When you’re a child, you get a dress from Disney to make all your princess dreams come true. When you’re an adult, you get a dress from Elie Saab to make all your princess dreams come true. Golden threads, pastel pinks and blues, twinkling embroidery and a bridal end of show dress make the Elie Saab show the fairest of them all.

If you ever wondered what Roman royalty would wear, look no further than Valentino. Rich reds, golden gladiator sandals and beaded head wear gave the models in Rome the appeal of an empress.

There’s isn’t much to say about the Viktor and Rolf runway as the garments speak for themselves. However, it truly demonstrates how fashion is an art.

Zuhair Murad was ultimately my favourite Haute Couture collection this season. The colours and sprawled resembles the ever changing colours of the sky and the tailoring of the dresses screams elegance and marvel. 
Those are my favourites, what were yours?

I’m back!

 
Hi bloggers, guess what?… I’m back! Exam season is officially over and I can’t tell you how happy I am that I can start putting my energy back into my blog. 

Today I’m not posting an OOTD post as it’s Sunday and Sunday means chilling out to the point where you don’t feel human anymore and forget about your responsibilities for 24 hours. 

  

There is such great energy around me right now and I am SO excited about the opportunities that are being bought to my life. Finally starting to realise that my hard work is finally paying off!
So for today I am resting because I have a busy and exciting week coming up. My hair is messy as it deserves a day off from the GHDs but of course I’ve still done my makeup.

  
I’m also making a point of not changing out of a baggy jumper and trackies. Slob style on fleek!

Just to add the makeup details:

Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid foundation

Non branded concealer for highlighting

Benefit Watt’s Up! Highlighter

Bourjois Délice de Poudre bronzer 

Rimmel London eyebrow pencil

Black mascara on the brows

Naked 2 shades: bootycall, chopper, tease, snakebite and busted 

L’oreal Paris Superliner Blackbuster
Who else loves to relax on a Sunday?

Wise Words Wednesday’s 03

IMG_1516

Sorry I haven’t posted a lot recently guys, I’ve got a lot of coursework deadlines to meet at college! (Stress!)

To sprinkle a dash of positivity, this post I found on Tumblr speaks volumes.

So, you may have had the shittiest day ever, like a living nightmare and you may be stressed out of your mind.. BUT to stop that shitty day from being even shittier, do something that makes you happy and will almost guarantee a pretty smile back on your face. Whether it’s having a cup of tea, doing a workout or watching your favourite movie with a tub of ice cream (my favourite method), life is only going to be as good as you make it. Throw the negativity away with the hours of the day you have left to lift your mood.

Having a positive mindset really is the key to happiness and it doesn’t take much change to make a huge difference to your life.

Sprinkle the positivity! 💁✨

NYE: New Year Elegance

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/b4c/76193782/files/2015/01/img_0849.jpg

The final evening of 2014 really went off with a bang. As usual, there was the usual dramas and my New Years Eve really was one to remember this year and I have the memories to reminisce.

I’d never really thought that a jumpsuit would suit me as being 5ft 1, I reckoned they would consume me! However, after the Boxing Day sales madness had died down a bit, I took a trip to Oxford Street and found this lovely nude ensemble in the Topshop sales. Reduced from £60 to £35, I was so so amazed.
Teamed with a diamanté bracelet and a pair of nude and white wedges (Dorothy Perkins) nude glam was the chosen theme for my outfit.

‘New year, new me’, we’ve all heard it from everyone before and quite frankly, it’s very boring. However, I feel such positive vibes for 2015 and I believe this is the year my life will really start to change, like a mountaineer to Everest, nothing’s going to stop me!

What are your goals for 2015? I would love to know.

Unwrapped: The Naked 2

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/b4c/76193782/files/2014/12/img_0710.png

Since I started watching make up tutorials via YouTube a few years ago, I noticed EVERY makeup guru had a golden palette that is the Urban Decay Naked Palette. I dreamed of the day that I would eventually own one and thanks to my amazing best friend, my fantasies have finally come true.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/b4c/76193782/files/2014/12/img_0716.jpg

I’ve already spent sooooo much time experimenting with this! Today, I thought my second trail run was good enough to share with you guys.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/b4c/76193782/files/2014/12/img_0712.jpg

I apply: Foxy to my brow bone to highlight, bootycall all over my lid, tease under my lower lash line and over my crease, snake bite and chopper in the middle of my lid. Along with the finishing touches of L’oreal Paris the blackbuster eyeliner and Eyelure lashes in 107.

My only criticism of this gorgeous and sultry eye shadow palette is that to really make your look perfect, you should buy a suitable eyeshadow primer for creaseless staying power. Included in with the pallette was 4 samples of Urban Decay eyeshadow primer potion which I haven’t used yet.

Hope you’ve had a fab Christmas!
