The famous nude look, I am just in love with the maxmara coat since I saw Kim Kardashian wearing it and this was a while ago but was still on a hunt to find a high street dupe. I recently went to Barcelona in August and was browsing around in Zara like I always do and found this beautiful camel coat for 129 euros I was in love and kept trying it on in every store and on the third day just had to purchase it. If your wondering it is available in the Zara stores in the UK which is being sold for £169. I matched it with a nude low plunge jumpsuit and black ankle strap heels. It is the nude winter look because it is some comfortable and still classy and added the famous red lip look from MAC Ruby Woo and my red nails.

If you follow me on instagram or any other social networking you will know that I have recently become a big fan of colour on my lips. I was always very shy with it because I felt that my lips were too big and I looked like a clown, I recently went to Barcelona and decided that would be the time to test lip-liners and lipsticks to see what was best. In the space of 3 weeks I purchased MAC cherry lip-liner, MAC matte ruby woo lipstick, MAC retro matte all fired up, Flormar lip-liner no.217, no.201 and no.205. The colours are not very bright besides the red and there are some dark red/pink and a nude. It was all about mixing and seeing what works with each other on the day.
I had a few people ask what I used on my lips in the two photographs from my Instagram and it was either one lip-liner or a mix of two and a lipstick. I think the first image I used the MAC vino lip-liner which is a very dark and bold purple so if your going for that look then this is a perfect lip-liner to use. I love the matte look on my lips so I just use vaseline before I apply any lip product on but making sure it isn’t too glossy. It is also important to know the shape of your lip and this is why I think a lip-liner is easier to create an amazing lip look.
The second image i used the MAC nightmoth lip-liner and my MAC rebel lipstick so I went super dark on this look and my family were telling me I looked like a witch ha ha, because I had my maxmara hat on and I felt like just the part that morning. I have come a long way as I was a big fan of nude and clear lip-gloss for a while but your face changes and also when you have a new hairstyle sometimes your make up techniques change and it may be for the good or bad but at least it was worth a try. Check these ladies out on youtube because that is where I get inspiration for lip tutorials and colours on youtube sometimes (msroshposh and tymetheinfamous)

I am back but with a bang, so if you didn’t know I work at &otherstories it is an amazing place to work with some great pieces for the current season that is on. The store consists of many different looks that can go well for a lot of women, even some men are in the store shopping for the over-sized knitwear, bomber jackets and many more pieces. Lykee Li has just launched her collaboration collection with &otherstories that hit the stores on Thursday, she is a Swedish indie pop singer and writer. Check her website out and her YouTube channel to tune into her music and what she is about as well. I had never heard her music before but it gets played in store quite a lot and I am normally singing along and when someone pointed it out the other day I was like wow she’s really good.
Her style consists of a lot of black and her signature pieces that you will see her wearing on stage and off would be the blazer and the bell bottom trousers. As I mentioned there is a lot of black but there is a spot of tan/caramel that has been added as well. There are a lot of these pieces that can be dressed up or down by simply adding some jewellery or adding a bit of colour, the colours are also perfect for the season with the right pieces such as the cashmere high neck sweater and the over-sized tote bag. I have chosen my three favourite pieces from the collection and maybe it gives you an insight to what is currently in her collection. Make sure you pop into the store at Regent Street/Argyll Street, London or go onto the website to purchase some of the amazing pieces before its gone.
1 – Cashmere sweater £95
2 – Sliders £79
3- Camisole £55

I know you can’t see much besides the colours and prints but all will be worn in time so stay posted. Firstly is a navy blue dress that has a peplum at the bottom of the dress which is such a different and classy design only for 5 euros it will be so nice for a dinner out. The print tee from Zara priced at 3 euros is just something casual to snap up with some leggings or jeans if I am going to uni or a quick shop, it would really nice with a winter hat and scarf as well. This beautiful patterned blazer is one of my buys while I was on holiday as was originally 80 euros and went down to 19 euros, it is such a big bargain and an amazing statement piece to wear when going out for an event.
This knitty jumper on the far left was 49 EUROS from h+M expensive you think but Miss Desriee got it for 7 euros I was over the moon and was thinking how does my eyes attract such good pieces and bargains lol. It is a long knit jumper which so many holes but would look so cute with a cami dress underneath some big chunky jewellery and thigh knee boots. The floral summer coloured blazer is from Zara from the S/S 13′ collection who says you can’t style something like this winter and stand out. This was originally 75 euros and went down to 19 euros the same as the blue + white blazer, I just love my statement piece items a lot of people may be scared thinking you will have to wait to wear it a few months later but no no its not the case. I always make sure that I have complete different looks when wearing my statement piece items so just change it up with jewellery, hair or even just shoes alone. This gorgeous blouse from Lefties was on 3 euros and is just so cute and something simple to wear for an event most of these clothes are ha ha but it just had that versace look so had to purchase it with a click.
The white pieces, white is something that celebrities, stylists, fashion lovers have been crazy off their heads about this year and I had to add to my collection with this cute bohemian dress from Zara that my mummy actually picked out its so girly in a different way which is not me but I did end up liking it funnily enough it was priced at 12 euros. The two jumpers do look alike but one is very oversized and big the other is a cropped jumper with a bow at the back with the skin showing off which I thought would be nice for winter with a white vest underneath.Thats the end of my clothing purchases I hope you liked what I bought and if you have any questions just comment below xo

I am back in London and I actually missed the rain funny enough, think the sunshine was a bit too much ha ha. I have come back with a few snaps of the bikinis that I wore on holiday.
The first bikini set ” Blue Jewels” thats what I named it, the bikini top is from H+M priced at £7 as soon as I saw it I had to purchase it I just love the embelishment detail so much. The bottoms are from a store in Madrid that I got a few years back.I felt really comfortable with the top but the bottoms aren’t my favourite as I prefer high waisted bottoms. ( 7/10 )
The second is the monkini that was only 3 euros from 24 euros in some random store at the Bonaire Outlet and was very bright especially for me as I love bold colours but the design of the monkini was brilliant as it is well shaped for all body shapes, it has two strings at the back also for you to tie if you want to suck in a bit it definitely made me feel as if I had a bit of shape. ( 8/10 )
The last bikini was my all time favourite which is from the UK store Urban Outfitters which have so many quirky items that are so fashionable make sure you check the stuff out especially the sale I always find some good bargains there. This is priced at £32.00 for the set and unfortunately it can not be sold separately but I think it’s actually better as a set. I loved everything about this it held me in very well and the high waisted pants fit perfectly no joke. If your going abroad I would recommend this. ( 10/10 )
