Autumn 2012 - Must haves

Hey guy's

The weather we've been having in London lately has defiantly suggested that summer is over and Autumn is approaching. After attending London Fashion Weekend & Olympia Beauty Exhibition I have come up with the Autumn 2012 Must haves.

First of all Fashion
This season brings back layering aswell as the ever fashionable tailored look.
Studded pieces and leather have also carried on from summer, so add some of this season into the old.
Layered Clothes
Leather studed jacket

Then for the Hair
Protective styles, like updo's and Bun look cute. As well as big volumed hairstyle with loose curls are in this season.
Its just as important to seal the end's of your hair from the cold as in the sun, so make sure to use a good conditioner when hair is out.

Lots of Volume

And lastly this season Make-up 
This season is about red lips, Fluffy fuller eyebrows and metallic eyes
It's important to remember that our skin acts different in different tempretures so remember to Use the right moisturises to stop chapping over the colder seasons

There was so much amazing clothes and they were at such great prices. Unfortunately I couldn't find anything in my size (UK 10&12 always seem to go first) But I still had a great time. There was loads to see and do. I got a free massage, skincare consultation, toke pictures with coke, and got to listen to professionals aswell as watch this season's catwalk show.

I also got some goodies by benefits, with a goody bag giveaway from subscribing with Elle.

There was also a great talk called Kiss and makeup. This talked about, hair and makeup. the importance of looking after your skin and recommended products etc, It was very informative. Heres just a little bit of the great talk.

NOTD - Toffee Twist

Hey guy's

So here's my recent NOTD
I absolutely love it. Its the Toffee Twist by Revlon, that I got at TheNailShow during the polish swap.  It looks quite red in the picture but it comes out as a yummy red/toffee colour.

The polish itself is quite good as well, I got a great coverage with just 1 application, and the brush spreads out quite big so 1 or 2 strokes done fine.
      I haven't brought revlon nail varnish before, as I thought it was quite expensive, But I'm now in love with this brand and may be a new buyer :).

I hope everyone had a great week

Hey guys, 
So I went to Primark today to get some new PJ's as its getting colder at night nowadays :(, But unfortunately warm and cosy one's are not in stock yet. So while I was there I found myself looking around the jewellery section :). 
     I haven't got any jewellery from them recently as I haven't seen anything that interesting. But today was a little different and I came out with these few pieces. And I thought I'd show you lot what I got. 

1. Drop Chain Earrings - £3
2. Flower Stud Earrings - £2.50
3. Glasses Double-Ring - £2
4. Leopard print studs - £2

I've sure missed buying their Jewellery, I mean where else can you get such cute pieces for so cheap. its amazing.
       I love the ring, and as I have a double-ring fetish at the moment this was defo gonna be a buy.

What do you guy's think?

The Nail Show

Hey guys

So Last month on Saturday 18th August I went to ThenailShow in Shoreditch, which was their first event. I had previously applied and was given free tickets when I had gone to the Hair & Beauty Show earlier this year.
              So at this show they had a few different events on their was many stalls. Some had tutorials on nail designing, They showed us how to do acrylic nail, gel, hand nail designs, 3D designs and many more.Their was also a natural products stand, with hand and body creams. You colud get manicures and hand designs really cheap and many other different stalls, including a Cupcake stand. (Hhmmmmmm)

So while I was there I went to one of the nail designing work shops. You could pick what designs you wanted to practice, I choose to do flowers. So here's one of the attempts I did, with the help by @elize_nails
There was also a polish swap bar, were you would go and you could basically swap any nail polishes you had with others at the swap bar. I had a double of the glitter 1 so I didn't mind, and I hardly used the shade of pink so this was my swap
And a raffle, every hour. Which i actually won. :) I was given £35 voucher to spend at a hair salon in Wembley. Which I'm really pleased about. 

Some other designs at the show

Here is a short clip of some of the show. I didnt get much footage but it has some more designs from the show and me getting my Tribal nail designed by @EditStaceynow, You can see more of her designs here.

Since the spice girls has gone on to be an actress, TV personality, author, fitness spokes person whilst being a YUMMY MUMMY
I love her post spice girls style nowaday's, she can be very versitile and has a variety of looks, which she pulls off well. I love her style as it is very down to earth yet Glamourous at the same time.

Pinch Punch first of the month


Sorry for my long absent, I've been really busy working at the olympics for the last month and a half. I hope everyone has had a great summer and has been enjoying the games.

It was a truly great experience.
So while we was there we also got to meet broadcasters from other countries. As they all had pins to trade and give out it became a little competition to collect as much as possible lol. Here are most of mine, some are really cute.
I meet some amazing people, learnt a lot about how a big media production works, got a great paycheck :) and best of all got to be apart of a once in a lifetime experience. It is something I will never forget.

But I will now be back to blogging, I have missed it dearly. Thanks for sticking by :) I have some great posts lined up. Including my day at TheNailShow.
