For Christmas I was beyond excited to open up a gift and see the highly anticipated eyeshadow palette by Gwen Stefani. Her collaboration with Urban Decay has been a huge hit within the beauty world. I recently featured her magnificent monochrome and gold pleated palette on my blog (you can read it here). It includes a variety of neutral matte and shimmer shades along with one or two pops of colour. I’ve been playing around with it and the pay off is delightful. Worth the hype in my opinion.
Happy Friday! It has been a while since I last featured an Instagram post so I’ve featured some shots from a few week’s ago. It has been a busy week with events and I’m looking forward to relaxing this weekend. On Wednesday evening I attended an intimate skincare gathering in the beautiful Mal Maison Hotel. I will be featuring the brand here on my blog in a few week’s so stay tuned. I’m so excited to try out their products!
A quick OOTD for all of you featuring my favourite colour for this season, Khaki. Ever since I lightened my hair and opted for more of an ombre look I find that it suits me better. These photos were taken last month in Berlin and it’s only now that I’m getting to share then. On that day we were enjoying a stroll around the markets and fun fair. I decided to dress for the weather and the fact that we would be walking around the city. My usual Adidas trainers were a must have (I really need to start featuring more of my shoe collection haha) along with my black biker jeans (similar) and stripe top (similar). I went all out with khaki goodness from Topshop with my bomber jacket and backpack (and pretty Jigsaw pom pom). Accessories were kept to a minimum with my favourite sunglasses, oversized scarf (similar) and embellished gloves.
This past year or two I have spent time thinking about things I wish I had accomplished when I was younger. I suppose everyone has these feelings and to a certain degree it is completely normal, but I just thought I would share my thoughts with all of you today. As cliché as it sounds I’m getting closer to my dirty thirties (deep breathes) and it’s true what they say, your younger year go by in the blink of an eye. I’ve gather some points that I hope will encourage some of my younger readers to branch out and explore the world a little more. You’ll find they all go hand in hand with each other.
Just before Christmas I made an extremely happy decision to indulge in some online shopping from none other than American superstore, Sephora. I wanted to purchase some much sought after products that I’ve wanted for such a long time. Plus, the Christmas collections were available and I wanted to pick up the iconic Tarte holiday palette.
