Lipsy The Kardashian Kollection

This Kollection is set to be a sell out
Channelling the fashion and flare of each one of the Kardash sisters, I'm sure you'll find it hard to choose which pieces you just have to have. It launched on Friday the 24th of October (Kim K's Birthday) and the latest from Lipsy is that it's been selling fast.
They really have added the Kardashian touch to every single piece in this range, and I do think it's a great way of making us girlies feel a million dollars without breaking the bank, everything is under £100 (although that lace jumpsuit in the middle below..is one of the higher priced pieces, at £75, my man wont be happy)
The range has a little bit of everything, from jackets, blazers, dresses trousers & skirts, to bags, jumpsuits and clutches, there really is something to suit every budget.
As much as I'm not a huge fan of the celeb trend clothing ranges I do actually think with their love of fashion the girls actually had a lot of input into these pieces, and is a name I'd be happy to wear. One thing i do feel is it has a more luxurious feel to it than the range they did for Dorothy Perkins, could be just because Lipsy is a high street, borderline designer clothing brand that makes it feel just that little bit more high end.
Along with THAT lace jumpsuit, here are my must have pieces.....
(perfect for the party season, right girls?!) 
Animal Print Midi £55

Lace Top Peplum Dress £75
Yoke Lace Shift Dress £55
If you cant afford the clothing they have brought some very affordable accessories to the range, consisting of some fab bags.

I cant help but think what with it being Kim's birthday & her engagement last week it all seems to have fallen in neatly around this Kollection launching, great tactics girls! 

Shop the Kollection right now at Lipsy.co.uk

What will you be treating yourself to?

Happy Birthday To Me!

I turned 28 on the 11th of October, after a long travel back from Gatwick airport I have to admit I was really not feeling my birthday this year. 

My boyfriends parents really made an effort for me and took me out for a lovely meal in the evening. 

I wanted to share a few snaps of some of the gifts I was lucky enough to receive, and of course the obligatory 'What I Wore' picture, I've popped a link under the pic so you can shop my outfit. 

Harajuku Bear from my man

Super Cute Panda jumper from the boyf 
Huge bouquet delivered to work from my girl friends :) 
Gorgeous Betty Jackson Statement Rope Necklace
Cute mesh & sequin dress by Quiz Clothing Black Glitter Heels from Schuh
With Christmas fast approaching I will be doing a lot more outfit posts, looking forward to that. So many dresses :) 

Hope your all well, despite this miserable UK weather!

Body Shop Honeymania Perfume & Soap

I have the best friends! 

I was lucky enough to receive couple of bits from the Body Shop's newest collection.....
Honeymania, to be honest when I first heard about this I wasn't sure at all, but I have to say the sweet, floral, yet light scent is beautiful. 

I have the EDT and the cutest bar of soap.....

 The perfume doesn't have a huge amount of staying power, but I tend to use Body Shop perfumes for day to day anyway, this does not make this scent any less yummy!

Next time your in The Body Shop, have a smell, you'll either love it or hate it, but I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. The range consists of body butter, shower gel and much more. The EDT is £8.50 and the soap is just £2, bargs!


Benefit 'Hoola' Blusher

It's no surprise Hoola is the UK's number 1 selling bronzer, it's not shimmery, it's not glittery, it's a solid plate of natural bronze colour, perfect for adding a natural looking sunkissed glow to your complexion. It really doesn't look exciting in the box, although again the packaging really appeared to me the little bamboo details and the green handled brush in the box really add to the Hawaiian feel of Hoola.  
The brush in the box is perfect for making the blush portable and make up friendly, as it really protects it from getting smashed or cracked, and whilst I was on holiday it added a gorgeous glow to my sunkissed skin, i even swept it across my decolletage. Now I'm home and the tan is fading fast its still giving me a hint of healthy colour into what'll soon become my pasty winter complexion!  

Here's a couple of shots showing Hoola on my skin.....

Don't hide away from this even if your fair though, you can keep this as toned down or make it as dramatic as you want, if you are going to invest in a bronzer, this is the one!

Hoola Swatch
Head to your local Benefit counter to grab yours now, or shop it online right here it's £23.50, and I'd say you'll get at least a good 6 months use out of it.

