Burberry have recently released a new line of lipsticks – ‘Burberry Kisses’. This specially designed range of gorgeous lip colours promise to achieve luminous, buildable colour whilst offering 6 hours of hydration. Altogether there are 28 shades in the collection ranging from bold bright reds to sweet pale pinks – something for everyone!
To celebrate the launch of their new lipstick line Burberry are offering complimentary samples with four stunning sample shades to choose from – 01 Nude Beige, 05 Nude Pink, 85 Sepia and lastly 109 Military Red. Of course being a red lipstick lover I just had to choose ‘Military Red’.
Military Red is a highly pigmented, true red. This gorgeous lip colour is vibrant, bold and totally statement worthy! Application is smooth and soft drying to the perfect finish, it’s creamy texture glides onto the lips with ease. Just two swipes is needed to achieve full opaque coverage! This beautiful red feels moisturising and weightless on the lips. It’s special hydrating formula keeps lips feeling nice and fresh. What I really like about Military Red is it’s fantastic staying power. This lovely red lasts for around 6 hours before needing to be reapplied (that’s including eating and drinking) how good is that?!!

Today’s outfit features one of my favourite combinations – black and white! This versatile colour mix looks great with everything and is so easy to style. Plus this bright and bold look is always in fashion and is always on trend.
Loving all things black and white I simply couldn’t resist this stylish stripy top from H&M! Just £5.00 in the sale it just had to come home with me :). The length is just right, this lovely top can either be tucked in skirts or worn outside like in today’s OOTD. The fine knit material is perfect for Spring and feels so soft!
If you follow me on Instagram.com/els_fashionfix you may recognise my gold necklace from one of my Instasnaps – another sale fashion find from H&M for £3.00 how amazing is that! I love the pretty layers and stylish gold colouring. This elegant necklace adds detail to my outfit whilst also providing a nice contrast of colour against the black and white, it also perfectly matches the gold hardware on my Michael Kors bag.

As I’m sure you all know last week I went on a lovely city break to Berlin! I had so much fun sightseeing and of course shopping! As a reminder of my time in Berlin I decided to treat myself to a special handbag from Michael Kors! From the iconic Selma Satchel to the signature Hamilton Tote, there were so many beautiful bags to choose from! After trying on numerous designs I finally settled on the Jet Set Cross-body Bag in the shade ‘Luggage’ (£130). I instantly fell in love with the stunning tan colour and gorgeous gold hardware, not forgetting the luxurious saffiano leather, plus the nice long shoulder strap.
I simply adore the overall look of this bag. It’s smart, sophisticated and of course super stylish – everything you’d expect from a Michael Kors handbag! Its large rectangular shape is such a fashionable design and the interior is very spacious. offering plenty of room to carry daily essentials with ease. This stylish number can hold my mobile phone, lipstick, compact, mascara, hair brush, keys and purse with even more room to spare! There are also three internal pockets which makes organising daily essentials a dream. The lining is cream with the MK logo embossed all over which I absolutely love!
