Dig Out That Old Tee..

1 Oct

H&M conscious

So it seems that while I was sleeping, the T-Shirt got fabulous.

Many would argue that everything in fashion has already been done and we are only recreating the old. I completely disagree. While we are not creating styles that define the decades are much as before, new themes are emerging. Having looked at the beautiful fashion weeks across the globe happening right now, the street style tells us that something is bubbling. Fashion is now a portrait of opposites. Everything from evening wear with trainers( so very Lily Allen), to a silk lingerie slip dress and a tuxedo jacket.

I have to admit that I have never really been a T-Shirt person. However, I stumbled into a H&M store a month or two ago and fell in love! H&M’S ‘Conscious’ collection celebrates ethical and social responsible clothing. All of that aside, I bought mine primarily because the T-shirt had a ‘C’ on it….C is for Chioma instead ūüėČ Excuse the bad lighting/Iphone situation…

So in the spirit of trend loving, I have thrown in a plaid skirt, T-Shirt and a couple of other bits and bobs. I hope this inspires you as much as it has me eagerly budgeting my way around these pieces….

Beauty: Mac Ruby Woo Review

21 Aug

When I was younger I got the impression that all elegant ladies wore lipsticks, heels and trench coats. Hence I decided that when I got older and more mature I would get my first lipstick and it had to be red. I did get a red lipstick but not much maturity.

Mac ‘s ‘Ruby Woo’.This is one of those products that EVERY blogger , Tom, Dick and Harry has! I am a bit of a rebel and bore in mind that I already had one red lipstick from Clinique. It had a glossy finish so resembled a very highly pigmented lipgloss. A little bit of a cop out but a great starter for my 19 year old mind. I didn’t see the need to get another red lipstick. ¬†However, after giving the lipstick away I was left with a void. Having looked high and low I realised it ws time to face my fear and go for a matte colour. Looking for a blue toned red was suprisingly difficult and I now understand why ‘Ruby Woo’ is such a favourite.

It suits so many skin tones and has incredibly colour pay off!¬†¬†I made up my mind to pick up one while I was in New York City as a little treat ūüôā

My only issue with this lipstick is that while it has great staying power it transfers and bleeds quite a lot. For me, I couldn’t wear it without lip liner, and everything my lips brushed on got some red action! I’m all up for making a lasting impression but I was kinda careful about the angles and physics of my hugs ha! I don’t wear a full face of a make up crazy often. I am not used to it so you have to factor that in. All in all I am crazy about the colour, I can figure out a lip primer later….
