The full Gareth Pugh for MAC collection

26 Oct

I’ll hold my hands up, I don’t normally buy into the MAC collaborations. Sure, some of them have looked fairly interesting but hey, it’s make up and I’m a fashion girl. I only half listened when they announced their collaboration with Gareth Pugh a few months ago but now that I’ve seen it, boy oh boy am I sitting up and paying attention! It’s a great collection with all of the darkness and edge you would expect from Pugh along with some more unexpected nude shades. The collection is pretty comprehensive too, comprising of cream shadows, beautiful lipglass’, lipsticks, powder, liners, angular false lashes and a make up bag. Inspired by butterfly wings and beetles, more than evident by the shades of the I-want-them-now iridescent nail lacquers. The collection is available from December, hello Christmas wish list!


Hot blue

29 Jun

I love Summer, I love sunshine. It does bring it’s challenges though, I always automatically hate everything in my wardrobe and wish I had more light, airy clothing. That’s why I teamed a dress I normally reserve for nights out with a pair of tiny denim hotpants (just in case there was a sudden gust of wind) for a day roaming around my favourite haunts in Soho.

Dress – Dorothy Perkins, Shoes – Matalan, Headbands – Spitalfields, Stupid expression – all my own
To be honest, the whole outfit was actually centered around me wanting to wear these floral headbands I bought in Spitalfields market a couple of months ago. I bought them on a rainy Sunday in the hopes of sunshine…I was rewarded for my optimism this past weekend. The blue one is my favourite but they look so cute together. I’m not sure if you can tell, but I had blue eyeliner on too, much more summery than black.
