A Look at some of the A/W 14 Fashion Trends

Friday, 12 September 2014


I know that everyone is now talking about what the trends are for S/S 15, but for us everyday people who don't work in the fashion industry, we are still concentrating on the current A/W 14 trends.

Red



Red is a great colour for Autumn and Winter as it's a sophisticated colour that completely reminds you of this time of year with it being the key colour of Christmas and all (yep I said the word already). Dark red shades are the main focus of this trend. Blood red, or more vampy red shades are mainly shown in these photos, with the exception of the lighter dress worn in the middle of the second photo. Personally I'm not a big fan of dark, vampy shades, or even dark reds for that matter as I usually gravitate towards more orange red shades, but I will try to give this trend a go by probably wearing a red top. I'm not confident to wear an all red outfit just yet.

60s



This is my favourite trend of the lot. I loooove the 60s style. If you're like me and you have an almost completely straight body with no curves, then this is the perfect silhouette for you to wear as most dresses are very A Lined in shape, so it compliments that kind of body shape. Obviously it doesn't matter what you look like you can wear whatever you want, but for me this look suits my shape.I adore the shift dresses, the high leg boots and the lady like bags that are shown here. It's just as very pretty and girly look. As you can see from above you can mix this style with anything, from monocrome to pastels, geometric shapes to metallics, you can really broaden your look.

Folk



This is a hippy but girly look that has an element of 70s style to it. With floaty fabrics and really pretty woodland and floral designs, this look is very apt for the ever changing look of nature that goes on during this time of year. I love the clash of textures that are going on here, with thinner materials for the dresses, but more heavier materials for the cover ups , like the short black coat and the long grey cardi that resembles the shape of a kimono, which we all know was ridiculously popular in the summer. It's a very romantic look. Plus these clothes look very comfy to wear whilst being very stylish at the same time.

That's A Tune #11

Wednesday, 10 September 2014




I've been listening to a lot of Janet Jackson songs recently, but I couldn't pick just one song to tell you about, so I decided to show you a mega mix that I found of her songs. When you type in 'Janet Jackson Megamix' loads of results come up, but this is definitely the best one to listen to, it's brilliant! I love Janet's sound. Her music is a mixture of dance R&B songs and slow, more soul like love songs. Check out this megamix, you'll love it and even if you don't know many of her songs, you will get a flavour of a few of them by watching this video.

I hope you enjoyed this post :)

Black and Gold eye look

Tuesday, 9 September 2014


I just wanted to do this little post to show you what eye makeup I was wearing yesterday. I love the colour combination of black and gold. The two colours just compliment each other so well and they really bring out your eyes. I decided to use the L'Oreal Infalliable Eyeshadow in Sahara Treasure for the gold colour and for the black liquid eye liner I went for my favourite L'Oreal Super Liner Perfect Slim as it's so pigmented and it's easy to create a really thin line very close to the lash line which is perfect for an everyday look. Plus it lasts all day as well. I then finished the look off with the Maybelline The Falsies Black Drama Mascara as it's simply amazing because it does the job of adding length and volume to your lashes. If you want to read more about this mascara I did a review of it here.


This is what it looks like. I think it's a great everyday colourful eye look that's very quick and easy to do. Of course if you want to pack more colour on you can as this eye shadow is very pigmented once you build up the colour.

I hope you enjoyed reading this.

Tanya Burr Lip Gloss review

Sunday, 7 September 2014


Yes I know I have a bit of a problem with buying lip products, I have an ever growing collection of them, but I had to finally buy a Tanya Burr lip gloss as I have heard that they are amazing. I'm not just saying this because I'm a huge fan of Tanya, but these lip glosses are honestly the best lip glosses I've ever used. Ever! I have the shade 'Aurora', a beautiful candy pink colour and I can't stop wearing it as it's a very practical colour that goes with any makeup look as it's suited for day and night.

 
You can see it has the typical sponge like applicator, accept this one is completely flat on both sides which makes applying the lip gloss easier to do as it pacts more colour onto the applicator, so it takes you less time to cover your whole lips. One of the reasons why this has to be the best lip gloss is that the pigmentation is OUTSTANDING. It packs as much colour on your lips as a slightly sheer lipstick does, which for a gloss is pretty impressive if I say so myself. Also the longevity is brilliant. This gloss stays on your lips for hours. About 4-5 hours at least, and even after the glossy shine disappears, I noticed that the colour leaves a slight stain on your lips, probably because of how pigmented it is. I highly recommend you buy at least one of her lip glosses. There are loads of colours to choose from and I know I will have to get more. I'm definitely eyeing up 'Picnic In The Park' as I'm looking for a bright pink lip gloss to replace one that I've now used up.


What it looks like on the lips.

I really hope you enjoyed this review. I love wearing this lip gloss so much. Maybe it will end up in a September Favourites later this month. :)

That's A Tune #10

Wednesday, 3 September 2014

Yep this looks like wavy lines, but this is actually an album cover that has a song on it that I loved last year and this year I rediscovered it. This is the album cover for the Pet Shop Boys album 'Electric' and the song that I rediscovered is 'Thursday' featuring Example. I love the Pet Shop Boys. Every decade they come out with a new album and their newer songs always sound as great as their old songs did when their earlier albums came out in the 1980s. This is such a great modern, electronic dance song that really makes you wish it was the weekend already. Also the fact that Example is on the track makes it sound even better. Plus it's quite catchy too.



I hope you liked this post!

Maybelline Baby Lips Electro review

Monday, 1 September 2014


When I heard that Maybelline were bringing out more shades from their Baby Lips range I had to go and check them out. This new collection is called Baby Lips Electro as these new shades are meant to give you more colour than the original lip balms and that's exactly what they do. I wanted to buy one of the pink shades first before I tried any of the other shades, so I bought the shade Strike A Rose which is like a magenta pink. It's quite bright for a lip balm. Actually it's very bright for a typical tinted lip balm, but that's why I love the whole Baby Lips range as they really do give you a pop of colour to your lips. The application is really easy, it doesn't emphasise any dry patches that might be on your lips and it lasts quite well for a lip balm. This is the perfect shade if you want to start experimenting with brighter shades, but you don't want to buy a lipstick or a lip gloss just yet. Most importantly it really does moisturise your lips very well, so you are left with soft looking (and feeling) lips. Did I mention it's only £2.99?. No, well it is, so it's a bargin too!


I liked the packaging that it came in, so I had to take a photo haha.


On my lips (excuse the pesky spot on the left hahaha).


And this is what it looks like from slightly further away. Yes my hair is not perfectly straight, but hair can't be perfectly groomed all of the time.

I really hope you enjoyed this review :) Let me know what you think of these new Baby Lips Lip Balms.

A great affordable eyeshadow primer- e.l.f eyelid primer review

Thursday, 28 August 2014


I was on the look out for a cheap eyeshadow primer for a while, then luckily I found one from e.l.f cosmetics. The e.l.f Eyelid Primer is such a great eye primer as it really does keep your eyeshadow on for for a long time without any creasing or transfer of eye makeup. The product packaging is designed like a liquid concealer and the primer is applied the same way as it has one of those pointy applicators which makes it really quick and easy to apply. It also dries so quickly too, you only have to leave it for a minute, then you can apply your eye shadow. This is in the shade Sheer which is the neutral colour out of the range and I think it's the best one to get as it's the most versatile colour out of the lot as it can be used under any eyeshadow. Also I need to mention how incredibly affordable it is. It's £1.50!! £1.50, I actually couldn't believe it, especially as products that are usually that cheap do not perform well, but this product performs exceptionally well.

I really hope you enjoyed this review.
