Monochrome | D A Y & N I G H T

Hey guys, welcome back to my blog. This week I decided I really wanted to be as simple as possible. I had errands to run during the day and in the evening I had dinner to attend and I really didn’t want to change my entire outfit but rather make it appropriate for evening wear. For the day outfit I wore my favourite FCUK black jeans which I paired up with my NewLook side cut out sleeveless wool top , some black sliders and fringe bag both from H&M.

For the night out version I still stuck to the monochrome theme and just added some black heels and leather jacket to make the look a bit more sexy, daring and edgy. I didn’t hold a bag or anything in the picture but during the night I held a black flat clutch from Primark

Make-up and Hair: During the day I had some loose waves and put a purple flower crown to make the look a lot more summery and fun and in the evening I stuck to my loose waves with a side parting. Make-up was just a simple black liner on the eyes, nude lip, matte skin finish make up and of course I had to do my highlighting and contouring

I hope you guys enjoy this look as much as I enjoyed styling it

Products that guarantee a MATTE SKIN FINISH for oily skin

Hey guys , so today I decided to do a post based on facial/ make-up products. All these products were not purchased on the same day unfortunately, I managed to discover all of them within a year after test and trial of numerous products which did not work for my skin type as it is very oily.

I was inspired to do this post so I can help those who also struggle with oily skin when they wear make-up, girls that are tired of re-touching their make-up every half an hour and people that get oily very quickly and their make-up suddenly looks undesirable. Well let me just guarantee you that these products will definitely give you a matte finish look you need and want which will last all day long, makes your make up stay in place and prevents the skin from producing excessive oil.

ONSEN

The first product is a deep cleansing gel which I purchased in Westfield from a cosmetic station called ONSEN. I use this cleansing gel twice a day, this product helps purify my skin and it really penetrates into your skins cleanses it controls the oil in your skin. (it has lasted me 6 months since purchase)

LANCOME

Lancome has become very popular as it now caters for all skin types including Women of colour. When I purchased this foundation I mentioned I wanted a matte skin finish and that I had very oily skin. This product is definite essential. It applies on very lightly, smooth and literally lasts all day.

NO7 – Beautifully Matte

MAC- Creme Matifiante

No7 beautifully matte has to be one of my favourite products, a little goes a long way and the best way to use this product and get the desired results is to mix it with your foundation.This make-up base also works for oily foundations and give amazing results.

The MAC  velvet cream is an excellent mattifier is gives you a smooth matte finish and has a velvet feel to it, and also very light and soft. Apply onto skin before the foundation or it can be mixed together with foundation, either way the result is beautiful

BEN NYE POWDER (BANANA)

 I use this Ben Nye banana powder to set my concealer. I wouldn’t recommend this product if you are going for a dewy glow. This setting powder sets your face to a matte finish and also adds a lovely yellow highlight under the eye.

Elizabeth Arden – Powder

ELF- Translucent Powder

MAC- Studio Fix

The powders are also my favourite products when it comes to having a matte skin finish. The translucent powder is great for control oily skin, it colourless and one application lasts all day. The MAC studio fix powder is also vital for a matte skin finish, it is the type of product would have carried in my purse so that I can blot my face when I get oily but now I just use it once after my foundation application and I’m done.

Until next time xx

WorkWear LOOKBOOK

Hey guys, welcome back to my blog. I know I have been very quiet recently but that’s mainly to losing motivation but now I’m back and I have a lot coming up for you guys this summer. A couple of months ago I started developing an interest in doing videos and thought about it for a while. I have finally done a fashion Look book, something very simple and basic. I chose to do work-wear for my first video because I hardly ever see any content on Youtube based on work-wear and I also thought the outfits are easy to put together as they are some of the basics that most people tend to have in their wardrobe. The quality is not the very best but I promise I will get better.

