OOTN: New Years Eve

6 Jan

Slightly belated but…. Happy New Year everyone!!

What did you do for New Years Eve? I’m always in two minds about it, as on one hand it feels like lots of pressure to have a great time (thus an anticlimax) but on the other hand it’s a great to catch up with friends and family.

This year I went to The Durell Arms in Fulham as a friend’s band were playing a gig there. It’s a pretty nice pub so check it out if you’re in the area.

They were having an End of the World themed night and I went with the concept of being an Alien taking over the planet…. and this was my OOTN:

Alien fancy dressMetallic sleeveless top: H&M

Sequin Cardigan: Topshop

Necklace: Topshop

Earrings: Warehouse

Necklace worn as headband: Market stall (had to hold it in place for the photo as it didn’t want to stay up by itself for it!)

I also wore black American Apparel disco pants and maroon doc martens but I took my photos in a rush on my way out of the house and the rest are a bit blurry.

What made this outfit was the make up… I felt kind of weird stepping on the train but as I got closer to Fulham (and people got more merry) I got more compliments from random strangers haha. I followed this tutorial: 

I’ve also announced the winner to the Beauty Box giveaway here (near the bottom of the post) so check it out if you entered!

Are you excited for 2013? I still keep typing 2012 everywhere! What would be your idea of a good end of the world outfit?

It’s time for another party…

10 Mar

Back in November, 17 Cosmetics held a seriously awesome Twitter party to celebrate the launch of their Magnetized Nail Polish. It was such good fun sharing make up tips and our favourite 17 products. This weekend the 17 Twitter Party returns for the launch of Peep Show Mascara… and you’re all invited!

To take part follow @official17 and look out for the hashtag #17cosmetics from 7-8pm on Twitter on Sunday 11th March.

And… every 10 minutes 17 will be giving away a goodie bag crammed full of fabulous 17 products to the best tweeters. Just include the hashtag #17cosmetics with every tweet you send for your chance to win! Make sure you’re following @official17 too so they’re able to send you a direct message if you win.

What are your favourite 17 products? I’m currently loving their Adapt-itude – Adapting Skin Match Foundation which I accidentally bought in Extra Fair but adapts to my skin tone perfectly (and I’d say I’m more of a medium)!

See you on Twitter at 7pm tomorrow!

Fashion Foie Gras for Coach

On Tuesday night I was lucky enough to attend Emily from Fashion Foie Gras‘ Coach Tote Launch.

The bag was created by Emily especially for bloggers and has literally every compartment a girl/blogger could ever need!

It was the lovely Lauren from Elle Croft who invited me along. We had no idea what to expect seeing as it was in store… but on arrival we realised that this party ticked ALL the boxes…

Champagne

Hot Waiters

A Fabulous Crowd - Can you spot me?!

There was also a seriously amazing photobooth which had a WIND MACHINE IN IT!!!

Myself, Lauren and Sarah from Sarah Betty got slightly carried away in the booth:

The party was so much fun, thanks to Emily for having us!
