Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet – La Diva #44

Wednesday 21st January 2015

I welcome you to ‘La Diva’ a Rouge Allure Velvet lipstick by Chanel, an intensely pigmented, bold fuchsia pink with cool undertones. Application is soft and smooth drying to the perfect hydrating matte finish. Just the right alternative to shine. A true velvet lipstick with a pretty intense finish; it’s special formula doesn’t feel too drying on the lips and feels amazingly comfortable to wear – no heavy clumpy texture. What I really like about La Diva is it’s amazing staying power; one swipe is all that is needed to achieve full opaque colour which lasts for hours! I find I normally get between 3 – 5 hours wear before this beautiful colour begins to fade into a gorgeous pink stain, at this point I reapply to achieve full colour intensity. I’m really fond of how La Diva brightens my whole complexion and makes my lips come to life – a totally statement worthy, lip colour.

As far as packaging is concerned, Chanel is pretty hard to beat. The tube is classy, elegant and ever so timeless. I adore the signature gold interlocking C’s on top, this iconic image is the definition of Chanel and always makes me feel extra stylish when I see it. La Diva is the brightest pink that I own and is truly a unique member of my lipstick collection. This is a staple of my lipstick collection and I will definitely be replacing La Diva when it runs out.

I have tried numerous lipsticks but have never come across one as beautiful and bright as La Diva! The quality of lip colour is outstanding and in my opinion would be hard to duplicate, I can not recommend it enough! La Diva is one of the best lipsticks I have ever tried and is fully worth the £26 price tag, even though it seems expensive, it’s Chanel and get exactly what you pay for! Amazing colour and amazing quality that lasts.

Stepping out in Tartan

Tuesday 20th January 2015

Ok, it’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Tartan. I simply adore this traditional Scottish print and just how wonderfully stylish it is! I think it’s the striking mix of colours blending together that I love. I discovered the cute, red, skirt in today’s OOTD in my local charity shop for only £3! Being bang on trend and ever so pretty I couldn’t leave it behind! I was so excited to get it home and try it on! This stylish skirt was originally from New Look. I missed out on it first time round so was quite pleased to discover it in my favourite thrifty store! It must have been waiting for me ;). Unfortunately this gorgeous skirt can’t be purchased from New Look anymore but I have found a very similar version that is available from ASOS which is just as nice! I’ve popped the link for you below so you can check it out 🙂

I am very much enjoying wearing high-neck tops this winter and I decided a black Primark version would look perfect tucked into my red tartan skater skirt. I adore the colour contrast between the red and black! Costing just £5 this fashionable top has been a great addition to my winter wardrobe. I like the cosy fit and trendy look of these fashionable tops. In fact I like this top so much I had to pop back to Primark and buy the grey and cream version too! I can’t wait to wear them! I really can’t resist a good Primark bargain ;).

A Monochrome Mix

Saturday 17th January 2015

Good evening lovely friends and a very happy Saturday to you all! I hope that you have had a nice week and that you have a wonderful weekend! Have you got anything nice planned?

Oh my, I love shopping in the sales, hunting for stylish bargains among fellow fashionistas, it’s the best! I love finding that one-off item you have been lusting after for months at a fraction of the original price! Talking about sale shopping, how amazing is the Topshop sale?! I discovered the monochrome striped dress that I am wearing in today’s OOTD reduced from £32 to just £15 which is less than half price, talk about a great fashion find! I’ve had my eye on it for a while, and was so excited to find it had entered into the sale! This gorgeous dress is true to size, super flattering and undeniably stylish! The skater style is a timeless classic and ever so fashionable. The material is lovely and thick which makes this dress perfect for winter! What I really like is the beautiful monochrome colouring; it’s such a bold and striking combination which is always in fashion! I strongly recommend this dress to all my lovely fashion followers especially while it’s been reduced to £15 – grab it while you can!

How cute is my black Cambridge Satchel? I absolutely love it! Gifted to me for Christmas, I’ve not been able to stop using it since. I just had to select it as the perfect accessory to compliment today’s monochrome outfit. Let me tell you, the leather is to die for; it feels so soft and smells absolutely gorgeous! This beautiful handbag is just right for carrying all my daily essentials while being fashionable at the same time. I can’t wait to style it with many more outfits.

Parfum De L’Amour

Wednesday 14th January 2015

Hello there fashionistas and how are you on this Wednesday evening? I hope you are all well and having a wonderful week so far!

If you follow me on Instagram you may recognise the slogan top that I am wearing in today’s OOTD! I shared a quick pic of this trendy garment last week after discovering it in H&M! Priced up at £5.99 and being a fan of the slogan trend I just had to add this fashionable item to my winter wardrobe! I adore the monochrome colouring, it’s so striking and the best thing is, it’s always in fashion. This lovely top is true to size, comfortable to wear and feels amazingly stylish, I can’t recommend it enough! What I really like is the slightly cropped design, which is just right for wearing with a skirt. This lovely top is also available in other colours and designs, all as equally trendy! Don’t forget to check them out before they all sell out!

I’m in love with this faux leather look mini I am wearing in today’s post, it’s just so versatile and super flattering. I particularly like the silver zips on the sides too, they make the skirt more interesting than your average plain black version. This skirt is true to size and fits like a dream! Not too short or too tight – I absolutely love it! I’m so pleased I decided to buy it. This cute black skirt is my latest fashion obsession which I can’t wait to wear again. I hope that H&M make it in more colours :). This skirt matches the slogan top perfectly.

All About Burgundy

Monday 12th January 2015

Hi there fashion lovers and welcome to Monday’s outfit post!

High neck tops are just perfect for winter, I love how warm they feel while looking stylish at the same time! I discovered this gorgeous version in Topshop for £12. I instantly fell in love with the burgundy shade and high neck design. What I really like about this particular version is the long sleeves and slim, ribbed design, it’s so flattering and stylish! The ribbed style adds a perfect bit of detail to a plain top and adds a unique twist to a classic design. I really do adore high neck tops, being bang on trend and just right for winter, whats not to like! This fashionable top is also available in other shades from khaki green to wintery grey, all equally as nice! I’ve personally got my eyes on the grey ;).

You may recognise this floppy hat from a previous OOTD With today’s outfit having a burgundy theme I just had to wear it. This gorgeous hat has been a great addition to my winter wardrobe and I’m so pleased I decided to buy it! I can’t recommend it enough! It’s such a versatile accessory that makes any outfit instantly stylish. If you were after one for yourself, mine cost £8.99 from Select and is also available in black. I’ve left the link for you below if you’re interested 🙂
