Since coming back from London, the low moods really hit me. I have to admit I miss the rush of London, the busy office and the thrill of partying a few nights a week. But lovely Nottinghamshire is just that… lovely. The boyfriend and I have been getting back into our routine and I’ve been kept busy copywriting for a client.

Since coming back, conversations have been turned to Paris and our beautiful trip on May 2nd to May 4th. My boyfriend and I are jumping on the Eurostar to Paris in several weeks for a few nights of champagne drinking, brie eating and general tourist photo taking.

I’ve been researching some brands to splurge my birthday Euros on. I want tank tops from Sandro, a bag from Vanessa Bruno and Breton stripes from APC. Of course, we’ll be taking a trip to Sephora where I can go wild and stock up on red lipstick, mineral foundations and floral creams. I cannot wait!

What are your tips for shopping in Paris? Any brands I should be aware of? Do you have a favourite French beauty product? I’m dying to know!

Clippity Clog!

8 Apr

Ever since Alexa Chung wore her Chanel clogs on the FROW, we’ve been inundated with news that clogs are back. But they’re certainly a love/hate thing and I know which side I’m on! I just wouldn’t have a clue what to wear them with and I’d probably end up looking like some 90s reject! Perhaps you clog lovers can enlighten me on how to keep the look classic and cool? Because I certainly don’t get it right now…

But I figured those of you who do love them and could easily work them in a super-stylish way would be interested to know about this pair from Linzi which come in black or tan.  At only £25, these clogs will be available from the end of April. Chanel style without the price tag!


Ruffle ruffle!

17 Mar

Are you lot over the pink/nude/pretty-pretty trend yet? I know I’m certainly not and it’s reasons like this Lipsy ruffle skirt that keep drawing me back to the whole overtly feminine look time and time again. I can’t believe this skirt is only £40, it certainly looks like it’s just come off the Chanel or Giambattista Valli catwalk!

By night I’d go for simple blacks and some super shiny platforms but I reckon you could pull this look off with some pretty Grecian style sandals and a beaten up denim jacket for more summery days.

It’s all about MEMEME.

9 Nov

Mememe is the cosmetic range available exclusively at Superdrug and, if you’re anything like me, you’ll want to snap up their whole range! Whether you’re looking for lipsticks and foundations in classic shades or daring eyeshadows, this brand has it all and has small prices to boot.

My favourite product from the range is the Colourama cream eyeshadows. The Chanel inspired long-lasting eyeshadow boasts an eight-hour staying power, although I do think it lasts a lot longer than this. The great thing about the handbag friendly sized eyeshadows is that you can dictate it’s instensity- a light sweep of the brush will create a subtle day look or build up the colour for a glam evening out.

Mememe’s make-up artist Kieron Bradshaw comments: “Colourama is the perfect product for day-to-night wear and with its long-stay formula, you’ll be confident it won’t budge”.

Colourama by Mememe comes in five shades which I’ve listed below. At £5.49, they’re the perfect lunch break treat and guarantee full on glamour.

Sparking Silver- hit the dance floor with this sparkling metallic shade.

Azure Blue- for an injection of colour.

Molten Brown- great for day-to-night glam.

Liquid Bronze- think metallic and Grecian goddess!

Chiffon Rose- subtle and understated, perfect for day wear (I’m wearing this shade right now and it’s my new make-up bag must have!).

If you’re like me and have boxes upon boxes dedicated to every sort of accessory you could ever think of, then you’re going to love Talullah Tu.

They suit all tastes. Whether you’re a Chanel girl, a Dior addict or if you go mad for Marc, you’re certain to find something special and totally breathtaking.