Here’s the link to the video on youtube |  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z18cgHIRn7g

Home-made pore minimising face mask

One of the most annoying things for a girl that wears make up is having large pores which are extremely visible and finding the right treatment for your pores without having something that irritates your skin or is too expensive is also time consuming. So recently I started researching some home- made methods that are simple to make and only need a few ingredients and found a great face mask which is made up of 2  ingredients and great for people with oily skin like mine (which is literally like a frying pan after 2 hours )pores

Ingredients:

1/2 tablespoon grated cucumber

1/4 cup plain yogurt

Prep and Instructions:

1. Mix all ingredients together to create a thick liquid

2. Apply mixture to your face and leave for 30 minutes

3. Wash mask thoroughly with warm water

Benefits 

The yogurt contains a lactic acid, a mild alpha hydroxyl which helps to keep the skin hydrated

The yogurt’s lactic acid also promotes healthy skin

Cucumber helps to cool the skin and helps to tighten the facial pores

 

That Camel

This week’s post is all about keeping warm this winter but yet staying chic!

I wore this outfit on a lunch date with my girls in Westfields. I remember that day cause after lunch on my way home I was stuck in traffic for 1 and half hour on the A40 (grrrrr). I am in love with this coat ever since KIMYE started wearing it, its still trending and I must say its all that. I wore this coat with a knitted sweater from Matalan and a skirt which I also saw in Matalan which matches the coat and my fluffy heels from Missguided.

I never intended on wearing all these things together but when  did it weren’t half bad. I stuck to simple colours because I wanted the coat to stand out and didn’t want to over power it too much with other colours. Oh don’t you just love the lovely fur piece on my coat makes it a bit more sophisticated.

More details on the outfit  down below

White Autumn

Hey guys ….. welcome back to my blog

So I have made a decision to start posting frequently just so I can keep you guys posted on what I wear when I am going to events/outings. I feel as though I don’t update you regularly as I should (which is really bad) but I will also be doing a few beauty posts and for all my ladies out there I have a few books I need to tell you about that are just so mmmmhhh amazingly encouraging. They cover many aspects of what we go through as women but anywhoooo….. Today’s post is just an outfit I wore a week ago to a family event which was so lovely and intimate and I really enjoyed cause I got the chance to just be with family. I forgot I had these pictures for a second but anyways I hope you guys enjoy.

P.S some of the pictures are a bit blurry but I decided to put them up cause I thought they were quite cool and some I got excited editing sooo mmmmhhh good luck

Thigh highs and Oversize

Hey guys! Welcome back to my blog

I am so excited about winter this year (weird isn’t it) mainly because of the new trends coming out, snuggling up in my warm PJs watching telly and the fact that I am finally driving so that means I am not limited to wearing  certain clothing when I leave the house when its either raining, snowing or icy.

I can literally be sexy inside my car and carry flat shoes in my boot just in case. But anywhoooooo before I start rambling on I just wanted to let you know about my current obsession for this winter season which are thigh high boots and oversized jumpers/sweaters. These two items combined together create a very chic, comfortable and sexy combination. Some of my favourite thigh high boots and oversizsed jumpers/sweaters this season are:

thigh high 6 thigh high 2 Micah Gianneli_Best top personal style fashion blog_Rihanna Riri thigh high 4

Absolutely amazing!!! Now imagine these babies paired together with some of these sweaters

overszed jump ovszed jumper 3 oversized-1 fadf2c472290dbed77726f5237caac12

Now we are talking!!! I recently just purchased an oversized jumper from Zara in white which is so fabulous. Here are some of the places you can grab one of these beautiful jumpers Zara, Missguided, Asos, Miss Selfridge etc

Its unfortunate that the boots might be way off your budget if you want good quality leather or suede so therefore you might end up having to invest a bit more than you hoped.

Here is a link to some nice thigh high boots for a reasonable price from Next ( HERE) but they are worth looking out for.

