Winter must-have Lips!

Wednesday, 19 December 2012
Quick post about my current favourite lip colour for winter. This post isn't so much a review so I won't rave on about it too much, just a little fave of mine I'd like to share.
I can't remember how many years I've been looking for this colour but I've finally found it. My lips are naturally quite pigmented, so any lipstick that I apply does not look true to colour. Although the same happened here, the final outcome is the exact colour I wanted! Going through all my make-up draws made me realise...ALL of my lipsticks are actually from Revlon! I should give other brands a try I guess.

Apologies for the bad quality photo, you can still make out what colour it is. I'll try and upload a clearer picture the next time I wear this lipstick.

Anyway, do you change your lip colour according to the season? Leave a comment and let me know, I may want to try it out!

Tights Please for Autumn

Friday, 28 September 2012
Can't believe I'm actually a little excited that autumn is upon us. Something about oversized knits, and layers of clothing gets my approval.
However, I'm not looking forward to wearing tights again, it's like wearing jeans! So, imagine my delight at receiving a pair of hold-ups from the lovely team at Tights Please.

Perfect for covering my pale legs minus the crotch-tugging situation! After wearing them for a London Fashion Week after-party, I can safely say they held up. Although these are denier 20, being satin material the quality is pretty good, definitely not the fragile type to rip or ladder. 
Out of all the hold-ups I've tried, these are definitely my favourite. The fabric feels tough, almost like opaque 60 tights yet you get a denier 20 look.

The only 'problem' I'd say I had was the fact that I kept having to pull my skirt down to cover the lace being on show. The width at the top area of the hold-up is quite wide. The highest I could get the hold-up to sit is about nine inches above my knee. This is something that is stated on their website so no surprises there. 
This would be okay for people who want to flash a bit of lace, but if like me, you are trying to pretend that you're wearing tights then it's slightly irritating.

Nevertheless, that won't stop me from wearing them as the quality is pretty decent compare to my other pairs so, this is definitely a keeper for me.

What are your thoughts, do you guys prefer hold-ups over tights?

Fashion Week on the Catwalk

Wednesday, 8 August 2012
Has everyone gone Olympicmania? Or are you sick and tired of it? I must admit, I thought I'd be the type to block it all out but all the fuss has got me glued to the TV (actually BBC iPlayer)!

Nevertheless, at the back of my mind all I can think about is...London Fashion Week Sept 2012!!
Going through last season's pictures, reminiscing the crazy week of tea drinking and clicking away at the end of the runway...ahhh...how I miss Fashion Week!

Have a read of my article published on Dress Me magazine talking about the event in February. What is like to be a photographer at LFW? More pictures will be uploaded to Facebook shortly (I know it's August), follow me on Twitter to get the latest update.

The British Handbag

Wednesday, 18 July 2012
Haven't blogged in a while (a slap in the face), life gets busy! Busy to the point where I still haven't fully unpacked my suitcase since coming back from Hong Kong (nearly two months ago now), a record breaker! It's pretty embarrassing but it shows just how busy I've been.

Anyway, however busy I get, I always keep an eye for great fashion. Something that dropped by my inbox and was worth saving is this, the new edition to Mulberry...Bryn. The Bryn bag is another great quality and stylish Mulberry handbag.
I leave you to decide...what do you think, great British design or what?

Swim in the Rain

Monday, 25 June 2012
Seriously depressing. It has been very October-like most mornings. Cold, wet and windy. I know British weather sucks but it is now starting to become so miserable I'm considering moving to LA!
To do a post about swimwear is probably not a good idea, but since the weather won't change whatever I do, so lets sod the rain and dream of beaches...

Butterfly wing bikini: Forever 21
Paintbomb print bikini: Topshop
Stripe halter neck bikini: Topshop
Halter necks are great for girls with a big bust.
Oasis anchor print playsuit: ASOS
River Island ditsy print playsuit: ASOS
For girls who like a bit of coverage, consider a playsuit or full swimsuit.
Ted Baker floral swimsuit: ASOS
Pleated mesh monokini swimsuit: Forever 21
