A little gift from Tonic Clothing

A little surprise parcel from the company Tonic Clothing, a Uk based boutique and online shop. With 14 European brands for both men and women, the company brings a casual fashion all around the world. Selling fresh new rising Italian, Danish and French brands, such as Andy Richardson, Gaudi, Silvian and many more.. 

I decided to accessorize the dress with leather effect boots brought from Primark and a faux fur snood from New Look. This created an all black look with different textures and tones mixed together. The dress is very well made with extra lining so that the dress fits comfortably and the material is not see through, the mixed jersey with the wet look leather effect fabric gives a good mixed texture and adds a casual effect to the dress. I myself am fortunate in the booty world so the waistband on the dress does make my bum look more peachy so if you are looking for a bit more of a booty and a tiny waist look then this dress is perfect. You can either dress this dress up with fur and open toe stilettos or you can dress down the look with thick tights and chelsea boots. This stunning dress will be added to my everyday wardrobe mixed with some baggy knitted cardigans for this winters casual look.

I highly recommend Tonic Clothing for well made, lasting fabrics and trending garments.

Sunday bunday

Sunday Bunday- my version of a relaxed Sunday surrounded by my favorite people, bubble baths, Sunday roast dinners and hibernating on the sofa in my Christmas onsie.

For the past 2 months I have hibernated on the sofa in my Christmas onsie, relaxed and watched copious amounts of box sets and downloaded films. I tend to make sure that my hair is up to date with its oil treatment to help promote growth and my toenails are freshly painted in a new nude color. Here's this weeks Sunday pamper treats. 

 Eylure pro- brow eyebrow tint to make sure that I slightly human without being plastered in makeup, I'm addicted to my eyebrow pencil so I'm trying to wean myself off the drawn on effect and have decided to grow the brows out and tint them weekly. If Cara Delevigne can socially get away with it then so can I... 

The Body shop coconut body cream and the coconut shimmer body cream- this cream just smells like summer, sun tanning and coconut oil- PERFECTION. The shimmer body cream is the exact same as the coconut body cream just adds a festive shimmer to your skin.

Soap & Glory Heel Genius- This foot cream is perfect for the weeks worn down heels of your feet but I do tend to use on my hands as well, the cream is a rich thick texture that slowly seeps into your skin.

Well that’s my Sunday beauty treats for this week,
Hope you’ve all had a lovely relaxed Sunday Bunday!

What is the secet to Kylie Jenners pillowy pout?

Ok girls we all know there is one gift from the gods above and that’s makeup, we all use some more than others but thank our lucky stars that there is concealer to cover up our unwanted blemishes, dark circles, pimples or like me every crater on your face.

I share a few similarities with Kylie Jenner, dark hair and oversized eyes but most of all our thin upper lip- or at least we used to. Recently however, Kylies appearance has changed and wouldn’t yours if your purse was as full as hers? I know I would. And while thousands have accused the 17-year-old beauty of pumping her lips with injections to transform her pillowy pout, Kylie insists it is all thanks to the clever use of make-up to ‘overline’ the outline of her mouth. But can it really be possible to look so drastically different with just a lip liner trick? I put it to the test with just the brand MUA’s caramel nougat, intense color lip liner and totally nude matte lipstick.

Please be aware that I am not a professional makeup artist, just a girl with a thin upper lip problem. 

Before lip liner and lipstick.
As you can see without blending this does look completely over the top, but once blended shown in the photo below thr end result is a lot more natural! 

End Result after much blending- lips look much fuler all without surgery!

The Reappearance Of Fur

Visiting Portobello Road I came across a nifty thrift shop, filled with the s/s 14 craze of ripped and faded denim but I also came across a lot of real fur shawls and coats! Over time and seasons fur is slowly becoming less used in fashion than a few years ago but the problem with fur is it will always have a hold on fashion and reappears! This statement I came across did interest me as to why fashion can never truly let go of fur.. Is it the luxurious texture and look or the opinions that actually wearing real fur in my opinion is wearing a skinned animal, many people have different opinions this fashion statement.

Could fur make another reappearance for S/S14?

What I Wore Today!

