I’m not usually the greatest at picking up new music, and I’m definitely a stick-with-my-classic-faves kinda person, but Ciara is one of those artists whose albums I bought on CD (anyone remember those?) and I was a big fan so I am so glad to see she’s back making music.
Ciara is looking amazing in this video and I’m definitely inspired by her two makeup looks, her ombré hair (I don’t want this trend to end, it suits everyone) and her 90s inspired track pants and vest combo.
Things have been a bit quiet on the blog of late, sorry! I’ve been super busy, moving for the 298313th time since I arrived here in Chile, as well as enjoying life quite a bit! I’ll be trying to post some of the stuff I’ve done soon, so please keep the faith
This morning I got the most amazing email. My favourite denim brand Levi’s have finally released their collaboration collection with the vintage fabric powerhouse that is Liberty of London.
You’d have to have been living under a rock not to have noticed the latest sport luxe trend that the world is going crazy for.
Love them or hate them, I’m afraid that you will have to accept that the trend of wedge heeled sneakers seems to be here to stay. I’m not usually one to follow celebrity fashion, but from Dakota Fanning to Beyonce have been seen rocking Isabel Marant Willow’s since they launched last spring, and as dubious as I may have been about the longevity of this trend, I can’t deny that I do quite like them.

I’m making a little trip up to the most arid desert on Earth. This is what I have in my backpack!
Everything is high in SPF but the colour palette is pretty neutral, so I can mix things up a bit. I love the Mythical eyeshadow in particular because its really buildable, and can take me from pretty day to bright, shimmery night in a few swipes of the brush! (Sorry my brushes aren’t pristine in this photo!)
I’ve always been a bit funny with mascara, and must admit it’s never been one of my favourite beauty items. It was one of the last makeup products I started wearing; I’d only ever use it for special occasions because I hated that it was so difficult to budge, and I always seemed to be losing lashes in the process of taking it off. I even went through a phase of just wearing false lashes instead! (yup, even in the day time… it didn’t last long)
Mascara is also a pretty complicated product to buy and try out. Everybody uses a different one and has a different method, not to mention its countless brush/comb, plastic/fibre, curling/lengthening/volumizing combos… It’s all a bit of a palava and then you still have to decide whether you want black, very black or whatever new black there is this time round!

I wanted to tip my hat (top o’the morning to ya!) to tomorrow’s holiday without going totally overboard with green nails, as I’d already painted my nails green the last time I did them, so I decided to just have an accent nail.
It was only meant to be a simple little gem thingy, so I thought I could freestyle it – who the heck did I think I was? I haven’t played much with nail gems recently so it took a bit of getting used to again, and I’ll admit I did scratch them all off and do it over (blame the perfectionist in me). Continue reading →
