I’ve always loved Breton stripes, and wanted to freshen up the look with some cool leather or a statement jacket. I love this orange/coral colour and it would look great with loose curls, dark lashes and a lunch date.
Ever wanted to perfect that hair style but can’t be bothered spending hours practising? Want gorgeous smokey eyes, but always end up with smudged, black circles? Well, ‘The Hacks’ series is here to help, with tips and tricks on everyday beauty topics, fashion advice and fitness know how.
Got a tip you want to share, or a question you need answering?
Want to get rid of mascara? Get in the shower, and gently rub a pea size amount of conditioner over closed eyelids and lashes. Keeping your eyes closed, rinse off for at least 60 seconds. Your lashes will be clean, healthy and mascara free!
Embrace this seasons pastel trend. Just add a some white nail varnish to your nails first to make sure the pale shades really stand out
Hair feeling a bit dry? Shower before bed and apply conditioner as normal, but wrap your wet hair in a small towel, and don’t wash out. The next morning, wash your hair and steer away from intense hear styling. Your hair will feel so soft, and you don’t have to invest in an expensive hair mask!
Late night? Match your skin tone to your eyeliner to help make you appear bright eyed and bushy tailed. Curling your lashes is a great idea too.
New pair of shoes?Stick on a pair of socks, add your heels and apply heat from your hairdryer to anywhere you’re likely to get a blister. It will help to make them less pain free next time you wear them.
What tricks do you use when getting ready? Let me know below, or on Twitter!
It’s Friday night. I’m getting ready for a night out, and the first thing I always think about isn’t the hair. It’s not even the dress.
It has to be the shoes.
Gorgeous heels, perfect ballet flats, even sparkly gladiator sandals. They don’t have the match the outfit, but they do have to be amazing. Which is why, when I was recently invited to the re-launch of Gianmarco Lorenzi, I was SO. EXCITED.
Located on South Molton street, Mayfair London, the launch quickly filled up with fashion bloggers and journalists from across the UK. A quick Google of the brand brings up artful designs worn by the likes of Nicki Minaj and Beyonce, and the pairs on display where no exception.
The latest Gianmarco Lorenzi collection appeared to be split in 3 different colour directions – Neons, Nudes and Sparkles – all of which complemented each other, design-wise.
There was something for every taste, heel hight and outfit. Take a look below at the collection, and let me know which are your favourites!
I’m having a bit of a love affair with fishtail designs at the minute.
When cut right they look amazing, and can accentuate curves perfectly. Below is an outfit I’m planning for a future night out, but I think the skirt could be added to a dark blouse and leather jacket for a day time look too.
