Jaclyn Hill x Champagne Pop

The time has come for me to share one of my most exciting and highly sought after make up product. I’ve have been waiting patiently to get my hands on Jaclyn Hill’s magnificent highlighter in the shade, Champagne Pop. Her collaboration with Becca Cosmetics has been the talk of the beauty industry, in particular us bloggers.

I was lucky to have a family member bring it home for me from NYC. I was like a child on Christmas morning opening the highlighter, it’s just so beautiful. Becca are kown for their fabulous shimmering skin perfectors Opal and Moonstone. They’re incredibly pigmented and so buttery when applying, less is more with this product however if you want a full effect glow, then apply what you feel is best.

It’s a fabulous rose gold shade with soft speckles of shimmer throughout it. Like I’ve previously said, less is more with this product. Therefore I can’t ever see myself hitting pan with this beauty. I apply it to the cheekbones and high points of my face. As always, I find it a multi use product. It can be used as an eyeshadow base, centre piece colour or inner corner highlighter. With light inducing products I also add a touch of the product to my collar bones to emphasize them and give off a summer glow all year round.

When you typical see a shade like this one, you automatically think summer but I’m looking forward to using it during the A/W season. It will be the perfect product for giving me a warm glow during the cold months especially as I won’t have much of a tan. It would also be the perfect shade to wear across your entire lid if you’re opting for a bold lip. A light hint of colour would help compliment your lips and a touch of sparkle never hurt anyone!

Happy Friday, lovelies! Hope you all have a great weekend. See all of you in my next post.

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).

PANDORA ROSE

I have a confession to make. I’ve never owned a piece of PANDORA jewellery… Until now that is! I had the absolute pleasure of meeting with the lovely Catriona and Suzanne from the brand at the Potted Hen discussing all things jewellery and yoga. My favourite metal regarding jewellery has always been rose gold, most of my collection consists of this rich colour. Now I have a magnificent PANDORA necklace to welcome to the family. It is created from a unique blend of copper and silver with 14k rose gold plating. Within the collection there is a touch of pink added to each piece creating a luminous and elegant feeling.

The brand is known for creating unforgettable memories with their pieces, in particular their charms. It’s all so romantic with the collections and a great way to remember special moments in your life. There is a charm for pretty much all aspects of life from travel to marriage, babies to special friends and family.

I was like a magpie looking at all of the gorgeous charms, earrings and rings. It was every girl’s dream sampling all of the pieces while nipping on mouthwatering treats. These fabulous earrings caught my eye instantly, they would help create the perfect festival look. The feather style is a strong feature throughout the collection, it also comes in a ring and necklace. I really need to invest in it for summer, I had so much much trying on all of the rings. I’m loving the layered look when it comes to jewellery so I stacked the feature gem with a pretty bow ring.

Onto the food. I’m still dreaming about the dishes, they were unbelievably delicious. I had thee most amazing salt and chilli prawns to start before tucking into a beautiful chicken and chorizo burger. To say I was full was an understatement but I didn’t want to leave a bite (that’s just how greedy I can be). I would seriously recommend visiting the Potten Hen, the interior is incredibly chic and obviously the food is magnificent.

I was so lucky and grateful to be gifted with this stunning feather necklace. I’ve a few festivals and concerts coming up so I’ll definitely be wearing it to channel the boho vibe. It’s such a pretty necklace and I love the combination of metals. I have so many other dainty gems to layer it with or I can wear it as a stand alone piece. Keep an eye on my Instagram to see how I style the necklace over the summer months.

Thanks again to Catriona and Suzanne for such a lovely lunch and gift. The collection launches in store today so be sure to visit for all things fabulous.

Laura Mercier || Indiscretion 

For the past few years I have been a massive fan of all things illuminating, particularly when it comes to my make up. Laura Mercier is by far one of my favourite beauty brands, I swear by her foundation primer in Radiance and her Secret Brightening Powder. It was Irish beauty blogger and You Tuber, Michelle from Beauty Life Michelle who first set my pulse racing with his magnificent rose gold face illuminator in the shade, Indiscretion.

No matter if it’s shoes, jewellery or make up I’m always drawn to anything rose gold. I just adore the warmth and richness that comes from it, it’s quite a luxurious shade. This gorgeous piece is a limited edition product for Summer and can be purchased here. It is such a soft shade and give off a subtle yet shimmering effect. I always have multiples uses for my illuminating products whether I use it on my eyes, cheeks or all around my face for an even highlighted look. It is a buildable colour that has a pearl effect to it providing a beautiful glow to your skin. Can we also just take a moment to appreciate the glorious texture!?!? It looks like a beautiful rich wild fabric wrapped up perfectly. I’m such a sucker for packaging, I think that is what makes the final decision for me when it comes to buying make up.

Like I’ve previously said, as this is a limited edition product, I would suggest picking it up asap if you want to treat yourself. When Laura Mercier creates a one off product, it’s usually hard to get your hands on it.

Less Is More

I tend to go through phases with my accessories, jewellery in particular. Sometimes I love making a bold statement with an embellished necklace, boyfriend watch or stacked rings. However, over the past few months I have fallen in love again with the more delicate look. I love wearing simple rings, a single watch or a miminal necklace. I have never been one for wearing big earrings, they don’t suit me and I just don’t enjoy having them weigh me down.

I was lucky enough to receive a beautiful pair of rose gold diamond earrings from Emozioni (thank you!) in the post. You all know how obsessed I am with everything rose gold, add a touch of sparkle to them and I’m in heaven. I was so excited about these little beauties and I have honestly not stopped wearing them.

image

The earrings were launched towards the end of last year. They are incredibly light weight (which I love) and they make a nice change when I don’t feel like wearing a necklace. They’re just so pretty!

image

They make a simplistic statement without looking too much. It’s always nice to try a new look and your accessories are always the easiest way to start. If you’re in the mood for a treat to help banish those January blues, then I suggest starting with some earrings.

Happy Wednesday, lovelies. Hope you’re all having a great week. Is it just me or is January flying in?
