My 2013 Favourites

Hey Doll's,
Can You believe 2013 has gone by so quickly. I hope everyone had a great year. So as were going into 2014 I decided to do a 2013 Favourites post. So this was a very hard list to make as I didnt want to make the post to long so I separated it into categories, So here are my top 8 Favourites of 2013. 

1) My favourite shoes

This would easily have to be my Curved wedged heels.

They are super comfortable which allows me to wear them all day . They're are bold shaped and I love the colour which can help bring a little 'Flavour' and 'style' to an otherwise boring outfit.

You can check out previous post with my baba's here:  NewShoes & OOTD

2) My favourite Hair Product
this would have to be my John Frieda Frizz ease.

I Love, love, love this product it does exactly what it says on the bottle. It moisturise's, add's shine and lust, and most importantly leaves my hair felling soft and frizz free. Also it may seem like a small tub but believe me a little goes a very long way. Defiantly a 10/10 in my books.

You can check out my full review here: John Frieda FRIZZ-EASE

 3) My Favourite Accessory
would be my Black and white aztec hairband.

It can adds a bit of texture to any hairstyle (and camouflage a bad hair day x_x lol). Also as it is black and white it goes with most outfits and the aztec print can help bring an outfit together.

Previous post with my hairband can be seen here: WinterLook book & Braid hairstyles

4) My favourite Piece of Makeup
Without a doubt mascara wins.

I couldn't choose between these two piece but there both from Maybelleine so I can counted them as 1 cant I? lol. I love both of these as they help elongate and thicken my otherwise none existent eyelashes and there non-expensive which is a win win.  If I could only use one product Mascara would defiantly win, as I think It helps to widen the eyes and makes me look a lot more awake.

Full review here: Maybelline Review

5) My favourite none fashion/beauty related
Ok so my none beauty related thing would have to be my Mickey mouse head cushion.

I only got this recently as a gift on my birthday (28 Sept), and it made the list. Maybe I'm a bit bias as I love all things disney put this hands down is the cutest cushion I have ever seen. and its super soft and comfy to hug or lean on when watching a film.
6) My Favourite Nail Tool 
 So I could decide on a favourite nail varnish brand or shade so instead I have picked my nail Enamel dryer.

I love this product It helps my nails dry a lot quicker so I'm not having to sit around hopelessly waiting like I used to before I knew this existed. I've had this quite a long while now so it does last very long and it was very inexpensive at £1 a bottle.

7) My Favourite Perfume 
This would have to be my Rihanna Reb'l Fluer.

I love the smell it's has a gorgeous, sexy, and very feminine scent, which I always get complimented on when wearing it. It is also very light and not to overpowering. I also love the bottle design and it looks lovely on my dressing table. 

The bottle even inspired an NOTD, Check it out here: Reb'l Fluer NOTD
8) Overall Beauty Pruduct 
Pure Natural Shea Butter

This thing does wonders, I've been using it in my hair and skin for the past year now and I have to say it does wonders. I know have noticeable smother skin, and its much softer. It has also helped clear up scars and blemishes. It has also helped make my hair feel stronger, softer, moisturised and a lot more manageable which i feel has helped with the hair growth and length I have gotten this year. This is why I love this product, I can't imagine not using it anymore.

So those are a list of my 8 Favourites of 2013 Has anyone else tried any of these? 

Let me know so of your favourites in the comments below.I hope everyone had a great 2013 and managed to find new pieces and products that they love and can continue using them over the year to come :).

Dinner with the girlies OOTD

Hey guys,
So this is a late Outfit post. I don't know why I didn't post it up yesterday. But better late then never I guess. So here goes.

This is my Outfit I wore out for a friendly little get together with some of my friends. (Which you may have already seen if your following on my instagram @MissKareen). I kept my look quite casual as we were just going TGI's for a early dinner and some cocktails. So this is what I ended up wearing.

Surprisingly it wasn't that cold considering it was the end of december, so I got away with just wearing my leopard print jacket and didn't really need a scarf or jumper underneath. I love red with leopard print I think they work well together, and I think it also helped to pulled my overall outfit together. 
Fondation:Marykay Timewise (bronze 5)/Blush:markwins (Rose)/Brows: Beautiful Brows (Chocolate)/Eyeshadow: MUA:Heaven on earth Palette/Eyeliner:BarryM Bold black /Mascara:Maybelline Rocket Volume Express (Black)/Lipstick:Sleek matte (Barely There & Cherry)

Jacket: Dorothy Perkin/Red Trousers: F21/Grey Bodysuit: F21/Cut Out Boots: RiverIsland/Black&white earings: Newlook/Nails: NOTD

Please excuse the camera phone photography, sometimes it comes out decent and other times not so much x_x.

