outfit: leather midi skirt

9 January 2017

There's something about black leather that I can't seem to get away from at the moment. Granted I love it all year round but I'm building on my collection of leather clothing more than anything else right now. My latest additions are this midi skirt and some new Dr Martens that just arrived so I thought I'd show you how I'm wearing this skirt first, more on the DM's later.

Christmas, New Years and 2017

31 December 2016

Christmas is all but over and 2017 is fast approaching. The Baileys has run out so the cocktails are being mixed. New years is here so it must mean that it's time for sparkly drinks, confetti and even more sparkly outfits so while I prep my face for a wave of glitter I'm sipping on a sweet tasting cherry Corky's mixed with some lemonade - it tastes exactly like cherryade but better!

craving: black leather

29 December 2016

I've probably blogged about back leather a few times before, relatively unknowingly however. This time I want to focus in on my little obsession with the shoe-drobe (and wardrobe) staple that is black leather, or more appropriately; imitation leather.

Day to night makeup look

Makeup brushes are a big deal for me and I now have quite the collection because they're all I use, my most recent additions being a selection of cruelty-free brushes from The Body Shop.

My favourite brushes are kabuki style, short and dense but shaped for purpose. I love the short thin and flat contour brush and the flat topped buffing brush the most but the pointed highlight gets a special mention. All of The Body Shop brushes I've owned in the past and own now are great quality and perfectly dense with these ones being the softest brushes I own - not bad for synthetic bristles that are 100% cruelty-free.

Paired with the use of my new brushes I've put together a little day-to-night post because the other day I had a bad stomach so opted to wear a crop top to work underneath a my favourite baggy jumper which got me thinking about how easy it is to make a day time time outfit sneakily become suitable for a night out.

Beautiful gift ideas for this Christmas

21 December 2016

I love a good gift set for Christmas, a luxury gift set even more so. They're great for giving as well as receiving and the savings from buying a more expensive branded set can be impressive which make them well worth looking into.
