My Week On Instagram 

This has been a very refreshing week. I’m enjoying some quiet time in the countryside, I’ve also received an exciting invitation and just yesterday I found out that I came runner up in an Argento competition. Not a bad way to start the week! Today’s Instagram post is heavily dominated by delicious food (naturally), beautiful spring walks and of course, makeup. I’ve ordered a huge haul from various brand’s so be prepared for some makeup overload!

My Week On Instagram ❤

So it has been a little while since I last blogged, sorry for the lack of posts but I wasn’t well for a few week’s. I’m thankfully now on the mend and very excited (as always) to get back to writing. I’ve spent most of the weekend drafting up some fashion and beauty features for all of you to enjoy. For today, I’m going to kick start things with some Instagram love. I’ve gathered a collection of my favourite shots that I’ve uploaded to my account over the past week.

I still managed to enjoy some online shopping (as you do) and I can’t wait to start experimenting with some of my new purchases. I finally jumped on the Zoeva hype and treated myself to the Rose Gold Complete Eye Set Vol.2 and their highly pigmented Coco Blend eyeshadow palette. The brushes are incredibly soft and the palette is one of dreams. Such warm and buttery shades that are perfect for creating a subtle or dramatic smoky eye. I also managed to get the must sought after Kathleen Lights quartz palette that she created with ColourPop Cosmetics. My man friend bought it for me when he was in America and I absolutely love it. I’m a HUGE fan of her You Tube channel and now I’m the proud owner of her palette. (Keep in mind, this product can only be purchased and shipped within USA).

My Week On Instagram ❤

What a busy little week that was! Between appointments, meetings and having a cocktail or two, I have spent my time running around. ALSO… I indulged in a little fake tanning for the FIRST TIME EVER! I’m still in shock to be honest that I bit the bullet and popped my fake tanning cherry. I had the worst fear surrounding fake tanning, it just made me so nervous but I’m pleasantly surprised with the results. I’ll be blogging about the entire experience very soon so make sure you all stay tuned!

I hope you all had a great week and are enjoying summer! (Not that we’re getting any sort of sunshine!) Looking at this post I really need to start getting back on track when it comes to style shots! It has been a while. Don’t forget to come over and say hello on my Instagram.

My Week On Instagram ❤

I love blogging about my Instagram adventures for two reasons. One, I get to share some pretty photos with all of you. Two, it goes live every Wednesday which means that we’re closer to the weekend. The weekend cliché statement I know, but I’m looking forward to letting my hair down.

There is a few outfits shots mixed in which I’m happy about. It has been a while since I posted some styles and I’m really excited to get back into the main reason why I started blogging. I’ve had a few pamper evenings due to the miserable weather (which I’m not complaining about) and some sweets and treats to keep me warm. I’ve featured some beautiful illustrations by the talented Lust List and Megan Hess. They are two of my favourite artists, incredibly skillful and brilliant at what they do.

Do any of you lovelies watch House of DVF? I just found out that there will be a second series of it. I’m so excited, I absolutely adore Diane Von Furstenberg! 💕

Best of 2014: Beauty Event: The Beauty of Michael Kors

Just over a week ago, the House of Fraser at Victoria Square, welcomed the very fabulous Michael Kors beauty counter to their large variety of established cosmetic brands.

I am a huge Michael Kors fan, so you can imagine my excitement. It’s only the third MK beauty counter within the UK and HoF at Victoria Square was the lucky chosen one for its latest location.

I was invited down to browse the counter and sample some of his fabulous products. The lovely, Gemma gave me a guided tour and tested each piece on me. I can honestly say that I was overwhelmed at first by the rich gold packaging and glamorous lipsticks, nail polishes, glosses, perfumes and body butters. After testing out the third perfume, Gold Jasmine, I quickly settled in. The counter itself is a fabulous rich gold throughout with chic print chairs and complimentary lighting for the products. It’s a bold statement, but, it represents everything that the Michael Kors brand represents.

The lovely Gemma also gave me a fabulous goodie bag to take home. To say I was spoilt rotten is a slight understatement. Within the bag, I was given a bottle of perfume in Gold Amber, a beautiful blush called Flush, two bottles of nail polish, lipgloss and lipstick. The perfume is absolutely delicious smelling, it reminds me of being on my holidays. I tested out all products yesterday and I fell in love with the lipstick and gloss.

The vibrancy of the polishes and lip products are unbelievable. They are the perfect shades for this season, although I would happily wear them throughout the year. The moisture from the lipstick is fabulous and it sits beautifully throughout the day. Once the gloss is applied it makes the colour pop perfectly!

I haven’t got round to properly wearing the blusher, I only tested out a tiny tab at the counter. Although, from what I tried, I was impressed. To me, it feels and looks like a combination of blusher and a highlighter. It’s a nice soft shade with still a hint of a prominent colour.

Thank you so much to Mark, Vinni and Gemma for looking after me, I had such a great time. Happy Friday guys and girls. Have a fabulous weekend.
