Molicia Mondays:Santa Baby…

It’s Christmas in just over a month! Personally, December is my favourite month of the year because it’s Sagittarius season. And that means it’s my birthday (1st December, feel free to send me gifts…) Having my birthday and Christmas in one month makes it extra special and means piles of presents. I’ve made sure I’ve been a very good girl this year, so I’ve created a list of things that I desire which includes many Winter must-haves for every fashion and beauty lover.

  • Adidas Tracksuit Bottoms

To be honest, I’ve wanted these before Kylie Jenner wore them. One of my friends has a pair in navy blue and they tick every box from comfort to how they flatter my body shape. That said, if you’ve been reading my posts for a while you’ll know black is my favourite colour to wear which makes these 10x more appealing.

  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit

Calling all beauty gurus, you know what this is and what it does. I have been crazy about Anastasia Beverly Hills ever since I saw my glam favourites such as Kim Kardashian and Amrezy use it. I want the cream kit because I prefer looking dewy over matte. ATTENTION UK READERS… I discovered Cult Beauty a UK site that sells ABH and Huda Beauty lashes!!!! Finally we can join the crazes with the US and Dubai.

  • Ankle boots

As much as I adore these Dior boots, there’s no way in hell I can afford them any time soon. Thankfully there are so many high street versions of these available from places like Zara and Office that have just as much of a place on my Christmas list.

  • Hair Extensions

After years of following online beauty gurus such as Carli Bybel and Amrezy I’ve always been jealous of their hair. Although my hair is pretty long, I desire a much needed volume boost. So Santa, please give me some Bellami hair extensions or the money needed to get them.

  • Camera

A camera is more of a need rather than an item I lust for. I want to start developing my photography skills and eventually do a photography course. I’ve heard great things about the Nikon CoolPix l340 on reviews and I can’t wait to get my hands on one so I can start learning ASAP.

My Christmas list is a lot longer, but these are the items that I want desperately. As I said above, I’ve been a good girl this year, so I’m hoping some good karma will do me justice. If I do receive any of these items, I’ll be sure to do a blog post on them and hopefully they’ll the photos will be taken with my new camera 😉

Happy Sagittarius season!

How To Dress To Impress At Your Job Interview

Sleek hair and nude toned makeup.

Have a job interview soon and want to look professional but at the same time keep true to your style? I have the answers! I was in this situation myself this week. In the past I have kept it simple with a pencil skirt and a blouse but I felt uncomfortable and I certainly didn’t feel like myself. This time around though I was convinced that I could succeed the interview and look stylish at the same time. Here’s how I did it:

The Face & Hair

I have read soooooooo many articles that claim to look as natural as possible in regards to your makeup. But not all of us feel confident without our glam and that could massively affect your performance in the interview. I want to be confident and powerful! And I don’t know about you but any company that would prefer me to not feel this way is one that I would not wish to be employed by.

I did try and keep my makeup simple. I toned down my usual smokey eye by using lighter colours. I used bronzer on the lid, Naked 2 in shade ‘tease’ on the socket and outer crease and ‘bootycall’ on the inner corner. Topped with liquid liner and a few coats of mascara. I also stuck to my usual highlight and contour and finished with a nude lipstick.

Just having straight hair doesn’t make me feel as though I look professional and therefore I decided to do one of my favourite hair styles which is fool proof on even the worst of your bad hair days.

First, I straightened my hair with GHD irons. I then put my hair in a middle parting and separated the two sides and placed that hair behind my ears. After, back-comb the crown in two sections. Spritz some hairspray and brush out the back-comb starting at the bottom of the hair to ensure that your effort is not wasted and you have the volume required.

The Outfit

Dress: New Look, Bracelet: Marc Jacobs

Don’t want to opt for the pencil skirt and blouse combo? Stand out and your interview with a jumper dress. Dresses are a great way to feel good at an interview but make sure it is at least knee-length. The dress that I’m wearing has the shirt collar within the dress. However, you could achieve the same look with a jumper dress and a white blouse underneath, or even a shirt underneath a v-neck jumper with a pair of black trousers would look just as fab. To finish the look I teamed this with a pair of black heels. Make sure you can walk properly in the heels you choose though, you don’t want to LITERALLY stumble at the first hurdle!

And if you don’t believe that this is a great idea for an interview, then you don’t have to listen to me. But here’s a fact… I got asked to do a trial day at the company so I must’ve done something right 😉

Of course, the look is just the first part but first impressions are so important and if you feel super confident in your clothes, it really makes a great difference to how comfortable you feel in the interview.

Have a great weekend guys!

🌸 Wise Words Wednesday 🌸

  
Growth. As a person, you cannot move through life without experiencing some trials that make you feel bad. You are the lotus and this is your mud. Whatever your version of the mud is, it is still used for the same purpose. Growth. Life has a funny way of making us suffer in order to learn and reap the benefits. 

So, when life pushes you into a mud puddle, smother yourself in that mud and you’ll blossom into a lotus.
