 ||1 || 2 || 3||
  ||1 || 2 || 3||
 ||1 || 2 || 3||

Hello lovelies, this is the second part of my christmas series, check out my Gift Guide For Her post here
Anyway, unto part 2, the christmas party dresses. I love christmas, everything is so festive and happy and there are so many parties and events. I must be honest, I don't actually go to a lot of christmas parties, I prefer to snuggle up by the fire place with mince pies and a cup of tea but sometimes I get out for a party/ event and since its christmas time, why not stand out. 

I put together some of my favourite dresses that are bound to impress at any party. I love simple styles, but I also love gold, sparkles and lace at christmas time.

Christmas Series: Christmas Gift Guide for Her!

Hey guys, so christmas is around the corner and if you anything like me, you would have started (or almost finished) doing your christmas shopping and sorting out christmas presents. Buying christmas presents is actually one of my favourite things to do, I love all the christmas limited edition beauty collections and all how festive all the shops are around this time of the year. 
I decided to put together a gift guide for those of you that need ideas of what to buy for a significant other/sister/ mother/ daughter whoever. Some of these items are actually from my own wishlist so if you are buying for someone who loves fashion, makeup and beauty products then they will love any of these. 

If you would like to see more of my Wishlist, then check out my PINTEREST, there are a lot more items, including stocking filler gift ideas.

Shades of Blue







|| Shirt: H&M || Skirt: Warehouse || Shoes: Zara || Bag: Chanel ||

Happy Monday lovelies, hope you all had a good weekend. I can't believe how quickly the weather has changed, it was so hot and sunny one week and now its cold and rainy here in London. For this casual outfit, I went for the old classic, the shirt. So simple yet so gorgeous and versatile. I added some colour with the shoes and necklace to brighten the outfit, you can change the sandals up for heeled ankle boots or pumps and this could be a nice outfit for work.

Hey lovelies, Hope you've had a good weekend! I have been shopping so much its insane, the Harrods sale started yesterday and I spent the whole day there yesterday. 
This outfit is a bit different for me, its casual sporty and comfy.  I have been loving the whole sports luxe trend and immediately I say these trousers, i just knew they would be great for a sportsy/ comfy look. I wore this to run a few errands the other day and it felt amazing, I need more trousers like this.

Beauty Review - Cetuem



I recently decided to change up my beauty routine and I was on the hunt for a new brand that suits my skin type (sensitive) and will also tackle my skin problems (Uneven skin tone & combination skin). I was sent  a Cetuem illuminating mask from Zinorah.com and after being so impressed with the mask, I decided to buy the full range of Cetuem products and some of their nail polishes . Overall I have been really impressed with the products and this has completely replaced most of my other products. 

Skin Care Product 
 It is a very mild face wash  and it left my skin soft and clean

This is a very good cleanser, it is really good on my sensitive skin and it also removes all makeup. 

This is a nice feeling skin toner that helps to cool, soothe and hydrate the skin. It doesn't feel as abrasive as other toners I have used but when this one runs out I might switch to the SCR Gold Sensitive Skin Toner.

This is definitely my favourite product in the range, it is a silky emulsion that brightens the skin. I have been using it for 1 month now and I have noticed an improvement in my uneven skin tone, it smells good too. 

I use this mask twice a week, usually at night and it is a great exfoliator,  it leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturised.  

I haven't really used this that much, it is more of a serum and it is very light . 

This is a slightly different mask and I use this one every other day, I use this as a face scrub and then leave it on my face for 10mins before rinsing off.  It is a deep cleansing mask and it has such a nice feel to it because it is a gel mask. 

Nails 
I also decided to get some summery nail polishes and they are great. The colour payoff was lovely and there is quite a range to choose from.

Hey lovelies, Hope you're having a good weekend. I have been AWOL for a while but that is because I have had exams and I have just been very lazy if I am being very honest. There are so many exciting things happening at the moment, I went to the Bloggers Love Top Ten Brands to Watch event so I will be posting about that soon. There will be a few more outfit posts to come and a couple of reviews to come.

