WINTER WORKWEAR: TIS THE SEASON ...



As we approach another winter :-( I thought it nice to re-evaluate the old wardrobe and see what I could salvage and recycle. As winter dawns upon us I for one have a tendency to withdraw back into my 'monochrome' wardrobe - alot of black, some whites and the occasional grey! I guess when it gets really cold I just want to curl up and keep warm and all fashion logic goes out the window! But this year I have decided to jazz things up a little. I have invested in several fashion how to books, courtesy of my local charity shops and I have been really blessed with some ideas. to bring a sparkle into your winter wear add a touch of colour.e;g a bright scarf or an interesting accessory like a brooch or coloured tights or a statement necklace. the simplest things really can can make the biggest difference.
Also adding texture to the clothes, for example instead of buying a simple white shirt, buy a white shirt with ruffles or pinstripes. buy clothes with added character if you are not big on accessories but if you are like me an accessory queen a simple white shirt can be vamped up with a few bits and bobs.
also a statement coat is a big yes! one that is tailored, stylish and most importantly warm!
hope this helps....

LOVES IT: COLOURED TIGHTS!




HEY LADIES! just wanted to do a quckie post on my latest love: coloured tights!! I so would NEVER have gone for anything like this like a year ago! but my new found love for colour just keeps on growing each and everyday!
I absolutely love them. We are a minute away from winter and I think most of us have the tendency to go "all black" and dark and dim colours in the winter but my focus this winter is to add a splash of colour to my wardrobe to chase away those winter blues! and what better way to do this than to throw on a pair of coloured tights! :-)
I was recently at my local "primarni" (primark lol) and I got myself 3 different pairs of tights: in Burgundy red, cobalt blue and lilac. I almost got the neon pink, but I dont know where i would rock those to, lol. Anywho at only $1.00 a pair. I just could not resist!! I still want a darker purple and a green pair but they did not have my booticious size in stock :-( but for us curvier ladies I found out that Evans have them in for a fiver each.(not bad!)
If you are not so sure about coloured tights ..try em' out in store, you may be pleasantly surprised!

F.O.T.D: NEUTRAL GLAM-AMOUR!





SUP! Y'ALL this is a look I wore to church a few days ago, I was going for something neutral but with a shimmer edge! I'm not a huge fan of all matte make-up so I like to add a little shimmer to all my looks, I just think a lil 'glow' goes a long way :-). I am totally loving the maybelline e/s right now! it's suppose to be a dupe of MAC satin taupe but its alot lighter but stills work well on brown skin. Also I totally love the milani eyeshadows. I really need to do a blog on them, they are worth getting people! I slept on them for far too long! Anywho hope you like the look....
Here's what I used:
Face:
Nyx Brown pencil in Dark Brown
Make up forever face and body foundation
Mac studio finish concealer
Stila Hydrating powder
Stila Sun n highlighting Bronzing powder No2
Milani Plum Parfait blush

Eyes:
UDPP
Mac paintpot in Rubenesque.
Maybelline e/s Silken Taupe (lid)
Milani e/s Java bean (crease)
Milani e/s snowfrost.
Ben Nye Liquid Liner
Maybelline Volume boost waterproof mascara (gotta get them tears!)
Urban Decay eyeliner in zero.

Lips

PINK LIPS ANYONE???





Hey guys! after seeing this pic of the lovely rhe-rhe with neon pink lips i though I'd give it a try. now I know we are not the same complexion but I think darker ladies could easily pull this off!
I got the lippy from boots No17 and the colur is Pink power- it was £4.99 such a steal and its very similar to MACs pink novenou which I have also. loves it!



ciao for now ladies
