Earlier this month Adam and I were invited along to a VIP evening at Master Debonair, the independent menswear retailer in East Boldon. The invite came through at the perfect time as we’d literally JUST been looking at suits that day ready for a wedding Adam is attending this summer – so we couldn’t wait to get there and have a look around!
I’ve been using Clarins for years now, and it all came about because my Mam swears by their products. I remember when I was younger I was looking for a decent foundation that 1- didn’t make me look like an Oompa Loompa and 2- gave me full coverage that lasted throughout the day. That’s when my Mam took me to Clarins and got me my first Everlasting Foundation – it’s been a constant in my make up bag ever since and I don’t know what I’d do without it.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t get over how quickly this year has gone and now we’re in December! I managed to get on top of my Christmas shopping early this year, and was finished by pretty much the middle of November.
Whilst I was out looking for presents, OBVIOUSLY I managed to find some treats to buy for myself…
Summer has been absolutely wonderful this year and I love the sun, but autumn is my favourite season…and it’s fast approaching!
I’ve been curled up at night keeping warm re-watching Gossip Girl since I returned from my holiday last week, and it’s inspired me to dress better. To channel my inner Blair and Serena, learn to accessorise, and to be braver with my styling. Plus, what better way to see in the new season than to change up your wardrobe, right?
I don’t know about you, but Barbie pretty much defined my childhood. I would spend hours and hours locked away in my room, dressing the dolls, making up stories, watching Barbie videos (remember Barbie and the Rockers?) and I absolutely lived for it! It was nearly every girls dream to be just like her.
It was just by chance, when I was shopping in Selfridges in Birmingham the other day, that I stumbled across the Missguided section…and their Barbie collection. As soon as I saw it, I was in absolute awe.
MAC is one of my favourite make up brands AND I’m a huge geek, so when I found out that they were teaming up with Star Trek for a collection just in time for the 50th anniversary of the franchise, to say I was happy is an understatement!
Out of the 25-piece offering, which ranges from false eyelashes to nail lacquer, I decided to order myself 2 lipsticks, a lipglass and a pressed pigment eye shadow. I loved glancing through the collection and allowing my geeky side to be excited by some of the quotes used to name the products, like ‘LLAP’ (Live Long And Prosper) and ‘Khaaannnn!’ which I immediately screamed, channeling my inner Spock.