Today I opted for a comfy oversized check shirt mixed with a red dungaree dress and leather boots. The top pocket on the dungaree dress is actually a lifesaver for carrying sketch pencils pens and lighters. Me being a 90's kid I will never outgrow the dungaree look and high ponytail! Personally I think that since the latest trend for checked and tartan shirts they have become ridiculously over priced, that’s why all my checkered shirts are brought from Brick Lane markets for under £5….. Ill forever be a bargain hunter!

I hope youve all had a wonderful weekend x

Leather Boots brought from New Look

What I Wore Today

 Today I went for a casual look, with my vintage check shirt dress brought from a Brick lane vintage shop for a bargain of £5!, mixed with my Pink Floyd top and white leather boots brought from River Island in the fall. This look is my everyday causal look, I’m always lounging around watching films and designing garments for my university projects so this comfy look is ideal! How would I describe my style? I have no idea, anything that I can throw togther that’s slighty in trend but individual! 

Hope you’ve all had a wicked week!  

90's is creeping back

Recently I’ve noticed that the 90's is slowly creeping back with the white pvc boots, the bun pigtails and the bright colours. Mixing a few items that I had hiding in my wardrobe I collaborated this look together with 90's loving. As you can see the Irish in me is coming out with the pasty skin! 

The bag, pink jumpsuit and jacket is all from Bricklane vintage shops and the boots where brought from River Island! 

What's your 90's inspiration? 

Brick lane Street Art!

My general idea and purpose of visiting Brick lane in London was to captured some individual street style but instead I came across some wicked graffiti art! Its good to see that art can be expressed in a form of street art without becoming completely defaced and ruined! Instead Brick Lane embraces it and enjoys the street art with pride and creativity!
In my opinion I believe that street art can inspire fashion!! With the popping colors, printed bomber jackets that are in trend for summer 14, printed shirts that were in trend last Autumn etc etc… Do I think that graffiti can inspire S/S15? Only time can tell with that type of inspiration because street art is constantly evolving and becoming more recognized for art and not defacing property! But the 90’s are coming back to play this summer…

In the history of Chanel catwalks there has never been a mind numbing one, but this year excells them all when Karl Lagerfield turned the Grand Palais into his very own hypermarche, complete with tins of petit pois as grown in Les Jardins de Gabriel, Paris Edinburgh branded whiskey, Coco cooking oil, Chanel-stamped door mats and even power drills.
Guests were free to roam the aisles pre-show, When the tannoy announced that the Chanel shopping center was now closing, the front row leapt out of their seats and raided the shelves for all the Chanel branded groceries they could grab. This fashion show sounds completely out of control! I wonder what inspired Karl Lagerfield with this idea of a Chanel Supermarket runway?? If I was there I would completely indulge in every souveniere grocerie that I could stuff in every pocket I had.
They wore trainers and knitted orange jumpsuits, tweed covered sunglasses, cellophane wrapped handbags and sweetie bracelets created out of those interlocking Cs. Cara danced Karl around the aisles as is her way with a finale.
I am wondering could Karl Lagerfield's Chanel Aw14 inpsire S/S15 in anyway? Prehaps the pastel, soft colours, the slick back gel ponytail, the ever so tweed jackets or skirts/trousers worn with retro trainers.

What I Wore Today!

My look is a very casual, brought from the high street stores and worn to university. Living the student lifestyle I have to budget my spending, unfortunately including clothing (which is very difficult for me and my wardrobe!) so I try to throw and mix different looks together daily on a student budget! My life consists of three options: Jack Daniels, cigarettes, clothing or pop noodles. And unfortunately I will sacrifice my pop noodle for those killer pair of pumps!

I personally wouldn’t say that I am your typical girly girl, at least one item of my clothing has to be black but I do take much pride in my bright 80's themed popping nails- I simply have to have my nails maintained! Especially with the trending midi rings and ring sets, popping nails always add that little bit more attention to your hands! 

My inspiration as a child was Wednesday from the Adams family, with my black hair braided and constant gloom outlook on life I believe that took a nock on effect on my outfits today! No matter what I wear there will always be a hint of Wednesdays dark and gloom look. 

Hope youve all enjoyed this marvellous sunshine!
