modern edge. It’s very pigmented and has a shimmer. I have dark lips naturally so the light pigment doesn’t sit well but I really wish it did because I love wearing it. It looks like dark lip liner and nude lip combo, which I don’t like. I think a paler skinned girlie would look great wearing this. It does dry my lips out (allergy to roses) but a Honey Trap sorts it out.
All in all in very surprised that lush make up is so great. Although I haven’t got the colour toning quite right I really can’t wait to try out some more of their range. I love the packaging, the cute little screw lid tins and the droplet bottle. I can’t wait to try some more things out. See you soon.

Tartans

The post is all about the class on the tartans. If you have followed my blog for a while you will know that I’m not afraid to mix and match patterns and colour and I like to clash things together. I love a mini dress and paired it with black tights and my New Look maxi scarf. The dress is a muted tartan so I get away with the clash. You will have already seen my rings in you follow me on Instagram

Pampering at Christmas

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

There is nothing I love more the a little pamper session to get into the Christmas mood. Who is the best at pampering? Lush of course . I’ve used Lush products for years and am always looking for new ballistics, bombs, lotion and positions to try. I thought I’d share a few of my favourites.

20141109-013221.jpg

20141109-013237.jpg Northern Lights // Father Christmas // Butter Bear // Shoot For The Stars // So White // Golden Wonder // Cinders // Wizard // Snow Fairy shower gel // Celebrate body lotion.
My favourite has to be Norther Lights, to strong smelling and a party in your bath. Drop that little suck in and watch him fiz away. You end up with some amazing colours and little stars.

20141109-013842.jpg Golden Wonder smells like champagne to me and looks rather exciting, a little gold present that rattles.

20141109-014013.jpg
I think I’ll use Father Christmas on Christmas day to really get into the spirit of the day. A piece fell off and I can see what colours my bath will turn into and I really can’t wait. But of course Christmas Eve will be used on Christmas Eve.
I’m very into strong smells and I love the Smell of Cinders sort of Christmas cooking/ Christmas candle smell. I definitely need this in a candle.

20141109-014412.jpg
If you want your skin to be extra special have a butter bear and feel like Cleopatra.

Of course you can’t be lady muck and have a bath every day so when you are on the go shower with Snow Fairy shower gel.

20141109-015529.jpg Snow Fairy shower gel, which is also known as heaven in a bottle. It’s a very sweet sent almost like pear drops, but it’s not sickening so you could use this every day. Creates great bubbles when lathered up. If smelling like a Christmas fairy wasn’t enough you can feel soft and supple with Celebrate body lotion. A light citrus lotion that makes even my dry as a bone skin into the softest of soft.
Of course who could forget about Wizard. I really don’t want to use this little guy up because I think I might miss him ( how crazy do I sound)

Change Up

My jeans are part of my day to day uniform. With winter closing in, I’ve had to change up my day to day. The combination of grey and blue is something I could wear every day. I added the smallest pair of silver hoops I could find to add a little sparkle. I switched up my foot wear to these black pirate style boots, which I got for a snap a few years ago. Ofcourse I wore my Red Herring coat and tartan scarf.

Sakura Blogger Event

Sakura is a new Japanese style bar that has opened in the heart of Bournemouth. I along with many other bloggers and fashion lovers were invited to a Japanese fashion and cocktails evening. Fashion and cocktails is my kinda thing. I slipped into an all black outfit and dashed to the town centre, just in time to watch a presentation about the origins and future of Japanese fashion. The ever so lovely Hannah Jean from Find My Style was our speaker. We were given a little tutorial of oragami tea dresses which was a fun little keepsake for the evening.

Did you know that Sakura means cherry blossom? Me neither. After the origami we were given the opportunity to have a cocktail making master class from the lovely bar ladies. The cherry blossom, is cranberry juice, amaretto, cherry brandy, vanilla syrup and a cherry .

20141016-221504.jpg of course there was SAKE! There were so many different flavours that I didn’t know where to start so just stuck with some Sakura.

20141016-221850.jpg
The interior is incredible, the wood floors, the pinks, reds and blues and the dark acsence. Did you see the ice bucket tables! It looks like something out of a movie.

I had my fingers crossed for some cooler weather, the day started off well but the it was super sunny and hot. When I want to wear a boots and tights combo please don’t let the sun shine, thanks.

A family friend had a two day wedding fest, I guess that is the only would you could use. The bride wore Welles and we sat in a marque in a field. We had hog roast and lamb I liked the lamb but loved the Greek salad and specially made chutney and apple sauce.

I wore this dress to my cousins wedding in June, do you remember? I decided to wear it again with a more winter feel.

To say these shoes are the best leg lengthening and slimming shoes ever would be an understatement. They are the most comfortable pair of high evening heels I have and at £5 you cant go wrong. I really do love the New Look sale.

Triumph Magic Wire Bra

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

I was very kindly invited over to Triumph’s new bra launch, at their concession in Beales in Poole. The Magic Wire bra which uses silicone strips that contour to your bust. I bought along my Aunty.
Getting fitted for a bra has changed to much from when I got my first bra. No tape measure was used. At Triumph the lady that fitted my Aunty just looked at how she sat in her bra and then was able to see which areas were great and others that needed more support.

The Body makeup magic in nude was the first bra that was tried. I liked this one but on more olive skin it didn’t look as cute and delicate as it did on the paler model. I’m defiantly more of a bright colour or black bra kinda girl.

20140906-194103.jpg

20140906-194124.jpgmy Aunty decided to go for this bra.

20140906-194328.jpg
I love the two tone and the nude bow and straps. This bra is defiantly up my alley, a sexy number while still offering support and coverage with matching knickers. When they do my size I’ll be getting this baby. This ones called Contouring Sensation.

Vintage Quarter

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

Did you know Bournemouth had a vintage quarter? A few couple of years ago neither did I. I did however I’ve been to the Vintage Fair a few times. I Spent an hour in the Vintage district with my grandma and mum. All along Christchurch road is where you’ll find the best stores. We went to Clobber which I think is my favourite store. Every inch covered in amazing clothes and accessorises. I was a definate kid in a candy store. We went into the men’s section first because I love hats but have a big head so mens hats normally fit. I did try on a smashing grey tophat but didn’t get it. There was a great leather jacket. Blue and grey, style biker jacket ( I think it was a grand prix jacket) £45
