Company Style Blogger Awards 2013

I have been nominated for 2 awards, Best personal style blog - newcomer, and also Best fashion blog - newcomer! 
It would be great if you could also nominate me for either of these awards as well. My blog has only been going for a few months but I am really happy with where it is going at the moment! I know there have not been that many posts in the last month as I have had so much work to do for uni, but now I have started to hand it all in I have more time to be able to blog. 

You can nominate me here and it would really mean so much!

Colour Blocking

Bold, block colours are one of the biggest trends from the SS 13 catwalk! This is a great trend to spice up your style, plus it is easy to fit into your existing wardrobe.
This is also one that can be hard to style if you are not sure what you are doing, so below are some styling tips on how to work this trend.

1. Team it with denim!
Take a brightly coloured pair of trousers and put them with a light blue denim shirt and neutral shoes.

Shirt - Miss Selfridge
Jeans - H&M
Shoes - New Look

2. Clash your Colours!
Make a statement by wearing simular hue on hue on hue. To create this look all you need to do is pick a shade and wear it head to toe in different shades.

3. Use with Pastels
You can toughen up pale shades by teaming them with dark wintery shades. The pink skirt contrasts the khaki shirt giving a new approach to this trend.

Shirt - New Look
Skirt - Topshop
Shoes - Asos

Below are some more products that i am loving!

So today I decided to go shopping and I ended up buying a lot of jewelry! You don't always realize how much you are going to spend as individually everything was actually quite cheap, but the cost soon adds up... I actually prefer buying jewelry than clothes sometimes as I find that a new necklace or bracelet is all you need to spice up an old outfit.

So today i thought i would do a makeup post and when it comes to makeup i'm a bit of a Benefit addict.
I find that the Benefit products are better for my skin as it has improved since i started using their foundation and concealer, i also love their lip tints and lipsticks!
 I use Max Factor liquid foundation as a base, Benefit concealer and Benefit powder to set it. For a blusher I actually use Mac eye-shadow and it works well both ways. The eyeliner and mascara are both Maybelline.

In this photo i'm wearing Urban Decay electric blue eye liner, I know its kind of hard to see but i'm also wearing a light blue eye shadow.

In these photos I used L'Oreal Super Liner with Mac eye shadow over the top. The glitter in the eye shadow actually gets everywhere so when using this it is best to do the eye makeup before you put on foundation.

Okay, so i'm not sure why I did this but i felt like being a bit random and creating a look that I could possibly use in one of the many projects i'm doing at uni. I got the idea of doing a 'smudged' look from the 2013 Chanel Couture runway makeup.
And yes... this was a pain to wash off!


I have a reasonable amount of lipstick, but i do find that i have 2 or 3 favorites that i wear all the time! The blue gloss is also a Benefit product called 'California Kissin'' it is a gloss that you put on top of a lipstick to give it a bit of shine and it is probably one of my favorite products at the moment! I wear it a lot over the dark red Rimmel lipstick as I find that that lipstick dries my lips when I use it on its own.