Thank you

October’s fashion haul

Hey guys!! Welcome come back to my blog

In this post I just wanted to show you guys this month’s haul of some of the lovely stuff that I bought this October. I decided to do a haul because I was very happy with my purchases as I had either been looking for them for a while or they just looked absolutely gorgeous. Now in this post I didn’t actually include everything I bought, its just some of my favourite objects.

IMG_2498 IMG_2502

Just have a look at these shoes!! Are they not to die for. So this week I finally managed to get these shoes after admiring them and seeing them worn by a few bloggers on instagram. I don’t usually wear shoes which are strapped and don’t cover most of my foot but I thought let me think outside the box and try something new. I got these Francesca faux fur strapped sandals from Missguided and they are still available for £29.99. There are also the feather heeled sandals which I also thought were nice but they were all sold out in this colour but still available in red and black for £29.99 as well 😦

IMG_2530

I also managed to snag this lovely outfit from Missguided  the same day I got the shoes. The top is a fluffy white crop top which has a great feel to it and the skirt is a high waist flare midi skirt. I bought this outfit with the intention of wearing it to a family event and it turned out well. I will be doing a new post very soon with the outfit details and how it looked. 🙂

IMG_2512 IMG_2519

So I walk inside H&M just browsing, doing some window shopping (just the norm) I walk towards the accessories section and see this bag,so I quickly grabbed it as it was the last one and just held it cause I liked it so much and kept on contemplating whether it was worth buying the bag, went to the mirror to see what the bag really looked liked and a couple of ladies kept on starring at me and whispering, on to find out that they were admiring the bag as well and also wanted one. At that point I knew I had to buy the bag.

IMG_2504

Last but certainly not least is this faux fur collar which I kept on nagging my mum to get me and I finally got it. I got mine from accessories but it is also available in New look, top shop, River Island and Zara. I wanted to buy the collar in Zara but it was a bit more pricy than this one which is understandable and the ones in New look are about £14.99 but they are not as soft. I also got this pretty gold necklace and some earrings from accessories.

New season AWSS14

Hey my lovelies

Its sad to say that summer is gone 😦 because now we have to get ready for the freezing cold and non- stop rain. The plus side to this season is the new trends that are coming out  (coats, boots, scarves, hats etc.). I previously made a new purchase at Missguided.com for some black snake skin ankle boots and I was so excited about them that I decided to do a post about them. Its that time of the year were we have to take our warm clothing out and dust it off ready to wear since its starting to get cold and wet.

Now I wore this outfit when I went to pick up my car from the garage after receiving its MOT test. I was so excited to finally be driving it (i had been waiting forever). I know its just going to the garage to pick up a car but for me it was an excuse to dress up a bit and wear by boots. heeyyyyy!!!!.

I wore my some simple super soft skinnies ( so many sssssssss lool) paired them with a plain white t-shirt, a leather jacket since wasn’t too cold and MY NEW ANKLE BOOTS 😀

Well I hope you guys enjoy the post.

Rihanna’s Helmut Lang Dress meets Zara

Welcome back my fashionanistas 

This week I felt like showing off my new  Zara dress which was inspired by Helmut Lang’s hot pink dress as worn by Rihanna pictured attending a surprise party for her assistant, she wore this beautiful hot pink Helmut Lang dress with some white Christian Louboutins which I absolutely fell in love with. This dress is a  sleeveless, mid-length column dress with high slits at the sides and an oblong cut-out in the back. Underneath is a small slip dress with circular cut-outs in the sides. This dress is very busy and requires toned down accessories to go along with it and Rihanna opted to wear some white heels with a small black and white clutch.

As for my dress I got it from Zara and I opted to pair it together with some lovely ankle strapped shoes with some gold detailing on it  from RiverIsland and because I was wearing all black I decided to add a pop of colour with my lime/yellow clutch from Boohoo. The dress comes in black and white  and I decided to tie a little note at the front just to add versatility to the dress
