August Favourites and My 100th Post

So starting off I'd just like to mention that this is post 100!  I started writing my blog last July and I never really thought I'd stick to it.  I've always enjoyed writing which is why I started it but with so many other things going on I never thought I'd have time to keep it up or get bored.  But honestly I love it, there have been times where I've missed a few posts here and there and I can't really commit to any kind of schedule due to personal/work life but I can't see myself giving up now.  So thanks to everyone that has read and enjoyed my blog.  It's been a pleasure :)
Now for my favourites.  It seems like it's been a longer month than average, maybe because I had to go 5 weeks between paydays!  Anyway, here's what I've been loving (click the title for links).
This BB cream has got me through the whole summer.  It has a light to medium coverage, a nice glowy finish and stays all day.  I wore it in Ibiza, during festivals and to work.  The only down side is it only has 2 shades but other than that it's great.
I was probably a bit late to the party on this one and had been meaning to purchase the brush for ages but I finally got round to it and love it even more than I thought I would.  It's so soft, large enough to pick up the powder and you only have to do a few swipes of your face so good for quickness.  I use it for powdering and bronzing.
I picked one of their new nude shades up a few weeks ago and in the shop I really couldn't decide which one I wanted to try first as they all looked so pretty and shimmery.  I went for the goldy nude colour and it's so sparkly and pigmented.  I only put a small bit on my eye and it gave an amazing shimmer, I love it so much I want the whole collection!
I bought this pair when they were on offer in Sainsburys during my weekly grocery shop.  I really like L'Oreal hair products and trust them with my life!  So I wanted to give these a go because they claimed to make your hair thicker and restore breakage.  After having my extensions in for so long and dying my hair this is something I really need help with and I was not disappointed.
I've heard so much hype about this lashes I wanted to give them a go once my Ardell demi wispies had run their course.  I ordered them off eBay for about £3 and you just need to use your own glue which I have loads of from other lashes I've had over the years.  The ones I have are #43 I believe and are not too dissimilar to the demi wispies.  They have a real fluttery look without looking too over the top and heavy.  Very pretty and flirty and such a bargain!
I hope you enjoyed my 100th post, bring on the next 100!

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
