3 Easy Ways to Add Interest to Your Outfit

Prints

Going shopping every single week for new clothes generally isn’t a habit of the everyday woman. That kind of behaviour just isn’t natural, or encouraged for that matter. As long as you have a wardrobe consisting of great basics and a couple of trend based items, you really have all you need! However, sometimes we lack inspiration, and seek out new ways to add interest to our favourite outfits. Today i’m going to be sharing with you my top tips for adding interest to an outfit.

Smart Beauty : Skincare

4-up on 9-11-2014 at 5.46 pm #8

Here’s the deal : you’re never too young to take care of your skin. Night creams aren’t just for our Mothers and Grandmothers.

If you get started on a great skincare regime now, it is more than likely to become a habit of yours that will keep you looking youthful for far longer than if you wait until the first signs of ageing appear to apply some miracle products on your face.

Today i’m going to share with you some skincare secrets that I have picked up from reading numerous beauty/skincare bibles over the years, and simply from my own trial and error.  Continue reading

I was having a good ol’ scroll through instagram today when a certain brand caught my eye; it was the funny sayings on their merch that first had me going “I need this”, only to find out that the clothes were also incredibly comfortable, came in a neutral colour palette on to top it off were affordable! Ugh, perfection. Anyway, enough of that, take a look at some of the rad items on offer from NALA Los Angeles, for purchasing details click here.

Indecisive Me

cute

So, as you can probably guess from the amount of times i’ve changed this blog’s name, i’m a pretty indecisive person. In all honesty I have no idea where I get that from, actually that’s a lie, according to my astrologically knowledgable grandparents it stems from the position of the moon at the time of my birth. Damn moon, why do you do this to me?

How to : Wear Coloured Makeup

How to : Wear Coloured Makeup

Hello lovely ladies!

Now I thought today i’d share with you my top tip for wearing coloured makeup without it coming off as over-the-top or offensive (aka the classic faux-pas of blue eyeshadow and pink lipstick?!). The trick is to use an eyeshadow or lipstick in a contrasting colour to either your hair (as I do here) or the dominant colour in your outfit.

Because I now have orange hair (thank you bleach wash) I thought it’d stray away from my golden-brown and black sultry smokey eyes to something a bit more fun and creative! In wearing a purple lipstick, (I use poison berry by limecrime) or conjuring up a purple smokey eye using my stila ‘in the moment’ palette I successfully incorporate a pop of colour that lights up not only my face and draws attention to my bone structure but to my outfit of choice!

So in closing, you could choose to wear a dark blue/purple liner when wearing a yellow shirt or smacking on some pretty pink lipstick if you are donning a green scarf over an all-white ensemble! Just take a look at a colour wheel and locate the colour you are wearing (or your hair colour) on the chart and look directly opposite to that and this is the colour you should use to add that extra bit of ‘pop’ to your outfit.

Why hello there my lovelies!
What a week I am having ; two days ago I woke up in the middle of the night feeling incredibly sickly as if I had food poisoning, and after another night of pain and nauseousness I finally got to see the doctor to discover the cause of all this was in fact that I was lactose intolerant! Now, a while back I was told to stay off lactose for a while to help improve a tummy bug I seemed to have, but as I now know I have full blown intolerance! You may be wondering why I am telling you all this? Well, having this new found knowledge of how negatively my eating and exercise habits for effecting my tiny little bod I thought it was time to kick my butt into gear and sort it all out! So without further a due, here are the ways I have re-booted my lifestyle and ways that I am planning on keeping it as healthy as possible.  Continue reading