My Christmas NOTD

Heres a look at my Christmas NOTD, I decided to get a winter blue, and feel in love with this blue its very soft and girly and great for the season, I didn't get the name as I got them done in the shop but it was 'OPI', So hopefully I can find it, but It is similar to my Sea Foam varnish. I then got 1 glitter nail which I thought gave off a winter wonderland look. Perfect for Christmas :)

Hey guys,
Its been a while, But work is officially over yay!!!!!!!!!!!

I finally the christmas holidays :), So I had to catch up on my christmas presents shopping (I know I'm so last minute x_x). And while I was out I couldn't resist but buying myself some new shoes :).
I talked about these cut out boots before in my 'What I'm Loving' post. And luckly I found these beaut's in River Island and they were on sale from £45 - £35, so I couldn't resist. They come up really big so I got a size down to what I usually wear, but they are super comfy and spacious. 

What do you guys think?

Poetry Night OOTD

Todays post is just a quick OOTD, this is what I wore friday evening to a Poetry night hosted by  Lost for Words. which was a great night out, the poets were amazing there was a great vibe and it was great catching up with old friends over some cocktails after a long week at work.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend

Who wore it best

Hey dolls
So this year, besides the midi dress, Cut Out dresses have been in fashion especially among the celebrities. Here are my 3 favourite celebrities rocking the style.

 Nicole Scherzinger                                          Beyonce Knowle                                         Halle berry

Nicole Scherzinger defiantly gave the look a glamourous, yet effortless feel. I love how she dressed it up in the all black dress and blue heels in the first pick but still looked amazing in the casual strip printed cut out dress, with big glasses and hair braided back in the second.

Beyonce looks absolutely Amazing as usually. She looks so elegant, in the all white gown and then made a very casual floral dress look red carpet ready when paired with her snake print bag and floral heels.

And last of all we have Halle Berry, She rocked to totally different Black Cut out dresses, and gave them both a edgy, yet sophisticated  fell. And of course she looks Gorgeous as usual.

Who do you think wore it best

Sea Foam NOTD

So I walked pasted beauty bee today and as always I had to pop in and buy 1 of their Colour Craze polishes, I Mean there only £1 each how can I resist.

So the shade I got is 'Sea Foam' which is a pale blue turquoise sort of colour. I think it is a gorgeous shade and gives of a subtle yet vibrant pop of colour. I really like colour craze polishes as they very inexpensive and are long wearing without having to put on a top coat, although some shades dye your nails if you don't have a base oat on (which I learnt two weeks ago with a red shade).

I hope everyone is having a great november.

P.S - OMG this is my 200th post

2 Years blogoversary

Hi Beaut's

I can't believe it been two years since I first decided blogging. where has the time gone? I guess its true time flies when your having fun.
These past few years have been amazing, I've learnt a lot about fashion and beauty from reading other blogs and being a part of the 'blogging community', I feel as though this journey has made me a more opinionated person and has taught me how I can explore my personality through fashion, hair and makeup.

I'd like to thank everyone who reads my blog, as I am truly grateful.

I wish everyone a happy November, Take care

Cubit - Keeping your smart stylish and connected

Hi beauts

So I've recently found out about this great new product which will be launching soon and I thought it was to great not to share.

So its called a Cubit and it is a small wearable device that you can connect to your phone through bluetooth and it allows you to get direct notifications like text or emails. Which I thought was a great idea especially when your at work, with some friends or out for dinner as it allows your to keep your hands free of your phone and not look so antisocial with it constantly in your hand (which I am guilty of *hides face* lol)

They also come in a range of colours, they're easily wearable to your own style and preference and they have other great features such as custom LED Animation and a Range finder. You can find out more on there website here:

What do you guys think of this?

Fall/Winter inspired NOTD

So today as I looked out of my garden window I saw my first redish-autumn coloured leaf. Summers is officially over :(. But as I like to find the best in situations I decided to use it as an inspiration to create a Autumn NOTD. And the picture below show what I cam up with.

Right hand Detail
So I decided to use my Revlon Toffee Twist as my main colour and then I did a autumn tree design on my right pointy finger(Above) and a cluster of autumn coloured leaves on my left hand(below). I think this is the first time I have ever preferred my right to my left. (I've Been Practicing :D lol)

Left hand detail 

So these are the colours I used to create the designs
