Good Reads

From a very younger age or ever since I learnt to read I've been a huge book worm.  I'm not just saying this to sound intellectual but I mean I literally read anything and everything.  I'm never ever without a book in my bag and if there's a magazine or newspaper near me I just have to pick it up and start reading.

I recently decided I would buy myself an Amazon Kindle.  I love a traditional book but carrying them around all day was just too heavy and not kind on my shoulders so I decided to get with the times and make the purchase.  I went for the Paper White version and since then I think I've gotten through more books than ever.  I'm so happy with it and just can't put it down (*ah just remembered I need to charge it!*).

It's super light weight and doesn't even need charging that often (maybe every 10-14 days?)  Anyway, the point of this post was to let you know some of my favourite reads of late and to see if you had any recommendations for me?  Like I said, I will pretty much read anything but my favourite is crime fiction and thrillers.

The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith (currently reading)
My Sister's Secret by Tracy Buchanan
No-one Ever Has Sex in the Suburbs by Tracy Bloom
How I Lost You by Jenny Blackhurst
Revenge by Martina Cole (one of my favourite authors)
The One That Got Away by Simon Wood
The Island Escape by Kerry Fisher
The Ballroom Cafe by Ann O'Loughlin
Stranger Child by Rachel Abbott
The Lie by C.L. Taylor

Have you read any of these?  Do you have any recommendations for me?

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
