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.

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. 
 Sequinned colour shirt: H&M Black long-sleeved tshirt: Primark Belt: F21 Stone washed jeans: H&M Burgundy toms: Office Knitted Beigecape: Primark Earings:Miss Selfridges / Necklace: DaintyRoses
As you can see I decided to go with a 'natural look' makeup as my outfit was quite casual, and I brushed one side of my hair round to the side to create a side swoop look. As it was a casual event i didn't want to other do my look so this was the results.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend
