What's chic this week

Hi all!

Hope everyone is having an amazing 2014 so far. Work is crazy as usual for me, but I wanted to mention this amazing product I have been loving!

Tom Ford lipstick!!!

This stuff is soooo good and luxurious!! Expensive as anything, at £36.00 it's definitely a 'treat'. I only have 2 lipsticks,a beautiful red and the above which is a nude, it's showing as more red than it actually is though. 

Everything from the texture to the lasting power to the packaging is perfect. It feels great on the lips, not drying at all. Goes on smooth and lasts ages! I would highly recommend these lipsticks maybe you can ask for it as a pressie...I know I will be when it's my birthday! 

Do you own any Tom Ford lipsticks, if yes are you a fan?

Barbie Leopard Nails!!

Hi all!

Today im back with a nail post, ive been practising my nail art and I have come up with this nail look....

It's barbie leopard nails!! Lol

It was very easy to do, I put together a little step by step guide if you'd like to know how it's done.

Step 1

Paint nails in bubblegum pink shade of your choice, all except the ring finger which you can paint black. 

Step 2 

Take a black nail art pen (you can get cheap ones from primark or Barry m) and draw leopard designs on half of your nail 

Just like this, and it's not difficult it's just messy semi-circles and random blobs! 

Step 4

You can leave your accent nail as plain black or I had a nail sticker which I put on. I thought the pink heart sticker was so cute so I had to incorporate it into this nail look. 

Step 5

Put on your favourite top coat and your good to go! And there it is...very simple nail art. 

Let me know your thoughts, what do you think of the look, will you be re-creating it?

October Magazine Freebies!!

Hi all!

Now I don't know if any of you are like me? But I always end up in my local WHSmiths store to check out all the magazine...partly to see if there are any decent freebies!! Judge me if you will but I can guarantee I am not the only one!! HaHa!!

Well in recent months, as a whole, the selection of freebies hasn't really impressed me...however this month the magazine world did very well. See what you can get below.....

Marie Claire 

First up we have Marie Claire magazine with the lovely Zooey Deschanel on the cover.

You get the choice of 1 of 4 30ml L'Occitane hand creams, a perfect size for the handbag and worth £8. You can choose from the classic Shea Butter or 3 limited edition scents, namely Passionate Jasmine, Subtle Violet or Rose Tenderness. They all sound fab!! I have the classic Shea Butter scent and it's amazing, both smell and performance wise...great hand cream.




Red magazine has the ever youthful Yasmin Le Bon on the cover....beautiful.

Inside the mag you get the choice of 1 of 2 This Works products, either 50ml of the Really Rich Firming Lotion or 50ml of Daily Boost Body Scrub. I've heard great things about the brand so this may be a good one for all those who wanted to try out some products without paying full price.


This month's Glamour magazine has  Taylor Swift on the cover.

Exclusive to WHSmiths you can get a free Eyeko liquid liner with the magazine, I think I may just get this one, I love a good eyeliner! 


In this month's InStyle the talented Drew Barrymore graces the cover.
With this magazine you can get a trio of travel sized Ren goodies!! These include 10ml of the Gentle Cleansing Milk, 10ml of the Global Protection Day Cream and 3ml of the Active Eye Gel. This would be great again for those wanting to try out the brand or if you travel a fair bit. I love this brand so I'll probably get this one too! 


Company magazine has on its cover  the Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale.

The free gift here is a pack of 2 nail polishes! A girl can never have too many I say so check them out if your in the market for new nail shades!


This month's magazine has the gorg Jennifer Lopez on the cover, I do love a bit of J.Lo!! lol

And with this mag you can get a free 50ml St Tropez Instant Tan face and body lotion. And seeing as the Sun has now disappeared some may need a bit of extra help! Lol

And thats that!!! Phew...that was a fair few to get through, but I love sharing these great deals with you guys!

Let me know which you'll be getting!!

Paris Fashion Week

Hi all!

Today I wanted to talk to you all about my most loved Fashion Week...Paris Fashion Week of course darling! I feel that designers go all out in Paris, I mean it is the fashion capital of the world so I guess it's a given. And this year Paris didn't fail to deliver. I looked through the many many images and here are 3 of my favorite shows this season....

Alexander McQueen 

I have always loved the design spectacle that is Alexander is avant is is blooming amazing!! I can carry on with the adjectives..however me thinks I should stop now otherwise this will be a very lengthy blog post! ;-)

Love the tough warrior look with the girly edge...

I mean you can't not like these incredible designs...they may not all be very wearable but they are art in my eyes.

Louis Vuitton

Marc Jacobs can do no wrong when it comes to beautiful designs. One of my all time fav shows was the Spring 2012 Carousel fashion show...I mean that was incredible!!

Now sadly after many successful years as Creative Director this was Mr Jacobs curtain call!! :-( However he did very well and the show was incredible...a visual extravaganza!

Looks like black is making a return then...

And there he is..the man of the hour....bravo Mr Jacobs...bravo!

Elie Saab

Now I couldn't do this post without mentioning this brilliant designer.  I'm sure you will agree that the clothes from Elie Saab are all absolutely stunning. They are so feminine and beautifully designed and the work that goes into the pieces is mind blowing...I adore the attention to every detail.

Elie Saab: Runway - Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Spring/Summer 2014 

Love, love, love everything from this designing house!!!

Well....there you have it folks. What do you guys think? Did you like these designers, and who were your favourites?

Haul and Giveaway!!! :-) CLOSED!!!

Hi all!

Today I am back with a haul for you all! This is a collective haul from the past month, I've been spending a lot which is never a good thing....but also not a bad thing! lol

I also have a little treat at the end of the post!!! Yayyy!!! :-)


So here's what I picked up....

Based on the recommendations of the uber skin care expert Caroline Hirons, I was forced into buying these 2 beauties! I have very dehydrated skin and I've heard nothing but good things about the Hydraluron... cannot wait to try this. I'll be sure to do a review once I've tried it out.

I am constantly looking for a new eye cream to prevent ageing and tackle dark circles etc. I also heard about this from Caroline and I love the ingredients...on paper it should be great...but we shall see.

This was another much talked about product, the Charles Worthington melting balm, I've heard Fleur de Force rave about see how easily influenced I am! I've used this once and its really lovely...leaves hair soft and shiney! I'll use it a few more times and report back with a review.

I have horribly dry skin so when I saw this Nivea in-shower conditioner on an advert I was sold on it! It's quite a weird concept you apply it and then wash off...but hey if it works I'm all for it.

No haul can be complete without some makeup...and I finally get my mits on the Maybelline lip balms...yet to try but I have a feeling they'll be good, judging from what I've been reading. I stocked up on the Collection Lasting Perfection this stuff. And I got the Rimmel nude eyeliner, it was finally in stock in my local store, about time an all!

I got these very pretty pieces of jewellery from the Debenhams sale, I LOVE this statement necklace from Jenny Packam its so pretty and intricate, a great piece to dress up an outfit. Cannot wait to wear it...i just found my excuse for a day out now! lol


And now its time for the giveaway..the best bit. Now I firstly have to apologise but this giveaway will only be for my UK peeps. However fear not I have a wonderful international giveaway coming very very soon!! So please keep your eyes peeled for that.

Now first for the prizes, they are....

A Mayelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch, it seems to be a very popular shade so I thought why not. Then we have these really cute pink earrings from Warehouse. I loved these, very girly and not too much either...perfect!