How To Wear A T-Shirt Dress

T-Shirt Dress


I absolutely love T-Shirt dresses, they are so comfortable and versatile. I created 2 looks, the first one can be worn casually during the day to go shopping and the second look is a little bit more dressy for a night look.

Beauty Review - Tanya Burr Lipgloss in Chic





So most of you know who Tanya Burr is from her channel on youtube, she has recently released a line of lip glosses and nail varnishes so I recently decided to give it a try. I have been on the hunt for the perfect nude lipstick/lipgloss and I finally found the perfect nude lipgloss. 

What It Says: 'If you’re hankering after the perfect catwalk-inspired pout or want an everyday high shine lip gloss, take a look at these gleaming lip glosses from Tanya Burr.
Housed in chic packaging, with a Tanya Burr signature logo, the range takes its cues from catwalk trends and favourite shades.'
Colour & Look: It is a gorgeous nude, peachy colour and the colour pay off is amazing. You don't even need to apply a lipstick before, you can just apply the lipgloss and you're good to go. I am also in love with the texture, it is glossy but not sticky

What I Thought: This is such a gorgeous lip gloss, the colour payoff and the way it feels on the lips is just amazing. I usually wear it with my Mac Pink Plaid lipstick or my Mac Viva Glam II. I am so excited to try the other colours in the range, I think I will try the Vampire Kiss next. 

Overall: 10/10

Beauty Post - Cetuem Lipsticks

(Image Source: Zinorah.com)

So I just realised that I have become a bit of a lipstick collector hoarder. I just can't help myself, every time I MAC releases a new collection or every time I walk past a cosmetic counter, I just have to try out the new colours. Lipstick is one of those beauty essentials that you can wear alone and look drop dead gorgeous, no matter what type of lipstick you prefer, you will instantly feel more beautiful.

I recently found out about this brand called Cetuem and I recently purchased some of their lipsticks, their lipsticks are so rich with Vitamin E, so it is incredibly moisturising on the lips, the colour payoff is ok, you will need a few slicks to get a good colour payoff but it come in a huge range of gorgeous colours  which I love.

Beauty - Nude





(Natural Light)

I have been on the hunt for the perfect nude lipstick for so long and and so I decided to share with you guys what I have accumulated over time and tell you what I think about them. To be honest I am still on the hunt for the prefect nude lipstick. 

1. Sleek - Liqeur
Lovely nude colour, it has a slight sheen to it that I don't like though

2. Mac - Viva Glam II (Satin)
One of my favourite of all my nude lipsticks, it has a satin finish so it is not drying at all. 

3. Mac - Nude (Matte)
This was part of the Riri Hearts Mac collection, I love the matte texture but I am not so keen on this colour. 

4. Mac - Modesty (Cremesheen)
This is my newest nude lipstick and my favourite in terms of colour, it is a shame that it is a creme sheen though because the colour payoff and lasting power is not great.I wish it has a satin finish. 

5. Mac - Hug Me (Lustre)
Hug me is such a classic nude that suits every skin tone. 

6. Mac - Touch (Lustre)
This was the first nude lipstick I ever bought and I actually only just dug this out for this post as I never use it anymore. The colour is great for dark skin tones but it is not for me. 

7. Mac - Pink Plaid (Matte)
Ok this isn't strictly a nude, its more of a pinky nude but it is my everyday go to lipstick. 

8. Mac - Snob (Satin)
Again, another pinky colour. Snob is too light for my skin tone but it is a great blending colour. I wear it with my Inglot nude lipliner and my Estee Lauder nude lipgloss. Makes a gorgeous colour. 

9. Revlon - Mauve it Over (003)
This is another gorgeous nude lipstick, nice colour but the finish is amazing, you will need quite a few slicks to get a good look though.