Are you a Hoola Gal?


That Dress

Those of you who follow me on Facebook and Instagram will know that I recently returned from my holiday in Egypt, Sharm El Sheikh to be exact. 

What a beautiful place, and the people there are simply wonderful. 

A lot of you have been emailing me about the outfits I wore on holiday, three of them in particular, so I thought I'd combine them into one post for you. 
So many of you have asked me 'where did you get that dress' eBay, and it was a steal at just £13.99 it's perfect for short girls like me, at 5ft 2 I can wear flip flops with it and it doesn't drag on the floor! It's a lovely figure hugging material, but it doesn't make you too hot which was perfect in 40 degree heat! This dress really oozes holiday glam and I had so many compliments when I wore it on holiday.

I featured this playsuit a little while ago, it's from Lipsy and was £40, seen on lots of the TOWIE girls, and Una from the Saturday's. The bright colours and cool material make it perfect for holiday night's out. I teamed mine up with a pair of wedges, brown or nude would go perfectly with this one. Very online is the only place that still have these in stock. 
These shorts always get a lot of attention, the girly crochet material actually makes them look like a skirt from the front,
 also known as the garment that's sent the blog world into a frenzy this summer... the skort (skirt/shorts) the elasticated waist makes them super comfy to wear too :)
I picked these up from Forever 21 on Oxford Street for £15, you cant buy them anymore, so I have found some alternative's for you...
these  & these
I teamed mine up with a plain vest top, and wedges. Although if I am going on a night out I add heels and a statement necklace. 
I hope this helps those of you who want to invest in my holiday outfits, I love getting dressed up in the evenings, not that I need an excuse.....

Benefit 'Rockateur' Blusher

The newest little box of blush from Benefit is gorgeous!

I have developed a real addiction for these lately, and this did not disappoint.

At first glance it looks like a shimmery solid pink, but it really has so much more to offer. The shimmer is just an over spray for decorative purposes, it's not embedded all the way through.
The texture of this is a first in comparison to all the other Benefit blushers, it's almost spongy, it's not a gel or a solid powder its in between.

The shade I would describe as a beautiful rose gold, personally I think it would suit any skin tone, on even the fairest complexion you'd achieve a natural pinky glow to the cheeks, and on medium/dark skin tones you'd get a beautiful golden glow, with a real sheen of pink. It is a very buildable colour so you can vary it depending on the desired result.

If you've never owned one of these Benefit blushers you wont know this but you get a cute little brush in the box, and there's a mirror in the lid. I love a well packaged product, and the little lace details and the hints of pink on the box make it to pretty to hide away, this one needs to be on show on your dresser.

My only niggle is the fact that Benefit charge the same price for this one as they do for all their other blushers, yet the Rockateur is 5 grams of product, in comparison to the standard 8 grams on all the others! 
Available now at Benefit counters nationwide, and on the Benefit Website priced at £23.50, these blushers last months though so they are worth the money.

What do you think of Rockateur? Will you be buying it?

L'Oreal Colour Riche Collection Privee Lipstick 'Cheryl'

Collection Privee is a collection of 6 different 'nude's' suitable for every hair color and skin tone. 
The Campaign is headed by Julianne Moore and a few other names you'll know. 

L'Oreal's latest lippie launch is gorgeous. And to be honest I long for every shade. 

Here are the shades: 


I have brunette hair and a warm complexion so I went for the 'Cheryl' shade, I love it. 

Will you be trying any of these nude shades? 


Vera Wang Pink Princess

I've just come back from holiday, and you know what that means...Duty Free Shopping!

I bought a few bits and I've decided to feature them in separate posts, I have a couple of make up bits to share with you too, so keep an eye out for them soon. 

I picked up this 50ml bottle of Pink Princess for just £25, got to love a barg! 

I LOVE the glittery bottle and the little crown lid is super cute. 

The fragrance is sweet & floral, notes of pink grapefruit, marshmallow, sweet amber & honeysuckle, it's an unusual fragrance, but very girly. 

This is a limited edition so if you see it grab it while you can!
