OOTD: Layered Up

3 Dec

So today is a layered up day… it’s got so cold in London town this is a necessity right now! I borrowed my Dad’s cashmere scarf which happens to be tartan (what a trendsetter!) and paired it with some double denim!double denimthai beaded necklacesvintage brown bootsface of the dayTartan Scarf : Dad’s!

Denim Shirt: Zara

American Flag Cross tee (worn under denim shirt): Primark

Navy Jamie Janes: Topshop

Wine Oversized Cardigan: H&M

Beaded Necklace: Bangkok Street Seller

Well worn tan boots: Lotus Hallmark

Lipstick: Crush by Sephora

Do you ever borrow your family’s clothing/accessories?! And what are you thoughts on double denim? I know it’s a bit of love/hate topic!


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!

Trendwatch: The Everyday Boot

22 Nov

That time of year has arrived, it’s time to put away the ballet flats and pull out the all weather boot. I’ve spent the last couple of weeks hunting down my perfect pair and seem to have found several alter egos which appear to come across through my four choices:

First there’s the Topshop Abe Ultimate Chelsea Boot (£65), for the casual yet fashionable girl about London town look. They are ever so comfy whilst being timeless and going with pretty much everything in my wardrobe.

How about the Dr Marten Pascal Boot in Shiraz (£90), appealing to my ever more apparent grungy side… how cool would these be with skinny jeans and my H&M parka jacket?

Then there’s sensible Urban Outfitters Tan Fur Lined Boot (£75), the tan colour goes with everything whilst looking a little quirky, and the fluffy interior is perfect for Winter walks (aka shopping sprees).

Lastly the Carvela Smoke Boot at a slightly pricier £180. I never quite got on the biker boot bandwagon and I feel this might be the time? The fur detail makes it apt for winter and the design is exactly what I’m looking for in a hardwearing boot, however I am thinking that perhaps the Biker boot has had it’s day now…

Which do you think I should get? Please leave me a comment and help me decide,
