Valentines Gift Inspirations

Valentines day is slowly approaching (if you cant already tell by how every pink and red product shops own are suddenly pushed right to the front of the store). I wont lie to you I am not a massive fan of over priced chocolates but I do have a soft spot for a cute heart motif or some flirty lace. If you want avoid red maybe try soft pinks and rose gold. If you really are not into the stereotypical valentines colours and want to have an edge try purples. So here are my top seven (sorry for the very random number) of romantic (ish) treats for Valentines. And if in doubt buy Chanel...

                                                    Topshop Bra £14.00
                                                    River Island Heart Sweets £4.00

                                                    Asos Gloves £18.00

                                                    Chanel Luminous Eye Shadow

                                                    Topshop Love Tube Skirt £22.00

                                                    Topshop Ring Part Of Set Of 4 £7.50

21st Birthday Celebrations

A while back it was my boyfriends birthday and to celebrate we all went for a meal at The Kings in Christchurch and stayed in the hotel for the night. The food and room were gorgeous, it really was a perfect day. For the meal I wore a navy dress from with cut out shoulders and my Alexander McQueen scarf. Make-up was kept minimal with a slight smokey eye.

Beauty Wish List

With snow days and having to get back into a routine if doing university work I haven't had much time do any shopping. One of my new year resolutions was to buy quality instead of quantity. So I am currently trying to save up and buy things I truly want and not simply buy for the sake of shopping. Here is my current beauty wish list, the ten face mask and urban decay eye primer potions will hopefully be my need of month treat....

                                                    Bumble & Bumble Seaweed Conditioner £17.00

                                                    Ren Radiance Renewal Mash £30.00

                                                   Benefit Hervana Blusher £23.50

                                                   Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer £14.50

Outfit Inspiration

Slightly different post to usual but with my new addiction to pinterest I have been lusting after so many things. So I have decided to create a few little outfit inspiration posts of just things I like really. This first one is the right mixture of casual but with statement accessories to keep it smart and unique. I am desperate to get my hands on leather pants but I live in fear of pulling "a Ross from friends." and getting stuck in them. McQueen and Westwood and my two favourite designers so they just had to be included. I like outfits to have a slight clash to them but not in an outlandish way, so using shoes to clash against your outfit is a nice way to try out the trend. I think the pastel metallic sandals add a summery spirit to the look....

                                                         Bag: Vivienne Westwood

                                                         Top: Vivienne Westwood

                                                         Trousers: Topshop

                                                         Ring: Alexander McQueen

                                                         Shoes: Jeffery Campbell

Chanel's Little Black Jacket

Quite a while back I went to the Saatchi Gallery to see The Little Black Jacket exhibition. I went in order to research for a uni photography project. Obviously you can never EVER go wrong with Chanel so thoroughly enjoyed looking at all the images. I loved the concept of showing the different ways you can interpret and wear a jacket which is also a nice fresh spin on the 'little black dress'. The many muses varied from actresses, models and singers however the makeup and styling made some of them almost recognisable showing a lot of creativity.

My favourite thing though has to be receiving a large free poster that me and my friend queued for (only for around 15 minutes) for men dressed in suit to inform us "here is a present from Karl".... "Er wow, Ok tell him I say Cheers!"...What a thoughtful guy, just another thing to add to the list of reasons why we love Lagerfeld. 

We got to choose from 3 images, my chosen one is now framed and hanging up in my room ( see christmas post). Here are a few of my favourite photos including Alexa Chung, Elle Fanning and Leigh Lezark....
