Wear | Life | Eats - Easter Special

I mentioned this product in my drugstore favourites video here and I just can't get enough of it recently.  It's the Sleek blusher in rose gold.  It's such a pretty sheer colour, so wearable, perfect for spring and summer.  You can build the colour up or just have a slight hint if you wanted more focus on the eyes or lips.  I love it for daytime and nighttime and best of all it's only £4.50!  Apparently it's a dupe for Nars orgasm so there you go.  When payday comes around this Friday I'll definitely be in Superdrug trying out some of the other colours.

This weekend was the long 4 day bank holiday weekend and it was so so nice to have a break from the world and actually, London.  The weather was quite nice Friday so I went to Brighton for the day which is one of my favourite seaside towns to visit.  Saturday I did actually trek into London bcos I really wanted to see Lily Pebbles do her meet and greet at Westfield, Shepherd's Bush and it was a delight to meet her.  Sunday I was out in Essex for a friend's birthday.  We went to a bar/club place called The Brickyard which was really good.  They played great music and was open until 2am.  They also have a restaurant area which is meant to be nice, more 'fine dining' which I would like to try.  I'm finding a lot of places now are becoming restaurant/bar/club so as to cover all needs!  Monday I went into London again (so much for staying away!) and had a lovely oyster dinner at Sheekey.

No surprise as to what I'm going to mention here... EASTER EGGS!  The one time of year it is socially acceptable to eat chocolate for breakfast, lunch AND dinner.  All day, everyday in fact. Okay, I may be getting a bit carried away now.  I got 3 eggs this year which is plenty to last me and fill my needs.  After that I plan on going back to a healthy eating routine.  I have bought the Honesty Healthy cookbook and am looking forward to cooking up some of their yummy but well balanced meals.

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here . Not only does   Esprit   do runway trends for

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
